If you are a Dallas sports fan, specifically a fan born after January 28, 1996, you have experienced a lot more let downs than celebrations. Aside from the Dallas Mavericks' unexpected championship and the Dallas Stars' Stanley Cup, Dallas has not had much success in the post-season. However, we have gotten close, REALLY close. We have actually gotten as close...
In the summer of 2017, Ice Cube will be launching a new professional basketball league, The BIG3. The BIG3 league has been labeled "The American Professional 3 on 3 Basketball League" and it sounds incredible. The players that have been listed to play in the league will make you cry tears of immense joy. This league is basically the NBA...
He is one of the greatest point guards in NBA history. He was the 2005-06 Rookie of the Year, 9x All-Star, 8x All-NBA team member, and an 8x All-Defensive team member, but he has never made it to the NBA Finals. He is second in career assists, first in career steals, and second in player efficiency, among active players....
On Friday, February 17th, at 7 p.m. ET, ESPN will broadcast the 2017 NBA All-Star Celebrity Game live from Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, LA. This event is usually met with extremely average attention, but I think the NBA can change that with a few wise selections in this year's game.

If I had to choose one thing to take away from that NFC Championship game it would be this: Matt Ryan will mess your life up and have no regrets. This is not opinion, this is fact. Last Sunday, Matty Ice led the Falcons to their second Super Bowl appearance and their first appearance in 18 years. You can not merely...
There is no denying that the previous all-star selection process needed some work. The solely fan-based process has been the law of the land for quite some time now, but it has produced some very questionable choices. I understand that the All-Star Game is supposed to be a game "for the fans," but Zaza freaking Pachulia almost got a...
Originally, I was going to title this article "Why Al-Farouq Aminu is the Greatest Player in the NBA," but then I realized that there is no question about it. I shouldn't have to even write an article to explain this, but I will anyway to give Al the respect he deserves. And yes, I call him Al. He follows me...
Well, the Cowboys made it back to the divisional round of the NFL Playoffs! Dallas fans could not have been more excited and optimistic heading into this year's postseason. However, their highly-anticipated Super Bowl run was quickly thwarted by the Green Bay Packers, again. The game was not necessarily hinged on one play like in the 2014 matchup (Dez caught it),...
