  • And that’s only one of their many problems: Blake Griffin’s latest injury may end his career. Eli to Tom Gores: Sell the team!

  • Ypsilanti, Michigan high school hoops superstar Emoni Bates has landed on the COVER of S.I. — at age 15! Too much, too soon?
  • Eli strikes out on the meaning of “load management” in sports. Oh, you too? You likely won’t be happy to learn what it is.
