NBA fans are getting everything they want for Christmas this year, with a quintuple-header of basketball action tipping off the 2011-12 season on December 25th. But the fans aren't the only ones getting cool Christmas presents this year. It looks like Dwyane Wade and Carmelo Anthony will be rushing down to the tree on Christmas morning and unwrapping some exclusive holiday sneakers from Jordan Brand. And we've got a preview of the shoes right here!
Is it possible for a running back to be the only reason why a team is winning games?
First thing’s first, let’s name the one person that is accomplishing this feat: Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew. This bowling ball-like running back has been one of the only reasons why the Jaguars have won any games. More »
Well football fanatics, this is the end my friends. Due to some holiday scheduling quirks, the Professor won’t be around for the last couple weeks of the season. I will leave you with these rankings as my last of the year. It makes sense this way, too, going out after one of the more unpredictable weeks of the season. There were more upsets this past weekend than we see in most NCAA Tournaments.
But all of the surprises didn’t shake up the rankings as much as you may have expected. To clarify: a team can beat another team and still sit below them in the power rankings. That’s because these rankings reflect the big picture, not just week-to-week results. The Packers may have lost to the Chiefs, but that doesn’t mean the Packers aren’t still a top five NFL team. Which spot in the top five exactly? You’ll just have to keep reading to find out.
So happy holidays and a happy new year and I’ll see all of you in 2012 for the playoffs!

Two of these three statements are true, can you guess which ones? 1) The Green Bay Packers lost to the Kansas City Chiefs. 2) The Indianapolis Colts beat the Tennessee Titans. 3) Cats love dogs. If you think you have the NFL figured out, let me know what your formulas are, because I sure don’t have many explanations for what went down in Week 15. Let’s try to figure it out anyway. Here we go…
The NBA is back!!! WHOO!!! WHOO!!! WHOO!!!
Sorry, deep breath.
OK, now that I got that out of the way, I have even more good news to share with b-ball fans. In honor of the NBA tipping off on Christmas day, I have the perfect present for basketball fans: the SKLZ Pro Mini Hoop System.
Have you ever heard the saying “Defense wins championships”? I’m pretty sure Alabama and LSU have. Defense is how both teams got to the BCS National Championship game.More »
