Kings’ McLemore showing improvement in ballhandling skills

With 8:23 to play in the third quarter Monday night, Kings guard Ben McLemore made a very meaningful play in a game that didn’t count. An assist in a preseason game isn’t significant, but it’s how McLemore pulled it off that excites Kings coaches. McLemore grabbed a missed shot by San Antonio forward Boris Diaw and pushed the ball upcourt, finishing the break with a bounce...

Former Warriors coach Mark Jackson at a time when the team is negotiating a contract extension for Klay Thompson said he expects the guard will ultimately receive a maximum-salary contract.

Predators' Filip Forsberg among top NHL rookies

The Filip Forsberg factor on the Predators' scoresheet is evident through the first six games this season. He's second among NHL rookies in scoring (1 goal, 4 assists) and has played well enough to be moved back to the top line with center Mike Ribeiro and winger James Neal. "Mike is a really good passer and Neal is a pure-goal scorer," Forsberg said. "I...

Andre Ellington carrying weight of Cardinals offense as feature back

At this time last year, the Cardinals were limiting Andre Ellington's playing time because they didn't think he could survive the pounding of a heavy workload on game days. This year, they are limiting Ellington's practice time so he's healthy enough to take on a heavy workload on game days. That's how much Ellington has come to mean in one year's time....

Bengals DC: Burfict must change tackling technique

Bengals defensive coordinator Paul Guenther sounded frustrated on Wednesday as he talked about how he has implored linebacker Vontaze Burfict to tackle with his head up to avoid continually hurting himself. Burfict was knocked out of Sunday's game at Indianapolis late in the first quarter due to a neck injury and didn't return. He did practice on Wednesday, but was on the...

Bills seek to plug leaks, cut down on Orton’s sacks

Kyle Orton has been sacked 13 times in only three starts for the Buffalo Bills. Six came in last Sunday’s one-point victory against the Minnesota Vikings. Such a total typically shows up in the stat line of the quarterback on the losing end, as was the case with the five times the Vikings’ Teddy Bridgewater was dumped. It’s an ominous trend, especially as the Bills prepare...

Lingering ankle injury frustrates Bucs DE Johnson

The tip of the spear has not been sharp. And the right edge has a nick in it, one that’s been there almost since the spear was pulled from its sheath. Michael Johnson doesn’t like to talk about it. Neither do his coaches. No one wants to make excuses for a sub-par start by the right defensive end brought in to hone the Buccaneers’ pass rush and turn it back into a weapon...

Phillies' A.J. Burnett likely to return for 2015

At times during 2014 it sounded like the struggling A.J. Burnett would call it a career after this season. But now, over three weeks since the regular season ended, Phillies GM Ruben Amaro now expects to have the veteran back for 2015. Burnett, who turns 38 in January, has a mutual option worth $15 million for next season. If the Phillies decline it, he would have to turn down a...

Gruden avoiding mistakes of 2013 in handling Griffin rehab

If you were in Washington in 2013, you remember the circus atmosphere that surrounded the return of Robert Griffin III from his knee injury. There was the “all in for Week 1” marketing campaign, the passive-aggressive back-and-forths between Griffin and coach Mike Shanahan, the ESPN special on the rehab process, and Shanahan’s decision to relent and allow Griffin to play in...

Watch out for Ryan Tannehill

Ever since Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin kinda sorta threatened to bench him, Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill has looked like a new man. I don't know if Philbin's words truly inspired him to play better or not, but I can say for sure that a subtle new offensive direction has helped him tremendously. Now, Tannehill looks a lot more like Alex Smith than Aaron Rodgers...

Washington should only start backup quarterbacks

Washington's quarterback problem isn't a "problem" so much as it is a condition. It is a gene that has expressed itself throughout the Dan Snyder era, and it can't be fixed just like a person cannot change what is innate to himself without major reconstructive surgery. The easier option is to learn to deal with your condition, and in Washington's case, that...

Bevell disappointed Harvin failed in Seattle

Conflicts and fisticuffs might be the lasting legacy of wide receiver Percy Harvin's abbreviated run with the Seattle Seahawks, and the one coach who had previous experience with Harvin as a pro with the Vikings was not pleased with the results. Offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell expected to draw the best out of Harvin, coaxing the type of play -- long gains after the catch...

Preseason is no time to judge offensive output, but Cleveland Cavaliers power forward Kevin Love is ready for more touches. Specifically, he wants the ball in the paint more frequently.

Ronaldo makes $1 billion Real Madrid release clause seem justifiable

Look closer at the pictures of Cristiano Ronaldo's goal celebration at Anfield and you glimpse a quite astonishing sight. No, not his graceful knee-slide, choreographed perfectly for the lenses around the corner flag, but the expressions on the faces of the Liverpool fans around him. All of them, to a man, conveying a stunned blankness, with nary a flicker of opprobrium. Only...
