Tim Duncan throws down the one-handed slam off the feed from Manu Ginobili.
Only historians will ever be able to properly place Antonio Brown’s Facebook Live video into proper context. Well, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin was the victim of Brown’s odd choice, and now the world knows his secret — he doesn’t like the Patriots, who are the Steelers’ opponent in the AFC Championship Game this Sunday.
The Chargers are leaving San Diego for Los Angeles. As is the case when sports teams relocate, fans are mad. It’s understandable you’re angry and feel betrayed, but this should be a lesson for everyone all over the world — sports teams are nothing more than corporate entities out to take your money.
The Flyers are mercifully on their league-mandated five-day bye week after dropping back-to-back games last weekend by a combined score of 11-3. They need the time off. As the bye week begins, it's time for our weekly check-in on the Flyers’ prospects playing in the AHL, overseas and at the junior and college levels. In this edition, we highlight a 2013 second-round pick whom the Flyers believe is on the brink of reaching the NHL and much more in this week’s Future Flyers Report. Robert Hagg, D, 6-1/191, Lehigh Valley (AHL) Hagg has been an interesting prospect to follow this season, especially considering the down year he had last season in Lehigh Valley and that he often gets lost in the conversation
1 1/16/2017 8:42 AM PST Floyd Mayweather is spitting more venom at Dana White -- calling him a "small boss" who used to carry his bags back in the day. Mayweather went off on the UFC honcho at the Barclays Center this weekend -- once again trashing Dana's $25 MILLION offer to fight Conor McGregor ... this time, he took a stroll down memory lane. "Dana White ... he was a player. He was a boss ... but he was a small boss." "I can remember Dana White used to hang around me and Jeff Mayweather and carry my bags." Mayweather says he used to be cool with White until ... "all the sudden he cut his head bald and he's such a tough guy. He's such a tough guy." Just a few days ago, Dana told TMZ Sports
Morgan Schneiderlin Of course, the reason we’ve reignited this discussion. The Manchester United holding midfielder moved to Everton last week for a fee in the region of £24m and then decided to pick up the number 2 shirt. And Tottenham midfielder Harry
Norwegian strawweight Celine Haga should have won her Invicta FC debut just before the bell rung at the end of the third round Saturday night, but despite rendering opponent Amy Montenegro unconscious with a choke, Haga lost the fight via decision. Seconds before the bell sounded, Haga applied a choke and appeared to have Montenegro knocked out. The referee did not stop the fight, however, and it was ruled that Montenegro became unconscious after the bell - meaning the fight would go to the scorecards. Montenegro earned the victory via a unanimous decision, as all three judges scored the fight 29-28. A number of fighters tweeted in disbelief at the decision. Don't agree with that. If your out
Colts reporter Bob Kravitz revealed that he expects the team's owner Jim Irsay to make a change at either coach and general manager this week. Kravitz reveals potential replacements for both.
It’s been a frustrating season for Jamie Benn of the Dallas Stars. Heading into the Stars’ game at the Buffalo Sabres on Monday afternoon, Benn had tallied one goal since Dec. 15. To put this in terms you’ll better understand: Jamie Benn has one goal since ROGUE ONE premiered.
Back during the Winter Meetings, Orioles general manager Dan Duquette said that the Orioles weren't interested in signing free agent slugger Jose Bautista because "our fans don't like him," but it seems that might not have been 100 percent true. Bautista has been sitting around unsigned for long enough this offseason that he could likely be had at a bargain price by now, so it would be really stupid for the Orioles to totally ignore him, especially based upon the fan base's feelings of a player who used to play on an intra-division rival. You know all those Orioles fans who hate Bautista? Right now the Orioles' designated hitter to start the season would be someone like Trey Mancini or Joey Rickard.
Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin certainly was happy for his team’s win over the Kansas City Chiefs that will advance the Steelers to the AFC championship game on Sunday against the New England Patriots, and he showed it in a Facebook Live video that Steelers receiver Antonio Brown posted on his Facebook page.
