    THE first British derby ever played at a World Cup finals — and quite possibly the final match for Gareth Bale as an elite footballer. England versus Wales adds a serious dollop of local spice to this global jamboree. 2Gareth Bale is Wales' star man with the key to beat EnglandCredit: Getty We’ve had Welsh actor Michael Sheen geeing up the boyos prattling on about the valleys and “crimson thunder” and the land of our fathers. And we’ve had Gareth Southgate suggesting that he will use a video of Wales players celebrating riotously in their team room, after England were humiliated by Iceland at Euro 2016, as motivation for the clash in Doha. So it seems the perfect time for an Englishman to ask: “Gareth Bale, five-time Champions League winner — was he ever really all that?” No other British footballer has five European Cup winner’s medals and no other British footballer has ever spent nine years on the books of Real Madrid, the most famous club on Earth.

Ronaldo took part in Portugal's World Cup opener with Ghana and made history by becoming the first player ever to score in five consecutive World Cup competitions.

    All good things must come to an end, and for Serena Williams the end - or what seems like the end - of one of the greatest athletic careers in history came calling in Flushing Meadows on Friday night. The 40-year-old Williams bowed out in the third-round of the US Open, losing to Australian Ajla Tomljanovic 5-7, 7-6, 1-6. As she stood on the court at Arthur Ashe Stadium for what may be the final time, social media became a memorial book of sorts on a career that inspired so many from all walks of life.

'You're literally the greatest on and off the court,' Serena's friend Tiger Woods wrote. 'Thank you for inspiring all of us to pursue our dreams. I love you little sis!!!!!!' NFL superstar...

First, the Bulls will have the NBA Draft on Thursday night and then free agency will get underway a week later on June 30.

    Getty New Lakers head coach Darvin Ham Darvin Ham agreed to a four-year deal to become the next coach of the Los Angeles Lakers, a move both LeBron James and former Finals MVP Chauncey Billups loved. The Lakers fired Frank Vogel on April 11 after going 33-49 in 2021-22. Since Ham won a championship as a player with the Detroit Pistons and as an assistant coach with the Milwaukee Bucks, many pundits believe the Lakers will be better in 2022-23. However, 11-time All-Star and Hall of Famer Charles Barkley doesn’t think so. “Well, I’m glad Darvin got an opportunity cuz he’s paid his dues,” Barkley told Dan Patrick on the Dan Patrick Show. “He’s a nice guy. We’ll have to see what kind of coach he is, but listen, if one of your coaches is close to the same age as your players, your team not gonna be any good anyway.

    Getty Marcus Smart, Boston Celtics The Boston Celtics have two games remaining of their regular season, which means we’re getting closer to learning if Marcus Smart has done enough to earn himself Defensive Player of the Year honors. A lot has been said about Smart’s candidacy for the individual defensive award this year, from both sides. Some people believe it’s been far too long since a guard was credited for their excellent defense, while others are steadfast in their belief that centers are the most impactful defenders on a team. Yet, according to Andre Drummond of the Brooklyn Nets, no player deserved the award more than Marcus Smart, with the multi-time rebounding champion stating the veteran guard is “a menace on and off the ball.” @smart_MS3 for DPOTY!

    Getty The Lakers are considering walking away from Russell Westbrook. It is not a surprise that the Los Angeles Lakers are expected to revisit the trade market for Russell Westbrook, but one NBA insider reported the team is considering even more drastic measures if they are unable to find a suitable deal. According to Bleacher Report’s Jake Fischer, the Lakers will consider stretching Westbrook’s contract this offseason, which would make him a free agent. Fischer described releasing Westbrook as the “most realistic option” for the Lakers. “Los Angeles’ most realistic option may ultimately be stretching Westbrook’s $47 million player option for the 2022-23 season,” Fischer explained on March 2. “The Lakers have already shown a willingness to stretch Luol Deng’s contract, which finally slips off Los Angeles’ books this year, although that came under Mitch Kupchak’s stewardship. Stretching Westbrook, according to the strategist, would drop the Lakers to merely $2.5 million above the salary cap, which would allow them to sign a rotation piece to the non-taxpayer mid-level, and another player to the bi-annual exception.” ALL the...
    Photo by Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images Every NBA team has that one guy who became a fan favorite for bruising physicality and a willingness to do whatever it took to protect their teammates. In order to put together a comprehensive list of every NBA team’s greatest enforcer of all time, the question must first be asked: What exactly is an enforcer? An NBA enforcer is a player whose impact on the game is felt in a very profound way by his mere presence on the court. The alpha-male who takes charge by any means necessary, usually by way of force, rage and intimidation. Extra gritty and a whole bunch of trash talking. Ready to fight and probably looking for one. The guys you never want to see checking in if you’re playing against them, and the same guys you always want on your side. They are loved by their’s and loathed by everybody else. They are a game-changing nuisance, relentless in their pursuit.That’s an NBA enforcer. And this is every NBA team’s greatest enforcer of all time.Detroit Pistons — Bill LaimbeerRegarded...

