A few hours after Jimmy Butler was traded to the Timberwolves for some odds and ends lying around the office, his trainer had some strong words for the Bulls’ front office:
It’s been a bad year for the Blue Jays. And while it’s gotten a little better in the last month or so—and much better since, say, their 1-9 start—they still just can’t manage to pull themselves to .500, even as they’ve continually hovered just under the mark.
As expected, the Lakers selected UCLA point guard Lonzo Ball with the second overall pick of tonight’s NBA draft. As expected, his father LaVar Ball had some grand proclamations to make beforehand. (Mainly that he had it on the good authority of Zeus and Jesus themselves that Lonzo would be drafted by the Lakers.)
The biggest story of the NBA draft’s first round was the Bulls and Timberwolves swapping picks as part of a trade that sent Jimmy Butler to Minnesota in an absurdly low package. Apart from that, things unfolded largely without incident. Kristaps Porzingis is still a Knick, Paul George is still a Pacer, the world still…
Sounds like this company needs to watch its spokespeople more closely. Ah, well. It’s a Philly sports tradition.
Days of frenzied Jimmy Butler trade rumors have apparently met their end, via reports from Adrian Wojnarowski and the Chicago Tribune’s K.C. Johnson, among others. The Bulls are sending Butler and their No. 16 draft pick to Minnesota in exchange for shooting guard Zach LaVine, point guard Kris Dunn and the No. 7 pick…
This Suaoki portable jump starter isn’t the most powerful model out there—at 400A, it’s only going to work on relatively small cars with 2.5L or smaller engines—but $22 is one of the best prices we’ve ever seen on a product like this.
Derek Jeter has been trying to buy the Miami Marlins from their gross owner Jeffrey Loria for a few months, but things have not been going well for him lately. His good friend Jeb Bush dropped out of a joint pursuit with Jeets three weeks ago, and he reportedly spoke to MLB officials today and told them that he…
IT’S DRAFTIN’ TIME! Duck and cover for the Wojbombs, and as always we appreciate your business here at Deadspin.
You actively look for pregnant ladies to give your seat to on the bus. You always hold open doors for strangers. You help your friend lug a sofa across town and up five flights to their new apartment. You’re a nice person.
Roger Federer is no longer cause for alarm, but not quite celebration, either. After his first match on his favorite surface ended in a freak loss to 39-year-old Tommy Haas, the Swiss routed world No. 66 Yuichi Sugita in his first match at the Halle Open, and today faced his first real test in No. 29 Mischa Zverev, a…
Let’s be honest here, thin fabric koozies are mostly useful for decoration; they don’t really keep a can cold for very long. This imposing metal Thermos contraption though? It’s the real deal.
Donald Trump is pretty weird about sports. He supposedly has a philosophical opposition to exercise on the grounds that the human body has a limited amount of energy that gets depleted by working out, his son boasts about unrealistic CrossFit achievements, and, as he showed this morning on the golf course, he’s not…

A worst-case scenario for an existing team going through an expansion draft is losing one useful player. The Florida Panthers—already a bad team—lost two last night. Today, they hired Hall of Famer Chris Pronger to join their front office, prompting the question, what exactly did the Panthers sell this guy on?
The White House press corps is fighting mad over their own collective decision not to air press briefings from the White House.
