LeBron James calls out Lakers for reluctance to make trade: ‘Y’all know what the f— should be happening’

LeBron James, it seems, has had enough. Following his 37-point, eight-rebound, seven-assist performance in the Los Angeles Lakers' 136-134 victory over the Sacramento Kings, which extended their winning streak to a season-high five games, James spoke with The Athletic about the lack of movement on the trade front and made himself quite clear."Y'all know what the f--- should be happening," James said. "I don't need to talk."What James is referring to is the Lakers trading one or both of their remaining future first-round picks in 2027 and 2029 to get him some help. The front office, however, has been reluctant to send away either asset for fear of mortgaging the future for an average team.James has previously made indi...

Gervonta Davis must maintain a zen-like focus against a dangerous opponent in Hector Luis Garcia

Of all the various pre-fight narratives entering Saturday's Showtime pay-per-view card in Washington, D.C, headlined by the return of Gervonta "Tank" Davis, few have been able to find airspace following the power-punching star's arrest for misdemeanor domestic battery just one week out from the fight. Davis (27-0, 25 KOs), who is set to face 130-pound titleholder Hector Luis Garcia (16-0, 10 KOs) in a lightweight main event, spent a night in prison and was released on $1,000 bail after being accused of striking the mother of his daughter with a closed-fist slap in Parkland, Florida, where the fighter was training. Reactions to the troubling arrest, yet another in a string of legal setbacks for the 28-year-old Baltimor...

Steelers looking to pull off improbable playoff feat that only two teams have accomplished over past 56 years

Icon Sportswire When an NFL team starts the season with a 2-6 record, that's usually a kiss of death when it comes to making the playoffs. Since the Super Bowl era started in 1966, only two teams out of 186 have made the postseason after opening the year with six losses in their first eight games, according the AP. Over five-and-a-half decades, that means only 1.07% of 2-6 teams have ever made the postseason, which isn't exactly an encouraging number if you're one of those teams. Althoug...

Jaylen Brown says Celtics ‘pick and choose’ when they want to play after embarrassing loss to Thunder

When the Oklahoma City Thunder announced on Tuesday afternoon that Shai Gilgeous-Alexander would be out for their matchup with the league-leading Boston Celtics due to an illness, all signs pointed to a blowout. That was indeed what happened, just not in the way everyone expected. The Thunder embarrassed the Celtics setting a new franchise record for points in a 150-117 win. The 33-point defeat was the worst for the Celtics since Jan. 31, 2003, when the Detroit Pistons crushed them by 52 points. In addition, it was just the second time in franchise history that the Celtics allowed five 20-point scorers in the same game; Josh Giddey (25), Luguentz Dort (23), Tre Mann (21), Jalen Williams (21) and Isaiah Joe (21) combin...

Giants make playoffs for first time in six years: Comparing 2022 team to past two Giants Super Bowl teams

On September 1, the Giants were +235 to make the playoffs. They defied the odds and are in the postseason after a convincing Week 17 victory over the Colts. What a Year 1 in the Brian Daboll-Joe Schoen era for the G-Men.After a rousing start to the season, the Giants fell on hard times around the midway point, yet battled through and Week 18 only matters for playoff positioning for the Eagles in the season finale in Philadelphia. Some are saying these Giants feel like the 2017 Bills, a valiant barely-above-.500 club, with a first-year head coach, that ended Buffalo's 17-year playoff drought by sneaking into the postseason in the final hours of that regular season. But why not compare the Giants to the two most famous ...
