Dario Saric didn't need to apologize to Cavs, according to old LeBron James quote

Dario Saric didn't need to apologize to Cavs, according to old LeBron James quote

Jordan Clarkson and LeBron James have only been teammates for a short while so it may take some time until they get on the same page.

Clarkson took exception to Dario Saric throwing down a dunk in the waning seconds of last night's Sixers victory over the Cavs on the road in Cleveland. He threw the ball at Dario's back and got ejected from the game.

Clarkson defended his actions after the game, "If anybody says different or they want to think they would’ve done something different or anything else, they’re lying, especially if it was that point in the game."

"They know what's up. That's it," Clarkson said.

Let's take a trip back to last season when Warriors rookie Jordan Bell threw down an impressive dunk against the Mavs in garbage time to which Dallas coach Rick Carlisle took exception. LeBron spoke out about it.

"Play hard to the final buzzer," James said then.

Chris Webber agreed on the TNT telecast. 

"That's wack," Webber said of Clarkson. "Win the game."

"In my head, the Cavaliers should play some D. How 'bout that?"

Saric apologized after the game, as you can see above, but he didn't need to.

Chase Utley receives Father's Day gifts from his … Dodgers teammate

On May 20, Chase Utley indicated that his Dodger teammates have started calling him dad, so it stands to reason that on Father’s Day, they would come bearing gifts for the oldest position player in the National League.

Utley posted these two photos to his Instagram Story today showing gifts from teammate Kike Hernandez, which includes one awesome T-shirt.

In addition to his fake teammate son, Utley also has two sons, six-year-old Benjamin and three-year-old Max, who got to take part in a very special art project for their dad. Chase gave his sons a pair of white cleats to color on, which he wore for today’s game against the Giants.

They turned out how you’d expect, which is a pretty cool thing for Chase to wear on Father’s Day.

If you can’t get enough cuteness from members of the 2008 Phillies, there’s a video of Cole Hamels having tea with his five-year-old daughter, Reeve, that will melt your heart.

Baseball is a sport that can uniquely bring families together, whether someone is your real dad or just the father figure in the clubhouse.

Cole Hamels having tea with his daughter on Father's Day is ridiculously adorable

OK, so the caption of Fox Sports Southwest's video is maybe a little misleading.

"The absolute CUTEST thing you will see this Fathers Day is Cole Hamels having tea with his daughter!" the caption reads.

I'm guessing that, if you're a dad, the cutest thing you'll see this Father's Day is your own kid(s). 

But man, this is an adorable video.

Former Phillie (and 2008 World Series MVP) Cole Hamels and his wife Heidi adopted five-year-old Reeve, one of their four children, from Ethiopia as a baby after she was abandoned at birth, found alone in a field by the police and placed in an orphanage. In the video, she asks Cole a series of rapid-fire questions and looks like she's having an absolute blast hanging out with her dad. So does Cole.

"If you were retired, what would you do?" Reeve asks.

"How 'bout I'd just like to be a dad, would that be good?" Hamels responds.
