Huffington Post - over 1 year

Craig Sager Is Finally Going To Work His First NBA Finals Game
Huffington Post - over 1 year
For the first time in his illustrious career, sideline reporter Craig Sager will be on the floor reporting from the NBA Finals. The Turner Sports veteran of 34 years will be partnering with ESPN as a sideline reporter for Thursday night's Game 6 between the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers.  Though many of us have grown accustomed to seeing Sager and his flamboyant attire all the way through the conference finals, he's never actually reported on the NBA's biggest stage. Sager expressed his interest in joining the ESPN group to Sports Illustrated in an interview published Wednesday: Would I be interested? My God, of course! But I didn’t want to step on anyone's toes, and ESPN has a cast of hundreds. I didn’t want to take away from what Doris [Burke] or anyone else on the crew did. But yeah, I wanted to be a part of it. So why wait until Game 6? According to Sports Illustrated, Sager was scheduled for eight days of chemotherapy following the concl...

The 50 Most Influential People Behind The Scenes In Sports
Business Insider - over 4 years
So much of the way we watch and enjoy sports is determined by people who have never participated in a professional athletic event in their lives. Casting a wide net, we searched the sports world for the 50 most influential people who operate behind the scenes. There are presidents, owners, managers, coaches, agents, doctors and reporters.  These are the coaches who change the way the games are played, the commentators who shape the national conversation about sports, the agents who decide which stars play where, the owners who build juggernauts from scratch, and executives who alter the trajectories of their leagues over a huge period of time. In short, these are the behind-the-scenes people who are responsible for what we watch when we watch sports. This list was compiled by Philip Johnson, Tony Manfred, Cork Gaines, and Leah Goldman. #50 Mike Murphy Senior Vice-President of the N.H.L., hockey operations Age: 62 The NHL's review system is one of the coolest processe...

WATCH: Gary Neal Ends 1st Half With Buzzer Beater
Huffington Post Sports - over 4 years
Gary Neal seemed quite intent on making Game 3 of the 2013 NBA Finals be remembered as the "Gary Neal Game." The Spurs' reserve guard topped his regular-season points-per-game average early in Game 3, draining four three-pointers in the first half on Tuesday night. His final triple of the first half came as time expired in the second quarter. LeBron James tried to score in the paint in the final seconds of the half, but had his shot partially blocked by San Antonio's Danny Green. Tim Duncan recovered the loose ball and delivered a crisp outlet pass to Tony Parker at the three-point line. Parker took one dribble and quickly found Neal running down the left side. With one second left, Neal rose up and knocked down the three-point shot to cap a 7-2 San Antonio run. At the end of the half, Neal led the Spurs in scoring with 14 points. “We have to focus on making [open shots]. Right now I’ve been reading it pretty good and making my shots," Neal told ESPN's Doris B...

LeBron James Block: Tiago Splitter Dunk Attempted Rejected In NBA Finals Game 2 (VIDEO)
The Huffington Post - over 4 years
To his credit, Tiago Splitter knew better than to attempt a finger roll. The San Antonio Spurs' center came flying through the paint and was primed to throw down a one-handed slam during the fourth quarter of Game 2 of the NBA Finals when LeBron James rose up and turned back the attempt. "Protect the rim," James told ESPN's Doris Burke when asked what he was thinking as Splitter came barreling down the lane. "Tony hit him with a great pocket pass and Splitter had a runway to the rim. I was just like, 'Hey, just make a play. You haven't done much offensively so so just try and change the game some way defensively.' And I was happy I was able to get a good block." More...

Is Miami A Basketball Town Now?
Huffington Post Sports - about 5 years
CORAL GABLES -- Here is what Dwyane Wade said on his way out the door Saturday, a step behind LeBron James, even as the cheers were still rising in the BankUnited Center for the other basketball team in town: "Who'd have thought this in a football town?" That we're the surprise center of the basketball universe? "It's cool, isn't it?" the Heat stars said after watching Miami dismantle North Carolina 87-61. "It's different." Look at this paradigm shift. We've got the Heat on one side of Miami, defending their NBA championship, spreading their brand internationally, taking on the Lakers today. We've got the Hurricanes on another side of town, rolling to 10-0 in the ACC and becoming the first team to beat Duke and North Carolina in the same season by 25 points since the ACC formed in 1953. On Saturday, the two sides of success met, too. Miami coach Jim Larranaga received a phone call earlier in the week about leaving tickets for LeBron, Wade and James Jones, a Miami ...

