MIAMI -- A woman performing the national anthem before an NBA preseason game between the 76ers and Heat on Friday night did so while kneeling at midcourt, and she opened her jacket to show a shirt bearing the phrase Black Lives Matter. NFL Jerseys 2018 .The singer was identified by the Miami Heat as Denasia Lawrence, who called the Black Lives Matter movement a rallying cry while explaining her decision to kneel in a Facebook post early Saturday.Were being unjustly killed and overly criminalized, Lawrence wrote. I took the opportunity to sing and kneel to show that we belong in this country and that we have the right to respectfully protest injustices against us.Heat players and coaches stood side by side for the anthem, with their arms linked, as has been their custom during the preseason. Many had their heads down as Lawrence sang, and the team released a statement saying it had no advance knowledge that she planned to kneel.We felt as a basketball team that we would do something united, so that was our focus, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. Throughout all of this, I think the most important thing that has come out is the very poignant, thoughtful dialogue. Weve had great dialogue within our walls here, and hopefully this will lead to action.The anthem issue has been a major topic in the sports world in recent months, starting with the decision by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick to not stand for its playing. Kaepernick cited racial injustice and police brutality among the reasons for his protest, and athletes from many sports -- and many levels, from youth all the way to professional -- have followed his lead in various ways.All I can say is what weve seen in multiple preseason games so far is our players standing for the national anthem, NBA commissioner Adam Silver said in New York earlier Friday, at a news conference after the leagues board of governors meetings. It would be my hope that they would continue to stand for the national anthem. I think that is the appropriate thing to do.The NBA has a rule calling for players and coaches to stand during the anthem.Heat guard Wayne Ellington often speaks about the need to curb gun violence, after his father was shot and killed two years ago. He had his eyes closed for most of the anthem Friday, as per his own custom, though he was aware of Lawrences actions.At the end of the day, to each his own, Ellington said. If she feels like thats the way she wants to stand for it, then more power to her.Making a statement in the manner that Lawrence did Friday is rare, but not unheard of in recent weeks.When the Sacramento Kings played their first home preseason game earlier this month, anthem singer Leah Tysse dropped to one knee as she finished singing the song.Tysse is white. Lawrence is black.I love and honor my country as deeply as anyone yet it is my responsibility as an American to speak up against injustice as it affects my fellow Americans, Tysse wrote on Facebook. I have sung the anthem before but this time taking a knee felt like the most patriotic thing I could do. I cannot idly stand by as black people are unlawfully profiled, harassed and killed by our law enforcement over and over and without a drop of accountability. MLB Jerseys 2018 From China Online Cheap NFL Jerseys 2018 . -- The proud fathers huddled near the Dallas Stars dressing room, smiling, laughing and telling stories while wearing replica green sweaters of their sons team. http://www.chinajerseyswholesalecheap.com/ .

After a 4-2 week, the Cubs jumped back up ahead of the struggling San Francisco Giants, who are just 1-7 since the All-Star break.

Washington NationalsRecord: 58-41 Week 15 ranking: No. 2So far it doesnt look as if rookie Lucas Giolito is ready to make an impact in the rotation down the stretch. He had three walks and no strikeouts in Sundays loss to the Padres and has struck out just five of the 53 batters hes faced in the majors. He has thrown 75 percent fastballs but hasnt shown the command to rely so heavily on that pitch.?-- David Schoenfield (@dschoenfield), SweetSpot3. San Francisco GiantsRecord:?58-40 Week 15 ranking: No. 1The Giants lost their first six games after the All-Star break and watched their NL West lead over the Dodgers shrink in the process. Johnny Cueto and rookie outfielder Mac Williamson helped end the skid in a 12-inning victory over the Yankees on Saturday. -- Jeff Wiser (@OutfieldGrass24), Inside the Zona4. Cleveland IndiansRecord:?56-41 Week 15 ranking: No. 4In a so-so week for the Indians, a bright spot has been rookie Tyler Naquin, who continues to make his case for rookie of the year consideration. He went 7-for-18 this week with three home runs and seven RBIs.?--?Susan Petrone, Its Pronounced Lajaway5. Boston Red SoxRecord: 55-41 Week 15 ranking: No. 5After sweeping the Giants in two, the Red Sox split a four-game set with the Twins. On Sunday, Boston produced a trio of home runs, and Rick Porcello got his 12th win of the season. Ten of his wins have come at home, where he owns a 3.21 ERA (4.01 ERA on the road).?-- Ryan P. Morrison (@ryanpmorrison), Inside the Zona6. Baltimore OriolesRecord:?57-40 Week 15 ranking: No. 6Despite starting rotation concerns, a couple of injury issues and a stomach virus that recently swept through the clubhouse, the Orioles keep winning and currently own the best record in the American League. The teams remaining schedule is daunting, but its impossible to argue with the results.?--?Matt Kremnitzer (@mattkremnitzer), Camden Depot7. Toronto Blue JaysRecord:?55-44 Week 15 ranking: No. 9Where would the Jays be without J.A. Happ? He won his seventh straight decision on Sunday, allowing one hit in six innings, and Toronto has won his past eight starts. Hes 13-3 with a 3.27 ERA. -- David Schoenfield (@dschoenfield), SweetSpot8. Texas RangersRecord:?57-42 Week 15 ranking: No. 7With trade prices being dictated by a thin market, the Rangers might see the trade deadline come and go without adding an impact starter. Instead, theyll need to rely on the back end of the rotation to hold things together until Colby Lewis and Derek Holland are ready to return from the disabled list.?--?Brandon Land (@onestrikeaway), One Strike Away9. Los Angeles DodgersRecord:?56-44 Week 15 ranking: No. 8After losing in 16 innings on Friday, the Dodgers won the next two games in St. Louis. Good sign: Adrian Gonzalez homered in both wins. Gonzalez has just nine home runs and 27 extra-base hits, so getting more power from him down the stretch will be a big key to catching the Giants.?-- David Schoenfield (@dschoenfield), SweetSpot10. Houston AstrosRecord: 54-44 Week 15 ranking: No. 10After sweeping the Angels, the Astros AL West deficit is down to 2? games, after trailing by 8? games at the beginning of July. Top prospect Alex Bregman will be called up on Monday, although manager A.J. Hinch didnt say where hed play. Bregman did start two games in left field at Fresno, although it seems likely hell play third base at least until Yulieski Gurriel is ready.?-- David Schoenfield (@dschoenfield), SweetSpot11. St. Louis CardinalsRecord:?52-46 Week 15 ranking: No. 12In a season filled with injuries and roster shake-ups for the Cardinals, the rotation has been the one constant. After a midweek rainout forced their hand, the Cardinals became the last team in baseball to use a starter outside of the five-man rotation with which it began the season when rookie Mike Mayers lasted just 1 1/3 innings in Sunday nights loss to the Dodgers.??-- ESPN.com12. Miami MarlinsRecord: 53-45 Week 15 ranking: No. 13All eyes are on Ichiro Suzuki, who is?four hits from 3,000. The Marlins would love for him to do it at home this week (they play series against Philly and St. Louis), but its hard to bench the red-hot Christian Yelich (whos hitting .404 during his current 11-game hit streak), All-Star Marcell Ozuna or Giancarlo Stanton?(who had a four-hit game on Saturday).?-- David Schoenfield (@dschoenfield), SweetSpot13. New York MetsRecord: 52-45 Week 15 ranking: No. 11After hitting four homers in 104 games with the Rays in 2015, James Loney has five homers in 44 games with the Mets.

Seattle MarinersRecord: 50-48 Week 15 ranking: No. 17On the field, the Ms took a midweek series from the White Sox -- despite never leading for a single pitch over the three-game span -- thanks to walk-offs from Adam Lind and Leonys Martin. Off the field, Ken Griffey Jr. was enshrined in Cooperstown on Sunday, ensuring well never forget The Kid.?-- Jeff Wiser (@OutfieldGrass24), Inside the Zona15. Detroit TigersRecord: 51-48 Week 15 ranking: No. 15More middling in the middle as the Tigers split a series with the White Sox, took two of three from the Royals but lost two of three to the Twins.

