He loves NASCAR and is talking for so many fans, media, drivers and so many more connected with the sport tonight. pic.twitter.com/KIEKiVvK7f— Arash Markazi (@ArashMarkazi) June 22, 2020Marty Smith is almost dropping F bombs on ESPN. He is incredibly upset, and I’m with him.— Jordan Dajani (@JordanDajani) June 22, 2020Shoutout to Marty Smith being so vulnerable and showing humility during a moment like this. They gotta find the man. This is sick pic.twitter.com/BAe53qrY2O— JUNE (@LeeonPhelps) June 22, 2020As for Wallace, Smith reports that the driver never actually saw the noose. Someone else on his team noticed it and they brought it to NASCAR’s attention.”This will not break me, I will not give in nor will I back down,” Wallace said in a statement on Twitter. “I will continue to proudly stand for what I believe in.” ESPN’s Marty Smith was brought on to “SportsCenter” to deliver a report on a noose being found in Bubba Wallace’s garage, but Smith couldn’t help but let himself get emotional on the subject.Smith went on a passionate speech while talking about the subject, often trying to avoid using too many expletives. He let one slip, but was otherwise careful because he was on live television.  “This sport is in a moment where this crap, this despicable crap is not only not acceptable, but there’s just no place for it,” Smith said. “And whomever that is, I hope that you are so ashamed of yourself. I hope that you realize that that is someone’s dignity. And that is someone’s positioning in this sport who has earned his place by talent and by hard work. And he stood up for something that he believed, and he asked for help from other people who believe similarly. And the measures were taken to start taking those steps.”MORE: NASCAR community reacts to noose in Wallace’s garageSmith went on to discuss how much he enjoyed Talladega before this incident.”[Talladega] is my favorite race. I love the staff here,” Smith says. “And then some … I’m about to say words I’m not allowed to say. Something like this happens? In the garage area? In the garage area of Richard Petty’s race car?”Smith has covered NASCAR for ESPN since 2006, and he truly cares about the sport. So to see something like this happen, he was clearly frustrated. “For a young man in Bubba Wallace, who has galvanized so many people because he was willing to stand up for something that is so long overdue, and NASCAR’s current management level, executive level agrees that it was time to take this stand, and somebody goes and does this,” Smith said. “You’re not just hurting one or two people, whomever you are. You’re hurting a whole lot of people who have made the decision that it is damn sure time to go be better, and it pisses me the hell off. And it pisses everybody else in the sport off who care, who care not only for Bubba, but for every single person that he is standing up for. And I am so sorry that we even have to have this discussion tonight.”last_img read more

Big Five? Talent-rich Celtics embracing lofty expectations

first_imgLights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Gov’t to employ 6,000 displaced by Taal “I don’t think I necessarily have anything to prove,” he said. “But internally I want to be the best version of myself.”If there was one positive thing that resulted from the absence of Irving and Hayward late last season, it was the emergence of second-year Jaylen Brown and rookie Jayson Tatum.Thrust into starting roles late in the season, both emerged as members of the NBA’s next generation of All-Star-caliber players.Brown proved the athleticism and defensive ability he showed in his first season were no fluke. And at age 19, Tatum played fearlessly in the postseason, averaging 18.5 points per game.What was once thought to be Boston’s new Big Three of Irving, Hayward and Al Horford, has quickly been recast as a Big Five.It’s left coach Brad Stevens with the enviable but delicate challenge of getting the projecting starting five of Irving, Hayward, Horford, Brown and Tatum to jell while also integrating a talented bench that includes Terry Rozier, Marcus Smart, Marcus Morris, Aron Baynes and Daniel Theis.Rozier made the most of starter minutes when Irving was sidelined, and Smart and Morris were defensive cogs on a team that pushed the Cavaliers to seven games in the conference finals.“We have a long way to go. That being said, we clearly have a lot of good players,” Stevens said.Morris said the first task for this group will be leaving their egos in the locker room.“A blind person can see that we have a lot of talent,” Morris said. “So obviously we all know that there is some type of sacrifice that we have to take for the betterment of this team.” 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 Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Maddie Meyer/Getty Images/AFPCANTON, Massachusetts — Last summer, new Boston Celtics arrivals Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward beamed just imagining what it would be like to share the court together.Those dreams lasted all of five minutes before Hayward was lost for the season to a gruesome leg injury on the opening night of the season.ADVERTISEMENT The Celtics somehow survived it and had set themselves up to make a run at the Eastern Conference title when Irving was lost for the final stretch of the regular season and the playoffs following a pair of knee surgeries.But four months after a season with so much potential was tossed into the “what might have been” basket and following an offseason conference shake-up that saw LeBron James head west to Los Angeles, Boston again finds itself in the spotlight heading into training camp.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissIrving and Hayward are back and healthy.

Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines? Blazers look to shake off last season’s disappointing end “I missed it so much and for it to be taken away the way it did, with the timing and everything, it just wasn’t ideal,” Irving said. “It was hurtful, honestly, because it was an uncontrollable thing. To go through it was a learning experience, but it only helped my evolution as a person.”Hayward, who is playing without restrictions following a more than 10-month rehab process, played 5-on-5 earlier this month for the first time since his injury.He said going through the preseason will help him feel 100 percent healthy.“When you don’t play basketball for a year, those things happen. I have to find my rhythm, find my groove a little bit,” Hayward said.Though he feels like a newcomer to this team in some ways, he said he doesn’t feel any pressure.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES Figuring out how to use the talent they have will be the fun part, Tatum said.“Everybody’s gonna have a different role, just with the loaded roster that we have,” he said. “Whatever it takes to win. That’s what we care about. Winning takes care of everything.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Nextlast_img read more
