Former NBA star Lamar Odom announces he will play basketball in China

Lamar Odom, former NBA player and Khloe Kardashian’s ex-husband, said Thursday he was returning to basketball and will play in China.

“My heart literally warms up now I can finally share with you all that I’m returning to play Basketball. I will be playing in China! God is good!”Odom wrote.

Odom, 39, has not announced which team he will join.

Kardashian, Odom’s ex-wife, has not publicly commented on his announcement, nor has anyone else from the Kardashian family.

Kardashian filed for divorce in 2013 following months of Odom’s very public struggles with substance abuse, including a DUI arrest and stint in rehab, along with rumors of infidelity, People reported.

In October 2015, Odom was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel after a drug overdose.

He was in a coma for three days and entered rehab for substance abuse -- during which time Kardashian stayed by his side.

The couple’s tumultuous relationship came to an end in 2016.

In July 2018, Odom said he was moving to Shenzen, China, to enter a business partnership with a local management company, according to Eurohoops.

He made headlines earlier this month with an incident at a Hooter’s restaurant in Queens, New York, where an argument escalated into a gunfight, TMZ reported.

The other group fired off shots and fled the scene.

Odom later posted on social media that he was “OK” and “not involved in any way” with the shooting.

Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte suspended 14 months for IV infusion 

Ryan Lochte is suspended from swimming again after he posted a photo on social media of himself getting an intravenous infusion.

NPR reported that the May 24 post got the attention of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency. The USADA launched an investigation and found that, although Lochte did not inject himself with any banned substances, he received more than the permitted amount.

The investigation found that Lochte had more than the permitted 100 ml in a 12-hour period, leading to a 14-month suspension.

“Intravenous infusions or injections in a volume greater than 100 mL within a 12-hour period are prohibited at all times -- except for those legitimately received in the course of hospital treatment, surgical procedures, or clinical diagnostic investigations under the USADA Protocol for Olympic and Paralympic Movement Testing, the United States Olympic Committee National Anti-Doping Policies, and the Fédération Internationale de Natation Anti-Doping Rules, all of which have adopted the World Anti-Doping Code and the World Anti-Doping Agency Prohibited List,” the USDA said in a statement., adding that Lochte fully cooperated with the investigation.

USA Today reported that the suspension, which was announced Monday, is retroactive and will last until July 2019.

“A rule is a rule and I accept that there is a technical violation,” Lochte said, according to The Associated Press. “I am hopeful other athletes will learn from my mistake and be mindful of this rule, as well as others.”

The infusion included B-12 and other vitamins, according to Lochte. He said his wife and son were ill and recently visited hospitals. Lochte said he took the IV because he didn’t want to get sick.

“I’ve been swimming my whole life and I’ve been monitored by USADA for my entire competitive career,” Lochte said. “I have never taken a prohibited substance. I have never attempted to gain any advantage over my competition by putting anything illegal in my body. I would never do that.

“I should know better,” he said.

This is Lochte’s second suspension in two years. In 2016, he embellished a story about a fight at a gas station while in Rio de Janeiro for the Olympics. He was suspended for 10 months, returning to USA Swimming in August 2017. 

The swimmer still hopes to compete in the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, according to The AP

“I have goals that I want to accomplish in 2020,” Lochte said. “If anything this is going to add more fuel to my fire.”

“Our hearts go out to Jeanette and the entire Sparano family as we all mourn the loss of Tony,” Vikings Owners Mark and Zygi Wilf said in a statement. “Tony was a passionate and driven individual who cared deeply about his family, and especially enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren. Tony's presence within the Vikings organization will be deeply missed. We are only thinking of Tony’s family during this incredibly difficult time. We ask that the entire NFL and Vikings family keep the Sparanos in their thoughts.”

Sparano is survived by his wife, Jeanette;  his two sons, Tony and Andrew; his daughter, Ryan Leigh; and four grandchildren.

NFL, players union agree to halt new anthem policy for now, seek resolution

The NFL and National Football League Players Association have agreed to halt enforcement of rules regarding the new national anthem policy, after the Associated Press reported that Miami Dolphins players who protest on the field during the anthem could be suspended for up to four games.

