  • Aaron Rodgers reveals the true meaning of Peyton Manning's 'Omaha' call

The latest round of rumors came a couple of weeks back courtesy of ESPN.com’s Marc Stein, who reported that the Sacramento Kings “are actively seeking to move Gay as well as big man Kosta Koufos and guard Ben McLemore” as they look to shuffle up their roster in pursuit of better results — like, say, a .500 record and outside shot at the West’s No. 8 seed — for what feels like the umpteenth year in a row.

    Matt Kenseth was in position to win his first race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Sunday afternoon, but he couldn’t keep up with teammate Kyle Busch. As Busch drove away to his second consecutive Brickyard win, it was Kenseth who followed him across the finish line. Although Joe Gibbs Racing had brought a fleet of fast cars, Kenseth was unable to overtake Busch for the race lead. “It didn’t seem like it,” Kenseth said of whether he had anything for Busch. “We never got in front of him all day, and the clean air is always really big here.” Sunday was the third time in 17 Indianapolis starts that Kenseth finished second.

    In the days leading up to the July 15 deadline for teams to sign their designated franchise players, the Kansas City Chiefs and safety Eric Berry were reportedly “miles apart” on a deal. Since Berry has not signed his franchise tag, and is therefore not under contract, he cannot be fined by the club. Berry’s recent battle with Hodgkin’s disease played a role in negotiations, with NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reporting that the Chiefs wanted Berry to pay for a disability insurance policy that would have named the team as beneficiary.

  • Heat guard had an amazing, gross reaction to $50M contract offer

    A great many sports fans, whether die-hard NBA followers or casual observers, experienced pretty serious sticker shock during the opening days of free agency, as players who aren’t exactly household names (well, outside of Russia) started signing deals eight-figure deals that dwarf the top paydays of some of the greatest NBA players of even the very recent past. Nets general manager Sean Marks made the lucrative offer, which included “poison-pill” guarantees of $18.8 million and $19.6 million in the final two years of the deal, in hopes that the Heat — who picked up the undrafted Fresno State product in the summer of 2014, added him to their D-League affiliate, the Sioux Falls Skyforce, and helped develop him into a versatile young backcourt piece for the senior club — would be too cap-strapped down the line after maxing out center Hassan Whiteside, and too wrapped up with their pursuit of top free agent Kevin Durant and attempts to re-sign franchise legend Dwyane Wade, to exercise their rights in restricted free agency and match the offer sheet.

The Ferrari driver missed Q3 for the first time all season but atoned nicely in the race at a track where passing is usually at a premium. Raikkonen’s battle with Red Bull Racing’s Max Verstappen was one of the race highlights, the Dutchman defending aggressively – perhaps too much so – against Raikkonen’s advances. But with no penalty assessed and no warning issued, Verstappen ended ahead in the battle for fifth. “I think it was very questionable, but it’s not my decision to decide,”

This is the same water in which Olympians will sail, windsurf and -- yes -- swim starting on Aug. 5.
