Stephen Curry: 'We're Just Getting Started'

After shooting 55.6 percent and contributing 35.2 points, 8.4 rebounds and 5.4 assists to the five-game domination, he now has a new title. But nobody cared, as long as we won. " You can talk about whatever happens on the outside, but inside those lines, I come to bring it every day". And when your support is averaging nearly 28 points a night, you know you're going to be in pretty good shape. Read More »

Warriors undecided on whether to visit White House

The Warriors shifted the way the game was played, but as is the business of trailblazing, sometimes you get blazed yourself.

Earlier Thursday morning, AirSign tweeted a photo of the blimp that reportedly crashed. Read More »

perth_map

On clay, against Nadal, whose 10 French Open titles may only ever be beaten if he wins again next year, the indecision was deadly. But the thing that I am more proud of in my career probably is 2013. Wawrinka , a powerful 32-year-old from Switzerland, had never lost in his three previous Grand Slam singles finals. As a tired Wawrinka sliced a volley into the net on match point Nadal collapsed on his back on the baseline. Read More »

Blimp catches fire and crashes near US Open, injuring pilot, reports say

But if I just make one or two of the good looks I have, it's a couple under. It would be nice to get rid of that tag at some point.

Major takeaways from Golden State Warriors' 2017 NBA championship

The Warriors lured him to Golden State last summer with promises of creating an everlasting dynasty, and there's no real reason to believe they won't. "There's probably more to come on that".

Blimp Crashes at US Open at Erin Hills

Mickelson withdraws from US Open

The Spaniard, 10th in the World Golf Ranking and a popular pick at the U.S. Open, is 3-over par through his first five holes and has yet to hit a green in regulation. It's more than worth the trouble for the 30-year-old Mexico native who now lives in SC and plays most of his golf on the Web.com Tour. "Knowing Phil and knowing how much he wants to play, it wouldn't surprise me if he left [California even] if rain wasn't in the forecast", Mackay told Fox Sports . Read More »

Curry to pass on White House celebration visit

perth_map

While the Warriors' collection of talent is something the league hasn't seen before, they also had more than their fair share of luck along the way. Durant may have a point: He's the only top-three draft pick on the Warriors' roster. But with a less competitive series and ratings for live sports experiencing declines across the board, growth of any kind is welcome news for the National Basketball Association and its television partners - and indicative of the league's growing value in the ...

Lakers brass to spend time with Ball Friday

I'm going to be humble. When I knew Lonzo in high school, I'd never seen his dad before.

A quick look at the French Open

perth_map

Thiem has definitely looked better this tournament, but anytime Djokovic has been pushed up against a wall this week he played incredibly, so I really can't say for sure who I think will win. Nadal can't face both of them, and many don't even expect Thiem to take a set off of the defending champ, let alone dethrone him. Most recently, Djokovic thumped Thiem 6-1, 6-0 in the semi-finals of the Rome Masters. Read More »

Yankees @ Angels (Judge Not)

It was his longest homer, and the catcher became the sixth Yankee to reach double digits in long balls. He drove in the Yankees' first two runs with two-out, RBI singles in the third and fifth innings. We needed it. Here's hoping he brings something similar to Oakland. First, the team perspective. Meyer gave up just three base hits (all singles) but did walk four batters while registering the nine punchouts. Read More »
