  • Hornets co-owner rips NBA, pols for All-Star exit in wild email

    The NBA on Thursday followed through on multiple previous threats by announcing it was pulling the 2017 NBA All-Star Game out of Charlotte in opposition to House Bill 2, a law passed in March by North Carolina legislators and signed by Republican Gov. Pat McCrory that reversed a Charlotte city ordinance expanding rights and protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. The Charlotte Hornets, who were in line to play host to next winter’s midseason event, and Michael Jordan, the franchise’s chairman and majority owner who had previously made it clear that the organization is “opposed to discrimination in any form,” issued a statement saying that they “understand the NBA’s decision and the challenges around holding the NBA All-Star Game in Charlotte this season,” and “are disappointed we were unable to” keep the game in town.

  • How sparring with Manny Pacquiao gave Viktor Postol newfound confidence

    Can Viktor Postol overcome the odds against Terence Crawford on Saturday? LAS VEGAS – Viktor Postol’s introduction to Freddie Roach wasn’t quite as random as Manny Pacquiao’s, but Postol is hopeful that aligning with the seven-time Trainer of the Year can have a fraction of the positive impact upon him that it had on the Filipino superstar. Roach turned Pacquiao from a good but unknown fighter with plenty of flaws into a world champion in a record eight weight divisions.

  • Report: Mavericks up final deal with Dirk Nowtizki to two-years, $50 million

Dallas is signing Nowitzki to a larger-than-expected two-year, $50 million contract, reports Marc Stein of ESPN. The Dallas Mavericks and face of the franchise Dirk Nowitzki have finalized their expected new deal with another bump in pay that sets the star forward up to earn $50 million over the next two seasons and play until age 40, league sources told ESPN.

  • What the iconic 1989 Ken Griffey Jr. Upper Deck card means to a generation of fans

    My weekly allowance was $3, and packs of Upper Deck baseball cards, the coolest things I’d ever seen, with their impossibly white borders and holograms on the back – holograms! – were $2 apiece, so I’d resigned myself to one. Ken, the mustachioed man who ran the place and a couple years earlier sold me my first baseball cards, said he’d give me two for $3. Baseball cards were the first drug I ever tried, and they hooked me immediately.

  • Drake forced Kentucky into reporting another violation

    Kentucky was forced to report a Level III violation to the NCAA back in October due to “preferential treatment” that a player received, according to a report from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Here’s what happened: a player, whose name was redacted in the report, was spotted by Drake or one of his entourage and was invited backstage at a concert. Drake did not provide the tickets and was not in touch with the player prior to the start of the show, but it is a violation nonetheless.

  • The Silver Lining In J.J. Watt's Back Injury

    Three-time Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt had surgery to repair a herniated disc, which means Watt will open training camp on the physically unable to perform list (PUP). We can all speculate on the timetables for recovery, but Watt is the only one who truly knows. Based on the history of recovery from such an injury, he is projected to miss as much as 8-10 weeks, which includes the entire preseason and possibly a regular season game or four on top of that, depending on how his body heals. We all hope that Watt has a speedy recovery, and in the back of our mind, we honestly expect it. Recovery will be yet another challenge for a guy who seems to be addicted to, well, obliterating challenges.

  • Horrigan: Correa's 46-month 'Hackgate' sentence is ridiculous

    Mark Appel, a 6-foot, 5-inch right-handed pitcher whom the Houston Astros made the first player selected in Major League Baseball’s 2013 amateur draft, currently is laboring for the Lehigh Valley IronPigs. His record is 3-3 with a 4.46 earned run average. I bring this up because (a) I want an IronPigs cap and (b) because the Astros’ 2013 draft plans were hacked by Chris Correa, then the director of scouting for the St. Louis Cardinals. Last week Correa was sentenced by a federal judge in Houston to 46 months in prison for breaking into the Astros’ player analysis database. As an Astros fan, I suppose I should be gratified by this hefty sentence. The heftiness is based in part on the fact that

  • Why are Saints holding out on contract talks with Drew Brees?

    Drew Brees was thought to be a lock to earn a contract extension this offseason, but the New Orleans Saints didn’t oblige. Now we’re learning there hasn’t been any meaningful conversations on this front in a long while. This has Brees feeling a bit perplexed. “Not sure why things have not progressed,” said Brees, per ESPN’s Mike Triplett. “They made an offer in March, we made an offer shortly thereafter. And besides the Josh Norman deal [when the Saints approached Brees about restructuring his contract to try to fit the star cornerback under their salary cap], there has been no talk about a contract since.” The Saints were expected to extend Brees’ contract after the 2015 season because the quarterback

  • Jon Jones’ family looks worse and worse every day

    For your health and others’, don’t keep up with the Joneses. Brothers Jon Jones, Arthur Jones and Chandler Jones have had a miserable 2016, mixing in suspensions with arrests, becoming more known for getting hit with bans than hitting others. Arthur’s offense is the most recent, but only just barely. The Colts defensive lineman was suspended Friday for the first four games of the 2016 for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. The 30-year-old signed a five-year, $33 million deal in 2014, then played just nine games that season before zero in 2015 due to an injured left ankle. PEDs sounds petty in comparison to brother Jon’s rap sheet, but performance-enhancers in a sport

  • MLB Trade Rumors: Yankees aggressively shopping Aroldis Chapman

    As the Yankees continue to muddle their way through mediocrity, the team's front office seems to finally be ready to talk about selling. It's hard to imagine a scenario where they are sellers at the deadline, but according to Buster Olney the Yankees have been aggressively exchanging offers with other teams for Aroldis Chapman. Olney specifically mentions the Nationals and the Giants in the discussions, but notes that many other teams are involved as well. We have been hearing about which teams might be interested in Chapman for months now, and given the market for bullpen pieces, it's easy to believe that just about every team in contention is currently looking into acquiring the left-hander.
