LeBron James Responds to Isaiah Stewart’s Claims of Intentionally Elbowing Him

After their recent altercation, LeBron James has now spoken out about Isaiah Stewart‘s claims that he intentionally elbowed the Piston in the face. In a recent post-game interview, James talked about meeting Stewart back on the court, “I don’t go into a game and make it an individual thing.” After hearing about Stewart’s response to the altercation doubling down on the fact that James purposely elbowing him in the face, James explained, “I saw his comments today and he felt it was intentional or wasn’t an accident. The actual chop down was on purpose to get his arm off me, that part was on purpose, but the point of my hand hitting his face was not on purpose. You can literally go through numerous plays in the NBA where guys were chopping down on guys’ arms or hands trying to get them off o...

LaVar Ball Thinks LaMelo Ball Can Be Youngest MVP in the NBA

It comes as no surprise that LaMelo Ball has caught the eye of basketball fans and critics everywhere. Perhaps one of his greatest champions is outspoken and boisterous father LaVar Ball. At only 20 years old, LaMelo holds an impressive NBA career with the Charlotte Hornets. In the past 11 games, LaMelo has averaged 18.8 points, 9.9 rebounds, 9.4 assists and 1.9 steals. TMZ recently caught up with his father, LaVar Ball who when asked if LaMelo can be the league’s youngest MVP, he responded, “Do I think he can win it?

LaVar has said that in order for LaMelo to be considered in the running, he would need to first win...

LeBron James Fined $15,000 USD for Sam Cassell Celebration in Pacers Win

When it comes to celebrating on court, not everything goes. The NBA revealed that is fining LeBron James $15,000 USD for making an “obscene gesture” in the Los Angeles Lakers‘ latest match against Indiana Pacers. After drilling a huge three-pointer that sealed the Lakers’ win in overtime, pushing them to take the game with 124-116 final score, James celebrated with the classic Sam Cassell “Big Balls” celebration as he made his way back down the court. The NBA has been recently fining its players for using this act as a celebration, which has been widely popular lately across the sports world and the league. Toronto Raptors guard Fred VanVleet was recently fined the same amount when he hit the Cassell move earlier this month. The game against the Indiana Pacers saw James drop a season-high ...

Yesterday, the Lakers lost to the Knicks 106-100 and Lakers’ reporter Mike Trudell said that it was part in due to the fact that AD still made the decision to go on the court despite not feeling well. He said, “Davis basically had to sit in his room all day, hoping his fever would break. He arrived late to the arena, and said it was almost like AAU where he just showed up and had to start pl...

How Pedri Became European Football’s Brightest Hope

It was just after 11PM, on a hot and humid night in Tokyo, when Pedri’s season came to an end. The young footballer stood in the middle of the International Stadium Yokohama, having brought to a close a 12 month run, beginning with his breakthrough at Barcelona and ending in an Olympic silver medal, 72 games later. In that year, Pedri’s life had changed entirely. The 18-year-old had gone from playing for his local team in Spain’s Segunda Division to appearing alongside Lionel Messi every week. Since then, the accolades, like the matches, have kept coming. Most recently, Pedri completed a rare feat, winning both the Golden Boy award (for the world’s best player under the age of 21) in the same year he was nominated for the Ballon d’Or (for the world’s best player, full stop) in the same yea...
