Comments Off on How explosive is John Wall?

If you follow the NBA, the last four years or so it’s hard to go long stretches without hearing something about John Wall’s athleticism. He’s gotten some awfully large praise, aimed primarily at his speed. Wall himself says he’s the fastest player in the NBA; his head coach wonders if he’s the fastest ever!   […]

Examining past NBA players complaints that “all this new music sucks”

November 15, 2017


The NBA is an anomaly in the sports world. It’s the only major sport where past players routinely criticize current players, in terms of the ability of current players to play in the past.

How freaky was Kyrie Irving’s knee injury?

June 22, 2015


Late May to early June is my favorite time of year sports wise. I barely watch regular season hockey or basketball, but I always get into the playoffs. Playoff hockey has to be the best sport to watch. It’s fast, minimal timeouts, violent, glorifies beer and beards, and damn is it intense. Playoff basketball has […]

Why is Lebron the only one cramping?

June 6, 2014


Let’s get right to it. There’s no evidence cramping is caused by dehydration or electrolyte depletion. The Runner’s Body, a book I very much recommend, covers this well. That said, at the time the book was written, 2009, the hydration and electrolyte theories weren’t quite disproven. In 2010, Matt Fitzgerald, gave a small update to the […]
