  • Answer a Kevin Durant question? Don’t make Russell Westbrook laugh

    Nice try, but Russell Westbrook’s lips remain sealed. Russell Westbrook has FINALLY broken his silence on Kevin Durant’s decision to leave the Oklahoma City Thunder and join the Golden State Warriors! Well … kind of. Hey, a loud laugh in response to the question, “How you feel about Durant, man?” is noise! That technically means the silence is broken … even if Russ didn’t actually say anything, and if we don’t know for sure whether that laugh means anything more than, “I am 100 percent not going to answer that question.” It counts!

    Conor McGregor took to Twitter to announce his retirement, inciting a wave of speculation that the Diaz rematch slated for July 9 will be his last, or even worse, cancelled. Well, UFC President Dana White just confirmed the latter. The UFC featherweight champion moved to the welterweight category just to fight Diaz, but suffered a stunning loss due to a second round submission. Despite the defeat, the fighter seemed eager to get back into the ring and said on social media, "I stormed in and put it all on the line. I took a shot and missed, I will never apologize for taking a shot. Nate I will see you again." But that won’t be happening. White appeared on ESPN’s SportCenter and said that McGregor

    Jordan Spieth got into some trouble when his drive on the par-4 7th hole missed the fairway and went into a puddle on the cart path during the second round of the PGA Championship. From there he had to figure out how to make a correct drop from casual water on a cart path, and he and a rules official had a lengthy conversation that was broadcast on TNT. The dialogue between Spieth and the official was fascinating—it's amazing how much goes into a simple drop—and frustrating, because it might be things like this that casual golf fan don't have time for, or care for.

    Lionel Messi is awesome. Not only did he cut his vacation short so he could rejoin the Barcelona squad a week earlier to train with his teammates in England and play every friendly match in preseason, he is also using the training sessions  to show just how amazing he is. These are just 140 seconds of greatness. Messi is laughing in the Rondos as he makes his teammates look like fools, he's dribbling Mathieu like he's not even there, and he's even nutmegging his good friend Luis Suárez just because why not. He's also scoring goals on little posts, because every goalpost is big enough for Messi. Just wish Messi was not blonde. But hey, you can't always get what you want. Still, Messi, you're awesome.

  • Report: Clippers exploring leaving Lakers at Staples Center, getting their own arena

    The Clippers don’t just play second fiddle to the Lakers in Los Angeles. They play second fiddle to the Lakers in their own arena. Unless the Clippers want to move from the NBA’s second-biggest market, the former isn’t changing. The Latter? Kevin Arnovitz of ESPN: The Clippers want to escape the Lakers’ shadow. Leaving the Staples Center wouldn’t turn the Clippers into L.A.’s team, but it’d give them a new avenue for attention — and revenue. Of course, if the Clippers stay in the Staples Center, they’ll want the best terms possible. Leaking interest in a new arena only helps their bargaining position.

  • 2016 NFL Preview: Vikings hope to get Adrian Peterson to a Super Bowl

    Shutdown Corner is previewing all 32 teams as we get ready for the NFL season, counting down the teams one per day in reverse order of our initial 2016 power rankings. There are probably two categories of Minnesota Vikings fans: Ones who have convinced themselves that Adrian Peterson is a superhero and will be a Hall of Fame running back forever, and the ones who worry if the rest of the Vikings will peak when Peterson is still in his prime. Back then Peterson was destined to be the NFL’s Ernie Banks and never play for a championship, at least for Minnesota.

    Indiana University, the alma mater of current UCLA coach Steve Alford, has some explaining to do. This morning, the IU basketball Twitter account sent out the following tweet: There’s only one problem with the tweet. Someone at IU forgot to check the facts. We know that Bobby Knight and John Wooden didn’t care for each other. But that doesn’t change the facts. Indiana claimed to be #1 in national titles, Big Ten titles, NCAA Tournament wins and NBA Draft picks. So, I did some fact-checking because, admittedly, I didn’t know off the top of my head how many tournament wins or NBA Draft picks UCLA has had. Well, thanks to the 2015-2016 UCLA Basketball media guide and the NCAA Men's Division I Basketball

    GREEN BAY, Wis. — There is a working theory beneath the surface here, one spoken only in the most hushed of voices, that perhaps the Green Bay Packers really did die that brutal Sunday in Seattle two years ago. Aaron Rodgers will be thrilled when Jordy Nelson comes back. Last season proved to be fool’s gold early — a 6-0 start despite losing Jordy Nelson — once the 5-11 San Francisco 49ers showed the design of how to short circuit the Packers’ once-feared offense: daring the Packers to throw by playing press coverage with a single-high safety.
