Opinion: There is more than one way to build a winning team

Oct 22 2014 12:00pm CDT | Source: mets blog

Brian P. Mangan: There is no one formula that teams follow to have success in MLB. Winning is about talent, chemistry, and luck. But, above all, winning simply requires scoring more runs than the other team. It sounds simplistic, but — despite being a billion-dollar industry — it is a simple game.

As Pharrell has said, “It might sound crazy what I’m about to say.” But what I’m about to say is a variation on a theme that was used by the one and only Red Auerbach. Red did it with Bill Russell in 1966. And he did again over 12 years later in 1978 with Dave Cowens. He made them player/head coaches and motivated them to keep playing at a high level. How do you make sure that your most talented and ...

Damn. ESPN The Magazine blammed its blammers in an article released today about Kobe Bryant and the Lakers franchise, placing most of the blame for the franchise’s awkward and unfamiliar position near the bottom of the Western Conference on the 16-time All-Star and five-time NBA champion.

What if you loved sports, but didn't have a specific affiliation to any team? You're moving to a new city. ...
