Jeff Teague Really Confused Evan Turner WIth This Step Back

Jeff Teague sent Even Turner on a fools mission with a nasty step back during the Hawks game one win over the Pacers, and it was nasty. Teague’s step back created a ridiculous amount of space and he finished it off with the jumper. It definitely should give you a flashback to what Allen Iverson did to Tyronn Lue back in the 2001 Finals. Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

Delino DeShields Jr. Posts Disturbing Photo After Being Hit By Fastball

This picture is certainly not for the faint of heart. Delino DeShields Jr., a minor leaguer for the Houston Astros’ Corpus Christi Hooks, was hit by a 90MPH fastball during Friday’s game. It’s being reported that the former eighth pick in the 2010 draft suffered a broken check bone. If there’s any upside to DeShields’ injury, at least it didn’t hit him in the nose. ...
