LeBron James blasts Trump, calls him “so-called President”
SANDUSKY, Ohio — LeBron James swiped at President Trump on Tuesday, calling him the “so-called president” while calling for unity in light of the Charlottesville tragedy. Speaking on stage to students, parents and families connected his to foundation at the end of a daylong event at Cedar Point Amusement Park, James said he wanted to spend a moment addressing the weekend’s violent protests, where a woman was killed. “I know there’s a lot of tragic things happening in Charlottesville (Virginia),” James said. “I just want to speak on it right now. I have this platform and I’m somebody that has a voice of command and the only way for us to get better as a society and for us to get better as people is love. And that’s the only way we’re going to be able to conquer something as one. It’s not about the guy that’s the so-called president of the United States, or whatever the case.” Earlier in the day, the NBA superstar blasted Trump on Twitter after the president appeared to equate the actions of white supremacists and those protesting them. James has been outspoken on his political beliefs in the past, and he took advantage of his first public appearance since the NBA Finals, to call out Trump’s actions. “It’s not about a teacher that you don’t feel like cares about what’s going on with you every day,” James continued. “It’s not about people that you just don’t feel like want to give the best energy and effort to you. It’s about us. It’s about us looking in the mirror. Kids all the way up to the adults. All of us looking in the mirror and saying, ‘What can we do better to help change?’ And if we can all do that and give 110 percent, then that’s all you can ask for.

Thank you, and I love you all.” James was joined on stage by his three children, singers Usher and Jordin Sparks, who performed during the event, and Cavaliers teammate J.R. Smith. James flew to New York earlier Tuesday to play in pickup games with Warriors star Kevin Durant and Carmelo Anthony of the New York Knicks. [...]

Mark down the dates: NBA unveils full 2017-18 schedule
NEW YORK — DeMarcus Cousins will make an early season trip back to Sacramento, while Gordon Hayward will wait almost all season to see Utah again. Chris Paul’s return to his old Clippers home is part of a Martin Luther King Jr. day tripleheader that includes another NBA Finals rematch, while Paul George and Jimmy Butler also learned the dates of their return games Monday when the NBA released its full 2017-18 schedule — which for the first time in history features no teams playing four games in five nights. The league had unveiled its opening-week national TV games and its five-game Christmas schedule last week. Opening night is Oct. 17, the earliest the regular season has started in 37 years. Cousins will then return to California’s capital city to play for the first time since the Kings traded him to New Orleans last February when the Pelicans visit on Oct. 26 as part of a TNT doubleheader. From there, it’s another five months until Hayward plays in Salt Lake City for the first time since joining the Boston Celtics as a free agent in July. The Celtics visit the Jazz on March 28 for an ESPN game. Other nights of note: — George travels back to Indiana on Dec. 13 for the first time since the Pacers surprisingly dealt him to Oklahoma City. — Butler, another All-Star who went East to West in the summer, takes the Timberwolves into Chicago on Feb. 9. — The NBA’s top two picks go head-to-head for the first time Nov. 15 when Markelle Fultz and Philadelphia visit Lonzo Ball and the Lakers.

The Christmas schedule, as usual, is headlined by NBA Finals foes Golden State and Cleveland meeting for the first time since the Warriors’ five-game victory in June. They will meet again on Jan. 15 on the Cavaliers’ home floor. Later that night, Paul’s Houston Rockets play the Clippers at Staples Center for the first time since acquiring the point guard to play alongside James Harden in their backcourt. The opener of the TNT tripleheader features Memphis’ return to the Martin Luther King Jr. Day schedule, hosting the Lakers. The regular season ends April 11. [...]

