Kevin Garnett Thanks Philly Hecklers For Putting ‘Little Kick In My Juice’

Kevin Garnett is thankful for hecklers this year. The Brooklyn Nets were all too close to losing to the worst team in the NBA on Tuesday night, but some inspiration from an unlikely source ultimately saved them from an embarrassing defeat. The Nets held a measly two-point lead over the Philadelphia 76ers with under a minute remaining when Garnett stepped up and drained a 19-foot...

Bill Belichick Was Right: No Reason To Compare Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers

The last thing New England Patriots fans probably want to recall, now coming off seven straight wins, is the team’s disappointing start to the season.

Plano East-John Tyler Still Among Wildest Football Games Ever (Video)

On Nov. 26, 1994, John Tyler High School held a 24-point lead over Plano East late in the fourth quarter of Texas’ 5A state semifinals. What happened next remains improbable to this day.
