The way Bud Dupree tells it, James Harrison was not a popular guy in the Pittsburgh Steelers* locker room by the time he was released last month. Shazier, a Steelers linebacker, said Harrison would fall asleep in meetings and didn*t help groom his fellow teammates. Harrison barely played for the Steelers this season, getting on the field for just 40 snaps, before getting cut and scooped up by the New England Patriots. Harrison has made a positive impact on the field. It sounds like he*s been a good teammate in New England, as well. ※He*s a great guy, a vet, definitely understands the game a lot,§ defensive end Trey Flowers said. Flowers said he*s learned about different techniques.

Female fans of this new design will have a choice between a black and a white pair with nubuck dressing up the aforementioned heel tabs. Both adidas Everyn selections will arrive at adidas houses on January 24th as well as adidas.! One of Nike*s most oft-used aesthetics is the ※Oreo§ colorway 每 an attractive color combination of white and black that tends to look best on mesh or Flyknit, when it can be mixed into the material seamlessly. Nike*s Vapormax silhouette has been dressed in two different Oreo colorways, with one sporting primarily black, and the other white. Once again, the Swoosh has drawn up another nod to milk*s favorite cookie by way of the Vapormax 2.0. Much like the former of the two aforementioned schemes, the offering you see below dons more black than it does white, incouding on the newly redesigned Swoosh that is much smaller than the logo featured its predecessor. Stay tuned to Sneaker News for release information regarding this new Oreo-flavored design.?Though Kerr isn't exactly fibbing, there is more to this than merely change for the sake of change. A peek at some of the numbers indicates there is at least one valid reason for making a midseason revision to the game-day schedule.. LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers are in complete and total disarray, and the star forward reportedly is very unhappy with the return the team got in the trade for Kyrie Irving. The star guard demanded a trade this past offseason in order to get out of James* shadow, and Cleveland ended up trading him to the Boston Celtics for Isaiah Thomas, Ante Zizic, Jae Crowder and the Brooklyn Nets* 2018 first-round draft pick. And as the Cavs continue their downward spiral, James reportedly is ※pissed off§ the Cavs didn*t pull the trigger on a trade that would have netted them a lot more than Thomas, according to ESPN*s Brian Windhorst. ※What*s really pissing LeBron off is that he felt like the Cavs.Nick Foles is one win away from being a Super Bowl champion. If that doesn't sum up 2017 or any other wildly unpredictable NFL season, then what does? The Philadelphia Eagles seemed almost destined for a long-awaited title run when their second-year phenom, the one and only Carson Wentz, took the team to nine straight wins and an 11-2 record before injuring his knee, and yet here we are, Bill Belichick and Tom Brady around the corner, and Foles commanding the NFC's last remaining hope to unseat the New England Patriots. Now if Foles has any chance of besting Belichick and Brady on the season's biggest stage, under the season's brightest lights, he'll probably have some help from an Eagles staff.At the end of the 2017 NFL season, it was wildly apparent that Michael Crabtree was unhappy with the Oakland Raiders coaching staff. So much so, that Crabtree even pulled himself out of the team's final game. Obviously, the backlash was pretty severe, and even in the week or so leading up to the final game or two, reports came out that the Raiders were going to part ways with Crabtree during the upcoming offseason. Part of this may have played a role in Crabtree's frustrations, and spoke with quarterback Derek Carr about the entire situation surrounding the team's talented wide receiver. As cited, Carr had an interesting response to question about Crabtree. Carr's statement at the bottom about.Keith Law ESPN Senior Writer Close Senior baseball analyst for Insider Was special asst. to Blue Jays GM Wrote for Baseball Prospectus Follow on Twitter The Marlins did a good trade! They got three legitimate prospects back for Christian Yelich, and the fourth isn't nothing, which makes this the best trade they've made in this cash-grab offseason. Lewis Brinson, the No. 32 prospect in baseball for 2018, is a plus-plus defender in center with great bat speed and big raw power, with staying healthy his main problem so far in pro ball. He should be able to step in immediately to play center in Miami, which would also allow the Marlins to send Magneuris Sierra to the minors to continue developing.Isn*t this perfect? The XFL, which will start in 2020 as announced by WWE CEO Vince McMahon on Thursday, will need recognizable players. Manziel needs a job and the former Heisman Trophy winner is certainly recognizable.There*s one possible stumbling block. McMahon made it clear players with criminal records wouldn*t be allowed in his league (and, of course, political statements such as kneeling during the anthem won*t be allowed either), a shot across the bow of the NFL. Manziel was charged with assault for an incident with his ex-girlfriend in 2016, but those charges were dropped in November of 2017 after he attended anger management classes, attended a domestic violence victim impact panel and went into a drug and alcohol rehabilitation program. Manziel was also arrested after a fight in 2012, when he was at Texas A&M, and he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge..But the seventh-place team in the Western Conference does pose many of the same challenges the Mavs (16-32) witnessed firsthand in Wednesday night's 104-97 loss to the Rockets.. adidas* futuristic Twinstrike ADV silhouette is getting dressed up in a colorful style with red, blue, and green, adorning the unconventional model*s upper. Lightweight Climacool nylon mesh gives the sneaker a breathable effect that adds to its increased comfort, while its unique lacing system with flexible eyelets allows for a signature lockdown fit. Finally, its unique podded midsole adds an energized cushioning system that keeps its wearer supported and comfortable throughout an entire day.

