No Respect: NBA All Star Snubs and Other Stories

With today being the day that All-Star starters are announced, I couldn’t think of a better time to announce my first annual All-Snub team. “What’s the All-Snub team,” you ask? Seeing as how I just made that term up about 38 seconds ago, I’ll tell you. Since today is the day they announce the starting fives of each team for the All-Star Game, which is being held at the star-studded Staples Center in Los Angeles this year, I feel like I should give it up for the guys who never get any respect.

Site5 and FanSided Holiday Season Charity Drive

NBA fans, we’re gonna take a break from the hoops action for a few minutes to talk about a really great effort put together by our network. Site5 (the network’s hosting company) and FanSided are co-sponsoring the Boys and Girls Club of America this holiday season, and we want to spread the word so that those who would like to donate can have the opportunity to do so.

The goal is to raise $5,000 (but let’s push pass that goal) for the Boys and Girls Club of America, which will certainly go to a great cause and will help boys and girls around the nation improve their lives.

Here’s the club’s mission statement:

To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.

Core Beliefs

A Boys & Girls Club Provides:

A safe place to learn and grow…

Ongoing relationships with caring, adult professionals…

Life-enhancing programs and character development experiences…

Hope and opportunity.

This really is a fantastic cause and if you would like to be involved in this outstanding project, just click here to donate.

Again, a huge thanks to Site5 for all the hard work they’ve put into this effort. And of course, thank you for helping such a great cause!
