  • Jordan Spieth at Center of Latest Major Rules Controversy

    Jordan Spieth shot a solid second-round 67 at the 98th PGA Championship at hot Baltusrol on Friday, but all anyone wanted to talk about afterward was a puddle on the gravel path to the right of the seventh fairway, and whether Spieth was stepping in it. "It was no problem," Spieth told reporters afterward. The trouble began when Spieth missed the seventh fairway, on his 16th hole of the day, wide right.

  • Answer a Kevin Durant question? Don’t make Russell Westbrook laugh

    Nice try, but Russell Westbrook’s lips remain sealed. Russell Westbrook has FINALLY broken his silence on Kevin Durant’s decision to leave the Oklahoma City Thunder and join the Golden State Warriors! Well … kind of. Hey, a loud laugh in response to the question, “How you feel about Durant, man?” is noise! That technically means the silence is broken … even if Russ didn’t actually say anything, and if we don’t know for sure whether that laugh means anything more than, “I am 100 percent not going to answer that question.” It counts!

  • 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

  • Watch Broncos' Jordan Taylor make Odell Beckham-esque catch (Video)

    Admit it: That’s about as close to the original Odell Beckham Jr. catch as one can get. The fact that Taylor opened up his body to the inside down the right sideline and then catch the darned thing with his inside (right) hand is pretty wild. Of course, Beckham also had to have his own crazy play a few times zones east of there.

  • Report: Clippers exploring leaving Lakers at Staples Center, getting their own arena

    The Clippers don’t just play second fiddle to the Lakers in Los Angeles. They play second fiddle to the Lakers in their own arena. Unless the Clippers want to move from the NBA’s second-biggest market, the former isn’t changing. The Latter? Kevin Arnovitz of ESPN: The Clippers want to escape the Lakers’ shadow. Leaving the Staples Center wouldn’t turn the Clippers into L.A.’s team, but it’d give them a new avenue for attention — and revenue. Of course, if the Clippers stay in the Staples Center, they’ll want the best terms possible. Leaking interest in a new arena only helps their bargaining position.

  • This video of Lionel Messi in training is just glorious (Luis Suárez nutmeg included)

    Lionel Messi is awesome. Not only did he cut his vacation short so he could rejoin the Barcelona squad a week earlier to train with his teammates in England and play every friendly match in preseason, he is also using the training sessions  to show just how amazing he is. These are just 140 seconds of greatness. Messi is laughing in the Rondos as he makes his teammates look like fools, he's dribbling Mathieu like he's not even there, and he's even nutmegging his good friend Luis Suárez just because why not. He's also scoring goals on little posts, because every goalpost is big enough for Messi. Just wish Messi was not blonde. But hey, you can't always get what you want. Still, Messi, you're awesome.

    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.

    Jordan Spieth got into some trouble when his drive on the par-4 7th hole missed the fairway and went into a puddle on the cart path during the second round of the PGA Championship. From there he had to figure out how to make a correct drop from casual water on a cart path, and he and a rules official had a lengthy conversation that was broadcast on TNT. The dialogue between Spieth and the official was fascinating—it's amazing how much goes into a simple drop—and frustrating, because it might be things like this that casual golf fan don't have time for, or care for.

    In 2005, my friends and I took great interest in a McSweeney’s article titled “A Realistic Assessment of How Many 12-Year-Olds I Could Beat Up Before They Overtook Me.” It is exactly what it sounds like — author Matt Schweiger investigates how he, a 21-year-old of fairly average size, would do in a fight against an ever-growing number of pre-teen boys. Minnesota Timberwolves center and reigning Rookie of the Year Karl-Anthony Towns is apparently trying to test his own version of this game. Honestly, they should just turn the camp into a full-on experiment to see how many kids Towns can take on.

Kane was arrested late last week for allegedly harassing three women, and potentially choking and pulling the hair of one of them.

According to Heinicke, he came home to his Atlanta home a couple weeks ago after a late night showing of The Conjuring 2 — which he called “pretty good” — to find his house locked and no one home.