While sharing distinct similarities to the NMD line, this new-look design also boasts a unique upper that sets it apart from the rest. Its truly unique lacing system is its most notable feature as there are only three eyelets on each side with one touching down all the way to its midsole. An oversized tongue label tops the model off adorned in premium leather while also showing the brand*s roots, with most of its writing being in German..We just want to make sure that we really deliver a multi-directional shoe. In terms of traction, we want to make sure that it*s tuned perfectly so that any direction Paul or any player wants to go, it*s there for him. We just make sure he*s locked in, and all players need to be locked in. When he*s coming down the court and popping those threes or coming around those screens really hard, he really likes that snug fit on the heel so he*s not slipping inside the shoe. His needs didn*t change from the PG1, but we always talk about ※evolution vs. revolution§, kinda like what you see with the Kobe line where Eric Avar will tweak the shoe a little bit to make it a little better each time out. We try to do that, and it*s definitely more challenging at the 0 price-point than it is at the Kobe price-point, but I think we*ve been able to improve every part of the shoe.. In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. day, Nike and NBA players around the league are honoring the holiday*s namesake with a slew of Player Edition sneakers that further the Swoosh*s Black History Month aesthetic. Equipped with the colors of the Pan-African flag, players the likes of Jahlil Okafor and Eric Bledsoe have been seen in the Nike Zoom Live 2 and the LeBron Solider 11 respectively for BHM. Similar to the pairs that released at retail, the Soldier 11 sports a significant date in African American history 每 Barack Obama*s election date. Nike*s Kobe AD 每 worn by Kyle Kuzma 每 was featured today as well, with a dipped in gold Swoosh that matches the rest of the drops..Jae has been playing good the last few games and it has nothing to do with Jae," Lue said. "He's been great. He's all about the right things. He's all about the team."You hate to make these changes. Not saying it's permanent, but he's about the team. Went and talked to him this morning and he said, 'Whatever is best for the team. I'm all in.' It was a great talk with him."Crowder has underperformed this season -- his first with the Cavs. Traded by Boston along with Thomas, Ante Zizic and two draft picks for Kyrie Irving, Crowder's scoring, shooting, rebounding and defensive numbers are all down from a year ago. And his defensive rating of 112 is by far the worst of his career..

Jordan Brand has officially unveiled its first collaboration of 2018, one that pairs two American giants of apparel for an incredible two-piece collection. Included in this set is the Air Jordan 4 Retro built with Levi*s denim, gum bottoms, and Levi*s red tab branding for that signature look, while the classic Trucker Jacket is treated with a nylon ※flight suit§ interior for a fully reversible stance. Perhaps the most impressive detail is the tan ※Two Horses§ patch, which has been modified to include the Jumpman logo for a true one-of-one feel... Since the original debut of the Air Jordan 1 in 1985,. Due to Thomas* hip injury, and Lue electing to bring Thompson off the bench after his mid-December return from a calf strain that knocked him out of the lineup for five weeks, we haven*t seen a ton of that particular 1-5 pairing 〞 65 minutes in eight games, with the Cavs getting outscored by a smooth 21 points in that time. Similarly, the new starting five 〞 Thompson-Love-James-Smith-Thomas 〞 has only shared the floor for eight minutes, so it*s going to need some time to work out the kinks and develop some rhythm..Last week, Jordan Brand set up shop at Spring Studios in NYC*s Tribeca neighborhood to officially present their upcoming footwear for the Spring season. Air Jordan Retros, new colorways of the Air Jordan 32, and Russell Westbrook*s first signature shoe, the Jordan Why Not Zer0.1, are all confirmed to release from now through March. Of course there*s much more beyond what*s pictured here; Jordan Brand is set to release its official collaboration with Levi*s on Wednesday, January 17th, the Black Cement 3s are scheduled for February 17th, and more is certainly in store for All-Star Weekend in Los Angeles. See the preview below and chime in with what you think is the best of the bunch.Jordan Brand*s ※Season Of Her§ Spring collection is getting things started with an extensive Air Jordan 1 collection that comes built with premium materials and tonal pastel colorways. Satin and suede take center stage on these designs, as the Jumpman adds a luxurious aesthetic to the iconic silhouette, meant to embody the spirit and strength of the growing female sneakerhead demographic. Ranging from Ice Peach to Purple Earth, and virtually every color in between, fans of this collection will have ten choices to choose from, all equipped with a white midsole, a color appropriate semi-translucent outsole, and a boldly embroidered midfoot Swoosh.

