Hard to argue with him at the moment.

Everyone knows one NBA win is worth 3 NHL ones. The Heat are on a 12 game winning streak, which would be the same as a 36 gamer in the NHL. Therefore, the Heat are the best team in sports.

20 game point streaks aren't that rare.

I agree with Melrose that the Hawks are the best team in sports right now. But I think the Heat have a better chance of winning the NBA Finals than the Hawks do at winning the Stanley Cup.

How can the Blackhawks/hockey compete with LeBron and the Heat doing the Harlem Shake? Get on it, Gary.

It's true. Hence why I find the NBA so boring, the competition sucks.

The only guy other than Wilbon that ever brings up Chicago positively.

I'm sure most of you have seen this within the last 2 days or so... I had a nightmare about this guy last night saying, "Ties"

ESPNs quality has dropped off the cliff. Surprised Rob Parker isnt still working there. Just waiting for Stevie to follow suit.

I haven't watched ESPN since the early 2000s. Actually I watched a few KHL games during this year's lockout, but that wasn't really regular ESPN programming. The way they treat hockey, basically as if it barely exists, pisses me off.

I have some great memories of waking up super early and watching Sportscenter before school in the 90's.

I'm not too familiar with this Sephen Smith guy, but apparently he's an idiot on a regular basis... How can you be paid to talk about sports and not know there's been a hockey team in Columbus for 15 years!?

Stephen A. Smith, who in his words will put his "credentials on the line against an-y-bod-y," argued there was more parity in the NBA than the NHL, which is totally absurd.
