Authentic Cheap Golden State Warriors Swingman Jerseys Online

OAKLAND, Calif. — The Golden State Warriors lost to the Utah Jazz, 105-99, in a game that meant little to the hosts beyond building habits.

The Warriors had nothing tangible to gain but perhaps benefited from testing their mettle against Rudy Gobert at the rim (he was as brilliant as his 17 points, 18 boards and two blocked shots suggests). It was also the game that saw Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry get their first minutes together since Feb. 28, when Durant suffered an MCL sprain against the Washington Wizards.

Prior to that injury, the Durant/Curry dynamic had been workable, but not exactly living up to preseason expectations. Many thought they’d operate within a devastating pick-and-roll, and that has yet to happen. Still, the Warriors are successful with both on the floor, and Monday night gave us glimpses of how the two work together.

The beginning seemed to presage some deference, as Curry passed up an open 3-pointer to assist Durant on a midrange shot. Durant then returned the favor as he passed out of the post for a Curry 3 at the top of circle.

As the Warriors played lax defense, the fun stuff came later when Curry tossed an outlet to Durant that led to a Green dunk. The Warriors might have dominated this game had they finished more plays like that. Instead, they botched a few easy transition opportunities.

In the beginning, Curry didn’t need easy baskets to do his damage, as he was content to shell the Jazz from deep (28 points, six 3-pointers in 30 minutes of play). As the season winds to a close, Curry looks, subjectively, like last year’s MVP candidate — finally. That’s quite a positive sign for a Warriors team, obviously.

As for the Durant watch, he certainly looks to be in good condition on a couple of highlight plays. On one, Durant crossed over Dante Exum in transition and threw down a furious slam. On another, Durant zipped past Joe Ingles and dunked right in the face of Joel Bolomboy.

Durant looks athletic as ever, and the midrange jumper is accurate, but the 3-point shot isn’t quite there yet. Durant scored 16 points on 12 shots, but went 0-of-5 from deep. Despite more space than he had in Oklahoma City’s offense, Durant is shooting 28.4 percent from 3-point territory over his past 19 games dating back to Jan. 20.

That’s a luxury issue for a team that didn’t have to try on Monday because their 1-seed status is assured. The Warriors have a few kinks to work out, but theirs are smaller and less gnarled than what everyone else is going through.

Authentic MLB Cheap Yankees Flexbase Jerseys 2017 Online

ST. PETERSBURG — Wearing street clothes, Didi Gregorius leaned against the batting cage to watch the Yankees hit before Wednesday’s series finale against the Rays at Tropicana Field, saying goodbye to his teammates as they prepare to leave the Sunshine State.

“I really want to be here before May,” Gregorius said. “I don’t like sitting out. I’ve got to work my way back. I’m going based on the schedule, because I’m not the one making the rules.”
Full Game Coverage
Gregorius strained his right shoulder in a March 18 exhibition game while completing a double play for the Netherlands’ World Baseball Classic entry. He has thrown twice at 60 feet and will increase that distance to 90 feet on Thursday while swinging a bat one-handed.
“I don’t want to rush anything, because if something happens, it’s going to be even worse with a setback,” Gregorius said.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that he does not know how many Minor League games Gregorius will need before rejoining the active roster. The Yankees plan to have Gregorius remain behind at their player development complex in Tampa, Fla., for the next few weeks.
“I think the throwing program will go according to plan,” Girardi said. “I think the amount of games that he plays in is really how he feels, how he feels that he’s swinging, and everything is progressing. I think that timetable is probably a little bit more flexible than the throwing program.”
Fill-in shortstop Ronald Torreyes slugged the Yankees’ first homer of the season in Tuesday’s 5-0 win over the Rays, which Gregorius applauded. Gregorius said that it has not been difficult to observe the season’s first 18 innings from the sidelines.
“It’s not the first time. What can I say?” Gregorius said. “I’m still here. I still watch the games. It’s nothing different.”

Authentic Cheap Sacramento Kings Womens Jerseys

The Sacramento Kings have expressed exploratory interest in former Philadelphia 76ers general manager Sam Hinkie, according to league sources.

‎Sources told ESPN.com that Kings owner Vivek Ranadive sought and received permission directly from Sixers counterpart Josh Harris to speak with Hinkie.

Sources say Hinkie has long intrigued Ranadive, whose franchise has been thrust into a rebuilding mode not unlike Philadelphia’s status under Hinkie in the wake of trading DeMarcus Cousins to New Orleans.

Neither Hinkie’s level of interest in a position with Sacramento, nor the sort of role Ranadive envisions for Hinkie in a front office currently run by popular former Kings player Vlade Divac, was immediately known.

On Monday night, the Kings said they are not in the process of hiring Hinkie.

