Ohm Youngmisuk has covered the Giants, Jets and the National Football League since 2006.

"As one team source put it, when asked about Thomas in the week leading up to the trade deadline: 'I'm all for an underdog story, but you usually expect some humility to be part of that story".

Last night the Cavaliers took on LA Lakers at the Staples Centre and were on the losing end of the score with the hosts picking up a 127-113 victory.

With the win, the Lakers have now gone 7-2 after the All-Star break.

A 104-94 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday dropped them to 37-29, which places them seventh in the standings and just one game from 10th.

Forward Kyle Korver admitted his teams was lacking the presence of many key assets of this team, which has turned the mood rather sour, as Cleveland has only won four of the last 10 games with 15 games left in the season. As the Cavaliers called timeout while down 115-94, James palmed the ball and motioned as if he wanted to throw it in frustration before cocking back.

Pogba doesn't train before Man Utd - Sevilla
Klopp's Liverpool have scored 68 league goals so far this term, while Manchester United have registered ten fewer goals. It has also been said - rightly - that atmosphere is lacking at Old Trafford, but that was not the case on Saturday.

Cardinals expected to release RB Peterson
Adrian Peterson is expected to be released from the Cardinals on Monday, ESPN.com reported , citing sources. He spent 2017 playing brief stints with the New Orleans Saints and Arizona Cardinals.

Lakers guard Isaiah Thomas, who said the Cavaliers "panicked" in January when they traded him to Los Angeles, chipped in 20 points against his former team.

According to ESPN's Ohm Youngmisuk, the Lakers were auditioning for James' services during Sunday's game. "Never played against JC and Larry, other than practice".

The two-time Defensive Player of the Year has only been on the court for only nine games, with the Spurs being without their best player and franchise cornerstone for almost the entire season.

The Lakers did have a lot of fun on Sunday night at James' expense.

"I don't need to show anybody", Thomas said. "They know what I can do".

"I don't know if I could play washed, but I damn sure would love to stick around if my oldest son can have an opportunity to play against me". Houston, which had its 17-game win streak snapped Friday in Toronto, broke the game open in the third quarter by hitting their first six 3s of the period amid a 22-10 run. The Lakers' entire season has been created to prove their young core would fit splendidly around James, Paul George or DeMarcus Cousins - or failing that, the top free agents in the class of 2019.