Morrison (@ryanpmorrison), Inside the Zona17. New York YankeesRecord: 50-48 Week 15 ranking: No. 19The members of Team Sell took a bit of a hit this week, as the Yankees took three out of four from the Orioles and two out of three from the Giants. With a week until the trade deadline, the teams results are making selling a harder decision for the front office than it actually should be. This team is mediocre, Hal, and theyre not making the playoffs. Sell Sell Sell! --?Stacey Gotsulias (@StaceGots),?Its About the Money18. Kansas City RoyalsRecord:?48-49 Week 15 ranking: No. 16After the Royals dropped a game under .500 with Sundays loss, the Wade Davis rumors are heating up, with the Nationals reportedly interested. The Royals would want more for Davis than the Yankees would get for Aroldis Chapman (rumors say Cubs shortstop prospect Gleyber Torres) because Davis is signed through 2017. Davis still has a 1.10 ERA even though his K rate has declined from 39 percent two years ago to 24 percent.?-- David Schoenfield (@dschoenfield), SweetSpot19. Chicago White SoxRecord:?48-50 Week 15 ranking: No. 18Chicago pushed to turn a hot start into a chase for the postseason but has finally decided to pull the plug on 2016. All eyes now turn to trade assets, including Todd Frazier, Chris Sale, Jose Quintana and others. Sale was scratched from his last start for disciplinary reasons and suspended five games. -- Ryan P. Morrison (@ryanpmorrison), Inside the Zona20. Colorado RockiesRecord:?47-51 Week 15 ranking: No. 21The Rockies finished a sweep of the Braves on Sunday, their first four-game sweep since July 9-12, 2015, which was also against the Braves. Looking back, those 2015 Rockies were 39-49 while going 22-24 at Coors Field, continuing the recent tradition of losing at home. This years Rockies are only four games under .500, with a positive home record (25-24), and wont necessarily be selling at the trading deadline.?--?Richard Bergstrom (@rbergstromjr), Rockies Zingers21. Los Angeles AngelsRecord: 43-55 Week 15 ranking: No. 23Nick Tropeano became the third Angels starter this year to tear a ligament in his elbow, joining Andrew Heaney and Garrett Richards. Heaney already underwent Tommy John surgery, while Richards is still awaiting the results of platelet-rich plasma injections. Tropeano will also consider that method before undergoing surgery. Before this season, only three Angels pitchers had undergone Tommy John surgery under Mike Scioscia.?-- David Schoenfield (@dschoenfield), SweetSpot22. Oakland AthleticsRecord: 45-54 Week 15 ranking: No. 22After back-to-back walk-off wins on Friday and Saturday (and a third against the Astros on Tuesday), the As decided to score the winning run in the eighth on Sunday. Their past four wins and seven of their past eight have come by one run.?-- David Schoenfield (@dschoenfield), SweetSpot23. San Diego PadresRecord: 43-56 Week 15 ranking: No. 25Matt Kemp is on pace for 36 home runs and 110 RBIs. His WAR, however, is just 0.4 thanks in large degree to a .279 OBP and poor defense. The worst WAR ever for a 30-homer guy: Dante Bichette of the 1999 Rockies, at minus-2.3. (Baseball-Reference credits him with minus-34 runs on defense.)?-- David Schoenfield (@dschoenfield), SweetSpot24. Milwaukee BrewersRecord: 41-55 Week 15 ranking:No. 24Milwaukee is expected to be one of baseballs biggest sellers in the next week. There is interest in multiple Brewers, starting with All-Star catcher Jonathan Lucroy and reliever Carlos Torres. Its not a matter of whether players will be traded but rather when and who.?-- Gabe Stoltz (@Stoltzy3), Disciples of Uecker25. Philadelphia PhilliesRecord:?45-55 Week 15 ranking: No. 20Vince Velasquez is hitting .241, which is quite good for a pitcher. In terms of batting average, hes outhitting Ryan Howard, Cody Asche and Tyler Goeddel, which is quite bad for an offense. However, those who read these comments will note the progress from late April, when Phillies pitchers as a whole were outhitting Phillies left fielders and first basemen.? --?Richard Bergstrom (@rbergstromjr), Rockies Zingers26. Arizona DiamondbacksRecord: 41-57 Week 15 ranking: No. 26Reports surfaced late last week that Arizona is weighing a managerial change. Considering injuries and questionable roster construction, D-backs fans have to wonder whether replacing Chip Hale would help their cause. Top prospect pitcher Braden Shipley will debut Monday. -- Jeff Wiser, Inside the Zona27. Tampa Bay RaysRecord: 38-50 Week 15 ranking: No. 27It has been a decade since the Rays were clear sellers at the trade deadline, but declaring their intentions early has chummed the waters significantly. Any of their starters could be moved with only Chris Archer requiring an unfathomable return. Expect someone to go and wide-eyed fans to be underwhelmed, though the smart ones will hopefully have their faith rewarded.?--?Jason Hanselman (@sandykazmir), The Process Report28. Minnesota TwinsRecord: 37-61 Week 15 ranking: No. 28Although the Twins are mired in last place, Max Kepler?provides real hope. After hitting two triples in Boston over the weekend, he is slugging .500 as a 23-year-old rookie. His gangly muscular frame and sweet lefty swing are reminding fans in Minnesota of a young Justin Morneau.?-- Nick Nelson (@NickNelsonMN), Twins Daily29. Cincinnati RedsRecord:?38-60 Week 15 ranking: No. 29The Reds have won three consecutive series since the All-Star break, and Billy Hamilton -- who recently returned to the leadoff spot -- has keyed the charge, with a seven-game hitting streak. Since the break he also has 10 stolen bases and 10 runs scored. Is it too early to start printing the playoff tickets??--?Chad Dotson (@dotsonc), Redleg Nation30. Atlanta BravesRecord: 33-66 Week 15 ranking:?No. 30To open the second half, the Braves have gone 2-7 versus sub-.500 teams.

NEW YORK -- Max Scherzer celebrated aboard a boat off the British Virgin Islands, doused by college pals on a floating party. Cyber Mondy NFL Jerseys 2018.Rick Porcello enjoyed the moment at his parents home in New Jersey, surrounded by family, friends and a few bottles of wine.As for Justin Verlander, well, fuming supermodel Kate Upton brought the heat for her fiance.Rotation mates for five seasons in Detroit, the three right-handers topped the Cy Young Award talk Wednesday: Scherzer easily won the NL prize, Porcello edged out Verlander for the AL honor.Thats just the weird thing about these, said Scherzer, who ruled the majors with 284 strikeouts and topped the NL with 20 wins for Washington. Its the voting.Porcello led baseball with 22 wins for Boston, and had a 3.15 ERA.Porcello won despite getting just eight of the 30 first-place votes from members of the Baseball Writers Association of America -- this was the first time the AL Cy winner didnt get the most firsts.Verlander went 16-9 with a 2.40 ERA while leading the AL in strikeouts and other categories. He got 14 first-place votes, but didnt draw as much support across the board -- he was left off two ballots, too.Overall, Porcello won 137-132 in the second-closest vote since 1970 (Verlander lost by four points to David Price in 2012).Voters list their five picks in order. A first-place vote is worth seven points, four for second, three for third, two for fourth and one for fifth. Verlander needed to pick up five more points to match Porcello.Upton fired off three tweets, one of them rather saucy, telling Porcello you didnt win.Asked whether he was bothered by the brouhaha, Porcello simply said, No, I honestly dont care.Im not the one who made the decision, he said on a conference call.Porcello got a $100,000 bonus for winning the Cy. Verlander, who won the 2011 award, wouldve gotten $500,000 for this win.Porcello bounced back from going 9-15 in his first season with the Red Sox, finishing 22-4 for the AL East champs.He shared this last win of 2016 with those who never wavered in their support, admitting, It was hard not to start balling and crying.Clevelands Corey Kluber was third and got three first-place votes. Baltimore reliever Zach Britton, who went 47 for 47 on save chances with a 0.54 ERA, had five first-place votes and was fourth.Scherzer breezed, drawing 25 first-place votes to beat out Chicago Cubs teammates Jon Lester and Kyle Hendricks.Scherzer became the sixth pitcher to earn the Cy Young in both leagues. After earning the AL honor in 2013 with the Tigers, Scherzer joined Roger Clemens, Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez, Gaylord Perry and Roy Halladay as winners in both leagues.This award, Scherzer said, meant even more than the first one.It just verifies everything I try to achieve, he said.Scherzer posted a record-tying 20-strikeout performance for the NL East champion Nationals, a year after he threw two no-hitters in his first season with Washington.I want to find a way to be better, he said.Scherzer is the first pitcher from a Washington franchise to win a Cy Young. The award was first presented in 1956.Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw got three first-place votes and finished fifth. Jose Fernandez, the Miami star killed in a boating accident in September, was seventh.The final major postseason awards will be presented Thursday when the MVP honors are announced.Cubs slugger Kris Bryant, Washingtons Daniel Murphy and newly presented Rookie of the Year Corey Seager of the Dodgers are up for the NL award. Mike Trout of the Angels, Mookie Betts of the Red Sox and Jose Altuve of the Astros are the AL contestants. NFL Jerseys Deals . -- Three close looks at the bucket, three misses. Cheap NFL Jerseys China http://www.chinajerseysdeals.com/ . -- Lou Brocks shoulder-to-shoulder collision with Bill Freehan during the 1968 World Series and Pete Roses bruising hit on Ray Fosse in the 1970 All-Star game could become relics of baseball history, like the dead-ball era. ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Cardinals have placed Michael Wacha on the 15-day disabled list with shoulder inflammation, a day after his latest start, and purchased the contract of top prospect Alex Reyes from Triple-A Memphis.Reyes will pitch out of the bullpen. General Manager John Mozeliak said Tuesday another highly touted prospect, Luke Weaver, will likely make Wachas scheduled start Saturday and a corresponding roster move would be made then.Its an honor to put this uniform on, Reyes said. I dont know what it will feel like once I step out there, but Im sure it will be fun.To make room for Reyes, catcher Brayan Pena (left knee) was transferred from the 15-day DL to the 60-day DL.The 21-year-old Reyes started for the World Team at the Futures Game during All-Star week and is 2/3 with a 4.96 ERA in 14 starts and 93 strikeouts in 65 1/3 innings. The start of his season was delayed by a 50-game suspension after testing positive for marijuana use.One of the most impressive things for me is the statements he made and the conversation he had with all the young players in extended spring and talked about some of the decisions he made and the repercussions of those and then getting to work to try to put that behind him and moving forward, manager Mike Matheny said. Thats a lot of growing up for a 21-year-old to do in one year.Reyes iss 20-21 with a 3. Cheap Jerseys Cyber Mondy. 50 ERA in 69 career minor league starts. He has hit triple digits on the radar gun, but the key for Reyes will be control.When youre putting guys on base, the game teaches you pretty quick that thats not going to work, Matheny said. He gets it. Hes only 21, but hes still been around long enough to know what were looking for around here. We need him to be in the strike zone.Wacha is 7-7 with a 4.45 ERA. He allowed four runs in five innings and got no decision in a 5-4 come-from-behind victory on Monday.Hes definitely been struggling with command for some time and if there was a correlation between the two, its been going on for quite a while, Mozeliak said. But in terms of us feeling like it was time to get him looked at, I certainly felt after last nights outing that that made sense.The injury is similar to the one the prematurely ended Wachas 2014 season.Weaver, 22, spent most of this season at Double-A Springfield, but pitched six scoreless innings in his Triple-A debut on Monday.I feel like the ability to throw strikes in games, I do think thats important, Mozeliak said. He only had one start in Triple-A, but I do feel like he will give us a chance to win that ball game.Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

