Bryant and Wambach will be compelling Olympic storylines

It’s only fitting that Kobe Bryant and Abby Wambach, two of the biggest sports stars of the past few decades, are still making headlines as we start to look towards the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics. Bryant, 36, wants to go for one more gold medal, but only if he earns his spot, according to USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo.... Read More

Forecasting the USWNT’s Future

If you were one of the 24.3 million Americans who tuned in for the FIFA Women’s World Cup Final last Sunday night, the celebratory aura probably hasn’t washed away yet. The players have ventured across North America since their 5-2 victory over Japan. The entire team visited Los Angeles for a victory pep rally on Tuesday and is traveling to... Read More

For Warriors, it’s Closing Time

Being up 3-2 in the NBA Finals is a precarious position to be in. Teams up 3-2 may be 35-8 all-time in Finals series, but two of those defeats have occurred in the last six seasons, and the team with their backs against the wall forces a Game 7 43 percent of the time. The scary part for these Golden... Read More

Green, Dellavedova are Most Polarizing Finals X-Factors

In an NBA Finals full of supporting-cast players ready to make an impact, Draymond Green and Matthew Dellavedova have stirred things up the most in these playoffs. In Golden State’s corner, there’s Green, whose excellent basketball IQ and awareness are often overlooked due to his oft-brash personality.

With LeBron James one win away from his sixth NBA Finals appearance (he will be the 33rd player in NBA history to go to six or more Finals), it makes sense to compare this Cavaliers team to the previous five teams he led to the biggest stage in basketball. I could have compared the 2015 Cavs to the ’07 Cavs... Read More

Ovi Should Have Taken the Marshawn Route

Alex Ovechkin and Marshawn Lynch are almost polar opposites, but Ovi sure could have learned from “Beast Mode” going into the Washington Capitals’ Game 7 against the New York Rangers. The superstar left winger, who is favored to win his fourth Hart Trophy as league MVP next month, guaranteed a win over New York in the series-deciding game. His Caps... Read More

Bulls Face Nightmare Scenario

After the Cleveland Cavaliers announced that Kevin Love would not be available for the Eastern Conference semifinals (and likely the entire playoffs) with a shoulder injury, and the NBA announced that J.R. Smith would be suspended for two games for striking Jae Crowder of the Celtics in the head, one team appeared to benefit: Chicago. On Monday afternoon the Bulls... Read More

Celtics, Bruins are perfect examples of sports irony

In high school, my English teachers used to rant that students didn’t understand the element of irony. We were barred from highlighting it in our essays and the adults cringed when they heard us use it incorrectly. After following the 2014-15 Celtics and Bruins seasons, I now clearly understand an ironic turn of events. You almost have to laugh when... Read More
