James is one:

    Getty Luka Doncic (left) and James Harden. On the Bayclays Center court, it was a fierce competition between two of the game’s best point guards. But after the Dallas Mavericks defeated the Brooklyn Nets 115-98 on Saturday night, the scene at the podium was more like a gush-fest, with game recognizing game between James Harden and Luke Doncic. In fact, Doncic was so blown away by Harden’s praise of him that he was left nearly speechless.Harden Throws Heaps of Praise at LukaWith All-Stars Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving both sidelined due to injury, the Nets ran entirely through Harden on Saturday. The Beard finished with 29 points (on 9-of-21 shooting), seven rebounds, six assists and six turnovers. And even though Kristaps Porzingis returned from a three-game injury absence for the Mavs, that did nothing to steal the spotlight from Doncic, who finished with a similar stat line as Harden:...

    If there is one showdown that has gone down as one of the most epic in the league’s history, it is the 2013 NBA Finals with the San Antonio Spurs vs the Miami Heat. LeBron James playing one of the best games of his career and pushing the series to a Game 7 led the Miami Heat to their second straight title. Let’s not forget Ray Allen’s contribution to Game 6, which led the match to overtime. If it wasn’t for that clutch corner three-pointer and his final two free throws, the Spurs would have been the champions that year. LeBron James is grateful to Ray Allen That night, LeBron had dropped most of the points in the fourth quarter itself. However, he rimmed one of the three-pointers and it was Chris Bosh who grabbed that rebound. Seeing Ray Allen backing into the corner, he passed the ball to the...

    The amount of success that Kyrie Irving achieved during his time with the Cleveland Cavaliers was immeasurable. His partnership with LeBron James on the court, along with Kevin Love, helped the Cavs bring in their first NBA Championship. Getting a title for Cleveland was one of LeBron’s dreams. And it was seeing Kyrie play for them that he convinced himself to come back from Miami Heat. However, there is one person who has seen Kyrie’s growth. That is the then Assistant Coach for the Cavs, Phil Handy. How did Phil Handy end up with the Cavs? Handy has enjoyed the privilege to have coached a number of NBA greats, and Kyrie Irving is one of them. So, in an interview with Handy, he told James Posey his take on the now Nets, star. “I mean, that dude is probably the most naturally gifted dude I’ve ever been around. P, you’ve...
    ABC Contestants on season 25 of The Bachelor. Matt James finally addressed the rampant bullying that has cast a dark cloud over season 25 of The Bachelor, sending home both Anna Redman and Victoria Larson in episode five. Another contestant, Kit Keenan, made it through the night and even got a one-on-one date, despite being portrayed in a few episodes as part of the problem. In an episode of Bachelor Happy Hour, Keenan expressed regret for some of her actions on the show, but also defended herself. According to Keenan, gender bias is to blame for some of the backlash that she’s received. “I think that a lot of the criticism that I have gotten is very gendered and I don’t like that,” Keenan said. “I think if a man had said some of the more aggressive things that I said on screen, he would be applauded for...
    The Los Angeles Lakers and Philadelphia 76ers’ matchup was a much-awaited one, and it did not disappoint. Both these teams were at the top of their respective conferences, but after the loss, the Lakers have slid down to the second position. Despite losing, LeBron James had another phenomenal night against the Sixers, but he just wasn’t enough to slow them down. However, a former NBA player is still very impressed by the superstar. LeBron James continues to impress Robert Horry can’t digest what James has already accomplished in the season so far. On SiriusXM Radio, he stated, “For him to still play at a high level, not missing a game and don’t want to miss a game.” He explained how in his last year, he would not play games he didn’t want. “For him to take care of his body, and know that he has a responsibility not just to...

Not just day-to-day, though you can certainly expect that from LeBron James, but year-to-year. He is the rare timeless athlete, one of the few constants in my life — in anyone’s life. Eighteen years. LeBron’s career is old enough to be my drinking buddy, and it pretty much is.  Memories are unreliable, frustrating narrators, but I remember moments involving him with perfect clarity.

