The Heat's Chris Bosh has been fined $5,000 for violating the league's anti-flopping rules during Game 4 of the NBA Finals.
Olivia Munn is stirring the pot when it comes to Aaron Rodgers’s family feud. Another comment Munn liked read, “Thank you for standing by Aaron when his own family sold stories to the media in recent weeks and tried very hard to wreck his momentum.
President Donald Trump’s press, secretary Sean Spicer, lied about about the number of people viewing Trump’s inauguration. Spicer’s “alternative facts” have turned him into a laughingstock – and a couple NBA coaches are participating in mocking him. Clippers coach Doc Rivers got Spicer on Saturday. Dan Woike of The Orange County Register: Talking to a group of roughly a dozen reporters, Rivers joked it was OK to inflate the attendance figures. “The largest media crowd in NBA history came to see me today, and I really appreciate it,” he said with a laugh. Then, Warriors coach Steve Kerr took his turn. Kerr was introduced as “former Orlando Magic star” before Golden State’s game in Orlando yesterday.
Jarret Stoll wants to make very clear that he’s not retired. “If something happens with a certain team injury-wise and they need a guy like me I would definitely want to continue to play,” Stoll said. Stoll added that his ability to win key faceoffs – he won 55.3 percent in his NHL career – and his penalty killing savvy are still as sharp as ever.
One of the biggest offseason storylines for the Dallas Cowboys will be the future destination for quarterback Tony Romo; whether he stays in Dallas or goes elsewhere. A likely destination could be the Denver Broncos. And it just so happens that Broncos executive vicepresident of football operations and general manager John Elway was photographed with Romo while at the victory party for new House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-California.
Monken has spent time coaching at the college and pro level. Prior to joining the Bucs in 2016, he was the head coach at Southern Miss from 2013-2015, so he knows the in’s and out’s of recruiting pretty well.
Programming note: Warriors-Heat coverage starts today at 3:30pm with Warriors Pregame Live on CSN Bay Area, and streaming live right here. He is a credentialed NBA star, with enough personal wealth to choose achievement over dollars, the conviction to stand on principle and such an acute cultural awareness that he’s simply unable to tune out the despair gripping much of America. David West has deep concerns and many questions. It’s not that he questions himself and everything he was taught and remains committed to teaching others. The Warriors forward, 36, has seen inequality, up close, yet still continues to believe in the human spirit and its capacity to overcome. Though he clearly is disturbed
It didn’t make sense then and it doesn’t make sense now. And Howie Roseman finally admitted it. He also acknowledged — though in a roundabout way — that the Eagles may have made a mistake by giving up on Eric Rowe so quickly. When Roseman was asked earlier this month at a rare media availability about the team’s decision to trade the promising second-round cornerback to the Patriots just a year after drafting him, his answer was that the Eagles were concerned about being able to re-sign him when his contract expired. Which is after the 2018 season. “When we sat down and discussed the offer, we really started thinking about the likelihood that we had to sign him to an extension,” Roseman said
The embattled quarterback attended the AFC championship game and Mike Florio says that Manziel's actions haven't indicated that NFL teams can trust him.
It's hard to imagine the crushing feeling players must feel after a heartbreaking - and in this case, rather humiliating - playoff loss. They worked so hard all season, fought to within one game of the Super Bowl, and then in one moment in front of the entire country, saw it disintegrate in their hands. A bit like that poor raccoon's cotton candy. Naturally, some emotional talk following the result is to be expected. But after the loss on Sunday night, Ben Roethlisberger took it a bit far. "There were missed opportunities whether we didn't execute well enough, whether plays weren't made by me or other guys. At times it felt like maybe it was too big for some of the young guys." He continued.
The seven-time grand slam winner will have to defeat fellow California native CoCo Vandeweghe to make the final. Vandeweghe -- who packs a huge serve and forehand -- upset 2016 French Open winner Garbine Muguruza of Spain 7-5 6-0 to land in a maiden grand slam semifinal after downing Kerber on Sunday.
Is Robin Lopez the fourth alpha? Three alphas went into a locker room, tried playing basketball together, and then there were none. When the Chicago Bulls added Dwyane Wade and Rajon Rondo to a roster that already included Jimmy Butler this past summer, the team’s incumbent All-Star infamously dubbed this newly formed trio “the three alphas.” And midway through their first season together, we may already have the answer to the question everyone was asking immediately following Chicago’s free agency frenzy: Can they coexist?
A. Todd Haley, who did the following: - ran a deep hand off to DeAngelo Williams twice in a row with first and goal at the 1. - followed that up...

The Dallas Cowboys were knocked out of the running for Super Bowl LI after a loss to the Green Bay Packers. The Dallas Cowboys, the NFL’s most valuable team, are considering a move into the e-sports industry. According to AdAge, the Dallas Cowboys have chosen the Alliance Data-owned marketing agency Epsilon to determine whether it should make a move into the competitive gaming space.
