Does Rajon Rondo make the Mavericks title contenders?

We have not even reached Christmas yet and we already have the first big splash of the NBA season. The Celtics and the Mavericks agreed on a deal that sends Rajon Rondo as well as Dwight Powell to Dallas in exchance for Brandan Wright, Jae Crowder, Jameer Nelson, a conditional first-round pick, a second-round pick in 2016 as well as a trade exception. It's a bold move for Dallas, could be it one that could provide some separation in a deep Western Conference?

2014-15 Bowl Game Predictions

It is that time of year my friends: bowl season. And for those that love all the myriad bowl contests, there are more than ever this year with 39 games including the debut of the College Football Playoff, and five brand new games in such locales as Boca Raton, Detroit, Miami, Montgomery and even Nassau. I will hold off on my Playoff picks until closer to New Year's Day but now I will pick every other bowl game from the New Orleans Bowl to GoDaddy Bowl and everything in between.

In firing Michael Malone, the Kings continue to be defined by dysfunction

For the Sacramento Kings, one can surmise that their season to this point has been a success. DeMarcus Cousins has been fantastic and the team finds themselves just on the outside looking in in the playoff hunt even with Cousins being out the last nine games and the team going 2-7 as a result. For a franchise that has been all over the place the last decade, this seems like good news, right?

Nope, hence why the team stunned the NBA by firing coach Michael Malone early this morning.
