LeBron James sends praise to Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid after big loss

Posted on by

The Cavaliers struggled Thursday against the 76ers, falling, 108-97, but LeBron James took the high road and made a classy move after the game sending praise to Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid.
Women's Mikael Granlund Premier White Reebok Jersey: NHL Minnesota Wild #64 Away
While the Cavaliers (36-25) should have been able to win against the 76ers (33-27), Philadelphia had a particularly strong night with six of its players reaching double-digits. Simmons put up 18 points with eight assists, while Embiid scored 17 with 14 rebounds.

Limited Jordan Jenkins Jersey Embiid also took to social media to send James a message writing, Trust the Process??? Always a great time playing against one of the best to ever play the game #summer2018goals, which only added more speculation to the rumors that have been going around about Philadelphia trying to land James.

Bell believes the Steelers understand his worth but he senses his negotiations are viewed through the prism of the running back market, in which Atlanta’s Devonta Freeman is the game’s highest paid at $8.25 million per year. Freeman has averaged 96.9 yards from scrimmage per game over the past three seasons.

Bell said the constraints of the running back market aren’t his doing and don’t encapsulate his profile as a player.

They are using it as me being compared Darren Sproles Authentic Jersey to another running back or my status or what Devonta Freeman has. I can’t control what he’s done on the field, Bell said. I only can control what I think I’m worth and what I’ve done on the field. That’s where the problem lies. ‘Freeman’s making this, we can’t give you this.’ … To me, that’s not fair. I didn’t sign Devonta’s deal. That’s the position I’m in. I want to make my own decision.

Westbrook was also asked about his developing relationship with his former teammate.
Mens Rodney Hudson Jersey
[We’re] communicating, and that’s about it, Westbrook said. All the other stuff is irrelevant. Just keeping it cool. Talking when we need to.

Thomas currently last in the NBA in defensive efficiency and is shooting 35 percent in the process. Windhorst believes only way to fix the team chemistry may be to trade the diminutive guard, even though he has not heard of anything concrete indicating that will happen.

I think if the Cavs want to salvage this season with the spirit of the team they have to seriously look at doing that, Windhorst said. But also, I can’t sit here and look you in the eye and tell you that Isaiah will not recover enough to be a great player again in two months, I mean, it’s a pretty big risk, but I’m going to tell you that if you watch the way the team plays, the spirit when LeBron is out there with Isaiah is absolutely palpable.

Wiggins signed a five-year extension before the season worth close to $150 million, but he has not taken the kind of developmental step this season many expected.

Posted on by

Without Butler on the floor, Wiggins is averaging almost five more points (22 per game) than when Butler is with him (17.1). But Wiggins’ defensive RPM of minus-1.39 still ranks 429th out of 493 NBA players. Butler, on the other hand, ranked as one of the top five players in his position in that category.

Towns, too, is being counted on for defensive improvement. The first-time All-Star has shown franchise-changing offensive ability and is on track to receive a Wiggins-like extension of his own, but his lack of intensity at times on defense has frustrated many within the Timberwolves organization. Butler has repeatedly exchanged words with the 22-year-old on the floor, trying to motivate him to become better defensively. If ever there were a time for the lessons to take hold, it would be now. Towns remains confident he can help carry his team without its All-Star swingman.

With Forte gone and Bilal Powell older (29) with his share of durability issues, the Jets need to reboot on the ground, and they likely will bring in multiple backs through both avenues.

No Wildcat for me, he said. This isn’t the Dolphins with Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams.

Jackson finished his college career with 9,043 passing yards and 69 touchdown passes, but it is his ability to run as a quarterback that truly makes him special.

Limited Womens Virgil Green Jersey The 6-2 signal-caller ran for 4,132 yards and Authentic Dion Phaneuf Jersey 50 touchdowns in his career with the Cardinals.

The 6-5 Toth reported to the Combine at 290 pounds, which is 15 pounds below his college playing weight, because being lighter will make the military testing easier. Toth did not participate in any of the Combine drills for offensive linemen Friday but will have a workout for NFL scouts before April’s draft.

Limited Womens Benoit Pouliot Jersey Toth said he prepared as best he could for the Combine at Parisi Speed School in Fair Lawn, N.J., while keeping in mind his football training could only go so far.

