ONE Championship: Folayang vs. Alvarez matchup now a ONE Lightweight Grand Prix semifinal bout

As if it wasn't massive enough, the lightweight clash between former ONE Lightweight World Champion Eduard "Landslide" Folayang of the Philippines and multiple-time lightweight world champion Eddie "The Underground King" Alvarez of the United States at ONE: Dawn of Heroes at the Mall of Asia Arena in Manila on Friday, August 2nd now has even more at stake.  Due to an injury that has forced Russian contender Timofey Nastyukhin to withdraw from his ONE Lightweight World Grand Prix semifinals bout against former ONE Featherweight World Champion Honorio "The Rock" Banario of the Philippines, the Folayang-Alvarez matchup has now been elevated to the ONE Lightweight World Grand Prix semifinals, as announced by ONE Championship.  This now means that the winner of the must-see lightweight contest will advance to the finals to face Turkish knockout artist Saygid "Dagi" Guseyn Arslanaliev at ONE: Century in Tokyo, Japan this coming October.  The eventual winner of the ONE Lightweight World Grand Prix will challenge reigning ONE Lightweight World Champion Christian Lee in the future.  Banario, meanwhile, could remain on the card to face a different opponent, or could be moved to a different card altogether.  Folayang is coming off a first-round submission loss to Shinya Aoki at ONE: A New Era in Tokyo, Japan back in March. Earlier that same evening, Alvarez lost his ONE debut via first-round TKO to Nastyukhin in a ONE Lightweight World Grand Prix quarterfinals bout.    ONE: Dawn of Heroes takes place on Friday, August 2nd at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.

Hamilton denied Brit GP pole by Bottas, takes on negativity

By Rob Harris, Associated Press SILVERSTONE, England (AP) — By only six milliseconds — 0.006 — Lewis Hamilton was left in an unusual position on Saturday: Missing out on pole for the British Grand Prix. The pause was a lot longer when the Formula One leader was later surprised to be asked why "people question your Britishness" in the post-qualifying news conference. Look around Silverstone at the flags and banners and there is little doubt who the home crowd of more than 100,000 wants to win on Sunday. But after being outpaced by Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas, Hamilton will not start from the front of the grid at the British GP for the first time since 2014. "It wasn't the best of qualifying sessions," Hamilton said, "but it is a long race tomorrow." It is a race Hamilton is trying to win for a record sixth time, further cementing the racing excellence of Britain's five-time world champion. But Hamilton still has to shake off some negativity. Hamilton was quizzed by a reporter from Britain's Guardian newspaper on why there is a "contention because people say you live in Monaco and your accent isn't maybe as British as others because you spend a lot of time in the U.S." "I don't have a good answer for that," Hamilton replied. "It is crazy because I remember growing up and watching Jenson Button and all the youngsters coming through and everyone migrated to Monaco. Nobody ever said anything about it. But, of course, when I did, they had something to say. "No matter how often that you go abroad or elsewhere in the world you come back to the U.K., see the countryside, and this great history of Formula One and motorsport and I see all my family who are also here and this feels where my heart is. I am fully British." The Silverstone circuit is also bedecked with Hamilton banners and Union Jack flags featuring his name. "Whilst there will be negative views, I feel every day there is an opportunity to turn those who have a negative view," Hamilton said. "I guess over time I will do more and more positive things for the country. I go to all these races and I lift the British flag proudly, and there is no one else in this sport that has raised it so high. At the moment it is not enough. I will keep looking for what else I can do." Having a 31-point lead in the drivers' standings shows Hamilton is on the right track. Escaping the F1 bubble by heading to California last week helped Hamilton. But Nico Rosberg, who had a four-year rivalry with Hamilton as Mercedes teammates, said such an approach wouldn't have worked for him. "Lewis is partying in Los Angeles and is the best driver in the world," Rosberg said at the central England circuit. "If I had been travelling the way he does, I would be 10th on the grid for Mercedes." But the German won the world championship only once, in 2016, before retiring. "I do have five world titles and they didn't come on their own," Hamilton said. "Valtteri parties way more than me. When I started doing the travel and focusing on these other things there was always the issue and comments and the pressure of having to arrive and deliver the same. "It took time to break that mold and I have done it time and time and time again. My preparation comes first and I have felt fantastic all weekend. The pressure is high being that it is a home grand prix and I don't look at that lightly. I prepare the best way I can ... and that is what led me to five world titles." And also victories in six of the nine races this season after shaking off the challenge from Bottas, who won two of the first four events. Bottas is back on pole for the first time since the fifth grand prix in Spain in May. Behind the Mercedes duo on the grid on Sunday will be Ferrari's Charles Leclerc, who qualified in third, and Max Verstappen of Red Bull......»»

