• Best ever? Kendrick Perkins says LeBron James needs 'a couple more titles and that's it'

    Updated: Tue, May 26, 2015

    Is LeBron James close to being the best ever, dethroning Michael Jordan? His teammates believe so. Northeast Ohio Media Group's Chris Haynes wrote that some of James' Cleveland Cavaliers teammates are among the believers that King James is nearing Jordan's long untouchable status. One of those who's sold on James as heir to Jordan is former Thunder forward Kendrick Perkins. "The only thing that he's missing is a couple more championships and then it's a wrap," Perkins told Northeast Ohio Media Group. "Right now we have arguably the best player to ever play the game. I'm just saying man. I'm not taking anything away from Jordan, but all (James is) missing is titles. A couple of more titles and that's it." James already has two titles under his belt from his four seasons with the Miami Heat. Jordan retired with six championships in six trips to the NBA Finals with the Chicago Bulls. Oh, and there are those six NBA Most Valuable Player awards in Jordan's trophy case, too. It's a lot to live up to for James, but Perkins says the four-time MVP is capable. "Just think about it, truthfully, if he wanted to, he could win the MVP every year," Perkins said. "Think about that. He averaged 25 [points], 6 [rebounds] and 7 [assists]. That's absurd, and people are like 'he had a down year.' That's crazy talk. When it's all said and done, he'll probably be the best the game has seen."

  • Dallas' Greg Hardy’s appeal of 10-game suspension to be heard Thursday

    Published: Tue, May 26, 2015

    Dallas Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy's appeal of his 10-game suspension for domestic violence will be heard Thursday morning in Washington, D.C., according to an ESPN report. The appeal will be heard by  former NFL executive Harold Henderson, who previously upheld commissioner Roger Goodell's suspension of Adrian Peterson. In February a federal judge vacated Henderson's ruling and ended the Vikings indefinite suspension of Peterson. Hardy has been cleared to workout at the Cowboys training facility and participate in training camp and pre-season during the appeals process. The Dallas Morning News reported that an NFL investigation concluded that Hardy used physical force against his former girlfriend, Nicole Holder, in at least four instances. According to the investigation: -- Hardy placed his hands around her neck, using enough pressure to leave visible marks. -- He shoved her agaisnt a wall, throwing her on a futon covered with at least four semi-automatic rifles.  

  • Adrian Peterson vs. Vikings could see retirement card, says NFL Insider

    FROM STAFF REPORTS | Published: Tue, May 26, 2015

    Would Adrian Peterson retire before playing another down for the Vikings? Don't rule it out in an entrenched fight between star player and team. CBSSports.com's Jason La Canfora says the leverage game between the former OU running back and Minnesota may not see a resolution soon. Peterson hasn't shown up for Organized Team Activities, and may skip a mandatory mini-camp. What's next - missing the start of training camp? Remember, following a reported verbal altercation with Vikings brass at the NFL Draft combine, Peterson's agent Ben Dogra was adamant that his client wouldn't play for Minnesota again . From La Canfora: "Ultimately, maybe Peterson gets new incentives added to the contract. Maybe he gets a portion of his massive 2017 salary -- not a penny of which is guaranteed right now -- guaranteed as of the first regular season game this September. Maybe he gets a year added on to the deal. Maybe it's a hodgepodge of all of the above. If he goes down, it won't be without pushing the issues. At this point he has nothing to lose (except for some cash, perhaps, but Peterson could always pull the retirement card if need be and remember he already got paid in full a year ago despite not having to subject his body to a game or practice after Week 1).

Three generations of the family eat meagre rations, dress in the style of the era and endure the daily hardship their predecessors would have experienced after Hitler’s 1939 invasion of the country.
