It’s About Time, Michael Jordan

Michael Jordan caused quite a stir on social media yesterday.  After all, he did something yesterday that most of us thought he’d never do. He took a stand. In yesterday’s The Undefeated article, Jordan broke his silence on the shooting of unarmed Black people and the targeting of police officers.  Here is an excerpt of what…

Tim Duncan: the Best Power Forward

It seems like every time I go on a romantic vacation, something big happens in the world of sports.  So imagine me waking up this morning in the Cayman Islands (Grand Cayman) to the news of San Antonio Spurs power forward Tim Duncan retiring after 19 NBA seasons.
