CHICAGO — Marcus Smart heard Jimmy Butler’s voice first, not referee Zach Zarba’s whistle.“When Jimmy shot the ball I heard him scream, ‘No foul?’ ” said Smart while slumped in front of his locker last night as teammates filed out to begin the All-Star break. “As soon as he said that the whistle blew and I looked. And I saw him raise his hand up with the foul. And I just couldn’t believe it. But he made the call, so you have to live with it.”

For President-elect Donald Trump, 'draining the swamp' won't be so easy: 60-Second Know-It-All (video)
Once you get past the marquee names at the top, this administration may end up looking a lot like Republican administrations of the past. Watch video Associated Press  CLEVELAND, Ohio - President-elect Donald Trump's assumption of the reins of power has hit a few snags, stemming partly from his transition team's late start and partly from the ongoing existential debate over this administration's central existential debate: how will the traditional conservatives and the alt-right firebrands share power? From former Breitbart News chief Steve Bannon's appointment as Trump's chief strategist on down to his likely selection of climate-change skeptic Myron Ebell as the new head of the Environmental Protection Agency, there will be many marquee names from the fringe right to add color and set the tone for this administration. But Trump's chief of staff will be Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee and as mainstream a conservative as you'll find. That also sets a tone. And with potentially more than four thousand government posts to fill, the likelihood is that once you get past the marquee names at the top, this administration will end up looking less like the free-swinging, loose-cannon Trump presidential campaign and more like Republican administrations of the past.
