  • Gerard Gallant says post-firing taxi photos 'blown out of proportion'

    Former Florida Panthers coach Gerard Gallant said the reason he took a taxi after his Sunday firing was because he didn’t want to wait for a car service that the team had called. Gallant spoke with Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman and said the situation, which went viral after photos of him waiting at the PNC Arena loading dock surfaced, wasn’t as bad as it looked. “I know everyone has seen the photos of me getting into the cab,” Gallant said via Friedman.

  • The very manly Charles Barkley still doesn't like that the Warriors play 'girly basketball'

    Charles Barkley lets us know. At this point, Charles Barkley’s distaste for the Golden State Warriors’ brand of basketball is well-established. Barkley doubled down on that stance this past summer after the Cleveland Cavaliers knocked off the Dubs in their 2016 Finals rematch, this time dinging Golden State — now featuring “cheater” Kevin Durant — for playing “little girly basketball” in a very sober, serious and restrained debate that took place at a nightclub inside a Lake Tahoe casino against Jerry Rice.

  • NBA: Lakers should’ve been call for committing late shooting foul on Jimmy Butler in win over Bulls

    Dwyane Wade insisted there were no excuses for the Bulls’ “ugly” loss to the Lakers on Wednesday. But here’s one: A key missed shooting foul down the stretch. Lakers forward Brandon Ingram should’ve been whistled for committing a shooting foul on Jimmy Butler with 1:09 left, according to the Last Two Minute Report: Ingram (LAL) makes contact with Butler (CHI) that affects his drive to the basket and shot attempt. A correct call would’ve sent Butler – who’s making 89% of his free throws this season and 82% in his career – to the line for two attempts. Instead, the Lakers grabbed the defensive rebound and pushed their lead to three, leaving Butler to miss a forced a 3-pointer with 16 seconds left.

    Well this sure is a bit of news I wasn’t expecting to read this morning. We are all aware of Arsene Wenger’s contract status, and I’m not going to rehash the “should he stay or should he go” argument, because we all know where we all stand on that. It does appear that Arsenal are planning for the day that Wenger does go, though, and in that planning they have reached out to a name on probably nobody’s list, Red Bull Leipzig manager Ralph Hasenhuttl. According to reports, this wasn’t so much a formal “we want to interview him” as much as an informal “hey man how’s it going what’s happening oh by the way how would you like London if you had to live there”, but still, contact was made and that contact
