Giannis Antetokounmpo produced some top-tier highlight clips despite a 115-108 loss to the Pelicans. Early in the night, he contorted himself on a drive and used his long arms to flush it.
The clusterfuck of Rick Pitino getting fired by Louisville amid an FBI corruption investigation is only getting more complicated. While Pitino has active suits open against his former school for wrongful termination and Adidas for intentional infliction of emotional distress, Louisville has now countersued Pitino for…
North Miami High’s Donte Innocent, who’s listed at just six feet tall, somehow gained the power of flight as he went for a chasedown block, completely devouring an opponent who probably though he had an easy bunny.
We talk about LeBron James and his team pretty often around here, but their 123-114 win over Atlanta tonight (not as close as it appears) was yet another reminder of how the King can take your breath away. The Cavs always dominate the Hawks—they’ve hit in NBA-record 25 threes against them twice—and this was just…
Madison Square Garden looks like an extremely fun place to be tonight, as two teams filled with intriguing young talents keep going back and forth with each other through three quarters. The game’s excitement peaked (so far) with this pulse-pounding two minutes of basketball, which kicked off with a Lonzo Ball slam…
You will no doubt be shocked to learn that former baseball player Jose Canseco, who was charged with domestic violence twice in the 1990s and pleaded no contest once (to name just a couple of his many legal issues), made a bad tweet today:
There’s no shortage of stories about President Donald Trump being a gross, aggressive perv, and Stacia Robitaille shared another on Twitter last night:
Boston Red Sox pitcher Steven Wright was arrested Friday night in Williamson County, Tenn., and charged with domestic-related assault and prevention of a 911 call, according to local authorities. Both charges are misdemeanors, and Wright later was released from custody after he posted bail.
Manchester City beat Manchester United 2-1 at Old Trafford yesterday, and apparently, as City were celebrating after the game in the visitors’ locker room, United manager Jose Mourinho took exception to some of the noise—which the visitors then took exception to in hilarious, milky fashion.
Thank you for your continued support of Deadspin. This week I learned that Metallica didn’t always suck.
Faced with one of their toughest opponents of the year, a Jacksonville Jaguars team with a brand-new identity proved that they’re not only the NFL’s best defensive team, but also one of its most fun. Their 30-24 win over Seattle today was highlighted by big plays and mostly lopsided excitement.
Seahawks tempers were running hot when their loss to the Jaguars was all but over, and a dust-up with the Jags in victory formation led to an unsportsmanlike conduct ejection for Seattle’s Quinton Jefferson. As Jefferson left the field, however, the situation deteriorated further, and some idiot in the crowd threw…
It took over 15 years of waiting, but Alan Trammell is finally in the Baseball Hall of Fame. With 13 out of 16 votes, the Modern Baseball Era committee chose the longtime Detroit Tigers shortstop to finally gain entrance to Cooperstown, after never getting more than 37% on the traditional writers’ ballots.
The Rams and Eagles, two of the best teams in the NFC, have been trading leads all afternoon, but if Philadelphia is going to pull out a win in L.A., they’re going to have to do it without stud QB Carson Wentz. Wentz is officially out for the rest of the day with a left knee injury, which was apparently sustained on…
It looked like this was going to be the day that the 2008 0-16 Lions could finally break out the champagne. The 0-12 Cleveland Browns were up 21-7 on Green Bay at the start of the fourth quarter, in perfect position to get their first win since Christmas Eve 2016.
A convoluted, hilarious series of events in the Colts-Bills snowglobe game allowed Indianapolis kicker Adam Vinatieri to hit the game-tying extra point late in the fourth quarter, despite near-impossible kicking conditions.
