He teed it up nicely and now the internet is smashing him down the fairway

How did LeBron James think he would escape getting made fun of for his Instagram post after the NBA Finals? How? Especially considering all of the factors involved.

For one he shaved his head to hide his receding hairline; second, the facial expressions are pretty priceless; and finally, it really got popular the day of the Warriors’ championship parade in an attempt to divert attention to LeBron himself.

He teed it up nicely and now the internet is smashing him down the fairway. Just observe what one comedian posted this week on Instagram.

But don’t leave out some other NBA athletes. Giannis Antetokounmpo and his brother got in on the action.

In a move to clear cap space and likely prepare for the arrival of Lonzo Ball, the Lakers are trading guard D’Angelo Russell and center Timofey Mozgov to the Nets for center Brook Lopez and the 27th pick in this year’s NBA Draft, according to The Vertical.

The Lakers will shed the final three years of Mozgov’s four-year, $64 million contract, along with a young starter in Russell, as they begin to target big names via trades or free agency. Lopez is on an expiring contract, making him an unrestricted free agent in 2018, the summer when LeBron James and Paul George will be unrestricted free agents.

Earliest permissible date for clubs to renegotiate or extend the rookie contract of a drafted rookie who was selected in any round of the 2015 NFL Draft. Any permissible renegotiated or extended player contract will not be considered a rookie contract, and will not be subject to the rules that limit rookie contracts.

Astros SP Lance McCullers Jr. to rejoin rotation Saturday, report says

Astros starting pitcher Lance McCullers Jr. is expected to return to the rotation Saturday against the Mariners, according to the Houston Chronicle.

McCullers has been on the disabled list since June 9 due to back pain. He made it through a bullpen session on Monday.

Houston has lost five of its last eight games with McCullers and ace Dallas Keuchel out of the rotation.

McCullers, 23, who has developed into a solid No. 2 starter, has a 2.58 ERA and 89 strikeouts so far this season.

The Astros still have the best record in baseball, but will likely be in the market for a starting pitcher before the July 31 trade deadline.

Washington traded its pick in the draft, No. 52 overall, to New Orleans for point guard Tim Frazier, according to multiple reports. Frazier, 26, will be joining his fifth team in four seasons; he previously was with the Celtics, 76ers andTrail Blazers before joining the Pelicans in March 2016. Last season he averaged 7.1 points and 5.2 assists in 23.5 minutes per game. He made 35 starts as New Orleans dealt with a slew of injuries.

The Clippers have been in contact with several teams, including the Suns, while exploring the market for center DeAndre Jordan, according to ESPN’s Chris Haynes.

Phoenix reportedly shot down discussions with LA regarding a potential trade of Tyson Chandler and the Suns’ No. 4 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft in exchange for Jordan.

NBA Finals 2017: Cavs vs. Warriors series puts season-long debate on rest to bed

Turns out, if you were an NBA team that did not rest players over the course of the six-month regular season, you were not going to play for a championship.

For 82 games, you might have been able to take a holier-than-thou stance, preaching about love of the game and respect for fans. Back in March, All-Star Wizards guard John Wall said the NBA has, kind of gotten a little softer, because of teams propensity to rest stars. Heat president Pat Riley was livid about the resting issue, calling it, a travesty, an absolute travesty, and blatantly so.

Klay Thompson added to Cleveland’s misery by scoring 30 points with six rebounds. Stephen Curry poured in 26 points with 13 rebounds.

Despite allowing Curry to haul in an abnormal amount of rebounds, Cleveland did a better job of playing to its strengths in Game 3. LeBron James muscled his way into the paint to score 39 points with 11 rebounds and nine assists. He also got Draymond Green in some foul trouble.

Haunting chants of MVP were showered upon James whenever his Cleveland faithful had the chance. James was helped by Kyrie Irving, who dazzled with his quick cross-over dribbles and acrobatic finishes at the rim. He finished with 38 points, but shot 0 for 7 from beyond the arc.

