After a long hiatus of WrestleMania 32, "WWE" fans wondered whether The Undertaker would hang his hat for good or have one more match before saying goodbye. His retirement would be timely and reasonable, just as WWE enters its New Era.
However, recent rumors suggest that The Undertaker may be sticking around for a farewell run, potentially against some of the best wrestlers of his time, at the grandest stage of them all—WrestleMania 33.

The other day I was watching live coverage of the US Open. The cameras showed empty practice courts, as gusts of wind swept across them on a crisp September morning in Queens, New York. A time when the video crews can typically get a live, behind-the-scenes glimpse at the competitors, none were to be found due to the difficult weather conditions — that is none but arguably tennis' greatest player of all-time, Serena Williams, and her hitting partner.
An unrelenting professional, she skillfully skipped around the practice court, splitting the oncoming gusts with would-be aces and sprinkling in strategic crosscourt volleys, honing her craft.
Undeterred, she took on the wind when most of her competition wouldn't. That — the work she puts in when nobody is keeping score — is what makes Serena the best. more >>

Sacramento Kings' DeMarcus Cousins and New Orleans Pelicans' Anthony Davis are among the centers in the league who have the potential to dominate in the 2016-17 NBA season. Cousins is more experienced than Davis, but they possess almost identical stats. Who is the better center?
Cousins vs Davis
Halk Halkias of SportsBlog wrote that he would prefer Davis over Cousins mainly because of their on- and off-court attitude. He explained that Cousins performed well in the past seasons but he has the tendency to hurt his team because of his foul attitude and body language. He stressed that the 26-year-old center of the Kings easily gets mad at his teammates and yells at refs when something goes wrong. more >>
Since two-time NBA MVP Stephen Curry rose to fame, some sports analysts and fans compared his basketball talents to 2016 Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Famer Allen Iverson. In a recent interview, Iverson affirmed that the Golden State Warriors superstar would be his toughest competition if he is still active in the NBA today.
Curry as Iverson's Biggest Rival
Iverson told FN that he would surely find a hard time guarding Curry if he is still playing for the league. He commented that Curry is the toughest player to guard on the NBA court at present. He also mentioned Russell Westbrook of Oklahoma City Thunder and Kyrie Irving of Cleveland Cavaliers as the players who have the same wavelength with Curry. more >>
As NBA teams prepare for practice camp before the start of the regular season, the trade rumor mill continues to produce new stories. Most of these rumors, however, focus around a few individuals, such as Chris Bosh, DeMarcus Cousins and the players involved in the front court log jam of the Sixers. Here are some of the latest rumors.
