Ty Lawson shakes Kirk Hinrich so bad he falls to the floor (VIDEO)

Denver Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson is often overlooked but is still the same quick, elusive player he’s always been. Kirk Hinrich learned that lesson the hard way in the third quarter of Tuesday night’s Bulls-Nuggets game, when Lawson put him on skates. Lawson set up near the three-point arc and made it look like […]


Sean Payton chews out Rob Ryan on sideline (VIDEO)

The New Orleans Saints defense was supposed to improve in Rob Ryan’s second year as defensive coordinator. But the results show quite the opposite, and point toward regression.

NFL: Green Bay Packers at Minnesota Vikings

Grades for each Packers positional unit in win over Vikings

Wins don’t always come easy, especially when playing a divisional opponent on the road. After back-to-back blowout wins, Green Bay escaped Minnesota with a close victory in a hard-fought game, 24-21.

The Maestro’s crescendo: A tribute to Lionel Messi’s goal-scoring record

The upper-echelon clubs in Europe have some of the best talent in the world on their rosters. But words can’t even describe the players who are literally the best of the best, like Lionel Messi.

Duke’s Justise Winslow jumps over Stanford player and blocks shot (video)

Duke freshman Justise Winslow made the best defensive play of the young season thus far in Saturday night’s game against Stanford.

The Duke small forward jumped over him and swatted […]


Vols fan celebrates touchdown, falls out of stands (video)

But one fan […]

Bill Belichick has high praise for Ndamukong Suh

Detroit Lions All-Pro defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh hasn’t been talked about on social media or made headlines nearly as much as he did in previous years, and that’s a good thing.

When an official tried to get in Jameis Winston’s way in the third quarter of Saturday’s game against Boston College, the Heisman Trophy winner “guided” him to the side.

Tim Duncan trolled Corey Brewer by showing him how to flop (video)

Class was in session on Friday night as Tim Duncan showed Corey Brewer how to properly execute one of the oldest tricks in the books.

Duke assistant goes nuts while giving pregame speech before UNC game (video)

Duke and North Carolina squared off on Thursday night with the Victory Bell trophy on the line. The Blue Devils won last season’s matchup and possessed the trophy heading into the game.

Patrick Peterson: Mike Wallace and DeSean Jackson have ‘crackhead speed’ (video)

Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson is one of the league’s top cornerbacks, and he is often presented with the tough task of shadowing opposing teams’ No. 1 wide receivers.

NFL: Pittsburgh Steelers at Tennessee Titans

Grades for each Pittsburgh Steelers positional unit in win over Titans

Being that cruel and unusual punishment is against the law, Pittsburgh fans must be asking why their favorite team treats them so badly.

They emerged with a 27-24 victory, even […]
