  • Adam Silver doesn't love the 1+1 deals signed by LeBron and Durant

    One of the weirdest things about Kevin Durant’s decision to leave the Oklahoma City Thunder for the Golden State Warriors is that he’s not committed to his new club past the 2016-17 season. Durant signed a two-year deal with Golden State that includes a player option on the second season, and no one believes he’ll actually accept it. LeBron James has signed similar deals with the Cleveland Cavaliers in each of the past two offseasons, and he figures to do the same thing in upcoming weeks in advance of getting his own record-shattering contract next summer.

  • Report: NHL linesman Henderson required neck surgery, friends fear his career may be over

    Don Henderson, the NHL linesman knocked to the ice by Calgary Flames defenseman Dennis Wideman, has undergone neck surgery to repair damage from the hit and there are fears his career may now be over, according to a report in the Boston Globe. According to one of his friends in the officiating business, Henderson’s recent surgery was aimed at repairing two ruptured disks in his neck, the result of the hit. Felled in the second period, he dusted himself off and finished the game the night he was injured. “I know a lot of people are saying stuff like, ‘Hey, Wideman’s not that type of guy . . . that’s not in his nature . . . he’s a good kid,’ ’’ said one of Henderson’s longtime pals in stripes.

  • Bubba Watson's caddie unleashed a brutal zinger on a heckler at the PGA

    SPRINGFIELD, N.J. – It wasn’t even noon by the time former U.S. Open champion Justin Rose got to the 18th tee on Saturday at the PGA Championship. He had one of the rounds of the day going, and after another birdie putt fell on 17 to get him to four under, he had one of the largest crowds on the course, too. That’s when things started getting rowdy. Screams rang out from the crowd even after Rose had pulled his club. His caddie stepped in to help the marshals quiet them down. “No cameras, please!” he shouted. “Quiet, please!” he asked a few more times. The did, kind of, but they were still so loud that Rose needed to back off his shot. “You could feel the crowd starting to get more energized,”

  • Cubs fan will donate to domestic-violence charity for each Aroldis Chapman save

    The acquisition of bazooka-armed reliever Aroldis Chapman wasn’t exactly greeted with glee by Chicago Cubs fans because of the pitcher’s offseason domestic violence incident. While Cubs fans are desperate for their team to finally end its 108-year-old streak without a World Series title, some aren’t desperate enough that they feel comfortable adding a player to the roster who was accused of domestic violence before prosecutors ultimately decided not to file charges. Lifelong Cubs fan Caitlin Swieca decided to do something positive to help herself cope with the disappointment she felt in her beloved team.

  • Manziel, back in the clubs, says he’ll play for the Cowboys

    Football has moved on without Johnny Football. But Johnny Football still hasn’t moved on from football. Capping a month that supposedly began with a vow of sobriety, Johnny Manziel was back in a club on Friday night. As he emerged (and got behind the wheel of a car — which is fine if he wasn’t drinking, anything but fine if he was), Manziel celebrated the return of Josh Gordon with a “YES!” and said the Browns “absolutely” should bring Gordon back. “He’s been a Pro Bowl!” Manziel exclaims to TMZ. Manziel then said he’s “absolutely” returning to the NFL and that he’ll play for the Cowboys. That could be news to the Cowboys, who reportedly have zero interest in Manziel unless and until he turns

  • Did NHL teams suck fun out of 3-on-3 OT? (Trending Topics)

    A little more than a year ago, the NHL announced that it had officially adopted a 3-on-3 overtime as a means of juicing goal-scoring in the league and avoiding the shootout to as great an extent as possible. At the time, we had little understanding of what the NHL looked like at 3-on-3. From 2007 through the end of 2014-15, all NHL teams combined had played a grand combined total of just 87 minutes in that strength situation.

It happens a lot at majors, and even more so towards the end of the day, when fans are a few drinks deep. Exhibit A Exhibit B Exhibit C It happened again on Friday at the PGA Championship.

  • NFL conditionally reinstates Dolphins' Dion Jordan

According to the announcement from the NFL, Jordan can join the Dolphins at training camp, allowed to participate in “meetings, conditioning work and similar activities.” He must also secure treatment in the Miami area, and after he’s done that he will be able to play in preseason games. The NFL will re-evaluate Jordan’s case at the start of the regular season, and after meeting with him will determine whether he’s been complying with the conditions of his reinstatement, he will be allowed to participate in regular-season activities.

  • The Yankees need to move on from Aaron Hicks

    A lot of focus this season has been around the sputtering Yankees offense, particularly the drastic decline of Alex Rodriguez and Mark Teixeira, who before the season began were the Yankees expected source of power. The expectations for outfielder and newcomer Aaron Hicks were much more modest than those of Teixeira and Rodriguez, but contribution was expected from the former first round pick, still in his mid twenties, and acquired in the off-season for John Ryan Murphy, who provided a solid backup to Brian McCann behind the plate last season. A great season from Austin Romine has helped fans forget about Murphy’s absence, but it is hard to turn a shoulder to the black hole in the Yankees lineup that took Murphy’s place on the roster (even while Murphy has struggled himself.
