This championship series unfolded in the NBA’s quarantine bubble in Orlando, Florida, where teams spent three months finishing out a season that had been brought to a halt in March by the coronavirus pandemic.James said the isolation of the bubble made this title run a unique challenge.”It played with your mind,” he said. “It played with your body. You’re away from some of the things that you’re so accustomed to to make you be the professional that you are.”So this is right up there,” he said of where he ranks his first championship with the Los Angeles Lakers, after title runs with the Miami Heat in 2012 and 2013 and the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2016. The sight of LeBron James hoisting an NBA championship trophy as Most Valuable Player of the title series was no surprise — but the path he took to a fourth career crown was anything but usual.”I can’t sit here and say one is more challenging than the other or one is more difficult than the other,” James said after capturing his fourth NBA title with a third team, and his fourth Finals MVP award.”I can just say that I’ve never won with this atmosphere. None of us have. We’ve never been a part of this.” ‘We want respect’ It was his 11th Finals triple-double, and he came close to averaging a triple-double in the series with 29.8 points, 11.8 rebounds and 8.5 assists per game as he made good on the promise he made to Lakers president Jeanie Buss when he arrived in Los Angeles in 2018.Injury in his first season with the storied club saw them miss the playoffs. Now they are tied with the Boston Celtics for most titles in history with 17.”We just want our respect,” James said as the Lakers accepted the trophy on the confetti-strewn court. “[General manager Rob Pelinka] wants his respect. Coach [Frank] Vogel wants his respect. Our organization wants their respect. Laker Nation wants their respect.”And I want my damn respect, too,” James said.And he said respect was owing to the NBA, as well, for putting together the Orlando campus — where there were zero positive COVID-19 tests among players — and for facilitating player efforts to speak out on social and racial justice issues.For most of his time in the bubble, James said, he tried to concentrate on his competitive task.”I wanted to keep my energy in the right space,” he said, but added: “Over the last couple days, you definitely thought about it. You thought about just being here, how successful it is.”I think we can all say from the social injustice conversations, the voter suppression, police brutality, to have this platform, have our players be able to unite like that, it’s something that you will miss.” “I heard some rumblings from people that are not in the bubble: ‘Oh, you don’t have to travel, whatever. People just doubting what goes on in here.”This is right up there with one of the greatest accomplishments I’ve had.”James’s four Finals MVPs are second only to the six of Michael Jordan.He’s the first player to win four Finals MVP awards with three different teams.He posted a triple-double of 28 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists in the title-clinching 106-93 victory over the Miami Heat in game six.

Victory at Villa Park on Monday night would establish a six-point gap between the Black Cats and the midlanders with three games of the campaign remaining and all but end their fears of the drop. Di Canio said: “If we win on Monday, we stay up. I have told my players, Monday is a Champions League final. Since the first day we joined together at the beginning of the week, I told them, ‘Take this week as the most important week of the season because if we win on Monday, we stay up and we do it three games in advance.” Sunderland manager Paolo Di Canio has challenged his players to secure their Barclays Premier League status by winning a “Champions League final” at Aston Villa. He continued: “‘It’s probably not mathematical, but we would be very close, so it means that you are capable’. “I told my players, ‘When I came in here, we were nearly strangled – you have turned the season in three games here. You did that, you were capable of winning two in a row. “‘If we win the next one, in three weeks, you have turned completely the season’.” Sunderland looked to be in dire trouble when Di Canio arrived at the Stadium of Light at the end of last month with trips to Chelsea and Newcastle to come ahead of bogey side Everton’s visit to Wearside. However, a narrow defeat at Stamford Bridge was followed by a stunning 3-0 victory at St James’ Park, and a first win over the Toffees in 20 attempts in all competitions left the Black Cats looking upwards rather than over their shoulders. The Italian said: “It doesn’t mean that now we have become a Champions League side, but [victory at Villa would] mean that with three games to go, we could finish in a good position. “Obviously, it’s step by step, but I told them, ‘Think about Monday as a Champions League final, work as hard as you did in the last few weeks because there is a big opportunity to stay in this league with three games to go. ‘Enjoy the last three games and try to get the maximum points we can’.” Press Association
Mark Hughes says QPR’s Julio Cesar is among the best goalkeepers he has ever seen.The Rangers boss, a former Manchester United colleague of Peter Schmeichel and international team-mate of Everton legend Neville Southall, believes Cesar is as good as them both in their prime.“Over the years I had the pleasure of playing with the likes of Schmeichel and Southall, and he’s right up there,” Hughes said.“It’s not only his ability as a keeper. His mentality in the dressing room is huge for us and that’s a benefit we’ll tap into.“He understands what it takes and he drives people around him. He inspires people with his manner and his presence.“He’s on a par with the top keepers in the world in my view.”Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
Brand South Africa hosted a dialogue with Eskom to drive the road safety messaging to young professionals. The two entities partnered in delivering the message to the public.Play Your Part and Lebo Ramodike spent the day promoting car road worthiness in the Free State. (Image: Mathiba Molefe)Brand South Africa reporterEvery year, when the December festive season draws near, Eskom turns an eye towards road safety to ensure its staff and the public play their part in making our roads safer.This year, Brand South Africa joined Eskom Free State in delivering the road safety message on 24 November.Eskom is the state-owned power company responsible for producing most of the country’s electricity.“This morning, Brand SA came to speak to our staff to encourage them to play their part this holiday season, to ensure that they travel safely with their families and friends,” said Stefanie Jansen van Rensburg, Eskom Free State spokesperson.“When we’re on the road it’s very easy to blame other people for their bad habits, but if everyone can play their part, if you can act safely and I can act safely, then our roads would be that much safer.”Many road accidents can be avoided if everyone exercises caution at all times.Checking that your vehicle is roadworthy, making sure you are well-rested, keeping an eye out for reckless drivers as well as making use of all your car’s safety features, such as seatbelts, can go a long way to ensuring the wellbeing of people on the roads.“We all need to remember that the vehicles we are driving are like loaded guns; they have the ability to kill people,” Van Rensburg said. “So we need to handle these vehicles with the utmost care and also make sure that the people in our vehicles are safe by keeping in mind that not everybody will be as careful.”Brand South Africa and Eskom wished all South Africans, residents and visitors a happy festive season. The two state agencies urged everyone to act safely and to play their part in making sure everybody got to their destination and made it home safely ahead of the year to come.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Man City boss Guardiola: Fixture bosses must be Liverpool fansby Paul Vegas7 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester City boss Pep Guardiola has joked the Premier League fixture compilers must be Liverpool fans.City accused the Premier League of threatening the “sporting integrity” of the competition after handing the champions a fixture schedule that could give rivals Liverpool a big advantage in the title race. City’s chief operating officer, Omar Berrada, claimed the fixture scheduling undermined the integrity of the Premier League, with Guardiola joking the authorities were not fans of the double champions.“Maybe the broadcasters are fans for some clubs,” joked Guardiola.“We have meetings with Premier League, managers, UEFA, they are so glad, nice pictures, it doesn’t matter, we have to play.“It is what it is. Since I came here, every season it’s the same, the broadcasters are the bosses, it’s not about us.“But I love to play boxing day, when the families go to the stadiums, the players travel, but the system does not protect the players too much.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say
