    Pon de Replay: The essential Rihanna playlist LGBTQ Retirees Struggle with Financial Security LeBron James has already done the unthinkable. Entering Year 19, he’s taken a blowtorch to any historical precedent about what any player should be capable of at this stage.  Consider the last 18 months, alone: Winning a fourth NBA title Becoming the first player in NBA history to win Finals MVP with three different teams Passing Kobe Bryant for third on the all-time scoring list Leading the entire league in assists per game Scoring 25 a night for the 17th(!!!) year in a row Winning an Oscar for Spa… ok, maybe not that one And yet, it’s amazing how quickly we all seem to forget. Nagging injuries, a first-round exit to the Phoenix Suns, and otherworldly performances by Giannis Antetokounmpo and Kevin Durant seems to have thrown the masses off the King’s scent.

    Getty Vikings receiver K.J. Osborn celebrated his game-winning TD over the Panthers by paying homage to Stefon Diggs and Lebron James. Minnesota Vikings wide receiver K.J. Osborn knew how he’d celebrate a walk-off touchdown if the opportunity came his way. The second-year receiver, running the same high corner route that Stefon Diggs broke loose on during Minneapolis Miracle, caught a pass from Kirk Cousins and extended the ball across the goal line to secure a 34-28 walk-off overtime victory over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. He heaved his helmet in the air, paying homage to Diggs and the Minneapolis Miracle win over the New Orleans Saints in the 2018 NFC playoffs. Shortly after Sunday’s win, Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio reported that the Osborn had planned to throw his helmet on an overtime touchdown. He also borrowed Lebron James‘ “silencer” celebration as the Fox NFL camera pans in for a close-up. The latest Vikings news straight to your inbox! Join the Heavy on Vikings newsletter here!

    Believing LeBron James isn’t clutch is a tough hill to die on, but Fox Sports’ Skip Bayless is repeatedly willing to go there. Even after James drained an incredible game winning three-point shot in a postseason game against Steph Curry’s Golden State Warriors, Bayless gave the performance a measly one out of 10. “Scale of one to ten, how clutch was it? I’m going to give it a one,” Bayless told his Undisputed co-host Shannon Sharpe. “There was a minute left on the clock!” he continued. “Jordan would have waited until the bitter end to take and make the big shot.” LeBron was running around on a bad ankle that caused him to miss 26 of the Lakers final 30 games. He was seeing triple after getting poked in the eye and still managed to drain an incredibly difficult three-point shot during a play-in game, carrying the Lakers into the playoffs. But Bayless didn’t even wait for his Thursday morning show to slander LeBron’s game winner, tweeting that it was a “lucky desperate three” with “no expectation, no...
    For the fourth straight season, the NBA’s best players will meet in an All-Star Game for which two captains have picked the rosters. It’s Team LeBron versus Team Durant for 2021, as LeBron James’ group matches up with Kevin Durant’s picks. Another win for James would run his All-Star winning streak to four games, only enhancing his standing in the game. By the looks of the rosters, he is already on his way to accomplishing that feat. It takes a certain mindset, particularly in March when the college basketball action is heating up, to commit to watching and wagering on the spectacle that is the NBA All-Star Game. That said, it is the only game on the NBA board, so most bettors are inclined to take part in the action. I have developed a quantitative system that analyzes the rosters and projects a point spread and who should win. It has been very successful, as if I recall, the overall record of my system over the last 10 years has been 7-3 SU and 6-3-1 ATS. A year ago, Team...
    LeBron James had another disappointing night with the purple and gold. The Lakers suffered their third consecutive defeat, this time to Bradley Beal and the Washington Wizards. The Lakers had a 17-point lead, but couldn’t keep it together. LeBron had the chance to win the game for the Lakers with a free-throw but missed, and the Lakers lost eventually in overtime. Twitter had a field day at LeBron’s expense. This isn’t the first time that James has missed a crucial free-throw. For all his strengths, James has never been a great free-throw shooter, especially in crunch time. Analysts and fans alike took to Twitter to lambast James for his poor showing. First in line was none other than Skip Bayless, who is perhaps James’ biggest critic. READ MORE: LeBron James’ Nike Deal: How Much Does the Los Angeles Lakers Star Make From It?

