For sports fans tired of hearing the endless speculation about Tim Tebow’s future and Dwight Howard’s next team, be forewarned: 2013 could be just as bad. Many of 2012’s major storylines will be laid to rest this week, with champions crowned and players settled into their new teams. But for some, like Tebow and Howard, 2012 only cracked the lid on what’s expected to be a headline-filled future. For Tebow, whose time with the Jets is mercifully reaching its conclusion, another NFL team likely awaits. For Howard, who finally found a new home outside Orlando, the Lakers may or may not be a long-term destination. But waffling players aren’t the only stories that can be expected heading into the new year. In Major League Baseball, offseason spending sprees will change the ranks of the contenders (or will they?). In the NBA, the old guard is fighting hard to keep its spot as young upstarts like the Clippers start to make their moves. In the NFL, this year’s Super Bowl picture is starting to come into focus. And in the NHL — well, can we expect an NHL next year? There’s plenty to watch for as the new year begins. See what we think will be the biggest stories the next time around.
