Magic Is the Right Person to Turn Lakers Around

I have quite a few friends who are big fans of the Los Angeles Lakers.   Upon hearing the news of Magic Johnson being named head of basketball operations and firing general manager Mitch Kupchack and former head of basketball ops Jim Buss, I’m sure they danced in the streets the rest of the day….

Loved the Cousins Deal, More So if it Were Boston

I am still in the state of shock over the DeMarcus Cousins trade. ¬†How in the world did the New Orleans Pelicans manage to pry him from the Sacramento Kings for what was essentially a tomato can, a pair of sneakers, and some tape? It doesn’t matter to me how the Pelicans only had to…

How to Fix the Knicks

My beloved New York Knicks is a hot mess, and that’s being TOO kind. Let’s forget the James Dolan-Charles Oakley fiasco for a minute.  My Knicks have been stinking for a long time.

Tom Brady: the Greatest NFL Player

This is going to be a rather brief post because this is something that shouldn’t be too difficult to debate over.  In leading the New England Patriots to a 34-28 overtime win in last night’s Super Bowl, QB Tom Brady became the first dude at his position to win five Super Bowls.  That’s one more…
