LAS VEGAS — Eyebrow-raising testimony, abrupt changes of plans, courtroom delays. If there is one thing NBA Commissioner Adam Silver has learned during the Donald Sterling saga, it's that there are no guarantees.

So when Silver was asked Tuesday if he could say Sterling would not own the Los Angeles Clippers by the time next season comes around, he replied he could not.

"It's very difficult to say anything with certainty in a situation like this," Sterling told reporters after the Board of Governors' meeting. "I can say with certainty we are doing everything in our power to move Donald out as an owner in the NBA."

Sterling, who was banned by the NBA for life for making racist remarks, is challenging his wife Shelly's planned sale of the Clippers for $2 billion to Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer in court. A judge recently delayed the next hearing until July 21 and closing arguments are scheduled for July 28.

HOYLAKE, England — If the world ranking looks just like this in two years, Adam Scott would be headed to Rio for the Olympics as the No. 1 player in the world and so would Roope Kakko of Finland at No. 287.

The ranking is certain to change next week, let alone two years from now.

But starting this week, the International Golf Federation will be publishing a weekly "Olympic ranking" to show movement as players try to make the team. The 60-player field for men and women will be based entirely on the world ranking, with the cutoff on July 11, 2016.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — It's been almost two decades since Morgan Shepherd last ran a full Sprint Cup season and his last national series victory was in 1993.

He can still probably wheel a race car better than you and most of your friends. That doesn't mean the 72-year-old should be racing against the very best drivers in NASCAR.

Shepherd drew scrutiny Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway when he caused Joey Logano to crash.

RIO DE JANEIRO — The World Cup title for Joachim Loew and his "golden generation" crowned a process that was 10 years in the making. With a talented crop of new players coming through, the future looks bright for Germany.

The 1-0 victory over Argentina at the Maracana that gave Germany its fourth title and made it the first European team to win the championship on South American soil completed a circle for Loew that began in 2004, when he became Juergen Klinsmann's assistant.

The two friends began plotting how to bring the title back to Germany and rejuvenated the team, creating an attacking, entertaining style that pleased the eye and promised success.
