Monster Energy Loses Trademark Opposition As UK IPO Mentions That The Letter 'M' Isn't Distinctive (techdirt)

Monster Energy: is there no trademark opposition they can't lose? The drink company, which might be more well known at this point for its trademark bullying than its beverages, has been handed loss after loss after loss after loss in trademark oppositions to everything from industrial paint manufacturers to the NBA and on to other beverage companies. Why the company spends so much time opposing trademarks is literally anyone's guess, but the losses all amount to the complete lack of potential co...

Washington wants stars to shine because it means they are winning NCAA tournament games

Coach Mike Hopkins coached Carmelo Anthony while at Syracuse and said he became a bigger star because the team won the title. He says the same will be true of UW's NBA prospects Jaylen Nowell and Matisse Thybulle. The longer the Huskies are in the tournament, the higher their status will rise.

Allen Crabbe’s donation saved Price High, which will name its basketball court after the Nets star

By Mark Whicker Allen Crabbe and several Brooklyn Nets will spend their L.A. off-night at Price High School on Wednesday. They’ll watch Price officials rename the basketball court after Crabbe, who led Price to a Division IV CIF State championship in 2010. And they’ll know that without Crabbe, there wouldn’t be a ball to bounce or a report card to ace. Angela Evans, founder of the school and Crabbe’s aunt, says she was ready to close up shop when Crabbe came through with a six-figure donation in...

Curry leads Warriors past Wolves 117-107, into 1st in West

Golden State's most recent homestand included a 33-point loss to Boston and a startling defeat to last-place Phoenix, reminding the Warriors of the work that's ahead of them to win a fourth NBA championship in five years. The Warriors passed their first challenge with a 3-1 record on this tough road trip, finishing in Minnesota with a clinic in half-court passing and shooting.

NBA Buzz: What's next for Robin Lopez?

But even with increased touches and minutes, it still comes back to a more aggressive mindset on offense that we really hadn't seen in any of Lopez' previous NBA seasons. RoLo always had the ability to score from in close, using jump hooks with either hand, but now he's displaying spinning crossovers and up-and-under moves right out of the McHale textbook. What makes this even more amazing is the scoring spree comes right after most fans and media believed RoLo's run in Chica...

Clippers coach Doc Rivers denies rumors of interest in Lakers, reveals secret deal to stay

LOS ANGELES — Clippers coach Doc Rivers denied rumors that he’s interested in the Lakers’ coaching job, insisting that he’s committed to his current team – emphasizing as much by breaking the news that earlier this season he and team owner Steve Ballmer verbally agreed to a multi-year extension. “Well, I have a job and the Lakers have a coach, No. 1,” Rivers said before Tuesday’s game against the Indiana Pacers. “And I’m going nowhere, I can tell you that. Straight. Up front. I’m going to be her...

Alexander: Mike Trout’s Angels deal rewards baseball’s best, and most humble, star

The biggest takeaway from the news of Mike Trout’s impending mega-contract: Humility pays. And maybe there’s a certain amount of karma involved in the idea that the guy who doesn’t try to sell himself, doesn’t make headlines off the field, and doesn’t try to get managers fired or set himself above his teammates just got the richest current contract in pro sports. Those commentators along the Eastern Seaboard who salivated over the idea of Trout becoming a Phillie or a Yankee after his contract r...

Draymond Green on Kevin Durant: “If he go, he go. If he stay, he stay,” focus is on title

The conventional wisdom among front offices (and league observers) is that this summer Kevin Durant will leave the Warriors. He will go to a team — maybe the Knicks, maybe the Clippers, maybe someone else — where he is the dominant force to help grow his legacy. The Warriors of the last three years, the Everest nobody else in the NBA has been able to climb, will be no more.

LeBron James, Giannis Antetokounmpo sitting out for Lakers at Bucks tonight

MILWAUKEE — For Tuesday night’s tilt between the Bucks and the Lakers, there will be low stakes and no stars.
