You can never be too young, if you have talent for some college coach to keep an eye on you way before he should even know you. Of course the situation helps when your father is Lebron James. Lebron James Jr, who is only nine years old is already attracting the attention of Thad Madda, head coach of Ohio State University. Bron already has a connection to the school and it is likely he would of considered going there himself had he not jumped right to the NBA. Bron Jr has some nice skills already and it is fair to assume he is only going to get better from here considering his gene pool. Hit the jump.
The NBA wants to speed up the pace of it’s game and it is exploring ways to do so. One of these proposals is to slightly do away with free throws, which would reduce the amount of time a game takes overall. Every trip to the foul line could be for only one free throw from now on, regardless of reason. The fouled shooter would take one foul shot, worth two points. This rule, if instituted, would shave an estimated five minutes off of game time. New commissioner Adam Silver has been looking to make his own mark on the league so do not be surprised if this change becomes reality.
Geno Smith is $12,000 lighter in his bank account today after the NFL hit him with the fine for cursing at a fan after the Jets loss to the Lions Sunday. Geno was already clearly frustrated and fans were letting him know how bad he was before he was seen using profanity towards one fan in particular before walking off the field. He knew right away he messed up and started off his post game press conference acknowledging such. With a vet like Mike Vick waiting to take over if given the chance you can’t blame Geno for being a little uptight but he will learn how to handle it. He has no choice but to.
Guess Lebron doesn’t feel the need to keep his Coconut Grove home now that he has relocated north, and for a cool $17 million this luxury palace can be yours. The crib comes complete with 16,768 sq ft, 6 bedrooms, an infinity pool, wine cellar and dockage space that can accommodate two 60 foot yachts. Bron only paid about $9 million for it a few years ago so he stands to make a nice profit. Can never have enough money period! Check the pics.
