Sorry, shameless self-plug time.
I profiled the infamous (in NY) Charles Smith (http://nymag.com/daily/sports/2011/12/checking-in-with-charles-smith.html) for New York Mag sports section. If you know me, you'll know I'm a Jordan fanboy who talks about "The Flu Game", "The Double Nickel", and...Read more

1: i'm happy to have a platform to get out to the world that HK ISN'T CHINA. I'm so sick and tired of this western misconception that everyone Chinese worships Yao Ming. Please. Basketball's popularity in HK can be linked to Jordan's e...Read more
Man, this Joakim Noah/Cleveland feud is making the playoffs funnnn.
After he said Cleveland as a city, "sucks", he followed up tonight by asking a reporter "what, you think Cleveland's cool? I ain't hear no one come here for vacation. They hate me here, so? I got my friends".
This is Noah's "friend"
sorry, Cleveland. Noah...Read more

Rumors have been swirling for years that come July 2010, Lebron will leave his hometown team, the Cleveland Cavalier...Read more
ill be the inlier. lets go
you know what i learned lately? it's that if you reach transcendent greatness--you'll never be forgotten. it's this logic that has has people drop Pacino's name everytime we talking about great actors even though he has had a string of crap movies. but hey--he once made an offer you couldn't refuse and that was that. pacino's forever a legend.
the same logic applies to the strokes. now the strokes haven't fallen off in quality the way pacino's movies have, mind you. but there is this general thinking among m...Read more