NBA Finals 2017: 11 stats to pique your interest

The NBA Finals begin Thursday in Oakland where the Cavaliers take on the Warriors. It’s the third consecutive NBA Finals featuring the two teams (more on that in a moment). Here’s a quick look at some of the interesting facts about the two teams and some of their star players, put together by Opta, the world’s leading sports data provider.

I think at the end of the day, I think everyone talks to officials. I talk to them. But going over the edge isn’t going to win me a championship. I think I’m a pretty smart guy and I learned my lesson, so I went over the edge before, fool me once, you can’t fool me twice.

That response was honest and reflective, which is about all you can hope for. Give credit to the reporter for making it clear he was interested in what Green had to say, and give credit to Green for recognizing that and giving it serious thought.

There was no firing back or evisceration by Green. Sometimes we just need to dig deeper to find something interesting. And when Green talks, there’s usually something waiting below the surface.

At the same time, reliable pieces left Indiana. Receiver Pierre Garcon would have been the perfect complement to T.Y Hilton; instead, he departed in 2012. Safety Antoine Bethea returned to form after leaving Indianapolis. The Colts even lost their Pro Bowl punter. Pat McAfee retired at age 29 in order to pursue writing and pro wrestling careers.

Padres, Wil Myers agree to 6-year extension worth reported $83M

All-Star first baseman Wil Myers and the Padres have agreed on a six-year extension, the team announced Tuesday.

The deal is worth a franchise-record $83 million, FanRag Sports reported, citing unidentified sources.

We’re excited to secure a player with talent like Wil’s for the next six years, Padres general manager A.J. Preller said in a statement. Wil has shown that he wants to be in San Diego and wants to be a Padre, and he is going to be an integral part of our team and the community as we continue to build a championship club.

The Browns are also willing to eat as much as half of Osweiler’s $16 million contract in a trade scenario. Kay Cabot noted.

While that seems like a smart move by the Browns, it’s unlikely.

Several NFL personnel executives say they doubt anyone will give the Browns a third-round pick for Osweiler and pay him $8 million a year, Kay Cabot wrote. If that could’ve been done, the Texans would’ve done it, they say.

The more likely scenario for the Browns is that they cut Osweiler and someone signs him for about $4 million a year. With offset language in his contract, that would reduce the price of the move up to somewhere between 33 and 64 to about $12 million.

Arizona Wildcats baseball channels ‘Major League’ in spot-on video spoof

If you’re gonna play baseball where Major League was filmed, you might as well take advantage. Well played, Arizona Wildcats.

In a clever promotional video for their 2017 season, the Wildcats channel the cult 1989 baseball film in a near-shot-for-shot remake of the famous spring training arrival scene at Hi Corbett Field, which long-served as the spring training home of the Indians and is now the home of the Wildcats.

I have a food show that’s going to be streaming on Netflix and Hulu, Fielder said. It’s coming out around the beginning of spring training in March, I believe. It’s not just baseball people. It’s a mixture of baseball people, actors, musicians, chefs and whatnot. They bring out different dishes, and at the end of the show, I give the one I like the most the ‘Fielder’s choice.’ It’s good TV.

Fielder, a six-time All-Star, was a vegetarian at one point in his career. Baseball-Reference.com lists his playing height and weight at 5-foot-11, 275 pounds.

In other words, who better than Prince to have a show about the joys of eating?

According to Fielder, actor Chazz Palminteri, singer Jose Feliciano and rapper Xzibit will be guests.

CC Sabathia will also appear. That should be entertaining.

Red Sox renew Mookie Betts’ contract for near-record amount

The Red Sox on Thursday renewed right fielder Mookie Betts with a $950,000 contract for 2017, the second-highest one-year deal of its kind in MLB history, USA Today reported .

Only Mike Trout’s $1 million deal from the Angels in 2014 was bigger for a player with two-plus years of MLB service but not yet eligible for arbitration.

Under baseball’s collective bargaining agreement, players with under three years’ service time have no leverage in negotiations. If such a player, like Betts, is unable to reach a contract agreement with his team, then he can opt to have his contract renewed, perhaps as a way of showing he’s unhappy with the team’s salary offer.

