Yesterday, I all but guaranteed the Bulls would win and they lost by 15. But we don’t care about team results in DFS. Using six Chicago players in my DraftKings lineup paid off handsomely.
Friday wasn’t my best night in daily leagues. Three games went to overtime, affecting minutes. The Bulls forgot they are a defensive team and barely outscored the winless Sixers.
Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard finally has his real life NBA2K moment. In 2K, the moment when you know your MyPlayer character has arrived (aside from that time that you single-handedly equaled your opponent’s scoring output) is definitely when you get your first signature shoe. Entering his third season in the NBA, the 2013 Rookie of the Year is finally set to debut his first signature shoe with Adidas. He took to social media to share the news with a
Golf may not be as popular as the NBA among fans, but there is no doubt it is followed closely by many of the leagues players. After all, it is a second sport to many in the offseason.

On Sunday, Rory McIlroy continued his stranglehold on the PGA, winning his second consecutive major, his third consecutive tournament, and second PGA Championship overall.

With league revenue reaching $5 billion, franchise valuations escalating and teams selling for anything from $550M to $2B, the proof is in the pudding. NBA athletes often talk about the bonds of

After doing so, he expressed feelings of gratitude towards the fans and the Blazers organization for giving him the opportunity to play for them. Apparently, though, the backup point guard had to deal with some heckling fans about his time in Portland, and he decided to address those particular folks in a quick string of tweets:

Whether the other team involved is the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Chicago Bulls or the Golden State Warriors, it almost seems to go on forever. Where will Love end up? As of now, no one knows. What we do know, as of Monday, is that the Wolves president of basketball operations and head coach Flip Saunders has added some
Transparency is a two-way street. For years, NBA media members – echoing the sentiments of its passionate fan base – wanted more transparency from Commissioner David Stern and his executive staff. Whether it was a lottery drawing, a suspension in the playoffs or a referee scandal, folks felt like they were entitled to an explanation. And they were. Stern grudgingly came around. He arranged for the media to meet with referees prior to the season about rules changes. He allowed the media
