Kobe Bryant doesn't think Phil Jackson and Carmelo Anthony's relationship is irreparable (even though most believe it is). "Not from what I've been through with Phil,'' Bryant said in an interview with the New York Post. "Michael had his rough times with him as well. The history is you get through rough times after you win a good amount of championships. We certainly had our rocky times, but we still stuck to it, we figured out our way through it and came out better because of it. I think the most important thing is sticking to it, being patient. Sometimes things work out. Sometimes they don't."

If the Yankees were to have scripted their first game of the season at Fenway, they very well might have put together a game in which Luis Severino, Aaron Judge and Greg Bird all starred. Severino threw seven scoreless. Judge hit a two-run homer and made a great catch. Bird had an RBI single. Meanwhile, Dellin Betances and Aroldis Chapman combined to do enough to preserve a 3-1 win over Boston.

The lessons of Pedro Martinez continue to payoff for the Yankees Luis Severino. Severino, who worked with the former Red Sox great this winter in the Dominican, threw seven scoreless innings, allowing six hits, striking out six and walking two. He left with the Yankees up, 3-0, in the eighth.

David Stern had a problem with the Nets resting Jeremy Lin, Brook Lopez and Trevor Booker in the season finale against Chicago, which clinched a playoff berth with a 112-73 win over Brooklyn. The Nets had no reason to risk any injuries to Lin and Lopez, who have dealt with injuries in the past. "I have no idea what was in the mind of the executives of the Brooklyn Nets -- none -- when they rested their starting players," Stern, the former NBA Commissioner, told USA Today. "If you're playing in a game of consequence, that has an impact, which is as good as it gets... And they sit their starters? Really? It's inexcusable in my view... shame on the Brooklyn Nets. They broke the [pact with fans]."
