  • Amar’e Stoudemire: ‘My heart was in two places – Phoenix and New York. I just went where I was wanted’

    Before signing with the Knicks to retire, Amar’e Stoudemire reportedly wanted to sign with the Suns this year and last. He essentially confirmed both accounts. Stoudemire, via Paul Coro of The Arizona Republic: “The last two years, we made phone calls to Phoenix but I wasn’t getting any positive response,” Stoudemire told azcentral sports on Thursday. “That would’ve been the perfect way to go out. I didn’t want to beg Phoenix. My heart was in two places – Phoenix and New York. I just went where I was wanted.” According to the report, Stoudemire wanted to play for Phoenix next season — not just retire as a Sun. If that’s the case, I see why the team passed. The Suns have 15 players (the regular-season

  • Julian Green scores hat trick in Bayern Munich's blowout of Inter Milan

    Julian Green of Bayern Munich celebrates his first goal against Inter Milan. Julian Green has set two goals for himself this preseason: 1) stick with Bayern Munich’s senior team and 2) become a part of the United States men’s national team’s plans again. Green, who burst onto the American soccer scene two years ago by surprisingly earning a spot on Jurgen Klinsmann’s World Cup roster and then scoring a superb extra-time strike against Belgium in the Round of 16, recorded a first-half hat trick during an impressive 28-minute stretch in Bayern’s 4-1 victory at Bank of America Stadium.

  • 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.

  • Report: Januzaj wants to leave Manchester United for good

    Adnan Januzaj wants to leave Old Trafford permanently. The 21-year-old has one club goal since his breakout 2013-14 campaign, when he scored four times in the season that saw him turn 19. It wasn’t long ago that the debate on Januzaj’s stardom was not hyped as if, rather when. Countries were fighting for his international future, and United fans were rankled when he didn’t hit the pitch. Now, it’s a surprise if he factors at all. Januzaj hasn’t played for Belgium since 2014, and made just 12 appearances during a loan stint at Borussia Dortmund last season. The Daily Mail reports that Januzaj has told Jose Mourinho he’s ready to leave Manchester. Sunderland have been tipped as a possible destination

    Sometimes you just need a reminder that a remarkable thing actually is happening. Saturday presented the latest evidence that the NHL coming to Las Vegas isn’t just a collective fever dream, as the still-nameless franchise noted that they’ve begun the process to install ice at T-Mobile Arena for the first time. It’s not the prettiest picture, but it means a lot: While setting up the first sheet of ice is a physical sign that things are coming together, the front office side will dictate the sort of team that eventually plays on it.

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.
