General discussion on sports and assorted other matters.

  1. A parent in denial

    LaVar Ball just doesn't get it.

    It seems that Ball, who is milking his 15 minutes of fame on a daily basis, doesn't know when to keep his yap closed. He's ragged on the Lakers because they're losing and, in his warped mind, they're not using son Lonzo in the 4th quarter. Never mind that the rookie's struggles come with the territory. In La Loudmouth's world, Lonzo is the new star, and should be in the game at crunch time, struggling or not. He pulled youngest son LaMelo out of Chino ...

  2. The shaming of a lost season

    Today, Eli Manning's 210 game streak of consecutive starts comes to an end, and he's not even injured.

    No, as you're doubtlessly aware by now, Manning was benched by coach Ben McAdoo earlier this week in favor of Geno Smith, who was a colossal bust in 4 seasons with the Jets, and rookie Davis Webb, although Manning will be the backup for today's game at Oakland. Hours before game time, there are rumors that the Giants will cut ties with McAdoo after the game, and some are already ...

  3. Now, this is bowling shoe ugly......

    It was the final night of the regular season for Ice Cube's Big3 summer basketball league, which has a TV deal with FS1. In promoting his league, Cube challenged America's Worst Stage Parent, LaVar Ball, to a 4 point shooting contest, offering to buy several pairs of the overpriced Big Baller Brand sneakers if he lost.

    Now, neither of them put on a clinic in long range shooting, but by the end of the night, Ball ended up eating crow, exposed once again for the fraud he is, and Cube ...

  4. Since when do coaches teach bad behavior? (Or: What hath LaVar Ball wrought?)

    LaVar "Big Mouth" Ball has done it again. Worse, another coach is following his lead.

    Back home in his native California, Ball was hit with a technical in a game over the weekend, and, predictably, pulled his team off the court, forfeiting a game they were leading by a mere six points. This was the 3rd time this summer that Ball has taken this ridiculous tack. He's accusing the opponents of cheating, though no evidence has been presented to corroborate these claims. Instead, ...

  5. The white flag flies in Flushing

    The Mets have been plagued by injuries throughout this season, such that they've already conceded the NL East to Washington, and the wild card is almost certainly a pipe dream at this point, too. As the trade deadline approached, GM Sandy Alderson made a trio of deals, none of which send signals of hope to Met Nation.

    July 27: Lucas Duda is dealt to Tampa Bay for a minor league pitcher. Duda gets to go back to New York anyway, since the Rays are playing the Yankees, and shows the ...
