Are the Oakland A’s prepping for a big move?

Marquette Basketball: Week in review

The Marquette Golden Eagles had arguably their best week of the season this week, going 2-0 with wins over Arizona State and Alabama A&M, both at home.

Orlando Magic: Is Tobias Harris an All-Star?

The Orlando Magic recently put an advertisement out prompting fans to vote forward Tobias Harris into the All-Star game. At first, I laughed. Tobias Harris? I mean he’s evolved into a solid rotation player but All-Star? Surely the Magic’s marketing team had lost their minds. Then, I started to investigate. After a thorough investigation, I have changed my mind. 22 year-old Tobias...

Detroit Lions playoff scenarios

Caldwell It’s Week 16 and the Detroit Lions have a shot at locking up a playoff spot this week. But coach Jim Caldwell won’t discuss the playoffs with his players, his fellow coaches, the media or even his family members just yet.

Denver Nuggets: up and down Nuggets get huge lift from Robinson vs. Clippers

The Denver Nugget’s start to the 2014-15 season has been a lot like recently released sequels to some of our most beloved films; they aren’t good, and somehow actually fall just short of reaching our already low expectations. Like “Dumb and Dumber To” and “Anchorman 2″ before it, the Nuggets have shown glimpses of promise, but ultimately failed to reach the standards...

What a week for the Memphis Grizzlies and their dedicated fanbase.
