  • These guys have a lot left to prove. The 2018 NBA Draft has come to a close, and as always, there’s plenty of talent left on the board. We’ve seen Wesley Matthews, Jeremy Lin, Yogi Ferrell, J.J. Barea and so many others find a niche, or even a starting spot in the NBA without hearing their name called on draft night. Teams will try their hand at these talents in the following weeks and at summ...

  • The second son in the Big Baller clan went undrafted on Thursday. Will he go to Summer League? LiAngelo Ball, the beleagured middle child of the (in)famous Ball family of Chino Hills, went unselected in the 2018 NBA Draft on Thursday. This is not particularly surprising. Ball was a UCLA recruit, likely on account of the sought-after status of his older (Lonzo) and younger (LaMelo) brothers. H...

  • The future of the NBA begins with the 2018 draft. On Thursday night, 29 teams will continue their plot to dethrone the Golden State Warriors and claim a title of their own. Big men are the focus of this year’s draft. With Duke’s pair in Marvin Bagley III and Wendell Carter Jr., Arizona’s Deandre Ayton, Texas’ Mo Bamba and Michigan State’s Jaren Jackson Jr., there’s a flock of potential unicor...

  • Here’s everything you need to know about Porter’s injury that caused him to slide in the NBA Draft. Michael Porter Jr., one of the nation’s best NBA prospects, suffered a back injury in the opening two minutes of his college basketball season that cost him all but two games, and required surgery he hasn't yet fully recovered from. Less than a week before the draft, he even canceled a workout i...

  • On Thursday, the Clippers drafted Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Jerome Robinson, doubling down on Jerry West’s scouting acumen. If somebody told Clippers fans prior to tonight that they’d be trading one of their picks on draft night, dive bars all over Los Angeles would be filled to the brim with well-lubricated comedy writers, day-drinking and daydreaming about the Kawhi Leonard era. The Clipp...

  • The Houston Rockets have created an offensive system and identity based nearly exclusively on taking shots from either right at the rim or from super far out. Led by James Harden (and a whole bunch of other dudes who could hit threes), they essentially eschewed everything in between -- and it worked! Until it didn't.

  • The goal given up to Croatia revealed the biggest problems in this team. Coming into this World Cup, there were plenty of question marks surrounding this Argentina team. They had the always brilliant Lionel Messi, and a brilliant striker in Sergio Aguero, but the rest of the team? There were questions about depth in midfield, sure, but the biggest unknowns surrounded their defense and goalkeep...

  • The reigning Stanley Cup champion heads to another needy franchise. The NHL’s highest-profile free agent coach and the only team in the league with a coaching vacancy are making an extremely logical move. On Thursday, the New York Islanders announced they’d struck a deal with Barry Trotz to take over as the team’s next head coach. Trotz was one of the hottest names to ever hit the NHL’s open c...

We’ll be updating this post throughout the day and throughout the draft. So keep this tab open and refresh it every hour or so.

  • Howard says he wants to go somewhere where he can help a team win. But is there a market for his services? After the Charlotte Hornets traded Dwight Howard to Brooklyn one day before the 2018 NBA Draft, the former all-star center doesn’t even want to board the plane. According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Howard has requested a contract buyout, which would allow him to become an unrestricted...

  • Colin Cowherd should’ve known Mayfield wouldn’t take half-baked criticism lying down. Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield plays with a gigantic chip on his shoulder. So Fox Sports’ Colin Cowherd probably should’ve known Mayfield wasn’t going to take criticism sitting down during an interview Thursday. Especially when it was half-baked, lazy criticism made in bad faith. Baker Ma...

  • The game is changing on paper, but I’m not sure if it’s radically different on the field. From 1980 through 1985, Nolan Ryan pitched his home games in the Astrodome and thrived. He was in his 30s, but we all know he had another decade left in his arm, and other than the occasional injury, this was one of the better stretches in a Hall of Fame career. During these years, the all-time strikeout ...

Much of the attention has been focused on Howard’s shift slide to [motions with hands] all of this, such as Kristian Winfield’s piece on Dwight’s value never being lower. There’s also the amusing conclusion of the ...

  • It was so nearly cool, right up until it wasn’t. Iran lost to Spain yesterday in their World Cup group match, but before they fell 1-0, there was a brief dream that something beautiful was going to happen. It was the final minute of added time, and Milad Mohammadi had a chance to fire in a throw in, have a teammate get his head on the ball, and Iran would have a chance to shock the world and g...

Day 8 sees two teams in action who are riding high off important results in their first round of play, plus a major star seeking redemption from a poor showing in his first outing of the tournament.

  • Argentina will try to find its top form Thursday when it faces current Group D leader Croatia, with the sportsbooks setting Lionel Messi and company as betting favorites. Argentina has not been sharp over the last calendar year with only one win and four draws in its last six competitive games for a record of 1-4-1 over that stretch. Lionel Messi will try to lead his side to a full three point...

  • It’s finally draft day. This is our final mock draft. At long last, the 2018 NBA Draft has arrived. Outside of Arizona center Deandre Ayton going No. 1 to the Phoenix Suns, there remains so much uncertainty throughout the top-10 on the day of the draft. The Sacramento Kings — arguably the league’s most unpredictable franchise — hold the keys to the draft at No. 2. Their decision will set off a...

  • Best Home Run Derby participant ever. The league has had some trouble getting top players to participate in this year’s Home Run Derby, with stars like Mookie Betts, J.D. Martinez, and Aaron Judge declining to join in on the fun way in advance of when they even would have been asked. A very emphatic “no thanks, really ... no.” So the league is hoping for excitement to come from other sources...

  • Way to go, bud. Good stuff. Everything is stupid and nothing matters. Iran scored a goal against Spain during their World Cup match on Wednesday. The goal tied the game, 1-1, and gave huge underdogs Iran a chance to steal three points off giants Spain. Or, at least that’s what we all thought. Until the referees had to ruin everything by correctly calling it offside. You might be slightly confu...

They were not. The Browns became just the second team in NFL history to finish a season 0-16, and Jackson lived up to a promise he never really made by jumping into Lake E...

  • They can be the greatest show on Earth, but also the most frustrating. Be careful what you wish for. At one point this season, the Angels were starting Willie Mays in his prime, Ozzie Smith 2.0, and some weird, freaky Carl Yastrzemski/John Smoltz hybrid who could DH or dominate on the mound. Just for good measure, they also had one of baseball’s greatest all-time players setting personal miles...
