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.
Alexis Sanchez had to leave the Copa America final before the penalty shootout on account of Gabriel Mercado caught him with a nasty tackle that left him unable to play past the 104th minute. Chile won anyway, thanks to Messi’s chokejob, but Alexis’ ankle has ballooned up and it looks like the podiatric equivalent of…
It’s almost been a year since Jason Pierre-Paul blew his hand up with a firework. This weekend, you, me, and millions of other shitheads will set off all manner of small explosives and undoubtedly, some will maim themselves in the process.
Yoenis Cespedes went all astronomical this evening against John Lackey. I am convinced this baseball was headed up out of the ballpark to join the Sky Gods in baseball heaven (this is where stars come from, FYI), but sadly, they rejected Cespedes’ offering and sent it to the third deck.
Duron Carter aimed for the football version of a Gordie Howe hat trick after the former Ohio State Buckeye (and, briefly, Indianapolis Colt) caught a touchdown pass for the Alouettes before knocking down an Ottawa coach and starting a brawl that resulted in a very Canadian string of penalties.
This morning, the author of the “Save America’s Pastime Act” disavowed the bill as a wrongheaded attempt to stifle already inadequate wages. Congresswoman Cheri Bustos did a complete 180 and wrote that, “I believe that Major League Baseball can and should pay young, passionate minor league players a fair wage for the…
Being inside a sex doll factory and watching all that plastic nakedness get shaped is much more haunting than it is titillating. It gets unsettling, like if you were trapped inside a scene from a horror movie and couldn’t get out. But it’s also somewhat intriguing, just to see the mixture of products and body parts…
Until this afternoon, Coastal Carolina had never won a national championship in a team sport, the Big South Conference had never had a national champion, and no College World Series participant had won the title in their first appearance in the finals in 60 years. The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers made all sorts of…
The Deadspin Awards are in July, and we need our readers to decide the winners of these prestigious honors. Today, we ask you to help us determine the answer to an important question: Who is the best bear of them all?
Tennis is allegedly a gentleman’s game, especially so at Wimbledon. There are rules against speaking during serves, and the games take place on the exquisitely manicured lawns of exclusive country clubs, in front of be-suited judges and polite crowds. However, because the game has a human judgment component, emotion…
Most professional cyclists are—by the standards of the alpha sportsman—not particularly intimidating. Descriptors you could use to describe pro cyclists range from “waif-thin insect person” to “cut, scrawny, and sunburnt.” However, French sprinter Nacer Bouhanni defies this, even if he’s 5-foot-9, 146 pounds.
Thank you for your continued support of Deadspin. I’m gonna do the last verse again, just for myself.

Today’s miserable extra time of the Poland-Portugal Euro 2016 quarterfinal became a little more spicy when an idiot on the field invaded the pitch right in the middle of a Portuguese offensive run. Tough luck, Ronaldo.
If there is one thing the employees of Deadspin love, it’s a super tight pool dunk. Now that the weather’s warm and the kids are out of school, it is once again time to do nothing but watch pool dunks all day at work. Are you with us?
The Westside Rifle & Pistol Range, not far from the Flatiron Building, looks like some dire conservative prophecy come to life—America’s gun-lovers stripped of all rights, forced to target-shoot in windowless bunkers. To the range’s regulars, that’s sometimes how it feels. While their brethren in Texas or Florida roam…
