Warriors Teammate Praises Steph Curry and Draymond Green’s Hall of Fame IQ
By admin | | 0 Comments |

After a bumpy start to the 2020-21 NBA season, the Golden State Warriors are getting back in form. They made several changes to their roster in the offseason and it took some time for the players to settle in. But with the All-Star break almost here, the Dubs are looking consistent. The credit for their newfound success goes to none other than their veteran duo of Steph Curry and Draymond Green. Recently, the two stars flaunted their skills against the Cavaliers in a comfortable 129-98 victory. Curry continued his hot scoring streak with 36 points against the Cavs. On the other hand, Green handled the facilitating duties for the team as he finished the game with 16 assists. The two stars have shouldered the burden for the team in the absence of Klay Thompson. But can the Warriors go all the way and win another championship? We will find out in the coming months. Steph Curry and Draymond Green: The two pillars for the Golden State Warriors Golden State Warriors forward Kent Bazemore (26) and forward Juan Toscano-Anderson (95) and guard Stephen Curry (30) and forward Draymond Green (23) during the game between the Dallas Mavericks and the Golden State Warriors at the American Airlines Center. Mandatory Credit: Jerome Miron-USA TODAY SportsFollowing this sensational victory, Juan Toscano-Anderson gave an interesting post-game interview. He said: “I am a beneficiary of these guys, their hall of fame IQ. You know Draymond [Green] had 16 assists today and that’s amazing from our starting center. Last five games, he’s in double digits assists. … Either Steph [Curry] is open or Imma be open. “I’m aware that the defense ain’t gonna leave him so I just find those gaps and get those easy buckets. I know Draymond sees everything. Sometimes he sees it a little too quick before any of us see it, but it’s great to play with a guy like that.” Draymond Green has always been an amazing playmaker for the Dubs. Even during their stretch of dominance in the mid 2010s, he took on the role of a facilitator for their championship teams. This season, he is elevating his game further in that department.

After trade demands, Vic Manuel to stay with Alaska
By admin | | 0 Comments |

Alaska big man Vic Manuel is staying with the Aces. INQUIRER FILE PHOTO MANILA, Philippines—Vic Manuel’s offseason saga is finally over and the big man has decided that he will be staying put in Alaska. As per the PBA’s official website, Manuel is set to sign a new contract with the Aces ending a month-long debacle that saw the power forward flirt with joining other clubs. Danny Espiritu, Manuel’s agent, said that only Manuel’s signature is needed to finalize the deal. “We are almost done on a (new) contract for Vic,” said Espiritu Wednesday. “In a matter of days, maybe next week, we will sign the deal.” Espiritu did not expound on the deal but the report said that Manuel is expected to sign a max contract of P420,000 per month excluding bonuses. Those terms ultimately made Manuel decide to stay with the Aces after his previous contract expired in December of 2020. The Aces initially offered Manuel a two-year contract but the 33-year-old wanted a three-year deal. This standoff was what led to Manuel holding out on a signing a new contract but head coach Jeffrey Cariaso intervened, going on a lengthy conversation with his star forward and promising to build the Aces around him. It was during this time that Manuel bared he wanted to play for either San Miguel, Phoenix, and NLEX. Read Next Don't miss out on the latest news and information.

‘Lit the Fire Under Me’: Warriors’ Steph Curry Reveals How Tiger Woods Helped Him Win First NBA Championship
By admin | | 0 Comments |

The Golden State Warriors superstar Steph Curry isn’t just the greatest basketball player, but also an avid golfer. He has previously participated in a lot of golfing events, and if there is anything he is more passionate about than basketball, it’s golf. In fact, Golf plays a bigger role in his life and career than anyone can imagine. If it wasn’t for Tiger Woods, it’s possible that the Golden State Warriors would have never won 3 of their championships and it all started with the 2015 Playoffs. Tiger had a hand in Steph Curry winning his first title Would anyone believe it if somebody said that it was Tiger Woods who motivated Steph Curry when they were about to lose to Memphis Grizzlies? And which eventually led to Steph’s stellar performance that got them out of that rut. In the 2nd round of the Playoffs in 2015, it looked like the Memphis Grizzlies were going to eliminate the Golden State Warriors from the title run. They were up by 2-1 and that’s when Tiger called him and gave him the motivational speech. “We’ve talked a couple times. He actually called me out of the blue back in 2015 during our playoff run—in the second round against [the] Memphis [Grizzlies]. “We were down [two games to one] and my PR director for the Warriors said, ‘Hey if this Florida number calls, you might want to answer it.’ I was like, ‘All right.’ “[Tiger] called me about an hour later and it was the biggest pep talk of all time—just out of the blue. He spoke some life into our comeback during that round. I said, ‘I’m ready for it. I know we’re gonna get it done.’ “And he dropped the mic at the end of the call, he was like, ‘Prove it,’ and then just hung up. It don’t get no better than that. He lit the fire under me for sure,” he narrated. Curry needed this to drop 33 points, 8 rebounds, and 5 assists in game 4. This helped them tie the series which they eventually won, and paved their way to the first of many titles that followed. Why would he choose Tiger Woods? Well, Woods is the ‘GOAT’ when it comes to the golf links. So, why would one superstar not want to play against another? However, there is a lot more to why Stephen Curry would choose Woods. On the ‘Huddle & Flow’ Podcast, he was also asked whom he would pick to play golf with and why. “Tiger, for sure,” Curry exclaimed. “He’s obviously been kind of a hero of mine growing up and to know all he’s been through over the course of his career, all the highs and lows. Jan 1, 2021; San Francisco, California, USA; Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry (30) brings the ball up the court against the Portland Trail Blazers in the first quarter at the Chase Center. Mandatory Credit: Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports“I feel like that would be amazing four-five hours out there to kind of hear his story from his lens. And to see him hit amazing golf shots all day. That would be my guy.” It is surprising that the two haven’t actually played together yet. But when that does happen, it won’t be something anybody would want to miss out on.