METAIRIE, La. Authentic Cheap Jerseys . -- Jrue Holiday couldnt hide his enthusiasm after his first practice with the New Orleans Pelicans this season.Holiday spent the past three months tending to his wife, Lauren, who gave birth to the couples daughter in late September and underwent surgery one month later to remove a benign tumor from the right side of her brain.Holiday said Thursday he is excited to play in his first game this season, Friday against the Portland Trail Blazers. But he was more thrilled that his wifes recovery was far enough along that both felt comfortable with his return.Asked why he was returning now, Holiday said, Because my wife said I could.It was really just to see where my wife was in her recovery. And since shes doing so well, and since my daughters getting bigger, and since my family and her family are there to help her out with anything ... I just feel comfortable being back and being able to leave them, if its on a road trip or whatever it is.As hard as it is, again, Im really excited.Lauren Holiday -- formerly Lauren Cheney -- was a longtime member of the United States womens national soccer team.Jrue Holiday respectfully declined to give specifics on his wifes condition, or where she and their daughter, Jrue Tyler Holiday, will stay during the season. Holiday, 26, said FaceTime will allow him to see his familys progress during Pelicans road trips.The Holidays found out about Laurens condition this summer. They relocated to the Raleigh, North Carolina, area, near the Duke University medical specialists who handled the surgery.My wife was, I think, four or five months pregnant, and all of a sudden she found out she had a tumor, Holiday said. Because she has another person in her, obviously there are things she couldnt do for them to know what type of tumor it was or how serious it was.Holiday said he was able to see peoples true colors in such trying times, and the reaction from fans and the Pelicans organization has left him feeling blessed. He said the Pelicans, from whom he has received constant communication and support, have been open to his taking a day off should he need it.She has great fans who support her through soccer internationally or through her faith, he said. I mean, just on Twitter, every day people are always saying theyre praying for her. ... So many people since Ive been back, they dont even ask how Im doing, they ask how my wifes doing. And to me, thats awesome. That just shows how great people are around us.Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said theres a good chance Holiday, a regular starter, wont be in the starting lineup on Friday as he acclimates to game conditions. Gentry said he will discuss the situation with Holiday at shootaround.Its going to be fine, Gentry said. Obviously its going to take a little while for him to get his timing back, from a basketball standpoint. I think hes in really good shape conditioning-wise and everything, but you have to actually participate and play in games to get your basketball timing.Holiday has maintained his conditioning by working out with assistant coach Jamelle McMillan and a strength and conditioning coach while away.The 2-10 Pelicans are in last place in the Western Conference, but Holiday said hes encouraged by what he has seen.I dont think our record shows how good we are, Holiday said. I do think we have a lot of effort there and obviously there are some games where we were there at the end of the game and we had it won, but [there are] some things that we have to clean up at the end of the game to seal the deal.I can do whatever they want me to do -- if its cheerlead, hand out Gatorades, play defense, call a set, whatever it is. Im just here to help.Holiday was limited to a combined 74 games in his first two seasons in New Orleans because of right leg injuries, but he broke through in 2015-16, averaging 16.8 points and six assists and a career-high 19.7 player efficiency rating in 65 games. His season was cut short after he fractured an orbital wall of his right eye during a game.Im so excited, Holiday said of his season debut. At the end of it my teammates are always there for me. My teammates and the Pelicans were always there. To come back and fight for them like they supported me, Im happy to do it. Wholesale NFL Jerseys Online .

NEW YORK -- As the NBA looks for a new home for the 2017 All-Star Game, cities are lining up with open arms to welcome LeBron James, Stephen Curry and the hundred million or so dollars the festivities would bring to the local economy.New Orleans is the favorite, a person close to the situation told The Associated Press. The person said the league and city are deep in negotiations to stage the game there for a third time. The person spoke to AP on condition of anonymity because the details of the discussions have not been publicly announced.The league moved the game out of Charlotte on Thursday because of its objections to a North Carolina law that limits anti-discrimination protections for lesbian, gay and transgender people. The league also said it hoped to announce a new location for next Februarys events shortly and will reschedule the 2019 game for Charlotte if there is a resolution to the matter.Even before the announcement, the league had heard from cities that were available and interested in taking over the weekend -- which has grown into more like a week.Besides having open dates in arenas, cities would need to have necessary hotel space. Officials from several have expressed interest, including Boston and Atlanta.But New Orleans, with its good February weather and endless entertainment options, is the heavy favorite, the person told AP.Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards has said in a statement it would be an honor to have the game return to New Orleans.Louisiana is rich in diversity of heritage, culture, cuisine and people, and we believe the NBA could not select a better place for everyone to come and enjoy this spectacular sporting event, he said.Besides multiple Super Bowls and college football bowl games, New Orleans hosted the 2008 and 2014 NBA All-Star Games. The city is easily walkable and has moderate temperatures that time of year, a bonus after frigid temperaturres the last two years in New York and Toronto. Triple Black Nike Air Huarache Ultra Breathe Shoes Mens Womens. .The NBA announced plans for the 2008 game just nine months after Hurricane Katrina devastated the city in 2005. The weekend brought about $100 million into the city to aid its recovery, and now New Orleans could benefit again because of Charlottes loss.The National Basketball Players Association said Friday it supported the leagues decision to move the game that would have been in Currys hometown.North Carolina is home to a sizable number of current and former NBPA members. They and our entire membership looked forward to participating in the All-Star week activities in the Charlotte community, the union said in a statement. However, the enactment of legislation that challenges the right of all Americans from discrimination threatened the ability of every attendee to enjoy the All-Star festivities.Northern cities were excluded for years due to owners preferences for warm weather. But with the league being open to those locations under Commissioner Adam Silver, cities such as Cleveland, Portland and Boston have shown interest in hosting an All-Star Game.Orlando held the 2012 game, boasts loads of hotel and entertainment options, and could be a fitting choice for the LGBT community after a gunman killed 49 patrons at a gay nightclub in the city last month.But with the league hoping to announce a new destination in the coming weeks, New Orleans is well on its way to being selected, the official said.It would be an honor to have this event return to New Orleans, and we look forward to sharing our hospitality with basketball fans from around the country, Edwards said. My office will support and assist Tom Benson and the New Orleans Pelicans in any way possible to help bring the NBA All-Stars back. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

