Nike brought two of the most cerebral athletes together for a couple commercial shoots on Monday. The Beaverton, Oregon based shoe and apparel conglomerate paired five-time NBA champion Kobe Bryant and recent Super Bowl champion Richard Sherman. The two star athletes were mutually enthusiastic about the opportunity to work in the same building. While the details of their advertisements are not public knowledge, it is rather fitting that the two would be featured together—both have had their battles with negative press (whether
As the calm after the Super Bowl subsides, the sports world officially belongs to the NBA. Well, if the Winter Olympics in Sochi aren’t your thing that is. We are just under two weeks away from the 2014 NBA All-Star game and have already seen trade talks intensify.

Only three coaches in NBA history have done what Erik Spoelstra is attempting to do in Miami. One is dead. One is approaching 100 while in assisted living in Minnesota. The third is off the grid somewhere, presumably in Montana. The Heat are trying to become only the fourth franchise in NBA history to win three consecutive titles. The Lakers were the last to turn the trick, winning three in a row from 2000-2002. They were coached by Phil Jackson, who also

Incoming commissioner Adam Silver said the NBA is “looking at everything” when it comes to making changes for the future. The first thing he needs to look at is changing the league’s playoff format. When spring arrives and there are eight first-round series, we can guarantee that four are going to be lousy unless they go seven games; and four are going to be so compelling that we’ll all feel cheated if they don’t go seven games. Of course, we are talking
