Jimmy Butler’s trade demand ignites feud between Stephen Jackson, Andrew Wiggins

Jimmy Butler’s trade demand ignites feud between Stephen Jackson, Andrew Wiggins

NBA JERSEYS
Minnesota Timberwolves All-Star shooting guard Jimmy Butler formally requested a trade Wednesday -- and that set off a series of events that eventually involved former NBA player Stephen Jackson, Minnesota small forward Andrew Wiggins and Andrew's brother Nick Wiggins.cheap nfl jerseys china nike Butler and Andrew Wiggins have been teammates for only one season, as Minnesota head coach/president of basketball operations Tom Thibodeau traded Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and the draft rights to Lauri Markkanen to the Chicago Bulls to acquire Butler. Thibodeau, who coached Butler in Chicago from 2011 until 2015, was tasked with working with former top overall picks Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns to end a postseason drought that reached a league-long 13 seasons. And it worked! Even though Butler was available for only 59 games, the Timberwolves…

Remade Rams defense starts slow, then slams the door

Remade Rams defense starts slow, then slams the door

NFL JERSEYS
It was the first series of the season opener and a long-anticipated look at the Los Angeles Rams' new star-studded defense. The result was hardly what was expected. Under a pile of blue-and-white jerseys, Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch ran up the middle, dragging a pile that included defensive linemen Aaron Donald, Ndamukong Suh and Michael Brockers, among others, across the goal line for a 10-yard touchdown.china nike nfl jerseys cheap If anything was apparent Monday in the Rams' 33-13 victory over the Raiders at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, it was that the made-over defense needed at least a half to come together and knock off any rust. And there's still plenty of room for improvement. "That's just the first game jitters man," cornerback Marcus Peters said after the game.…

Chris Thompson returns as lightning to Adrian Peterson’s thunder

Chris Thompson returns as lightning to Adrian Peterson’s thunder

NFL JERSEYS
A number of plays all announced the same thing Sunday: Chris Thompson is back. There was the burst he displayed on an outside zone run out of a run-pass option look. There was the dash to the outside to beat a defender for the first down. There was the way he won on a route that resulted in a touchdown catch.nike nfl jerseys cheap china They were the sort of plays Washington missed after he was lost for the season in 2017 after breaking his leg. The Redskins want to get Thompson 12 to 15 touches per game, knowing he could break off a long one at any time. He’ll get his next chance vs. Indianapolis on Sunday; the Colts allowed Cincinnati’s Joe Mixon 95 yards on 17 rushing attempts…

Does Marcus Rashford have a future at Manchester United under Jose Mourinho?

Does Marcus Rashford have a future at Manchester United under Jose Mourinho?

soccer jerseys
Early in England's UEFA Nations League match against Spain, Marcus Rashford gave a taste of what might yet be. The forward strolled onto a sublime through-ball from Luke Shaw, his Manchester United teammate, and finished with a single, supremely confident touch. His movement and self-assurance were of the highest quality.cheap nfl nike jerseys china For some, there may have been a reminder of his breakthrough season for United, when he played as an orthodox centre-forward and briefly looked as though he would play there for most of his career. Subsequent months and years have seen him out on the wing and -- at times -- out on a limb. The question is whether he can soon expect a central berth alongside Romelu Lukaku, and whether he can flourish there. It…

How many wins does Todd Bowles need to keep his job with Jets?

How many wins does Todd Bowles need to keep his job with Jets?

NFL JERSEYS
The months-long fascination with Sam Darnold has provided cover for New York Jets coach Todd Bowles, who has lost 22 of his past 32 games. Ordinarily, a coach with that kind of record feels his tush getting warmer, but there isn't much chatter outside the organization about his job security. Or inside it, for that matter. Part of that is the Darnold phenomenon. That Bowles received a two-year contract extension at the end of last season also is a factor, along with CEO Christopher Johnson saying there's no playoff mandate for Bowles and general manager Mike Maccagnan. From all indications, Bowles has the full support of his bosses.cheap nfl jerseys china nike He's certainly not operating like a coach worried about his job. Would he start a rookie quarterback if…

Saquon Barkley’s debut with Giants should include plenty of touches

Saquon Barkley’s debut with Giants should include plenty of touches

NFL JERSEYS
It has been more than two weeks since Saquon Barkley returned to practice following a tweaked hamstring. He’s been running and cutting like, well, Saquon Barkley, the No. 2 overall pick with 4.4 speed and the moves to match, ever since. There was a play at New York Giants practice last week where he zigged and zagged, stuck his foot in the ground and changed directions to maneuver past a defender without missing a beat. It seemed like good enough confirmation that there shouldn’t be any problems physically in his first career game Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars.china nike nfl jerseys cheap Barkley declared himself ready to handle a full workload in his NFL debut. That should include plenty of touches, but it also won’t completely minimize running backs Wayne…

Cubs rotation enters the stretch run ready to dominate

Cubs rotation enters the stretch run ready to dominate

MLB JERSEYS
The same goes for Cole Hamels, who's up for Pitcher of the Month for August, while Jon Lester is also rounding back into form after a post All-Star-break dip. Think about those names if the Cubs do indeed make it to October: Lester, Hamels, Hendricks. They are talented and playoff-tested. What other NL contender, aside from the Los Angeles Dodgers, can say the same about three of its starting pitchers? "With Jon and Cole, that's where it starts," Hendricks said. "They're never bothered too much. It trickles down to the rest of us young guys." That's funny, coming from Hendricks, who beat Clayton Kershaw to send the Cubs to the 2016 World Series. He has pitched in big game after big game, but he knows his teammates are in a…

Joe Maddon’s circle of trust shrinking as Cubs struggle

Joe Maddon’s circle of trust shrinking as Cubs struggle

MLB JERSEYS
Let's start on the mound, where he's still searching for plus and minus relievers -- those guys who can keep a game close when the Cubs are trailing, and of course those who can hold a lead as well. "We self-destructed, pitching-wise," Maddon said of Tuesday's game. Starter Mike Montgomery didn't have it, allowing the leadoff man to reach base in each of his four innings of work. But he's less of a concern than those bullpen arms that came after him considering Montgomery isn't slated to be a playoff starter. When he got pinch-hit for in the top of the fifth inning, the Brewers were leading only 2-1. Reliever Brandon Kintzler gave up a lead-off double in the bottom of the inning, which led to a run, as he…
