Toronto, Ont.
Sports Columnist — Toronto Star

Toronto Star sports columnist, father of three, regular on The Reporters on TSN and TSN Radio. This is the cracked blinking kaleidoscope of my brain.

Sports reaction to Indiana law a victory: Arthur

thestar.com — The NCAA was never going to pull the Final Four out of Indianapolis, though that would have been fun, if only for the spectacle of watching a great fleet of ships all try to turn around at once and get hotels in, say, Syracuse.

Chase for 2022 Olympics an odd, interesting journey: Arthur

thestar.com — Since FIFA has officially charged ahead into a Qatari winter wonderland, where the mountain of lies and dead migrant workers can be buried out in the sand dunes, let's check back in on the Olympics, shall we? The International Olympic Committee must appreciate their global soccer counterparts, whose nakedly venal habits set a bar that almost any non-criminal organization could comfortably waddle over.

For Greivis Vasquez, his time in Maryland was nirvana: Arthur

thestar.com — Greivis Vasquez seems happy, and why wouldn't he be? He's 28, almost unreasonably confident, an NBA millionaire, living the dream. What could be better? "The best four years of my life were at Maryland," says Vasquez, with feeling, before a game in Chicago last week. "I was the man there.

Steve Nash calls time on transcendent NBA career: Arthur

thestar.com — Even when he was an NBA player, an All-Star, a two-time MVP - how was it possible to win two MVPs? - Steve Nash would drive around or take a cab and find an empty park, ideally with nets on the rims, and shoot, alone.

Canada’s Steve Nash calls time on transcendent NBA career: Arthur

thestar.com — Even when he was an NBA player, an All-Star, a two-time MVP - how was it possible to win two MVPs? - Steve Nash would drive around or take a cab and find an empty park, ideally with nets on the rims, and shoot, alone.

Kyle Lowry sits, Raptors get hammered by Bulls: Arthur

thestar.com — CHICAGO-Before the game began Kyle Lowry sat perched on his folding chair in the locker room, looking a little hunched and uncomfortable. He didn't talk much, but he doesn't talk much anyway. Finally, James Johnson walked past and asked him what was up: would his point guard play?

Wiggins, even on a slow night, is the one we remember:Arthur

thestar.com — Canada's Prime Minister never came to a Raptors game when Steve Nash visited Toronto every year, but he came Wednesday night. Stephen Harper's plainclothes security detail swept through the building, very serious, and he was trailed by a small herd of staff, one of whom presumably sent out the tweet of the PM with two visiting Canadian NBA players, and only misidentified one of them.

There was nobody else like Pavel Bure

news.nationalpost.com — Pavel Bure's face is lined and sagging a little now, which is a concession to age that somehow manages to surprise. Bure looked young for so long, his face almost polished, even as the rest of his body got old too soon. Now he is 41, and looks older.

Jeffrey Orridge will head up a league in search of a future: Arthur

thestar.com — Jeffrey Orridge is not walking into a burning building, which is good, because firefighting isn't his strength. He isn't arriving at the Canadian Football League with teams tipping into bankruptcy, owners commissioning wet T-shirt contests, stadiums falling apart. No, that's the past, and other than Toronto the CFL is a good place, a happy place.

More players finding NFL not worth the gamble: Arthur

thestar.com — Ed Reed sat there with tiny squiggles of grey hair across his head and through his backcountry beard, and he said, "You know what, man? I'm sitting here saying I signed up for it." He was 34, and had just mentioned he was starting to forget things.