I can see the transfer over between the agility (drills), the sprints and quick-twitch drills, he said. But what’s actually difficult are the explosive drills and strength drills because that doesn’t really carry over as much (to military testing).

Saquon Barkley: Want to be part of ‘something bigger than yourself’

Posted on by

Saquon Barkley ran headlong, without any hesitation, into the NFL scouting combine Thursday.
Nike Carolina Panthers #1 Cam Newton Name & Number NFL T-Shirt - Black
The Penn State running back, who some NFL talent evaluators believe is the top-rated prospect in this year’s draft, said he has no cause for concern if any of the NFL’s have-nots at the top of the draft board, including the winless Cleveland Browns, select him in April.

But any team, in my mind, that would pick me would be a good fit,” Barkley said. … I’m just going to keep my head low and Doug Martin Womens Jersey be ready to work.

After meeting with reporters, Barkley posted 29 reps on the bench press.

Barkley rushed for at least 1,076 yards in all three of his seasons at Penn State, including 1,496 yards in 2016 and 1,271 yards last season. He also caught 54 passes in 2017 and closed out his career with back-to-back seasons with 18 rushing touchdowns.
Bart Starr Authentic Jersey
If they were to pick a quarterback, Tannehill would embrace the competition, according to Gase.

Ryan would never shy away from anybody coming in at that position, the coach said.

Gase was less forthcoming on the future of wide receiver Jarvis Landry, who received the franchise tag. Gase said the tag was the best thing for us and for him to know that’s there.

The Dolphins reportedly are interested in trading Landry, who made more receptions in his first four seasons (400) than any player in NFL history. If they don’t trade him, they could sign him to a long-term contract or sign him for the franchise tender — an estimated $16 million — in 2018.

Tannehill is trying to rebound from two major knee injuries. The latter occurred in August during a training camp practice, requiring reconstructive surgery. Jay Cutler signed a one-year contract to replace him.

Miller stops 41 shots, Ducks beat Stars 2-0

Posted on by

The Ducks entered the game tied with the Los Angeles Kings for third place in the Pacific Division, and the Stars are in third in the Central Division. Not surprisingly, there was playoff intensity and caginess at the start. The Ducks went into the power play where Lindholm scored with two shots on goal and got two in eight seconds with the man-advantage, their only four shots in the period.

We played so well the last two nights, we needed to get rewarded, Hitchcock said. As well as we played tonight, we probably played better (Wednesday) night.

At this time of the year, with so many teams involved in the West in the playoff race, every shift matters, every period matters, every game matters.

Tobias Rieder, making his first appearance with the Kings after arriving from Arizona in a trade Wednesday, played on Los Angeles’ third line. . After three power plays in the first period, there were none in the final two periods. . Lehtonen said it felt like a playoff game: It’s going to be like this the next 20 games. It’s exciting for the players and the fans.

According to left winger Johnny Gaudreau, who had a goal and two assists against the Coyotes, the Flames are looking at every game as a must-win situation.

There’s a tiny difference between punts muffed from left-footed punters vs. right-footed punters, but it will probably be negated by the fact that neither team is facing anything new.

But when Belichick finally walks away from the NFL, the rise of left-footed punters appears to be another way his legacy has impacted the game — whether he calls it a coincidence or not.

Anthony Davis vigorously punched his arm through the air as the final horn provided a fourth straight triumphant ending to a fourth straight prolific performance. The All-Star then faced the exuberant New Orleans crowd with both arms raised and began exchanging high fives with beckoning fans along the edge of the court.

We just got outbattled in areas, Calgary coach Glen Gulutzan said. We didn’t create as much offense, and in a game like this on the road you’ve got have a little bit more. We’ve a got a few guys that were cruising, and it’s not a time to cruise, it’s a time to push.

Before the puck drops on this important Eastern Conference clash, the Devils (31-22-8) will honor the franchise’s all-time leading scorer, and two-time Stanley Cup champion, Patrik Elias, retiring his No. 26 sweater.

Once the game begins, however, all eyes will be on No. 40 in the home red jersey as Michael Grabner makes his debut for the Devils after being acquired in a pre-deadline trade with the New York Rangers — a first between the two teams — on Thursday.