MIAMI -- Miami Marlins right-hander Henderson Alvarez had thrown only 72 pitches after six shutout innings against the Pittsburgh Pirates when manager Mike Redmond yanked him for a pinch-hitter. Nike Air Force 1 07 Baratas . The game was scoreless, the bases were loaded, and Redmond figured Miami might not muster another threat. His move paid off when pinch-hitter Placido Polanco put the Marlins ahead with an infield single, and they went on to win 2-0 Friday night. "Its always a tough decision when somebody is pitching as well as Alvarez was," Redmond said. "But thats the best pitching staff in the National League that were going against, and I wasnt sure we were going to get another chance. We went for it, and it worked out." Lowly Miami beat the Pirates at their own game, combining dominant pitching with just enough offence. Alvarez earned his first National League victory, and four relievers completed a five-hitter. The shutout was only the third by the Marlins, but their starters have an ERA of 2.44 since the All-Star break. Theyre 4-4 over that stretch even though they have totalled only 15 runs. "Its unreal going in knowing you have a chance even though the bats havent been there, and knowing one run may be enough," slugger Giancarlo Stanton said. "You can go about the game completely differently." Stanton provided an insurance run in the seventh with his 12th homer. Jeff Locke (9-3) allowed two earned runs in 6 2-3 innings and had a career-high nine strikeouts, but he lost for the first time in his past 10 road starts. He walked six, and his ERA rose to 2.15. "Kind of sloppy," the left-hander said. "I felt really good, but just command wasnt there." Alvarez (1-1) hit 98 mph on the radar gun, gave up just two hits in six innings, and lowered his ERA to 2.64. "That was a great performance," Redmond said. "Thats the hardest Ive seen him throw. You could tell he was pumped up. When youre playing a playoff team, its good to see guys take it up a notch." The start was Alvarezs fifth after he sat out the first half of the season because of right shoulder inflammation. "He just had explosive stuff," the Pirates Russell Martin said. "His fastball was electric." Steve Cishek, Miamis fifth pitcher, gave up a pair of two-out singles in the ninth inning but earned his 21st save in 23 chances, including 16 in a row. He retired pinch-hitter Jose Tabata on a groundout with two on to end the game. Pittsburgh managed only six baserunners, including one erased on a double play, and went 0 for 6 with runners in scoring position. The Pirates struck out six times in the final three innings against Marlins relievers. The game was scoreless until the sixth, when Locke gave up two walks sandwiched around a single by rookie Jake Marisnick, his first major-league hit. With the bases loaded and one out, Polanco batted for Alvarez and tapped a dribbler toward third for an RBI infield hit. Third baseman Pedro Alvarez charged to field the ball but made no throw. "We went for it," Redmond said. "It wasnt pretty, but it worked." Stanton went 2 for 2 with two walks in four trips to the plate. He led off the seventh inning with a homer off Locke. "I got the sense he was like, All right, he hasnt seen anything all day. Im going to see what he can do with it," Stanton said. "Youve got to make sure you take advantage of that." The Marlins had a hit in each of the first five innings, but during that stretch they grounded into a double play and had two runners thrown out. Catcher Martin absorbed a blow when he tagged out Jeff Mathis, who was trying to score from first on Alvarezs two-out double in the second inning. Martin said he tweaked his left knee on the play, and he left the game in the seventh, but said the injury was minor. Jordy Mercer extended his hitting streak to a career-best 11 games with a single in the third. That was the Pirates lone hit until Starling Marte reached on a bunt single with two out in the sixth.

Louis Blues. Shane Hnidy joins Brian Munz for the broadcast on TSN 1290 Radio at 7pm ct. HOUSTON -- After dominating five opponents for an average margin of victory of 43 points, the USA mens basketball team left for Rio de Janeiro on Tuesday night as the No. 1-ranked team in the world and remained set on winning another gold medal.They are in a good position, and just to get to know one another, I think its helped us, Team USA coach Mike Krzyzewski said after Mondays final exhibition game, a convincing 110-66 victory over Team Nigeria. People [ask] what challenges you live by when you win by 40 or 30 points. [Id] rather have those questions than you eked it out by eight. Hopefully, we can keep that going. The competition is going to get better, really good.Krzyzewski canceled Tuesdays scheduled practice to allow the players to work on individual drills at the Houston Rockets practice facility. There was also a weight-lifting session for players who wanted it.The only concerns are two minor injuries to point guard Kyrie Irving (quad) and forward Paul George (calf), who didnt play in Mondays game but are expected to be ready for Rio.During the five exhibitions, Krzyzewski worked on different rotations, which allowed big men DeAndre Jordan and DeMarcus Cousins to get accustomed to playing on the perimeter. He used Jimmy Butler, normally a shooting guard with the Chicago Bulls, as a point guard at times and employed a three-guard alignment during some games. The defense has been strong, as Team USA forced its opponents into 19.6 turnovers per game.All thats missing is superstars such as LeBron James, Russell Westbrook and current NBA MVP Stephen Curry. Comprar Nike Air Force 1. The current team has its own superstar roster in former MVP Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, Klay Thompson, Carmelo Anthony and DeMar DeRozan.Durant said this group is having fun but is getting ready for the challenge of winning a gold medal after the grind of an 82-game NBA regular season and postseason games for some players such as Green and Thompson, who played in the NBA Finals, and Durant, who played in the Western Conference finals.Ive been having fun, and now were at a different level of having fun, Durant said. Its been sweet here. Everything is easy when you feel like you have so many guys who you can rely on and lean on. Every time you get here, you dont have to worry about anything. Coach K does a great job of protecting us. USA does a great job of protecting us as a group. Its easy, and its fun.In the previous two Olympics, Team USA went 16-0 under Krzyzewski, with two gold medals to add to his legendary coaching career. If the USA wins a gold medal again, it will be a fitting end to Krzyzewskis run as Team USA coach. San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich will take over next year.Another gold medal-winning performance would give Anthony three gold medals as a member of Team USA.Theres an excitement knowing what were trying to do, and were all locked in, Anthony said. We have a new location now, and were focused on playing basketball. For me, its a very exciting time. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

MIAMI -- Brandon Crawford was a big hit Monday night. Nike Air Max 2017 Dames Sale . Seven of them, to be exact.Crawford became the first major leaguer in 41 years to get seven hits in a game, finally putting the San Francisco Giants ahead to stay with an RBI single in the 14th inning of an 8-7 victory over the Miami Marlins.A great performance, said Giants bench coach Ron Wotus, who filled in as manager after Bruce Bochy was hospitalized with an illness.Bochy picked a heck of a day to take off.The previous player to get seven hits in a game was Pittsburgh Pirates infielder Rennie Stennett on Sept. 16, 1975, at the Chicago Cubs. He did it in nine innings, the only big leaguer to accomplish that feat since before 1900.It doesnt happen very often that you get eight at-bats in a game so I figured it didnt happen a whole lot, but you dont think about stuff like that when youre playing, Crawford said.The San Francisco shortstop, who entered in a 6-for-36 slide, raised his batting average 13 points to .278. He tripled, doubled and had five singles in eight at-bats, tying the NL record for hits in a game.I got a couple to drop in and squeak past and then I hit a few balls hard, too, that found holes, Crawford said. I felt good.The seven hits set a franchise mark.Its crazy to me, Crawford said. The history of the Giants with all of the great players that have come through, you would think that somebody pushed across seven hits in one day, but its pretty crazy to be in pretty small company.Crawfords hits came off six different pitchers.What do you have to do to get that guy out? I dont know, Marlins manager Don Mattingly said. We didnt figure it out today. Hes a tough out right now and obviously, when youre getting seven hits, youre feeling pretty good about yourself. So Im sure this whole series, its not going to be fun trying to get him out.The only major league player besides Stennett to get seven hits in a nine-inning game was Wilbert Robinson for the old Baltimore Orioles of the National League in 1892.Johnny Burnett holds the major league mark for an extra-inning game with nine hits for Cleveland in a 1932 contest that lasted 18 innings.George Kontos (3-2) pitched two scoreless innings to earn the victory.Relievers dont get measured on wins and losses for the most part, but to be out there in a game like that and be able to throw the final pitch and stamp my name on a win like that -- it was just a gutsy, gritty game, Kontos said.The Giants were without Bochy, admitted to a Miami hospital in the morning after feeling ill. He was to be monitored overnight and is expected back on the bench Tuesday night.San Francisco went 6 for 21 with runners in scoring position and left 18 on base in a game that took 5 hours, 34 minutes -- the longest of the season for both teams.Exhausting, Crawford said. Im tired right now.Andrew Cashner, Miamis scheduled starter for Friday, entered in the top of the 14th to face Crawford with two on and he lined a single to center field that scored Brandon Belt for an 8-7 lead.I try to take every at-bat separate whether Im 0 for 4 with four strikeouts or 6 for 7, Crawford said. I was just trying to get the runner in any way I could.Christian Yelich homered and tied a career high with four RBI for the Marlins. Martin Prado also went deep and drove in two runs. They hit back-to-back homers in the fifth.San Francisco threatened in the 13th when Crawford hit a one-out triple off Dustin McGowan (1-3). After the second out, Mattingly intentionally walked two batters to get to the pitchers spot in the order.The Giants were out of position players, leaving ace pitcher Madison Bumgarner, a .183 hitter with legitimate power, to pinch-hit with the bases loaded. He struck out to end the inning.The Marlins took a 5-1 lead into the seventh behind a solid outing from Jose Fernandez, who allowed one run in six innings.The Giants scored five times in the seventh off three relievers and started the inning with six consecutive hits on their way to a 6-5 lead.Miami responded with Yelichs two-run single. Crawfords single in the eighth tied it at 7.We bounced back, Mattingly said. They bounced back and from there it was crazy after that.Giants starter Johnny Cueto allowed five runs in five innings.WAY TO GO, ICHIROMarlins outfielder Ichiro Suzuki received a standing ovation before his pinch-hit appearance in the sixth after getting his 3,000th career hit Sunday in Colorado. Suzuki tipped his helmet in appreciation before grounding out in his only at-bat.TRAINERS ROOMGiants: OF Hunter Pence fouled a ball off his eye on Saturday. He was given a day off Sunday and was back in the lineup Monday. Hes fine, Wotus said.Marlins: 1B Justin Bour (ankle) has taken a break from his rehab stint, citing soreness, but could return to the big league club on this homestand, which ends Sunday. Were hopeful, but its probably a 50-50 thing, Mattingly said.UP NEXTGiants: LHP Matt Moore (7-7, 4.04 ERA overall) makes his second start with the Giants on Tuesday after being acquired in a trade with Tampa Bay.Marlins: RHP Tom Koehler (8-8, 4.05) is 2-0 with a 0.90 ERA in his last three starts. Nike Air Max 2017.5 Kpu . Burris threw two TD passes, including a key 15-yard fourth-quarter strike to Bakari Grant that effectively countered a Toronto comeback bid and led Hamilton to a 33-19 victory. Nike Vapormax Zwart Heren . Argentina winger Ezequiel Lavezzi and France midfielder Blaise Matuidi scored, with star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic setting up both despite having a poor game by his high standards. Forward Eduardo gave Ajaccio the lead in the sixth minute after being set up by right winger Benjamin Andre, and the Corsican side looked comfortable in the first half, with the lively Johan Cavalli causing problems with his probing runs from midfield.http://www.onlinenikeschoenenoutlet.nl/849558-060-nike-air-vapormax-flyknit-heren-schoenen-zuiver-platina-rood.html . -- The Magic have their first victory of the new year.

