Green donation

NBA star Draymond Green is donating $3.1million to his alma mater in order to reward them for their men’s basketball program.

According to reports, the Golden State Warriors forward has added philanthropist to his list of traits, after offering the lump sum to the Michigan State Spartans.

The Board of Trustees at the University is yet to approve the donation, but it’s assumed it will be received in earnest.

Green graduated from Michigan State in 2012, and last year won the NBA championship with the Warriors.

Metta World Peace deal

Elsewhere, Metta World Peace is closing in on a one-year deal with the Los Angeles Lakers, with the franchise apparently keen to bolster their roster.

The latest reports are that the Lakers are ready to re-sign the player who spent four seasons at the Staples Center, but it will only be on a one-year contract.

Patriots win

Over to the NFL and the New England Patriots began their season with a win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Tom Brady was in excellent condition as he threw four touchdowns - including three to Rob Gronkowski - with the Patriots recording a 28-21 win over their ineffective opponents at the Gillette Stadium in Massachusetts.

Stork injury

Our second piece of NFL news also looks at the Patriots, with Bryan Stork apparently having been placed on Injured Reserve/Designated to Return list.

It’s said that the 24-year-old won’t be available for the Pats until at least Week Nine of the campaign, having been dealing with a concussion over the course of pre-season.
