Bears LB Jerrell Freeman saves choking man at airport

A meal at the Austin airport quickly turned into a matter of life or death for Bears linebacker Jerrell Freeman at the Austin airport Sunday.

While awaiting a brisket sandwich from an airport restaurant, Freeman saw a man in distress nearby. Freeman thought the man may have lost a child, but when a woman ran to the man and tried the Heimlich maneuver Freeman recognized the man was choking.

Despite exceptional play over eight seasons, the Clippers center has never been named an All-Star, so he expected more of the same in 2017. He was so sure of the fact that he actually planned a trip to Hawaii, which he had to cancel once he discovered the news.

After practice on Thursday, I had my trip to Hawaii ready to go. I was super excited about it, Jordan told ESPN’s The Undefeated. I was waiting for this one last little thing [All-Star announcement]. I was leaving at 6 in the morning [of Feb. 16] and was ready to rock. Someone texted me and said, ‘Hey, you got to cancel that trip to Hawaii.’ I was like, ‘No, this is done. This is set. What’s up?’

I was thinking that they would have known at practice if I made it or not. They didn’t say nothing at practice, so I was like, ‘Cool, I didn’t make it. I’m about to set my trip up.’

Jordan went on to tell The Undefeated about his Cheap Discount Jerseys emotions toward making it for the first time. He said he had essentially given up on the idea of ever Cheap Custom Jerseys making it to the game. Last year was especially strange as he was named All-NBA First Team, but not an All-Star.

Derek Fisher’s home burglarized, championship rings reportedly stolen

Derek Fisher’s Los Angeles home was robbed Monday morning, and the burglars reportedly got away with $300,000 worth of jewelry.

The former Knicks coach and Lakers guard wasn’t home at the time of the robbery, The Associated Press reported.

Los Angeles police didn’t clarify what kind of jewelry was stolen, but TMZ is reporting that all five of Fisher’s NBA championship rings were taken.

Fisher, who was with the Lakers for a total of 13 seasons, won the rings in 2000, 2001, 2002, 2009 and 2010.

He has yet to make a public statement about the robbery.

James’ complaint that the Cavs are top-heavy with himself, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love is somewhat accurate. But the Big Three still is good enough to get them out of the East, where Toronto and Boston can’t match their star power and haven’t taken advantage of the Cavs’ recent struggles. It’s matching up with Golden State or the Spurs where they don’t have the necessary depth, which is how LeBron views everything.

They’re still going to be without J.R. Smith for perhaps two more months, and besides finding a backup for Irving, they need to add a center. They’re extremely thin on the defensive end, with Chris Andersen out for the season. They can outscore most teams, but while losing six of eight games, including a home contest to Sacramento, they’ve showed that they only are a middle-of-the-pack defensive team, and that’s not good enough to win a second straight title. So if Dallas after the trade deadline decides to buy out Andrew Bogut, who has said he expects to be elsewhere next season, then Cheap Blue Jays Jerseys Cleveland might find itself in a bidding war against other Cheap China NFL Jerseys teams (perhaps San Antonio) to get some rim protection.

Knicks, Clippers seeking third team to help Carmelo Anthony trade

Drama only begins to sum up Carmelo Anthony’s current status as a New York Knicks player.

The team is openly trying to rebuild and start over with younger players, which leaves the aging Anthony and his balky contract as a prime trade candidate. Anthony recently said he would consider waiving his no-trade clause, and the Knicks seem to be willing to take him up on that.

Le Batard’s words about Steele’s complaint were interesting, mainly because of the dynamic it brings in regards to being employed by the same company.

The genie is out of the bottle on this because we all have our own Twitter accounts and all have our own social media, he said, as transcribed by SliceMiami.com. This is what ESPN is trying to prevent because once one person does it, it opens the floodgates for the rest of us because, of course, I, as the son of exiles, look at this and I’m like what the hell are you talking about [that] your travel plans were affected? What are you talking about? The height of privilege.

But you can’t give this a voice and then muzzle the rest of us. You can’t give Sage Steele this voice and muzzle the son of exiles.

Surely ESPN doesn’t like its employees criticizing one another in such a public way, but this isn’t new territory for Le Batard. He’s been suspended by the company before, and we wouldn’t be surprised if he at least doesn’t get a call Cheap Bike Jerseys from the Cheap Baseball Jerseys office after these comments.

Kevin Love says he expects to be in Cleveland ‘for a long time’

Like everyone else, Kevin Love has heard the rumors: he’s supposedly headed to the Knicks in a trade that will send star Carmelo Anthony to Cleveland.

Love told reporters Friday he doesn’t believe the talk, saying he expects to be here for a long time.

Here is Cleveland, where the 6-10 forward played an integral role in bringing the Cavaliers their first NBA championship last season. He’s averaging a double-double this year (19.9 points, 11.0 rebounds per game).

Words can’t explain. I can’t explain. I’m just deep from my heart that I have somebody that understands me as a person and that’s not quick to judge, Jones said, via the team’s website.

I talk to (Brown) every day at practice, Jones continued There’s not a day I don’t run over there or he at least says, ‘Hey,’ to me as he’s driving out (to practice). The respect and the love that I have for Mr. Brown is undeniable, words (can’t) express the gratitude of how I feel about him.

The Bengals met for training camp at Paul Brown stadium, where Jones candidly talked about his suspension and how he deserved it.

I take all accountability for what I did and my actions and my words, Jones said. So I accept it, the one-game suspension. I’m ready to move on, man. I’m happy to be here, I’m Cheap Authentic NFL Jerseys happy to Cheap Authentic Hockey Jerseys be part of the 50th season here. I think it’s going to be special.

Clippers’ Blake Griffin flies high again with poster dunk over Warriors’ Kevon Looney

Ah, Blake Griffin dunking all over people. It’s one of the things we love about the Association.

Griffin put another defender on a poster Thursday night when he yammed all over the Warriors’ Kevon Looney. It was vintage Blake, who is still plenty explosive even after missing time Basketball Cheap Jerseys this season with a knee injury.

Vance McDonald was on the trading block during the draft. Garrett Celek has reached his peak. Blake Bell is coming off injury. The 49ers had to reboot here with more versatile and effective options as blockers and receivers. Shanahan will see Juszcyzk as being able to do a little bit of everything out of the backfield, including power running. The coach used the more limited Patrick DiMarco to full effectiveness in Atlanta.

The 49ers also made a sneaky Day 3 draft pick here with former Iowa tight end George Kittle. He, like Juszcyzk, comes in with outstanding blocking credentials but the wiggle to have some pass-catching upside. Shanahan’s influence will be felt in the raised effectiveness of these periphery pass-catching positions.

Fourth-round draft pick Tarik Cohen, known in central North Carolina as The Human Joystick, will be a fun toy with which offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains can be creative. He’ll battle Ka’Deem Carey and Benny Cunningham for carries, and he might even push one off the roster.

Chicago signed Markus Wheaton, Kendall Wright, Reuben Randle and Victor Cruz this offseason, and each guy is trying to revive his career on his second NFL team. All four will make it tougher for the likes of Deonte Thompson, Josh Bellamy and Daniel Braverman to earn snaps and/or stick Best Cheap Jerseys From China on the roster.
