    There aren’t many higher accolades in the world of sports than having one’s uniform number retired, never to be issued again. It’s a special honor usually reserved for a truly one-of-a-kind player, a distinction that could not be more appropriate for a six-foot guard from Georgetown, Allen Iverson. Nobody could ever wear the No. 3…

    JAMES IVERSON DALEMBERT

    LeBron James clearly modeled much of his game after Michael Jordan. The two are in a league of their own when it comes to all-time dominant NBA players. LBJ recently sat down with Chris Broussard for an ESPN The Magazine piece where LeBron calls Jordan his favorite player growing up. Nothing all that revelatory there.…

    I don’t know what’s going on with Allen Iverson. One minute, he’s broke. The next, he’s got plenty of money stashed away. Later, he’s kidnapped his own kids, except he didn’t kidnap his own kids. All this is sandwiched around a profile from the Washington Post that should have just about anyone concerned for the…

    The Philadelphia 76ers have spent the past month conducting one of the most boring, uneventful, irrelevant coaching searches in the history of sports.
