Timofey Mozgov is champion. Now, Mozgov is a free agent and the man just got paid. According to Woj, the Los Angeles Lakers kicked off their summer of whiffing at free agents by quickly getting into “serious talks” with Mozgov. Those serious talks turned into a four year, $64 million deal.
As far as athlete speeches go, LeBron James’s address to a sea of Cavaliers fans at yesterday’s victory parade was pretty great. James spent his 15 minutes on stage cursin’ and jokin’ and thanking each of his teammates individually. The best moment came when he got to Timofey Mozgov.

Klay Thompson was briefly removed from Game 3 of the NBA Finals after a collision with Cavs center Timofey Mozgov left him with a contusion on his left thigh. After the game, Thompson was still annoyed about how things went down:
ESPN The Magazine’s Sam Alipour published a story about athletes using online dating today, and though the trend piece seems six months too late, the timeliness can be forgiven because of the anecdotes within. Athletes are just like us, in that they’re looking for people to hump.

Timofey Mozgov has already produced a body of work that would secure him a spot in the Athlete Local Commercial Hall Of Fame, if such a thing existed. Which is to say that Mozgov didn’t need to cut this spot for Sky Zone in order to prove his greatness, but he did it anyway, because that’s what legends do.
At first glance, this picture of Timofey Mozgov doesn’t seem like much. It’s from his Facebook page, and comes with the caption “With my Russian agents (ProTeam Agency).
