Home cookin’ for Kyrie

The Mayor has spoken, and Kyrie is back — for home games! New York City has lifted its COVID restrictions and the Nets can now include Kyrie Irving in their lineups for home games.

That good news came before the Nets lost in Memphis on Wednesday night. But Kyrie was on fire yet again.

Tyreek hot takes

The Chiefs orchestrated a blockbuster trade on Wednesday, sending superstar receiver Tyreek Hill to the Miami Dolphins for five (5!) draft picks. The Jets were reportedly one of the two finalists for the deal, but the Dolphins paid a king’s ransom for Hill.

This was the best take we saw on Twitter after the deal yesterday.

Knicks record books

During the Knicks’ outstanding win against the Hornets on Wednesday night, Evan Fournier broke John Starks’ record for most 3-pointers in a season in franchise history. Coach Thibs talked about the accomplishment postgame.

Where there’s a Will…

Will Arnett showed up on TNT’s NHL pregame show on Wednesday night and “officially” tried out to help his beloved Maple Leafs in net. He took shots from the crew — including The Great One.
