Shaquille O'Neal Doesn't Think We Need A Rule About 'Hack-A-Shaq'
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Shaquille O'Neal may have retired in 2011, but the 44-year-old four-time world champion remains at the forefront of the NBA discussion. O'Neal, who has become an integral part of TNT's Emmy-winning NBA broadcast, spoke with The Huffington Post recently to discuss the Dwight Howard saga, Kobe Bryant's legacy and how he thinks Stephen Curry would fare in his era. What did you think of Dwight Howard's interview the other day with the TNT crew? He seemed candid. I thought it was very honest. This life that we live in, you have to perform to a certain level, or you’ll always be susceptible to criticism. Some people can take it well and some people can’t. When you call yourself a Superman or call yourself a great player, but then you don’t play like that, then of course everyone questions your character. I thought he handled himself well; I thought he was very eloquent in his speech. I think he’s got about four or five years left to go get [a championship], so good luck. I kin...

Warriors Start Big!
Huffington Post - over 2 years
WELCOME BACK. It seemed like the Finals just ended, but here we were back four months later at Oracle watching Steph the Magnificent do it again. After a special and elaborate ring ceremony (and title banner unveiling) where Adam Silver and Warriors owners Joe Lacob and Peter Guber distributed rings to the team and staff, the Dubs went about starting their title defense by dispatching with Anthony Davis and the Pelicans fairly easily. The crowd was raucous and confident but I don't think anyone in the building expected Steph to pour in 24 points in the first quarter. Everyone knows Steph can shoot, but the part that is so fun for me is when here at home he CARRIES the game in his own palms. The atmosphere during those periods of Curry "flow" is why I love Warriors games these days. The first quarter/half seemed like one of the longest I can remember. Curry finished with 40 points, seven assists, and six rebounds. Hope this portends for a long and victorious season ahead. Chris ...

Huffington Post - over 2 years
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Former NBA All-Star Chris Webber has a new job: teacher. Wake Forest University announced Monday that Webber will teach a course in its new master of arts in sports storytelling program. Webber will be a professor of practice in the program that is part of the university's documentary film program. He will teach a class on sports, race and society. Webber was part of Michigan's "Fab Five" in the early 1990s, made five All-Star teams during his 15-year NBA career and now works as a television analyst. He formed a production company in 2012 with "Hoop Dreams" producer Peter Gilbert — who's also a professor of practice in the university's documentary film program. The program launches in Fall 2016.    Also on HuffPost:  -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Losing Is Not a Winning Strategy in the NBA
Huffington Post Sports - over 4 years
The NBA season is beginning this week and fans of each team are, of course, optimistic. At this point, everyone can hope a title is possible come next summer. Although everyone could theoretically have dreams of a title in 2014, it is clear that every NBA fan isn't actually hoping their team is successful in 2014. Some NBA fans are actually dreaming of an event that happens just after the conclusion of the NBA Finals. For fans of a few teams, the focus is already on the 2014 draft. For example, some fans of the Philadelphia 76ers seem convinced that not only are the Sixers not trying to win this year, but that this is actually the best course of action for this franchise. Proponents of "tanking" dream of such number one picks as Shaquille O'Neal or LeBron James. Each of these players were selected number one and went on to win multiple NBA titles. Of course, other number one picks -- like Yao Ming, Michael Olowokandi, Allen Iverson, Joe Smith, Glenn Robinson, Chris Webber, Larr...

Jim Boeheim Against Paying Student-Athletes: 'The Most Idiotic Suggestion Of All Time'
Huffington Post Sports - over 4 years
SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — Syracuse basketball coach Jim Boeheim isn't on board with paying college athletes. Speaking Wednesday in Syracuse at an annual Associated Press meeting of New York newspaper editors, Boeheim said he's heard the most recent talk about paying college athletes and calls it "the most idiotic suggestion of all time." Boeheim took exception with retired NBA star Chris Webber's complaint he received nothing after his team shirt was sold. In a documentary released earlier this year, Webber lamented that while a student-athlete at Michigan, his team jersey sold in a campus store for $75 without any money going to him. Boeheim noted that Webber received a free education and the exposure that allowed him to go on to a hugely lucrative professional career. "He didn't get his $30,000 or $40,000," Boeheim said. "But he got his money."

Travelzoo UK: Tips for Families Travelling This Summer
Huffington Post - over 4 years
As families across the UK get ready for a summer getaway, our Family Deals Expert Chris Webber has put together a list of top tips on how to make a holiday with little ones as stress free as possible. Be aware of the steep rise in costs once children get older • Most parents don't fully appreciate the additional cost to the family holiday once toddlers pass their second birthday and then they wish they had travelled more when their babies were younger, so make the most of the time you have! • Travelzoo estimates that the average rise in cost of a typical two-week family holiday is more than 40% from early summer (June) to peak (late July-August.) Smart families with babies and toddlers who are not yet restricted by school-holiday dates should try to travel at either end of the summer to still enjoy good weather and avoid the price hikes. Get your facts right about airline baggage allowances • Some airlines like Virgin Atlantic offer as much as 23kg of checked bagga...

Jake Fischer: The Incovenient Truth About Andre Iguodala
Huffington Post Sports - over 4 years
I was a rising fifth grader when the Philadelphia 76ers drafted a lanky 6'6" kid named Andre Iguodala out of Arizona with the 9th overall pick in the 2004 NBA Draft. Just three years prior, I experienced my earliest professional basketball memories of Allen Iverson putting up 30 shots a game during the Sixers' run to the 2001 NBA Finals. In the year since Larry Brown had left in 2003, I was still clutching the sincere joy from an Eastern Conference championship and AI stomping over Tyronn Lue, but starting to lose faith that the boys of the then-First Union Center would be able to get back to the conference finals anytime soon. But then, Iguodala's fresh face, exciting raw athleticism and stoic attitude became Iverson's sidekick. I started to fall in love with the AI who wore #4, similar to how San Antonio Spurs fans have recently developed school-girl crushes on Kawhi Leonard. Iguodala, wearing just a sweatband on his left elbow, would camp out in the corner while Iverson...

I'm still flying back from OKC, but here is the press release from the Kings on the latest honor for Jason Thompson: SACRAMENTO, CALIF., Apr. 16, 2013 - In honor of one of the NBA's all-time greats, the Sacramento Kings continue to celebrate the legacy of Oscar Robertson, both on and off the court, by awarding the 2013 Oscar Robertson Triple-Double Award to Jason Thompson.

The Huffington Post - almost 5 years
One of the most compelling story lines ahead of the national championship game between Michigan and Louisville involved a player who left Ann Arbor two decades ago. Would Chris Webber show up? Perhaps swayed by the pleas of his former teammate, Webber arrived at the Georgia Dome ahead of the game. Webber's arrival, televised by CBS before tip off, signalled that the long-awaited -- and avoided by C-Webb -- public reunion of the Fab Five was seemingly about to happen. Read More...
