SIX-time NBA All-Star Amare Stoudemire has come under fire for saying that he would avoid a teammate if he discovered the player is gay.
The distasteful comments came just two days after the big-man won Israel’s prestigious Martin Luther King Jr. Award for his work with underprivileged children.
Stoudemire is playing for Hapoel Jerusalem in the Israeli Premier League, and was asked about a hypothetical gay teammate by Israeli website Walla Sport.
“I’m going to shower across the street, make sure my change of clothes are around the corner,” Stoudemire said, with a grin. “And I’m going to drive; take a different route to the gym.”

That’s Garrett blazing a 4.64 40-yard time, which is impressive solely based on the fact that he’s 6-4, 272 pounds. But as you saw above, he’s also faster than three of the best quarterbacks in the draft — Mitchell Trubisky, Deshaun Watson and DeShone Kizer. Which probably means little in terms of football ability, but certainly reinforces Garrett’s freakish athleticism. And, of course, it definitely clarifies where to place your bet should these four ever face off in a footrace.

During McDermott¡¯s tenure as defensive coordinator of the Panthers, eight of the their 10 defensive selections in the first three rounds of the draft were players in the front seven. In fact, the only two defensive backs selected in the first three rounds came last year, when the team was already set at the linebacker and defensive line positions.
Limited Womens Kristaps Porzingis Jersey The Bills already have limited cap space, so using the tag on a cornerback seems against McDermott¡¯s nature. I could be totally wrong on this, but based on everything we¡¯ve seen from McDermott to this point, I would guess Gilmore will be playing for a new team next season. If true, rumors that the corner is looking for top-five money all but guarantee Gilmore will leave Buffalo.
Alshon Jeffery, Chicago Bears wide receiver
Jeffery¡¯s durability concerns and late-season suspension make it hard to believe the Bears tag the receiver for a second consecutive year. Jeffery has no direct ties to general manager Ryan Pace or head coach John Fox, and the Bears¡¯ supporting cast essentially rendered him useless by stepping up throughout the season both when he was on the field and when he wasn¡¯t.
Taggart left USF for Oregon after the season, replacing Mark Helfrich. Strong replaced Taggart at USF after his own departure from Texas.
USF brings back nine defensive starters and seven on offense, per Steele. The Bulls have a weak schedule, with the hardest road game looking like it¡¯ll come against UCF. That bodes well for Strong, but he¡¯s still got to figure the defense out.
This was a putrid unit last year, and it¡¯s hard to be confident that returning so much of it intact will necessarily be a positive for this team. If there is a positive, it¡¯s that the more disruptive players are amongst the returning starters. Mike linebacker Auggie Sanchez led the team in tackles (92) and sacks (six). Tackle Bruce Hector also had six sacks a year ago, and cornerback Deatrich Nichols led the team in both pass break-ups (seven) and interceptions (four).

