Football fun again, so Rice plays on (AP)
After years in the spotlight, Jerry Rice wants to enjoy the twilight. More concerned with having fun than trying to live up to the expectations thrust upon football's greatest receiver, Rice was hungry for a 21st season.

MIAMI – Dwyane Wade rebounded from a shaky Game 1 thanks in part to the Heat's improved defense.

Medical reason may force Brown to quit (AP)
Each time Miami and Detroit play, Dwyane Wade seems to decide who wins. When he had 40 points, eight rebounds and six assists Wednesday, it made sense the Heat beat the Pistons 92-86 and evened the best-of-seven Eastern Conference finals at a game apiece.

The Phoenix Suns don't want to hear it. Right now, they couldn't care less that the agonizing way they've lost the first two games of the Western Conference finals might one day make them a better playoff team. But coach Mike D'Antoni understands. He knows how tough, and how rare, it is for an NBA team to come out of nowhere and make it all the way to the finals.

Ginobili doing it all for Spurs (AP)
When Manu Ginobili joined the San Antonio Spurs three seasons ago, he was a backup and offense was an afterthought. That club was all about defense and did it so well it won the championship.

The difference: Ginobili is now a starter and, not so coincidentally, San Antonio's offense is a lot...
