A large portion of the Minnesota fanbase believe it's Thibs fault that Butler wants to leave, and not the rumored-drama surrounding Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins . Ben would be the point-forward, Fultz would play the off-ball combo guard role, Butler would be the three-and-D wing, and Embiid would do what he does. Read More »

Pedro injury ‘probably not serious’ - Sarri

But Chelsea failed to kill off their Greek opponents and almost paid the price. Sarri was happy with how his team controlled proceedings but expressed his frustration at not killing the match. I think that he can spend less energy than now at 50 or 60 metres to the opposite goal. Alvaro Morata returned to the line up looking to recapture his form, but he squandered a chance to double Chelsea's lead in the 38th minute when he headed wide from close range. Read More »

Dan Bailey Signs With Vikings After Rejecting Four Desperate Teams

It's too early". It is quite a blunt response, but the fact of the matter is that Carlson missed all three of his opportunities that could have helped the Vikings grab the win over the Packers. Johnson started and played against the Vikings during the third preseason game for both teams, recording a tackle and a quarterback hit.
