What Are the Odds...


It's early Sunday morning, the first week of the NFL season, and we know if you're awake, you're probably wondering if your bookie is too. Gotta get those wagers in before heading down to the lot, right?

Courtesy of Bodoglife.com, we have some of the odds for the full season stats and occurrences this year. We got these 10 days ago, so there may have been some changes since then, but whether you gamble or not, it's still interesting to see the Eagles by the numbers, both as a team and individually. Lots more after the jump.

Asked about LeBron James after Sixers game, Kyrie Irving says @*#^*!#%&*

Apparently Kyrie Irving doesn't want to talk about LeBron James.

After the Celtics' win over the Sixers on Friday, a fan asked Irving, "Where's LeBron?"

Irving's response ... NSFW ...

WARNING: The video contains offensive language. But if that kind of thing doesn't bother you, you can watch it here.

Irving was asked about the incident by reporters Saturday.

So what he's basically saying is "sorry, not sorry."

With the video circulating around social media, expect Irving to hear from the league.
