Becky Hammon won the Spurs a late challenge after convincing Gregg Popovich to go for it

Pop didn’t want to challenge a late foul call on Jimmy Butler until Hammon convinced him to go for it.

The San Antonio Spurs were fighting off a comeback attempt from the Miami Heat in the final minutes of Sunday’s game when the NBA’s new coaching challenge rule came into play. As Jimmy Butler drove to the basket for the Heat and went for a layup, the refs called for a continuation and goaltending on the Spurs, which would have given Miami a three-point play opportunity and the...

Richard Sherman won an NFC title, then immediately got into it with Darrelle Revis online

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

Darrelle Revis criticized Richard Sherman. As is tradition, the 49ers CB responded in kind.

Richard Sherman and Darrelle Revis are two of the best cornerbacks to take the field this millennium. They also don’t like each other very much.

Revis called out the 49ers cornerback after he got beat on a Davante Adams deep route late in a 37-20 NFC title game win over the Packers. That led a triumphant Sherman to respond after he’d marched back to the...

This explanation was too good.

The San Francisco 49ers have a chance to win their fourth Super Bowl in franchise history, thanks to their 37-20 win over the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship. Afterwards, 49ers tight end George Kittle, who led the team in receiving yards in the regular season, met the media donning a shirt with a shirtless Jimmy Garoppolo on it:

Jimmy Garoppolo attempted just eight passes in the NFC Championship Game. But you shouldn’t overlook him, and neither should the Chiefs.

The 49ers ran all over the Packers in the NFC Championship Game, amassing 285 yards on the ground. That says a lot about Raheem Mostert, the guy who did most of the running, as well as all of the players blocking for him. But what does it say about quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, who attempted just eight passes in...

The Super Bowl matchup is set, and Geoff Schwartz identifies one reason to believe in each team.

Wow, folks. I’m emotional. This is awesome. For those who don’t know, my brother, Mitchell Schwartz, is the starting right tackle for the Kansas City Chiefs. And he’s now in the Super Bowl. How cool. I’m so happy for him and for his team.

The Chiefs face off against a very complete San Francisco 49ers team. They are a beast. This is an exciting...

When Royce O’Neale’s new Jazz contract will matter

Photo by Chris Graythen/Getty Images

Utah committed to O’Neale with big dollars to keep him out of free agency this summer. The real pressure point is a couple of years down the road.

The Utah Jazz gave defensive role player Royce O’Neale a four-year, $36 million extension. O’Neale is a third-year wing who signed with the Jazz out of Summer League in 2017 after going undrafted out of Baylor and playing two seasons in Europe. He’s a good shooter who doesn’t shoot much. His...

Aww yeah, Super Bowl 54 is gonna be all red

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL’s had plenty of blue vs. blue Super Bowls. Red vs. red is a first.

For the first time ever, two teams with red as a primary color will meet in Super Bowl 54. That’s fitting, considering both teams are red-hot as double-digit winners in all of their playoff games.

The Kansas City Chiefs wear red and white with a little bit of yellow. The San Francisco 49ers wear red and white with a little more gold than the Chiefs’ yellow.

Of course, it won’t...
