Recess In Real Life: Watch These Professional Tag Players Play (Video)

Because YES! Whoever picks this up, tell me where and when you are broadcasting, and I am tuning in. Promise. Bonus: Got an idea to amp this up. Put all this in a ‘danger room’ setup (like Gladiators, but cooler) and have folks slinging heavy high-speed burgundy dodgeballs. Dodgeball AND tag to the extreme!

(Maybe next work on a ‘Four Square meets Double Dutch’ game; or sandlot football where you bust through a team’s Red Rover line to score. Solid gold ideas!)

Paul George Talks About Moving To OKC And Building With Russell Westbrook (Video)

They’re not looking at me as a Kevin Durant replacement, but as a new face of OKC.
Paul George

Okay. That’s one in a roomful of elephants in the room. Paul getting along with former fiery (Paul’s word) opponent turned teammate Russell Westbrook (you know, the current ‘face’ of the Oklahoma City Thunder). That’s another. And ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski does ask about that.

The crazy sports universe and the buzz about as a result of all these pro ball league blue chips flipping (and landing). Wow. And a discussion about another Paul’s impactful move and the potential for another team’s championship run next season. We go from talking of CP3 earlier to talking about PG13, Paul George, going to OKC.

Similar lines of discussion laid out in this clip as in ESPN’s clip on CP3’s move from former to future team, too. And the clip above does ‘include’ Paul’s cute kid (like earlier in CP3’s) but we just see the child (and Paul’s wifey…nice!). This interview is all Paul. Good stuff.

Chris Paul Speaks On Leaving The Clippers And Linking Up With James Harden And The Rockets To Win A Championship Ring (Video)

This just in: Chris Paul is now a Houston Rocket.

Sorta. The news is a couple of days old. But the shock waves are still being felt, and the impact of the collapse of whatever ‘bridge’ between Paul and the Clippers organization… Well, folks are gonna try to put some scale to that in the months to come; no doubt. But the nuances in this clip – Paul’s poised (carefully worded) responses to questions, how joining James Harden on a new team might play out and even how cute Paul’s son’s (little Chris) wishes for his competitive dad “played” out – make for an intriguing watch.

Chris Paul sits down with Shelley Smith and talks about his six-year run with the Clippers, his relationship with James Harden and the challenge of stopping the Warriors.

Former Lions’ Receiver Visits With The Raiders In Camp (Video)

Oh… So he is visiting the Raiders as a ‘special guest’ huh? Is that what they are calling it nowadays? Hahaaa! Yeah, the Raiders are probably looking a might sight better than Calvin “Megatron” Johnson’s former squad.

So how do you lose Megatron? That is the question NFL fans might have posed to the Detroit Lions organization when Calvin Johnson announced his retirement in 2016. Maybe pride would have kept them from giving a frank answer, but Calvin can now give his answer: Nine years in a brutal league on a losing team that was not making any real moves to win.

Wow.

Can’t blame the man though. He was a marquee player putting in world class work; the kind that kept him on highlight reels… in spite of lackluster Lions team performance. Watch the ‘puff piece’ above, and read the real talk the NY Daily News got from Johnson via the link below.

Bruce Lee Showing The Martial Arts Skills In Real Life (Video)

That’s right. You read the headline right: Bruce Lee and Ted Wong (his student) square off for a match. Both covered by protective gear, no arrangement made to allow us viewers to see the fighters’ faces. This is that real! Footage from 1967 above showing far less movie magic; and far more real setups, kicks, and punches. Good stuff!

Sports: Floyd Mayweather And Conor McGregor Will Fight August 26th (Video)

The fans wanted to see this fight… and it will be the biggest fight ever in the history of two people punching each other.
– UFC President Dana White

Respect for the sweet science or claims of cage fighting’s supremacy aside, Dana’s probably right. This fight has plenty of haters, each of its combatants have plenty of haters, and both boxing and UFC have haters. With that much hateration – and even more folks who follow either or both Mayweather and McGregor in the nation – this is another event to net Floyd triple figures easy!

And some pretty juicy scraps for everyone else involved.

Like it or love it (and Stephen A. will tell you which L he’s taking above, hahaa)… the fight is on! Hitting pay-per-view screens in August… It’s Showtime!

Marshawn Lynch Talks To The Press, About His Comeback, In The Most ‘BeastMode’ Way (Video)

If you saw this, you immediately said or thought: “Okay, BeastMode. Gotcha.” And really understood what he was saying (well enough to ‘translate’ for anyone who did not ‘get it’ right away). Stuff like this is why the press always presses Marshawn Lynch to say something…ANYTHING.

Do You Know Mindfulness Coach George Mumford? Michael Jordan And Kobe Bryant Do (Video)

The best way to score is not to try to score… You form an intention and then you have to allow it to happen.
George Mumford

Not too far a stretch for two players coached by Phil Jackson to be into meditation. Jackson was known as ‘The Zen Master’ of course. However, this Daily VICE video is going to adjust the spotlight so it shines on the guy that really helped Air and The Heir Apparent to get their minds right, meditation guru George Mumford.

Feature Presentation: Man On Hoverboard Delivers The 2017 Portuguese Cup Final Game Ball To The Official (Video)

Dear real American football: You took an L for this round. Have you SEEN this technical extracurricular activity they had poppin’ at the football (okay futbol, happy?)?? A hoverboard pilot delivered the soccer game ball to the official like a f#cking superhero (well, supervillain, if you go the Green Goblin route)!

The match ball for the 2017 Portuguese Cup final was delivered to the referee by a man on a drone. The man rode the spider-like drone around 70m in driving rain before landing by the match official near the halfway line and handing the ball over. Benfica won the game 2-1, beating Vitória de Guimarães and completing their 11th league and cup double.

Even if you aren’t into this kind of ball, you gotta admit that this clip is baaaallinnnn’!

Sports: Lebron James’ Free Throw Style Is In A Constant State Of Change (Video)

Lebron James has had yet another stellar season, and talk of him replacing Air Jordan as the heir to the title of Best Baller Of All. His free throw game has been kind of lame (on the low) but he has been trying to fix it. Trying VERY hard. And ESPN has been eyeballing and has taken the time to elucidate every time King James has changed his style up in an attempt to do better at the line.

Damn. They even gave each switch up name!
