• We all know Kings guard Jimmer Fredette can shoot, but has he replaced Marcus Thornton in the rotation because he can help the team or is he being showcased for a trade?

• Thornton led the Kings in scoring two years ago and was the starting shooting guard at the beginning of the season, so what’s the real story of why he didn’t play at all in two victories over Phoenix?

• Kings center DeMarcus Cousins has shown he can score down low against almost anyone, so why does he still take 20-foot jump shots?

• Lists of top young quarterbacks in the NFL usually include Colin Kaepernick, Robert Griffin III, Andrew Luck and Russell Wilson, but who’s playing better than Carolina’s Cam Newton?

• If Matt McGloin repeats last week’s performance and leads the Raiders to victory again, what happens to Terrelle Pryor when he recovers from his knee injury?

• When the Broncos and Peyton Manning play the Patriots and Tom Brady on Sunday night, how many times will we hear it’s a preview of the AFC Championship Game?

• In Foot Locker’s new commercial, Dennis Rodman is cheered when he purchases a one-way ticket to North Korea; isn’t that what we all want, too?

• If Manny Pacquiao loses to Brandon Rios in tonight’s WBO welterweight title fight, isn’t it time the eight-division champion (54-5-2, 371 rounds) hangs up his gloves for good?

• If Alabama, Florida State, Ohio State and Baylor all finish the season undefeated, shouldn’t the NCAA give fans what they want – a four-team playoff – this season?

• When Sacramento State and UC Davis play the 60th annual Causeway Classic today, will fans fill Hornet Stadium to support our two local colleges?
