Kevin Durant Wishes To Separate Himself From "The Machine," But Plugs Into It Daily

J.R. Moehringer has a rich profile of Kevin Durant, in the middle of his Achilles rehab, up at the Wall Street Journal today. The new Brooklyn Net drains deep threes in a swimming pool, explains the decay of his relationship with Oklahoma City, details the purported offensive limitations of the Golden State Warriors, and lays out the thought process that led him to New York. 

Durant also lets...

Tennessee WR Who Joked About Upset Loss To Georgia State Suddenly No Longer On Team

Tennessee WR Who Joked About Upset Loss To Georgia State Suddenly No Longer On Team

The Tennessee Volunteers dropped their first college football game of the season, 38-30, to Georgia State, a Sun Belt team that went 2-10 last season. The crowd was openly booing, and there’s already been a players-only meeting, so everyone in the program’s pretty on edge. With all that considered, it was probably a bad idea for receiver Jordan Murphy to try and find humor in the pain.

After...

Magic Johnson Is Doing Lists [Updates]

Magic Johnson Is Doing Lists [Updates]

It has long been known that Magic Johnson quit his job with the Lakers so he could be free to tweet the most inoffensive takes imaginable without running afoul of the NBA’s tampering rules. But since retiring from his semi-retirement, he’s reached a brand-new level of old-guy social media usage—naming old movies and bragging about vacations. Granted, reading this Hall of Famer’s timeline is...

Barstool Sports Employees Organize To Smooch Their Boss's Ass

Barstool Sports Employees Organize To Smooch Their Boss's Ass

Prompted by The Ringer’s unionization, Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy, whose site uses the tagline “By the common man, for the common man,” has spent a lot of his time yesterday and today coming out as a big anti-union guy. This was a predictable shtick from the guy who sold MAGA hats and yuks it up with Tucker Carlson, but what was actually disheartening was the sight of his employees...

Curt Schilling Once Again Threatens To Run For Office

Curt Schilling Once Again Threatens To Run For Office

Curt Schilling, former major-league pitcher and World Series hero who squandered away so much goodwill that the Red Sox no longer want anything to do with him, has for the umpteenth time floated the idea of running for office. What makes this time different is that Donald Trump gave him a signal boost.

Schilling has repeatedly threatened to run for Senate in Massachusetts, and in 2016...

Jim Breuer And Barstool Sports Chuckleheads Yuk It Up Over Racist Joke About Mets Pitchers

How about those freakin’ Mets, eh? Their relievers stink! They’re bums! Those guys are probably losing games on purpose because of the damn Mexican drug cartel!

Hm, my delivery’s not coming through on this one. Maybe it’ll land better if Jim Breuer, actor and Mets fan, tells the joke with an accent on a Barstool Sports radio show as two white guys laugh like it’s the funniest thing they’ve...

British Man Arrested For Racist Tweet About Mohamed Salah

A 32-year-old Englishman was arrested this morning on suspicion of committing a hate crime for sending a tweet that, according to the Liverpool Echo, included “racist slurs and pictures” of Liverpool’s Egyptian forward, Mohamed Salah.

The specific language used in the tweet isn’t clear, since it has since been deleted, but the talk on social media seems to indicate that the photo depicted an...

Uh Oh: This Meaningless NBA Ranking Has Kobe Bryant Fans, The Biggest Losers In The World, Up In Arms

Uh Oh: This Meaningless NBA Ranking Has Kobe Bryant Fans, The Biggest Losers In The World, Up In Arms

In an effort to fill space in the period of the year when nothing’s going on in the world of basketball, NBA.com released its All-Decade teams for the 2010s era. Kobe Bryant was placed on the third All-Decade team, and this caused Kobe Bryant fans, possibly the most wretched group of people affiliated with anything related to pro basketball—excluding the Knicks—to get a little grumpy over...

The internet shared a chuckle over the weekend at the expense of actor Robbie Amell, who in a viral clip from the 2015 movie The DUFF appeared to have no actual idea how to throw a football, in a scene where he is meant to be playing a star high school quarterback. Have a look at this mess:

Numbers Defeat Florida State In Out-Of-Conference Matchup

Numbers Defeat Florida State In Out-Of-Conference Matchup

What the fresh hell’s going on here?

