De'Aaron Fox Not Playing In NBA 2K Tournament Makes This Thing Trash

De'Aaron Fox Not Playing In NBA 2K Tournament Makes This Thing Trash

De’Aaron Fox is the NBA’s premier gamer.

There’s no reason he shouldn’t have been the obvious favorite in the NBA’s makeshift “2K” tournament, but inexplicably he’s not even in the 16-player field.

National social-distancing mandates have led the NBA to try to create innovative forms of entertainment for their fans during this break in action. While the 10-day tournament is a resourceful idea,...

It's On To The Elite 8 As Our Sports Logo Challenge Marches On

It's On To The Elite 8 As Our Sports Logo Challenge Marches On

After ranking the primary logos of all 123 teams in the four major sports leagues in North America (1-40 , 41-80 , 81-123 ), it only made sense to put them all into a bracket and have a tournament. So, that’s just what we did.

To fill out the field and get to 128 teams, five wild cards were slotted into the field: the defunct Hartford Whalers, Montreal Expos, Quebec Nordiques, Seattle Pilots,...

They Were Great, But Not That Great: The 10 Most Overrated Players In The NBA Since 1990

They Were Great, But Not That Great: The 10 Most Overrated Players In The NBA Since 1990

Let’s clear up a couple of things here before anyone starts calling for the heads of any of the writers who put together this list:

We appreciate that many players on this list hold a special place in the hearts of many fans. We know that many of you will disagree. But you’ll get over it. We also understand that all of these guys are/were among the greatest basketball players on...

Stephon Marbury Is Getting NYC 10 Million Masks, An Act of Generosity That's Far From New Territory For Him

Stephon Marbury Is Getting NYC 10 Million Masks, An Act of Generosity That's Far From New Territory For Him

On March 29, Stephon Marbury announced his plan to provide his hometown of New York City 10 million masks to aid COVID-19 health care providers and first responders.

Speaking on video from China, Marbury, who grew up in Coney Island, Brooklyn, said: “I’ve lost loved ones to this invisible monster. I have a cousin who died yesterday due to the coronavirus. My family is dealing with a very...

As Lionel Messi Shows, The Weight of Philanthropy Has Fallen On Athletes. But Where Are Team Owners? Ya Know, The Ones With The Real Money

As Lionel Messi Shows, The Weight of Philanthropy Has Fallen On Athletes. But Where Are Team Owners? Ya Know, The Ones With The Real Money

Here’s a dirty little secret:

Sports owners, or governors as they’re referred to in the NBA, don’t make the bulk of their money from sports. For instance, Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank co-founded Home Depot, and Cleveland Cavaliers governor Dan Gilbert is the man behind Quicken Loans.

Franchise revenue is their “play money” because their “real money” comes from other places. It’s the...

No Opening Day, No Sports...My Center Won't Hold

Important disclaimer: I acknowledge this is far from the most consequential aspect of the shelter-at-home policies under which half of this country and many others around the world are enduring. And I’m aware that I happen to be one of the lucky ones in that I’m nor anyone that know personally have been infecting with the coronavirus, and that I still get to work, which sadly so many of my...

You Know What's More Stupid Than Trump Saying The World Will Be Back To Normal In Three Weeks? Listening To Him

You Know What's More Stupid Than Trump Saying The World Will Be Back To Normal In Three Weeks? Listening To Him

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says “we are not flattening the curve,” and talks about his state hitting peak cases of coronavirus in two to three weeks. The Tokyo Olympics, set to begin July 24, have been canceled. Seventeen states have ordered residents to “shelter in place,” with another 10 states issuing partial shutdowns.

Sounds pretty grim, right? But, wait, there is hope!

President Trump,...

Quarantine TV: What Sports to Watch For Us Shut-Ins

Quarantine TV: What Sports to Watch For Us Shut-Ins

This past Sunday — sandwiched somewhere in between DJ sets from Derrick “D Nice” Jones’ at his now epic, #FOMO-worthy “Home School” quarantine parties on Instagram Live — CBS did its best to try to help us fill the March Madness void. It aired two instant classics. The first game — Kansas’ 75-68 OT-win over Memphis in 2008 — featured a handful of players selected in that year’s NBA Draft...