In the past it has dressed up numerous silhouettes including the Air Jordan 9, which until now remained exclusively in Jordan*s PE catalog. Now, for the first time that model is making its way to the public primarily draped in black with subtle touches of red on its Jumpman branding. Another Jordan 9 releasing as part of the Spring collection is the LA All-Star offering that sports a black and white color scheme with a map of Los Angeles emblazoned on its insole. LA*s Jordan 9 is slated to drop on February 3rd, while the ※Bred§ currently has no release date. In the meantime enjoy an official set of images below and keep it locked for updates..

He*s also been anchored by a lower-body injury the past several months, missing 21 games up to this point in the season. Jagr stayed home for the Flames* recent four-game road swing, and was a scratch the last two contests prior to the trip..J. Crew and New Balance are back teaming together on the iconic 998 silhouette once again with the upcoming ※National Parks§ Pack. Honoring Crater Lake and Death Valley, both selections pay homage to the preserved lands that feature some of the most beautiful scenes in the entire world. The brand*s have always worked well together in the past, creating unique looks the likes of their ※Hilltop Blues※, and ※Beach Balls§ creations. With environmentally appropriate color schemes, the Crater Lake iteration dons an icy blue colorway while the Death Valley pair is dressed in earthy brown tones. As usual with these two brands, quality is a must, which comes across masterfully here as the two 998s are adorned in premium suede with other materials mixed in as well.Russell Westbrook*s first signature sneaker recently made its global debut, initially dropping the the limited Mirror Image colorway that sported graphic detailing on its upper highlighting Brodie*s partnership with the Jumpman.

Grab an up close look at this specially made pair for Jordan*s Tar Heels above and tune into their game tomorrow against Georgia Tech to see if they lace them up on the court.. How Lewis arrived to the Patriots has been touched on in this space in the past, but Belichick went into some detail on that process again Wednesday, singling out Lombardi, a former assistant to the Patriots coaching staff and one-time Browns general manager. "Dion, very productive at Pitt," Belichick said, "we all saw that, went to Cleveland, got off to a fast start, got injured, missed most of the [year]. Then, again, it was Mike Lombardi. Mike was here. Mike was with him and saw him, and same thing I just talked about Danny with Josh . . . Mike saw that with Cleveland.. ※You get to know each and every one of the prospects we talked about and we*re months away from this process,§ Dorsey said. ※We*re at the beginning stages.

That*s how I look at this.§Asked if it was safe to say he was taking a quarterback first, he replied: ※It*s safe to say &you never know.§But you kind of know. And at least this time, he has a choice to make.Now, the legend has, at the very least, played his last game for the Calgary Flames. So how did a relationship that started with so much promise end so abruptly? There*s no one answer, but rather a few driving factors that have led to Jagr*s imminent departure from Calgary.As a slow-footed &old guy* in a speed-emphasized, young man*s NHL, production trumps everything. Unfortunately for Jagr and the Flames, his offensive-output has dropped dramatically just one season removed from a 46-point (0.56 PPG) campaign with the Panthers. Through 22 games with Calgary, Jagr*s point-per-game pace of 0.31 is the worst of his career, as is his minuscule 3.1 shooting percentage. His primary point production has dropped off mightily, too, with his primary-points-per-60 (all situations) falling over 30 percent to 1.05 this season from 1.55 in 2016-17.There are reasons for this monumental drop in offensive production that extend far beyond Jagr*s dwindling skillset. A decline in ice time and a lack of opportunities in choice situations has certainly effected Jagr*s output, as has an unusual run-in with the injury bug, which the soon-to-be 46-year-old has avoided for the majority of his 24-season NHL career.Since arriving on youth-laden Flames club, Jagr has seen his overall ice time lessened by almost 25 percent. His 13:03 TOI this season is over four minutes less than the 17:06 he averaged the past three seasons, with the majority of that coming at even strength, and while skating on the Flames* third and fourth lines. Jagr has played just 34:51 on the power play through 22 games this season, an average of just over a minute-and-a-half per game. Last season with the Panthers, Jagr averaged just under three minutes TOI per contest with his team a man up.Offensive output along with opportunities to produce are down big time, and maybe the biggest reason for that is Jagr*s inability to stay healthy as he has his entire career. Though he was just a young-buck at the tender age of 44-45, Jagr dressed in all 82 games for Florida last season, the sixth time in his career that he*s suited up for every single one of his team*s contests. The eight-time All Star has dressed in at least 75 games an astonishing 16 campaigns during his career, and has missed just 20 of 458 games (4.4%) since his 39-year-old season in 2012-13. This season alone, Jagr has been sidelined for a whopping 49% of Calgary*s game, missing 21 contests with a lingering lower-body injury which has plagued the two-time Stanley Cup champion for the better part of four months.NASCAR fans are used to hearing controversial things out of Kyle Busch*s mouth 〞 not his brother*s. Well, that changed this week. During the NASCAR Media Tour in Charlotte, N.C., on Tuesday, Kyle said the sport*s emphasis on marketing young drivers is ※stupid.§ Fellow drivers ripped the ever-opinionated Kyle for the comments, but NASCAR itself said the remarks were ※fair.§ Enter Kyle*s brother, Kurt Busch. During a recent appearance on the Domenik Nati Show, Kurt attempted to rationalize his brothers comments. ※I agree with certain aspects of what he*s challenged, and then I disagree with other parts of it,§ Kurt said.

