Cleveland rookie David Bell could be on the fast track to starting – Key Takeaways from Browns rookie minicamp

With news breaking that former Cleveland receiver Jarvis Landry would be signing with the New Orleans Saints over the weekend, there was some speculation on who would take over for the Browns. Well, based on how former Purdue wideout David Bell has looked on and off the field, the guesswork may not last much longer. Read more.

Who could the Cleveland Cavaliers target with the no. 14 pick in the 2022 NBA Draft after the Draft Lottery?

At this point, Cleveland could be looking for a player who can make an immediate impact instead of a prospect who needs time to develop since they were only a few wins away from making the playoffs. But, due to their strong roster, they could afford to take a developmental piece as well. Thankfully, there are some options out there that make sense for the Cavaliers on both ends of the spectrum.

Cavaliers draft options and injury recovery, Watson's future and more – Right Down Euclid Mailbag

Now, I still think "winning plays" is a factor when breaking down this year's draft – even if it doesn't involve drafting a player. Sure, Cleveland could draft a player that fits the bill, and sources say that there's intrigue within the organization around Ohio State's Malaki Branham, LSU's Tari Eason as well as G League Ignite product Dyson Daniels and Kansas forward Ochai Agbaji. But, don't rule out the Cavaliers drafting a player for another team in a trade either. Read more.

Jeremy Clarkson on growing old and his fear of death

By Jeremy Clarkson via The Sunday Times

When we know the end is coming, that hope is replaced by despair and somehow that’s always easier. Maybe that’s why people on their death beds are so calm. Or maybe it’s the opiates. We don’t know the answer to that one either. Read more.

‘Sonny day:’ 2022 Kentucky Derby-winning jockey Sonny Leon was an underdog, but also Northeast Ohio racing community favorite

By Ashley Bastock via

Leon isn’t perceived as a troublemaker, but he is aggressive. In a sport with strict rules, sometimes that aggressiveness can lead to suspensions. He’s had five since last fall and currently, Leon is serving out a four-day suspension handed down by Ohio racing stewards for careless riding during the third race on April 27 at Thistledown. They determined he “deliberately and aggressively” steered One Glamorous Gal toward the rail to block other horses in the stretch. His suspension ends Thursday. Sometimes that aggressiveness leads to suspensions. Other times it leads to one of the biggest underdog victories in the history of the sport. Read more.

Is Chet Holmgren the Next Unicorn?

By J. Kyle Mann via The Ringer

Chet Holmgren, though, is rousing that feeling of disbelief again. He’s a broadly skilled, towering oddity—a shot-blocking chanticleer. He’s on the radar for the top pick in the 2022 NBA draft, but is that deserved, given the challenges presented by his rail-thin frame? Is he destined to join the exclusive unicorn herd, or is he just another example of fashion over function? Read more.
