A Lopez-specific wrinkle was added to one of the Bucks’ most trusted sets, calling for what is known as a “sleeper” action to free him at the top of the floor after an entry pass to the Milwaukee superstar Giannis … [Read more...] about Unwanted in L.A., Brook Lopez Became Milwaukee’s ‘Splash Mountain’

The Vikings’ teams under coach Mike Zimmer have a ways to go, in terms of sustained success and playoff appearances, before they match the performance of the most-celebrated Vikings teams under coaches Bud Grant and Dennis Green.
