Sixers’ Joel Embiid Jersey has ‘pretty good chance’ of returning for Game 2 or 3

Sixers center Joel Embiid said that his rehabilitation from a broken orbital bone and concussion has been going well, and we got a pretty good chance for Game 2 or Game 3.

Embiid told ESPN prior to Saturday night’s playoff opener against the Miami Heat that he still has to prove that he can withstand contact before he will be cleared to return, but he has been ramping up his on-court work in recent days and has been able to do everything that has been thrown at him thus far.

As a candidate, Donald Trump made building a wall across America’s southern border the centerpiece of his campaign. As president, he continues to tout its virtues, though less theatrically. So he really wants to make good on that pledge, right? Maybe not, suggests Commentary’s Noah Rothman. After all, he’s had a number of opportunities to declare his mission accomplished, but has conspicuously passed on all of them. Congress just gave him $1.6 billion for border security, a tiny fraction of what he’d demanded, yet he took the deal without even offering a counter-proposal. Then he depicted defeat as some rare species of victory. It’s starting to look like Trump would prefer to have his wall as a martyr, occasionally waving its bloody tunic around before the crowd at pro-Trump rallies.

For as decorated a career as LeBron James has enjoyed, he has been at his absolute best in one particular realm: the first round of the playoffs.

The Spurs connected on a paltry 40 percent of their shots from the field and struggled against a Warriors starting lineup of Andre Iguodala, Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green and JaVale McGee, which hadn’t played Ray Rice Youth jersey any minutes together during the regular season.

Golden State outscored San Antonio 40-24 in 16 minutes with its starting lineup on the floor, as it put together a defensive efficiency rating of 71.1. With their starters on the floor, the Warriors didn’t allow an offensive rebound, outscored San Antonio 16-6 in the paint and connected on 64 percent of their shots, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

Starting Spurs point guard Dejounte Murray agreed with Popovich’s deer-in-headlights assessment.

Bautista struck out swinging to end the sixth. It was his 160th strikeout, breaking a tie with Jose Canseco (1988) and Kelly Johnson (2012) for the Blue Jays’ single season record.

Could the Giants be replacing a club with a Chubb?

After the Giants agreed to a surprising trade with the Buccaneers on Thursday morning, in which Jason Pierre-Paul was sent back to his native Florida, speculation immediately began that the No. 2 pick could be earmarked for his replacement: Bradley Chubb, a defensive end out of North Carolina State.

Chubb is regarded as far and away the best defensive end prospect, and the Giants have a rich history of strong defensive lines. The last time the Giants had the No. 2 pick in a draft, they selected another ACC defensive player who became the best in their history: Lawrence Taylor.

“I would take it on with a [head] full of steam,’’ Chubb said at the Scouting Combine about comparisons to Taylor, which would come with being such a high pick. “Just go out there and compete to be my best. A lot of people are going to have expectations of me no matter how high I go or how low I go. It’s just something where I have to stay humble and keep working on myself.’’

Reid painted the decision Thursday as a transition from one form of protest to others, which he’s hoping to expand into activist work.

“From the beginning, Colin has been flexible,” Reid said, according to ESPN. “He started by sitting — he changed it up. We decided to kneel. And we understand that you’ve got to change with the times. I’m not going to say that I’m going to stop being active, because I won’t. I’m just going to consider different ways to be active. Different ways to bring awareness to the issues of this country. To improve the issues happening in this country.”

Reid continued the protest of racial injustice and police brutality last season as Kaepernick was unable to find a job. Now Reid has not received any reported contract offers despite strong play on the field, including a Pro Bowl selection in 2013 and over 60 tackles the past two seasons.

“I know my agent is in communication with a couple teams. No numbers have been talked about. No visits have been talked about. Just see what happens,” he said.
Other current and former NFL players have spoken out in favor of Reid while he looks for employment. Richard Sherman, who signed with the 49ers last week, was the most vocal, telling reporters Tuesday he was “concerned” because he believes Reid has built up enough of a résumé to earn a team’s faith.

Nick Foles Jersey: I would love the opportunity to be a starter again

Limited Kids Eddie Robinson Jersey The Eagles acknowledged there had been calls about trading for the Super Bowl MVP, who will be a man without a starting job when Wentz returns from his knee injury. But because there’s at least some uncertainty about Wentz’s timeline, the Eagles said they intend for Foles to be on the roster at the start of the season.

