He wasnt even at the game and yet LeBron James is to blame for Old Dominion defeating VCU in Monday nights Colonial Athletic Association Championship Game.
How, you might ask?
Apparently the Old Dominion mascot did the LeBron Powder Toss before the game.
This caused one of VCUs players to slip while going for a layup during the game. Old Dominion took the ball the other way and drained a three. VCU fans were ripped that there was no tripping call on the play.
Poor Nixon later got elbowed in the head by Frank Hassell. Classic Rule-48 headshot. Were expecting at least a five game suspension for this hit.
Obviously, people are blaming Hassell for throwing the elbow but a still frame shows a different villain.
Brutal. Who knew Matt Cooke played college basketball?
But unlike the Heat, VCU didnt cry or play peek-a-boo after the game.
What were getting at is this is all BronBrons fault. No way in hell Nixon slips or gets a headshot from Hassell if it wasnt for LeBron being LeBron. Were not entirely sure how, but its most definitely, 100 his fault.
If its any consolation to people, the powder didnt keep Old Dominion fans from celebrating. No injuries were reported in this chaos.
President Donald Trump's comments about NFL players and his tweeted dis-invite of the Warriors led to some prominent athletes to speak out. Now NFL franchises and their owners are weighing in.
At a rally in Alabama on Friday night, Trump said NFL owners should fire players who kneel during the national anthem. And he encouraged NFL fans to walk out of games in protest.
“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, you’d say, ’Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out! He’s fired,” Trump told the rally.
He also lamented that football has become less violent.
“They’re ruining the game,” he complained.
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Lee Nguyen and Kei Kamara scored late goals and the New England Revolution, with a 2-1 win, denied Toronto FC an opportunity to clinch the Supporters' Shield on Saturday.
Kamara scored the go-ahead goal in the 87th minute with a header off Nguyen's cross. The Revs (11-4-5) avoided playoff elimination and extended their undefeated streak at home against Toronto FC (18-5-8) to six games. Toronto has three matches remaining to clinch the Shield with a magic number of three points.
Nguyen opened the scoring for New England in the 82nd minute with his 50th career goal, taking Chris Tierney's lead pass from midfield and finishing through a defensive deflection.
Toronto FC's Nicolas Hasler answered two minutes later with a right-footed volley of Michael Bradley's diagonal cross.
Forwards Sebastian Giovinco and Jozy Altidore missed the match for Toronto FC, both due to lower body tightness.
