  • Huge If True: Will Canucks take on Evander Kane?

    Last week in this space, we discussed whether the Vancouver Canucks would be able to trade for a scoring winger. At the time, though, the idea that Evander Kane would be the target was a little farfetched. Kane was arrested late last week for allegedly harassing three women, and potentially choking and pulling the hair of one of them.

  • One NBA team is already preparing for an ugly Stephen Curry-Kevin Durant divorce

    Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant have played exactly zero minutes together as Golden State Warriors teammates, so we have no real idea how the two will work together. The rest of the NBA, meanwhile, is hoping that things go south, and one of them is actively planning on it. “There are 29 teams hoping the chemistry between Kevin Durant and Steph Curry is poisonous, but there is one team that is planning for it. It’s probably a fool’s errand to guess the name of the “title contender” here, but we can probably narrow it down to a handful of teams: The Cavaliers, Clippers and Spurs, plus maybe the Raptors or Thunder, and if you get expansive with your definition you could probably throw in the league’s 48-34 foursome (Celtics, Heat, Hawks and Hornets, who all finished with the same regular season record).

  • Yankees are fully committed to Alex Rodriguez disaster

    The Yankees, 6 ½ games off the pace in a crowded AL East field, still harbor belief they are a winning streak away from pulling tight and wouldn’t be embarrassed if their entrance to October is through one of the two AL wild-card doors for a second consecutive season. The Yankees were four lengths back of the Red Sox for the second wild-card ticket Thursday when they were off in front of a three-game series against the moribund Rays starting Friday at Tropicana Field. Hal Steinbrenner’s belief that those dreams can come true are bolstered by the recent play of his club that took three of four from the AL Central-leading Indians before the All-Star break and the AL East-leading Orioles after the break. In addition, the 52-49 Yankees copped two of three from the NL West-leading, if not sliding, Giants and two of three from the Astros, who are in the hunt for the AL West lead.

  • Bill Belichick leaves no doubt: Tom Brady will be Patriots' starter after suspension

    Tom Brady announced almost two weeks ago that he was giving up his fight, and would end pursuit of exoneration in Deflate-gate: The Saga, meaning he’d be suspended for the first four games of this season. Which means the New England Patriots know that third-year backup Jimmy Garoppolo will be starting those games, and he must get more first-team reps during training camp than he normally does. Garoppolo, a second-round pick out of Eastern Illinois who has just 31 attempts in his first two seasons, will be at the helm for a not-too-easy quartet of games to open the season: at Arizona, then home against the Miami Dolphins, Houston Texans and Buffalo Bills.

    The Heat signed Dion Waiters to a room-exception contract. Heat president Pat Riley, via Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald: “Dion is not a Room Exception player. He wanted to play for the Miami Heat and chose to forgo other more lucrative financial opportunities to be a part of our championship organization. We are very honored that he made the commitment to come to South Florida and sign with us. Dion is young, athletic and explosive, which fits in with our roster. He will add a great dimension for us at the off-guard spot. I really like the depth and versatility that we now have in our perimeter positions. Welcome aboard Dion!” I’m really curious about those “more lucrative financial opportunities.”

  • Detroit Tigers add much-needed component of physical pain to 'Rock, Paper, Scissors' contest

    For too long, the game “Rock, Paper, Scissors” has been relegated to the realm of the trivial, used more often to determine mundane obligations like who’s going to walk to the store to buy more beer than meaningful outcomes like who’s going to get wailed over the head with an empty water jug. Luckily, the Detroit Tigers have set out to right this wrong: From Justin Verlander’s Instagram comes evidence of the Tigers’ high-stakes version of “Rock, Paper, Scissors.” In the above video, second baseman Ian Kinsler throws scissors while shortstop Jose Iglesias throws paper, and because scissors cut paper, Kinsler gets to wallop Iglesias on the head with the water jug. Kinsler, of course, is an excellent

The Knicks added Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah — two former Bulls — to join Anthony, who strongly considered Chicago in his last free agency. The Bulls answered with a couple big names: Dwyane Wade and Rajon Rondo.

    Five Sprint Cup teams were given warnings Wednesday for inspection failures last weekend at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. For failing the laser inspection station twice in prerace, NASCAR warned the No. 5 Chevrolet of Kasey Kahne, the No. 27 Chevrolet of Paul Menard and the No. 83 Toyota of Matt DiBenedetto. It’s the fourth warning this season for DiBenedetto’s car, which means the team would lose pit selection for Sunday’s race at Pocono Raceway. It’s the first warning for Kahne and third for Menard. NASCAR also issued warnings because the No. 41 Chevrolet of Kurt Busch and the No. 43 Ford of Aric Almirola failed template inspection twice before qualifying. It’s the second warning for both teams.
