BOSTON — Paul Pierce gave Jason Collins his game ball, everybody clapped and that was pretty much that.

But for Collins, the gesture...

Dirk Nowitzki Takes on Worthy Opponent in 1-on-1 Mini Basketball Game at Children’s Hospital (Video)

The two talked some hoops, but their relationship quickly extended beyond small talk, as a pickup game of 1-on-1 mini basketball suddenly broke out. Nowitzki, who stands at 7-feet...

As is often the case in Los Angeles, the stars come out when it’s Showtime.

Chad Johnson Three-Year-Old Sex Tape Clip Hits Internet Tuesday

For once Chad Johnson isn’t looking for publicity. Last we heard from the man formerly known as Ochocingo, he was purchasing a sweet pair of Back to the Future-inspired shoes — we’re not sure whether they actually lace themselves, however.

Ed Reed is generally known as one of the most imposing players in the NFL. The free safety has earned a reputation over the years as a defensive force, an eight-time Pro Bowl selection and former defensive player of the year. So, perhaps he doesn’t want his competition seeing his softer side. Back on Dec. 2, the evening of a 23-20 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, Reed and his Ravens...

Kobe rocks the fur to Christmas game

The NBA has taken to the world of fashion like no other professional sports league in America. For whatever reason, basketball stars just seem to love playing dress up, practically killing the hipster frames trend for everyone else in the process.

Celtics Capitalize on Favorable Matchups Against Nets to Begin Holiday Road Trip With Win

Nothing is ever promised, but for all the Brooklyn Nets’ improvements in the last year and a half, they figured to remain a reliable victim for the Celtics entering this season. Even after two meetings and two Celtics’ losses, all the ingredients were there to make the Nets a match made in heaven for Boston.

Patrick Chung Making Most of Expanded Role on Defense With Return to Playmaking Ways

At one time, just last year even, Patrick Chung was seen as a building block in the Patriots’ secondary. Those opinions quickly shifted this season, as Chung found himself to be the odd man out of the starting lineup at safety and even out of the defensive rotation all together.
