Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski says he has no plans to retire

Mike Krzyzewski, at age 71, has no intention of ending his run as arguably the greatest college basketball coach of all time.

Monday on the College Hoops Today podcast, the Duke coach said: I have no plans to retire.

Wendell Carter Jr. believes he and Duke teammates will blow up in NBA

Starting with Kyrie Irving in 2011, Krzyzewski has had 14 one-and-done players — alll of whom were five-star recruits. Just last week, three Duke players were selected in the NBA Draft, including two in the top 10 (Marvin Bagley III second overall, Wendell Carter Jr. seventh overall).

Krzyzewski has the most wins in NCAA basketball history with 1,100 and has five NCAA titles.

Anthony Rendon, Trea Turner, Bryce Harper, Brian Goodwin and Mark Reynolds also homered for the Nationals, who set a season high for homers. Washington hadn’t homered while losing its last three, getting outscored 16-3 in those defeats.

We’re back, Soto said.

Rendon added two doubles and three RBI, and Harper also contributed three hits and three RBI. With his drive, Harper became the first NL batter to reach 20 homers.

We needed that, manager Dave Martinez said. Bats came alive and they came alive big.

Rhys Hoskins, Scott Kingery and Carlos Santana homered for Philadelphia. Kingery was a triple shy of the cycle.

The teams combined for 28 hits, including 16 for extra bases, on a steamy night in Philadelphia with the game-time temperature 90 degrees.

76ers coach Brett Brown on Markelle Fultz: ‘He’s not doing much playing right now’

Hanlen is known for the work he’s done with Bradley Beal, Jayson Tatum, and Joel Embiid.

Philadelphia selected the 20-year-old with the No.1 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, but Fultz’s performance in his first season with the NBA was underwhelming as he averaged 7.1 points with 3.1 rebounds and 3.8 assists.

Antetokounmpo later clarified on Twitter that the reply was in good fun and added that Bamba is a good kid and a good player who will be a good fit with the Magic.

Just wanted to clear things up because I enjoy sharing funny moments with my fans…Mo Bamba is a great player and Orlando gained an amazing talent! I wish him the best of luck with his future in this talented league!

Those who follow the Bucks guard/forward on social media are no strangers to his comical Instagram live videos and his recent adventures into American cuisine, which he has recapped on Twitter.

This was another example of what makes Antetokounmpo one of the most likable players in the NBA and a must-follow on social media.

Chandler averaged 10 points and 5.4 rebounds per game for the Nuggets last season. He also knocked down 35.8 percent of his 3-pointers and tallied a career-high 2.2 assists per contest.

Chandler was originally selected by the Knicks with the 23rd pick of the 2007 NBA Draft. He spent just under four seasons in New York before he was sent to Denver in the Carmelo Anthony trade.

The Nuggets finished 2017-18 with a 46-36 record and missed the playoffs for the fifth straight season. They selected former Missouri forward Michael Porter Jr. with the 14th pick of the 2018 NBA Draft.

Ranking Jones this highly requires a bit of projection, but for an athletic wing who averaged 2.4 steals and 1.2 blocks per 40 minutes as a freshman, there are reasons to buy-in.

Celtics’ Robert Williams misses flight, then first summer league practice

Boston Celtics first-round draft pick Robert Williams, who already had overslept an introductory conference call the day after the NBA draft, missed a flight to Boston and was not present for the start of the team’s summer league practices on Sunday.

I think everyone’s disappointed. You want to get everything off to a good start in the first day, but we’ll handle that internally and move forward.

Williams, who spurned an offer to be at the draft in Brooklyn to instead gather with family and friends at a Buffalo Wild Wings in his native Louisiana on draft night, admitted he overslept a conference call the next morning. A rescheduled call an hour later was plagued by poor sound quality.

Williams arrived in Boston last week and met with coach Brad Stevens, who reminded the athletic forward that, in order to reach his potential, he would have to work hard. Williams also chatted with All-Star forward Al Horford and later noted he plans to use the veteran big man as a guide.

Since the start of the 2016-17 season, Harden is averaging 10 assists per game. Only two other players have averaged more than 8.6 in that time.

He attempted 727 2-pointers and 722 3-pointers, one of three players to attempt 700+ 2- and 3-point field goals in a single season, and the first player to do so twice. His 722 3-point attempts are the fourth most in a single season in NBA history.

