The biggest storylines of the past week include the surging New Orleans Hornets, the still-on-pace-for-70-wins Spurs, the vulnerable Heat dropping a handful of games, the Knicks falling back to Earth, Blake Griffin bringing the Clippers back to respectability and the pathetic Cavaliers losers of 28 of their last 29.

One of the great things about college basketball is with so many teams there is bound to be someone that comes up and outperforms expectations every year. Maybe it’s a powerhouse that was down on its luck last year. Maybe it’s a team that was too green to finish the big games. Maybe it’s a team that needed one or two more pieces before they can be called a respectable contender. Check out our sleeper picks for the March Madness Tournament after the jump (shot)!
We hope you spent New Year’s Eve partying like Snooki. We’re nearly midway through the season and have seen a lot of action lately as...
Kiplinger's just released its ranking of the best value schools broken down into two major categories: public and private. Their rankings are based on a combination of academics (SAT or ACT scores, admission and retention rates, graduation rates) and affordability (total expenses for in-state vs. out-of-state students, average debt per student at graduation). While that's all well and good for penny pinchers, what about us booty chasers? We decided to take a look at which of the top "best value" public and private colleges hooks up the most.

Round One of The LeBron Hate Parade 2010 is in the books as he and his buddies shattered the Cavs in a demoralizing 118-90 victory that was nowhere near as close as the score indicates. The Heat are finally clicking and have won five straight heading into a west coast trip with stops in Utah, Golden State, and Sacramento. The smart money would suggest that the wins will keep piling up. See more reaction and analysis after the jump!
Shaquille O'Neal is a legend and will forever be a part of not just NBA history but sports lore. He donned the Superman 'S' way before Dwight Howard and he spits out memorable quote after memorable quote in the locker room, at press conferences, and on Twitter. The big man's in the twilight of his career, but still manages to be productive for the Celtics when he doesn't forget his meds. He's gone head to head with the likes of Ewing, Olajuwon, Robinson, but can you imagine playing against him in HIGH SCHOOL?! How bad do you think that dude sh*t his pants? Here are some of his highlights from high school.
As the NBA season hits December, a lot of highly anticipated storylines are beginning to play out. Simply put, nothing is bigger than LeBron's first trip back to the city that he shat on when tonight's theater of vengeance unfolds on TNT. LeBron brings his underwhelming 11-8 Miami Heat to his former kingdom where Cavs owner Dan Gilbert will finally get to see his rabid fan base pounce on the One that turned his back on his hometown.
Drew Brees was recently awarded Sportsman of the Year by Sports Illustrated. Brees not only won a Super Bowl against Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts last February, but has made significant contributions off the field as well. Of course you tend to not hear about it since our sports news off the field typically focurs on DUIs or domestic abuse, a player’s displeasure with their current team, or better yet, where they are taking their “talents.” Brees is a breath of fresh air and we 100% fully endorse SI's selection. To ensure we have MORE of him and LESS of the other jackasses, we're doling out "awards" for the Worst Sportsmen of the Year.

The Rockets, Heat, Clippers, and Knicks are not living up to the preseason hype. Meanwhile, Minnesota's Kevin Love had a 30 point 30 rebound night against the Knickerbockers while Boston's Rajon Rondo shows why he should be an all-star and quite possibly MVP of the league.
The Duke Blue Devils are the odds on favorite to repeat as NCAA champions. Coach Mike Krzyzewski finally found a formula to reach the top...

2K Studios released NBA 2K11 with Michael "Air" Jordan gracing the cover last Tuesday. In honor of His Airness' return to the (virtual) court, it's only fitting to daydream about other icons--fictional and real--I'd like to see be "like Mike" and make a return to popular culture via video games. After all, legends never die. Note: Bagger Vance not included.
