Fortune magazine crowns Theo Epstein ‘world’s greatest leader’

Theo Epstein is the world’s greatest leader.

So said Fortune magazine, which published its annual list on Thursday morning.
Limited Kids Phillip Gaines Jersey
The Chicago Cubs’ president of baseball operations finished in the top spot, ahead of Alibaba founder Jack Ma. Pope Francis at No. 3, Melinda Gates at No. 4 and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos rounded out the top five.

Theo Epstein might have earned a place on the Mount Rushmore of baseball executives. How about, someday, the actual Mount Rushmore? On Election Day, our panel discusses Theo’s third act.

The Washington Redskins have released Scot McCloughan from the organization, effective immediately, Allen said in a statement Thursday. We wish him success in his future endeavors. The team will have no further comment on his departure.

The organization remains confident in our personnel department as we execute our free agency plans as well as prepare for the upcoming NFL Draft.

Mens Claudio Reyna Jersey McCloughan, 46, had two years remaining on his four-year contract.

The Washington Post first reported Wednesday that McCloughan and the Redskins were headed for an inevitable split as rumors swirled about the whereabouts of the team’s foremost talent evaluator. The report said McCloughan’s relationship with Allen had soured from ongoing friction with Allen over personnel decisions.

The odd circumstances surrounding McCloughan’s whereabouts followed comments made by former Redskins tight end Chris Cooley, who speculated on a D.C. radio show last month McCloughan isn’t allowed to speak to reporters due to a relapse with alcoholism.

The issue led to McCloughan’s dismissal as 49ers general manager in 2010 and as a senior personnel executive with the Seahawks in 2014, and, according to the Post, also factored into his firing from the Redskins.

Shaq was joined by a ghost of his past during TNT is broadcast of Clippers vs. Knicks on Monday night.

Brent Barry was extremely excited to be wearing a Kazaam lapel pin as a subtle reminder of that time Shaq actually played a genie in one of the worst-rated movies of all time on Rotten Tomatoes.

Limited Womens Bryce Petty Jersey The best part isn’t that Barry rocked the pin. It is that there is a company that makes bizarre lapel pins like this. Patti Lapel is making some really neat stuff, and here are some of the best sports-related ones it offers:

I hate the New England Patriots, and no matter who they play I Would like them to lose, Comey said. At the same time, I’m rooting against the Patriots and hoping their opponent beats them, because there are only two teams on the field.

Comey, in his metaphor for Russia is alleged interference in the election, explained the nation is hatred for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton was so strong that the Russians backed the Republican nominee, who happened to be Trump.

Trump, coincidentally, never misses an opportunity to tout his friendships with Patriots owner Robert Kraft, coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady.

Limited Kids Sherrick McManis Jersey Later, Comey clarified his Patriots comment, stating New England represent(s) sustained excellence, and as a Giants fan that drives me crazy.

Leave it to the FBI director to compare controversial American politics to football.

Shaquille O’Neal joins Kyrie Irving in thinking the world is flat

There has never been a more inviting time in the NBA to be a flat Earth conspiracist. A month after Kyrie Irving stirred everyone up by declaring that the Earth is flat, Shaquille O’Neal did the same thing on the latest episode of The Big Podcast With Shaq.

The topic came up when O’Neal was asked about Irving’s comments by his cohosts, who told him several times the the world was, in fact, round, even as O’Neal disagreed. Here’s what O’Neal said.

Maybe they don’t really believe the Earth is flat — who knows. There are more scientifically accurate ways to get across the “don’t trust everything you’re told” motto, though, if that’s all they’re trying to do here.

Shamet had just hit a clutch three-pointer 43 seconds earlier to keep his team in the game, but Kentucky had his number on the perimeter from then on out. Freshman lottery pick-to-be De’Aaron Fox ran off screens and never gave him an inch of space.

A trade seemed unlikely because who else would want Osweiler after watching his film from 2016? Turns out the Browns did! And they might have been the perfect landing spot for him.

