  • The Great Kentucky 'Haul' (a cautionary tale)

    Everyone knew that John Wall would be taken first by the Washington Wizards on Thursday night, making him Kentucky's first-ever overall No. 1 pick in NBA draft history. Considering that the last two Calipari-coached point guards (Jalen Rose and Tyreke...
  • NBA Finals Recap

    The NBA ended its 82-game regular season on April 14 and its postseason began on April 17. The league's 2010 champion was crowned on June 17, when the Celtics and Lakers played the 82nd game of this year's postseason. As I like to point out often...
