It's Wednesday, and with it comes plenty of news from the wide world of sports.
Steve Nash and the Phoenix Suns lost a triple-overtime game to the Lakers last night, but even in defeat he had quite a game—19 points, 20 assists and five rebounds. The team surrounding him might be pretty mediocre, but Nash is still a star at the point.
Speaking of those Lakers, all that talk last month about their demise was greatly exaggerated. They have now won 13 of their last 14 games and are 1.5 games ahead of Dallas for the second seed in the Western Conference.
Barry Bonds and Lawrence Taylor are also making the news, but for all the wrong reasons.
In the Bonds' case, the jury selection in his perjury trial began yesterday. So for all those fans that want him strung up by his jockstrap, this is the best possible news.
In Taylor's case, he dodged a bullet and landed six years of probation, without having to serve any jail time. Still, it's another bad day in the life of the Hall of Fame linebacker, who has had his share of troubles throughout his life.
We will have updates on all these stories and many more throughout the day.
