Yes way, Jose

by

Kyrie Irving

Who’s the best Raptors PG ever? Most will look at his ROY trophy and Nike campaign and say Damon Stoudamire. Others will remember the stepback crossover, heart of a warrior, and endearing nickname and say Alvin Williams. But there’s a very convincing argument to be made for the man currently running the show, Senor Jose Calderon.


Raptors Boxing Day Blowout!!!

Kyrie Irving

This time of year, it’s Christmas, Chanukah, Kwanzaa, the last day of school, and New Years Eve that get all the love. But I say screw that. Boxing Day’s my sh*t.


I’ll bet on Ed Davis…will you?

It’s an age-old debate rife with controversy, a taboo topic conversation piece alongside politics, religion, and your wife’s sister. What makes us who we are? To what can we attribute our successes or blame our failures? It’s obvious to most that they aren’t mutually exclusive. In some cases nature takes the lead, while in others nurture is predominant.

Kyrie Irving

A few weeks ago, my wife and I went out for dinner. Good food, good wine. A really nice, relaxing time. We ran into friends on the way home. My buddy, another near-obsessive basketball fan, asked me if I saw Bargnani’s line. Huh? There was no game tonig…

You may get noticed for setting futility records, but being a spectacular failure won’t make you matter… or make you money.

Bargnani’s Little Big Planet

Kyrie Irving

When he’s not not shaving or eating a spicy meatball, Andrea Bargnani likes to play games that he can actually win once in a while. Anyone play this game? Thoughts?

Time to shut ‘er down

I hate mayo. That’s my  big food phobia. It’s no secret, everyone who knows me knows I’m irrationally disgusted/fearful of the goopy, congealed, smelly grossness. The thought of it makes me cringe. It’s to the point where I won’t take the jar out of the fridge – that’s if I allowed it in my refrigerator.  I’d   …Continue Reading