Rafa Nadal stole headlines earlier in the tournament when he wore a sleeveless shirt at the Australian Open recently. It is not a look that Federer dares to replicate. The reason is quite simple, according to Federer. World number one-ranked tennis player Rafa Nadal caused a racket this month. Not because he was forced to withdraw from the Australian Open due to injury, but because he went on the court to play wearing a sleeveless shirt. It is not a trend we can expect Nadal's playing rival Roger Federer to replicate. Not because Federer doesn't love Nadal's.Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer Close Previously worked at Indianapolis Star, covering the Indiana Pacers for nine seasons Also covered Vikings for St. Paul Pioneer Press Follow on Twitter Mike Wells: I think there*s a pretty chance that NC State defensive lineman Bradley Chubb will still be on the board when the Indianapolis Colts draft at No. 3 overall. That*s because the Cleveland Browns and the New York Giants, the teams with the top two picks, both need quarterbacks for the present or the future. The bigger concern -- if you want to call it that -- is that the Colts might not be in the position to choose between Chubb and Penn State running back Saquon Barkley at No. 3. Indianapolis needs help.Mike Schmitz ESPN With 21-year-old rookie stat-stuffer Ben Simmons and 23-year-old All-Star starter Joel Embiid as cornerstones, the Philadelphia 76ers have one of the most exciting young cores in the NBA. Sprinkle in high-level role starters such as Dario Saric (23) and Robert Covington (27), and young bench contributors T.J. McConnell (25) and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot (22) and there's reason for the optimism flowing through Philly, even with prized No. 1 pick Markelle Fultz yet to regain form. The Sixers are competitive (No. 7 in the East) while still sitting on young talent and future assets. But with all the well-deserved focus on Philly's talented, young roster and its future draft picks,2018 Dallas Cowboys Mock Draft Tracker - John Hancock, DallasNews Ten experts make their draft predictions for who they believe the Cowboys will select with the 19th overall pick. Here's from Mel Kiper Jr.'s pick: The rest of the experts are picking the following players: DT Maurice Hurst (3), DT Da'Ron Payne (2), DT Christian Wilkins [did not enter the draft], WR Michael Gallup, WR Christian Kirk, S Derwin James, Check out the write-up on each in the orginal article. If you've ever watched the Cowboy war room when they are on the clock in the second round, you can usually see them pretty excited about a player still left on the board. Last year, that excitement came from Chidobe Awuzie, A couple weeks ago, Matt Provenzano went over how the Yankees looked according to Dan Szymborski*s ZiPS projections. Spoiler alert: they look good. Projections are not a fail-safe, and reality will always diverge from what is forecast. That the Yankees project demonstrably better now than they did in recent years, however, can only be taken as a good sign. There are other teams the Yankees must contend with, however. Chief among them are the Red Sox. Indeed, Boston has won the AL East each of the past two seasons. No matter how good the Yankees look moving forward, the Red Sox are still here, and they must be taken seriously. Just how seriously? It helps to once again turn to ZiPS to get a feel.It*s the worst-kept secret in the NBA that the Los Angeles Lakers have plans on luring two big free agents this summer, but in order to do so they will need to clear some salary cap space. Jordan Clarkson and Julius Randle have been mentioned ad nauseum as potential trade candidates, but a somewhat surprising inclusion recently was Larry Nance Jr. Once called the team*s secret weapon by president of basketball operations Magic Johnson, Nance began the season as a starter, but now comes off the bench. Either way, he constantly provides excellent defense and hustle, even as his offensive game hasn*t developed as much as many had hoped, himself included. Many viewed the Lakers possibly shopping.The Cavaliers' Dwyane Wade posted an emotional farewell to Instagram on Saturday after the passing of his agent Henry "Hank" Thomas. A representative from Thomas' agency, CAA, confirmed his passing to Sports Illustrated. Wade had missed the Cavaliers game on Friday night against the Pacers with a "family emergency."

These are the one remaining free-agent fit for every team. The Royals have re-signed Alcides Escobar. The Mets have re-signed veteran infielder Jose Reyes. As reported by our Sports Boy Wonder Chris Cotillo,The Cardinals have been fairly quiet since their Dec. 14 trade for Marcell Ozuna. While the Ozuna addition surely moves the needle when it comes to the Cardinals' chances of making the postseason in 2018, needs remain. Mostly, the focus has been on third base. While you can certainly argue that a known quantity in the infield is called for, I'd argue the rotation presents more of a need. Here's why that's the case ... 1. The Cardinals have lost a lot of starts from last season. In keeping with ancient tradition and the rulebook, the Cardinals played 162 games in 2017. Lance Lynn and Mike Leake combined to start 59 of those 162 games, or 36.4 percent of them. Lynn is of course one of the many..The impressive Nike Zoom Fly SP is coming out with new colorways this January as this stylish ※Royal§ colorway hits select stores across the globe.