So, listen, I drive from coast to coast, and this shit is flat to me. I’m just saying, I drive from Florida to California all the time, and it’s flat to me. I do not go up and down at a 360-degree angle, and all that stuff about gravity. Have you looked outside Atlanta lately and seen all these buildings? You mean to tell me that China is under us? China is under us? It’s not. The world is flat.”15

Trevon Bluiett destroyed Maryland and makes Xavier a dangerous Cinderella

Womens Dashon Goldson Jersey The Xavier Musketeers¡¯ junior wing is one of the most efficient scorers in the country, and he¡¯s been a key contributor on NCAA tournament teams for three years running. But what he did to Maryland on Thursday night was special even by his lofty standard.
Elite Youth Michael Bennett Jersey
Maryland led at halftime, 36-35. Bluiett had been kept more than in check, scoring three points on 1-of-8 shooting. But then a switch flipped. Bluiett was possessed after halftime. He shot 6-of-7 from the field in the second half, finishing the day with 21 points on 7-of-15 shooting.

Xavier won, 76-65. The Musketeers will play FSU in the Round of 32 on Saturday, with a trip to the Sweet Sixteen on the line. Because of Bluiett, they¡¯ve got a real shot.

It¡¯s been nearly two years since Pierre-Paul¡¯s notorious fireworks accident and corresponding finger amputation, but the defensive end has battled his way back to pre-injury form. With seven sacks, three forced fumbles, and eight pass deflections in only 12 games last season, it¡¯s safe to say the 28-year-old still ¡°has it,¡± so to speak. Retaining Pierre-Paul would maintain continuity on one of the NFL¡¯s most dominant defensive lines.

With a healthy Pierre-Paul, the 2016 Giants improved from 30th to 14th in team sacks. More impressively, New York¡¯s scoring D improved from 30th to second in the entire league over the course of just one season. The Giants did this despite playing in one of the NFL¡¯s strongest divisions in the 2016 season, in which Dallas and Washington seemed to get involved in shootouts on a near-weekly basis. The Giants, of course, handed the Cowboys two of their three regular-season losses this past year.

Bringing JPP back is huge for the G-men as the team looks to make a serious playoff push in 2017. The team is heavily invested along its defensive line with Pierre-Paul joining Olivier Vernon as the two defensive ends at the top of the NFL in guaranteed money after the former was given $40 million guaranteed Friday.

Tre Mason released by Rams

Running back Tre Mason, who was drafted in the third round in the 2014 NFL draft by the then-St. Louis Rams, was released today by the Los Angeles Rams, according to ESPN’s Alden Gonzalez.

Mason did not see the field during the 2016 season stemming from legal issues, and did not show up for training camp. He was reported “missing” by TMZ on Aug. 1, but was eventually found unhurt. The most recent incident involved Mason recklessly driving an ATV in Florida.

“If I didn’t get concussions, I’d probably keep playing,” Cameron told ESPN’s Pat McManamon. “It’s one of those things. I can’t risk my mental health in the future. I don’t have any symptoms now. I’m perfectly fine. But they can’t tell me with 100 percent certainty that if I keep playing and I get more concussions, that I’m going to be OK.”

The 2016 season was Cameron’s second year in Miami. He played in all 16 games last year for the first time in his career, catching 35 passes for 386 yards and three touchdowns. He spent his previous four seasons in Cleveland, where he caught 130 passes for 10 scores.

It’s not a surprise that Cameron is retiring early, given the heightened awareness around concussions and brain trauma. The 2011 fourth-round pick becomes the latest player to retire while he’s still in the prime of his career. Over the last two offseasons. Calvin Johnson, Marshawn Lynch, Patrick Willis, rookie linebacker Chris Borland, and several other stars have walked away in their 20’s and 30’s.

In three games, Nowitzki averages 33 points and 16 rebounds on 53 percent shooting. He is coming off his first All-Star appearance that year, too, and falls victim to a prank from Cuban and Nash.

“We told him to have a backpack and a toothbrush and everything, because it was an All-Star tradition to road trip somewhere,” Cuban says.

Nowitzki carries it with him for an entire day before he realized.1
