Posted on 27 Aug, 2013, by in Featured

Even though everyone saw it coming, hearing Tracy McGrady utter the words that announce his official retirement from the NBA makes it sting, like you expect it to when such a great player decided to leave the game, and pave the way for the endless Hall of Fame debates that might carry on for more than five years.

There was always some hope for Philadelphia 76ers fans to see Allen Iverson playing for them one more time. Iverson himself probably hoped he’d get to have some part to play in the NBA before finally calling it quits.

Not Saying Goodbye to the Sacramento Kings

Posted on 19 Aug, 2013, by in Featured

In the NBA, one great draft pick is enough plenty of times to change the fate of the franchise, which is why long playoff droughts aren’t that common.

Posted on 18 Aug, 2013, by in Featured

How much do Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo think about each other? Probably not as much as we’d like them to. Just as Real Madrid and Barcelona are huge rivals, it’s quite common to think that there’s some huge individual rivalry between the two best players in the world as well.

For anyone who was “worried” about Manchester United not living up to former standards due to the arrival of David Moyes, they probably forgot about Robin van Persie. Arsene Wenger had the opening match everyone expected Arsenal to have, while Simon Mignolet saved Liverpool from another first-match tragedy, showing how big of a difference the Reds made when they decided to change goalkeepers.

Few players hate to lose as much as Kobe Bryant does, and he alone, if his comeback from injury is successful, is worthy quite a lot of wins even for a damaged team like the Lakers. More
