Dez Bryant fuels Giants rumors by working out with Odell Beckham Jr. (VIDEO)

The Giants released Brandon Marshall on Thursday, which left a clear void on the team’s depth chart that needs to be filled. That led Giants fans to begin speculating about the team possibly pursuing ex-Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant, who appears motivated to stick it to his former squad by landing with a division rival. Bryant then poured some fuel on the fire by posting a video on Instagram showing him working out with Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. Dez is working out with Odell (via dezbryant/Instagram) pic.twitter.com/lRa7aRdxPV — Sports Illustrated (@SInow) April 20, 2018 Imagine the two lining up...

Sidney Crosby becomes Pens' all-time leader in playoff points after goal (VIDEO)

By: Matt Birch | April 18, 2018 Penguins captain Sidney Crosby has some tough competition, but he’s clearly one of the best players in franchise history — along with teammate Evgeni Malkin, and former greats Mario Lemieux and Jaromir Jagr. The numbers indicate that as well, as Crosby passed Lemieux in total playoff points with a second-period goal in Wednesday’s game. That goal gave Crosby 173 playoff points, which is ridiculous. That’s why he’s the face of the NHL, and, even though some may disagree, he’s still the best hockey player on the planet. NHL, Penguins Read the original...

Eric Bledsoe 'doesn't know who the f–k' Terry Rozier is

By: Matt Birch | April 18, 2018 Terry Rozier has had big shoes to fill, replacing injured point guard Kyrie Irving, but he’s been exceptional in the first two games of the Bucks-Celtics series. In fact, Rozier has been the Celtics’ unofficial MVP thus far, with 46 points on 15-of-32 shooting, as well as 11 assists. But for some reason, Bucks point guard Eric Bledsoe, who Rozier has been eating for breakfast, someone doesn’t know who he is. “Who?” Bledsoe replied when asked about Rozier. “Terry Rozier,” the reporter repeated, which elicited the following response from Bledsoe: “I don’t...

Charles Barkley rips T-Wolves, calls them 'dumbest team' he's ever seen

By: Matt Birch | April 16, 2018 The Timberwolves put up an amazing fight in Sunday’s playoff opener against the Rockets, and gave the fans at Toyota Center plenty to sweat about. They were a missed three-point jumper by Jimmy Butler away from potentially forcing overtime in the 104-101 loss, and that was with a relatively quiet performance by Karl-Anthony Towns, who had only eight points. Minnesota have a lot of positives to take away from the loss, and the way they remained competitive against the No. 1 overall team in the playoffs, in their house. TNT analyst/pot-stirrer Charles...

Jrue Holiday seals Pelicans' win over Trail Blazers with clutch block late

By: Matt Birch | April 15, 2018 The Pelicans got off to an early lead and controlled Saturday’s playoff matchup against the Trail Blazers throughout the contest, but they almost blew it late. Luckily for them, they have Jrue Holiday, and he came up huge down the stretch. The Pelicans were clinging to a three-point lead with roughly nine seconds remaining in the game, when Pat Connaughton appeared to have a wide-open dunk. Holiday had other plans, though, and he perfectly blocked the attempt. What a huge win for the Pelicans, who were the only road team to emerge...

Indians live stream Fortnite to kill time during rain delay

By: Matt Birch | April 14, 2018 The Indians did their best to entertain fans at Progressive Field during a rain delay on Saturday. They had a few hours to kill, so rather than sitting in silence, they treated the fans to some action on the videoboard. And rather than watching boring old highlights, the Indians elected to live stream a game of Fortnite. Apparently, an Indians staffer was playing the game. That game has taken the country by storm.

Josh Norman puts beef with Dez Bryant aside, welcomes him to join Redskins

By: Matt Birch | April 14, 2018 Dez Bryant appears to be leaning toward joining an NFC East team, if the interest is there, so he can attempt to stick it to the Cowboys for releasing him. Redskins cornerback Josh Norman apparently would welcome him to Washington, even though the two have had beef on the field in the past. Norman recently spoke with TMZ Sports and shared how he feels about the possibility of Bryant joining the Redskins. “He wouldn’t be a bad addition — hell, come on over!” Norman remarked. He continued: “If he can help us...

Angels, already happy with Shohei Ohtani, are moving him up in batting order

By: Matt Birch | April 13, 2018 Shohei Ohtani mania is sweeping the MLB world by storm, and even the Angels were happy with his development, apparently. Ohtani, who has already crushed three homers and driven in 11 runs, is currently batting .346. Those numbers are certainly not indicative of someone who hits out of the 8-hole. The Angels appear to be aware of that fact, so they’re moving him up in the batting order. Ohtani was moved up to seventh in the order for Friday’s game against the Royals at Kauffman Stadium. We’re only midway through April, and...

Shohei Ohtani gives bat to fan, then crushes triple with new one

By: Matt Birch | April 13, 2018 If you’re not feeling Angels sensation Shohei Ohtani — the second coming of Babe Ruth — then you’re not a baseball fan. Ohtani has burst onto the scene, crushing home runs and nearly even pulling off a perfect game in his first career MLB start. Not only that, he’s an awesome guy, which we recently learned. Ohtani was signing autographs for fans before a recent game, when he gave one particular kid his bat, which was pretty great. Not only that, the loss of the bat clearly didn’t affect him, as he...

Suns player throws alley-oop to himself, slams it home

The Sports Daily Suns player throws alley oop to himself, slams it home Suns swingman Danuel House didn’t even need help from his teammates to make the highlight reel during Sunday’s game against the Warriors. House got caught picking up his dribble near the elbow, but instead of just throwing up an ill-advised shot that had little chance of going in, he chose to attack the rim a different way. Rather than shooting the ball, House elected to throw it off the backboard, which caught the Warriors by surprise. House took advantage by slamming the ball home to complete the...

William Karlsson’s between-the-legs goal is season’s best so far

The Sports Daily William Karlsson’s between-the-legs goal is season’s best so far William Karlsson is a big reason the Vegas Golden Knights have been so successful this year, and he showed why during Saturday’s game against the Sharks. Karlsson scored the game-winning goal, which proved to be huge, but the degree of difficulty involved was off the charts. It’s a goal you need to see to believe. Karlsson was one-on-one with the Sharks netminder, when he pulled the puck back and shot it between his legs into the net. It’s crazy that Karlsson even attempted that, and shows how confident...
