Curry would love to captain Team Curry again in 2019

By Bernie Wilson, Associated Press LOS ANGELES (AP) — Stephen Curry would love to be an NBA All-Star Game captain again next year, especially since the game will be in his hometown of Charlotte. LeBron James would be OK with someone else taking his place, depending on who the top two vote-getters are, although his draft prowess led to Team LeBron beating Team Stephen 148-145 Sunday night (Monday, PHL time). And there’s a definite appetite for the NBA to televise the captains’ draft rather than conduct it clandestinely like it was this year. “Televise it,” said DeMar DeRozan of Team Stephen. “Give the people what they want to see. I think everybody wants to see it. At the end of the day, every single person that gets picked, you are an All-Star, so it doesn’t matter where you really go, so I think televise it.” Players raved about the new format of having captains draft the teams rather than the traditional format of East vs. West. And James finally revealed his draft order: Kevin Durant, Anthony Davis, his former Cleveland teammate Kyrie Irving and DeMarcus Cousins, who missed the game due to a season-ending injury. “I know who I like watching and I had a draft board. I had a process,” James said. “Some of it went according to plan. A couple of them fell through, but I was satisfied and happy with the guys that I got.” James’ original roster was dramatically altered by injuries to Cousins, John Wall, Kristaps Porzingis and Kevin Love, who all missed the game. “Even with the four guys that got injured we were able to get four new guys that came in and played well for us.” James was named the game’s MVP after making the go-ahead, finger-roll layup with 34.5 seconds left and scoring a game-high 29 points. Where did he hide his draft board? “Ain’t none of your business. You’re going too far, man,” James said with a laugh. Curry didn’t divulge his draft order. “As the draft kind of unfolded, you start to game plan around positions,” he said. “For me, I tried to get the best shooters. It was kind of cool to see both teams come together as me and LeBron were picking. So that part, that vibe of the format and having two guys select from your peers will be a fun show as it unfolds year after year.” The All-Star draft led to interesting dynamics on court. Curry chose his Golden State teammates Klay Thompson and Draymond Green, but the trio had to play against Durant. James also chose Oklahoma City duo Westbrook and Paul George to play along with Kyrie Irving, who forced a trade away from James in Cleveland just last summer. Irving and James had no obvious friction, even laughing and joking on the bench. Neither did Durant and Westbrook, who broke up in 2016 when Durant left Oklahoma City for Golden State. Durant helped James smother Curry in the final seconds to prevent him from getting off a potential tying shot. And then there was Toronto’s Dwane Casey coaching Team LeBron against Raptors star DeRozan. “I think that having the captains and selecting the guys and being able to mix them up gave it a more authentic feel of kind of what us players want to be part of in an All-Star Game,” Irving said. “It’s great to play with guys in your conference, East-West. But when you get a chance to have Russell Westbrook, Paul George, and you know they’re teammates already, and then you mix them with myself and Kemba (Walker), and LeBron, and you could see the mix and it just worked.”.....»»

