The NBA Conference Finals are finally in full swing. The Boston Celtics are playing the Cleveland Cavaliers, and the Golden State Warriors are playing the San Antonio Spurs. With the Warriors already up two games against San Antonio, basketball fans are inching ever closer to the all-but-inevitable Cavs vs. Warriors…
The Pachuca Tuzas were crowned as the first champions of the Liga MX women’s soccer league after beating the Tijuana Xolas 9-1 in the championship game held on Saturday.
I have painful, yet fond memories of my college’s Athletic Trainer using one of these on my thigh after I suffered a strained quad. They are hell while using it, but heaven afterwards. And for $10 when you use the code NPO7604K, this muscle roller can help further your love-hate relationship with working out.
Today the NBA and Take-Two Interactive announced the 17 NBA teams that have agreed to participate in the inaugural NBA 2K league. The NBA teams that will let their virtual logos and jerseys appear in the esports league are:
When Haley Carter, one of Mena Ahmadi’s coaches on the Afghanistan women’s national soccer team, said that she was worried Ahmadi would be detained at the airport on an upcoming trip to the United States, Ahmadi laughed it off. While she was the daughter of Afghan refugees, she had been born in Germany and was a…
Jonathan Allen just got picked by Washington at #17 in the NFL draft, guaranteeing him a big paycheck. Which he is most excited to spend on...something that can play Total War.
Dan Devine of Yahoo Sports wrote an article Saturday about former Cowboys QB Tony Romo’s plan to suit up for a Dallas Mavericks game Tuesday. The blog’s an inoffensive piece of aggregation, but also appears to have served as the basis for a piece of video which I hope isn’t the future of sports news.
If you’ve ever shopped for sports sunglasses for running, cycling, hiking, or whatever else, you know there are tons of different colored lenses to choose from. From copper to rose to yellow, these do make a little bit of a difference in what you see. The Wirecutter digs into when and why this might matter.
There’s a certain major basketball game tonight, and the NBA playoffs are right around the corner, and Amazon’s celebrating by taking 20% off Wilson composite leather basketballs, today only.

With the Final Four kicking off this Saturday, the end of March Madness is quickly approaching. Some of you are focused on your brackets. Some of you are focused on money. Here at Fusion, we’re focused on one thing and one thing only: which team is the most woke?
Diego Maradona wants to “initiate legal actions” against Pro Evolution Soccer publishers Konami, who he says used his likeness in a video game without permission.
This afternoon, the NBA launched its annual gender equality campaign with Lean In. They released several videos promoting the organization, and commissioner Adam Silver spoke with ESPN’s Ohm Youngmisuk, Lean In founder Sheryl Sandberg, and Kathleen Behrens, NBA president of social responsibility and player programs.…
It’s a little puzzling that Amazon would run an NCAA apparel sale after all but 12 schools have been eliminated from the tournament, but better late than never, I guess.
I am not a huge fan of athlete-designed or endorsed foods and diets, mainly because I am not an athlete, but I also hate the joyless, clinical approach so many of these “diets” take. (In fact, when Tom Brady released his absurd, overpriced “nutritional manual” last year, I was incensed.) But the NBA has a meal plan…
There’s a lot of stuff you can do in MLB The Show 17. You can throw balls, swing bats, and up until recently, create unholy baseball abominations like the above.
I’m going to be honest: choosing a March Madness theme was a little tough this year because we are all feeling... a little more existential than usual.
