Kevin Love Gets Fouled On A Game Winning Shot Attempt “NO CALL”!!


One of the biggest no calls of the season happened last night as Kevin Love attempted a game winning three to try to give the Wolves a win. Dallas Mavericks forward, Shawn Marion hits Love’s arm as he attempts the shot in front of two referees but nobody blows their whistle?! The NBA issued a statement saying the refs blew the call but that doesn’t change the result of the game.

Lebron Jame Is Quietly Destroying The NBA


LEBRON

If you haven’t been watching the Miami Heat and Lebron James, you may not know he has been playing at his best. Nobody thought the 2 time Champ, 4 time MVP could get any better but he has started this season very efficiently. If you remember last season James went on a roll during the month of February averaging an unheard of 64% from the field. He continued his great shooting averaging 56.3% from the field and 40.7% from three. His shooting helped the Heat capture their second straight championship and a second straight finals MVP for Lebron.

This season he has started red hot again as he is shooting a career best 61.7% from the field and a ridiculous 51.7% from three. This shooting has him third in scoring averaging 27 points per game right behind Kevin Love and current leader Kevin Durant. Last night may have been his best game as he torched the Dallas Mavs for 39 points on 14-18 shooting for 77.8%. Take a look at his shot chart below as we may see more of this from King James in the future.