Nuggets use big second-half run to beat Suns 123-113

By Jack Magruder, Associated Press PHOENIX (AP) — Wilson Chandler scored 26 points, Will Barton had 25 point and the Denver Nuggets used an extended second-half run to take control in a 123-113 victory over the Phoenix Suns on Saturday night (Sunday, PHL time). Nikola Jokic had 21 points, nine rebounds and seven assists, and Gary Harris had 13 points for the Nuggets, who have won 4-of-5. TJ Warren had 31 points and Dragan Bender had a career-high 23 for the Suns, who have lost five in a row, 10-of-11 and 13-of-15. One of those wins came in Denver on Jan. 19 (Jan. 20, PHL time). Their only other victory in that stretch was against Dallas at home. Barton scored 11 points during a 21-9 run that gave the Nuggets a 94-89 lead after three quarters, and Denver scored the first five points of the fourth quarter for a 13-point cushion. Jokic’s three-pointer from the top of the key made it 109-95 with 6:29 remaining, capping a longer 36-15 run. Marquese Chriss’ fast-break dunk closed the Suns’ deficit to 109-103 with 4:29 remaining, but Barton hit a three-pointer and Chandler hit two from the right corner to put away the game. Elfrid Payton made a strong first impression for the Suns with 19 points, nine assists and six rebounds in 35 minutes. He was acquired from Orlando at the trade deadline Thursday (Friday, PHL time). Josh Jackson had 20 points, seven rebounds and five assists. The Suns played without leading scorer Devin Booker, Tyson Chandler and Tyler Ulis. Booker, who is 12th in the league with 24.1 points per game, has missed the last three games with a hip pointer. Chandler was out with a neck injury and Ulis with back spasms. Phoenix made a much better showing than in the previous game Wednesday (Thursday, PHL tiem), a 129-81 loss to San Antonio that tied the Suns’ worst ever. They set the record against Portland on opening night this season. TIP-INS Nuggets: The Nuggets are one of six teams within 3.5 games of each other in the race for the final four playoff spots in the West. Suns: Phoenix was 14-of-25 from the free throw line, with Warren 5-of-9 and Josh Jackson 0-of-3. BOOKER UPDATE The Suns have only two games remaining until the All-Star break, but there is no plan to keep Booker and his sore hip out until after the break as precautionary measure. “It depends completely on his injury,” Suns interim coach Jay Triano said. “I don’t think it makes sense to rush him back if he is not a hundred percent or there is chance of re-injury or causing some long-term damage. “He wants to play. He is down in the gym shooting. He shoots a little bit and then he starts to move and it kind of hits him where this doesn’t feel great.” Booker has missed three straight games with a hip injury after missing one game two weeks ago with a rib injury. UP NEXT Nuggets: Host Spurs on Tuesday (Wednesday, PHL time). Suns: Visit Warriors on Monday (Tuesday, PHL time)......»»

Ateneo’s Ponggay Gaston channels modern women empowerment icons with new pixie cut

Ateneo Lady Eagles outside hitter Ponggay Gaston stunned fans on Twitter when she was seen Friday afternoon rocking a new shorter “pixie” hairstyle during their UAAP season 80 photoshoot in ABS-CBN. .@pingpongPONGGAY rocking the new ‘do! 👀💇🏻 #UAAPSeason80 pic.twitter.com/zq7pQbPKUG — ABS-CBN Sports (@abscbnsports) January 19, 2018 Far from the long, flowing locks from seasons past, Gaston’s shorter hair was both a fashion choice, and a social statement as well. “I wanted to be like Eleven from hit Netlfix series ‘Stranger Things’ and Natalie Portman’s character in ‘V for Vendetta’,” she bared. Ponggay, a bubbly presence on the court for Ateneo, is of course talking about two fictional characters in TV and in film who she felt best represented the empowerment of women.  “Wala lang, I think that there is more to a woman than her hair,” she said, after revealing that she actually had the haircut right before Christmas last year.   Snip snip snip 💇🏽 A post shared by i come for ür doggos (@pingpongponggay) on Dec 23, 2017 at 2:21am PST While Gaston originally wanted to emulate the shaved hairstyles popularized by Eleven, played by Millie Bobby Brown, and Evey Hammond, played by Natalie Portman in the 2006 film, she compromised for a slightly longer cut.  “I wanted to make it really semi-kalbo, I wanted it short,” Gaston shared, “But then they wouldn’t let me cut it that short.” Ever the trendsetter, Gaston, who also used to be a runway model, had nothing but positive reactions from her peers, after the initial surprise, of course.  “They were shocked because I’ve always had long hair. But then, you know, what choice do they got, they’re going to see it everyday,” she said. “They liked it naman.” With the season already near, Ponggay says she’d let her hair grow back until the UAAP wars end, then she’ll push for her original plan. “I think I’m gonna go for my goal, which is to make it really shaved. Maybe after [the season],” Gaston shared. While fans are yet to get used to Gaston’s new hair, they’ll get to see the outside hitter step up for Ateneo when the Lady Eagles open their bid this February 4 against FEU at the Mall of Asia Arena......»»
