Tom Brady’s longevity in many ways meant that he was around long enough to be the spokesperson for several seasons of teams. Yes, he won a lot of fame in those years, but they came at the cost of the hopes and dreams of others.
Additionally, there were things Brady did and ways he acted that often rubbed others the wrong way – or even specifically violated league rules.
So if he is indeed retired for good this time, with nothing back, more than a few people are happy to see Brady ride off into the proverbial sunset.
Marcus Hayes, for one, isn’t waiting for a return from Brady but isn’t sure if anyone should rule him out.

The 2023 NBA trade deadline has a different feel for the 76ers. After dominating the Ben Simmons saga last season, this year feels like a breeze. Georges Niang was honest when asked about that cloud that followed the Sixers and how he felt that went away: “Obviously, we had to do something last year. But this year, I feel we are in a good position. They don’t pay me enough to make those roster moves, so I’m going to keep it at that.”
Against the Magic, the Sixers got the momentum back.

Trea Turner as a freshman was skinny as a strip of yarn, listed on North Carolina State’s official roster as 6-foot-1 and 171 pounds — measurements that had to be taken while he had fluids in his shoes and paperweights in his pockets – and he had a face that made anyone who saw him question whether he was old enough to drive, let alone drink. He rarely got his hands on a decent fake ID, and even when he did, he still failed to fool the bouncers around town. “They’d be like, ‘Dude, you look 12. This is not you. You’ve got to go home,” said former teammate Brett Austin. “He couldn’t get into a bar with me.” Mike Sielski went to Raleigh, NC, to track down the Phillies’ $300 million man back to where it started.

Perhaps no one knows this more than Temple guard Damian Dunn, who welcomed son Nolan in December and has become an essential piece of the Owls’ “compete or bust” approach to the season – as the Owls’ sixth.
Dunn talks about fatherhood, freedom, and more ahead of him and the No. 3 Houston Owls hosting on Sunday (6 p.m., ESPN2).
Sticking with Temple hoops, how about the ladies who celebrated their third straight with a 72-59 rout of Wichita State – with just eight players on their current roster after four players were released this week in the past for several reasons.
Last night was also a big one across the City 6 basketball arena for both the men’s and women’s programs as several teams got after it.
