Thibodeau comes highly recommended - from the highest of places

Current Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau has a heck of a list of references. In fact, he has some of the top players in Washington, D.C. singing his praises.

Bulls owner Jerry Reinsdorf told the Chicago Sun-Times that Thibs was first recommended to him by U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan (who played for Thibodeau at Harvard). When the position became available and Thibs was hired, David Axelrod thanked Reinsdorf for hiring his old assistant coach.

President Barack Obama approved of the deal as well. He told Reinsdorf, "Great hire." (Chicago Sun-Times)

No disciplinary action from NHL for Chara

Bruins captain Zdeno Chara will not be fined of suspended for Tuesday night's hit on Canadiens Max Pacioretty.

By now, you've probably seen Chara's terrifying hit on Pacioretty along the boards that saw Pacioretty slam his head into the stanchion separating the benches. After laying motionless on the ice for minutes, he was taken off the ice on a stretcher and moved to the hospital for observation.

Chara was kicked out of the game and given a five-minute major for interference for the hit. (CSN New England)

Suh says Bears' O-line needs youth

Ndamukong Suh has plenty to say about the Bears' O-line, and it's not all too flattering. In an interview on NFL Network, Suh called the offensive line on the Chicago Bears "over the hill."

Suh said that the Bears' key to getting better has to do with the O-line.

"I think they have a good offensive line, but it's a matter that they're definitely trying to get over the hill, and they're getting there," Suh said. (National Football Post)

Jose Abreu has already begun mentoring Luis Robert

As the White Sox have added young Cuban stars in the making in Yoan Moncada and Luis Robert, Jose Abreu's long-term role on the team has shifted.

The 31-year-old first baseman has been looked at as something of a mentor for the two young Cubans. He seems to be delivering on that so far.

Abreu picked up Moncada from the airport when he first was called up to the White Sox last July. Now he's helping Robert in the batting cage.

The Cuban trio is expected to play a big part of the White Sox future in the coming years. 

Robert has already stated his goal of making it to the majors this year to join Abreu and Moncada, but that may be an overly ambitious goal. Either way, plenty of eyes will be on him throughout 2018 as he marches towards the White Sox roster and his Cuban teammates.
