Kawhi will be the next great test of Toronto’s place in the NBA

NBA JERSEYS
How the best basketball players in the world answer this question governs the entire power structure of the NBA. No two players hold every team in the same regard, and the impressions of these teams fluctuate day to day. But it's not hard to identify which organizations can be found on the good list, which ones reside on the bad list and which are in between. Who can get an audience with the summer's marquee free agents? Who struggles to retain their homegrown stars? Which teams do the best players feel offer them the best chance to achieve their professional goals?nfl nike jerseys cheap china In fairness to the people who run these organizations, the playing field isn't level. They can't account for market appeal or championships won decades ago.…

If Falcons fall out of playoff hunt, should they sit Matt Ryan?

NFL JERSEYS
The last thing the Atlanta Falcons want to see over their final four games of 2018 is Matt Ryan sprawled across the ground again and again.

As Ravens’ QB transition nears, Giants’ plan still in limbo

NFL JERSEYS
The last coach who had the idea to sit franchise icon Eli Manning and spend December seeing what the other quarterbacks on his roster could do got fired less than a week later. That was last year, when Ben McAdoo and then-GM Jerry Reese made Geno Smith the starter for a week with a plan to play Davis Webb in later games, but both lost their jobs almost immediately and watched from a distance as Manning finished the season.

But with four games left and the rest of their division stubbornly refusing to…
