Golf’s biggest questions: Rickie Fowler’s major chances, Rory McIlroy’s return

Christmas is two weeks away, and the golf offseason has finally arrived … right in the middle of the 2017-18 PGA Tour season. I don’t really understand it, but I’m going to enjoy it because golf cranks up again just a few weeks after Christmas with the two-tournament Hawaii swing, and then we’re off on our nine-month journey. There is, of course, all kinds of intrigue going into the 2018 calendar year. There already was before Tiger Woods started swinging his driver like he was Tony Finau down in the Bahamas two weeks ago, and now that intrigue has been

OKC’s George: Pacers’ success brings ‘closure’

3:01 PM ET INDIANAPOLIS — As he returns to Indianapolis to play in the arena he called home for his first seven NBA seasons, Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George said Wednesday that he has regrets about how things ended with the Pacers. But he also has closure. “I think both sides — myself and the front office — would definitely like to have handled things better,” George said. “I for sure will take ownership on that. But I have no regrets on the outcome.” George declined to say specifically what those regrets are. “I know what I would’ve changed,”

‘Don’t let him shoot it!’ Inside Harden’s terrifying trick

8:58 AM ET HOUSTON — “By yourself! By yourself!” Cleveland Cavaliers coach Ty Lue hollers from the bench after a ball screen set at the top of the arc prompts power forward Jeff Green to switch onto James Harden, the Houston Rockets superstar who considers seeing a bigger defender alone in space “probably one of the best feelings in the world.” The game got close for the Houston Rockets, but the greatness of James Harden and Chris Paul held up in Portland. Ryan Anderson was one point shy of matching his season high, while Chris Paul nearly had a triple-double

The downside of modernizing the Rules of Golf

For the better part of the last decade, officials at the USGA and R&A have offered a simple refrain to anyone professing difficulty understanding the nuances of the Rules of Golf. Be patient, they insisted. Relief is on the way. This promise, at last, is close to being fulfilled. In March, the governing bodies jointly revealed their first pass at a “modernized” Rules book that tackled several of the game’s most complex, confusing and confounding capstones. Having solicited feedback from the golf community, officials from the two groups are currently in the throes of crafting the final text (sources say

LeBron praises Lonzo, sees first-year parallels

3:02 AM ET CLEVELAND — LeBron James sat in front of his locker Tuesday night following the Cavaliers‘ 123-114 win over the Atlanta Hawks, a game in which he tied his career high in assists with 17, but he wasn’t ready to talk about his team’s 15th victory in its past 16 games. A television stationed across the locker room from James showed the Los Angeles Lakers battling the New York Knicks in overtime. James was going to watch the finish to the Knicks’ 113-109 win over the Cavs’ next opponent — the Lakers and their lightning-rod rookie, Lonzo Ball

Leading up to the game, coach Mike Tomlin said that the Steelers would not be on the field for the anthem after President Trump criticized NFL players who have knelt during the pre-game ceremony.

The protests began in 2016 with Colin Kaepernick, then of the San Francisco 49ers, and spread to dozens of other players on different teams. In response to Trump's comments, numerous players knelt, locked arms, or remained seated during the national anthem at games over the weekend.

Immediately after Villanueva was spotted alone Sunday, his jersey became the top seller on NFLshop.com, conservatives hailed him as a “hero,” and supporters took to Twitter to thank him.

But a day later, Villanueva expressed embarrassment about the situation, saying that it was actually an accident that he ended up standing by himself during the national anthem.

During a news conference Monday, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said that at a meeting the night before the game against the Chicago Bears, some players suggested the team should kneel or sit during the anthem, while others wanted to stand.

In an effort to remain unified, the players decided they would all remain in the tunnel leading to the field, Roethlisberger said.

However, Villanueva said that in the moments before the game he ended up separated from his teammates as a group of Bears fans and people carrying a flag exited the field through the same tunnel.

When Villanueva realized he was alone, he considered walking back to his teammates.

“At that moment, you know, it was the decision of, do you walk out of the national anthem and join your teammates?” he said. “I know that would look extremely bad. Or as a team, do you start moving halfway through the national anthem?”

“We butchered our plan to sort of have a response for the national anthem and respect everyone’s opinion,” he added.

Roethlisberger also expressed regret Monday, saying he wished “we would have continued down” to Villanueva.

Responding to the ensuing controversy Monday, Villanueva said that “this national anthem ordeal has been out of control,” adding that “I feel embarrassed to a degree.”

Villanueva said that both his team and other players in the NFL are “extremely patriotic” and that the team wasn't trying to make a political statement.

“I've made Coach [Mike] Tomlin look bad, and that is my fault and that is my fault only, I've made my teammates look bad and that is my fault and my fault only, and I made the Steelers look bad and that is my fault and my fault only,” he said.

“So unwilling I've made a mistake,” the player continued. “Unfortunately, I threw them under the bus, unintentionally.”

When asked about Trump's comments, Villanueva responded that “I'll stick to football” and said he had no comment. He also said that he wasn't going to tell anyone how they should respond to the national anthem.

“People who are taking a knee are not saying anything negative about the military, they’re not saying anything negative about the flag,” he said. “They’re just trying to protest the fact that there’s some injustices in America. And for people to stand up for the national anthem it doesn’t mean that they don’t believe in these racial injustices, they’re just trying to do the right thing.”
