- January 29, 2019

Spurs still hope to move into their new £1 billion (US$1.32 billion) stadium this term but clearly do not want to be playing there next season without a place among Europe's elite to entice the fans to fill the 62,000 seater venue. "That only builds your ego", added the 46-year-old Argentine, who has yet to win a trophy with Spurs or indeed in his managerial career. That is going to help the club to achieve the last step.

The Vols have won 14 straight, their longest streak since opening the 1922-23 season with 14 wins in a row. When Lawson wasn't crafting his way to baskets, though, KU's offense rarely dissected UK's defense. Kansas could tumble out of the top 10 with its recent trouble. Travis got off to a nice start, and his teammates picked up their play in the second half. (more...)

Antonio Brown has reportedly not closed door on returning to Steelers Antonio Brown has reportedly not closed door on returning to Steelers
- January 29, 2019

Brown led the National Football League in touchdown catches in 2018 with 15. The Steelers finished second in the AFC North last season at 9-6-1. Like Brown, Owens was highly productive on the field, but he attracted plenty of controversy during his career. (more...)

Redskins believe Alex Smith will miss all of 2019 Redskins believe Alex Smith will miss all of 2019
- January 29, 2019

The Redskins have struggled for success on the field since Smith's injury. The gruesome injury ended Smith's season immediately, and caused many to question whether he'd be able to resume his career at all. They signed Smith to a four-year, $94 million extension with $71 million guaranteed last offseason, so replacing him without suffering negative consequences elsewhere on their roster undoubtedly will be hard.

Toronto Maple Leafs Acquire Jake Muzzin From The LA Kings
- January 29, 2019

Also, don't underestimate the playoff experience Muzzin brings as he won the Stanley Cup with LA in 2014. But this wasn't a cheap acquisition. "This is the best I've seen [Muzzin] ever play", Brown said. The coach, who obviously really liked Muzzin, continued. He's 20 years old and travelled to the 2017 draft in Chicago, but never heard his name called. (more...)

First, with respect to Davis, the formal trade request is something that was seen as a foregone conclusion for quite some time. There is also the chance they could hang on to Davis until the summer.