Harden hit 265 3-pointers this season, the ninth-most 3-pointers hit by a player in a single season. He has hit 971 3-pointers since the start of the 2014-15 season. Only Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson have hit more.

Harden took 727 free throws in 2017-18, his fourth time leading the NBA in free-throw attempts and fifth time in the last six years. Only three players have led the NBA in that category more often than Harden.

LaVar Ball to NFL Players: Stand Or Find New League!

LaVar Ball to NFL Players: Stand Or Find New League! More LaVar Ball To NFL Players: Stand Or Find New League! 1 6/2/2018 12:50 AM PDT LaVar Ball has weighed in on the NFL’s national anthem policy and it’s not exactly what you’d expect. It’s their league. If you don’t want to do it, get out their league.Don’t get it twisted, Ball says he thinks the NFL has gone too far in requiring players on the field to stand… but says the NFL has the right to create and enforce their own policies. That’s why I got my own league,Ball tells TMZ Sports… Do what I want.Ball is referring to his new junior basketball league, the JBA which he plans on running himself. So, what’s LaVar’s policy on the national anthem going to be in his league?

The astrologer-investor said he recognizes many people are skeptical of zodiac-inspired investments. But he said more traders rely on astrology to invest than many people realize. He estimated 20 percent of investors at large firms make decisions based on horoscopes — a figure based on his own hunches about human nature rather than a formal survey. More than half of young adults believe astrology is a science. Merriman himself has more than 1,000 clients and has been in the business for more than 40 years.

It doesn’t worry me that this is one of the best-kept secrets at this time, he said. If you look at the correlation of planetary cycles with human activity, you’d be amazed.

Annabel Gat, an International Society for Astrological Research-certified astrologer who writes for VICE media women’s website Broadly, recently encouraged readers to explore cryptocurrencies as Uranus moves into Taurus this week.

Matthews said in a tweet that he will have surgery on his bustednose after the swelling goes down.

Matthews is entering his 10th season with the Packers and has missed only six regular-season games over the past four seasons. The veteran linebacker is the final season of a five-year deal in Green Bay.

I don’t want him to take no pounding at all. I don’t want him to get in his head, Johnson said. I already understand the significance of that, just try to protect him as much as I can.

In retirement, Johnson said he has been able to satisfy some of his competitive juices through business, where he, Sims and Strayhorn have a start-up, Locker Room Consulting, that helps athletes manage and invest their money by connecting them with business professionals across the area.

He also consults as a receivers coach occasionally, last year he visited the Oakland Raiders and Miami Dolphins, has a handful of rental properties and is branching into commercial real estate development.

Brissett last year did an admirable job filling in for Luck, given he arrived via trade from the Patriots right before the season.

In Hoyer, Brady has one of the best backups of his career. Although the Patriots didn’t use a high draft pick on a surefire successor, there are a lot of things Etling does well that can be developed under Josh McDaniels.

Roethlisberger should get a little rejuvenation from the Steelers taking Rudolph as his possible heir apparent. Jones remains more than serviceable, but since he will be a free agent in 2019, the team should give Dobbs a shot to push him for the backup role.

Rivers watched another draft in which the Chargers didn’t pick his replacement, reaffirming that they think he has plenty left in the tank with a playoff-contending team around him again. Smith has turned into a solid No. 2, while Jones is in a good spot to keep tuning his big arm.

There’s no Colin Kaepernick here, but Wilson, who has yet to miss a start in his six-year NFL career despite his share of nicks, has a decent backup with starting experience in Davis. Between the rookie seventh-round draftee McGough and Morris, there’s more upside than you think.

Likes to shoot first. Or last. Or not at all. Has issues with accuracy and consistency. Can’t do anything Solo.

The best creepy monkey-lizard on the board.

He snuck into the No. 25 pick of the first round, but the Redskins chose to roll with Mark Brunell and Patrick Ramsey ahead of him as a rookie. In Year 2, Washington went with Brunell until it decided to promote Campbell in November.

Much like Smith, Campbell went through a slew of coordinators and didn’t have any scheme consistency early in his career. He developed into a checkdown-happy player, erring on the side of not pushing the ball downfield enough.