It might not have mattered. While the Dodgers are preparing for the playoffs, the Padres showed their future has promise behind two rookies. When the final penalty kick left the right foot of Brazil forward Neymar on Saturday night, swimmer Yusra Mardini clutched her older sister Sarahs hand. In the moment, Yusra was torn. Since she was a young girl growing up in the Syrian capital of Damascus, she has been a fan of Spanish football club FC Barcelona, which Neymar joined in 2013. She calls him her idol and says he, along with her other idols Michael Phelps and Usain Bolt, made her believe she, too, could one day become an Olympian.But tonight, she said, I am cheering for Germany. Germany, now, is my home.One year ago on this day, Mardini, 18, and her sister became heroes to 18 people and symbols of hope to refugees around the world. Since being named to the 2016 Refugee Olympic Team, a first-of-its-kind team comprised of 10 refugees from four nations who competed at the Rio Summer Games under the Olympic flag, Mardinis story has garnered international attention. In Rio, she met swimmers Missy Franklin and Conor Dwyer and was overcome with emotion the first time she dove into the Olympic pool and realized she was swimming in the same water as Phelps.My life has changed completely, said Yusra, who competed in the 100-meter freestyle and 100-meter butterfly. It is incredible.No. It is unbelievable, Sarah corrected. One year ago today, we were in the boat. She looks down at her white iPhone, then picks it up and lights up its display. Yusra, look what time it is: 8:16 p.m. One year ago at this time, we are still in the water.The Mardini sisters story is as improbable and inspiring as any to come out of these Games, yet one that likely would never have been told if not for Yusra being identified as a candidate for the Refugee Team. After the war in Syria destroyed their familys home and the swimming facility where they trained, their parents agreed to allow Yusra and Sarah to flee the war-torn nation with two of their fathers cousins and a friend.They flew to Istanbul, Turkey, took a bus to Izmir with a group of about 30 refugees and smugglers and waited for four days before boarding a dinghy with 18 other refugees, including a 6-year-old boy, bound for the Greek island of Lesvos.On their first attempt at the crossing, they were stopped by border agents and turned around. On their second trip, the engine on their dinghy broke and the boat began to take on water. It was dark, the waters choppy and only the Mardinis and two men on board the boat knew how to swim.In the beginning, Sarah told me, Dont help anyone. Just go. Swim with me. If we drown, we drown, Yusra said. But then she was the first one who got out of the boat to push.For three-and-a-half hours, the sisters swam, fighting the current and the weight of their clothing, pulling and pushing the boat to help it remain on course. The two men also jumped into the water to help and took turns pushing the boat, but they eventually gave up, too exhausted to continue.They couldnt handle as much because they are normal people, Yusra said. We can handle more because we are sports people. At first, no one wanted us to jump in the water because we are girls. When we get in the water, the guys from Somalia were like, My god, you are brave. I was like, Shut up now. Please shut up. Dont tell mme Im courageous. Nike Performance Air Max Sequent. . When we arrive safely, then say whatever you want.Throughout the swim, the Mardinis said there were times they werent sure theyd made the right choice to leave Syria, when they didnt believe they would make it to Lesvos alive.We missed home, Sarah said. You think, I dont want this trip. You are in the middle of the sea. No one is hearing you and no one is helping you. So you keep going.Around 10 oclock that night, the group arrived on the shores of Lesvos, safe but staring down months of grueling travel on foot and by bus. The Mardinis eventually arrived in a refugee camp in Berlin, where an Egyptian interpreter connected them with a swim coach who agreed to train the girls who had saved a boatload of people. It had been months since that night in the Mediterranean Sea, and the sisters wanted nothing more than to return to the water and to once again train in the sport they loved.In the water that night, I thought it would be a shame if we die in the water and we are swimmers, Yusra said.No, Sarah corrected. That it would be a shame to let the people with us die and we are swimmers. We didnt care about ourselves.For both sisters, swimming has been their passion and competing in the Olympics a childhood dream. Now that Yusra is an Olympian, they say their work has only begun. On Monday, Sarah, who speaks multiple Arabic dialects and English, will return to Greece, where she is volunteering to greet refugees upon their arrival and provide them with food, water and guidance. She has also started her own human rights organization in Berlin, which she named RTR, for Refugee to Refugee.I hurt my shoulder that night in the water, so for months I could not train with my sister, Sarah said. I decided to do something with my mind. Now I am a human rights activist. I want to give something back to others like me and my sister, not just from Syria but from all over the world. We have our papers and our family in Berlin. We have everything, so I want to give back to the others. I will be the wall they will rest on.Yusra, too, wants to help refugees, and she wants to become an activist who fights for the right for girls to participate in sports. She says already, she has received many emails and Twitter messages from women and young girls from around the world who say theyve been inspired by her story, and she makes a point to respond to every message.In Syria, the girl who does sport, she is called a whore by people, Yusra said. This is how closed their minds are in how they think. We fought all the time to swim. But we were lucky. We came from a good family. My mom and dad, they support us. But now we are still fighting and doing our best to rise women up in any way we can.One year ago, it would have been impossible for Yusra and Sarah to imagine their lives today, to believe they would be watching the final football game of the Rio Olympics from white leather chairs at a party thrown by Visa, Yusras Olympic sponsor, at an opulent hotel overlooking Copacabana Beach.One year ago, it was difficult for the Mardini sisters to imagine a future at all. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