To put the Epic React to the test, Nike invited select media/influencers/bloggers to a special product unveiling in NYC with an obstacle course. A foam pit with soft cubes, a mini-relay with pillars made of tires, a wind tunnel with feathers, and a bouncy platform to test hops were stationed 每 all with the purpose of trial-ing the new running shoe in four different environments of mobility. To give the shoes a more real-world test, I walked back from the event space to the office; throughout the 1.2 miles the shoes produced a forward-propelling effect 每 the so-called ※energy return§ aspect 每 that kept me light on my toes. REACT foam is much softer than traditional EVA foam, so Nike had to make the sole thicker to prevent it from flattening over time 每 a common problem with other foam-based cushioning units in the market today. Despite its thickness, the support on the Foam is zonal so there is not ※boat§-ish feel to them. As a casual everyday shoe, the Epic React is definitely recommended.. The Cavs are reeling, losing two straight and 11 of the last 15 games.

While the Roadsta is usually dressed in boisterous color schemes 每 the likes of its previous Pharrell collaborations 每 this design sports a relatively monochromatic patent leather construction.

As of now there is no release information available for the Stampd x BAPE Roadsta, but keep it locked to Sneaker News for updates.. The three-dimensional pattern that spans the entire outsole and midsole sidewall of the shoe is computational design derived from a thousands of data inputs of pressure maps, which the Nike Sports Research Lab combined into one algorithm. There*s additional traction at the toe and heel for added stability, while the heel support at the top of the midsole is a nod to the Nike Internationalist, the running sneaker that debuted the horseshoe-shaped TPU mold. A sock-like snug upper made of a stretchy knit, a low ankle cut collar around the ankle bone, and the extended lip at the heel for stability is a working formula for what runners need today. Nike pointed specifically at the Flyknit Racer as a guide to the design, while noting the slim-looking toe from the Vapormax. Basically there*s a lot of in-house next-level science behind the design, which Nike prides itself in.. Last June, Under Armour officially announced a collaborative partnership with rapper and fashion designer A$AP Rocky.

