Cavallari doesn't want Cam to play football

Don't look for baby Cutler (or the Cutlet as "The League" so aptly deemed him) to be suiting up in football pads in a few years.

Kristin Cavallari, fianc of Bears quarterback Jay Cutler and mother to his son Camden, said she doesn't want the five-month-old to play football when he grows up.

"I will try to steer Cam in a different direction, maybe a sport that isn't so aggressive," Cavallari told DNAinfo.com Monday. "Maybe baseball -- something where he doesn't have to get hit."

This seems to be a popular opinion of late, as President Barack Obama said Sunday that if he had a son, he would have to think twice about letting him play football due to its violence.

Cavallari has admitted that Cam already takes after his dad, so she might not be able to deter him when the time comes.

"At the end of the day, I think if he wants to play football, I don't know if I'm gonna have too much control over it," she said. "You know, how can your dad be a football player and you tell them that they can't do it?"

That being said, if Cam does decide to go into baseball, maybe taking after his dad will come in handy there. Cutler's rocket arm and natural athletic ability could translate well into quite a pitcher.

The Chicago chapter of the Professional Hockey Writers Association has selected Marian Hossa to be the Blackhawks' nominee for the 2017 Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy, which recognizes perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey.

The 38-year-old winger has bounced back in a huge way following a 2015-16 campaign where he had only 13 goals and 20 assists in 64 games. 

Hossa is tied for second on the team with 24 goals and ranks sixth on the club with 42 points in 66 contests this season. He ranks fourth among active players with 1,131 points, and recently surpassed Pat Verbeek to move into 35th all-time in goals scored with 523.

Former Bulls center Joakim Noah suspended 20 games for violating NBA's anti-drug policy

The NBA announced Saturday that it has suspended former Bulls and current Knicks center Joakim Noah for 20 games without pay for violating the league's anti-drug policy.

He tested positive for an over-the-counter supplement called selective androgen receptor modulator LGD-4033, which is prohibited under the current collective bargaining agreement but would not have been under the new CBA starting next year, according to ESPN's Marc Spears.

It was announced in February that Noah would miss the remainder of the season with a left knee injury. His suspension will carry over into the 2017-18 campaign with only 10 games left this year.

Noah averaged 5.0 points per game and 8.8 rebounds per game in 46 games in his first of a four-year, $72 million contract with the Knicks.
