Lebron James Nails Game Winning Buzzer Beater

Published

on

Lebron James finished the night with the 38 points to take 3-0 series lead against the Toronto Raptors.

His last two points will be the only anyone remembers from that game. With less than 5 seconds left in tied game, James stepped back on the left wing and ended the game with a floater.

Tie game, down one,” James said. “I live for those moments.”

“I’ve been doing that since I was like six, seven, eight years old,” James said. “Maybe even before that. There’s a picture floating around of me beside a Little Tikes hoop with a saggy Pamper on and I was doing it back then and all the way up until now, at 33.

“Things that you dream about, that you get those opportunities and I’ve been fortunate enough to get a handful of those in some of the biggest moments in my career.”

The Raptors twitter account was not in the mood for celebrations after the shot.

“I ran out of words a while ago,” said Kyle Korver, trying to describe the shot.  “I’ve seen him shoot that shot, that game-winner, countless times when he’s messing around in shootaround and practice. It’s always like, why would he shoot a shot like that — to win a playoff game?

“Unbelievable play. He did it again. He’s been so huge in those moments for us all year.”

James had a message to his fans at home watching and thinking about attempting the shot.

“It is very difficult,” James said, smiling. “Don’t try it at home.”

DeMarcus Cousins Shows Off His Steph Curry Impression

Published

DeMarcus Cousins will be out for the first half of the season recovering from his Achilles injury. Cousins signed a one-year with the Warriors and is already practicing shooting like Steph Curry.

A video was posted of Boogie draining 3 points in shoots in practice.

When the Associated Press (h/t USA Today) asked him about the signing, Curry said Cousins should make the Dubs more versatile:

“It’s interesting because nobody going into free agency thought about DeMarcus as an option, then all of a sudden he found his way onto our team. So for us to have a new dynamic, a new look, whenever he’s fully healthy it should be amazing. I think we got better. Obviously we lost some pieces that were very vital to us winning a championship but you’ve got to evolve, you’ve got to find different things to focus on as you’re trying to repeat, so it should be exciting.”

Cousins ended the year with a 37% three-point percentage. That number can go up with the spacing on the floor the Warriors can create.

The Miami Hurricanes Will Debut New Environmental Uniforms For LSU Season Opener

Published

on

Last year the Miami Hurricanes brought the swag back to college football with the Turnover Chain. Now it seems that school is ready to make an impact outside of the football with their new uniforms.

The U will debut the first-ever uniforms made with repurposed and upcycled materials. Creating a unique look for the Canes, the Miami x Parley A1 uniform features “The U’s” home jersey orange colorway that is accompanied by accents that are an ode to the cause to end plastic pollution of the oceans. The jersey sleeve caps and the stripes white pants feature a wave print that fuses Miami’s signature dark green with the EQT green colorway that adidas x Parley has become synonymous with.

“Our players and staff are excited to wear the new Adidas Parley jerseys and gear for our season opener. We’re also excited that Adidas and Parley are teaming up with UM to help promote sustainability around the world,” head football coach Mark Richt said. “Community service has always been an integral part of our football program, and this partnership with Adidas and Parley helps us continue those efforts.”

Starting August 27, the Miami x Parley A1 uniforms will be auctioned off with the proceeds going to the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science to launch a fund for educational research.

The Hurricanes will wear the uniforms for their season opener against Louisiana State University at the 2018 AdvoCare Classic at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on Sept. 2.

Steph Curry and Klay Thompson want to stay in Warriors uniforms their entire careers. Both players want to stay with the team that drafted them.

Curry was on the Bill Simmons podcast recently and asked if he hopes to retire with the team, Curry said: “For sure I do. This is home. This is where I want to be, for obvious reasons.”

Curry was on the Bill Simmons podcast recently and spoke about his intentions to stay with his championship team.

“I love the Bay Area, man,” he said. “The only reason I go home now is if my sister’s getting married or to go play the Hornets for that one game, so I haven’t really been back much. I haven’t put my mind there.”

Curry, a five-time All-Star, averaged 26.4 points and 6.1 assists in 51 games for the Warriors in 2017-18. He signed a five-year, $201 million contract extension with Golden State in July 2017.

Klay is going into his contract year and spoke about doing whatever he could to keep the band together.

“Absolutely,” he said. “Playing for one team your whole career is definitely special. Only so many guys have done it in professional sports, so it’ll be a goal of mine. Hopefully it all works out.” Thompson continued, “It’s so far away,” Thompson said of his pending free agency. “Anything I can do to stay with the Warriors is first and foremost. God willing, it happens. If not, I don’t even think about that.”
