PBA: Mike Harris 'Couldn t care less' about his 44 point, 27 rebound effort

Alaska Aces import Mike Harris shrugged off his 44-point, 27-rebound performance that helped his team get the win over the still winless Columbian Dyip at the Cuneta Astrodome.  The scoring forward did it all, unleashing the full repertoire of slashing lay-ups, controrted shots and a couple of three-pointers. He definitely looked like one of the best reinforcements in the PBA Governors' Cup. For him, the gaudy numbers were never really the story, instead focused on the win that helped them inch closer to a twice-to-beat advantage in the first round of the playoffs. "[I] couldn't care less," Harris said jokingly. "The only thing for me is the win. We played really bad the last game against Magnolia which is I mean credit to them they're a really good team." Just like what his coach Alex Compton said that the team was not playing at the level they were expected to, the swingman echoed the sentiments and was kind of disappointed at some instances of the game. "It happens in the NBA sometimes. Top teams play bottom teams and you play down and instead playing to that level.  Being one of the candidates for Best Import of the Conference, norming 28.50 points, 21.13 rebounds, and 2.13 assists per game in eight outings, the 35-year old said that chasing individual awards is already past him and he is just focused on the ultimate team goal. As an international journeyman, having stops in the NBA and multiple teams abroad, Harris has tallied quite the resume, including the NBA G-League MVP back in 2010, another MVP in Puerto Rico's top league, and a title in China.  "Because ultimately winning a championship, one person can't win a championship. And so, that's not been my focal point. Mine's been to see the guys on the team, see what's their strength and weaknesses are and continue to help them develop their weaknesses and turn them into strengths." When asked if he is already among the long list of great Alaska imports that include Sean Chambers, Diamon Simpson, Devin Davis, and the like, the 6'5 Harris mentioned that he has not proven himself at this part of the world, but would happily want to.  "And like I said, it's one game at a time. That list, I'm pretty sure it's great. Those guys won a championship so we go to the regular season and we lose in the finals, I wouldn't put myself in there." __ Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary......»»

Jewel Mische reveals she’s feeding baby Aislah from one breast only due to mastitis

Unlike most moms who say that breastfeeding their baby is a breeze, Jewel Mische's experience is different---but she is confident she will not give up. The Starstruck season 4 Ultimate Sweetheart revealed that she is exclusively feeding her baby daughter Aislah on one breast after contracting mastitis, which she necessitatedbreast surgery.

James captivates crowd in his Los Angeles Lakers debut

By Bernie Wilson, Associated Press SAN DIEGO (AP) — LeBron James rubbed his hands in chalk powder at the scorer’s table, yelled “Yes!” to ecstatic fans in the first few rows and the Los Angeles Lakers’ new era was underway. Playing in the same arena where Magic Johnson made his regular-season debut for Los Angeles 39 years ago, James captivated the crowd from the start of the Lakers’ exhibition opener Sunday night (Monday, PHL time), a 124-107 loss to the Denver Nuggets. The opening tip came James’ way and he tapped it to fellow newcomer Rajon Rondo, who threw an alley-oop pass to JaVale McGee for the game’s first score. James missed his first shot, a turnaround fadeaway, but then made a no-look bounce pass from about 27 feet out to Brandon Ingram for a dunk. A minute later, James hit a long three-pointer. He finished with nine points, three rebounds and four assists in just more than 15 minutes. Lakers fans hope James’ arrival will turn things around after the worst half-decade in the franchise’s lengthy history. He left the Cleveland Cavaliers for a four-year, $153.3 million free-agent deal with the Lakers. He, Rondo and fellow veterans McGee, Lance Stephenson and Michael Beasley signed to team with the Lakers’ talented young core. James was the focus on and off the court Sunday night (Monday, PHL time). He was cheered from the minute he ran onto the court with his new teammates for warmups. He played the first eight minutes before being subbed out. When he came back in midway through the second quarter, he was greeted by cheers. As he stood near the scorer’s table during a video review, a fan yelled: “LeBron, we love you!” and the superstar responded with a hang-loose sign. Asked before the game what stands out about James, coach Luke Walton said, “His intelligence. He sees everything. He knows even before drills. He knows where he’s going. His work ethic. He’s out there pre-practice with the guys, post-practice with the guys. Taking care of his body in the weight room. “He’s the ultimate professional.” The Lakers’ regular-season opener is Oct. 18 (Oct. 19, PHL time) at Portland. Their home opener is two nights later against Houston. This was another big night for an L.A. basketball team at San Diego’s sports arena. In 1975, John Wooden coached his final game here, leading UCLA to its 10th NCAA title in 12 seasons. In 1979, Johnson made his NBA debut when Los Angeles beat the then-San Diego Clippers in the season opener. After Kareem Abdul-Jabbar made a buzzer-beating sky hook, Johnson hugged the center like they’d just won the championship. Seven months later, they did win the NBA title. Johnson is now the Lakers’ president of basketball operations and James was the prized acquisition of an offseason roster revamp. As a kid, Walton used to watch his father, Bill, play for the Clippers, although the Hall of Famer’s years in his hometown were largely marred by injuries......»»

