The Memphis Grizzlies will finally blow up the roster after getting blown off the court by the Spurs.

The Bears’ needs on the line are more complicated than expected. One might think they are set in the interior with former Packers left guard Josh Sitton joining recent high draft picks Kyle Long and Cody Whitehair. Long, however, got a bad break with a shoulder injury piling on his ankle injury, setting up a rocky offseason of health.

The emphasis will be on tackles to upgrade from Charles Leno and Bobby Massie, but Long’s status might prompt the Bears to go for a big, strong lineman who can swing inside. The ideal guy for that would be Western Michigan’s Taylor Moton if he’s still there for their second-round pick. Come Round 3, Troy’s Antonio Garcia would be ahead of Florida State’s Roderick Johnson because of the Senior Bowl familiarity. A little later, maybe on Day 3, Pittsburgh’s Adam Bisnowaty or Bucknell’s Julie’n Davenport are in play.

With that in mind, Giannis Antetokounmpo was an obvious choice. I wrote long on Giannis a few weeks ago and I won’t rehash all the particulars. His rise from fascinating phenom to top-10 player has been one of the pure joys of this season.

The Warriors are going to trounce the Blazers (bless their hearts), rest up, and trounce the Clippers or Jazz in Round 2. It’s that rest while the other team is fighting for their lives that makes it so tough to survive two months of playoff action as a team outside the No. 1 or 2 seeds.

Manning passed along his emails to New Jerseys Bergen County Superior Court.

In the emails via the New York Post, Alan Zucker, Mannings marketing agent, asked him to send 2 game used helmets and 2 game used jerseys to provide to Steiner Sports in 2010.

After the request was sent, Skiba sent Manning an email saying Let me know what your looking for Ill try to get something down for you…, according to the Post.

2 helmets that can pass as game used. That is it. Eli, Manning allegedly responded from his BlackBerry. Then 17 minutes later, Manning wrote back to Zucker, saying: Should be able to get them for tomorrow.

It might be a long time before another franchise goes nearly 50 years with only three coaches. Even the Patriots, where Bill Belichick has ruled for 17 years, have a long way to go.

Rooneys moves and his presence, on the team and in the NFL, packed an enormous punch. The hiring of Noll, a disciple of Paul Brown from the fierce geographic rival Cleveland Browns, was genius. At 37, it was his first head-coaching job, and he kept it for 23 years.

Mens Devin Funchess Jersey On Rooney’s watch, the Steelers also hired a local sportswriter named Bill Nunn as a scout because of his knowledge of talent at historically black colleges. The Steelers built their dynasty through the draft, particularly with the legendary 1974 draft that produced four future Hall of Famers, all of whom were keys to the four Super Bowl wins.

Charles Barkley was 1 syllable short of saying Giannis Antetokounmpo’s name correctly

Conley had a career year this season, in large part because coach David Fizdale encouraged him to attack more often. That means using acute stop-and-go moves like this.

Conleys hesitation dribble isnt like most players. He doesnt need to put the ball down again to complete his move, which means hes able to pull it off more easily in tight spaces. It also helps that Conley can finish with either hand, allowing him to pin his man on his back behind a screen from either side of the court.

Giannis Antetokounmpo is one of the biggest stars in the NBA, who also happens to have a long Greek surname to pronounce. Theres a well-documented history of people trying to say Antetokounmpo and not getting it quite right, despite the Greek Freak being in the league for a while now.

It’s not hard to say ‘Giannis Antetokounmpo’

On Sunday, Charles Barkley tried to say Antetokounmpos name while praising him, and he sounded so confident about it. He told his co-hosts he was working on pronouncing it correctly all night.

Harold Jones-Quartey Limited Jersey Watching Terry Stotts offense is like watching cars drive around a race track. The Blazers loop their perimeter players from one side of the three-point arc to another, using that setup motion to initiate whatever they want to run.

