Jason Collins has spent 12 years in the NBA with a number of teams, most recently the Washington Wizards. However, more important than his contributions on the court is his most recent contribution off of it, as he told Sports Illustrated that he is gay, becoming the first active player in the NBA to do so.
Barcelona's Lionel Messi is a magician with a football at his feet, and the best player in the world. He proved both of those things today with a ridiculous goal against Athletic Bilbao, leading to broadcaster Ray Hudson to lose his freaking mind.
While the NFL Draft did not see any players from the University at Albany get chosen, it did end happily for two Great Danes prospects, as linebacker Jon Morgan and running back Drew Smith signed contracts as undrafted free agents.
The 2013 UEFA Champions League has been a coming out party for Germany. Often regarded as a tier below the leagues of England and Spain, the nation's top two club teams, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, have smoked Spanish opponents in the semifinals of the competition, and are almost a sure thing to advance to the finals against one another.
Chris Bosh is often a forgotten man on the Miami Heat, living in the shadows of LeBron James and Dwyane Wade as the third member of the Big Three. However, I don't recall LeBron or Wade ever having to avenge their father's death through an adventure in the multiverse as Bosh had to do in this animated short film.
This NBA season has been one of the best ever in terms of pure athletic talent which, of course, means that there have been no shortage of ridiculous dunks. The NBA compiled the top ten of the 2012-2013 season which, unsurprisingly, is full of windmills and the Los Angeles Clippers.
Manchester United have easily been the best team in the English Premier League this season with a display of consistency that nobody could get close to matching. Yesterday, they had their coronation, clinching the Premier League title with a 3-0 domination of Aston Villa, thanks to a first half hat trick by Robin van Persie.
Series between the Los Angeles Clippers and Memphis Grizzlies have become a tradition in the NBA Playoffs, with some memorable games taking place over the last few postseasons. Last night was no exception, as the Clippers blew a 12 point fourth quarter lead, yet found a way to win in the final seconds with a Chris Paul game winning shot.
The NBA Playoffs are officially upon us. Starting tomorrow, sixteen teams will start their quest to win sixteen games and stake their claim to the Larry O'Brien Trophy and an NBA championship. However, before they get to the Finals, the teams have to win in the first round.
Below are quick previews of each NBA Playoff series, along with a poll for each series. Feel free to take one or all of them and weigh in on who you think will advance to the next round.
In last night's game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres, Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke threw a 3-2 pitch in a 2-1 game that hit Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin. It seemed like an honest mistake given the count and score of the game, but Quentin didn't see it that way, charging the mound and breaking Greinke's collarbone in the process.
