Jim Boeheim went out his way. He went out whining. → Read More

Thirty-nine years at the AJC, and I owe it all to Guy McIntyre

Assuming I make it through the weekend, Monday will mark the beginning of my 40th year at the AJC. Doubtless you’ve wondered, “How did a goofball like you get a job at a place like this?” Glad you asked. → Read More

Nate McMillan’s out. Can anyone coach these Hawks?

Between Christmas and New Year’s, word began circulating that Nate McMillan was so thrilled to be coaching these Hawks that he offered to resign. The report was denied by the Hawks and McMillan, but it left its mark. Once a team believes its coach is a lame duck, it ceases to view him as its coach. Why worry about pleasing someone who’s all but gone? → Read More

No longer a novelty, Atlanta United must prove it has staying power

It’s no longer an expansion team, though it never carried itself like an expansion team. Atlanta United knew it was a big deal before a ball had been kicked. It was owned by Arthur Blank, who co-founded Home Depot. It was run by Darren Eales, who apprenticed at Tottenham Hotspur, among the Premier League’s Big Six. It hired Tata Martino, who managed Barcelona and the Argentine national team. → Read More

Bradley’s Buzz: Monken leaves, but Smart’s UGA won’t miss a beat

A body in motion stays in motion. That’s Newton’s first law. It has become Kirby Smart’s true north. His program no longer wastes time and effort on personnel searches. The Georgia Bulldogs fill gaps before gaps exist. → Read More

Baseball is the sport changed the most by analytics, but football has felt the changes, too. → Read More

Bradley’s Buzz: The puzzling Hawks and a dunk not taken

It’s the most famous shot not taken. It happened – or, put another way, didn’t happen – with 3:30 remaining in the Eastern Conference semifinals. The date was June 20, 2021. The NBA East is still feeling aftershocks. → Read More

Why Tom Brady, Fox broadcaster, won’t be the GOAT

Tom Brady is the greatest football player of all time. Tom Brady will not – this is another in the series of bold/bonehead MB predictions – be the greatest football announcer of all time. → Read More

Bradley’s Buzz: For Tech’s Pastner, there may be no way back

Tthe Georgia Tech Athletic Association could pull off a hat trick of firings over one collegiate year. AD Todd Stansbury and football coach Geoff Collins were given the gate in September. Basketball’s Josh Pastner mightn’t make it past March. His team holds last place in a 15-team league. → Read More

Bradley’s Buzz: Stetson Bennett should have a chat with himself

"Stetson Bennett has won. He is, by definition, a winner. He has no further need for that chip on his shoulder ....." → Read More

Why Kareem Abdul-Jabbar remains a towering figure

In his penultimate NBA game against the nasty Pistons in the 1989 finals, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar scored 24 points. He was 42. → Read More

Bradley’s Buzz: Burrow’s Bengals leave Atlanta AFC-less

Asked about those 50,000 folks who’d bought tickets to watch K.C. and Buffalo at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Bengals QB said: “Better send those refunds.” → Read More

What does Adonai Mitchell’s transfer say about UGA? Nothing, really

Adonai Mitchell, widely known as “AD,” worked four playoff games as a Georgia Bulldog. He caught a touchdown pass in all four. His score in Indianapolis put Georgia ahead of Alabama to stay. His touchdown in Mercedes-Benz Stadium brought the Bulldogs even with Ohio State; seconds later, Jack Podlesny’s PAT gave them a lasting lead. Those moments will live forever in Red and Black annals. → Read More

Bradley’s Buzz: An AFC title game in the A-T-L?

We’re Atlanta. We’re big-time. We’ve had almost everything. We have not, however, had an AFC championship game. → Read More

Is the Falcons’ rebuild ready to bear fruit?

The hard part of the Falcons’ rebuild could – could, I say – be over. They found a head coach who has gotten the most from what he has. They shed big names and big salaries. They again have money to spend. → Read More

Bradley’s Buzz: I hate the NFL. So why do I watch the NFL?

The things you learn from watching CNBC. “Power Lunch” was winding down when Tyler Mathisen asked Kelly Evans, “How many of last year’s top 100 shows would you guess were NFL games?” → Read More

Bradley’s Buzz: TCU’s a great story; Georgia’s a great team

Since Nov. 8, 2020, Georgia is 32-1. Since Dec. 3, 2022, TCU is 1-1. The Horned Frogs’ loss was to Kansas State, which lost to Alabama by 25 points in the Sugar Bowl. → Read More

Bradley’s Buzz: Should Georgia fear the Horned Frogs?

Does TCU, seeded No. 3 in the field of four, have a chance against No. 1 Georgia? Sure. A good chance? No. → Read More

Ohio State could have won. Georgia did win

You can bet against the Bulldogs if you like – they were only five-point favorites by kickoff Saturday – but do not bet on them to lose outright. Because they won’t. Because they don’t. They just win, baby. They just win. → Read More

Bradley’s Buzz: For Georgia, these are the golden days

It was a once-in-a-lifetime thing. Five Decembers ago, Bulldog Nation flocked to California via planes, trains and automobiles. Georgia was in the Rose Bowl for the second time ever. Bigger still, Georgia was in the College Football Playoff, a place it hadn’t been. No one knows how many IRAs and 529s were raided for the requisite funds, but sometimes money – and its source– is no object. → Read More
