Serena Williams: Young boys need domestic abuse education

NEW YORK --- Serena Williams says the conversation about stopping domestic abuse shouldn't just center around women, but men as well. The tennis superstar says education about domestic abuse should start when men are young boys. "I think expanding the conversation to men and expanding the conversation to young boys, it's so important," she said in an interview on Wednesday. "This is a human rights issue. We should all be treated the same. We should be treated equal. With domestic abuse, it doesn't care what color you are, what background you're from," she continued. "It's important to get the message out there --- to our young men, to our boys, to our daughters --- to ...Keep on reading: Serena Williams: Young boys need domestic abuse education.....»»

Orlando drafts 7-footer Bamba out of Texas with sixth pick

ORLANDO, Florida --- The NBA draft featured several big men on Thursday night, and the biggest was Mohamed Bamba. The Orlando Magic drafted the 20-year-old center with the sixth overall pick. The young man from New York City who played one year at Texas joins a team that went 25-57 last season and has averaged only 26 wins over six straight losing seasons. "I'm not going to sit here and say things are going to change overnight," Bamba said. "It's going to take more than one person and I actually believe that with the players around me, we have the right pieces to make the organization successful." After a run of drafts that have helped to turn the NBA into a perimeter-ori...Keep on reading: Orlando drafts 7-footer Bamba out of Texas with sixth pick.....»»

US First Lady Melania Trump criticized for wearing ‘I don’t care’ jacket in border visit

The name "Trump" has been the object of ire of many these past few days, whether it's US President Donald Trump, presidential daughter Ivanka Trump and, now, First Lady Melania Trump. More and more people have been speaking out against President Trump for his "zero tolerance" immigration policies that saw thousands of young immigrant children and babies torn away from their parents at the US-Mexico border. The parents and children have been detained inside cage-like shelters in Texas. Daughter Ivanka was slammed by writers and personalities just yesterday for a tweet she made that had people calling her out for her "complicity" and fecklessness in the immigration crisis. Today, wife...Keep on reading: US First Lady Melania Trump criticized for wearing ‘I don’t care’ jacket in border visit.....»»

Malaysia reopens murder case linked to ousted Prime Minister Najib Razak

Malaysian police have reopened an investigation into the grisly murder of a young Mongolian woman in 2006 which has been linked to the country's ousted leader, reports said Friday. Altantuya Shaariibuu was shot dead and her body blown up with military-grade plastic explosives near Kuala Lumpur. The murder was the most shocking aspect in a scandal involving allegations that an associate of recently toppled Prime Minister Najib Razak arranged huge kickbacks for the purchase of French submarines in 2002. The case captivated Malaysia for years and there have long been allegations that Najib -- defence minister at the time of the deal -- and his wife Rosmah Mansor were involved.

