The NFL has been criticized for its handling of the Ray Rice case ever since it handed a two-game suspension to Rice for an offseason arrest for domestic violence. This week the outcry has grown exponentially, as video of Rice striking his then-fiancee emerged, Rice was released by the Baltimore Ravens and suspended indefinitely by the NFL, and questions began swirling as to whether the league had seen or should have seen the video. Then on Wednesday came a potentially damning report, as a law enforcement official told the Associated Press that he sent the video to the NFL in April.
Commissioner Roger Goodell's future now is in doubt. Is his position no longer tenable?
Finding a good roommate is a bit like going into a draft without having seen any video or done any research. You might get someone who conveniently forgets to pay the rent, or leaves dirty dishes in the sink, or decides to practice entire symphonies on the glockenspiel at 3 a.m. Luckily for Michael Vandevoort, his former roommate Doug McDermott left on seemingly good terms after getting taken by the Chicago Bulls on draft night.
The only problem? McDermott left all of his clothes in the closet. Vandevoort decided that the best way to get rid of an entire wardrobe tailored for a 6-foot-8 small forward was to sell it off, piece by piece:
Proceeds of the sale will go to support the NorthStar youth basketball program. Before you ask: Vandevoort's mini-garage sale announcement was retweeted by McDermott, so we don't think he's too broken up about having to spend some of his NBA rookie contract money on a suit or two.

This isn't the first time we've seen a story like this, but it's always worth noting how much a gesture of compassion can mean to people.
Nick Young is not going to stop being Nick Young.
Already this summer the Los Angeles Lakers guard -- who in July signed a four-year, $21.5 million deal to remain in his native Southern California -- has attended the MTV Video Music Awards with girlfriend Iggy Azalea, offered to be Lakers coach, drove a Zamboni during the Kings' Stanley Cup run, and threw out a hilariously bad first pitch at a Dodgers game.
Recently while in New York City -- where he attended Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week with J.R. Smith -- Swaggy P just couldn't help himself. When driving by a local court, Young simply had to get in on the action:

We've said it before and we'll say it again: May Swaggy never stop.
