Is Kyrie Irving to the Sixers a legitimate trade possibility?!. ...well, no. Probably not. The idea was floated Thursday afternoon ahead of the 2022 NBA Draft as the basketball world heated up amid multiple reports of unrest in Brooklyn. Irving and the Nets are reportedly at an impasse over his contract situation, and that reportedly has Kevin Durant unsure of his future in Brooklyn as well. It's all very dramatic and gossipy, which is extremely fun.

DJ LeMahieu’s game-tying homer sets the stage for Aaron Judge’s Yankees walk-off

DJ LeMahieu has the ultimate protection in the Yankees’ lineup, usually batting ahead of Aaron Judge.  LeMahieu’s game-tying home run in Sunday’s eighth inning set the stage for Judge’s latest accomplishment on his MVP résumé, a three-run blast to lift the Yankees to a 6-3 victory in 10 innings over the Astros in The Bronx.  LeMahieu’s seventh homer of the season came one inning after Giancarlo Stanton also had gone deep for the Yankees’ first hit in 16 innings since Friday night.  “The first little thing was Big G hitting the homer to get us our first hit.

The Nets seemingly can’t get it together.

It’s past time Yankees fans stop blaming Jose Altuve for Astros’ cheating

Reggie Jackson shared an elevator the other day with Yankees fans, one of whom was telling his buddies how much he despised Jose Altuve.  “I hate that little sawed off SOB,” the gentleman proudly told his chums.  And that’s where Mr. October, now an Astros executive, entered the convo.  “He’s my favorite player,” Jackson told the fellow, before adding one comment. “You should be quiet.”  The fellow had one question for Reggie.  “You’re Reggie Jackson, aren’t you?”  “Yes, I am.”  And so, the guy took Reggie’s advice and shut up.  Now the rest of the Yankees faithful should follow suit.  It’s enough punishment already for Altuve regarding the Astros’...

Panic grips Washington Square Park after fireworks mistaken for gunshots

The booming sound of fireworks sparked panic and fear at Washington Square Park on Sunday evening, sending parkgoers fleeing from the Manhattan green space. The startling noise could be heard by hundreds who were enjoying the Greenwich Village Park in the sweltering heat at around 8:30 p.m., according to police sources. Footage from the scene shows a massive exodus of people from the park after the blasts. Police sources confirmed that there were no shots fired. The infamous downtown park, where marijuana is sold in plain view of police, was the location of a massive pro-choice rally on Friday. One cop estimated there were 17,000 people in the crowd. Many were holding signs that said “Keep your laws off my body,” and “No uterus, no opinion,” while shouting chants like “My body, my choice.” After the protest, the crowd marched up 6th Avenue. About two dozen people were arrested for blocking traffic at 42nd where they stopped and sat on the floor in defiance of cars attempting to drive. Nearby, a protester appears to have broken a window and poured an unknown liquid on the floor at the Women’s National Republican Club on 51st street, photos show.
