The Huffington Post - over 3 years
Performer Keyshia Cole's husband, NBA player Daniel "Boobie" Gibson, has spoken up about his arrest this week, telling the media that he got into trouble only because he was defending his wife from a "disrespectful" man.

The 27-year-old is accused of "breaking another man's jaw with a punch during an argument at a nightclub" in New Orleans, The Associated Press reports.

Johnny Nevin: Dance Crash, Deahr and the Art of Connection
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Opposites attract, and not just in the ways that you've probably heard about. Beyond the stereotypes of romance and the science of electromagnetism, there's a thread that runs through some of the most innovative kinds of creativity and reflects much the same idea. One of the things that often characterizes creative minds is the ability to see, and weave together, ideas that everybody else would see as unconnected, incompatible, or even contradictory. Sometimes this is deliberate, like the way that a master chef may combine unexpected ingredients in some new way, but more often it's the result of an artist's inability to see things divided into categories the way others do, because the way they see is so much more inclusive. That's the way that Jessica Deahr sees the art of concert dance, and because she's just been named the new artistic director of Chicago Dance Crash, there are likely to be even more imaginative things coming out of that very creative Dance Company.

Game thread: Hawks shake it up with bigger lineup (updated)
ajc - about 4 years
Vivlamore reporting from Cleveland. The Hawks will start a bigger lineup tonight versus the Cavaliers – in part because of matchups and in part to shake up a struggling team that has lost three straight and four of five games. The Hawks will start Jeff Teague, Kyle Korver, Josh Smith, Al Horford and Zaza Pachulia. “We want to shake it up a little bit and see if it will jump start us,” coach Larry Drew said. Drew said the biggest reason was the matchup at shooting guard. The Cavaliers are starting 6-foot-6, 222-pound C.J. Miles at the 2-guard and he is too big for one of the smaller Hawks guards like Lou Williams or Devin Harris. (UPDATE: C.J. Miles (back strain) and Daniel Gibson (concussion) are out.) * Harris has been medically cleared to play and you can expect to see him get limited minutes after he has missed the past 11 game with a sore left foot. * Anthony Morrow will miss his seventh straight game. He missed five games with a right hip strain and now two games wit ...

Summer Fun: James Harden To The Bulls And Other Ideas About Future Roster Construction
SB Nation Chicago - over 4 years
As the NBA Finals get underway, SB Nation Chicago editor Ricky O'Donnell is stuck pondering the future of the Chicago Bulls' roster. Late last week, a bizarre bit of news emerged from the NBA predraft camp: the Chicago Bulls had a meeting with North Carolina small forward Harrison Barnes. Given that Chicago holds the No. 29 overall selection in the 2012 draft and Barnes is a consensus top 10, probable top-five, pick, the meeting raised a few eyebrows. What could the Bulls, patently conservative in the way they go about roster construction, possibly be thinking by meeting with a player who will clearly be long gone by the time it's their turn to pick? Here's one far-fetched idea I don't feel even a little guilty about running with during these notoriously slow summer sports months: maybe the Bulls want make a run at Oklahoma City Thunder shooting guard James Harden with a max contract offer after the 2012-2013 season. Would be cool, right? Here is how this (kind of) wo ...

Highly rated recruiting classes guarantee nothing

For the 70 recruiting classes rated #1-5 in the 14 years since 1998 (RSCI consensus rankings), here is a breakdown of the tournament performances in their first year in college: Didn’t make tournament: 30% Lost in first round: 19% Won one game: 20% Won one tournament game or fewer: 69% Sweet Sixteen: 10% Elite Eight: 7% Final Four (lost in semis): 7% Final Four (lost in final): 4% National Champion: 3% Of the 10 that made the Final Four, seven had more than one top-10 class in the previous three years. The two national champions were UNC (2009), who had a #1, #2 and #3 class in the previous four years and Kentucky (2012), which was the third of back-to-back-to-back #1 classes.
