Report: Clippers packed for Conference Finals before Game 7

By Jason Rowan Practically speaking, it probably made a lot of sense for the Los Angeles Clippers to plan ahead for a lengthy road trip ahead of the team’s trip to Texas for a Game 7 showdown against the Houston Rockets. But that doesn’t mean the reports that the team packed as if it would be leaving Houston and heading straight to Oakland for Games 1 and 2 of the Western Conference...

By Jason Rowan An awkwardly surreal scene played out when a reporter asked Kyrie Irving about the way in which LeBron James serves as a father figure for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

WATCH: Bryce Harper is so hot, touch him and feel the burn

By Jason Rowan Bryce Harper has enjoyed such a torrid stretch at the plate in May that he probably is dreading the notion that the month is nearing its end. In fact, the Washington Nationals slugger is so red-hot right now his teammates jokingly acted as if the mere act of touching him could cause damage. During his postgame interview on the field following Washington’s 10-5...

Indianapolis Colts defensive lineman Arthur Jones recently got himself a brand new Corvette. Sadly, due to the fact that he is 6-foot-3 and weights 337 pounds, the only thing Jones could do is stand beside it. Because he’s far too large of a man to fit in such an itty-bitty vehicle.

Mettenberger: Starting QB job will be 'a fight to the death'

By Jason Rowan Zach Mettenberger can read the writing on the wall. With the Tennessee Titans drafting Marcus Mariota with the second overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, his hold on the starting quarterback job with the team is not only in jeopardy, Mettenberger is enjoying nothing more than “lame duck” status and arguably is only serving as a seat-warmer until the rookie gets...
