Basketball LA Clippers Danilo Gallinari Jerseys Cheap Custom 2017

After landing a punch in a European exhibition game for Italy, LA Clippers forward Danilo Gallinari suffered a right thumb injury that isn’t expected to require surgery, league sources told ESPN.

Gallinari will miss the Eurobasket tournament for Italy but is expected to be fully recovered for the start of the Clippers’ training camp in September, sources said. Clippers doctors are planning to examine the injury soon, but the initial diagnosis calls for a month of rest and rehabilitation on the thumb, sources said.

Gallinari, 28, slugged the Netherlands’ Jito Kok in a scuffle, causing the injury that sent him to a local hospital.

Gallinari signed a three-year, $65 million deal with the Clippers in July, moving from the Denver Nuggets in a sign-and-trade agreement.

Holdout fever is sweeping California.

While Aaron Donald looms as a no-show for the Rams, offensive tackle Donald Penn is officially staging a holdout in Oakland.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Friday that Penn is unhappy with his contract, per a source, noting that the 34-year-old bookend wants to be paid “among the top-10 left tackles in football.”

Penn shared that same sentiment during a phone call with NFL Network’s Willie McGinest on Friday.

“He wants to probably be paid in the top-10. He’s not looking to be the highest paid, the top-5 highest paid. He just wants the respect of what he’s done on the field,” McGinest said during Friday’s addition of NFL Total Access. “Stop looking at his age, he’s like, don’t mention his age, look at my production and what I’ve done. And if I’m in the top-10, then I can probably be comfortable with that.

“He feels like the extension that he got a couple years ago — the 11.8 or 11.9 for two years — was pretty much a bargain. And he figured that in good faith they would come back and re-do his deal because they understand what his worth to that team and what he does for that team.”

Penn, 34, has served as a durable presence for the Raiders, starting 48 straight games for the team and not missing a regular-season start since his rookie campaign with the Bucs in 2007.

With Oakland viewed as a legitimate Super Bowl contender, players up and down the roster will seek reward for their role in turning the franchise around.

Few of those players are more important than Derek Carr’s primary protector. Penn is bound to get a raise.

Cleveland not only allows Rose to contend for a championship, but it furthermore provides Rose the opportunity to play near his hometown of Chicago.

Additionally, in the wake of the news that Kyrie Irving wants out of Cleveland, a starting point guard spot could be up for grabs. Provided Irving secures his request, Rose’s partnering up with LeBron James could keep the Cavaliers afloat as a contender.

Rose has communicated with James through the process that led him to the Cavaliers, league sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

On Monday night, James took to Twitter to welcome his new teammate.

Rose, 28, met with the Los Angeles Lakers for nearly three hours on Thursday, sources said.

The Lakers tried to entice Rose to sign with them, suggesting they can offer more playing time and money in a better environment after his tumultuous 2016-17 season with the New York Knicks.

The Lakers believed that Rose, who had been working out at L.A.’s practice facility lately, could help the development of their rookie point guard Lonzo Ball, the No. 2 pick in the NBA draft.

Rose averaged 18 points, 3.8 rebounds and 4.4 assists on 47.1 percent shooting — his best percentage since the 2009-10 season — in 64 games for the Knicks last season.

Rose also met with Milwaukee Bucks and Los Angeles Clippers.

NBA India managing director Yannick Colaco offered his thoughts on the superstar’s upcoming visit.

“We are thrilled to host 2017 Finals MVP Kevin Durant in India,” Colaco said. “Kevin is coming off an historic season with the Golden State Warriors.

Cheap Stitched Dallas Cowboys Jerseys China 2017

It’s not often the ability of an NFL player to move his pinky toe up and down is a noteworthy event. When it comes to Dallas Cowboys linebacker Jaylon Smith, however, the small mobility is a notable stepping stone.

A lengthy feature on Smith by Jeff Sullivan posted on the team’s official website, notes that in the “last few weeks” the linebacker has progressed to being able to move his little toe up and down, which is a sign of positive nerve regeneration in his left leg. The tiny movement came after he reached the bigger mark of flexing his other toes and lifting his foot in April.

These seemingly normal movements are notable for Smith, who suffered nerve damage, which created drop foot, when he tore his ACL playing for Notre Dame in a bowl game on Jan. 1, 2016.

The road to recovery has been long and grueling, but it appears after hitting the field some this offseason that Smith is ready to make more strides in the coming weeks.

Smith told David Heldman of the team’s official website, in an interview previously shot and posted on Monday, he’s getting back to normal.

“Man, it’s been great,” Smith said of offseason workouts. “Whenever I’m out there, I’m full-go. I’m full throttle, and I’m feeling like myself again. So it’s a great feeling.”

Rookies report to Cowboys training camp in Oxnard, Calif., on July 19 with veterans arriving July 22. The “opening ceremony” for Cowboys camp is July 24. When camp begins, most eyes will be on Smith.

