- Down the Homestetch in Sochi: With the conclusion of the XXII Winter Games now in sight, we break down some of the highs and lows for Team USA entering the final week of competition, and take a closer look at the staple of every Winter Olympics; Men's Ice Hockey.

- Big Easy Welcomes the Stars: The NBA's hierarchy was in full mass in New Orleans on Saturday and Sunday, with the Smoothie King Center playing host to the annual Skills Challenge, Three-Point Shootout, Slam Dunk Contest and All-Star Game. Was the overall event a hit or miss? Did the right man take home the game's Most Valuable Player Award? Hear our take.

- Poor Officiating Takes Center Stage in College Hoops: Over the weekend, glaring mistakes by officials in both the Maryland-Duke and Arizona-Arizona State game stained the final outcome of each. Was this a precursor to the type of "madness" we're in for next month? We'll tell you.


We debate just how historically bad this year's Slam Dunk Contest truly was, as well as share our opinions on the results from ESPN's anonymous survey of NFL players regarding their thoughts on having a gay teammate, and the type of impact the loss of pitcher Ryan Dempster has on Boston's chances of repeating as World Series champions!

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