  2. NBA Rumors: Lakers Could Trade Lonzo Ball To Acquire LeBron JamesSun, 17 Jun 2018 01:19:02 GMT
    The NBA offseason is expected to make for a wild summer, and theres a good chance the Los Angeles Lakers will be at the center of it. The Lakers have been tied to a number of players rumored to be changing teams in the coming months, including Paul George, Chris Paul, Kawhi Leonard and of course, LeBron James. While the Purple and Gold have enough salary cap flexibility to bring in a pair of marquee talents, it sounds like their summer goals exceed bringing in two superstars. And in hopes of returning the Lakers to past levels of dominance, current faces of the franchise might be forced to pack their bags. James likely will demand a max contract from whichever team lands him, and to meet all More...

  4. Andre Iguodala told Warriors rookie Jordan Bell to 'stop doing that stupid stuff' during paradeSat, 16 Jun 2018 20:14:54 GMT
    The Golden State Warriors recently won their third title in four seasons, and they celebrated in style back home in Oakland earlier this week. As is the tradition, they were welcomed home with a glorious parade, as people poured into the streets to honor their heroes. The players certainly enjoyed themselves. Nick Young was shirtless and mingling with the crowd, Draymond Green trolled LeBron James and trash-talked Tristan Thompsonand trolled LeBron James with his custom-made Arthur shirt. Meanwhile,Jordan Bell secured some extra alcohol from a fan after running out on his bus. Bell just might have been the MVP of the event for his antics, but apparently it wasn't funny to everyone. His veteran More...
  5. Phil Mickelsons defiant defense of his shocking rule breachSat, 16 Jun 2018 19:31:35 GMT
    Phil Mickelson executed one of the most shocking breaches of the rules and etiquette in recent major-championship history, and the fallout from it is hardly over. That includes for Mickelsons reputation as well as that of the USGA. On the 13th hole of Saturdays third round of the U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills, Mickelson hit a poor bogey putt and went running after it, catching up to it on the other side of the hole before it went down another ridge and off the green. He then hit the moving ball back toward the hole. It missed, and Mickelson took two more putts before holing out. His playing partner, Andrew Beef Johnston, was bowled over. Johnston later called it one of the funniest things More...
  6. Landon Donovan, fellow ex-USMNT stars in war of words over his Mexico supportSat, 16 Jun 2018 23:20:39 GMT
    With the United States Mens National Team having failed to qualify for the World Cup in Russia this summer, one of the most consistent messages U.S.soccer fans have had hammered at them is that they should support Americas other team. That other team, of course, being Mexico the greatest rival of U.S. mens team. Tryfor a moment to imagine,for instance, Sky Sports telling England fans they should root for Germany or France the next time England fail to qualify for a tournament. Or telling Dutch fans to support Germany this summer in the absence of the Oranje, or urging Italy fans to back France. More...
  7. Why Phil Mickelson was not disqualified from the US Open and why other pros think he should have beenSun, 17 Jun 2018 05:00:00 GMT
    Phil Mickelson started the final round of the U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills 14 strokes behind the leaders, but he had become the story of the tournament thanks to a bizarre penalty and a ruling from the USGA that many disagreed with. The incident came on the 13th hole of the third round when Mickelson hit his bogey putt well past the hole and it appeared that it might roll off the green. Rather than wait to see where the ball might end up, Mickelson literally ran after the ball and hit it again as it was still moving. Fox announcer Joe Buck was stunned and momentarily speechless. After the putt, commentator Curtis Strange may have summed it up best as Mickelson was walking off the green with More...
  8. Heres What Shaq Said LeBron James Shouldnt Do For Rest Of NBA CareerSun, 17 Jun 2018 01:20:29 GMT
    Shaquille ONeal knows a thing or two about championships. The Hall of Famer won three straight NBA titles while he was with the Los Angeles Lakers, and another one with the Miami Heat, but he told ESPNs Ian Begley he got greedy toward the end of his career for more.

  9. Source: Trevor Ariza seeking $50-$60 million payday in free agencySat, 16 Jun 2018 12:00:13 GMT
    Aside from the looming contract talks of Clint Capela and Chris Paul, the free agency of veteran forward Trevor Arizas is another issue the Rockets will need to address come July 1.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to speak on the record about Ariza or the Rockets free More...
