Saban’s idea of a good lunch is a hotly contested pickup basketball game at noon with his assistants and staff members. He has been doing it since his days at LSU and is always the point guard. Rumor has it that he’s also the commissioner and is usually the one to choose up sides. When he and Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher were together at LSU, they had some epic battles, but Saban quipped, Jimbo always won because he was on my team. I was the point guard, and he was the shooting guard. — C.L.
Among notable deflations in the rankings, Paul George is sacrificing a good bit of point production and is seeing a sizable downturn in complementary stats, such as rebounds and assists, while integrating into an offense that funnels through Russell Westbrook. There will be better days ahead for George, but I fear most of his value surfaces best in category formats, where his 2.7 steals and nice shooting clip translates to providing help at often scarce stats, whereas his loss of volume in a new role really curbs the appeal in points leagues.

In Week 4, ESPN’s Monday night rating for the Kansas City-Washington game was 19 percent lower than the Detroit-Seattle Week 4 game in 2015. NBC’s Sunday night Indianapolis-Seattle rating was down 32 percent compared to the Dallas-New Orleans game in 2015. Now, you can say a lot about that second comparison, namely that any game Devonta Freeman Authentic Jersey with Dallas will get a good rating. But no matter what the matchup, to be down by a third, week over week, from two years ago is notable.
Now, I doubt in NBC’s case that a third fewer people watched this year’s game in Week 4 than watched in 2015. People who follow the ratings game closely tell me that some fans are cord-cutters who have found ways to watch that aren’t measured by traditional rating services. Still, the numbers are concerning.
