James Harden explains staredown on Wesley Johnson after sick crossover
James Harden caught the NBA world’s attention Wednesday night with what will likely end up being the crossover of the year.
In the first quarter, Harden was matched up on the Clippers’ Wesley Johnson, who stood absolutely no chance. Harden gave a fake, Johnson tripped up, then just fell and stayed down on the court while Harden waited at the 3-point line staring him down.
The move was as funny as it was disrespectful. I mean, who just stands there taunting their opponent like that? Well, as Harden explained after the game, he wasn’t exactly trying to show off, he was more curious as to what was going on.
It felt good man, I’ve been in my bag all year so it’s just one of those moves where I had to make him dance a little bit and made the shot.
New Bears head coach Matt Nagy was asked to compare Tyreek Hill (whom he coached in Kansas City) and Bears running back Tarik Cohen, and Nagy compared Cohen very favorably to Hill. He said they would probably use Cohen more in the backfield than they did Hill. But certainly Nagy loves Cohen’s speed and versatility and is excited to use him in a variety of ways, moving Cohen around and using that shiftiness out of the backfield in the passing game. I get the sense that you’ll see a more consistent role for Cohen this season, whose skill set seems to fit Nagy’s style more than it did the previous offense.

Nevin Lawson Kids Jersey Thomas is entering the final year of a seven-year, $80.5 million contract and — factoring in base salary and bonuses — would take home $13.5 million in 2018.
In October, Thomas tore his left triceps during a game against the Tennessee Titans, ending a remarkable streak of 10,363 consecutive snaps. He had surgery on Oct. 24, ending his season.
Thomas had said in April that he was experiencing memory loss, but Paxton Lynch Womens Jersey he could not say whether playing in the NFL had caused the problem.
I definitely expect memory loss, Thomas said on In Depth with Graham Bensinger. I’m already seeing memory loss, and maybe that’s just because of my old age or maybe it’s football; it’s hard to tell.
