The Headlines So Far in the 2017-18 NBA Season

The new NBA season is still in its early stages, but it feels like we’re already in the thick of things with so much happening already. Luck of the Irish The Celtics, despite losing Gordon Hayward to a season-ending injury, currently have the best record in the league and own the longest winning streak so far this year with 16 games won consecutively. Kyrie Irving and Al Horford have been leading the charge, with young guns Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum upping their game. It certainly won’t be surprising to see them secure the top seed in the East this season if their remarkable play continues. Steve Kerr even declared the Celtics as the East’s “team of the future.” International Beasts of the East Giannis Antetokounmpo is already staking his claim as the league’s MVP, averaging nearly 30 points a game at a very efficient 55% clip as of this writing. With Eric Bledsoe assisting with ball-handling duties, the young Buck’s play is only bound to get better. Remember, Antetokounmpo still hasn’t even developed an outside shot yet. Imagine what the Greek Freak can do when he finally does. Kristaps Porzingis has also been unleashed in New York after the departure of Carmelo Anthony and Phil Jackson. The Latvian big man has been on a roll, taking advantage of an increased usage rate to average 27.3 points per game. The Knicks are exceeding expectations—The Playoffs doesn’t seem to be a far-fetched reality for them if Porzingis and the rest of the team can keep this up. After playing only 31 games last season, Joel Embiid has been making up for lost time. Along with Ben Simmons, the Cameroonian standout has been leading the Philadelphia to its best start in years, averaging 22.7 points and 11 boards. Additionally, Embiid has been posting roughly 2 blocks per game, and he says that he’s going to go for the Defensive Player of the Year Award this season. It looks like the Sixers fans’ are finally being rewarded for trusting the process. The Rookies Have Been Doing Work In his first season on the floor, Ben Simmons has been averaging 18. 7 points, 9.2 rebounds, and 7.6 assists per outing. And in almost every game, he’s been flirting with a triple-double. At this rate, it looks like he’s going to be the frontrunner in the Rookie of the Year race. Another solid performer is Jayson Tatum, who is one of the primary contributors in the Celtics’ stellar start. He’s been averaging an efficient 14.2 points, 5.9 rebounds, and 1.5 assist per game in around 30 minutes of play. From deep, Tatum has been drilling 48% of his threes. With his smart play, sometimes, it feels like we’re not watching a rookie. Kyle Kuzma, perhaps the biggest steal in this year’s draft class, is currently outperforming most rookies picked ahead of him, including fellow Laker and #3 draftee Lonzo Ball. Kuzma has been averaging 16.8 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 15 assists, and he’s shooting nearly 50% from the field and 36% from deep. While he still has a bit of work to do on the defensive end, he’s shaping up to be a cornerstone in LA’s post-Kobe era. Warriors still Super Team to Beat During the offseason, several teams secured major acquisitions to reinforce their lineups. The Cavs were able to reload with future Hall of Fame guards and versatile wings on board. OKC acquired two All-Stars in Paul George and Carmelo Anthony, but are still in the process of figuring things out. Minnesota was able to add Jimmy Butler to its young core. But despite the trades and signings, the Golden State Warriors remain the most “super” of the squads with the “super team” tag. After starting the season 1-2, the Warriors have regained their dominating form and are now back with their winning ways—and it seems that they won’t be slowing down anytime soon. Kevin Durant has been on a tear, but it’s Steph Curry that currently leads the team in points per game (25.5), steals per game (1.8), and in Player Efficiency Rating (27.6). He remains the fulcrum of Golden State’s offense, the man that won’t let the Dubs down. Steph Curry continues to perform at a high level because he depends on the World’s No. 1 Deodorant to stay cool and confident. The two-time MVP only trusts Rexona Ice Cool to help him fee dry and fresh all day, so he can be his best on the court, and even off it. It’ll be interesting to see if these stories and trends continue as we go along the new season. Stay tuned, hoops fans!  .....»»

Pope acknowledges abuse scandals outrage, drive people away

    TALLINN, Estonia --- Pope Francis acknowledged Tuesday that the sex abuse scandals rocking the Catholic Church have outraged the faithful and are driving them away, and said the church must change its ways if it wants to keep future generations.   The Pope referred directly to the crisis convulsing his papacy on the fourth and final day of his Baltic pilgrimage, which coincided with the release of a devastating new report into decades of sex abuse and cover-up in Germany.   Pope Francis told a gathering of young people in Estonia -- considered one of the least religious countries in the world -- that he knew many young people felt the church ...Keep on reading: Pope acknowledges abuse scandals outrage, drive people away.....»»

