    Brian Scalabrine is Better at Basketball Than You

    Field goal gunner would be the best. You are expected to fail 99% of the time anyway.

    New Euro Super league to be announced Sunday

    I know that with Glazer, Henry and Kroenke it is easy to put this at the feet of American ownership, but I do think that ignores the issue of the general fact that global soccer has an incredible corruption and greed problem that often works against the best interest of fans and the sport in...

    New Euro Super league to be announced Sunday

    Wouldn't a possible idea be to have some form of play-off legs for 'elite' teams that didn't qualify? Cash out with a big game(s) early in the season between big clubs, and at least have some form of merit be involved with UCL qualification?

    Brian Scalabrine is Better at Basketball Than You

    There was an OKC vs LAC playoff series where Durant kept trying to post-up CP3 but CP3 kept winning those battles. It was an unbelievable performance.

    New Euro Super league to be announced Sunday

    The Globe article today on fan dissent on the decision said that the FSG declined to comment to The Globe on the criticism LFC fans have had for the proposal. That to me is really embarrassing. It said something like "FSG declined to comment on the story, and referred The Globe to the release...

    Brian Scalabrine is Better at Basketball Than You

    Imagine just thinking you would post up Mugsy? As if he hasn't faced that question for 30+ years as he played at the highest level of basketball against the biggest, most athletic people are society has to offer? He would know every trick in the book, even at 50, to prevent you from just using a...

    If anyone can set the standard for doing what is right and putting people ahead of profits, it is Roman Abramovich.

    How would you structure European football? (Super League alternatives)

    Loaning players is also a viable way for lower league sides to compete without having to break the bank. I actually really enjoy the system, and one of the reasons WHU have found their way into a UCL spot at the moment is because of how great Lingard has been for them.

    How would you structure European football? (Super League alternatives)

    Not counting the events of the past week, my number one issue as a fan of soccer is the disparity in spending between the top teams and the lower teams. In particular, smaller clubs that do a great job developing young players not being able to retain their players once they become good enough...

    2020-2021 NBA Game Thread

    There were certainly PGs who jacked up a lot of shots, but Curry I think decisively provided a model that showed people you could win with a PG taking so many shots. The Francis/Marbury types certainly existed, but they were not nearly as prolific and also never won anything. If Iverson played...

    2020-2021 NBA Game Thread

    Looking at the Top 250 scoring seasons in NBA history on B-Ball Reference. Pre-Curry the only true PGs to crack the list were Oscar, Dave Bing, Tiny Archibald and Arenas. Post-Curry you have Curry, Irving, IT, Dame, Trae Young and then some fringe-PG types in Luka and Harden. Perhaps more...

    2020-2021 NBA Game Thread

    Curry is undoubtedly the greatest shooter ever. There isn't an argument for anyone else except maybe Oscar Schmidt, who you can't even compare to Curry. Perhaps if Bird played in the 2010s, he would have played similar to Curry, but even then I kind of doubt it since they were stylistically very...

    Watching the highlights from the Golden State game. Embiid was completely useless on defense against Curry. He never stepped up to help whenever his man (usually Draymond) set a screen for Curry, leaving Curry's defender to try and scramble around Green's borderline-illegal screens while Curry...

    2020-2021 NBA Game Thread

    Curry is probably a credibly Top 12 player all-time for me. Hard to argue with 2 MVPs and 3 rings. I think you could make a pretty credible argument he is better than Kobe, who is painfully overrated by most people. Jerry West on the other hand... When people say Curry is the best shooter of...

    Brian Scalabrine is Better at Basketball Than You

    When you start talking about the world's tallest people, you are often talking about people who have some sort of growth disorder that can often make them physically handicapped. Humans simply cannot be that big without losing a lot of motor skills or coordination that would make it necessary...

    Bill Simmons: Valuing Trades More Than Friendships

    Well every post in this thread is about Bill making some comment about cancel culture. You would think he was a talking head on FOX News if you only read that last page of this thread.

    The Red Sox will be wearing yellow and blue uniforms on Patriots' Day weekend

    The current regular Red Sox uniforms, at least for young people, are considered very, very boring. There is a reason the NBA has trended in the direction of more bright, neon-style uniforms. Do they all look great? I don't think so, but they are what is in fashion and similar to the popular...
