• Last season, the NBA changed its All-Star Game format so that the leading vote-getter from each Conference would be a team captain, with the squads drafted not from a specific Conference but rather from the overall pool. The draft was not televised, which drew criticism from fans and media. This season, the NBA and players have agreed to show the draft on TV, with a day and time on TNT TBD. The All Star Game is scheduled for Feb. 17 in Spectrum Center, home of the Charlotte Hornets.

• Between now and Nov. 19, every use of #SaluteToService on Twitter will generate a $5 donation, up to $5 million, to the NFL’s military non-profit partners – including the Pat Tillman Foundation, TAPS, USO, Wounded Warrior Project and the Bob Woodruff Foundation. On Veteran’s Day this donation will be increased to $25.
