Tweet of the Day: Steph Curry Sad To See WR Steve Smith Go

Stephen Curry

As of Tuesday this week, the National Football League began its new league year and, with it, offseason free agency began. A flurry of moves have already happened and the free agent frenzy is only beginning. An unfortunate side effect of free agency is seeing beloved players get cut—especially when it is unexpected and seemingly unwarranted.

Over 2,000 entries fought it out for a top prize of $10,000 in the Wednesday 50K yesterday. “Marblesnap” finished with 270.0 DraftStreet points to triumph, only a half point better than “scoobylov3r”.

Rookie Rankings, Week 19: The Philly Factor

Philadelphia 76ers Sixers

First, the good news. Among rookies, the top four scorers behind Philadelphia’s Michael Carter-Williams all got a recent chance to pad their stats against the sickening 76ers. Now, the bad news.

Father time gets the better of everyone from time to time. Just this afternoon, I played pickup ball at the local gym and he gave me the business; knees sore, hip sore, back sore, muscles fatigued…and I am no elite athlete. Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard Kobe Bryant, however, is. But, like myself and many other individuals in this world—All-Star athlete or not, time and injury often prevent us from doing what we love most. For me, I love art—whether drawing or writing—as
