It’s on: LeBron James vs. Kevin Durant in flag football.
Yes, at the very time that NBA players are being asked to sign insurance waivers to work at NBA facilities, the Miami Heat forward is following through on his challenge to Durant with a flag-football game Wednesday night in Akron.
How high are the stakes?
High enough that the game will be streamed live.
“If you ain’t there then, you just ain’t there,” James said in the promotional video.
With Wednesday's game against Kevin Durant's team, football season apparently will be coming to an end for LeBron James. (MCT, file)
Actually, you don’t have to be there, with the stream available at:
As for actual starting time?
It is listed at 7 p.m., 7:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. at various websites linked to James.
For James, it is the conclusion (we think) of a lockout whirlwind courtship of football, ranging from suggestions of NFL tryouts to a courtship by Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll that included a p...

Remember this past Sunday when Stevie Johnson celebrated a touchdown by mocking Plaxico Burress shooting himself in the leg? Johnson caught a bunch of heat for that, as well as a $10,000 fine from Roger Goodell (You Must NOT Embarrass the SHIELD!). Well, when LeBron James scored a touchdown playing flag football, he decided to celebrate by mocking Johnson mocking Burress.
LeBron James announced Wednesday morning that he will indeed go ahead and play a competitive game of flag football with Kevin Durant tonight. And it's going to be aired live starting at 7:30 P.M.

Last night LeBron and Durant finally met on the flag football field. Last month Durant had played in a flag football game with a local fraternity at Oklahoma State, and following the game LeBron threw out a challenge. LeBron backed up his words and his team won the game 70-63 over Durant. The game was played at the University of Akron and it was dubbed "LeBron's...
There is going to be no getting around the LeBron James story once the 2011-12 season begins. Sure, the free agent hype surrounding Chris Paul, Dwight Howard and Deron Williams will take headlines during the season nationally. Those free agent campaigns seem to pale in comparison to the anticipation that was James' free agency in the summer of 2010.
LeBron opened himself up to...
James expected to appear at noon at Mason Community Learning Center on Wednesday.

Previously on That NBA Lottery Pick, we mentioned that Lebron James and Kevin Durant would play in a flag football game.Well, Lebron's team won the game but one of his touchdown celebrations was a rather interesting choice.Last week, Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson pretended to shoot himself in the foot, now Lebron has decided to mimic it: (Courtesy of Bob's Blitz)

Yes, we’re over the whole NBA CBA BRI issue as much as the next guy.
Enough with the alphabet soup.
But the Taiwanese animation studio NMA, as they have throughout the process, has cut to the chase.
What happened in the lockout and where does the situation stand today?
This not only explains it, it probably will lead to royalty rights for LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.
Remember back a long time ago, before all this lockout hoopla when we used to discuss things like the Cleveland Cavaliers’ $14.5 million trade exception they earned in the LeBron James trade?
I know, it’s hard to remember that far back, but it’s time to start thinking trade exception again. I know what you’re thinking, “Didn’t that trade exception expire when the lockout...
You didn't think it was actually going to go down, did you? Especially not after the NBA lockout ended and players would get back to work on the courts to get ready for the season that's weeks away.
Nah, it's happening away. Weeks after Kevin Durant took part in an impromptu flag football game with a Twitter fan, he's joined forces with workout buddy LeBron James...
