Busy Stretch on Sterling, O'Bannon, Redskins, Painkillers, Insider Trading, LeBron, Carmelo, A-Rod, Dan Marino, Johnny Manziel, Ken Feinberg . . .

Since the Donald Sterling story broke on April 26, I've written 41 columns for Sports Illustrated,, MMQB and  The last 10 weeks have been a busy stretch! I have a week's worth of columns from last week's Sterling hearing that I didn't get a chance to blog on.  In general, I haven't had a chance to blog, but I'm grateful that others on our blog have contributed with excellent posts.  I appreciate the great insights in these columns from Robert Raiola, Alan Milstein, Larry Coon, Daniel Wallach, Warren Zola, Mark McKenna and Eugene Egdorf.  I also received outstanding feedback by e-mail and on Twitter, and am grateful to all of the readers.