They just keep doing it. Nike Air Force 1 Low Comprar . With their surprising 35-30 win at the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Dallas Cowboys have won eight games in a row, powered, in large part, by a pair of rookies.As such, #PulseOfTheNation asks:Ezekiel Elliott has put up the most eye-opening numbers. He moved past 1,000 yards with his 32-yard, game-winning touchdown Sunday and is now at a league-leading 1,005 for the season.Dak Prescotts raw numbers arent as impressive, but the rookie QB has been the steadiest of hands in guiding Dallas during Tony Romos absence and has convinced many observers that his time is now. With another interception-free performance against Pittsburgh, Prescott has 14 touchdowns and two picks, as well as an eight-game win streak (second-longest among rookies since the merger). Nike Air Force 1 Low Mujer .C. -- Rodney Hood connected from all over the court while freshman Jabari Parker was busy swatting shots and scoring in transition. Nike Air Force 1 High Comprar . -- The Sacramento Kings are set to become the first major professional sports franchise to accept Bitcoin virtual currency for ticket and merchandise purchases. http://www.zapatillasairforce1.es/nike-air-force-1-07.html . "It doesnt get any better than that," Giambi said. "Im speechless." The Indians are roaring toward October. Giambi belted a two-run, pinch-hit homer with two outs in the ninth inning to give Cleveland a shocking 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night, keeping the Indians up with the lead pack in the AL wild-card race. Entering any NFL season, there is uncertainty about just how much a player might produce, but the greatest uncertainty is reserved for the rookies, those first year players so full of promise in the draft, or minicamp or even early in training camp, but its never a sure thing until the games count for real. Last year, the rookie class brought difference makers right out of the gate. Much of the attention focused on quarterbacks, as Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III and Russell Wilson turned their teams into winners, but rookie running back Alfred Morris may have been the one that had the most fantasy impact. Griffin III passed for 3,200 yards and 20 touchdowns, running for 815 yards and seven more touchdowns and was one of the top handful of fantasy quarterbacks. Luck threw for 4,374 yards and 23 touchdowns, adding five more touchdowns on the ground. His 18 interceptions made Luck less appealing than RGIII, but he was still a viable starter for fantasy purposes. Wilson was a third-round pick, so not as hyped as the top two picks in the draft, Luck and Griffin III, but there was little doubt that Wilson was immediately ready for the challenge. His 3,118 passing yards was okay, but 26 passing touchdowns and four more rushing touchdowns made Wilson a low-end fantasy starter. Three rookie quarterbacks producing at a high level and Tampa Bay running back Doug Martin, a late first-round pick, merely gained 1,926 yards from scrimmage and scored 14 touchdowns. However, Morris was a sixth-round pick running back playing for a team that had cobbled together a running game the previous two seasons with the likes of Roy Helu, Ryan Torain and Tim Hightower. Who knew that unheralded Morris would run for 1,613 yards and 13 touchdowns, ranking second in both categories? As a late-round pick in fantasy drafts or, in some cases, a waiver pickup after 96 yards and two touchdowns in Week One, Morris may have been the most influential rookie in 2012. Not all rookie classes are created equally. In 2011, Cam Newton was a fantasy goldmine as other rookie quarterbacks struggled and none of the rookie runners impressed, but receivers A.J. Green and Julio Jones had an immediate impact. In 2010, Rob Gronkowski had 10 touchdowns for the Patriots, making him the best of an uninspiring first-year crop. So, recognizing how much uncertainty is involved when it comes to first-year pros, who are some of the offensive freshman candidates to have an eye on for 2013? Eddie Lacy (and Johnathan Franklin), RB, Green Bay - Lacy, a second-round pick, and Franklin, a fourth-round pick, face the challenge of upgrading the Packers running game. While the passing game is going to be front and centre as long as Aaron Rodgers is directing the offence, Lacy and Franklin are an upgrade on the mediocrity that has marked the Packers ground game in recent seasons as Dujuan Harris, Alex Green and James Starks have seen much of the action in the backfield. A powerfully-built back who gained 1,511 yards from scrimmage and scored 19 touchdowns as a junior at Alabama last season, Lacy could be in position to score, and run out the clock when the Packers have the lead this season and, provided he wins the starting job, Lacy could be one of the better bets for production among rookie runners. LeVeon Bell, RB, Pittsburgh - A big runner who fits the mold of physical backs that the Steelers have lined up in recent seasons, Bell is an upgrade in terms of skill. He gained 1,960 yards from scrimmage and scored 13 touchdowns as a junior at Michigan State last season and there appears to be a real opportunity available to Bell to play a prominent role in a Steelers offence that is undergoing some personnel changes. Giovani Bernard, RB, Cincinnati - Drafted in the second round out of North Carolina, Bernard racked up 31 touchdowns and 3,333 yards from scrimmage in two years with the Tar Heels. He has a more-established veteran, BenJarvus Green-Ellis, ahead of him on the depth chart, but Bernard will push for more than a reserve role. DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Houston - Being the number two wide receiver for the Texans hasnt been a terribly productive spot, but Hopkins presents a whole new threat. Hes not a burner, but Hopkins has good size, which should make him a red zone threat (he scored 18 touchdowns for Clemson as a junior last season). So long as Andre Johnson is Matt Schaubs first choice in the passing game and Arian Foster commands a lot of touches in the backfield, there is a ceiling on how much Hopkins can produce as a rookie, but as he gains the trust of Schaub and the coaches, Hopkins could warrant consideration in deeper leagues. Aaron Dobson, WR, New England - Considering the Patriots depleted receiving corps, second-round pick Dobson could see a lot more action than might have been anticipated coming out of Marshall having never gained more than 700 yards in a season. Hes a big target who can make a spectacular catch and if he earns a starting job with the Patriots right off the bat, Tom Brady could drag enough production out of Dobson to make him a viable fantasy player. Montee Ball, RB, Denver - Ball ran roughshod over the Big 10 while at Wisconsin, gaining 4,131 yards from scrimmage and scoring 61 touchdowns in his junior and senior seasons, but the second-round pick remains locked in a battle with second-year back Ronnie Hillman (who is almost a year younger) for the Broncos starting job. If Ball could move into a starting role, even with the Broncos pass-oriented offence, that would mean opportunities for him to score. Tavon Austin, WR, St. Louis - The highest-drafted skill-position player, taken eighth overall out of West Virginia, Austin is on the small side, but was a multi-faceted threat in college, gaining 1,932 yards from scrimmage (including 643 rushing yards on 72 attempts) with 15 touchdowns as a senior. Nike Air Force 1 High Baratas. The Rams passing game is a work in progress and Austin may need some time before he develops into a consistent threat out of the slot or across from deep threat Chris Givens, but hes worth tracking as your fantasy draft approaches. Geno Smith, QB, N.Y. Jets - If he cant beat out Mark Sanchez for the starting job, and an ankle injury isnt helping his case, then Smith obviously isnt going to provide much value, but Smith was so productive (8,590 passing yards and 73 passing touchdowns the last two years at West Virginia) and accurate (completing 71.2% of his passes last season) that he should find his way onto the field at some point this year and then well see if he can make the Jets offence any more competent. Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Minnesota - Not only is Patterson a receiver who can run (25 carries for 308 yards at Tennessee last season), hes a big target (6-foot-2, 220 pounds), who just may give the Vikings a viable passing game to complement running back Adrian Peterson. With an unproven quarterback and the aforementioned Mr. Peterson lugging the rock, dont place unreasonable expectations on Patterson, but hes one to watch, especially if veteran wideout Greg Jennings gets hurt. E.J. Manuel, QB, Buffalo - When the Bills drafted Manuel 16th overall out of Florida State, it appeared to be a bit of a reach on an undeniably-talented, but not necessarily high-end prospect. However, Manuel completed two-thirds of his passes in college, passing for 41 touchdowns over his last two seasons with the Seminoles and going to the Bills presents an opportunity. The plan figured to be to have veteran Kevin Kolb and Manuel compete for the starting job, maybe giving Kolb the early action until Manuel was ready to take over. With Kolb suffering a knee injury in camp, Manuel started the Bills first preseason game, completing 16-of-21 passes for 107 yards and one touchdown. Thats a lot of short passing, and the ground game is likely to be Buffalos relative strength offensively, but Manuel could win a starting job. Tyler Eifert, TE, Cincinnati - Having accumulated 113 receptions over his last two seasons at Notre Dame, Eifert may be over-qualified to be the Bengals No. 2 tight end, which is where he figures to fit with Jermaine Gresham already on the roster. The Bengals will likely use more double tight-end sets to take advantage of their first-round picks skills, but Eifert may not get enough looks to be a featured performer as a rookie. Keenan Allen, WR, San Diego - Drafted in the third round out of Cal, Allen stands to benefit from injuries to the Chargers receiving corps. With Danario Alexander out for the season and Malcom Floyd out at least until Week One of the regular season, Allen has the opportunity to earn trust and build a rapport with quarterback Philip Rivers. Robert Woods, WR, Buffalo - A second-round pick out of USC, Woods has a chance to start, or at least play a significant role at wide receiver for the Bills. Woods appeal is limited by the fact that the ground game may be Buffalos focus and the possibility that hell have a rookie quarterback, but hes worth having on the radar, particularly in the event of an injury to Stevie Johnson, the Bills top receiving threat. Markus Wheaton, WR, Pittsburgh - A speedster who ran track at Oregon State, Wheaton was a receiver who also carried the ball a couple of times per game for the Beavers, coming up with 1,386 yards from scrimmage and 13 touchdowns last season, leading to the Steelers drafting Wheaton in the third round. With Mike Wallace leaving for Miami, there is room for a new starter opposite Antonio Brown at wide receiver and fourth-year wideout Emmanuel Sanders appears to have the inside track on that job, but Wheaton could force his way into a more prominent role. Zach Ertz, TE, Philadelphia -A second-round pick out of Stanford, Ertz caught 69 passes for 898 yards and six touchdowns as a senior for the Cardinal and while veteran Brent Celek is at the top of the depth chart, if the Eagles are going to operate an up-tempo offence, Ertz can be a weapon in an Eagles passing game that could use more threats. Kenbrell Thompkins, WR, New England - An undrafted free agent out of Cincinnati, who didnt put up big numbers in college (1,077 yards, four touchdowns over his last two seasons), Thompkins has been an early revelation for the Patriots, who are looking for some players to step up in the passing game. Dobson may be more likely to have immediate success, but Thompkins is forcing his way into New Englands receiver discussion. Zach Sudfeld, TE, New England - It says something about the state of the Patriots offence that two undrafted rookies have a chance to produce. Sudfeld, a 6-foot-7 tight end out of Nevada is a late bloomer of sorts. He had two career catches and spent six years in college, due to two redshirt seasons, before breaking out as a senior with 45 catches for 598 yards and eight touchdowns. Obviously, there have been changes with the Patriots at tight end in the wake of Aaron Hernandezs release and Rob Gronkowskis offseason surgeries, but maybe Sudfeld has a chance to emerge as a first-year player. Whether he will have enough of a role to warrant taking ahead of more established fantasy options will likely be a matter to consider on the waiver wire early in the season.

