Despite concerns about Dwayne Wade’s health, in a preseason game between the Miami Heat and the New Orleans Pelicans, (I still cannot get over that name) the defending champions made it clear that the chemistry between him and James is still there.
Another SportsCenter top 10 play from the superstars. I am sure we will see plenty more from them throughout the season.
The Bucs aren’t the most menacing team on the gridiron so at least the fans can take some pleasure in knowing that something about their team is scary to opponents and commentators alike. Deadspin caught video of both Cam Newton and Steve Mariucci when they forgot that the Bucs fire off a cannon every time they score at home. At least Newton and Mariucci didn’t have to worry...
Kevin Durant can hear the whispers.
He’s always sticking up for James Harden, he needs a big three like LeBron, maybe he just doesn’t like Russell Westbrook?
Durant heard it all, but things really got interesting when ESPN analyst and Grantland contributor Jalen Rose made this prediction about Durant.
Durant can hear the whispering, even though he is under contract in Oklahoma...
Seahawks CB Richard Sherman loves to talk. The latest thing he is saying might get him talking with someone from the league office about player safety. The talkative CB detailed in The MMQB how he got his first concussion and played through it, even getting an interception in the process:
“On the game’s seventh play, I trailed my receiver down the left sideline and looked back...
Yasiel Puig is flashy and bold, but he definitely hasn’t forgotten where he came from. On Thursday the Dodgers outfielder showed the more humble side of himself. TMZ reports that Puig showed up to batting practice for a little league team in LA called the Texas Rangers and asked if he could hang out.
Of course he was instantly recognized and welcomed to the group. He first took...
So much for Aldon Smith possibly missing all of this season with personal and legal issues.
49ers General Manager Trent Baalke is in London with his team as they prepare for Sunday’s game against the Jaguars, but his mind is on the postseason and the weapons he’ll have at his disposal for a playoff run.
Aldon Smith is still reportedly in rehab, but Baalke echoed sentiments from...
After another loss last night the last thing the Bucs need is bad news on Doug Martin’s injury. It’s not looking good. According to Alex Marvez of Fox Sports, he could miss up to two months but as little as two weeks:
Latest on @TBBuccaneers RB Doug Martin: Source tells @FOXSports he could be out "2 weeks to 2 months" because of shoulder injury. Not good
When Mike Miller and the Miami Heat parted ways at the end of last season, it seemed that all was well between the two parties. New reports are surfacing that suggests that there might be some bad blood between Miller and the Heat. CBS Sports has information that indicates that Miller and the Heat may be in for a bitter court battle for the sum of $1.7 million if settlement talks...
Now this is the Cameron Newton I’m used to seeing, and would like to see whether good or bad things happen to him on the field.
Newton is playing the best football of his career right now, and the conversation’s after games are no longer about his poor disposition, but rather his leadership and humility.
Asked about his exceptional play recently, Newton didn’t take time to...
Come on Darrelle, tell the truth, you know your teammates have already started making vacation arrangement for the off-season. The Buccaneers are 0-7, and even though they’re not mathematically out of playoff contention, some if not all the players on the team have checked out in my opinion. Star cornerback Darrelle Revis was asked if his teammates still had any believe in their...
Glass half full, the Cardinals won the game.
Cardinals Fan Failed High Five
The Suns feel like they have a cornerstone combo guard in Eric Bledsoe, and according to reports, they are trying to lock him up long term.
Arizona Sports is reporting that the Suns are working on a contract extension for Bledsoe on par with DeMarcus Cousins and others in his draft class.
Suns GM Ryan McDonough, while on Arizona Sports 620′s Burns & Gambo show Wednesday, agreed...
The Cowboys and Jay Ratliff have officially divorced, and according to one integral Cowboys player, it’s good riddance.
Sean Lee is the heart of the Cowboys defense, and not a fan of Ratliff. Lee had nothing good to say about Ratliff during an appearance on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas where he let Ratliff know what it really was.
“If you don’t want to be here and play for this...
Michael Vick is expected to be back under center for the Eagles on Sunday, but first he must pass one last test.
Vick told CSN Philly that he planned to sprint 100 yards as fast as he can on Friday, so that he can truly tell if the hamstring will hold up under duress.
“I’m going to run 100 yards as fast as I can, and try to cut, try to make some subtle movement in the pocket...
While other Pro Football Hall of Famers are sitting around playing dominoes, teaching yoga, or body slamming teacher’s at their high school, Shannon Sharpe spends his free time playing the lottery.
Sharpe won $1,200 playing cash four. He’s officially a dollarnaire.
That’s a lot of bread, I wonder what he’s going to spend it on?

Drake the kind of guy who could be surrounded by a room full of chicks and make that facial expression.
Drake was in Philly Saturday night, and ran into Laura Roberts, the fiance of Eagles safety Kurt Coleman. Roberts was celebrating her bacherlotte party when Drake just happened to walk on by.
The rest is all in his expression.

What does the future hold for Royce White?
S/O to the @Sixers… Good luck to my boys, great guys. #BeWell

White hasn’t played a single game in the NBA but has managed to be let go from two teams. The Sixers have waived Royce White, in addition to Vander Blue, Mac Koshwal and Khalif Wyatt.
Lala Anthony went on the Bethenny show yesterday to talk about her relationship with NBA superstar Carmelo Anthony. When asked about her relationship with the NBA’s scoring champion and how she feels about him going on the road so often, Lala spoke very confidently.
“I’m just very secure in myself. I can’t worry about what’s happening on the road. I know our relationship...
ESPN created a stir with their NBA player rankings when Kobe “Bean” Bryant was rated as the 25th best player.
As you could expect, Bryant found the ranking as a joke.
Kobe on his ESPN #NBArank: "Twenty-five was pretty silly. It was pretty laughable. But still in all, it’s a challenge I willingly accept"

I understand what he is saying, but no…….
“I think Tony would be the first to tell you that he’s disappointed that his success in the postseason and winning a Super Bowl hasn’t been better.
“But I think in due time he’ll get his justice, his day in court and when he does lead us to a Super Bowl, which I do think will happen, then I think all the doubters will go by...
Honest Kobe is such a beautiful thing.
Kobe Bryant just said anyone who thinks he's 25th best player in the world needs drug testing

Rodney Harrison was on with Amani & Eytan NBC Sports Radio and basically said Josh Freeman is faking (you can listen to the full audio here). It is very rare to hear players, even EX-player question each other injuries, but Harrison implies that Freeman seeing that the Vikings aren’t very good pulled a Roberto Duran. I would hope that isn’t the case, but Harrison who on...
Having your ACL blown to pieces no problem, but a hamstring injury causes AP to mentally shut down? Interesting getting into the minds of athletes sometimes.
Peterson said Thursday that he feels the hamstring injury has impacted him mentally in terms of not cutting loose on the field, something he doesn’t think will be the case against the Packers this weekend.
“I feel like it...
I’m sure if you called Tyrone (see what I did there) and asked coach if it was worth it, he’d say no.

Lockland (Cincinnati) High School’s varsity football coach was arrested this week and charged with selling district-owned sports equipment on eBay.
Tyrone O. Copeland, 44, of Golf Manor, Ohio, was booked into the Hamilton County jail about 6:30 p.m....
The irony here is at a all-time high.
This is the same Monta Ellis that averages under five assists a game for his eight year career.
Ellis is shooting 40% from the field and 30% from distance this preseason. Those numbers are similar to last year but he’s blaming his inefficient play on passing too much.
“I think I’m looking for the pass too much,” Ellis said after Wednesday’s...
