Carmelo Anthony ripped Knicks in expletive-filled rant last month, per report

Carmelo Anthony kept a calm presence with the media when trade talks were swirling around him, but he didn’t #StayMe7o during a game against the Nets in March.

A report by ESPN’s Ian Begley claims the All-Star forward became upset during halftime of the game. Coach Jeff Hornacek was the first to talk, and that’s when Melo chimed in. Coaches getting upset at players after a poor performance is typical, but getting a response is a little unusual.

I have a lot of respect for him, and he’s supposed to say that. Anyone that’s your competitor is going to think that they’re better, Fultz told Sports Illustrated. To me, it Cheap European Soccer Jerseys was just funny, he just motivated me to work harder and be sure I put myself further and further in front.

Fultz said being drafted No. 1 overall would be a dream come true, but Cheap Embroidered NFL Jerseys he has even higher aspirations for his first professional season.

No. 1 is big for me because I’ve been dreaming about it all my life. I want to come in and kill it, he said. I want to be rookie of the year … honestly, me? I want to be MVP next year.

As freshmen, Fultz averaged 23.2 points, 5.7 rebounds and 5.9 assists, while Ball averaged 14.6 points, 6.0 rebounds and 7.6 assists for UCLA.

Watch the Cavs kill their VersaClimber workout

LeBron James’ love for the VersaClimber has been well documented, as he’s been using the cardio machine for years.

The gift (and sometimes the curse) of Mike D’Antoni’s offense is its simplicity. They have at least three shooters surrounding James Harden at all times, as well as one of the best rollers in the NBA when they play Clint Capela at center. Because Harden can break down just about any defender in the league one-on-one, it forces defenses to make the tough decision between leaving a shooter open Cheap Eagles Jerseys by throwing an additional defender at him or allowing him to score by staying home on their assignments.

The Spurs have tried a number of things to slow Harden and the Rockets down in this series. The Rockets got off to a blistering start in Game 1, setting a franchise record in the playoffs with 22 made 3-pointers. Not only did they neutralize Kawhi Leonard by stationing whoever he was guarding in the corner, they attacked LaMarcus Aldridge, David Lee and Pau Gasol by having them defend Harden and a shooter — usually either Trevor Ariza or Ryan Anderson — in pick-and-pops. When the big showed or hedged, Ariza or Anderson slipped to the perimeter.

Turning point: Cleveland closed the fourth quarter strong and took all of the air out of Bankers Life Fieldhouse, but it was the effort in the third quarter that really got the Cavs going. They went on a 10-0 run late in the third, cutting the Indiana lead to 10 and preventing the Pacers from scoring for more than three consecutive minutes. Certainly the Pacers inexplicably turning away from the Cheap Elite Nike NFL Jerseys ball movement that was so successful in the first half helped the Cavs crawl back possession by possession. But give credit to LeBron and Co. for getting stops and converting on the other end.

28 pts, 6 rebs, 7 asts, 0 to. No Cav outside of LeBron has ever done that in a playoff game. LeBron just did that in the second HALF.

Larry Bird calling it quits as president of Pacers, report says

Larry Bird is stepping down from his role as the Indiana Pacers’ president of basketball operations, The Vertical reports.

Kevin Pritchard, currently the team’s GM and executive vice president of basketball operations, is expected to take over duties previously held by Bird.

While Bird is expected to continue working with the Pacers as a consultant, other NBA franchises may come knocking on his door. Per The Vertical, the search firm helping the Magic fill their top basketball executive role is making inquiries into Bird’s availability. While Cavaliers GM David Griffin remains the Magic’s first choice, Orlando has yet to ask Cleveland to interview him since the Cavs are still in the playoffs. Orlando fired GM Rob Hennigan earlier this month.

Chyna Thomas was killed in a one-car crash near Tacoma on April 15. Her older brother previously flew cross-country after Game 2 to spend two days with his family, and the Celtics have told him repeatedly to take as much time as he needs at home.

But Thomas feels he has a responsibility to his team, as well, so he’ll continue doing everything he can to be present on both fronts.

The support has been amazing, Thomas’ friend Alonzo Weatherby Cheap Dolphins Jerseys told the Globe. It’s meant the world for Brad (Stevens) to tell Isaiah he has as much time as he wants. Basically, don’t come back until you’re ready to. This is family before anything, and that means the world.

Despite the personal turmoil, Thomas is averaging 25.2 points, 5.6 Cheap Dream Team Jerseys assists and 4.2 rebounds through the first five games of the series.

Rockets owner Les Alexander argues with referee during Game 5 vs. Thunder

The Wizards were streaky to end the regular season, putting together a couple of four-plus-game winning streaks, but also losing five of their last eight games. Chemistry is always a question with this squad. John Wall and Bradley Beal — the team’s two best players and backcourt mates — don’t seem to like each other all that much.

