Another day, another NBA trade rumor involving the Boston Celtics. The latest: Jahlil Okafor.
With Joel Embiid blowing up and the 76ers already cursed with more big men than they can find minutes for, Okafor is once again on the trade block. And according to ESPN’s Marc Stein, the C’s are interested.
“Okafor is kind of still there,” Stein told ESPN Radio. “He’s been so out there that you tend to think Philadelphia will find something in the next three days where they move him. I’ve heard that Boston has still given that some consideration. Chicago’s another team that’s been said to have shown some Okafor interest.”
All due respect, Okafor makes little sense for the Celtics once you look past the fact that the former No. 3 overall picks is tall. The Celtics can’t rebound, but neither can...
The Darrelle Revis saga continues to get more bizarre.
Revis is accused of knocking out two men during a street fight in Pittsburgh last weekend. TMZ Sports posted a video Sunday of the altercation that shows the two victims laying unconscious on the sidewalk while an unidentified man boasts about punching them out.
“Hey, I knocked both of these mother f—— out, both of them,” he says in the eight-second clip. “They both asleep. Shut up before I knock your ass out next.”
The Pittsburgh Police Department confirms the video is from the incident in question. Revis, 31, is the only person who’s been charged...
FORT MYERS, Fla. — Roenis Elias would seem to have every right to be bitter towards Fidel Castro.
Elias’ existence as a major leaguer in the United States was only made possible because of a death-defying ocean voyage. He had jumped aboard a make-shift boat at 3 a.m. one morning along with 26 others to take his chances in reaching Cancun, Mexico from Cuba. (For more on that story, click here.) Last year was a little weird for me, just in general with the trade, getting used to the clubhouse, getting used to just being here with a new team. But this year I’m coming in more comfortable, more confident in myself and abilities. Not that I wasn’t more confident before, but the confidence level is there. I’m just going to do my best and hopefully things come out the way I hoped they would.
Patriots running back James White became somewhat of a national star following Super Bowl LI when he scored three touchdowns, including the game-winning score in overtime.
White already was a star at the University of Wisconsin and the running back returned to his alma mater this weekend as he was honored at both the hockey and basketball games.
Sunday afternoon White was celebrated during one of the media timeouts when Wisconsin hosted Maryland. The crowd gave him a big round of applause and even started a “MVP” chant.
Before the game, White spoke about what his life has been like in the few weeks since the Super Bowl.
“It’s been fun, it’s been tiring, but it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity so I’ve just been enjoying it,” White said,...
When the Patriots selected wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell in last year’s NFL draft, much was made about him being in a women’s book club while at the University of Georgia and also writing a children’s book, “The Magicians Hat.”
Appearing on NFL Network Friday night, Mitchell said he would like to get the book published through a professional publisher and also work with them on getting a second book he’s written published, too.
“Currently right now, I am trying to work with publishers because I self-published a book while I was in college,” Mitchell said. “I would love to get the message to a broader scope just to share the magic of reading and personal experience I had with it.
“Right now I am trying to work with a publisher to get ‘The Magician’s Hat’ out even more and...
