    Getty New York Knicks star Julius Randle defends Mo Bamba during a bout with the Orlando Magic. While New York Knicks fans are currently in a tizzy over the team’s point guard position — and, specifically, whether Leon Rose can get Donovan Mitchell or Jalen Brunson in there to rejuvenate it —  there are other issues to contend with this offseason. Mitchell Robinson’s future in the Big Apple is a huge one, as the club weighs whether to dole out a big-time contract extension by June 30 or, instead, allow the big man to hit unrestricted free agency. For his part, SNY‘s Ian Begley expects the latter to happen. The 24-year-old impressed last season, putting up 8.5 points, 8.6 rebounds and 1.8 blocks per contest while making 76.1% of his shot attempts. However, his offensive game continues to be limited to rim rolling, and doling out large sums to a player with such a specialized skill set may not be the move to make. There’s also something to be said about the way in which a Robinson-Julius Randle...
    Getty Deandre Ayton #22 of the Phoenix Suns. The Chicago Bulls could be one of any number of teams in pursuit of disgruntled Phoenix Suns center, Deandre Ayton. But should they join the fray for the first overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft? What would it even take? Most of the discourse surrounding the Bulls’ offseason has involved Zach LaVine, an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his career. There has also been some discussion of prospects with the NBA Draft Combine starting on May 16. But the majority of suggestions have come in the form of trade suggestions, again, often involving LaVine. This puts Ayton, a restricted free agent this summer, in a uniquely complicated situation.Proposal and WarningAyton’s restricted status, in addition to the Bulls’ financial situation, means the only way Chicago could land him would be through a sign-and-trade. That has been a common theme among the proposals for them this offseason. It is also how they landed Ball and DeMar DeRozan last offseason. Most scenarios have involved LaVine with the Bulls taking...
    Getty Ben Simmons could be on a new team to the start the year. The Phoenix Suns failed to get out of the second round of the playoffs, and center DeAndre Ayton’s future with the team appears murky, so the Brooklyn Nets might feel the time is right for them to swoop in and make a big trade. A point of weakness for the Nets that was exposed in the playoffs especially was their lack of size. Nic Claxton is a good option for the team going forward, but he’s still very raw, and Brooklyn even had to turn to Blake Griffin for help. If the Nets want to truly compete for a championship, they’ll need to find a way to not get bullied in the paint, and adding somebody like Ayton would help out a ton. Ayton won’t be easy to acquire, but ESPN’s Zach Lowe suggests the Nets dangle Ben Simmons in a potential trade for him. As unlikely as it sounds, it might be enough to work.Ben Simmons Traded? GettyDeAndre Ayton, Suns This would...
    America’s lost her mojo, and a broad spectrum of voices from the center-right to the Trumpy right have banded together to win it back. In a signed statement, published at National Review, these conservatives summon Americans to return to a “consensus view” that “America is a fundamentally fair society with bountiful opportunity.” “The American project… is under assault. Our history is the subject of a revisionist critique that is all-encompassing, unsparing, and very often flatly inaccurate,” the statement reads. “Our traditional heroes are under threat of being run out of the national pantheon. Our institutions, from elections to the job market to law enforcement, stand accused of perpetuating a systemic racism that is impossible to eradicate. Our educational system, from kindergarten through graduate school, is increasingly a forum for crude propagandizing…” I’ll stop there because the relentless accuracy is thoroughly depressing. The letter is signed by a diverse group of 59 conservative luminaries, ranging from former Bush administration officials (Karl Rove and former Attorney General Michael Mukasey) to former members of the Trump administration (like former Attorney General Bill Barr...
    Getty Tom Brady and Byron Leftwich could prepare the Buccaneers for the future in 2022. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers haven’t formally determined a succession plan for quarterback Tom Brady, and the Bucs may not wait until 2023. Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield remains on the training block after the team traded for Deshaun Watson in March. Bucs general manager Jason Licht didn’t shoot down the possibility of pursuing Mayfield, but nothing happened with that during the draft or the weeks following. Bucs insider Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times discussed a potential move for Mayfield on the “Rich Eisen Show” on Tuesday, May 10. Stroud confirmed the Bucs considered Mayfield during Brady’s 41-day retirement. “I have not heard Baker being one of those exploratory deals,” Stroud told Eisen. “Like when they were looking for a quarterback to replace Tom Brady, they did work on Baker, and I don’t think they dislike him as a quarterback. In fact, I know a former coach here, Todd Monken, was the offensive coordinator here, went to Cleveland one year and loved...