So could Tebow be in line to earn a promotion? There is speculation he could be boosted to the High-A Port St. Lucie Mets, but that likely won’t happen for a while.

According to The State, the Mets have a long-term plan for Tebow and will continue to monitor his improvement.

He has been able to get his foot down on time, working on his timing, and it is finally paying off. He is more consistent, Leger said. When you get a couple hits and find that rhythm at the plate, your confidence also grows. That is what has been happening.

Phillies ready to give Hector Neris save opportunities

The Phillies’ closer situation may not seem like a huge deal under normal circumstances, but they are finally giving their best reliever a chance to shine.

Since trading Ken Giles to the Astros in December 2015, Philadelphia has been struggling to find a consistent presence to close out games. April’s follies alone have epitomized their desperation and cluelessness.

In his first comments since Castro’s passing, Elias criticized the reception people had toward his death.

I didn’t really like the reaction some people had, said Elias through translator Daveson Perez, via WEEI in Boston. They were happy he passed away. But at the end of the day, someone who, in though it was a little bit, helped me out when I was living there for 21 years. I had a normal day when he passed away. I just didn’t like how some people were happy he passed away, because he’s a person, too.

Good or bad, I think he definitely helped a lot of people who are living here today. People who lived in Cuba ate his food, they took what was given to them. To have a party, all of a sudden, during his passing doesn’t seem right to me.

Elias is not alone, Castro’s mixed legacy will be debated for years to come. While he tirelessly defended the poor, he forced Cuba into economic ruin and withheld basic freedoms from millions of Cubans.

Buccaneers sign Nick Folk to compete with Roberto Aguayo

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers haven’t given up on young kicker Roberto Aguayo, but they may be hedging their bet by signing veteran kicker Nick Folk Saturday..

The Bucs were widely ridiculed for drafting Aguayo in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft, and they actually traded up into that spot to select the former Florida State kicker. The rookie struggled last season, hitting only 22 of 31 field goal attempts (71 percent), the lowest percentage of any NFL kicker. He made just four of 11 attempts from beyond 40 yards.

The Cubs don’t have a prototypical leadoff hitter, instead they will likely rely on a combination of Schwarber, Ben Zobrist and possibly Albert Almora Jr.

The Rangers (17-20) have now won four straight games, but still have a lot of ground to make up in the AL West behind the Astros. Starting pitching has been a concern for Texas this season, but Andrew Cashner allowed just one run in six innings Friday, lowering his ERA to 2.43 in the process.

Gallo has been a revolution in the power department this season, but he is still hitting just .203 with a brutal 54 strikeouts in 118 at-bats. His heroics were great, but he needs to become more consistent in the long run.

Saints’ Sean Payton was a Johnny Manziel fan before 2014 NFL Draft

The Saints reportedly are interested in bringing quarterback Johnny Manziel back to the NFL, fresh off coach Sean Payton reportedly having a breakfast meeting last month with the Browns’ 2014 first-round pick.

In the first inning, Archer fired a first-pitch 97 mph fastball well behind Bautista’s back, resulting in a staredown between the two. Home plate umpire Jim Wolf issued warnings to both teams and Bautista flew out to right field on the third pitch of the at-bat. As he headed to the dugout, Bautista exchanged words with the Rays’ right-hander.

The game continued without further incident.

Afterward, Archer said the ball simply got away from him. Bautista admitted he wasn’t sure about Archer’s intent.

Gibbons, though, likened the ordeal to last week’s debacle between Machado and Red Sox reliever Matt Barnes, who threw a pitch that came dangerously close the the Orioles slugger’s head. It was apparent retaliation for Machado having injured Boston’s Dustin Pedroia earlier in the series on a controversial slide.

Barnes received a four-game suspension and was fined.

On Saturday, Blue Jays pitcher Joe Biagini threw an inside pitch that caught the Rays’ Steven Souza Jr. on his left hand. Biagini’s pitch did not seem to be intentional.

Souza suffered only a contusion and is day to day.
