‘Superteams’ rise to challenge Warriors for crown

first_imgThe superteams will be tested on opening night with Boston visiting Cleveland and Houston at Golden State. Oklahoma City will open Thursday at home against New York, Anthony’s former club.’James says that despite potential issues with 2011 MVP Rose, 2006 MVP Wade, himself, Love, Crowder and teammates relegated to reserve duties, the Cavaliers will come together and again be a championship threat.“At the end of the day when guys sign here and wanted to come here, we all know what we’re here for,” James said. “So there’s no ego. The only ego is bring your game, which these guys know how to do. We all have a common goal, so none of that other stuff matters.” View comments “Just because you compile a team of superstars don’t mean it’s going to work, because it’s a lot of ego,” Green told GQ magazine.”And we just happen to have a perfect group to where it works.”Las Vegas oddsmakers agree. The Warriors are a runaway favorite to repeat as champion at about 2-1 with Cleveland next at 4-1 ahead of Boston at 10-1 with Houston and San Antonio at 15-1 just ahead of Oklahoma City at 16-1. ‘They don’t stand a chance’ It’s the NBA version of a nuclear arms race, complete with a fistful of teams stockpiling top talent and legend Michael Jordan, a six-time NBA champion with Chicago who owns the Charlotte Hornets, warning of mutually assured destruction.ADVERTISEMENT “I think it’s going to hurt the overall aspect of the league from a competitive standpoint,” Jordan told Cigar Aficionado magazine.“You’re going to have one or two teams that are going to be great, and another 28 teams that are going to be garbage. Or they’re going to have a tough time surviving in the business environment.”In the wake of a heartbreaking seventh-game loss to Cleveland in the 2016 NBA Finals after a record 73-9 season, the Warriors recruited Durant, the former MVP who opted out of Oklahoma City. They rolled through the playoffs with a 16-1 record.It’s a follow-on to the escalation James helped spark in 2010 when he left Cleveland for Miami to join Wade and Chris Bosh in a “Big Three” that reached four NBA Finals in a row, winning in 2012 and 2013.When he returned to the Cavaliers in 2014, he matched up with Irving and added Kevin Love for a new “Big Three” and now such trios abound.“It’s pretty… sick to see how everybody is just in a … panic about what to do,” Green told GQ. “That’s the fun part about it — they know they don’t stand a chance.”Green said the Warriors were inspired by Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey’s comments after last June’s NBA Finals, when he said the Warriors “are not unbeatable. There have been bigger upsets in sports history. We are going to keep improving our roster. We’re used to long odds. If Golden State makes the odds longer, we might up our risk profile and get even more aggressive. We have something up our sleeves.”That proved to be pairing Paul and Harden, two of the NBA’s best, in the Houston backcourt.“They are really trying to rethink their whole strategy,” Green told GQ. ‘Only ego is bring your game’  Nonong Araneta re-elected as PFF president Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Why Melanie Jolys Creative Canada is good news for Canadian screenwriters and

first_imgREAD MORE LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment WHEN HERITAGE MINISTER Mélanie Joly delivered her Creative Canada vision statement last Thursday in Ottawa I was extremely pleased on behalf of Canadian screenwriters — at last, a vision for Canada that puts creators at the centre.While “creator” can mean many things, when it comes to screen-based entertainment, it means the showrunners and screenwriters that the Writers Guild of Canada represents. However, I wasn’t only pleased for WGC members because I also felt genuine hope — for the first time in a long time (remember the long, Canadian-arts-and-culture-dry years of the Harper government?) — for Canada. The direction of Creative Canada clearly is designed to give Canadian audio-visual entertainment (a form of entertainment that’s arguably the most popular cultural force of our day) a far better chance of being seen around the world than it has had in a very long time.Of course, the news that Netflix is putting in $500 million over five years into Canadian programming and opening a Canadian production office has been the focus of most of the media coverage and of the attention of industry colleagues. There’s more to the announcement than that, but let’s start with a closer look at that $500 million. That’s one hundred million dollars a year. That’s roughly the average spending by each of Bell Media and Corus Entertainment, respectively, on programmes of national interest (PNI), things like drama, comedy, documentary and some children’s programming, per year, over the past few years. That’s right, Netflix is kicking in as much money per year as each of these two Canadian broadcasters, who have benefited from corporate protections and received subsidies, and yet not produced a significant volume of original Canadian programming.