The Titans thought about sitting Young as a rookie, but Kerry Collins was awful through the first three games, prompting them to let loose the more dynamic athlete coming off a college national title run.

He rested on the athleticism too much because the efficiency and durability kept taking huge hits.

He also led the team to a Hoerner Cup championship in 2005 before stepping away for two years. Boehm returned for a second stint in 2007 and coached six seasons before stepping down.

In 2016, he was inducted into the New Jersey High School Ice Hockey Hall of Fame. Boehm will make $7,844 on top of his salary as a teacher.

He was the subject of an ongoing investigation by the state police, but the status of that investigation was not immediately available.

Brancatella and Lewkowitz, meanwhile, were subject to disciplinary action, sources said, but they were not terminated and will remain employed as teachers and assistant coaches.

If the star wide receiver skips the final four OTAs in Week 3, it will raise the level of will-he or won’t-he around whether Beckham shows up for a mandatory minicamp June 12-14.

If he doesn’t, the Giants could fine him about $70,000 under NFL rules. If he does, order will appear restored… for now.

Johnson said he kept his pending retirement secret from all but his family members during the 2015 season, though he did kind of let his fellow receivers in on his plans.

I remember there was a couple guys that retired right after the basketball season and I was telling the guys in the lunch room all the time, I was like, ‘Man, I’m done after this season,’ Johnson said. But they thought I was bullshitting them. And (when I finally retired) they were like, ‘Dog, you was for real the whole time, huh?’

Johnson closed his NFL career with a 10-catch, 137-yard, one-touchdown performance in a win over the Chicago Bears, and said Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford somehow caught wind of his plans before the game.

Vince Biegel ready to put his best foot forward in 2018

Vince Biegel isn’t new to the Packers, but he feels like he’s getting a new start. With both feet healthy and playing for a new defensive coordinator, the outside linebacker is ready to get 2018 off on a better foot.

Biegel, a fourth-round pick in 2017, injured his right foot in his first practice with the Packers. Doctors determined he needed surgery to repair a Jones fracture. That was his Welcome to the NFL moment.

We stuck to our game plan, Marner said. We got the puck in our hands quickly. We used our speed.

The Bruins’ power play -5 for 10 in the first two games — got its first opportunity early in the third only to see Pastrnak hit the post.

The Maple Leafs sealed it with 3:35 left when Marleau scored his second of the night on a 2-on-1 rush for his 70th career playoff goal.

We were on it all game, Marleau said. We had our legs, we were playing the right way.

According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Browns aren’t scheduled to bring Alabama defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick in for a visit either.

Teams have to conclude such visits by next Wednesday, and since they’re not scheduled yet, it’s hard to imagine them setting one up now. Of course, it’s also hard to imagine why you wouldn’t have contact with three players ostensibly in play with their second first-round pick.

They also didn’t conduct private workouts with any of the three, and didn’t interview Barkley as one of the 60 15-minute interviews at the Scouting Combine.

If they’re not interested in Fitzpatrick, it might only be because they’ve invested heavily in the secondary, acquiring Damarious Randall, T.J. Carrie and E.J. Gaines. But it’s difficult to determine what the plan is now, based on the travel plans they’ve made.

Boston was left fuming after center Riley Nash, who returned to the lineup after suffering an ear laceration on March 31, was ruled to have put the puck directly over the glass for a delay of game penalty with just over three minutes left in the first, even though replays suggested otherwise.

Toronto, which was 1 for 7 with the man advantage through the first two games, made the Bruins pay just 7 seconds later when van Riemsdyk scored his second goal of the series at 17:05 to give the Leafs their first lead of the series.

Report: Bengals to host Buccaneers in Week 8

According to a number of sources, the Bengals will host the Buccaneers in Week 8 of the NFL season at Paul Brown Stadium.

The Buccaneers accidentally released their full home schedule on their website, though it has since been removed. And, now their full schedule is out their on the internet.

The Bengals last played the Buccaneers in the regular season in a wild 2014 game that ended 14-13. That win helped the Bengals make it to the playoffs. All-time, the Bengals have a 4-7 record against Tampa Bay.

We’re optimistic that it’s going to be maybe on the shorter side of things, Boone said. It looks like he’s kind of passed every test so far.