“The Kings are not hiring Sam Hinkie and have no plans to bring anyone in above Vlade,” the team said in a statement.

Sources say other undisclosed teams have also sought permission to speak to Hinkie, which is presently required based on the terms of the non-compete clause that took effect when he left Philadelphia in April 2016 and expires at the end of this season.

In his biggest move yet since taking over the Kings’ basketball operations late in the 2014-15 season, Divac agreed to trade Cousins and Omri Casspi to the Pelicans on the night of this year’s All-Star Game. In return, the Kings received No. 6 overall pick Buddy Hield and a first-round pick in June from New Orleans, in addition to veteran guards Tyreke Evans and Langston Galloway and a 2017 second-round pick.

When criticized for the package he got back for an All-Star center, Divac told the Sacramento Bee in late February: “That’s my job … and I take responsibility. And I totally understand why some fans would be upset. They supported DeMarcus and I like DeMarcus a lot. But I believe we are going to be in a better position in two years.

“I want to hear again from these same people in two years. If I’m right, great. If I’m wrong, I’ll step down. But if I go down, I’m going down my way.”

The Kings will have two first-round picks in June as long as they finish in the top 10 of the lottery, thus allowing them to keep a first-rounder they would otherwise be forced to convey to Chicago as part of another trade if it lands between No. 11 and 30.

Sacramento, though, will have to swap picks with Philadelphia if the Kings fare better than the Sixers in the May lottery, thanks to one of Hinkie’s best trades in his time in Philly.

With the Kings desperate to clear salary-cap space for what turned out to be the ill-fated signings of Marco Belinelli and Rajon Rondo in free agency, Hinkie acquired the rights to swap first-round picks with Sacramento in both 2016 and 2017 as well as the Kings’ fully unprotected first-round pick in 2019 through Philadelphia’s willingness to absorb the contracts of Carl Landry and Jason Thompson.

There was no need to swap picks in 2016 with the Sixers blessed to possess the No. 1 overall pick (Ben Simmons) and the Kings coming in at No. 8.

Football Greyson Lambert Georgia College Jersey

Quarterback Brice Ramsey and defensive back Reggie Wilkerson have decided to transfer from Georgia.

The program announced the two departures in a statement Tuesday. With Ramsey leaving, Georgia now only has two quarterbacks on scholarship entering spring practice. The other two are rising sophomore Jacob Eason and early enrollee freshman Jake Fromm.

Both Ramsey and Wilkerson are leaving the program as graduate transfers and will be able to play immediately at their next institution as long as they choose a field of study that Georgia does not offer.

Ramsey arrived at Georgia in 2013 as a highly regarded four-star quarterback out of Camden County. But during his time at Georgia, he never started a game and was beat out by Greyson Lambert for the position in 2015. After Lambert started the first game of the 2016 season, Eason stepped in as a starter, with Ramsey serving as a third-string quarterback this past year.

A person with knowledge of the situation said a potential landing spot for Ramsey is North Carolina, although no announcement has been made on where he will transfer to.

In addition to serving as a backup quarterback, Ramsey was started games as Georgia’s punter over the past two years. Appearing in 24 games total, Ramsey completed 45-of-74 passes for 582 yards and four touchdowns and punted 45 times for an average of 38.7 yards.

Wilkerson appeared in 20 games since enrolling in 2013, the same year as Ramsey. Both redshirted that first season.

“Our sincerest thanks to both Brice and Reggie for their contributions to the University in general and the Bulldog football program in particular over these past four years,” head coach Kirby Smart said in a statement. “We wish them all the best at their next destination and final season of eligibility.”

Cheap Team Puerto Rico Baseball Jerseys 2017

Team Puerto Rico remained scorching hot at the plate as it beat Team Italy, 9-3, on Sunday afternoon at Estadio Charros de Jalisco in Guadalajara, Mexico, to win Pool D and advance to the second round in San Diego.

Italy (1-2) has not been officially eliminated, but it needs some help to play in a possible tiebreaker game. Italy needs Mexico (0-2) to beat Venezuela (1-1) on Sunday night and also needs to win the runs/inning tiebreaker over either of those teams.

Rules for 2017 Classic
Carlos Correa smacked a three-run homer for Puerto Rico (3-0), while Astros teammate Carlos Beltran added a run-scoring double. Cubs infielder Javier Baez drove in the first run for the island team, Dodgers utility man Enrique Hernandez added two RBIs and Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor contributed a sac fly.
Puerto Rico completely dominated its competition in Pool D, outscoring its opponents, 29-7, and managing at least nine runs each game.
“I mean, every game, the offense was there, and the pitching was there, so the defense was there,” Puerto Rico manager Edwin Rodriguez said. “So we have a very good balanced team in the defense and the offense. We have a very good combination of veteran players and young players with a lot of energy. They are very committed to what we’re trying to do here, and they showed that on the field. So we are very confident moving forward.”

