Carmelo Anthony joining the Boston Celtics seems like one of the most obvious things about the NBA today. Anthony seems like a man on his way out after his relationship with the New York Knicks continues to sour.
Carmelo Anthony to the Celtics isn’t going away
Paul George was asked about Myles Turner’s play after Game 2 Monday and he told reporters : “We just need [Myles] to challenge Tristan [Thompson]…” The Indiana Pacers center has been fairly quiet in the first two games of the series against the Cleveland Cavaliers, but he evidently took George’s message to heart.

Below is the leaked schedule, per numerous media outlets now. My first thoughts is this is a nightmare schedule early. To start on the road on Monday Night Football, then turn around and have to play the Patriots at home on a short week (when they played Thursday night and will have a lot more time to prepare) – then you have to go on the road twice more before the bye, including once to London

It’s now starting to look like umpire C.B. Bucknor has it out for the Nationals, because it’s hard to imagine that he’s this bad of an official. After blowing a strike-3 call behind home plate on Tuesday, Bucknor went back to sucking less than 24 hours later, and made another ridiculous call that went against the Nats
Remember that painting of Anthony Rizzo and Kris Bryant that teammate Matt Szczur did for charity? Well, the piece of art that immortalized the Chicago Cubs ending their 108-year World Series drought sold Wednesday…fetching $35,000 for charity To put everything into perspective…that’s $35,000 more than you have ever thought about spending on a painting, much less one done by a backup outfielder.

MINNEAPOLIS, MN – APRIL 18: Phil Hughes #45 of the Minnesota Twins delivers a pitch against the Cleveland Indians during the first inning of the game on April 18, 2017 at Target Field in Minneapolis, Minnesota. (Photo by Hannah Foslien/Getty Images) The Moment – As you might be able to surmise by the way this game ended up, the biggest momentum turn was the first time that the Indians opened the lead. That happened in the third when Jose Ramirez dropped a two run homer over the fence to expand the lead to 5-2.
Indians 11, Twins 4 – The Twins are down to .500
If you were scrolling through Twitter last night or this morning, amid the dozens of tweets about WWE Raw that appeared, despite you following zero wrestling accounts, there were multiple options for you to watch Grizzlies’ head coach David Fizdale outwardly express his internal screaming over the free throw disparity in Monday night’s loss to the Spurs. Fizdale did not care for the fact that the officials awarded San Antonio 17 more free throws than Memphis, even though the Grizzlies attempted 17 more shots in the lane than the Spurs did. Grizzlies coach David Fizdale goes off on the refs after the Game 2 loss: 'Take that for data!' pic.twitter.com/kBaGytjyyW — Sports Illustrated (@SInow) April 18, 2017 The only regrettable action here is that after Fizdale yelled, “Take that for data” and slammed his hand on the table, he did not pull out his checkbook and narrate himself writing a check for the impending fine
