Panthers owner under investigation for workplace misconduct

By Steve Reed, Associated Press CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The Carolina Panthers founder and owner Jerry Richardson is under investigation for workplace misconduct. The team said Friday former White House Chief of Staff Erskine Bowles is overseeing the investigation by a Los Angeles-based law firm. Team spokesman Steven Drummond said in a release that the Panthers and the 81-year-old Richardson take these allegations very seriously and are fully committed to a full investigation and taking appropriate steps to address and remediate any misconduct. "The entire organization is fully committed to ensuring a safe, comfortable and diverse work environment where all individuals, regardless of sex, race, color, religion, gender, or sexual identity or orientation, are treated fairly and equally," Drummond said in the release. "We have work to do to achieve this goal, but we are going to meet it." Richardson was unavailable for comment. Drummond told The Associated Press because the matter is under legal review, the Panthers cannot comment publicly on the specifics of the allegations. The Panthers made the NFL aware on Friday that it has initiated an investigation into Richardson's alleged workplace misconduct. NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said the league has no comment at this time. The investigation against the team's only owner in franchise history is being led by international law firm Quinn Emanuel Urquhart and Sullivan, LLP, and will be overseen by Bowles, who is a minority owner. Panthers coach Ron Rivera said in a release Friday night that he has had a strong relationship with Richardson since he joined the franchise as coach in 2012. "I have enormous respect for the man, but will wait for the results of the investigation before making any judgment," Rivera said. Richardson brought NFL football to the Carolinas in 1993 when he became the first former NFL player since George Halas to own a team. The Panthers began play two years later in 1995. The Panthers have made a series of peculiar moves in the last year. Team president Danny Morrison, who was well liked in the Carolinas among had worked on the business side, abruptly resigned in February. Then, as the Panthers were preparing for training camp, Richardson unexpectedly fired general manager Dave Gettleman, who has led the team to the Super Bowl just two years ago and replaced him with former general manager Marty Hurney. The move was odd considering Carolina has made the playoffs three times in four seasons under Gettleman. Hurney did not immediately return phone calls seeking comment. Richardson, who rarely conducts interviews, never addressed the moves. Richardson was hospitalized 2008, one month after receiving a pacemaker. Richardson underwent quadruple bypass surgery in 2002 and was placed on a donor waiting list for a new heart. He received the new heart on Feb. 1, 2009, and has not had any known setbacks since. He is only one of two owners to have owned a franchise since its inception. The other is Houston's Robert McNair......»»

San Miguel, TNT, Ginebra have target on their backs for PBA Philippine Cup

Three-time champion San Miguel is the unanimous team-to-beat as the PBA gears up for its season-opening Philippine Cup. The Beermen were the only ones mentioned by all of the team governors who were asked about the top team in the tournament. “I think it’s still gonna be San Miguel because of its intact lineup,” Meralco alternate governor Ryan Gregorio told reporters in the league’s preseason press conference on Wednesday at the Okada in Paranaque. Indeed, the three-time champions will be parading the same core of four-time MVP June Mar Fajardo, Alex Cabagnot, Marcio Lassiter, Chris Ross, and Arwind Santos. That’s not even counting 2017 PBA Draft top pick Christian Standhardinger who is still fulfilling contractual obligations in the Asean Basketball league. Alaska’s Dickie Bachmann, Blackwater’s Dioceldo Sy, Ginebra’s Alfrancis Chua, Magnolia’s Rene Pardo, NLEX’s Ramoncito Fernandez, Rain or Shine’s Mert Mondragon, TNT’s Magnum Membrere, and even San Miguel’s own Robert Non could only agree with Gregorio. Chua and Pardo, however, explained that the Beermen will not be able to truly take their place as the top team in the tournament as they are yet to have Standhardinger. “SMB, hindi pa malakas yan, wala pa si Standhardinger. Sa second conference pa,” the former said. With that opening for contention, team governors also named Ginebra and TNT as teams to watch. “If you know your basketball, Ginebra ang pipiliin ko,” Pardo said, talking about the Gin Kings of multi-titled mentor Tim Cone, Japeth Aguilar, Joe Devance, Greg Slaughter, LA Tenorio and Scottie Thompson. “Yung TNT, intact yung lineup tapos they also have bigs who can match-up with June Mar,” Non said of the KaTropa mentored by Nash Racela and fronted by Jayson Castro, RR Pogoy, and Kelly Williams. Meanwhile, Terrence Romeo and Stanley Pringle’s Globalport as well as Kevin Alas and Kiefer Ravena’s NLEX are seen as darkhorses in the tournament. The 43rd Season of Asia’s first pay-for-play league commences on December 17 at the Araneta Coliseum. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Aldridge’s double-double rallies Spurs past Pistons 96-93

