Cavaliers NBA champs?

The news was grim. Harvey Pekar, the lovable loser from Cleveland had cancer. Then came a feeble knock on the door and God put the movie on pause. “Otto, great to see you again,” said God as he shook the old man’s hand. “Please come in.” God and the late, great Cleveland Browns quarterback Otto Graham pulled […]

A year ago Tyson Chandler didn’t do much of anything with the Knicks, but since returning to the Dallas Mavericks he’s a man possessed.

The Knicks are 4-19 and getting punchy. The triangle offense isn’t catching on but that isn’t the only problem Phil Jackson and rookie coach Derek Fisher have to deal with.

God to Kobe Bryant: “You’re Not Leaving Unscathed”

God, wearing his Kobe Bryant jersey stood at mid court at the spacious Heaven Center Arena, bounced the rock four times, and took a deep breath.  Then with a smooth fluid motion he punted it like a football — right through the hoop. “Way to go!” yelled former Miami Dolphins punter Reggie Roby. God took […]

Comments Off on “Sixers 0-17? This Is Getting Out Of Hand”: God

God had the Sixers on his mind as he strolled past a tennis court whistling the theme song from the TV comedy “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.” He paused where Arthur Ashe was giving serve pointers to Elena Baltacha. “Great day for a match guys!”  Ashe and Baltacha smiled and waved.
