Welterweight Bout: Andre Berto (31-4) vs. Shawn Porter (26-2-1) Luke Irwin: Rare that a premium cable card doesn’t have a title (even an ABC trinket) headlining it, but that’s refreshing. Berto was a laughable opponent for Mayweather, and the last boxer he beat in his prime

Phil Jackson is spectacularly disastrous as a GM. I hope he remains in control of the Knicks for a decade.
The NBA’s Eastern Conference might have a major shakeup soon. The Toronto Raptors have been a major staple of the conference for years thanks to stars such as Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan, a team capable of at least giving the Cleveland Cavaliers a run for their money over a seven-game series.

In the second quarter of Game 3 on Thursday, Turner got his own rebound after missing a shot, then proceeded to put the Cavaliers center on a poster with a vicious slam that got the crowd at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on its feet.

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
