If we learned nothing else, we learned that the primary result of the NFL Lockout has been multiple avoidable injuries. The owners never suffered, the players did. The sloppy play of the preseason and the first few games of the regular season has shown us what happens when players are not able to work with NFL trainers …
For the record, I am aware that the NBA is a business. I believe that players should feel free to make the decisions that are best for them and their families. You’ll notice that I’m not mad at LeBron because he left Cleveland. I probably would have stayed, but that’s just me.

Who knew that a workshop functions the same way as a competitive sport? I am writing this while sitting through (I mean, in) a workshop with 6 others, including the presenter.

A little over a year ago I wrote this, and I stand behind every word. Kobe Bryant is the best player in the NBA today, and a superstar in his own right. Michael Jordan is a legendary Hall of Famer, and still has the most popular athletic shoe brand after all these years. Ever wonder why people insist on comparing Kobe Bryant to Michael Jordan? Let’s explore why this is NOT something to do.
