Fish and whales feed on plankton, who are incapable of swimming against a current. When a player gets to free agency without a contract, he becomes in effect plankton for teams to feed on at their convenience and their cost. The Nationals have taken this bottom feeding movement to their team building philosophy, and it’s working.

The trade deadline is weeks away. Wait, no, the trade deadline is a week away. The NHL trade deadline is on March 1, 2017 this year and the Boston Bruins have been tied to some major names this season.

After another busy weekend of college hoops the Tournament Bubble ha’s begun to shrink. I comfortably cut 10 teams out of the bubble picture this week, leaving 27 teams battling over the last 10 spots in the field.

Kings general manager Vlade Divac, after hearing all the criticism about the DeMarcus Cousins trade, appeared to reveal why the team made the move on Monday. The team held a press conference on Monday to officially announce the trade, and Divac delivered a statement that talked about how “culture” is important in building a winning team, and how much “character matters.” This was clearly a reference to Cousins, who has had his issues with technical fouls and erupting during games.
Going into tonight’s game, some were worried the Jackets would already be in vacation mode with their five-day bye week starting tomorrow. But, for the most part, those watching were pleasantly surprised. The Jackets held pace with the Predators for most of the game, bested them in shots (57.76% score and venue adujsted Corsi for at even strength), clawed back from a 3-1 deficit to tie the game, and had landmark nights from two of their highly touted youth…we’ll get to that…but ultimately, it was the mistakes, the turnovers, the bad line changes that cost the Jackets.

Major League Baseball is a game of prospects. Those who play fantasy baseball are constantly looking for the next big prospect to stash on their bench late in drafts or off the waiver wire in hopes that it’ll reap huge dividends down the line.
The Celtics suffered arguably their most brutal loss of the season on Thursday night, when Jimmy Butler sank two free throws with 0.9 seconds remaining to win the game, 104-103. Marcus Smart was whistled for a questionable foul on Butler, which really didn’t look to be a foul. And how an official calls one that late to decide a game just shows how big of a role judgement plays as it relates to officiating in games.

Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich has never been afraid to speak his mind. Popovich is known for his curt in-game interviews, but he has regularly criticized President Trump and his supporters in lengthy statements to the media. Before Monday’s game against the Pacers, Popovich was asked about the perspective he gained from growing up near the African-American community of Gary, Indiana, and the Air Force Academy graduate took the opportunity to speak about President Trump again.
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was stuck between a rock and a hard place when his teammates began announcing that they wouldn’t celebrate their Super Bowl LI win with President Donald Trump at the White House. On one hand, Brady is the team’s leader on offense, and has always stood by his teammates, first and foremost. On the other hand, Brady is a friend of Trump, and he’s a pretty important person right now in this country
