NEW YORK — For tonight, the event plays Oklahoma City; in a week, it will stop by in Los Angeles; through early December, it will energize Orlando, then Miami, then New Orleans, then Charlotte, then Detroit. It certainly doesn’t feel like some understated grind from some 82-game schedule. Amid all the Golden State Warriors have added to this national culture — and it could take decades of studious cooing to parse it all — here’s one jewel: They’ve intensified the meaning of an NBA regular-season game, taken a one-out-of-82 occasion and made it, in many cases, a one-of-one   Read More ...

Badgers basketball team is tough, gritty -- Kent Miehe
I have been going to Badgers men's basketball games ever since I was in second grade. I have watched many classes and generations of Badgers teams go through season after season in the Kohl Center. Over the years, those teams I grew up admiring have shared a reoccurring theme -- pride. Wisconsin plays gritty, tough, passionate team basketball. What made those Badgers teams from the Bo Ryan-era so special was they played with the same sense of pride shown by the hardworking, blue-collar fans of the Badger state   Read More ...
