  • 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!

  • Chip Ganassi: The real reason Target is leaving IndyCar

    LEXINGTON, Ohio – Team owner Chip Ganassi scoffed Friday at the notion Target is leaving his Verizon IndyCar Series team at season’s end as a result of something happening – or not happening – within the sport. In other words, IndyCar’s low-but-improving television ratings didn’t drive Target out, he said. “It doesn’t say anything about IndyCar racing,” Ganassi said during a break in practice at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. “It doesn’t say anything about (motor sports). It doesn’t say anything about TV ratings. “It’s a business decision that Target made. I don’t think there’s any secret message, hidden agenda or ulterior motive. It’s not a referendum. There’s no sub-story here. “They been

  • Ben Roethlisberger said Martavis Bryant lied to him before suspension

    It should not be breaking news that a player is disappointed in a teammate who has been suspended. Most times when a player is suspended, teammates are asked their thoughts and they go right to the “disappointed but we’re focused on who is on the field” speech that has been heard a million times. However, Friday Ben Roethlisberger went a little farther and had a few interesting quotes when asked about the situation.  As soon as the news broke I kind of asked him what happened. He said some things that were just kind of disappointing. Looking me in my eye and denying everything, it’s tough. It disappoints you as a man and a guy who cared so much about him. I obviously care a lot about him as a

  • 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

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Camp observations, Day 2: New Orleans Saints offense has to go underneath

There were a handful of instances where the quarterbacks were forced to check down after seeing their deeper options were limited, and another few times when quarterback Drew Brees was forced to throw the ball away after seeing his targets disappear. Although it's early and it will take more than two practices to change the fortunes, coach Sean Payton is pleased with the early signs. "From an offensive standpoint, there's a patient element to being productive. You hear that term kind of taking what the defense gives you," Payton said. "The point being is that it's an element to where the

  • Doc Rivers: If Paul Pierce retires, Clippers would let him join Celtics first

    Clippers forward Paul Pierce is mulling retirement, which would mean another franchise icon could leave the NBA this summer — Lakers great Kobe Bryant, Spurs great Tim Duncan and Celtics great Pierce. However, unlike Kobe and Duncan, Pierce left his original team. Personally, I don’t think stints with the Nets, Wizards and Clippers do much to diminish Pierce’s Boston bona fides. Everyone will remember him as a Celtic. Fifteen years and a championship in Boston will do that. But just in case you need more reason to tie Pierce to the Celtics, Clippers president/coach and Pierce’s former Boston coach Doc Rivers has a plan.

    Shutdown Corner is previewing all 32 teams as we get ready for the NFL season, counting down the teams one per day in reverse order of our initial 2016 power rankings. There are probably two categories of Minnesota Vikings fans: Ones who have convinced themselves that Adrian Peterson is a superhero and will be a Hall of Fame running back forever, and the ones who worry if the rest of the Vikings will peak when Peterson is still in his prime. Back then Peterson was destined to be the NFL’s Ernie Banks and never play for a championship, at least for Minnesota.
