  • NBA Free Agency Rumors: LeBron James 'Calling Players On Other Teams He Wants To Play With'
    With free agency one week away, the Los Angeles Lakers are expected to be major players for the first time since the rebuilding process began in 2013. Unlike four years ago, however, the storied franchise has a legitimate chance of signing LeBron James. Although the Lakers are in a similar position with significant salary cap space, this time around they also have established a talented young core led by Julius Randle (restricted free agent), Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma and Josh Hart. Since the conclusion of the 2017-18 NBA season, much of the discussion has been about Los Angeles landing two or three All-Star players. Although the San Antonio Spurs are reportedly reluctant to trade More

  • Watch The Most Violent Head Kick Knockout In WMMA Since Holm Vs. Rousey
    The International Mixed Martial Arts Federation (IMMAF) just held its 2018 Senior European Championships in Bucharest, Romania over the week and the amateur tournament event featured one of the meanest kicks to the face since Holly Holm dethroned Ronda Rousey in 2016. Finland’s Jenni Kivioja caught Sweden’s Jessica Forslund Reis with the fight stopping headkick at 2:38 of the first round in their women’s featherweight fight. Watch it now: The fight was Kivioja’s first of three in as many days. She’d go on to beat Italy’s Fabiana Giampa on the scorecards in the semis before losing in the finals via decision to Germany’s Julia Dorney. That landed Kivioja a silver medal in her weightclass and a More

  • Germany's stunning goal against Sweden was a blow to Mexico as there is now a scenario that could knock them out of the World Cup
    Germany breathed life into their 2018 World Cup campaign with a stoppage-time stunner from Toni Kroos to keep the team's hope of repeating as champions alive. With Germany's win, Group F has fallen into chaos, with all four teams still alive heading into the final matchday of the group stage. Despite Mexico being the only undefeated remaining in the group, El Tri still has not yet punched its ticket yet to the knockout round. Meanwhile, even South Korea, who have yet to steal a single point in the group, still isn't technically eliminated from the tournament. With just two matches remaining, the scenarios within Group F are still quite confounding — we did our best to break them down for you More

  • NBA Rumors: LeBron James Has Been ‘Calling Players He Wants To Play With’
    LeBron James has until June 29 to decide to pick up his contract option for the 2018-19 season with the Cleveland Cavaliers. If James declines the option, which many expect he will, the 33-year-old star will become an unrestricted free agent July 1. While NBA teams are under a directive to not tamper with potential free agents, that doesn’t mean James isn’t making a few phone calls. Mark Hesler of the Orange Country Register reported Saturday that King James has been trying to see who is willing to join him either in Cleveland or on a new team. “LeBron is doing what we does — calling players on other teams he wants to play with,” an Eastern Conference general manager told Hesler. Rumors have More

  • PGA Tour rules official tells Bryson DeChambeau he might not be able to use a compass on the course
    Bryson DeChambeau’s use of a compass during the third round of the Travelers Championship caught fire on social media. It also caught the attention of the PGA Tour. Rules officials approached DeChambeau about the device on the range following his third round at Saturday at TPC River Highlands. More

  • Zach Johnson penalized shot due to 10-second rule
    A matter of seconds cost Zach Johnson a shot on Friday. An 18-foot birdie putt at TPC River Highlands’ par-4 third (Johnson’s 12th) during the second round of the Travelers Championship saw Johnson’s ball finish right on the lip. As Rule 16-2 notes, when a ball overhangs the lip a player is allowed time to reach the hole without “unreasonable delay” and an additional 10 seconds to determine if the ball is at rest. If the ball falls in the hole in that timespan, the player is deemed to have holed out with the putt and is given that score. But if the ball falls in the hole after that unreasonable delay + 10-second timespan, a player must add a penalty shot to his score. In essence, Johnson would’ve More

  • Cavs sign former five-star recruit Billy Preston
    The Cavaliers have reportedly a high-upside, low-risk prospect. According to Yahoo’s Shams Charania, Cleveland has signed forward Billy Preston, a former five-star recruit, after Preston went undrafted in Thursday’s NBA Draft. Preston was a five-star recruit coming out of high school at the acclaimed Oak Hill Academy and played in the 2017 McDonald’s All-American game. Prior to Oak Hill, he also attended three other schools: St. John Bosco High School, Redondo Union High School and Prime Prep Academy. From there, he was supposed to play at Kansas, but was ruled out indefinitely by the team after a car accident he was in resulted in an investigation into the vehicle. He left the Jayhawks without More

  • Cavaliers still trying to trade for Kemba Walker, move seen as their only chance to keep LeBron James from leaving
    When trying to sort out where LeBron James will sign this offseason, the first question that needs to be answered is whether the Cleveland Cavaliers even have a chance to keep him in free agency. Despite coming off of an NBA Finals appearance, the Cavs’ chances to keep their best player ever are looking bleak. The Los Angeles Lakers are seen as the odds-on favorite to sign James, and it seems like the Cavaliers would need to make a huge offseason splash to have any chance of retaining their superstar. According to Ken Berger of Bleacher Report, that’s exactly what the Cavaliers are trying to do: The Cavs continue to explore the possibility of working a deal with the Charlotte Hornets for two-time More

  • Sweden has a lot to be upset about after last-minute loss
    SOCHI, Russia (AP) — A last-minute goal. A non-called penalty. A disrespectful celebration. Sweden had a lot to be upset about when the final whistle blew on Saturday. The Swedes were within seconds of holding defending champion Germany to a draw, and moving into good position to advance to the round of 16 at the World Cup, when Toni Kroos scored deep into stoppage time to give Germany a 2-1 come-from-behind victory. "I'm sorry that we didn't get at least one point," Sweden coach Janne Andersson said. "But I'm not blaming anyone tactically or analyzing too much right now, there are so many emotions going around. This is probably the heaviest conclusion that I've experienced in my career." Kroos' More

  • High school coach sheds light on enigma of Knicks’ second pick
    Chalmette (La.) High School coach Butch Stockton may have concerns for his former player’s first summer league game in Las Vegas as the Knicks’ new 7-foot center Mitchell Robinson gets into game shape. Robinson, selected by the Knicks in the second round Thursday with the 36th pick in the NBA draft, hasn’t played a 5-on-5 game in 14 months — last flying up the court in the high school All-Star event, the Jordan Classic, in April 2017. But if Robinson survives Vegas, Stockton said, he believes Knicks fans are in for a high-flying treat. Stockton has seen the athletic 20-year-old center drain seven 3-pointers in a row and block 12 shots in a game when he coached Robinson at Chalmette — located More