Cam Newton was involved in a car accident in Charlotte on Tuesday afternoon. He was loaded onto a stretcher and into an ambulance after the wreck. Newton was taken to the hospital at 12:50 p.m. ET.
The extent of Newton’s injuries does not appear to be serious. A spokesman with the Carolina Panthers told reporters that Newton suffered two transverse process fractures in his lower back. The injury could be similar to what Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo suffered in November. Romo sat out one game after fracturing two transverse processes in his back in Week 8, but was able to return in Week 10 and play well.
Plum’s 30.9 points per game this season is nearly six points more than the next best, and she hasn’t scored fewer than 21 in a game all season.
The 5’8 guard can score with a mixture of moves off the dribble, from the three-point arc, and can rack up points from the foul line. She’s incredibly efficient too, shooting 53 percent from the field, and she is the league’s 13th-best three-point shooter at 44 percent. She also shoots 89 percent from the line.
Plum dishes five assists per game to 2.6 turnovers, which given her high usage is impressive.
She’ll have at least a few more games to add to her record between the upcoming Pac-12 tournament and then the NCAA tournament. She may catch the women’s single-season scoring record by just 84 points, and if her team can make a run in March, the all-time NCAA career scoring record set by Pete Maravich, as well. She needs 270 points to surpass him.
CBS currently projects Plum as the No. 2 overall pick in April’s WNBA draft.
The Houston Texans are doing what they can to keep the AFC South close, but the Indianapolis Colts keep winning and the division is getting out of reach. The Texans are 7-6, much better than they were a year ago when they had the worst record in the league. But Indianapolis is 9-4 and in firm control of the AFC South. The Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars are non-factors.
The Jaguars have a new head of football operations in Tom Coughlin and Coughlin didn¡¯t wait for the start of the league year to start making moves in hopes of improving the team¡¯s fortunes in 2017.
Womens D.J. Humphries Jersey Coughlin spoke to the Dolphins about a pair of trades this week that would send tight end Julius Thomas to Miami with left tackle Branden Albert making the move to Jacksonville. The acquisition of Albert is something that Coughlin believes will help address one of the biggest needs for the team.
That would be improvement from quarterback Blake Bortles. During a Friday press conference, Coughlin said that there¡¯s plenty for Bortles (and everyone else on the team) to improve in their own games, but said that any big jump will require better work on the offensive line.
Kids Will Lutz Jersey
¡°I think to improve the quarterback we have to improve the protection,¡± Coughlin said.
Coughlin also said that he doesn¡¯t think the team is helping Bortles ¡°at all¡± if they can¡¯t run the ball and noted that the team needs more than they got from the T.J. Yeldon/Chris Ivory backfield combo last year. He said there have been discussions about adding a fullback to the offensive mix, something that fit with his general theme of building a tougher Jaguars team in his first season back in Jacksonville.
When Engram is offset at the line, be it via motion or otherwise, he can hold his own as a pass blocker. If nothing else, that aforementioned athleticism allows him to get in front of rushers, and he does fine when he locks on. Ole Miss even used him as a lead blocker at times on run plays, motioning him into the backfield in that H-back mode.
The Minnesota Timberwolves have reached out to the Knicks recently to discuss potential trades for New York point guard Derrick Rose, sources told ESPN.
Rose, a free agent this summer, played for seven seasons in Chicago, including five under current Timberwolves and ex-Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau.
Authentic Kids Mike Santorelli Jersey
It is unclear what Minnesota would offer in a potential trade for Rose. Sources say the Timberwolves are motivated to trade veteran point guard Ricky Rubio, as team president and coach Thibodeau sees rookie Kris Dunn as the point guard of the future for Minnesota.
The Timberwolves, sources say, are among several teams to reach out to the Knicks asking about potential trades for Rose.
Art Monk Jersey Knicks point guard Derrick Rose played for seven seasons under current Timberwolves and ex-Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau.
Media took in the practice on Tuesday, saying that Stamkos did skating and shooting drills with Tampa Bay assistant coach Brad Lauer. The captain also participated in one-timer drills, another positive sign that his health is coming back to him.
The Lightning donâ€™t want to push Stamkos, but his addition to the lineup once healed would be a great boost for Tampa Bay. Currently, the Lightning are sitting six points out of the Wild Card as the seventh Atlantic Division team.
Itâ€™s been a rough year for Tampa Bay, who are 26-24-8 on the season and have missed Stamkosâ€™ offensive production these last few months, as theyâ€™ve moved out of playoff contention.
Naoyuki Oi of Japan had a memorable weekend at the World Pool Masters. He advanced to the quarterfinals after defeating Cheng Yu Hsuan, 8-6, on Saturday, but it was what happened after the match that turned him into a highlight. Oi doesn¡¯t speak much English, so while interviewer Tony Wrighton asked him elaborate questions about the match, Oi couldn¡¯t reciprocate his answers with the same level of vocabulary.

