If you purchase an independently reviewed product or service through a link on our website, Rolling Stone may receive an affiliate commission.

The world’s best tennis players are about to hit the clay at the 2022 French Open. With January’s Australian Open already five months behind us, the French Open — also known as the Roland-Garros tournament — promises tennis fans some much-needed excitement.

If you’re looking to watch the French Open in 2022, read on. Below is everything you need to know about the Grand Slam tournament, including how to watch the French Open on TV, where to stream the French Open online in 2022, and even a few tips on how to watch the French Open for free online.

When Is the French Open? 2022 Dates

The 2022 French Open starts on Sunday, May 22, and will run through Sunday, June 5.

How to Watch the 2022 French Open on TV

To watch the French Open on TV, head to NBC and Tennis Channel. The two networks will be splitting coverage of the Roland Garros tournament, although NBC will be the only channel to watch the French Open finals on TV.

Because some French Open matches begin as early as 5 a.m. ET, NBC will have replays beginning at more reasonable hours for viewers in the U.S. A digital TV antenna (like this one from Amazon) will get you free access to your local NBC affiliate if you want to watch the French Open on TV.

How to Watch the 2022 French Open Online

Don’t have cable? Don’t worry: Cord-cutters can still watch the 2022 French Open online. Below are a few ways to stream the French Open online in 2022, and even a couple ways to watch the French Open online for free.

1. Stream the French Open on Peacock

One of the easiest (and cheapest) ways to watch the French Open online is on Peacock. The NBC streaming service will have live streams of important rounds — including the Championship Weekend matches — letting you watch the French Open online all week.

Buy: Free Trial at Peacock

A subscription to Peacock Premium costs $4.99 per month, or $9.99 per month for the ad-free version. However, Peacock offers a seven-day free trial, which gives you enough time to watch the French Open for free online.

2. Stream the French Open on Sling

Sling gets you live access to both NBC and Tennis Channel, letting you watch the French Open online in the U.S. You’ll be able to watch live matches, as well as replays and championship matches on NBC and Tennis Channel.

Sling costs $35 per month, but, right now, the streamer is giving new customers 50% off their first month’s bill. You’ll also need the Sports Extra package, which costs $11 per month, to get Tennis Channel. All told, your first month’s bill will be $28.50 to watch the French Open online using Sling.

Buy: Sling + Sports Extra at $28.50

3. Stream the French Open on DirecTV Stream

One of our favorite ways to watch tennis online is DirecTV Stream. It’s essentially a cable package turned into a streaming service, and gets you live access to Tennis Channel and NBC to stream the French Open online.

You’ll need DirecTV Stream’s Choice subscription tier to get both NBC and Tennis Chanel and watch the French Open live. This normally costs $89.99 per month, but DirecTV Stream is currently offering $30 off your first two months, bringing the first two payments down to $74.99. Better yet, DirecTV Stream has a five-day free trial, letting you stream the French Open online for free.

Buy: Free Trial at DirecTV Stream

4. Stream the French Open on fuboTV

Another good streaming service to watch the French Open online in 2022 is fuboTV. With NBC and Tennis Channel live streams, you’ll be able to stream the French Open live without cable.

A fuboTV subscription costs $69.99 per month, but comes with a seven-day free trial to watch the French Open for free. To watch the French Open on Tennis Channel through fuboTV, you’ll also need the fuboTV Extra add-on which costs $7.99 per month.

Buy: Free Trial at fuboTV

How to Stream the 2022 French Open Online Free

If you want to watch the French Open online for free, there are a few hacks that let you do just that.

Because the tournament is only two weeks long, you can take advantage of free trials from the services above to stream the French Open for free from start to finish. We suggest using the seven-day free trial to Peacock or the seven-day free trial to fuboTV to get the whole week of matches without paying. You can also use the DirecTV Stream five-day free trial to watch the French Open for free, although it won’t last for the whole tournament.

French Open 2022: Players, Odds, Predictions

As always, the French Open will brings tennis’ most elite players.

In the Men’s Singles tournament, Novak Djokovic has emerged as the favorite with odds of +180, edging out 19-year-old Carlos Alcaraz’s odds of +225. The latter has been on a tear this season, securing four titles (including three on clay courts), but Djokovic’s win at the Italian Open has made him the favorite. Coming in third is 13-time French Open champion ​​Rafael Nadal with +275.

