Inside: The Week In Sports

The NBA
Mike Bibby's veteran leadership has turned the young Hawks into contenders in the East • Making himself at home in Charlotte, Boris Diaw is taking advantage of mismatches at the four spot

This is an article from the Jan. 12, 2009 issue

The NFL
Peter King's All-Pro picks signal a passing of the torch: Out with the T.O.'s and in with the Andre Johnsons • Some old faithfuls on the list include the Ravens' Ray Lewis and Ed Reed

HIGH POINT
With a league-best 27--2 record at the time, Paul Pierce led the Celtics in a pregame pump-up before their Christmas Day matchup with the Lakers in Los Angeles. It's been all letdown from there. Boston lost that day and then dropped three of its next five. At week's end, however, the defending NBA champion still had the best record (29--6) in the Eastern Conference.
