Curry is fully healthy and the Warriors’ earned plenty of rest

If nothing else, fatigue was a factor for Curry in last year’s Finals. The Warriors fought hard in the regular season to achieve the 73-win season and ended up going to a seven-game series against the Thunder and then a seven-game Finals with the Cavs. That’s a lot of effort expended, especially considering Curry was just coming off of an injury. Game Mens Curtis Samuel Jersey Now, Curry is fully healthy and the Warriors’ earned plenty of rest. By the time Game 1 starts, the Warriors will have played just 19 games in the last 63 days. The rest has benefited the guard as he’s been on fire this postseason, averaging 28.6 points while shooting 50 percent from the field, 43 percent from 3-point range and 90 percent from the free-throw line. Oh yeah, and he’s averaging 5.6 assists and 5.5 rebounds as well. Kevin Love also struggled from 3-point range, drilling just 1 of 7 from deep. He scored […]

Lamar Odom’s daughter speaks out about dad’s terrifying overdose

For the first time, Lamar Odom’s daughter has spoken about her perspective on his drug overdose and how she has dealt with her father’s addiction. Destiny Odom, 18, said her first thought upon hearing her father was unconscious in the hospital after overdosing in a Las Vegas brothel was that he was going to die. “It was a school night when I found out,” Destiny told People Magazine of the October 2015 incident. “We all thought that he was, that this was it for him and he was going to pass away. But, life is so crazy.” Yes, we double-checked to make sure the tweet came from the real Woj’s account, not one of the countless imposters that turn up this time of year. Then again, some of the fake Woj Twitter accounts could come up with better trade scenarios for the Lakers than the one they reportedly agreed to Tuesday night. Mozgov just finished the first season of a […]

Watch: LeBron James, Cavs teammates jam at Future concert

Authentic Patrick Marleau Jersey The Cavs are making the most of their free time before the NBA Finals. Authentic DeMarcus Ware Jersey Ahead of the team’s third consecutive meeting with the Warriors in the championship series, LeBron James and his teammates decided to do some bonding at a Future concert Saturday night outside Akron, Ohio. James, who was joined by J.R. Smith and Dahntay Jones among others, was spotted dancing with his squad two days after eliminating the Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals. Anunoby’s game is one of contrasts. On one hand, he might have more defensive upside than anyone in the NBA Draft due to his size, length, frame and athleticism. On the other, he’s probably the least polished offensive player in the draft 鈥?to the point where it’s difficult to see where he makes an impact on that end right now. Coaches can work with the offensive side, though, as his shot overall is workable mechanically. He’s […]

NBA Finals 2017: LeBron James ‘stopped caring a long time ago’ about critics

LeBron James has learned a thing or two about concentration after seven consecutive NBA Finals appearances. When asked how his team would recover from a sluggish start to this year’s championship series, a 113-91 loss to the Warriors in Game 1, the Cavs star emphasized one of his secrets to his success is ignoring critics and keeping his focus on the court. Allen Robinson Limited Jersey Myers added, We’ve got a little bit of a runway here to see if things change and when he feels better, we’ll make that determination, but right now, it’s unfortunately status quo. Meaning, he’s doing what he can, but we’re not able to say, I’m not able to say, and most importantly, he’s not able to say he’s able to coach yet and we’re trying and he’s trying. Kerr, who is dealing with complications from two back surgeries he had in 2015, has not coached the Warriors since April 19, in their Game 2 […]

49ers GM Trent Baalke fired; coach Chip Kelly learns same fate

Chip Kelly met with 49ers ownership following Sunday’s loss to the Seahawks and learned his fate. It was the same as that of general manager Trent Baalke, who was told he was relieved of his duties in San Francisco hours earlier. Baalke confirmed the news to San Francisco radio station KNBR on Sunday. It was the right thing to do. This is a class organization, Baalke, who had been with the 49ers for 12 years, told the radio station. Roethlisberger should also be wary of the Kansas City weather. He’s been terrific in the cold over his career, but this week, Bell sets up as a more reliable element in those conditions. The Chiefs, meanwhile, sit as a very vulnerable run defense. They’re not as bad as Miami, but they still allowed 4.4 yards per carry in the regular season. They’ve lost a key player who could help contain Bell as a runner and receiver in inside linebacker Derrick Johnson. […]