Regarding the former subplot, Devils coach John Hynes had this to say of Elias: He’s such a strong symbol of the past, of where this organization has been. He epitomizes what a Devil is. He’s a highly talented player, but he’s driven, he’s competitive, he’s loyal, he’s got high character.

Releasing Cushing, who was suspended 10 games last season for his second violation of the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances, will save the Texans $7.6 million against the salary Womens Paul Konerko Jersey cap.

Brian Cushing has meant a great deal to the McNair family and few players have meant more to the Texans franchise over the course of the last nine seasons, Texans chief operating officer Cal McNair said in a statement. His work ethic, toughness and leadership, not only as a member of the team, but in the Houston community, is to be commended, especially his dedication to the military and their families. Brian will always be part of the Texans family.

Womens Corey Dickerson Jersey Former Eagles and Broncos safety Brian Dawkins had plenty of big moments during his playing career. This weekend has to be even bigger. Voters selected Dawkins as a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Class of 2018, the Hall of Fame announced Saturday.

The Eagles drafted Dawkins out of Clemson in the second round of the 1996 draft. He spent 13 seasons setting the tone for Philly’s defense. He finished his career with the Broncos.

Sebastian Janikowski’s 18-year tenure with Raiders over

Posted on by

After missing all of last season with a back injury, Sebastian Janikowski’s Nino Niederreiter Jersey time with the Raiders is officially over.
Women's Al MacInnis Premier Red Adidas Jersey: NHL Calgary Flames #2 Home
The Raiders informed the veteran kicker they will not be retaining him for the 2018 season, ESPN first reported Wednesday.

Raiders informed kicker Sebastian Janikowski today that they do not plan to bring him back for the 2018 season, per source. An 18-year run with Raiders comes to an end.

The former Florida State kicker and Polish native kicked a 57-yard game-winner in 2008 to beat the Jets in overtime for the longest overtime kick in history. His 55 career field goals from beyond 50 yards are also an NFL record.
Elite Mens Tony Jefferson Jersey
Janikowski’s 1,799 career points and 414 field goals for the Raiders rank 10th in NFL history.

Should the Cowboys use the franchise tag on Lawrence by March 6, when the window closes, the team and player still would have until July 16 to agree to a long-term contract. That would be to Dallas’ benefit since a long-term deal would significantly lower Lawrence’s salary cap number.

Under the franchise tag, Lawrence would make about $17.5 million, all of which would count against the team’s salary cap next season. The Cowboys have about $20 million in cap space for 2018.
Mens Mikkel Boedker Jersey
Cowboys will not place franchise tag on DeMarcus Lawrence tomorrow as that window opens but will do so by March 6 w/ understanding the goal is to reach a long-term deal. Both sides have until July 16 to make that happen.

Our first goal is to sign him to a long-term deal, Cowboys executive VP Stephen Jones said at the Senior Bowl last month. To me, the only reason you use a franchise tag is to hopefully protect yourself if you can’t get a long-term deal signed that you like. That’s normally the route we like to go. Certainly we’re going to roll up our sleeves and see if we can do something with DeMarcus without having a franchise tag.

Michigan State extends Mark Dantonio’s contract amid NCAA investigation

Posted on by

Kevin Labanc Jersey
Michigan State’s board of trustees authorized an Authentic Randy Johnson Jersey annual contract extension for head football coach Mark Dantonio at a meeting on Friday.
Ken Crawley Jersey Nike Men's Aaron Donald Elite Navy Blue Home Jersey - Los Angeles Rams NFL #99
Dantonio’s contract with the university says the term of his deal extends by one year, every year, unless the school gives Dantonio written notice by mid-January that it won’t make that extension. If the school decided not to extend Dantonio’s contract by a year, he’d have the option to resign and take an $875,000 payout.

At base, Dantonio’s agreement with the school is for six years. This extension puts him under contract with the Spartans through the 2023 season.

In 2017, a commissioned law firm found Dantonio correctly handled allegations against three players, who were later charged and booted from the program.

The school’s athletic director, Mark Hollis, announced his retirement hours before Dantonio spoke. Days before that, university president Lou Anna Simon stepped down. Michigan State still hasn’t hired permanent replacements for either Simon or Hollis.

Dantonio, 61, is slated to coach his 12th season at MSU this fall.