Regardless, Washington has the explosive talent to cause trouble in the East this season. Shooters Otto Porter Jr. and Bojan Bogdanovic could be the Wizards’ difference makers in this series.

The Hawks won four out of their last five regular-season Cheap Dan Marino Jerseys games. They picked up two wins against the Cavs and one win against the Celtics during that stretch. Dennis Schroder will make or break this balanced team. He averaged 17.9 points, but also turned the ball over 3.3 times per game.

Rockets owner Leslie Alexander was really fired up watching his Houston team play at home against the Thunder in the NBA playoffs Tuesday.

With the Rockets one win from clinching a second-round berth (Houston went on to win 105-99), Alexander went on the court to argue with referee Bill Kennedy during play at the end of the first quarter.

Alexander told the Houston Chronicle at halftime he was really upset Cheap Discount Jerseys when he confronted Kennedy. He declined to elaborate on what was said.

One thing we do know: Alexander is really passionate about his team.

Warriors’ Kevin Durant returns for Game 4 vs. Trail Blazers

It’s hard to get an accurate representation of what the Cavs will look like in the playoffs this year due to their propensity to rest starters on a semi-regular basis. The Big Three of LeBron James, Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving are all healthy and ready to lead this team back to Cheap Custom Baseball Jerseys another Finals, but they need to rediscover their chemistry.

Love is the X-factor for Cleveland. James and Irving can score when needed, but Love’s presence in the paint (19.0 points, 11.1 assists per game) will be important against physical teams.

Despite making myriad offseason moves, the Pacers looked sluggish to begin the season. They have since bounced back, led by Paul George’s 23.7 points per game. Myles Turner (14.5 ppg) and Jeff Teague (15.3 ppg) are perfect complementary pieces to George’s well-rounded game.

Warriors small forward Kevin Durant will be back in action Monday for their Game 4 matchup against the Trail Blazers, the team announced.

Durant missed the last two games with a left calf strain. He suffered the injury during Game 1, and had been questionable ever since.

There is no word on whether or not Durant will start, but he will at least Cheap Custom Hockey Jerseys be available off the bench. Patrick McCaw has been starting in his place.

Despite Durant’s injury woes, Golden State is in search of a sweep.

Jazz mascot bulldozes Clippers fan who pushed kid during on-court race

The 6-11, 240-pound Pole played in all 82 of the Wizards regular-season games and averaged a double-double for the just the second time in his career, going for 10 points and as many boards a night. He’s the muscle on a team that predicates itself on the perimeter production of John Wall, Bradley Beal and Otto Porter. He’s as rough as they come.

Dude pulled up to his own basketball camp in a military vehicle with a gun the size of Lil’ Bow Wow on top of it.

You think he’s worried about a somebody barking at him after they get tangled up in the paint?

The first-round series between the Clippers and Jazz has been a back-and-forth battle so far, but the Jazz mascot just kicked it up a notch.

Two fans in attendance for Sunday’s Game 4 stepped on the Vivint Arena court during a break in the action to race in giant plastic balls. It appeared to be your typical in-game entertainment. Nothing out of the ordinary — until one of the fans employed some dirty tactics.

The adult fan, wearing a Clippers jersey, turned back and pushed the much younger fan, sporting a Jazz jersey. Jazz Bear refused to let this move go unpunished.

As George later conceded, no, it’s not. Both George and Pacers president of basketball operations Larry Bird — yeah, that guy hit a few clutch shots in his career — agreed Miles Cheap China Jerseys got a good look before the buzzer went off.

A lot of me, of course, being the leader of this team wants the Cheap Authentic Hockey Jerseys last shot. And wants the game to be decided by me, George said (via NBA.com). But at the same time, I’ve got to have trust for my teammates. C.J. has been in that position in this season where I needed him to make a big shot. And I’ve kicked it to him and he’s made the big shot. I thought he had a good look. A very makeable shot for C.J. But I was selfish in the moment. I wanted that shot in that moment.

Rashad McCants: Olympics ‘part of the rollout plan’ for Big3 league

Rashad McCants doesn’t plan on using the Big3 league as a way back to the NBA.

He has his sights on the Tokyo Olympics in 2020.

The International Olympic Committee recently added 3-on-3 Cheap Jerseys In Toronto basketball to the Games, and McCants said that was “part of the rollout plan” when rapper Ice Cube and entertainment executive Jeff Kwatinetz founded the new 3-on-3 professional league this year.

“That’s what makes all the players really excited to be a part of this league,” McCants told Omnisport this week.

In Bogaerts, the Red Sox have, if not the oddest of ducks, then certainly an unusual one: a big, strong up-the-middle player who, more than anything else, puts the ball in play in an era devoted to anything but.

Bogaerts’ style would fit well in previous eras less focused on power. We all dig the long ball, and in any given situation a strikeout can be exhilarating, but what baseball really needs more of is hits. Balls put in play — singles, doubles and the occasional triple — are what we love baseball for, the athleticism of the players, the speed and the teamwork, and the precision of the game.

