Penny Hardaway hasn’t played a game since 2007, and hadn’t played a meaningful before that since maybe 2001. Still, his collaboration with Nike on the Pennies might be the great run for a sneaker behind MJ’s Jordan’s.
During an interview with Complex the now Memphis area middle school coach revealed that he and Nike are set to release the Penny-6′s.
What’s your relationship...
Earlier in the week we reported that Ronda Rousey went on a radio show and vowed that she could be Floyd Mayweather in an MMA fight.
I wouldn’t even stand up, I wouldn’t even be anywhere near him. I would just do like a little army crawl over there, and he would have to run away. I would just be skittering after him like the one dude inBloodsport that was doing the whole monkey...
The first dominoe of the free agent quarterback carousel has fallen.
Adam Schefter is reporting that Chad Henne has re-upped with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Chandler and Love are buddies, so I don’t think we will see them at Wrestlemania or anything, still pretty funny reply.
Kevin Love, in response to Tyson Chandler's comments about his defense: "F*** him. I don't give a s***."
— Phil Ervin (@PhilErvin) March 7, 2014
I don’t think anyone on the Knicks should be criticizing someone’s defense.
Could you imagine being the defensive coordinator that has to gameplan for ‘Megatron,’ and Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins?
The Lions can, and if they have it their way, Watkins will line-up opposite Calvin Johnson.
I don’t know if they can pull it off. But #Lions are showing a TON of interest in Sammy Watkins. They draft No. 10… & have Megatron. #scary

The decision to cut Moore is a financial one, the move saves the franchise $3.8 million in cash and $2.5 million in cap space.
Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes is set to be a free agent next week, and Friday on NFL Network’s “NFL AM” he indicated that “it’s time for a fresh start” for both parties.
“I would never say never — everybody (says) you never want to burn a bridge,” he said of returning to New England. “But I just feel like we’d both sides would benefit from a fresh start...
The Lakers made the worse kind of history last night as they became the squad to lose by the largest margin in their 142 – 94 beat down at the hands of their in-town rival Clippers. And it’s probably a good thing Bean wasn’t on hand to witness it.
In response to the embarrassment Kobe sent a simple response.
Misery = Motivation #thanku #urwelcome

This sounds like something straight out of a movie.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Sports that a former Detroit Lions player is suspected as being the person that was hired to be a hit man Dby skin care specialist Dawn DaLuise after she was arrested Wednesday for trying to kill a competitor.
The murder did not happen since the cops got wind of it beforehand. The identity of...
According to Stephen A. Smith, Steve Mills, executive vice president and general manager of the New York Knicks, met about two weeks ago with Phil Jackson about the possibility of becoming the next head coach of the New York Knicks.
The sources told Smith the message the Knicks received from Jackson was that he was not interested in the position at this time.
I bet he wasn’t interested.

Bart Scott is off and running already as an NFL analyst.
Scott told Metro New York that Sanchez won’t have a problem finding a job as a quarterback, It just probably won’t be a starting gig.
“Can Sanchez go out and be a player in this league? Absolutely. For me, right now, he’d be one of the top backups in the league,” Scott told Metro New York.

In this day and age of the one-and-done, having a college player that makes it to his senior year is something that coaches and fans appreciate. So, on Senior Night it’s no surprise that Tom Izzo instructed one of his Spartans to throw the ball out of bounds so he could honor his guys.
I don’t know anyone that would complain about that turnover.
Considering the Lakers lost 142-94 last night, Nick Young should probably burn this suit. Well he should do that anyway.
At least Kobe has a sense of humor while the team continues to struggle. He took some time out from posting motivational messages with multiple hashtags on twitter to put up this “Swaggy Unchained” picture.
Nothing wrong with having a little fun.
I see where Mike Woodson is coming from, but he should be more focused on the job at hand, and finishing it out strong. According to the New York Post, Woodson took exception to a report Bulls center Joakim Noah tried to recruit Carmelo Anthony to Chicago during All-Star weekend, calling it illegal and a form of tampering. “I’m not going to get into all of that. You know legally...
