LeBron James fufills bet, arrives to game wearing Cubs jersey

CHICAGO: For one night only, LeBron James wore a Chicago No. 23 jersey Friday night. James fulfilled his bet with Dwyane Wade and arrived at United Center dressed head to toe in Cubs gear after Chicago beat the Indians in the World Series. Wade set the terms of the bet in October and James quickly agreed. Friday he fulfilled his debt. Wade met James as he arrived at the arena and the two shared laughs walking through the tunnels of the arena while a sea of cameras followed them. The jersey had the authentic World Series patch on the arm and “James 23” stitched across the back,...

Bulls 111, Cavs 105; Jason Lloyd's 13 thoughts on the end to the Cavs' honeymoon phase

CHICAGO: Thirteen thoughts for 13 baskets by LeBron James in Friday’s 111-105 loss to the Chicago Bulls, extending the Cavs’ losing skid to three… 1.     When the Cavaliers smashed the Detroit Pistons 104-81 on Nov. 18, LeBron James was genuinely excited about the play on both sides of the ball. The Cavs clogged the lane on Andre Drummond and limited the Pistons to 26 points in the paint. James called it “the best we’ve played all year” on offense and defense. 2.     The players celebrated the convincing win and went their separate ways. With no games for five days,...

Kings fall apart late, lose to Celtics 97-92

Kings fall apart late, lose to Celtics 97-92

The Kings really could have had this one. The Sacramento Kings started tonight’s difficult road game in Boston with their oft-criticized, rarely efficient DeMarcus Cousins – Kosta Koufos frontcourt, and early returns were what they have been all year. The Celtics got off to a hot start, built up a double-digit lead, the Kings looked a step or two slow, and left it up to the bench unit to drag the team back into this one. Stop me if you’ve heard this before. Credit to the Kings’ bench, because that is exactly what they did. Dave Joerger brought in Ty Lawson, Garrett Temple, Omri...

Brandon Ingram wasn’t happy with scoring a new career-high because the Lakers didn’t win

Los Angeles’ young wing showed progress on Friday, even in defeat. Los Angeles Lakers wing Brandon Ingram scored a career-high 17 points against the Toronto Raptors, but there is only one scoring number the rookie cares about: his team’s total. “That doesn’t really matter if we don’t win tonight,” Ingram said of his scoring achievement (as transcribed by Joey Ramirez of Lakers.com). Some fans will probably appreciate Ingram’s unfazed reaction to his new career-high, but it doesn’t mean they can’t also get excited about what he showed. Ingram needed 16 shots to get there,...
