When James went to Miami in 2010, he saw his shot total fall by two to three per game

Over the first seven years of his career, James shot just 31 percent on shots from 10 to 15 feet and 36 percent on those from 16 feet to the 3-point line. Over the past seven seasons, he boosted that to 40 percent from 10-15 feet and 41 percent on the longer jumpers. Though it’s a battle he still fights — including last season as his shooting numbers took a hit — James worked to refine his balance so he has a repeatable form. He increased his field goal percentage for seven straight seasons, topping out at 57 percent in 2013-14.

In the 2006-07 season, James shot just 39 percent on post-up plays, averaging 1.9 of them per game. In those days James would often not fight for position in the post and allow himself to be pushed away from the hoop — even by smaller defenders. By 2009-10 he was hitting 57 percent of his post-up shots, though he was still averaging fewer than two per game. In 2013-14, James led the league in post-up shooting at 56 percent and had boosted his numbers to four chances per game.

Jones pointed out then — and again Andre Roberts Authentic Womens Jersey Tuesday — that Beckham and Green were very different players. He also said that he’d take Green, who currently leads the league in receiving yards per game, over any receiver in the league.

“When you talk about A.J. and you talk Beckham, it’s two different players,” Jones said Tuesday. “I’m not taking nothing away from Beckham, but I’m definitely not going to take nothing away from 18.”

Jones singled out Beckham for his ability to generate yards after the catch.

“You have to make sure you tackle him,” Jones said. “He’s a big chunk yard after the catch [receiver]. He runs good routes. He can stretch the field. He’s a Andrew Quarless Authentic Womens Jersey complete receiver.”

Tackling well is something the Bengals haven’t exactly done consistently this season. And while they’re limited in how much they can actually tackle in practice, Jones noted they’d be working on fixing that particular part of their game this week.

“Oh, we’ll be practicing it,” Jones said. “We’ll be practicing it. You can bet that.”

Grabbing back the spotlight from new Golden State star Kevin Durant

Grabbing back the spotlight from new Golden State star Kevin Durant, Curry raised his right arm and pumped his chest all night, howling and pointing as one shot fell after another. He went 16 for 26 overall in his first 40-point performance after leading the NBA with 13 last season.

Warriors fans enjoyed every minute of it, chanting “M-V-P! M-V-P!”

Wade said he still keeps an eye on how the Heat are doing. He wants his former teammates to succeed, just not when he is playing against them.

“I definitely watch when I get an opportunity to watch Bobby Wagner Jersey them play,” Wade said. “One, because it’s a lot of my young guys over there. I want to see them succeed. I want to see Tyler [Johnson] and Justise [Winslow] and all those guys take that next step. I want to see how Hassan [Whiteside] is going to respond to everyone saying this and that about him since he got paid. So I watch that as someone who knows them, then I watch the game as a fan and I watch it as a competitor. I watch it so many different ways.

“I’m not wishing nothing bad on that organization. I have nothing but love for everybody in that organization. And I want them to be successful, just as we all say, just not when they play the Bulls. But besides that I want them to be successful.”

Wade sounded truly appreciative of how fans embraced him during Bradley Sowell Jersey his time in Miami. It should make for one of the most interesting scenes in the NBA this year when he is introduced for the first time as a Bull in Miami.

“My message to them is what it’s been all summer: Thank you,” Wade said. “Thank you for supporting me in the great times. Thank you for supporting me in the bad times for 13 years. On and off the court. Allowing me to have my privacy away from the game and supporting me in everything I did in the community. They supported me when I did good in the season, they supported me when I played bad. The biggest word I can say to them is that I appreciate it and just thank them.”

Tom Brady can’t win the MVP because he cheated, says bitter ex-Patriots employee Reggie Wayne

Since Tom Brady returned from his four-game suspension to start the season, he’s played flawlessly. Still, former NFL wide receiver Reggie Wayne said Brady shouldn’t be considered for MVP because of DeflateGate.

Wayne, now an analyst with NFL Network, said Andre Reed Authentic Womens Jersey Brady should not be named MVP, no matter what his level of play is this season.

Brady has completed 73.1 percent of his passes over four games for an average of 329.8 yards per game, 12 touchdowns, and no interceptions. The Patriots are 4-0 since his return. If he continues to play at this level, or close to it, it’s difficult to imagine anyone but Brady being named MVP at the end of the season.

Wayne spent his entire 14-season career with the Indianapolis Colts. After the Colts announced they would not re-sign him prior to the 2015 season, Wayne signed a one-year contract with the Patriots.

His time in New England was brief. Wayne asked to be released by the team before the start of the regular season, and the Patriots obliged.

From source close to Wayne “asked for release, work environment to tough….not fun”

Wayne sat out the 2015 season and then announced his retirement.

The Colts and Patriots have a longtime rivalry that was at its peak at the height of Wayne’s career, when Peyton Manning and Tom Brady were pitted against each other. The Colts got knocked out of the playoffs three times by Brady and the Patriots during Wayne’s career.
