DALLAS (AP) -- Now that the voters have chosen Troy Polamalu over Clay Matthews for The Associated Press 2010 NFL Defensive Player of the Year award, the two stars can prove their worth against each other on the field.
In the Super Bowl.
Pittsburgh safety Polamalu received 17 votes Monday from a nationwide panel of 50 media members who cover the league, edging Green Bay linebacker Matthews More »
The votes are in and we have our starting fives for the NBA All-Star game. Big props to Amar’e Stoudemire getting the first Knicks start since Patrick Ewing way, way back in 1997. As a Bulls fan, you know I’m absolutely PUMPED to see my main man Derrick Rose starting on the East. It’s going to be a crazy point guard battle between Rose and Chris Paul on the West. Other than that, your standard stars fill out the rest of the rosters – even a standard star who hasn’t played all season, like Yao Ming.
But enough about the results, let’s get to some cool early pictures of the stars in their well-earned unis. Keep reading to check out full-sized pics of All-Stars LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Kevin Durant, Paul and Stoudemire.
Trash talking in sports is all around us; everyone hears it constantly. While trash talking may be said jokingly, lately in professional sports it has gone too far.

Did you hear thunder Wednesday night? Or, perhaps the growl of a cougar? You may have, only it came in the form of Kevin Durant and Jimmer Fredette’s wild shooting displays. The Oklahoma Thunder forward and Brigham Young Cougar guard made a lot of noise on the court last night, combining for 90 points in a pair of offensive explosions that set the NBA and college hoops on fire. Durant’s 47 and Fredette’s 43 point performances were not only blowing up highlight shows everywhere, they also ignited the question: who had the better performance? Check out my breakdown of the two scoring machines and let me know what you think in the comments.
A few pitchers are lucky enough to throw a no-hitter in their career. Roy Halladay threw two…and both of them were last year…and one of them was a perfect game…and the other was in his playoff debut! Are you kidding me!?!?
Amazing accomplishments like these make Halladay an aficionado on the art of the no-hitter. They also make him perfect for the cover of Major League Baseball 2K11. That’s because 2K Sports will once again award $1,000,000 to the first person to pitch a verified perfect game in MLB 2K11. (Gamers can start trying to throw their perfectos on opening day, April 1, 2011.)
I caught up with Halladay on the set of his upcoming commercial for 2K11 to talk about real no-hitters, video game no-hitters, and the Phillies potentially historic pitching staff. Keep reading to hear what he said...
