Doug & Wolf

  • Doug: Don’t get mad…yet

    I asked one baseball insider what he thought of the trade. He said it was a great deal, “if you’re an Angels fan.” I agree with him for now. I don’t care what anyone tells you. The trade of Dan Haren was a salary dump. The players Arizona received do not make the organization better […]
  • Wolf: We’re not Ghanaians, we’re Americans

    Soccer is in a tough spot in this country. We do not have a healthy respect for the sport because we have such high regard for football, basketball and baseball. It’s not that we don’t acknowledge soccer; it’s that we love the other sports. There are primarily three reasons for this: these sports belong to […]
  • Wolf: Kerr – When a profession gets personal

    Steve Kerr said his departure from the Phoenix Suns was both “professional and personal.” I’ll take him at his word and ask you to forgive my suppositions. You’ll also have to forgive my rage: but in the name of all that was good and righteous, what happened? Steve Kerr was excited about coming back, vindicated […]
  • Doug: Quick, first reactions to Kerr leaving Suns

    Doug answered a few questions and gave his first reactions to the news of Steve Kerr leaving the Phoenix Suns. Who will/should replace Steve Kerr? David Griffin doesn’t suck up enough so I don’t think it will be him. How will Steve Kerr’s tenure in Phoenix be looked at? He changed a melodrama into a […]
  • Doug: Q&A on conference expansion and re-alignment

    Q: WHAT’S NEXT? A: Nothing happens until Friday when Mizzou and Nebraska must state their intentions. The Big 12 can still be saved but Texas would have to make concessions. I don’t think that will happen because Texas in the “Super 16” is better than Texas in the Big 12 under new revenue distribution rules. […]
  • Wolf: Nash – Leadership

    Steve Nash showed a lot of leadership when he said the Suns were going to win Game 6 and force a Game 7 at Staples Center. I’m paraphrasing what he said because it really doesn’t matter what he said as much as why he said it and what it says about him as a leader. […]
  • Doug: 10 quick thoughts after being punched in the gut

    Just some quick notes while I’m sitting here at Gateway Chevrolet feeling like I got punched in the gut. 1) Box out 2) Any human being who plays as a center or power forward and has as many turnovers as rebounds is not a max contract player 3) Play until you hear the horn, then […]
  • Wolf: Of zones and men

    Competition is an aggressive act. Since the beginning, competition pitted one man against another, opposing each other, imposing their will upon the loser. Many times one man was superior to the other. Many times, physically, one of the competitors had a severe advantage over his opponent and it often cost his inferior his life. They […]
  • Doug: Frye time

    Channing is going to go off tonight. Yes, I know I’m the only one on the Frye bandwagon tonight. Yes, I know I was the main one driving straight at the bandwagon with an 18-wheeler after his performance in game 2. The difference is rhythm, flow and waking-up to the fact you’re in the Western […]
  • Doug: The truth, baby

    For those of you that don’t know, I’m in a constant state of recantation. I’m sorry that I started life as a Lakers fan. In my family, it’s either Lakers or Celtics and you had to make your choice around the time you learned to read. Dad’s a Celtics fan so I became a Lakers […]
  • Wolf: Cardinals Draft Recap

    It appears the Arizona Cardinals had another solid draft. Like Beanie Wells at #31 in last year’s draft, they got excellent value with the 26th selection in the first-round when they drafted Dan Williams, NT, from Tennessee. Then, they traded a 3rd round pick (they had two) in order to move up in the second-round […]
  • Doug: Cardinals get fantastic first round pick

    The Arizona Cardinals benefitted greatly from two things. The ignorance of others and the hard work they put towards draft preperation. It was amazing. Every time someone pretending to have a clue how to run an NFL franchise made a draft pick, another good player fell to the Arizona Cardinals. Tyson Alualu might have been […]
  • Wolf: Troubled by Tiger ad

    I am troubled by the Tiger Woods advertisement. There seems to be a serious case of exploitation going on here. The perpetrators are not only the usual suspects but Nike seems to have colluded with Tiger in denigrating the memory of his father, Earl. One would think this is not the time for Tiger to […]
  • Doug: Give me team

    Wolf and I had a great conversation today about team versus talent. Do you want the Cousins and Walls of the world that are probably one and done, just using college basketball as a minor league to the NBA? Maybe you want a hair less talented player but he’s a team guy and committed to […]
  • Doug: I am speed racer

    • Video: Doug racing at Bondurant • Photos: Doug racing at Bondurant I was very blessed as a kid to have a family that believed strongly in adventurous vacations. Whenever a place popped up on TV that my family had been to, my father would always say, “We’ve been there.” Granted he was doing it […]
