A former GM of the Philadelphia 76’ers says they used to have to hide Allen Iverson’s jersey to prevent him from trying to play when injured. “He would come to the locker room looking for his jersey, we’d lock it somewhere so he couldn’t get it…. One time, in New York, he found his jersey but didn’t have any shoes. He was trying to send the ball boy to the Foot Locker around the corner. He said ‘just give me a pair of their Reeboks. I can play in those.’ Then he pointed to an attendant, ‘what size are you, just give me those shoes,’ because he wanted to play so bad.”
Of the 53 games played by the Cleveland Cavaliers this season, Kevin Love has played in 10. We’re pretty sure no one had to hide his uniform from him during the other 43 games.

UFC 264 will be headlined by the highly anticipated trilogy between Dustin Poirier (27-6 MMA, 19-5 UFC) and Conor McGregor (22-5 MMA, 10-3 UFC). McGregor scored a first-round knockout of Poirier at UFC 178 in 2014, but Poirier exacted his revenge almost six years later when he knocked out McGregor this past January at UFC 257.
Another great moment from Aaron Rodgers as guest host of Jeopardy last night as he delivered this answer,
“In the 1960s these Midwesterners earned 5 NFL championship trophies.”
