According to Darrelle Revis, he hadn't met new Jets general manager John Idzik until just this past week. He called it more of an introduction than anything, but Revis said that Idzik told him that the Jets wanted him to remain on the roster. That was his understanding despite months of trade rumors. Of course, he is now with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. ... Revis said he was ready to move on, but did add that he didn't feel Idzik was being straight with him. "I felt that type of vibe that they weren't truthful," Revis said. "I don't feel anything, I mean it's over. It happened. You have to move on it's a new chapter in my life." Obviously, it would not be in the Jets best interest to tell Revis he was being dealt. (Newark Star-Ledger) Comment

It's part of what junior guard Russ Smith is weighing right now as he debates whether he's going to stay in the NBA draft or return to school for his senior season. Smith said he'll sit down with men's basketball coach Rick Pitino today, sleep on the information he gets and make a final decision on Wednesday. Smith, who led the Cardinals in scoring with 18.7 points per game, said it was easily the toughest decision he's ever had to make. (Louisville Courier-Journal) Comment
These days, the most famous sideline "fan" may be Kobe Bryant, but Derrick Rose ranks closely behind. "He really wants to play," teammate Luol Deng was saying in the visiting locker room, after the Bulls became the first road team to win in these playoffs with a 90-82 victory in Brooklyn on Monday night. "And this decision, even though people are coming down on him, it's really killing him. It's really hurting him. I know how much he wants to be out there with us." But he hasn't been, and won't be. For now and for the foreseeable future, a spectator is all Derrick Rose will be in this first-round series with the Nets. "I know that for a fact," a person briefed on Rose's non-timetable timetable said after the game. (CBS Sports) Comment