In the Women’s Singles tournament, Iga Swiatek leads as the favorite with odds of +120. Naomi Osaka — who withdrew from last year’s French Open — is currently ranked ninth with odds of +2300.

Notable absences this year are tennis legends Serena Williams and Rodger Federer, who have both announced that they’ll be skipping the competition. Williams has been out since last year’s Wimbledon tournament with an ankle injury, while Federer’s knee recovery isn’t far enough along to handle the hard clay at Roland Garros court.

Butler, Heat blast past Celtics in Game 1

The Miami Heat ripped Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals from the Boston Celtics in the third quarter.

Jimmy Butler scored 27 of his 41 points after the break, and Miami's defense locked down Boston to flip an eight-point halftime deficit into a 17-point lead by the end of the third quarter in a 118-107 conquest.

The Celtics lost Al Horford to health and safety protocols in the hours before the series started and ruled Marcus Smart out with the right mid-foot sprain he suffered in Game 7 of their second-round playoff series. Whether they ran out of gas two days after their hard-fought battle with the defending champion Milwaukee Bucks or succumbed to Miami's relentlessness, the Celtics collapsed after halftime and never recovered.

The Heat, who were also without Kyle Lowry (hamstring), found scoring from Tyler Herro (18 points, eight rebounds), Gabe Vincent (17 points) and Max Strus (11 points). Their defense changed the course of a game that nearly got away from them, amassing 12 blocks and forcing 16 turnovers (turned into 19 points).

The Celtics also lost center Robert Williams III with six minutes remaining in the game. He experienced cramping in his left leg, which also required meniscus surgery in March and suffered a bone bruise against the Bucks. After missing the last four games of the conference semifinals, Williams returned to the starting lineup against the Heat and anchored a defense that slowed Miami early, staking Boston to an 18-9 start.

Herro, the Sixth Man of the Year, settled the Heat's offense, totaling seven of his points and three of his assists in the first quarter to withstand Boston's early onslaught and keep their deficit respectable, 28-25.

Jayson Tatum scored 21 of his 29 points in the first half, when the Celtics led by as many as 13 points and 62-54 at the break. But Miami never quit. Butler and Bam Adebayo totaled seven points on a 10-1 run to start the second half, giving the Heat their first lead since they inched ahead for 16 seconds in the first quarter.

Butler inspired a stifling defensive effort after Boston shot 59% from the field in the first half. Two straight steals led to four of his 11 points during Miami's 22-2 start to the third quarter. The Celtics trailed, 76-64. When the third quarter was done, Boston had eight turnovers and just two field goals on 15 attempts.

The Heat's lead reached 96-76 on three Herro free throws to start the fourth quarter. Boston was lost. Jaylen Brown could not find any seams in the defense, and the Celtics were relying on Payton Pritchard, Daniel Theis and Aaron Nesmith off the bench — three players on the fringes of their healthy rotation.

The Celtics scratched back within nine points with seven minutes remaining and 114-107 just inside of two minutes, but Butler and the Heat had an answer for every run. His block of Pritchard erased Boston's final hope, and his last-minute layup gave him the fifth 40-point game of his playoff career and third this year.

  • A fight photographer may have rescued a boxer from suffering a concussion.
  • Super flyweight Jan Salvatierra had already been sent flying through the ropes in a Saturday bout.

A photographer stopped working a fight event Saturday so he could help a boxer who had literally been beaten out of the ring.

It happened during John Ramirez and Jan Salvatierra's super flyweight bout in California's Toyota Arena, at a Golden Boy Promotions boxing show broadcast on DAZN.

Heavy-hitting Ramirez won by first-round knockout after sending Salvatierra flying through the ropes.

The fight-finishing flurry had clearly dazed Salvatierra, and if not for a quick-thinking photographer who was shooting the action from the ring apron, things could have been far worse.

Video footage appears to show the photographer manage to cradle his hand on the back of Salvatierra's head, which prevented the fighter from hitting the hard floor.

This action likely rescued Salvatierra from further injury.

Though Salvatierra can be seen returning to the ring, it was deemed too little, too late, as the referee called time on the action, and awarded Ramirez the win.

