Kyrie Irving has been a disaster without LeBron James, but they could still make magic if he gets to Lakers

Kyrie Irving's attempt to prove his own superstar merits outside the orbit of LeBron James has failed miserably. He's been a disaster at every post-Cleveland stop. He screwed up the Celtics, who were a conference finals team before him and a Finals team after him. I would say Irving's super-team Brooklyn venture with Kevin Durant and James Harden has nosedived, but the truth is it never really got off the ground.

Rudy Giuliani’s alleged attacker walks free after charges downgraded

The ShopRite worker arrested for allegedly hitting Rudy Giuliani on the back inside a Staten Island supermarket walked free from court Monday after his charges were downgraded. Daniel Gill, 39, who was still dressed in his ShopRite uniform following his Sunday arrest, kept his head down and refused to answer questions as he left Staten Island Criminal Court after his arraignment Monday. His charges were downgraded to third-degree assault, third-degree menacing, and second-degree harassment over the caught-on-camera attack inside the supermarket.

Ghislaine Maxwell is ‘genuine’ and ‘kind,’ fellow inmate tells judge as she faces up to 55 years

Ghislaine Maxwell is “genuine and kind” and offered to teach fellow inmates yoga, a jailhouse friend wrote to the judge who is set to sentence the convicted sex-trafficker on Tuesday. Tatiana Venegas, who was locked up with Maxwell in Brooklyn’s Metropolitan Detention Center, submitted a handwritten letter in support of her buddy, court filings revealed. Maxwell, 60, has been held at the federal lockup since she was arrested in July 2020. “When Ghislane [sic] Maxwell first arrived in the unit, she introduced herself to everyone with a handshake. ‘Hi, I am Maxwell’ she says with a smile genuine and kind,” Venegas, 31,...

The Nike Kyrie Low 5 Appears In City Edition Nets Colors As Future Remains Uncertain

After three seasons and three failed attempts at an NBA championship, the Brooklyn Nets super-team is now a bonafide failed state. The initial Big Three of Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and Deandre Jordan never reached its potential, with Deandre quickly finding himself out of a rotation and Kyrie Irving being as reliable as a pre-owned Land Rover. The James Harden experiment was short-lived, and it’s clear that the bearded former-MVP made the right choice.
