Dribbling near the foul lane, he used a head fake on McGee before stepping past the Warriors center. James then threw the ball off the backboard to himself and crushed a two-handed dunk — he pulled off a similar stunt in Baseball Jerseys For Sale last year’s Finals — that sent Cleveland’s bench and fans into a frenzy.
As coach Tyronn Lue had hoped, Cleveland was more physical and won several 50-50 balls while outrebounding and outworking the Warriors, who spent much of the first half barking about the officiating.
As a rookie in 2017, New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara led all qualified NFL players with a yards-per-attempt average of 6.1 while accumulating 1,554 scrimmage yards despite being on the field for less than half of the Saints’ offensive snaps.
That earned him a Pro Bowl nod and the Offensive Rookie of the Year award.
Of course, any effort to secure the ability to protest most likely would require litigation. As the NFL Players Association decides how to deal with a new anthem policy that was adopted only two weeks ago (it feels like two years), one possible strategy will be to file suit in all states where the Cheap Authentic Jerseys constitution may apply not only to public action but also to private action.
It’s hard to believe a newly signed free agent could be the most underpaid player on any roster, but that speaks to the type of bargain the Oakland Raiders got for cornerback Rashaan Melvin.
The 28-year-old is coming off a breakout season in which he intercepted three passes and recorded 13 passes defensed in just 10 games as the best corner in Indianapolis. He gave up an opposing passer rating of just 60.3, which, according to Pro Football Focus, was the 10th-lowest qualified mark in pro football in 2017.
But nine Raiders and 31 corners throughout the league possess contracts containing higher average annual salaries than Melvin’s one-year deal.