Modern bigs to dominate 2018 Draft

By Steve Aschburner, NBA.com NEW YORK – There was a ballroom full of NBA centers in midtown Manhattan Wednesday – not one of them eager to follow in the sizeable footsteps of Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Moses Malone, Shaquille O’Neal or Dwight Howard. In fact, on the very day that the top prospects for the 2018 Draft were made available to the media – a talent pool particularly long on length this year – Howard was on the move again, in a reported deal from Charlotte to Brooklyn that will land the eight-time All-Star with his fourth team in four seasons and sixth overall. That bit of news – of an old-school NBA big man being shuffled off again,  primarily for salary-cap purposes, into what looks to be basketball irrelevancy – served as a counterpoint to the young giants just starting out. There will be plenty of guards and forwards selected in the first round Thursday at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, including Michael Porter Jr., Trae Young, Collin Sexton, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Mikal Bridges, Kevin Knox and Lonnie Walker. But the lottery will be top-heavy with big men, with Deandre Ayton, Marvin Bagley III, Mo Bamba, Jaren Jackson Jr., Wendell Carter Jr., and Robert Williams all hearing their names called. All six are listed at 6'10" or taller, though they’ll bear little resemblance in style or production to the Hall of Famers cited above or even to Howard. The last time last time six players that size were drafted in the top 10 was 2007, when Greg Oden, Al Horford, Yi Jianlian, Brandan Wright, Joakim Noah and Spencer Hawes all went early. Much has changed in 11 years. These young guys represent basketball’s new-age pivot men, er, which means we’d better drop the “pivot men” nomenclature. Rather, the word that got tossed around most often Wednesday during conversations about these guys’ fit – with specific teams and in the league generally – was modern. Modern centers for a modern NBA. “Modern-day 5,” is how Mamba put it. “Defend multiple positions, can shoot it, handle it a little. Can do a little bit of everything,” the 20-year-old from Harlem, by way of Pennsylvania and Texas. Said Jaren Jackson, Jr., fresh from one season at Michigan State: “At times, I’ve heard that I’m right on time for the way the game is going. A lot of bigs can handle the ball and be versatile and they’re able to make plays.” If you want to feel old, consider the NBA’s prevailing definition of “modern.” With major league baseball, for example, what’s known as the “modern era” historically is thought to have begun in the year 1900. By contrast, the NBA’s modern era dates back to about a week ago last Tuesday. That’s how quickly the contributions from the center position have changed. After ruling the NBA landscape for most of the league’s first 50 years, traditional big men looked at now as dinosaurs, both in form and function. Plodding isn’t allowed. Posting up, back to the basket, and backing into the paint seems as dated in this league as helmetless players in the NHL. There have been noticeable markers along the way. In the ‘90s, players who naturally would have been trained and used as centers – Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett, Rasheed Wallace, Amare Stoudemire, Antonio McDyess – demanded to face the basket and be referred to as power forwards. Then in 2012, the league joined them, eradicating “center” from its All-Star ballot and opting for “frontcourt” as a catch-all category for everyone from 6'5" wings to seven-foot shot swatters. This latest era dates back just a few years, if you go by a few key analytics. A recent ESPN.com story tracked the minutes played by seven-footers in the playoffs, compared to the regular season, and identified the tipping point as the 2016 postseason. Even if you back it up by a year to include Golden State’s heavy use of small ball in winning its championship in 2015, that’s still barely more than a heartbeat. But the full embrace of the three-point shot and the type of pace favored by a majority of current NBA coaches has put a premium on centers – we’re taking liberties in even calling them that anymore – who are mobile, who can switch defensively, challenge perimeter shooters, do some of that shooting of their own and still crash the boards and protect the rim. The next Shaq or Kareem? Now the model is Houston’s efficient Clint Capela, Boston’s savvy Al Horford or Minnesota’s ridiculously skilled Karl-Anthony Towns. Big guys such as DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis have added range to their shots. Some – Andre Drummond, Jonas Valanciunas, a few more – have status or contracts assure them minutes. Yet other old-style bigs are out of the league (Roy Hibbert, Andrew Bogut) or logging long stretches on the bench (Greg Monroe, Al Jefferson, Hassan Whiteside). Just two years ago, Jahlil Okafor was the No. 3 pick in the 2016 Draft. These days, he’s an afterthought with little market value. Teams don’t want to play the way Okafor and others like him need to play. So the challenge for a fellow such as Ayton, projected to be the near-consensus No. 1 pick this year, is to make sure no one confuses him or his game with DeAndre Jordan. Asked about the trend Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time), Ayton at one point sounded a little defiant. “I’m not changing my way of play in the NBA,” he told reporters. “I’m still an inside-out type of player. I’m going to start inside and establish myself down low until I have to stretch the floor.” It helps, of course, to have that option. Ayton already is built like an NBA veteran, but he has sufficient quickness to cover ground defensively and to keep up with a faster offensive pace. And for those who haven’t been paying attention to him since the NCAA tournament ended – or in Arizona’s case, barely got started with that opening loss to Buffalo – Ayton has a surprise: a more reliable three-point shot he’s willing to unleash. “The NBA three-ball is way farther than the college three-ball,” he said. “I’ve really put on some range and put on some muscle. When I’m fatigued in games, I really can [still] get my shot off in a perfect arc.” Bagley, depending where he lands, might end up playing more out on the floor than the other bigs in this draft. That’s his experience, having had Carter next to him at Duke to handle the basics. Williams will likely benefit from shifting in the opposite direction. He played a lot at power forward for Texas A&M but is rated highly for how his game translates to, you guessed it, modern center play. Bamba has drawn comparisons to Philadelphia’s Joel Embiid, as much for his charisma as for any play similarities. He allegedly has overhauled his shot this spring, and also was eager to tout his three-point range Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time). Then there is Jackson, who has been rated as the best two-way player of the bunch. That includes not just his defense against fellow bigs but his ability to keep up with and guard nearly any position. Jackson seemed to speak for all the big men among the future pros in New York Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time). Unlike a previous generation of centers, many of whom got caught in the NBA’s transition to a smaller, faster, position-less style, the young centers of 2018 grew up watching it. And preparing for it. Nothing frustrating about it, Jackson said, though it’s a far cry from the league in which his father, Jaren Sr., (1989-2002) played. “No. Whatever helps each team do their best is what lineup they’re going to put out,” Jackson said. “They’re going to put the best players on the floor every time. You look at a team like the Warriors, they switch everything. They can play all different positions. That’s what they’re good at.” That’s what these guys, given their size, are remarkably good at too. Steve Aschburner has written about the NBA since 1980.

