MONTE MORRIS SHOWING OUT. Big "Camp" Tae, who is participating in the Nike Basketball Academy, is apparently killing it.
Here at the Nike Skills Academy for college scrimmages, and the squad with Alec Peters, Josh Hart and Monte' Morris is steamrolling everyone— Rob Dauster (@RobDauster) July 26, 2016
Iowa State's Monte Morris doesn't look super fast, but he's getting to the paint when he wants. Changes speeds well. Finding teammates.— Evan Daniels (@EvanDaniels) July 26, 2016

IF YOU LOVE THE OLYMPICS. You probably shouldn't read this article, which discusses the supposed disaster the Olympics have always been.
NOT SO FAST NEW YORK. Derrick Rose thinks the Knicks are a super-team. Oddly enough, everything going right still doesn't mean they'll make the playoffs.
BRACE YOURSELVES, BAYLOR. The worst is yet to come, according to Penn State coach James Franklin. Can the Bears learn from the Nittany Lions?
WWE THINGS HAVE HAPPENED. Apparently some WWE things happened and I don't understand this sport but felt obliged to include this article.
THIS IS HOW WE WILL BEAT THE RUSSIANS: They will beat themselves! The Russian Olympic contingent could be cut to only 40 members due to doping.
SLUMS VILLAGE DISASTER. Thus far, only 12 of the 31 athlete's village buildings have passed safety inspections. This is fine.
-1 POINTS FOR CHINA. DeAndre Jordan absolutely murdered this shot attempted by an unsuspecting Chinese basketballer. In fact, I think they took a point away from China.
SPEAKING OF BASKETBALL: Lol.
Hmmm. This guy has played as many NBA games as Joel Embiid. So is he the Sixers starting center? https://t.co/p2CjoeD8zb— SportsPickle (@sportspickle) July 26, 2016
MASTERFUL TAPE JOB IMO. Some crafty White Sox fan altered his Chris Sale jersey to make it appear to be a ripped jersey taped back together. Amazing work, friend.
CUBS TO GET CHAPMAN. The Chicago Cubs, in an attempt to create a impenetrable bullpen, have acquired Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman.
GREAT WORK FROM THE RINGER. The title speaks for itself: The Aroldis Chapman Trade Should Make You Feel Uncomfortable.
MJ SPEAKS OUT. The perennial voice of professional basketball, Michael Jordan, has finally spoken out about the the recent violence and racial tension in America.
