Nas (@Nas) Hip Hop Fellowship At Harvard

When multi-platinum hiphop artist Nas was growing up in the housing projects in Queensbridge, New York, he probably wouldn’t have guessed Harvard would ask to create a hiphop fellowship in his name 30 years later. But it’s happening. So how do you design a home for hiphop at Harvard? We ventured to find out.

Indiana Pacers head coach Frank Vogel will coach the East All-Stars in 2014 NBA All-Star Game, the league announced Tuesday.

Vogel has led the Pacers are 30-7 this season and they are three games ahead of the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference standings.

The West All-Star coach will be determined by the best record in the conference through games played on Feb. 2.

Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra and San Antonio’s Gregg Popovich coached last year’s All-Star Game, won by the West, 143-138, making them ineligible to coach this year’s game.

The All-Star Game will take place February 16 at the New Orleans Arena in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Voting for the players ends on Jan. 20, and starters will be announced Jan. 23. Reserves will be announced on Jan. 30.  Pacers forward Paul George has the second-highest vote total in the Eastern Conference through the third round of returns announced by the league.

Lions Hire Jim Caldwell As Head Coach

The Detroit Lions have hired Jim Caldwell as head coach, ending a two-week search during which they interviewed only four candidates.

The 58-year-old Caldwell fit a lot of the criteria Detroit had during its search. The Lions wanted someone with head-coaching experience and experience on offense, apparently preferably with quarterbacks.

“On behalf on my entire family, I want to express how thrilled we are with the appointment of Jim Caldwell as our new head coach,” Lions owner and chairman William Clay Ford said. “We believe Jim is the right man to lead our team and deliver a championship to our fans.”

Caldwell became the second minority candidate to land a head-coaching job this month, joining new Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith.

“To be openly frank, we felt that he should be the guy,” Fritz Pollard Alliance Foundation chairman John Wooten said Tuesday afternoon. “We really wanted him in that particular team. Thought it was an excellent fit.”

Caldwell was the first person to interview for the Detroit job, followed by former Texans coach Gary Kubiak, former Titans coach Mike Munchak and former Chargers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt.

Detroit was spurned by Whisenhunt, thought to be the top choice, on Monday when he chose the Titans job.