    Former Bond girl Valerie Leon has insisted No Time To Die should not be streamed online after the film was delayed yet again by another six months. The upcoming James Bond blockbuster was previously slated to be released on April 2 after already being hit by several changes due to the coronavirus pandemic. Speaking on Good Morning Britain, Valerie, 77, took part in a debate on whether the film should be streamed and insisted cinemas will 'die' without major films.  She said: 'I disagree totally that they should be streamed. The franchise is so special, so special. The anticipation of waiting for it to be released in the cinemas.'  Speaking on the official James Bond podcast, she said: 'It's a culmination of everything that his portrayal of the character has been through and it ties up all the storylines. It's a pretty epic film, I have to say.'  After pushing...
    New York Yankees: James Paxton is reportedly on the Blue Jays’ radar By: Andres Chavez January 22, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe New York Yankees lost three members of their 2020 starting rotation to free agency: James Paxton, Masahiro Tanaka, and J.A. Happ. The latter signed with the Minnesota Twins this week, while the other two remain unsigned. The Yankees brought Corey Kluber on a one-year, $11 million deal, but there is still work to be done to shore up the rotation. After Gerrit Cole, there is just too much uncertainty and inexperience. Jordan Montgomery, Domingo German, Deivi Garcia, and Clarke Schmidt form a very good group, and Luis Severino will be healthy, presumably, by the All-Star break. But there is still a feeling that they are one arm short. This is a problem because the Tampa Bay Rays are very good, even after...
    Better than last season, but not good enough is the status of the Golden State Warriors so far in the 2020-21 campaign. After having a hectic offseason making sure that they had the best roster to fill in for Klay Thompson‘s absence, the Warriors are still struggling to make their way up in the West. The biggest question entering this season was their newly drafted James Wiseman. Has he lived up to the surrounding hype? James Wiseman has a mind of his own The second overall pick of the 2020 NBA Draft was the talk of the town. Making his way to one of the best franchises, he had a lot of responsibility on him.

    After a gruesome injury in the 2019 NBA Finals, Kevin Durant stayed on the sidelines for over a year. He finally returned to action with the Nets this season and has picked up from where he left off. Tonight, against the Milwaukee Bucks, he had another brilliant performance. He scored 30 points while grabbing nine rebounds and six assists. But most importantly, he shot the eventual game-winning three. After the game, Blazers star CJ McCollum and Durant’s former teammate Andre Iguodala were praising him on Twitter. Iguodala, who won two titles with Durant at Golden State, had the highest of praises for the Slim Reaper. He said, “Buddy a god!” while talking about how it was amazing to play alongside him. McCollum agreed while admitting that Durant had looked like a “cheat code” when they had worked out a few times in the past. James Harden praises Kevin Durant After...

    Getty James Harden #13 of the Houston Rockets reacts after a teammate was called for a foul against the Golden State Warriors during the second half of an NBA game on December 25, 2019 in San Francisco, California. Despite James Harden announcing that he wanted to be traded and naming the Miami Heat as one of his preferred teams to join, the NBA’s leading scorer will not be taking his talents to South Beach. At least, not at the moment. While it would be exciting to have such an elite player join the team, the Heat is already stacked with a roster of young talent and have a strong leader in Jimmy Butler. Save for Jae Crowder, the team who made a run to the 2019 Finals just over two months ago, is still pretty much intact. Jalen Rose said on ESPN on Saturday, “If you’re one of...

    New York Mets: Yes, J.T. Realmuto is Better But James McCann Fits Right By: Daniel Marcillo December 15, 2020 ShareTweetFlipRedditWhen the New York Mets locked down James McCann on a four-year deal, there were still questions about J.T.

    The way James Harden scores is unfair to everyone but him. He rocks opponents to sleep with a yo-yo dribble that turns seconds into hours. He ignores ready teammates to consume the clock with hypnotic grooves and score on armies of defenders. He trundles his body into blind spot lanes to confuse referees and create chaos. He’s frustrated legions of defenders and now he’s frustrating Tilman Fertitta, the billionaire owner of the Houston Rockets who’s now isolated in a face-off against maybe the best pure scorer the NBA has ever seen—in the death waltz of a dissatisfied star, due to collect $40 million in salary this year, and his obscenely powerful boss, worth more than $4 billion. Or not so isolated, as much of the sports commentary about the standoff has focused on how unjust Harden supposedly is being to the team, its fans, and its owner, with many sportswriters...

It is one the Nets are trying to ignore. “I guess we let the elephant be,” Nets coach Steve Nash said of the Harden rumors. “I love our guys and hopefully they all feel really valued and wanted and respected.

