McDaniels on course to lose job

There are the losses, the boos, the empty seats, the worst defense in football and, now, Spygate II. With every misstep he makes and every embarrassing loss he takes, Josh McDaniels moves closer to the unemployment line. In this football-crazy town, coaching the Broncos is a public trust that McDaniels has broken. He might be the most reviled man in Denver. ... On another dark Sunday for the Broncos, McDaniels looked to be a beaten man. How does McDaniels regain the trust of Bronco- maniacs? He appears to have no clue. The Broncos are a leaguewide joke.

T-Mac: LeBron, Wade 'terrible' together

Tracy McGrady sees a fundamental flaw in the combination of talents in South Beach with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. "When they're on the court together," McGrady says, "they're terrible." McGrady isn't saying LeBron and Wade are terrible as individual players but rather that the chemistry between the two isn't good. "Him and D-Wade don't complement each other," McGrady said. "They're somewhat the same type of players, 'Bron and D-Wade. If you look at Ray Allen and Paul Pierce, (Allen's a) traditional shooting guard. Ray Allen, he doesn't need the ball. And Paul Pierce is a small forward." (New York Daily News)Comment

Magic preparing for blockbuster?

The Magic still are open to making a deal for either Carmelo Anthony or Chris Paul -- they're partial to Paul -- and would part with pieces not named Dwight Howard. Even Gilbert Arenas would be in the discussion if he wasn't owed gadzillions. Maybe Monta Ellis. ... They would even be willing to take a step back this season to restock if it meant they could land either Anthony or Paul. (Orlando Sentinel)Comment
