May 27, 2016

As Italian national coach Antonio Conte was finalizing his Euro 2016 roster, he chose to omit former Juventus and national team players Sebastian Giovinco and Andrea Pirlo. What’s similar between these two players? They both decided to leave Serie A and join the MLS.

Why Did The Knicks Hire Jeff Hornacek?

May 19, 2016

This is nothing against Jeff Hornacek, I think very highly of him. Although his 101-112 record as a head coach in Phoenix doesn’t say much, Hornacek proved that he has the ability to be a successful coach in the league.
