Tim Brown retiring with the Oakland Raiders: makes my day. Possibly the second best wide reciever of all-time decides to retire with the team he played 16 of his 17 NFL seasons with.

Is it me or should Andrew Bogut: get a few good NBA seasons under his belt BEFORE he disrespects the players who helped pave the way for a big Australian to play ball.

Atlanta 87, Indiana 85

And related to the article. I consider myself a true Pacers fan and watch nearly every game they play, but I agree it is very frustrating to watch a team with so mcuh talent take games off like that. I wouldnt go as far as saying I won't watch another game until the playoffs but the thought crosses my mind everytime they do this.

Football for Jihadists

Playoffs don't need Berman's embellishments

They should put him back,back, back, back, back, back, back,back,back, back, back, back, back, too where ever they found him. He truely is annoying! posted by DAB I think DAB needs a sedative

I don't think this line of reasoning really sticks. I mean, Nowitzki, Howard, Daniels, and Finley didn't have a "noticeable drop" in offense, their defense did pick up however, but that may be more attributable to Avery Johnson's emphasis on Defense vs. Nellie's total lack of, or it could be that Nash was a sieve. Yes, that is still 4 offensive threats that must be guarded. Joe Johnson wouldnt have that in Atlanta.

Im not convinced that Joe Johnson is as good as he looked last year. His 17 points per game came on a team where he could score so many points in a game off of fast breaks. The real question is how many points can Joe Johnson score on a team without Steve Nash to pass the ball, and without Amare Stoudemire and Shawn Marion to take defensive pressure of him.

Kenny Rogers is free to pitch again.

i still find it funny though that even with the arbitrator reducing his days off, his consequence is still more severe than the players caught on steroids. You could even make the case that the media made him look worse than someone on steroids. Just saying...

What happens when NBA GMs play fantasy basketball?

I started to read this trade rundown the other day and i thought to myself "Whatever. I'll figure out who went where once the season starts."

Toss Out All The Hall Of Shamers

Now if they knowingly used them while the rules were in force then by all means punish them . So is that sending the message that as long as there's a loophole it's ok to cheat? I've already talked about this before but for a player like palmeiro who was around during the steroid era, you should, for lack of a better word, "grandfather" him in voting wise. Just look at how many people were probably using steroids while he played. Opposing pitchers, teammates, and so forth.
