The world was watching when Westbrook’s Thunder and Durant’s Warriors met for the first time on Nov. 4. The hype was out of control for this game and Westbrook took it to another level when he showed up at Oracle Arena wearing a pinny that said “Official Photographer”.
This was immediately perceived as another subtle shot at Kevin Durant, who enjoys taking photographs in his free time:
The guile, the explosion, self-assuredness, it’s all here. In a season full of brilliant Russ moments, this might be the best one.
NFL Network’s Mike Silver reported that Lynch and the Seahawks had reached a deal. Ian Rapoport would clarify that the two sides had reached an agreement, but that the Seahawks still held his rights. Rapoport added that it was expected a deal would get done.
Later in the early evening, ProFootballTalk’s Mike Florio indicated that the two sides may not have been close after all.
Cleveland is sitting on two first-rounders that line up well with what could help the team most, starting with Texas A&M pass rusher Myles Garrett from the top. The Browns can’t Cheap Miami Dolphins Jerseys afford to wait too long before they address quarterback.
San Francisco has its backup quarterbacks in place, but it could use dynamic athletes on both fronts before thinking about taking its franchise passer. GM John Lynch will Cheap Jerseys In China also look for a hammer at his old position in the secondary.
Not too long ago, DeShone Kizer was considered one of the top three quarterbacks in the upcoming NFL Draft, along with Mitchell Trubisky and Deshaun Watson. Now, however, some negative comments have surfaced about Kizer with the draft just weeks away.
The latest commentary came from MMQB’s Albert Breer, who spoke with an unidentified NFL head coach. The coach, who is in the AFC, had some interesting things to say about Kizer.
The Rams released Laurinaitis following the 2015 season as the team parted ways with several veterans before the team moved from St. Louis to Los Angeles. Laurinaitis signed with the Saints, but played in only five games before a quadriceps injury ended his season. He was placed on injured reserve last Nov. 5 and released by the Saints on Nov. 17.
The son of former WWE wrestler Joe Laurinaitis, who was “Animal” of the famous Road Warriors tag team, Laurinaitis said he is “really looking forward to transitioning into what’s next with my beautiful wife and daughters.”
Reddick is a freakish athlete who shined at the Senior Bowl Blue Jays Cheap Jerseys and NFL Combine. A natural pass-rusher with a great burst off the snap, he shown the ability to cover in space, making him versatile as a possible 3-4 linebacker. Reddick can stack the line at the point of attack and also blitz from depth. He had 65 tackles last season with 22 1/2 tackles for loss and 10 1/2 sacks to earn first-team All-AAC honors.
Jones — the most complete and accomplished receiver in the draft — is a perfect fit for the Chiefs and what Andy Reid wants in a receiver. He has ideal height and weight at 6-2, 201 and his stock soared after he ran a 4.45 40 at the combine. That was after he was the best receiver at the Senior Bowl. Jones caught 158 passes for 1,746 yards and eight touchdowns last year to set the NCAA single-season record for receptions. He also finished his career as the NCAA’s all-time leading receiver with 399 catches Cheap Authentic Hockey Jerseys for 4,279 yards and 23 scores.
Analysis: We’ve never given out a top mock GM award, but if I did it might be Brandon Lee Gowton of Bleeding Green Nation, who got Reuben Foster and Marlon Humphrey for the Baseball Jerseys For Sale Eagles. Reed would come in second for his picks of Jones and Alabama defensive lineman Jonathan Allen. The values are obviously good, but there are risks with both.
Taking Jones and Allen makes this a swing-for-the-fences draft for the Colts. These two picks truly represent boom or bust. If they boom, Allen is a top-five overall player and Jones plays as good or better than any cornerback in the draft this year. If it’s a bust, Allen’s shoulder issues are real and Jones is slow to recover from an Achilles tear. It’s quite a gamble to take two players with injury questions in the top two rounds.
If Jones can come back healthy, he’s exactly the type of cornerback the Colts need. He’s comfortable playing man and dropping into zone coverage, and he has good hands for the position.
Some of the best young basketball players in the world were on display in Portland on Friday night at the 2017 Nike Hoops Summit. The United States outlasted the World team 98-87 to win the game for the third time in the last four years.
The biggest star on the American team was Missouri commit Michael Porter Jr., and he showed why he’s the No. 1 recruit in the country. Porter finished with 19 points and flashed his ability to score from all three levels.
Tony Romo’s departure from the Dallas Cowboys finally became official today. The team released a statement, and CBS formally introduced him as its new lead NFL game analyst alongside Jim Nantz.
Romo took the reins as quarterback of the Cowboys in 2006 and was replaced by rookie Dak Prescott prior to the start of the 2016 season. Through the ups and downs, Romo had a good tenure in Dallas, which ended by helping Prescott grow.
Jusuf Nurkic caught headlines for helping Portland turn things around, and deservedly so — the center traded to the Blazers at the deadline provided a huge impact. But Lillard is the heart on this team. Since the All-Star break, Lillard is averaging a blistering 28.4 points on 46-percent shooting from the field and nearly 40 percent on threes along with six assists — all improvements over his pre-All-Star break numbers.
