The Sacramento Kings played without star center DeMarcus Cousins in their game against the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night, but still managed to get a convincing victory, 129-118. The entire game, though, was overshadowed by the commotion involving players from both teams in the tunnel as soon as everyone started heading to their locker rooms.
The verbal exchange among players came shortly after Bucks head coach Jason Kidd was ejected late in the fourth and with the game already decided.
The key figures in the altercation were Bucks guard O.J. Mayo and Kings injured center DeMarcus Cousins, to which the former was seen daring the latter to join him in the hallway. The tunnel at the BMO Harris Bradley Center eventually became the centerpiece of the issue, where several players, as well as police officers, crowded the tight space. more >>
Unfortunate news came in Wednesday when former cruiserweight boxer and titleholder O'Neil Bell was reportedly shot by robbers in Atlanta. The 40-year-old retired professional boxer died as a result of the shooting.
The Jamaican native is only one of two cruiserweight champs who can rightfully claim as an "undisputed" belt holder. Police later confirmed that robbery was the original intention in the fatal shooting. And while the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that they have the vehicle description, as well as the number of suspects, Atlanta police did ask for the public to help in identifying the shooters.
As of this posting, authorities suspect that there are four individuals involved in the crime, all of whom are males. The vehicle's description mentioned earlier referred to a Georgia plate (TJC685) for a 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser. It was later revealed that the car was stolen in the East Point vicinity a day before the shooting and was also used in a robbery that night. So far, the only evidence police has is a video of the vehicle wherein one individual is seen making his way out of it. more >>
Kyle Busch is the new NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champ, which means a lot of celebrations and gatherings are expected to follow in the off-season. Unfortunately, that's not the case for the 30-year-old stock car professional driver, who is actually going to have a follow-up surgery on a couple of injuries he suffered in the season, particularly the left foot and right leg.
Busch missed several races of the season, 11 to be exact, right after he broke his left foot and right leg in an accident during the Xfinity Series race in Daytona. The wreck forced him to be out for a while, requiring him to undergo corrective surgery, which included placing screws and rods to his feet. The purpose of another surgery in the off-season is to remove those rods and screws from the left foot and right leg.
He later revealed that doctors told him the recovery period will be at least four weeks. "Just having to re-go through the knee and to cut the knee open again in order to pull the rod out, that's going to be the most traumatic part and just having that have to heal and go back together and let the muscle get back together, and of course the tendon, as well to," the champion driver added. more >>
Irish mixed martial artist and UFC welterweight fighter Cathal Pendred called it a career on Wednesday after just six UFC bouts. The announcement of his retirement from the Ultimate Fighting Championship and mixed martial arts competition was made through his Twitter account.
His immediate retirement may come as a surprise to many especially that the UFC star is just 28 years old. However, looking at his past two fights, there in fact is good reason to call it quits. He currently holds a record in the MMA of 17 wins, four losses, and one draw. Although he won his first four fights after joining the UFC in 2014, he lost his last two, including a devastating first-round knockout loss to Tom Breese in the recently concluded UFC Fight Night Dublin.
Before joining the UFC, the fighter from Dublin held the Cage Warriors welterweight belt. more >>
