David Steele -- Points after

The Baltimore Sun

After that debacle in Game 4 of the NBA Finals, Kobe Bryant might maintain his well-publicized stance of trusting his teammates tonight. But don't hold your breath.

As the Lakers face elimination, it bears repeating: I wonder how things would be if Bryant had decided to trust his teammates when Shaquille O'Neal was one of them instead of Pau Gasol.

It's the nature of the game, but after all the reminders of the greatness of Jonathan Ogden, consider this about this year's Ravens: Is who starts at quarterback really a bigger deal than who starts at left tackle?

Brought up as Ogden was saying goodbye: The 2013 induction class in Canton - Ogden, Brett Favre, Michael Strahan - could be the NFL's answer to last summer's Cooperstown induction class of Cal Ripken and Tony Gwynn.

Ken Griffey Jr. pulled off the rare 600-600 double at the cavernous ballpark in Miami: 600 homers, 600 fans.
