  • Adam Silver doesn't love the 1+1 deals signed by LeBron and Durant

    One of the weirdest things about Kevin Durant’s decision to leave the Oklahoma City Thunder for the Golden State Warriors is that he’s not committed to his new club past the 2016-17 season. Durant signed a two-year deal with Golden State that includes a player option on the second season, and no one believes he’ll actually accept it. LeBron James has signed similar deals with the Cleveland Cavaliers in each of the past two offseasons, and he figures to do the same thing in upcoming weeks in advance of getting his own record-shattering contract next summer.

  • Bubba Watson's caddie unleashed a brutal zinger on a heckler at the PGA

    SPRINGFIELD, N.J. – It wasn’t even noon by the time former U.S. Open champion Justin Rose got to the 18th tee on Saturday at the PGA Championship. He had one of the rounds of the day going, and after another birdie putt fell on 17 to get him to four under, he had one of the largest crowds on the course, too. That’s when things started getting rowdy. Screams rang out from the crowd even after Rose had pulled his club. His caddie stepped in to help the marshals quiet them down. “No cameras, please!” he shouted. “Quiet, please!” he asked a few more times. The did, kind of, but they were still so loud that Rose needed to back off his shot. “You could feel the crowd starting to get more energized,”

  • Julian Green scores hat trick in Bayern Munich's blowout of Inter Milan

    Julian Green of Bayern Munich celebrates his first goal against Inter Milan. Julian Green has set two goals for himself this preseason: 1) stick with Bayern Munich’s senior team and 2) become a part of the United States men’s national team’s plans again. Green, who burst onto the American soccer scene two years ago by surprisingly earning a spot on Jurgen Klinsmann’s World Cup roster and then scoring a superb extra-time strike against Belgium in the Round of 16, recorded a first-half hat trick during an impressive 28-minute stretch in Bayern’s 4-1 victory at Bank of America Stadium.

  • Young Red Sox fan takes a bow after snaring line drive foul ball

    Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia was at the plate in the eighth inning facing Los Angeles Angels reliever Joe Smith. Pedroia sent a line drive foul ball into the stands behind the first-base dugout where a boy raised his mitt and snagged the ball, undoubtedly saving someone in the crowd from either being hit or coming close to a painful experience. The catch was nice enough but what made this moment even better was the crowd giving the young Boston fan a nice ovation and him soaking it in with a bow.

    Don Henderson, the NHL linesman knocked to the ice by Calgary Flames defenseman Dennis Wideman, has undergone neck surgery to repair damage from the hit and there are fears his career may now be over, according to a report in the Boston Globe. According to one of his friends in the officiating business, Henderson’s recent surgery was aimed at repairing two ruptured disks in his neck, the result of the hit. Felled in the second period, he dusted himself off and finished the game the night he was injured. “I know a lot of people are saying stuff like, ‘Hey, Wideman’s not that type of guy . . . that’s not in his nature . . . he’s a good kid,’ ’’ said one of Henderson’s longtime pals in stripes.

As he emerged (and got behind the wheel of a car — which is fine if he wasn’t drinking, anything but fine if he was), Manziel celebrated the return of Josh Gordon with a “YES!” and said the Browns “absolutely” should bring Gordon back. “He’s been a Pro Bowl!” Manziel exclaims to TMZ.

Actually, Juan Cuadrado's not in the picture.  But everyone else is there: Eden "Pirate-look is soooo IN this season" Hazard, Pedro "SOON" Rodriguez, Diego "Jorts" Costa, Branislav "Bad Cop" Ivanović, Thibaut "Shouldn't I be in the back row?"

Media pundits questioned his love for boxing; that it was simply something he happened to be good at – a career. The little brother of renowned trainer Robert Garcia, boxing was in Mikey’s blood. But after two-plus years out of the ring and with no end in sight to his hiatus, many fans wondered whether the graduate of the Ventura County (Calif.) Police Academy truly cared. Of course, Mikey always did. He simply wished to be treated fairly. The former two-division champion was fed up with longtime promoter Top Rank and believed his contract legally expired.

Afterward, the arena was converted into a 50,000-seat baseball park and renamed after the longtime owner of the Braves, Ted Turner. It hosted both the World Series and the All-Star Game during its early years, but the Braves have fallen on hard times and are moving to SunTrust Park in 2017. Georgia State is exploring the possibility of another conversion, which would downsize Turner Field into a 30,000-seat football

The specifics of what role Williams would fill and how much time he could commit have not yet been determined, but sources say San Antonio has opened the door to either a coaching and player-development role or a front-office position
