Reality is starting to kick in, folks. As much as we may not like to admit it, it's looking like we're not gonna see any pro hoops soon. Not sure about the rest of you, but one of the cornerstones of my winter is cuddling up on my couch and watching whatever NBA game is on, even if it's a snoozefest like Spurs-Warriors or something. So now we're left to scramble for quality winter entertainment. I've done some research into sports that I think can be quality basketball substitutes.

Derrick Rose travels with a bodyguard: his former high school assistant basketball coach. White Sox pitcher Jake Peavy hired a massage therapist to help him with rehab after shoulder surgery.