When LaMarcus Aldridge was in town, that motion usually served to create the best passing angles to dump the ball into the post. Since his departure, Portland has used these sequences to set up the right angles for Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum pick and rolls. As Portlands roster changed, so did its system.

That required the big men to play a different role: setting flare screens to keep the guards moving. Its especially fun when those flare screens lead directly to open shots.

Penguins fan gets tattoo of ’50s pinup Phil Kessel riding a hot dog

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is many things: actor, wrestler, singer, person who can get away with accidentally hitting someone’s car, and just a general badass. But the most important thing is he’s a father who’s willing to get silly for his kid. So here’s The Rock dressed up as Pikachu for Easter.
Kids Ian Desmond Jersey
Kids Frank Clark Jersey The first time Jasmine’s favorite character, Pikachu came to visit her months ago she was only crawling. For Easter Sunday @laurenhashianofficial and I thought, Pikachu should make a special visit once again. Well, Pikachu didn’t account for the fact that now Jazzy RUNS and for 2hrs straight she wants to play her new favorite game, “I run away and you chase me Pikachu.

Kessel was traded to the Penguins and immediately went on to win a Stanley Cup with the team. This tattoo mocks the false report about him eating hot dogs during the season, while pointing to his recent success.

But it’s those eyes … those cold, lifeless eyes — with a mouth that wants to devour. everything. Stare into the maw of your oblivion.

Bryan Harsin attended Boise State just as the emerging FCS power was transitioning to FBS. He completed 11 of 39 passes for 155 yards, a touchdown, and an interception over four seasons (1996-99), but while his playing career wasn’t noteworthy, his time in Boise was.

During Harsin’s freshman season, BSU went 2-10; his senior year, under Dirk Koetter, they went 10-3. In the 17 seasons since, the Broncos have never won fewer than eight games in a season. When Harsin signed on as BSU tight ends coach in 2002, the Broncos went 12-1. When he became a coordinator in 2006, they went undefeated. And when he returned as head coach, his Broncos secured the Group of Five’s first Playoff bowl autobid and won the Fiesta Bowl.

Millsap forced overtime after LeBron James’ inbound pass allowed the Hawks to trap Kyrie Irving in the corner.

Paul Millsap sank a fading mid-range jumper as time expired to send the Cleveland Cavaliers and Atlanta Hawks to overtime with a score of 111-111. The shot completed a 26-point Hawks comeback.

And, sadly, putting a kickoff through the uprights remains impressive but meaningless.

Denver’s line was one of the worst in the league in 2016, and it made it impossible for Trevor Siemian or Paxton Lynch to play well enough to make the playoffs, even with a dominant defense. Denver’s line allowed 40 sacks and 100 quarterback hits on its young quarterback duo last season.

Matt Paradis was a strength at center, but Donald Stephenson struggled at right tackle last season. This offseason, the Broncos decided to move on from left tackle Russell Okung just one season after signing him.

Hoffman led the tournament by four strokes after the first round and was tied for the lead after the second. He emerged alone again for much of Saturday’s round, but Hoffman declined on the back nine and lost his leading position for Sunday. Hoffman nonetheless remains in solid contention, as do many others.

High winds made Augusta National a challenging course on Thursday and Friday. Saturday was a gorgeous day, and the field scoring average was by far the lowest of the three days. (Augusta’s always hard, but it was less so on Saturday.) Weather’s expected to again be good on Sunday. Even for the players at the highest heights of the leaderboard, it’ll require several birdies to win this tournament. Just making par after par almost certainly won’t be enough in a low scoring environment.

Matt Schaub, Andre Johnson argument caps off Texans loss

It’s been a rough season for the Houston Texans. As they lost to the Raiders on Sunday, Matt Schaub and Andre Johnson got into a shouting match on the sidelines shortly after they were stopped in the red zone late in the fourth quarter.

Houston’s offense came off the field with just over a minute to play after failing to convert from the Raiders’ two-yard line. Schaub couldn’t connect with Johnson on fourth down, with the big receiver covered tightly by Oakland in the end zone.

