Why I Stopped Being A Fan Of Yelena Isinbayeva

I used to really like Manny Pacquiao, one of the greatest boxers of all-time, who was also recognized as the best boxer of the noughties – 00’s, by several different major organizations. However, after it turned out that the man is a huge homophob I wish him to lose in a devastating fashion his next fight, which is supposed to be his last, and then that it won’t be enough for him, and similarly to Muhammad Ali he will drag his career well beyond its natural end and continue to accumulate losses.

NBA All-Star 2016 – Part IIb

This is the second part of our summary of the changes in the all-time rankings in the All-Star game’s statistical categories (1st part). However, this is also, like, the third part of my 2016 All-Star summary, or to be more precise – the second sub-part of the second part of the summary. Er. So where does this leaves us? To quote Donald Sutherland from “Without Limits”: “Jesus, Mac, who gives a shit”.

Without Freddy Adu, let’s move on to the stats! Continue reading

NBA All-Star 2016 – Part IIa

Damn , they already started to play some games in the NBA. I apologize, I planned to do this earlier but for the past 3 days I was attending this cognitive sciences conference and on each day I got home late and also really tired (I would say that I was tired as fuck, but I don’t want any swearing in this post). Anyway, let’s review the various statistical categories of the All-Star game and see what changes they underwent, and who among the active players has a chance of influencing them in the future.

NBA All-Star 2016 – Part I

Another All-Star weekend behind us. It was a mix of good and bad, but not necessarily the good and the bad I was expecting. It was also Kobe‘s last All-Star weekend, which was kinda sad, but not as sad as Michael‘s last All-Star in 2003. At least this is how I felt. BTW, do you remember that back then in 2003 Kobe was the one who denied us the ultimate Hollywood ending to the game, with Michael’s game-winner-which-turned-out-to-be-not-a-game-winner because Kobe sank those free throws that forced a second overtime? What a stupid question, of course you remember. Continue reading

Elderly Scorers

We have a lot of elderly players in the league nowadays. They are all part of that golden generation that entered the NBA in the second half of the 90’s, and continued to play at a high level well beyond their 30’s. All those Kobes, Dirks, Timmies, you know. NBA.com even has a whole MVP race devoted to old players (Old School Power Rankings).

So… why not devote a post to old players! Well, not just any post. A post dedicated to the best scorers in NBA history after the age of 30. Continue reading