Instead, Oi made the best of his English skills by saying what he knows and being theatrical about it.
Wrighton: ¡°We thought you¡¯d won it, a couple of racks before you did win it.¡±

Why it worked
This was one of the most interesting trade-deadline deals, given that St. Louis, now retired and likely on his way to the Hall of Fame, would agree to go only to the Rangers after telling the Lightning he wanted to be traded. And given those limitations, Tampa general manager Steve Yzerman did yeoman’s work getting as much value as he did for St. Louis.
Although you can quibble with the long-term contract to which the Lightning signed Callahan after the trade, they went to the Stanley Cup finals in 2015 and the Eastern Conference finals last spring after that blockbuster deal. As for the Rangers, St. Louis provided an important presence in the locker room as they advanced to their first Stanley Cup finals since 1994. St. Louis led the way with eight goals and 15 points in spite of the death of his mother early in the playoffs. St. Louis was especially important during the Rangers’ second-round series against the Pittsburgh Penguins in which they overcame a 3-1 series deficit. This was a good deal for both sides.
Even though he plays in an age when it’s not unusual for players to change positions, he made no secret of the fact that moving away from that spot on the field — and not having a say in it — was difficult to accept.
“It’s more difficult because I feel I can still play it,” he said. “I don’t feel like I’m at the end of my career. You know, people like to say, ‘Torii Hunter moved to right.’ Uh, also, Torii Hunter was 35 years old when he moved to right. So at the same time, I’m 30, and I feel like I can still play it.”
After he’d taken the time to process the decision, McCutchen said he came to accept that he couldn’t be selfish if the move was going to improve his team. So two weeks ago, he tweeted a photo of former Pirates right-field legend Roberto Clemente — just to signal that maybe moving to right, for this franchise, wasn’t so bad after all.
“Once I got over the fact that I had to move,” McCutchen said, “the more I started to look at it and get some positivity out of it. And that’s one way to look at it. I’m playing at a position and a spot of a guy that you idolize: Clemente. He set the standard for someone that I would love to be like, even half that guy. So it’s an honor to be out there playing that position.”
Short of something happening to Carlos Martinez, Tuesday’s news was about as lousy for a Cardinals fan on day one of spring workouts as you could imagine. Reyes was one important adjustment — pitch efficiency — from being one of the team’s most bankable commodities in preventing runs, the area where the team broke down in 2016. He struck out 52 batters in 46 major league innings last season. He also walked 23. He wasn’t a finished product.
Now, Cardinals fans might have to confine those fantasies to two years down the road and, even with advances in medicine and physical therapy, major surgery still involves an element of mystery.

Try to work out a deal with Ezekiel Ansah. He already is getting a massive raise this year as his salary jumps from $5.9 million to $12.7 million, but after playing out his fifth-year option in 2017, Ansah will be an unrestricted free agent.
There are a few reasons to sign Ansah right now. One is that the Lions have more leverage as Ansah remains further away from free agency. The franchise tag for defensive ends in 2018 will probably come in around $18.3 million, and if the Lions wanted to franchise Ansah again in 2019, they would have to pay $22 million. That’s $53 million over the next three years.
It seems like a lot, but keep in mind that Olivier Vernon, a less productive pass-rusher, just got $53.3 million over the first three years of his new deal from the Giants when he hit unrestricted free agency. With inflation and superior performance, Ansah would top $55 million and even approach $60 million over the first three years of his new contract if he was a free agent tomorrow.
That responsibility continued when Ryan took the job as Buffalo Bills coach. In one season, Lynn moved up from running backs coach to offensive coordinator to interim head coach when the Bills decided to part ways with Ryan.
One of the key things Lynn said he learned from Ryan was how to develop a solid, working relationship with players.
Authentic Mens Matt Dumba Jersey
â€œHis players loved him,â€ Lynn said. â€œWe didnâ€™t always have success, but they played hard. Did we always put them in the right position? Maybe not, but they always played hard.â€
He grew up a fan of the team, has an admirer in Jerry Jones and could join the pantheon of players who win a Super Bowl in Dallas. If the Cowboys were interested, that possibility might be enough to get Peterson to accept a secondary role. Making this happen, though, would require quite a few gymnastics.
