Enjoyed this piece on the Super Bowl MVP Car Club ... Kelly Olynyk tried Dirk Nowitzki's famous one-legged fadeaway on Nowitzki ...

Jon Jones says he is fighting at Madison Square Garden in April, but it's far from confirmed ... Maurice Jones-Drew is no Tom Brady, no matter how hard he tries ...

Kurt Sutter pulled the plug on his own show. Maybe he can start a new show about Jimmy Smits' character Nero after he left Charming in Sons of Anarchy.
