IFWT_Rice

Ray Rice has been out of the NFL for a couple seasons now and at least for the moment, the odds are against him playing again but he isn’t letting that way of thinking stop him. He continues to work out and looks to be in very good shape and he wants teams to know he can care less about the money aspect of playing football. He is willing to donate his entire salary for next season to domestic violence programs, if a team will just take a chance on him.

The Michigan Wolverines home opener on September 3rd against Hawaii just got a bit more interesting. The game itself will likely not be too competitive, as Michigan is expected to run through their schedule this year until their meeting with Ohio State in November but it was announced yesterday that Michael Jordan will be captaining the Wolverines that day and that alone is worth watching.


(Photos) NBA: JJ Redick Is Tired Of People Complaining About KD Going To The Warriors

While many fans are still upset about Kevin Durant’s decision to leave the Thunder and sign with the already loaded Warriors, players themselves aren’t upset at all. Sure they might be mad that it will take a miracle to beat a team like that in the playoffs but they all support Durant’s decision to do as he pleased as a free agent. The entire point of free agency is to give a player some power since for the most part the power always lays in the hands of the owner. JJ Redick of the Clippers is one person who should be mad, considering his team will have to get through the Warriors if they want to reach an NBA finals but he is actually tired of the criticism KD has been receiving and broke down some facts on twitter.

A few months ago, Shaq had posted on his Instagram that he needed help with a longer mattress. He posted the video showing his legs hanging off the Tempur-Pedic Ergo bed that was on display and for some random reason he added a chicken to the video. Either way, the people at Tempur-Pedic heard his cry for help and took care of him with his very own “Shaq size” mattress.

Mike Conley may not have the same name recognition as NBA stars like Carmelo Anthony or Lebron James but after signing his $153 million dollar contract with the Grizzlies, he certainly has the same money as guys like that and he knows with money comes responsibility. Conley admitted to not even being able to celebrate or feel happy for his new deal because of all the things going on in the world, especially here at home, with the shooting deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile at the hands of police and the shooting deaths of five police officers in Dallas. He knows it’s time for change and he used the opportunity of his press conference this week to speak on it and explain how he was inspired by Melo, Lebron, Chris Paul and Dwyane Wade after their speech at the ESPYS.


NBA: Golden State Warriors Asking For Insane Amount Of Money To Advertise On Their Jersey

Starting with the 2017-18 season, NBA teams will see an advertising patch added to their jersey’s for the first time ever. This is nothing new in the sports world, as soccer teams around the world and even the WNBA all have logo’s and patches from companies who paid for that space. It is new in the NBA though and so far we’ve only heard details of how two teams are going about it and they couldn’t be more different.


NBA: Dwight Howard Opens Up About Why He Didn’t Have A Good Relationship With James Harden

IFWT_Howard

Dwight Howard and James Harden’s relationship started off promising when Howard decided to sign with Houston after leaving the Lakers but it didn’t take long for reality to set in for both players. The expectations of a championship never materialized and with the exception of one successful season which saw the Rockets lose to the Warriors in the western conference finals two season ago, there really was nothing else good to speak of. The relationship between both guys was clearly strained after a while, which was something Howard spoke on during his appearance on the “Mike & Mike” show.
