    Henry Abbott

    Jerry Colangelo and Mike Krzyzewski have said things about how marvelous the U.S. is, in that we do not muzzle our players nor hinder their freedom of speech. (That was in the same report where all the players parroted, almost to the word, Colangelo'...

  13. Is that Darfur Letter a Slam Dunk?

    Henry Abbott

  14. Larry Platt Profiles LeBron James

    Henry Abbott

    The editor of Philadelphia magazine, Larry Platt, is an accomplished NBA writer. (I'm constantly amazed that his book about Allen Iverson, Only the Strong Survive, isn't discussed more often. It completely changed how I see Allen Iverson.) In an unda...