There are four days until “Noles football” starts, but because some dingus put a player in a No. 15 jersey next to the actual number, it seems that the season won’t actually kick off for 154 days, which is December 30. Or is it 15 multiplied by 4, and the jersey is acting as parentheses? You know how college football algebra can get. Presumably the tweet is...

Amid Trade Rumors, Marcus Stroman's Twitter Is Driving Everyone A Little Nuts

Amid Trade Rumors, Marcus Stroman's Twitter Is Driving Everyone A Little Nuts

Marcus Stroman is going somewhere. The Blue Jays starter is having an excellent season, putting up a 3.18 ERA for a woebegone Toronto team in the first half and earning his first all-star election. He’s also still got another arbitration-eligible year left, making him an attractive trade deadline target for: just about every good team.

Stroman knows he’s gone, saying he’s “come to terms” with...

Does Jared Dudley Control The Defense With His Communication And Tell His PGs What Plays To Run By Seeing The Flow Of The Game And Who Needs Shots? Is There A Reason Why He's Always Atop The Plus-Minus Of His Team, Is It The Little Things, Screen To Get Guys Open Boxing Out, If I Only Knew?

Does Jared Dudley Control The Defense With His Communication And Tell His PGs What Plays To Run By Seeing The Flow Of The Game And Who Needs Shots? Is There A Reason Why He's Always Atop The Plus-Minus Of His Team, Is It The Little Things, Screen To Get Guys Open Boxing Out, If I Only Knew?

Jared Dudley was a solid pickup for the Lakers in free agency, but I had some questions lingering in my mind. Just the other day, in fact, I was folding some laundry and wondering whether he’s capable of controlling a defense with communication, telling a point guard what plays to run by seeing the flow of the game and who needs the shots, doing the little things, screening to get guys open...

Men's Pro Teams Express Support For USWNT By Reminding Everyone That Guys Also Play Sports

Twitter user Malinda has done excellent work curating a delightfully ill-advised collection of nearly identical tweets sent from the accounts of men’s pro sports teams, all of which attempted to express support for the USWNT while also making sure that nobody is in danger of forgetting that dudes play sports, too.

The Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Angels, Cleveland Browns, Houston...

Dick Vitale Breaks Huge NBA Trade, Walks It Back, Probably Misread A Tweet

Dick Vitale Breaks Huge NBA Trade, Walks It Back, Probably Misread A Tweet

This afternoon, ESPN basketball broadcaster Dick Vitale praised the New Orleans Pelicans for flipping the fourth pick in the NBA Draft for Indiana Pacers center Myles Turner. The alleged trade also somehow involved the Atlanta Hawks, who have the 10th pick.

It’s tough to parse Dickie V’s tweet, but it seems the trade involves the Pelicans flipping the fourth pick for the eighth and 10th...

On Thursday afternoon, WWE ambassador and creative team member Dana Warrior, tweeted a pro-LGBTQ+ pride message, stressing that she “believe[s] in equality, education, awareness, and this simple fact: love wins... Always!!” In and of themselves, the words would be fine, but because Warrior is best known as the widow of noted insane dick and towering bigot The Ultimate Warrior , her words...

O.J. Simpson Has Logged On

When an unverified Twitter account with the name TheRealOJ32 posted a video of the former, uhh, Bills running back announcing his entrance into the Twitter world, I’ll admit that I wasn’t 100% convinced that it was real. Even when I decided to quickly share it on this site, there was a small part of me that thought I had fallen for someone getting Simpson to do one of those personalized clips...

All NFL Training Camp Tweets Are Bad Except For These

All NFL Training Camp Tweets Are Bad Except For These

Training camp Twitter is an annoyance. I don’t care who looks good out there or who is seeing reps or what’s going on in blurry cellphone photos taken from 70 yards away. I wish beat writers could just give it a rest. But if they have to tweet, it should be about badly thrown balls going where they don’t belong. It is the only good genre of training camp tweet:

Do more tweets like these,...
