Presenting 'Magic Johnson: The Gathering'

By | 11 Comments

The sports world is abuzz with the news that a Magic-Johnson fronted group broke the dang old bank in order to purchase the Dodgers for over $2 billion, which is a figure so absurd that it may as well be written like a comic strip character says cuss words.

When Charles Barkley Realized Michael Jordan Was The Better Player

By | 28 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/04/25th-anniversary-of-michael-jordans-63-point-performance-in-boston-garden"> "If you ain't first, you're last." Long before said manifesto came to define Talladega Nights, my ninth grade history teacher ironically preached the same premise. Second place is never celebrated and playing to win is the only way to approach any obstacle in life, especially sports. The NBA, the one league where an individual megastar can turn the tides of a franchise, has become known equally as much for those who have reached the mountaintop as those who never capped off their career with the label of "champion." The record books speak volumes on the difficulty of achieving the feat. Throughout the past 30 years, <a href="http://www.nba.com/history/finals/champions.html">only eight teams</a> have captured the Larry O'Brien Trophy.
