Freddie Mitchell reacts to J.R. Smith’s NBA Finals blunder by calling out Donovan McNabb
In Game 1 of the 2018 NBA Finals, Cleveland Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith made one of the biggest blunders in basketball history. Smith got an offensive rebound off a missed free-throw by George Hill with just under five seconds left in a tie game, but rather than taking an open shot, Smith pulled the ball out to the perimeter and dribbled out the clock seemingly because he thought the Cavaliers were actually in the lead rather than tied. (Smith later claimed that he knew the score was tied and expected a timeout to be called.)
Golden Nuggets: The tight end who got away More The San Francisco 49ers are finished with their second week of OTAs and there’s much to take in, but I found something tonight worth mentioning. Former 49ers tight end Delanie Walker has declared himself the best in the NFL. Honestly, given how he explains how/why he is, I can’t blame him. He has a case for being best all around (blocking, pass catching, running) but I don’t know if I agree. I will agree that he should have stayed in San Francisco, if Vernon Davis wasn’t playing lights out, he probably would have. Unfortunately he was deserving of No. 1 tight end money and was going to be stuck as No. 2. Not to mention, perhaps Tennessee was the best thing to happen to him.

More than a week after the NFL clumsily changed its national anthem policy in a way that managed to take a bad situation and make it worse, the NBA won’t be changing its own rules and regulations regarding the anthem.