Otherwise, baseball turns into a combination of darts and a driving Cheap Jerseys Mastercard range. It’s batting and pitching practice put together.

Bogaerts is bringing old-school baseball back, and that might be the most valuable part of his game.

LaVar Ball told middle son LiAngelo he won’t make NBA

Many presume LaVar Ball is detached from reality.

The boisterous father of Lonzo Ball, the UCLA product many prognosticators believe will be taken No. 2 overall by the Lakers in Thursday’s NBA Draft, LaVar is loud, brash and Cheap Jerseys And Hats From China a maniacal marketing maven. The man legitimately believes he could take Michael Jordan in a game of one-on-one despite averaging just 2.2 points per game in a Division I college basketball career that lasted just 36 games at Washington State. He sought a $1 billion endorsement deal from Nike, adidas and Under Armour before setting the price for Lonzo’s signature shoe under their family-owned Big Baller Brand at $495.

“It’s a good opportunity for all of us young guys to kind of show what we can do,” 25-year-old wide receiver Quincy Enunwa said, via NewYorkJets.com. “It’s unfortunate we lost the people that we lost. They were great leaders.”

After the season, the Jets are currently set to have more than $56 million in available cap space — behind only the Detroit Lions, who will likely cut into that soon with an extension for Matthew Stafford.

One of the most underrated players in Major League Baseball over the course of his career, Freeman was enjoying his best season yet, until a pitch fractured his wrist, putting Cheap Jerseys China NHL him out for what will be a big chunk of the year.

A few years ago, Lucroy was the face of a burgeoning pitch framing discussion. Now, he’s panned for that skill – or lacktherof – and his bat hasn’t produced enough to make up for defensive shortcomings.

Brandon Marshall only cares about two stats as his NFL career winds down

Brandon Marshall only cares about two stats as his NFL career comes to a close in New York — winning and efficiency.

Marshall signed a two-year contract worth $12 million with the Giants just five days after being cut by the Jets. In doing so, he joined an already impressive Giants receiving corps that features Pro Bowler Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard. Marshall knows he’s not Cheap Hats And Jerseys the top dog anymore but as long as New York wins, he couldn’t care less.

Both Miller and Bradley have taken similar paths to become the dominant bullpen arms they are and have more in common than it seems.

Miller was taken in the first round of the MLB Draft in 2006 — No. 6 overall by the Tigers. Bradley was selected with the seventh overall pick in 2011 by the Diamondbacks. Both were selected as starting pitchers and were among the most highly touted arms of their draft class.

Miller and Bradley each showed flashes of their high potential in their minor league years. For his MILB career, Miller pitched to a 10-19 record with a 3.70 ERA and an 8.7 K/9 rate in 311.2 innings. Not great, but certainly not bad.

Bradley’s numbers were a tad better, posting a 35-19 minor league record with a 3.01 ERA and a 9.6 K/9 rate in 443 innings pitched.

Both pitchers established their ability to strike batters out; however, their lack of control was also evident. Miller walked 5.1 batter per nine innings, while Bradley’s minor league BB/9 rate was 4.7.

The duo’s lack of control ultimately played a factor in their transition Cheap Indiana Pacers Jerseys to the bullpen. Especially when their wildness was exposed at the big league level.

He’s having the best power year of his career for a team that otherwise lacks pop.

Bulls — Rebuilding is nothing new in the NBA, but Chicago, which made the playoffs last season, could have contended in the Eastern Conference next year with a couple positive moves.

Instead, they traded Butler to Minnesota for Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn Cheap Ireland Rugby Jerseys and Lauri Markkanen — the seventh pick in Thursday night’s draft. While all three of those players are intriguing, they won’t help the Bulls win games any time soon.

Na had scouts’ eyes as early as 2009, when he was a left-handed pitcher for the Yonsei University in Seoul. According to a report then, the Yankees and Dodgers were among five teams interested in Na. However, an achilles injury affected his fastball velocity. Before the injury, he sat in the low 90s, but teams did not want to meet the reported $1.3 million amount he demanded.

The Astros are off to a franchise-best start and are the fourth team since 2000 to win 50 games in their first 74 contests or fewer, joining the 2001 Mariners, 2005 White Sox, 2015 Cardinals. Chicago was the only club of the three to win the World Series, but Houston, which is on pace to win 109 games, has the power and pitching to run the table this fall.

He’s having the best power year of his career for a team Cheap Jerseys And Hats that otherwise lacks pop. As has been the case his entire MLB life, a middling on-base percentage has kept him from being elite.

The offseason was a bit scary for Wieters, when Baltimore, the only organization he has known, essentially chose to pay Welington Castillo on the cheap rather than continue its relationship with the man once thought to be a savior. (People no longer make jokes such as “Matt Wieters’ at-bat music is a moment of silence. For the pitcher.”) A four-time All-Star but never a superstar, Wieters is having another solid season in his first year with the Nationals.
