James Harden sued by Moses Malone Jr. over alleged attack

The alleged attack was purportedly in retaliation for a social media post by Malone in which he criticized Harden for charging children for his basketball camp, Fox 26 reported.

In a statement sent to Fox 26, Harden’s attorney, Rusty Hardin, wrote in part: I have previously discussed Moses’ allegations with James and others, and I am totally comfortable that the allegations are untrue. Unfortunately, I am afraid this is just another example of people shopping for a deep pocket when they find that the people actually responsible have no money.

Dillon Brooks officially came in at 6-6 with a 6-6 wingspan. For a player who profiles best as a power forward in terms of his offensive game right now, those are concerning marks that likely will confine him to the wing. That means he’ll need to improve upon his jump shot consistency.

Jordan Bell was possibly the best defensive player in college basketball this season, a shot-blocking dynamo that can also move his feet and defend on the perimeter. His best skill is his ability to time when to leap to contest at the rim. But at just an 8-foot-8.5 standing reach, there are going to be some worries that his rim protection don’t translate well as a primary source in the NBA. He’ll still be valuable on the weak side and as a switchable player, though, and his first day of five-on-five showed off a wide bevy of skills.

Over the years, pick protection has played a significant role in explaining some of the league’s surprising developments, particularly towards the very end of the season. Whether due to increased valuation of picks or the strength of this draft class, as we head toward the end of the regular season, there are very few complicated obligations that affect the 2017 NBA Draft.

Former NFL Films worker sues, claiming 20 years of sexual harassment

A former NFL Films worker has sued the company, claiming she was sexually harassed by multiple supervisors in her almost 20 years at the NFL’s in-house documentary producer.

According to NJ.com , Nadia Axakowsky filed a sexual harassment lawsuit last week in federal court in Camden, N.J. She worked at the New Jersey-based company from 1997 until her employment was terminated in 2016.

Henry signed with the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Western Kentucky in 2015, but was released during final cuts. He then signed with the Broncos and appeared in two games that season, but did not record a catch. After the Broncos released him, he re-signed with the Packers in 2016 before suffering a hand injury in the preseason that landed him on injured reserve.

Later that fall, Henry signed with the Ravens practice squad. But after experiencing severe shoulder pain, an MRI discovered a growth in his chest.

Henry died with his wife, Madison, and other family members by his side. In a Facebook post, his family wrote, “We are so proud of Mitchell’s fight with this terrible disease, proud of how he lived his life for the past 24 years, but most of all proud of his faith and acceptance of Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior.”

“We were very saddened to learn of the passing of Mitchell Henry,” Packers general manager Ted Thompson said in a statement (via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel). “During his time with the Packers, he quickly became a beloved member of our family and made a terrific impression on everyone in our organization. We were fortunate to have had him in our lives. On behalf of the Packers family, we offer our condolences to Mitchell’s wife, Madison, and his family and friends.”warriors_011-115x115

I understand that just because McGwire couldn’t do it doesn’t mean Judge and Bellinger won’t do it

Lanny McDonald Authentic Jersey
Let’s set the stage: Boston won the Friday night contest easily, 9-4, behind a four-homer barrage against Yankees starter Catfish Hunter in the first inning (they hit six total). So the Yankees were looking to right the ship and even the series in the Saturday afternoon game. Amplifying everything even more, the game was being broadcast on national television.

Texans defensive end J.J. Watt, last year’s No. 1 player, was 35th on this year’s list despite only playing three games last season because of a back injury.

Jalin Marshall Authentic Jersey McGwire was the baseball-media and fan darling that season after he seemed to come out of nowhere to launch homers at a historic pace. He had 33 long balls at the All-Star break, leading many, many people to fall victim to just double it-itis and declare that McGwire would probably finish somewhere near 66 home runs and destroy Roger Maris’ single-season record of 61 homers. Not only was McGwire unable to maintain that torrid pace, but he fell off significantly in the second half, hitting just 16 homers to finish with 49 (though he did shatter the previous rookie record of 38 homers held by Frank Robinson).

