Tony Snell is not among the most popular players in the Chicago Bulls roster today, but when he does play well, he even outshines the ball club's most celebrated player.
On Monday, the Bulls handed the Milwaukee Bucks their second loss in the last three games since the team traded leading-scorer Brandon Knight to Phoenix.
Snell was another major factor in the Bulls' sixth win in its last seven games. The 6-foot-7-inch guard led Chicago with 20 points, and shot 4-out-of-6 from behind the three-point line. Meanwhile, Euroleague MVP Nikola Mirotic added 16 points, and grabbed a career high 14 boards. more >>

The fight will finally take place – and it's scheduled on May 2 – strangely among the original dates of the Pacman-Mayweather bout that was proposed four years ago. Pacquiao said that fans will finally get what they deserve.

A Minnesota judge has ruled in favor of the NFL Players Association's lawsuit against the NFL on behalf of Adrian Peterson.
Peterson, the 29-year-old suspended Minnesota Vikings running back, made headlines last Sept. when news broke claiming that he abused his four-year-old son whom the football star struck with a stripped tree branch, resulting in severe lacerations. Although his no-contest plea left him with the ability to continue with the 2014-2015 NFL season, the league officially decided he would remain suspended without pay until April.
The NFLPA decided to file a federal lawsuit after arbitrator Harold Henderson decided not to grant him an appeal that could help him return to playing for the Minnesota Vikings this season. On Thursday, U.S. District Judge David Doty ruled that Henderson's decision would be vacated after the NFL did not properly handle Peterson's discipline. more >>
Stephen Curry managed to make his way into the White House for a meeting with President Barack Obama, and it wasn't because of the Golden State Warrior point guard's basketball skills.
Curry, 26, and his Golden State Warriors are leading the NBA's Western conference with the second best record in the league. Although he recently won the NBA All-Star three-point shooting contest, the Christian athlete was invited to meet the president of the United States for more than his athletic abilities.
Curry was on-hand to speak at the White House in support of a Malaria initiative after spending three seasons donating insecticide-treated mosquito nets to prevent the disease for every 3-pointer he made. The nets are a part of an initiative for the United Nations Foundation's Nothing But Nets campaign. more >>