That is pretty tempting. — North Carolina State defensive end Bradley Chubb, a relentless edge rusher who could step in day one and be a good bookend for Olivier Vernon on the Giants’ front. There aren’t many college edge rushers who can play the run well and the pass superbly, but this stat from his college career says he can do just that: He exceeded 20 tackles for loss and 10 sacks in each of his last two college seasons. I truly don’t know what the Giants will do, particularly if they’ve got a bright prospect like Darnold staring at them when their 15 minutes start April 26.

The catch rule has been under scrutiny for years, but the Bryant play, which possibly cost the Cowboys the game against the Packers, brought it under particularly intense scrutiny. And the James play, which may have handed the Patriots home-field advantage over the Steelers, appears to have been the last straw.

Whether the new catch rule turns out to be any less controversial than the old Derrick White Womens Jersey catch rule remains to be seen. But it would have changed two of the most controversial plays the NFL has seen.

What’s next for Cowboys’ offense after Dez Bryant Jersey release?

On Friday, the Dallas Cowboys released receiver Dez Bryant, a staple of the franchise for eight seasons and a player who collected nearly 7,500 yards and hauled in a franchise-record 73 touchdown catches.

But none of them has flashed the pure explosiveness and ability to overpower defensive backs that聽Bryant once displayed early in his Cowboys tenure.

Gerald McCoy Authentic Jersey The Santa Clara County District Attorney’s office has not made a decision about criminal charges against Foster, Maiocco reports. Foster was arrested last month for alleged domestic violence, threats and possession of an assault weapon.

Any time there’s an issue like that, we’ll have a discussion, York said. Right now, there’s still a lot of work that needs to be done with Reuben. And we’ll handle that as it comes. You don’t want to say it’s easier outside of the season, but it Patrick Omameh Jersey is easier outside of the season because you don’t need to make a decision today.

We have to wait until that [a decision from the Santa Clara County DA’s office] happens, but that will obviously be something that we get together and discuss whatever comes down when those issues come up and figure out where we move from there.

The Texans have added an alternative to Brandon Weeden or Taylor Heinicke at backup quarterback and a special teams contributor in one package.

Matthews struck on the power play with 1:55 left in the first when William Nylander wheeled down from the point, froze Price and delivered a sweet cross-ice feed for a wide-open net to get the ball rolling on a milestone night.

Dallas finished three points behind Colorado for the second wild-card in the Western Conference. The Stars went 0-6-2 in mid-March when starting goalie Ben Bishop sustained a knee injury, and that stretch of poor play loomed large in not making the playoffs for the second consecutive season.

You hate to look back and wonder what you could have done different, but we played some pretty good hockey most of the year and didn’t raise our level when it needed to be raised. And here we are out of the playoffs now, Benn said.

Wuerffel made his public plea for Harvin to join the roster Thursday through a Twitter post featuring a photo of the two together.

I’m quite surprised at how much interest I’ve sparked up in the last couple of months. Being from out of the sport and not really knowing much about it I’m pretty privileged and honored to receive invites to the clubs so cheerios to them, Mailata said in an interview with the NFL Network.

For an athlete of Mailata’s size, his agility numbers left a strong impression with scouts during workouts recently. He ran a 5.12-second 40-yard dash and had a 4.67-second short shuttle time.

Lions could go the cheap food route at Ford Field

The NFL is a copycat league in more ways than one.

With the Falcons drawing rave reviews for the decision to remove the thumbs for the scales when it comes to pricing in-stadium food options, the Lions are now considering the same approach.

With Corey Knebel suffering a hamstring injury, the Brewers’ deep bullpen will be put to the test. Leagues with daily moves have already snagged Matt Albers, Jacob Barnes, Jeremy Jeffress and Josh Hader. Milwaukee’s broadcast team indicated that Albers could be first in line. We could know more by the end of the weekend, but I’m going after Jacob Barnes in my leagues. In scenarios that could be long-term, I’d rather invest in the most highly skilled option, figuring the lesser-skilled manager’s favorite is likely to struggle. Hader could be the best of the lot, but he’s most likely going to remain in the multi-inning role.

GS is the projected game score for the pitcher. The “*” symbol means the pitcher lacks requisite career major league data to produce an accurate rating; these are the author’s ratings.

