Philadelphia 76ers veteran Amir Johnson wants to leave the past in the past after getting caught using a cell phone on the bench during a Game 1 loss to the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday.

"I really want to sweep it under the rug and that's that," Johnson said, according to ESPN's Dave McMenamin. "I apologized to my teammates and the organization and I hate that there was so much attention on the cellphone.

"We're focused on Game 2. Like I said, this situation, you just kind of want to move it to the side. There's so many media outlets and situations about that cellphone and I hate that it ever happened."

Sweep! NHL-best Lightning ousted in record speed by Columbus

Sweep! NHL-best Lightning ousted in record speed by Columbus COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Tampa Bay Lightning ended up on the wrong side of NHL history, getting swept in the first round of the playoffs after one of the best regular seasons ever. The Columbus Blue Jackets capped a stunning sweep of the Presidents Trophy winners with a 7-3 victory Tuesday night. Tampa Bay became the first team in the expansion era, which began in 1967-68, to go winless in the first round of the playoffs after leading the league in points during the regular season. And what a season it was. Tampa Bay tied the NHL record for wins with 62 and amassed 128 points, fourth in NHL history.

The 76ers fined Johnson for conduct detrimental to the team, which appears to be the only punishment the 31-year-old forward will receive.

"He addressed the team before the day began. And in my mind, there's not much more that can be done," head coach Brett Brown said. "We all understand there is zero place for that in our league or our organization. It's not the look, it's not the professionalism that we or he represents.

"Amir is a good person. People that know Amir know this. And so a mistake was made. We owned it, he owned it, we made a statement, and we move on. And I really mean that. We move on."

Following Philadelphia's 111-102 loss at the Wells Fargo Center, All-Star center Joel Embiid told reporters that Johnson had his phone so he could check on his sick daughter. Johnson said Sunday that his daughter is "fine," and neither he nor the team have confirmed why the phone was used.

Calgary NDP candidate apologizes for sharing meme about jihad, the Crusades.
The NDP's election candidate for the riding of Calgary-Peigan issued an apology on Saturday afternoon after a social media post he shared about jihad and the Crusades was leaked to the media. Screenshots of the meme suggest Joe Pimlott shared the images on Dec. 27, 2011 and July 1, 2012. It shows what appears to be a knight with a cross emblazoned on his chest armour and reads, "I'll see your jihad and I'll raise you one crusade." The Crusades refers to religious battles between Christians and Muslims that were fought between the 11th and 13th centuries.
