October 17, 2018 11:04 PM Welcome to the season of Kawhi Leonard

Kawhi Leonard looks like an apex predator, because he is one. His shoulders are almost comically broad, in both the amusing and comic-book sense; he has a low centre of gravity and that seven-foot-three wingspan, with arms that stretch to the swooping death of those giant, quick, enveloping hands. Later, you see the quick feet, the skill, and the blank-faced 7

October 17, 2018 8:08 PM Canelo Alvarez inks $365M deal with streaming service DAZN

Golden Boy Promotions said Wednesday that Alvarez’s deal will be the richest athlete contract in sports history. Alvarez (50-1-2, 34 KOs) is coming off a victory over Gennady Golovkin in a middleweight showdown in September. That fight, like most of boxing’s biggest, was shown on pay-per-view. It cost $84.95 to be seen in high definition. Now fans can pay significantly 7

October 15, 2018 10:43 PM No deal for Raptors’ Wright by contract extension deadline

It was not a surprising move. Wright is seen as a viable part of the team’s future but not having long-term money tied up leaves the luxury-tax-paying franchise with some measure of flexibility next summer. They retain the right to match any offer Wright gets in July, so it’s not as if they are cutting him totally adrift after the season that begins 6

October 15, 2018 9:34 PM Kings’ Doughty calls Leafs the real deal — but never wanted to play here

The Leafs’ primary measuring stick — after the score, of course — is high-end chances for and against, tracked by the research and development team led by Darryl Metcalf. The stats are largely proprietary and not available publicly unless they feel like sharing. After Saturday night’s 4-2 win in Washington, though, coach Mike Babcock said the Leafs had 12 high-end 8

October 10, 2018 6:05 PM Skills aren’t all that matter to Raptors coach Nick Nurse

There have been a few times over the course of the pre-season when Nick Nurse has talked about the kind of personalities he likes to have on his roster, putting aside for a moment the ability to shoot, defend or handle the basketball. The Toronto Raptors head coach talks about positive attitudes, smiles, pleasant demeanours for the most part. And given 10

October 9, 2018 11:42 PM One of oldest U.S. coal companies files for bankruptcy as fuel demand drops

The restructuring agreement, which must be approved by a judge, includes refinancing an outstanding loan and a “business transformation” meant to significantly increase cash flow, the company statement said, without providing details. The group of lenders that holds a majority of Westmoreland’s debt also plans to bid for the company’s assets, the statement 10

October 7, 2018 9:32 PM Lowering the boom on era of NFL nicknames

But because Legion of Boom was the last true vestige of a bygone era, when virtually every NFL team had at least one position group with a cartoonish nickname. (Maybe there are a few others sprinkled throughout the league, but none with Seattle’s renown.) The Fearsome Foursome. The Steel Curtain. The Orange Crush. The Purple People Eaters. The Smurfs 14

BOSTON—Gary Sanchez homered twice, Aaron Judge also hit a tape-measure shot and Masahiro Tanaka pitched the New York Yankees past the Red Sox 6-2 on Saturday night to tie their AL Division Series at one game apiece. Home runs by Judge and Sanchez helped chase David Price after only five outs. Sanchez’s second homer padded the lead, a three-run shot that was projected 8

October 5, 2018 9:23 PM Tavares’ past might shed light on Maple Leafs’ future

Nylander’s camp and the Leafs have been talking for months and reportedly remain $1 million per season apart on a multi-year deal, with the Leafs digging in at somewhere between $6 million and $7 million a year. The 22-year-old winger is coming off back-to-back 61-point seasons. Tavares agreed to his long-term contract with the Isles right after his three-year 6
