Illini football players can't forget basketball's title loss to North Carolina in 2005

The mere mention of that team from Tobacco Road brings up bad memories of 2005 and an Illinois men’s basketball team that was derailed from destiny by the Tar Heels. Bruce Weber’s team fell to Roy Williams & Co. 75-70 in the national championship game. The Tar Heels come to town Saturday to face the Illini football team, and that 2005 loss still cuts deep for many. (State Journal-Register)

Harrison Barnes' first priority? Proving himself to Dirk Nowitzki

Imagine being promoted from bartender to the guy in charge of making the beer. Or from greenskeeper to head pro. That out-of-comfort-zone feeling is sort of where Harrison Barnes finds himself as the Mavericks' new $94 million man.

Ty Lawson has to reinvent himself, whether he wants to or not

Ty Lawson was having a nice career until the summer of 2015. He won a national championship at North Carolina before being selected in the first round of the 2009 draft. In the second half of his rookie year, he was promoted to the starting spot and he eventually became a near All-Star on some Nuggets teams that made the playoffs and generally overachieved. He was a great success story. (SB Nation)

Vince Carter Hopes to Play Two More Seasons

Vince Carter continues his NBA career at 39, many years removed from when he was one of the game's most explosive dunkers and best wing scorers. Carter was asked what keeps him playing after all these years. "I just love to play. It's not out of me yet. I still love it." Carter hopes to play at least two more seasons. (RealGM)
