Isiah Thomas

Keidel: Isiah Thomas Does Not Deserve To Own A Women’s Basketball Team

Just the idea that it looks logical to Dolan for Thomas to own a women’s basketball team speaks to the disconnect of the obscenely rich and absurdly inept.


Pete Rose

Keidel: I Used To Feel Bad For Pete Rose — Not Anymore

I used to feel sorry for Rose, banned from the very game he blessed. But it blessed him even more. And then he cursed it.


Alex Rodriguez

Keidel: Don’t Ever Compare A-Rod To Jeter — Even For A Hit

Stop comparing him to Jeter — even for a day, for an inning. Even for a hit. Especially the 3,000th hit.

Keidel: Aside From LeBron, Mark Jackson Had To Be Most Deflated

Generally, a new coach inherits the very vulnerable team that got the prior coach fired. Which is why, aside from LeBron, the most viscerally defeated or deflated man in the building was Mark Jackson.

Keidel: Former Knicks’ Contributions To NBA Finals Were As Bad As Advertised

If you need to know why LeBron James produced more offense for a team in the championship round than any in league history, just look at his most unsupportive, supporting cast.

Keidel: LeBron’s Legacy In Cleveland Seems To Be Being Left Short-Handed

When the ref tosses the ball up Tuesday night, LeBron James has 48 minutes to keep a public and poignant pledge he made to his hometown.


Alex Rodriguez

Keidel: Maybe It’s Time To Forgive A-Rod, Even If We Can Never Forget

A-Rod’s journey from messiah to pariah is amply archived, his crimes and misdemeanors laid across every sports desk and chopped into microscopic bits.


Darrelle Revis

Keidel: If Giants Don’t Make A Serious Run, They May Pass The Torch To The Jets

If the Giants don’t make a serious run — or pass — they may pass the torch to the Jets for the first time in a long time.

Deontay Wilder: My Life As A Heavyweight Boxer

Keidel: Can American Pharoah Revive Horse Racing?

Such is the problem with individual sports, sans teammates. They all ride on celebrities, no matter how many legs they use.

Keidel: Sport Of Kings Invades Queens

American Pharoah, the stud with the oddly spelled name, a mile and a half from history. The most heralded horse in the nation will be in New York tomorrow. And we need it.


Robinson Cano

Keidel: It’s Clear Now The Yanks Did Right Thing By Letting Cano Go West

Despite their almost historic impotence at second base, and no matter how longingly you look at the Mariners’ second baseman, the Yankees did the right thing by letting Robinson Cano go west.

Keidel: Eli Manning Deserves That Big, Fat Extension — Now!

The Giants’ corporate coda should take a back seat to common sense when it comes to their best and most important player.

Keidel: Wright Doesn’t Deserve To Symbolize Mets’ Snakebitten Ways

David Wright got a bad break with spinal stenosis. You would just think that he’d paid enough dues by now.

Keidel: No One Is More Motivated To Win Than LeBron James

All eyes are on LeBron. He’s not just trying to bring a trophy to Cleveland. He’s adding jewels to his crown, which he will one day try to match with Michael Jordan