    SAN FRANCISCO (CBSMiami/AP) — Former boxing champ Mike Tyson will not face any criminal charges after he was caught on video punching a fellow passenger on board a JetBlue plane at San Francisco International Airport which was headed to South Florida. The San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office said it has closed the case and decided against pursuing charges based on “the circumstances surrounding the confrontation.” READ MORE: NASA Wants To Send Nudes Into Space“These include the conduct of the victim leading up to the incident, the interaction between Mr. Tyson and the victim, as well as the requests of both the victim and Mr. Tyson that no charges be filed in this case,” District Attorney Stephen Wagstaffe said in a statement. The April 20 video shows Tyson leaning over the back of his seat, repeatedly striking the unidentified man in the head, drawing blood. The video was posted by TMZ Sports, which said the incident happened as the plane was set to depart. Representatives for Tyson previously said the boxer was on a flight with “an aggressive passenger who...
    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Authorities will not file criminal charges against former heavyweight champ Mike Tyson after he was recorded on video punching a fellow first-class passenger aboard a plane at San Francisco International Airport last month, prosecutors announced Tuesday. The San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office said it has closed the case. The victim and Tyson both requested that charges not be filed, District Attorney Stephen Wagstaffe said in a statement. The video shows Tyson leaning over the back of his seat repeatedly striking the unidentified man in the head, drawing blood. The footage was first shared by TMZ, which said it was recorded on a Jet Blue plane bound for Florida. Prior to the physical altercation, the other passenger was seen on the video standing over Tyson’s seat — waving his arms and talking animatedly while the former boxer sits quietly. Attorneys for Tyson praised the district attorney’s decision in a statement on Tuesday. Copyright © 2022 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

    TEL AVIV, Israel (AP) — Israel’s raucous Independence Day celebrations will be a little quieter this year. Although fireworks are typically a mainstay at parties across the country, this year many of the glittering yet noisy displays have been cancelled over concerns by some military veterans who say the cracking and banging dredges up the horrors of battle, especially for those with post-traumatic stress disorder. “The barrage of fireworks is the same as a burst of gunfire for us,” Ehud Amiton, a former soldier with PTSD who has worked to cancel the firework displays, told Israeli Army Radio Monday. “We don’t oppose the celebrations, we oppose the noise.” Israel marks 74 years since its creation on Thursday, and festivities begin the night before. The country’s main ceremony in Jerusalem, which usually boasts a grandiose fireworks finale will instead hold a silent pyrotechnic show. The seaside metropolis of Tel Aviv, where residents climb to rooftops to watch the glittering display, has also scrapped fireworks this year. Israel’s Culture Minister Chili Tropper announced last month that he was siding with the veterans,...
    Getty Miami Heat president Pat Riley addresses the media during Jimmy Butler's 2019 introductory presser. The Miami Heat‘s path back to the NBA Finals suddenly looks clearer following reports that Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid is out indefinitely with a right orbital fracture. If they weren’t already, the Heat now look like clear favorites in their second-round series with Philly. From there, a very winnable matchup with either the Milwaukee Bucks or the Boston Celtics would be all that separates the club from a championship opportunity. Whether the team completes the mission or not, though, Pat Riley will undoubtedly seek to make roster improvements this offseason, incremental or otherwise. And, according to one rival executive, there may be a golden opportunity to make a deal with the Chicago Bulls. The target: former lottery pick and combo guard Coby White. White for Robinson?

