This is how LeBron James and the Cavs (and Lady Gaga) stay in shape
"James, 32, is defying the odds in extending his prime -- once considered a three- to four-year window for a player -- well into a decade of dominance even as his odometer will hit 50,000 career minutes played during the first quarter of Wednesday's Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals in Boston. James did not get to this point without carefully managing his body. He was introduced to the VersaClimber in his third season in the league by a former Cavs strength coach and has included it in his workout routine ever since. 'We've been doing it for a long, long time,' says Mike Mancias, James' personal trainer. 'And the reason we do it is to conserve. No pounding on the joints. No wear on his back, his knees, his ankles, all that, his hips. It's just all non-weight-bearing cardio. It was a godsend, really.'"

At a Besieged White House, Tempers Flare and Confusion Swirls
"In private, three administration officials conceded that they could not publicly articulate their most compelling — and honest — defense of the president for divulging classified intelligence to the Russians: that Mr. Trump, a hasty and indifferent reader of his briefing materials, simply did not possess the interest or the knowledge of the granular details of intelligence gathering to leak specific sources and methods of intelligence gathering that would harm American allies."

Comey Memo Says Trump Asked Him to End Flynn Investigation
"Mr. Comey wrote the memo detailing his conversation with the president immediately after the meeting, which took place the day after Mr. Flynn resigned, according to two people who read the memo. It was part of a paper trail Mr. Comey created documenting what he perceived as the president’s improper efforts to influence a continuing investigation. An F.B.I. agent’s contemporaneous notes are widely held up in court as credible evidence of conversations."
