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].

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 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 ...

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 ...