No electoral alliance with Cong in any state Mayawati

first_imgNew Delhi: In a setback to the prospects of an opposition grand alliance to take on the ruling BJP in the Lok Sabha election, the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) made it clear on Tuesday that it would not have any electoral tie-up with the Congress in any state for the polls beginning April 11. In a statement, BSP supremo Mayawati said, “It is being made clear again that the Bahujan Samaj Party will not have any electoral alliance with the Congress in any state.” Also Read – Squadrons which participated in Balakot air strike awarded citations on IAF Day Referring to her party’s pre-poll alliance with the Samajwadi Party (SP) in Uttar Pradesh, she said it was based on “mutual respect” and “honest intentions”, adding that “the SP-BSP alliance is perfect enough to defeat the BJP, especially in Uttar Pradesh”. Addressing party leaders from various states, excluding Uttar Pradesh, here, Mayawati said while several parties were “eager” for an alliance with the BSP, her party would not do anything for mere electoral gains as it could “harm the BSP movement”. Also Read – SC declines Oil Min request to stay sharing of documents on Reliance penalty The election will pit the Bharatiya Janata Party-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) against a combination of opposition parties, including the Congress, the Left and several regional forces, with the latter still trying to stitch up a grand alliance to minimise the division of votes against the ruling combine. The BJP has worked out a seat-sharing formula with its new allies and old partners — by even making concessions to them in states like Bihar — while the opposition parties are yet to arrive at a deal in several states, While the saffron alliance under Prime Minister Narendra Modi hopes to make history by coming back to power for a second full term, the Opposition is hopeful of unseating the government by raising questions on its performance on a host of issues, including economic growth, employment, corruption and social harmony. After suffering losses in three state Assembly polls recently, the BJP believes that its Lok Sabha poll campaign is back on the track due to a number of decisions, including the 10-per cent quota for the general category poor, money transfer to farmers and presentation of a populist budget.last_img read more

Ohio State womens volleyball captures Maryland Invitational title moves to 51

They may be nothing quite like sweeping a mid-season tournament to keep momentum rolling for the Ohio State women’s volleyball team.OSU (5-1) took the Maryland Invitational tournament by storm, defeating both Binghamton and Seton Hall, 3-0, before clinching a tournament sweep in come-from-behind fashion by defeating Maryland, 3-2, on Saturday. While the Buckeyes swept their first two matches over the weekend, they struggled early in its third match against Maryland. The Terrapins took the first two sets, but the Buckeyes fought back and eventually won.“After the (first) game, everyone was just kind of frustrated, but we wanted to stay optimistic and be fired up,” senior outside hitter Emily Danks said. “We realized that we are in this for the long haul and that this game wasn’t over. We weren’t going to go down without a fight.”OSU coach Geoff Carlston said he understood that trailing on the road isn’t an easy obstacle to overcome. So, when his team refocused its energy in the last three sets, he said he was very proud of the way it handled adversity.“It takes a lot of energy and a lot of concentration to come back down 0-2 on the road,” Carlston said. “It’s not easy to do. I’m very, very happy for our team that we were able to come back.”Danks, senior outside hitter Mari Hole and junior defensive specialist Davionna DiSalvatore were named to the all-tournament team, with Danks being named the tournament’s Most Valuable Player.“Emily was a stud tonight, an absolute stud,” Carlston said. “Mari also played very well for us tonight. They are our senior leaders. They are the ones who we look to, who the team looks to and they’re vital. If they don’t play or keep their head up, there is no way we come back and win tonight.”Danks and Hole said they were honored by their awards, but gave most of the credit to their teammates.“Oh yeah, it was a huge honor, there were a lot of talented players at this tournament,” Danks said. “I’m so proud of this team, I can’t even tell you. I look around at every player and I wouldn’t pick anyone else to be on my team in terms of talent, leadership and work ethic.”Hole agreed.“It’s always an honor to be recognized,” Hole said. “This is a confidence booster to our team because three of us got recognized, and without our teammates, we wouldn’t have gotten this honor.”Danks had 24 kills to lead all attackers against Maryland, which is a career-best, and contributed three blocks and eight digs. Hole had 13 kills and 13 digs, as she recorded her first double-double of the season.Next weekend, the Buckeyes will compete in the Western Kentucky Tournament, where they will face in-state rival and No. 10 Dayton, along with games against IUPUI and host Western Kentucky.Hole said the team’s 5-1 start gives it confidence for its upcoming tournament and the rest of the season.“We all know that Coach scheduled a tough season because we are such a strong team,” Hole said. “So coming up with such a great start and getting this fifth win is such a confidence booster.”Danks also credited the team’s success because of the Buckeyes’ bench, which consists of sophomore middle blocker Anna Faul and freshman outside hitter Katie Mitchell.“We had great help off the bench, and they set the world on fire when they came into the game,” Danks said. “It just kind of shows how good our team is with so much depth at every position.” read more

