Jerry Stackhouse says Dirk Nowitzki stole fadeaway move from him

The Tar Heels who made it in the NBA despite going undrafted

Chase Rice on New Album, Bro Country Past

It's late morning at Chase Rice's rural Tennessee home, a few minutes south of Nashville, and the area is being battered by one of those Southern storms that feels like something a sailor might weather out at sea. It's an appropriate metaphor for the 31-year-old country singer: for the past three years, Rice was treading water, trying hard not to sink. (Rolling Stone)

Stress-tested Andrew Miller returns to 'high-leverage' innings for Cleveland Indians

Andrew Miller, bullpen flip flop or no bullpen flip flop, is back to being Andrew Miller. Wednesday, with closer Cody Allen in Cleveland where his wife gave birth, Miller relieved Carlos Carrasco in the seventh. The Indians led 3-0, but the Orioles had the bases loaded with nobody out. This was one of those high-leverage innings the Indians were supposedly trying to steer Miller away from. (

Preview 2017: North Carolina Tar Heels

The Tar Heel offense that finished 13th in the nation in passing efficiency and average 32 points per game is all but starting from scratch among the skill spots. LSU transfer Brandon Harris will be in later this summer, but can he be better than he was in Baton Rouge? There are other quarterback options battling it out, but it’s going to be a fight for the gig. (College Football News)

Inside the Playbook: Hold the door, UNC basketball is on the elevator up

Earlier this week, we broke down how Roy Williams could utilize Kenny Williams and Cameron Johnson off the ball. It’s basic screen-the-screener action; and it’s a great look for UNC basketball. There’s a derivative of this play type that’s one of my favorite actions in all of basketball. That’s good, old elevator doors play. It’s a simple, but an incredibly effective set.

Vince Carter Missed Antawn Jamison Warning Him About 1998 Draft Night Trade

Antawn Jamison was selected by the Raptors at No. 4 and Vince Carter went to the Warriors at No. 5 in the 1998 NBA Draft. The two were immediately dealt for each other.

Boyhood friends De'Aaron Fox, Justin Jackson are teammates again

Aaron Fox smiled and shook his head. It was all too good to be true.

Ten picks and less than an hour later, Justin Jackson found himself headed to California as well. (Houston Chronicle)

College basketball lost star power in draft, but it is not left barren

College basketball has become a series of one-off campaigns, each season complete with its own heroes, villains and storylines. The multi-year rivalries that once dominated college hoops are becoming more and more rare (looking at you guys, Joel Berry II and Grayson Allen).

I recruit character as much as I recruit ability. And if you’ve built a team of character, they can handle moments that others cannot and they accept coaching on how to manage pressure.
