A great gift for the holidays

In today’s era of nonstop information and updates, being a sports fan is great. No matter what time of day or year it is, you can always find some sort of story or update about whatever sport it is you are interested in. In addition to the major networks and enterprises like ESPN and ABC, […]

Back to Business

If there’s anything that last season taught us, it’s that teamwork matters. Even with the greatest player of our current time in LeBron James, the Heat couldn’t overcome the San Antonio Spurs in last year’s Finals. Better yet, they didn’t really come close, and that’s no slap in the face to the Heat, who had […]

Everybody, meet Taj.

Playing in his 5th season as a Chicago Bull, odds are you already know who Taj Gibson is. He’s been playing meaningful minutes since his first season, when he started nearly the entire year and played well enough to be named to the NBA’s All-Rookie 1st Team. He averaged 9 points and 7 rebounds, played […]

Time to Shine

March Madness remains to be one of the most exciting and relevant sporting events in this country. No matter who you are or where you work, people get invested in it. It’s also because there are thousands of different pools all around us, so taking a $5 or $10 chance to win a bunch of […]

I think it’s worth it

We try to go to at least one Bulls game a year. Since being together, Ashley and I have seen 3 games together: the first was at Madison Square Garden (and Ashley’s first NBA game), the next was the best Christmas present I’ve ever received, and the last time was seeing them easily beat the […]

JR

I still remember one of my first varsity basketball games in high school. I was a freshman and I was sitting near the end of the bench. I was on the JV team all year, but by January I started to practice with the varsity and after my JV games I would join the varsity […]

Tough Decisions

I knew something was strange when my friend from Cleveland sent me a message yesterday morning: ’What do you think of this trade?’ Since I’m a Bulls fan, I knew it had something to do with them. And because it came from my friend in Cleveland, I had a feeling it had something to do with […]

Learning Experiences

Monday night’s Nets-Pacers game was the second NBA game I’ve been to in the past two weeks, and neither game involved the Bulls. Two weeks ago I went to the Suns-Warriors game in Phoenix, and that was great for a few reasons: it was a close game until the final minute, I got to see […]

The Suns are surprising everyone

Usually when I travel for work I’m a little bummed. As much as I love to see new places, doing so without Ashley just doesn’t feel right. Luckily she’s been able to fly out and stay with me for some of the trips (Savannah & Tybee Island), but it usually doesn’t work out that way. […]

Nothin but time

“Time heals all things.” Or at least that’s what I tell people whenever they experience any sort of pain. I heard this quote years ago and it has always stuck with me, because really, time does heal all things. Things may be forever different after certain events (injury, death, etc.), but life doesn’t stop for […]

All Heart

When Ashley and I first started dating, she had no idea how much I loved basketball (Chicago Bulls included). She knew, but it wasn’t obvious until April 30, 2009. That night was the debut of Wolverine, which Ashley had wanted to see pretty badly. I don’t have much interest in comic books or the movies […]

You’re only as tough as your tweets

In light of the fiasco that’s occurring within the Miami Dolphins organization, the NBA decided to take a stand before any such thing corrupts one of its own teams. The Minnesota Timberwolves took it a step further and banned all sorts of hazing. Historically, at least in the NBA, rookies have always paid their dues […]

Some hoops to consider, part 1

In a league that includes 30 teams that EACH play 82 games, there is no shortage of information during the course of an NBA season. From the opening tipoff in late October until the final games in June, hoops heads everywhere will watch, listen, text, tweet, email, compare, complain, dissect, analyze, over-analzye, and do anything […]
