Will NASCAR’s youth movement create resentment among veteran drivers?

Each week, SB Nation’s NASCAR reporter Jordan Bianchi answers your questions about the latest news and happenings within the sport. If you have a future mailbag question, email jordanmbianchi@gmail.com. If I were an older driver I’d be super pissed about the attention going to a bunch of kids

Let’s pick the best MLB over-under bet for 2018

Every year, I assume that the wisdom of crowds will help us — all of us — make money. Every year, I figure that thousands and thousands of hardcore baseball fans can mush their brains together and become a supercomputer that’s smart enough to beat the stupid casinos. Every year, I trust you. And

Tracking every completed trade before the 2018 NHL trade deadline

The 2018 NHL trade deadline is a mere week away, meaning we are headed for potential trade craziness over the next few days. The NHL will lock off trades after the Monday, Feb. 26 deadline at 3 p.m. ET, which means teams have very little time to stock …

Nikola Jokic’s free agency presents a unique conundrum for the Nuggets

The Denver Nuggets should have no question that Nikola Jokic is worth a maximum contract coming off his rookie deal. The only issue is when that contract should come. Jokic was a second-round pick in 2014, and he joined the Nuggets a year later on a co…

2018 NFL mock draft: How trades can change the draft

There are no guarantees in the NFL draft, except one. There will be trades. In 2016 and 2017, 12 picks in the first round were moved at some point. The 2018 NFL draft will be no different. We’ve already seen two first-rounders change hands. In this week’s mock draft, five trades get projected

Anthony Davis is wearing DeMarcus Cousins jersey in the All-Star game

DeMarcus Cousins can’t play in this All-Star game with a torn Achilles, but his teammate won’t let him be forgotten. Instead of wearing his normal No. 23 jersey, Anthony Davis put on Cousins’ uniform and will wear it throughout the game. Davis and Cousins have become pretty tight on and off

The problem with the NBA Dunk Contest is all the cool shit has been done

The 2018 NBA Slam Dunk Contest was filled with throwbacks. Donovan Mitchell gave us a moment to remember Dr. Dunkenstein and put on a Toronto Vince Carter jersey to do a famous Toronto Vince Carter dunk. Larry Nance Jr. wore his dad’s old uniform to do his dad’s old dunk. It’s a just reminder

Paul George was bad in the 3-point contest, but Michael Jordan was worse

Everybody is excited that Paul George is in Los Angeles for the All-Star festivities, especially in anticipation (more so hope) that he joins the Lakers this upcoming offseason in free agency. But he had a terrible three-point contest showing, with just nine points. Even Russell Westbrook’s reaction

Joel Embiid forgot to take the tag off his shorts during NBA All-Star Saturday

NBA All-Star Saturday night is underway, and the Skills Challenge is the first event on the schedule. The first highlight isn’t some fantastic finish or anything — but rather Joel Embiid’s shorts. They aren’t specially designed or anything — he just forgot to take the tag off of them: A screenshot

The 4 best moments from Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal’s conversation

Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal might have the most infamous beef in NBA history. They were one of the most dominant duos we’ve ever seen on a basketball court and we haven’t really seen anything like them since. Their run was cut short because of their feud, but they still won three consecutive

Blame the NHL for Team USA hockey getting crushed so badly by Russia

The Olympic Athletes from Russia destroyed the American men’s hockey team in Group B play at the Winter Olympics on Saturday morning. The score was 4-0, which accurately reflected how bad the Americans looked, if you were able to keep your attention fixed on the game for more than a few minutes.
