    As National Football League owners are walking on the eggshells left by kneeling players versus the fans, one would think, going forward that words, would be carefully chosen as not to further imperil team and league bottom lines. Cleveland Cavaliers' owner Dan Gilbert might have been hoping his star player's Twitter feud with the President of the United States would die down before the start of the National Basketball Association season. It didn't turn out that way.

    Friday night in Huntsville, Alabama, President Trump veered off from the political into sports and condemned the owners and athletes in the National Football League who either kneel or sit during the pre-game playing of our national anthem. While denouncing the president, let's be honest here: going to the White House for most of these black players only became a big deal when they could be pictured with the half-black president. Protesting such an honor only became taboo because of President Obama's skin color, and as President Trump is hated by most in the media and police shootings have become...

    LeBron James called Donald Trump a "bum" after the US President rescinded an invitation for Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry to go to the White House. Trump tweeted Saturday that Curry is no longer invited to the White House because of what the president called hesitation by the two-time NBA MVP in deciding whether to make the traditional champions' trip to Washington. That prompted an angry response from Cleveland Cavaliers star James. James tweeted: "U bum. Stephen Curry already said he ain't going! So therefore ain't no invite. Going to White House was a great honour until you showed...

    On Friday afternoon I called the Los Angeles police department to request any and all information about their investigation of the alleged racist graffiti incident on a gate outside LeBron James’s LA area home. The LAPD said they had nothing to share, including the police report itself. The only evidence I was told the police department had logged was a photo of the graffiti on the gate provided by the individual(s) at LeBron James’s Los Angeles residence. I was also told there had been no surveillance video entered into evidence in this case.

    Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, Dwyane Wade, and LeBron James made a strong statement at the ESPYs (via @cjzero on Twitter). The most recent wave of race-related shootings in the United States — chiefly the police killing of Alton Sterling in Louisiana, the police killing of Philando Castile in Minnesota, and the shooting deaths of five police officers at a Black Lives Matter rally in Dallas last week — have inspired several recent cases of increased political consciousness for black athletes. Members of the WNBA’s Minnesota Lynx have made the most controversial statement so far in donning Black Lives Matter t-shirts...

    OAKLAND — What's one more week compared to a 40-year championship drought? What's one more week when it means a shot at the first title in franchise history? The Warriors eliminated the Rockets with a 104–90 victory in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals on Wednesday, advancing to an NBA Finals date with the Cavaliers. This is a matchup worth waiting for, and a little patience will be required. Because both Golden State and Cleveland made quick work of their conference finals foes, the NBA will hit the pause button for a full week before the championship series opens...
