    The Las Vegas Aces collected a historic number of trophies and honors during the 2022 WNBA season, culminating with the first title in franchise history. The Las Vegas Aces capped off their season with a 78-71 victory over the Connecticut Sun in Game 4 of the WNBA Finals, securing the league’s biggest prize. But the WNBA Championship Trophy is far from the only bit of hardware they secured this season. The Aces also defeated the Chicago Sky in July to secure the 2022 WNBA Commissioner’s Cup, “an in-season competition that featured 61 games throughout the regular season, with players competing for a prize pool of $500,000 and an additional $165,000 for charitable and civic organizations.” And then there were the individual awards. A’ja Wilson won both the regular season MVP and Defensive Player of the Year Awards, becoming the fifth player in league history to win both in the same season. It was a foregone conclusion that one of the Aces would be WNBA Finals MVP after winning the series, but the honor went to Chelsea Gray who averaged 18.3...

    A smirking Democratic official has appeared in court charged with the murder of a Las Vegas journalist who exposed his affair. Clark County Public Administrator Robert Telles, 45, is accused of killing Jeff German, a reporter with the Las Vegas Review-Journal, outside his home. German, 69, was stabbed to death on September 3 after publishing a series of articles exposing married Telles' affair and mismanagements of public office.  Telles appeared in front of a judge today smirking as he was told his next appearance would be September 20th. He wore a prison issued navy uniform, remaining in handcuffs while smiling and nodding during the short hearing. The official did not speak during the hearing, and appeared to have white bandages up his arms.

    Disgraced Las Vegas politician Robert Telles was seen smiling in court on Tuesday as prosecutors officially charged him with “lying in wait” outside Jeff German’s home before he stabbed the investigative journalist at least seven times. Telles, 45, has been charged with open murder with the use of a deadly weapon for the Sept. 2 killing of German outside of his Las Vegas home. In a criminal complaint filed in Clark County Monday, prosecutors alleged that Telles was “willful, deliberate and premeditated” as he targeted the 69-year-old. German had written several articles about Telles’ alleged misconduct as county public administrator, a post for which he had recently lost a bid for re-election. The public official, who is still technically being paid for his role before his tenure is up in December, was seen standing at the doorway of a Clark County courtroom for his arraignment on Tuesday, smiling with bandages wrapped around his forearms.

Starting center Andre James had to leave SoFi Stadium in an ambulance and was taken to a local hospital, per Vincent Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal. @Raiders center Andre James is being taken by ambulance to a local hospital.

    John Cahill never saw it coming. In 2018, after serving 12 years as Clark County public administrator, a low-key elected position responsible for securing the estates of recently deceased Las Vegans, Cahill anointed a fellow Democrat as his would-be successor. His choice? A 45-year-old Mississippi-born HVAC technician-turned-probate lawyer by the name of Robert Telles. Cahill told The Daily Beast that at the time, nobody had flagged any potential issues with Telles. And ultimately, his endorsement of the married father-of-three who had been named Nevada Legal Service’s 2014 “Pro Bono Attorney of the Year” proved fruitful when Telles won the Democratic nomination, and then the general election. “Any contact I had [with Telles] was a positive one,” Cahill said. “His classmates at the law school, a couple of them were attorneys who said he’d do a great job.” Once Telles took over, Cahill did start to catch wind of trouble—like whispers from employees that Telles was “pretty hostile if he thinks people are pushing back on him.” Then, Las Vegas Review-Journal investigative journalist Jeff German’s articles started coming out in May...

    A county official who was in a hazmat suit when he was questioned by reporters on Wednesday over the death of a Las Vegas journalist has been arrested. Clark County Public Administrator Robert Telles, a Democrat, was arrested on Wednesday for the murder of Las Vegas Review-Journal investigative journalist Jeff German. German, a 12-year veteran of the Review-Journal, was fatally stabbed and body was discovered on Saturday outside his home. German had investigated Telles’ office and reported in May that it was “mired in turmoil and internal dissention over the past two years, with allegations of emotional stress, bullying and favoritism leading to secret videotaping of the boss and a co-worker outside the office.” In June, Telles, 45, lost his primary. Telles was wearing a hazmat suit on Wednesday as he went into the garage of his home, where police carried out a search warrant. He declined to answer questions from reporters.

However, questions and skepticism soon emerged despite his selection at 17th overall in the 2021 NFL Draft.In a simple tweet, Ian Rapoport embarrassed the Las Vegas Raiders and Alex LeatherwoodBut here’s the real story: Alex Leatherwood is still on an NFL...
