Most overrated and underrated NFL players

The over/under 64

Browns LB D'Qwell Jackson gets a shout-out; Jags DT John Henderson gets a big call-out. For better and worse, Pete Prisco goes from team to team nailing the most overrated and underrated player for each. Column

Final step

The numbers keep piling up for Roger Federer. The heavy favorite makes a record seventh consecutive Wimbledon final to move one win away from his unprecedented 15th major title. Story

Passing the (Ar)test

Whoa. Kobe Bryant and Ron Artest are actually going to be teammates. Ken Berger, who breaks the story, says Artest had longed for L.A., and he gets his chance when Trevor Ariza bolts for Houston. | Berger: Buzz

Berger: Hedo update | Iverson | Yao waiting | Movement | Artest! | Ariza!

Bryant looks to rebound and the Pens stay focused

Scaling the wall

In Game 3 of the Finals, Kobe Bryant shot bricks from the line. And where there's bricks, there's a wall -- one the Lakers star will try to run through, no matter how tired he is, Ken Berger says. | Doyel: Sporadic Odom

Marc of excellence

Cold. Lonely. That is a Penguin's march; just ask netminder Marc-Andre Fleury. But survival could mean a Stanley Cup at the end of the journey, Wes Goldstein says before an all-or-nothing Game 7 in Detroit. Column

Tex miss

The Red Sox wanted Mark Teixeira badly this past offseason. Instead, he chose the Yankees. Even with a sterling 7-0 start against its hated rivals, Boston still must dream of what could have been, Danny Knobler says.

Bryant leads Lakers and Johnson gets 300th win

Opening statement

Kobe Bryant makes sure the Magic hear him loud and clear, scoring 40 as the Lakers win 100-75 in the Finals opener. Orlando should be afraid -- Kobe has that look, Mike Freeman says. | Berger: Strange change

Freeman: Shaq | Berger: Stern | Series | Notes | Talk!

Mr. 300

Make room in the 300-win club. Giant Randy Johnson is the 24th member with a six-inning, two-hit effort in a 5-1 victory in D.C. Whenever Johnson pitches, you know something special can happen, Danny Knobler says.

Momentum switch

We're back where we started. Pittsburgh tops Detroit 4-2 in Game 4 to tie the Finals at 2. Wes Goldstein says the Penguins might look back at hard-working Jordan Staal's night as the turning point in the series.

Stanley Cup rematch and the Lakers go up 3-2

(Re)match maker

The dream rematch for the Stanley Cup is on. The Red Wings will defend their title against the Penguins after dispatching the Blackhawks in five games with a 2-1 OT win. The Finals are set to start Saturday. Full story

Goldstein: Proud 'Hawks | Games 1-2 on Sat.-Sun. | B/R

With a little help

With Denver keying in on Kobe, Bryant's teammates rise to the challenge and help L.A. win 103-94 in Game 5. The Lakers sure look much deeper than the Cavaliers, and Ken Berger wonders if LeBron James is jealous.

Series | Berger: Win was 'paid' for?!? | Phil fined | Hey!

Building somethin' special

When Chris Carpenter was down, the Cardinals were out. But with their fiery ace and pitching savant Dave Duncan stoking their staff, St. Louis again looks bound to play in October, Danny Knobler says. Full story

Bryant lifts Lakers and the Red Wings take charge

West point

A fourth ring. Carmelo Anthony. What more motivation does Kobe need? Bryant scores 40 points to help L.A. edge Denver 105-103 in Game 1 -- a day after Jerry West says LeBron James is No. 1, Ken Berger notes.

Series: LAL 1, DEN 0 | Nuggets-WWE | East | Picks | Yo!

Picture is Cleary

Mikael Samuelsson Nets the winner in OT and Dan Cleary scores again as Detroit tops Chicago 3-2 in Game 2. The Wings take charge of the series, but Wes Goldstein says the 'Hawks still believe in themselves.

Series: DET 2, CHI 0 | Goldstein: Cleary | B/R | Talk!

Another brick in the Wall

John Calipari proves his recruiting expertise by landing John Wall, the nation's top point guard. Rest of the nation beware: This is only the start to the success bound for Kentucky, Gary Parrish says. | Wall to UK

Parrish: Scholly numbers | Doyel: Called it in March | Wall | B/R | Yo!
