Everything you’ve heard from Odell Beckham Jr. about Josh Norman is wrong

When Odell Beckham Jr. says he made 2015 NFL All-Pro cornerback Josh Norman “relevant” thanks to their battle during week 15 of the 2015 season, he sounds like a jilted ex-lover. To watch the footage now, coupled with Beckham’s endless quotes since then (a sign in itself that he was bested that day, like an ex-girlfriend who can’t move on with her life), it becomes obvious...

New stars, old faces, shine at 2016 Gatorade Athlete of the Year Awards

Jayson Tatum and Sydney McLaughlin took home the hardware as they were named Gatorade Male and Female Athletes of the Year for 2016. We were on hand at the L.A.

#SmellEm If You Got ‘Em! All-access at the 2016 ESPYS and after-party

I asked Cam Newton to teach me how to dab and this was his response. In the first 15 minutes at the official after-party of the 2016 ESPYS, I shook Richard Sherman’s hand, met former Lakers’ player/coach Byron Scott and told him he got a raw deal after his recent firing, and got a selfie with former Detroit Pistons “bad boy” John Salley. As part of the launch for two new...

Could you stop Landon Donovan from scoring a goal? These people tried outside a Buffalo Wild Wings

How surreal would it be to go to your local Buffalo Wild Wings for some food and have Landon Donovan, the greatest male soccer player in U.S. history, stop you at the entrance and challenge you to a game of one-on-one? Recently, at a Buffalo Wild Wings in Los Angeles, the above scenario played itself out. Would you have the guts to jump in the net and try to stop the all-time leader...

How good with the Warriors be with Kevin Durant?

Kevin Durant has declared his independence and taken his talents to Oakland. He’ll sign a two-year deal with the Golden State Warriors in an attempt to form a super-team and finally win a title. I don’t blame Durant for leaving, it’s his decision, yet I also feel bad for the fans in Oklahoma City. As a Cavs fan I know how they feel. But I am a little confused by this decision...

Rough night for Messi and Argentina

Lionel Messi missed a penalty kick. Argentina lost the Copa America final against Chile. Then Messi announced he’s retiring from the Argentina national team without ever having won a major international title. Wow. That was quite a bad day for Argentina football. Let’s see if Messi eventually let’s the emotions of the moment subside so he can gear up for the 2018 World Cup...

Should Draymond Green be suspended?

Draymond Green has a knack for committed questionable fouls, with many of his kicks and blows somehow finding the groin area of opposing players. The NBA has a knack for letting him get away with it. What will the NBA go now after another Draymond blow to the groin, this one to a Lebron James who was massacred all night long by the Warriors but barely sniffed the free throw line...

Does anyone know what a foul is in the NBA these days?

Lebron James had a rough night last night as the Golden State Warriors took a 3-1 lead over the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals. He settled for too many three-point shots (going 1-5) and seemed way too anxious to pass the ball when he drove to the hoop. His dribbling skills seem to have disappeared and he’s become a turnover machine. As a result, he shied away from trying...

Nike sticks with Maria Sharapova

Tennis start Maria Sharapova was recently hit with a two-year ban by the International Tennis Federation, but Nike is sticking with the sexy Russian player even as other brands have distanced themselves from her. It’s an interesting move by Nike as it’s showing loyalty that might help them with other athletes.

R.I.P. Muhammad Ali

“The Greatest” has passed. Muhammad Ali, one of the icons of the 20th century that transcended sports, died at the age of 74. In his prime, Ali was an incredible fighter. He was also an entertainer with his original rhymes and hysterical antics with Howard Cosell, though there was also a dark side with his “gorilla” taunts of Joe Frazier. He stood up to the US government...

Can Cavs stop the Warriors?

This series is a huge opportunity for Lebron James. Many are contemplating what will be said of him if he goes 2-5 in the NBA Finals, but he will truly enhance his legendary career if he can bring a championship to the City of Cleveland. The oddsmakers have the Warriors as the favorites, but most experts expect a close series. Frankly, if the Cavs play as well as they did in the...

Thunder blow golden opportunity

The sleeping giant has awakened. The Oklahoma City Thunder were poised to pull of an epic upset as they sat on a 3-1 lead on the 73-win Golden State Warriors. That now seems like a long time ago. The Thunder had an incredible opportunity to close out the series last night as they nursed a lead in the fourth quarter, but Klay Thompson went wild with 11 three-pointers, which seemed...

Thunder take Game 1 from the Warriors

Not everyone was as wrong as Skip Bayless on this series. I replied right away to his silly tweet as it was clear after the San Antonio series that Oklahoma City was a team to be reckoned with. Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook now have a team around them with some size, so OKC has length along with being perhaps the most athletic team in the NBA. Meanwhile, Steph Curry was awfully...

Rougned Odor face punches Jose Bautista

Look at that punch! This altercation between Rougned Odor and Jose Bautista will be played over and over again for years. Bautista can be a bit of a punk, and he certainly got what he deserved after he tried to take out Odor with a hard slide. After the game he tried to say he didn’t try to hurt him and was just sending a message, but I’m sure Odor doesn’t give a damn about...

Well, that still may be true, but the sudden resurgence of Kyrie Irving plus the excellent play by Kevin Love may be changing that...

The Biggest Doping Scandals in Sports History

Sports are meant to measure the physical fitness and skill of the players. That was their original purpose, and that should be their purpose today. But the widespread use of performance enhancers has made the competition unfair. Athletes training properly can lose to people who achieved their fitness through injecting or ingesting various drugs. Which is much like when you find...

Is Las Vegas really in the picture for the Raiders?

The Raiders to Vegas rumors seem to still be in play, and frankly it makes sense. It seems like the NFL is actually open to the idea. As a Browns fan I always hate to see cities put in a position where they might lose their team, but cities like Oakland and San Diego are being given many opportunities to step to the plate and get a decent stadium deal. This didn’t happened with...

Is Mike Shanahan trying to rehabilitate his image by speaking up now about Robert Griffin III? Shanahan has plenty to answer for, as many of us felt he committed coaching malpractice by letting RGIII take a beating as they implemented the read-option in RGIII’s first season. In many ways that season was a smashing success, but there was a price to pay with those injuries. Of course...
