    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?

    The Brooklyn Nets carried their excellent form into tonight’s game, as they beat the LA Clippers. It was a narrow two-point win for the Nets, their 20th of the season. In the absence of Kevin Durant, James Harden stepped up once again and had a 37-point performance. He was brilliant throughout the game, but his most clutch play was a flop in the end. Kawhi Leonard drove to the rim to bring the Clippers level, with Harden defending him. The Nets star then flopped, and to the dismay of the Clippers, the referee called an offensive foul. That sealed the game for the Nets, and the Clippers walked away with their second loss in three games. Although the Clippers didn’t protest about the call later, fans on Twitter were not amused by Harden. The 2018 MVP is already infamous for his flopping on offense, so this is a first for him as well.

    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.

    More On: nba LeBron James’ next flop could cost him A Frankenstein monster is destroying the NBA Lakers star returns in style as win streak hits seven Two big-name NBA stars put on incredible show DENVER — Nikola Jokic recorded his sixth triple-double of the season and the Denver Nuggets beat Los Angeles 122-105 on Sunday night in a game where Lakers forward Anthony Davis hobbled from the court after appearing to re-aggravate his sore right Achilles. There was no immediate update on the injury that Davis sustained late in the first half. The spotlight was on the showdown between Jokic and LeBron James, who are both among the favorites in the NBA MVP race. Jokic finished with 23 points, 16 rebounds and 10 assists. James had 22 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists, but the Lakers’ seven-game win streak ended. Los Angeles never got back on track after Davis limped to the locker room. He was banged up when he tried to drive around Jokic with 2:39 left before halftime. Davis hobbled to the free-throw line, made both...
    In the 2020 offseason, the Houston Rockets bid farewell to their star duo of Russell Westbrook and James Harden. While Harden spent eight years with the franchise, Westbrook was unsettled after just one year with the franchise. Following those two massive trades, H-Town is heading in a completely new direction this season. They are now being led by former Washington Wizards’ superstar John Wall. Speaking of the Wizards, Westbrook returned to Houston for the first time since the trade. However, it was not a happy reunion for Russ as the Wizards were completely blown out tonight. John Wall steered his team past the Wizards by scoring a solid 24 points in 24 minutes. In the post-Harden era, the Rockets are playing extremely well, which came as a surprise to many people.

    (CNN)Steph Curry left it late to lift the Golden State Warriors to a 115-113 victory against the LA Lakers after a dramatic finale on Monday. The 32-year-old finished the game with 26 points and scored a three-pointer with just over a minute left on the clock to overturn his side's 14 point deficit in the final quarter. The Warriors, who had struggled in the first half, managed to hang on despite LeBron James almost saving the game for the Lakers at the buzzer."We kept our composure. The second unit was amazing both halves," Curry said after the game, per ESPN."We got some momentum in the second half to give us a chance and carry us down the stretch."Read MoreThe Lakers had looked dominant early on in the game and had led by as much as 19 points in the first quarter.

    James Harden made his Nets debut Saturday, and made it a triumphant one. Brooklyn didn’t get to unveil its Big Three, with Kyrie Irving still out. But Harden and Kevin Durant proved enough to lead the Nets to a 122-115 win over the Orlando Magic. After Harden – known for overdribbling and isolation basketball in Houston – talked about sharing and playmaking, he put his game where his mouth was. Though still unfamiliar with his Nets teammates and their likes and tendencies, he played the role of facilitator, and gladly took a scoring backseat to Durant. Harden had 32 points, 14 assists and 11 rebounds – the first player in NBA history with a 30-point triple-double in their debut with a team. Durant poured in a game-high 42 points on 5-of-8 from deep. His 307 points this season are second-most ever through 10 games with a new team (behind only Wilt Chamberlain’s 371).

That’s what we debated in an NBA roundtable — the Milwaukee Bucks, Philadelphia 76ers and Boston Celtics might be better, simply because it could take a little while for the three superstars to figure out who’s handling the ball, who’s taking the final shot in a close game and so much more, with a head coach (Steve Nash) in his first year at the helm.