    Getty LeBron James of the Lakers Fox Sports talking head and notorious blowhard Skip Bayless has never been much of a LeBron James fan. So it’s not surprising that the Los Angeles Lakers’ 96-94 loss at home Saturday to the Miami Heat did little to change that.  The source of Bayless’s latest gripe against the four-time NBA champion, four-time league MVP and 16-time All-Star stems from a decision James made in the final seconds of Saturday’s game. Down two with 8.4 seconds left, LeBron tipped an ill-advised Heat inbound pass back to Lakers teammate Alex Caruso, who took three dribbles and passed the ball to James for what would’ve been a make-or-break 3-point attempt.

    PHOENIX (AP) – LeBron James and Anthony Davis returned to the court for the Los Angeles Lakers, less than a week before the start of the regular season — and just over two months after winning the NBA title. This short offseason could be particularly tough on the Lakers after their run to the championship, but James and Davis played for the first time this preseason Wednesday night in Los Angeles’ 112-107 victory at Phoenix. Davis sank a turnaround to start the game and had 10 points in 17 1/2 minutes. James scored 11 points in 15 minutes. “I felt great, honestly,” Davis said. “Coming in, I thought I was going to be a little winded. You can try to get in shape all you want, but it’s nothing like getting in basketball shape.” The Lakers, who beat Miami to win the championship Oct. 11, start the new season against the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday night. In addition to James and Davis, Kyle Kuzma was in the starting lineup for the Lakers on Wednesday, along with new acquisitions Dennis...
    Tom Brady showed he can laugh at himself while congratulating LeBron James for winning his fourth NBA title Sunday night. Brady on Monday tweeted a photoshopped image of James wearing the quarterback’s No. 12 Tampa Bay Buccaneers jersey while holding up four fingers. “Congrats to my brother @KingJames on winning his 4th championship,” Brady wrote. “Not bad for a washed up old guy.” The 43-year-old Brady had been questioned following the Bucs’ 20-19 loss last Thursday night to the Chicago Bears for likely losing track of the downs late in the game. With Tampa Bay needing a field goal to take the lead, Brady threw an incomplete pass on fourth down and then held up four fingers, despite already turning the ball over on downs. The 35-year-old James led the Los Angeles Lakers to their first championship since 2010 with a six-game elimination of the Miami Heat, winning his fourth career championship (with three teams) and his fourth Finals MVP award. Afterward, he demanded, “I want my damn respect.” Brady, who won six Super Bowl titles with the New...

    The TV ratings were brutal Sunday night for the NBA as the Los Angeles Lakers won the championship over the Heat. According to ShowBuzzDaily.com, the game peaked at an average of 6.028 million viewers on ABC. Just how bad is that number? (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) Well, the sixth and final game in 2019 had 18.34 million viewers. That means the last game of the 2020 Finals was down more than 67%! Not only did the ratings tank compared to last year, but the NBA Finals were also crushed by “Sunday Night Football” on NBC, which peaked at more than 12 million viewers. No matter how you spin it, there’s no happy ending for the NBA when it comes to the 2020 Finals.   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Los Angeles Lakers (@lakers) on Oct 11, 2020 at 8:30pm PDT As I’ve said before, I think there are a lot of reasons for why the NBA is doing so poorly right now.

    Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images LeBron James won his fourth championship and fourth Finals MVP on Sunday. After winning Finals MVP, James said, "I want my damn respect."

Cox LeBron James says the Los Angeles Lakers have developed a hard-nosed approach to the "winning time" of fourth quarter play The Lakers took a commanding 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven series after holding off a physical Miami side in a hard-fought contest to close out a 102-06 win in Orlando. The result extended the Lakers' record of remaining unbeaten this season whenever they have led going into the fourth quarter. The team is 56-0 when taking a lead into the fourth. "I think the fourth quarter, obviously it's winning time," Lakers star LeBron James said afterwards.  "You've got 12 minutes to buckle down defensively with the lead, kind of hold that lead, and then you have to execute offensively.  "That's the...
    LeBron James during Game 4. Mark J. Terrill/AP Images Over the final 5:34 of Game 4, LeBron James guarded Denver Nuggets guard Jamal Murray.

Garrabrant / National Basketball Association / Getty James knew that containing Murray was crucial to the team's success, so he requested the defensive assignment. "I knew it was winning time and Jamal had it going," James told reporters postgame. "The kid is special. He has an array of shots, the triple threat - from the three, from the midrange, and also in the paint. And for me it's just trusting my defensive keys, trusting my study of film, trusting personnel, and living with the results. "Told my teammates that I had him and everyone else can kind of stay at bay and stay at home and I was able to get a couple of stops and rebound the basketball,...
