Last year, the Lakers fired Mike Brown very early in the season and replaced him with Mike D’Antoni. We all know what happened to the “Dream Team” concept last year, but D’Antoni and a team of relative unknowns started the 2013-14 season in grand fashion with a win over the Clippers. But, that and Derrick [...]

It’s been a whirlwind week of updates in a sporting world that is normally quiet in late June. The Stanley Cup Final concluded on Monday night. The Blackhawks’ Game 6 win against the Bruins was about the only normal thing to occur. The hammer dropped on former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez in [...]

Anyone who has perused the pages of SwollenDome.com or listening to me ranting on the radio or podcasts knows my affinity for the business side of everything I watch. I love watching dollars move in sports and entertainment, from ticketing to merchandise to the super-sized TV rates charged to the networks. One of the shows [...]

The Lakers put another jersey up into the rafters on Tuesday night. All ill feelings dissipated and Shaq was welcomed back to Staples Center for the pomp and circumstance. Oh, and the Lakers and Mavericks were set to renew the rivalry as they battle for the eighth seed in the Western Conference. As you’d expect, [...]

After watching the US Women’s victory over France, I set about the rest of my day and took care of some yelling, blogging and myriad other pre-vacation duties. As such, I didn’t see the ESPYs live (I think the replay is taping now). I did log in to check the Twitter scoreboard later in the [...]

Mark Cuban went radio silent for this year’s NBA Playoffs. He stayed in the background and let his players do the talking. Following Sunday’s win, Cuban made the biggest statement of all. He partied on South Beach with the Golden Ball. Look at the way the light reflects off of the glorious orb.

If I were a documentary maker, I’d set out in search of the elusive fourth quarter from LeBron James. It’s not like “Bigfoot” or “Nessie.” We’ve seen the man put up big numbers in the past. Just look at his close-out effort in the previous series against Chicago. For a spell in Game 5, we [...]

As we stand on the cusp of the deciding games in the NBA and NHL, I present a look back at one of the greatest championship celebration moments ever. We salute you, “Mad Dog.”

The FOX Fantasy Freaks are on at the top of the hour. FOX Sports Radio from 6-8a PT/9-11a ET. XM 169 What’s on the menu? – LeBron and the Disappearing Act – How about a new nickname, since “King” doesn’t seem to fit? That “Chosen One” thing doesn’t work out, either. – The Rashard Lewis [...]

This is a segment from CBS in Dallas from Wednesday night. In addition to chronicling the series and giving you a couple quick hits from Dallas players, there’s a shot of Dwyane Wade and LeBron James faking a cough. “Did you hear that?” Wade asks. Sure, James posted a triple-double on Thursday night. He came [...]

Where did he go? If you blinked, you missed LeBron James in Game 4. Sure, he continued his work on the defensive end and contributed rebounds and assists. But, James failed to assert himself offensively and watched as Game 4 slipped away. James was held to a playoff-low eight points in this, his 91st career [...]

On Wednesday night, the Lakers absorbed a huge blow to their quest for a third consecutive NBA title. The Mavericks’ bench played brilliantly, sparked by point guard J.J. Barea. Barea sliced through a lifeless Los Angeles defense. The legs of the big men appeared to be set in concrete, and Steve Blake was positively torched [...]
