  • Pride, wardrobe on the line for Hill and Frye

    It’s no secret that the Phoenix Suns have a rift in their locker room. No, they aren’t fighting over the team’s performance or something that one of them said.

  • Who to root for in Arizona vs. Duke?

  • Burns: Dealing in hypotheticals

    I love hypothetical conversations. Who would win in a battle between Batman and Superman? Who is the bigger bad ass, Chuck Norris or Jack Bauer? What Hollywood hottie could walk through those doors right now that your wife would give you the “hall pass” for? Silly bar room conversations that have absolutely zero foundation in […]
