New faces help Spurs continue unparalleled success

This isn’t a transitional year for the San Antonio Spurs. They’ve moved past the Tim Duncan era, but all of the work needed to make a smooth transition was completed in the years leading up to his retirement. The team brought in Kawhi Leonard via the draft, LaMarcus Aldridge via free agency and continued to convince Manu Ginobili to stay with the team despite his apparent desire...

The Pirates prepare for rarely chartered waters in dealing Andrew McCutchen

Twenty-four months ago, it would have been an absurd idea to think that the Pirates could be considering trading the cornerstone of their resurgent operation. Twelve months ago, it would have been little more than a whisper of a possibility. However, as December 2016 sets in, it appears more and more likely that Andrew McCutchen will not see the new year as a member of the Pittsburgh...

The 10 best sports docs available for streaming

The beauty in sports isn’t the scores or endless streams of data that explain outcomes. It’s usually what’s outside the lines that captivate us. As much as we all love watching a game-winning shot or a milestone game, it is the stories of how those athletes get there that bring a more human element to sports.

Jeff Fisher is the unkillable cockroach of NFL head coaches

Even for a franchise like the Rams it seemed too easy for Jeff Fisher to collect his annual nine or more losses and get a contract extension without encountering any resistance. So it should be at least a little reassuring that Eric Dickerson is pleading for Fisher’s ouster as Rams coach after four losing seasons and what’s shaping up to be a fifth. Dickerson has brought momentum...

Four teams to keep an eye on at the 2017 Winter Meetings

On Wednesday night, the baseball world got good news when the league's owners and the players union came to an agreement regarding the Collective Bargaining Agreement.

Porzingis reshapes Knicks by elevating his game

You know the story by now: he was booed at draft night by a few fans who decided to live up to the obnoxious “Noo Yawk” sports fan stereotypes, but made the city love him once he finally hit the court.
