The Collegian’s hottest teams in the NBA

5. Philadelphia 76ers While Joel Embiid seems the shoe-in for MVP at this juncture, losing to the Nets and then the Trailblazers makes the team as a whole look much more human.

The Collegian’s NBA top five

5. Los Angeles Clippers After a disappointing last week, the Clippers had to come down a notch. A close loss to either the Celtics or the Nets? Understandable. Dropping both? Unforgivable.

Brady’s Decision Leaves NFL in an Uproar

Bad news for Brady: When Tom Brady announced his decision to leave the team that made him behind and head to Tampa Bay, the world of professional football and sports in general went into uproar. The 43-year-old seemed closer to retirement than to a fresh start, but perhaps he knew more than fans gave him […]
