Jeremy Lin has had a tough-luck kinda season thus far but hopes to change that after all-star break when he is slated to play against the Denver Nuggets on February 24th.

Jimmy Garoppolo, the gunslinger

Brant Tedeschi Feb 15th 6:40 PM EST.

Jimmy Garoppolo is on the trading block, and apparently Julian Edelman thinks he's a stud. Sure, Garoppolo did play well when called upon, but Julian is pushing the limits and is surely trying to hype up the potential trade bait.

Earlier in the playoffs, it was announced that the Patriots would entertain trades for Garoppolo. Now, Edelman is doing his best to help the Patriots get all they can for him. So far the Browns and Texans have been rumored to be interested.

The NFL has a strict policy that all significant injuries must be mentioned on an injury report. Well, the Seattle Seahawks violated that policy and have received a warning for not listing Richard Sherman on the injury report.

Tom Brady proves he is the best ever

Brant Tedeschi Feb 6th 2:08 PM EST.

The New England Patriots had an epic comeback win in Super Bowl LI. They came back from a deficit of 28-3 and Tom Brady's legacy has been cemented as the greatest quarterback to ever play the game.

At one point in the game, the Patriots had a less than 1% chance to come back. Yet, he and the Patriots defied the odds. Brady threw for nearly 200 in the fourth quarter alone, which was reminiscent of his dominant fourth quarter performance against the vaunted Seahawks in 2014.

Last night Ferrell had his best game yet scoring 32 points on 5 assists, 2 rebounds and only 2 turnovers while shooting 65% from the field. That is a game that deserves some attention.

Brant Tedeschi Feb 3rd 4:48 PM EST.

Pau Gasol is close to returning to the San Antonio Spurs, and there is a chance it could be before All-Star Break according to the San Antonio Express-News.

“They tell me that maybe if at the beginning of All-Star break, maybe somewhere around there he can play game, or when we return he should be able to go,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. “I am guessing probably after the break he should be ready to go.”
