Lakers' and Magic's Tanks Race for 4th Best Lottery Odds

With 4th best lottery odds being the best the Lakers can reasonably hope for, let's take a look at their closest competitor for those crucial ping pong balls. A swish. A buzz. A thud. Jordan Clarkson's layup swished through the net, and a few agonizing seconds later Robert Covington's desperation heave came well short of its intended target, thudding against the Wells Fargo Center hardwood as the claxon alarm of the expiring game clock added headache to heartache for those rooting for the Lakers to rise towards the third best lottery odds. Monday's win dropped the Lakers 3 full games...

Tony Romo would have taken $5 million pay cut to help Cowboys keep DeMarco Murray

Well, so much for that. Tony Romo isn't happy that the Philadelphia Eagles stole DeMarco Murray away from Dallas. According to the Cowboys quarterback, he was willing to take a pay cut in order to prevent Murray from leaving in free agency. Here's what he had to say in an interview with 105.3 The Fan, via ESPN's Todd Archer: "DeMarco ended up asking me, 'Why don't you take a pay cut?' I was like, 'I will. I will take a pay cut to go do this.' I was like, 'They're going to restructure me and the whole thing,' that's the same thing in some ways just for salary-cap purposes. He was...

Giants make big not-fictional trade today on April Fools' Day

The ramifications are ramifying The Giants made a trade early this morning, April 1st, swapping several players for whom you have been rooting and developing an emotional attachment for other players who inspire either indifference or distaste in you. This is a very large, franchise-defining move, and it happened today, on the day when people on the Internet try to trick other people on the Internet into believing false rumors. Reached for comment, Giants GM Brian Sabean said, "We made this trade because we thought it would improve the team," which is a reasonable rationale for a trade and...

Spurs formula nearly set

The Spurs won their second "rematch" against their vanquished 2014 NBA Finals foes. Kawhi Leonard, Tony Parker, and Tim Duncan looked up to the task, but the team can still tweak the formula in the next two weeks. The Spurs title defense has been ongoing for 290 days. There are 17 days and seven opponents (the Rockets twice) before the 2015 NBA Playoffs begin. The Spurs need one win to ensure they are among the 16 teams (...or the West plus the Hawks & Cavs) vying to wear the crown of NBA Champions. The Spurs last played the Heat on February 6th, their 50th game of the season and the last...

Goal Anatomy: Kreider's Winner

Fingers are a-pointin' after the Jets' most recent loss, and in particular Chris Kreider's late game winner. So what happened? The Jets fell to the New York Rangers last night, 3-2.  It was a big blow to the Jets' playoff chances, and the second straight game in which the Jets have come mere minutes away from collecting valuable points in the standings.  This time, the game winner game courtesy of Rangers' forward Chris Kreider with under four minutes left in the game. So what happened on the play?  I've seen a lot of folks criticize the way that Dustin Byfuglien played this one - and...