In fact, Italian manager Marco Mazzieri said he believes Puerto Rico has a good shot to reach the championship round in Los Angeles (March 20-22 at Dodger Stadium).
“I believe so because they are good, good pitching, good fielding, good baseball, and besides, I think that they have the passion that they need to play a tournament like this,” Mazzieri said. “They are very proud. They looked good. It’s a very strong team. It could be that — I think they’re going to be in the last four games in L.A.”
Not surprisingly, Puerto Rico also feels good about its chances in WBC ’17.

“From the beginning, from before we started practicing, once we started getting together and knew who the guys on the roster were, there wasn’t a doubt that we could get past this first round because our goal is to get to the finals, get to L.A. and win it all,” Hernandez said.
Italy scored three early runs, thanks to a two-run shot from Cubs Minor Leaguer John Andreoli in the first inning and a solo shot by Royals catcher Drew Butera in the second.

“Well, the quality of the game, the talent, they are young athletes with a lot of energy,” Rodriguez said. “Every one of them, one by one, the first, Carlos Correa, today against Italy, that three-run hit, Javier Baez the second night, and defensively, what we were expecting from them, every fan enjoyed it, definitely. I think this short three days here — because they are fans of each other, as well. They got together, and they played together.” More >

ITALY’S MAZZIERI TO RETIRE
Mazzieri told his team after the game that if it doesn’t play in the tiebreaker, Sunday would be his last game managing Italy.
“Well, it’s not about my career,” said Mazzieri, who has managed the Italian national team since 2007. “It’s about all the players that played for me, because wins and losses are in the books, but the emotions and the feelings, it doesn’t matter 20 years from now, it will be there forever. It’s about them, it’s not about me. I want to thank all of them through these 10 years that we had in different events and competitions because they made it special.” More >
QUOTABLE
“We’re really proud. We have a lot of pride, and what we showed is what we’re going to bring to the table. We’re going to bring a lot of energy, a lot of passion, and we’re going to play hard from the first pitch to the last pitch of the game. What you saw here is what you can expect from us.” — Hernandez, on Puerto Rico’s mindset
“I think we gave all out, and I hope that people watching from the stands appreciated that because these guys, they’ve been all out. They played with their heart, and not only with their heart, their souls and everything. We are pleased with our performances. We’re not so pleased with the outcome, but that’s sport.” — Mazzieri, on Italy’s showing

Jeremy Johnson Auburn College Jersey NCAA

So is it possible to make the call after 14 more practices? Don’t count on it.

“I doubt that. I doubt that very seriously, but at the same time Chip will have a recommendation and we’ll go from there.”

When he’s had a competition, Malzahn has named a starting quarterback at the end of spring practice just twice in his college coaching career, in 2010 with Cam Newton and 2015 with Jeremy Johnson. Over the past decade, both Malzahn’s personal history as well as Auburn’s has been for quarterback battles to carry into fall camp.

Still, a five-man field is not expected to last long into spring.

Stidham has fit in “just fine,” according to his roommate Chandler Cox, who said the former Baylor quarterback is constantly in the film room.

Malzahn admitted it’s not realistic and given Tyler Queen’s lack of playing time and that Malik Willis is a true freshman, their candidacies are the most likely to be short-lived. Even returning backup John Franklin III is only being assured one more practice at quarterback, with a position change sounding increasingly likely.

Woody Barrett has an appealing physical skill set but also lacks experience and seems to be a long shot, at best, but should stay in the rotation as to be a viable third option as offensive coordinator Chip Lindsey installs his offense and evaluates Auburn’s personnel.

“I would say it’s probably a little more accelerated pace to evaluate the quarterbacks,” Malzahn said. “The goal is after the first week that Chip will have a good idea of at least their talent and where they’re at from an experience or mental standpoint so he can make some decisions to start repping just a handful of guys instead of five. That’s by design.

“At the same time, he’s coming into this thing new and he wants to give everybody a chance to compete, to win jobs. That’s his approach.”

Robert Griffin III Baylor College Jersey NCAA

Browns quarterback Robert Griffin III is due to receive a $750,000 roster bonus on March 11 and the team isn’t saying at this point whether or not they will give it to him.

There’s no smokescreen from the Browns about their desire to find a long-term answer to their eternal need at starting quarterback and that quest will cover all avenues, so there wasn’t much need for coach Hue Jackson to delve into specifics about where the team might be looking for outside additions. He also didn’t give a hint about their thoughts regarding Griffin.