So Gurley can say whatever he wants, as can any player with the Rams or any other team. And the things being said by players throughout the league will surely continue, until the Giants sign Beckham to a long-term deal.

The Raptors and Celtics are locked into the top two spots.

Toronto can still get home-court advantage versus every team but Houston by getting ahead of Golden State in the standings; the two teams are tied, and the Warriors hold the tiebreaker.

With Kyrie Irving lost for the season and Marcus Smart not expected to play in the first round, Boston is currently one of the weaker teams in our RPM power ratings, making a first-round upset a stronger possibility than usual for a No. 2 seed.

The Sixers gained the edge in the red-hot race for No. 3 with their nail-biting 132-130 win over Cleveland on Friday, but their position is not safe.buccaneers_100

NFL free agent rumors: Rams are frontrunners for Ndamukong Suh Jersey after Jets pull offer

The Rams have become the frontrunners to sign free-agent defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh after the Jets rescinded their contract offer that reportedly was the biggest he had received.
Men's Adidas Brooklyn Nets #1 D'Angelo Russell Swingman Gray Alternate NBA Jersey
The Rams are in the driver’s seat, NFL.com Insider Ian Rapoport said Monday morning on NFL Network’s Good Morning Football show. They appear to be the frontrunner for Suh. It feels like it’s the Rams’ deal to lose.

Suh was released March 14 by the Dolphins. The Rams, Saints and Titans are the three teams he continues to consider, reports say, after the Jets bowed out.

He already has visited the Titans, Saints and Rams. The Raiders also showed interest, but Suh canceled a visit with them earlier this week.

Suh was a three-time All-Pro in five seasons with the Lions before signing a six-year, $114 million contract with Miami Womens Tom Pyatt Jersey in 2015. He had 15 1/2 sacks in three seasons with the Dolphins and has made just one Pro Bowl since 2014.

That said, if the Browns knew Manziel had a poor work ethic, then they had to realize they were taking a huge gamble on him. It’s a gamble they lost.

Manziel also blamed the Browns for not helping him adapt to the NFL, saying there was no one in the locker room to teach him the ropes of a pro-style offense.

Elite Mens Shaq Lawson Jersey Manziel’s comments got the media buzzing, which prompted him to tweet that he simply wasn’t a good fit in Cleveland and that he has no one to blame but myself.

Playoff LeBron helps on 11 percent of drives, with his team allowing 0.9 points per drive. LeBron’s regular-season efforts would rank his team as roughly the 12th-best defensive team against drives in the league — playoff LeBron’s teams rank No. 1 in this area.

Elite Kids Yuli Gurriel Jersey Playoff LeBron is also a far more effective defender in transition than regular-season LeBron. On transition possessions that LeBron is involved in during the regular season, his team gives up 1.3 points per possession.

We all understand he has a unique skill set in terms of the pass game, Wells said, but he’s a very sharp kid and he can do a little bit of it all.

I can’t say that I can see him as just a guy that is split out (as a receiver) because I think we’d be doing an injustice to him. He is a a willing blocker, and a guy that’s willing to do everything that goes into into it.

Cincinnati was swept at home by Washington, falling to 0-3 for the first time since 2003. It also trailed in all 27 innings — the Nationals scored in the first inning each time.

It was going to happen, regardless, and I’m glad it was in a game I started, said Mahle, who got his second major league victory. So many guys contributed to that win.

After their traditional opening parade, the Reds finally got a lead, too, when Eugenio Suarez tripled in the fourth and scored on Adam Duvall’s groundout. Mahle (1-0) earned the victory in only his fifth major league start, outpitching Tyler Chatwood (0-1) in his Cubs debut.

The Cubs were coming off a 6-0 loss in Miami and managed only four baserunners against Mahle, who walked two, hit one and struck out a career-high seven.

Ian Happ singled in the eighth, but Iglesias came in later and got Nate Palmer Youth jersey Rizzo to swing through a high fastball to escape. Iglesias got last four outs for the save.

Authentic Womens Matt Paradis Jersey Rizzo is 1 for 7 with runners in scoring position this season and batting.130 overall, a slump he figures won’t last long.

If you look at the back of the bubblegum card, it kind of speaks for itself, Rizzo said. I’ll get more (chances) this year and hopefully come through.