By Raul Dominguez, Associated Press SAN ANTONIO (AP) — LaMarcus Aldridge had 17 points and 10 rebounds and the San Antonio Spurs rallied to beat the Detroit Pistons 96-93 on Monday night (Tuesday, PHL time). Reggie Jackson had 27 points for Detroit, which led by as many as nine points before dropping its third straight. The Spurs were without Kawhi Leonard and Kyle Anderson, who has started in place of Leonard all season. Rudy Gay, making his first start in place of Anderson, had 12 points, 10 rebounds and four assists. His final points came on a three-point play that gave San Antonio an 88-86 lead with 3:39 remaining. Detroit trailed 94-93 when Gay failed to hit the rim on a three-point attempt as the shot clock expired with 5.2 seconds remaining, but the Pistons’ Tobias Harris committed a foul prior to the violation. Aldridge made two free throws to give the Spurs a 96-93 lead. Gay blocked Harris’ three-point attempt at the buzzer to preserve the victory. Pau Gasol added 15 points and 10 rebounds for the Spurs, who had seven players score in double figures and had three with double-doubles. Andre Drummond finished with 11 points and 15 rebounds for his 17th double-double in Detroit’s 23 games this season. Jackson had 20 points in the first half and Detroit shot 48 percent against the league’s second-best defense statistically through two quarters. The Spurs held the Pistons to 41 percent shooting to close the game. TIP-INS Pistons: Drummond averaged 16 points and 16 rebounds against San Antonio last season. ... Detroit is 6-2 against Western Conference teams. ... Stan Van Gundy has 498 career wins. ... Jon Leuer missed the game with a sprained left ankle. ... The Pistons have lost six straight to the Spurs. Spurs: Leonard said prior to the game he is feeling healthy and will return “soon” from a quadriceps injury that has kept him out all season, but he does not have a target date for his debut. ... Patty Mills joined Ginobili and Matt Bonner as the only reserves in franchise history to make 500 three-pointers. ... Tony Parker and Ginobili have won 655 games as teammates, the fourth most among duos in league history. Utah’s John Stockton and Karl Malone hold the record with 906 victories followed by Tim Duncan and Parker with 744 and Boston’s Robert Parish and Kevin McHale with 656. ... The Spurs have made at least one three-pointer in 999 straight games dating back to 2005.

Embiid drew the fifth and sixth fouls on Drummond and drew cheers as he waved goodbye to his fouled-out rival in between hitting four free throws to put Philadelphia ahead 100-95 with 2:35 left.

Embiid waves goodbye to Drummond, Pistons in 108-103 win

PHILADELPHIA -- Joel Embiid had 25 points and 10 rebounds and got the better of Andre Drummond down the stretch in a matchup of trash-talking big men to help the Philadelphia 76ers to a 108-103 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Saturday night. Embiid drew the fifth and sixth fouls on Drummond and drew cheers as he waved goodbye to his fouled-out rival in between hitting four free throws to put Philadelphia ahead 100-95 with 2:35 left. Robert Covington added 25 points, and Dario Saric had 17 points and hit a 3-pointer with 1:40 left to put the Sixers ahead 103-95 in a game where the centers were the story. Embiid and Drummond have been trading insults since the Sixers won in Detroit on Oct. 23. Drummond's dunk with 10:04 left gave Detroit its first lead since the first quarter. He added a tip-in and two free throws before Embiid got the upper hand. Drummond had 14 points, 11 rebounds, six assists and five steals. Tobias Harris scored 27 points, and Reggie Jackson had 25 points for the Pistons. They trailed by 18 points early in the third quarter. Embiid's fadeaway to start the third quarter seemed to put the Sixers in control. But they were outscored 33-15 the rest of the period. Embiid missed a dunk and had one of his six turnovers sandwiched between Luke Kennard's tying 3-pointer. Embiid, known to needle opponents, had 30 points and nine rebounds in a 97-86 victory in Detroit to end the Sixers' 0-3 start. Embiid bragged that he dominated Drummond despite the Detroit center's trash talk and said Drummond "doesn't play defense." Drummond responded with the tweet, "See you Dec. 2nd." Embiid kept it going at the morning shootaround saying of Drummond, "No disrespect, but he can't shoot." Drummond wouldn't speak to reporters in the locker room before the game, but told Fox Sports Detroit, "You can't really have a conversation with a man who can't play a back-to-back" and "when he can play a whole season without taking a rest, he can come talk to me." Embiid missed his first two NBA seasons with injuries and played in only 31 games last season before knee surgery. He's yet to be cleared to play on consecutive nights and sat out Thursday's loss at Boston. Drummond has played in all but three games in the past five seasons, and grabbed 17 rebounds a night earlier in a loss at Washington. TIP-INS Pistons: The Pistons were twice called for a 5-second inbounding violation, including while trailing by five with 6 seconds left. ... The Pontiac Silverdome, home of the Pistons from 1978-88, will be demolished Sunday morning. 76ers: Covington, who was 4 of 24 from 3-point range in the previous three games, hit 6 of 13 from long range. ... Backup PG T.J. McConnell (left shoulder) missed his second straight game. ... Fans chanted "MVP!" as former Sixers great Allen Iverson was introduced before tipoff. UP NEXT Pistons: At San Antonio on Monday night. 76ers: Host Phoenix on Monday night......»»

