    Artist Micah Coles Redesigns NBA Team Logos With Pokemon (Pics)

    The NBA is full of colorful team names and mascots, but most of them are refugees from an earlier, pre-Pokemon era. So artist Micah Coles took it upon himself to reimagine every NBA team as being represented by a Pokemon instead. I never got into Pokemon, so I won’t comment on the appropriateness or inappropriateness […]

    Joakim Noah Can’t Believe It’s Snowing in Chicago (Video)

    Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah may get paid millions of dollars to play basketball, but apparently, deep down, he and I have a lot in common. I know this because his reaction to the news that it was snowing in Chicago last night—in the middle of f@$#ing April—was pretty much the same as my reaction […]