TORONTO -- Rogers Cup fans got a glimpse of whats been touted as the next big thing in American tennis for some time. Adidas X_PLR Herre Sko Kører Hvid/Vintage Hvid BB1099 . Sloane Stephens debuted at the womens tournament Monday with a 6-2, 7-6(5) victory over Frances Kristina Mladenovic in the opening round. The world No. 17-ranked Stephens has been labelled the natural successor to Serena and Venus Williams in the American womens game. This year shes proving why, with a semifinal showing at the Australian Open and quarter-final appearance at Wimbledon. Stephens insists she doesnt let the hype affect her game. "Obviously most of the attention I get is pretty positive," said Stephens. "Its because people want to see me do well and Im American and thats awesome, but I mean theres a little downfall of that too. There is a lot of pressure ... and things like that. "You just have to deal with it and play hard and imagine what (Andy) Murray deals with in England and what Serena has dealt with for so many years. Its definitely tough but people have done it before." The 20-year-old Stephens battled back from down 5-3 in the second set to win the match in 90 minutes, 40 seconds. She looked strong from the first game as she broke Mladenovic twice to jump out to a 3-0 lead. The No. 39-ranked Frenchwoman tried to play aggressive by attacking the net, but Stephens blew a forehand by her to make it 4-0. "She comes in a lot and volleys really well," said Stephens. "I knew probably she was going to press a little and make me play more balls. But I tried to stay with it and hit a lot of angles and move her and it seemed to work." Mladenovic had a chance to break and make it 4-2 but returned the ball long, then wide before Stephens reversed momentum to win the game and pull ahead 5-1. Mladenovic appeared en route to forcing a third set with a 5-3 lead in the second, but Stephens won three straight games before closing out the match in a tiebreak. "She upped her game a lot in the second set," said Stephens. "Some nights its going to be up and down, but I thought I stayed pretty solid and got through it." Stephens will next face Germanys Mona Barthel, who advanced with a 6-7(3), 6-3, 7-6(1) win over Chinas Jie Zheng. Carol Zhao, meanwhile, became the first Canadian ousted from the tournaments main draw. The 18-year-old qualifier from nearby Richmond Hill, Ont., lost 6-1, 6-3 to Russias Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova. Zhao, making her first appearance in the Rogers Cup main draw, looked overpowered by the Russian in the first set but fought back for a 3-0 lead in the second. "I think I just tried to simplify my game plan (in the second set), and I think it rattled her a little bit," said Zhao. "I think the next step for me is trying to maintain that level of play for a longer period of time." Pavlyuchenkova rallied back to make it 4-3 before winning the match on serve. Shell meet four-seed Li Na of China in the second round. Zhao says the experience of playing her first Rogers Cup will be a lasting memory. "I think there is nothing really like coming to play the Rogers Cup. This is a tournament I grew up watching," said Zhao. "Getting an opportunity to play in the main draw is a dream come true." Most of the pre-tournament buzz has been around her fellow Canadian Eugenie Bouchard who lost in doubles on Monday with partner Kirsten Flipkens of Germany. The duo fell to Oksana Kalashnikova and Alicja Rosolska 4-6, 6-3, 10-7. Bouchard, a Westmount, Que., native who is the main draw on a wild card, will play her first singles match on Tuesday night against Russias Alisa Kleybanova. Bouchard turned heads at Wimbledon this year when she advanced to the third round with victory over former No. 1 Ana Ivanovic. Flavia Pennetta and Yanina Wickmayer were among the early winners in Mondays opening round. Pennetta of Italy became the first player through to the second round after she eliminated Urszula Radwanska 6-3, 3-6, 6-2, while Belgiums Wickmayer ousted American Bethanie Mattek-Sands 6-4, 2-6, 6-4. Mattek-Sands was called upon shortly before the match after Britains Laura Robson pulled out with a right wrist injury. Known for her eye-catching fashion sense, Mattek-Sands sported black socks and wrist bands with a streak of green in her blonde hair. The world No. 32-ranked Robson -- set to make her Rogers Cup debut -- joins a list of injured players who withdrew from the tournament, including top-5 seeds Maria Sharapova and Victoria Azarenka. Robson was coming off a strong performance at Wimbledon where she reached the fourth round -- the first British woman to do it since 1998. In other early results Monday, Dominika Cibulkova knocked off fellow Slovakian Jana Cepelova 7-5, 6-4; Romanias Sorana Cirstea moved on with a 6-2, 6-3 win over Ukrainian qualifier Olga Savchuk; 10-seed Roberta Vinci of Italy beat Germanys Julia Goerges 2-6, 6-4, 6-3; Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands defeated American Alison Riske 6-4, 1-6, 6-3; Varvara Lepchenko of the U.S. won 6-3, 6-1 over Ayumi Morita of Japan; and Klara Zakopalova was a 5-7, 6-3, 6-1 winner over fellow Czech Lucie Safarova. Adidas Superstar Foundation Hvid .

Wenger takes his side to the Boleyn Ground on Saturday for the final time ahead of West Hams switch to the Olympic Stadium this summer.The Frenchman oversaw Arsenals move from Highbury to the Emirates Stadium 10 years ago, a switch which tested the clubs resources.