And, yes, I understand that just because McGwire couldn’t do it doesn’t mean Judge and Bellinger won’t do it. Different players, different eras, different stadiums, yada, yada, yada. It’s just a call for perspective, a rebuff against What’s wrong with Aaron Judge? pieces if he’s not reached 40 homers by Aug. 31.

Though there have been some first player to and fastest player to stats associated with Judge and Bellinger so far, it’s unlikely that either will keep up their frenzied home run pace over the remaining 85-90 games of the season. Potential pitching adjustments aside, here’s the biggest reason: The grind will take hold. The Dog Days can be brutal and unforgiving to all players, but especially first-year guys not accustomed to a 162-game schedule.

Excellent plan, Hue.

Game Marqise Lee Jersey Jackson probably could’ve used those mai tais in 2016 too. He had Robert Griffin III at the top of the depth chart for all of one week before Griffin ran headfirst into a defender and injured his shoulder.

By the end of the year, five different quarterbacks earned play time with the Browns and none threw more than six touchdowns.

Whit Albohm, vice president of daily studio production and executive producer at FS1, said Lewis will appear on studios show such as Undisputed with Skip Bayless, Shannon Sharpe and Joy Taylor (9:30 a.m. ET); The Herd with Colin Cowherd (12 noon ET); Speak for Yourself with Cowherd, Jason Whitlock and Jason McIntyre; and the planned First Things First with Cris Carter and Nick Wright.

Ray is passionate, incisive and has the ability to ignite thought-provoking discussions, said Albohm in a statement. We are fortunate to have Ray officially on our roster and look forward to him bringing the same passion and motivation he demonstrated on the field and in the locker room into our FS1 studio programs and digital platforms.

Said Lewis: My relationship with football and love for the game continues to grow. This opportunity, to bring my passion for the game of football into homes of NFL fans across the country through FOX Sports is a gift. I am excited to join this team and can’t wait for the NFL season to start!

That’s the day that set in motion hours upon hours of watching, reading about and enjoying the game. That’s the day that at least partly led me to marry a woman who agreed that we should honeymoon at spring training. That’s the day that started me on the path to the job I hold today.

Adrian Beltre contributed to the scoring with a first-inning home run.

The Rangers scored seven runs in the first two innings. Elvis Andrus jacked his eighth and ninth home runs, the latter marking a career high. Andrus, in the midst of a breakout season, collected three hits with three runs scored and four RBIs on the night.

Xavier Rhodes Authentic Jersey Adrian Beltre contributed to the scoring with a first-inning home run. He now has 449-career home runs, which ties him with Jeff Bagwell and Vladimir Guerrero for 39th all time.

The former Nevada Wolf Pack quarterback of course became famous, or maybe infamous in this case, when he first sat for the national anthem and eventually took a knee for The Star-Spangled Banner throughout the NFL season. It was a polarizing decision that had players following him, others standing against him, and everyone having an opinion about him.

Since opting out of his contract with the 49ers this past offseason he has been looking for a job without any luck. Since teams are already out of minicamp and he still isn’t employed it does beg the question, how does a quarterback with a 16:4 touchdown to interception ratio last season not have a job?
Leonard Williams Authentic Jersey
According to Goodell, he simply thinks Kaepernick hasn’t earned a job in the NFL after his performance last season. Are you sure it’s not due to his activism which he isn’t backing down from?

Proof came during Peterson’s first OTA practice in New Orleans.

They called a slash play and he put his foot in the ground and cut up-field and there was like a collective gasp, Strief said. That is not an easy thing to do at this level 鈥?to have a physical attribute that exceptional that it looks different than anybody else. He still has that.

Too bad we have to wait until 2018 for the next shot.

Team USA reached the semifinals of the 1930 World Cup, and the Americans have made it past the Round of 16 only one time since. The next opportunity could come at the 2018 World Cup in Russia. If the USMNT advanced to the championship game in that event in Moscow, the reaction would be off the charts.

Better than C-W III? Yes. Too bad we have to wait until 2018 for the next shot.