Anthony Davis joins Lakers with championship plans

By Greg Beacham, Associated Press EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) — Anthony Davis' year of uncertainty finally felt finished when he stood in the Los Angeles Lakers' training complex and proudly held up his new gold jersey while LeBron James looked on approvingly. After months of upheaval around his departure from New Orleans, the superstar forward is looking forward to years of success and stability on the West Coast. Sure, Davis knows the Lakers are rarely stable, and championships are the only success this franchise understands. The six-time All-Star can't wait for the challenge of winning big in the Hollywood spotlight. "The most difficult part for me was just not knowing," Davis said Saturday (Sunday, PHl time). "When it was announced that I was being traded, I don't want to say it was a relief, (but) it was something that I'd thought about for a long time. Obviously it was tough to leave the city I'd been playing in for seven years, but I think it was best for me. "When I found out I'd been traded to the Lakers, I realized it was an unbelievable opportunity for me," he added. "To be here with a wonderful organization, and then to be able to play alongside LeBron and the players that we have now ... to get the opportunity to do that and come here and play for an organization that's all about winning, and winning championships, and that's the only goal, I think that was the biggest thing for me." The Lakers formally acquired Davis this month in one of the biggest moves of the NBA's tumultuous offseason, but this courtship has been happening for much longer. Davis became determined to leave New Orleans last season, and Los Angeles made an in-season run at Davis before eagerly blowing up its young core to get a second game-changing star to play alongside James. Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka introduced Davis as "the most dominant young basketball player in the world." "There is no more complete basketball player in the game," Pelinka added. "There is nothing he can't do. He can shoot. He can make plays. He can defend 1 to 5. He can protect the rim. He can handle the ball. His dedication to his craft is unparalleled. To sit here next to him and think he's going to be on our team and he's going to be a pillar in this franchise for many years is just something we're incredibly proud of." The Lakers gave up Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, Josh Hart and a slew of draft picks to land Davis one year before he could become an unrestricted free agent. While Pelinka clearly expects Davis to sign a long-term deal to stay with the Lakers, Davis didn't make a declaration of his intentions right away. "Right now, my focus is on this year, and trying to help this organization become a championship team," Davis said. Davis' new jersey will bear a No. 3 after his plan to take his usual No. 23 from James fell through thanks to rules involving jersey supplier Nike, who had already begun planning for next season with James in the No. 23 shirt. Davis will go back to the number he wore in elementary and middle school, although he jokingly said the denial of No. 23 "was pretty hurtful." Davis and James have been kept up to speed on Pelinka's machinations to build a strong roster around them. Davis strongly endorsed the signing of DeMarcus Cousins, his former teammate in New Orleans — and not just because Davis prefers to play as a power forward instead of a center. "I like playing the 4," Davis said to a laughing coach Frank Vogel. "I'm not even going to sugarcoat it. I don't like playing the 5, but if it comes down to it, Coach, I'll play the 5." Pelinka said the Lakers signed Cousins and re-signed JaVale McGee precisely so that Davis wouldn't wear down his body guarding centers. Davis was asked about load management, and he dismissed it: "I'm playing. I'm 26-years-old. I love the game of basketball. I'm ready to play." Davis also waived a $4 million trade kicker in his contract so the Lakers would have cap room to take their failed run at Kawhi Leonard, a move that Pelinka praised as selfless. "Anytime you're able to acquire a player like Kawhi, I think you have to do almost everything to get a guy like that," Davis said. "It didn't work out for us, but I wanted to make sure I did whatever I could to help the team." Basketball-loving Los Angeles is still buzzing after its two teams were turned into immediate contenders during free agency, but they're hardly alone in a league that might have achieved a measure of parity after years of Golden State dominance. While Leonard and Paul George landed with the Clippers, Davis and James are confident about the future ahead for the 16-time NBA champions, who are exponentially more beloved in their hometown than their local rivals. Davis has lived in Los Angeles during the offseason for several years, and he loves everything about it but the traffic. "It's going to be fun," Davis said of the new-look league with its new crop of superstar pairings. "I'm excited about it. I think the league has grown. I think it's better. (With) all the players teaming up and spreading that talent throughout the league, it's going to be a fun season. I like our roster. I like every player that we have, from one through 14." The Lakers have been the worst team in the NBA during their team-record six consecutive seasons out of the playoffs, but Davis and James expect to end those struggles and drought in the year ahead. They're aiming for much more, too. "I know we'll talk about it and do whatever we can to definitely make this team a championship team next season," Davis said, before correcting himself: "This season.".....»»

