Overtime

  • There’s always a debate on how to make all-star games more interesting. The NBA (National Basketball Association) will scrap the usual Western Conference vs. Eastern Conference gig. Instead they will appoint two team captains and let them pick the teams, just like the good ‘ol playground. We’d be picked last, again.

Sideline stat

  • In the wake of tragedy, we’ve seen local Las Vegas sports entities step up to the plate. The Vegas Golden Knights and the NHL, UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship), Mike Tyson and the Oakland Raiders (soon to be the Las Vegas Raiders) have all made significant donations to the victims’ fund. Want to help? Plan a vacation to Vegas!

Coaches’ corner

  • It all comes down to this. The Minnesota Lynx and Los Angeles Sparks are tied 2-2 in the WNBA (Women’s National Basketball Association) Finals, with the winner take all game tonight. In rematch of last year’s finals, can the Sparks repeat? We’ll find out.
