Knicks know they face tough task in moving on after Anthony

first_imgSteam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ DAY6 is for everybody “He had made his sentiments known, as had we, and if there was something that made sense, we were going to move forward without him,” general manager Scott Perry said. “If it didn’t we were going to move forward with him, and this just happened to make enough sense to move forward without him.”Porzingis hoped Anthony would remain in New York, though understood why the move to Oklahoma City was better for someone he called a mentor and big brother. Kanter also believes the change of scenery will benefit the 33-year-old All-Star, who thanked the organization and city in an essay on his website.“I think he’s going to do a lot of good things in Oklahoma City, and there’s not much distractions,” Kanter said. “It’s a smaller city of course, you can focus on basketball. I think that’s what he needed. He can focus on basketball and just go out there and do his thing.”Kanter was giving a basketball clinic for orphans in Oklahoma City when he learned of the deal and has been beaming ever since about the move to a big city — one with plenty of Turkish restaurants — after the native of Turkey previously played for Utah and the Thunder.He played in some pickup games this summer with Anthony, who would have still been the Knicks’ best offensive weapon if he remained. It appears that will now be Porzingis, the 7-foot-3 forward from Latvia who will be entering his third season.He spent the summer back home, leading the national team in the European championships and didn’t return to New York until Sunday, the day Anthony arrived in Oklahoma City.Porzingis wouldn’t address his decision to skip his exit meeting with Knicks management before leaving. He only wanted to discuss the team to which he returned — the one that’s now his.“The past is the past and I don’t want to talk about that no more,” Porzingis said. “Let’s talk about the next season. I’m just excited to be here.” Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Fajardo leads PBA Governors’ Cup BPC race; Durham top import Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Mos Burger to open in Manila; teases with a pop-up How to help the Taal evacuees So the Knicks know they are facing a tough task in moving on without him — on and off the court.The Knicks completed the trade with Oklahoma City on Monday that sent Anthony to the Thunder and made Kristaps Porzingis the new main man in Madison Square Garden.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSFederer blasts lack of communication on Australian Open smog“Obviously he took a lot of pressure off of everybody.

And now I’m going to be one of those guys that the other team is going to focus on. That’s going to make things more difficult for me, so it’s going to be different. It’s going to be way different.

They hadn’t been able to find a trade that suited the franchise or player, and on Friday said they planned for him to be there when training camp opened.But discussions with the Thunder moved quickly that night and into Saturday morning, and by the afternoon New York had agreed to the trade that brought Enes Kanter, Doug McDermott and a second-round pick to New York.ADVERTISEMENT OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ‘a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Chelsea are NOT in crisis, claims former striker

first_imgFormer Chelsea forward Chris Sutton insists the club are not going through a crisis, despite their stuttering start to the season.The champions have taken just one point from their opening two Premier League games and suffered a heavy defeat to title rivals Manchester City last weekend.Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho controversially hauled captain John Terry off at half-time at the Etihad Stadium, raising questions about the 34-year-old’s future in the starting line-up.However, Sutton says recent criticism of Terry and his manager has been blown out of proportion and backed Chelsea to rediscover the form which saw them cruise to the title last season.“I don’t think many people are in a position to question Mourinho and his decisions,” Sutton told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“Obviously things don’t seem to be going very well. They started their pre-season late, but in the end it’s about results and Chelsea have had a disappointing start to the season.“I don’t think that Mourinho has taken his eye off the ball in any way.They were beaten by a better Manchester City side at the weekend but I don’t think it’s a crisis.“It wasn’t working at the weekend, Mourinho made a change, it’s as simple as that. It doesn’t mean John Terry is finished by any means. It’s all much ado about nothing.“This is the top, top level. It’s no big deal though as far as I can see. John Terry will come back and play regularly.”last_img read more

Carroll should NOT be punished for referee rant, insists West Ham boss Bilic

first_img Andy Carroll in action for West Ham 1 West Ham boss Slaven Bilic insists striker Andy Carroll does not deserve a Football Association charge for his comments about the performance of referee Jon Moss following Sunday’s controversial draw at Leicester.Carroll gave away a disputed late penalty for his challenge on Jeff Schlupp as title chasers Leicester battled back for a point.Carroll claimed afterwards he felt referee Moss had tried to ‘even things up’, having earlier sent Foxes striker Jamie Vardy off for diving and awarded West Ham a penalty from which he scored.The FA has since charged Vardy for his reaction to the red card, but has yet to announce whether Carroll will be punished for his comments.Bilic said: “Would disciplinary action be unfair? Yes it would. Andy said what he said straight after the game, you are hot, you are disappointed – he was in that tackle which gave the penalty away.“But it wasn’t anything major in that statement he made, it’s what players and managers normally say after a game, there was nothing in it for him to face a fine or whatever.”Bilic could also be under the microscope for his after-match comments at the King Power Stadium.Yet Bilic was widely commended for his defence of Moss, and of referees in general, following the stormy clash.“From all the comments I read and heard, mine were the most sympathetic towards the referee,” he added.“It was hard for him, it is hard for them. We or the FA should find a way to help them, to ease their job.“It was hard for him in that game. The pressure was there, especially as it’s towards the end of the season and in an unbelievably important game for them, and for us.”West Ham face Watford on Wednesday night looking to keep the pressure on in the race for a top-four finish.The Hammers are seven points behind fourth-placed Arsenal and three shy of Manchester United in fifth.On Sunday Watford head to Wembley for their FA Cup semi-final against Crystal Palace, and Bilic said: “On one hand they will probably think a bit about the game at the weekend, and maybe they will rest some players.“But they brought a lot of players, experienced players, in the summer and in January.“They have a big squad and a certain way of playing, and players who maybe start on Wednesday will have some fresh legs which is good for them.“No matter which team they put out we need a win. The gap (to fourth place) is big, but the gap can be reduced.“We have to win games. We are still in a big race for Europe and we are going to do everything we can.”last_img read more

