Arizona Cardinals in London as business travelers, not tourists

LONDON – If Cardinals coach Bruce Arians has his way – and he usually does – his players will learn and see very little of London after spending a week here. The Cardinals are here to play the Rams on Sunday, not to write reviews of London attractions …

Suns’ Earl Watson wants high school, one-and-done players to go to G-League

On Monday NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said he wants to do away with the “one-and-done” rule and again allow high school players to jump directly to the NBA. The belief is that if elite players go to the NBA straight from high school, then shoe companies won’t be so quick to offer financial inducements

Phoenix Suns: 5 goals as the season begins on Wednesday

Ask the Suns what goals they have for this season.  The victory total never comes up. Phoenix knows how far it has to go on the NBA evolutionary scale. That’s why coach Earl Watson constantly talks about growth rather than victories, and, on media day, General Manager Ryan McDonough said, “Obviously

Arizona Cardinals’ Adrian Peterson gives team life entering critical stretch

LONDON – The timing of the Cardinals’ first offensive outburst of the season was not impeccable. Game 1, not 6, would have been an ideal time to show you could run and pass the football efficiently. But better six weeks late than never, and the Cardinals hope the after-market part they picked up

Phoenix Suns’ Eric Bledsoe matures, grows into a positive force

When the Suns held their annual media day late last month an odd thing happened. Eric Bledsoe stepped up to the podium, positioned himself behind the microphone and talked. And talked. And talked. And talked. It wasn’t a monologue by any means. The question-and-answer session lasted less than 10

NBA power rankings: Phoenix Suns open 2017 season with much to prove

The Phoenix Suns open their season Wednesday night and once again, a lot of questions surround the young team. Will they be better than they were in 2016? If so, by how much? Take a look at what NBA writers and publications are saying about the Suns entering the 2017 season. Editor’s note: Click

What happened to the Cardinals lead? Defense says Buccaneers’ comeback not concerning

There is a certain code word you can text at University of Phoenix Stadium to report on wildly rowdy and unruly fans. Once you press send, security is on its way to calm nerves and settle the situation. There’s no such magical code for fans to text, however, after they see their football team almost

Next change for Cardinals could come at cornerback

The Cardinals made four changes in the starting offense unit for Sunday’s game against the Buccaneers, and the next shake-up might come on defense. Left tackle D.J. Humphries and left guard Alex Boone returned from injuries and started. Earl Watford replaced Evan Boehm at right guard, and running

Adrian Peterson might solve one Cardinals problem, but there are several others

When it’s played well, football is a game of pieces that snugly interlock. The defense sets up the offense with turnovers and stops on third down. Special teams flip field position. And the offense functions efficiently enough that the other two phases aren’t under constant pressure. When it&

Bickley: Suns need to show progress for Phoenix fans to stick with ‘The Timeline’

The NBA season begins with a frown and a foregone conclusion. Michael Jordan said 28 teams are garbage. Warriors star Draymond Green said the rest of the league “knows they don’t stand a chance.” And here in Phoenix, one of the NBA’s greatest success stories has been reduced to a small team chasing

Phoenix Suns guard Tyler Ulis finishes preseason with strong showing

Point guard Tyler Ulis, who has struggled much of the preseason, had 11 points, three rebounds and three assists in the Suns’ 114-93 victory Friday over the Brisbane Bullets. Coach Earl Watson said Ulis, who was 5 for 9 from the field after going just 9 for 32 in Phoenix’s first four preseason
