  • Rumor: LeBron James weighs 280 pounds
    LeBron James is listed at 6-foot-8, 250 pounds. But he also recently missed 18 of 19 Lakers games with a groin injury that undermined his conditioning routine. So, how much does LeBron weigh now? More

  • Phil Mickelson goes next-level Phil Mickelson, plays flop shot OVER a hospitality stand at Riviera's 18th hole
    Add "flop shot over an enormous hospitality chalet" to the list of shots the 44-time PGA Tour winner is willing to pull off. On the final hole of his second round, Phil pulled his approach to Riviera County Club's 18th hole way right—so much so that it bounded down the cart path and came to rest next to the tee at the 10th hole. In between Phil and the 18th green was a huge hospitality grandstand, which would've entitled Phil to take relief and get a drop for line of sight. More

  • Adam Silver on Dirk Nowitzki: 'I saw him painfully running up and down the court, and I think it was clear that this was going to be his last season'
    “I didn't think about it in terms of the next year or whether there will be other opportunities,” Silver said. Except 1971-73, when they went a whopping 14 deep, All-Star rosters have had 10, 11 or 12 players. The result: It's harder than ever for players to become All-Stars. More

  • Kevin Garnett takes issue with Anthony Davis' agent over trade request
    Anthony Davis' comments Saturday raised an important question. Who's really in charge of his trade request from the New Orleans Pelicans: Himself or his agent?

The former Boston Celtics star spoke candidly about the Davis saga Saturday night on TNT's broadcast from NBA All-Star Weekend, seemingly taking issue with Rich Paul of Klutch Sports for how the Davis saga has played out over the last few weeks.

  • Antonio Brown faults Mike Tomlin for telling Steelers he quit
    Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is continuing to mix it up with fans on Twitter, and he suggested in one tweet that he holds coach Mike Tomlin accountable for the perception that Brown quit on the team before their final game of the season. Responding to a fan who accused him of showing by sitting out the final game of the season that he doesn't really love football, Brown wrote that Tomlin telling the Steelers he quit on them made him out to be the bad guy. “After the coach tell the team I quit while nursing some bumps then invite me to watch the show with same guys thinking I quit i can not stand with that! I'm the bad guy doe we miss post season think about it,” Brown wrote. More

  • Josh Rosen's turbulent offseason continues with Tesla crash
    After rookie season to forget, Josh Rosen hasn't had the easiest offseason. The Arizona Cardinals fired head coach Steve Wilks and brought in offensively focused mind with no NFL coaching experience to speak of Kliff Kingsbury, whose past comments and shared agent with Kyler Murray led some to speculate the Cardinals could trade Rosen and draft Murray first overall. While that is very unlikely happen — Kingsbury has already gone out of his way to reiterate that the team is building around Rosen — it still probably hasn't been very enjoyable for Rosen. More

  • Stephen Curry gets four-point play after Klay Thompson foul, Curry does some taunting

  • Doug Williams: We need to find somebody to mix in at quarterback
    Alex Smith's wife shared photos of her husband taking some time out of his own recovery from a broken leg by visiting with wounded soldiers at the Center for the Intrepid last week and those snapshots showed that Smith is still wearing an external fixator over his cast. Running back Chris Thompson acknowledged as much recently, but senior vice president of player personnel Doug Williams wasn't willing to count Smith out during a recent appearance on SiriusXM NFL Radio. Williams is aware that no one can rule Smith in either and that means the team has to be prepared with other options at quarterback. More
