Yesterday, Kevin Durant, a tall, expensive shoe who gets revenge on the haters by boasting about how you join them if you can’t beat them, got caught talking shit about his former Thunder coach and teammates on Twitter. It was mean of Durant to slag his old team by claiming he could have never won a championship with…
Thanks to the eagle eye of Twitter user @harrisonmc15, we get to enjoy these since-deleted tweets from Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant:
A bump segment during today’s Notre Dame-Boston College game on ESPN today featured a Getty Images photo of Frank Leahy from 1941. It also featured a naked dude in the background. Here’s the original photo wire caption:
A bus driver took a wrong turn yesterday and accidentally ended up out on track at Circuit of the Americas’ Turn 6, halting a Formula 4 support race for the Lone Star Le Mans weekend. Oops!
One way to address a slip-up on live TV is to move on as if it didn’t happen, and apologize later if absolutely necessary. Former NFL coach Jim Mora did not follow this procedure after he said jokingly that WDSU anchor Scott Walker was “full of shit” during Monday’s Saints postgame segment.
Mike Klis of 9News tweeted a little while ago that the Broncos are expected to kick the tires on bad NFL quarterback and former salary dump Brock Osweiler. What he tweeted next—and immediately deleted—sure as hell looked like instructions to stiff-arm his competition:
Major League Lacrosse just sent an email to every player currently in its player pool—this includes inactive players—alerting them to the fact that the league accidentally exposed their personal information, including their social security numbers.
Now here’s some solid fight analysis: As Stephen A. Smith talked about how Floyd would’ve won tonight’s fight more easily if he were younger, a man in a Boston Celtics cap jumped in front of him and yelled, “Fuck the Mayweathers!” Of course.
Here is a picture that was posted and then quickly deleted from the Ball State football team’s Instagram page. If you are like me, you will find it very confusing:
SportsCenter put Cleveland radio host Aaron Goldhammer on the air tonight after the Kyrie Irving trade, and he suggested they take some calls in a simulcast. Sounded fun!
The Marlins lost 3-2 to the Nationals last night after surrendering a 2-1 lead in the sixth when Bryce Harper banged an RBI double off the right-field wall. Getting beat by a player as good as Harper isn’t anything to be ashamed of, except when he was never supposed to be given the chance in the first place.
Manchester United player Daley Blind wants you to know that he’s ready for the next match, and also that he’s not very good at copying and pasting.
During his round at the British Open today, Sergio Garcia whacked his club into some bushes after hitting a shot he was not happy with on the fourth hole. He should not have done that, because he ended up hurting his shoulder.
The Washington Post’s Dan Steinberg draws our attention to a section of the NFL’s official online store, in which fans can buy novelty license plates in order to express pride in their home state and their team. The Skins’ version of the plate is above, and as you can see, that’s, uh, Washington state. The Skins play…
Adrian Wojnarowski did not report that LeBron James plans to opt out in 2018 and create a super-team in Los Angeles; “WojVertioalNBA” did. Around the Horn didn’t catch the faux Woj before the tweet aired, though, so the panel debated whether James would actually execute this not-actually-reported plan.
There’s a reason the referee tells fighters to “protect yourselves at all times.”
