NBA All-Star Weekend
Today marks the official beginning of the NBA’s All-Star break, with the league taking its annual midseason respite in Toronto this season. Sports Illustrated has everything covered for the basketball showcase, from a preview of the Dunk Contest to a power ranking of the NBA’s new twitter emojis for each of this year’s players.
Nearly a week after the Super Bowl and all eyes are still on Peyton Manning as the sporting world waits to see if one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time will retire as a champion. Andrew Brandt compares Manning’s situation to Brett Favre’s first retirement, and Kenny Ducey has compiled a list of athletes who ended their careers as champions.
