Zion Williamson’s NBA debut a ‘dream come true’ in every way except Pelicans’ loss

first_imgWilliamson started slowly before scoring 17 straight points for New Orleans in the fourth quarter, including four stunning 3-pointers, to finish with 22 points, seven rebounds and three assists.The former Duke sensation was keen to look toward a first victory, though, with the Nuggets up next for the Pelicans on Friday.MORE: How Zion Williamson’s debut compares to LeBron, MJ, other NBA greats”It was good to get out there, but I didn’t get the outcome that I wanted,” Williamson said. “… It was everything I dreamed of except for the losing part. The energy the crowd brought, the energy the city brought, it was electric. I’m grateful they did that.”So, it was a dream come true to finally get out there, but, at the end of the day, I wanted to win, so just got to look at the next game.”. @Zionwilliamson didn’t miss from distance, going 4-for-4 in the fourth quarter during his 17-point scoring stretch! pic.twitter.com/vylmrTvSLD— New Orleans Pelicans (@PelicansNBA) January 23, 2020Williamson, who described primitive “MVP” chants as “different,” said he felt “fine” after “that long rehab process,” but he could not answer when he would be able to play a full game.”Personally, I didn’t want any restrictions, but I’m not a doctor or trainer,” he said. “I’ve just got to listen to them.”And the teenager admitted some annoyance at having to bow out for Brandon Ingram with over five minutes remaining as the team manages his recovery.”I’m 19, honestly,” he explained. “In that moment, I’m not thinking about longevity. I’m thinking about winning that game. It was very tough.” Williamson acknowledged some benefits of his layoff, though, believing his stunning run of 3-pointers came due to his limited practice time in recent months.”When you’re not able to move around, do athletic movements for a while, the only thing you can do is shoot spot-up jumpers,” added Williamson, who hit all four of his 3-pointers.”I guess that was a result of that.” Zion Williamson enjoyed a “dream” NBA debut, but was frustrated he could not mark it with a Pelicans win.Finally fit to play for the first time this season after knee surgery, the No. 1 overall draft pick — viewed as a generational talent — played 18 minutes as the Pelicans lost, 121-117, to the Spurs.last_img read more

Patrick Mahomes’ baseball career was filled with potential

first_imgMORE: Super Bowl 54 picks, predictions from SN’s expertsBut the younger Mahomes is in a class of athlete by himself: We’ve seen what he can do with a football on the field with 300-pound defensive linemen barreling down on him, but long before he was taken No. 10 overall in the 2017 NFL Draft, he was prepping the be a second-generation baseball star.Patrick Mahomes’ baseball careerMahomes was a three-sport athlete in high school: He was a top recruit in both football and baseball, with basketball his third sport. As a pitcher for Whitehouse High School in Texas, Mahomes boasted a mid-90s fastball with the makings of a plus curveball which is, well, pretty good, to say the least. It’s rare to find players who throw with that much controlled velocity coming out of high school.Mahomes was also an outfield prospect who boasted raw power, some of which you can see in this video:As an upper-tier prospect in the 2014 MLB Draft, Mahomes could have gone relatively high, but his strong commitment to attending Texas Tech University — and his love for football — warded off teams, and he took a sizeable drop in the draft. But the Tigers decided to take a chance on Mahomes, drafting him in the 37th round of the 2014 MLB Draft. It was a low-risk, high-reward pick — Mahomes didn’t sign, and he honored his commitment to Texas Tech, where he went on to play football.Mahomes’ baseball days weren’t yet finished: He continued to play baseball during his first year at the university, though he appeared in just three games with the Red Raiders. Mahomes had no hitts in two at-bats and gave up three earned runs as a reliever in those three games. He would leave the baseball team before his sophomore year, as he wanted to focus solely on football.Patrick Mahomes’ no-hitterBut there was probably no clearer indication of the potential in Mahomes’ right arm than in March 2014, when his Whitehouse High School faced off against Mount Pleasant. It was a spectacle for a few different reasons. Patrick Mahomes could have been baseball’s next great star.That shouldn’t come as a surprise. The budding superstar quarterback for the Chiefs is a genetic freak, after all, and pro sports are in his bloodline: His father, Pat Mahomes, was a veteran MLB pitcher and was drafted in the sixth round of the 1988 MLB Draft. The elder Mahomes spent 11 seasons pitching in the big leagues but never quite lived up to the top-talent billing, throwing to a 5.47 ERA while spending time with the Twins, Red Sox, Mets, Pirates, Rangers and Cubs.  Mahomes, a top baseball recruit, threw a no-hitter and struck out 16 batters in a 2-1 victory. The only run Mount Pleasant would scratch across on Mahomes was via a wild pitch, which was preceded by two walks and a sac bunt. (Don’t bunt, kids. Home runs get you paid.)But Mahomes wasn’t the only future MLB talent in the game: In the opposite dugout, future MLB hurler Michael Kopech took the ball for Mount Pleasant. Kopech was known as a nasty fireballer himself, throwing as high as 98 mph, and would be drafted by the Red Sox in the 2014 MLB Draft, a first-round pick. Later, Kopech would be part of the package that sent Chris Sale to Boston.But Mahomes wouldn’t be done for the day: That night, Whitehouse played against Princeton High School, and Mahomes would go 3 for 4 with a double, a home run and three RBIs in the contest. He finished a triple shy of hitting for the cycle.last_img read more

