  • 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.

    It was a day designed to celebrate the greatness of California Chrome, the most popular horse in the world. But amid the euphoria of his stirring stretch duel with Dortmund was the underlying sadness of a sport whose harsh realities have been on display since the opening of the Del Mar meeting a week ago Friday. Chrome delighted the crowd with his half-length victory in the $200,000 San Diego Handicap on  Saturday. 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.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • Rosberg confident he lifted enough during Hungary pole lap

    Nico Rosberg is confident that he slowed down enough to respect the yellow flags during his pole position lap for the Hungarian Grand Prix in qualifying on Saturday. Rosberg edged out Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton to score pole at the Hungaroring by 0.143 seconds, his final lap being completed partly under yellow flags following a spin for Fernando Alonso. Drivers are required to slow under yellows, with those who first came across Alonso’s car being forced to abandon their final flying laps altogether as a result. Alonso had cleared his car by the time Rosberg came to Turn 5, although yellow flags were still being shown, leading to questions about the validity of the German’s time. “For sure

    Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo has previously expressed a desire to coach a game at the legendary Palestra in Philadelphia and it appears he’ll get his chance in a Big Ten game this season. 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. Since the capacity of the Palestra is 8,722, it should make for a fun atmosphere for both programs since this will be a game both fan bases will likely want to attend.

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

  • Report: Celtics re-sign Tyler Zeller for two years, $16 million

    Tyler Zeller is one of the few restricted free agents left on the market who could make an actual impact next season, and on Saturday morning, he’s come off the board. Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald reports that the fourth-year big man has agreed to a deal to stay with the Celtics. It’s for two years and $16 million, with the second season being a team option. Zeller isn’t a starter, but he’s a nice rotation big man, especially at that price. He can play minutes off the bench for Boston, and his contract is also very movable with the second season being unguaranteed. He played just 11.8 minutes per game last season, but averaged 18.5 points and 9 rebounds per 36 minutes.

    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.

    Brian McCann would like to forget Saturday’s loss to the Giants — all four hours and 25 minutes of it. The Yankees’ catcher was behind the plate for all 12 innings in the oppressive heat, and perhaps that factored in to two critical shortcomings in the Yankees’ 2-1 setback to the Giants at the Stadium. McCann failed to drive in the game-winning run with the bases loaded and one out in the 10th, and he was doubled off first base in the eighth, thinking Starlin Castro’s drive would fall in front of left fielder Angel Pagan. McCann also was hitless in his final four at-bats after singling in the first. But it was his time at the plate in the 10th that was the one he regretted. After Aaron Hicks

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Pelicans have not released contract terms.
