LeBron James said he didn't see Cam Newton's postgame press conference after Super Bowl 50, but shared what it's been like for him to talk to the media after an NBA Finals loss: "I know it's very difficult to play in one of the biggest games of your life and come out on the wrong side of it and then have to automatically answer questions. And we also know as professionals that's part of the business. We also know that you guys are part of the reason that help (make) the game as great as it is, so you got to, as difficult as it is to answer some of the questions that you know this is the last thing you want to talk about, you have to go up there and take the onus, and take the good with the bad. Like I said I didn't see the Cam interview, but I can only imagine what happened. But I've been in that situation before on both sides, so, it's difficult."

Getting to the Super Bowl is a hard enough task, but returning to the big game a year after losing? That is truly a rare feat. Only the '70 Cowboys and '71 Dolphins came back and hoisted the Lombardi Trophy a year after confetti fell on their opponent.

KC Joyner ESPN Insider 

Two interesting items from the ESPN Stats & Information review of Super Bowl 50. Cam Newton was 5 for 20 for 147 yards (7.4 YPA), zero touchdowns and one interception on vertical passes (aerials thrown 11 or more yards downfield). He had a Total QBR of 17 on those throws, which is really bad considering 50 is the average in that metric. The odd part is Newton was exceptional on stretch vertical passes (aerials thrown 20 or more yards downfield). He went 3 for 5 for 86 yards (17.2 YPA) and a 99 Total QBR. Add it up and it turns out Carolina might have been better suited to let Newton be even more aggressive on downfield throws.

One of these won a second Super Bowl and the other probably will win a couple some day. Super Bowl 50 is in the books.