Game Womens Trent Murphy Jersey Nobody is saying Mohamed Sanu has the arm strength of Dalton, but this play has been run twice since he was drafted in 2017. We’d like to see more of it.

This video has not been doctored, we promise. Kicker Nick Folk compensates for the wind by aiming almost directly at the left upright, but he couldn’t have predicted the gust that took the ball and moved it over 20-feet to the right.

In order to win against the Broncos, the Kansas City Chiefs needed a big game game from Jamaal Charles. He played well, finishing with 78 yards — but it wasn’t enough.

This impressive run could have been the play of the year. Keeping his feet in bounds would have resulted in the best rushing touchdown of the season, and he was extremely close.

It’s nice to see Terry Bradshaw have so much fun, but I’ve never seen an adult filled with this much glee. Kudos to him aiming the controller at the drone itself, as it reminds me of watching my mom play “Super Mario Land” on the Game Boy for the first time.

The Lakers beat the Grizzlies

The Suns are the only team that can mess with the Lakers’ quest: Phoenix is almost as bad as L.A., but not quite. Until the past month, when the Suns have lost a dozen straight, narrowing the gap. Going into Sunday, the Suns had 22 wins with five games remaining. The Lakers had 21 wins with six games left.

The Lakers beat the Grizzlies. (It turns out even ultra-serious Memphis is susceptible to the Day Game on Sunday After An Off-Day In L.A. flu. The Suns lost to the Rockets without James Harden. That puts both teams at 22 wins.

Unless Phoenix wins more games than L.A. in the final 10 days of the season, the Lakers’ odds of keeping their pick will go down from 55 percent to 45 or 50 percent, depending on whether we end up with a tie. That doesn’t seem like much. But rest assured: it is.

It is not uncommon for NFL teams to reach out to coaches to talk about former players. Kelly鈥檚 about as close as you鈥檒l get to an authority on Kizer beyond family and friends. But satellite radio probably isn鈥檛 the best way to bring up Kizer鈥檚 maturity.

Game Kids Wilt Chamberlain Jersey Anchored by centers Przemek Karnowski and Zach Collins, the Zags鈥?interior shot defense is dominant. Teams have made 39.8 percent of their twos against Gonzaga this season, the lowest figure in the country. UNC shoots 51 percent inside the arc, which is fine, but not special. The Zags just can鈥檛 get torched on second chances.

The basketball team won its sixth national title on Monday night.

Elite Mens Mitchell Schwartz Jersey On Monday night, a new college basketball champion was crowned, as the No. 1-seed North Carolina Tar Heels defeated fellow No. 1-seed Gonzaga Bulldogs, 71-65. The victory gave the Tar Heels their sixth title in school history, and as you can imagine, the streets of Chapel Hill flooded with celebrations after the win.

The Morgan Park Mustangs of Chicago won the Illinois Class 3A state championship title in high school basketball but lacked the money to pay for the rings typically given to the winners. Chicago Public Schools couldn’t lend a hand, so the school’s athletic director, Michael Berger, took to Twitter to get help.

It paid off.

Marty B was the second person to contact the school, but his foundation is going to pay for all of the rings. The school let Bennett tell the team himself, via FaceTime:

Elite Youth Ty Lawson Jersey As the letter shows, Chicago-raised comedian Hannibal Buress also donated to the athletic program. Who they could still target in the draft: Cleveland’s most pressing needs right now are defensive help and a viable starting quarterback, but the team also has 11 picks to work with in the upcoming draft. Whether a rookie is the starting quarterback next season or the team decides to go with someone already on the roster, like Cody Kessler, they have to protect the quarterback more effectively next season.

Though it’s always great to see celebrities give back, something that could go overlooked is the fact that the team the Mustangs defeated in the championship, the Fenwick High School Friars, also sent in donations for the rings — even before any celebrity donations came in. It looks like there are champions all over Chicago.
