The Los Angeles Clippers have issued a statement from Blake Griffin that he is pulling out of Team USA duties this summer.
Griffin is one of the most dedicated players in the league, and the fact that the Clippers have yet to make a significant run in the playoffs has really gotten the attention of the team's power forward. With Team USA duties out of the way he can now give 100 percent to his improvement as he matures into a star in the league. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
MLB/MLBPA panel is deadlocked over whether Josh Hamilton should be sent to rehab.
Hamilton's fate rested in the hands of four people, and the votes were split on whether or not to send the former All-Star to rehab. Hamilton was known to have failed at least six drug tests as a minor leaguer and was suspended from baseball from 2004 to 2006. He is in the third year of a five-year, $125 million deal and the Angels are hoping that he is on the field. He has been a bust since inking this contract and he is worth no more than a last round draft pick, especially with this relapse news. Analysis: Colby Conway
