Lakers’ LeBron James makes All-NBA third team

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error The last time James did not make the All-NBA first team was in 2007, one of his two NBA second-team berths.Jumping ahead of James as forwards on the second team were Golden State’s Kevin Durant and Toronto’s Kawhi Leonard, joining Philadelphia’s Joel Embiid, Portland’s Damian Lillard and Boston’s Kyrie Irving. James was joined on the third team by Oklahoma City’s Russell Westbrook, Detroit’s Blake Griffin, Utah’s Rudy Gobert and Charlotte’s Kemba Walker.The Lakers are one of the teams with salary cap space this summer in the hunt for fortune-changing talent. Durant, Leonard, Irving and Walker are all expected to be unrestricted free agents this summer, presuming Durant and Irving opt out of the final year on their existing contracts.

Golden State’s Steph Curry, Oklahoma City’s Paul George and Denver’s Nikola Jokic rounded out the top five.When he played, James lived up to his reputation: He averaged 27.4 points, 8.5 rebounds and 8.3 assists to lead the Lakers in all three categories. He averaged the most minutes per game of anyone on the team (35.2) and got to the free-throw line (7.6 FTA) more than anyone else.And yet his ability to stay on the court was hampered by the most severe injury of his career: a groin strain suffered in a Christmas Day win over the Warriors that kept him out for 17 consecutive games, during which the Lakers fell from among the top teams in the Western Conference to struggling amid a pack of postseason hopefuls. Even James’ return in late January couldn’t boost the team, rankled by trade rumors and chemistry issues, back into the playoffs.James ended up playing only 55 games, and the Lakers’ front office decided to shut him down early with six games remaining.Related Articles Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers The three-time champion in Miami and Cleveland is still regarded as one of the league’s best players: He was voted one of the captains in February’s All-Star Game by fans, alongside Antetokounmpo. This season saw James bypass several NBA greats to move into fourth place on the all-time scoring list, most notably Wilt Chamberlain and Michael Jordan. His 15 All-NBA berths tie him with Bryant, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Tim Duncan for the most in league history.

It’s the only time James has been a third-teamer, breaking a streak of 11 consecutive first-team appearances, but given that he played just 55 games for the 37-45 Lakers, it’s a sign of the esteem for the four-time league MVP that he drew a spot as one of the game’s 15 best.Of 100 voters, 85 placed James on their ballot, with 73 placing him on the third team. James received no first-team votes. It’s the first time the Lakers, star-laden for much of the franchise’s history, have had an All-NBA honoree since 2013 when Dwight Howard and Kobe Bryant both made the cut.last_img read more

Patrick Mahomes plays 1 drive instead of 1 quarter after Chiefs’ touchdown

first_imgPatrick Mahomes only needed one drive Saturday to lead the Chiefs to the end zone.Mahomes was originally slated to play the entire first quarter against the Bengals. It was an unusual move to start the reigning NFL MVP in the preseason opener, and Mahomes didn’t need much time to show he’s in midseason form. His only drive tied the score at 7-7 in the first quarter before backup quarterbacks Chad Henne and rookie Kyle Shurmur took over under center. He completed all four of his pass attempts for 66 yards, including an impressive 36-yard completion to tight end Travis Kelce.

Our MMA Fighter Roberto Soldic fights in Russia before Vladimir Putin

What channel is Titans vs. Texans on today? Schedule, time for Week 17 NFL game

first_imgMORE: Watch Titans vs. Texans live with fuboTV (7-day free trial)Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson has been listed as questionable for Sunday’s matchup with a back injury. Watson has been terrific for Houston this season, throwing for 3,852 yards, 26 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. He’s also dazzled with his rushing attack as he’s gained 413 yards on the ground and ran in another seven touchdowns. The Titans saw a resurgence midway through the season after benching quarterback Marcus Mariota in favor of Ryan Tannehill. Tennessee went on to win six of its next seven games, but has since cooled down after dropping its last two games. Houston and Tennessee met just recently in Week 15 which saw the Texans eke out a 24-21 win in Nashville. A win by the Titans would almost guarantee a matchup with the Chiefs in the wild-card round at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City. Houston would then host the Bills in the other AFC wild-card game.Here’s everything you need to know to watch the Titans vs. Texans game on Sunday, including kickoff time, TV channels and a full Week 17 NFL schedule.MORE: NFL playoff clinching scenarios for Week 17What channel is Titans vs. Texans on today?TV channel (national): CBSTV channel (Nashville): WTVFTV channel (Houston): KHOULive stream: fuboTV (7-day free trial)The Titans vs. Texans game will be shown on CBS to a majority of viewers across the country.
