    Last year, the entire NBA season was plagued due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the league made immense efforts to conduct the last portion of the season in the Orlando Bubble. It appears that the league might have to take the same steps this season. As recently due to the rise in the number of cases, the Miami Heat vs the Boston Celtics game was postponed. Along with the Heat and the Celtics’ matchup, fans won’t witness a potential duo between the Mavericks-Pelicans either. With the two games being postponed, league executives will conduct a meeting regarding the same. Until a concrete decision comes out of the meeting, the Miami Heat have their own problems to deal with. The primary reason responsible for the games being postponed in the increase in number positive cases. According to NBA insider Tim Reynolds, the Heat might have to enter the court...
    The wounds from the Giants’ ugly showing Sunday only gaped deeper after the Washington Football Team bumped them from first place in the NFC East with a defensively-fueled 23-15 win over San Francisco. No. 2 overall pick Chase Young scooped up a strip-sack fumble for a 47-yard touchdown in the second quarter and Kamren Curl added a 76-yard interception return in the third in Washington’s fourth straight win to improve to 6-7, one game ahead of the Giants with three games remaining. The victory may have been costly for Washington, however, as veteran quarterback Alex Smith injured his right leg late in the second quarter — the same leg that kept him out of the NFL for nearly two years before he returned to the lineup in October. Dwayne Haskins, Washington’s 2019 first-round pick, played the final two quarters for Ron Rivera’s surging team, which faces Seattle at home next...

    The actor reprised his role as the president on the Season 46 premiere of the NBC late-night comedy series. Alec Baldwin said he would not have impersonated Donald Trump on the Saturday Night Live season 46 premiere if it had been suggested that the U.S. President was gravely ill from COVID-19. In the cold open to the NBC late-night comedy series featured a “rebroadcast” of Trump’s debate against Joe Biden, and it included a subtle joke about the president’s future as a coronavirus patient. Baldwin reprised his Emmy-winning role as the Trump, while Jim Carrey appeared as Biden. But some viewers thought the sketch was in bad form given the real-life president’s hospitalization for the potentially deadly virus. In a rambling new video posted to Instagram on Sunday, Baldwin explained why he felt it was okay to portray – and poke fun at — Trump while he is sick. Baldwin...
    CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta reporter that President Donald Trump was “having trouble breathing” even as White House physician Dr. Sean Conley was reporting Trump was “doing very well” and being treated with Remdesivir. On Friday night, hours after Marine One airlifted Trump to Walter Reed, Acosta delivered a report from the White House in which he painted a very harrowing picture of Trump’s condition, and told anchor Anderson Cooper that the official line on the president’s health is “a lot of wishful thinking.” “I talked to a Trump campaign advisor just a short while ago who said that this is serious,” Acosta said. “That the president has been having some trouble breathing, that he’s been very fatigued today, very tired, and emphasized that this is not just a run of the mill trip up to Walter Reed, that this is a serious situation.” “Talked to another source...

    LAKE BUENA VISTA (AP) — Having the NBA’s best record during the regular season shows the obvious potential of the Milwaukee Bucks. It also means they haven’t dealt with major on-court adversity often. They are now, facing a pivotal Game 3 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series against the rolling Miami Heat on Friday night. The top-seeded Bucks have dropped the first two games to the fifth-seeded Heat, marking just the fifth time this season that they’ve had a multi-game losing streak. “We’ve said it many times,” Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer said. “I think your character really comes through when you face adversity, when you’re tested. I think the character of this group is off the charts.” They are being tested now, so that theory better ring true for Milwaukee — or else. The ending of Game 2 was bizarre, a close call looking like it would take a win...

    In response to the poor poll, Vice President Mike Pence told reporters, "The only poll that I put stock in is the one that's going to take place on Nov. 3." That is usually not something winning candidates say. Here are the 10 worst numbers for Trump from the survey: Trump is losing Biden by 15% The poll found Biden's lead over Trump is growing. Biden now leads Trump 52% to 37%, according to the poll. That's a 3-point bump for Biden and a 4-point loss for Trump since Quinnipiac last polled the race in mid-June. Biden achieving a majority of the vote as Trump falls below 40% is a troubling sign for Trump. Biden now leads with white voters White voters were Trump's best constituency in 2016, when he carried the demographic 57% to 37% over Hillary Clinton, according to exit poll data. But the Quinnipiac poll found Trump is...
    Not long after Ivanka Trump’s controversial endorsement of Goya Foods, experts are sounding the alarm about the “serious legal trouble” that the first daughter has thrown herself into, Raw Story reported. According to government ethics expert Walter Shaub, Ivanka Trump’s tweet is a clear violation of federal law. “Ms. Trump’s Goya tweet is clearly a violation of the government’s misuse of position regulation, 5 C.F.R. § 2635.702. Ms. Trump has had ethics training. She knows better. But she did it anyway because no one in this administration cares about government ethics.” Shaub noted that Ivanka Trump touted the Goya product on social media after the company’s CEO, Robert Unanue, praised her father, U.S. President Donald Trump. Not only that, Schaub noted that the praise came after Unanue faced a backlash for his recognition of the president. Together, Schaub claimed that these actions “create the appearance of official sanction.” Schaub also...
    Getty Eddie Jackson and Kyle Fuller are both All-Pros. And if the salary cap is reduced in 2021, the Chicago Bears may not be able to keep both. The Chicago Bears have gone 20-12 over the last two seasons after going 8-24 in 2016-17, but the team and its fans could be in for a major letdown moving forward. Despite not having a season below .500 in the last two years, The Ringer’s Robert Mays (who also happens to be a Bears fan) broke down Chicago’s recent “rut,” and he came to the conclusion that the Bears are on the brink of collapse — again. Mays thinks Chicago’s 2020 season, even if it goes as well as possible, won’t lead to a ring. For the Bears, he says, the “best-case scenario season likely doesn’t end with a Super Bowl win, and a worst-case scenario season means another year...