The third quarter is concluded, and the Cavs are all business. They lead the Celtics 109-74, and likely won’t let the Celtics back into this game. If the Cavs can hold Boston off, LeBron James (who has 35 points, btw) will become the first non-Celtics player to reach seven consecutive NBA Finals.

LeBron James has passed Michael Jordan for most all-time postseason points scored. He did it with this beauty:

LeBron James is one bucket away from breaking Jordan’s record. Boy, was his latest dunk pretty.

Elite Mens Ted Karras Jersey Kyrie Irving hits another 3 off a beautiful spinner. He has the Cavs’ last 13 points, and has 22 points so far. In short, Irving is doing baller things.

It must be noted Stephen plays a significantly different role as the focal point of Golden State’s offense (30.1 usage percentage) while Seth is more of a role player (19.5 usage percentage). There is a huge disparity in volume, as Stephen more than doubled Seth in field-goal attempts (1,443 to 703) and nearly did the same on made shots (675 to 338). Stephen also had a down season by his own lofty standards with Kevin Durant joining the Warriors and shouldering some of the offensive burden. Seth enjoyed the best year of his young career in Dallas and saw major jumps in nearly every statistical category.

While we’re here, let’s not forget that, as Seth said, Pops can still shoot it. Dell was an outstanding marksman throughout his 16-year career and even led the NBA in 3-point percentage (47.6) during the 1998-99 lockout-shortened season. How does the OG Curry stack up against his sons?

Rodgers completed passes to six receivers in the Cowboys game

When Nelson was knocked out of the wild-card win over the Giants with broken ribs, Rodgers shrugged it off and destroyed the Giants through the air the rest of the way. Afterward, he simply said that he believed the Packers would be fine from then on with who they had.

Geronimo (Allison) has been playing a lot for us, he said. Randall (Cobb) being back healthy we’re better with 18 on the field, but Geronimo is going to have to step up and play if Jordys out.

Rodgers completed passes to six receivers in the Cowboys game, pretty much every active skill-position player they dressed. He threw for 356 yards, and Cook and Richard Rodgers caught touchdown passes.

Instead of you like that being the lasting impression, it will be what happened against the Giants at home in Week 17.

New York had it’s wild-card spot locked up and was playing it very carefully with key players on both sides of the ball. Cousins had multiple chances to turn a frustrating 19-10 loss into a Redskins victory. His numbers 22 of 35, 287 yards, TD, two INTs just didn’t add up to that.

Cousins struggled with decision making and moving the ball with a short-to-intermediate passing game in a scoreless first half. His first interception, in the third quarter, came on a throw from right outside the red zone. His second interception, in the fourth quarter, on a potential game-tying drive, came right outside of field-goal range.vikings_119

He did so because he wanted to win a championship

An eight-time All-Star, four-time scoring champion and former MVP, Durant finished with 18 points in 30 minutes, good enough for third on the team. Reigning back-to-back MVP Stephen Curry poured in a game-high 30 points, and his Splash Brother, two-time All-NBA choice Klay Thompson, added 21. Durant’s scoring output was just better than that of Draymond Green, an All-Defensive First-Team choice the past two seasons, who notched his 22nd career triple-double with 17 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds to complete the sweep of Utah.

He did so because he wanted to win a championship, and on Monday he sealed that accomplishment. But he got a little more out of all this than hardware. He got back to actually enjoying his job.

The Warriors’ style of play has helped that. This team has made the game easy for Durant. For nine years, Durant was starring in an isolation-heavy offense in Oklahoma City, sharing possessions with point guard Russell Westbrook. The team was talented, but Durant seemed to be less and less at ease as the seasons went on.
Lance Parrish Mens Jersey
Durant has become part of a team that runs a magnificent, instinctual ball-sharing offense that highlights his skill and versatility. Never was that more apparent than in the NBA Finals, with Durant earning the series MVP after averaging 35.2 points per game.

Tracy Mcgrady Mens Jersey Despite all the public hand-wringing, fact is, the Cavs and Warriors didn’t even rest players all that often this season. Golden State’s top five players rested a total of 13 games 鈥?two for Stephen Curry, three each for Rio Olympians Draymond Green and Klay Thompson and five for Andre Iguodala. Kevin Durant technically did not get games off for rest because he missed 20 games with injuries.

