    Scotty Pippen Jr. knows the power that comes with a name — especially at the NBA combine this week in Chicago. In his early days playing basketball in Highland Park, Pippen said it was a challenge to carry the family name of Scottie Pippen, the other half of the legendary duo who lifted the Chicago Bulls to six NBA championships. Every time he lined up on the court, Pippen said parents pointed him out to their kids, encouraging them to bring their toughest game against the Hall of Famer’s son. “Growing up, I’ve always had the name,” Pippen said. “It always was a pressure on me, even being a little kid growing up in Chicago. I’m just used to it. I’m my own person. … I go out there and I compete. My dad’s not out there with me. At the end of the day, it’s my own legacy.” Pippen isn’t the same player as his father — at 6-foot-3, he stands 5 inches shorter, playing shooting guard rather than small forward — but he said his father’s guidance has...
    CRISTIANO RONALDO looked a tortured figure as he exited Old Trafford on Saturday night. With the temperature dropping and the wind and rain swirling, hundreds of fans waited for a glimpse, a selfie, an autograph. 7Cristiano Ronaldo endured a desperate afternoon on Saturday and his days as a top-class star are overCredit: Getty 7The 37-year-old looked well of the pace at Old TraffordCredit: EPA But the Portuguese star was not playing ball. In fact, he had not played ball much all day. This was as poor a Ronaldo performance as the old ground had witnessed. The truth that is now staring everyone in the face, and clearly Ronaldo himself, is that his days as a top-class footballer are over.

    Sports journalist Skip Bayless offers a heartfelt tribute to his favorite quarterback, Thomas Edward Patrick Brady Jr., on “Undisputed.” Since 2016, Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe have gone head to head on FS1’s “Undisputed.” The two hosts typically take opposing sides on contemporary sports topics, one of the most polarizing ones being the appropriate credit due to Tom Brady in wins and losses. Bayless, who constantly professes his admiration for TB12, offered a heartfelt two-minute tribute to Brady, whom he emphatically refers to as “Thomas Edward Patrick Brady Jr.” during heated arguments.

    (CNN)Even by the standards of Novak Djokovic's eventful tennis career -- replete with trophies and jaw-dropping performances, but also peppered with controversy -- the circumstances ahead of this year's Australian Open have been extraordinary. "I see life as a great learning curve," Djokovic told CNN in an interview last year, "and I feel over the years I learned how to bounce back."That ability to bounce back will be put to the test in the coming days as the world No. 1 prepares to defend his Australian Open title after a turbulent start to the year.Arriving in Australia unvaccinated but with a medical exemption to compete following a positive Covid-19 test on December 16, Djokovic spent his first five days in a detention facility in Melbourne as he mounted a legal challenge against the revocation of his visa. After his lawyers successfully argued that Djokovic had "ticked absolutely every box" for vaccine exemption with his recent Covid infection, he said his focus remains on competing in the Australian Open.Read MoreWere the 34-year-old Serbian to triumph in this year's tournament, one he...
    Gone, but not forgotten. Pace University in Westchester County unveiled a mural in their Kessel Student Center to commemorate the memory of Danroy “DJ” Henry, Jr., a student-athlete who was shot and killed by a police officer more than a decade ago. Henry, a junior defensive back on the football team at Pace University's Pleasantville campus, was at a sports bar in neighboring Thornwood with teammates when a fight broke out after their homecoming game in 11 years ago. Pleasantville police officer Aaron Hess remained at the scene, and when Henry was instructed to move his vehicle out of a fire zone, the former officer stated that he had been struck by him, landed on the hood of the car, and opened fire. Paramedics responded to the scene to treat Hess for a leg injury while Henry bled out on the pavement. Hess was not charged with any crime and was named Officer of the Year later on in the year.

    BURLESON, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – There’s a reason each practice begins with 20 jumping jacks and each workout ends with 20 pushups. And there are those who find comfort in taking photos at the 20 yard line. That is no ordinary number at Burleson High. It’s a number that will always have a very special place at the school. READ MORE: 'Federal Action Supersedes Any State Mandate' Southwest Airlines To Continue Employee Vaccine Mandate“I don’t know that I think about the number but when I see 20 I think of Tre,” said head football coach Jon Kitna. Tre Allison wore number 20 as a defensive back headed into his junior year. Those who knew him best say certain things were already mapped out in his future. Tre’s brother Jarrel Stenson says he was destined to be a “D-I athlete… going to the pros without a doubt.” Those dreams vanished the night of June 8, 2020,  when Tre was a passenger in a car that was struck by another vehicle less than a mile away from the school.