“Obviously, Robert’s on our roster right now,” Jackson said, via the Akron Beacon Journal. “I think there are some things that he did well, some things he needs to continue to improve at and we’re going to keep working with him until we don’t. He’s one of the three quarterbacks on our football team right now, and I’m very fortunate we do have some guys under contract right now to work with. But we’ve got to continue to get him better as he moves forward.”

The roster bonus isn’t so onerous that the Browns would be limiting themselves from doing other things if they paid it while waiting to see how other things play out on the quarterback front.

Lache Seastrunk Baylor College Jersey NCAA

COLLEGE STATION _Johnny Manziel annd Mike Evans have made the semifinal cut for the Maxwell Award, which is presented to the nation’s top offensive player.

The semifinalists were announced Tuesday. A&M was one of three schools nationally with two semifinalists. Oregon State is represented by quarterback Sean Mannion and receiver Brandin Cooks, while Baylor has quarterback Bryce Petty and tailback Lache Seastrunk.

The finalists will be announced Nov. 25.

Mannziel, last year’s Heisman winner, is third in the country in total offense (386.4 yards) and eighth nationally in passing yards (324.3 yards) per game.

Evans is second in the country in receiving yards per game at 137.6 yards per game.

NEW YORK — Kyle Lowry hoped the pain in his right wrist would go away so he could join the new-look Toronto Raptors on the court.

Now the goal is just to get back with them before the playoffs.

The All-Star guard will have surgery Tuesday to remove loose bodies from his wrist, and the Raptors say they hope he can return for the postseason.

Lowry, who has missed the team’s two games since returning from the All-Star break, is expected to be out four to six weeks, a source told ESPN’s Brian Windhorst.

Lowry took part in All-Star festivities in New Orleans, competing in the 3-point contest and playing the next night in the All-Star Game. But he said there’s been constant soreness since then and went Monday for a second opinion before the Raptors played the New York Knicks.

“It was one of those things where we didn’t know it was as serious as it was. That’s why you get second opinions as he did and we decided, he decided to have it done now hopefully to be able to have some time before the playoffs to get some games in,” Raptors coach Dwane Casey said.

The procedure will be done in New York.

Lowry has often played hurt, but this time the pain was enough that he said he couldn’t move his wrist in a certain position. He and the Raptors believed it would improve — Casey said Sunday the swelling was down and Lowry was day-to-day — though the point guard said he wasn’t surprised by the diagnosis Monday.

“I’m not surprised by anything. It was a little sore, I didn’t know what it was,” Lowry said. “It’s not really something you can say I’m surprised. I had no idea what it would be. I thought some local treatment may have helped it but it just wasn’t getting any better.”

Lowry is second on the team with his average of 22.8 points and leads the Raptors with 6.9 assists per game.

The Raptors were tied for third in the Eastern Conference entering their game against the Knicks, and falling to fourth or fifth would likely mean a second-round series with Cleveland, the team that knocked Toronto out in last year’s Eastern Conference finals.

Lowry hopes to be fully recovered by then. In the meantime, he’ll keep supporting Cory Joseph and Delon Wright, as Casey said the Raptors, who added forwards Serge Ibaka and P.J. Tucker before the trade deadline, won’t look for outside help.

“I know they got to hold down the fort,” Lowry said. “Unfortunately right now I’m leaving my teammates out to dry and I wish I wasn’t, but this is the circumstance that we have. So for me, all I can do is help my teammates off the floor.”

The Los Angeles Lakers and Philadelphia 76ers officially completed buyouts Monday with Jose Calderon and Andrew Bogut, respectively, and both players were released.

League sources told ESPN that Calderon is planning to sign with the Golden State Warriors provided he clears waivers Wednesday at 5 p.m. ET.

Sources say Bogut, meanwhile, will speak to officials from the Cleveland Cavaliers, San Antonio Spurs, Houston Rockets and Boston Celtics before choosing his next team. He is also scheduled to clear waivers Wednesday at 5 p.m. ET.

ESPN reported Sunday that the Cavaliers are the favorites to land Bogut after signing the Australian big man’s former Dallas Mavericks teammate Deron Williams on Monday. Two Mavericks sources told ESPN’s Tim MacMahon that they expect Bogut to choose Cleveland after he talks to interested teams.

EDITOR’S PICKS

Sources: Bogut seeks 76ers exit to join Cavs
Andrew Bogut — recently traded from the Dallas Mavericks — is negotiating his release from the Philadelphia 76ers and seeks to join the Cleveland Cavaliers, sources told ESPN.
Because both Calderon and Bogut were waived before Wednesday, they retain playoff eligibility with their next team.

Also waived Monday were New York Knicks guard Brandon Jennings and Brooklyn Nets forward Luis Scola.

Some key figures within the Warriors’ organization preferred Jennings, but the process was already too far along with Calderon.

ESPN’s Chris Haynes contributed to this report.
