The Starters followed their hoop dreams, and won: Arthur

thestar.com — Picture your buddies, your sports buddies, and the best version of them. Picture the way they like sports: No trying to one-up each other, no mean-spirited jibes, they know what they're talking about, and they make good jokes. It's nice, having friends like that.

Beyonce doesn’t deserve NBA all-star cold shoulder: Arthur

thestar.com — It's easy to forget while the Leafs are trading 37 players in a day, but the NBA is coming to Toronto this weekend. Some of it is already here, so look busy, guys. Or cool, whichever. You only get one chance to make a first impression.

Trading Dion Phaneuf to Sens is about more than Steven Stamkos: Arthur

thestar.com — Let's get this out of the way: On Tuesday, the Toronto Maple Leafs did not trade for Steven Stamkos. They did trade Dion Phaneuf, yes, which is an accomplishment in its own right. Phaneuf was expensive, and slowing down. Like most of us, he is not getting any younger.

The unapologetic Cam Newton: Arthur

thestar.com — SAN FRANCISCO-This week, more than any other, has felt like a referendum on Cam Newton. Not as a player, really: that part has been established. He produced 73% of the offensive yards for the No. 1 scoring team in football. He is the MVP, though there is always the chance of some retroactive re-voting Sunday night.

NFL Pick - Cats in the bag: Arthur

thestar.com — Carolina (-5.5) at Denver Two weeks ago, I tried to talk myself into the Denver Broncos. Their defence is not just good, but great. This team won 12 games in the regular season with the second-worst quarterbacking in the NFL.

Roger Goodell’s words are hollow and meaningless: Arthur

thestar.com — SAN FRANCISCO-In these troubled times, it can be easy to just throw up your hands and think nothing matters. Look at the list of people running for President, for God's sake. Look at the Zika virus.

Coldplay enjoys their time in Super Bowl spotlight

thestar.com — SAN FRANCISCO-Every year, the Super Bowl halftime show press conference is a piece of modern Americana. Beyoncé admitted she had to lip-sync the Star-Spangled Banner at President Barack Obama's 2013 inauguration because she hadn't had time between practicing for the Super Bowl halftime show the same year.

NFL simply refuses to acknowledge concussion reality: Arthur

thestar.com — SAN FRANCISCO-Chris Nowinski didn't intend to talk to the press; he just dropped by to hear what the National Football League had to say these days about brain injuries, about concussions, about the neurological disease known as CTE. Nowinski is the leading concussion safety advocate in the United States, and just wanted to listen.

Concussions go under the carpet for Super Bowl week: Arthur

thestar.com — SANTA CLARA, CALIF.-One night Ryan Harris went to the movies with his wife. Harris is an eighth-year offensive lineman for the Denver Broncos, and started all 16 games this season. Going out was a nice way to unwind, until it wasn't. "My wife started crying," says the six-foot-five, 302-pound Harris.

Manning has one day to look forward to, a lot to look back on: Arthur

thestar.com — SANTA CLARA, CALIF.-He can't really disguise the coverage, much as Peyton Manning tries. He's met with the media twice in two days here in San Francisco - well, near San Francisco, as this is also the Super Bowl of bus rides - and both times you can see what's in there.
