Brandon Stokley knows it's good to be Peyton Manning's friend

When Brandon Stokley canceled his 10-year anniversary trip with his wife to spend a week in February with Peyton Manning, neither the wide receiver nor the quarterback could have imagined what would come next.

Carl Landry quietly steadies Warriors

The mention of Warriors forward Carl Landry elicited a unique reaction from some of his teammates huddled in the locker room before a game last week.

Two sat silently and waited for David Lee to describe the hulking offseason signee, and after several seconds of pondering, the usually verbose Lee offered only: "He's boring."

 In the span of 48 hours, a pair of former Gonzaga Bulldogs came through Orlando, one riding the wave of a career performance, the other riding mostly the bench.

Circumstances can change in a hurry in the NBA. A couple years ago, Jeremy Pargo toiled overseas in Israel while Austin Daye was making 16 starts and seeing significant playing time with ...

The number on the locker hasn’t changed. But wide receiver Mardy Gilyard is gone, his nameplate temporarily replaced by a generic one that simply reads "Philadelphia Eagles."
