Images of Giannis Antetokounmpo dunking the ball are often paired with breathless references to Inspector Gadget/Mr. Fantastic/MJ in Space Jam/Stretch Armstrong, to call attention to his lengthy tentacles. But have you considered the possibility that those tentacles look just as wild when he’s just standing there,…

Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan Wolverines went to Rome for reasons that are unknown and uninteresting to me. What I am interested in are the various images of Jim Harbaugh enjoying his vacay that have been shared on social media.

Adrian Peterson’s long exile has ended in New Orleans. After trying very hard to drum up interest—and finding few takers—the former greatest running back in the world will find himself in a timeshare, on a relatively cheap contract.

Quietly flying under the radar in the fitness wearables market is Whoop, a manufacturer of high-end wrist-worn straps that measure data 100 times per second.

After Buster Posey smacked a hard grounder to right field, Dodgers defensive marvel Yasiel Puig launched this throw from the outfield, somehow zinging it straight into the glove of catcher Yasmani Grandal in time to cut down Brandon Belt, who was trying to score from second. Puig’s cannon ended the first inning and…

When the Warriors are hot, there’s nothing you can do. No other team so gleefully tosses their opponents in the trash and sets that trash on fire as the Warriors, and no Warriors run this playoffs has been as violent or as thorough as the incredible first quarter they put together tonight in Portland. They scored the…

While the gates of the Eastern Conference are not exactly wide open, LeBron James’s chokehold on conference supremacy is as weak as it’s been in many years. The Cavaliers’ defense is worryingly porous and even though they just swept the Pacers, the series featured multiple blown leads and every game was close. Most…

A fan taking in a Southern Arkansas Muleriders softball game this afternoon used up all of his coordination to make an incredible snag, stretching to catch a homer from the bed of a pickup truck. Overenthused and underprepared, he promptly toppled headfirst out of said pickup truck.

The four-month gap the Boston and Kiev Majors in Dota 2 has been especially vacuous, as precious few tournaments gave fans a chance to gauge each team’s potential headed into today’s Kiev Major group stage play. After Boston it seemed like TNC Pro Team was in disarray, but Kiev is showing that just might not be true.

The Raptors ripped out of the gates against the Bucks tonight hungry and unafraid to contend with Milwaukee’s imposing length. Giannis Antetokounmpo in particular has menaced the Raps on both ends of the court, but Serge Ibaka had no problem getting around and over him for this smooth jam.

Last year, Chechen dictator Ramzan Kadyrov made his young sons take part in staged MMA fights against other children their age. His sons fought against other 9-, 10-, and 11-year-olds is what resembled a full-on UFC event, which meant small gloves and no protective headgear. He caught heat from Russia’s most famous…

It goes without saying (hey there, Las Vegas Raiders!) that the NFL’s gambling policy is a hypocritical mess. But now that I no longer work for Rupert Murdoch, I can plainly state that every word out of Roger Goodell’s mouth about legalized sports betting for the past 20 months has been nothing but lip service.

The Patriots have spent the offseason making a flurry of aggressive moves, while basically sitting on their hands with cornerback and Super Bowl 49 hero Malcolm Butler. Butler spent the early part of free agency making eyes at the Saints, but reports now claim a trade with New Orleans is unlikely to happen. The…

Functionally and historically, the sabermetric revolution in baseball is over.
