The Cowboys have franchised Dez Bryant and are likely to try to sign the wide receiver to a long-term deal. Bryant has been one of the finest receivers in the game for a while now, so it's no surprise that he was equally as impossible to cover in high school:
Playing against a player of Bryant's caliber in high school must not have been easy -- but hey, at least those players got a good story out of it.
Marcellus Wiley is in the new "Sharknado" movie. So, too, is Mark Cuban.
Die-hard fan Michelle Beadle, though? She's not. And she wants to change that.
After missing a pair of free throws late in the Cavaliers' 105-103 overtime loss to the Rockets on Sunday, LeBron James posted this introspective mirror selfie to Instagram:
What was running through LeBron's mind? SportsNation sparked a #LeBronMirrorThoughts trend to answer that question. Possibilities include:I still don't understand the color of #TheDress:
Things are not good with the Denver Nuggets.
Two years removed from a 57-win season -- after which they dismissed coach George Karl and replaced him with Brian Shaw -- the Nuggets entered Sunday with a 20-38 record, meaning the playoffs are simply not happening.
Apparently the players know it. According to this nugget (sorry) from The Denver Post, a chant could be heard at one point during Denver's 104-82 loss at home Friday night to the not-exactly-a-powerhouse Utah Jazz:
"1-2-3 ... six weeks!"
... as in, six weeks until the season is over.
As The Post's Christopher Dempsey points out, this is reminiscent of a 1998 moment in which then-Los Angeles Lakers guard Nick Van Exel, joking (he says) about his team's impending Western Conference finals exit against (coincidentally) the Jazz, chanted in practice, "1-2-3 ... Cancun!" (Even more coincidentally, Van Exel the next season joined the Nuggets.)
Still, with 24 games left in a lame-duck season, it's hard to completely fault players for just wanting everything to be over.
Or is it?
