    Back when I was running Ballin’ is a Habit, Renaldo Woolridge, aka Swiperboy, was one of the site’s favorite players. The 6-foot-9 then-Tennessee forward dabbled as a rapper, putting out some pretty good songs over professionally made beats. But he briefly retired from rapping in August of 2011 to focus on hoops before he eventually…

    Sep 30, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Utah v Oregon - Pac-12 Semifinals

    Larry Krystkowiak, Utah’s head coach, is an intimidating figure. Standing 6-foot-9, Krystkowiak spent a dozen years in the NBA, earning himself a reputation for being a hard-nosed effort guy rather than an uber-talented perennial all-star. He’s not the kind of guy to back down from a confrontation. Over the weekend, “Barney Fife” did just that,…
