James went on to finish the game with 44 points, helping his team beat the Trail Blazers, 126-117. He now has 31,425 points in his career.

"When I'm able to do what I love to do, and do it at this level -- and even being mentioned with the greats that have ever played this game -- it just always brings me back to my hometown of Akron, [Ohio]," James told ESPN after the game.

"And knowing where I come from, knowing how hard it was to get to this point -- it's just never being in satisfied mode,” he added.

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Who wouldn't want to host the 2026 Winter Olympics? A lot of places, it turns out.

Calgary, Alberta on Tuesday became the fourth city to turn down the opportunity after its residents voted down a bid for the games, CTV reports. The city last hosted the Winter Olympics in 1988.

“We were all hoping for a yes vote tonight,” Mayor Naheed Nenshi said, according to CTV. “But ultimately, the people have spoken. They've spoken in big numbers, and the people have spoken clearly.”

While he may be disappointed, Nenshi said he will act according to his constituents' wishes.

“We saw a clear number, we saw a big voter turnout, and for me, that means that I ultimately take my direction from the citizens,” he said.

Earlier this year, cities in Japan, Austria and Switzerland also withdrew their bids.

Phil Ellsworth / ESPN(CINCINNATI) -- The third time might be the charm for former Cleveland Browns coach Hue Jackson. For the third time, Jackson is returning to Cincinnati, where he'll be special assistant to Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis, ESPN reports.

Lewis said Tuesday in a statement that he has "a great comfort level with Hue," and suggested Jackson could most assist him on game days, specifically with opponent analysis and defense. The Bengals have just fired defensive coordinator Teryl Austin after the team's recent 51-14 loss to the New Orleans Saints.

For his part, Jackson said he is "pleased" to be onboard with the Bengals, and "[looks] forward to doing my part to help it finish strong this season."

But some believe the Bengals' decision to acquire Jackson is no coincidence, with the Bengals and Browns scheduled to face off twice in the remainder of the season.  They'll play Nov. 25 in Cincinnati and on Dec. 23 in Cleveland.

ESPN highlights tweets by Browns cornerback Damarious Randall Tuesday.

In other words Hue we play the browns twice tell us what you know 😭😭😭...

— Damarious Randall (@RandallTime) November 13, 2018

"In other words Hue we play the [Browns] twice tell us what you know," Randall tweeted.

On Monday, Lewis responded to questions about his plans for defensive plays going forward, saying, "I've got a plan," according to ESPN. Regarding plans for Jackson to join the Bengals, Lewis simply replied, "Watch and see."

The Bengals have not revealed details about the length or terms of Jackson's contract.

Allen Kee / ESPN Images(HOUSTON) -- Carmelo Anthony's representatives are said to be exploring where the power forward may wind up next since his time with the Houston Rockets appears to be coming to an end.

League sources told ESPN Anthony's representatives gathered information on Monday from various NBA front offices.

The sources said, unless something changes, Houston is moving toward waiving the 10-time All-Star soon.

Anthony, 34, joined the Rockets this past summer. He played 10 games with Houston this season before the team moved off of him.

Anthony will not play in Tuesday night's game against the Denver Nuggets. This will mark the third straight game that he will remain away from the team due to what the Rockets say is an illness.

Phil Ellsworth / ESPN Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Los Angeles Angels' two-way star Shohei Ohtani was named the American League Rookie of the Year by the Baseball Writers' Association of America on Monday, snatching 25 of 30 first place votes.

New York Yankees third baseman Miguel Andujar earned the other five votes, finishing in second place.

Ohtani, 24, is the third Angels player to earn the award, joining Tim Salmon (1993) and Mike Trout (2012), and the fourth Japanese-born player to receive the title in the majors, following Hideo Nomo (1995), Kazuhiro Sasaki (2000) and Ichiro Suzuki (2001).

As a designated hitter in 82 games, Ohtani had a batting average of .285 in his rookie season, with 22 home runs, 61 RBI and 59 runs scored. He bested all rookies in the American League in on-base percentage (.361) and slugging percentage (.564).

Starting as a pitcher in 10 games, Ohtani went 4-2 with a 3.31 ERA and 63 strikeouts over 51.2 innings pitched.

Allen Berezovsky/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- NBA teams are honoring the victims of the nation's latest mass shooting, and the league commissioner Adam Silver is standing behind them.  Silver showed his support from the stands Sunday as the Los Angeles Lakers and Atlanta Hawks acknowledged the victims of the Thousand Oaks, Calif., shooting by wearing t-shirts that displayed the message "Enough," according to ESPN.

Silver told ESPN after Sunday's game -- the Lakers' first game since the Wednesday night shooting -- that "players aren't just ballplayers, they're citizens."

"They have strong feelings about what's happening in society and they react to them," he said. "I think this was something that was a groundswell within the league. It came from the players and it spread by word of mouth from one team to another."

Silver explained that the tributes began in California, but spread when other teams joined to show their support. The Lakers and the Hawks chose to don the "Enough" shirts after the players from the Clippers and Milwaukee Bucks first wore the shirts at their game Saturday, ESPN reports. The Clippers and the Bucks first wore the shirts after the Clippers noticed the Los Angeles Kings and Minnosota Wild wearing "Enough" decals at a hockey game Thursday.

The names of the 12 people killed in the shooting at the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks also appear on the shirt worn by the NBA players.

"Again, I support our players' desire to speak out on issues that are important to them and important to society," Silver told ESPN.

The Lakers beat the Hawks 107-106 on Sunday.