>> Read more trending news 

“The NFL and NFLPA, through recent discussions, have been working on a resolution to the anthem issue. In order to allow this constructive dialogue to continue, we have come to a standstill agreement on the NFLPA's grievance and on the NFL's anthem policy. No new rules relating to the anthem will be issued or enforced for the next several weeks while these confidential discussions are ongoing,” the statement read.

The Dolphins said in a statement: “The NFL required each team to submit their rules regarding the anthem before their players reported to training camp. We will address this issue once the season starts. All options are still open.”

The NFL rule that was passed in May forbid players from sitting or taking a knee if they are on the field or sidelines during the national anthem, but allowed them to stay in the locker room if they wish. The new league rules were challenged this month in a grievance by the players union.

The NFLPA said earlier this month that the NFL policy, which the league imposed without consultation with the players union, is inconsistent with the collective bargaining agreement and infringes on player rights.

The Russian activist punk band Pussy Riot claimed responsibility for the suspension of play at Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, which occurred during the 52nd minute of Sunday’s match.

France was leading 2-1 when three women and a man charged onto the pitch, The Associated Press reported. The protesters were wrestled to the ground by police. Croatia defender Dejan Lovren pushed the male protester, which allowed police to subdue him, the AP reported.

The protesters were dressed in black pants and white shirts. They entered the pitch from behind the net guarded by French goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, The Independent reported. One of the women reached the center of the pitch and high-fived French forward Kylian Mbappe.

On Twitter, the group released a statement urging the Russian government to release political prisoners and to end “illegal arrests” of protesters.

France cruises past Croatia 4-2 to win World Cup

France cruised to its first World Cup title in 20 years and its second soccer crown overall, dominating Croatia 4-2 in Sunday’s championship game in Moscow.

The French, winning the Cup for the first time since 1998, scored first and then outran the Croatian squad, the smallest country to play in a World Cup final since 1950, when Uruguay defeated Brazil 2-1 in Rio de Janeiro.

France opened the scoring in the 18th minute thanks to an own goal by Croatia. On a set piece after a free kick, Frances Antoine Griezmann kicked the ball toward the goal. The ball glanced off Croatia’s Mario Mandzukic and past goalkeeper Danijel Subasic.

Croatia tied the match 10 minutes later when Ivan Perisic rocketed a left-footed shot past Hugo Lloris.

France was awarded a penalty kick when Perisic handled the ball in the box. After a video review, referee Nestor Pitana in favor of the kick.

Griezmann buried his shot past Subasic to give France a 2-1 lead, which it took into the half.

France increased its lead to 3-1 in the second half, with Paul Pogba controlling his own rebound of a blocked shot and converting a left-footed shot in the 59th minute.

Six minutes later, Kylian Mbappe became the first teenager to score in a World Cup final since Brazil’s Pele did it in 1958. That gave the French a commanding 4-1 lead.

Croatia cut the deficit to 4-2 in the 69th minute when Mandzukic sent a shot past Lloris.

It was also the 13th career Grand Slam victory for Djokovic, 31, and the first for the Serb since the 2016 French Open. Anderson, the eighth seed, lost his second Grand Slam final. He lost to Rafael Nadal in the 2017 U.S. Open title match.

Djokovic was coming off a grueling semifinal against Nadal, winning 6-4, 3-6, 7-6(9), 3-6, 10-8 in a 5-hour, 15-minute duel. It was the second-longest semifinal in Wimbledon history that began Friday and had to be resumed Saturday because of curfew rules.

The longest semifinal match was held Friday, when Anderson, 31, topped John Isner in a 7-hour, 36-minute five-set marathon.

Temperatures on Centre Court broke 100 degrees as the two finalists began play.

Celebrities in the stands included Hugh Grant, Eddie Redmayne, Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch.

Djokovic, the 12th seed, defeated Anderson in 2 hours, 15 minutes and took the first set in 29 minutes.  He improved to 6-1 against Anderson and defeated the South African for the third time at Wimbledon.