Kelsey Plum blossoming in WNBA with help of purple pen
NEW YORK — With Kelsey Plum struggling at the start of her career, San Antonio Stars assistant coach Latrell Trammell took a hands-on approach to try to break the rookie out a slump. Last month, right before the Stars played at Indiana, Trammell took out a purple pen and drew a plus sign and the word “positive” on Plum’s hand. She went out and scored 12 points that game — her high for the season to that point — and San Antonio won its first road game. Trammell has done it every game since, too and just like that, the 5-foot-8 guard who set the NCAA career scoring record at Washington has blossomed. “I started with purple because it’s her college team color,” Trammell said in a phone interview Monday night. “Ever since we started to do it, she’s been doing very well. She glances down at it and smiles and is playing more relaxed. It’s as simple as one word on the back of her hand.” Plum has played extremely well lately helping the Stars to a three-game winning streak, their longest since 2015. She had a career-best 12 assists on Friday night and then followed it up with a season-high 23 points on Saturday. “It’s still not daisies and roses, but continues to get better,” Plum said. “I think I wasn’t having fun and things in life that come at you, hit you hard.” Plum had a tough start to her career injuring her ankle in the practice before the regular season started. It was slow to heal and the team wasn’t winning. This wasn’t how she envisioned her pro career going. “I love playing and love performing and I think I struggled with not playing to what I was capable of,” Plum said Monday night. “It’s been tough, too. I heard a lot of the noise about why isn’t Plum playing the way we think she can play. People need to understand when I blew out my ankle, I tore everything in it that you couldn’t have surgery for. I’m still not a full go. I’m still working back. It’s not an excuse, but you have to adapt to something that happened. It took a while.” She wasn’t having fun and that’s when Trammell decided to try something she had done with other players. “I went out and bought multiple colors in a packet,” Trammell said, laughing. “I personally thought let’s start with purple, that’s where she had her great success. Let her carry that over and remember how good she is. ” Related ArticlesAugust 3, 2017 WNBA players added to NBA Live 18, to be featured in video game for 1st time July 22, 2017 Maya Moore leads West past East 130-121 in WNBA All-Star Game So now every game before Plum comes on the court for pregame shooting, Trammell is there waiting for her, pen in hand. “It’s just something for me to remember to have fun and be positive no matter what happens,” Plum said. While the Stars (6-21) will be hard-pressed to make the playoffs this season, they are headed in the right direction. “I think for us, we got to take it game by game,” Plum said. “Next up we have Chicago, we’ve got to focus on Chicago. We’re learning that when we play together and play with the passions we’re playing with the last couple games, we’re a good young feisty scrappy team. We can build upon what we’ve built the last couple weeks, really excited for our future.” [...]

Warriors-Rockets, Cavs-Celtics on NBA’s early opening night
NEW YORK — The Golden State Warriors will open their title defense by hosting Houston in Chris Paul’s Rockets debut on Oct. 17, the NBA’s earliest opening night in 37 years. Cleveland and Boston will play an Eastern Conference finals rematch earlier that night to begin the 2017-18 season, the league announced Thursday. The Warriors and Cavaliers will play a Finals rematch on Christmas, the marquee game of the five-game holiday schedule. The other Christmas games are: — Philadelphia, playing on Dec. 25 for the first time since 2001, at New York — Washington at Boston in the Celtics’ first Christmas home game ever — Houston at Oklahoma City in a matchup of MVP Russell Westbrook and runner-up James Harden — Minnesota at the Lakers and No. 2 pick Lonzo Ball in the nightcap Related ArticlesAugust 9, 2017 Wife of Clippers’ Willie Reed wants domestic battery charge dropped August 7, 2017 Stephen Curry vows to do more off court with new contract in hand August 6, 2017 Clippers’ Willie Reed arrested on domestic violence charge August 5, 2017 Team World wins NBA Africa Game exhibition August 2, 2017 Having accomplished nothing on his own, LaVar Ball goes a familiar route The NBA moved up the start of its 72nd regular season in hopes of creating more opportunities for players to rest without doing so during games. The Oct. 17 opener is the league’s earliest since the 1980-81 season began on Oct. 10. National TV games during the opening week and the Christmas schedule were unveiled Thursday. The complete schedule is being finalized and will be announced next week. The Oct. 18 schedule features the 76ers potentially debuting the last two No. 1 picks at Washington. Ben Simmons sat out all last season with a foot injury, and Philadelphia then grabbed guard Markelle Fultz in June after trading with Boston to move up to No. 1. Jimmy Butler makes his Timberwolves debut in the nightcap of that ESPN doubleheader in San Antonio, while the Oct. 19 games feature Paul George and Oklahoma City hosting the Knicks. [...]
