Shams Charania released a nugget on Stadium over the weekend that did not please Jimmy Butler’s agent.

“I think that everyone who knows Jimmy Butler understands that this is someone who wears his heart on their sleeve. He’s not afraid to let people know how he feels,” Charania said on Stadium last week. 

“This Miami team goes to the finals last year in the bubble. So that adds expectations for Jimmy Butler and how he feels this franchise should go. I’m told there has been very, very testy moments behind the scenes between Jimmy, that coaching staff, the roster at different points.”

Charania did say the team is ascending at the right time, but that wasn’t enough cleanup for Butler’s agent. Bernard Lee of Quartexx Management had this to say about Charania.

“Shut the f*ck up you click bait, ambulance chasing, dirtbag piece of sh*t,” Lee tweeted in response to the clip. “No one has told you this because this is not reality. Go find someone’s assistant to text abt an MRI or some other human calamity you want to be 1st on. We are good over here.”

Charania is one of the most plugged reporters in the league and someone who has garnered immense respect. Yet all that gravitas wasn’t enough for Lee to let it slide. One of Charania’s colleagues on the set tried to distance himself from the report.

“I just wanna say I agree with everything Shams said but I didn’t know we was snitching on the man,” Former NBA guard Iman Shumpert said on the playoff preview show. 

“For whatever static they got going in Miami, I didn’t know we was snitchin. Shams don’t usually get down like that, but it just happened I didn’t know we were doing it. I agree with him though, what’s going on basketball-wise.”

Stugotz: ‘Sean McDonough Hates The Aaron Judge Cut-Ins’

“If you look at the numbers, if you look at the interest, if you look at the revenue that it generates for the networks, it makes more sense to have an Aaron Judge at-bat interrupted by an Iowa State field goal attempt than it does the other way around.”

College football fans are not being shy with how they feel about Aaron Judge. Whether it is private conversations or social media posts, people are making their disdain for the cut-ins to college football games on ESPN networks when the Yankee slugger comes to bat known. On Monday morning, Stugotz added that it isn’t just fans that are unhappy.

The Dan Le Batard Show discussed the second straight week of cut-ins on Monday morning. Stugotz pointed out that one of ESPN’s primary college football voices sounds just as annoyed as fans are.

“Sean McDonough hates the toss to Aaron Judge,” he said. Hates it!”

Last week, ESPN and ABC cut into games when Judge was sitting on 60 home runs. This week, he was sitting on 61. A 62nd home run would be the most in American League history.

Stugotz added that has to be part of McDonough’s frustration.

“In his defense, what are we cutting in for? I have no idea if [Aaron Judge] is breaking a record, what record he’s breaking, if he’s clean. I have no idea!”

Producer Mike Ryan Ruiz said the fact that Judge is yet to deliver is making the cut-ins more frustrating for fans.

“I think what hurts the whole thing is that Aaron Judge has been terrible during these cut-ins,” Ruiz said. “He’s been God awful during these cut-ins. I haven’t seen a single home runs during one of these cut-ins. There was genuine fury at a watch party I was at. Fury! At Aaron Judge.”

A popular criticism of ESPN has been that this kind of attention would not be paid to Aaron Judge if he was chasing a mark that wasn’t the home run record if he played anywhere other than New York. According to Ryan, the mistake is bigger than that. Why would regular season baseball ever interrupt college football?

“If you look at the numbers, if you look at the interest, if you look at the revenue that it generates for the networks, it makes more sense to have an Aaron Judge at-bat interrupted by an Iowa State field goal attempt than it does the other way around.”

There are four games left in Major League Baseball’s regular season. You can bet college football fans will make plenty of signs for College GameDay if Judge cannot hit number 62 before the playoffs start.

However, after surgeries and treatments, Bradshaw said he is now cancer free.

The Pro Football Hall of Famer said he was diagnosed with bladder cancer in November of last year and surgery and treatments removed the cancer. Then, in March of this year, a tumor was found on the left-side of his neck. Bradshaw called it a “Merkel cell tumor”, which he had removed.

Bradshaw’s candor comes after struggling through a sentence during the September 25th edition of the show, in which Howie Long helped finish his sentence.
