Roy Hodgson the Right Man for England?

Today’s PGs are offensively talented and they need to be just as good defensively, because the guy they’re guarding is usually another point guard.

At the turn of the century the NBA was losing fans because it seemed like a game of superstars, rather than team play, hard work, and winning. I’ve heard more than enough people say that NCAA ball was better.           (more…)
