Washington Wizards

Good: The Wizards have been a team that has seemingly finally gotten it together. Bradley Beal is fun and exciting to root for while John Wall is the superstar everyone has been waiting on. Let’s be honest, D.C. sports fans haven’t exactly had the best of  luck recently, so this one can be theirs.

Boston Celtics

Good: The team has been built with patience and intelligence and that’s commendable. Isaiah Thomas exudes confidence in his play style, as though he always knows where the ball is going. Also, prior to the Celtics’ game 2 win, Stevens put the lineup of Isaiah Thomas, Terry Rozier, Marcus Smart, Avery Bradley and Al Horford on the court, making for what was very dominant game play.

Tony Romo is Joining Jim Nantz on CBS

Tony Romo, FanWideToday marks the end of an era for the Dallas Cowboys with not only the release of quarterback Tony Romo, but also his retirement from the NFL. The news ushers in a new legacy for the Cowboys with the team’s focus being on the 23 year old Dak Prescott.

It isn’t the end for Romo though, you’ll still be able to catch him on CBS for the foreseeable future. At the beginning of the 2017 NFL season he will be taking over for Phil Simms and will be broadcasting alongside Jim Nantz.

There is a long history of retired NFL players in the broadcast booth. Romo joins the likes of Chris Collinsworth, Frank Gifford, Don Meredith and many more as announcers.