Jason Phillips named to lead NBA Replay Center

NBA press release NEW YORK -- The NBA announced today that Jason Phillips, a top-rated referee with 19 seasons of officiating experience in the league, has been named Replay Center Operations Principal. Get your first look at the NBA’s top Rookies during NBA Summer League LIVE on NBA League Pass! In his new role, Phillips will be responsible for the day-to-day operations of the NBA Replay Center in Secaucus, N.J.  His Referee Operations duties will include creating training videos and interpreting the rules of the game for officials, teams, broadcasters and media. “We are excited to add an experienced and highly-respected official in Jason to our operations staff,” said NBA President, League Operations Byron Spruell. “We look forward to the continued success of the Replay Center under his leadership.” Phillips will be assisted in the Replay Center by Senior Lead Pete Williams, who has been a member of the Replay Center staff since September 2014.  In addition to game oversight, Williams creates training curricula, establishes protocol and assigns nightly responsibilities for all Replay Center personnel. Phillips will succeed Senior Vice President, Replay and Referee Operations Joe Borgia, who has served the NBA for 30 years as a game official and a basketball and referee operations executive. Borgia was instrumental in the creation, design and implementation of the NBA’s state-of-the-art Replay Center. Borgia will refocus his efforts and role with the NBA on the newly-created and recently-approved Coach’s Challenge. As he did with the Replay Center, Borgia will develop the rules and handle the execution of this important initiative. “Joe’s background, knowledge and experience make him a natural fit to lead the introduction and application of the Coach’s Challenge,” said Spruell. “After years of having Joe oversee the Replay Center nightly, we’re grateful that he will continue serving the NBA in such a pivotal role.” Phillips, 49, has officiated more than 1,100 regular-season games since joining the NBA for the 2000-01 season. He has also worked 94 NBA playoff games, including nine games in The Finals. He finished his on-court career officiating Games 1 and 5 of the 2019 NBA Finals. “After 19 years of experiencing NBA excitement on the court with the best officials in the world, I look forward to the new challenge of heading up the NBA Replay Center and working alongside the great people who help support our game on a daily basis,” said Phillips.   A native of Cisco, Texas, Phillips earned a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration at Tarleton State University......»»

Pirates challenge to rest of NCAA 95: Catch us if you can

Lyceum of the Philippines University, even without CJ Perez and MJ Ayaay, looked like the running and gunning Pirates of old at the start of the NCAA 95 Men's Basketball Tournament. Trailing fellow contender Colegio de San Juan de Letran late in their season-opener last Sunday, the Pirates unleashed the Marcelino twins, Jaycee and Jayvee. And, as always, that fast and furious backcourt did damage on both ends. For them, they were only answering the call of head coach Topex Robinson. "Sabi kasi sa amin ni coach, tayo na pinakamaliit so kailangang magdoble-effort para makuha yung panalo," Jayvee said. Jaycee only shared the same sentiment. "Paulit-ulit talaga naming sinasabi sa sarili namin na wag tayo susuko. Malaki sila so kailangan, mag-step up kaming lahat," he said. Indeed, coach Topex, a defensive-stopper himself in his playing days, has one and only one challenge for his wards - prove that height is not might. "Sabi ko sa kanila coming into the game, we have two choices, it's either we lose by just being the smallest team or we win by being the smallest team. The choice is ours," he shared. He then continued, "We might be the smallest, but what we also have is the quickest team in the league right now. We're focusing all our energy on being the smallest, but quickest team in the league and we're hoping the other teams won't catch up on our quickness." Of course, facing off against the big, bad Knights - with 6-foot-7 Larry Muyang, 6-foot-6 Paolo Javillonar, 6-foot-5 Jeo Ambohot, 6-foot-5 Christian Balagasay, and 6-foot-4 Ato Ular - will pose a problem for just about anybody. That was even more so for LPU, however, as in their showdown, their tallest players were Jayson David and Rhanzelle Yong, both standing at 6-foot-4. It didn't help either that 6-foot-6 Cameroonian power Mike Nzeusseu was also out due to a hand injury. "Dun pa lang sa parade (nung opening ceremony), grabe na nakita namin e. Kami lang maliit kasi nga wala si Mike," Jaycee said. Still, all of that didn't matter as, in the end, victory went to the "smallest, but quickest" Pirates. And if all goes according to plan throughout the rest of the tournament, then there just may not be sinking them out of contention. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

