D-League: Akari-Adamson a win away from outright semis seat

Akari-Adamson moved a win away from clinching an outright semifinals berth in the 2018 PBA D-League Aspirants' Cup with a 101-83 victory over Perpetual Thursday at Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig. The Falcons caught fire in the fourth quarter behind Egie Boy Mojica as they put the game beyond doubt with a 31-point finishing kick. "We became aggressive. We we're to lax early on," remarked coach Franz Pumaren on that fourth period turnaround. Mojica went 5-of-6 from downtown, three of those coming in the payoff period to finish with 15 points and three rebounds. Also helping Akari-Adamson in the takeover was its overall shooting from beyond the arc at 10-of-20.

UAAP Softball Finals: Adamson overpowers UST to force do-or-die

Seven-time defending champions Adamson Lady Falcons showed why they have the vise grip over the tournament with an 8-5 victory over the UST Tigresses in Game 2 of the UAAP Season 80 Softball Finals at the Rizal Memorial Baseball Stadium Friday morning. With the win, they force a do-or-die Game 3 against UST, whom they have faced for the third straight season. The Lady Falcons used an explosive sixth inning, scoring five runs with two outs, to break the tie against a UST team that drew first blood. Krisha Cantor broke the deadlock as she was sent by Leslie Benabaye with an RBI single. Riezel Calumbres and Benabaye then both completed the diamond courtesy of a Delyrose Covarrubias 2-RBI-double. Covarrubias and Edna Severino then added fuel to the fire that was Adamson's offense, from an 2-RBI-double by Flor Pabiania to extend the lead to five runs, 8-5, a far cry from their five hits in Game 1. Blu Girls and Adamson head coach Ana Santiago knew that the sixth inning was to be their biggest possession, and encouraged her wards to score, no matter the circumstance. "Yun yung sinasabi ko sa kanila, pag naka-score tayo sa six innings, panalo tayo. Naging inspiration nila yung sinabi ko. Si Rusia kanina, back-to-back strikeout. Sabi ko sa kanya, 'kailan ka lalaban?' Sinagot niya, 'Ngayon na, coach'. Inasahan ko yun at nag-deliver siya." UST actually was in the driver seat in the opening moments of the game, with CJ Roa nailing a 3-run homer that put UST ahead in the bottom of the first inning, 3-0. The defending champions then were able to slowly chip off the Tigresses' lead, with runs from Jeanette Rusia and Cantor, sent home by Calumbres and Benabaye, respectively. UST then tried to trim the lead with two runs in the bottom of the seventh inning, but it was all but over for them. Santiago admits that her team was rattled after the home run, but motivated her players by using their minds and focus on the bigger picture. "Isipin mo sa ganitong level ng play papaluan ka ng ganun tapos yung kalaban namin yung pitcher na hindi namin mapaluan. Pero yung mga bata hindi pumayag na hindi kami lalaban. Gusto talaga nila na mag-square one kami," the multi-titled coach said. "Nung naramdaman ko yun, kahit mag-score sila ng three runs, naniwala sila na kanila ito. Walang imposible, yun yung power of mind." Game 3 for all the marbles will be on Tuesday, 9 a.m., at the same venue.