PBA: Scottie Thompson caps off memorable, historical night for PBA

What should be an obscure and rainy night for most residents of Metro Manila has been rather historical in nature for the PBA. The league should remember June 20, 2018 as one of the more historical nights in league history. According to PBA statistician Fidel Mangonon III, there were three milestones achieved today in the two games today, namely the Phoenix-Globalport tussle and the battle between Ginebra and Columbian. The margin of victory for both teams were historical in itself, for it is the first time since Sept. 3, 2000 that both teams in a doubleheader had won by 27 points or more. Phoenix won by 27 against Globalport, 135-108, and Ginebra destroyed Columbian Dyip, also by 27, 134-107. In case you were wondering, the Sept. 3, 2000 games were a pair of playoff games, which were headlined by San Miguel - Sta. Lucia in Game 1 of the best-of-7 Commissioner's Cup Finals, which the Beermen demolished the Realtors by 28, 106-78, and Alaska reigning supreme over Tanduay, also by 28, 119-71, in the battle for third. Yes, there was a battle for third. It is also the first time since July 6, 2007 as two players finished with a triple-double. Import Eugene Phelps (Phoenix) tallied 37 points, 23 rebounds, and 10 assists, while dimunitive point guard recorded his 3rd career triple-double of 12 markers, 12 boards, and 10 dimes.  San Miguel's import Galen Young submitted 18 points, 14 rebounds, 10 assists in a 103-96 Battle for 3rd loss vs Red Bull, while Alaska's reinforcement Rossell Ellis posted 22 points, 13 rebounds, and 10 assists in a 113-85 win against TNT in Game 1 of the best-of-7 PBA Fiesta Conf. Finals. More importantly, Mark Caguioa moved up in the list of most prolific scorers in league history. The 38-year old moved up to 15th all-time in the scoring list at 9,931 career points after scoring eight tonight.   ___   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary. .....»»

Young Batman learns the ropes in penultimate ‘Gotham’ season

A masked crime fighter has been stalking unwary thugs since the end of "Gotham's" Season Three, but the scrawny teenage vigilante isn't exactly the Batman yet. It's Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz), sans the iconic bat motif, already well-versed in hand-to-hand combat, but still inexperienced and often lacking the crime-busting finesse of the hero he's destined to be. The fourth season of the Warner TV series, however, has shown the constant transformation of Bruce and future figures in the mythology, making the origin/reboot show more watchable than usual. Mazouz, now a teen, started playing Bruce Wayne four years ago. The character lost his parents to a masked murderer in the first...Keep on reading: Young Batman learns the ropes in penultimate ‘Gotham’ season.....»»

Two Blue Eagles in Collegiate Basketball Awards Mythical Team

The very best individual performers of collegiate basketball are set to be feted as the UAAP-NCAA Press Corps name the Mythical Team of the 2017 season in the Chooks-to-Go Collegiate Basketball Awards on Thursday at The Bayleaf Hotel in Intramuros. Robert Bolick and Thirdy Ravena, the key cogs behind San Beda and Ateneo’s championship runs, lead the selection as MVPs CJ Perez of Lyceum and Ben Mbala of La Salle join the pair. Floor general Matt Nieto, also of Ateneo, complete the cast selected by sports scribes covering the collegiate beat that will be feted in the awards night sponsored by Chooks-to-Go. After steering the Red Lions to their 21st title in the NCAA, Bolick is a shoo-in to the Mythical Team particularly with how he performed in the Finals against the Pirates. The 6-foot-1 guard out of Leyte missed out on individual accolades in the NCAA after being suspended for a game, but his year-long effort for the Red Lions isn’t about to go unnoticed. Ateneo’s homegrown pair of Ravena and Nieto also made the cut in the awards ceremony also backed by The Bayleaf Intramuros and Cherrylume after steering the Blue Eagles to their first title in five years. The duo showed great improvement from seasons before, not only in the individual aspect of the game, but in being the for the young Ateneo side coached by Tab Baldwin. Wrapping up the selection are the best individual performers of the collegiate season in Perez and Mbala. Perez was the force behind Lyceum’s amazing turnaround from cellar-dwellers to championship contenders, especially following a historic elimination round sweep. Though they fell short in the NCAA, Perez and the Pirates rebounded in winning the Philippine Collegiate Champions League. Mbala, on the other hand, is the least surprising selection following another dominant season for the Green Archers. Though they fell short of winning back to back titles, the 2016 Player of the Year was a man among boys in the UAAP leading to his second straight MVP citation......»»
