    We didn’t expect, we merely hoped, that one way or the other Gary Carter would conquer the enemy that finally took him down Thursday. Knowing Carter, perhaps one of the better things we can think of his death at 57 is that at least he was granted that one final Valentine’s Day, to spend with the wife he loved proudly over thirty-seven years of marriage. Until a massive attack of glioblastoma multiforme that was diagnosed almost a year ago, Carter was living proof that living well is the sweetest revenge. The exuberant young man who was considered poison because he...

    Forbes ^ | 02/17/2012
    New York Knick point guard Jeremy Lin is a one-man economic recovery that even Ben Bernanke couldnt dream up in his Federal Reserve meetings. Lin-sanity has taken the country by storm and as a result created a spending frenzy thats benefiting a broad range of companies, tax rolls and even the stock market. Lins salary this season is a modest (by NBA standards) $800,000, but by some calculations, hes turned into the $170 million man. The most tangible impact has been on the market cap of Madison Square Garden (MSG), whose stock has jumped 7% to close Thursday at $31.87...

    At one time, there was no more famous nor more sought-after basketball player than Allen Iverson. Dubbed "The Answer" to a Michael Jordan-less NBA, Iverson scored numerous record-setting deals and endorsements. In NBA salary alone, he earned about $154 million, according to basketball-reference.com. Now, a judge in Georgia has ordered Iverson to pay the $860,000 he apparently owes a jeweler, The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. The problem is, he didn't have the cash to pay the jeweler, so the judge has ordered his bank accounts commandeered and his earnings garnished. Rumors about Iverson's insolvency began as far back as 2010, when...
