Now, the legend has, at the very least, played his last game for the Calgary Flames. So how did a relationship that started with so much promise end so abruptly? There*s no one answer, but rather a few driving factors that have led to Jagr*s imminent departure from Calgary.As a slow-footed &old guy* in a speed-emphasized, young man*s NHL, production trumps everything. Unfortunately for Jagr and the Flames, his offensive-output has dropped dramatically just one season removed from a 46-point (0.56 PPG) campaign with the Panthers. Through 22 games with Calgary, Jagr*s point-per-game pace of 0.31 is the worst of his career, as is his minuscule 3.1 shooting percentage. His primary point production has dropped off mightily, too, with his primary-points-per-60 (all situations) falling over 30 percent to 1.05 this season from 1.55 in 2016-17.There are reasons for this monumental drop in offensive production that extend far beyond Jagr*s dwindling skillset. A decline in ice time and a lack of opportunities in choice situations has certainly effected Jagr*s output, as has an unusual run-in with the injury bug, which the soon-to-be 46-year-old has avoided for the majority of his 24-season NHL career.Since arriving on youth-laden Flames club, Jagr has seen his overall ice time lessened by almost 25 percent. His 13:03 TOI this season is over four minutes less than the 17:06 he averaged the past three seasons, with the majority of that coming at even strength, and while skating on the Flames* third and fourth lines. Jagr has played just 34:51 on the power play through 22 games this season, an average of just over a minute-and-a-half per game. Last season with the Panthers, Jagr averaged just under three minutes TOI per contest with his team a man up.Offensive output along with opportunities to produce are down big time, and maybe the biggest reason for that is Jagr*s inability to stay healthy as he has his entire career. Though he was just a young-buck at the tender age of 44-45, Jagr dressed in all 82 games for Florida last season, the sixth time in his career that he*s suited up for every single one of his team*s contests. The eight-time All Star has dressed in at least 75 games an astonishing 16 campaigns during his career, and has missed just 20 of 458 games (4.4%) since his 39-year-old season in 2012-13. This season alone, Jagr has been sidelined for a whopping 49% of Calgary*s game, missing 21 contests with a lingering lower-body injury which has plagued the two-time Stanley Cup champion for the better part of four months.NASCAR fans are used to hearing controversial things out of Kyle Busch*s mouth 〞 not his brother*s. Well, that changed this week. During the NASCAR Media Tour in Charlotte, N.C., on Tuesday, Kyle said the sport*s emphasis on marketing young drivers is ※stupid.§ Fellow drivers ripped the ever-opinionated Kyle for the comments, but NASCAR itself said the remarks were ※fair.§ Enter Kyle*s brother, Kurt Busch. During a recent appearance on the Domenik Nati Show, Kurt attempted to rationalize his brothers comments. ※I agree with certain aspects of what he*s challenged, and then I disagree with other parts of it,§ Kurt said.

