Kyrie Irving says call to LeBron James was needed ‘to move forward’

NBA JERSEYS
Kyrie Irving said his phone call to LeBron James earlier this year to apologize was necessary in part because he "didn't address the situation" while the two of them were teammates in Cleveland. "Well, I think that, you know, it takes a very, very strong individual to replay a lot of the experiences that you've had," Irving told ESPN's Rachel Nichols. "A lot of anger that you've had built up, where you didn't address the situation and you allowed it to fester. And then it was just combustion. "But for me, it's just ... apologizing, yeah, that was a step for me, just to move forward in my life." When asked about his phone call at All-Star Weekend's media day Saturday in Charlotte, North Carolina, Irving had far less to…

A quarterback buyer’s market? Why this NFL offseason is rare

A quarterback buyer’s market? Why this NFL offseason is rare

NFL JERSEYS
This year, for the first time in recent memory, the NFL's quarterback supply seems to be outpacing demand. An informal survey of agents and team executives around the league found the list of teams looking for a starting quarterback to be a surprisingly short one, replete with caveats. It includes the Miami Dolphins, assuming they're moving on from Ryan Tannehill. It includes the Jacksonville Jaguars,cheap nfl nike jerseys from china assuming they're moving on from Blake Bortles. It includes Washington, assuming Alex Smith's injury is going to keep him out for most or all of the 2019 season. It might possibly include the New York Giants and Cincinnati Bengals, if those teams decide they want to move on from their current starters, though no one's entirely sure that will be…

How it has gone wrong with Antonio Brown and the Steelers

NFL JERSEYS
A tardy Antonio Brown slipped into another Pittsburgh Steelers team meeting through the backdoor. Steelers coach Mike Tomlin revealed to his team what most already knew in regard to his prolific star receiver. "[Tomlin] essentially told the group, we'll tolerate it now because of what he brings on the field, but the minute production stops, you don't overlook it," said one ex-Steeler who played with Brown for three seasons, recalling a story that multiple players confirmed.nike nfl jerseys cheap china That philosophy proved easier said than done. Brown's production -- 100-plus catches and 1,200-plus receiving yards in six consecutive seasons -- hasn't stopped, but the team reached a boiling point. Brown drew the ire of the organization in Week 17 when he skipped Saturday's game preparation, prompting Tomlin to bench…

Danny Woodhead sees Patriots-Chargers matchup from unique view

NFL JERSEYS
Running back Danny Woodhead spent three seasons with the Patriots (2010-2012) and four with the Chargers (2013-2016), so he views a Patriots-Chargers matchup in the divisional round of the AFC playoffs through a different lens than most. One of the first things that comes to his mind is how the Patriots might combat one of the Chargers’ greatest strengths: an effective pass rush led by Melvin Ingram and Joey Bosa.nike nfl jerseys cheap china “When I was in New England, something we did a lot of times, we minimized pass-rushers, and you can do that in different ways,” he said. “Maybe that’s get the ball out quick. Maybe that’s chip the defensive ends early. Everyone would talk about how ‘they'll get to the quarterback,’ but there are ways to minimize…

Luke Walton: Lakers ‘need more passion’ from Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram

NBA JERSEYS
After a 108-86 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves dropped the Los Angeles Lakers to 1-5 without LeBron James this season, Lakers coach Luke Walton said he wants to see more fire from his team's two former lottery picks, Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram, as they try to make it through James' absence. "They're trying, but they're young," Walton said of Ball and Ingram, both just 21 years old. "At some point, we need more passion. We need more fight. And that's not scoring more.

Fantasy NBA Daily Notes: Riding the Kings’ pace to success

NBA JERSEYS
An impressive offensive season continued over the weekend with the dynastic Golden State Warriors and the upstart Sacramento Kings combining for an NBA record 41 3-pointers on Saturday night in a compelling contest that saw the teams total 250 points in regulation.

There’s much to ponder over the future of Texans’ defense

NFL JERSEYS
And the second was the fact Colts running back Marlon Mack did what no other back did this season against the Texans, including Mack himself in one previous try in 2018. "We just dug a hole for ourselves. ... Any time you dig a hole like that against a great quarterback it's tough, in the playoffs it's hard to come out of a hole like that," Texans cornerback Kareem Jackson said. "The better team won today." In the end, the Colts piled up 422 yards against the Houston defense, went 9-of-14 on third down (that included 6-of-6 in the first half) and Indianapolis scored all three of its touchdowns over its first four possessions. But it was Mack that may have bruised the Texans' collective pride the most, and it…