    Censorship of the laptop believed to have belonged to Hunter Biden in the final weeks of the 2020 election doesn't warrant prosecutions, according to former Attorney General William Barr. Newsmax host Sean Spicer, who served as former President Donald Trump's first White House press secretary, pressed Barr on Thursday about whether there will be any "legal consequences" for the suppression of the story and for those who dismissed it as Russian disinformation. "Not that I can think of," Barr said after noting that politicians and the media have a propensity to tell lies. Details about Biden's business dealings and personal life have emerged in the media thanks to copies of a laptop and hard drive, but early on, in October 2020, major media outlets sought to cast doubt on its authenticity, and Big Tech companies even took steps to suppress its spread in the final weeks of the election. A group of 51 former intelligence officials signed a letter suggesting Russia was involved, which led then-candidate Joe Biden and others to dismiss the laptop as being part of a Russian...
    Getty New York Knicks guard Kemba Walker looks on prior to a game against his former club, the Charlotte Hornets. After a woeful stretch from mid-January to early March that saw the team go 3-17 with a net rating of minus-7.0, the New York Knicks displayed incredible growth down the stretch. However, Leon Rose and Co. still have a lot of work to do this offseason if they hope to make a quick return to the playoffs. First and foremost, the team needs to bring in a legit floor general to run the offense — one that isn’t Kemba Walker’s ghost or a mispositioned Alec Burks. To that end, the team has been linked to Jazz All-Star Donovan Mitchell and breakout Mav Jalen Brunson. However, getting either to NYC could prove too costly or cumbersome to pull off. In the event that they can’t reel a big fish to be their lead guard, the Knicks could look to a younger player, one with room to grow while still having an impressive baseline of point guard skills. Particularly, a...
    Pennsylvania Republican primary candidate tore into rival Mehmet Oz by claiming there is no 'miracle cure for flip-flopping' and the former television doctor mocked his opponent for not getting Donald Trump's endorsement. David McCormick's one-liner comment during Monday's GOP primary debate for U.S. Senate took aim at Dr. Oz's promotion of remedies on his long-running show The Dr. Oz Show and also knocked him for previously opposing fracking. The one-hour event Monday evening saw the five GOP candidates – Oz, McCormick, Kathy Barnette, Jeff Bartos, and Carla Sands – throwing jabs just three weeks before the primary election in the Keystone State. Oz is the candidate who earned Trump's endorsement in the race to take retiring Republican Senator Pat Toomey's seat. The former president will rally for Oz in Pittsburgh outskirt town of Greensburg on Friday, May 6. During the debate Monday evening at ABC27 studios in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania turned to fracking at one point with McCormick pointing out Oz's past opposition over the natural gas extraction method opposed by many environmentalists. 'Dishonest Dave is at it again,' Oz said...
    During Monday’s GOP primary debate for U.S. Senate, David McCormick deployed two knocks on rival Mehmet Oz in a single one-liner. Oz has long been criticized for promoting questionable remedies for various ailments as a former longtime medical personality on television. The doctor also has a history of taking liberal positions on issues such as abortion, energy, and guns, from which he must now distance himself if he is to win the nomination. Oz has landed the coveted endorsement of former President Donald Trump, much to the chagrin of many Republicans both inside and outside of Pennsylvania. At one point during the debate, McCormick dinged Oz over his past opposition to fracking. Oz took exception. “Dishonest Dave is at it again,” Oz said, using Trumpian alliteration to express disapproval. “He went groveling to President Trump with these types of allegations. President Trump saw right through him, did not endorse him, and then he endorsed me, because as he said in his announcement which he wrote himself, I know how exactly to manage our energy issues and deal with many of...
    The prospects of drafting former top prospect Kayvon Thibodeaux might be too good for the Dallas Cowboys to pass up. In Albert Breer’s MMQB column ahead of the 2022 NFL Draft, he hints that the Dallas Cowboys could potentially trade up for former Oregon star pass-rusher Kayvon Thibodeaux if he slides. “Dallas could move up — I heard at one point last week that their radar was up for [Kayvon] Thibodeaux potentially sliding,” wrote Breer. Heading into last college football season, Thibodeaux was a bona-fide lock to go inside of the top five. Now, there is a chance he might fall out of the top 10. With the Cowboys picking at No. 24, they could potentially stand pat and draft a player at a position of need, like off-ball linebacker Nakobe Dean out of Georgia. Or, the Joneses could be keeping up with the Joneses and trade up. If Thibodeaux is the apple of their eye, how high up would the Cowboys have to trade up for him?Dallas Cowboys: Could they trade up to draft Kayvon Thibodeaux on Thursday?Let’s be real. If...
