(SL) – LeBron James used his platform at Cedar Park Amusement Park to react to Donald Trump’s mouth dropping press conference in which he seemed to support White Supremacy and equally blame anti-racists for the violence in Charlottesville VA.
(SL) – Someone tagged N***** on the gate outside of LeBron James’ $21 Million dollar L.A. home. Reportedly, Cops investigated early Wednesday morning, but by the time they arrived the property manager had painted over the word.
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.
(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.
(SL) – The NBA All-Star game got a treat it wasn’t expecting…an appearance by the Carters. Jay, Bey, Blue and the twins were courtside for all of the action as longtime friend Lebron James played for the East. The 66th All-Star Game took place in New Orleans.
Bey and Blue were pictured having lunch with Solange and her son Juelz over the weekend. Beyonce wrapped her baby bump in a chic patterned kimono for the occasion.
She also sported a white T-shirt, ripped light blue jeans and a pair of strappy stilettos.
(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.
(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.”
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.
(SL) – It was a good one and a preview of what we can expect for the playoffs! I think everyone is ready for the 2nd season and The Atlanta Hawks and Cleveland Cavaliers gave us a peek at what we can look forward to Friday night at Philips Arena. Where do I start? The Hawks got off to a strong start but by the
end of the 1st quarter, Atlanta was reminded why the Cavs are the top team in the East. Somewhere between the 1st and 2nd quarter Cleveland managed to get ahead by 21 points, but by halftime the Hawks had cut that lead down to 14 with aggressive play by Paul Millsap and Jeff Teague. As the 3rd quarter got underway, Paul Millsap continued to lead offensively and as they headed into the 4th the Cavs only led by 7.
Cleveland would lead by 11 in the 4th, but Atlanta fought back and forced their way into overtime. It would end with Al Horford missing a 3 at the buzzer. Paul Millsap scored a season high 29 points 12 rebounds (yes another double double) and Jeff Teague was pure Nacho with 28 points and 9 assists.Al Horford and Kyle Korver both chipped in 14 points. It was devastating loss indeed considering the Cavs pulled out the win only shooting 39.8%
from the field. Iman Shumpert said their defense came up big when they needed it. Defense along with Lebron James’ 29 points and 16 rebounds and 9 assists was a recipe for victory and landed King James at #11 on the NBA’s scoring list. Kyrie Irving, despite all the drama involving his ex-girlfriend had a good game too scoring 20 points. Kyrie was only 5-23 from the field but made 5 of 6 free throws in the final 20 seconds of OT.
Those free throws are why Lebron James says they felt comfortable putting the ball in Irving’s hands at the end. Lebron said, “I’ve never known him to miss a free throw in OT.” Clutch indeed. Outside of a good game, halftime was pretty entertaining too with the King of The South,
TI, performing for a sellout crowd.that included his three sons who were courtside watching their pop do what he does best. Also in attendance, singer and songwriter, The Dream and rapper Future.Up next, the Hawks will play Phoenix on Tuesday while the Cavs will go head to head with Charlotte on Sunday.
