YOUNGSTOWN — Senior guard Melinda Trimmer scored in double figures for a seventh straight game in leading Youngstown State past Milwaukee, 64-58, in a Horizon League quarterfinal Wednesday night in front of 1,382 fans at the Beeghly Center.,LOS ANGELES (AP) — LeBron James moved past Michael Jordan into fourth place on the NBA’s career scoring list Wednesday night.,James, who entered the NBA at 18 years old compared to 21 for Jordan, began the night averaging 27.1 points per game in 1,189 games over 16 seasons with Cleveland, Miami and the Lakers.,Just eight days ago, James moved into 10th place on the assists list, becoming the first player in league history to make the top 10 in points and assists.,James began the night averaging 27.0 points, 8.7 rebounds and 8.0 assists while hitting 51 percent of his shots and playing 35.7 minutes per game for the Lakers.

They cheered him, but only after booing him.They stood, but not all of them, and not immediately, and not for long.He surely heard them, but never acknowledged them.LeBron James passed Michael Jordan to move into fourth place on the NBAs all-time scoring list Wednesday night, leaping over the legend in a monumental accomplishment that felt like an enormous dud.Epitomizing this embarrassment of a season, the history-rich Lakers couldnt even enjoy making history.It wasnt the franchises fault.,The NBA wouldnt let them stop the game immediately, so at the first stoppage of play after James layup against the Denver Nuggets with 5 minutes 38 seconds to play in the second quarter gave him 32,294 points two more than Jordan an attempted celebration ensued.The scoreboard displayed a video.,The fans stood and cheered, but it was mostly politely, and somewhat uncertainly, as if they were applauding an impromptu speech given by a distant uncle at an acquaintances wedding.Lakers' LeBron James, left, is congratulated by Rajon Rondo after his basket against the Denver Nuggets passing Michael Jordan on the all-time scoring list on Wednesday at Staples Center.James was never given the game ball.,From his initial decision to forgo an introductory news conference last summer to his Culver City prank pizza tweet to his pregame announcements of movie releases in the middle of playoff pushes, he has never really reached out to the fans, and now they are holding him accountable for the Lakers failure.On probably the most unusual milestone night in Lakers history, so much felt different, so much was lost.This passing of Jordan should have been another brick in the foundation of a local debate that James is the greatest player ever.,But even with this monumental history looming, Lakers fans are focused on a different, more uncomfortable milestone.At his current rate, James will easily pass Bryant next season for third place on the all-time list with 32,311 points, hes 1,332 points behind, and he has averaged 2,042 points in the previous three seasons.On the night he passes Bryant, if the Lakers are still struggling, can you imagine how conflicted fans will be?

Therefore it is unsurprising that any given politician, with or without any genuine affinity for the game, may look to football in order to gain acceptance from an electorate comprised largely of the people with whom they share the least common ground.,What it is, though, particularly in Cameron’s case, is manipulative and if not intentionally dishonest then blatantly obfuscatory, and their fatal mistake, prior to their wielding of football as some form of Machiavellian weapon of mass incorporation, is their assumption that football is a simple game and the people who watch it 0 the lesser-educated working class – are similarly uncomplicated.,Read  |  Sunderland ‘Til I Die and the neglected communities reliant on football as a means of escape
