    'Boogie' to replace injured Kobe Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins was selected Friday by NBA Commissioner Adam Silver to replace injured Lakers star Kobe Bryant on the Western Conference All-Star team. Silver's choice leaves Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard as the game's biggest snub. Lillard could still be picked if another player drops out before the Feb. 15 game at New York's Madison Square Garden. Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr, who is leading the West, will decide who replaces Bryant in the starting lineup.

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Bill Elliott headlined the sixth class of inductees into NASCAR's Hall of Fame, a group that included three champions, the first African-American winner and a driver with movie star looks. “Awesome Bill From Dawsonville” was NASCAR's 1988 champion, a 44-race winner and the first driver to win the Winston Million bonus in 1985 for winning three NASCAR crown jewel races.

Mom-and-pop shops and large companies hoping to cash in on the game — but also don't want to run afoul of league lawyers — have found ways to color inside the lines.
