The Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York will announce its new members Wednesday afternoon at 2 p.m.
Last summer, a full year of rumors linking the Brooklyn Nets and center Dwight Howard appeared to reach a merciful conclusion.
The New York Knicks, and their star Carmelo Anthony, have won games this season with a very simple formula.
Ronnie Brewer, though he didn't receive the plaudits or attention that Carmelo Anthony, J.R. Smith or even Jason Kidd did for hot start of the New York Knicks this season, played a surprisingly large part in it.
Earlier this season, it appeared that MarShon Brooks and Mirza Teletovic would not play significant roles for the Brooklyn Nets.
Early Friday morning, Bloomberg reported that Fred Wilpon and his partners who own the New York Mets "had obtained at least $700 million in loans."
