Nikita Kucherov's Season Is Unlike Any We've Seen In A Long Time Nikita Kucherov's Season Is Unlike Any We've Seen In A Long Time

Zion Williamson Wrecked His Shoe And Also Maybe His Leg [Update]

Well, this is weird as hell. Less than a minute into the much-hyped matchup between UNC and Duke, Zion Williamson appeared to hurt his leg when he tried to plant while he was dribbling. It’s the right leg that got injured, but the left shoe may have gotten the worst of it, as Williamson’s foot just destroyed it as he…

Real Live Wizard Attends Champions League Match

Schalke and Manchester City played themselves a pretty thrilling Champions League match on Wednesday, with a shorthanded City pulling off an unlikely comeback for a 3-2 win.

The St. Louis Blues Have Received A Miracle In The Form Of Some Guy Named Jordan Binnington The St. Louis Blues Have Received A Miracle In The Form Of Some Guy Named Jordan Binnington

Earlier in the season, the St. Louis Blues were a disaster. They had fired head coach Mike Yeo in November, started fighting each other in practice in December, and tried to repair morale by bringing in a puppy. Now, they’ve won 11 in a row, put themselves in playoff position, and have actual hope. Although it’d be…

John Tortorella Insists That Artemi Panarin's Only Out Tonight Because He's Shitting And Puking John Tortorella Insists That Artemi Panarin's Only Out Tonight Because He's Shitting And Puking

Even though the Blue Jackets are holding on to third place in a pretty messy Metropolitan Division, the scuttlebutt around the league is that they’ll be sellers, not buyers at the trade deadline. Artemi Panarin is an unrestricted free agent after this season, and it seems clear that he’s not going to resign with…

Brayden McNabb Got Caught Smirking After He Knocked Andreas Johnsson Out Of The Game

Toronto Maple Leafs forward Andreas Johnsson had to leave Thursday night’s eventual 6-3 win over the Golden Knights in the second period, after what appeared to be an attempt at a knee-to-knee collision from Knights defender Brayden McNabb.

Oh Come On, The Blue Jays Still Won't Commit To Calling Up Vlad Guerrero Jr. Oh Come On, The Blue Jays Still Won't Commit To Calling Up Vlad Guerrero Jr.

The Toronto Blue Jays don’t have much hope for this season, not for as long as AL East peers the Yankees and Red Sox and even the Rays continue to exceed Toronto’s abilities by such a wide margin. But there is one reason to get excited about the Blue Jays in 2019, and his name rhymes with “Rad Wheelbarrow.”…

Who Is Chris Clemons, And Why Does He Score So Many Dang Points? Who Is Chris Clemons, And Why Does He Score So Many Dang Points?

Depending on how charitable you’re feeling, you might think Campbell University senior point guard Chris Clemons is an unholy cross between Isaiah Thomas and James Harden, or just a North Carolina novelty act piling up impressive stats on the fringes of D-I basketball. Playing for a Big South team that isn’t even the…

Josh Okogie Locking James Harden In A Closet Makes For A Satisfying Highlight Josh Okogie Locking James Harden In A Closet Makes For A Satisfying Highlight

The Timberwolves beat the Rockets at home on Wednesday night, 121-111, and even though James Harden led all scorers as usual with 42 points on a nauseating 34 field goal attempts, he was far from unstoppable, as proven by T-Wolves rookie Josh Okogie on a pair of dramatic occasions within a couple minutes of each other.

Joel Embiid Almost Murders Statistician In Quest For Loose Ball

Joel Embiid hustled like hell to get a loose ball in the third quarter of tonight’s 76ers-Knicks game, and he endangered several lives in the process. While Tracy Morgan looked on, the Philly big man hurtled straight over Regina King as he tried to save his team’s possession. But when he cannonballed into the crowd,…

Kevin Knox's Dunk On Ben Simmons Left DeAndre Jordan Stupefied Kevin Knox's Dunk On Ben Simmons Left DeAndre Jordan Stupefied

The Knicks as a franchise have completely packed it in for the rest of the season, but the electrifying rookie Kevin Knox has yet to get the tanking memo. In the second quarter of New York’s likely eventual loss against the 76ers, Knox took a bounce pass in stride from DeAndre Jordan as he sped into the lane and…

Tottenham Grabbed Dortmund's Hair And Smushed Them Face-First Into The Dirt Tottenham Grabbed Dortmund's Hair And Smushed Them Face-First Into The Dirt

Montrezl Harrell Keeps Cussing At Opposing Fans

Los Angeles Clippers forward Montrezl Harrell got fined $25,000 by the NBA today for what the league calls “directing inappropriate language toward a fan.” Anyone bored enough to be watching Clippers-Timberwolves on Monday could hear exactly what the “inappropriate language” was, as Harrell calmly told a spectator,…
