According to Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes, the 6-foot-1 guard continually interrupted NBPA Executive Director Michele Roberts as she tried to explain the financial repercussions of abandoning the league's bubble.

Both Mercedes drivers and Verstappen will start the race on the medium tyres as they were able to get through Q2 on what is a better race tyre than the red-walled softs the rest of the top 10 will start on if the track is dry. Ferrari managed to avoid losing a driver in Q1, but Charles Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel were both eliminated in the next segment, one year on from the former taking pole at Spa.
The New York Yankees losing streak reached seven games Friday night after they lost both ends of a doubleheader to the New York Mets.

NBA players went on strike, clashed with each other then ended their strike only a day later before their big meeting with owners and before any tangible gains were announced. The Bucks – seeking justice for Jacob Blake and the Wisconsin State Legislature to address police accountability, police brutality and criminal justice reform – chose not to play Game 5 against the Magic on Wednesday. The Lakers and Trail Blazers, scheduled for the late game, followed suit.
Chicago Bears Hall of Fame linebacker Brian Urlacher came under severe scrutiny on Thursday for his recent activity on Instagram following the shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha. Urlacher posted an image criticizing the NBA players for not participating in the playoffs, comparing the walkout to former Green Bay Packers QB Brett Favre playing through the grief of losing his father back in 2003. The 2018 Hall of Fame inductee then “liked” a photo showing support for Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year old who is accused of multiple homicide charges after three people were shot during the protests in Kenosha, two of whom were killed.
The round started with promise and ended in disaster. Here are a few thoughts and observations after Tiger Woods' third round at the BMW Championship, as the reigning Masters champ now has just one round left in his 2019-20 season: • After two days of struggling amid difficult conditions, Woods came out of the gates strong with an early-morning time alongside PGA champ Collin Morikawa. Two birdies in his first five holes helped him make the turn in 2 under, and Woods didn't drop a shot over his first nine holes.

The Dolphins are receiving the Raiders' fourth-round pick in 2021 but are giving the Raiders their fifth-round pick in 2021. McMillan is earning $1.1 million in the final year of his contract.
It feels inappropriate to turn our attention to Major League Baseball's trade deadline after a week that saw civil unrest reach the generally staid and risk-averse national pastime, and yet the pages of the calendar continue to turn. Teams have until Monday at 4 p.m. to complete deals, and the Red Sox remain in the same position they were before protests reached baseball's shores -- looking to sell in a sea of buyers. There are worse places to be from a leverage standpoint, and there's little doubt Chaim Bloom will be active over the next 48 hours, even if the entire sport effectively spent Wednesday through Friday on hiatus and continues to grapple with its treatment of minorities.
Supremely talented athletes who do everything in their power to test the patience of their team if that talent is worth all the baggage they bring with them. Can you tell we are about to talk about running back Le'Veon Bell? This might not be directly relevant to the Steelers but given the number of fans who went out their way to defend Bell when the Steelers didn't re-sign him, these sorts of reminders are always necessary.

Using Yahoo fantasy football ADP, here's a round-by-round look at the value pick in each round of the draft based on a 12-team, half-point PPR league. Round 1 - Davante Adams, Green Bay Packers (ADP: 11.6) The Packers had a glaring need to add talent behind Adams at wide receiver and with Devin Funchess announcing he will opt-out of the upcoming season, the team officially has added nobody. Concerning for Green Bay's overall air attack?
Europe's Ryder Cup heavyweights have lined up to criticise the LPGA Tour for its bizarre, if not disgraceful, treatment of Sophia Popov since the German won the AIG Women's Open last weekend. Ian Poulter, Tommy Fleetwood and Thomas Bjorn all expressed their disgust at the Troon hero not only being denied entry to the second major of the season - the Ana Inspiration in two weeks' time - but also the usual five-year exemption as a Tour member. It is fair to say that Mike Whan, the LPGA commissioner, felt under increasing pressure on Friday after Poulter called the Tour “embarrassing to the game of golf” and Fleetwood termed it “stupid to say the least”.

Bautista Agut won the opening set and was about to serve at 4-5 in the second when organisers decided to close the roof of the Louis Armstrong stadium during the changeover, anticipating rain.