JT Barrett off to recordsetting start for Ohio State

Redshirt-freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett waits for the snap during a game against Cincinnati on Sept. 27 at Ohio Stadium. OSU won, 50-28, behind 409 yards of total offense from Barrett.Credit: Mark Batke / Photo editorWhen senior quarterback Braxton Miller went down with an injury during fall camp, the Ohio State football team turned to a redshirt-freshman who hadn’t taken a meaningful snap since high school.While there have been bumps in the road, that young quarterback — J.T. Barrett — has already accomplished things Miller never did for the Scarlet and Gray. Miller’s name could nearly fill its own record book, but Barrett ranks ahead of the veteran on multiple fronts just four games into his career.OSU coach Urban Meyer left some credit for the coaching staff when it comes to Barrett’s quick improvement, but also praised the signal caller’s ability to learn.“I think (I’m) not surprised by his development,” Meyer said after OSU’s 50-28 win against Cincinnati on Saturday. “I think (co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Tom Herman) is an excellent coach and he’s a very good student.”Barrett tied the school record for touchdown passes in a game when he threw six against Kent State — and had more than 300 yards in the air — before adding to his accomplishments with another record-setting night against Cincinnati. The Wichita Falls, Texas, native threw for 330 yards and four touchdowns and added 79 yards on the ground.That makes two consecutive games Barrett has thrown for more than 300 yards — something Miller hasn’t done in three seasons. Barrett’s 409 yards of total offense rank as the second-best in school history behind Art Schlichter’s 412 yards gained against Florida State in 1981. He also led the OSU offense to a school-record 45 first downs and the third best total output in OSU history of 710 yards.After his record-setting night, Barrett saved more of the praise for his offensive line, which gave him time in the pocket to complete 26 passes out of 36 attempts.“All the credit goes to the offensive line,” he said after the game. “They got it started for us and that’s what coach Meyer always talks about in relying on them to keep the offensive going.”Barrett said he still has a room for improvement, but recognized the strides he has made since first taking the field against Navy on Aug. 30.“I think coming into Navy I was trying to make sure everything was right,” he said after the Cincinnati game. “Knowing I make mistakes and then just learning from them throughout the game.”He went on to say he’s more worried about trusting his instincts instead of worrying about making mistakes, something Herman said he wanted the quarterback to focus on in practice before taking on the Bearcats.“Trusting what you see and pulling the trigger, it’s better to be early than to be late,” Herman said after the game. “I thought he did — just from my vantage point — better, (but) still could probably get better at that.”Barrett set personal career-highs for passing attempts, pass completions and passing yards in the game, and did it all without throwing an interception for the first time in his career.Regardless of those numbers, Herman said Barrett can improve on making quicker decisions, but added he saw a “vast improvement” in another part of the quarterback’s game.Herman said given Barrett’s 6-foot-1 frame, the signal-caller needs to hang back in the pocket more in order to be able to see over the line and make the correct decisions.“So we really worked on keeping him a little bit deeper in the pocket on some of our drop-back throws and I thought he did that tonight,” Herman said.Despite his big day, Barrett said he recognized the spots where he needs to improve, and added he is ready to get back to work to keep getting better.“There’s certain things that you know you need to execute on during the game and so you think about those more than the big plays,” he said. “Definitely going in (to practice Sunday) trying to correct the mistakes we made.”Through four games, Barrett has completed 70 passes out of 110 attempts for 1,087 yards and 13 touchdowns. He’s thrown five interceptions — three of which came against Virginia Tech on Sept. 6 — and gained another 205 yards on the ground with one additional touchdown.After a bye week before the Cincinnati game, the Buckeyes are set for a typical game week before taking the field again. OSU is scheduled to play Maryland next Saturday in College Park, Md., and kickoff is set for noon. read more

