Top 4 Sports Stories of the Day

Choosing rest for the playoffs over the pursuit of a top seed, Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra gave LeBron James and Chris Bosh the night off Monday against the Washington Wizards . Spoelstra said James was dealing with ''the residual of a long season.'' Dwyane Wade, who recently returned after missing nine games with a sore right hamstring, was listed in the starting lineup. With the attempt to unionize football players at Northwestern University, and antitrust lawsuits being fought against the governing board of college athletics—the NCAA—experts say the day when student athletes are classified as workers and get paid may not be far off. But how much money could a player get on the open market? According to one report, it would likely mean salaries in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, if not more. The March survey, from the National College Players Association and Drexel University, said that the projected fair market value of the average college football player is $178,000 per year from 2011 to 2015, while the projected market value for the average college basketball player for the same time is $375,000. The two favorites of the Masters’ oddsmakers, Rory McIlroy and Adam Scott, finished tied for 10th and 14th. For me, Watson’s second green jacket practically screams to other pro golfers — spend less time with the swing coaches, play to your strengths, and compete. They noted how much this departed from the practice of notable Masters winners of the past like Nicklaus or Crenshaw. As Nobilo and Chamblee emphasized a similar point, saying that by tournament week, players should be thinking about shots, not swings. The NHL postseason ranks among the most exciting tournaments in sports, but that’s not the result of tight scheduling. Unlike the recently concluded NCAA Tournament, which went from play-ins to the title game in three weeks, the NHL’s postseason is a two-month-long drag. The first round alone could take two full weeks to complete. The action kicks off with three games on Wednesday, and all but one other series start on Thursday (the exception is Boston-Detroit, which plays its first game Friday night). If they were to go the full seven games, five of the eight series wouldn’t be over until the last day of the month.