NBA says all teams must play national anthem before games
By admin | | 0 Comments |

FILE PHOTO: Members of the Dallas Mavericks and Phoenix Suns take a knee before the start of an NBA basketball game Thursday, Aug. 13, 2020 in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. Ashley Landis/Pool Photo-USA TODAY Sports/File Photo Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban’s plan not to play “The Star-Spangled Banner” before home games may be short-lived as the NBA said on Wednesday all teams must play the national anthem prior to tipoff. The Mavericks, who on Monday had a limited number of fans in their arena for the first time this season, have not played the national anthem prior to any of their 11 home games this season. “With NBA teams now in the process of welcoming fans back into their arenas, all teams will play the national anthem in keeping with longstanding league policy,” Mike Bass, the NBA’s chief communications officer, said in a statement. Cuban, in reaction to the NBA statement, said the Mavericks respect and always have respected the passion people have for the anthem and the United States. “I have always stood for the anthem with the hand over my heart – no matter where I hear it played,” Cuban said in a statement. “But we also hear the voices of those who do not feel the anthem represents them. We feel they also need to be respected and heard, because they have not been heard. “The hope is that those who feel passionate about the anthem being played will be just as passionate in listening to those who do not feel it represents them.” Colin Kaepernick sparked national debate when he protested against racial injustice by kneeling during the national anthem in 2016 while a quarterback for the NFL’s San Francisco 49ers. The act of kneeling during the national anthem had all but disappeared from sport, but returned last year following the death of George Floyd, which sparked protests across the United States over police brutality. Players who competed in the postseason held on a restricted campus at Disney World last year knelt for the anthem while the NBA incorporated messaging on the court in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. Last June, during an interview on ESPN’s Outside the Lines, Cuban expressed support for NBA players kneeling during the national anthem as a form of protest.

Liberty Trade Top Scorer but Add the All-Star Natasha Howard
By admin | | 0 Comments |

The Liberty traded away the top pick in this year’s draft and Kia Nurse, their top scorer last season, as part of a flurry of deals across the W.N.B.A. on Wednesday that also brought the All-Star Natasha Howard to New York.The Liberty acquired Howard as part of a three-team deal with the Seattle Storm and the Phoenix Mercury. Howard, a three-time W.N.B.A. champion, provides a solid interior player for the Liberty to pair with last season’s No. 1 overall draft pick, Sabrina Ionescu. As a designated core player for Seattle, Howard had to approve the trade.The Liberty also sent the No. 1 pick in the draft this year and the Mercury’s 2022 first-round pick to the Storm. The Liberty acquired that pick from Phoenix by sending Nurse and Megan Walker to the Mercury for the sixth pick this year and their first-round choice next year.The No. 1 pick didn’t stay in Seattle long, as the Storm traded it to Dallas for Katie Lou Samuelson and the Wings’ second-round pick in 2022. The Wings become the first team in W.N.B.A. history to hold the first and second overall picks in the same draft. In addition, Dallas also holds the fifth, seventh and 13th selections in 2021.“The opportunity to acquire the top pick in a draft does not present itself very often,” said Greg Bibb, the Wings’ president and chief executive. “By securing this pick, we will ensure our ability to draft the player at the top of our draft list while having additional draft assets at our disposal to further improve our team.”It’s only the third time in the league’s history that the top pick in the draft has been traded. On draft night in 2007, Phoenix traded the No. 1 pick to the Minnesota Lynx. Three years later, the Lynx sent the top pick to Connecticut in a deal for Lindsay Whalen, who is from Minnesota.There is a lot of uncertainty about who will be available to be picked in this year’s draft. The N.C.A.A. granted every player an extra year of eligibility, meaning top seniors like Dana Evans of Louisville and Michaela Onyenwere of U.C.L.A. could return to college next year.Also on Wednesday, in a separate trade with Seattle, the Liberty got guard Sami Whitcomb for the rights to Stephanie Talbot.“We have the privilege of welcoming multiple-time W.N.B.A. champions Natasha Howard and Sami Whitcomb to Brooklyn,” Liberty General Manager Jonathan Kolb said. “The magnitude of Natasha choosing to be in New York cannot be overstated. She is an All-W.N.B.A. talent who has worked for and earned everything that she has achieved, who has contributed to championship runs on multiple teams, and who will fit seamlessly into Walt Hopkins’ system.”Howard won the league’s Defensive Player of the Year Award in 2019. The 29-year-old forward won one title in Minnesota, in 2017, and two titles in Seattle, in 2018 and last season.“I am very excited to be a part of the New York Liberty organization,” Howard said. “I’m also excited to meet my new teammates and the fans. I’m so pumped about the 2021 season.”Howard averaged 9.5 points and 7.1 rebounds last season while shooting 53 percent from the field.Whitcomb was a key member of the Storm’s franchise the last few years. The 32-year-old is a solid 3-pointer shooter.Nurse, the Liberty’s 10th overall selection in the 2018 draft, averaged 11.6 points, 2.6 rebounds and 2 assists per game over 89 contests (59 starts) during her three-year tenure. She led the team in scoring last season with 12.2 points per game.The Liberty drafted Walker ninth overall last season, and she averaged 3.3 points and 1.5 rebounds while playing in 18 games.“I would like to thank Kia Nurse and Megan Walker for their contributions to our organization,” Kolb added. “The unfortunate part of transactions such as these is that you have to say goodbye to people who have contributed to the team in so many ways. ”Finally, the Lynx traded forward Mikiah Herbert Harrigan to the Storm for the 2022 first-round pick they had acquired from Phoenix through the Liberty.
