    Getty Karl-Anthony Towns A major Chicago Bulls trade could be coming, but the team might have already missed an opportunity to pursue a blockbuster deal for the Minnesota Timberwolves’ Karl-Anthony Towns. The Bulls are mired in a dreadful stretch of play that has seen them lose 14 of their last 20 games. This swoon couldn’t be happening at a worse time as there are just two games remaining in the regular season. The Bulls have locked up a spot in the playoffs for the first time since 2017, but no matter who they face in the first round, you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone who would predict Chicago to last more than 5 games against the Boston Celtics, Philadelphia 76ers or Milwaukee Bucks. If things play out as they have over the past month-plus, the Bulls are headed for a quick exit from the playoffs and some major changes could be afoot in the offseason. Which Bulls Might Be Headed Out? It would appear the Bulls will part ways with Nikola Vucevic and Coby White, if possible. While...
    Nearly 400 U.S. citizens left behind at the end of the evacuation from Kabul have escaped Afghanistan, and all others eager to leave have been given the chance, according to Secretary of State Antony Blinken. “Since the end of the evacuation mission, we have evacuated roughly 380 Americans,” Blinken told reporters Friday. “As of the 10th of November, all U.S. citizens who have requested assistance from the United States government to depart Afghanistan and who we’ve identified as prepared to depart and having the necessary documents have been given an opportunity to do so.” Those figures exceed the estimates in the hours after the U.S. military departure from Afghanistan when Blinken acknowledged there was “a small number of Americans, under 200 and likely closer to 100, who remain in Afghanistan and want to leave.” State Department officials have emphasized those figures would change as more people surfaced and asked for assistance. However, veteran groups and other advocates for at-risk Afghan nationals have argued those totals understate the scale of the abandonment. “There was still, at the time everything imploded,...
    Fox News senior strategic analyst Gen. Jack Keane said Saturday that it’s impossible to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks and not find it “disturbing” that the Taliban is back in control of Afghanistan. WATCH: “The Taliban are in charge of Afghanistan, al-Qaida has a safe haven again,” Keane told Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom.” “ISIS will have an opportunity to grow and other foreign terrorists will have an opportunity to come to Afghanistan,” Keane continued. “So the future is uncertain as a result of what took place in Afghanistan. It looms heavy over us today and it’s uncomfortable, I think, for many who served and fought in that war to see the Taliban now in charge and it is disturbing.” (RELATED: Former Navy SEAL Who Killed Bin Laden Claims Taliban Are Torturing The Families Of Afghan Allies ‘Before They Cut Their Heads Off’) The former U.S. Army deputy chief of staff said the “implications” of the recent withdrawal from Afghanistan “loom heavy over this 9/11 ceremony” and will affect America’s “remembrance” of the 9/11 attack. “But...
    The Giants’ magic number to clinch a playoff spot for the first time since 2016 is officially in single digits. Following their three-game sweep of the Colorado Rockies earlier this week, the Giants’ magic number to earn a postseason berth is now down to eight. They own a 2½-game lead over the Los Angeles Dodgers for first place in the National League West, and their magic number to clinch their first division title in nine years is now 20 with 22 games to go. Now comes a chance to continue the momentum, as the Giants start a three-game series with Chicago Cubs today at Wrigley Field. The Dodgers start a three-game series at home tonight with the San Diego Padres. “I know that the Dodgers are winning baseball games. Totally aware of it,” Giants manager Gabe Kapler said after his team’s 7-4 win on Wednesday at Coors Field. “We’re totally focused on our club and the work that we’ve been doing.” Kapler is planning to have the bullpen cover every inning of Friday’s opener and Kevin...

This article is part of our series "The Gold Plan," which highlights Olympians and their values.

    California candidate Caitlyn Jenner, who stunned entertainment and political news alike by coming out against biological men in women’s sports last week, formerly said that every transgender person should have an opportunity to compete in sports. “I think every trans person, if they’re into athletics, should have an opportunity to compete and to improve themselves,” Jenner said in 2020. “I think sports is such a great way to learn a lot about yourself. And yeah, I want to, hopefully they’ll have the opportunity in the future to do whatever they can do. I’m all for it. I’m all for it.” The Olympic gold medalist, TV personality and transgender rights activist’s former comments do not directly conflict with the statements that Jenner made last week, but they have prompted transgender activists to accuse Jenner of hypocrisy.

    By: KDKA-TV News Staff PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — With the Steelers set to face off against the Cleveland Browns in the wild card round of the NFL playoffs, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger opened up and discussed a number of different topics. Roethlisberger talked at length with Steelers.com writer Teresa Varley, discussing among other things, how it felt to watch last week’s game from home with his family. “I enjoyed watching the game, not as much as playing in it,” said Roethlisberger. “I sat at home and watched it with my family. I felt like my son asked me a question every single play, so I felt like I was really extra engaged in it.” Roethlisberger was among several players who head coach Mike Tomlin chose to not play in the Week 17 game, opting instead to rest those players. Roethlisberger went on to say that he is excited for the upcoming game this weekend and values every opportunity to play in the postseason.

    Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich took a knee during the national anthem on Sunday before his team's season opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars, with the former NFL quarterback later saying "white leaders really have an opportunity to step up" on the issue of social injustice. "We thought it was a unique way to express what needs to be done, where someone like myself, a white leader, would kneel, not out of defiance but out of humility," Reich told reporters after the Colts 27-20 loss in Jacksonville, Fla. "We can’t leave things the way they are." “It takes all of us, everybody, but certainly white leaders really have an opportunity to step up and make a big change as far as systemic racism is concerned," he added. Reich's players, who are predominantly Black, stood for the anthem with arms locked.

    Tory BurchPhoto by ANGELA WEISS On Monday, Tory Burch surprised 50 women across the nation with a surprise Zoom call to personally congratulate the founders on being selected for the fifth annual Tory Burch Foundation Fellows Program, which supports the empowerment of women entrepreneurs.

    In his 1838 Lyceum Address, a young Abraham Lincoln warned: At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide. In the year 2020, the United States in the Age of Trump has arrived at one such moment. Donald Trump is an authoritarian and a neofascist. Such a description does not need the modifiers of “apparent” or “would be” or “impending” or “inclinations” or “autocratic.” That language is all too often deployed by journalists and others to soften the hard blows of the full and horrible reality that the United States is a failing democracy where Donald Trump is now only barely restrained in his anti-democratic behavior by the country’s now much weakened political norms, institutions and culture. In his response to the protests and people’s uprising that was sparked by the...
