There was a question about bringing Obama onto his staff when he finished in office, and Lue joked about holding practice on the outdoor basketball court that Obama had installed when took over in 2008. All of it was everything you’d expect from an NBA champion’s trip to the White House. Alex Wong/Getty Images News Then Lue receded, and Cavs GM David Griffin emerged for a few minutes of questions. And then, that was it. A note from the White House had promised LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, and Kevin Love were “likely to attend” the press briefing, but none of them came. So everyone else went home. If you thought yesterday would have been a good opportunity for LeBron James to make a statement about Donald Trump, I did, too. But maybe he didn’t know what to say. Or, more likely, the players didn’t want to stand in front of the White House and say anything that might put President Obama in an awkward position. Either way, for all the moments that felt normal and happened right on scheduleevery one-liner from Obama, the mannequin challenge with the first lady, the South Lawn selfiesthe abrupt and anti-climactic ending was an appropriate finish. It was a strange day at the White House, during an anxious week in America. Andrew Sharp/SI I got to the North Lawn at noon, and Donald Trump had arrived an hour earlier to meet with President Obama in the Oval Office. For everyone but a handful of basketball reporters and one basketball team, Thursday at the White House was about the mechanics of Trump taking power.

As has been argued in this space since Chris Neil concussed Brian Boyle in Game 4 of the first round of the 2012 playoffs on a similar hit, players amid a follow-through are vulnerable and defenseless. Then again, so are players cutting across the center of the ice with their heads down. So are players who admire passes a little bit too long. And through no fault of their own, so too are players who receive suicide passes from teammates with unseen opponents lurking. Though removing all of these hits from the game, and outlawing all blindside hits in the name of player safety in an era of enhanced education and awareness of the profound dangers of brain injuries, no doubt is prudent and likely is the next step in the 21st century evolution of the sport, no one should discount how materially this will continue to change the game until it is little but a pale third-generation facsimile of what came before. Never has there been even close to the array of talent, young and old, on display these days in the NHL. If the first month of this season (following three games of transcendence by Team North America in the World Cup) holds hope for the future, it is from the notion that maybe all these remarkably skilled youngsters arriving on the scene simply are too fast to be reined in by the leagues diabolical, systems-oriented coaches. But if there is something missing on the ice, it is the art form (to use the term loosely) of physical intimidation. For better or worse, it is gone forever. Better, for the protection of the athletes; worse, for the loss of the raw, primal emotion that historically accompanied the game. Conn Smythes If you cant beat em in the alley, you cant beat em on the ice dictum no longer is regarded as sage truth but rather perceived as prehistoric ignorance.
