Chandler Parsons is the most beautiful man in the NBA … according to Tinder

Leave it to Reddit to settle a hair salon argument. Apparently, Chandler Parsons is the best looking player in the NBA. Reddit user Aesthetikal recently did a bit of a social experiment that led to this conclusion, creating profiles on the popular dating app Tinder for several players. Listing only their heights (no names) and posting pictures of them in street clothes, Aesthetikal tracked who got the most interactions in 24 hours. Parsons prevailed in a landslide with 127 interactions ahead of Kevin Love (96) and J.J. Redick (95) who rounded out the top three. Ultimately, though, this trade comes down to New Orleans going from the middle of the […]

there could be incentive on both sides to make a Bulls move happen.

Another possibility: the Bulls. It’s been a disappointing season in Chicago, and some of the young assets the Bulls hoped to developed have not blossomed. But the Bulls would be in position to make the Knicks an offer, and when he was a free agent in 2014, Anthony not only visited Chicago to take their pitch, he nearly decided to sign with Bulls. Should good friend Dwyane Wade decide against opting out this summer, there could be incentive on both sides to make a Bulls move happen. The Cavaliers? “Longshot,” one exec said. Unless LeBron James pushes for such a move, Anthony landing in Cleveland is unlikely. In all, it […]

Rudy Gobert sings ‘Loyal’ to diss Gordon Hayward’s move from Jazz to Celtics

Gordon Hayward is the farthest thing from loyal — if you’re asking his former Jazz teammate Rudy Gobert. Hayward ended his drawn-out free agency saga on Tuesday by officially leaving Utah to join up with former college coach Brad Stevens in Boston. That, of course, prompted a vitriolic response from Gobert, who chose an interesting way to diss his former teammate — with a little help from singer Chris Brown. Gobert’s frustration with Hayward is understandable — the two did spend four seasons in Utah together, after all — so the need to vent is unsurprising. And honestly, is there a better way to do that than with spouting off […]

Giants QB Geno Smith claims he’s ‘100’ after ACL surgery

Geno Smith has an uphill road to playing time with the Giants this fall as he enters a crowded quarterback picture while coming off major knee surgery, but he’s doing his best to project confidence. “I’ve enjoyed my time at Nauset,” Sherman said in a statement, via the Cape Cod Times. “I believe the kids not only learned a lot about football but about life as well. I believe they learned some core values that will serve them well. Ultimately, that is what high school sports is all about.” Sherman, 62, is planning to open a new athletics training facility called Total Athletics Cape Cod this summer. A Massachusetts native, […]

Jay Cutler belongs with the Jets, but he’d be fine with these other teams

Jay Cutler’s time in Chicago has expired, as expected. With a $16 million cap hit in 2017 and just $2 million in dead money left on the seven-year deal he signed back in 2014, it’s no surprise the Bears moved on from their embattled franchise quarterback. The club’s front office publicly declared its intents to reform the roster of a 3-13 team, and the man once hoped to be a franchise savior was among the first to go. But Cutler, 33 years old, is far from done as a passer. He’s just one year removed from posting the highest QB rating of his career, and though he went 6-9 in […]

And as far as chance is concerned, the Blue Jackets’ streak seems pretty chancy

Reifman, who teaches statistics at Texas Tech, has maintained a blog dedicated to sports streakiness called The Hot Hand since 2002. His book, also called The Hot Hand, examines the statistical and psychological aspects behind some of the most famous streaks in sports history. The book tries to “bridge the gap,” in his words, between the idea that streaks are based purely on ability and the idea that streaks are purely based on chance. And as far as chance is concerned, the Blue Jackets’ streak seems pretty chancy. That’s elite company, and KD’s shot-swatting prowess De’Vondre Campbell Authentic Jersey was on full display in early November when he recorded six […]

Bill O’Brien is building ‘Patriots South’ in Houston. And it’s kind of working

Several of Bill Belichick proteges have attempted to emulate his authoritative style elsewhere and failed. But Bill O’Brien is taking it a step further: He’s not merely trying to mimic Belichick; he’s trying to recreate the Patriots all together. O’Brien will face off against Belichick for the first time Sunday night when New England visits Houston, but he’s not the only ex-Patriot who’s manning the Texans’ sideline. In total, five of the Texans’ coaches have direct ties to Belichick. “We ran some passes from under center, which we hadn’t done in a while,” Rodgers said. “All of that kind of starts with the run game.” The Packers are starting to […]

A year later, Cowboys feeling completely different

After losing to the Dee Ford Authentic Womens Jersey Carolina Panthers last year on Thanksgiving, there was a heavy scent of defeat inside the Dallas Cowboys locker room. The loss was the team’s eighth in 11 games and, more importantly, Tony Romo suffered a broken left collarbone for the second time in the season and would not play another snap in 2015. On Thursday, the mood inside the locker room after the Cowboys’ 31-26 win against the Washington Redskins was completely different. The Cowboys, celebrating a Dak Prescott TD run on Thursday, have made quite a turnaround since last Thanksgiving. “We’re smiling,” cornerback Brandon Carr said. Those decisions weren’t the […]

Other Fabes Sole High customers have included Titans tight end Delanie Walker and Bills quarterback Cardale Jones

Other Fabes Sole High customers have included Titans tight end Delanie Walker and Bills quarterback Cardale Jones, among others. The NFL often frowns on custom footwear being worn in games, so most of these players have worn their Fabes Sole High cleats only for pregame activities. But some have managed to get them into games. “The guys who police this stuff for the league, they’ll tell the players during pregame, ‘You can’t wear that during the game,’ but they usually don’t check after that,” Kerber said. “So some guys, like Cardale Jones, have switched to regular cleats for the first half and then worn their custom designs during the second […]
