    2020/21 UEFA Europa League: Galloping to Gdansk

    Weird lineup for Spurs today as they take on Austrian club LASK. A back four of Reguilon, Davies, Sanchez and Doherty? A midfield of Lamela, Hojbjerg and Winks? Bale, Vinicius and Lucas start up top? Joe Hart? View:

    John Thompson dead at 78

    I'm too young to really remember John Thompson, I was only 4 years old when he resigned from Georgetown. Over the years I heard about him, his relationship with Patrick Ewing and how he played a pivotal role in turning the fledgling Big East into the best conference in College Basketball, along...

    How do you feel about your club?

    With Champions League over and the 2019-2020 finally in the rear view, might as well do a assessment about how we all feel about our respective clubs and rate our confidence in them on a scale of 1 to 10. I'll start with mine. Club: Tottenham Hotspur Rating: 4 Spurs crashed to earth after...

    Match Week 34/35

    Who can possibly keep track of what match week it is? According the official EPL site, Matchweek 34 technically started on Tuesday and wraps up today, so let's just combine 34 and 35 this weekend into one thread, yes? Tottenham should totally beat a reeling Bournemouth side, but anything is...

    Matchday 31 Gamethread

    Tottenham faces West Ham and there is no reason Spurs shouldn't take all three points. Biggest change in Spurs lineup is Lo Celso/Lucas/Dele all starting with Bergwijn, Lamela and Winks on the bench. Eric Dier still improbably starts in front of Toby and Jan. View...

    Wes Unseld Dead

    NBA HoF player Wes Unseld has died. View: Unseld is one of those players who always gets brought up when you talk about guys who stats didn't tell the whole story. Averaging 10 ppg and 14 rpg for your career won't put many...

    Celtics looking into Capela

    I'm in the same boat. Having a lane-clogging Center probably isn't the way to go when you have a 6" point guard as your primary creator.

    How good was Kobe Bryant?

    I thought it would be interesting to have a discussion about Kobe's playing career and whether or not he is overrated, underrated or properly rated, and also a discussion in general about his strengths and weaknesses of his game. He is probably one of the most polarizing NBA players of all-time...

    NBA Ratings Slump; Does the NBA have a problem?

    As has been mentioned many times this season, viewership for NBA games on television are down from last season, pretty significantly. A telling sign came earlier this week, when the Saturday primetime game on ABC between the Lakers and Houston was down 10 percent in the ratings and 14 percent in...

    15 Years Ago Today

    The public was given perhaps the most rewatchable event in sports history: The Malice at the Palace. It is still completely unfathomable that this took place, even if there had been some warning signs in the decade leading up to it with some ugly fights that spilled into the stands. Obviously I...

    Place your dumb predictions here. We'll make fun of them later. * Clippers beat the Bucks in the Finals. Bucks beat the Sixers in a thrilling ECF series and Philly seriously has to consider trading either Simmons or Embiid in the off-season as their playing styles (no jumper for Simmons, too...

    NFL Week 7 Gamethread

    Mahomes went down with a knee injury and was immediately ruled out for the game. Flacco (more like the Denver O-Line) can't seem to get it together though.

    Maradona Documentary

    Will debut on Oct. 1 on HBO. I'm very excited for this; the Director, Asif Kapadia has made some great documentaries in the past, including Senna on Brazilian F1 driver Ayrton Senna, and Amy, on Amy Winehouse. I think the trailer makes the Maradona film more like Senna, in that it has no formal...

    2020 NBA Draft discussion

    Time to start thinking about the 2020 Draft, with the Celtics potentially getting some decent draft picks, although barring a disaster or a big trade, they probably don't have a great chance at the lottery. I know people already have their binkies, the top recruits are: (note the rankings are...
