  2. The NBA race conversation

    Henry Abbott

  3. That Green NBA

    Henry Abbott

    I am glad to see the NBA coming (later than just about any corporation) to the idea that the environment matters. I'm sorry that it comes with more different uniforms. Honestly, these days, across a crowded sports bar, I don't know how any ca...

  4. Martha Burk: Don't Expect Madison Square Garden to Change

    Henry Abbott

    If you read my last post, you know that I have been wondering about Madison Square Garden. Let's assume the jury was right, and the work environment there is pretty much scandalously terrible for women. What forces might be in play to make it better?...

    So, Knick fans had gotten used to a lot of stuff. There are just some readily available lowlights from the Knicks' recent history: Owners giving the new coach an ultimatum, and everyone pissed at the old coach for trying to be the general manag...

  9. Tuesday Bullets

    Henry Abbott

    Did Boris Diaw really improve, or did Atlanta just not let him do his thing? Mike D'Antoni, trusting players, the environment to succeed, and why youth coaches shouldn't be controlling like Larry Brown. Also from B-Mac: "Sure, it's great for the...

  10. Steve Nash Post-Game Comment

    Henry Abbott

    I watched much of the Lakers-Suns game on Friday night. Kobe Bryant scored 51, and the Suns won convincingly. In the weird individual-obsessed media environment, somehow the sideline reporter (I forget her name) was more impressed with Bryant's 51 ...
