The New York Knicks knew they were struggling and there was no way out of it; the front office realized there was a need for change and it came in the form of firing second year head coach Derek Fisher. And when the news broke about Fisher's exit, the issue turned to who should be replacing him. Assistant coach Kurt Rambis was promoted on an interim basis, but by looking at history, we all know that title means he's going to be replaced sooner than later.
There are a lot of names floating, including team president Phil Jackson, former Denver head coach Brian Shaw, and Golden State top assistant Luke Walton. But one name is apparently leading the race right now and what's more interesting is that he's been hoping of getting this head coaching job for a long time now.
For more than 10 years since he left the Knicks to join Jeff Van Gundy in Houston, Tom Thibodeau is keen on making a comeback. But this time, he wants the real job — the head coaching job for the Knicks, the same team he was employed from 1996 to 2004 as an assistant. more >>

Everyone's hooked up on Super Bowl 50 last Sunday, so someone who wants to make a news headline should come up with something intriguing enough to steal some attention from America's biggest sporting event. That is what exactly Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch did by announcing his retirement in pro football using nothing but an image of what appears to be hanging cleats.
While the couple of days that followed were marred in speculations and rumors, the team eventually confirmed the news that Lynch has in fact retired, prematurely ending his career in the NFL. Sounds surprising? Well, everyone seems to be feeling that way, too.
The image Lynch posted via Twitter was eventually followed by another cryptic message from his teammate, cornerback Richard Sherman, who tweeted, "Salute to my guy @MoneyLynch… It was an honor sharing the field with you." more >>

The Arizona Diamondbacks and 2015 Gold Glove winner A.J. Pollock agreed to a two-year contract to avoid arbitration. The said deal is reportedly worth $10.25 million, which was agreed upon last Monday by both parties.
The first round pick of the 2009 Major League Baseball Draft hit 20 home runs last season and produced 76 RBIs, while accumulating a batting average of .315. He also led the Diamondbacks in hits with 192. In an interview with MLB.com, he said that he's excited to be in Arizona once again and that he wants to help the team win this upcoming season. Obviously, that's the kind of thing any player will say if given the kind of figures he got from the Diamondbacks.
The duo of Pollock and Pau Goldschmidt is a good reason for D'backs fans to be utterly excited about the new season. The two are a consensus top 10 when it comes to the best versatile players in the National League. more >>
