  • How NBA Forward Otto Porter Got Hooked On 'Call of Duty'

    Maybe it's the competition. Maybe it's the requirement for quick-twitch reflexes. Whatever the reason, this much is sure—professional athletes love Call of Duty.

  • Warriors open season as odds-on favorites

    For the second straight year, the Golden State Warriors begin the season as odds-on favorites to win the NBA championship.

That Bulls team was coming off a then-record 72-win season and was around a -125 favorite to win the championship the following year, according to oddsmakers. This year's Warriors are around -240 favorites to win their third title in four years. The Cleveland Cavaliers are next at 4-1. No other team has odds in the single digits at the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas. The Boston Celtics are 10-1, followed by the Houston Rockets, Oklahoma

Jeremy Hyman: One of the toughest parts about becoming a “good” team in the league, is that expectations will rise every year. With where the Wizards finished last season and with how they have been assembled for 2017-18, anything short of the Eastern Conference Finals would have to be disappointing for this group. With that said, while a title is every team’s ultimate goal, the next step in this team’s progression would first be a trip to the Conference Finals, and anything beyond that would at this point still have to feel like extra credit.