FA to crackdown on Premier League managers

first_imgThe English Football Association has announced that Premier League managers will get verbal warnings, according to Evening Standard.Managers who behave badly on the touchline will be shown yellow and red cards, the FA has revealed.The “pilot project” which builds on the existing rules of conducts in the technical area will apply to majority of football competitions in England including the Premier League, EFL, National League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup and Checkatrade Trophy.These warnings will also apply for managers as they do for players, any manager who receives four warnings will receive an automatic one-game touchline ban.However, in the Premier League, managers will not be shown cards but will be cautioned verbally.Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…But unlike the accumulated cautions for players, there’ll be no reset for managers, so if a manager picks up four warnings, he gets a one-game ban, eight warnings gets him a two-game ban, 12 warnings gets him a three-game ban and so on.The only exception to the rules will be playoff games in the EFL and National League as well as the FA Cup final.The FA have revealed that warnings will be given out for inappropriate language or gestures such as show of dissent, kicking of plastics or water bottles, waving imaginary cards, attempts to influence the referee’s decision and so on.EFL chief executive Shaun Harvey told reporters that the rules haven’t are not new but the idea is to make the disciplinary process clearer.“The whole process is not about creating drama but making sure we improve the behavior of people in the game.” He said.last_img read more

Weah New PSG coach can make me a better player

first_imgTimothy Weah believes that coach Thomas Tuchel can push him to new heights this season at Paris Saint-GermainThe 18-year-old son of the legendary George Weah has been at the Parc Des Princes for the past year.Although with a star roster containing the likes of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, Edinson Cavani and Angel Di Maria, opportunities have been hard to come by for Weah.The United States international had the option to go out on loan this season, but opted to remain at PSG under new coach Tuchel.Weah hopes that the German will have a similar impact on him to what he had on fellow teenage American forward Christian Pulisic.After Tuchel handed Pulisic his Borussia Dortmund debut in 2016, the 19-year-old has since become regarded as one of the best prospects in world football.“Watching Dortmund, seeing Christian play so many games at his age, really made me believe in his coaching tactics and techniques,” Weah said on Sportskeeda.“He’s really pushing us young guys to make our mark and get out there and do our thing, and that’s what makes him happy the most.“And I love him as a coach and I love him as a person. He’s just really pushed me to be a better player, and I can’t wait to see where the season takes us.”Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R.

I’m only 18 — I’m still 18 and I have a long way to go, and right now is just me being an apprentice,” he said.“Maybe next year, who knows, I’ll take my talents on loan somewhere else and see what that really does for me, but right now I’m content with what I have and I’m content at PSG.”And George Weah endorses this mindset.“He tells me, ‘Just wait your turn,’” Tim Weah said.“You’re playing with stars.
