Kobe Bryant elected to Basketball Hall of Fame in solemn moment for the sport

On Saturday morning, the Basketball Hall of Fame made a formal announcement that’s been unofficially marked on calendars since the Black Mamba retired: Kobe Bryant is a first-ballot honoree in the sport’s most hallowed ground. It is, however, an unexpectedly sobering moment in a world that has had to do both without basketball and without Bryant. The Laker legend whose 20-year career netted 18 All-Star appearances, five championships and one MVP award was a shoo-in for the Hall – one of basketba...

Who’s Never Picked #1 in the Draft

As NHL Draft Day nears, we thought it would be a good time to remind you of which teams have never picked first in the NHL Entry Draft. Written by former contributor James Tanner and originally published on Sept. 7, 2015.

The first was Gary Monahan, back in 1963, selected by the Montreal Canadiens. Monahan isn’t very famous, but he di...