You can mark your calendars for January 27th, which is when this pair is slated to release, but if you cannot wait and you happen to be a size 10, you can buy a pair today from Stadium Goods.. Jordan Brand is ready to start 2018 with a bang as the long-awaited sequel to the 2007 collaboration with Levi*s is set to release on January 17th. The Air Jordan 4, draped completely in denim, takes on some of the Levi*s brand DNA by way of custom leather patches on the tongue, leather labels on the inner tongues, contrast stitching in golden yellow, and the signature red-tab branding that emulates a classic pair of jeans. A stylish contrast is achieved by reversing the denim fabric on the tongue, side panel, and interior lining, while a white/gum outsole combination adds to the blue-collar appeal. The shoes will release worldwide at select retailers, with select stores releasing the accompanying Trucker Jacket in limited quantity. See the official store list ahead and don*t forget to enter as many raffles as you can, because copping a pair won*t be easy.jordan women running shoes,No, this is not another Air Jordan 1 Royal offering. While it may look like it from afar, that is actually Obsidian featured on this Air Jordan 1 Mid design, not black. Utilizing the same color blocking scheme as its Illustrious ※Royal§ predecessor, this particular model sports exaggerated tumbled leather on its Royal Blue panelling and Jumpman branding on its tongue tab as opposed to the more preferred Nike Air logo. Much like the ※Reverse Banned§ colorway that was first previewed last month, this selection utilizes a very popular aesthetic in the Jordan Brand*s history. Currently there is not specific release information available regarding this Air Jordan 1 Mid, but stay tuned to Sneaker News for any and all updates.! But you kind of know. And at least this time, he has a choice to make.?Talib had 31 tackles and an interception return for a touchdown during the 2017 season. He has six interception returns for a touchdown overall since joining the Broncos and was selected for his fifth straight Pro Bowl this season.Since Dejounte Murray replaced Tony Parker in the starting lineup last Sunday, I*ve been curious to see how San Antonio*s offense would look to start games. Even at 35-years-old, Parker remains the Spurs* most dynamic and prolific playmaker, particularly in the half court. Per Second Spectrum data, Parker averages a team-high 10.4 drives per game, and shoots a blistering 53.7% on shots off those drives, one of the best marks in the league among high-volume drivers. Not only is he efficient on those shots, Parker also assists on more than 13% of his drives, the highest percentage on the team. Murray has considerable upside and plenty of strengths, but they mostly manifest on the defensive end.. The Browns have four picks in the top 35 of the 2018 NFL Draft, but the biggest question they have to answer is how to use the first one, in an effort to find the elusive franchise quarterback..Following last year*s Air Jordan 13 Oregon PE, it appears that the Swoosh brand has hooked the Ducks up again with another exclusive of that same silhouette. Most significantly, the signature Jordan 13 hologram has been replaced with an Oregon logo to mach the giant ※O§ embroidered on this offering*s tongue while being dressed up in grey suede with white leather detailing. Dubbed the ※Mathew Knight§ PE, this new look pays homage to nike founder Phil Knight*s son. Oregon*s basketball arena is also named after Mathew Knight, furthering the well-documented relationship between brand and school. Grab a look at the PE here and enjoy it, because this is likely the closest you will ever get to a pair..Now, the legend has, at the very least, played his last game for the Calgary Flames. So how did a relationship that started with so much promise end so abruptly? There*s no one answer, but rather a few driving factors that have led to Jagr*s imminent departure from Calgary.As a slow-footed &old guy* in a speed-emphasized, young man*s NHL, production trumps everything. Unfortunately for Jagr and the Flames, his offensive-output has dropped dramatically just one season removed from a 46-point (0.56 PPG) campaign with the Panthers. Through 22 games with Calgary, Jagr*s point-per-game pace of 0.31 is the worst of his career, as is his minuscule 3.1 shooting percentage. His primary point production has dropped off mightily, too, with his primary-points-per-60 (all situations) falling over 30 percent to 1.05 this season from 1.55 in 2016-17.There are reasons for this monumental drop in offensive production that extend far beyond Jagr*s dwindling skillset. A decline in ice time and a lack of opportunities in choice situations has certainly effected Jagr*s output, as has an unusual run-in with the injury bug, which the soon-to-be 46-year-old has avoided for the majority of his 24-season NHL career.Since arriving on youth-laden Flames club, Jagr has seen his overall ice time lessened by almost 25 percent. His 13:03 TOI this season is over four minutes less than the 17:06 he averaged the past three seasons, with the majority of that coming at even strength, and while skating on the Flames* third and fourth lines. Jagr has played just 34:51 on the power play through 22 games this season, an average of just over a minute-and-a-half per game. Last season with the Panthers, Jagr averaged just under three minutes TOI per contest with his team a man up.Offensive output along with opportunities to produce are down big time, and maybe the biggest reason for that is Jagr*s inability to stay healthy as he has his entire career. Though he was just a young-buck at the tender age of 44-45, Jagr dressed in all 82 games for Florida last season, the sixth time in his career that he*s suited up for every single one of his team*s contests. The eight-time All Star has dressed in at least 75 games an astonishing 16 campaigns during his career, and has missed just 20 of 458 games (4.4%) since his 39-year-old season in 2012-13. This season alone, Jagr has been sidelined for a whopping 49% of Calgary*s game, missing 21 contests with a lingering lower-body injury which has plagued the two-time Stanley Cup champion for the better part of four months.NASCAR fans are used to hearing controversial things out of Kyle Busch*s mouth 〞 not his brother*s. Well, that changed this week. During the NASCAR Media Tour in Charlotte, N.C., on Tuesday, Kyle said the sport*s emphasis on marketing young drivers is ※stupid.§ Fellow drivers ripped the ever-opinionated Kyle for the comments, but NASCAR itself said the remarks were ※fair.§ Enter Kyle*s brother, Kurt Busch. During a recent appearance on the Domenik Nati Show, Kurt attempted to rationalize his brothers comments. ※I agree with certain aspects of what he*s challenged, and then I disagree with other parts of it,§ Kurt said. But what I think he*s trying to say is we*re promoting these guys, and they.Roger Federer completed his latest domination of the Aussie Open with a 5-set win in the Final on Sunday, his 20th career Grand Slam title. Rafa Nadal stole headlines earlier in the tournament when he wore a sleeveless shirt at the Australian Open recently. It is not a look that Federer dares to replicate. The reason is quite simple, according to Federer. World number one-ranked tennis player Rafa Nadal caused a racket this month. Not because he was forced to withdraw from the Australian Open due to injury, but because he went on the court to play wearing a sleeveless shirt. It is not a trend we can expect Nadal's playing rival Roger Federer to replicate. Not because Federer doesn't love Nadal's.Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer Close Previously worked at Indianapolis Star, covering the Indiana Pacers for nine seasons Also covered Vikings for St. Paul Pioneer Press Follow on Twitter Mike Wells: I think there*s a pretty chance that NC State defensive lineman Bradley Chubb will still be on the board when the Indianapolis Colts draft at No. 3 overall. That*s because the Cleveland Browns and the New York Giants, the teams with the top two picks, both need quarterbacks for the present or the future. The bigger concern -- if you want to call it that -- is that the Colts might not be in the position to choose between Chubb and Penn State running back Saquon Barkley at No. 3. Indianapolis needs help.Mike Schmitz ESPN With 21-year-old rookie stat-stuffer Ben Simmons and 23-year-old All-Star starter Joel Embiid as cornerstones, the Philadelphia 76ers have one of the most exciting young cores in the NBA. Sprinkle in high-level role starters such as Dario Saric (23) and Robert Covington (27), and young bench contributors T.J. McConnell (25) and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot (22) and there's reason for the optimism flowing through Philly, even with prized No. 1 pick Markelle Fultz yet to regain form. The Sixers are competitive (No. 7 in the East) while still sitting on young talent and future assets. But with all the well-deserved focus on Philly's talented, young roster and its future draft picks,2018 Dallas Cowboys Mock Draft Tracker - John Hancock, DallasNews Ten experts make their draft predictions for who they believe the Cowboys will select with the 19th overall pick. Here's from Mel Kiper Jr.'s pick: The rest of the experts are picking the following players: DT Maurice Hurst (3), DT Da'Ron Payne (2), DT Christian Wilkins [did not enter the draft], WR Michael Gallup, WR Christian Kirk, S Derwin James, Check out the write-up on each in the orginal article. If you've ever watched the Cowboy war room when they are on the clock in the second round, you can usually see them pretty excited about a player still left on the board. Last year, that excitement came from Chidobe Awuzie, A couple weeks ago, Matt Provenzano went over how the Yankees looked according to Dan Szymborski*s ZiPS projections. Spoiler alert: they look good. Projections are not a fail-safe, and reality will always diverge from what is forecast. That the Yankees project demonstrably better now than they did in recent years, however, can only be taken as a good sign. There are other teams the Yankees must contend with, however. Chief among them are the Red Sox. Indeed, Boston has won the AL East each of the past two seasons. No matter how good the Yankees look moving forward, the Red Sox are still here, and they must be taken seriously. Just how seriously? It helps to once again turn to ZiPS to get a feel.It*s the worst-kept secret in the NBA that the Los Angeles Lakers have plans on luring two big free agents this summer, but in order to do so they will need to clear some salary cap space. Jordan Clarkson and Julius Randle have been mentioned ad nauseum as potential trade candidates, but a somewhat surprising inclusion recently was Larry Nance Jr. Once called the team*s secret weapon by president of basketball operations Magic Johnson, Nance began the season as a starter, but now comes off the bench. Either way, he constantly provides excellent defense and hustle, even as his offensive game hasn*t developed as much as many had hoped, himself included. Many viewed the Lakers possibly shopping.The Cavaliers' Dwyane Wade posted an emotional farewell to Instagram on Saturday after the passing of his agent Henry "Hank" Thomas. A representative from Thomas' agency, CAA, confirmed his passing to Sports Illustrated. Wade had missed the Cavaliers game on Friday night against the Pacers with a "family emergency." In the post, Wade wrote about how Thomas served as a father figure to him and he wished he would be there for the next moments in his life. A post shared by dwyanewade (@dwyanewade) on Jan 27, 2018 at 12:32pm PST Coach Tyronn Lue said Friday that general manager Koby Altman talked with Wade and told him to "take his time" with the issue.

