Despite Brady’s greatness, the comeback doesn’t happen without the contributions of James White, who finished with 141 total yards and three touchdowns, including the game winner. When Brady was awarded the MVP, he said the truck that goes along with the MVP award should go to White. He did the same thing when he won the MVP of Super Bowl 49 for Malcolm Butler. Unfortunately Brady didn’t realize the NFL stopped doing that so there is no truck for anyone this year. That is until Conan O’Brien stepped in and surprised White on his show on Thursday.

Last night was no different as the crew of Ernie Johnson, Kenny Smith, Charles Barkley & Shaq touched on the Charles Oakley incident as well as Kevin Durant’s upcoming return this weekend to Oklahoma City. The best part of the night however came courtesy of Shaq when he was in the Area 21 studio with Kevin Garnett and Big Tigger.

MJ and Oakley remain close friends to this day and Phil hoped some words from the GOAT might help calm Oakley down. Only problem was that Phil made the phone call too little, too late.
image via: youtube Lebron James wasn’t in the best of moods last night after his Cavs lost to Russell Westbrook and the Thunder in OKC. The final score was only decided by 9 points but it never actually felt like a close game as you watched it. That’s something that likely wasn’t lost on Lebron as he decided he wasn’t going to take questions from reporters after the game. Instead he issued a brief statement.

Dime was being heckled by fans, which was ironic in the first place since he didn’t actually play in the game due to injury. According to Dylan & Brian, the two fans in question, Malik was not happy with the way they were heckling him and at halftime, things went to another level.

It sounds like someone just got their head knocked off with a Louisville slugger. The two fighters were facing off last night in their Muay Thai match in Las Vegas when Eersel just came out nowhere with the devastating move.
