OT: Monthly NBA Thread - February 2015

I estimate only 10-12 Primates care about the NBA, but with our own thread, we won’t detract from what this site is really about: the never-ending thrill of ranking Major League Baseball executives.

Some people will never forget DeAndre Jordan’s posterizing dunk over Brandon Knight.

For devoted Clippers fan Darrell Camara, it’ll physically stay with him forever after getting a tattoo on his hip of the dunk face Jordan made afterward.

OT: Monthly NBA Thread - November 2014

I estimate only 10-12 Primates care about the NBA, but with our own thread, we won’t detract from what this site is really about: whether communicable diseases are politicians’ fault.

Morosi: Could Cain’s story make baseball king of sports world again?

Seriously thinking of changing my handle to Lorenzo Cain’s #1 Fan. Dude is fun to root for.

McCullough wrote that Cain was cut from the freshman basketball team, and his mother wouldn’t allow him to play football.

“If I would have made the basketball team, there’s no chance I would have played baseball,” Cain told McCullough. “I know that for sure. There’s no chance.”

Cain, 28, came from football country — Madison County High School in northern Florida and Tallahassee Community College. Now he’s the talk of baseball and is poised to earn $2 million or more through salary arbitration next season.

Is this the traditional path to major-league stardom? No, but Cain’s story should remind everyone in the chain of youth sports — high school coaches, college coaches, professional organizations, Major League Baseball and (most importantly) families — that success in baseball is largely a function of athletic ability and the opportunity to play, even if a kid’s first exposure to the game is as a teenager.

Baseball needs to become more aggressive in marketing itself to our country’s best young athletes, at a time when many parents are giving serious thought to whether they want their sons associated with football’s violent culture. For a 16-year-old with equal potential in the two sports, baseball offers a far better future than football by almost any objective measure.