Does no one else see the awkwardness here? We*re not going to sugar coat it〞the stove is so cold it*s actually a freezer. But is there light at the end of this frigid tunnel? These are the one remaining free-agent fit for every team. The Royals have re-signed Alcides Escobar. The Mets have re-signed veteran infielder Jose Reyes. As reported by our Sports Boy Wonder Chris Cotillo,The Cardinals have been fairly quiet since their Dec. 14 trade for Marcell Ozuna. While the Ozuna addition surely moves the needle when it comes to the Cardinals' chances of making the postseason in 2018, needs remain. Mostly, the focus has been on third base. While you can certainly argue that a known quantity in the infield is called for, I'd argue the rotation presents more of a need. Here's why that's the case ... 1. The Cardinals have lost a lot of starts from last season. In keeping with ancient tradition and the rulebook, the Cardinals played 162 games in 2017. Lance Lynn and Mike Leake combined to start 59 of those 162 games, or 36.4 percent of them. Lynn is of course one of the many..Durant photoshopped an image of James onto his shirt, using the same image he used to announce his signing with the Warriors in 2016. It was also the same title -- My Next Chapter -- as the Players' Tribune article he wrote for the announcement. Adding some more fun to the game, Durant wrote, "I'm coming for you Stephen." And did he announce he was the No. 1 pick in the draft between Curry and James? It appears so..USA Today senior college football analyst Dan Wolken published his CFB Playoff predictions for the 2018 season Tuesday and he went all chalk ... almost. Wolken likes Clemson, Alabama, Ohio State and Washington to get to the final four, the same group of teams that reached the Playoff at the end of the 2016 season. : Early 2018 Heisman Trophy odds The Buckeyes' biggest threat in the Big Ten is Michigan State, not Wisconsin, he says and believes the Spartans could benefit from quarterback uncertainty at Michigan and personnel losses at Penn State. As for the possibility of Alabama-Clemson Part IV, Wolken writes: "We*ll see how long it takes before people grow tired of this, but you should go ahead.Jerry Montgomery*s time with Texas A&M didn*t last long. Just a few weeks after agreeing to be the new associate head coach and defensive line coach for the Aggies, Montgomery decided to return to Green Bay to serve as Mike McCarthy*s defensive line coach with the Packers. The Packers announced his new position in Green Bay on Wednesday. ※It was the right move for me and my family,§ Montgomery said, according to Ryan Wood of PackersNews.com. ※I got on a plane, got back and met with Coach. Now I*m here, and I*m excited to work with the guys. Love the room, love the outside of the room, and look forward to developing the young guys and getting them where the older guys are.§ Montgomery had served.Ryan McGee ESPN Senior Writer Close Senior writer for ESPN The Magazine and ESPN.com 2-time Sports Emmy winner 2010, 2014 NMPA Writer of the Year Follow on Twitter CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Young guys vs. old guys. Same as it ever was. When the 2018 NASCAR Media Tour started, no one had a clue what topic would emerge to dominate the annual handful of days stock car racing sets aside to do some talking and writing and more talking and then more writing. In years past, the theme has been an easy guess. But this year there was no kickoff news conference from NASCAR itself. There was no big change to the postseason format (thank heavens), no series title sponsorship announcement, no nothing. No touchstone..Last night, in San Antonio, Lebron James scored his 30,000th point becoming the youngest NBA player to do so. Over the course of the last few months there have been quite a few rumors circling about Lebron James* wanting to join the Houston Rockets. Bleacher Report, a trusted sports source, wrote THIS article talking about the possibility of it happening but the rumors seemed to only circle among Houston Rocket fans. This morning, I received a text from my cousin who lives in Cleveland that the Lebron James trade rumors had begun to surface IN CLEVELAND, too. Now, my cousin is not on the inside and was merely texting me what he*d heard around town amongst his friends and colleagues. He misspelled.MELBOURNE (Reuters) - South Korea's Chung Hyeon is a frightening prospect who can intimidate opponents but will not be able to trouble Roger Federer in their Australian Open semi-final, according to former champion Mats Wilander.The bespectacled 21-year-old, conqueror of six-times Australian Open winner Novak Djokovic, is already being compared to his Serbian victim with opponents finding it nigh on impossible to get the ball past his defenses.

