Video: Lakers’ LeBron James Narrates Nike Commercial About Coming Back From COVID-19 Pandemic
05/25/2020 11:08am

LeBron James is a multi-talented force of nature. On the basketball court, he is arguably one of the greatest players ever to play the game. Off the court, hes a philanthropist, building the I Promise School in his hometown of Akron, Ohio for at-risk children to get an education. In addition to his other charity ventures, James is a businessman, an actor, a producer, a host, a storyteller, and now, a voice-over narrator. James lent his voice to a new Nike commercial that premiered over the Memorial Day weekend on social media. The advertisement features other Nike athletes like Tiger Woods, Serena Williams, Rafael Nadal, Paul George, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Naomi Osaka, all coming back from adversity in their respective sports to win and triumph. For James, it was the Cleveland Cavaliers 3-1 deficit to the then reigning World Champion Golden State Warriors during the 2016 NBA Finals. Facing elimination in three consecutive games, James led the Cavaliers to one of the greatest comebacks in NBA Finals history, and gave the city of Cleveland their first championship in any professional sport in 52 years. The message the commercial is trying to relay is a positive message of perseverance, courage, and overcoming adversity. Its a poignant message for people all over the world, especially during the current COVID-19 pandemic that has taken the lives of over 350,000 people worldwide as of the date of this publication.The timing of the commercial coincidentally aligns with the announcements across the globe that sports are slowly beginning to return. In Germany, the Bundesliga soccer league has already resumed its season, with many leagues across Europe reopening in the coming weeks.In the United States, UFC returned in May, as did NASCAR last week. Both did not have fans in attendance. Major League Baseball is currently in negotiations between the league and the MLBPA to open its season in July, and the NBA is entrenched in conversations with Disney World in Orlando, Florida to host the eventual return of the NBA season.If and when the NBA season resumes, James and the Lakers are one of the favorites to win the 2019-20 NBA title. In the Nike commercial, James final words are: We are never too far down to come back. Those words are apropos not only for everyone in societyduring the coronavirus pandemic, but could also be applicable to James if hecan bring the Lakers back from the brink and win the franchises 17thNBA title in just his second season in Los Angeles. The entirety of the Nike commercial narrated by LeBron Jamescan be seen below:This story uses functionality that may not work in our app. Click here to open the story in your web browser.

Keselowski Wins 600 to Extend Johnson’s Losing Streak
05/25/2020 5:46am

Brad Keselowski, in a contract year and trying to up his value in free agency, gave Roger Penske a victory on what should have been the most celebrated day in motorsports but was instead just a 6-plus hour NASCAR show. Keselowski extended Jimmie Johnsons losing streak to 102 races by holding off the seven-time NASCAR champion in overtime early Monday to win the Coca-Cola 600, the longest race on the NASCAR schedule. It was the first win for Keselowski this season, his first Coca-Cola 600 victory and the first win at this event for Ford since 2002. Keselowski celebrated as he usually does by waving a giant American flag out his window during his victory burnouts on the frontstretch of Charlotte Motor Speedway. When he first got out of the car for his network interview, the silence at the track was a downer. I was kind of bummed. I wanted to win the 600 my whole life and wanted to win in front of everybody, Keselowski said. But thats not always how it works. I know there are fans that wish they could be in the stands.In these unusual times of the coronavirus pandemic, NASCAR is still adapting in its return to racing a full week ago. This event was its third Cup race in seven days all without spectators and limited media access. Wearing a white Team Penske face mask, Keselowski went to the empty infield media center for a post-race news conference over Zoom. Unable to hear the questions, he shouted into the computer. Can you talk really loud he yelled. My ears are ringing. The Sunday before Memorial Day is a supposed to be a smorgasbord of motorsports that begins with Formula One at the Monaco Grand Prix, then IndyCar and the Indianapolis 500, followed by NASCAR and its longest race on the calendar.The coronavirus pandemic has wiped out the first part of F1s schedule and, like IndyCar, it is still waiting to start its season. Penske, the new owner of Indianapolis Motor Speedway, has moved the Indy 500. It marks the first time since 1946 the 500 is not being run on Memorial Day weekend.NASCAR was able to resume its season under a health plan approved by state officials that allowed the sport to resume after a 10-week hiatus. NASCAR ran three events in South Carolina, and the Coca-Cola 600 kicks off four consecutive days of racing at Charlotte.A rain delay of nearly 90 minutes during the first stage of the race pushed the finish into Monday, but it still ended up just fine for Penske, the owner of Keselowskis car who should have spent Sunday celebrating his first Indy 500 as owner of the national landmark. This is one of the biggest days for him, Keselowski said. Winning never hurts. This is my 30th win and I think I have another 30 in me.Johnson finished second, one spot ahead of devastated Hendrick Motorsports teammate Chase Elliott, as Chevrolet is still seeking its first win in the three Cup races since NASCAR resumed. But almost two hours after the race, NASCAR disqualified Johnson because his Chevrolet failed post-race inspection.We think something mustve broken, but wont know until we get it back to the shop, said Johnson crew chief Cliff Daniels. Tough news after a strong night.Elliott had a comfortable lead and was coasting to the win when Hendrick Motorsports teammate William Byron spun with a tire problem.Thats got to be a joke, Elliott said over his radio.Elliott was wrecked by Kyle Busch trying to race for the win at Darlington Raceway on Wednesday night. It led to Elliott flipping Busch the bird at Darlington. This time, he was briefly consoled by Busch as he climbed from his car on pit road. But he was openly disappointed for the second time in four days. I was a lap-and-a-half away from winning the 600, Elliott said. This week has been pretty unfortunate, we have had some tough losses.His race was snatched from Elliott by the caution for Byron and then the pit decisions that followed. Elliott pitted and Keselowski led a train of eight cars that stayed on the track. He lined up in front of Alex Bowman on the inside line with Johnson retiring from Cup racing at the end of the season on the bottom ahead of Keselowski teammate Ryan Blaney. Keselowski got the push to get into clean air and denied Johnson a victory.I feel like I have thrown this race away a handful of times and I thought we were going to lose it today, Keselowski said. I have lost it the way Chase lost it and it really stinks. And today we finally won it that way.

