NFL fans the world over have been given cause for optimism, with it said that the condition of St. Louis Rams wide receiver Stedman Bailey is improving. Bailey was shot in the head twice last week - he’s been in a Florida hospital since - but apparently he is slowly on the up and up following surgery. Rams coach Jeff Fisher has confirmed that things are getting better, though Bailey still remains in intensive care so the issues are obviously not yet over. Across to the NBA, Kevin Durant has reacted angrily to the mainstream media, accusing them of treating Kobe Bryant poorly given his form this year. Durant admitted he had idolized Bryant as a youngster, and said he didn’t like the way the Lakers legend had been portrayed of late.