Rafa Nadal stole headlines earlier in the tournament when he wore a sleeveless shirt at the Australian Open recently. It is not a look that Federer dares to replicate. The reason is quite simple, according to Federer. World number one-ranked tennis player Rafa Nadal caused a racket this month. Not because he was forced to withdraw from the Australian Open due to injury, but because he went on the court to play wearing a sleeveless shirt. It is not a trend we can expect Nadal's playing rival Roger Federer to replicate. Not because Federer doesn't love Nadal's.Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer Close Previously worked at Indianapolis Star, covering the Indiana Pacers for nine seasons Also covered Vikings for St. Paul Pioneer Press Follow on Twitter Mike Wells: I think there*s a pretty chance that NC State defensive lineman Bradley Chubb will still be on the board when the Indianapolis Colts draft at No. 3 overall. That*s because the Cleveland Browns and the New York Giants, the teams with the top two picks, both need quarterbacks for the present or the future. The bigger concern -- if you want to call it that -- is that the Colts might not be in the position to choose between Chubb and Penn State running back Saquon Barkley at No. 3. Indianapolis needs help.Mike Schmitz ESPN With 21-year-old rookie stat-stuffer Ben Simmons and 23-year-old All-Star starter Joel Embiid as cornerstones, the Philadelphia 76ers have one of the most exciting young cores in the NBA. Sprinkle in high-level role starters such as Dario Saric (23) and Robert Covington (27), and young bench contributors T.J. McConnell (25) and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot (22) and there's reason for the optimism flowing through Philly, even with prized No. 1 pick Markelle Fultz yet to regain form. The Sixers are competitive (No. 7 in the East) while still sitting on young talent and future assets. But with all the well-deserved focus on Philly's talented, young roster and its future draft picks,2018 Dallas Cowboys Mock Draft Tracker - John Hancock, DallasNews Ten experts make their draft predictions for who they believe the Cowboys will select with the 19th overall pick. Here's from Mel Kiper Jr.'s pick: The rest of the experts are picking the following players: DT Maurice Hurst (3), DT Da'Ron Payne (2), DT Christian Wilkins [did not enter the draft], WR Michael Gallup, WR Christian Kirk, S Derwin James, Check out the write-up on each in the orginal article. If you've ever watched the Cowboy war room when they are on the clock in the second round, you can usually see them pretty excited about a player still left on the board. Last year, that excitement came from Chidobe Awuzie, A couple weeks ago, Matt Provenzano went over how the Yankees looked according to Dan Szymborski*s ZiPS projections. Spoiler alert: they look good. Projections are not a fail-safe, and reality will always diverge from what is forecast. That the Yankees project demonstrably better now than they did in recent years, however, can only be taken as a good sign. There are other teams the Yankees must contend with, however. Chief among them are the Red Sox. Indeed, Boston has won the AL East each of the past two seasons. No matter how good the Yankees look moving forward, the Red Sox are still here, and they must be taken seriously. Just how seriously? It helps to once again turn to ZiPS to get a feel.It*s the worst-kept secret in the NBA that the Los Angeles Lakers have plans on luring two big free agents this summer, but in order to do so they will need to clear some salary cap space. Jordan Clarkson and Julius Randle have been mentioned ad nauseum as potential trade candidates, but a somewhat surprising inclusion recently was Larry Nance Jr. Once called the team*s secret weapon by president of basketball operations Magic Johnson, Nance began the season as a starter, but now comes off the bench. Either way, he constantly provides excellent defense and hustle, even as his offensive game hasn*t developed as much as many had hoped, himself included. Many viewed the Lakers possibly shopping.The Cavaliers' Dwyane Wade posted an emotional farewell to Instagram on Saturday after the passing of his agent Henry "Hank" Thomas. A representative from Thomas' agency, CAA, confirmed his passing to Sports Illustrated. Wade had missed the Cavaliers game on Friday night against the Pacers with a "family emergency." In the post, Wade wrote about how Thomas served as a father figure to him and he wished he would be there for the next moments in his life.

These are the one remaining free-agent fit for every team. The Royals have re-signed Alcides Escobar. The Mets have re-signed veteran infielder Jose Reyes. As reported by our Sports Boy Wonder Chris Cotillo,The Cardinals have been fairly quiet since their Dec. 14 trade for Marcell Ozuna. While the Ozuna addition surely moves the needle when it comes to the Cardinals' chances of making the postseason in 2018, needs remain. Mostly, the focus has been on third base. While you can certainly argue that a known quantity in the infield is called for, I'd argue the rotation presents more of a need. Here's why that's the case ... 1. The Cardinals have lost a lot of starts from last season. In keeping with ancient tradition and the rulebook, the Cardinals played 162 games in 2017. Lance Lynn and Mike Leake combined to start 59 of those 162 games, or 36.4 percent of them. Lynn is of course one of the many..One of the earlier Chinese New Year selections to surface this year was the Air Force 1 Low.

CLEVELAND -- Coach Tyronn Lue relented and the Cleveland Cavaliers will trot out a new starting lineup Friday against the Indiana Pacers. The Cavs are reeling, losing two straight and 11 of the last 15 games. They are the league's second-worst defensive team -- the worst in the past 15 games -- and have struggled tremendously to make virtually anything work with Isaiah Thomas on the court. But Thomas isn't the change. Lue will start Tristan Thompson at center and slide Kevin Love back to power forward. It means Jae Crowder goes to the bench. Lue has resisted making lineup and rotation changes while the Cavs are in a rut.

