Deion Sanders Shares Emotional Moment With Devin Hester After Game (Video)

When Devin Hester broke Deion Sanders’ NFL record for return touchdowns Thursday night, he paid tribute to his mentor by high-stepping into the end zone. It’s only fitting that Hester broke the record while playing for the Atlanta Falcons, the same team Sanders broke into the league with. It’s also nice that Sanders was present at the Georgia Dome to witness the feat....

Allen Iverson’s ‘Practice’ Rant Turned Into Inspirational Short Film (Video)

Without adding a single word, a new short film shows why Allen Iverson’s infamous “practice” rant was so misguided. Iverson’s words are dubbed over soundless footage of a young boy in Brooklyn trekking to an inner-city court to work on his game.

Report: NBA’s Sleeved Jerseys Still Hated, Are ‘Not Selling Well’

It’s safe to say the NBA’s sleeved jerseys have been one of the least well-received uniform trends in recent memory. They look dumb, players don’t like them and the people who should be buying them — fans who, presumably, would rather not wear a tank top walking around town — aren’t. A buyer for a “well-known chain of sporting good stores” said earlier this week...

Shabazz Napier Makes Wild Trick Shot From Half Court While Seated (Video)

When the Miami Heat drafted Shabazz Napier in June, they knew they were getting an excellent shooter. The Massachusetts native and former UConn Husky shot 40.5 percent from downtown in his final collegiate season and his sharp-shooting abilities were a big reason the Heat used a first-round draft pick on him. That said, it’s doubtful that the Heat believed he would be able to...

Boston Red Sox Should Consider Role Change For Brandon Workman In 2015

Brandon Workman once seemed like a lock for the Red Sox’s 2015 starting rotation. Now, Boston should take a long, hard look at whether the right-hander is better equipped for the bullpen. Workman overcame a shaky first inning Thursday against the Pittsburgh Pirates to toss five frames in which he allowed three runs (two earned) on seven hits. It wasn’t Workman’s worst outing...
