  • The Internet Really Wants LeBron James To Be An NFL Quarterback

    LeBron James has a lot of untapped football potential. While at St. Vincent-St. Mary High School in Akron, Ohio he was the starting varsity quarterback as a 14 year-old freshman year and an all-state wide receiver his sophomore and junior year. So what would have happened if LeBron didn’t quit football his senior year to focus on basketball? This has become an obsession on the internet ever since former NFL star Joe Theismann said the 6-foot-8, 250-pound elite athlete could be a star quarterback. “I would love to work him out and also serve as his agent,” Theismann told FOX Sports Florida last Saturday. “I’ll go wherever he wants this summer. He could play another four years in the NBA before seriously trying the NFL. … There are not a lot of 38- or 39-year-old basketball players, but there are 38- and 39-year-old quarterbacks, so there’s always time for him.” Most would think that LeBron and his ability to jump and get free in tight spaces with defenders all around him would be an amazing NFL receiver but according to ESPN’s Sports Science, Theismann could be on to something.

  • 7 Things You Need To Know About The NBA’s One-And-Done Rule

    This week, Andrew Wiggins, the top-recruited high schooler in the country decides to play for Kansas in the fall. Pundits are arguing that Wiggins is the best prospect coming out of high school since Lebron James. Now the clamor rises that if Wiggins were eligible for this year’s draft, he would go first over Nerlens Noel. This has some crying for repeal and others saying that one year in college isn’t enough. This is what you need to know about the One-And-Done Rule. 1. The Rule Isn’t About Being One-And-Done The rule is a minimum age requirement. Players eligible the NBA draft must be at least 19 years old and a year removed from their high school graduation. The spirit of the rule isn’t to ensure one year of college basketball. In fact, the NBA doesn’t restrict going pro out of high school. In fact, they don’t even restrict picking up an NBA paycheck. The options afforded to high school graduates include: playing overseas, playing for the NBA Development League, and of course going to college. Bucks star Brandon Jennings took the European route to the NBA, playing for Lottomatica Roma in the interim year before declaring for the draft in more »

  • 29 NJ Bars Busted For Swapping Cheap Booze for Premium-brand Liquor

    At one bar, a mixture that included rubbing alcohol and caramel coloring was sold as scotch. In another, premium liquor bottles were refilled with water — and apparently not even clean water at that. State officials provided those new details Thursday on raids they conducted a day earlier as part of a yearlong investigation dubbed Operation Swill. Twenty-nine New Jersey bars and restaurants, including 13 TGI Fridays, were accused of substituting cheap booze — or worse — for the good stuff while charging premium prices. As part of Operation Swill, investigators collected 1,000 open bottles of vodka, gin, rum, scotch, whiskey and tequila from the wells of the bars, state Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa said. “This alleged scheme is a dishonest ruse to increase profits and is a slap in the face of the consumer,” Chiesa said.

  • The 10 Greatest Moments In New York vs Boston Rivalry History

    Given their geographical proximity, it seemed to be destiny that the cities New York and Boston would become rivals. One Babe Ruth trade later, and the rivalry was in full force—initiating memorable moments that would cross generations and sporting boundaries. That rivalry has shown itself greatly in this year’s sporting postseasons—with the Knicks trumping the Celtics, and the Rangers and the Bruins currently entrenched in what promises to be a series that worsens the already lack of fondness between the two cities. But, what are the best New York against Boston showdowns of all time? This transcends sporting boundaries, and delves into what match-ups truly exacerbated the already negative feelings in this historic rivalry.
