  • Dudley: Steve Nash is more valuable than Kobe Bryant

    Anyone who thinks the Phoenix Suns don’t need Steve Nash has obviously watched the last two games, and a majority of the season, with their eyes closed.

  • Green: D-backs will stink but that’s OK

    I’m often told that, when it comes to my views on sports, I’m a negative person. People say I refuse to see the glimmers of hope, that I see most situations in a “glass half empty” kind of way. From my saying the Suns had a bad offseason and would be mediocre at best in […]

  • Change coming to Arizona State Sun Devils

    Arizona State has come out with multiple YouTube videos promoting their football, basketball and baseball teams over the past couple of weeks.

  • Rooting for the Cinderella Butler Bulldogs, I guess

    I guess I’m rooting for Butler. I guess. I don’t want to paint myself as an anti-Cinderella elitist. Anti-Cinderella this time of year is like anti-presents around Christmas.