Bird said earlier this month that he believed he’d be back to playing baseball sometime in May. His hope is that he won’t have a long rehab stint and will be back with the big-league team next month.

No, Labriola said when asked if franchise tagging Bryant is an option. Too much money for a receiver on a team that already has Antonio Brown.

Pittsburgh’s fourth round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, Bryant was an immediate home run threat, averaging 21.1 yards per reception as a rookie while catching eight touchdown passes. Bryant was just as dynamic in 2015, scoring seven total touchdowns while amassing 194 all-purpose yards in Pittsburgh’s playoff loss to the eventual Super Bowl champion Denver Broncos. Bryant’s career was temporarily halted in 2016 when he was suspended for the entire season for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy. Bryant was not full reinstated back into the NFL until the first week of the 2017 preseason.

Jose Calderon, who has never made it out of the first round before, went 0-for-3. Jeff Green, whose career scoring average of 11 points per game in the playoffs coming into Sunday was already underperforming compared to his career regular-season scoring average of 13.2 points, scored zero points on 0-for-7 shooting.

Former Giants G.M. sees quick turnaround, with Eli Manning at the helm

Perhaps no one knows Eli Manning or Dave Gettleman better than former Giants General Manager Ernie Accorsi.

So reading between the lines of some of Accorsi’s comments last night, it’s easy to arrange the tea leaves in a manner which suggests the Giants may not be inclined to use the No. 2 overall pick on a quarterback at all.

Miami on the other hand, was the fifth-slowest team in the league at 97.8 possessions per 48 minutes.

In the playoffs, pace generally slows down and teams need to execute in the half court. That seemed to be the case in the first half, as the Heat held the Sixers to 56 points on just 39 percent shooting from the field.

Then Brown inserted Ersan Ilyasova into the lineup at center in place of starter Amir Johnson to start the second half, hoping to create more space and unbalance the frontcourt matchups.

The Chargers did select Manning first overall, but he was traded to the New York Giants later that day. reported that Barkley never considered that option.

Sports Illustrated said in a statement to USA TODAY Sports that it continues to stand by its reporting in response to the Miale’s comments. 

Messages left with Miale by USA TODAY Sports were not immediately returned. The agency also counts Browns coach Hue Jackson as a client. 

This one is pretty simple: With Embiid on the court this season, the Sixers’ shot quality increased from practically every nook and cranny of the court, according to Second Spectrum’s quantified shot quality metric (qSQ). Of the 11 primary shooting spots that Second Spectrum tracks, Philly gets better shots at 10 of those shooting zones with Embiid on the court. That’s especially true from 3-point range, where the Sixers get better looks from all five spots with Embiid in the game.

Jets land their Plan B: Intriguing Bridgewater, thrilled McCown

The Jets saw top free agent quarterback target Kirk Cousins go to the Vikings on Tuesday for a record-breaking contract. They moved on to their fallback option agreeing on a deal to bring back Josh McCown and another deal to sign former Vikings first-round pick Teddy Bridgewater.

The Jets were all-in on Cousins and made him a big offer on Monday, believed to be more than the three-year, $84 million fully guaranteed deal he got from the Vikings. But once he decided to visit Minnesota first, the Jets knew they were out. Cousins can officially sign the contract on Wednesday when the new league year opens.

Bridgewater is a fascinating signing. Since suffering a gruesome knee injury in August 2016, Bridgewater has not played other than some garbage time at the end of Week 15 in December.

The 25-year-old could be a steal for the Jets if he recovers from the knee injury. He was a first-round pick of the Vikings in 2014 and made the Pro Bowl in 2015, a season in which the Vikings went to the playoffs.

The two sat next to each other for the match, and were seen shaking hands and chatting while taking in the action.

Beckham, 42, who is bringing a team of his own to Miami, was also seen talking with the president of the Paris team, Nasser Al Khelaifi, and his former Manchester United teammate Gary Neville.

Hadid, 21, was in the City of Light for Paris Fashion Week.

Both of the stars also posted footage of the game on their Instagram stories.

NFL star Odell Beckham Jr. and DJ Snake were also seen at the match.

With Melky Cabrera at the plate, Clippard threw a wild pitch and then issued another walk to load the bases. Then, with Jose Abreu up, Clippard got ahead, 0-2 and Sanchez went to the mound for visit number five.
