Huffington Post - over 1 year
NBA players everywhere are reacting to news that former NBA star Lamar Odom is "fighting for his life" after being hospitalized. Odom was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel on Tuesday afternoon and remains in a coma, according to multiple reports. Former Los Angeles Lakers teammate Kobe Bryant reportedly left Tuesday night's Lakers preseason game early to visit Odom, who's currently being cared for at a Las Vegas hospital.

Xaque Gruber: The Many Faces of Harry Lennix
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Harry Lennix is an actor's actor, and 2013 is proving to be a banner year with a string of starring roles including NBC's highly anticipated new series The Blacklist alongside James Spader. This summer alone, Lennix has appeared as General Swanwick in the blockbuster, Man Of Steel, as well as in the soon-to-be-released suspenseful found footage feature, Evidence, and on September 6th, Mr. Sophistication, a film he executive produces/stars as fictitious comedy legend, Ron Waters -- in a tour de force performance that's sexy, subtle and commanding. Danny Green, director of Mr. Sophistication calls Lennix, "one of the most consummate artists we have in America today. He becomes the characters he's playing." And what a pantheon of characters it is. I've been a huge fan of Lennix ever since his robust, should've-been-Oscar nominated performance as Aaron The Moor in Titus, Julie Taymor's edgy 1999 big screen adaptation of Titus Andronicus, one of Shakespeare's most cont ...

Daniel Pena: The Silver (and Black) Lining: What This Series Taught Us About the San Antonio Spurs
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
The mood inside the Dog & Duck Pub here in Austin, Texas, is somber to say the least. The topic of conversation, even among the half-way followers, verges on the existential: Game 6 and the 20 seconds to an almost-championship, Game 7 and Timmy's bunny hop that almost went in to tie the game in the final seconds, Kawhi Leonard's missed free-throw that almost dropped and could have ended the series once and for all. Almost is the word that haunts today and more than likely, the entirety of next season for the Spurs and their fans. But almost is something to consider too, especially for a team many considered, as recent as this year, to be beyond their prime. Only five Game 7s have been forced in the last quarter century. Most of them have been grueling to watch, this one being no exception. But in this series there are some things we learned about the Spurs and a few things to look forward to. Here's the silver (and black) lining: 1. The Spurs Can Go the Distance W ...

Jordan Schultz: Heat Win Game 6, But Dwyane Wade's Struggles Continue To Mount
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
The Miami Heat's herculean win in Game 6 of the NBA Finals masked yet another poor performance by Dwyane Wade, who remains severely ineffective thanks to his right knee. Naturally, we are focusing on Ray Allen's season-saving 3-pointer and Miami's shocking 103-100 OT win -- an instant classic and one of the best NBA games in history -- but let me remind you that this series is not over. Wade, after all, is LeBron James' sidekick and arguably the most important member of this team. With the exception of his 32 points in Game 4 -- the first time he reached the 30-point barrier since March 4 -- Wade has found himself mired in a struggle to get to the foul line and score with the same ease and veracity we have become accustomed to seeing. Perhaps Erik Spoelstra started Allen over him in the third quarter because of the knee, or perhaps he wanted to spark his veteran sharpshooter, but as I previously reported, the 31-year-old is averaging the fewest minutes, points, field goa ...

Jordan Schultz: Dwyane Wade Goes Retro, Provides Heat With 'Flash' Performance Of Old
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
Game 4 of the Finals marked the first time during the 2013 NBA Playoffs that Dwyane Wade wasn't dragging. He wasn't timid either. Wade, who has been dealing with an injured right knee, came out with the fire, intensity and brashness that we normally expect from the former Finals MVP, aptly nicknamed "Flash," yet haven't really seen in months. For the first time since March 4, Heat star Dwyane Wade recorded a 30-point game. (Getty Images) LeBron James is the Heat's best and most gifted player, but as I've highlighted before, his sidekick's ability to attack the defense often dictates how well LeBron will play. Miami head coach Erik Spoelstra has said that Chris Bosh is the most important player for his team, but Wade is the unquestioned warrior. Simply put, Wade -- who was nothing short of sensational in Game 4 with 32 points (his first 30-point outing since March 4) and six steals -- is a the type of guy you want to go to battle with. Meanwhile, the 31-year-old ...

Daniel Pena: The Enigmatic Kawhi Leonard
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
The old adage goes that player's names are made and solidified in the NBA Finals. Such can be seen in the media frenzy surrounding the unlikely rise of Gary Neal and Danny Green whose combined 51 points in Game 3 against the Heat led to a massive 113-77 rout. In the post-game conference, when asked about how he was so capable of containing the league's MVP, LeBron James, and holding him to just fifteen points, the notoriously dry Popovich refused to answer the question and with good reason. If it's true that names can be made in the playoffs, it is also true that names can be broken or at least tarnished. Coach Popovich hinted at as much in fielding questions on LeBron James' lackluster performance against the Spurs in Game 1. When asked to remark on James' performance in Game 3 and what he thought James could do better, Coach Popovich dryly remarked, "He's a grown man. He doesn't need you to tell him anything. He knows more than all of you put together." Thus far, the co ...

Justin Moss: NBA Finals Brings Opera Companies Head-to-Head

The closing of Game 2 in the NBA Finals created a tie between defending champions the Miami Heat and the four-time-title-winning San Antonio Spurs. With an even playing field laid out and growing expectations for both teams, it was the perfect time for two opera companies to arrange a friendly bet. Miami's Florida Grand Opera and Opera Piccola of San Antonio, each eager to show some hometown pride, settled on a wager that stipulated that the loosing company will send an emerging artist to the winning city to perform a free recital for the public. "It's all about pride, and that's the thing that makes the excitement more, and more every year - because the Spurs are one of the many things in our city that we hold close to our hearts. Just like the arts, just like the opera ..." said Mark Richter, the General and Artistic Director of Opera Picolla of San Antonio, in an interview with Texas Public Radio..