Following a similar aesthetic, Elliott keeps things very simple with this design, so much so, that at first glance, it might just look like the OG white colorway. Upon closer inspection, it is clear that the shoe*s construction has been altered. At the end of 2017, Elliott was tasked with creating this design to further the celebration of the iconic sneaker*s 35th anniversary.Acknowledging that it was difficult to make a unique design while having to keep the sneaker all white, Elliott opted to add dimension and layers to the silhouette in order to add depth and shadows. One of the more unique elements, was the decision to die-cut the midfoot Swoosh and place pebbled leather in its place to create the appearance of going inward.

  • Major League Baseball free agency has been at a standstill all offseason, and Scott Boras has some things to say about it. Boras was asked about the slow market 〞 in which many of his clients are still looking for jobs 〞 and, as usual, he did not hold back.Boras spoke to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic about his disappointment with the way teams are acting this offseason. He specifically took aim at the clubs that are not planning to field a competitive team in 2018.Those are some pretty strong words, but do they hold weight? Are 10 teams really not trying to be competitive in 2018, or is Boras being hyperbolic?Those are some pretty strong words, but do they hold weight?

The 6-foot-1, 170-pound Walker isn*t exactly a lockdown defender, but he*d be an upgrade over what the Cavs trot out at the point of attack now, while bringing the mix of pick-and-roll playmaking and 3-point shooting, both on and off the ball, that Cleveland*s been missing. (He*s also locked up for next year on a bargain contract, ensuring you*ve got one more high-level, likable player around should LeBron decide to leave this summer.) Williams is exactly the kind of floor-spacing forward who tends to thrive alongside LeBron. He also plays defense, which is nice.

  • He*s not used to having such choices. When he picked first in 2013 with the Chiefs there wasn*t a quarterback worth it and he ended up taking left tackle Eric Fisher. The highest drafted quarterback that year was EJ Manuel at 16, and he*s now the Raiders* backup.※In 2013, I had the first pick in the draft with the Kansas City Chiefs, and there really wasn*t a quarterback prospect there,§ Dorsey told cleveland.com and a small group of reporters here. ※Actually in this class there are four to five prospects that make you think at least are they worthy of that position. So now I think what you do is you let the process unfold.§

  • The defending NBA champs, the winningest team in the league three seasons and running, entered the second quarter with a lead only four times.Nine opponents shot at least 50 percent from the field, including one (the Grizzlies on Dec. 30) that was at 65.2 and another (the Trail Blazers on Dec. 11) at 60 percent.
    "I think we got back to our defensive fundamentals," said reserve point guard Fred VanVleet, who scored a team-high 19 points. "A little bit better rhythm within our offense, passing the ball, we had it moving a little better. Guys were able to knock down shots and just play unselfish basketball."The Jazz (20-28) are 6-19 on the road after they rallied to defeat the Detroit Pistons 98-95 in overtime on Wednesday to go 4-6 in their past 10. The Jazz were coming off a loss to the Hawks on Monday."We were down late and were able to string together some stops," Jazz coach Quin Snyder said after the game on Wednesday. "It's good to win. We missed a few layups and some open shots, but we made them when we needed to."The Raptors already have a win over the Jazz, a 109-100 verdict on Nov. 3 in Salt Lake City, and are going for a season sweep of Utah for the fourth time in the past five seasons.As the Raptors press to gain home-court advantage through the conference finals, coach Dwane Casey still has concerns, particularly with the way the team has performed late in close games."Where we're having an issue is at the end of games," Casey told the Toronto Sun. "We've changed dramatically from being one of the top offensive teams in the league to bottom five in the league in the last five minutes."In games in which the difference in the score is five points or fewer with five minutes or fewer remaining, the Raptors have gone from sixth and 10th in field-goal percentage and points-per-game during clutch time last season to 21st and 17th in those categories this season."A lot of that is. ... disorganization between what we're doing as far as moving the ball, ball movement, playing to our triggers, and that's what we've got to get back to," Casey said. "We kind of fell back from that, some of it is personnel-driven, different personnel in the game (at) the end of the game, whether it's a defensive unit that we have in, so we have to get that organized as a staff to make sure guys understand what we're doing last five minutes of the game."We have to continue to play in our triggers and not go into so-called 'called' plays the last five minutes of the game.""Last year, we always reverted to going to a lot of isolation every time down," Raptors guard DeMar DeRozan said. "This time around, we are still getting a feel for trying to move the ball, trying to put the isolation game in and trying to figure it out. There are so many elements that we are still trying to figure out rather than going with what works or whatever has been working throughout the game and carrying it over to that moment."Meanwhile, there have been reports of tension with the Jazz as trade rumors abound and the team has struggled since posting a 13-11 record after winning their sixth straight game on Dec. 4. Jazz guard/forward Joe Ingles suggests that the reports are exaggerated."The end of the day it's really only us and the coaching staff and the guys in the locker room that knows what's going on," Ingles told the Salt Lake Tribune. "Everyone else just assumes and makes assumptions or does what they have to do. I love how we've stuck together.""We have a bunch of guys who want to get better and want to be better, that's been our biggest thing," Jazz rookie guard Donovan Mitchell said. "When you have guys like Joe who defend our locker room and our team, it's just leaders like that who keep guys together."If you've been keeping up with the Cleveland Cavaliers drama that's reportedly focused on Kevin Love, you're probably going to look for signs on the court that there's serious trouble in the locker room. That brings us to this video from Tuesday's Cavaliers loss to the San Antonio Spurs - Love got knocked down in the paint as LaMarcus Aldridge scores over him. Then? Hmmm. It sure looks like Jae Crowder steps right over Love, who has a hand up to ask for some help. Now, look: It could be that Crowder had to grab the ball for an inbounds pass or perhaps risk a delay-of-game if he picked up Love. Or he was frustrated that the Cavs were down by 13 at that point.

