  • LeBron denies Ultimate Warrior shirt had anything to do with beating Golden State

    After leading the Cavaliers to the 2016 NBA title, LeBron James deplane in Cleveland wearing an Ultimate Warrior shirt.

LeBron, in a Q&A with Alyson Shontell of Business Insider: Shontell: You were wearing an Ultimate Warrior shirt when you got off the plane. People loved that — well, or hated it. Be honest: Did you pack that before you won game seven? How’d you wind up wearing that shirt?

  • Billy Bush on Ryan Lochte's Robbery Lie: 'Did He Besmirch America's Character? Yes'

    Billy Bush is opening up about his now-infamous interview with swimmer Ryan Lochte about his fabricated robbery in Rio. Yes, it was an unfortunate thing for us, because it was such a sideshow for the second week of the Olympics," Bush said during a SiriusXM Today Show sit-down. Bush was the first to track down Lochte for an interview after the swimmer's mother, Ileana Lochte, told USA Today that her son and some of his teammates had been held up during a night out in Rio.

  • Ethiopia Says Olympic Runner Feyisa Lilesa Will Get Hero’s Welcome Despite Defiance

    The Olympic runner from Ethiopia who defiantly made an anti-government gesture at the finish line of the men’s marathon Sunday will receive a “heroic welcome” and not face prosecution, a government spokesman said Monday. Feyisa Lilesa crossed his arms above his head to draw attention to deadly protests in Oromia, his home region in Ethiopia, as he secured his second-place win at the end of the event of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, the Associated Press reported. “If I go back to Ethiopia, the government will kill me,” Lilesa told Sports Illustrated.

  • The Lakers and the NBA are taking another chance on Yi Jianlian

    After a few frustrating free agent chase-downs with Kobe Bryant around, and a 2016 offseason without Bryant on board, the Los Angeles Lakers have mostly committed to the idea of a full-on rebuilding project. New, “rookie” head coach Luke Walton is the team’s biggest free agent signing, there won’t be any agent-favoring vet acquisitions like Carlos Boozer and Roy Hibbert to help fill out the roster, and the team seems fully bent on working with the young prospects it has alongside the 2017 NBA draft pick it will hopefully get to keep next spring. Stuck somewhere in the middle of the favors for representatives, the raw prospects to suss out, and the vets to fill out the roster is the curious case of Yi Jianlian.

  • Puck Daddy Summer Series: Weird Philadelphia Flyers

    By punching and bulldozing their way onto the scene just a few short years after their acceptance into the league, the Flyers earned their nickname and thrived on the fear that they put into the hearts and minds of their opponents in the old days. It took them six games to take down the Buffalo Sabres and successfully defend their title in 1975, but it was a Game 3 overtime loss that stands alone in its level of weird. During a stoppage in the first period at Buffalo Memorial Auditorium, the Flyers and Sabres were joined by an unruly fan that was apparently unhappy with its upper level seating and decided to get a closer look at the action.

  • Bale stars, Zidane shows veterans the door in Real Madrid opener

    Gareth Bale required fewer than two minutes to rocket home a header and put Real Madrid up against Real Sociedad in Los Blancos‘ La Liga season opener. Bale would also score with the last kick of the game to bookend a comfortable 3-0 away victory for the 2015-16 Champions League winners. The Welshman continued his case for the 2016 Ballon d’Or following an impressive run at Euro 2016 over the summer, after a strong conclusion to the 2015-16 season. By the end of the 2015-16 season, Bale played as the central attacking figure for Zinedine Zidane’s revitalized Real Madrid.

  • Olympic Gymnast Aly Raisman Just Accepted A Date With An Oakland Raider

    Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman may have just gotten a 255-pound man to flip. Raisman, who won a gold and two silvers in the Rio Games, accepted a double date proposal from Oakland Raiders tight end Colton Underwood during an interview with the Yahoo! Sports video channel. Underwood, 24, invited the 22-year-old Raisman to go out with her gymnast pal Shawn Johnson, a 2008 Olympic gold medalist, and husband, Raiders long snapper Andrew East. Johnson and East had apparently discussed Underwood with Raisman before, and she gave her thumbs-up in the clip. “He’s very cute,” she said. “...I would go on a date with him.” While the two appear to be pretty busy, Raisman mentioned a possible rendezvous during

  • Kyle Busch criticizes Joe Gibbs Racing, Justin Allgaier after wreck at Bristol

    Even though he dominated much of race in leading 256 laps, Kyle Busch wasn’t around to reach the finish line in Sunday’s resumption of the rain-postponed Bass Pro Shops / NRA Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway.

  • New details on the Lesnar-Jericho backstage fight, kissing included

    The Wrestling Observer was first to report some wild details on a backstage confrontation between Brock Lesnar and Chris Jericho at the Barclays Center last night (Aug. 21, 2016) at SummerSlam in Brooklyn, namely the fact that there even was one. Initial word was that Jericho took umbrage with the finish to the main event, where Randy Orton was badly busted open (see the grisly evidence here), and Lesnar wasn’t a fan of Jericho making a stink about it. That led to a physical altercation between the two that was bad enough that both Triple H and Vince McMahon had to get involved to break it up. Now, Pro Wrestling Sheet is reporting some additional details on how exactly the confrontation went

  • Zach Johnson 'Rather Watch Sports That Should Be in Olympics' Instead of Golf

    In fact, he said Monday that he didn't even give Olympic golf a chance to win him over -- he refused to watch it at all. "I didn't watch golf. I'd rather watch the sports that should be in the Olympics," he said. "I'd rather watch the athletes who train for four years for that one week. Johnson was not happy with the way the Olympics affected the pros' schedule this summer and said he might support Olympic golf if amateurs played and if the tournament existed in a team format.
