See an even better angle of LeBron James' incredible game-winning put-back vs. Clippers
In a statement game for the Los Angeles Lakers against their rival, the Clippers, LeBron James single-handedly took over in the final seconds and delivered not just the game-winning bucket but some stifling defense on both Kawhi Leonard AND Paul George to force a bad shot. © Provided by For The Win In case you missed the game-winner: with under 20 seconds to go, James brought up the ball, took a long jumper that was contested and missed. But with five — FIVE — Clippers around the hoop looking for the rebound, he went right in, grabbed the board and tipped it back in.— sgoldman (@sgoldman)
Want to thank— Edward Turner (@emturner17) for the great memories all these years. Wishing you the best

Media Ink: Mike Golic Jr. On Getting Inked South of 21 and the ElbowI reached out to several personalities whose artwork caught my eye during their shows to ask them about something that can be at times both intensely personal and what they want to speak about the most. They told me behind-the-scenes stories of their decisions to take the plunge -- and in many cases -- continuing to take it over and over again. They opened up about the meaning behind their pieces, the oft-meandering relationship with tattoos and what, if any, impact they have had on their careers.
