No one wrote music like Prince, so it was usually easy to identify his influence – though in some cases the artist would transform the song into something that...

The Orlando Magic may have screwed up in a big way. After signing Argentinian rookie Patricio Garino, they let an Argentinian sports agent who was with him to tweet out a picture as he signed the contract. How nice, right?

Last month, any typical NBA fan would have said that the Orlando Magic traded away Serge Ibaka for an unproven talent in Terrence Ross.
