  • James Harden says 'it's personal' between him and 'arrogant' ref Scott Foster
    It was another eventful game between the Houston Rockets, the Los Angeles Lakers and referee Scott Foster on Thursday night.

Harden managed to score 30 points before he fouled out late in the fourth quarter, bringing his streak of games with 30 points or more to 32, but he was livid with Foster's officiating. More

  • 2 Baseball Players Named Brady Feigl Take DNA Tests To See If They're Related

  • Rumor emerges of Russell Wilson eventually joining the Giants
    Assuming that this is enough to get Wilson to change teams, that he'd want to play for the Giants, and that the Giants would want him, it's something that he could force, sooner or later. PFT explained last year when reporting that Wilson wasn't inclined in the aftermath of a flurry of quarterback deals to sign an extension but instead to play things out on a year-to-year basis, Kirk Cousins-style. If Wilson is willing to bear the year-to-year injury risk and able to say no to any and all long-term offers the Seahawks make, he eventually will force the Seahawks into some very tough decisions.

  • Luka Doncic and LeBron James' rookie seasons compared
    Luka Doncic has been likened to LeBron James and the duo's rookie numbers certainly show the Dallas Mavericks sensation and the Los Angeles Lakers superstar are comparable at this stage of the Slovenian's career. It was Dwyane Wade who said 19-year-old Doncic's passing ability was "LeBron James-like" after facing the Mavs with the Miami Heat last week. Doncic, the third overall pick in last year's draft, is the clear frontrunner for the Rookie of the Year award, a prize James took home in 2003-04 when he was a teenager playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Their most promising drive late in the fourth quarter ended when quarterback Jared Goff threw a pass that was intercepted by Patriots cornerback Stephon Gilmore. More

  • Details on the violent death of Dee Gordon's mother shine different light on domestic abuse in MLB
    Over the last few years, the precedent was set by then-New York Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman for MLB to take stronger initiatives in addressing domestic violence issues. Since then, the league has put many new procedures in place and implemented programs to help those involved with the sport deal with domestic violence issues of their own. However, we haven't really come to address another facet of domestic and mental abuse issues within the game which have come to light. More
