The Lead – Can’t We All Just Get Along?
Don’t these guys know it’s a holiday when we’re supposed to set aside our differences? The Kings and Bucks got into it after the game in the hallway with DeMarcus Cousins and Jarryd Bayless reportedly involved. Jason Kidd also momentarily lost it, knocking the ball out of a referee’s hand and getting tossed.

Tensions boiled over into college hoops as well, with Rhode Island coach Dan Hurley allegedly cussing out Maryland in the handshake line and Colorado’s Tory Miller ejected for biting an Air Force player… maybe he just couldn’t wait for that Thanksgiving feast.

Elsewhere in Hoops
#5 Kansas defeated #19 Vanderbilt in the final of the Maui Invitational… while Bill Walton’s Long, Strange Trip took him to Hawaii where he got lei’d and was delighted about it… The 76ers somehow found a way to keep their record losing streak alive, blowing an 11 point 4th quarter lead on the road in Boston… John Wall wasn’t too happy with Randy Wittman after the Wiz collapsed in Charlotte…
Frank Gifford’s family revealed the former NFL legend had CTE… Joseph Randle is in trouble with the law, again… the Rams are optimistic over Stedman Bailey’s health as he recovers from being shot… Monday Night Raw ratings are falling off a cliff… the Browns aren’t totally giving up on Johnny Football, at least not yet… you’ll want to take the time to read Spencer Hall on the Thanksgiving holiday.
Mind-Blowing Stat of the Day
LeBron is dominating the 4th quarter this year, so eat your heart out Skip Bayless and all your CLUTCH GENE nonsense.