    CBS A "Big Brother" alum says Da'Vonne didn't lay the groundwork for The Cookout. Da’Vonne Rogers appeared on three seasons of “Big Brother” and was the first Black “Big Brother” contestant to win the “America’s Favorite Houseguest” prize. Rogers has been outspoken in the past about racism on “Big Brother” and is rooting for The Cookout alliance this season. Many members of The Cookout have name-dropped Rogers in the live feeds. At one point, Hannah spoke directly to the cameras, addressing Rogers and her “Big Brother” ally Bayleigh Dayton. “I wouldn’t have applied if I hadn’t seen you two play together in all-stars,” Hannah says in the video. While many fans feel that players like Rogers and Dayton paved the way for The Cookout to exist, one “Big Brother” winner doesn’t see it that way.

    Getty Udonis Haslem #40 of the Miami Heat stretches prior to the game against the New York Knicks at American Airlines Arena on February 09, 2021 in Miami, Florida. Udonis Haslem officially signed his one-year contract to return to the Miami Heat on Monday. The 6-foot-8 big man will be playing in his 19th NBA season, a franchise record.

He is also the lone undrafted player in NBA history to lead a franchise in total rebounds (5,755) and has served as Heat captain in 14 straight seasons, the longest tenure in team history.

Udonis Haslem has agreed to come back and play the game he loves so much. What he loves more than that is to be on the court...
    DENVER (CBS4) – Major League Baseball and the Colorado Rockies announced millions of dollars in legacy grants for local organizations ahead of the All-Star Game in Denver. The grants will benefit youth baseball, the U.S. military and mental health. Another legacy project helped renovate the baseball field at John F. Kennedy High School in southwest Denver. The field was in such bad shape, it was condemned two years ago. CBS4 was there for the big reveal on Friday morning.

    Getty Stephen Curry with LeBron James. One word that is repeated throughout any conversation regarding a superstar player from the NBA is legacy. Whether it’s where they rank in terms of overall players or by their position, it holds weight in how they will be remembered when their career is over. Going into their most recent game against the Los Angeles Lakers, tons of hype had been built for the matchup that put Golden State Warriors two-time MVP, Steph Curry, against Lakers star player and last season’s Finals MVP LeBron James. As a part of that hype, an ESPN analyst said James is the one player who has hurt Curry’s legacy the most out of all others. The latest Warriors news straight to your inbox!

    Nick Viall Makes Red Carpet Debut with Girlfriend Natalie Joy at the MTV Movie & TV Awards Marriott sues against unknown perpetrators to fight off fake robocalls Heading into one of the most wide-open NBA playoffs in years, nearly every superstar in the league has a chance to redefine the stories about their careers. Seven months ago, LeBron James willed the Lakers to a bubble championship, the fourth title of his career, then declared “I want my damn respect, too!” This convinced me to finally acknowledge that James is pretty good at basketball. Feel free to join me. James was referring to the MVP vote—Giannis Antetokounmpo won, and only one voter placed James first. But “I want my damn respect” would be a good slogan for the NBA playoffs every year. Basketball players have an outsized influence on how much their team wins, so we judge them for winning and losing far more than we do other team-sport athletes. When the Angels miss the playoffs, we don’t blame Mike Trout; we bemoan the lack of talent around him. But...

