Kobe Bryant’slast“victory lap” seasonturned out to be good for his ego, not for the team.

The NBA won’t admit it, but their current logo is based on a dynamic photo of Lakers All-Star Jerry West from the photo archives of Sport magazine. Considering Golden State’s Stephen Curry just became the first unanimous MVP in the history of the league while breaking his own insanely-high record of 3-pointers in a single season (with 24 games left to play), it may be time for the NBA to tinker with its design.

With all the chatter about the upcoming NFL Draft, you might not be aware that the NBA Playoffs are actually going on. When who the Eagles will draft in the 3rd round trumps playoff basketball, it confirms every suspicion you had about football being king.

Only in the NFL can a worker consistently deliver a lousy performance and get paid exorbitant salaries, as quarterbackSam Bradfordof the Philadelphia Eagles didwith his recent $36milliontwo-year extensionwith the Philadelphia Eagles.Cartoon by Rob Tornoe.
