Worst of NBA All-Star weekend fashion

A look at some of the more questionable fashion statements being made at the NBA All-Star weekend in Houston, Texas.

  • Report: Yasiel Puig has been claimed on waivers

    Jon Heyman of Today’s Knuckleball reports that Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig has been claimed on waivers by an as-yet unknown team. The Dodgers can now attempt to work out a trade with the claiming team, or simply give that team Puig. In that case, the claiming team would assume the responsibility for the remainder of Puig’s seven-year, $42 million contract, which has two years and $14 million left.

  • Backup running backs with star potential if given the chance

    There is no better position for suddenly creating fantasy stars than running back. Thanks to injury or promotion, a handful of running backs get a shot to start each year. They instantly become fantasy difference-makers who were sitting idly on your roster or the league waiver wire. These are what fantasy dreams are made of. Last year, several vaulted into a starting role and became sleepers, such as Devonta Freeman, Danny Woodhead, DeAngelo Williams and David Johnson — players now in the upper tiers of fantasy running backs. After drafting your starting lineup, there’s no better investment than mining for the next surprise stud. Consider these backs as the best positioned to become “The New

  • Tiki Barber Feels Twitter’s Wrath After Voicing Opinion On Colin Kaepernick

    Several people have been weighing in on San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s protest regarding standing during the National Anthem at football games, and now, former NFL star Tiki Barber is voicing his opinion. The former running back, who hosts his own CBS Sports radio show Tiki and Tierney with Brandon Tierney, checked into CBS This Morning on Monday (Aug. 29), to discuss the controversy surrounding Kaepernick. According to Barber, Kaepernick has the right idea when it comes to “continuing the narrative” about the unjust history of blacks in America, however, he believes he should still be standing for the anthem.

  • Shaq and Jason Williams' sons showed off their hoop skills at Shaq's house

Home Team Hoops was there at Shaq’s house to put together a video of the session. Shareef got in some monster dunks on Jaxon, and Jaxon pulled some moves as slick as his dad’s on Shareef. All four of the players were smiling throughout the video — four talented ballplayers in one gym is fun!

  • ESPN ranks Islanders' system seventh in the league

    The Islanders' system still ranks in the upper echelon of NHL, according to ESPN. Corey Pronman took a look at all 30 teams' systems and ranked the Isles seventh, down two spots from a year ago. "The Isles have been somewhat patient with their young players in recent seasons, exemplified by the fact that none of their top 10 prospects from last summer graduated," Pronman writes. "The group is led by skilled forwards Mathew Barzal, the No. 16 overall pick from 2015, Anthony Beauvillier (No. 28, 2015) and Kieffer Bellows (No. 19, 2016)." The Islanders have used their last five first-round selections on forwards. I like that the Isles have been patient -- some would say overly patient -- with their

  • Carlos Beltran's miraculous hair growth inspires Rangers in win

    With a little over a month to go in the regular season, the Texas Rangers have put themselves in exceptional shape to compete for a World Series title. At 77-54, the club holds an 8.5 game lead in the American League West, and midseason additions of Jonathan Lucroy and Carlos Beltran have strengthened an already solid lineup. The benefit of bringing in a 19-year veteran like Beltran is that he can find a way to inspire his teammates even when he’s not in the lineup.

  • Thank You, Colin Kaepernick

    On Friday, Colin Kaepernick took a stand against racism and systemic oppression – by sitting. Following in the footsteps of a number of athletes, musicians and other public figures using their stardom to draw attention to the ongoing race based violence and discrimination in the United States, Kaepernick sat while the National Anthem played before Friday night’s game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Green Bay Packers. With this silent, nonviolent protest against the violence and discrimination against black people in the United States – Kaepernick simultaneously enraged Racist America, disappointed Progressive America and validated the rest of us fighting against oppression in the United States.

  • The Incoming Class Of NBA Rookies Isn't Very High On No. 1 Pick Ben Simmons

    The incoming class of NBA rookies has the potential to be one of the more intriguing groups in a while, with athletic projects like Marquese Chriss and Thon Maker entering the league alongside guys like Kris Dunn and Buddy Hield, who could be ready-made veterans. For years, the NBA has given rookies a survey on questions like this, to see if being one of the youngsters gives them any more insight. If you believe those sorts of things are somehow prescient, then Ben Simmons might be a disappointment.

  • Kevin Owens crowned new WWE Universal Champion, Triple H returns on Raw

    HOUSTON, Aug. 30 (UPI) -- KO-Mania has officially begun as Kevin Owens became the new WWE Universal Champion on Raw thanks to the actions of a returning Triple H. Owens earned the new Raw-branded championship after facing off against Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and Big Cass in a Fatal 4-Way Elimination Match Monday that was made after Finn Balor was forced to relinquish the title due to injury following SummerSlam. After Big Cass was eliminated, Reigns seemed to have everything under control as he continued to punish both Rollins and Owens, but the match took a surprising turn when seemingly out of nowhere, WWE COO Triple H intervened and laid out The Big Dog with a pedigree outside the ring.

Quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s decision not to stand during the national anthem prior to the San Francisco 49ers’ first three preseason games seems to have prompted everyone to voice his or her opinion about the former Nevada quarterback’s protest, including his former college coach. Chris Ault, a Hall of Fame coach who spent four years with Kaepernick at Nevada, penned a letter to the Reno Gazette-Journal on Monday expressing his dismay in Kaepernick’s actions.

  • Jamal Crawford tricked defender with a sweet fake behind-the-back crossover

    Jamal Crawford went crazy at the Seattle Pro-Am again. The 36-year-old NBA vet sent one defender flying to the floor, and he made another angry as he shook him with a fake behind-the-back crossover. Ballislife shared clips of the two slick moves. Here’s the behind-the-back fake. It appears that the guy on defense was convinced Crawford carried the ball over or did something illegal. It looked fine to me — in fact, it looked awesome. They don’t call him J. Crossover for nothing. Here’s the stop and fake that sent a defender sliding. Notice how Crawford looks back at the man on the floor, pulls up for a jumper, then gets the and-one. It’s too easy. If you still want to see more highlights, you’re

    J. R. Smith continues to have the best summer ever. After playing a huge role in the Cavaliers’ upset of the Golden State Warriors (who blew a 3-1 lead, by the way), J.R. refused to wear a shirt for what felt like weeks. He turned his shirtlessness into money. And all signs point to him getting a lucrative deal from the Cleveland Cavaliers. Throw in the fact that he got married this off-season, and it's clear that it's a good time to be J. R. Smith. It seemed like things couldn't possibly get better, but then J.R. went and made an announcement on Uninterrupted.
