Your TV can be spec'd out, but the truth you will only ever be as good as your input. All HDTV in north america is broadcast at the same rate (1080p | 60 Hz refresh rate). So watching sports will only be that good until 4K broadcasting happens a little down the pike.

Industry is moving away from this with manufacturers cutting down on the amount of plasma TV's currently being made. With 4K down the pike and oLED and LED TV's seeing a major price drop next quarter, I would recommend that as the smartest option.

The look great and consume a lot less power.
HDTV is actually broadcast at 1080i maximum.
