Wesley Matthews' Athletic Mom

5

Wes' mom doesn't lack for self confidence and claims to have once produced a 50pts/50 reb. game. We'll just have to take her word on that one, but it is a documented fact that she is a multiple Big-Ten champ and a national champion in the 400-meter run. She also manages Matthews' professional affairs.

Sport and Spirituality

1

The subject of sport is often thought of as the union of two powerful forces: the body and the mind. This piece focuses on a third facet often over overlooked: the spiritual. It's an interesting, well written and thought provoking read.

Crazy Trade Fodder

Report card : Kevin Durant

Remember the hot debate over Kevin Durant or Greg Oden on this site as draft night drew nearer? They were touted as the two best prospects in a decade. We didn't know for sure how KP was going to...

For Stat Geeks Only

As opposed to evaluating a particular player based on statistics, I thought it would be interesting to place a value on the statistic itself. For example an ASSIST, by its very nature, would have a...

Sportsmanship or Gamesmanship?

NBA basketball has rules. They were instilled for the safety of the players and to provide a level standard of play for both teams. We all know the rules are not strictly enforced and much is left...

Off the bench

An Oden-sized can of worms

The recent chatter concerning Greg Oden's bulking up has raised some questions for me:How much is Odie "owned" by the Blazers? Is it all spelled out explicitly in his contract? Where do Greg's...

Hypothetical situation: You're coach McMillan. It's March 14, 2008. The Oden-less Blazers have surprised everyone and played with remarkable chemistry and teamwork to compile a 28-38 record. They...

The Obsesssive Greg Oden

This may have been around before but it's a revealing glimpse into Odie's various passions. Of special interest is his need for sleep. Doesn't sound like a recent development. Also, he has a...
