Golden State Warriors Bank on Andre Iguodala Not Dwight

The Golden State Warriors were partially in the running to recruit NBA player Dwight Howard, but at the end of the day they acquired the guy they really wanted on Friday. The organization is preparing to sign free-agent swingman Andre Iguodala.While waiting for Howard to make his decision, the Warriors put all their chips into pursuing Iguodala. According to sources, they made cap room by getting rid of three reserve players, a few draft picks and severed ties with two key players from last season, so they could sign Iguodala to a four-year, $48-million contract.The 29-year-old averaged 13 points, 5.3 rebounds and 5.4 assists last season with Denver. Iguodala said that he’s happy with the signing because the Warriors were at the top of his list.“I feel like they have a good culture there,” Iguodala said. “A lot of great guys, great locker room. The way they’ve got those guys playing with such confidence, that comes from the coach. The way those young guys were playing against us (in the playoffs), that’s confidence. I want to play with that kind of confidence.” read more

Beside The Points For Thursday March 8 2018

See more NBA predictions All newsletters Oh, and don’t forgetKHL is acting shady We’re launching a sports newsletter. 🏆  Join the squad. Subscribe Things That Caught My EyeAn out-of-line interview questionLSU running back Derrius Guice said that a representative of an NFL team asked him if he was gay during an interview at the NFL combine. This is not the first time that an NFL team has gotten in hot water over inappropriate and prohibited questions about potential draft stars’ sexuality, and the NFL Players Association wants the team in question prohibited from attending the combine. [The Washington Post]Neymar edges out MessiNeymar has an expected goals and assists rate of 1.18 per 90 minutes, which is the best performance in that stat in any of the top European soccer leagues right now, just beating out even Lionel Messi. Right now, comparing Neymar’s season to any other player besides Messi isn’t really possible; there are only ten player-seasons since 2010 where players had more than 0.9 expected goals plus expected assists per 90 minutes, and more than five progressive passes and runs per 90. Angel Di Maria’s 2015-16 is one of them, Neymar’s is another, and Messi accounts for the other eight. [FiveThirtyEight]Try out our interactive, Which World Cup Team Should You Root For?Damian Lillard taking Portland to the postseasonDamien Lillard is creating 101 points for every 100 chances running the pick-and-roll. He’s hitting 103 points per 100 chances on drives. Portland certainly has a defense, but it’s also not an obvious one — they don’t force many turnovers or limit free throws or block all that many shots. Yet, they rank seventh in defensive rating this season. [FiveThirtyEight]Stallings out in PittsburghBasketball coach Kevin Stallings is out at Pittsburgh after just two seasons. His record: 24-41. The Panthers were 0-19 in ACC games, and I’m not a particularly adamant college basketball fan but even I know it’s vastly preferable not to lose every single one of those. [ESPN]POLL: Florida badAn NHL players’ association poll asked the league’s players to weigh in on coaching, the point system, their colleagues and who they’d want on their side if they needed to win a game. More importantly, the survey identified the Florida Panthers as having the worst ice in the NHL — 16.8 percent of respondents said the Panthers have the worst rink. [ESPN]Big Number659.5 milesThat’s how far away New York City, where the Big Ten Conference plays its conference tournament, is from Knox, Indiana, the town that is actually the geographic center of the conference. Realistically, Knox’s neighbor Chicago, only 65 miles from the geographic center, would be a better call than Madison Square Garden. Indeed, the ACC’s tournament in Brooklyn and the Big East’s call of New York is also a bit off too. [FiveThirtyEight]Leaks from Slack: neil:LSU RB: At combine I was asked ‘do I like men’I am amazed that teams haven’t been reprimanded for these kinds of garbage questionsThis has been going on for yearsand they continue to get away with itMiami GM sorry for Bryant prostitute queryFalcons asked Ohio State CB Eli Apple if he likes menidk how it works exactly in the context of a collectively bargained process like the NFL, but many combine interview questions appear to violate fair hiring laws(the combine itself is probably also sketchy, although again idk how that was bargained with the union)Predictions NBA read more

Connolly speaks says termination bombshell dropped on her this morning

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppTurks and Caicos, June 16, 2017 – Providenciales – Josephine Connolly says that she is stunned by the move of the Premier and confirmed to us, just moments ago, that she was indeed fired by Sharlene Robinson and that she found out in a meeting with the Premier only this morning.Connolly says this move is in violation of the PDM Constitution which would have required that a formal complaint was lodged and that she would have had a chance to answer to that complaint.While Connolly, who was the second most popular At Large elected member in the recent 2016 General Election, admitted that there was an NGC Meeting of the People’s Democratic Movement last Friday night where there was talk of the rumors and a call to respect party leadership, she says nothing was said to her directly.A meeting had been requested of the Premier by the now former Education Minister, she explained in a phone interview, but that meeting was not granted until today when she learned that since yesterday her position in Cabinet had been revoked.  Connolly says a press release for her to explain her side is coming.Josephine Connolly also told Magnetic Media that this decision to revoke the ministerial position has no bearing on her commitment to serve as an all island elected member to the House of Assembly.Mrs. Connolly called rumors of her ‘cussing out’ the Premier untrue, and said she was ‘very careful’ in dealing with the family emergency involving her nephew and his newborn son.#MagneticMediaNews#JosephineConnollyfired#Connollysaysfiringwasabombshelltoher Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:#Connollysaysfiringwasabombshelltoher, #JosephineConnollyfired, #magneticmedianewslast_img read more
