NFL worst-to-first candidates: Which teams could make big leaps in 2018? More When former Buccaneers and Falcons center Joe Hawley left the game of football, he decided to give away most of his possessions, buy a van and hit the road with his dog.
Their gamble has not paid off: Gregory has played in just 14 career games, with no starts, one sack and 20 total tackles. He has not played in a game since the 2016 regular-season finale, playing the final two games of that season after back-to-back suspensions, four games, then 10 more, after violations of the drug policy. The NFL has 60 days to render a decision on reinstatement.
“To know where I come from, small city 35 miles south of here, and to hear I’m in the same category or talked about and jumping these greats in the playoffs, it’s pretty cool,” James said. “You hear the scoring, the field goals made, and for a kid that really doesn’t care much about scoring.”
The Cleveland Cavaliers star came into the night averaging a league-leading 32.9 points per game in the 2018 postseason, the second-highest scoring average he has posted in the playoffs (James averaged 35.3 points in 14 games in 2009).
During the 2017 conference finals, also against the Boston Celtics, James passed Michael Jordan for No. 1 on the all-time postseason scoring list.
James also ranks first in all-time playoff minutes, first in all-time playoff steals, third in all-time playoff assists, seventh in all-time playoff rebounds and is tied for 16th in all-time playoff blocks.
