It's time for sports with Andy and Brian Kamenetzky, who have covered the sports scene for ESPN and the L.A. Times.

The NBA trade deadline is tomorrow at noon. Any teams looking to get better or get rid of players have just over 24 hours to get all that done. We start with the 7-foot elephant in the room, the Lakers Pau Gasol.  

As good as the Clippers have been this season, last night's loss to defending Western Conference champion San Antonio Spurs showed that they may need a little something more to become a championship contender. Do the Clips need to do something?  What about any block busters around the league? Will there be any big names moved?

Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig has a zest for life. He plays fast, he drives fast, but will we see a calmer, cooler Puig this season?

Speaking about being true to yourself, ESPN did a little survey of NFL players on Michael Sam.  

It is not often that I will cite a biblical verse for sports with the Kamenetzky Brothers but today it applies. The gospel of Matthew 7:7: "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will open to you."

American gold medal snowboarder Sage Kostenberg did just that and the blessings have been bestowed upon him. (wished Olympic medals were made out of bacon and a company made one for him).
