Jerry Stackhouse To Join Toronto Raptors Coaching Staff

Former NBA star Jerry Stackhouse is nearing a deal that will make him the newest assistant on Dwane Casey’s coaching staff, according to multiple reports. The Raptors have been rumoured to be looking for a former NBA player to fill one of their vacant assistant coaching jobs—something they didn’t have behind the bench last season—and Stackhouse, an 18 year-vet and two-time All-Star, certainly fits the bill.

Reliever Mike Morin on rehab assignment in Salt Lake as he nears return to Angels

Mike Morin is counting the days. “Thirty-five days feels like a long time,” he said.

Kings coach George Karl eager to get back in gym amid DeMarcus Cousins speculation

A look at 1993 UNC basketball

Dean Smith never revealed who his favorite this or that was, they were all in the same place in his heart and mind, or so he at least always wore that hat. While many UNC fans and observers believe if pressed Smith would have admitted Phil Ford was his favorite player he coached, it wouldn't be far-fetched to imagine the 1992-93 Tar Heels as his favorite team. In a sense, they were the consummate Smith club. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

Kennedy Meeks' continued weight loss

On Monday night, UNC junior center Kennedy Meeks posted a digital scale reading of 260.30 on his personal instagram account with the caption "P.R.O.G.R.E.S.S keep reaching my goals!!".

Yankees send RHP Adam Warren to bullpen after 14-game stint in rotation

For the month of June, Adam Warren has arguably been the New York Yankees' most reliable starting pitcher. However, he will start July out of the starting rotation and back in the bullpen. Warren was informed by the Yankees following their 4-1 loss to the Los Angeles Angels that he would not make his scheduled start Wednesday, but would instead report back to the bullpen, where he is likely to work as the setup man.

2 famous Tar Heels helped UNC pick trademark argyle

When North Carolina in April unveiled its uniform redesign in all sports, it did so with an emphasis on argyle, which has become nearly as signature a feature on the Tar Heels’ men’s basketball uniforms as the Carolina blue color itself.

My Carolina Experience: Greg Ellis

Through the 1996 season, Greg Ellis’s junior year as a All-ACC and All-America defensive end, the Tar Heels were 35-8-1 in Kenan Stadium in the 1990s, including 5-0 in ’96. They would win five of six at home in 1997 and notch back-to-back Top 10 finishes in 1996-97. The defense that Ellis was a part of limited opponents to an average of 217 yards and 11.5 points a game over two seasons. (GoHeels.com)

Former UNC DE Greg Ellis focused on the big screen

For two decades, football was life for former UNC defensive end Greg Ellis. "That's the challenge when you get off football," said Ellis. "All of a sudden, it's over." Always wanting to inspire, Ellis believed the best way to motivate was through entertainment. That led to his next venture, CEO of Play Now Enterprises and perhaps his biggest undertaking, a major motion picture. (WRAL Sports Fan)