    Age 38
    On June 2012 Green held a press conference declaring he will fight on.
    More Details Hide Details Green stated in a press conference"I considered retirement after the two consecutive losses, but I have received tremendous support from my fans" Green stated he would make the return to "Light heavy weight" division to fight (Danny Santiago) and possibly challenge for a Title in the division. He stated "This will be my last Fight At home in Australia,this could be my last fight of my career, I hope not, But it depends on the outcome of this fight against Danny Santiago and how I feel in the ring".

  • 2011
    Age 37
    The fight took place in Green's backyard at the Sydney Entertainment Centre, Sydney, Australia on 20 July 2011.
    More Details Hide Details Tarver defeated Green by TKO at the completion of the ninth round. Green's brother Brendan and trainer Angelo Hyder entered the ring to call off the fight as the bell rung, following sustained attack from Tarver late in the round, leaving Green dazed and unable to defend himself. Tarver had already put Green down in the second round and generally dominated the fight. Green struggled to combat the southpaw's style and power. Tarver suggested he was prepared to offer a rematch. It was the first occasion Green had ever been stopped in his 35 fight career. It must be noted that Tarver failed a Drug test and tested positive to steroids and was stripped of his Ibo belt after his first Ibo cruiser weight title defense after Winning from Green.

  • 2010
    Age 36
    Danny Green in November 2010 defended his IBO Cruiserweight title against B.J Flores.
    More Details Hide Details Danny Green next challenged semi retired actor/commentator and former light heavyweight world champion 42 year old Antonio Tarver for Green's IBO Crusierweight strap. Both fighters came off clear unanimous decision victories, with Tarver beating lowly ranked Nagy Aguilera 16-4-0 and Green defeating NABO and USBA Cruiser champ BJ Flores 24-0-1.
    On 21 July 2010 Green took on Paul Briggs putting the IBO cruiserweight title on the line.
    More Details Hide Details The bout had to be moved from NSW to Perth as Briggs was not cleared to fight in NSW due to well known neurological damage that he had sustained. Before the bout Green labelled Briggs "unprofessional" after the he weighed in nearly 4 kg over the agreed-upon weight (though Briggs still weighed substantially less than the 90 kg cruiserweight limit. Although cruiser weight champion Danny Green to this point had never fought within 4 kg of his new class). The ensuing fight was seen as a "farce", with Briggs collapsing after 29 seconds following an innocuous left jab by Green, his first in the fight, which appears to have at most brushed the top of Briggs' head. Briggs was subsequently booed out of the stadium by irate fans, and had to be protected by management from projected missiles being thrown at him. In a post-bout interview Green labelled Briggs "less than canine" and claimed Briggs would not be getting paid for the fight, while also apologising to fans who had paid to attend. Speculation has arisen as to whether Briggs threw the fight, as online bookmaker Centrebet labelled the bout "highly, highly dubious" following a massive betting plunge shortly before the fight. Centrebet spokesman Neil Evans stated "We've never ever in the history of boxing seen so much money go on a specific decision outcome, as in a first- or second-round knockout. There was a massive go on first or second-round knockout starting from very early yesterday morning, right through the day, certainly up until early afternoon.
    Danny Green was sued in 2010 for refusing to abide by the contract, refusing to allow Jones a rematch.

    More Details Hide Details Green spoke to "the Telegraph" saying "Nothing will ever erase the memory of that first night," said Green, part of the crew on Loyal, which is racing to help raise money for charity."I nearly fell off and I thought, 'I'm going to die'. Give me a fight any day." But he said he was only back on land a few days before he felt the lure of the ocean again. "A couple of days after I realized it was such good fun," he said. "The camaraderie from team members, the blokes on the boat, made it too enticing to not do it again."I learned sailing, particularly the Sydney to Hobart is a tough gig. It is up and down, its rough and it's tough. "I've always had respect for sailors because I've always been afraid of it, to be stuck on an ocean. The work they do, it's hard"

When he finally came round and had caught his breath he said, 'This a story to tell the boys at the next party, getting rescued by Danny Green.'"

    More Details Hide Details From the start of the fight Green was unable to connect due to Mundine's movement and speed.

    Age 24
    Born in Perth, Western Australia, he had success at the State Amateur level led to him being selected for an Australian Institute of Sport scholarship to prepare for 1998 Commonwealth Games and the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney.
    More Details Hide Details Green qualified for the Olympic team, stopping Brazilian Laudelino Barros in the fourth and final round of his first bout. However, Green was technically knocked out in the later rounds of his bout against Russian Alexander Lebziak due to Lebziak holding a points advantage that was seen to be too great for Green to overcome - a regulatory circumstance typically viewed in Olympic boxing as an indication that one fighter is outclassed by the other - boxing fights within Olympic contests (unlike professional boxing) are often stopped if and when a fighter is deemed to be so significantly behind on points that the likelihood of him recovering the disadvantage and being successful is seen to be marginal. In these circumstances that are defined by a set threshold margin between the points each boxer attains throughout the bout, due to health and safety concerns the fight is stopped if one boxer has a points lead that is equal to or greater than the set threshold. After the bout was stopped for these purposes and because Alexander Lebziak attained such a points lead, Green claimed his hand was broken and spoke of the fight in terms that attributed the loss to his broken hand. However, right from the start of the contest and throughout the entire bout Lebziak was noticeably dominant and Green sustained what many believed to be facial injuries from Lebziak's punches. Lebziak was an excellent Russian boxer and he then went on to claim the Olympic Gold Medal.