Featuring Carbon*s ※4D§ printed outsole, this upcoming sneaker by Yohji Yamamoto features an all-black Primeknit upper with the exposed workings of the lacing structure and an exterior leather heel counter. There*s also leather support piece at the medial toe, but the real attraction is the color-blocked Futurecraft sole that sees the light green with a blacked out midfoot. This model first debuted last June during adidas Y-3*s Spring/Summer 2018 line, but the tongue logos on this version features a simpler Y-3 logo.

  • Most teams utilize shootarounds on the mornings of night games, but some have backed off. The Rockets decided in November that they would forgo shootarounds after coach Mike D'Antoni noticed they displayed more energy on nights when there was no morning session.The Warriors haven't declared whether this is a one-game experiment or something more. That likely will be determined by the team's response, beginning Thursday night against the Timberwolves.

  • We should point out that of course Boras is going to rail against teams not spending. It*s his job to get players paid.But his point, while harsh, isn*t totally wrong. Fans shouldn*t accept that one-third of teams are already conceding 2018, especially when they aren*t re-investing that money to improve their clubs elsewhere.

  • Ninety minutes after the game, a Warriors spokesperson announced there would not be a shootaround on Thursday.
    How Lewis arrived to the Patriots has been touched on in this space in the past, but Belichick went into some detail on that process again Wednesday, singling out Lombardi, a former assistant to the Patriots coaching staff and one-time Browns general manager. "Dion, very productive at Pitt," Belichick said, "we all saw that, went to Cleveland, got off to a fast start, got injured, missed most of the [year]. Then, again, it was Mike Lombardi. Mike was here. Mike was with him and saw him, and same thing I just talked about Danny with Josh . . . Mike saw that with Cleveland."We've got to shore some things up getting ready to play against Portland, which is a team that's similar (to Houston)," Mavs guard Wesley Matthews said. "They've got guys that can create their own shot and shoot the 3-ball as well. Portland beat us making 18 3s. Houston made 21, so obviously we've got to take the 3-ball out of the game.

  • Setting aside the ways in which that might further complicate an already delicate situation 〞 a demotion just eight games removed from significant injury likely wouldn*t sit well with Thomas, a proud vet who*s also staring down the barrel of unrestricted free agency and has been very open about his need for more reps and more time to get back to his All-Star form 〞 there*s also the nettlesome matter of Cleveland*s failings not really being Thomas* fault. Hardly anyone in the Cavs rotation has held up his end of the bargain of late 〞 including, for what it*s worth, Thompson, who hasn*t often been his typically bruising and energetic self off the bench.
