    When you're the third pick in the NBA Draft, there are a ton of expectations. Even with the relatively mitigated risk of the rookie wage scale, fans in the city that drafted a player are expecting some sort of return on the team's investment in the player, and on their investment in season tickets. ...

    For Once Kanye's Anger Was Totally Justified

    I like that Kanye West fellow. He may be the most fatheaded, arrogant jerk of all time in most of his interviews, but every once in a while he puts out a great album and makes us forget all the stupid things he said to Jimmy Kimmel or Zane Lowe. He also has a habit of getting into fights -- verbal ... More >>
