Rapper Lil B Takes to Twitter Offering to End James Harden Curse

They are the team that stopped his Phoenix Suns three times in four years in the 2000s, and were the biggest roadblock keeping his "Seven Seconds or Less" teams with Steve Nash running the point from winning a championship. If someone had predicted this before the game, you would have thought they were insane.

Fernando Alonso's A Free Agent At The End Of This F1 Season

The engine of his MCL32 let out a lot of oil before returning the soul in a thick cloud of smoke, as he began his first lap on the track.

Zabaleta set for fond send-off at City, Toure still in dark

Whereas the ball was converted, the fact it was done so via a double touch may mean that Madley was correct to overlook the encroachment of City's players.

Raptors swept by Cavs

James is 3-4 in his trips to the championship series. The series victor will face Cleveland in the Eastern Conference Finals. Serge Ibaka scored 23 points for the Raptors, and DeMar DeRozan had 22.

C'est très compliqué d'analyser un match comme ça parce qu'il y a des choses que je ne comprends pas.

"Le même résultat en ayant fait deux périodes complètes, c'est le foot, mais en ayant fait la moitié d'un match, c'est frustrant", a déclaré le coach du SMC. Read More »
