Rivera is not just a great baseball player, he is the best at his position by a significant margin. Sure, he has peers — just not in MLB.
At a time when youngsters are force-fed the mantra that there are no losers, that the score is incidental and every team gets trophies, we have LeBron James as the global, athletic avatar.
Matt Harvey isn’t the next Roger Clemens, Zack Wheeler isn’t the next A.J. Burnett and LeBron James isn’t the next Michael Jordan.
Of course, Miami could still win this series, and it is still favored to do so. But win it must. James’ legacy is on the line, because June is when legacies are built. Just ask Jordan.
The argument about whether LeBron James will ultimately be better than Michael Jordan continues to gain steam. But Dennis Rodman, Jordan’s former teammate with the Bulls, doesn’t want to hear it. To him, it’s an asinine argument.
Former NBA star Dennis Rodman brought his basketball skills and flamboyant style — neon-bleached hair, tattoos, nose studs and all — on Tuesday to the isolated Communist country with possibly the world’s drabbest dress code: North Korea.
Being the latest does not make you the greatest. If you wipe the faerie dust of projection, then you’ll see that MJ was singular, monolithic, and without peer.
In a weekend filled with the NBA’s greatest players, Jordan was the topic no one could stop talking about.
Torri Hunter answers the question “is he bitter about the Josh Hamilton Deal?” An ESPN commentator takes things too far. No, this time we really mean it. And find out some of the ridiculous ways […]
J.R. Smith is normally the guy watching Carmelo Anthony hit the game-winning shot, not the one knocking it down. But with Anthony nursing a lacerated finger, the Knicks turned to Smith for the last shot and the eight-year NBA veteran delivered.
The game hasn’t passed Jerry Stackhouse by just yet. The Nets’ swingman played key roles off the bench in consecutive statement victories.
All those comparisons to John Starks seemed premature, but the 2012-13 J.R. Smith is finally deserving of being compared to one of the most popular Knicks of all-time.
Obama raised $3 million with the help of the players, who included NBA-great Michael Jordan and former Knicks Walt Frazier and Bill Bradley. NBA Commissioner David Stern also was there.
Better than the 1992 Dream Team? Hardly. The United States Olympic basketball team appears to be like well-appointed London tourists who have first-class tickets to all the prime Olympic events.
It’s pointless to compare the 2012 Men’s Olympic basketball roster to the 1992 “Dream Team.” USA’s current roster has their own challenge in front of them.