Jerry West: This game is going to overtake all the other sports

By Steve Aschburner, NBA.com LOS ANGELES – Jerry West’s longevity is surpassed only by his excellence, which is surpassed only by his credibility, which is surpassed only by his legacy, which is surpassed only by his continued relevancy, which is surpassed only by his humility, which is surpassed only by his longevity... Aw, you get the idea. The man known as “Zeke From Cabin Creek” early in his NBA playing days, as “Mr. Clutch” by the time he was putting the finishing touches on a Hall of Fame career and as “The Logo” for much of the league’s past half century got credit for only 81 steals in the 14 seasons he played for the Los Angeles Lakers from 1960-1974. The reason: that stat only got tracked starting in West’s farewell season. But he racked up No. 82 by stealing the show with his acceptance speech of the NBA’s Lifetime Achievement Award presented at the annual All-Star “Legends Brunch” at the L.A. Convention Center. West’s appreciation of NBA history, gratitude for his place in it, optimism for the game’s future and competitive fire all shone through when he stood before the audience filled with both his peers – some of the greatest players ever – and fans sampling for the first time one of All-Star Weekend’s most reliable highlights. Three months shy of his 80th birthday, West – who won one NBA title as a player, eight more as an executive with L.A. and Golden State, and as a consultant now to the Clippers, had input into that team’s blockbuster trade of star Blake Griffin – was one of four former Lakers honored per the brunch program’s tradition of recognizing men who associated with the host city. James Worthy received the Global Ambassador Award, Bill Walton was presented with the Hometown Hero Award and Magic Johnson was named the 2018 Legend of the Year. In introducing West, NBA commissioner Adam Silver said: “One thing people know about Jerry is, he pulls no punches. And so, Jerry is someone I know I can count on. When there’s things happening in the league, Jerry will tell me exactly what I should know about today’s game and what’s happening with today’s players.” West used some of his time on stage, though, to acknowledge and thank a fifth Los Angeles legend: HOFer Elgin Baylor. In fact, he got emotional, pausing to collect himself while praising his former teammate and dear friend, long considered one of the most underrated players in NBA history. Baylor got to the Lakers two years before West, before they left Minneapolis, and was an 11-time All-Star from 1958 to 1971 who still ranks third all-time at 27.4 points per game. “Elgin, I won’t ever forget the way you treated me when I came here,” he said to Baylor, who was seated at a nearby table. “Amazing player but more amazing man. I remember when I was in college, never being able to watch the game, no TV, and of course we didn’t have one in my house. But I used to hear about this guy and I thought ‘Oh my God, I’m going to have a chance to play with him.’ “He’s my hero. I used to watch him practice, I’d watch him out of the corner of my eye. Just the way he conducted himself with people. Just one classy man.” West talked up others in the room whose lives he touched, and both lauded and encouraged current NBA players in their performances and in their commitments off the court. “You can be leaders because you have a voice. Don’t ever pass that up. Don’t ever lose your voice,” he said. “I really believe in humility. I also believe in civility.” After talking about the NBA’s astounding growth over the run of his equally astounding career, West’s competitiveness flickered through once more. “I’m going to say this – and I don’t like to say things that are controversial – but this game is going to overtake all the other sports,” he said. Comedian Billy Crystal, a long-suffering Clippers fan, opened the program with a hoops-themed monologue. “When I first started going to Clippers games, there was me, [broadcaster] Ralph Lawler and the players,” Crystal said. “A triple-double meant there were three couples in the stands. ... Watching all of this talent, I was glued to my seat – because that’s the way the Clippers would keep you from leaving.” Crystal provided some imagery when he likened pro basketball’s legendary stars to great musicians. “Wilt in jazz terms was a big band. He was powerful, huge, big brass section,” Crystal said. “Then Elgin came into the league and his style changed the way the game was played. ... He was cool, improvisational jazz. Then came the Big O [Oscar Robertson], who was the Dave Brubeck of basketball – easy but powerful and complex rhythms all at the same time. “That led the way to Dr. J [Julius Erving] and Kareem – Doc was [John] Coltrane, Kareem was Thelonious Monk with a little bit of Duke Ellington. ... Magic was unbelievable [and] brought us to Motown. Also, the country sounds of Mr. Larry Bird. Then came Michael – I can’t remember his last name but he played for the White Sox. He played to the beat of his own drummer. “Tim Duncan was not jazz; Tim Duncan was Beethoven. Then came the rappers, Shaq and [Allen] Iverson. And other virtuosos like Kobe [Bryant], LeBron [James] and Steph [Curry] and KD [Kevin Durant], [Russell] Westbrook. And the best goes on and on and on.” Silver, though, might have had the morning’s best line. In a shout-out to Magic Johnson – who has been fined $550,000 in the past six months for violating league tampering rules in talking publicly about Oklahoma City’s Paul George and Milwaukee’s Giannis Antetokounmpo – the commissioner said: “Magic, thank you for paying for the brunch today.” Steve Aschburner has written about the NBA since 1980.

Book is Trump White House’s nightmare

What were they thinking? This is the thought that occurs to the reader when author Michael Wolff explains his almost unfettered access to the White House of US President Donald J. Trump in his book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" (Henry Holt and Company, New York, 2018, 321 pages). Wolff, an award-winning journalist and author, basically talked the Trump people into letting him hang around in the White House to write a book they assumed would be a positive view of the Trump presidency. They were wrong. "Shortly after Jan. 20, I took up something like a semipermanent seat of a couch in the West Wing," Wolff writes. "Since then I have conducted more than 200 interv...Keep on reading: Book is Trump White House’s nightmare.....»»
