Video of John Wall's explosive reverse dunk shows Achilles injury recovery going well

Category : NBA , Promoted , Wizards

It’s still unclear exactly when Wizards point guard John Wall will return to the floor, as the team has been quiet about his Achilles injury recovery, but it does appear that he’ll be ready to play early next season, if not the first game, even.
Wall hasn’t been practicing with the team yet, but he’s clearly been working on his leaping — the main function of the Achilles, and he’s already getting up there again.
A recent video of him throwing down a sick reverse dunk during shootaround shows that.

Great to see Wall getting his hops back.


Carmelo Anthony heaps praise on Zion Williamson with player comparison

Category : NBA , Promoted , Trailblazers

Zion Williamson has only played in a handful of NBA games, but he’s already making his presence felt in his rookie season.
The No. 1 overall pick in this past year’s draft has looked a bit out of shape, yet he’s also been explosive — at times appearing unguardable on the block, even squaring off against some of the league’s best defenders. His outside shot is developing — ahead of schedule — as well, and that’s going to make him extremely dangerous.
The league’s veterans are already taking note, with Carmelo Anthony the most recent to heap praise on Zion.

"I don't really think he's comparable to anybody that I've seen. Somebody as powerful as that who jumps like that. And you can tell he's getting better, his feel for the game is getting better." Carmelo Anthony on #Zion

He’s not wrong. We really have never seen a Zion in the league — until now, that is. There’s no proper comp for his unique skill set.


Antonio Brown apologizes to Ben Roethlisberger, begins redemption tour

Category : NFL , Promoted , Steelers

Antonio Brown has apparently figured out that he’s going to have to make amends — with both NFL players and the league — if he’s going to suit up and play football again, so he finally took a step in that direction on Wednesday.
The AB redemption tour officially began this week, with Brown finally coming out in an attempt to bury the hatchet with his former quarterback. Brown and Steelers signal-caller Ben Roethlisberger had been beefing since he left the team, exchanging plenty of barbs, but Wednesday saw Brown apologize to the veteran quarterback.

It’s a step in the right direction for sure. We’ll see what comes next.

Browns receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is living the life all of us dream right now.
He’s living in one of the more up-and-coming cities in Cleveland during the season — and in Los Angeles the rest of the year — while being known as one of the top receivers in the league. Not only that, he’s paid like it, currently playing on a $90 million contract.
OBJ is also crushing life off the field, dating Instagram model Lolo Wood. The two had a blast hitting up the Oscars over the weekend, partying it up in the limo, as you can see below.

It’s good to be OBJ.
