NBA Playgrounds Is More NBA Jelly Than NBA JAM

By  •  Blog

I heard about NBA Playgrounds and knew I had to have it. An arcadey 2-on-2 basketball game promising big dunks and fast action harkening back to the days of NBA JAM.

Spoiler alert: some of these big dunks and fast action are delivered. But the game trips over its own shoelaces all too often. This is not an updated NBA JAM you can play with your kids.

Work-Life Balance At the Intersection of Dad & Athlete

adrian peterson smewch

It’s not a rare thing to see athletes father-up and put family ahead of their careers. But some athletes are also having very private battles in very public arenas concerning their kids. This is the intersection of dad and athlete: where work-life balance is always in the spotlight.

Recently, there have been a lot of interesting sports stories including the likes of golfer Hunter Mahan, the NBA’s Dwayne Wade, the MLB’s Joe Mauer and the NFL’s Adrian Peterson – and, of course many more than we could cover.

Spring Sports Superheroes Are Fathers Too

Spring Sports Superheroes

Right after the Los Angeles Kings won the Stanley Cup, we posted stories about a few of the fatherhood moments that the athletes had. We thought it’d be worth a look at some of the other sports that have been coming and going lately to let you know that even superhero-level athletes can be human fathers – yes, even Lebron James.

It’s only a coincidence that Father’s Day falls (every year!) at a time of year when almost every major sport in the world is in full-swing. Even for sports-uninclined dads, it’s hard not to get swept up in the frenzy while hockey’s inching toward the Stanley Cup, basketball’s heading for a final showdown, and soccer, baseball, tennis and golf are still hitting their stride. This year, we saw all sorts of fatherhood in sports, from basketball to spelling bee. It seemed like no matter what shape balls you like to watch people hold, there was a father in the story.