IDA challenged to focus on new investment in Donegal

first_imgDonegal Senator Pádraig Mac Lochlainn has today challenged the IDA at the Oireachtas Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Committee to focus on new investment for the county.The Committee was dealing with the impact of Brexit on businesses and job creation across this island.Senator Mac Lochlainn said challenged the IDA to up its game on bringing new investment and jobs to Donegal at the Oireachtas Jobs Committee. “I was surprised and alarmed at the rosy picture provided to the Committee of the IDA’s results in spreading inward investment and jobs throughout the State and particularly into Donegal and other border counties.The IDA repeatedly refers to jobs growth at existing companies they support in the county and that is indeed welcome but we are asking where are the new companies and inward investment for the county?”“Few counties in this State will be as impacted by Brexit as Donegal. From fisheries to tourism and from agri- food to engineering, there is a real threat to our local economy. To fix a problem, you first have to accept that there is one. It is clear to me that the IDA do not accept that in terms of site visits by potential investors and the locating of new companies supported by the IDA in our county, the last numbers of years have been very disappointing.“The IDA needs to work closer with Enterprise Ireland, Udarás, LYIT, Donegal County Council and the Donegal Local Enterprise Office as a team to maximise the potential of this county and to minimise the impact of Brexit as much as possible”.

John Terry scores, but fans start to understand why ‘past it’ legend is leaving

first_img1 John Terry made his 716th Chelsea appearance on Monday evening as the Premier League champions welcomed Watford to Stamford Bridge.And the legendary centre-back capped his return to the starting XI by opening the scoring for the Blues.However, that was as good as his night got.Just seconds after scoring it was Terry’s mistake which led to Etienne Capoue’s equaliser, and all night long the 36-year-old defender was shaky at the back. The Blues conceded three times, and needed a late Cesc Fabregas goal to secure a 4-3 win.Terry will leave Chelsea this summer after 22 years of service, and this kind of performance proved it is time for the once world class defender to leave Stamford Bridge.And fans are starting to understand that too.Following his showing, Blues supporters took to social media to claim Terry is ‘past it’ and ‘finished’.

Brendan Rodgers urged to leave Celtic and ‘Scottish Pub League’ in amazing rant

first_img Brendan Rodgers has been told to end his time at Celtic Brendan Rodgers is wasting his time and talent at Celtic and must return to management in the Premier League.That’s the view of talkSPORT’s Ian Abrahams, aka The Moose, following the Scottish club’s failure to reach the Champions League proper. “Rodgers is wasting his time and talent in Scotland… 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿…Celtic showed last night that it’s pointless for them to take part in a European competition!” 👀We don’t think @BroadcastMoose will be welcome in certain parts of Glasgow after this rant ↓ pic.twitter.com/zfP9Vv8noZ— The Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast (@SportsBreakfast) August 15, 2018 Rodgers has won back-to-back domestic trebles at Celtic following his appointment in 2016 but Moose insists his achievements up north count for little due to the quality of Scottish football, and he is urging the former Liverpool boss to head back to England.“There is absolutely no point any more in Brendan Rodgers twice a season beating Hamilton and Kilmarnock, St Johnstone and even Rangers and Aberdeen. What is the point,” he said, speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“The SPL has always stood for one thing and one thing only: ‘The Scottish Pub League’. Celtic’s record in Europe is poor. Last night, they once again showed it is pointless in even taking part in European competition.“They were the first British club to win it. With a bunch of players all from the local area they went and won the European Cup. That was fantastic, but that was so long ago now that colour TV wasn’t even invented in those days. There is no point in winning a Scottish league title every season.“Brendan must come back to England now. There is no point in him staying there and winning ten in a row. What does that achieve?“What is ten Scottish titles in a row going to mean on his CV? Outstanding, well done mate. It must be so hard to beat Ross County and Inverness Caledonian Thistle four times a season.” 1last_img read more

Half-time: Shakhtar 1 Chelsea 0

first_imgChelsea trailed to a dominant Shakhtar Donetsk side after being outplayed for long periods of an open and entertaining first half.The European champions went a goal down after only three minutes, when Alex Teixeira took advantage of a fortunate ricochet off John Terry and fired low past Petr Cech.Terry returned to the side along with Frank Lampard, but the latter went off injured after 18 minutes.And Terry also had a miserable opening period as part of an overworked defence as the hosts dominated.Shakhtar went close on numerous occasions and Cech was forced into several fine saves towards the end of the half.But the home side’s willingness to pour forward left big gaps at the back and will give Chelsea hope they can turn things around with a more composed display in the final third of the pitch.Chelsea: Cech, Ivanovic, Terry, Luiz, Cole, Oscar, Ramires, Mikel, Lampard (Hazard 18), Mata, Torres.Subs: Turnbull, Romeu, Sturridge, Cahill, Azpilicueta, Bertrand.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more