Chicago has been blanked in back-to-back games for the first time since last May 26-27, when the Dodgers beat the Cubs 4-0 and 5-0. The Cubs also were held to one run during a 17-inning loss in Miami.

Report: ‘Far more likely than not’ Giants trade Odell Beckham Jr Jersey

Kids Glenn Robinson Jersey As the NFL Draft approaches at a rapid clip, rumors surrounding a potential Odell Beckham Jr. trade from the New York Giants are ramping up big time.
Nike William Gholston Women's Olive/Camo Limited Jersey: #92 NFL Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2017 Salute To Service
We already know that the Los Angeles Rams and San Francisco 49ers are among the teams interested in Beckham. That list likely isn’t limited to even two handfuls of teams. We also know that the Giants are seemingly working the phones hard behind the scenes despite a public stance to the contrary.

Seven countries are interested in hosting the 2026 Winter Olympics. Cities in Austria, Canada, Italy, Japan, Sweden, Switzerland and Turkey have submitted formal expressions of interest to the International Olympic Committee. The vote is scheduled for September 2019. The IOC has tried to attract more bidders after only two candidates reached the vote for the 2022 Games.

Voters in and around Sion, Switzerland, will vote in June whether to continue with their bid, while Erzurum in eastern Turkey faces questions over security. Four former host cities are also bidding, including 1972 host Sapporo, 1988 host Calgary and 1956 host Cortina d’Ampezzo. Turin, which hosted the 2006 Games, is part of a joint bid with Milan.

Elite Alex Stalock Jersey I have been sitting on a pinned tweet since Aug. 16 of last summer, and it remains atop my Twitter feed — where it will stay until the second week of July whenJames chooses his next team.

I provided a little intel into where this information came from inWednesdaynight’s Jamie Langenbrunner Womens Jersey post following the Sixers’ 12th straight win, 115-108 over the Detroit Pistons, and I will delve a little deeper.

When the information was given to me, my source said: The entire NBA knows it. The only people who don’t are the media.

And as I mentioned in that pinned tweet, the reason for James’ pending departure is a relationship with ownership that is beyond repair.

So let’s take a look at what each of these guys stands for, put it together with the polarized political climate in the United States, and provide some additional clarity to skeptics, trolls, the NBA intelligensia, et al.

If the Niners start slow, the same fans who want to build a statue for Garoppolo will be grousing about the size of his paycheck.

After winning their last five games of the season, the 49ers rewarded quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo with a five-year, $137.5 million contract, making him the NFL’s highest-paid player at the time. With free-agent additions like cornerback Richard Sherman and tailback Jerick McKinnon in town and nine draft picks in their back pocket, the 49ers look like they could make real noise in the NFC West in 2018.

After the year, the Pats signed Moss to a three-year, $27 million deal with $15 million in guarantees. That was in a league where the salary cap was at $116 million — under the current cap, that deal would look more like a three-year, $41 million pact. Moss unquestionably took less money than he could have found on the free market to stay with the Patriots, and Beckham would surely be looking to top the $17 million per year Antonio Brown got on his most recent extension, but it’s not impossible to imagine a world in which Belichick pays a premium for a truly transcendent wide receiver.

More than anything, what this deal affords the Pats is flexibility to fill one or more holes on their roster. They have a major need at offensive tackle after losing Nate Solder, and could use pieces along the defensive line and at cornerback. Another wide receiver wouldn’t hurt, either. Belichick has the assets to move up, down and around the board to target the guys he wants, and he has a track record of winning those trades more often than not.

Intrigued, McCallum introduced himself to Bernhard after class. He explained how he had fallen in love with Las Vegas and thought it was a wonderful place to raise his family.

I also think it’s a wonderful place for my team, the Oakland Raiders, to move to, McCallum told Bernhard. But people always say, ‘Good luck convincing the owners and the rest of the NFL that Las Vegas isn’t evil and that sports betting isn’t evil.’ I think I now have the answers to that.

Just weeks after McCallum attended Bernhard’s class, Davis arrived discreetly at the International Gaming Institute for that February 2015 meeting. He listened to Bernhard describe what he believed to be the NFL’s biggest concerns regarding gambling: corruption, addiction and the sharing of inside information. Bernhard explained how Nevada’s regulated sports betting industry approaches those issues.patriots_033
