Thunder GM not sweating summer of 2016

LAS VEGAS -- Remember that tweet from Kevin Durant four summers announcing his contract extension with Oklahoma City? How time flies when deals are done.

What to expect at Big 12 Media Days

Media days are a silly exercise, really. It was born out of the Skywriters' Tour, when groups of reporters would shuttle around college campuses in airplanes and buses over the course of a week. These days, media convene in one central location and teams join them. In the 10-team Big 12, it's a two-day event. Last week, the 14-team SEC did the same for four days. As college...

Three Oklahoma defensive players to watch this season

Geneo Grissom was a star against Alabama in the Sugar Bowl. Linebackers Eric Striker and Dominique Alexander are two of the most-dynamic players on the defensive side of the ball. Quentin Hayes had more than 100 tackles last season. Even punter Jed Barnett is getting a lot of run this preseason. So, who are some of the candidates on the defensive side of the ball who could surprise...

Spurs bringing the band back for encore

LAS VEGAS -- The San Antonio Spurs are bringing the band back together after an ensemble run to their fifth NBA championship. That doesn't mean they weren't looking for another lead guitarist. The dalliance with Pau Gasol proves the Spurs weren't satisfied with just standing pat. Adding perhaps the league's best-passing big man to the best-passing team might have...

Ex-NBA star Tracy McGrady retires from baseball after first strikeout

Tracy McGrady's baseball career didn't last long. The former NBA star made his first professional strikeout with the Sugar Land Skeeters at the Atlantic League All-Star Game on Wednesday.

Dirk playing past 40? Mavs president thinks so

LAS VEGAS -- Dirk Nowitzki shocked a lot of folks by agreeing to a three-year contract with the Dallas Mavericks for a modest (by NBA superstar standards) $25 million. Don't be surprised if this isn't his last deal.

Still plenty of reasons to watch the Rangers

The chances of the Texas Rangers making a run at anything other than mediocrity in the final 67 games of the season are slim. The gambling site Bovada has the Rangers chances of winning the World Series at 750-1. Texas isn't even listed by the site for American League West odds. But that doesn't mean there's not a lot at stake for Texas over the final two-plus months...

Rangers take eight-game slide into break

ARLINGTON, Texas -- At least the losing streak for the Texas Rangers takes a break Monday. It doesn't come to an end though, as the Los Angeles Angels handed Texas a 10-7 beating Sunday to extend the skid to eight games.

WACO, Texas --Two years ago, Art Briles had just stepped outside Baylor's football facility when a carload of fans from an out-of-state in-conference school stopped him in the parking lot.

Tim Duncan could have easily gone out on top, with his fifth NBA championship trophy under his arm and his health intact just a few months after his 38th birthday. There's just no way. Duncan is having too much fun with his San Antonio Spurs coaches and teammates, and he's playing too well to call it quits now. Duncan has decided to exercise the option on his contract for...

So close again: Rangers' Darvish loses no-hit bid with out to go

ARLINGTON, Texas — Texas starter Yu Darvish came within one out of notching one of the more improbable no-hitters Friday night in an 8-0 win over the Boston Red Sox. And maybe one that will be the most debated. A scorer's decision in the seventh inning kept the no-hitter intact and Darvish carried it until there were two outs in the ninth inning.
