Thomas: Underdog status to keep driving C's

2:36 AM ET BOSTON — Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas knows his top-seeded team will be considered the underdog against the Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference finals, but he believes Boston will continue to use that as motivation. “They didn’t give us a chance [against the Wizards]. They didn’t give us a chance when we were down 2-0 to Chicago.

NBA coaches keep taking on Trump

Spurs coach speaks out against President Trump Gregg Popovich is only the latest NBA coach to come out against President Trump. The San Antonio Spurs coach, normally averse to answering reporters’ questions, had no trouble this weekend opening up about the president. He called Trump “embarrassing” and a danger to American institutions, and said he was behaving like a self-centered game show contestant. He is at least the third NBA coach to speak out against Trump and his administration’s policies since the election. By contrast, almost every manager in Major ...

What we know about Lonzo Ball reads like a personnel file. He’s 19. NBA talent evaluators love him, no matter what his father says or does. “Lonzo is very good,” says a scout for a team that will be picking in the lottery. “What he does better than anyone in college basketball, and probably anyone in the last 10 to 15 years, is push the ball and get it into the hands of shooters. And what makes him really special is that he’s this uniquely brilliant passer.” His coach at ...

Tories will keep pledge to cut migration to 'tens of thousands'

The Conservatives will once again promise to cut net migration to the “tens of thousands” in their election manifesto, the BBC understands. On Sunday, Home Secretary Amber Rudd refused to say whether the pledge – which was in the 2010 and 2015 Tory manifestos – would be repeated.

Will Hanley Ramirez keep crushing it without David Ortiz?

8:38 AM ET FORT MYERS, Fla. — To liven the mood before a late-night cross-country flight during a three-city slog last September, Boston Red Sox players were encouraged to wear their favorite replica jersey from any sport. Predictably, blue-and-gold Steph Curry tank tops and Tom Brady’s No. 12 were all the rage. Hanley Ramirez’s garb of choice? The gray Red Sox road jersey hanging in David Ortiz’s locker. Even with Big Papi’s shirt, Ramirez isn’t Ortiz. While Ortiz was adored by teammates and rivals alike, Ramirez forged a reputation with ...

British citizens should be allowed to keep the benefits of EU membership, according to the chief Brexit negotiator at the European Parliament. Guy Verhofstadt said allowing individuals to keep rights, such as freedom to travel and vote in European elections should be a priority. The former Belgian prime minister said Brexit had been a “tragedy” and a “disaster” for people in the UK and EU. He also warned the European Parliament had veto powers over any deal struck. Prime Minister Theresa May wants to trigger Article 50 of the Lisbon ...

We can’t see inside Fukushima Daiichi because all our robots keep dying

Tepco, the utility company tasked with overseeing cleanup and waste processing for the former Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, hit another snag this week. Last month, we reported on new findings about Reactor #2 that showed it was far more radioactive inside than previously measured. At the time, we noted that Tepco was working on a new robot that could handle up to 73 sieverts of radiation, but the measured level of 530 sieverts vastly exceeded that tolerance. Now, Tepco has admitted that repeated robot failure is hampering its plan to ...
