TweetJohnny Football is out of control. He’s a runaway freight train. The fat kid winning a trip inside Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory. Miley Cyrus getting ready to twerk. Unstoppable. We didn’t learn much about Johnny Manziel last year for a number of reasons. Freshman players at Texas A&M aren’t allowed to speak to the media. […]

TweetOther than FIFA, the MLB is the world’s most archaic league. No professional sports league in North America is as slow at adapting to modern changes than Major League Baseball. It took a lifetime in and a half for Bud Selig to finally install an expanded replay system. While the importance of history in the […]

Executive of the Year http://ballhyped.com/2013/07/05/executive-of-the-year/ http://ballhyped.com/2013/07/05/executive-of-the-year/#comments Fri, 05 Jul 2013 23:16:23 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2013/07/05/executive-of-the-year/

TweetGenius. That’s the best way I can describe Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey. What else can you say for an executive who transformed a team from coming off a 3rd straight respectable but mediocre-ceiling to championship calibre season in less than 2 years? Daryl Morey could have done the safe thing. He could have stuck […]

TweetIt feels as if we have seen this movie before. An unconventional general manager is hired with the expectations of being inventive, imaginative and savvy. His tenure starts out all sunshine’s and rainbows but eventually the creative ideas fail. In lieu of his failure, he begins to stray from his original tactics. He starts to […]

TweetLebron James is the best basketball player on the planet. So what? Lebron may make the right plays in crunch time but, when it comes down to it, he will never be a hero. We are a society that crave great leaders and heroes that are so few and far between. We celebrate those that […]

TweetSometimes in life, it is a good idea to go with the flow. Be spontaneous. Live in the moment. Don’t worry about what is next and just let life come to you. Solid advice. Except, not when you’re the general manager of a professional basketball franchise. Unfortunately for the Toronto Raptors, that’s the way Bryan […]

TweetThe word ‘superstar’ is thrown around a lot these days. In game 1 of the Denver-Golden State series, Doris Burke was foolishly anointing Ty Lawson a superstar on the rise. Doris Burke was just doing what so many analysts do. Hyperbolizing the stardom of professional athletes. Those who are only well known to fans following […]

TweetJason Collins is gay. You might not know who Jason Collins is. He is a 34 year old journeyman NBA center. He is now the first openly gay athlete playing in a major American team sport. Jason Collins came out in a ground breaking article that he wrote for Sports Illustrated. This was inevitable. The […]

TweetIf Geno Smith wasn’t on national television he might have thrown a tantrum. Slipping in a very Aaron Rodgers-like fashion, Geno Smith did not handle what was in store for him in a very Aaron Rodgers-like manner though. Geno pouted, his head was slumped down as he texted and he eventually left early, too rattled […]

TweetLike the great Roman and Greek civilizations, the National Football League’s demise has officially begun. America’s 365 day a year pass time took a big blow right in the gut today. After a 31-1 vote, the NFL’s passed the ‘Helmet Rule’, which penalizes a player who makes or initiates contact with the crown of his […]

TweetLast summer, “it was say it ain’t so, Joe!” Now, it’s “say it ain’t so, Te’o!” Who are you supposed to trust anymore? Some girls have daddy issues. Some kids have abandonment issues. Sports fans are now developing trust issues that are worse than they ever have been before. Forget about performance enhancing drugs for […]

TweetBarry Bonds. It’s not about morality with Barry in the slightest bit. It’s not that guys like Barry duped fans into believing they were heroes. It’s not that these guys brought shame to America’s past time. I understand that Hall of Fame voting is partly determined by “character” but that isn’t why past steroid users […]
