LeBron James is straight-up disrespectful.

Jaguars owner Shad Khan on his team clinching a playoff berth for the first time since 2007: I’ve been through life when I was a laughingstock, whatever business I was in auto parts or what have you. You have to stay with it. Success comes. It’s a story of perseverance.

The point is that the Warriors can be without the second-best player in the NFL Jerseys Wholesale league, an offensive and defensive juggernaut, and still be the best team. Beyond their two megastars, Klay Thompson is also one of the best shooters and defenders in the league, Draymond Green can do everything, rookie Jordan Bell is quickly becoming a mini-Draymond, and they always have Andre Iguodala to dust off his old bones and make game-winning plays.

Teams like the Rockets can take the notion of threes or layups so far that they outshoot everyone in the league, including the Warriors. They’ve bastardized the offensive idea that Golden State was built on.

But the Rockets can’t match the Warriors on defense, even if they have improved. Even worse, the Warriors can still outshoot them if it comes down to it. Trading points with the Warriors is a surefire way to lose.

No. 3 seed — Jaguars (10-4): First place, AFC South. Jacksonville clinched its first playoff berth in 10 seasons by beating Houston. The Jaguars would love to try to wrap up the division title next week before the Week 17 rematch with the Titans. What’s left: at SF, at TEN

No. 4 seed — Chiefs (8-6): First place, AFC West. Kansas City stayed Cheap Hockey Jerseys
here by beating second-place Los Angeles at home on Saturday. The Chiefs are back on track to lock up the division with one more win or one more loss by both the Raiders and the Chargers, but it would take a lot to move up from No. 4. What’s left: vs. MIA, at DEN

The Golden State Warriors are like Wolverine from the Marvel Universe. Wolverine is one of the most popular characters in comics and one of the most complex. That also makes him one of the most cloned, copied, and bastardized characters.

There are loads of Wolverines. He has at least 15 children, many who share his same abilities, with the bad ones taking his worst behaviors to the extreme. Some are granted more claws; others are supposedly more ruthless. He has just as many cousins and even a handful of clones.

His DNA is taken and he’s cloned a lot because, as his catchphrase goes, I’m the best there is at what I do. And what I do isn’t very nice. And when you have the best at something, it’s hard not to duplicate or bastardize it.

This game registers as a red alert for the Suns, who will face plenty of not-very-fun obstacles here.

That said, here are January’s schedule alert games (apologies in advance to the Denver Nuggets), and below them are recaps of such games for December. January’s slate includes zero national television games and the most severe schedule disadvantage of the season.

Top players will typically get deals from 10-to-13 years long with incentives pushing their contracts into nine-figure territories. Wall’s contract is likely a lucrative one, but it isn’t that. It’s also not the same eight-year deal he was initially offered from the brand. Wall’s return to the brand is a win for him, but he certainly left a bit of money on the table.

For Adidas, Wall’s return is welcome after it missed out on New Nike NFL Jerseys Antetokounmpo. The Bucks’ forward was the biggest sneaker free agent of the year, and the brand went all-out to sign him but fell short after a push from Nike.

The soon-to-be-All-Pro receiver signed a five-year, $81 million deal before the season, and he lived up to the contract this year. Hopkins led the NFL with 13 touchdown receptions and has 96 catches for 1,378 yards. His numbers were especially ridiculous with Watson under center (38 catches for 551 yards and six touchdowns in six starts) but Hopkins has also thrived with Tom Savage and T.J. Yates. — Sarah Barshop

Doyle, who moved into the No. 1 tight end role for the first time in his NFL career this season, had a team-high 80 receptions while consistently being quarterback Jacoby Brissett’s security blanket while he learned the offense on the fly after being acquired from New England a week before the start of the regular season. Doyle caught 75 percent of the passes thrown to him. The 80 receptions are the second MLB Jerseys China most in team history by a tight end. — Mike Wells

there’s a team out there willing to take a chance on Mayfield early in April’s draft.

He said he hold his team ‘Hey, listen, we’re going to bounce back, we’re going to work our (butts) off this week and we’re going to go out and win this game and win this quarter (of the season).’ That was pretty much the conversation. There wasn’t any wavering from anyone about what we wanted to do and what we wanted to accomplish this week. We’re 100 percent all-in on winning this football game.

One NFL coach, however, compared Mayfield to Russell Wilson, who fell to Seattle in the third round largely because of concerns about his size.

It’s like buying a house, the coach said. Get comparables, and they usually stack up pretty close.

Wilson’s slide has turned out pretty well for the Seahawks, and the coach isn’t overly concerned about Mayfield’s behavioral issues. He did caution, however, If he’s going to be the face of your franchise, you’ve got to be careful.

Ian put it in place where only I could reach it, said Boykin, who finished with three receptions for 102 yards and a touchdown. It was a great pass and I was just lucky enough to pull it down on one hand. I’ve got pretty big hands.

LSU coach Ed Orgeron said that Boykin made a great grab but lamented his defense’s other struggles on the play.

We had our best cover guy on him (Jackson) but he’s a big receiver, he said after the Tigers finished the season 9-4. We had two guys on him and missed the tackle. That’s what I’m mostly disappointed with.

While the odds are not in the Bills’ favor, they could make it interesting with a win this week.

Buffalo not only needs to beat the Dolphins at Miami this week, but they also need the Ravens, Titans and Chargers to lose. The Bills already have lost five road games this season, but running back LeSean McCoy has scored seven total touchdowns (five rushing) in six regular-season games against Miami, his most against any NFL team.

Tennessee’s road to the playoffs is simple: Win this week against the Jaguars and the Titans are in. Tennessee is the only playoff-contending team in the AFC that controls its fate.

However, the Jaguars, having already won the AFC South, will not make it easy on their division foes. Jacksonville reportedly will play its starters this week, making life more difficult for the Titans, who’ve lost three straight.

The key to the Titans’ success this week could lie in running back Derrick Henry. The team is 7-0 this season when Henry rushes at least 10 times and 1-7 in games in which he has fewer than 10 carries. The odds certainly are in Tennessee’s favor this week, but the Titans need to take care of business.

The NHL’s annual Winter Classic is billed as a return to hockey’s roots, eschewing a covered arena for brisk cold and unpredictable elements. The kind of pond hockey Buffalo Sabres star Jack Eichel played as a child in North Chelmsford, Massachusetts.

But then one notices the 45,000-plus fans, and the rolls of cotton mimicking snow, and the professional baseball locker room where the players lace up their skates instead of using an old log on the side of a lake, and the television cameras filming a documentary about their preparations, and all the trappings that make this a freakish, hyperbolic imitation of the boys-on-the-frozen-lake aesthetic.

Hence, the challenge for a guy like Eichel at the Winter Classic is the challenge he faces each day in (another) lost season for the Sabres:

Tune it out. Focus on the game in its simplest and purest form, like he would when he and his father would play outdoors until the last beams of the day’s dying light disappeared.

You make so many memories just be being out there, Eichel said. It’s pretty amazing how much better you can get just with some skates and a stick and a puck. You don’t need a lot.