Latest Update... Jan. 15 | 4:15 PM The Mets are looking to acquire two prospects in exchange for Jay Bruce, reports CSNPhilly.com's Jim Salisbury. According to Salisbury, the Phillies are interested in Bruce but are wary of dealing their prospects as they rebuild. Previous Updates and Backstory... Bruce is aware of rumors that the Mets may be looking to trade him, which is expected to happen once the team re-signed Yoenis Cespedes, he told NJ.com's Matt Ehalt. "I don't expect anything from anybody. It's a business and they should do what's best for the team," Bruce told Ehalt. "I would love to come back, start fresh and have a full season in New York. I think it would be a blast. It's a great
Wolverines have 11 early enrollees, which could help a team experiencing a massive turnover for 2017 On Jan. 9, Michigan's 11 early enrollees arrived in Ann Arbor and officially started classes as Wolverines. Eleven is an important number, as it's the highest amount of early enrollees the program has ever taken and will likely be the highest number they accept in the foreseeable future. With the program losing many seniors to graduation and a star such as Jabrill Peppers to the draft, a high number of enrollees in January is a huge benefit to the early development of some players who could play right away. Enrolling early also gives each player an extra semester to get acclimated to both the
The cult of Jimmer Fredette was never embraced by the NBA. In China, each launch from beyond the arc gains a believer. The high-scoring college talent out of BYU, whose polarizing game yo-yo’ed him between the NBA to the D-League since being a first-round pick in 2011, has found a niche in the Chinese Basketball Association as himself: an unrepentant bomber. The 27-year-old Fredette, whose love of the 3-pointer and aversion to defense always made him seem more useful in video games than real games, is putting up video-game numbers. He’s averaging 37.3 points a game, the best in the league. (Next up? Former Providence star and Nets flameout MarShon Brooks.) Fredette is shooting 49 percent from
Floyd Mayweather Jr lashed out at the judges after Badou Jack's super-middleweight unification bout with James DeGale ended in a majority draw on Saturday. IBF champion DeGale and WBC belt-holder Jack could not be separated at the Barclays Center, with two of the three judges who were ringside in Brooklyn scoring the contest 113-113, the other having awarded it 114-112 in DeGale's favour. "It's the second time in a row Badou Jack has gotten a bad decision," Mayweather said, referring to a draw against Lucian Bute in April last year.
The 2016 season was a good one for the fabled Wood Brothers Racing team, which ran a full schedule for the first time since 2008. Rookie driver Ryan Blaney showed tremendous potential with a number of strong runs and a solid 20th-place finish in the points. For the 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup season, the team is looking to step it up another notch. To that end, the Wood Brothers have moved from Harrisburg, N.C., near Charlotte Motor Speedway, up to Mooresville, N.C., to be closer to Team Penske, who they have a technical alliance with. In this video, team co-owner Len Wood shows off the new digs for NASCAR's oldest team.
Ashley Wagner and Nathan Chen trained on the same ice for the last three years. They enter this week’s U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Kansas City as favorites, but took different routes to arrive there. Wagner, 25, seeks her fourth national title, following the worst Grand Prix result of her 10-year career. Still, Wagner is the 2016 World Championships silver medalist, which carries the most weight of all with the PyeongChang Olympics coming in 13 months. Wagner, the most accomplished U.S. women’s singles skater in a decade, can become the oldest U.S. women’s singles champion in 90 years. “Mentally, I’m feeling very confident,” Wagner said last week. “At this point in my career it is very
Ever wondered how good today’s PGA Tour stars would be if they used old equipment? Well, thanks to Rickie Fowler and his coach Claude Harmon III, we can get an idea. And here are his stats alongside video of him testing the persimmon driver. As you can see, Rickie’s clubhead speed drops about 3mph with the older clubs — almost certainly because the older model is heavier — and combined with the lack of technology elsewhere on the club, contributes to about a 10 yard loss on his average drives. Though, considering the number below is padded with almost 20 yards of roll, it’s probably a fair estimation that loss would be greater in competition.