    US coronavirus: Five states account for 43% of new cases in the past week Three more women accuse rapper T.I. and his wife Tiny of drugging, raping and trafficking In 1975, Lee Elder became the first Black golfer to play at the Masters. This year, he returns to Augusta National for yet another historic moment. Two phone calls, 46 years apart. Both from the chairman of Augusta National Golf Club, both to the same man. The first call came in April 1974. U.S. golf had an abhorrent racial history, littered with outright segregation and de facto segregation, with ever-changing qualification rules to keep the sport as white as it could be. No Black man had ever played the Masters before. But Lee Elder had just won the PGA Tour event in Pensacola, Fla., earning automatic qualification for the Masters. Augusta National’s Clifford Roberts, the man who built the Masters into an institution, called Elder. Roberts was either a virulent racist or a man of his time, depending on the telling, but he was also extremely media-savvy, and he knew...
    Elgin Baylor, the Lakers legend who passed away Monday at 86, was more than a great player: he changed basketball forever It is true that Elgin Baylor changed basketball, though such a statement undersells the impact he had. Baylor did not introduce a new move, a variation on a pre-established style of play;  instead, he reconceptualized the sport of basketball altogether. A game that had been previously played on a horizontal plane was elevated to a vertical one. Defenses and strategies that had been effective against every previous player were no longer useful in light of the changes Baylor brought about. Baylor, who passed away on Monday at the age of 86, was a one-man revolution, combining size, speed, and agility in a way no basketball player before him ever had. When the Minneapolis Lakers selected Elgin Baylor first overall in the 1958 NBA Draft, their dynasty had collapsed. In the 1957-58 season, just four years removed from winning their fifth BAA/NBA title in six years, the Lakers had the worst record in the league going 19-53. They hoped Baylor...
    Loading the player... Chris Gaston is an NBA agent that is on the rise. His motto is family always comes first, so it only made sense for his agency to be called Family First Sports Firm. The NBA agent spoke exclusively with TheGrio to discuss his untraditional route to becoming an NBA agent, the importance of representation, and what success means to him. “I was an agent before I knew I was an agent, you know, with several of my clients”, Gaston says as he reflects on his journey. “I was always helping these guys with decisions, whether it was picking a new team, picking a college, helping to figure out a major, what class they were going to take, I was always more invested than just where we’re going to go on the basketball court.” (Credit: Society House) Prior to becoming an agent, Gaston worked in player development, founding the  Houston Preps AAU Team, and worked as the marketing associate for the Houston Rockets. It was when he was working with other companies that he realized it was...
    The 20 best found-footage horror films These 10 Stocks Are Gifts That Keep on Giving © Provided by Awful Announcing Chris Schultz during his time at TSN. One of the most prominent CFL on TSN figures has passed away. That would be Chris Schultz, who played for the University of Arizona Wildcats from 1979-82 (first as a defensive tackle, then as a left tackle on offense in his senior season, setting him up for a professional career at that position), the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys from 1983-86, and the CFL’s Toronto Argonauts from 1986-94. Schultz then went on to perhaps an even bigger impact as a broadcaster, joining TSN in 1998 and spending more than 20 years covering the CFL and NFL for them, while also playing a key role in the annual Purolator Tackle Hunger campaign in support of local food banks. Schultz also worked as a football analyst for The Fan 590 (now Sportsnet The Fan 590) and TSN 1050, including serving as the color commentator for the latter’s Argonauts’ broadcasts in 2018 and 2019. Schultz passed away Thursday...

According to the Washington Post, the “entrepreneur with Quaker roots” owned at least five slaves before the Civil War. Newly discovered reports show Hopkins held one person as property in 1840 and four people in 1850. “The fact that Mr. Hopkins had, at any time in his life, a direct connection to slavery — a crime against humanity that tragically persisted in the state of Maryland until 1864 — is a difficult revelation for us, as we know it will be for our community, at home and abroad, and most especially our Black faculty, students, staff, and alumni,” three Hopkins leaders wrote in a joint message. They added, “It calls to mind not only the darkest chapters in the history of our country and our city but also the complex history of our institutions since then, and the legacies of racism and inequity we are working together to confront.” Photo by Rob Carr/Getty Images Read More: Maryland...
    Celtics immortal Tommy Heinsohn has unfortunately passed away. The Boston Celtics have as many NBA legends to their name as any franchise in the history of sports, and one of the starts that shone brightest was Tommy Heinsohn, who touched multiple generations of fans in the state of Massachusetts. The man who bled Celtic green has unfortunately passed on in what is a tragic moment for the league. “It’s hard to imagine the Boston Celtics without Tommy Heinsohn,” a statement from the Boston Celtics said. “There isn’t a generation of Celtics fans for whom Tommy’s presence hasn’t been felt. He is the only person to be an active participant in each of the Celtics’ 17 World Championships, an extraordinary and singular legacy.” “We take this time to celebrate his life and legacy, and to share in the sorrow of his passing with his family, friends, and fans,” the statement continued. “As long as there are the Boston Celtics, Tommy’s spirit will remain alive.” Heinsohn, who spent his entire professional career with the Celtics in various capacities on and off the...
    Is LeBron James arguably the best player in the league? Well, he did just win his fourth NBA title. He also nabbed the Finals MVP title for the fourth time and brought the Lakers back from the dead. They achieved their 17th championship after a decade, and it was all under the King’s leadership. But does everyone feel this way? The Athletics’ agent survey allows NBA agents to open up freely about their views on the franchise’s, coaches, and general managers’ players. They expect complete honesty, and they attain that by providing complete anonymity to the agents. This could be controversial because it allows them to speak with no filter, and that’s exactly what happened. When asked about LeBron James in particular, an agent had some sharp accusations for the Lakers’ star. He commented on LeBron’s public persona and how he chases the legacy, instead of it creating itself. “Transcendent talent, but an over-choreographed public image and off-the-court persona. Too obviously rehearsed and planned. Not genuine. An obsession with creating a legacy instead of letting the legacy create itself,” said...
