Brett Favre, Ron Artest and Carmelo Anthony represent just a tiny taste of the sports topics that are burning up the headlines on this late Tuesday afternoon. Big names, to be sure. And luckily for us, big stories too.
Brett Favre just won't go away. Just when we thought that the NFL had washed its hands of Favre once and for all when Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers finished off their win in Super Bowl XLV, Favre's name popped up in the news once again.
Despite the fact Favre is no longer seen as much of a role model, 2010 Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton said recently that he considers Favre to be his mentor. Is this good or bad? We shall discuss.
Meanwhile, the NBA trade deadline is fast approaching, and there are plenty of high-profile names on the market. One of the newer additions to the trade winds is Los Angeles Lakers forward Ron Artest. He reportedly wants out, and the Lakers are apparently more than happy to oblige him.
Speaking of wanting out, Carmelo Anthony could still conceivably be had for the right price. And according to the latest reports, the Lakers think they can pay it.
All this and more are ahead. It's already a busy day. But if you want to stay up to date, all you have to do is keep it here.
