Kyrie Irving Not Expected Back Until January

Kyrie Irving is as talented as they come, but he’s equally as injury-prone. When healthy, you can’t deny his talent, but in his brief career, he’s always had to deal with a physical setback. The most recent one, of course, […]

Verlander Loses No-Hit Bid in Ninth Inning

Justin Verlander has two no-hitters to his credit in his career and flirted with a third this evening vs. the Angels. It’s one thing to lose a no-hitter and it’s another thing entirely to lose one in the ninth inning. […]

Steelers Bring in Mike Vick For a Visit

There are quite a few big names from yesteryear still on the free agent market. Michael Vick tops that list. If he finds a team, he definitely won’t be a starter, but he would be a more than serviceable backup […]

David Stern Being Urged to Run for Mayor of New York

Adam Silver has done so much in his short time as NBA commissioner, that he’s making us quickly forget about David Stern. Out of sight, out of mind. The transition was smooth and seamless. But apparently, the former commish is […]

Eli Manning Want to Be the Highest Paid QB in the NFL

Not only is Eli Manning the only QB to beat Tom Brady in a Super Bowl, but he has done it twice. He probably doesn’t get the credit he deserves and being Peyton Manning’s younger brother doesn’t help either. But […]

Jadaveon Clowney Returns to Practice Following Knee Surgery

Jadaveon Clowney’s career has gotten off to a rough start. Injuries have had him in street clothes more so than a Texans uniform thus far. And he also underwent the dreaded microfracture knee surgery. But he’s back on the field […]

Kevin Durant: “I’m the Best Player in the World”

The “best player it the world” rhetoric is officially beyond old. When fans and media began referring to LeBron James as that a handful of years ago, it was a novelty and wasn’t said as frequently. But now, you can’t […]

Geno Smith Out 6-10 Weeks With Broken Jaw; Punched By Teammate

Prior to yesterday, when we saw Cam Newton fight a teammate, I don’t think we’ve ever seen a starting QB get into a fight at practice. But for the second consecutive day, here we are. The Jets’ Geno Smith will […]

Flip Saunders Diagnosed With Cancer

It takes announcements like this for us to take a step back and realize what’s truly important. Because at certain times, wins, losses and championships don’t even matter. Some form of that is probably what those close to Flip Saunders […]

NFL training camp and preseason can be a scary time as there’s always a fear of injury. It happens every year and it looks like the Texans’s Arian Foster is the first big name to go down. Foster injured his […]

Ray Allen On Being Away From the Game: “I Didn’t Miss it”

We were without Ray Allen on the court last season, but the veteran sharpshooter still isn’t officially retired yet. Maybe he will, maybe he won’t, but he’s leaving it open for a possible return. It’s great to have that kind […]