Woods, Manning Win Over Brady, Mickelson in Golf Charity Match as Good as Real Thing
05/25/2020 2:32am

Tom Brady delivered the shot of the match that made it easy to forget the rest of his swings. Tiger Woods didnt miss a fairway and earned a small measure of revenge against Phil Mickelson.The PGA Tour is set to return in just over two weeks, and it has a tough act to follow.Woods lagged a long birdie putt close enough that his partner, Peyton Manning, didnt have to putt. That secured a 1-up victory over Mickelson and Brady in The Match: Champions for Charity.The goal was to raise $10 million or more for COVID-19 relief funds, and online donations sent money climbing toward about twice that much.This made-for-TV exhibition would have been worth pay-per-view, the model Woods and Mickelson used for a $9 million winner-take-all match in Las Vegas over Thanksgiving weekend in 2018 that Mickelson won in a playoff under lights. It felt forced, lacked banter and turned out to be free because of technical issues.Throw in two NFL greats in Brady and Manning, and this allowed viewers to ride along for 18 holes at Medalist Golf Club among four of the biggest stars in sport.Justin Thomas pitched in as an on-course reporter, bringing a mixture of humor and insight with the right amount of words.Woods and Manning took the lead on the third hole and never trailed, building a 3-up lead in four balls on the front nine, with Manning making two birdies one was a net par.Brady, whose six Super Bowl titles are more than any NFL quarterback in history, took a beating on social media and in the broadcast booth from Charles Barkley, who twice offered $50,000 of his own money toward charity if Brady just hit the green on a par 3. He missed so far right it would be comparable to a pass that landed three rows into the stands.New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton weighed in on Twitter, noting Brady signing as a free agent with Tampa Bay by saying he liked the Florida Brady much better.Brooks Koepka offered $100,000 if Brady could just make a par.One shot shut everyone up. Never mind that Brady had to take a penalty drop before getting back to the fairway on the par-5 seventh. With his fourth shot, with Barkley needling him relentlessly, Bradys shot landed beyond the pin and spun back into the cup.Shut your mouth, Chuck, said Brady, whose microphone piece dangled off the back of his pants.Woods still thought he won the hole with a 25-foot eagle putt that instead spun hard off the back of the lip. All that, and they ended up halving the hole.Donations for COVID-19 relief funds kept piling up, and the entertainment didnt stop even as the rain returned. It caused a 45-minute delay at the start, and as Woods said on the practice range, I dont normally play in conditions like this.Mickelson brought out his Tiger Slayer putter that he used to shoot 64 at Pebble Beach in 2012, the last time they were in the final group on the PGA Tour. Woods shot 75 that day. It didnt help Lefty with a few critical birdie putts to square the match, though he rolled in a 15-foot par putt to stay 1 down with two to play.The back nine was modified alternate shot all players hit tee shots, and it was alternate shot from there. It was key for the quarterbacks to find the fairway for the pros to hit shots into the green, and Brady came through until the 18th. Coronavirus Pandemic and SportsNASCARMay 24NASCAR All Alone on Motorsports Biggest Day of RacingFloridaMay 23NBA in Talks to Possibly Resume Season at Walt Disney World ResortWoods was playing for the first time since Feb. 16 when he finished last at Riviera in Los Angeles. He chose not to play the next four weeks with his back not feeling just right, and then the pandemic shut down golf and sports worldwide.Woods looked sharp for the most part, with his game and his words. Mickelson on the fifth hole asked Woods to mark his ball from some 80 yards away.You want me to mark with a U.S. Open medal, said Woods, a three-time champion of the only major Mickelson hasnt won.Do you have one I have some silver ones, Mickelson said, referring to his record six runner-up finishes.Mickelson boasted about taking Woods down on his home course at Medalist, and now their TV matches are tied at 1, even with each getting a little help. Mickelson says he was a little nervous on the front nine until he found his groove, driving the green on the par-4 11th with Brady making a 20-footer for eagle that began their rally.Phil said he was nervous. I know Tom and I were comparing notes, Manning said. To be behind the ropes in these guys worlds, to be in the arena with them, it was really a special experience. I was not comfortable the entire time. Knowing $20 million was raised and helping people going through tough times, it was an honor to be invited.Its something Ill always remember.
