  • It’s Time for Colin Kaepernick to Move On
    Kaepernick almost never says anything. Kaepernick hasn't played in the NFL since 2016, when anyway he was merely the disappointing starter on its worst team, and given that dozens of quarterbacks have entered the league since then and that he's been gathering rust like the Tin Woodman for three years, he obviously is never going to play in the show again. A handy rule of thumb when you're trying to get a job is “don't fire off a lawsuit against your potential employer.” Kaepernick settled out of court with the league in February, and that's that.

  • Tacko Fall's agent: 'If the Celtics release him, I don’t think he goes unclaimed'
    Tacko Fall signed with the Boston Celtics after going undrafted in the 2019 NBA Draft. And in the two months since that occurred, the 7-foot-6 center has quickly developed into a fan favorite.

He has not yet been bought out by the Memphis Grizzlies, but a return to L.A. for Howard would be one of the most Lakers things of all time.

    When the Warriors acquired All-Star guard D'Angelo Russell from the Nets in a sign-and-trade this offseason, general manager Bob Myers knew much more about the player than the person.