Watch the knockout, and the photographer in action, right here:

John Ramirez, who advanced his undefeated pro boxing record to 10 wins (eight knockouts) with the victory, said his opponent "made a mistake, and he had to pay" because "he was not on my level."

The 25-year-old has never fought beyond a regional level in combat sports but used his time in the spotlight to challenge one of his division's world title holders.

"I want to fight the best out there, I don't care," Ramirez added. "How can you be the best if you don't face the best out there?"

In the main event, Gilberto Ramirez maintained his winning run with a knockout over Dominic Boesel.

UEFA Europa League picks for Real Madrid vs. Liverpool

Before you tune in to the match, you need to see the Champions League final picks from soccer insider Brandt Sutton. Sutton, a former collegiate soccer player, has been SportsLine's top soccer editor for nearly five years. He has followed soccer closely for much longer and factors in managerial tactics, projected lineups and past performances to make the most informed decisions possible, keeping his finger on the pulse of the game all over the globe. 

Sutton has also been on a roll with his best bets, going 81-61 in his last 142 soccer picks, returning over $2,500 for $100 bettors.

For Real Madrid vs. Liverpool, Sutton is backing over 2.5 goals scored for a -140 payout. Each squad nearly eclipsed that bar on its own during the group and knockout stages of the tournament. Liverpool averaged 2.5 goals per match, while Real Madrid put up 2.33.

The teams possess the individual talent and playmakers to make this a high-scoring affair, highlighted by Real's Karim Benzema. He has the third-most goals in UCL history (86), while his 15 goals this year lead the tournament. Mohamed Salah of LFC ranks fourth in the 2022 UEFA Champions League with eight goals and is one of three Liverpool players with at least five goals in the competition.

The potency of both teams has been evident all season in their respective domestic leagues. Real leads La Liga with 73 goals scored, while Liverpool is second in the EPL with 89. Real's last five UCL games have seen more than 2.5 goals, while more than 2.5 goals have been scored in three of Liverpool's last four Champions League matches. Recent matchups between the two also favor the over, as two of their last three meetings have seen exactly four goals scored.

Kevin Owens Gives Update On Triple H's Condition Following WWE Return - Wrestling Inc.

If there’s one person Kevin Owens feels a debt of gratitude toward for his success in WWE, it would be WWE legend Triple H.

In a recent interview with TalkSport, Owens talked about just how big a deal Triple H has been for his career.

“I wouldn’t be here without him,” Owens said. “That’s all that comes to it. When you say full stop, that is it. Nobody has done more for me than Triple H in my career.”

While Triple H was instrumental to Kevin Owens’ career offscreen, the two only crossed paths sparingly onscreen before Triple H retired earlier this year due to a heart condition.

“I think I echo what everyone has said; it’s very unfortunate in the way he didn’t get to retire in the ring, but he made the right decision for himself and his family,” Owens said of Triple H’s retirement. “So that’s the right decision, it’s a good decision. Selfishly, I wish I would’ve had the chance to wrestle him and he and I talked about that before. I think we both assumed that eventually, it was going to happen. It won’t be able to happen but in the grand scheme of things, who cares, ya know?

Kevin Owens then revealed that he had seen Triple H recently and described how the future WWE Hall of Famer looked.

“Seeing him yesterday was so great,” Owens said. “Seeing him around after a few months of not seeing when he used to be everywhere all the time, and he looked amazing, sounded amazing, it was great. Because that dude has done so much for so many people in this industry. There was always this reputation about him, right?

“I always thought he was good at what he did and to me, he always elevated the shows he was on and the people he was working with so I never really got that vibe of the reputation. I wasn’t surprised when I met him that he was a guy who was all about growing the industry and giving people a chance. He proved my assumptions right many times over the past few years and a lot of us, a lot of us, wouldn’t be here without him.”

Barcelona vs. Lyon preview, TV channel, stream, lineups for UEFA Women's Champions ...

Barcelona and Lyon head to the Juventus Stadium for the UEFA Women's Champions League in a historic final in Turin.

The Catalan giants claimed their first Champions League title in 2021, as part of an incredible treble-winning campaign, and they will be looking to defend the trophy against the French giants.

Victory in the 2022 final would confirm Barcelona as the fourth club to defend the title, alongside VfL Wolfsburg, Umea and Lyon, since its inception in 2002.

