  • 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.

  • Why was Kevin Harvick so angry after New Hampshire? It wasn’t because of his pit crew . . .

    Kevin Harvick was seething at his team after Sunday’s race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, where his No. 4 Chevrolet lost 14 positions on pit stops. “Nothing said after the race had anything to do with the weekend or anything on our pit stops,” Harvick told NBC Sports in a Thursday interview. Crew chief Rodney Childers said Harvick’s frustration after New Hampshire stemmed for a disastrous test for Harvick’s car last week at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Because of an assembly problem at the Stewart-Haas Racing shop, a faulty wire in the fuel cell caused the car’s electronics to go haywire when the crew attempted to start it at Indy, and the team lost three precious hours while painstakingly troubleshooting the problem.

  • USWNT cruises past Costa Rica in final pre-Olympic warm up

    The U.S. Women’s National Team wasn’t really lacking confidence heading into Friday night’s clash with Costa Rica, but the squad’s utter dominance certainly didn’t hurt things as Jill Ellis’ group gets ready to head to Brazil for next month’s Olympic Games. The USWNT captured a 4-0 win against Costa Rica in the side’s final send-off match before the Olympics, extending the no. 1 ranked team in the world’s unbeaten streak to 15 matches. It only took a quarter of an hour the USWNT to find the lead, but it always looked like it was coming for Jill Ellis’ group. Meghan Klingenburg made a great run deep into the Costa Rica area, and played a perfect square pass across the face of goal for Crystal

  • Rosberg called before stewards over Hungary pole lap

    Nico Rosberg has been called to see the FIA race stewards over his pole position lap during qualifying for the Hungarian Grand Prix on Saturday. Rosberg’s final Q3 lap saw him edge out Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton for pole position by 0.143 seconds, but was partially completed under double-waved yellow flags shown following a spin for Fernando Alonso. Rosberg was adamant after the session that he lifted enough, and the stewards did not initially investigate it. However, over three-and-a-half hours after qualifying was completed, Rosberg has now been called in over a possible failure to slow for yellow flags during his Q3 lap. Rosberg will meet with the stewards at 19:45 local time in Hungary

    On July 2, cyclists from around the world began the 103rd Tour de France, the prestigious three-week stage race — or "grand tour" — that is also the world's largest annual sporting event. Each day participants ride, on average, about 100 miles and burn some 6,071 calories, according to Inside Science, a science news site run by the American Institute of Physics. To give you a better idea of just how many calories that is, we've teamed up with the folks at Inside Science, which originally calculated how many jelly donuts you'd have to eat to generate enough energy to keep up with a Tour de France cyclist on race day.

It was the first race for the 5-year-old Cal-bred since winning the $10 million Dubai World Cup, which made him the all-time winningest horse in North America.

According to a report from Brendan F. Quinn of MLive, Penn State will use the Palestra as its home gym for the Jan. 7, 2017 Big Ten game against Michigan State. It is the only time the two teams are scheduled to play during Big Ten season and Penn’s home gym will offer a unique setting for the game.

  • Report: Las Vegas NHL team asked permission to speak with Capitals assistant GM

    It’s been 10 days since George McPhee was officially announced as general manager of the expansion Las Vegas franchise. Based on a report Friday, it appears he’s looking to possibly add a familiar face from the Washington Capitals to his staff. Building a front office beyond his position is among the top priorities on his list of things to get done, as that franchise prepares for key dates like next year’s expansion draft. There is a long history between McPhee and Mahoney from their days with Washington. Ross Mahoney was hired by McPhee to be the director of amateur scouting for the Caps which he did for 16 seasons before becoming assistant general manager. If you thought the team drafted well

But aside from everything that will seem new for Jeff Gordon about ending an eighth-month retirement this weekend, there is one comforting element. “I knew it was Indianapolis,” he said Friday morning. “I felt like if there was one place that I was capable of doing it, it would be here.” Gordon will start the next two races in place of Dale Earnhardt Jr., who is recovering from concussion-like symptoms.

  • Which NHL goal scorers were luckiest this season? (Trending Topics)

    A shot from Alex Ovechkin from x location in a high-danger area has a greater chance of going in than one from Zac Rinaldo or even Lee Stempniak. With this in mind, we can reasonably extrapolate that guys like Patrick Kane, who led the league in points and finished second in goals only behind Ovechkin are generally going to appear to be more “lucky” than the average NHLer when their stats are viewed without context. What that basically means is that Kane had a shooting percentage of 16 percent in all situations last year, nearly doubling the NHL average of 8.5 percent.

  • Eberle: ‘We haven’t made the playoffs … and something needed to change’

    The P.K. Subban for Shea Weber trade between the Montreal Canadiens and Nashville Predators continues to make waves. On that same late-June day, however, the Edmonton Oilers shocked the hockey world by sending Taylor Hall, who four times in his young career has hit the 20-goal plateau, to New Jersey for right-shot defenseman Adam Larsson, who isn’t likely to be mistaken for a dynamic offensive blue liner. In trading Hall, the Oilers gave up a dynamic forward, although they certainly had a plethora of skilled forwards, and their need to make upgrades to their blue line, made it necessary to part with a player up front. Hall and Jordan Eberle — now his former Oilers teammate — broke into the league with Edmonton in the same year, back in 2010-11.

    At the outset, it’s worth noting that Phillies manager Pete Mackanin is not saying that Cole Hamels is not good or that he’s not good enough to be a team’s number one starter. No, Mackanin was speaking about pitching in general and premised his comments by saying that there are probably fewer than ten “solid 1s” in all of baseball by his definition. When he’s talking about aces he means “the elite of the elite” not merely “a team’s number one starter.” Still, these are interesting comments he had about former Phillies starter Cole Hamels: “I don’t know if I’d call him a No. 1. He might be a No. 2. Those guys are elite. And I love Cole Hamels, don’t get me wrong. It’s debatable.” Hamels may not
