As any loyal reader of Kane Sports knows, I have had my ups and downs with this site. I have tried different types of posts, different scopes of coverage, different topics, different lay-outs, and so on.
I like the transparency of this whole process, and I hope there will be a pay-off for you, my wonderful readers and supporters, when Kane Sports becomes as great as I think it can become.
I have felt frustrated at times, and sometimes it just feels like a massive writer’s block as to the type of content this site should have.
In the spirit of continuing to improve what I am doing and establishing some much-needed consistency, I am going to put Kane Sports on a break. I do not know how long, but I 100% guarantee it will be back up and running by May 1st, 2013 (less than three weeks).
Thank you all so much for your patience and support. In the meantime, please do continue to spread the word about Kane Sports, as well as my work as editor of Rox Pile, a site dedicated to my beloved Colorado Rockies (part of the Fansided network and part of an exciting partnership with SportsIllustrated.com). And if you have stumbled upon this service message as a first time visitor, please take a moment to look around!

I know JaVale McGee has had plenty of ugly moments in his career. I believe that people too readily confuse a guy who did a lot of stupid things with a guy who doesn’t always play hard or a guy who has a bad attitude.
I don’t know a lot about JaVale’s tenure in Washington other than his stupid moments on the floor and his inclination to make bizarre YouTube videos. But I know since he joined the Nuggets he has played hard and that his stupid mistakes are not for lack of effort. In fact, sometimes I think it’s because he’s trying too hard.
And then he does stuff like this:
For far too long I was a J.R. Smith apologist; that was a mistake. I feel much better about defending JaVale McGee, because I think he is a guy who’s trying to get it right.
This is not a trick question: in what conference does the University of Kansas, a #1 seed in the upcoming men’s tournament, play basketball? The Big 12, or the conference formerly known as the Big 12 or whatever it is these days.
It’s 2013 and Dennis Rodman somehow squeaked back into the news. Not only that, he made “viral news,” although that part is not surprising considering that Dennis Rodman was “going viral” before we even had Twitter and Facebook.
