Officials whistled WVU’s Elijah Macon for a foul on this play; all three refs were looking directly at the play—in which two Texas players foul each other, and no Mountaineers are to blame for anything—and they still screwed it up. Big 12 officials seem as good at their jobs as Texas’s basketball and football teams…
NBA superstar DeMarcus Cousins has been traded from the Kings to the Pelicans, and everybody outside Sacramento’s front office knows it’s a bad deal. It’s so bad that, if you try and do it in NBA 2K17, the game won’t let you, because it actually knows things about basketball and business.
Yes, West Virginia is up big at the half over Texas. But spiritually, we don’t see how they ever recover from the devastation of this Jarrett Allen dunk.
Thank you for your continued support of Deadspin. Enjoy the last bit of your holiday.
Sacramento Kings GM Vlade Divac made a blockbuster trade yesterday, shipping superstar center DeMarcus Cousins to the New Orleans Pelicans for a sack of oranges and a Fast & Furious DVD box set. He faced the music and held a press conference this afternoon, during which he revealed that he allowed himself to get…
Over the weekend, Cardinals outfielder Dexter Fowler was asked what he thought about Donald Trump’s Muslim travel ban. Fowler has a personal stake in the ban, as his wife is from Iran and his sister in law recently cancelled a return trip from Qatar because she didn’t want to be detained. Given these circumstances,…
If there’s been one consistent attribute of Barcelona’s play over the past decade or so that has seduced fans and neutrals and even ostensible enemies to buy a ticket to the Camp Nou or to flick on the TV to whichever obscure channel wound up with the La Liga broadcasting rights or to trawl sketchy video sites for the…
Jonathan Mejía and his UCAM Murcia squad lost to Real Valladolid on Saturday in some hot second-division Spanish soccer action, but really, who cares, for young Mejía scored the goal of his life. Look at the Honduran international turn these four dudes into jelly.
Kevin Olsen, the quarterback at Charlotte and the younger brother of Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen, is being charged with felony second-degree forcible rape, cyberstalking, assault on a female and second-degree forced sex.
Being a Kings fan is an exercise in managing constant, crushing disappointment. Aside from one anomalous stretch in the early 2000s, the team has never been worth a damn, and even then, their high water mark was getting owned in humiliating fashion by the Lakers. Last night’s disastrous DeMarcus Cousins trade is just…
One look at the way I operate around my co-workers and you’d think I’m anti-social and evil. I don’t talk to these people, I don’t let them talk to me, and I keep all group participation levels to an absolute minimum. Simply put, if I don’t have to interact with them, I don’t. I’m not evil, though. I have my reasons:
One of the cool things about a blockbuster trade coming early in the trade deadline period is how its aftershocks set up the rest of the trade window to play out much differently than it was expected to.
Anker’s home goods brand, Eufy, put its new set of copper string lights back on sale today for $9. Unlike last week’s sale, this set doesn’t include a remote, but it’s also a few bucks cheaper, and is a fine option for indoor or outdoor decorating.
I watched The Accountant on an airplane last week because that’s the kind of movie you watch on an airplane. And even though it effectively bled two hours off the flight, I have many questions:
As you surely know by now, last night the Sacramento Kings traded DeMarcus Cousins (and Omri Casspi) to the New Orleans Pelicans for rookie Buddy Hield, veterans Tyreke Evans and Langston Galloway, a protected 2017 first-round draft choice, and a 2017 second-round pick. Now that we know what type of return the…

Vacuuming is objectively the worst chore, but with the right tools, it can be a little less miserable.
