The BBVA Rising Stars Challenge has turned into a mostly ho-hum affair, due in most part to mixing rookies and sophomores as teammates — thus removing any incentive to play even half-heartedly. Friday was no different, as Team Chuck destroyed Team Shaq by a score of…well, that’s not important. What is important is that around the 5:30 mark of the second half, Kyrie Irving must have sensed the viewing audience’s collective yawn, and immediately sucked them back in with a little razzle-dazzle — at the expense of poor Brandon Knight. Knight did come back at Irving at the opposite end, and the two guards traded crossovers on each other over the next few possessions, putting a cap on an otherwise forgettable night.

  • Nothing's going right for Kentucky Cat's, including Knight getting taken by a former Blue Devil. Bad year fellow Cats.

RUMORS & GOSSIP

Report: Antonio Brown joins Steelers voluntary work outs

Last week, Pittsburgh Steelers’ wide receiver Antonio Brown decided not to show up for the team’s voluntary workouts that began last Monday. It was reported that Brown was looking for new deal by sending the team a message with his planned absence from the workouts. On Monday, however, it would appear that Brown has changed his tactics. Probably against the advice of super-agent...

Charles Barkley: JR Smith should be suspended 10 games

Cleveland Cavaliers swingman J.R. Smith is in danger of missing at least the first game of his team’s second-round playoff series against either the Chicago Bulls or Milwaukee Bucks after he was ejected on Sunday for nailing an opponent in the face. Charles Barkley feels Smith should be out a lot longer than that. After...Read More

Kelly Olynkyk: I'd probably get killed if I went to Cleveland

Kelly Olynyk reiterated Monday what he said after Sunday’s loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers: He did not intentionally injure Cavs forward Kevin Love. “Obviously, I would never intentionally hurt him or any player on the floor,” the Boston Celtics center told The Boston Globe. “I don’t think anybody in our league would intentionally try and hurt someone, especially at this...

Report: Redskins likely to pick up Robert Griffin III's option

The Washington Redskins announced on Monday that they will pick up the fifth-year option on Robert Griffin III’s rookie contract. This is a decision that will keep him with the team through at least the 2016 season. The price to pick up RGIII’s option will be a cool $16.1 million in 2016, which is quite the bounty for a quarterback that has struggled with consistency and injuries...

Eagles trying to trade Marcus Smith for another duck?

If we have learned anything about Chip Kelly since he took over as the personnel boss for the Philadelphia Eagles, it’s that he’s willing to part with any player on the roster. It doesn’t matter if you’re a franchise quarterback, one of the best running backs in the NFL, an All-Pro center, or a draft bust, everybody can be moved. Now it sounds like another Eagle is on the...

Chris Paul-Blake Griffin no longer a fragile relationship

The Los Angeles Clippers are supposedly a team riddled with personality issues. Chris Paul is apparently a jerk. Austin Rivers is daddy’s little boy. Blake Griffin hates Chris Paul because Chris Paul is a jerk. Fun stuff like that. Los Angeles struggling in the first few games of its series against the San Antonio Spurs didn’t help matters, either; nor did a few late-season...

Adam Wainwright injury leaves innings void for Cardinals

The St. Louis Cardinals took two of the three games from the Milwaukee Brewers over the weekend, but the wins cannot wash over the losses the team suffered. Over three games, Yadier Molina, Adam Wainwright, and Jason Heyward all left games early due to injury. Molina did not play on Saturday or Sunday, but has […]

Report: Cowboys not in running for Adrian Peterson

The Dallas Cowboys are reportedly not interested in making a trade for Adrian Peterson. Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports that the Cowboys have no interest in making a trade for the 30-year-old running back. That could have something to do with Peterson’s age and the money he is still owed, or it could...Read More

Kevin Love injury a powerful argument for playoff reform

If you were to ask 100 people in a room about the length of the NBA’s first-round playoff series, you’d get a reasonable number of responses advocating a return to the best-of-five format: This Love/Olynyk incident is a reminder of why the NBA needs to go back to best-of-5. A meaningless game led to an unnecessary injury. — Llama Buffalo Fan (@chrisskreager) April 26...