“To be able to compete at a high level,” Smith said when asked of his expectations for training camp. “That’s something that I’m really looking forward to, back in Oxnard, Calif., being able to be on the field again and running and competing with my guys is something that I’m looking forward to. I’m looking forward to being out there.”

The Cowboys will likely ease Smith into camp workouts. Coach Jason Garrett indicated earlier in the offseason that the linebacker likely wouldn’t practice back-to-back days.

Smith is practicing with a “custom-made Richie Brace, with plastic, bendable, hinged sides, much like an air-cast for a high-ankle sprain,” per the team’s official website. The hope is the mobility allowed by the brace will allow the linebacker to regain most of his speed and change-of-direction.

“I’ve heard some doctors and trainers, who haven’t ever seen Jaylon, say that there’s no way he could play in the NFL with an AFO brace, and they’re right,” Cowboys associate athletic trainer/director of rehabilitation Britt Brown said. “With the brace he is wearing, Jaylon can take his natural linebacker stance and come off the ball the same way he would without the brace.”

A Cowboys defense that lost several pieces this offseason, and had several more suspended to start the season, desperately needs Smith to get as close to 100 percent as possible.

When Dallas opens the regular season versus the New York Giants, it will be more than 20 months since Smith played in a meaningful football game. The question the Cowboys hope is answered during training camp and preseason is that Smith shows signs he can be the athlete he was before the injury.

“I’m not going to say no… We have to go through contact,” Brown said when asked could ever get back to his pre-injury ability. “We also have more seasons ahead. The nerve could regenerate more after this coming season. No one can predict that. We’re in a good place right now.”

The hope is that good place turns into an even better one in the coming weeks.

Cheap Basketball Sacramento Kings De’Aaron Fox Jerseys For Sale

LAS VEGAS — Sacramento’s De’Aaron Fox says he did not feel the Lakers’ Lonzo Ball was avoiding playing against him on Monday night in what would have been a rematch between the two rookie point guards.

“He’s a competitor,” Fox said of Ball after the Lakers held off the Kings to win 95-92. “If he’s hurt, like people say, it’s summer league, don’t risk it. When I tweaked my ankle [in the third quarter], Coach took me out and said the same thing.

“No one is ducking anybody at the end of the day.”

Injured Ball (groin) to miss matchup vs. Fox
The Lakers’ Lonzo Ball will sit out Monday night’s game in the Las Vegas Summer League with a groin injury.
A third meeting between Ball and Fox was supposed to be the highlight of Monday’s session at the Las Vegas Summer League. Instead, Ball was held out due to a groin injury and Fox ended up sitting out most of the second half after injuring his right ankle.

Fox, who departed the game with 5:05 remaining in the third quarter and did not return, said the injury wasn’t serious.

He also insisted that a tweet he sent out with the “facepalm” emoji after the Ball injury news came out during the day was a lighthearted effort to stir up things with the media and not a dig at Ball.

“I got hacked,” Fox said before laughing. “Nah, I like to play with y’all. … I know what y’all do. It made a story, didn’t it?

“I knew y’all were going to take it. Y’all ran with it faster than I would run a 40. So I did it.”

The tweet has since been deleted.

ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne reported that Ball’s injury isn’t considered serious and that the Lakers are playing it safe with Ball, who was selected No. 2 overall in this year’s draft.

“He’s fine,” a source told ESPN.

Ball has had the injury since last week, the source said. News of the injury Monday, first reported by USA Today Sports, spoiled what had been a highly anticipated rematch between Ball and Fox, the fifth overall pick by the Kings.

Fox outplayed Ball in the NCAA tournament when Kentucky defeated UCLA 86-75 to reach the Elite Eight. Fox scored 39 points, shooting an efficient 13-for-20, while Ball was held to 10 points, eight assists and four turnovers.

In their first meeting in December at Kentucky, Ball had 14 points, seven assists and six rebounds in a 97-92 win over the Wildcats. Fox had 20 points and nine assists in the loss.

Many have and will often compare the two point guards as their careers move on.

“Yeah, just because we play each other twice and he beat me at home and we beat him in the Sweet 16, so people have kind of intertwined our careers,” Fox said. “We can say whatever we want and no one is going to let it go.”

Fox, who averaged 17.5 points, four assists and four steals in his first two games with the Kings in Las Vegas, finished with 12 points in 20 minutes against the Lakers. Buddy Hield sank 6 of 9 3-pointers and scored 22 points, while Frank Mason had 24 points for the Kings.

Vander Blue led the Lakers with 21 points.

Ball was looking to continue his momentum from Saturday, when he compiled his first triple-double (11 points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists) with the Lakers in an 86-81 loss to Boston.

That was a complete turnaround from his Lakers summer league debut the night before, when Ball shot 2-for-15, including 1-for-11 from 3-point range, in an overtime loss to the Clippers.
The Lakers, though, have been cautious with their prospects. Ball and last year’s second overall pick, Brandon Ingram, both were held out of action Monday. After he suffered a cramp toward the end of the Lakers’ first game Friday, the team opted to shut down Ingram for the remainder of summer league play for precautionary reasons. Rookies Kyle Kuzma (cramps) and Josh Hart (sprained right ankle) also did not play against Sacramento.

