Lebron James has been playing for 17 years in the NBA. He is playing at an
MVP level and continues to break history. Last night, James became the
first player ever to record a triple double against every team in the NBA.
Lebron's continued dominance has had a positve effect of the LA Lakers and
they currently hold the top of the western conference standings. If Lebron
James keeps playing at this elite level, teams should worry about them
when the playoffs arrive.

“I really don’t know what to think about it to be honest,” James said
“I’ve had some great teammates and great coaches to put me in a
position to be able to facilitate. My teammates have made shots for me
throughout my career. Coaches have put me in position to be successful
scoring the ball. I was just trying to read and react to the ball off the
rim as far as getting rebounds. And hopefully throughout all those triple-
doubles I have a winning record in those games.”

James didn’t like his own start. At halftime he had 13 points, four
assists and five rebounds, but had four turnovers, three of them in the
first quarter. On Sunday against Atlanta, James had 12 assists and no
turnovers, so the seven he acquired on Tuesday night irked him.

Things didn't go as planned for the NFL and Colin Kaepernick in Atlanta,
after the league reached out to the quarterback and teams to organize a
formal workout so he could put his talents on display. It's been nearly
three calendar years since Kaepernick has taken an NFL snap, and his feels
his absence is due to collusion by NFL owners due to his silent protest
for civil rights during the performance of the national anthem -- leading
to a lawsuit that was eventually settled out of court by the league.

Initially mulling the possibility of attending Kaepernick's workout at the
Atlanta Falcons practice facility in Flowery Branch, Georgia, owner Jerry
Jones made the decision none of his personnel would be sent, but that they
would instead "watch the tape" from the workout if they found themselves
"in need" of help at the quarterback position.

As the witching hour approached for 24 other clubs committed to sending a
scout to evaluate Kaepernick, things went horribly awry, with Kaepernick
changing the location of his workout due to disagreements on media
permission and his unwillingness to sign a waiver that reportedly was far
from standard.
