VIDEO: LeBron Takes Elbow to Back from David Lee, Leaves Game

This can’t be good. David Lee delivers shot to LeBron.

— Mike Petraglia (@Trags) March 28, 2017

LeBron James left this evening’s game versus the Spurs after being elbowed in the back by David Lee following a rebound. LeBron was down on the court for a bit of time, before walking off. There is some debate over whether LeBron was really fouled as hard as his reaction indicated, but at the very least the upper spine is not a comfortable place to be met with force.

As a minor subplot, bring out the psychoanalysis of what this means:

I’m not sure what happened to LeBron. What I am sure of — Kevin Love the only Cav who didn’t get off bench to see what was wrong

At press time, the Cavs are down 92-62 to the Spurs and it goes without saying this has not been a banner evening of basketball for them.

A School Cafeteria Served Chicken Nuggets In A Hot Dog Bun

In a stark reminder that cafeteria lunches have come a long way from that whole ketchup-as-vegetable fiasco of your youth, one intrepid lunch lady offered up chicken nuggets in a hot dog bun.

The culinary masterpiece emerged on Reddit and got picked up on BuzzFeed, where critics noted that the entrée was basically “I give up” in food form.

A photo from Pennsylvania’s Hempfield Area High School cafeteria shows the sandwich, which is being marketed as a “Popcorn Chicken Po-Boy Sandwich.” Who knew lunch ladies could spin that out of what’s clearly dry chicken nuggets on a bare hot dog bun? Todd Rates, the food blogger/student that captured this #foodporn, told BuzzFeed that the sandwich cost $2.75. He didn’t order it up, but his friend did. The verdict? It “tasted pretty good.” Zagat-worthy it isn’t, but as some redditors pointed out, it could be worse.

“That’s a lot of nuggets, when I was in school we wouldn’t even get half of that,” one wrote.

“Ah the infamous ‘birddog,'” wrote another.

Other redditors added that the nugget-sandwich concoction just needed a few condiments or vegetables. It’s not that far off from fast-food chicken sandwiches, either, which rarely have anything apart from meat and bun. The po-boy could be seen as a battered blank slate. All it needs is some sauce and cheese and it could be chicken parm. “Put some bbq sauce on this and it’s totally edible,” one redditor suggested.

The saddest part may be a link that showed school lunches from around the world. In an act of foodie serendipity, the American example even shows chicken nuggets, though they’re not resting on that sweet hot dog bun. In Italy, kids can munch on local fish and caprese salad. In South Korea, there’s a rice dish, kimchi, and even a …read more

DeMar DeRozan leads Raptors past Magic; Toronto wins sixth straight

TORONTO — DeMar DeRozan scored 36 points to lead the Toronto Raptors in a 131-112 rout of the Orlando Magic on Monday night.

Cory Joseph had a double-double with 15 points and a career-high 13 assists as Toronto (45-29) won its sixth straight.

Norman Powell’s shooting was lethal for the Raptors, getting 16 points including four three-pointers. Jonas Valanciunas pulled down nine rebounds to go with 17 points and Serge Ibaka scored 16 points and grabbed seven rebounds in his first game against his former team.

DeRozan was named the Eastern Conference player of the week earlier Monday after averaging 33.3 points, .488 field goal percentage and 5.7 assists over the past three games, all wins for Toronto.

It was a rude homecoming for guard Terrence Ross, who had 17 points for Orlando (27-47). Elfrid Payton led the Magic with 22 points and nine assists.

Ross was drafted by the Raptors eighth overall in 2012 and tied Vince Carter’s franchise record for scoring in a game with 51 points against the Los Angeles Clippers on Jan. 25, 2014. He was traded to the Magic on Feb. 14 with a 2017 first-round pick in exchange for Ibaka.

During team introductions Ross got a round of cheers from the sell-out crowd of 19,800 at Air Canada Centre. The applause slowly turned to boos, however, as Ross led the Magic to an early 7-0 lead with a three-pointer and a field goal.

Ross also received a standing ovation after a video package of his time in Toronto was played during the first TV timeout. The tribute included some of his biggest slam dunks, including …read more
