Gulls return to San Diego for Game 3 against Stars – San Diego Union-Tribune
Here it is: the Gulls’ first home playoff game in their return to San Diego, set for Thursday at 7:05 p.m. against the Texas Stars at the Valley View Casino Center.

Those are the basics, but this game is so much more. This game — the third of the Gulls’ first-round series of the Calder Cup playoffs, which is tied at one game apiece — is crucial, as it could dictate the direction of the rest of the series, and help provide an answer to the question that emerged when this playoff matchup was announced: Can the Gulls conquer the Stars, the team that caused them the most trouble of any during the regular season?

Fantex offers professional athletes an up-front, one-time payment in exchange for a portion of that player’s future earnings both on and off the field. Fantex then sells “shares” of that player to public investors for a set price (thus covering the up-front payment to the player), allowing those investors to turn a profit if said player crosses a certain threshold in his career earnings.

Warriors grant Los Angeles Lakers permission to interview Luke Walton – USA Today
According to Warriors coach Steve Kerr, the Warriors have granted the Lakers permission to speak with Walton about their vacant coaching position. As it stands, however, Walton does not want to take part in interviews while a playoff series is still ongoing. He would be open to interviewing between rounds of the playoffs, however, meaning the two sides can speak now that the Golden State Warriors defeated the Houston Rockets in their opening series last night.