Lyon's record of seven titles places them as the most successful club in the history of the competition, with their only final defeats coming against German sides, in 2010 and 2013.

Colts garnering attention as notable Week 1 game

The NFL released its regular season schedule on Thursday night which in turn gave us a full slate of Week 1 games to look forward to. While we're still about four months away from kickoff, betting lines for the first week of action have already been posted. Who are the oddsmakers projecting to win in Week 1? What are the most intriguing games on the schedule from a betting perspective?

Only one spread over a touchdown

In Week 1 of the NFL season, five spreads are currently set at a field goal or lower. Of 16 games in Week 1, 15 of them currently have a spread lower than a touchdown. Both conferences feel wide open with a multitude of teams capable of challenging for the playoffs in both the AFC and NFC. The original lines for Week 1 suggest a league with an increased amount of parity.

The only team favored by more than a touchdown in Week 1 is the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts are 7.5-point road favorites in Houston against the Texans. Both teams missed the playoffs last season, but the Colts finished with five more wins than their division rivals. Indianapolis enters with an assumed upgrade at quarterback, going from Carson Wentz to Matt Ryan in the offseason.

The second-largest spread comes in the Titans-Giants game, where Tennessee is a 6.5-point home favorite. The Titans finished last season as the top seed in the AFC before a disappointing playoff showing in the divisional round against the Cincinnati Bengals. Brian Daboll enters his first season as the coach of the Giants, and he's a current co-favorite to win the Coach of the Year award.

Other notable games

There's no shortage of intriguing games on the Week 1 schedule. What are oddsmakers saying about some marquee games that kick off the season?

Buffalo vs. L.A. Rams

The season kicks off on Thursday, Sept. 8 with the Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams hosting the Buffalo Bills. The Rams have opened as 1-point favorites, but there are places where the Bills are listed as the slight favorite. Matthew Stafford, Cooper Kupp, Aaron Donald and company have their hands full in the first game of their title defense with Josh Allen coming to town. The total opened at 52.5 points, the second highest of Week 1 behind the Chiefs-Cardinals matchup.

Cleveland vs. Carolina

The Browns-Panthers game is intriguing because it offers potential early value if you could predict the quarterback future of these teams. The Browns are 4.5-point favorites on the road, which feels rather steep if Jacoby Brissett is under center. It also doesn't feel steep enough if Deshaun Watson avoids suspension. The Carolina Panthers have been one of the teams linked to Baker Mayfield. Is there a chance the current, soon-to-be former Browns quarterback goes up against the team that drafted him in Week 1? Those that appreciate Mayfield's "chip on the shoulder" attitude would love that.

Las Vegas vs. L.A. Chargers

The AFC West is the most intriguing division in football. The Raiders are coming off a season where they made the playoffs, but most are projecting them to finish at the bottom of the division. The Chargers are the offseason hype darling this year, and Los Angeles is a 4-point favorite at home over the Raiders. Is this the year the Chargers finally play to their potential?

Green Bay vs. Minnesota

Davante Adams is gone, but the Green Bay Packers are still prohibitive favorites to win the NFC North. Their biggest competition will likely come from the Minnesota Vikings. The two teams meet in Week 1, with Green Bay installed as a 1.5-point road favorite over the Vikings. It's a short price on Green Bay, and the Packers were money for bettors in spots like this last season.

Tampa Bay vs. Dallas

Two of the NFC's top teams will meet in Dallas on "Sunday Night Football." This matchup is much more appealing now that Tom Brady ended his retirement. Brady and the Buccaneers open as 2.5-point favorites in Dallas to begin the season. These teams played in Week 1 to open the season in 2021. The Buccaneers were 7.5-point home favorites, and won the game, 31-29, but failed to cover the spread. It's worth noting that game was in Tampa Bay.

Denver vs. Seattle

Russell Wilson gets his return to Seattle out of the way nice and early. Wilson and the Broncos are expected to be contenders in the AFC West, but the same can't be said about his former team in Seattle. The looming camp battle between Drew Lock and Geno Smith isn't inspiring confidence, but Denver is just a 3.5-point road favorite in the first Monday night game of the season.

