How WWE Champion Seth Rollins Helped The Golden State Warriors Win The NBA Finals

A couple of weeks ago, Monday Night RAW took place in Cleveland, Ohio, and WWE’s own Seth Rollins took to the ring to deliver an epic and flaming takedown of every Cleveland-based sports franchise, including giving Johnny “Football” Manziel (GIG ‘EM!) a very sophisticated insult of a name: Idiot Face. Clever Seth, REEEEAL clever….NOT!! Anyway, you can watch that clip above, as Seth also cruelly predicted that LeBron wasn’t going to bring the city an NBA Championship they’ve longed for.

Well, he certainly called it, huh? Continue reading “How WWE Champion Seth Rollins Helped The Golden State Warriors Win The NBA Finals”

New Arena for Golden State Warriors Services Community

See it? It’s Right There. In the middle…

San Francisco’s NBA franchise, the Golden State Warriors, recently made the announcement that they’ve selected Snøhetta and AECOM as the architecture team to design the new sports and entertainment complex for the Warriors. While the terms of the agreement are currently in the final stages, the new stadium, to be located along the San Francisco waterfront, will act as a main destination in hosting home games for the Bay Area’s NBA team, provide a great venue for live concerts, local cultural events and conventions, as San Francisco has had difficulty accommodating for these types of prominent events. This caters well for a city characterized by its numerous culturally rich streetscapes featuring mixed-use neighborhoods anchored around central commercial corridors to which residents and visitors alike can walk.   Continue reading “New Arena for Golden State Warriors Services Community”

You Can Play Some 1-on-1 at NBA Legend Walter “Clyde” Frazier’s Restaurant in NYC

What would you do after retiring form an epic, decorated and legendary career in the National Basketball Association?  How about getting inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1987, become a color commentator for the NBA’s New York Knicks, and then get into the restaurant business?  That’s exactly what Walt “Clyde” Frazier did, now with the opening of his restaurant, Fraizer’s Wine and Dine in New York City, designed by Morphosis Architects.  Frazier, now 67, famous in his day not only as an athlete, but as a flamboyant dresser, earned the nickname “Clyde” after the snazzy-dressed protagonist of the 1967 movie Bonnie and Clyde (a personal favorite film of mine), and the restaurant seems to really fit his style.  It even has a  foul-shooting basketball court at one end of the bar.  I was immediately sold!
