The NBA will finally return on Thursday, and with it, the myriad storylines, trends, and stakes of a season nearly five months in limbo. Along with the return of the game’s familiar rhythms will also come changes for many teams — in style, feel, appearance, and tactical alignment.

    It hardly resembled the league that abruptly adjourned its season at the onset of the pandemic 141 days ago, but the NBA made its return inside the Disney World bubble on Thursday night as members of the New Orleans Pelicans and Utah Jazz protested racism during the national anthem.  On a court emblazoned with the words 'Black Lives Matter,' players in BLM warmups, coaches, and even officials knelt and locked arms in a demonstration that technically violated a 39-year-old league rule requiring everyone to stand for the American and Canadian anthems. But as NBA commissioner Adam Silver explained during a Wednesday-morning interview with Good Morning America, things have changed in the wake of George Floyd's killing in Minneapolis police custody...

    (CNN)Fans won't be allowed in the NBA bubble to cheer their favorite teams on. It is a bubble, after all.

    (CNN)In 1987, the New York Giants won the Super Bowl and their quarterback Phil Simms uttered five immortal words: "I'm going to Disney World!"

    July 2020 was a big-money month for some of the NFL’s best defensive players. The latest superstar to be rewarded with a lucrative long-term extension was Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa.

    LeBron James and Paul Pierce had an intense rivalry when the latter was still playing. Almost for a decade, James and Pierce had some fierce encounters in the Eastern Conference.

    Jon Rahm is the No. 1 player in the world. The best player in golf? That depends on the week.

    When outfielder Austin Slater slugged a pair of doubles and drove in five runs out of the leadoff spot in the Giants’ exhibition game in Oakland on Monday, fans had high hopes 2020 would mark Slater’s breakout season.