PBA: Big Beau steps up to local challenge issued by Bowles

Prior to getting injured, Denzel Bowles challenged his Rain or Shine locals to play the way they did during the All-Filipino Cup, when they finished as the no. 2 seed in the elimination round. Against Magnolia Wednesday, Beau Belga stepped up to that challenge. Big Beau scored 22 points to lead the Rain or Shine offense in the win against the Hotshots. “Siguro na-challenge kaming lahat na locals sa sinabi ni Denzel before siya ma-injure na everybody needs to step up,” Belga said. “Yung presence na yung import na nag-buwis buhay nandiyan sumusuporta sayo yun na yung extra motivation for you to play better,” he added as Bowles was at the Big Dome to support his team. Another crucial factor in the win against Magnolia is that Rain or Shine took over 5th place in the team standings. The Elasto Painters can clinch an outright playoff spot with another win. That win will have to be against San Miguel Beer later this week. “Our next problem is San Miguel on Saturday sa Cagayan de Oro. We have two days to prepare, pahinga muna ngayon,” Beau said. “It’s a crucial game for us and lagi kong sinasabi sa kanila na pagdating ng playoffs dito nilalabas ng player kung anong laro niya malapit na playoffs so wala nang dapat itago, buhos na lahat,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Man United manager says Pogba future not concerning for him

PERTH, Australia (AP) — Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has deflected questions over the future of France midfielder Paul Pogba, saying that Pogba has "never been a concern" for him and that Manchester United doesn't have to sell players. Pogba, who is considering a possible move, with Real Madrid or Juventus mentioned prominently, was among the players who arrived in Perth on Monday for a 10-day, two-match tour in Western Australia. Pogba said last month in Tokyo that he feels ready for a change despite him having two years remaining on his contract. "There has been loads of talk and speculation, of course, about all our players or many of our players, both ins and outs," Solskjaer said Wednesday during his first media conference in two months. "For me, it's business as usual. When you're Man United, you expect all these things to pop up in the summer. "As far as I am aware and up to now, we don't have any bids for any of our players so there's no reason to say other than Paul — or most of our players — have long contracts. We are Man United. We don't have to sell players." Solskjaer said he hasn't noticed any difference in Pogba's demeanor or effort during training. "When he's on the pitch he's working hard, he's a true professional and he's a proud boy," Solskjaer said. "He's been fantastic so far in training. Paul has never been a concern for me." Manchester United finished in sixth place in the Premier League this season, 21 points behind champion Liverpool. "We know last year was disappointing but we know what we have to aim for this year," Solskjaer said. "We have to close the gap in a very competitive league and we have trophies to play for. United is about bouncing back and pre-season has been very encouraging so far." Solskjaer was also speaking for the first time since the arrivals of Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James. "We've got some fantastic players and there's loads of players here that will be successful at this club," he said. "We've signed two fantastic players in Daniel and Aaron with speed and quality, and they're hungry to succeed." Man United signed defender Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace in a deal worth around $60 million at the end of June. The 21-year-old Wan-Bissaka, who made 46 appearances in all competitions for Palace, was Solskjaer's second signing following the arrival of winger James from Swansea earlier in the month. The English Premier League team plays its first match on Saturday against the A-League's Perth Glory. On July 17, Leeds United will be the opposition at the same Perth Stadium. Pogba's comments in Tokyo last month suggested the 26-year-old wanted to play elsewhere. "For me, you know I've been here for three years in Manchester, it's been great," Pogba said then. "(But) I think for me it can be a good time to have a new challenge somewhere else." On Tuesday, Pogba's agent Mino Raiola said he was hopeful that Pogba would soon be allowed to leave Man United. "The player (Pogba) has done nothing wrong," Raiola said. "He has been respectful and professional in every way. The club has known his feeling for a long time. Hopefully there will be soon a satisfying solution." Solskjaer dismissed those comments. "Agents talk all the time," he said Wednesday. "Paul is a top bloke, a great professional. He has never put himself out of the team. He has always wanted to play and he always gives his best.".....»»
