Simmons, Mitchell and young NBA phenoms set for Rising Stars

first_imgNueva Ecija warehouse making fake cigarettes raided, 29 Chinese workers nabbed Sea turtle trapped in net freed in Legazpi City Garcia, Rios set for WBC welterweight title elimination bout “I mean I’m here for a reason and obviously Philly chose me for a reason, and I’ve spoken to Brett (Brown) a lot when I was hurt and he wanted me to run the team and be the point guard,” the Australian said. “So I know he trusts me and has faith in me, and for myself I know I definitely trust and believe in myself.”Same with Kuzma, even though he came into the league from Utah with far less fanfare after being taken with the No. 27 pick, which belonged to Brooklyn and was traded to the Lakers. He’s gone on to average nearly 16 points and join Hall of Famers Jerry West and Elgin Baylor as the only Lakers rookies with three straight games of 25 or more.“It’s pretty cool any time you’re mentioned with guys that are Hall of Famers or very important to this game’s history,” Kuzma said.“I kind of knew I was going to play well,” he added. “If you don’t have that confidence then you shouldn’t be playing really.”More important than just playing well, they’ve helped their teams have success. The 76ers have won five straight and look like a playoff team after a few dismal years. Utah is even hotter, winning an NBA-leading 11 in a row, and Mitchell became the first rookie to lead his team in scoring during a streak that long.The rookie leader with 19.6 points per game acknowledges getting distracted earlier this season by thinking too much about rookie of the year and paying too much attention to what his classmates were doing after not being taken until the No. 13 pick.“So I kind of shut all that out and just said I’m here to contribute to my team in any way that I can and help in any way that I can,” he said.Once he did, his game — and the Jazz — took off.The league’s rising stars will likely take off when they share the spotlight Friday night. MOST READ Those two guards head up a deep rookie class and might be neck-and-neck in this year’s NBA rookie of the year race in which both are worthy of winning.“I’m going to throw it out there, I like the whole Grant Hill and Jason Kidd co-rookie of the years,” Miller said. “I’ll throw that out there now because I think both are well-deserving of it.”Hill and Kidd shared the award in 1995 and might enter the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame together this summer.Perhaps Simmons and Mitchell will be similarly linked years from now.They will be together Friday night when the NBA’s best first- and second-year players compete in the Rising Stars in Los Angeles to kick off All-Star weekend.ADVERTISEMENT Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

But the rosters for the game, which pits a U.S. team against the World, show just how deep the league is with young talent.There’s Simmons’ teammate Joel Embiid, who joins him on the World squad, while the U.S. has Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, who helped Boston lead the East most of the season. Brandon Ingram and Kyle Kuzma will play for the U.S., though the hometown Lakers lost out on a third player when Lonzo Ball had to pull out because of injury.Dennis Smith Jr. of Dallas, who like Mitchell will compete in the Slam Dunk contest, also will suit up for the Americans.The rest of the rosters:— U.S.: Kris Dunn (Chicago), John Collins and Taurean Prince (Atlanta) and De’Aaron Fox (Sacramento). Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon of Milwaukee was picked for the game but is injured.— World: Lauri Markkanen (Chicago), Dario Saric (Philadelphia), Buddy Hield and Bogdan Bogdanovic (Sacramento), Jamal Murray (Denver), Domantas Sabonis (Indiana), Frank Ntilikina (New York) and Dillon Brooks (Memphis).The youngsters are winning games and admirers with skills well beyond their years. Clippers coach Doc Rivers raved about Simmons and Embiid — and said not to forget the second-year Saric — after his team was beaten in Philadelphia last week.“I’m still very impressed sometimes,” he said. “I’ve still (had) great first impressions.”The only guys who don’t seem impressed are the players themselves.Not Simmons, the No. 1 pick of the 2016 draft from LSU who had to sit out a year with a foot injury but expected to hit the ground running once he could play.

Oxnard to pay $2.75 million in run-over death

OXNARD – The city of Oxnard has agreed to pay $2.75 million to the family of an Iowa woman who was killed after being accidentally run over by police officers on the beach. The settlement, announced Tuesday, came a day before trial was set to begin in Ventura County Superior Court in the death of Cindy Conolly. On June 12, 2006, Conolly was sunbathing on the beach at Mandalay Bay a day after her son was married about 300 yards away, according to Mark Hiepler, the family’s attorney. An Oxnard police officer patrolling the beach did not see her and drove over her in his 6,500-pound Chevy Tahoe. The city had no beach-driving policy for officers, and the officer had not received any training in beach driving, Hiepler said.

Listen: Declan Bonner’s emotional tribute to the ‘outstanding’ Pat Shovelin

first_imgThe Donegal senior football team manager, Declan Bonner, has paid an emotional tribute to Pat Shovelin, a man he described as ‘an outstanding fella’.Shovelin, aged just 41, passed away on Saturday evening following a battle with a rare form of cancer.The popular and much-loved goalkeeping coach was an integral part of Donegal dressing rooms since 2010. “He was really popular and you could see why,” Bonner said.“He was a top class goalkeeping coach. That’s what he was. He was outstanding and so professional.“He was an outstanding fella. He was a real proud Ardara man, a real proud Donegal man and an outstanding family man.”Shovelin was goalkeeping coach for Jim McGuinness’s reign as manager, winning an All-Ireland, three Ulster senior and an Ulster Under-21 title. This year, he coached the goalkeepers with Bonner’s U21s, who defeated Derry in the Ulster U21 final.Bonner said: “There was no prouder man in the Athletic Grounds that evening than Pat Shovelin.“He fought a great fight. He’s a huge, huge loss. He was a great fella.  You could trust him with anything.”Listen to the full interview below …Listen: Declan Bonner’s emotional tribute to the ‘outstanding’ Pat Shovelin was last modified: October 23rd, 2017 by Chris McNultyShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Declan BonnerPat Shovelinlast_img read more

Leopard enters residential area in Pune, injures seven

first_imgSeven persons, including a child and an elderly lady, were injured after a stray leopard entered an under construction building in Pune’s Mundhwa area on Monday morning in search of food.Those injured are said to be out of danger while the feline, who was caught and tranquilized after a long and tense struggle, was sent to the city’s Katraj Wild Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation Centre.According to sources, the leopard entered the work-in-progress 14-floor building of the ‘Vertical Infra’ society in Mundhwa’s Keshavnagar area sometime after 6 a.m. The densely-populated area has a number of unfinished housing projects as well as completed residential colonies.As per reports, the beast allegedly attacked a seven-year-old child and injured three other labourers who rushed to rescue the minor. Frightened labourers raised an alarm and police and forest department authorities as well as personnel from the fire services reached the spot.The feline, who panicked on seeing a large throng gathered in the area, then fell into a duct and was trapped. Officials finally managed to tranquilize the restive animal after more than two hours of struggle, while having a hard time quelling the equally restive mob gathered in large numbers to witness the spectacle. “A policeman, a forest guard and a member of the Katraj Wild Animal rescue center suffered minor injuries while trying to nab the creature,” said a forest department official.The Pune incident is an eerie replay of a similar one which occurred in a crowded locality in Nashik city a little over a week ago, when a leopard had injured four persons, including two media persons and a Shiv Sena corporator before being caught by forest authorities.last_img read more