    GARY NEVILLE finally waded in on the GOAT debate and picked Cristiano Ronaldo. But Jamie Carragher fired back insisting Lionel Messi is the greatest footballer of all time. 3Cristiano Ronaldo marked his return to Old Trafford with two goals against NewcastleCredit: Reuters Neville played with the Portuguese superstar for Ronaldo's six years at Manchester United between 2003 and 2009. And he set out his stall in Team Cristiano on Monday Night Football. Nev said: "I've always ignored the Ronaldo and Messi question, it's a bit of a fantasy and both need to be enjoyed. "I was asked this morning by a gentleman who was driving me in: If you could pick any player in history to come off the bench and win you a game, who would it be?

    Getty Former Los Angeles Lakers big man Mychal Thompson. Prior to LeBron James and Anthony Davis joining forces, the Los Angeles Lakers were linked to a lot of star players. One guy who would’ve made a lot of sense on the squad is Golden State Warriors star Klay Thompson. His father, Mychal Thompson, won two championships with the franchise and he grew up in Los Angeles. While he’s had chances to go play for his dad’s former team, the pull to stay with the Warriors has been too strong. Any chances of Thompson coming back home seem pretty much dead at this point in his career. However, Mychal Thompson made it clear that he tried to get his son to be a Laker when he was younger. See?

    The Fortnite community has been able to witness an array of talented players. Fortnite pros range from the ages of 16 to even 3o-year-olds like Nickmercs. Additionally, they have all had their moments which have segregated them from the crowd. As a result, it becomes very difficult to crown ‘the best Fortnite player of all time’. Across the two chapters and sixteen seasons of Fortnite, we have seen iconic moments like the Ninja and Tfue rivalry, Bugha winning the inaugural Fortnite World Cup, and Clix destroying top players in 1v1 wagers. Recently, Orange, a Fortnite pro for the e-sports organization 9LIVES took to Twitter to ask the age-old question “who was the best player to ever touch the game?” Fans managed to come up with a variety of answers and reasons to support their choices.

    All hail King Tom Brady! The superstar quarter-back's record-breaking 7th Super Bowl victory yesterday means he's now won it more times than any NFL franchise, let alone any other player. And the fact he's done it again at the age of 43, after leaving the team that he'd been with for 20 glorious years, makes it all the more extraordinary and admirable. So perhaps it's little wonder that many are now calling Brady the 'Greatest Sportsman of All Time'. Indeed, social media has been buzzing with such hyperbolic claims from the moment Brady was awarded his fifth Super Bowl MVP award last night, breaking his own record of four. Don't get me wrong; he's a magnificent athlete with an extraordinary work ethic and will-to-win that places him in the very highest echelons of sporting achievement. But the G.O.A.T? No chance.

He also went on record with some extremely serious praise. Draymond Green appeared on ESPN’s First Take Wednesday morning, and when asked a question about LeBron James’ More Than a Vote initiative and political activism, he slipped in an interesting description of his on-court exploits: "Hes arguably the greatest player of all-time. Look at his resume, its flawless." – Draymond talking about LeBron on First Take while wearing a Klutch shirt! pic.twitter.com/f2QwRM6hoQ — Ballislife.com (@Ballislife) June 23, 2020 Draymond Green really said LeBron James is the GOAT?His relative “GOAT-ness” has been argued over for years so the first part of that take isn’t hot at all.

    Former NFL player Jack Brewer told "The Story" Friday that the celebration of Juneteenth, which marks the anniversary of the day in 1865 when slaves were ordered freed in Texas, "is a joyous day." "All my life we celebrated Juneteenth," Brewer, a Texas native, told host Ed Henry. "Usually, when I talk to African-Americans across the country, a lot of people don’t even understand, or didn’t before now understand, the significance of this day. "You know, my great-grandfather was a sharecropper," Brewer added. "He was the first black man, actually, to come into my town [of] Grapevine, Texas ... so this day always reminds me of that, reminds me of my history. So, for a long time I've always hoped and dreamed that this would actually be a national holiday, so I'm pushing for that." Brewer went on to say that Juneteenth is a time for Americans to reflect "not just ... on the horrible institution of slavery, but reflect on how far we've come. I mean, this is truly a day we should all be celebrating ... I'm just excited to see that the nation is finally getting around this holiday."...