  • The Cavs are reeling, losing two straight and 11 of the last 15 games. They are the league's second-worst defensive team -- the worst in the past 15 games -- and have struggled tremendously to make virtually anything work with Isaiah Thomas on the court.But Thomas isn't the change. Lue will start Tristan Thompson at center and slide Kevin Love back to power forward. It means Jae Crowder goes to the bench.

  • USA Today senior college football analyst Dan Wolken published his CFB Playoff predictions for the 2018 season Tuesday and he went all chalk ... almost. Wolken likes Clemson, Alabama, Ohio State and Washington to get to the final four, the same group of teams that reached the Playoff at the end of the 2016 season. : Early 2018 Heisman Trophy odds The Buckeyes' biggest threat in the Big Ten is Michigan State, not Wisconsin, he says and believes the Spartans could benefit from quarterback uncertainty at Michigan and personnel losses at Penn State. As for the possibility of Alabama-Clemson Part IV, Wolken writes: "We*ll see how long it takes before people grow tired of this, but you should go ahead.Jerry Montgomery*s time with Texas A&M didn*t last long. Just a few weeks after agreeing to be the new associate head coach and defensive line coach for the Aggies, Montgomery decided to return to Green Bay to serve as Mike McCarthy*s defensive line coach with the Packers. The Packers announced his new position in Green Bay on Wednesday. ※It was the right move for me and my family,§ Montgomery said, according to Ryan Wood of PackersNews.com. ※I got on a plane, got back and met with Coach. Now I*m here, and I*m excited to work with the guys. Love the room, love the outside of the room, and look forward to developing the young guys and getting them where the older guys are.§ Montgomery had served.Ryan McGee ESPN Senior Writer Close Senior writer for ESPN The Magazine and ESPN.com 2-time Sports Emmy winner 2010, 2014 NMPA Writer of the Year Follow on Twitter CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Young guys vs. old guys. Same as it ever was. When the 2018 NASCAR Media Tour started, no one had a clue what topic would emerge to dominate the annual handful of days stock car racing sets aside to do some talking and writing and more talking and then more writing. In years past, the theme has been an easy guess. But this year there was no kickoff news conference from NASCAR itself. There was no big change to the postseason format (thank heavens), no series title sponsorship announcement, no nothing. No touchstone.嚗

  • Following its JUICE HK collaboration, the adidas NMD Racer is back once again with two colorways that are fittingly bold to match its new boisterous tooling. First, is a Vivid Pink colorway that uses black details and a matching outsole for contrast, finished off with some colorful hits on its arch stabilizers. Alongside it is the Ash Grey variety that assumes a bit of a more understated color scheme featuring blue and orange accents. Once again, the Three Stripes masterfully blends classic design concepts with contemporary stylings for its newest NMD model. Mark your calendars for February 2nd when both of these new NMD Racer colorways will be available at adidas stockists worldwide.
