LeBron James Misses Playoffs with Lakers; Jim Delany Stepping Down as Big Ten Commish; Michigan State / Nebraska Men's Basketball Preview; Detroit Pistons in Playoff Spot

On today's Current Sports with Al Martin we start by addressing the struggles of LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers, who look like they will miss the NBA playoffs. Al discusses how this hurts the legacy of James. We also dive into the news that Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany is stepping down in 2020. How would you grade the success of Delany's tenure? We then provide a preview of tonight's MSU men's basketball game against Nebraska and Al gives credit to Dwane Casey for leading the Detroit Pistons into playoff contention. That, and more!