Lillard dropped his 59 points in the same ways we’re used to — pull-up threes with defenders in his face, layups thrown up over defenders that just flies over their outstretched hands. He’s one of 11 players with 50 point games this season, a new NBA record, but the important thing is how Lillard is Cheap Flag Football Jerseys doing this right when Portland needed it from him.
Kevin Durant made his return from injury in the third-to-last Cheap Elite Nike NFL Jerseys regular season game for Golden State, recording 16 points, 10 rebounds and six assists in 30 minutes. His first bucket came on the game’s opening possession, when he drove baseline for a reverse dunk, although he only shot 6-of-15 for the game. Obviously, Durant’s return is huge for the Warriors, even though his absence hasn’t affected Golden State with 14 straight wins now.
Following a backlash from coaches and the players’ union, the NFL has cracked down on the leaping play at the league owners meetings this week. The act of leaping the line of scrimmage on field goals and extra points is now banned, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
The leaping play became a major talking point last season, when Seattle Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner jumped the line to block a field goal attempt from Arizona Cardinals kicker Chandler Catanzaro. His fellow teammate, safety Kam Chancellor, has also been well-known for his leaping abilities.
After that game ended in a 6-6 tie, Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians came down Cheap Kids NBA Jerseys hard against the leap, calling it bullshit and bad for football. Arians’ main concern is safety for the center, who must keep his head down before snapping the ball and likely won’t see a defender leaping over him.
Because what you’re going to have to do now is start having centers raise their face up and get kicked in the face and things that are just dangerous to the players, Arians said. I think it’s a dangerous play as it is and should be taken out of the game.
For the first time in what seems like months, the Packers made it through a week without Cheap Lakers Jerseys any major injuries. Though Scott Tolzien has played decently over the past two games, his three picks in Sunday’s loss to the Giants proved that the Packers have little chance of climbing back into the playoff race until Aaron Rodgers returns from his fractured collarbone. Rodgers said last week he hopes to be on the field against the Vikings in Week 12, but we’ll have to wait until later in the week to learn his status.
After a rough first half, Robert Griffin III found his rhythm in the fourth quarter, but the Redskins’ comeback fell just short as the Eagles won, 24-16, and effectively killed Washington’s push for the playoffs.
Sander Philipse of Bucs Nation is thrilled to see a comfortable win over a divisional opponent:
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have their second win of the season, and this time we can call it “dominant.” This game had everything for the Bucs: a running back with three touchdowns and well over 150 yards on the ground.
I’m done, folks. I can’t do this anymore. I want to, but I can’t. I never imagined in my wildest dreams that the Falcons would be this terrible. Like I said before, the only way to make this stop is to stop watching. And right now, that’s what I have to do. Feel free to discuss it in the comments. I’ll be around.
The Falcons will host the Saints on Thursday Night Football in Week 12, while the Buccaneers will travel to Detroit to take on the Lions.
At the start of the season, there were debates about whether Trojans wide receiver Marqise Lee or Clemson’s Sammy Watkins was the top player at the position. Because of injury, Lee is no longer in the discussion. “He has the skills to dominate, so he needs to show big-play potential in every game, and also make the routine plays,” an anonymous scout told Breer. It’s the routine part that should make people cause. Even when Lee’s been healthy this season, he hasn’t made an Cheap Jerseys NFL Wholesale unspectacular play spectacular. We haven’t seen the extra gear he had last season. Now you wonder if Lee is behind Cheap Jerseys Outlet Shop receivers like Mike Evans of Texas A&M, Brandin Cooks of Oregon State and others.
The most important song in sports is not what you might think. It is not Take Me Out to the Ball Game. It is not We Are the Champions. No, it is not even Sandstorm by Darude.
It’s All Star, by Smash Mouth. There are All Stars in every sport. The lyrics, Getcha game on, go play can be applied in any sports situation. This song needs our respect.
This is why I took it upon myself to bring to you the best version of the best sports song that can be found on the internet. You see, All Star is actually a meme.
Though the proposal was withdrawn, it still left us with one of the greatest, and simplest, reform explanations of all time. Here’s something sort of ridiculous: Someone has compared Michigan State cornerback Darqueze Dennard to Deion Sanders. Further ridiculousness: It’s part of a 77-page report about Dennard. That is not a typo. It should be noted that the writer is the legendary Dave-Te’ Thomas, who provides scouting analysis to NFL teams and media members (how much either use Baseball Jerseys it, you got me). But comparing any cornerback to Deion Sanders is like comparing your little sister’s piano play to Mozart.
Instead, these garish uniforms will have the opportunity to be widely mocked on Twitter for at least one more season. Though the dehydrated fisherman’s urine color of last year’s Jaguars jerseys is more than enough to justify the program’s demise, it’s worth noting not all the color rush uniforms are as messy.
For teams like the Patriots and Titans, another year of solid-color kits won’t be too tough to swallow. Washington, however, felt differently. Management there will have to suffer through at least one more season of Cheap MLB Jerseys Free Shipping color rush uniforms before it can bring the issue up before the league’s owners again in 2018.