Yasiel Puig made a public appearance today. He was a guest barista at a Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf in Los Angeles as part of a charity . . . thing. I dunno. I just hope that, after finishing the foam on someone’s latte he airmailed it past his fellow barista at the counter and got it to the customer on the fly 300 feet away, after which he flipped the espresso machine. Gotta stay on-brand. After that he talked about baseball. Puig, who was demoted last season and then brought back up in a part-time role, said that it’s his goal to be a starter again, if not in Los Angeles than someplace else. As for the someplace else, the Dodgers explored a Puig trade last season and it was thought they’d try
Get ready for arguably the biggest shake up to the Rules of Golf in generations. The R&A and USGA are set to introduce a plethora of revised rules that will come into effect on Jan. 1, 2020. David Rickman, the R&A’s executive director of rules, addressed the European Tour’s players during a meeting at last week’s Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, where he highlighted new innovations being considered for the 2020 edition of the Rules of Golf. Golfweek understands that among the revised rules under consideration are: reducing the search time for lost balls from five minutes to three; allowing players to repair spike marks on greens; allowing players to drop a ball from any height when taking relief rather than the current stipulation of shoulder height; more of an emphasis on using red stakes for water hazards while still allowing yellow stakes in some cases; and eliminating the use of club lengths for taking relief.
COLUMBUS – It's been a month since the disaster in the desert, Ohio State's 31-0 loss to Clemson in the College Football Playoff semifinal, and the defeat remains pretty hard for many in Buckeye Nation to swallow. While fans are still hurting from the loss, the players have been forced to move on. "A lot of us have actually watched the film," fifth-year senior center Billy Price said on Sunday. "You have to understand what you did wrong, what the aspect work was and just kind of be optimistic about the future." Knowing what went wrong is the only way to improve, but many OSU fans are still trying to figure that out. One guy who seems to have a good idea is quarterback J.T. Barrett. "I know what
The past few years have see many beloved Phillies and Michael Young torn from/shoved out of the city. It's been the Dodgers who have typically grabbed for Phillies at the end of their careers, giving them a big open field to run off the rest of their steam. But Ken Rosenthal says it might be a good idea for the L.A. to start sniffing around Cesar Hernandez who, if anything, might only be at the start of the most effective chapter of his career. Hernandez’s exposure almost literally doubled each year from 2013 to 2015, from 34 games his first year in the bigs to 127 in 2015. Last season, he was a genuine starter at 26 years old, and a hilarious thing started happening. Ha ha, no; not one of the
There isn't always room for niceties in the world of professional sport, but French tennis player Jo-Wilfried Tsonga has bucked the trend. You might remember him helping out a ball girl who was in tears after being struck by a ball at last year's Australian Open, stopping the match to accompany her off the court. SEE ALSO: Tennis pros: Don't hit ball kids 'cos your hopes and dreams will be dashed Here's a video of the moment to help jog your memory. Well, twelve months on, the ball girl -- real name Giuliana -- penned a thank you card to the Frenchman, which he shared on Facebook while back in Melbourne for the tennis tournament. "Dear Mr Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, I wanted to take the opportunity to
Ricky Rubio's name may be on the trade block, but it doesn't mean he's not a highly coveted player. According to Sam Amico of Amico Hoops, both the Chicago Bulls and the New York Knicks have shown interest in acquiring the Minnesota Timberwolves point guard: "The Bulls and Knicks have a strong interest in available Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio, per multiple sources." While Amico doesn't elaborate much further than that, it seems like an odd pairing for both teams. First of all, the Bulls may need a starting point guard with Rajon Rondo likely on his way out. However, they don't have three-pointer shooters. Suffice to say, Rubio is not a good three-point shooter, converting at just a 24.1
Can you smell that Astroturf? That means it's time again for the best Sunday of the entire year! Stock up on chips, gather your loved ones near: it's time for the Super Bowl. Thanks to Lady Gaga's hugely anticipated halftime show and 4 incredible teams
Retired boxer Floyd Mayweather tuned into the NFC Championship Game on Sunday, and he had a decent reason. Mayweather says he placed a $30,000 bet on the first half, taking the Falcons who easily beat the spread with a 24-0 halftime lead over the Packers. Mayweather posted a screenshot of his bet on Instagram to brag about the easy $25,000. Over the years, Mayweather has made a habit of flaunting his gambling winnings on social media. Some of his bets have toppled $1 million, and he rarely shares any of his losing bets. But hey, $25,000 for one half of football doesn't seem too bad - even if it is low by Mayweather's betting standards. He also claimed to make $90,000 on Cincinnati-Tulane basketball.
Tito Ortiz and Dana White’s public feud has been well documented throughout the years, but the relationship has been better as of late. As the UFC Hall-of-Famer ended his career with a win over Chael Sonnen on Bellator 170, his former manager and promoter in White still made sure to send his regards after. “(Dana) actually sent my girlfriend a text message, because she used to work for the UFC and they always talk back and forth,” Ortiz told ESPN. “When I first signed with Bellator, Dana sent me focus mitts with his face on it, saying ‘if this doesn’t motivate you, nothing will’. So I guess that’s our love-hate relationship we got towards each other. “I guess thanks Dana for the text saying ‘That’s
Mike Goldberg began working for the Ultimate Fighting Championship in 1997. On Dec. 28 at UFC 207, Goldberg did play-by-play for his final UFC event. The fight promotion opted to not to renew the commentator’s contract in a move that left the Goldberg in a state of shock and disbelief. “I got the news that my contract would not be renewed, and so I was given about a months notice,” Goldberg said during an appearance on The MMA Hour. “I was a shock. I was speechless. I didn’t know what type of emotion to have, because I was just in a state of shock and disbelief.” Goldberg found out on Dec. 1 that he would no longer be an employee of the UFC. After receiving the news, the Ohio native still had
Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders says he would "benefit" from having Tony Romo as his quarterback, but he also trusts the judgment of John Elway.