    Getty The Bulls are chasing Memphis freshman James Wiseman. The Golden State Warriors are in, quite possibly, the most unique situation in the NBA. Coming off a year where they only posted 15 wins due to their stars being out, 2x MVP Steph Curry breaking his hand early in the season, and 5x all-star Klay Thompson tearing his ACL in his left knee during the 2019 NBA Finals, they became one of the few winners of the NBA’s draft lottery landing the #2 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft. Using that pick, they drafted one of the more talented and skilled players in the draft James Wiseman, formerly of the Memphis Tigers. Having an undeniable low post presence, in his limited collegiate time, on both sides of the ball, this draft selection may very well be the steal that leads the Warriors into the franchise’s future. Which...

    New York Giants: One pair of defenders is excelling in PFF statistics By: Cay North November 21, 2020 ShareTweetFlipRedditWhile the season has been a mixed bag so far for the New York Giants, some players on defense have definitely flourished under new defensive coordinator Patrick Graham.

    One of the best players of all-time, Lakers star LeBron James, is a tough man to defend. With over 34000 career points, he has proven to be unstoppable when he gets going. So when former NBA champion Paul Pierce was listing out the scariest players to guard in the league currently, LeBron was unsurprisingly the first name. Pierce said, “On any given night, he can posterize you at the age of 35. Still winning championships. You don’t want to end up on the waiting spots for LeBron’s posters. That’s a scary thought right there.” While Pierce says that the list is in no particular order, he has had many personal encounters against LeBron to not mention him first. They have played 69 games (regular season + playoffs) against each other, with LeBron coming out on top 35 times. During these games, LeBron has scored over 2000 points, while averaging...
    Melanie McFarland October 29, 2020 11:33PM (UTC) A Chicagoan's hometown pride is uniquely stalwart. No matter where we move to or how long we're transplanted in that new place, many of us still defend the city's grand institutions like the Cubs, deep dish pizza and hot dogs dressed with mustard, onions, celery salt, neon green relish, a pickle spear and fresh tomatoes. (Ketchup is for heathens.)  More than a few yearn for some part of that sweet home even if we're glad to have left it and have no plans to return, informed by the knowledge that for all of the greatness life in that city grants to those living there, there's even more we're glad to have left behind. : Unless you understand all that, the specific appeal of the Nat Geo/Hulu series "City So Real" might escape you or any viewer who hasn't lived there or a place like it...
    BOSTON (CBS) — Patriots running back James White provided an update on his mother during his Wednesday afternoon media session, saying that she is doing better after being involved in the tragic car accident that killed White’s father, Tyrone. It has been just over a month since White’s world was turned upside-down when his parents were involved in the accident in South Florida. His father was killed, while his mother was left in critical condition when another car hit them as they were making a turn.

    LeBron James and Anthony Davis celebrate the Lakers' 2020 championship. Mark J. Terrill/AP Images The Los Angeles Lakers looked like a disaster at the end of the 2018-19 season, thanks to poor team chemistry, a dysfunctional organizational structure, sloppy head-coaching search, and limited means to improve. The Lakers overhauled their roster by landing Anthony Davis, who wanted to go to L.A. because LeBron James had joined the Lakers. Key members of the Lakers, from team owner Jeannie Buss to GM Rob Pelinka, to LeBron James, also made commitments to improving and putting in hard work. Few teams have experienced such a turn-around, and now the Lakers look like championship favorites heading into next season. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.

    LeBron James’ fourth NBA championship was celebrated with a cigar, because it seems to be what legends do in this circumstance. Honestly, though, no one ever had sat precisely where he did late Sunday. This has been an NBA season unlike any other, and its conclusion is a special sort of miracle in itself, given the four-month hiatus necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic and the league’s achievement in enduring 10 weeks in the “bubble” it constructed in Orlando without anyone housed there coming down with the disease.

    LeBron James and his place next to Michael Jordan on the all-time list is becoming a big conversation as the former stands one win away from his fourth Championship. While it isn’t Jordan’s six titles, there is a very real argument for LeBron next to MJ if he wins this championship. One of MJ’s biggest rivals, Detroit Pistons point guard Isiah Thomas, has delivered his verdict. Thomas does have animosity towards Jordan from their playing days. However, he substantiates his choice of LeBron James by separating the skills of the two players. “When I take away the genetic gifts and look at basketball playing ability, who is the better basketball player if you don’t have the genetic freakiness with it? I look at all those guys who are similar in size. LeBron, Jordan, Magic, they all have the genetic gift of size. But Jordan had the genetic jumping ability....

