Why the Fans Should Not Choose the NBA All-Stars

Speaking out against the democratic process is not a popular road to travel down in the United States. Democracy itself is built upon the idea that a majority of individuals can make wise decisions that favor the country as a whole. This article is not meant to turn the concept of American democracy on its […]

NBA Goliaths Duke it out in a Game for the Ages

The basketball gods answered the prayers of every NBA fan last night. In the post-game words of Spurs coach Gregg Popovich: “It was one hell of a game.” Looking back at the series, the Heat seemed destined to win Game 6.

That seems to be the train of thought of the overwhelming majority in the USA, but after watching the London 2012 Olympics, I beg to differ. The ladies dominated the USA gold medal count, […]

Basketball as a universal sport

Basketball is a universal sport. It crosses language barriers. It’s more than just a game. Well, at least that’s what the NBA advertises and claims. However, after spending a couple months in London, I quickly realized the faults in those statements. Try to find a free, 24/7 basketball court in South Kensington in London—they don’t […]