GM: If everything stays the same, it is a toss-up between Jackson and Tatum for them, I think. Jackson is more of an athlete, he has some pretty good potential on both sides of the ball, he could be an elite defender. Tatum is going to be a really good scorer, maybe a 20-point-per-game guy.

LeBron James pauses for selfie during postgame press conference

Elite Dan Bailey Jersey LeBron James’ teammates decided to join him during his postgame press conference Thursday night.

To celebrate reaching the NBA Finals, the guys took a podium selfie, with James pausing mid-answer to smile for the picture.

Elite Shon Coleman Jersey Detroit 鈥?Luke Kennard, SG, Duke. Kennard has made sense for the Pistons all along, and the way he has shot the ball in workouts has helped make him go from a stretch for this team to a very solid outcome, should he still be on the board. He made 43.8 percent of his 3-pointers last year, and though he projects to be a defensive liability in the NBA, shooting is at a premium, especially in Detroit.

Denver 鈥?Zach Collins, C, Gonzaga. Collins played only 17.3 minutes per game for Gonzaga, but his per-40-minute stats are the reason teams have such interest: 23.2 points, 13.6 rebounds, 4.1 blocked shots and 65.2 percent shooting. He has shown flashes of range out to the 3-point line, and has potential as a high-post playmaker. Collins’ limited playing time means there are questions about his defense and conditioning, but his potential is obvious.

Miami 鈥?Donovan Mitchell, SG, Louisville. The Heat have a need at power forward, but they expect to address that through free agency 鈥?anyone they choose here would require time to be an NBA contributor. Mitchell is a dynamic and athletic scorer who could help the Heat brace for Dion Waiters’ free agency.

Portland 鈥?Justin Jackson, SF, North Carolina. Jackson was the ACC’s Player of the Year after averaging 18.3 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.8 assists and leading UNC to a national championship. The knocks on him are that he was not a great rebounder or defensive player, signs that he is not a top-level athlete and that he is already 22 years old. But Jackson is a solid all-around wing who can handle the ball and make plays as well as shoot for himself. The Blazers have three picks in this draft, and could consider a big man, but they need help on the wing, too.

Falcons silencing Seahawks’ ‘Legion of Boom’ should speak volumes… to 49ers

The Falcons have tried to become the Seahawks of the NFC South under Dan Quinn. Thanks to Kyle Shanahan, the Falcons embarrassed the Seahawks of the NFC West.

Let’s hope the 49ers the Seahawks’ stumbling division rival and now only NFL team without a head coach for 2017 paid attention to how Atlanta dismantled The Legion of Boom in Saturday night’s 36-20 divisional playoff rout of Seattle.

That’s exactly the offense San Francisco knows it needs to build with it’s new GM. That’s exactly why it should be ready to hire Shanahan as that new head coach whenever the Falcons are done with their playoff run which may not be for a while.

First place, North. Green Bay jumped up here with the Lions’ loss on Monday because of the head-to-head tiebreaker. It still needs to beat the Lions in Week 17 to win the North, or it would need help from a Redskins loss to get in as a wild card.

Wild card. New York lost to the Eagles, but it still clinched a wild-card berth with the Buccaneers’ loss.

Wild card. Detroit fell out of first place in the North with Monday’s loss in Dallas. It can still get in as North champs by beating the Packers next Sunday. A loss would mean the Lions need the Redskins to lose in order to make it as a wild card.

In the end, Kaepernick proved he is still an NFL quarterback. Maybe not the one who expanded the horizons of how the position is played just three seasons ago, except in brief glimpses here and there. But he also made fools of everybody who insisted he was about to get cut and would disappear from the league for good.

In a league where Case Keenum, Cody Kessler and Matt Barkley (not to mention Blaine Gabbert on his own team) started for significan’t portions of the season not to mention a league where Brock Osweiler, Connor Cook and Matt Moore are starting playoff games this weekend it’s impossible to declare that Kaepernick has no place.avalanche_248
