LeBron James Was Mic’d Up For Game 1

I love that the NBA is keeping their players mic’d up during the playoffs, and the latest to get the treatment is none other than LeBron James (oh, and Kemba Walker). LeBron sounds just as intense as he plays. By far the best part for me was LeBron complimenting his young coach. [NBA] Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

This pitcher had one job, intentionally walk this mammoth batter. He didn’t do that one job. The pitcher left it on the outside of the plate and the hitter crushed it for a three-run homer.

The Red Wings aren’t exactly known for fighting (ie. they don’t fight), and that made Brendan Smith’s faux attempt at throwing down with Zdeno Chara just that much more funny on Sunday. Brendan did his best to let the big fella know that he wanted to throw down, and Chara responded with only a giggle. Just perfect. The Bruins would also get the last laugh as they evened the...

Jeff Teague Really Confused Evan Turner WIth This Step Back
