Magic Johnson says he wishes the Lakers could've won another championship before Kobe Bryant retires

Magic is tweeting about the Lakers again. The Denver Broncos defeated the Carolina Panthers in the Super Bowl on Sunday, meaning that Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning will (likely) retire on top of the league after a a long and memorable career. Manning played 18 years in the NFL, dominating for the majority of them, but during his final season he looked mortal, drawing inevitable comparisons to retiring Los Angeles Lakers wing Kobe Bryant, who is in the midst of the worst season of his career and has already announced that the 2015-16 season will be his final one in uniform.

Boston Celtics cruise to 128-119 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Super Bowl Sunday

The Celtics scored 46 points in the first quarter against a hapless Kings defense on their way to a season-high 128 points and an easy victory. The Celtics defeated the Kings 128-119 on Sunday on a day where defense was non-existent for both teams. The Celtics got off to a sizzling start against the worst defense in the NBA, and continued to pour it on the rest of the way. The Kings made a run in the fourth quarter, but Avery Bradley and Isaiah Thomas ended any ideas the Kings may have had about a comeback with clutch buckets down the stretch. The first quarter was insane, with a combined...
