Last night, the Sacramento Kings selected Georgios Papagiannis with the 13th pick in the NBA Draft. The Kings, who have two guards under contract, passed on the only prospect to work out for them (Wade Baldwin) to draft a player who ESPN had going in the second round and Draft Express ranked as the 50th-best prospect.…
Just so we’re all clear, there’s a big Star Wars: The Force Awakens spoiler down here. Okay? All clear?
Tickets went on sale today for next summer’s European soccer championship, and to help promote the sale UEFA is running a Twitter campaign that lets users create a “supporter’s badge.”
Arsenal beat Chelsea 1-0 today to win their second straight Community Shield, and it appears Chelsea manager José Mourinho has about as much use for the match as the rest of us. Here he is avoiding congratulating rival manager Arsène Wenger and then throwing his second-place medal up into the crowd.
If you get your music news and gossip from mainstream sources, you'll pick someone other than Attila frontman Chris Fronzak for your 2014 Troll of the Year Award, and you will have made the wrong choice. Your heart may be in the right place. Or, more likely, you've never heard of this guy or the band of Atlanta…
Over the weekend, a game developer in Boston named Brianna Wu fled her home after an online stalker vowed to rape and kill her. She isn't the first woman who's been forced into hiding by aggrieved video game fans associated with Gamergate, the self-styled reform movement that's become difficult to ignore over the…

Anderson Silva is a genius, the best fighter in the history of mixed martial arts. It’s tempting to compare him to more familiar athletes in more familiar sports, if just to give some fixed point of reference, but that would diminish him.

This Twitter handle, @DidJRSmithMiss, is trolling at its best and probably the only resource you need to follow the Knicks-Pacers series.
UPDATE: OK, it appears we screwed up and jumped the gun. Dan Le Batard has yet to confirm or deny what player he voted for regular season MVP, or whether or not he even had a vote. We've just gotten word that he didn't vote for Anthony, and we sent Le Batard an email for comment, so let's see what happens. In the…
Hustle & Flow-themed trash talk? Hustle & Flow-themed trash talk.
