Tom Telesco: “I guess we’ll see” if Joey Bosa reports to camp

After the Chargers picked defensive end Joey Bosa with the third overall pick of this years draft, they said they had their eye on him throughout the entire pre-draft process and knew that he was they guy they would take once it was known quarterbacks would be the first two picks. That was easy, but

Danny Woodhead feels “great” after offseason injury scare

Chargers running back Danny Woodhead doesnt go down easily, and doesnt usually stay down long. But when a teammate rolled into his ankle in June, the 31-year-old was worried it was similar to the season-ending injury he suffered in Buffalo in 2014, so he might have been entitled to milk it for a little extra

Carmelo Anthony is raising his on-court profanity game to new heights for Team USA

King Kong ain't got shit on Melo going up for a rebound! In part 1 of this latest incarnation of "The Phil Files", Phil Jackson compared Carmelo Anthony's leadership style to understated, lead-by-example legends like Willis Reed and Lou Amundson: "Carmelo isn't going to yell or throw chairs. His style is much more subtle." Oh yeah, Phil? Well if Melo's leadership style doesn't involve yelling, then how do you explain this first-quarter possession in Team USA's big win over China?

Carmelo Anthony scored 17 points in Team USA's win over Argentina

Olympic Melo: still good. Olympic Melo is back! Team USA began its slate of tune-up games leading up to the Rio Olympics on Friday with a 111-74 stomping of Argentina, and Carmelo Anthony fit right back into the three-bombing role he filled so well for the 2012 squad, splashing 5 of his 8 attempts from beyond the arc en route to a 17-point performance. He was the third-leading scorer for the U.S. behind Kevin Durant (23 points) and Paul George (18 points). Personally, I like to think Melo took particular delight in destroying an Argentinian team that failed to call up his old friend Pablo...
