Tom Brady, Peyton Manning trash talk: A look at the shots fired by NFL stars during golf match

Tom Brady and Peyton Manning teed off in “The Match: Champions for Charity” with Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson on Sunday despite rainy conditions. And it didn’t take long for the longtime NFL rivals to begin trading trash talk; it began on the practice tee, before the match even began.

Manning first took a jab at the six-time Super Bowl champion. When asked who would have been his caddie (if they were allowed) during the competition against against Brady, the former Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos quarterback didn’t pull any punches.

“It’s hard to get to him,” Manning said on the TNT broadcast as Brady waved. “Do you bring Eli (Manning)? Could do that. Do you bring Nick Foles? Maybe. I was thinking maybe (Bill) Belichick. Have Bill Belichick caddy for me — and just to see how that

MLB 2020 season update: Where things stand with owners set to make new economic proposal to players

Major League Baseball and the MLB Players Association (MLBPA) are currently in negotiations concerning a return-to-play plan for the 2020 season. MLB was supposed to hold its Opening Day on March 26, but the spread of COVID-19 forced the league to suspend operations in the middle of spring training. Now the league and the Players Association are trying to come to an agreement for a shortened season, a process that began in early May.

That condensed campaign would likely start in July, have an expanded playoff format and feature a long list of safety protocols for both MLB players and team personnel. Here are some notable components of the proposal approved by team owners and sent to the players union:

N.Y. governor: Pro teams can return to facilities

12:46 PM ET

Associated Press

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said teams in his state can return to their facilities for training after a pause of more than two months because of the coronavirus pandemic.

“Starting today, all the New York professional sports leagues will be able to begin training camps,” the Democratic governor said during a news conference Sunday.

The New York City area was one of the hardest-hit parts of the U.S., but COVID-19 deaths and new infections in the state have been trending downward.

Major League Baseball, the NBA and the NHL are discussing the resumption of their seasons with their players’ unions.

“I believe that sports that can come back without having people in the stadium, without having people in the arena — do it! Do it!” Cuomo said. “Work out the economics, if you can. We want you up. We want people

Fantasy Football Rankings 2020: Sleepers from top-rated simulation that nailed Derrick Henry's huge season

Investing in an up-and-coming offense is a key part of any 2020 Fantasy football strategy. In 2018, those who jumped on the Rams or Chiefs saw major dividends. The Chiefs were potent again in 2019 and were joined by the Ravens, but choosing the wrong team, like the Browns in 2019, can spell disaster for your Fantasy football picks.

While players from the Ravens and Chiefs will appear at the top of the 2020 Fantasy football rankings once again, teams like the Cardinals and Broncos could be a prime source of 2020 Fantasy football sleepers. Before going on the clock this season, be sure to see the latest Fantasy football rankings 2020 and cheat sheets from the team at SportsLine, given the success they’ve had in calling sleepers like Titans running back Derrick Henry

ONE-ON-ONE: Last week, NBC Sports’ Tom Haberstroh dropped a fascinating article about how close Hakeem Olajuwon and Shaquille O’Neal came to playing a game of one-on-one on pay-per-view television all the way back in 1995, in what could have been a watershed moment for the Association. Unfortunately, it fell through at the last second, but it got us to thinking…

If a similar concept were brought up today, what one-on-one showdowns would we most want to see? So we came up with the seven most interesting matchups featuring modern NBA stars we could think of – six undercard style one-on-one games and the seventh, the main event. Let’s get right to it.

How a potential amnesty clause could play out

By | May 24, 2020

With the NBA at risk of losing regular-season games, the Force Majeure continues to loom in the background. The league and players agreed to extend the CBA termination window by two months. Both sides are expected to negotiate many things to help adjust into the new environment such as revenue split, and salary cap and luxury tax amounts for next season.

While this rare window for negotiation is open, both sides could also try to negotiate other things that aren’t essential. One such idea is an amnesty clause, suggested by Bobby Marks of ESPN, which would allow teams to waive any player currently in a long-term contract and completely eliminate their cap hits of team payroll. This has happened in 2005 and 2011, after the previous two lockouts.

There is no indication that this is something owners are seriously pursuing,

What ever happened to that Orlando Magic team that bounced the Chicago Bulls in 1995?

Before Shaq and Kobe, there was Shaquille O’Neal and Penny Hardaway.

And boy, were they something to see.

Shaquille O’Neal is regarded as one of the best big men in NBA history, if not the best. He finished his career a 4-time NBA champion, 3-time NBA Finals MVP, 8-time All-NBA First Team selection, 15-time All-Star and 3-time All-Star MVP. He once won the NBA MVP, which many would agree is one of the great travesties in league history.

He was, by all accounts, the most dominant player in NBA history.

But what many tend to forget is before he won three straight titles alongside the late Kobe Bryant in Los Angeles, and before he won his fourth ring next to Dwyane Wade in Miami, Shaq was contending for league titles as a member of the Orlando Magic, the franchise that selected him with the No. 1 pick in the 1992
