Paul George returns to Team USA after gruesome leg injury

Paul George doesn’t look like he has skipped a beat. George took the court Friday against Argentina in an exhibition and posted 18 points, two boards and an assist in a lopsided 111-74 victory. Folks will recall the last time George took the court with Team USA, when he went up and came down, shattering […]

Celtics ‘would love to pry’ Gordon Hayward from Jazz?

The Boston Celtics might have Gordon Hayward of the Utah Jazz on the trade radar. Danny Ainge and the Celtics haven’t exactly struck gold this summer. The team missed on Kevin Durant and hasn’t found a way to swing a trade for a Russell Westbrook, DeMarcus Cousins or even Jahlil Okafor, among others. Hayward, though, […]

Kevin Durant jerseys going for 48 cents in Oklahoma City

It’s hard to imagine many in the Oklahoma City area want to buy a Kevin Durant jersey right now. Durant pulled the worst move since The Decision recently, abandoning the Thunder for the Golden State Warriors. As many know, this might not stand as such a huge ordeal had he not went and joined the […]

Browns coach Hue Jackson has “drawn up plays” for Terrelle Pryor

Head coach Hue Jackson and the Cleveland Browns aren’t forgetting about talent-laden receiver Terrelle Pryor.

With Big 12 Set for Expansion, Which Schools Will Join?

Earlier this week, the Big 12 authorized its commissioner, Bob Bowlsby to start exploring expansion options for the conference. Though it has yet to be determined if two or four teams will join the Big 12, there has been lots of chitchat about which schools would make the best fit. While there are many factors […]


Titans’ Jurrell Casey works at fast food joint

NFL players only have a few more days to rest up before training camp. Titans defensive end Jurrell Casey wasn’t resting on Thursday, however. He was serving breakfast at a fast food restaurant. The Pro Bowler worked a half-hour shift (grueling, huh?) at Hardee’s in Bellevue, Tennessee Thursday as part of the team’s promotional tie-in with the franchise. […]

Lakers have ‘unnamed trade target in mind’

The Los Angeles Lakers might have another trade in mind. The Lakers and president Mitch Kupchak brought on Jose Calderon in a bit of a salary dump recently after a somewhat disappointing summer. Somewhat, because while the team drafted Brandon Ingram, the big free-agency get was Timofey Mozgov and Luol Deng, not Kevin Durant or […]

Manu Ginobili talks interest in 76ers before sticking with Spurs

For Manu Ginobili, the Philadelphia 76ers were much more than a leverage piece for more money. It seems odd to think Ginobili might have signed with the rebuilding 76ers as opposed to sticking with the San Antonio Spurs, but it almost happened—which maybe isn’t that surprising considering this is the summer where Kevin Durant joined […]

Nets’ Luis Scola isn’t fan of New York rental prices

Luis Scola is getting a taste of the big-city life with the Brooklyn Nets. The 36-year-old forward inked a deal with Brooklyn this offseason and had to relocate after spending last year with the Toronto Raptors.

The Pittsburgh Steelers could play the first month of the 2016 season without running back Le’Veon Bell, who is reportedly facing a suspension from the NFL.

What will the Baseball Hall of Fame look like over the next decade?

No player gets to the Hall of Fame by chance. All that are fortunate enough to be elected have earned their way in (just as some have earned exclusion). Ken Griffey Jr. and Mike Piazza, the two headliners of Sunday’s induction ceremony, each proved that there is no set path to Cooperstown. Griffey was the No. […]

Stephen Curry ‘disappointed’ that All-Star game moved from Charlotte (VIDEO)

Stephen Curry was probably excited that his home town, Charlotte, was set to host the 2017 All-Star game. With him playing high school ball there, returning to play in the game probably would’ve brought some nostalgia. Unfortunately, the All-Star game was moved because of the state’s House Bill 2, which effectively takes away anti-discrimination protections for lesbian, […]

JJ Watt has back surgery, will begin camp on PUP list

Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt, at one point, was arguably the best defensive player in the NFL—or at least the most dominant. While last season saw a slight decrease in sacks recorded by Watt (17.5 vs 20.5), as well as tackles (76 vs 78), he faced a lot of double teams and was still […]

Josh Norman fires back at Odell Beckham

After recently signing a five-year, $75 million with the Washington Redskins, we knew star cornerback Josh Norman would eventually respond to Odell Beckham’s recent comments, and sure enough, he did.

Lisa Ann addresses Ray Rice relationship rumors

Former porn star Lisa Ann is no stranger to having encounters with athletes, in fact, she prefers them.
