James will be playing for the Los Angeles Lakers on a four-year, $153.3 million contract. He will try to bring the storied franchise another championship.
For the third time in his career, LeBron James is changing teams. Here’s everything you need to know about his decision to join the Lakers.
James leaves his hometown team as a free agent for the second time in his career. Four years ago, James had stated his intention to finish his career with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Whether the four-time MVP and 14-time All-Star does that or not, he certainly has left his mark on his city.
James thanked his home area in an Instagram story. He wrote in text overlaying a photo from the Cavaliers’ 2016 NBA title victory parade, Thank you Northeast Ohio for an incredible 4 seasons. This will always be home.
It was a better reveal than Kirk Cousins’ from last year when he spiked a tiny hacky sack (maybe?) into a cardboard box structure. The Rams had much better form.
I respect why people are doing what they’re doing, and they’re doing it for different reasons, and that’s OK.
Moore will be counted on to boost a Carolina receiving corps that’s light on playmakers, but includes the presence of emerging talents Devin Funchess and Curtis Samuel alongside veteran addition Torrey Smith. Things will be even easier for Ridley, who will be given the chance to thrive when defenses turn their attention to All-Pro Julio Jones — assuming Jones’ most recent contract impasse ends the way most do.
Smash Mouth decided they needed to defend Durant — and the attempted beef was on.
Whatever ALL of the safety records are.
I didn’t even know what the records were when I started this, but I want more safeties. They’re miserable for the opposing team’s players and fans — among the most miserable things you can allow in football because you not only give up two points, you punt the ball back. Whoever came up with that provision is RUTHLESS. And that’s my drug right there, I want to see safety upon safety piled on these unfortunate offenses.
A few days before the beginning of the 2016 season, there was a report that Luck was dealing with some labrum fraying and the Colts were trying to dial back his throwing reps in practice.
No. He’s all good, Grigson said, according to Colts.com. I mean the guy’s thrown a zillion balls. The media’s seen it.
Colts general manager Chris Ballard said from the start that the plan wasn’t to have Luck begin the season on the PUP (physically unable to perform) list. He held that promise by pulling the quarterback from the list on Sept. 2 after Luck passed a physical.
If Luck hadn’t been taken off the list before the beginning of the regular season, he would’ve been ineligible to play in the first six weeks of the season. With Luck already ruled out for Week 6, the transaction didn’t do much.
Conversely, Thomas knows he’s irreplaceable to the team right now — and is trying to ensure he gets one last major payday. This is his best shot, especially coming off a strong season that saw Thomas named to his sixth Pro Bowl, and being named a second-team All-Pro.
In April the sides weren’t on the same page, but the Seahawks were under the impression there would be no holdout from Thomas.
Seahawks GM John Schneider says at his charity event tonight he has been told by Earl Thomas’ reps that Thomas will not hold out this year even if he does not have a new contract.
That would have also left the Steelers with an extra $68 million to spend in 2017 — the four-year value of Brown’s most recent contract extension. That’s money the team could use to lock Bell into a long-term deal rather than risk losing him after saddling him with the franchise tag the past two years. Of course, that would put plenty of pressure on Bell to replace Brown’s production, though he probably wouldn’t have live-streamed Mike Tomlin calling the Patriots assholes like Brown did.
Markelle Fultz was on the trade block Thursday night as the NBA draft unfolded, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported.
According to the report, the 76ers had internal conversations about making a package deal with their No. 10 and 26 picks in order to move into the top five.
However, teams reportedly weren’t interested in a player who is relearning to shoot and coming off a severe shoulder injury.
The Crossover Culture Fortune LP perform exceptionally well, especially indoors but you may want to break them in some before you play a series of competitive five-on-five games. Once you do, Crossover Culture’s unique, super-responsive LP Energy System will give you more than enough shock absorption and the lockdown also satisfies so your foot won’t be sliding all over the place. Traction might be the only minor issue from a performance side.

The Crossover Culture Fortune LP is available in three different colorways, going for a $110, a price point commiserate with the technology and quality materials used, on Eastbay and Tradehome Shoe Stores retail locations.
Gregory took the mantle as the lone remaining original employee following the retirements of public relations director and Vice President Gary Wright in 2009, and director of video Thom Fermstad in 2011.
George re-signing for the max would be one of the great victories of Sam Presti’s tenure as Oklahoma City’s GM — validation of the precise, development-focused culture he has built and of the giant risk in dealing for a star on an expiring contract with well-publicized eyes for L.A.
The stakes are enormous. If George re-signs, the Thunder have a two-star path to somewhere for at least another season or two. (There have been reports George might sign a one-plus-one deal to re-enter free agency next summer.