When Theo Epstein took over the Cubs’ baseball operations a little more than five years ago, he cautioned everyone within earshot that his rebuilding plan would not follow a linear progression. He couldn’t have known how right he was. Or how little that would have to do with the quality of his baseball decisions and baseball luck. The story of The Plan that Epstein’s front office executed to secure the holy grail of American sports — and secure Epstein’s reservation for a place in the Hall of Fame — has already been told and retold as a tale of baseball genius, scouting acumen and faithful adherence to The Plan that Epstein laid out the day he walked through the door at Clark and Addison. But
Arrowhead Stadium became a hellscape. .@AbbyClopton10 It wasn't! If you look closely in this pic you'll actually see two grills and half a bottle of Jack. Look, they up and left their grills and everything.
The UFC Fight Night: Rodriguez vs. Penn preliminary card has served up what will hold up as one of the most extraordinary results of the year. Heavyweight veteran Oleksiy Oliynyk was fully mounted by Viktor Pesta, and sure enough the fight ended in a tap. Pesta won, right? Wrong. Oliynyk, who entered tonight having won 9 fights this way, recorded the first Ezekiel choke finish in UFC history. I’ve never ever seen anyone get submitted while in full mount. Here’s Eddie Mercado’s play-by-play, accompanied with video of the finish: (Note: It might be geo-restricted for non-US readers) Round 1- Oliynyk presses forward throwing a few overhand rights. A right left combo misses for Oliynyk. Oliynyk presses
If you haven't been completely out of touch with the NFL world since Sunday night, you likely already know that Steelers wideout Antonio Brown live-streamed on Facebook a portion of the team's post-game locker room festivities. Among other things fans saw was Steelers coach Mike Tomlin referring to the Patriots as "a--h----" and noting that they will have an extra day and a half of rest prior to the AFC title game next week. Asked about the video during his weekly radio appearance on Monday, Pats quarterback Tom Brady had this to say, per CSN New England: "That's against our team policy. Saying a video like that "wouldn't go over well" with Bill Belichick is one of the all-time great understatements, but Brady elaborated on how Belichick would feel about it, noting the coach's aversion to technology and social media.
ESPN SportsNation host Michelle Beadle is calling for someone to knock Grayson Allen out? It’s no secret that Duke’s Grayson Allen is probably the most hated college basketball player in America right now. According to Michelle Beadle of ESPN someone needs to do something about this and knock the Blue Devils’ guard out.
Chicago Blackhawks schedule Chicago Blackhawks roster Blackhawks vs Avalanche coverage Mile High Hockey The Blackhawks aren't doing very well. That's obvious. Part of it is the ebb and flow of the regular season, since we've come to expect a team in a sport with long seasons to have the occasional bad streak. But it certainly doesn't help that the Hawks have been having a... difficult stretch in January, to say the least. The Hawks have just come off their worst defeat in 5 years against a red-hot Washington Capitals, and let an equally-hot Minnesota Wild come back to beat them, and take the lead in the Central Division. The hand-wringing has begun. Is this the end of the dynasty???? That's another
For a journeyman such as the 132nd-ranked Polansky -- his average prize money per year entering 2017 was a shade under $70,000 -- pocketing $37,500 gives him breathing room in the next few months, if not longer. "I've never really had to think in my career, 'OK, if I don't win this match, I can't play,'" Polansky told CNN. "It's never been that bad but it's always a bonus when you have these weeks and get a big paycheck and you have some comforts for a few months. "At least you feel like you've earned something as a professional tennis player and as a pro athlete whereas I feel if my ranking was between 200 and 250 the rest of my career, things would be a bit different. Like, 'I've been grinding