Players union reiterates disapproval of league match in US

By TALES AZZONI,  AP Sports Writer MADRID (AP) — The Spanish players' association remains against the league's plan to play a regular-season match in the United States despite receiving more detailed information. The association was not convinced by the league's update and said on Monday it still disapproved of the Girona-Barcelona game planned for suburban Miami in January. It said the league still lacks the necessary approvals from other stakeholders, and it can't guarantee the union contract won't be breached. The association doesn't have a final say on whether the game actually happens, although players recently did not rule out a strike if their demands are not considered. They complained about not being consulted by the league before the idea was presented. The association's latest announcement came three days after the Spanish soccer federation refused to approve the match, putting the plan in serious doubt. The federation requested more documentation from the league after saying it failed to show the overseas match would comply with Spanish and international regulations and TV broadcast contracts, and that it would not harm the other 18 league clubs and the fans of Girona and Barcelona. The match would also need to be approved by the U.S. soccer federation, plus continental bodies UEFA and CONCACAF. FIFA's permission is not mandatory but president Gianni Infantino recently expressed his concerns about the game. Spanish league president Javier Tebas again defended the match, saying football needs to catch up to what other sports have been doing to try to keep growing internationally. "If we don't keep working to try to grow, other competitions and other sports will leave us behind. We have to be different," Tebas said on Monday at a soccer conference in Madrid. "In the sports industry we have to try to copy what others are doing well. Why does the NBA and the NFL take a match abroad and we can't? Why can't we keep growing? This is our greatest responsibility, to grow, because this is an industry." Tebas said he was surprised by the amount of negative reaction to the proposal. "It looks like we want to play the entire league in Miami. It's just one match," he said. "We want to play one match, for strategic reasons, to try to grow the league." Earlier Monday, European Club Association chairman Andrea Agnelli, Juventus' president, said he "take(s) his hat off" to Tebas for taking the initiative and working to expand the Spanish league globally. "That's something that should be looked at," Agnelli said. "If you want to have a global audience, you need to be closer to (that audience)." The league plan to play games in the U.S. is part of a new 15-year partnership with sports and entertainment group Relevent, which operates the International Champions Cup, a tournament of club friendlies during the European offseason in July and August around the world. The Spanish federation held its season-opening Super Cup abroad for the first time in August, with Barcelona beating Sevilla in Tangier, Morocco. Real Madrid president Florentino Perez said on Sunday his team would not play the game abroad in the future, saying he was "vehemently against it." Tebas said: "The vast majority of the clubs, including Barcelona, are interested in playing this game. If Real Madrid doesn't want to go, then don't go. It's voluntary, no problem. Many clubs want to go.".....»»

UAAP: La Salle captain Kib Montalbo out 4-6 weeks

And De La Salle University’s lineup is down to 11 for the foreseeable future in the UAAP 81 Men’s Basketball Tournament. The Green Archers will be missing the services of team captain Kib Montalbo after he sustained a fracture to his left thumb last Sunday. While the injury is on his non-shooting hand, sources said that Montalbo will have to sit out and rest his left thumb for four to six weeks. Or else, he risks aggravating the injury. The graduating guard has been averaging 3.7 points, 5.3 assists, 3.0 rebounds, and 1.3 steals in La Salle’s 2-1 start to the season. More than the numbers, however, his leadership and defense will be sorely missed by a team trying to move on from the Aldin Ayo and Ben Mbala era. In his absence, veteran guards Andrei Caracut and Aljun Melecio will have to shoulder a heavier load while the likes of Miggy Corteza, Gabe Capacio, and Encho Serrano will have to soak up more time on the floor. Montalbo joins Kiwi center Taane Samuel on the sidelines for the Green Archers who only listed 13 players on their roster for UAAP Season 81. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Why the ‘gig’ economy may not be the workforce of the future

WASHINGTON --- The "gig" economy might not be the new frontier for America's workforce after all. From Uber to TaskRabbit to YourMechanic, so-called gig work has been widely seen as ideal for people who want the flexibility and independence that traditional jobs don't offer. Yet the evidence is growing that over time, they don't deliver the financial returns many expect. And they don't appear to be reshaping the workforce. Over the past two years, for example, pay for gig workers has dropped, and they are earning a growing share of their income elsewhere, a new study finds. Most Americans who earn income through online platforms do so for only a few months each year, accordi...Keep on reading: Why the ‘gig’ economy may not be the workforce of the future.....»»

As The Bamboos Sway: Friends and the SLUBHS Class ‘68

I have a circle of friends that evolved during our early college days.

We shared songs, laughter, joy, and woes. We became best men and bridesmaids to each other, ninongs and ninangs of our children. We were and are there for each other in times of need. We may have developed different opinions on the world but, at the end of the day, we still consider ourselves best friends......»»
