    As rookies enter the final turn of the NBA season, their progress typically is accompanied by bated breath as fans await their crash into an invisible phenomenon: the rookie wall. It’s an understandable side effect of a major step-up in competition. Rookies enter their first professional season accustomed to the shorter NCAA season. Their opponents are bigger, stronger, smarter, faster. After months of playing three or four games a week, the grind of the season wears down the optimism and excitement fueling young players through their first year in the league. Yet despite all these hurdles, Chicago Bulls players and coaches aren’t worried about the rookie wall when it comes to Ayo Dosunmu. “Sometimes people view competition as a threat, and sometimes people view competition as an opportunity to grow,” coach Billy Donovan said. “That’s the way he views it. He’s going to learn something and it’s going to make him better. He leans into situations.” Donovan saw players struggle in their rookie years through both sides of the transition, first as a college coach and now in the NBA....

    Mick Schumacher questioned whether his team-mate Nikita Mazepin was trying to 'kill us' in the closing metres of Sunday's Azerbaijan Grand Prix. Schumacher, the son of seven-time world champion Michael, moved into Mazepin's slipstream as they approached speeds of 200mph on the start-finish straight in Baku. But in defending 13th place, Russian Mazepin suddenly jinked to the right in a move to prevent his Haas team-mate from getting by and squeezing him against the concrete wall.

    As the Garden opened its doors to fans for the first time this season Tuesday, a handful of patrons donned spanking-new Immanuel Quickley Knicks jerseys. In the Knicks’ “second home opener,” however, the electric rookie combo guard was a disappointment. Quickley looked hesitant against the Warriors, and he finished 1-of-5 from the field for three points, one turnover and one assist. Sensing Quickley didn’t have it, coach Tom Thibodeau held the rookie to just 13 minutes in the loss. Thursday’s game versus the visiting Kings marks the season’s 33rd game, getting to the point of a complete college schedule. That mark is often where the proverbial rookie wall hits. And Quickley has already discussed the wall with his veteran teammates. “I was talking with Alec Burks about it,’’ Quickley said on a Zoom call Wednesday. “We got like three college seasons in one essentially in a whole NBA. It’s kind of crazy. It feels like just yesterday we were at training camp, but now we’re so far along but have so much more to go. My body feels good though....
    Getty John Wall #2 of the Washington Wizards talks with James Harden #13 of the Houston Rockets. The Golden State Warriors had the second overall selection in the 2020 NBA Draft several weeks ago. Using it, the team decided to draft former Memphis Tigers center, James Wiseman. Wiseman only appeared in a few NCAA games, three to be exact, due to an NCAA violation. However, those three games proved enough to NBA teams that he remained at the top of draft boards as he averaged 19.7 points, 10.7 rebounds, and 3 blocks per game. Adding a player of Wiseman’s caliber to the Warriors will only help as the team solidifies their interior defense and begins to build for their future post their current big three of two-time MVP Steph Curry, former Defensive Player of the Year Draymond Green, and All-Star Klay Thompson. Yet in order for Wiseman to contribute, he has to get on the floor with them. The rookie only just began practicing with the team this past week after being held out due to him and...
    Giants’ HC Joe Judge is finally hitting the rookie wall; what has he learned? By: Alexander Wilson December 15, 2020 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe first half of the season saw rookie head coach Joe Judge for the New York Giants make strides with his team. Despite starting the campaign 1-7, the Giants were in a majority of games and simply couldn’t finish. A lack of playmakers and poor coaching in some facets hurt their chances, but Judge seemed to have everything under control, even when the team was losing. The Giants ended a four-game win streak against the Arizona Cardinals this past weekend, being trounced in every category. From time of possession to special teams, the Giants were simply outcoached and outmatched, something that Judge indicated after the contest. Some might argue that Judge has finally hit the rookie wall in his first year as a head coach, watching his special teams unit flounder the past few weeks, despite that unit being his specialty. Of course, there was the decision to start quarterback Daniel...
    The NBA Draft has established a hierarchy among the rookie class but pick order only means so much. Who is actually in the best position to succeed next year? By virtue of going No. 1, Anthony Edwards will start next season with a level of pressure and attention that no other rookie will have. But that doesn’t always translate to recognition. In the last two decades, the No. 1 pick as one the Rookie of the Year just seven times. If history is our guide then, it’s more likely that this season’s Rookie of the Year will be someone other than Edwards. Anthony had an absolutely miserable season at North Carolina but there are still things he does well and those things won’t take long to manifest in the NBA. If he’s healthy, he has value as a spot-up shooter and secondary creator on a team that was short on both last season. He’s probably not going to take the league by storm but averaging double-digit scoring with a decent 3-point percentage and a few assists per game is certainly...
    MLB Rookie outfielder Jo Adell accidentally knocked the ball over the outfield wall on Sunday, giving the opposing team a 'home run' during the Los Angeles Angels' matchup against the Texas Rangers. Nick Solak hit the ball hard in the bottom of the fifth inning deep into right field and Adell began backpedaling and seemed to have a beat on it. The ball, however, ended up bouncing off his glove and over the wall, costing the Angels a run. Solak was initially awarded a home run but that was then changed to a four base error on Adell after official scorer Larry Bump consulted with the Elias Sports Bureau. IN DC, CITY OF GRIDLOCK, TARP STYMIES NATIONALS GROUND CREW Los Angeles ultimately lost the game 7-3 and remain in last-place in the AL West division. The blooper was reminiscent of an infamous incident in 1993 when a ball bounced off the head of slugger Jose Canseco, then playing for the Rangers, and over the wall for a home run. This news comes as the remainder of the MLB season still remains in doubt due to coronavirus...