The Lakers, who are off Tuesday, will likely re-evaluate Ball on Wednesday and determine his availability for the remainder of summer league. They could opt to play it safe with their point guard.

Fox didn’t seem too upset about missing out on another opportunity to face Ball, knowing there will be plenty of meetings ahead this season.

“He didn’t play, they beat us anyway,” Fox said. “What would have happened if he would have played? If he had to sit out, he sat out. I mean, I sat out the second half.”

“We are still going to play each other,” Fox added. “We are both in the NBA for a reason.”

James Johnson has agreed to the framework of a four-year deal to return to Miami, league sources tell ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. The deal could be worth up to $60 million.
Olynyk is the floor spacing big man that Miami coach Erik Spoelstra had been determined to find this summer, an ideal complement to the Heat’s frontcourt. His role could well expand with the Heat, whose player development program could be a boon to further growing Olynyk’s game.

Olynyk, 26, had been a restricted free agent until free agent Gordon Hayward’s commitment to the Boston Celtics, which created a financial mandate for Boston to renounce Olynyk’s rights.

Celtics guard Jaylen Brown was complimentary of his now former teammate.

“I thought he probably should have gotten a little bit more money but you know how that goes,” said Brown. “He probably should have been starting, he is a starter but he came off the bench for us and he played really well all year on a good team so I’m happy for Kelly. Miami has a good team and I wish him nothing but the best.”

Brown said Olynyk’s easy-going personality will be missed in Boston’s locker room and noted how Olynyk stepped up in a big spot with a 26 points in the Celtics’ Game 7 triumph over the Wizards.

Olynyk averaged 9.5 points, 4.8 rebounds in 20 minutes a game for the Celtics. He played four seasons for the Celtics, drafted with the 13th overall pick in the 2013 NBA draft.

Cheap Authentic Football Stitched A.J. Green Jerseys

A.J. Green and his Cincinnati Bengals suffered professional setbacks in 2016.

One year after being one drive away from their first postseason win since 1991, the Bengals missed the playoffs for the first time in six seasons. Green didn’t even make it to the end of year after suffering a season-ending hamstring injury in Week 11.

But following an offseason of rehab and retooling, for Green and the Bengals, respectively, the wide receiver has his eyes back on the ultimate prize and is using his long-time rival as motivation.

“Look at the year Julio Jones had,” Green told Geoff Hobson of the team’s website. “He was coming off an 1,800-yard season and he had what last year? [1,409.] That’s because they put all the weapons around him.
“He still made the same plays he made when he had the 1,800 yards, but when they double-teamed him they had [Mohamed Sanu] and [Taylor] Gabriel. They’ve got to respect those guys. They went to the Super Bowl and Julio had [1,400] yards. It’s all about what you want. That’s the ultimate goal is to win the championship.”

Aside from being two of the top five receivers in the game today, Green and Jones are quite familiar with one another. The two came up through the recruiting trail together and both attended SEC powerhouses (Green to Georgia, Jones to Alabama). In the historic 2011 draft — 12 of the first 16 picks have been named to the Pro Bowl — Green and Jones went fourth and sixth, respectively.

So it’s hard to blame Green for looking over his shoulder, or rather straight ahead, at Jones as the Falcons receiver reached the Super Bowl while Green was rehabbing.

But what Green wishes to emulate about Jones’ 2016 campaign isn’t necessarily statistical in nature. The Bengals wideout would welcome a reduction in targets, as long as Cincinnati’s young toys (John Ross, Joe Mixon) are contributing toward another playoff run.

“That’s not who I am,” Green continued. “I know what I’m capable of doing. Never a doubt in my mind. Last year, I had opportunities and just took advantage of them. In 2015, I felt like I had a good season, but we had all the weapons. I didn’t have that many targets, but I still had good yardage.

“This year it’s just not me and Brandon [LaFell] and four young guys. Everything doesn’t have to be forced to me, which I like.”

Knicks’ next move? Free agency, Melo take priority over president search
The Knicks are focusing on free agency at the moment instead of finding Phil Jackson’s replacement. Here’s a look at where things stand.
The Knicks are assembling a list of candidates they’ll speak to. That process is ongoing, but Griffin has had an initial conversation with the Knicks and is expected to have more talks when the team moves to the next level of the process, sources said.

In addition, the team is not expected to ask for permission to speak with Toronto Raptors president Masai Ujiri, sources told Shelburne.

The team announced Wednesday morning that it mutually agreed to part ways with Phil Jackson as president.

The Knicks completed a disappointing 31-51 season in April and missed the playoffs for the fourth straight year. They were 80-166 in Jackson’s three full seasons as team president, losing at least 50 games in each of them.

Griffin was Cleveland’s GM for three seasons and helped the Cavs to their first title in the 2015-16 season.
