Ben Simmons Delivered An Extra Defender To Jimmy Butler And Then Went Full-Jay Cutler In Loss To Thunder

The end of the Thunder-Sixers game was an amazing example of some back-and-forth bone-headedness that could only be accomplished with these underachieving franchises.

Charlton Fan Accidentally Kicks His Own Team's Player In The Dick And Balls Trying To Celebrate Game-Winning Goal

In the 93rd minute of the match between Charlton Athletic and Accrington Stanley, the linesman awarded a penalty to Charlton after a shot from midfielder Ben Reeves ricocheted off the hand of a defender in the penalty box. Karlan Grant calmly scored from the spot and the players were understandably jubilant over their…

West Virginia Upsets No. 7 Kansas With Late Go-Ahead Layup For Season's First Conference Win 

Junior Mountaineers guard Jermaine Haley was not only perfect against Kansas on the stats sheet—he shot 5-for-5 from the field for 13 points—he was perfect when his team needed him most. Haley hit the go-ahead layup over tough a Jayhawks defense with less than 10 seconds remaining in regulation to give West Virginia a…

Jake Layman Was God For One Quarter Against The Pelicans

Prior to this season, Jake Layman’s career was mostly associated with a joke that he was on pace to be the greatest scorer in NBA history (per 36 minutes, after two games). Now, it’s more about what he’s actually been able to produce on the court within the confines of his real playing time. Thanks to a combination of…

Marshawn Lynch Endures Patronizing Lectures About Voting From Bill Maher And Barney Frank Marshawn Lynch Endures Patronizing Lectures About Voting From Bill Maher And Barney Frank

Marshawn Lynch appeared as a guest on HBO’s Real Time With Bill Maher to talk about his entrepreneurship work in theory, but ended up discussing a whole other wide range of topics instead. He answered questions about topics like Colin Kaepernick not getting signed and smoking weed, and he also gave a compelling…

League Mourns As Teams Realize DeMarcus Cousins Is Still Pretty Damn Good At Basketball League Mourns As Teams Realize DeMarcus Cousins Is Still Pretty Damn Good At Basketball

Whelp, that was fun while it lasted. The brief period where we could pretend to believe that other teams besides the Warriors had a chance at making a run for an NBA title is officially over after DeMarcus “Boogie” Cousins made his season debut for the Warriors on Friday against the Clippers in a 112-94 win.

Good Things Can Happen When Lonzo Ball Is In Control Good Things Can Happen When Lonzo Ball Is In Control

It’s no secret that the consensus on Lonzo Ball here is that he’s a bad young player. But in the Lakers 138-128 victory over the Thunder, he showed more than a few flashes of not being total ass, and might have proven to coach Luke Walton that the team’s best chance of surviving this LeBron-less period is by running…

Charles Barkley Calls The 76ers "The Stupidest Organization In The History Of Sports" For Allowing An Injured Joel Embiid To Play Against The Pacers  Charles Barkley Calls The 76ers "The Stupidest Organization In The History Of Sports" For Allowing An Injured Joel Embiid To Play Against The Pacers 

Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid was listed as questionable for tonight’s game against the Pacers due to lingering tightness in his back. Despite signs before the game that he was not feeling 100 percent, he played anyways, and the initial returns weren’t great. Embiid started the game 0-for-3 from the field and…

Paul Millsap Can Still Jump, Apparently

The Bulls are taking on the Nuggets in Denver in a game that’s a lot closer than it should be. On the basis of the scoreline alone, it’s hard to tell that one team is the second-best squad in the West by record, and the other is trying hard to bring Zion Williamson onto their team. There are some indicators, however,…

Oklahoma State's Recent Round Of Suspensions Forces Program To Fill Roster Spots With Walk-On Tryouts Oklahoma State's Recent Round Of Suspensions Forces Program To Fill Roster Spots With Walk-On Tryouts

Despite the fact that the team has already played 17 games this season, the Oklahoma State Cowboys are scrambling to add more players to their roster for the remainder of their schedule. Desperate for bodies to fill the bench, the team turned to the student population of OSU, offering walk-on tryouts on eight-hours…

Bobby Portis Accuses Kevin Durant Of Injuring Him On Purpose

In the third quarter of Friday’s game between the Bulls and the Warriors, Bobby Portis attempted to set a screen on Kevin Durant so that Kris Dunn could get to the basket. Durant tried to get past Portis using a swim move—not unlike what a defensive lineman uses to get to a QB—and ended up pulling Portis’s arm, and…

Snoop Dogg Should Call More Hockey Games 

The L.A. Kings brought Snoop Dogg to a home game against the Penguins to drop the ceremonial first puck. Unlike most guests, however, he was allowed to call part of the game too. The results were about as delightfully on-brand as you’d expect.

Saint Joseph's Player Taken Off In Stretcher After Brutal Leg Injury Saint Joseph's Player Taken Off In Stretcher After Brutal Leg Injury

About midway through the first half of Saint Joseph’s match-up against Duquesne on Saturday, Pierfrancesco Oliva drove to the rim looking for a layup. Dukes defender Michael Hughes rose up and blocked the shot, causing Oliva to fall down hard to the floor. The Hawks player immediately grabbed his leg and began…

Blake Griffin Strongly Denies Ignoring Steve Ballmer's Handshake, For Some Reason

Blake Griffin had a solid revenge game against his former team on Saturday. In his first game back to Los Angeles since getting traded to Detroit, he put up 44 points, eight rebounds, five assists and three steals in the 109-104 victory. It even looked like he got a chance to stick it to Clippers owner Steve Ballmer…

Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett’s contract was set to expire after the 2019 season, but Ian Rapoport reports that Jerry Jones will extend it after the playoffs—no matter what happens tonight against the Rams.

Georgetown Freshmen Mac McClung And James Akinjo Come Up Clutch Against Providence

It took two extra periods of play for the Georgetown Hoyas to take down the Providence Friars this afternoon, 96-90. But the home team wouldn’t have gotten to that second overtime in the first place were not for two freshman sinking two clutch shots, including one buzzer-beater, when the Hoyas needed them most.

Northern Kentucky Runs Football-Inspired Inbounds Play To Seal Game Against Rivals Wright State Northern Kentucky Runs Football-Inspired Inbounds Play To Seal Game Against Rivals Wright State

Up three with 11.8 seconds left in the game, the Northern Kentucky Norse ran a creative inbounds play try and get away from Wright State’s attempts at fouling. The home players lined up in what can only be described as a four-receiver set, trips right. The player to the left of the inbounder/quarterback ran a comeback…