Other matchups

  • Kansas City (-3) @ Arizona

  • Philadelphia (-3.5) @ Detroit

  • Jacksonville @ Washington (-4.5)

  • San Francisco (-6) @ Chicago

  • Pittsburgh @ Cincinnati (-6)

  • New England @ Miami (-3)

  • New Orleans (-3.5) @ Atlanta

  • Baltimore (-4.5) @ NY Jets

Report: 76ers not expected to offer James Harden max contract

The Nets tried to sign James Harden to a three-year, $161,141,718 max contract extension in October. When his team traded for Harden in February, 76ers owner Josh Harris giddily declared, “This is going to be awesome.” In March, 76ers president Daryl Morey – who let Harden do whatever he wanted with the Rockets while heaping praise on the guard – called Harden “my basketball Jesus.”

But life comes at you fast.

Brian Windhorst of ESPN:

I think, at this point, nobody in the NBA believes that the 76ers are going to give James Harden a max contract.

Harden had a dreary postseason, especially his low-energy performance (zero points on two shots) in the second half of Philadelphia’s final game. Eligible to opt in and sign a max extension that’d pay him $270,179,999 over the next five years, Harden looked far from deserving of that deal.

The big question: What contract will Harden get?

Maybe he’ll exercise his $47,366,760 player option then try to sign long-term when his stock is higher. That’d be risky, but there’d be upside for the former MVP. He could get healthier and play better.

The 32-year-old could also opt out and sign a longer contract with a lower starting salary but more total compensation. That could be in conjunction with taking a discount to allow the 76ers to add a third star with Joel Embiid and Harden (or, cynically, a second star with Embiid). There are Bradley Beal rumors.

Harden could even explore free agency. Though he keeps saying he wants to be in Philadelphia, he said similar things about Brooklyn before forcing a trade. However, there isn’t an obvious outside suitor.

This likely come down to internal leverage between Harden and the 76ers. Once thought to be Philadelphia offering a max contract and Harden either accepting it or not (or choosing to take a discount), these negotiations will be more complicated.

Disco Inferno on why WWE Superstars Randy Orton and Riddle would fail in AEW - Sportskeeda

WCW legend Disco Inferno recently spoke about the potential of Randy Orton and Riddle, a.k.a RK-Bro, in AEW.

The Apex Predator has been a stalwart and one of the most consistent performers over the last two decades for WWE. While Orton has achieved everything a wrestler would hope to do in the company, he has made it clear that he has never entertained the thought of leaving WWE for AEW.

Despite rumors of his departure running sporadically over the years, The Viper has repeatedly stated that he would be a WWE lifer. Orton, at 42, is still going strong, as he is relishing his second reign as the RAW Tag Team Champions alongside Riddle.

While speaking on the Keepin' It 100 podcast, Inferno spoke hypothetically about how RK-Bro would be "neutered" under the AEW system. The WCW veteran created a big contrast between the two promotions, as he pointed out how Tony Khan doesn't prioritize character development while WWE focuses on every aspect:

"If you took like RK-Bro [Randy Orton and Riddle] and put them in the AEW system, they'd be neutered, or they'd have backstage interviews for a minute and a half, you know, they wouldn't have the in-rings where they'd confrontate, you know, they just won't be doing that. Because they don't do that on their show and that's the thing is like, dude, you're not spending enough time on character development, which is why your characters are underwhelming," Inferno said.

Disco Inferno recently put RK-Bro over top AEW tag teams

While RK-Bro might not be as experienced as a team, Disco Inferno has hailed the alliance between Orton and Riddle as the best thing currently going today.

The WCW veteran recently called the duo superior to top teams like The Young Bucks and FTR:

"If you ask Meltzer, the Dirt Sheet guys or AEW or the internet wrestling community, right? Who the best tag team in the world is, right now? They'll probably say like either Young Bucks or FTR, right? And I'll say, you know what? I'm watching RK-Bro, and it's like, they work very well in the ring together. They've got a fantastic personality. Like they got a lot of charisma.

On SmackDown next week, RK-Bro (RAW Tag Team Champions) will face The Usos (SmackDown Tag Team Champions) in a highly-anticipated title unification match.

Finding value for NFL's Comeback Player of Year

Any time you can successfully fade the top two favorites in a betting market, you’re well on your way to finding some value. That’s exactly what we’re going to do with this year’s NFL Comeback Player of the Year award. The icing on this value cake is that BetMGM is offering the longest odds of any sportsbook on many of these players.

