In the wake of two mass shootings in less than a day, outspoken Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr jumped to his Twitter account to go on the attack against the Second Amendment and gun violence. As news about the shootings emerged, Kerr mostly took to retweeting others. But in some of those re-tweets, the NBA coach added his own comments. For instance, on Saturday he noted that we have a “white supremacist problem” in the U.S.A. This pretty much sums it up. https://t.co/J823pOZuDD — Steve Kerr (@SteveKerr) August 4, 2019 He also uncorked a pair of tweets attacking Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell: How does Mitch McConnell sleep at night? https://t.co/ZJSh1CxJz8 — Steve Kerr (@SteveKerr) August 4, 2019 But apparently not 'sickening' enough to actually do anything about it, huh Mitch? https://t.co/DbHSxgKUIi — Steve Kerr (@SteveKerr) August 5, 2019 But Kerr also retweeted a lot of anti-gun tweets without adding his own … [Read more...] about Warriors’ Steve Kerr After Mass Shootings: ‘How Does Mitch McConnell Sleep at Night?’

BOSTON (CBS) — With the NFL moving full speed ahead toward a 17-game regular season, there’s now some clarity on what that schedule will look like for NFL teams. For the Patriots, it appears as though it will lead to a home game against the Dallas Cowboys.

In short, it will pit the AFC East vs. the NFC East in 2021, with teams playing the corresponding team in the other division based on which place the team finished in 2020.

Jamal Murray only deserved partial blame for the broken play that cost the Nuggets, at minimum, an overtime session against the Washington Wizards on Thursday night. Down 112-110 with six seconds remaining, Nikola Jokic tapped a defensive rebound into the eager hands of Murray. Of the first five players to cross halfcourt, four were Nuggets. The lone Wizard, Bradley Beal, pulled up near the 3-point line and committed to Murray, leaving both Michael Porter Jr. and Facu Campazzo unattended. Murray said he expected Porter to cut to the hoop for what would’ve been an uncontested layup sending the game into overtime. But when he didn’t, and instead sunk to the far corner despite no one being in the paint, that removed Denver’s easiest path to a bucket. “There should’ve definitely been a cut to the rim,” Porter said. “At the beginning, we all just were thinking, get behind the 3-point line. Let’s win it and go home.” Though Porter conceded that, with the benefit of hindsight, he’d … [Read more...] about “The layup was there”: Inside the Nuggets’ late-game disaster vs. the Wizards
Kiz: As the Nuggets scuffle toward the NBA all-star break with a record barely above .500, point guard Jamal Murray tells us he’s not stressing. But is it OK if I’m a little jittery? Yes, Denver has dealt with more than its share of injuries, making it difficult to establish chemistry. But is there something more amiss with the Nuggets than bad luck? And shouldn’t a team that regards itself as a championship contender now be worried about being relegated to the crap shoot of a 7-10 play-in tourney? Singer: They should be anxious sitting in seventh place, though with nearly 40 games to go, you’ll get absolutely no one to admit that. What’s become apparent to me, is given the compressed nature of the schedule, each team is simply trying to keep its head above water. Any reflection or self-assessment is going to have to wait until the break. The schedule is just too insane, with maybe one practice allotted per month. What would bother me the most if I was coach Michael Malone would … [Read more...] about Kiszla vs. Singer: Are the Nuggets in danger of falling into the NBA’s play-in tournament?
As the NBA announces its plans to investigate allegations made Thursday by G-league player and NBA veteran Jeremy Lin that he was called an anti-Asian slur “on the court,” Lin has not publicly named the player or the game where the alleged incident happened. Lin used his Facebook page, which has 3.5 million followers, to post a long statement on anti-Asian racism in America. In his post, Lin spoke for all Asian-Americans, saying, “We are tired of Asian American kids growing up and being asked where they’re REALLY from, of having our eyes mocked, of being objectified as exotic or being told we’re inherently unattractive.” Taiwanese-American Lin, who is a forward for the Santa Cruz Warriors, also referred to alleged Asian bias in sports in his post, saying, “I want better for the next generation of Asian American athletes than to have to work so hard to just be ‘deceptively athletic,'” and added, “Being a 9 year NBA veteran doesn’t protect me from being called ‘coronavirus’ on … [Read more...] about NBA’s Jeremy Lin Refuses to Name Player Who Allegedly Called Him ‘Coronavirus’