    Getty The Cowboys rumors continue this offseason. There may be some fire to the smoke created by the rumors that the Dallas Cowboys are exploring trading up from No. 24 in the NFL draft. Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer reported that there is some buzz that the Cowboys are targeting Oregon pass rusher Kayvon Thibodeaux. Heading into the 2021 college football season, Thibodeaux was the favorite to be the No. 1 pick, and Dallas appears to be hoping that the defender slides on draft night. “Dallas could move up—I heard at one point last week that their radar was up for Thibodeaux potentially sliding,” Breer wrote on April 25, 2022. “But more likely would be the team sticking here, and taking either a traditional off-ball linebacker (Georgia’s Nakobe Dean?) or starting to inject some youth into their aging offensive line group. To that end, Texas A&M guard Kenyon Green is one player other teams have connected to Dallas.” ALL the latest Dallas Cowboys news straight to your inbox! Join the Heavy on Cowboys newsletter here!

    More tapes of Kevin McCarthy's private conversations with House Republicans after the January 6th insurrection have been released as controvesy continues to surround the GOP leader. In the latest batch of audio, which was played on CNN on Friday morning, McCarthy said what Trump did on the day of insurrection was 'unacceptable' and that no Republican should have to defend the then-president's actions.  'I know this is not fun. I know this is not great. I know this is very tough, but what I want to do, especially  through here is, I don't want to rush things. Want everybody to have all the information needed. I've had it with this guy. What he did is unacceptable. Nobody can defend that, and nobody should defend it,' McCarthy said on a phone call with a small group of House Republicans on January 10th, 2021. The next day, in a call with the larger GOP House Conference, McCarthy said Trump 'bears responsiblities for his words and actions' on January 6th.  He also said Trump told him that 'he does have some responsibility' for...
    According to former Republican National Committee spokesperson Tim Miller, nothing better demonstrates that even the “good Republicans” like Sen. Mike Lee (UT) engaged in hare-brained schemes to help Donald Trump steal the 2020 presidential election, than Lee’s text messages leading up to the Jan 6th insurrection. As Miller notes in his Bulwark column, there has existed a narrative that there were “good” Republicans who were not involved in plotting to keep Trump in the Oval Office no matter what voters decided, and then there were the fanatics who saw no problem with running roughshod over the Constitution. With CNN reporting that Lee and fellow Republican Rep. Chip Roy (TX) were frantically texting former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows asking for help in disrupting the certification of the vote, Miller suggested that the “insane” wing of the party is deeper than people think. With Lee and Roy’s texts demonstrating a swing from full-throated support for overturning to becoming appalled by the conspiracy theories and legal reasoning being put forth by former Trump attorney Sidney Powell, Miller wrote that the...
    Getty New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh getting pumped up ahead of an NFL game. The New York Jets have made some mini-splashes this offseason by adding some much-needed talent to the roster. However, the major splash in the deep end of the pool has eluded them so far. You can’t blame them for a lack of trying, but an ‘A’ for effort isn’t going to get the job done. Eventually, you’ll have to close the deal to reap the rewards and the glory that comes with it. Gang Green may have the opportunity to do that with a surprising player this offseason.

    Former five-star stud Emoni Bates is transferring from Memphis after one season with the Tigers. Where could the highly-touted talent head next? Emoni Bates has been touted as the next great basketball star, but his college basketball career didn’t get off to the start he wanted with Memphis. Bates played 18 games, starting 13 times. He averaged 9.7 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.3 assists while missing more than a month of action with a back injury. Now the small forward is in the transfer portal and looking for a new home. Bates, who turned 18 in January, won’t be able to head to the NBA until next year. He could always spend his next year of development playing in the G-League but the more likely outcome is for him to stay in the college ranks.5 transfer destinations that make sense for Emoni BatesMichigan State SpartansTom Izzo was one of the earliest college coaches to aggressively recruit Bates.