Fading the favorites

Tennessee Titans wrecking ball Derrick Henry sits atop the field as a +300 favorite to win the award. I’m passing up on the running back for a plethora of reasons. First of all, he already made his comeback from a right foot fracture at the end of last season when he returned for Tennessee’s home playoff loss to the Bengals.

Henry is a machine, but he’s a machine that has taken a pounding. His 900 carries over the last three seasons leads the NFL by a healthy margin. Dalvin Cook ranks second with 811 totes, despite playing two more games. Henry often finishes his runs in the field of play, and all those hits add up over time. I’m not saying he’ll be a dud this season; I just don’t think there’s enough value at +300 for the kind of numbers he’ll need to post to get this award.

The other favorite who I’m fading is Deshaun Watson (+650). Even if Watson dodges a suspension this season and puts up MVP numbers, I can’t see a majority of writers voting for him to win any honors. When Mike Vick was named Comeback Player of the Year in 2010, he had already served time, expressed remorse for his actions and sat through an entire season on the bench in 2009.

Five players we like:

This is going to seem like one of us is having a stroke when you read this next part, but it’s true: Winston was enjoying an MVP season last year before tearing his ACL. Famous Jameis threw 14 touchdowns and just three interceptions as the Saints went 5-2 in the seven games he started. New Orleans went 4-6 without him and missed the playoffs, but at least we know that the LASIK surgery worked.

Winston has been putting in the work to get back out on the field. When he does, he’ll have an upgraded receiving corps that includes 11th overall pick Chris Olave and the return of Michael Thomas.

Quarterbacks have won this award the last four years and 10 of the last 14 times. Of the previous eight winners, seven players were returning from injuries. BetMGM’s +750 price on Winston is currently the longest odds offered by any sportsbook.

Michael Thomas, New Orleans Saints (+900)

It’s impossible to know which version of Thomas will return from his ankle injury and general malaise, but I’m willing to wager a small amount that the NFL’s single-season receptions record holder still has some gas left in the tank.

The target tree in New Orleans only has a few branches and Thomas is the biggest one when he’s healthy. A return to dominance could make him the first wide receiver to win the award since Keenan Allen in 2017.

Star power goes a long way when it comes to this trophy. If you’re not overcoming a life-threatening injury or illness like Alex Smith in 2020 or Eric Berry in 2015, it helps to be a household name. The top pick in fantasy football drafts over the last few years definitely has that.

In 2019, McCaffrey became only the third player in NFL history to gain 1,000 rushing yards and 1,000 receiving yards in a single season. He’s an unbelievable talent.

The Panthers’ front office, unfortunately, isn’t so talented. Their decisions to rush McCaffrey back to action through his injuries in 2020 and 2021 were borderline negligent.

No running back has won the award since Garrison Hearst in 2001, but I think there’s serious value on Run CMC this year. He’ll only be 26 years old when the season kicks off and he’s an elite weapon with a brand new mauling left tackle in sixth overall pick Ikem Ekwonu.

McCaffrey’s +1800 price on BetMGM is much longer than the +800 and +1200 you’ll find on other books.

The Rams ranked fifth in passing yards last season, throwing the ball on 60% of their offensive plays. Robert Woods is gone and Odell Beckham Jr. hasn’t been re-signed, opening the door for football vacuum Robinson to see a ton of volume.

Matthew Stafford will be the wide receiver's first good quarterback, after Robinson suffered through years of QB’s like Blake Bortles, Mitch Trubisky and Nick Foles.

It’s fair to question whether Robinson still has the ability to separate like he used to, but he’s still blessed with incredible hands and should get plenty of opportunities in the red zone while the defense have their own hands full with Cooper Kupp. A double-digit touchdown campaign following his 12-game, one-touchdown season could be enough to win Comeback Player of the Year.

There are a number of perfect landing spots for Fuller, who missed most of 2021 with a broken thumb. The speedster would fit right in with Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay.

Maybe the best fit, though, would be a reunion with Watson in Cleveland. The two torched the league when they were together in Houston, with Fuller catching 10 touchdowns in their first seven games together and then eight touchdowns in their last nine games as a duo. Cleveland finally has a quarterback who can throw an accurate deep ball and Fuller would give them a receiver who can catch it.

