After NBA All-Star game, LeBron James fires back at Fox News host

Today 17:16 GMT

On the web series "Rolling With the Champion" last Thursday, NBA superstar LeBron James offered an unfiltered opinion of President Trump. "Must they run their mouths like that?" she said.

CBSN anchor Vladimir Duthiers reports that after an MVP performance in last night's NBA All-Star Game, the three-time NBA champion addressed the issue. "It'd been the same as telling Jackie Robinson to shut up and slide into home base, or Jesse Owens to shut up and just go triple jump," James said.

Fergie criticized for rendition of U.S. national anthem at NBA All-Star Game

Today 17:16 GMT

Fergie tried something different with her version of the U.S. national anthem at the NBA All-Star Game, and not everybody was cheering.

The Forum in nearby Inglewood, California, was the site of arguably the most famous national anthem in sports history during another NBA All-Star Game 35 years ago. Marvin Gaye’s touching rhythm-and-blues version of The Star-Spangled Banner at the 1983 game was initially criticized, but has since gained widespread acceptance as a groundbreaking musical performance.

Devante Smith-Pelly was at a rookie tournament in British Columbia eight years ago when he first heard a fan yell that he should play basketball.

He notified the off-ice official sharing the penalty box with him, and he walked up to the glass with his stick to confront the fans.

Tottenham have capacity to win the Champions League, says Lucas Moura

Today 17:16 GMT

Lucas Moura has claimed Tottenham have the talent to produce a historic season and win the Champions League for the first time.

Despite the disappointment of drawing away to League One’s bottom club, Moura insists performances such as the Champions League draw at Juventus demonstrate Spurs’ potential to crown the campaign with silverware. Having compared the respective talents of PSG and his new club this season, and earned a 2-2 draw in Turin last week, the Brazilian believes Pochettino’s players should dream of winning the first Champions League in Tottenham’s history.

Romelu Lukaku must show he can make his mark on the biggest stages

Today 17:17 GMT

The question is how he plays: in the destructive manner he did against Huddersfield or the altogether less threatening way he sometimes does on high-profile occasions?

The others came in Everton’s colours, though, and if Lukaku shrugged off passing a landmark that has eluded many a Manchester United striking signing – from failures such as Radamel Falcao, Diego Forlán and Garry Birtles to successes such as Carlos Tevez and Javier Hernández – José Mourinho probably approved of that attitude.
