He has a binding contract that will pay him more than $48 million combined this year and next to play with the Lakers until the summer of 2016. He also owns one …

notre-dame-cheerleaders-300x207

The Sports Bank’s college basketball season previews undergo a face lift this season. Rather than counting down the top 111 teams in 111 days, we will go conference-by-conference. *I’ve already counted down the*Pac-12,*Big 12,*SEC, and*AAC, and now turn my attention to the already new-look*ACC. After suffering through their first losing season in the Mike Brey …

Team USA holds Finland to 2-point quarter, dominates FIBA World Cup opener

SJ

No one gave Finland much chance to challenge the United States in Saturday’s opener of the FIBA World Cup of Basketball in Bilbao, Spain. Yet it’s doubtful that anyone expected the domination to reach such an extreme so early in an extremely comfortable 114-55 win. After an already impressive 31-16 first quarter in which Finland …

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar says an auction house is holding his awesome stuff hostage

blog

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and an L.A. auction house are disputing who owns the rights to some of the Lakers legend’s stuff, and one look at the list of memorabilia in question explains why this debate is so heated.

TROY: Donald Sterling is a Racist Bigot, but?

stlcardslogo

(Time to be a little controversial) My mind is blown by how many people in America have sheepishly bought into the political correctness that has outright infected this nation. I’m not one to engage in political talk, because I find that it’s useless (a middle ground is rarely ever met in politics, and politicians are …

The Sports Bank.net: Jaws coming to life off Cape Cod, Summer of sharks II

shark-cage-300x198

2001 was deemed summer of sharks; at least according to Time magazine. I know, younger readers are like “what’s a magazine?” There were four or five shark attacks that year which got a lot of press. That’s still very very low, and the percentage of sharks that have been know to attack man is miniscule. …

The Houston Rockets have badly whiffed on the offseason. So far.

blog

If Houston Rockets fans don’t think of what could have been, then they should be just fine. That takes a special kind of mind-warp, though. That’s some sort of cognitive dissonance at its absolute finest. For a while there, it appeared as if the Houston Rockets were well on their way toward fielding a starting …

TROY: Bulls Fans, Breathe a Sigh of Relief ? Carmelo Anthony is Staying with the Knicks

blog

I saw somebody use this (upcoming) logic on a forum recently: The Chicago Bulls’ offensive output is anemic,*ergo the addition of Carmelo Anthony*equals points (paraphrased). That’s the logic of the typical NBA fan who idealizes the real life game by conflating it with a video game mentality. In real life, it doesn’t work that way. …

LeBron: I’m coming back to Cleveland

SJ

Before anyone ever cared where I would play basketball, I was a kid from Northeast Ohio. It’s where I walked. It’s where I ran. It’s where I cried. It’s where I bled. It holds a special place in my heart. People there have seen me grow up. I sometimes feel like I’m their son. Their …
