Roger Federer Wins 8th Wimbledon Championship

Watched the first set and it was obvious Cilic had no chance. Federer looked like he was playing a tuneup against a college freshman.

Players like Judge may make the Yankees relevant again and give the likes of ESPN and others something non-ex-Yankee to write about.

Edmonton Oilers sign Connor McDavid to eight-year contract worth $12.5-million a year

Crosby-Malkin or Kane-Toews

Your comment on cap space is intriguing.

Both Oilers have a long way to go to match what Crosby and Toews bring at both ends of the rink. And the Blackhawks organization, Penguins to a lesser extent, have done an incredible job of filling the roster with quality pieces around the core.

Oilers lucked into McDavid and aside from simply picking the easy choice every year have been a complete failure of plugging holes in the roster. And they've ruined/wasted a bunch of very talented young players along the way. It's more the Oilers organization that needs to step up now.

Crowder, Bradley, and Smart are all quality pieces but essentially bring the same game to a team. And if they stick around will hamper Tatum's development.

If only Ainge had an idea Hayward was on his way he could have moved a few of those pieces and maybe Jackson shows for his workout and is a Celtic today.

Agree with your take on Utah. One of maybe 3 NBA young teams on the rise that will be devastated by Hayward's departure and wish he would have stayed. Good young player but I think he brought more value to Utah than he will the Celtics.

McDavid will generate a couple hundred million per year for the Oilers and the NHL.

He probably could have played out his RFA years and signed for a pile more in a big US market but I admire his decision. Even if I have to watch the Oilers win a Cup before my Jets.

Ainge has done a good job of stockpiling draft picks and Stevens appears to have been able to make the college to pro jump successfully. Good on Ainge for not wasting assets needlessly. What he needs to do now is tone down a bit and let the team sell itself as a good situation for free agents and future draft picks.

The LA Clippers trade PG Chris Paul to the Houston Rockets

Basketball is slowly turning into the EPL

I'm finding the off-season about twice as interesting as the first three round of this year's playoffs

The NBA has been boring and completely predictable ever since LeBron James did his decision douche-baggery and joined 2 other stars in Miami in a realization they had no chance of winning otherwise. It was great to see Golden State win 2 years ago with a home grown team and Durant certainly is a class act deserving of a championship but his move to the Warriors is bad for the league.

I guess all we have to wait for now is to see who LeBron convinces to join the Cavs in making a decision if the NBA is worth watching at all next season.
