Kyrie Irving allow the rumor to live that he left the Cleveland Cav’s due to a dislike of playing second fiddle to LaBron James after his return from the Miami Heat.

Recently on a sports network former teammate Richard Jefferson refuted the rumors and offered an alternative reason for the All-Star’s departure. In late summer 2017, the Cavaliers granted Kyrie Irving a trade request and sent him to the Boston Celtics in exchange for Isaiah Jefferson, Ante Zizic and Jae Crowder in addition to draft picks.

In a TV appearance, Jefferson vehemently denied the primary reason was due to James’ role as team leader. He suggested Irving found out about a Cav’s front office attempt to trade him in a three team deal – the deal failed, but no before souring Irvings relationship with the organization.

Game of Lies

Lying Ass Trump

Scribe: N. Tru Bass

Email: ntb@thethinkering.com

 

Trump sent out a tweet on Wednesday stating the Chinese hacked former secretary of state Hillary Clintons email address and had access in real time. The missive didn't cite a source or provide any prove of statement, leaving one to question its validity.

This is likely coming from a 2015 media report and not credible. We all now know we have a sitting president who doesn't always tell the truth. One would think at that level of responsibility you could not get away with just pointing the things if in face they are not confirmed and supported by metadata.

Chuck Schumer Pushes League Betting

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is the most recent member of Congress to kick suggestions for a federal framework for sports betting Wednesday in a memo release by a sports channel.

He suggested books only use official league data to determine outcomes and that the sports leagues themselves should be involved in determining what bets would be accepted.  He also suggest a bump up in monitoring.   While the veteran lawmaker is not against under 21 betting, he is making sure the youngsters are not targeted.    The leagues would have an economic boon, with the additional revenue from the data required by books. 

Delaware, Mississippi, and New Jersey have taken bets since the Murphy v. NCAA et al. decision which in May overturned the federal ban on state sponsored sports betting as a result of the professional and amateur sports act.

On the heels of warring factions on the Springfield protest front, the latest mass shootings have forced the canceling of the upcoming “Madden” qualifiers. 

EA Sports CEO Andrew Wilson launched a statement after the tragedy. 

To Our Players and the Gaming Community,

I wanted to share some thoughts about the horrific and senseless act of violence that occurred in Jacksonville at the Madden competitive gaming event.  I know many of us, myself included, are filled with shock and grief.  Our teams have been working non-stop to do what we can to respond to this terrible situation.

Game 3 Warriors vs. Cavs in Cleveland

Lebron James 2018 Finals

Scribe: Lucy Osbourne

Email: lucy@thethinkering.com

 

Game three is slated for tonight and The Cavaliers have made a great showing on what appeared to be a marginal season. If anyone had any questions as to whether James is one of the best players to ever lace them up then that should be answered. James has made clear he is a dominant player and is playing peak basketball.

Fans and pundits all agree the western conference is decidedly more competitive than the eastern conference and the lopsided contests are becoming hackneyed.

Remembering back when James was a high school standout, I along with many others became sick of hearing about how great this new young player coming directly into the NBA was playing. Fast forward to 8 consecutive finals appearances and serious dominance with no hint of slowing down the rumors were not as demonstrative enough.

University Basketball Head coach forced to prove mothering her Biracial Son

Gottlieb

A well known college basketball coach was recently asked by Southwest Airline to prove that her 1-year-old son was hers.

Head coach Lindsay Gottlieb runs the show at the University of California Berkeley and was on a flight to Oakland from Denver when Southwest asked her to show the child's birth certificate. She explained that she did not have the official document but offered his passport which was a problem due to the child's last name being different.

The airline then asked the young mother, “She said, well, how do I know that you’re the mother?” Gottlieb is considered white and Jordan’s father is called black.
