That would be ringless Redskins (and former Eagles) wide receiver DeSean Jackson taking another shot at two-time champ LeBron James on Jackson’s Instagram account. This is Jackson’s second shot at LeBron in a week. (Jackson grew up in Southern California a Kobe Bryant/Lakers fan.)

Some online continue to throw shade on LeBron, blaming him for Miami’s loss to the Spurs. Sure. LeBron only averaged 28.2 points with a true shooting percentage of 67.9 percent, plus grabbed 7.8 rebounds and dished out four assists a game in the Finals. And he did a quality job guarding Tony Parker for stretches. So sure, it’s all on LeBron, his teammates certainly didn’t let him down in any way.
But Jackson speaks for a lot of people who revel in LeBron falling short. Such is the way of the Internet.
Hat tip to The Big Lead.
LeBron James sat out the Cavs’ preseason game against the Sixers on Thursday night, but Cleveland still held the lead for all but the final 5.4 seconds. Then, Sixers rookie Scottie Wilbekin did this:
Wilbekin, who played college ball at Florida, has a chance to earn legitimate minutes for the Sixers this season as they try to find young talent on the cheap. This is a good start.
Eight days ago, Derrick Rose had surgery to repair a fractured orbital bone suffered in training camp. The Bulls said he would be ready to resume basketball activities in two weeks, and in the meantime will rejoin practice soon. That part is still on schedule — head coach Fred Hoiberg says Rose will be with the team when they return to Chicago on Monday following a two-game preseason road trip, but unless the swelling in his eye dies down, it could be a little longer before he can start practicing again.
Via K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune:
It’s not ideal, but since there’s no structural damage to Rose’s face, once he’s cleared to resume practicing, it’s just a matter of getting back into game shape before he can start playing in games. The team is still optimistic he’ll be able to play opening night against the Cavaliers on October 27.
