Russell Westbrook wears another ugly shirt at Game 1 of NBA Finals (Photo)

Another Thunder game. Another time Russell Westbrook makes us ask “WTF is he wearing?” This time, for Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Tuesday, Westbrook showed up wearing a white collared shirt printed with what appear to be skiers. If you blur your vision it kind of looks like something John Travolta wears in “Saturday Night Fever.” And he also brought back the red glasses...

Washington 1 of 2 states that don’t want the Thunder to win the NBA Finals (Photo)

If I told you only two states (according to a totally scientific ESPN.com poll) wanted the Miami Heat to win the NBA Finals, do you think you could guess them correctly? Obviously, Florida would be one of your answers. But what about the other? Oh right, it would be Washington. You know, the state the Thunder used to play in as the Seattle Sonics before they were mercilessly ripped...

Now Chip Kelly has the chance to exact...

Andrew Luck was more focused on Colts playbook than he was for school

After missing OTAs to finish up his degree at Stanford, Andrew Luck on Tuesday finally got back on the practice field with Colts teammates. And according to Luck, he found it hard to focus on his studies during the final few weeks of school. Very understandable.

Rafael Nadal may have won his seventh career French Open on Monday, but he had to deal with a couple of complications along the way.

Soccer player Leo Ponzio bursts hemorrhoid during match (Video)

For those of you who want to argue that soccer players are not tough, look no further than the disgusting video above. When I first saw this, I thought for sure it had to be some sort of joke. Maybe River Plate midfielder Leo Ponzio fell on paint on the field. Perhaps he was wearing a pair of edible underwear that wasn’t suited for temperatures above 80 degrees and it melted...

Jason Witten almost misses first offseason practice of his career with jury duty

Jason Witten is one of the hardest-working players in the NFL. We know that because he has never missed an offseason practice in his entire 10-year career. Remaining healthy requires a combination of conditioning and luck, but very few players have never sat on the sidelines with bumps and bruises or taken a personal day. On Tuesday, Witten’s amazing run nearly came to an end as...

LeBron James says he let his teammates down in the Finals last year

LeBron James has never been shy about patting himself on the back after a great performance. If LeBron did his job during a win or a loss, he’s going to let you know about it. When the Heat lost to the Mavericks in the Finals last year, LeBron’s first instinct was to attack his haters and basically defend himself. He later backed off and said he wasn’t satisfied with his performance...