After the short program, Chen was disappointed but ready to put it behind him: [It] just was rough, Chen said, via USA Figure Skating. I did all the right stuff going into it; it should have been different, but stuff happens. Take it for what it is and move on.

Friday he did just that and reminded everyone why he’s so exciting by landing a record five quads during his free skate, and then adding a sixth for good measure.

The 18-year-old earned a stunning 127.64 points in the technical portion of scoring and a mind-boggling 215.08 for the program. That score was the fifth highest in history and gave him 297.35 total. To put it in a little more perspective, the winning score in the 2014 Sochi Olympics was 280.09, put forth by Japan’s Yuzuru Hanyu.

That’s probably not a high enough score to win gold in Pyeongchang, but it’s got Chen back in medal contention and gave everyone something to get excited about.

Ryan Shazier is setting the record straight.

Posted on by

The Steelers linebacker took to Twitter on Monday to clarify the status of his rehabilitation after a report Sunday stated he had “regained movement in his legs” and “begun a regular walking routine.”

Wentz is a special talent, no doubt. But at the moment, he’s dealing with the base concerns about long-term durability, the first hurdle to a consistent, successful QB career in the NFL. Foles, meanwhile, has the unmistakable glean of the Lombardi Trophy in his hands.

Foles also has the advantage of being drafted when Pederson was the Eagles’ quarterbacks coach in 2012; and of being coveted as a backup with the Chiefs because of his old connection to Pederson; and being traded to rejoin Pederson.

Sure, Pederson was in charge when the Eagles drafted Wentz, but the coach has had more time to see Foles’ evolution and knows exactly what he has in him now. It’s not about comparing what Wentz did earlier in the season and what Foles did late in the season.

It wouldn’t shock me to see the Giants work out a trade to move up one spot, especially if we start to hear reports of the Browns leaning toward the UCLA QB despite his disinterest in playing in Cleveland. The period of time between the combine and the start of free agency is going to be fascinating for this team; imagine if the Giants move up to No. 1 and also trade Eli Manning to a team like the Jaguars during the first week of March.

Structure is everything with NFL contracts, since the deals aren’t fully guaranteed. Any Redskins offer with less than $40 million fully guaranteed at signing won’t be taken seriously by Cousins’ camp. The five-year, $75 million contract the Redskins gave free-agent cornerback Josh Norman last April with a player-friendly structure had $36.5 million fully guaranteed at signing.

Allen indicated that the Redskins are committed to getting Cousins signed before the July 15 deadline that franchise players have for long-term deals. It’s probably going to take a contract in the same ballpark as the five-year extension Andrew Luck received from the Colts last offseason, which reset the NFL pay scale, to lock up Cousins long-term. Luck’s contract averages $24.594 million per year and contains $87 million in guarantees, of which $47 million was fully guaranteed at signing.

This is especially true for defensive pass interference, a penalty that can have huge consequences, but is often quite subjective. Already in 2017, there have been more pass interference calls than in all of the 2009 season.

The NFL is praying for a ratings turnaround

As the NFL kicks off Week 3 with Thursday Night Football, team owners, TV networks and Madison Avenue are hoping it can turn around an early-season ratings dip.

Kapernick can wear ‘pig socks’ and not even garner a response from the NFL, but this guy wants to honor those who tragically died on 9-11 and he’s threatened, he noted.

Williamson plans to auction the cleats for charity.

The quarterbacks are always the key in big games, and it’s usually the elite Pro Bowl QBs playing in these title games, such as last year, with Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger, Matt Ryan and Aaron Rodgers. It’s no surprise that Brady is back. But who would have predicted that Nick Foles, Case Keenum and Blake Bortles would be the other three QBs still standing?

Despite the fact they’ve lost left tackle Jason Peters to a knee injury, the Eagles will almost certainly offer Ajayi more running room, if only because Carson Wentz is playing so well. I don’t believe LeGarrette Blount disappears from Philly’s game plans, but neither do I believe that someone of Blount’s frustrating running style 锟斤拷 he’s a giant human with great power who regularly turns his shoulders and tries to outrun defenders 锟斤拷 will result in Ajayi playing a supporting role. Maybe as soon as this week, Ajayi will be The Guy.
