“King James’ speaks out

He has been hailed as ‘King James’ from the moment he burst onto the basketball scene as a teen, and long before Akron’s LeBron James led the hometown Cleveland Cavaliers to their first NBA title he has lived up to that moniker. Thus when ‘King James’ holds royal court during a media session, all eyes and ears are on him. He’s sports version of EF Hutton, when he speaks people listen. Monday was no exception when the defending NBA champions began their season with Media Day. A calm, relaxed James made his way to the podium following head coach Tyronn Lue and GM David Griffin. Most probably wanted to know what James had in plan for an encore to the first title in Cavs history and the first fo

Cleveland blows 20-0 lead, lose 25-20 to Baltimore

The Cleveland Browns lost their home opener against the Baltimore Ravens by a final score of 25-20, dropping to 0-2 on the season. Things got off to an illustrious start in the first quarter for Cleveland. Browns QB Josh McCown led his offense right down the field, converting three straight third down passes, the last of which was a 31-yard touchdown pass to rookie WR Corey Coleman in the back of the end zone. The Browns’ defense made quick work of the Ravens, and when the offense got the ball back, RB Isaiah Crowell took it straight up the middle for an 85-yard touchdown run, the second longest in team history. It came on the same day the statue for Hall of Fame running back Jim Brown was u

BROWNS UNVEIL STATUE OF HALL OF FAME RUNNING BACK JIM BROWN

CLEVELAND (AP) -- For one more Sunday, Jim Brown felt the kind of emotional surge that made him an NFL legend. The greatest player to wear a Cleveland Browns jersey, and in the conversation as the best in league history, Brown was immortalized as the team unveiled a bronze statue of the running back's likeness outside FirstEnergy Stadium. The 8-foot-tall sculpture, which weighs more than 2,000 pounds, depicts No. 32 at the top of his game. He's in motion, the football tucked tightly under his left arm, his right arm cocked to ward off an oncoming tackler. Although the tribute came 51 years after Brown walked away from the game at the peak of his career to pursue an acting career in Hollywood

Huge Oklahoma D-line will challenge Buckeyes' ground game

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio State coach Urban Meyer admittedly worries about everything, and near the top of the list this week is how the Buckeyes are going to run the ball Saturday against Oklahoma's huge and experienced defensive front. After breaking school records for offense in its first game, No. 3 Ohio State (2-0) started slow last week against Tulsa and didn't get the train back on the tracks until the second half. Meyer knows the Buckeyes can't afford a slow start against the No. 14 Sooners, especially when it comes to establishing the run against their heavy, run-stuffing defensive linemen Charles Walker (6-foot-2, 304 pounds), Jordan Wade (6'3", 311) a

RG3 injured, Browns to start Josh McCown in home opener

The Browns Robert Griffin III experiment did last nearly as long as Johnny Manziel, but the pain of Griffin’s opening week shoulder injury is going to linger for a while. If Brown fans could not think the season could start any worse than that 29-10 thumping at the hands of the Eagles in Philadelphia, then just wait for what lies ahead. Griffin III will miss at least the next 8 games with a broken bone in his left shoulder suffered in the final minutes while he was scrambling towards the sideline. Although he likely will not need surgery, but the injury prone former No. 2 pick out of Baylor, may miss the season. He will be re-evaluated in 3-4 weeks. McCown actually was the Browns best optio

Trump continued his African American outreach on Thursday with a tightly scripted visit to Cleveland Arts and Social Sciences Academy charter school. Trump’s return to Cleveland, came just a week after he took his campaign to a Detroit black church where he awkwardly danced with the congregation.
