If I had a dollar for every time KU coach Bill Self looked shocked, dismayed, angry or upset about something his defense allowed TCU to do, I'd be able to upgrade to the Early Bird Boarding on this weekend's flight to Austin. The TCU women's basketball team is taking its longest Big 12 trip of the year with the regular season winding down. Five members of the team are listed as witnesses, but no charges have been filed.

The Broncos reportedly won't pick up Russell Okung's option

Okung, 29, had a $1 million option bonus due between the fifth day after the Super Bowl (Feb. 10) and the first day of the league year (March 9).

Sosa's words to Wasserstrom make it sound like he's made his peace with that. In their defense, Sosa's interview with Wasserstrom did go to some weird places. Read More

Sixers Trade Nerlens Noel To Mavericks

This likely means the 76ers are sticking with their big man core of Jahlil Okafor and Joel Embiid . Sure, it is good to get value for Noel before he becomes a free agent, but they didn't get much value. I have banged the drum for Noel going on three seasons now, but the writing was always on the wall for in Philadelphia. Anderson averaged just 6.5 points in 51 games for the Mavericks this season, starting two. Read More

NBA Trade Deadline 2017

After the Kings completely wrecked the trade value of superstars with their Boogie-for-pennies deal, I don't think the Bulls will be able to get back what they would need to move him, and that's probably a good thing.

The Philadelphia 76ers have reached out to the Chicago Bulls this week about the ... Read More