Some sportsbooks have Fuller as low as 14-to-1 to win Comeback Player of the Year. A lot has to go right for him to walk away with the trophy, but there’s some good value at 66-to-1 on BetMGM.

Steph Curry takes jab at Dillon Brooks over Warriors 'getting old' comment

Steph takes jab at Brooks for Warriors 'getting old' comment originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

Dillon Brooks had a few things to say after his Memphis Grizzlies were eliminated from the NBA playoffs Saturday night in a 110-96 loss to the Warriors in Game 6 of the Western Conference semifinals.

Most notably, Brooks told reporters that the Warriors know Memphis will be taking aim at them in the years to come, citing how "old" Golden State's core is getting and the youth of the Grizzlies' roster.

Those comments were relayed to Curry by The Athletic's Sam Amick as the Warriors' star was leaving Chase Center after the series-clinching win.

"He's said a lot of crazy things," Curry told Amick. "He called himself a dynasty already, so you've got to figure. On to the next round. Western Conference finals, we're back. Let's goooo!"

The "dynasty" comment Curry is referring to came in late March after the Grizzlies beat the Warriors by 28 at FedExForum. When Brooks was speaking to the media after the regular-season game, he brought up Warriors forward Andre Iguodala, who was traded to Memphis following the 2019 season but never played for the upstart Grizzlies. He was eventually traded to Miami where he helped the Heat get to the 2020 NBA Finals in the bubble in Orlando, Fla.

"We all had the vision," Brooks told reporters back in March. "He didn't, which is perfect. Send him back to the Warriors and let him do his thing over there."

Memphis ended up securing the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference with a 56-26 record. They looked poised to make a deep run in the playoffs, only to be thwarted by the No. 3-seeded Warriors.

But back in March, Brooks was feeling pretty confident about what the Grizzlies were accomplishing.

"From the beginning, we were growing a base, we had a base and we kept building and building and building and more guys got on the train and we were able to create something like this and keep building this dynasty and this program up to new heights," Brooks said later in his press conference in March. "Just an amazing feeling to see guys grow every single year. I've been here the longest so I'm just happy to see each player grow in their role and to try to exceed their role, which is amazing to see. I'm just happy I'm a part of this and happy I figured out how to stay here in Memphis."

In the end, the Warriors didn't even need Iguodala to knock the Grizzlies out of the playoffs. The veteran forward missed the entire series due to a neck injury.

And Brooks didn't help himself in the series as he was ejected three minutes into Game 2 for a Flagrant Foul Penalty 2 on Gary Payton II, who suffered a fractured left elbow and ligament damage on the play. The NBA suspended Brooks for Game 3 at Chase Center. Warriors coach Steve Kerr called the play "dirty" and said Brooks "broke the code" by hitting Payton was he was in the air going in for a layup.

In Game 6, Brooks was assessed a Flagrant Foul Penalty 1 for shoving Curry to the ground. When Klay Thompson got in Brooks' face, both players were given Technical Fouls.

Curry got the last laugh against Brooks and the Grizzlies as he scored 11 of his 29 points in the fourth quarter Saturday night to help the Warriors close out the series.

Curry, Iguodala, Thompson and Draymond Green might be older than the Grizzlies' young nucleus, but they still had enough to dispatch a team some thought could get to the NBA Finals this season.

Families hit the lake for the 51st Clyde West Fishing Derby - WEEK

PEORIA (WEEK) - For the 51st year, the Peoria Park District invited families to get out, enjoy the fresh air and catch some fish.

It was the 51st annual Clyde West Fishing Derby at Glen Oak Park, named after a former Park District trustee who started the derby to spread their love of fishing.

More than 1200 pounds of fish were dumped into the lake for people of all ages to catch, and organizers say more than 500 people showed up to get in on the action and meet some new friends along the way.

“This is an event that also brings strangers together. People that live in the same neighborhood, I’ve heard some comments throughout the morning saying, ‘Hey, I’ve seen you down the street and never caught your name!’ and it just really brings everybody together,” said Jocelyn McDowell of the Peoria Park District.

There were prizes given out to kids who caught their first-ever fish, plus, a special prize was awarded to the fisherman or woman who could snag an albino fish out of the lake.
