This dude LaMelo Ball has to be the worst person imaginable to play with pic.twitter.com/QGsUPLha6w — NBA All Access (@nballaccess) May 28, 2017 This compilation video of LaMelo Ball lowlights from Saturday’s 52-point Big Ballers drubbing at the hands of the Compton Magic has been making the rounds. It shows LaMelo taking one ill-advised shot after another, and missing them badly. It’s striking imagery for two reasons: 1) LaMelo Ball is supposed to be good, no?, and 2) his older b...
Tiger Woods, who was arrested for DUI this morning in Florida, released the following statement: Statement from Tiger Woods: pic.twitter.com/XzlESOGOxK — Jason Sobel (@JasonSobelESPN) May 29, 2017 Just about everything in this statement is in dispute with this report from TMZ this morning: Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … cops spotted Woods “driving erratically, all over the road” when they pulled him over. We’re told the officer smelled alcohol on Woods’...
Bryce Harper, the 2nd best hitter in baseball, is not afraid to mix it up, as evidenced by these punches he was throwing at the Giants during a Memorial Day melee in San Francisco. Harper is Top 10 in the National League in batting average, tied for 1st in homers, 5th in RPI, 3rd in OBP and tied for 2nd in WAR and he’s out here throwing fists much respect. This was awesome. They both connected pic.twitter.com/9M9ANsAt4W — John Middlekauff (@JohnMiddlekauff) May 29, 2017 Bryce Ha...
Frank Deford passed away on Monday at 78 years old. The legendary sportswriter spent more than 50 years as a contributing writer to Sports Illustrated, penning some of the greatest features this industry has seen. Quite simply, he was a giant in the sports world and will never be replaced. Deford graduated from Princeton in 1962 and started his career doing research for Sports Illustrated. He worked for CNN and was also a key contributor to HBO’s Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel, while conti...

Canadians Milos Raonic and Françoise Abanda will be advancing to the second round of the 2017 French Open after an impressive start in Paris on Monday. Despite suffering from a fever last week, Raonic came out strong in his opener against Steve Darcis – beating the Belgian tennis player in straight sets. All Raonic needed was just 90 minutes to get past his opponent by scores of 6-3, 6-4, 6-2, hitting a total of 44 winners. This continues Raonic’s notable track record at Grand Slams, havin...
Your browser does not support iframes. Alex Jones of the Greensboro Grasshoppers will likely tell the story about a home run he hit in 2017 for many years to come. It will be met with great skepticism. Luckily, there will be video evidence to corroborate the wild tale of a deep fly ball deflecting off of two Kannapolis Intimidators before clearing the fence. Call it the Double Canseco if you will. Perhaps the doubters will feel bad about doubting Alex Jones. Then again, maybe not.

The Warriors are the first undefeated team in the NBA postseason in 16 years, they’re heavy favorites against the Cavaliers in the Finals, and they’ve got arguably the greatest NBA roster of all-time, with four All-Stars 29 years or younger. But here’s Kevin Love on whether or not Cleveland is an underdog in this series: “The whole underdog thing is funny to me, because, yeah, at the end of the day we are defending our title. We’re trying to repeat, which is so hard...
Kyle Busch is not surprised by anything.#MicDrop #NASCAR #CocaCola600 pic.twitter.com/pq932ISkMX — FOX: NASCAR (@NASCARONFOX) May 29, 2017 Kyle Busch finished second to Austin Dillon in Sunday’s Coca-Cola 600 and was very, very down in the dumps following the race. It looked like he was suppressing tears as he was asked if Dillon’s victory came as a surprise. Busch picked his nose and managed to say, “I’m not surprised by anything. Congratulations.” Then he...
Things got heated in the Midwest League on Sunday night as the West Michigan Whitecaps and Dayton Dragons engaged in a benches-clearing brawl. And, unlike most baseball fights, this one was for a very good reason. West Michigan shortstop Danny Pinero clearly and unnecessarily stepped on the leg of Dayton’s Jose Siri after a stolen base in the sixth inning. Then, as the teams battled with traditional pushing, shoving and punching, a Whitecaps player came in and threw a baseball into the sc...

Three gold, a silver and bronze. Canadians left the FINA diving Grand Prix in Madrid with a total of five podium finishes. Pamela Ware set the tone on Friday by climbing to the top of the Grand Prix podium. The Rio 2016 Olympian was victorious in the 3 meter event, scoring of 301.35 to finish in front of American Maria Coburn (295.70) and Dutch diver Inge Jensen (295.60). Earlier this season Ware picked up a bronze medal in Gatineau, at the second stop of the circuit. Ware’s silver me...
Deshone Kizer was expected to sit for at least a year when the Cleveland Browns selected him with the 52nd pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, but that would apparently be news to the Browns. Apparently, Cleveland is going to give Kizer every chance to win its starting quarterback job this fall. Mary Kay Cabot reports that head coach Hue Jackson follows Kizer everywhere he goes on the practice field and is pushing the 21-year-old to get better with every rep. The Notre Dame product has been getting extr...
Memorial Day weekend is upon us. There was a time that this weekend, corresponding with the unofficial start of summer and schools around the country being out, was a huge movie weekend. It has traditionally been a weekend of big budget sequels, action movies, comedies, and family favorites. (There hasn’t, however, been a movie that finished Top 7 in gross earnings since 2000). On the other hand, it hasn’t been a weekend for critics’ favorites, with few exceptions. Of the 58 mo...
Rio 2016 decathlon bronze medallist Damian Warner, claimed his second straight and third career Hypo-Meeting title in Gotzis, Austria.

Manny Ramirez is chugging along for the Kochi Fighting Dogs in the The Shikoku Island League Plus baseball league for Japan, where he’s reportedly hitting .460 with 20 RBIs in 63 at-bats. The crowd went wild for this home run; multiple angles show his swing is still as sweet as ever.