    SAN ANTONIO — Houston’s first game without James Harden went better than anyone could have expected. Christian Wood had 27 points and 15 rebounds, and the Rockets rallied to beat the San Antonio Spurs 109-105 on Thursday night in their first game since trading away the franchise cornerstone. “It was fun. It was really cool stuff,” Houston’s first-year coach Stephen Silas said. Sterling Brown, who took Harden’s spot in the starting lineup, had 23 points, seven rebounds and three assists in 36 minutes. Jae’Sean Tate added 13 points, 10 assists and five rebounds. San Antonio forward Keldon Johnson had a career-high 29 points and Lonnie Walker IV added 16 points while tying a career-high with four 3-pointers. Houston sent Harden to the Brooklyn Nets in a four-team blockbuster trade on Wednesday. Victor Oladipo, Dante Exum and Rodions Kurucs, who the Rockets acquired along with numerous draft picks and draft swaps for Harden, are not with the team yet. It was Houston’s first game without Harden since 2012, when Oklahoma City traded its young guard to the Rockets primarily due to...

    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.

    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.

    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."

    Los Angeles Lakers guard Danny Green revealed today that both himself and his finacée allegedly received death threats after the team’s Game 5 loss on Friday. Green stated the threats came on social media from fans that were upset he missed a three-point attempt that could have put the team up in the final seconds, according to a report from Bleacher Report. “I’d give anything to get that shot back again, trust me,” he stated in an interview afterwards. However, Green kept his composure and made sure not to get too down on himself over only one play. “Any person that plays basketball knows it’s never only on one play,” he said regarding the squad’s loss. According to a report from Sports Illustrated, L.A. was down by one point with the ball on the last possession. Los Angeles superstar LeBron James drove down the right side of the lane and pitched the ball back to Green, who was set at the top of the key. With less than nine seconds left in the competition, Green’s wide open three-point shot was...

    LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — The first 10 matchups between the Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat all were basically the same. The Lakers won them all, eight of the 10 by double figures. The Lakers haven’t had such a sustained run of success against the Heat again until now. When the NBA Finals resume at Walt Disney World with Game 3 on Sunday night, the Lakers will be trying to beat the Heat for a seventh consecutive time.

    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.

    Anthony Davis wanted to be the one to take the last shot Sunday night, to show he can thrive on a big stage. When he got the opportunity, he did not miss: a nothing-but-net 3-pointer as time expired to give the Lakers a 105-103 victory over the Nuggets and a 2-0 series lead in the Western Conference finals. Davis, for all his talent and regular-season achievements, still needs to impress the “ringzzzz” and “clutch” crowds as he plays in his first conference finals. He took a major step in that direction with his rainbow over Denver’s Nikola Jokic. “People talk about never being in the moment, pressure, am I ready for it? I want to take those shots. As part of [my] legacy I want those shots, I want the big-time plays,” he told TNT’s Allie LaForce in an on-court interview after the game. “We’re going to live with me shooting the . . . game-winning shots, [and] I made it. “This is what they brought me here for, to make big-time plays.” Davis got an open look when Denver failed to switch...
    James Harden admitted he “was just doing everything that was not supposed to happen” before coming up with a vital series-winning block in Game 7 against the Thunder. The Rockets superstar had just 17 points on Wednesday after also failing to have an impact late in Game 6. The Thunder won on that occasion as Russell Westbrook was instead handed control of the team down the stretch and contributed costly clutch errors, prompting Chris Paul, Harden’s ex-teammate, to say: “Some people are built for it, some people shy away from it.” But just as it looked as though Harden would come up short again, a block on Lu Dort denied the OKC rookie the chance to win the first-round series from three-point range in the closing seconds. “Offensively, I played like s— – excuse my language,” Harden told ESPN. “I couldn’t make a shot, turned the ball over, was just doing everything that was not supposed to happen, but I just kept sticking with it. “My teammates give me confidence throughout the game. Defensively I had to make a play and I closed it...
