Less than a week into the NBA's official free agency, nearly all of the big names have made their decisions. And while the Western Conference saw little movement, the East saw some deals that will certainly shake things up.
LeBron James, in case you hadn't heard, left the Miami Heat for the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Heat, though, kept Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade, and added Luol Deng in the process. The Chicago Bulls picked up Pau Gasol and brought over Montenegro-born Nikola Mirotic from Spain to team with a (presumably) healthy Derrick Rose. And the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday saw Lance Stephenson go to the new-look Charlotte Hornets. (Also, let's not forget about Carmelo Anthony staying with the New York Knicks and Jason Kidd leaving the Brooklyn Nets to coach the Milwaukee Bucks.) Naturally, there are a lot of questions ...
The MLB's second half is upon us, and only two teams have leads of more than 1.5 games in their respective divisions. In other words, this should get intense. Who will win all the divisions? The leagues? The World Series? Cast your votes below!

MVP honors, however, went to the almost-undisputed best player in baseball, Mike Trout; the Los Angeles Angels outfielder went 2-for-3 with a double, triple and two RBIs -- including the game-winner. St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright, meanwhile, stirred some controversy by saying he intentionally took it easy on Jeter (he later walked back a bit on his comments). Did Jeter get snubbed? Do you have a problem with Wainwright?
Yasiel Puig hit zero home runs. Giancarlo Stanton also posted a no-homer round. But when it all was over, the 2014 Home Run Derby went the same way as 2013: with Yoenis Cespedes the winner. The Oakland Athletics left fielder topped the Cincinnati Reds' Todd Frazier 9-1 in the final round, and became the first back-to-back winner of the contest since Ken Griffey Jr. in 1998 and 1999. The victory came under a new format, in which there were only seven outs, and the top hitter from each league got a bye into the finals, where they would face the winner of a playoff between the Nos. 2 and 3 hitters.