Prosecutor in Adam Jones case wants to know NFL’s punishment before acting

Matthew Slater Mens Jersey The prosecutor in court proceedings against Adam Pacman Jones for recent incidents in Cincinnati said he’s waiting to see what if anything the NFL does before proceeding with the case. The Bengals cornerback faces charges of assault, disorderly conduct, obstructing official business and harassment with a bodily substance for his alleged actions early Jan. 3 at first a downtown hotel and later at the Hamilton County Jail. The harassment with a bodily substance charge Jones allegedly spit on a nurse is a felony charge that could lead to a one-year prison sentence if he is convicted. Jones’ attorneys last week waived his right to a speedy trial, and the judge ruled proceedings would continue Feb. 10. Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters told Cincinnati.com he wants to know how the NFL will handle the case. Nick Castellanos Mens Jersey Lynch and Shanahan, as York mentioned, both have ties to the Broncos. The former as a player and […]

Marshawn Lynch, Skittles and Scotland what’s not to love

Move over Loch Ness Monster there’s a new Beast Mode invading your territory. We’ve found out why Marshawn Lynch, mythical and legendary as ever, was in Scotland popping dangerous wheelies on a bike a couple weeks ago. The retired Seahawks running back was there to spread his Skittles love with a Scottish Lowlands village called Houston and ask them what they felt about Super Bowl 51 being played there next Sunday. The only problem is, you know, the game is in Houston, Texas, United States, and not Houston, Renfrewshire, United Kingdom. Game Mens Jonathan Bernier Jersey Cue the funny disbelief and whatever the villagers said, too. A few history lessons and a few expletives later, Lynch no doubt left Scotland a changed man. The media, meanwhile, is still expecting him to not talk to them at the Super Bowl. That’s when Moseley came in. Jamie who became acquainted with Moseley earlier in his broadcast career asked him to come on […]

2017 MLB All-Star voting: Bryce Harper continues to lead NL balloting

Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper continues to lead all NL All-Star vote-getters in the most recent update of balloting released by MLB on Monday. Paul Martin Elite Jersey Harper, batting .320/.428/.616 with 15 homers and 46 RBIs, became the first NL player to push past 2 million votes, having drawn 2,132,795, according to the update. Nats second baseman Daniel Murphy has the second-most votes at this point at 1,745,231, and Washington teammate Ryan Zimmerman, the NL’s top hitter at .365, leads first basemen with 1,060,532 votes. Cubs outfielder Jason Heyward, third among outfield vote-getters, has the slimmest lead among players currently holding starting spots, some 58,000 votes ahead of teammate Ben Zobrist. Mo Alexander Elite Jersey It’s really important. It’s realizing that, when these African-American middle schoolers, they look on TV and they look at the NBA and it’s all African-American guys, they watch football and you’ve got a lot of African-American guys playing. But they flip to a baseball game […]

Super Bowl 51 is a homecoming for trio of players

As special as the Super Bowl is to most players, it means even more when you can play for an NFL title in your hometown. That is the case for a trio of players this year as New England’s Eric Rowe and Martellus Bennett and Atlanta’s Jake Matthews get to play in Super Bowl 51 just a few miles from where they grew up. Fitzgerald makes a good point, especially after the Cardinals played in the 2012 Hall of Fame Game without a single Hall of Famer in that year’s class. The Cardinals do have former quarterback Kurt Warner in this year’s class, but the foundation for Warner’s Hall of Fame resume is winning a Super Bowl championship with the St. Louis Rams. With the Rams in Los Angeles and former Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson headlining the class, the NFL clearly went with the safe choice by choosing the Cardinals to represent Warner while choosing the Cowboys to honor […]

MVP Matt Ryan was the biggest winner in “Madden” ratings throughout the season.

Authentic Ryan Quigley Jersey The best (and really only) way to get Brady uncomfortable is to get in his face without blitzing. Few defenses are capable of doing that. Jarrett, coming off a strong second season up front as that “other” Clemson 2015 draftee after Beasley, will be critical to the game plan of getting Brady off the spot and into bad, rushed throws. New England’s offensive line has rebounded well from last year’s mess in Denver, but Andrews is its most vulnerable blocker. The Falcons have a much better shot at pressuring Brady there than the edge against either tackle, Nate Solder or Marcus Cannon. They need to get to Brady a few times, or it will be a long night of him sitting back and picking them apart. Authentic Kirk Gibson Jersey MVP Matt Ryan was the biggest winner in “Madden” ratings throughout the season. He began with an 84 Overall rating in “Madden NFL 17,” which ranked […]
