Ichiro's Big Moment Was A Little Awkward Ichiro's Big Moment Was A Little Awkward

The Oakland A’s and Seattle Mariners played a real, regular-season baseball game in Tokyo this morning, but it still had the whiff of an exhibition game. That’s probably due to the fact that it took place so far away and so long before MLB’s actual opening day, but it was also due to Ichiro Suzuki’s involvement.

These days it’s hard to believe that J.R. Smith and the Cleveland Cavaliers were ever at the center of NBA fans’ attention, but it wasn’t so long ago that this was the case. Of course I am not referring to the time LeBron James was Smith’s teammate and brought a title to Cleveland, but to the time J.R. Smith threw a…

LeBron James Suffers Latest Humiliation At The Hands Of Mario Hezonja LeBron James Suffers Latest Humiliation At The Hands Of Mario Hezonja

It was all set up for LeBron James, nearing the end of a crappy first season with the Los Angeles Lakers, to have another one of his moments. He loves to craft highlights on the Knicks’ home floor, and to talk afterwards about how much “the Mecca” means to him as—as a student of basketball history or whatever. So…

Nikola Jokic Is The God Of The Hideous Game-Winner Nikola Jokic Is The God Of The Hideous Game-Winner

The Pistons Have Played Like Stepped-In Dog Shit For Two Straight Games The Pistons Have Played Like Stepped-In Dog Shit For Two Straight Games

Just four days ago, the Detroit Pistons clobbered the Bulls 131-108 at home, extending what had been a surprisingly nice little run of games for such a terminally mediocre franchise. That win over the Bulls was Detroit’s 12th in 15 games, and they were starting to look like a team deserving of a playoff spot, rather…

Report: The Lakers Actually Wanted Good Players Instead Of The Bad Players They Signed Report: The Lakers Actually Wanted Good Players Instead Of The Bad Players They Signed

The Warriors Had Another Weird One, And Now It's Time To Read Steve Kerr's Lips The Warriors Had Another Weird One, And Now It's Time To Read Steve Kerr's Lips

The Warriors added to a very odd and possibly concerning stretch of games last night with a 115-111 loss to the Phoenix Suns, who really stink. This loss followed a 122-105 demolition of the Nuggets on Friday night that was supposed to signal a return to form, as it was preceded by an embarrassing 33-point loss at…

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. has already proven many times over that he is capable of hitting major-league pitching, and yet he will be doomed to spend the first month or so of the season toiling away in the minor leagues while the Blue Jays game his arbitration eligibility.
