Published Add your comment

US Sports fans, come in, make yourself at home.

Presumably you’ve landed on this tiny space of internet with the expectation of finding a round-up on your beloved sports. If that’s the case then you’ve come to exactly the right place.

Below we’ve detailed the biggest stories of the day, including a bit of fluff to help you digest. Read on, watch the video above and leave thoughts and opinions in the box provided when possible.

Kidd-Gilchrist surgery

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is set to undergo surgery on his shoulder and may miss the entirety of the upcoming NBA season, according to Yahoo Sports sources.

The small forward damaged his right shoulder during the Charlotte Hornets’ preseason victory over the Orlando Magic, with an MRI scan yesterday revealing the full extent of the problem.

As a result the 22-year-old, who only signed a contract extension worth $52m in September, is believed to be out for at least the next six months, making a return to the lineup this year unlikely.

Durant a liar?

Meanwhile, ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith has refuted Kevin Durant’s claim that he is a liar, warning him not to make an enemy out of him.

Durant hit out at claims made by Smith that suggested he was considering a move to the Los Angeles Lakers, telling the public that the ESPN man had to have made it up. Smith, though, said it was Durant who was lying.

NFL controversy

Moving on, and in the NFL the league has admitted officials made a hash of the ending to the Seattle Seahawks v Detroit Lions match last night.

The Lions were down 13-10 with just two minutes to play when Seahawks linebacker K.J Wright knocked the ball out of the back of the end zone.

NFL vice president of officiating Dean Blandino has since admitted it might have been illegal and they’re to review all the angles.

Dolphins desire

Lastly, Dan Campbell - new Miami Dolphin’s interim head coach - has claimed he wants the team to play with aggression moving forward.

The Dolphin’s fired Joe Philbin after a fourth defeat of the season, against the New York Jets, and instated Campbell as his temporary replacement. It appears he has plans to get the franchise back on track.