OSKALOOSA, Iowa -- Three-time NASCAR champion Tony Stewart will miss this weekends road course race at Watkins Glen after breaking his right leg in a sprint car race Monday night at Southern Iowa Speedway. Nike Tn Danmark . A spokesman for Stewart said the 42-year-old driver broke his right tibia and fibula and had surgery after he was transported to a local hospital. An update was expected Tuesday afternoon, and Stewart-Haas Racing did not immediately announce a replacement driver for Stewarts No. 14 Chevrolet at Watkins Glen, where Stewart is a five-time winner. The team did cancel its scheduled Tuesday test at Atlanta Motor Speedway. The sprint car accident came a day after Stewart finished ninth in the NASCAR race at Pocono Raceway. Hes 11th in the Sprint Cup standings with five races to go until the Chase for the championship field is set. Stewart was leading the 30-lap feature in a 360 winged sprint car with five laps remaining when a lapped car spun in Turn 4 and collected Stewart and two others. Race winner Brian Brown told the Des Moines Register he saw the accident in front of him, turned left, hit an infield tire and kept going. "It looked like he got into a lapped car," Brown told The Register. "When I got close, he was flipping cage down. I didnt really have time to watch and see what was going on. "First and foremost, were concerned about Tony and making sure hes all right. Hes a huge asset to our sport, especially sprint car racing and an icon in the whole motorsports field. Anytime you see him wreck like that and then leave in an ambulance, its never good. Hopefully hes OK. We werent going to win that race. We were probably going to run third or fourth." NASCAR Nationwide Series regular Kyle Larson finished second, telling The Register he ducked through the infield to miss the wreck. Its the third time Stewart has wrecked in the last month while competing in extracurricular races. Stewart took responsibility for triggering a roughly 10-car accident at Canandaigua (N.Y.) Motorsports Park on July 16 in which 19-year-old Alysha Ruggles suffered a broken vertebra in her back. Last Monday, in a sprint car race at Ohsweken Speedway in Ontario, Stewart rolled his car five times but walked away. He stayed at the track to compete in the World of Outlaws race the next night and bristled at the NASCAR event at Pocono Raceway last weekend when asked about his harrowing incident in Canada. "You mortals have got to learn, you guys need to watch more sprint car videos and stuff," he said Friday at Pocono. "It was not a big deal. Its starting to get annoying this week about that. That was just an average sprint car wreck. When they wreck, they get upside down like that." Stewart gave an impassioned defence of sprint car racing in June following the death of good friend Jason Leffler, who was killed in an accident at Bridgeport Speedway in Swedesboro, N.J. "Id be grateful if you guys would understand that what happened this week wasnt because somebody didnt do something right with the race track. It was an accident. Just like if you go out and theres a car crash. Its an accident," Stewart said days after Lefflers death. "Nobody as a track owner wants to go through what happened, but its not due to a lack of effort on their part to try to make their facilities as safe as possible under the conditions they have." On Sunday, veteran sprint car driver Kramer Williamson died from injuries suffered during a qualifying race at Lincoln Speedway in central Pennsylvania. Williamson, 63, of Palmyra, was pronounced dead at York Hospital from serious injuries suffered in a crash that occurred Saturday night during the United Racing Company 358/360 Sprint Car Challenge. Nike Tn Sko Tilbud . Despite dominating possession, Schalke needed an own goal from Nicolas Hoefler for the breakthrough a minute before the interval. The Freiburg midfielder misjudged Jefferson Farfans corner and bundled the ball into his own net. Adidas Zx Flux Mænd . -- Stanford squashed Oregons national championship hopes again, schooling the Ducks in power football. http://www.nmdtilbud.com/adidas-nmd-runner.html . U.S. District Judge Lorna G. Schofield in Manhattan agreed that lawyers on both sides could make their formal requests by Nov. 8. A hearing is scheduled for a day earlier. Jordan Siev, a lawyer for Rodriguez, wrote in a joint letter to the judge from lawyers on both sides that MLB lawyers planned to ask that the lawsuit be dismissed. LOS ANGELES -- Fun returned to Pauley Pavilion in a big way with the college debuts of Lonzo Ball and T.J. Leaf.Those two were among four starters in double figures for No. 16 UCLA, which made a school-record 18 3-pointers in a 119-80 rout of Pacific in the teams season opener on Friday night.Ball just missed a triple-double with 19 points, 11 assists and eight rebounds, while Leaf had 22 points and a game-high 15 rebounds.Everything went well and Im proud of the day that we had, Ball said.Bryce Alford scored 30 points to lead the Bruins, making six 3-pointers. Aaron Holiday added 18 points, including four 3-pointers, and Isaac Hamilton had 17 points in UCLAs run-and-gun offense that proved entertaining for the announced crowd of 8,743.Its just an opener, but when you can have an opener like this that word of mouth spreads, Bruins coach Steve Alford said. We are an exciting team to watch and its worth coming out to see if you like us.Pacific was led by T.J. Wallace with 21 points despite foul trouble and Ray Bowles with 14 points. Former NBA player Damon Stoudamire lost his college coaching debut.UCLA is a good team, Wallace said. What happened tonight was self-inflicted; we just have to get back to the basics.The Tigers werent too shabby from 3-point range, either. They made 10 of 26, led by David Taylor, who made all three of his attempts.But Pacific couldnt defend the Bruins sharpshooters. They bettered the old record of 17 3-pointers set against Arizona on Jan. 19, 2002.We knew it was going to be a challenge, Stoudamire said. One team is trying to get better, the other is trying to win a national championship.UCLA opened the game by hitting four consecutive 3s, with Ball sandwiching a pair around two straight by Alford. Ball followed his second 3-pointer with a dunk off Hamiltons alley-oop pass.Later in the half, Ball dunked off Holidays assist after Hamilton stole the ball.It was pretty nice. I think it will probably be on `SportsCenter, Leaf said. With the ball he cant really jump at all, but with it he can get up.That ignited an especially potent offensive stretch for the Bruins. Holiday scored 10 in a row, making two 3-pointers to start.UCLA ended the first half on another 3-pointer by Holiday for a 63-39 lead.Pacific never got close in the second half, when the Bruins led by 34 points early. Ultra Boost 3.0 Danmark. UCLA opened the half with a 15-6 run that began with 3-pointers by Alford and Hamilton. Leaf scored off Balls alley-oop pass and then Leaf completed a three-point play.BIG PICTUREPacific: The Tigers have more ranked teams in their future. They play No. 14 Gonzaga on Dec. 31 and No. 17 Saint Marys on Feb. 2 before facing those opponents later in the season on the road.UCLA: The Bruins return 94.5 percent of their made 3-pointers, led by Alford, Holiday and Hamilton, who combined to hit 172 last season. Ball and Leaf will only add to the long-range threat.BALL MOVEMENTThe Bruins had 29 assists, with Hamilton dishing out eight and Holiday five. They kept the ball zipping around with no one afraid of making an extra pass.Thats the way our game should be played. Thats beautiful basketball, the elder Alford said.KENNYS KIDPacific freshman guard K.J. Smith is the son of former NBA guard and current TNT analyst Kenny The Jet Smith. The younger Smith went 0 for 3 -- all on 3-point attempts -- and missed his only free throw attempt in nine minutes.TRIPLE DIGITSThe Bruins hadnt scored that many points since beating Montana State 113-78 in the 2014-15 season opener. It was their most points since beating Cal State Fullerton 120-91 on Dec. 13, 1997, under Steve Lavin. They never topped triple digits last season.INJUREDUCLA sophomore forward Alex Olesinski missed the game with a strained foot. He has worn a boot for two days and is questionable for Sundays game. Were hoping its short-lived, the elder Alford said. Got to let it calm down.POLL IMPLICATIONSThe elder Alford pointed out UCLA is the only team in the Top 25 that had a losing record (15-17) last season.

He returned to score a team-high 28 points in the 114-109 victory in New York, the Jazzs first stop on a five-game road trip.I thought I didnt shoot the ball very well, Hayward told NBA.com. I honestly didnt think I played very well.Hayward missed 11 of 17 shots from the floor while playing 35 minutes.I wanted to keep my legs -- a lot of it was for my legs, my footwork, Hayward said.

Cavaliers guard Iman Shumpert recovered it at the buzzer.I got fouled, they didnt call it and thats the end of the game, Henderson told CSNPhilly.com after the game. I think J.R. was guarding me. Somebodys hand came and it wasnt a lot of ball. I know he hit my arm or my wrist or my hand or whatever it was, and you know, the games over. But theres a lot of things you can do before then so it doesnt come down to that. But refs didnt make the call and we lose the game. Thats the way it goes.Rookie center Joel Embiid made all four of his 3-point attempts while scoring 22 points for Philadelphia.

LINCOLN, Neb. Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping . -- Bring on Oregon.Nebraska tuned up for the No. 24 Ducks with a 52-17 victory over Wyoming, which trailed by seven points late in the third quarter but saw the game get out of control because of Josh Allens six turnovers, all in the second half Saturday.Now a Nebraska program trying to regain national relevance can turn its full attention to one of the most anticipated games in Lincoln in years.Oregon, theyre no joke, said Jordan Westerkamp, who caught two of Tommy Armstrong Jr.s three touchdown passes and had 105 yards on four receptions. Theyre a top program in the entire nation. This will be our first big test. We have to take them extremely serious and have a great week of practice because theyre going to come ready to play.If we can get a win against Oregon, thatll be huge for our program. On a national level, just beating a team like that should propel us forward in a lot of peoples minds.Nebraska (2-0), which ran on 51 of 64 plays in last weeks 43-10 win over Fresno State, relied on the pass against Wyoming (1-1). Armstrong was 20 of 34 for 377 yards, and the Huskers finished with 412 yards through the air after backup Ryker Fyfe played the last two series.Armstrong set the school career record for touchdown passes, with his 57th coming on a 9-yard pass to Westerkamp in the fourth quarter. The fourth-year starting QB was presented the game ball in the locker room for his accomplishment.I couldnt do it without those guys, Armstrong said. They did a great job making plays -- a bunch of catches and yards after contact. We have a lot of season left, and Im excited about those guys out wide.Six of Wyomings last seven second-half possessions ended with turnovers -- five interceptions and a bad lateral by Allen that was counted as a fumble -- and the Huskers scored 28 points in the fourth quarter.There was a tipping point in the game, and sometimes they get away from you. That one did, Cowboys coach Craig Bohl said. I dont know where the exact tipping point was, but it was after one of those interceptions. The score started getting tough.Kieron Williams ran back an interception 23 yards for a touchdown, and Nate Gerry picked off two passes.I think its great to be 2-0 going into this game, Nebraska coach Mike Riley said. The more you win, the more exciting the next game gets. This one, being who they are and what they mean nationally and where we want to go, this is exciting.THE TAKEAWAYWYOMING: The Cowboys hung with the Huskers for three quarters, but there was no way Wyoming was going to survive six turnovers -- all in the second half. Allen did show flashes, like when he rolled right and threw a perfect strike on a 35-yard pass to Gentry for touchdown on a fourth-and-12 late in the first half.NEBRASKA: The Huskers put up some big offensive numbers, but they struggled again with personal fouls and other penalties, which could come back to bite them against better opponents. The defense shut down Wyoming star running back Brian Hill -- good preparation for Oregons Royce Freeman next week.KEY NUMBERSWYOMING: Gentry had seven catches for 124 yards with one touchdown and now has five career 100-yard games, including two straight.NEBRASKA: Alonzo Moore had three catches for a career-high 109 yards, including a 63-yard touchdown. The Huskers five interceptions were the most since they picked off five passes against Idaho in 2010.UP NEXTWYOMING: The Cowboys return home to play UC Davis of the FCS Big Sky Conference for the first time. The teams have a one-game contract, with Wyoming paying a $400,000 guarantee.NEBRASKA: The Huskers game against Oregon is especially meaningful to Riley, the former Oregon State coach who was 4-10 against the Ducks with his usually-outmanned Beaver teams (1997-98, 2003-14).LAST WORDWe went into the fourth quarter down seven. It was within reach. It just didnt happen... Everyones hurting. Im hurting. I take this one completely on myself. I didnt put our team in a position to win, Allen said. Cheap NFL Jerseys Stitched ., for the next three years with the signings on Monday of Daryl Townsend and Michael Carter. Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap . -- Canadian Andrew Wiggins got the ball on the wing, made a nifty spin move and then let go with a soft floater from about 10 feet that swished through the net in Allen Fieldhouse. http://www.authenticcheapnfljerseyschina.com/ .