Odd press release sparked Fortune’s deep understanding of Pfizer’s troubles
Reynolds Center - over 5 years
  Fortune photo illustration by Dan Saelinger Reading Fortune’s article on Pfizer took me deep inside the company’s culture to find out what led its CEO to resign and kept my attention away too long from my kids and their latest tricks on the swing set. Fortune: Inside Pfizer’s palace coup For Peter Elkind, Jennifer Reingold and Doris Burke, it all started with the press release announcing the resignation, which was partly attributed to the demanding responsibilities of the job, the story says. Jennifer Reingold Jennifer points out that most resignation releases say CEOs want to spend more time with their families and are written in legalistically neutral ways. “It was weird. This guy was saying ‘the stress got to me,’” she says. “We had a sense from the beginning that this didn’t add up.” The turmoil inside Pfizer continued to become clear with each person the Fortune writers spoke with, Jennifer says. They ended each call asking for more sources and their numbers...

Larry Atkins: It's Time to Have Female Play-By-Play Announcers for NFL Games
Huffington Post - over 5 years
As the NFL season approaches, many fans will have questions about things like injuries, rookie contributions, and roster cuts. However, one question remains unanswered about the NFL and its media coverage. Why are there no female play-by-play announcers for NFL games? At this point, there are no female play-by-play announcers for NFL games. Women tend to be relegated to doing sideline reporting and to the studio. There are only a handful of female play-by-play announcers or expert commentators for any male professional or college sport. It's one of the few remaining glass ceilings to be cracked in journalism, sports and society. I can understand why a woman wouldn't make a good expert color commentator for NFL games. There has never been a female player in the NFL, and it's not likely to happen anytime soon. Maybe a few years down the road, there might be a female kicker who would be good enough to kick in the NFL. The best color commentators are those who h...

Your NBA Conference Finals announcing schedule
Awful Announcing - over 5 years
Even though the professional basketball on display this season has been as pleasing to the eye as Battlefield Earth, the NBA and NBA fans have to be fairly content with the two conference finals matchups - Thunder/Spurs in the West and Heat/Celtics in the East.  San Antonio kicked off the Conference Finals with a comeback in the 4th quarter to beat OKC while Boston-Miami starts tonight.  As has been the custom in this Turner/ESPN era of NBA basketball, TNT and ESPN have one series a piece.  This year, TNT gets the West with Marv Albert, Steve Kerr, and Reggie Miller at the mics.  ESPN gets the East with Mike Breen and Jeff Van Gundy calling the action.  I'm a little surprised ESPN didn't add Hubie Brown to the mix as well, but hey Stan Van Gundy is now available!  Can we bring Van Gundy 2 Van Gundy to the NBA Finals?  Make it happen Disney!

7 stories to read this weekend

It is going to be a beautiful weekend in San Francisco and I plan to spend most of it outdoors. And during that time, I don’t plan to bother with working. And you shouldn’t either. However, you should read these seven pieces whenever you get the urge to read something. How Hewlett-Packard lost its way, by Fortune writers James Bandler and Doris Burke, is a deep look into what is clearly a dysfunctional giant, one that epitomized Silicon Valley values. Today, it does anything but. America’s most unlikely business guru and founder of Patagonia, Yvon Chouinard, is profiled by the Wall Street Journal. I loved this story and the lessons are just tremendous. I am looking outside of the technology industry to find the meaning of business. Quality and longevity are what we should strive for. That is what I was reminded when I read the profile of zip maker, YKK in Slate magazine. Do happy cows make more milk? Who knows. But more data sure can get you more milk, as The Atlantic finds o...
