Foot Locker has come through with one of the best commercials you'll see in sports or anywhere.  In the spot, Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving looks ahead to Foot Locker's Week of Greatness by imagining what might happen when all is right in the world.  It includes Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield hugging it out, Dennis Rodman flying to North Korea and not coming back, Brett Favre poking fun at his flip-flopping, and even a hilarious cameo from Craig Sager.  It might be the best sports commercial this year... Mike Tyson delivering a piece of Evander Holyfield's ear to him in a small jewlery box?  It doesn't get better than that.  Well, maybe it does.  Craig Sager burning all of his suits in a massive bonfire may have been even funnier.  It doesn't necessarily make me want to buy any shoes at Foot Locker, but it's a commercial masterpiece.

Waiters returns to Cavs practice, denies “players only” meeting getting physical

We men. Nobody got into no altercations or anything like that. We got everything off our chests that we needed to. That’s that. All the other rumors, man, are rumors—don’t believe it, it’s not true.
