LeBron James doesn’t view Warriors as Cavs’ rival

Don’t ask LeBron James if he’s ready for a rivalry clash Monday against the Warriors. He doesn’t believe they exist in the NBA.

Even though the two teams have faced off and split the last two championships, James feels like the Cavs and Warriors are just two great teams co-existing.

“I don’t think we have a rival in our game today,” James said after Cavs practice Sunday, via ESPN.com. “We’ve had two great Finals appearances the last two years, but I had the same with San Antonio when I was in Miami. We weren’t rivals. And I think I played those guys more, so I wouldn’t look at it as rivals.”

James has heaped praise on the Warriors in recent seasons as the two squads battled for supremacy. James paid them the ultimate compliment Sunday to sum up his feelings.

Rose has been inconsistent this season for a team that dropped to 17-21 with what, indeed, was a humiliating home loss to the Pelicans.

Acquired in the offseason from the Bulls, Rose, 28, is averaging 17.3 points, 4.5 assists and 3.9 rebounds in 33 games this season.

Also, we didn’t appreciate the shot at “Air Bud” but … can’t really defend it.

Anyway, we’ll end this with the woke-est line in the trailer, which had literally never occurred to me until watching it.

“The movie doesn’t even take place in space.” Golden State has been playing better than Cleveland recently, as the defending champions are still struggling Patriots Cheap Jerseys to find their footing with key players shuffling in and out of the lineup.

The Cavaliers should be healthy Monday night, but it will still Soccer Cheap Jerseys be tough walking out of Oracle Arena with a win.

The ’Wait, what?’ All-Stars: MLB’s most surprising statistical leaders so far in 2017

The first month of the MLB season always produces a handful of odd statistics, but these things typically have ways of evening out.

Remember when Chris Shelton hit 10 homers in 25 games for the Tigers in April 2006 and then only six in his final 90 games of the season? Yeah. It happens.

Why that’s surprising: Dyson was expected to set plenty of career highs this season, his first as a full-time starter in the majors. This category is a bit surprising, though, considering the speedster had been hit by a pitch exactly nine times in 1,539 plate appearances heading into this season.

Thursday afternoon, Pillar tweeted a statement acknowledging he had used inappropriate language toward Motte.

By doing so I had just helped extend the use of a word that has no place in baseball, in sports or anywhere in society today, he wrote. I’m completely and utterly embarrassed and feel horrible to ahve put the fans, my teammates and the Blue Jays organization in this position.

Pillar added that he has apologized to Motte personally and extended that apology to the Braves, their fans, and the LGBTQ community.

This is not who I am and [I] will use this as an opportunity to better myself, he concluded.

Pillar and Motte’s incident wasn’t the only heated moment of the game. The very next inning, Jose Bautista flipped his bat after a homer even though Atlanta was up, 8-3. That led to the benches clearing yet again.

Emotions will be high again when the teams face off Thursday.

MLB’s $700K helps fund Marlins’ trust for Jose Fernandez’s daughter, report says

Marlins president David Samson wouldn’t comment on the insurance settlement but confirmed that the Marlins and owner Jeffrey Loria made a significant contribution last weekend to Fernandez’s family.

The focus for us and Jeffrey is making sure Maritza and Penelope were taken care of in the aftermath of such an unimaginable tragedy,’ Samson said.

Although Fernandez, 24 at the time of his death, had $6.5 million in career earnings, his estate is facing negligence and wrongful-death lawsuits from relatives of the two passengers on Fernandez’s boat who also were killed in the accident.

It’s unclear whether the money earmarked by the Marlins for the trust would be protected from those lawsuits.

Earlier this year, Jose Fernandez’s attorney told The Herald that the pitcher’s estate does not exceed $2 million.’

The next stop on MLB’s hat-sales cash grab: Father’s Day (only 19 days away!), then the Fourth of July.

You know the drill: pink for Mother’s Day ’ camouflage for Memorial Day ’ hold that thought.

It’s that last, most recent (and solemn) holiday that finally appeared to move a few players to push back (via UniWatch.com), led by Dodgers pitcher Brandon McCarthy’s sarcastic tweet to start Memorial Day, connecting soldiers [who] died protecting our country and buying MLB-licensed hats to say thank you.

When followers noted that proceeds from the sale of the camouflage-themed gear go to veterans charities, McCarthy questioned: Seems like the sort of thing you’d mention on the product page?
