Fragile Male State Senator Not OK With College Course On Masculinity
Huffington Post - about 1 year
A Republican state senator from Wisconsin has a bone to pick with UW-Madison’s new course exploring masculinity.  Sen. Steve Nass reportedly sent an email to his colleagues condemning the “Men’s Project,” a course in which anyone identifying as male can explore their masculinity under the lens of “media & pop culture, vulnerability, sexuality, hook up culture, alcohol, relationships, and violence,” according to the Men’s Project website. But what sounds like an interesting and educational course was interpreted by Sen. Nass as a declaration of “war.” Nass’s email to his fellow lawmakers was sent with a rather dramatic subject line: “UW-Madison Declares War on Men and their Masculinity ― Not a Joke.” In the body of the email, Nass wrote that “the highly paid leaders at UW-Madison now believe that Wisconsin mothers and fathers have done a poor job of raising their boys by trying to instill in them the values and characteristics necessary in becoming a Man,” before repo...

League proud to be progressive, but more can be done
Yahoo News - about 2 years
By Frank Pingue TORONTO (Reuters) - The NBA has long been considered the most progressive of North America's four major professional sports leagues when it comes to gender equity but more work can be done, according to some owners and former players. Heading into the NBA's current season, currently on break for All-Star Weekend in Toronto, the league led the way in North America with two female assistant coaches among its 30 teams. "We can always do more but I think the NBA has always been a leader in human rights and I think we're a very inclusive league and product from a fan standpoint as well," said Steve Nash, a two-time NBA Most Valuable Player who retired last year, told Reuters.

Steve Nash Dissects Why The NBA's Rookie-Veteran Relationship Is So Crucial
Huffington Post - about 2 years
A blur of purple and orange, and seemingly everywhere at once, Steve Nash had the kind of vision and innate understanding of the game that point guards dream of. If a teammate were out in transition or waiting, hands up, in the corner, it took just a quick moment and a flick of his wrist for Nash to seemingly bend space and stop time, lacing the ball through the swarm of defenders and straight to the chest of his target, setting up the shot perfectly, per usual. If you also donned a Phoenix Suns jersey, the two-time MVP would find you before you yourself even knew you were open. That’s simply what Nash did throughout his 18-year NBA career -- he’d scan the open floor before him, then guide his teammates toward the spots in which they’d excel, maximizing their potential with just the jerk of his head or the look in his eye. So it makes sense that even today, the now retired, 41-year-old Nash is still fixated on this idea of helping teammates grow. As he sees it, a ca...

Yao, Shaq, Iverson could join Hall of Fame in 2016
Yahoo News - about 2 years
Expected changes to the Basketball Hall of Fame election process could see Shaquille O'Neal, Allen Iverson and China's Yao Ming among those inducted in 2016, according to an NBA website report on Monday. Citing unnamed sources, the report said the Basketball Hall of Fame changes will include reducing by one year the wait for eligibility for induction to the sporting shrine. The new plan would see eligibility after five calendar years rather than five NBA seasons and that would open the door early for several candidates that could be first ballot selections, notably Yao, O'Neal, Iverson as well as Jason Kidd and Steve Nash.

Kobe Bryant Retires, Possibly to Pursue Film but Needs to Rewrite Lakers Happy Ending
Huffington Post - about 2 years
Thanksgiving weekend came with a twist this year as Kobe Bryant announced his retirement, putting the capstone on a storied career. Asked to speculate what's next for Bryant, journalists Michael Wilbon and J.A. Adande both alluded to the legend's passion for storytelling, hinting at creative pursuits such as filmmaking. With the organization in shambles, now's the time for Kobe the future film mogul to reboot this Hollywood tragedy the same way he has scripted his entire career. Oddly it all makes perfect sense. Bryant's entire career was built around a narrative he himself had penned, and that he was hell-bent on fulfilling. Now as a new breed triple thread - producer, writer and director, the man with more comebacks than Rocky must pull for a management overhaul and remake the Lakeshow like it was his own Adonis Creed. In retrospect, the five parts of his career flow perfectly, but the final parts are a work in progress. Part I: Genesis. It started with overnight star...

Reinventing the Mamba
Huffington Post - over 2 years
When was the last time Kobe Bryant was still Kobe Bryant? It's a difficult and, for some, painful question to ask. As much as he tries, and dear god is he trying, Kobe isn't Kobe this year. Not even close. His points, assists, and rebounds numbers are his lowest since his second year in the league (if we discount his six-game run two years ago). He's making less than 34 percent of his total shots, and less than 24 percent of his three pointers. His effective field goal percentage (field goal percentage that adjusts for the value of three pointers) is less than Lance Stepehnson's last year, which many consider to be the worst season ever put together by someone playing 20 minutes or more a game. His shot selection feels like a parody of his worst tendencies. I understand where he's coming from, the last time Kobe played an actual portion of the season, people still thought he and the Lakers were done. It was the 2012-2013 season, and the recent acquisitions of Steve Nash, Dwight How...

How Stephen Curry Rocketed To Another Level
Huffington Post - over 2 years
In transition, a step-back three. In the corner, fading away, to tie the game, a three. Crossover, crossover, behind the back, another three. Unless you were entirely off the grid, in some place that had no access to ESPN, Twitter or GIFs for the past 12 months, it was virtually impossible to miss Golden State Warrior point guard Stephen Curry’s nightly barrage of show-stopping jump shots from downtown. Curry connected from deep at an unbelievable 44.3 percent clip in 2014-2015, a stat that comprised just part of his MVP-earning 48.7 percent overall field goal clip. His Warriors team skipped through the regular season, whipped through the Western Conference’s stacked half of the playoffs bracket and -- after a slight scare in the shape of 6-foot-4-inch Cleveland Cavalier Matthew Dellavedova -- grabbed hold of that elusive Larry O’Brien Trophy, winning the NBA title.  Curry was great. Inspiring, even. Now, if it’s possible, he has somehow raised his play to an entirely new le...