Manziel glad for other rookies as he waits to play

first_imgCleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel (2) warms up as Brian Hoyer (6) watches before a preseason NFL football game against the Chicago Bears, Thursday, Aug. 28, 2014, in Cleveland. (AP Photo/Tony Dejak)BEREA, Ohio (AP) – Blake Bortles is starting for the Jaguars. So is Teddy Bridgewater with the Vikings. Johnny Manziel, meanwhile, continues to serve as Brian Hoyer’s backup with the Browns.It’s been a surprising turn of events for the three rookie quarterbacks that were drafted in the first round.“I’m happy for those guys because they’re getting an early chance to play,” Manziel said Friday following practice. “That could have been my chance here, but it isn’t. Those are their situations and this is mine.“It’s hard to guess how things are going to play in the future, but I think it’s all about how you handle it when you’re not on the field. That’s really what sets you apart.”Johnny Football will again be holding a clipboard Sunday when Cleveland plays at winless Jacksonville.The Browns (3-2) have won two straight and Hoyer is having a breakout season at age 29. Their collective success has limited Manziel’s game action to five plays, the last of which occurred on Sept. 21 against Baltimore.“With the reps he gets in practice, Johnny has been effective,” Cleveland coach Mike Pettine said. “He gets a couple reps with the twos running our stuff, and gets in there with the scout team running the other teams’ offenses. He’s good.”Manziel’s scout team duties had him mimicking Bortles, who was the No. 3 pick out of Central Florida. The Jaguars turned to him three games ago after Chad Henne presided over three blowout losses.Manziel, the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner said he did his best to become Bortles on the field.“You can definitely tell in Jacksonville’s offense that there is some stuff that they’ve put in for Blake to utilize his mobility,” said Manziel, who has thrown one incomplete pass and handed off four times. “I tried to give them a good look doing that.”A fourth rookie quarterback – second-round pick Derek Carr – has been starting all season for Oakland, which will play at the Browns next week.Manziel continues to top all first-year players in jersey sales but insists that he isn’t jealous of his peers. The former Texas A&M standout said learning the complex offensive system of Cleveland coordinator Kyle Shanahan has been more difficult than he expected.“What we do here wasn’t anything that I was asked to do at A&M, so I knew it would take some time,” the No. 22 overall selection said. “Now, knowing that some of the ideas spill over into the next week, I feel like I can study that. I’m a lot more honed in, which makes me a lot more comfortable.”Manziel’s comfort level has become so high, even around Hoyer, that the latter’s impending free agency hasn’t been discussed in the quarterbacks room.Hoyer earlier this week said that he wanted to play in Cleveland but also somewhere where he would be on the field. Hoyer’s agent later added that Manziel wouldn’t be a factor in Hoyer’s free agency process.Manziel said everything while play out, but the situation hasn’t been on his mind.“Brian is playing very, very well and he does everything the right way,” Manziel said. “To sit back and watch him for as long as this may be, I think it’s beneficial for me.”NOTES: Browns C Alex Mack (left fibula fracture) was placed on injured reserve, one day after undergoing surgery to repair a broken leg. . Pettine said rookie RB Terrance West, who was a healthy scratch last week against Pittsburgh, will be active in Jacksonville. . DE Billy Winn (quadriceps) and S K’Waun Williams (concussion) were declared out for the Jaguars game.last_img read more

