  • Jayson Williams calls himself 'a coward' for his role in his limo driver's 2002 shooting, coverup

    It has nearly been 15 years since Costas “Gus” Christofi, a limousine driver working to shepherd former NBA All-Star Jayson Williams and his litany of friends around for a wild night out, was accidentally shot to death in Williams’ New Jersey estate. After a series of deadlocked juries and retrials Williams later pled guilty to aggravated assault in the rifle death in 2010, and the former Nets center was found guilty on four counts of attempting to cover up his role in Christofi’s death. Williams, free since 2012 and working with an alcohol problem prior to Christofi’s death, is clearly still working through the aftermath after all but abandoning the post-NBA career that seemed so expertly laid out for him.

  • Trial Starts for Suspect in Ex-NFL Star Will Smith's Murder While Alleged Shooter of Ex-Player Joe McKnight Is Free

    Two former NFL players have been gunned down in separate, apparent road-rage incidents in the New Orleans area this year: former New Orleans Saints player Will Smith in April, and former New York Jets and the Kansas City Chiefs player Joe McKnight less than a week ago, on Dec. 1. While McKnight's family mourns his shocking death and the man suspected of shooting him remains free without charges while the investigation continues, the trial for Smith's accused killer gets underway today. Smith, who was 34 when he died, was drafted by the Saints in 2004 and spent all nine of his NFL seasons with the team.

  • World-Record Ferrari Attempt Falls Short

    The hoped-for Guinness record for the number of Ferraris in a parade that the organizers of the 2016 Finali Mondiali at Daytona International Speedway fell a bit short – 155 Ferraris short, to be precise. At the Ferrari Race Day at Silverstone in 2012, Ferrari F1 driver Felipe Massa led a parade of 964 Ferraris, upping the world record set in Japan of 490 cars, which upped the record set at Silverstone in 2007 of 385 cars. The parade at Daytona managed 809 Ferraris, which, while not a record, is still a bunch of Ferraris.

  • Report: Phillies might be willing to trade Odubel Herrera

    The Rangers are looking for an upgrade in the outfield. As such, the club has discussed speedy center fielder Billy Hamilton with the Reds, per MLB.com’s T.R. Sullivan. Sullivan adds that the still-rebuilding Phillies might be willing to trade center fielder Odubel Herrera which would create a match with the Rangers. Herrera, soon to be 25 years old, was originally signed in the summer of 2008 as an amateur free agent by the Rangers. The Phillies selected him from the Rangers in the Rule-5 draft two winters ago. Herrera had an outstanding rookie campaign in 2015, batting .297/.344/.418 in 537 plate appearances. He was able to maintain that production in 2016, finishing with a .286/.361/.420 triple-slash

    Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard J.R. Smith left the team’s Monday night meeting with the conference rival Toronto Raptors after suffering a scary left knee injury that left the veteran sharpshooter in evident agony on the court at the Air Canada Centre. Smith drove around Raptors defender DeMar DeRozan into the paint, then raised up to loft a floater over the outstretched arms of center Jonas Valanciunas. The ball softly splashed through the net for two points, but as it was doing so, Smith was landing awkwardly on the baseline, jamming his left foot into the ground in a halting step that stopped his momentum and immediately sent him to his knees on the court.

  • The Red Sox’ DH search now includes Pedro Alvarez

    The Red Sox have more or less withdrawn from the Edwin Encarnacion sweepstakes, with Evan Drellich of the Boston Herald noting that much of their reluctance hinges on the likelihood that they’d exceed the new $195 million luxury tax threshold by locking the DH into a lucrative deal. That doesn’t leave them without options, however, and FanRag Sports’ Jon Heyman reported that the club could be interested in 29-year-old corner infielder Pedro Alvarez, as well as fellow free agents Mike Napoli and Matt Holliday. After playing just 10 games at DH from 2010 to 2015, Alvarez suited up as the Orioles’ primary designated hitter and part-time third baseman in 2016. His defense is sub-par, to say the least,
