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. The newly-available and potential players for this year's...
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...

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),...
Dallas, Texas, December 3rd – Walking into an empty American Airlines center almost 2 hours before tipoff, I looked up at the bold, white letters, shining overhead, spelling out “PRESS ONLY.” My accomplice for the evening was Bill Cox IV ’17, his face flushing bright red as two women at a table asked for our media credentials. Eager to...
Towards the beginning of the NFL season, I wrote an article that posed the question of who should be the starting quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys, the rookie sensation Dak Prescott or the seasoned veteran Tony Romo. Now, this question has been answered. Tony Romo recently held a press conference where he announced that he would be handing the starting...