Calleja: “Theirs is a strange streak, they always compete”

first_imgAlthough I hope they remain at a good defensive level, since that is one of their best virtues.Win in San Mamés a weight victory:It is an important game, we are aware that a victory brings you closer to the goal and also winning away from home gives you a plus. You also play with a rival who was a direct rival at the start, so winning will be important for sure.Funes Mori statements ensuring that you want to leave at the end of the season:I like to talk things in private, so what I have to say I tell them. The player makes some statements of discontent in a media outlet in his country, and in the context of the interview, he makes unfortunate and dislike statements. But I think that it is not necessary to give it more importance, since Ramiro has worked well, he has not given any problem and he is a great professional, so I do not think he will harm what he has said on a daily basis. Today he has worked well and I am sure he will do it every day without problems. No one is assured that he will play when he signs a contract, and he is aware that there are partners who are ahead. Expect rotations in Athletic:They have a final one step, but the most important game is Sunday, so I am convinced that Garitano will bet to get the best eleven in the face of this match.Desire to recover good tone away from home:We are looking forward to recovering good feelings away from home after the defeat of the Wanda. We have the idea of ​​staying in the fight for the top positions. But every day the matches are important, since there are fewer days left, and now every match is final.Game idea:The idea we have is the same, to dominate with possession and when we reach three quarters of the field be more vertical and deeper and more incisive in those final meters.Athletic streak:It’s strange the streak they carry. In addition a team that the first round has been very good, a team with a great defense and one of the least goals of the championship. A team that always competes well, in fact there has been a lot of equality and many draws in that bad run of ten games. To this it is added that at home they are a team that puts the rivals in maximum difficulty, so it is strange that they have not won in those ten games. It is a streak that I don’t trust, since they will be hurt and more motivated than ever.Coronavirus:We are aware of what is happening, we are aware, and it is clear that the first thing is health. Therefore, we must follow the indications of medical and health services, as prevention is better than cure. Do not panic or alarm, unless they tell us otherwise, but we must take the necessary precautions.They are changing defenses:They have been varying their defense with three back or four, they have been changing and it is something we are seeing and analyzing. Although of them right now I don’t know if he is going to mount one defense or another, but we are working and aware of those possibilities.last_img read more

Provincial politicians back at legislature today

first_imgB.C. politicians are heading back to the legislature today and Christy Clark is expected to face tough questions about what her critics call unfulfilled economic goals.The Premier vowed, back in September 2011 that B.C. would be among the countries top two provinces for both job and economic growth by 2015, but according to the Canadian Press, recent Stats Canada data shows B.C. is currently fifth spot among the provinces with job creation stuck at half a per cent.However, while conceding economic progress can be a rough ride in her annual address last Friday to the UBCM convention the Premier painted a more positive economic picture.- Advertisement -Much of it focussed on government leadership, and while again she again was critical of the doom and gloom forecasters, she also made no secret of her dislike, for the fence-sitters, and that took her to the construction of the Site C dam.“But we cannot forget about the importance of vital infrastructure for our province and communities. Right now we have more than $7 billion worth of projects out in the field. That’s bridges, hospitals, transit, schools, things that are happening in all of your communities. B.C. Hydro will be investing $2.4 billion a year every year for the next ten years. That’s dams, transmission lines, it’s distribution, and it’s jobs all over the province. When you consider all of those projects it adds up to 150,000 jobs over ten years from infrastructure. Site C alone is going to create 10,000 of those jobs.I know that there are some of you in this room and outside it that oppose building Site C as much as I passionately support doing it. I understand your position. What I don’t understand is the position of those who say they don’t have the courage to take a position. It is not leadership to say on the biggest infrastructure project in British Columbia’s history you’re just not sure.”Advertisementlast_img read more

Exclusive – Arsenal are only fighting for third or fourth, claims Parlour

first_imgFormer Arsenal midfielder Ray Parlour has told talkSPORT the club can only hope to finish third or fourth at best in the Premier League this season.The Gunners snatched a 2-2 draw with Hull at home on Saturday thanks to Danny Welbeck’s injury time equaliser and it means they are already 11 points behind league leaders Chelsea and six behind nearest challengers Manchester City.It is widely believed Jose Mourinho’s and Manuel Pellegrini’s respective sides are battling it out for the title and Parlour is of the same view.“I think Arsenal are fighting for third or fourth place,” he told the Weekend Sports Breakfast.“You look at Manchester City and Chelsea and they’re in a different league compared to Arsenal. They’re so far above Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Spurs. I think all these teams are fighting for two places, they’re fighting for third and fourth.“Chelsea grind out results. They’re so clinical in the way they get results and Manchester City stand a great chance, particularly if [Sergio] Aguero can keep playing like that. He was fantastic [against Tottenham], absolutely different class.“Those two teams are far apart from Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United and Spurs, so that’s what Arsenal are left fighting for.”last_img read more
