In the wake of Dwight Howard going to the Lakers, Andrew Bynum going to the Sixers, and Joe Johnson going to the Nets, the 2012-2013 Chicago Bulls lie somewhere in the desert.
This is the team that had the best record in the NBA over the past two seasons and lost their superstar Derrick Rose to a torn ACL in the first round of the playoffs last season.
This is the team that was the biggest threat to Miami in the Eastern Conference before that injury.
Yeah, that team. Remember them? It seems like a lifetime ago in which they were championship contenders. Continue reading

Andy Murray has officially established himself as the “GOAT (Greatest Of All Time)” to never win a Grand Slam. His tears and pain were felt by an entire country. The MLB enters the All-Star Break with both the Pittsburgh Pirates and Washington Nationals sitting atop their respective divisions. NBA free-agency has every team around the League on high alert. And guess what? This week is going to be jam-packed in its own right. Here are the events to keep an eye on.
5. The countdown is on. The whole world will focus their attention on one place in a mere 18 days for arguably the greatest event in sports. Get ready for the London 2012 Summer Olympics. It should be one for the ages.
4. Big Tony Stewart thoroughly enjoyed his stay in Daytona. Now it is time to head to New Hampshire. Not exactly Daytona, but still an important stop in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. Last year, Ryan Newman came out victorious at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Newman currently finds himself ranking 15th in the current standings with one win on the year. A repeat of last year could go a long way in helping Newman solidify a spot in the Chase come September. Continue reading

Spain took their place among the elite teams in soccer history this weekend after taking home a third consecutive major title. Wimbledon has had a March Madness type of feel with Venus Williams exiting in Round 1 and Rafael Nadal going down in Round 2. Brad Keselowski was the king of the Kentucky Speedway. And the “Dwight Howard Soap Opera” has opened up Season 2. Last week was a great one, but this week will be jam-packed in its own right. Here are the events to keep an eye on.
5. Kentucky Speedway got it right this year. Brad Keselowski was a happy man on Saturday night as he moved into 10th in the Sprint Cup Standings. Now the NASCAAR crew heads to Daytona to see who can take home the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series at Daytona. David Ragan came out victorious last year at this event, while the current leader of the Spring Cup Standings, Matt Kenseth, finished second.
4. Tiger Woods is back in the building. Or at least in the win column. Woods has leapfrogged Jack Nicklaus in terms of PGA Tour wins and now ranks second all time at 74. I am not going to get carried away though. He is still out in the “Woods” in my eyes and the Tiger we once knew will never return. Next stop, White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia for the Greenbrier Classic. Continue reading
