Good morning, Sports fans!  Davey Mac here with your first Sports Report of the week!  We’ve got scores, news, and…um…a new Yankee “signing.”  But first!  We’ve got some seriously good audio (and video) that you rarely get access to as a fan.  The Los Angeles Lakers were playing the Houston Rockets when Rockets head coach Ime Udoka criticized LeBron James for complaining too much during the game.

LeBron shot back at Udoka…and then it was on.  Udoka challenged LeBron and ended up calling him a “soft ass boy.”  WOW!  You never heard that kind of thing about Jordan or Bird or Magic when they were on the court.  Check out the video below.

So, was Udoka right or wrong for going after LeBron?  Should megastars who bring a lot of eyeballs (and money) to the NBA be talked to differently by coaches?  Or is it all part of the game?  I don’t know…but I’m sure LeBron isn’t gonna be sending Udoka a holiday present any time soon!  And now on to the Scoreboard!

  • Jets Lose To Atlanta As Offense Struggles Again

    Let’s start with football…as the Jets lost to the Falcons…13 to 8…and yet again it’s about the offense. Tim Boyle struggled…only throwing for 148 yards, 0 touchdowns, and one interception. The Jets drop to 4 and 8. After the game…head coach Robert Saleh looked practically despondent and certainly at a loss for words. Might be time for him to go.
