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.
