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 [...]

Harmon’ back at the microphone to wrap Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals and LeBron James’ push to the NBA Finals against the San Antonio Spurs. James’ tag-team partner, Dwyane Wade, emerged from his long Eastern Conference Finals hibernation to score 21 points. Jump into some Stanley Cup Final talk, the loss of Deacon [...]

Harmon returns from a fantastic SoCal weekend to chat up Stanley Cup Playoffs, Eastern Conference Finals and the sudden roadblock to a dynasty, weekend box office, “No Peacocking” and more. Get it. I started it by going to the “Rock N’ Brews” in my neighborhood and cranking up the rock. Listen to internet radio with [...]

In the end, does it matter? The Twitterverse was buzzing on Sunday as the sporting world awaited the “results” of the 2012-13 NBA MVP balloting. There was no drama. The games had already been played, so the coronation was the only thing awaiting the well-rested LeBron James. Truly, there could not have been a less [...]

As we embark on a new week of brilliance in the sporting world (stuff your sorry in a sack), I just want to recap some of the weekend highlights. 1. Dance recital: video-taping dad and guy heading to his assigned seat have to be separated. Cost of flowers if you failed to plan ahead was [...]

With the series tied 2-2 entering Tuesday’s game between the Heat and Pacers, NBA fans pondered a Conference Finals series without the powerhouse, star-driven Miami squad. That concern quickly drifted to the recesses of the their minds once the Heat started to pour it on in the second half of Game 5. Miami opened up [...]

Do you remember when Kobe Bryant broke his nose after being fouled by Dwyane Wade in the NBA All-Star Game? Well, Kobe was then forced to don a face mask in the subsequent games. He played in 11 games and scored his 29,000th career point behind the mask. Now, Bryant is auctioning off the mask [...]

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.

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 [...]

The Big Three got it done. You can spew hate against “The Decision.” You may deride LeBron James for his exit from Cleveland or mock Chris Bosh. I won’t begrudge you that. You’re entitled to your opinions. But, I will ask a simple question. Wouldn’t you move from Cleveland to Miami, pocket a pile of [...]

The matchup was set a little more than a week ago. Jokes circulated throughout the blogosphere and the Twitter-verse about the battle between “2 1/2 Men” and “Derrick Rose’s Chicago Bulls.” Be it a television show, off-Broadway play or film, you could just envision the poster. LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Derrick Rose received all [...]

I know there are numerous candidates for this week’s FMC, many of whom posted fantastic individual efforts on Wednesday night. Though I contemplated a hockey hero or a diamond star, I turned back to the court after watching several fantastic games. The Heat took down the 76ers in the first game of the night to [...]

The Heat certainly wanted to put behind Thursday’s meltdown against the Magic behind them. A trip to San Antonio and a test against the NBA’s top team would seem to the do the trick. What’s the old adage? “If you can’t get up for this game …” Forget about it. The Heat went into San [...]

Evidently, the dude in the stands forgot to hold up his four fingers … and Wednesday’s memo didn’t work The Heat built a seemingly insurmountable lead in Miami on Thursday night. The only question as the third quarter began was the margin of victory. Miami led by 24 points following a James dunk when things [...]

Can we let it go already? I understand that people are going to keep asking the questions. I recognize their need to get a soundbyte out there and lay the verbal smackdown on “the decision.” In the past week, Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson and countless other NBA legends have lined up to make their sentiments [...]

Stephen A. Smith put it up on the board a couple weeks back. Eventually, everybody else jumped onboard and started hyping the LeBron to Miami talk. I do have to ask the base question. I posted it on Facebook and Twitter, and I reiterate it here …. Is there a better or more complete switch [...]

Earlier this week, I saw the first reference to the LeBron James “Free Agency Summer Jam” or whatever it’s being called. Can we add a couple musical acts for this hour-long special? Maybe find someone that Elton John hasn’t played with yet, or let Ron Artest sing his “Champion” song? Seriously, it’s great PR and [...]
