The video has been viewed over 20 million times and touched just about everybody including some celebs.

 

Everyone from LeBron James to Justin Bieber, Cardi B, Snoop Dogg, Chris Evans, Demi Lovato and Millie Bobby Brown are offering the boy some encouragement with posts on social media.

James, naturally, was not at the home when it was sprayed. Authorities are looking at security footage. It may be treated as a hate crime. James bought the six-bedroom, 9,350 sq ft home in 2015.

James is more than likely in the Bay area preparing for game 1 of the NBA finals set for tomorrow.

Late Push By The Hawks Not Enough To Beat The Cavs

(SL) -The Atlanta Hawks had to face another one of their former teammates Friday night when they hosted the Cleveland Cavaliers and welcomed back their former sharpshooter Kyle Korver. After getting over the shock of being traded and getting adjusted to the Cavs’ offense being traded may have been the best thing to happen to Kyle and a subtle regret for Atlanta.

With Cleveland, all Kyle has to do is shoot. Long gone are the days of running around chasing shots, making it easier for him to do his job. Korver is shooting 50% from the 3-point line and he flexed that muscle against the team he used to drain shots for and helped Lebron James and Kyrie Irving lead Cleveland to a 135-130 win.

The main question for the Hawks…where was the defense? It was almost non-existent in the first half giving up 22 points to Lebron and 23 to Kyrie. Granted the Hawks shot 55% in the first have, but the Cavs were solid with 63%. You can’t make mistakes against a team like the Cavs. At the half, Cleveland led (77-60).
Start of the second half and whether or not the Cavs were trying to make a statement is debatable. However, they’re just that good so it’s easier to surmise that they were just playing their game.
Two quick 3s and the punishment would continue. Emotions were already running high, but when Lebron James gave Kent Bazemore a little elbow to back him up and Baze was called for the foul, Coach Bud went ballistic.

The technical foul would in a sense give the Hawks a late spark and in the 4th qtr they were successful in shutting down the Cavs’ 3-point shooting and opening the door for Tim Hardaway Jr. pick up where they left off. He was 5-9 from the arc with 36 points for the night.
The Hawks, who were down by more than 20 at one point had pulled within a 3 point deficit and the threat of overtime was hanging threateningly over the Cleveland’s head. But the Cavs would hold on and victory was theirs.
Paul Millsap also chipped in 27 for Atlanta. But Kyrie Irving and Lebron James would be the high men of the night with 43 and 38 respectively. Great effort but no cigar. Next up the Cavs meet another former teammate, Jeff Teague, when they host Indiana on Sunday.

(SL) –  The inevitable happened Sunday in Atlanta.  Lebron James and the Cavs finished sweeping the Atlanta Hawks and will now prepare for the Eastern Conference Finals.  Kevin Love led all scorers with 27 points and 13 rebounds.  He had 8 of Cleveland’s 16 3s. Post Game presser with Love,  James (21 pts 10 rebounds 9 assists) and Kyrie who had 21 pts and 8 assists.

Cavs Takeover 4th Qtr To Beat Hawks 121-108

(SL) – The Atlanta Hawks gave it all they had in Game 3 against the Cleveland Cavaliers.  At the half they led 63-55 and was shooting almost 60 percent from the perimeter. At one point Cleveland was down by 11 to which J.R Smith says the feeling was to, “Keep our composure.

At times like that in the past we’ve had bad body language and allowed teams to gout there and do whatever they wanted to do.  But tonight we played extremely well. The way Channing played was unbelievable.  Everybody played extremely well.”

Kevin Love and Lebron James plot their next move. 

Channing Frye came off the bench to lead all scorers with 27 pts. Cavs Coach Tyronn Lue says, “Channing’s an excellent three-point shooter.  I thought the lineup of Kevin and Channing really gave them problems because it opened up the floor for Kyrie and LeBron to get the basket and if their bigs helped, Kevin and Channing would be wide open for shots. Channing did a great job of taking the shots and we want him to be aggressive taking the shots and he made them tonight.”

Channing would prove to be a problem for the Hawks, scoring 7 of Cleveland’s 3s (21). When it was all said and done Atlanta would lose by 13 (121-108).  A disappointing loss indeed and that frustration surely took its toll, as displayed when Jeff Teague forcefully pushed/fouled Lebron James causing him to fall into some of the crowd.

Post game James talked about that flagrant foul, their uncharacteristic play, hitting the restart button in the 4th quarter and I asked him about the possibility of returning to Miami for the Eastern Conference Finals.

Overall, James says they’re focused on Game 4 and that’s it.  It goes down Sunday at Philips Arena.  Tip-off is at 3:30pm.