It’s Time We Stop Lying To Ourselves. Basketball Is Over And The NBA Isn’t Coming Back

It’s Time We Stop Lying To Ourselves. Basketball Is Over And The NBA Isn’t Coming Back

It’s only March, and Kobe Bryant’s death isn’t even the biggest story in sports, let alone the NBA.

That’s how crazy 2020 has been. And since extraordinary times require extraordinary measures, it’s time for NBA Commissioner Adam Silver to shut this thing down, for good.

On Thursday evening, the list of NBA players that have tested positive for COVID-19 doubled. The Denver Nuggets have...

The Nets Getting Coronavirus Tests Shows Just How Screwed Up Our Society Is

The Nets Getting Coronavirus Tests Shows Just How Screwed Up Our Society Is

Will Kevin Durant and the Brooklyn Nets be a rallying cry as the sick and the poor rise up to eat the rich?

There were murmurs of disbelief after the Utah Jazz tested 58 employees in the wake of Rudy Gobert testing positive. That was explained by Oklahoma state health officials, who said the Jazz did not receive special treatment, and that, with Gobert testing positive, the threat of players...

Yeah, The Optics Suck, But Athletes Getting Tested Went A Long Way to Waking People Up

Yeah, The Optics Suck, But Athletes Getting Tested Went A Long Way to Waking People Up

While it surely is a sign of something broken in our society that NBA teams like the Brooklyn Nets and celebrities are able to be tested for coronavirus, even when showing no symptoms, while much of the general public cannot get access to testing, the problem to focus on is much more the latter than the former.

The tests that have happened and are happening are a good thing. On Wednesday,...

Shenanigans: This is How Bored Athletes are Passing Time While They Can't Play Ball

Shenanigans: This is How Bored Athletes are Passing Time While They Can't Play Ball

The global stoppage of sports due to the COVID-19 pandemic has left many feeling the same way: bored.

And it’s apparent that some of these out-of-work athletes need a new way to pass the time.

Giannis Antetokounmpo is now playing the guitar and his chords sound as bad as SZA with no autotune.

Ranking the Best Logos in the Four Major Sports - Part I (The Good)

Ever feel like ranking all 123 primary team logos from across the four major sports leagues? Well, now that we’re all shut-ins and those leagues aren’t playing, it’s a nice way to pass the time in a way that isn’t explicitly worrying about the pandemic or any of the other crises in the world. So, yay for this. And if you disagree with any of the rankings here, please know that you are wrong....

Did NBA players shame their billionaire team owners into social decency?

Did NBA players shame their billionaire team owners into social decency?

When the risks associated with the spread of COVID-19 forced the NBA to suspend the season last Wednesday, it was clear that the majority of the players and executives that occupy the top one percent of American wealth would not be significantly impacted.

What was not immediately clear is how the play stoppage would affect the thousands of arena workers, many of whom undoubtedly live...

The World Might Be Coming To An End, But Here Are The Places You Can Still Bet On Sports

The World Might Be Coming To An End, But Here Are The Places You Can Still Bet On Sports

You might have noticed that there is a lot going on in the world. Even though everything has been cancelled.

From a gambling standpoint, (yes, we know, gambling really is the least important of all the least important things right now, but this pandemic can’t last forever, can it? More on that later.) with nearly all sports shut down, you might be reduced to searching for a place to bet the...

When The NBA Returns, How Will The League And Teammates Deal With Rudy Gobert?

When The NBA Returns, How Will The League And Teammates Deal With Rudy Gobert?

The internet lasts forever.

And that’s a lesson that Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert has unfortunately learned. I’m sure you’ve probably seen it. But for those that haven’t, there’s a video of Gobert “jokingly” touching every microphone and piece of recording equipment after he finished a recent interview session with the media.

In his mind, he thought making light of the COVID-19...

Screw It. Now That Coronavirus Has Ruined Everything, Let's Expand All Playoffs To Include Every Single Freakin' Team.

Screw It. Now That Coronavirus Has Ruined Everything, Let's Expand All Playoffs To Include Every Single Freakin' Team.

It was Major League Baseball that got the conversation started about expanding playoffs, and the NFL got on board when it included additional wild-card teams in its proposed collective bargaining agreement. At the time, it seemed for all the world like a stupid cash grab that would dilute the special nature of playoff action, but now in the cold light of having no sports at all now?

Eh, it...
