Yesterday, the New Jersey Nets beat the San Antonio Spurs for their 10th win of the season, finally distancing themselves from the record of the worst team in NBA history, the 72-73 Philadelphia 76ers. So the question is, did players on this team lose any future revenue from being able to call themselves the biggest (or at least tied with) losers in league history?
It’s the feel good story of the tournament: The little guys from Butler playing in their hometown of Indianapolis in the Final Four. But Butler being in the tournament means it takes a spot from another team that could travel from farther away, fly in, stay in more hotel rooms and spend more at restaurants.
It took just two and half minutes into the New York Rangers v. New York Islanders hockey game to deliver what many curious fans watching the 3D telecast wanted to see: the first 3D hockey fight. While the fight itself didn’t amount to much, the 3D aspect didn’t disappoint.

I’ve seen brands make big commitments to certain properties, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a product make as big of a splash in a traditional platform as Hershey’s Reese’s brand has made over the past couple weeks.
On "Squawk On The Street," I went one-on-one with the very marketable alpine skier Lindsey Vonn. Here's my complete interview, with some highlights below.