UAAP: Coach Tab wants Dave Ildefonso to rethink going to NU

Is it wrong to grant a second chance? Or should one's decision be final? After a 72-46 thrashing by defending champs Ateneo Blue Eagles against the NU Bulldogs, head coach Tab Baldwin is asking NU rookie Dave Ildefonso to reconsider his move to Sampaloc and back to the confines of Katipunan. Ildefonso, a key member of the Blue Eaglets squad that triumphed over the NU Bullpups in the UAAP Season 80 juniors' basketball tournament earlier this year, made the move to the school where his dad, Danny, rose from an unknown probinsyano to being the greatest product the school has ever produced. Baldwin made it known at the post-game presser that the highly-sought recruit was courted heavily by his former alma mater, but to no avail. "I think that we wanted Dave to rethink that decision or perhaps in hindsight, wonder why he made that decision,": the American-Kiwi coach shared. The mentor then added that the win was a statement not only for Ildefonso, but to all recruits the school are scouting. "And we want that next recruit that it's in that position to remember today. And we'll continue to put performances on the court that hope for all of our recruits to take note. And think that this is the right place to be. Because they don't want to be on the other side." For the rookie Ildefonso's part, who joined his older brother, Sean in his move from Katipunan to Sampaloc, an opportunity to immediately shine was the ultimate reason why he left Ateneo. "I really want to play. So yung nakita ko sa Ateneo, it's a stacked lineup. Naisip ko na I won't be able to play, have a lot of minutes after two years, so pinag-isipan ko na I really need the exposure and siguro I didn't want to get that exposure from playing Team B, ganoon," the forward said in a previous interview at the ABS-CBN Sports office. "I really didn't want that. Sa tingin ko, I didn't really want to become a bench player."   __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary.     .....»»

Samsung announces Galaxy A7 with triple lens camera

The Samsung Galaxy A7 was revealed Thursday and its main claim to fame? Being the ultimate selfie phone. It's clear which feature Samsung feels most strongly about in this newest addition to the A series: despite its other innovative new features, Samsung outlined the triple lens camera in depth when presenting the new model.

The 24MP lens helps users take pictures in all lighting conditions, day or night, by allowing more light in by "combining four pixels into one pixel in low light conditions," notes the company.

Clippers hire Sports Illustrated writer Lee Jenkins

LA Clippers press release The L.A. Clippers have named Lee Jenkins Executive Director of Research and Identity, it was announced today by President of Basketball Operations, Lawrence Frank. Jenkins, one of the most decorated and respected journalists in sports, joins the Clippers after working for 11 years at Sports Illustrated as the publication’s lead NBA feature writer. In this new position, the first of its kind for any NBA team, Jenkins will use his extensive reporting background and unique interviewing style to contribute to the franchise’s amateur and professional scouting infrastructure, as well as help to enhance the Clipper experience. “Lee has spent his career profiling elite athletes, including most of the top players in the NBA,” said Frank. “Given Lee’s talent, knowledge, and credibility, we hope to blend his approach with our existing evaluation systems and highlight the personalities of our players. He is the NBA’s preeminent storyteller and adding him to the team is a reflection of Steve’s commitment to innovation and building a best-in-class organization.” At SI, Jenkins has written more than 70 cover stories for the world’s most renowned sports publication. In 2017, he was named the Jim Murray Memorial Foundation’s Journalist of the Year and won the Deadline Club’s award for prestige in sports writing. Jenkins is featured in this year’s edition of The Best American Sports Writing. Before joining SI in 2007, he spent four years at the New York Times, and before that the Orange County Register. “Throughout my career, I have consistently written stories about teams that win, and when you trace their course back to the beginning, the end seems almost inevitable,” said Jenkins. “The Clippers are in L.A. with Steve, Lawrence, Doc Rivers and Jerry West. They have a plan to create the ultimate environment for their players. As a writer, I ask questions from a variety of angles and assemble information in different ways, until a portrait of a person emerges. I am eager to bring that same process to the Clippers organization and add to their incredible team of evaluators and analysts. This team has the tools to build one of the great sports stories, and I’m excited to contribute.” A native of San Diego, CA, Jenkins is a graduate of Vanderbilt University......»»
