  • Jason Kidd: LeBron James did water bottle flip to send a message

  • Dak Prescott's 'America's Team' comment might help you hate the Cowboys again

    The Dallas Cowboys, even at 11-1, don’t seem that unlikable. The Cowboys are always unlikable to some fans no matter their record, but this particular bunch doesn’t seem too bad. Rookie quarterback Dak Prescott is a great story (he even picks up his own trash!), the Cowboys are a true underdog tale since they weren’t expected to do much this season, unassuming Jason Garrett doesn’t grate on anyone’s nerves like Jimmy Johnson did, and it has been a really long time since the Cowboys were good enough to bother anyone.

  • Video: Buff Ronda Rousey Returns To Conan

    Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey returned to the Conan O’Brien show last Wednesday night (Dec. 7, 2016), her first appearance with “Team Coco” since promoting her UFC 184 showdown against Cat Zingano in early 2015. A lot’s changed since then. No longer the 135-pound titleholder, Rousey will try to reclaim her crown in the upcoming UFC 207 pay-per-view (PPV) main event. Waiting for her on Dec. 30, 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada, will be reigning division queenpin Amanda Nunes. But that was just one part of a bigger conversation, one that also touched on “Rowdy’s” Warcraft dates with “Fast & Furious” co-star Vin Diesel, her secret life as a Doomsday

  • Climb Inside This Ferrari FXX K Doing 200 MPH at Daytona

    Last week’s Ferrari Finali Mondiali in Daytona, Florida was notable for quite a few reasons. An uprated version of the LaFerrari’s 6.3-liter naturally-aspirated V-12 and electric motor cranks out a total of 1,036 horsepower, yet the car weighs in several hundred pounds lighter than its 949-hp street-legal cousin.

  • Matt Holliday made sure Yankees can never trade him to one former team

    New York Yankees free-agent signee Matt Holliday has, and though his chosen profession essentially guarantees he’ll return to the city of his apparent disdain temporarily, the negotiating power of his agent has reportedly guaranteed he won’t return there permanently or work for his former employer again. As we learned on Wednesday, Holliday’s one-year, $13M contract with the Yankees reportedly includes one very interesting and unique provision. It’s essentially a one-team no-trade clause that prevents the Yankees from trading Holliday to the Oakland A’s, where he played during the 2009 season.

  • Malik Zaire pens thank-you note to Notre Dame students, staff

    A week after his departure from Notre Dame was revealed Malik Zaire has gotten down to saying goodbye. In a letter to The Observer, the university’s student newspaper, Zaire thanked “the amazing students and staff that I’ve met through the years for helping me grow into the person I’ve always wanted to be.” The notes comes a week after the quarterback was given an unconditional release from his Irish scholarship. My life changed for the better the moment I stepped onto the University of Notre Dame’s beautiful campus.

  • Winter Meetings recap, and what's next for Sandy Alderson's offseason

    It was a newsless Winter Meetings for the Mets, as it was for most teams, but it certainly wasn't quiet. In the end, the Mets held a lot of meetings where they talked with agents and team representatives for a variety of relief pitchers open to accepting major- and minor-league deals. In an effort to free up a roster spot, raise money and have fewer left-handed hitting outfielders, the Mets spent time talking with teams about Jay Bruce, though they reportedly saw more interest in Curtis Granderson and Michael Conforto, which is understandable. In the end, I expect the Mets will eventually trade Bruce and one of two things will happen, 1) They'll get back a big-league reliever making a decent salary, after which they'll use the difference to sign one or two more low-cost relievers, or 2) They'll trade Bruce for nothing, and use his entire $13 million to sign someone like Brad Ziegler, as well as one or two more low-cost relievers.

  • The NBA is reaching a tipping point in the debate over legalized marijuana

    Phil Jackson and Steve Kerr have more in common than the 1990s Chicago Bulls. The legal use of marijuana, whether it be medicinally or recreationally, is gaining steam in the NBA. First, Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr admitted last week to using legally prescribed marijuana during his recovery from a 2015 back surgery, questioning how a league could encourage prescription painkiller use for players healing from injury while listing marijuana among its banned substances.

  • Lexi Thompson Is Playing from the Same Tees as the Men This Week. Let's Not All Freak Out

    Lexi Thompson is the only woman in the Franklin Templeton Shootout field this week, and she'll play the same tees as the men. Touting this event as some kind of tricked-up Battle of the Sexes would be insulting not only to Thompson's ability but also to the caliber of elite female golfers in general. Thompson finished the 2016 LPGA season second in driving distance at 277.40 yards, which was longer than 26 players' driving distance on the PGA Tour in the 2015-16 season.

  • The Giants are about to make Cowboys LB Sean Lee $2 million richer

    What are friends for? The Giants and the Cowboys are storied rivals, but the division foe is about to put one Dallas player in an awesome position. Thanks to a clause written into his contract extension several years ago, Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee stands to earn a huge bonus as early as this week if trends continue. Playing his normal allotment of snaps against the New York Giants in Week 14 will likely earn Lee a $2 million escalator in his 2017 salary, pushing his base up to $9 million. Lee is currently set to be both the highest compensated 4-3 OLB in 2017 in both cash value ($7 million) and salary cap space ($10.45 million). This would expand the gulf even wider, pending 2017 free agency.

  • USGA, R&A create local rule in wake of Dustin Johnson's U.S. Open issues

    Eventual winner Dustin Johnson had his final round and championship put into limbo when his ball moved on the fifth green at Oakmont Country Club. After the walking rules official declared Johnson didn’t cause the ball to move, USGA officials kept looking at the footage. As Johnson was making his back-nine run toward his first major, the USGA informed Johnson that he might — might — be penalized for the ball moving.

  • All-NBA Melo carrying Knicks over the .500 hump

    Tommy Dee | Facebook | Twitter | YouTube | Instagram For as far back as I can remember, great players in New York get treated differently by the media. Because their salaries are public knowledge, players who make the most money are often shouldered with the weight of the franchise as well as lofty and often unrealistic expectations. It was that way with the likes of Patrick Ewing and Alex Rodriguez, and it's been that way with Carmelo Anthony since he was traded here in 2011. I have always chosen to appreciate great players for the sake of the game and, while Anthony has struggled at times on the defensive end, he's been a pleasure to watch on the offensive end most nights. He's had chances

  • Admiral Trolls Kaepernick: Pearl Harbor Dead Never 'Took a Knee'

    The Pearly Harbor dead "never took a knee," Navy Admiral Harry Harris said during a speech marking the 75th anniversary of the surprise attack, an obvious swipe at San Francisco 49ers Quarterback Colin Kaepernick and others who refuse to stand for the national anthem. “You can bet that the men and women we honor today – and those who died that fateful morning 75 years ago – never took a knee and never failed to stand whenever they heard our national anthem being played,” said Harris, according to the New York Post. “Hearing the words, ‘The land of the free and home of the brave’ means something special for every American, every day,” he added. The reference to Kaepernick’s ongoing national anthem protest sparked “a lengthy standing ovation from the crowd, with people whistling and hooting,” noted NBC Sports Pro Football Talk.

  • White Sox finally decide to rebuild after decades in limbo

    For the first time in over 20 years, “rebuild” isn’t a dirty word on the South Side. After decades of half measures, the Chicago White Sox are going all-in, just not in the way many expected. With the trade of All-Star pitcher Chris Sale to the Boston Red Sox, the White Sox are finally embracing what has been evident for a while now: It’s time to start over. The Sale trade seems to indicate that the White Sox are serious about about a complete tear down.