For as high quality as the basketball has been inside the Orlando bubble, the 2020 NBA Finals have been a serious letdown. The Lakers’ stifling defense deserves a ton of credit, and those numbers should honestly look worse considering the absences of both Dragic and Adebayo, but there’s no question the Heat’s offense has lacked substantial firepower without a crafty initiator like the Dragon. The games in the Orlando bubble have been jam-packed with thrilling battles, epic comebacks and feel-good stories galore (remember the Phoenix Suns going 8-0?). Unfortunately, aside from Butler’s Game 3 performance that jumpstarted this series’ flatlining pulse, the Finals have been a depressingly one-sided and predictable snooze-fest. LeBron James has more than earned one easy Finals matchup in his lifetime,...

    Jana's video divided fans. Counting On star Jana Duggar praised one of her brothers for being “creative” after he used a weed eater to make it abundantly clear that their family supports President Donald Trump. However, his supersized version of a political sign wasn’t a hit with all of Jana’s fans. Jana, 30, took to Instagram on Monday to give her followers a glimpse at how her younger brother James, 19, created a huge piece of “yard artwork.” In the video that she shared, the teen was shown using a weed eater to cut the green grass on one of the sloping hills in front of the Duggars’ home in Tontitown, Arkansas. Jana addressed the camera as he created a straight line, asking her fans to see if they could guess what his creation was. In the comments section, one of her followers wrote that she initially “loved” the artwork...

    Jimmy Butler will be starting at guard tonight for the Miami Heat, facing the dreaded Los Angeles Lakers in Game 1 of the NBA Finals. Butler is one of the NBA’s least likely players, and almost certainly its least likely superstar. Butler was kicked out of his house when he was 13 (his mother said, “I don’t like the look of you, you gotta go,” right before sending him to fend for himself), experienced a brief stint of homelessness, found a second home, and devoted himself to basketball and making the NBA. He was not tendered a scholarship offer, despite a great high school career—his absence on the AAU circuit probably didn’t help—so he went to junior college, where he excelled enough to find himself at Marquette University during his sophomore year. He began at the end of the bench, playing behind Wes Matthews and scraping playing time, like rust...
    New York Giants: James Bradberry is dominating through three weeks By: Anthony Rivardo ShareTweetFlipRedditThe New York Giants‘ secondary has been inconsistent through the first three weeks of the 2020 NFL season.

And among the matters her office appears to be scrutinizing is a mysterious debt that has long appeared on his balance sheet: a $50 million loan connected to Trump’s Chicago hotel and tower project that Trump claims to owe himself. In the past, Trump has suggested that this debt represents a loan he repurchased from a lender, but Mother Jones reported last year that the loan may not exist and may be evidence of tax fraud. James’ investigation has not previously been made public, but according to the 68-page filing by her office, New York state prosecutors have been negotiating with the Trump Organization for months to turn over documents...
    Jerry Seinfeld is the latest New Yorker to defend the city against claims that it's on a decline, driven by protests, budget woes and a coronavirus-fueled flight to the suburbs. In an op-ed in the New York Times on Monday, the comedian and former sitcom star, said he has no plans to leave, calling the city "the brilliant diamond of activity it will one day be again." Seinfeld wrote, "Real, live, inspiring human energy exists when we coagulate together in crazy places like New York City." Seinfeld was responding to a LinkedIn post from investment personality James Altucher that claimed New York was "dead forever."

    The United States is in need of a root canal, according to Democratic strategist James Carville. Carville compared President Trump to a "giant, infected wisdom tooth" that needs to be removed in 2020.

"I’m going to, you know, dwell on all of my resentments after this election, but right now, I’ve just got one mission in life and that is to help extract this giant, infected wisdom tooth that is, you know, hurting the body politic of this country," Carville said.

    The New York attorney general is “one of the most partisan figures,” said Fox News contributor Ari Fleischer on Thursday, as he criticized Letitia James' move to try to dissolve the National Rifle Association. “This is how an office gets politicized. On the merits of this, there are always two sides to a lawsuit. Let’s see what the NRA says to defend themselves here, I don’t know the facts, but on the politics of it, this is one of the dumbest biggest mistakes an attorney general or anyone can make on an election year,” the former George W. Bush White House press secretary told “Outnumbered Overtime.” Fleischer said that James ran an election campaign on an “anti-President Trump, anti-Republican and anti-conservative platform."

    There’s horror in old age—the sort no one wants to think about, or look at, or discuss. It’s in that uncomfortable truth that Relic locates its greatest terror and, in doing so, delivers deep, gnawing dread that lingers long after its credits have rolled.
