The Denver Broncos are in a bit of a pickle at the moment as they might have to start their organized team activities without starting quarterback Mark Sanchez.
According to NFL, this is a big blow for the defending Super Bowl champions as they are now going to have to resort to their younger guys to do scrimmages on the field. Sanchez was brought in as a replacement for Peyton Manning but his time for the Broncos may have to wait a little longer after he suffered an injury in the weight room last week.
As a result, Sanchez had to go surgery to repair the torn ligament on his thumb. Luckily, it was not on his throwing hand and it was deemed not to be a serious one. However, they still need to take precaution before putting Sanchez back on the field, as per Bleacher Report. more >>
There is no such thing as a security of tenure in the NBA, with players and coaches' fates hanging in the balance at the end of every season. While basketball fans are more thrilled to see big-time trades happening involving franchise players, an intriguing aspect of the league's unpredictability is the frequent coaching changes. For next season, let's take a look at four individuals who will be taking the driver's seat with their new teams.
Tom Thibodeau – Minnesota Timberwolves
Former Chicago Bulls head coach and defensive specialist Tom Thibodeau will not only take over as the team's head coaching responsibility, he also will be the president of basketball operations. Per AP report, the 58-year old was the most sought after coach in the league, but teams were hesitant to bring him on board because he expressed his desire to join an organization that's willing to give him front office duties and full control of the team. more >>
Kobe Bryant may be done with basketball, but business is as usual for the Los Angeles Lakers superstar. His business venture, Kobe Inc. reportedly has filed a trademark for his most popular NBA moniker, "Black Mamba."
Moniker in Business
ESPN reports that Bryant's company filed for the said trademark early this month, based on the record from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The report also said that the intention of filing for a trademark is to use the nickname for business-related purposes like manufacturing and selling products such as athletic apparel. more >>
Donald Trump is shaping America's politics into something quite different to what its citizens are accustomed to. The GOP frontrunner is almost there, hoping to cash in his popularity and become the next president. And while Democratic Party is looking to rally behind the most likely nominee in Hillary Clinton, the Republicans are obviously divided, at least speaking at the levels of leadership.
A report from The Washington Post revealed that several members of the Republican Party are desperately trying to find someone who can put a halt to the billionaire businessman's impending nomination, and one of the names appearing to have been convinced by the group is Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban.
Though one wouldn't be surprised to hear the likes of former secretary of state Condoleezza Rice and ex-Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney being called up, Cuban is someone who rightfully deserves the description of "unlikely." Cuban himself confirmed that he indeed was approached by the group, per a report from Fox Sports. A billionaire himself, Cuban boldly said that he could put Trump "in his place," although it's too late to pose a challenge against him at this point of the campaign period. more >>
The most animated personality in the Golden State Warriors locker room is Draymond Green, but his outgoing style and aggressiveness can sometimes lead to unwanted outbursts and technical fouls, which in a lot of instances, can be detrimental to the team. But according to the All-Star forward, he's cutting down on his technical fouls for the rest of the playoffs.
In Saturday's full practice, Green was surprisingly silent the whole time, according to The Associated Press. Well, it might be the start of his commitment to refrain from arguing a lot with the officials. If he talks, there's a tendency for things to get overblown. If he's silent, there's minimal concern.
The Warriors will be taking on the Oklahoma City Thunder in the Western Conference Finals and Green is several technical fouls away from getting suspended. In a series where a lot is at stake, he no longer can afford to give his team any headache, as per CBS Sports. more >>
