  • Lexi Thompson enjoys another week playing against the guys, outdriving Charley Hoffman and getting Tiger Woods' attention
    Officially, the duo of Lexi Thompson and Tony Finau finished seventh in the 12-team field at the QBE Shootout on Sunday. Unofficially, the pairing won the week at Tiburón Golf Club in Naples, Fla., at least judging by the buzz they created. Or should we say the buzz that Thompson, the lone female in the field, drew with her power game. More

    The Green Bay Packers did well against the Atlanta Falcons, and in the third quarter their quarterback increased their lead with beautiful touchdown pass and set a new NFL record on the same play.

  • Winston Moss jokes that Aaron Rodgers has been the head coach in Green Bay
    If former Packers assistant coach Winston Moss is hoping to secure another job in the NFL, cracking jokes on TV about dysfunction at his last job may not be the best way to make that happen. Moss appeared on FOX earlier today to discuss the recent changes More

  • College football players sitting out bowl games in 2018
    Back in 2016, it was a huge controversy when LSU running back Leonard Fournette and Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey, after declaring for the NFL draft, decided to skip their team’s bowl game. This year, we will keep an updated list of the players who decide not to play in their team’s bowl game. West Virginia QB Will Grier is one of several high-profile players skipping bowl games in preparation for the 2019 NFL Draft. More

  • Butler scores 38 points in Sixers win, LeBron double-double not enough
    Jimmy Butler posted his second successive 38-point game to lead the Philadelphia 76ers to a 117-111 win against the Detroit Pistons, while LeBron James was unable to lift the Los Angeles Lakers. The 76ers were without NBA All-Star big man Joel Embiid but a Butler-inspired Philadelphia rallied to beat the Pistons on Friday. Butler finished with 38 points – 13 in the fourth quarter – six rebounds and six assists, making 12 of 26 field goals for the 76ers, who trailed by as many as 15 points in the third quarter. More

  • Bulls suffer worst lost in franchise history just days after firing Fred Hoiberg
    In fact, it got so bad that the front office fired coach Fred Hoiberg on Monday in hopes to turn things around. The Chicago Bulls fell to the Boston Celtics 133-77 on Saturday night at the United Center, marking the worst loss in Bulls franchise history. It also marked the Celtics’ largest victory in team history and tied the NBA record for largest margin of victory in a road game, according to the Chicago Tribune. More

  • 'Embarrassed' Warriors get revenge against Bucks, issue warning to NBA
    The Warriors needed a reassuring game not for themselves -- as their faith never really wavers -- but for the anxious segments of their fan base and perhaps a few skeptics around the NBA. A 105-95 victory over a Bucks team that ravaged the Warriors four weeks ago in Oakland served notice that the defending champs still have the capacity to survive their own imperfections and wallop a high-quality team on its own floor. Beneath the pretty 3-point shooting (19-of-46, 41.3 percent) and the exemplary ball movement (32 assists on 40 field goals) was a defense that squeezed and scratched and scuffled the Bucks into the longest night of their impressive season.

  • Zach Johnson parts ways with caddie after 15 years, two majors
    Caddie Damon Green is not be a name widely known by golf fans, but they certainly recognize Green's "bird dance," unleashed every time his player, Zach Johnson, would card a red number.

  • Valentina Shevchenko Dominates Joanna Jedrzejczyk to Claim Flyweight Belt at UFC 231
    Valentina Shevchenko showed that she is the woman to be beat in the flyweight division with her dominance of former strawweight queen Joanna Jedrzejczyk at UFC 231 on Saturday in Toronto. Shevchenko had defeated Jedrzejczyk three times previously, but all three of those bouts were contested under Muay Thai rules. If anything, Shevchenko looked even more dominant. More

  • Eric Gordon says Rockets are ‘not using some guys the right way’
    The Houston Rockets aren’t who we thought they were. The team that gave the Golden State Warriors a run for their money in the Western Conference Finals last season have looked unsteady to open the year, and despite jettisoning Carmelo Anthony, have not returned to their former glory. While this has much to do with overall team construction, individual players in Houston have struggled as well. More

  • LeBron James surprised Grizzlies equipment manager with his shoes after win in Memphis
    Brian’e Miller showed up to work on Friday night at the FedEx Forum wearing a pair of LeBrons, just like she does for every Memphis Grizzlies game. Miller is an assistant equipment manager for the Grizzlies, and a huge LeBron James fan. “Every year I’ve come here, she’s always worn a very exclusive pair of my shoes and I’ve always noticed it and I’ve never said anything to her,” James told the Commercial Appeal.

  • Report: Lakers eyeing Trevor Ariza in trade talks with Suns
    Trevor Ariza’s tenure in Phoenix could be approaching its end. Trevor Ariza likely figured his tenure with the Phoenix Suns would be short after signing a one-year, $15 million contract with the team in free agency this offseason, but he probably didn’t think it would be this brief. 26 games into a season to forget for the 4-22 Suns, the Los Angeles Lakers are engaged in trade talks for Ariza that would likely ship out Kentavious Caldwell-Pope to a third team, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
