Lebron James Would Sign Kaepernick If He Owned A Team

Published

on

It is clear that no NFL team will sign Colin Kaepernick. It doesn’t matter how many injuries they have at QB or how poorly their QBs are performing. Many people have spoken out about the NFL treatment of Kap. Even celebrities have chimed in on the topic from Jay-Z, John Meyer, to Steph Curry. Lebron James has also been outspoken about the Colin Kaepernick clearly being blackballed by the NFL owners.

Lebron James spoke to ESPN about the NFL the blackballing Kap. Teams that desperately need a quarterback have refused to sign Kap. The Broncos have championship defense but are 3-7 thanks to their QB play. Broncos QB Trevor Sieman has been sacked 25 times and thrown 10 INTs. The Jets are fine with taking Ls with Josh McCown. McCown only has 4 wins as the leader of the Jets and has been sacked over 35 times.

“I love football, but I’m not part of the NFL. I don’t represent the NFL. I don’t know their rules and regulations. But I do know Kap is getting a wrong doing, I do know that. Just watching, he’s an NFL player.” said James “He’s an NFL player and you see all these other quarterbacks out there and players out there that get all these second and third chances that are nowhere near as talented as him. It just feels like he’s been blackballed out of the NFL. So, I definitely do not respect that.”

Sure the GMs will find a way to blame everyone except the QB. It is the poor offensive line, the other team outplayed us, or we have to go back to watch the tape. Owners stay quiet in public so they don’t have to get their hands dirty, but everyone who watches the games know what the deal.

“The only reason I could say he’s not on a team is because the way he took a knee,” James said. “That’s the only reason. I watch football every Sunday, every Thursday, every Monday night. I see all these quarterbacks — first-string, second-team, third-team quarterbacks — that play sometimes when the starter gets hurt or are starters that play. Kap is better than a lot of those guys. Let’s just be honest.”

It’s hard to say otherwise with so many NFL teams in need of quarterbacks. The Bills just allowed Nathan Peterman to threw five interceptions in the first half. Peterman was the first quarterback since the 1970 AFL-NFL to throw five interceptions in a half.

At the end of the day, the NFL is a private business. Owners are more willing to have teams under .500 than to take a chance on Kap. But for Kap his actions has transcended the sport and that’s still worth something.

Rumor: Kawhi Leonard And Jimmy Butler Don’t Want To Join Lebron

Published

on

Kawhi Leonard and Jimmy Butler will both be the top NBA free agents in the summer of 2019.

Both players have been linked to possible joining Lebron James and the Lakers in 2019. Now according to The Ringers Kevin O’Connor both players are not interested in wearing the Purple and Gold.

“There are whispers around the league that neither Jimmy Butler nor Kawhi Leonard wants to play with LeBron, and sources I’ve talked to would be shocked if Klay Thompson left Golden State,” wrote Conner.

Leonard has expressed the possibility of him resigning with the Raptors. Before he was traded to the Raptors, Leonard was rumored to want to join one of the LA teams.

“I want to play here,” Leonard said. “I came in with an open mind. I want to do great things … focus on this year. If you’re looking toward the future, you’re going to trip over the present.”

Butler on the other hand clear wants out of Minnesota. He wants to sign with a team that has enough cap space to sign another big named free agent.

If the Lakers can not add Butler or Leonard is would be a setback for the Lakers. The team has the cap space to add one more big named free agent to join James. Magic Johnson wanted to sign Paul George in the offseason but he decided to re-sign with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Klay Thompson: We Want To Three Peat

Published

on

The Golden State Warriors are spending their last year in Oakland before moving to San Franciso.

The Dubs have won 3 of the last 4 championships. Warriors guard Klay Thompson wants the Warriors to win a three peat before the team leaves the Bay.

“We want to do it for the fans of Oakland. Been so loyal to us for 40-plus years, whatever it’s been since they’ve been in Oracle. So that definitely helps with this season.” said Thompson “It’s leaving a big legacy behind in Oakland because people might not get to see us as much in San Francisco. And just enjoying this every night.”

“We have such a special group. We play in front of such amazing fans. And every game is so much fun because it’s such an amazing atmosphere. It’s not like we’re playing in front of six or seven thousand people a night. It’s sold out. It doesn’t matter who we play, preseason, Finals. It’s easy to come to work when you’ve got a fan base like we have.”

History also figures to be a motivating factor since the 2000-02 Los Angeles Lakers with Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant was the only team to accomplish the feat since Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls did so twice in the 1990s.
