- NBA All-Star Weekend Recap: In Houston, Kyrie Irving had a coming-out party of sorts, Chris Paul put on a show, and Kobe got the better of LeBron down the stretch of the All-Star Game. We recap the festive weekend that was in the NBA.

- The Passing of a Legendary Owner: On Monday, longtime Los Angeles Lakers owner Jerry Buss passed away following a year-long battle with cancer. We take a look back at his historic tenure as team owner, and discuss how important Buss was to both the Lakers and the league as a whole.

- Danica Takes the Pole: On Sunday, Danica Patrick won the pole for the Daytona 500, and in the process, became the first woman to secure the top spot for any race in NASCAR's premier circuit. What does this mean for Danica moving forward, and where can we expect her to finish in the big race? We'll tell you.


We discuss Cal head basketball coach Mike Montgomery's shove of guard Allen Crabbe in a win over USC on Sunday, and give our picks for the NBA's Most Valuable Player at the midway point of the season!

All this and more in this week's edition of The Bleacher Briefings podcast!