Temperature check at 20-game mark of 17-18 NBA season

By Steve Aschburner, NBA.com Twenty games is not a small sample size. At 20 games, much of what an NBA team is -- and much of what it will become -- is mostly well-established. Fourteen, 16, even 18 games into an 82-game schedule, it might be easy to understate and/or overstate a season. That round number of 20, though -- the closest a team can get in whole games to 25 percent of the regular season (24.39, actually) -- resonates. As our man John Schuhmann notes annually in his Power Rankings, what qualifies as one-fourth of the season carries a certain heft, in terms of who’s good, who’s not and who’s headed where over the remaining 60-62 games. The teams that are likely to be in the playoffs largely are known by now -- 14 of the 16 qualifiers in 2016-17 were above the lottery cutoff by Dec. 5, last season’s quarter mark -- as are those that are racing toward the bottom or merely churning about. Twenty games is no joke, in other words, which is why numerous NBA teams do some serious evaluating at this point each season. Those at or near the top (and those committed to the cellar) may not make course-altering decisions. The teams in the yawning middle might be particularly engaged right about now -- all 30 teams will have played at least 20 games by Friday morning -- in either fishing or cutting bait. The Miami Heat, at 10-9, will hit 20 at Cleveland tonight. They’re especially known for the so-called Rule of 20 owing to team president Pat Riley’s ways dating back to his New York and Los Angeles days. The thinking is, 82 games is too vast and ill-defined, splayed across six months or so, to allow for clear, concise judgments along the way. By the time you get a feel for where your team is headed, you’ve either already gotten there or been sidetracked. At 20 games -- and then again at 40 and 60 -- there’s an opportunity to correct one’s course or adjust one’s objectives. Lock into a starting lineup, pursue a trade, fire a coach, opt for Plan B or hitch up the shorts for a stretch drive, it’s only doable if the right markers are heeded. Some coaches will talk about “continuous improvement” as their overriding mission, but there are so many tiny variables from one game to the next: travel, schedule quirks, minor ailments. Better to go with a block of games. And to know when you can’t. “You have a pretty good idea of your general feel and context of your team,” Miami coach Erik Spoelstra said. “But that’s not always in cement. Just look at us last year. We didn’t really understand where we were. But you have an idea of what direction, usually, that your team is going in.” The Heat in 2016-17 had one of the most unusual seasons in league annals, going 11-30 after a Jan. 13 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks and then 30-11 in to finish the season. They were 7-13 after 20 games, then wound up barely missing a playoff berth on the season’s final night. This time around, the Heat seem to be a blend of last season’s good and bad, and their mediocre mark shows it. Spoelstra has rolled back a lot of the work between games to fundamentals and essentials, with the focus on building good habits. “We’ve got a ways to go,” he said. ‘We’re building habits. We’re building better behavior, all the little things that lead to winning, so hopefully we’ll be a much different team every 20-game block from here on out.” (Some even think 20 games is too many, too diffused and vague for the short attention spans players almost necessarily have to have when uploading mass quantities of opponent research for a homestand’s worth of foes. Hall of Fame coach Hubie Brown preferred to mentally break the season into eight-game chunks. Go 5-3 in enough of those, you’re almost assured of being a playoff team.) Twenty games in is a fragile time for coaches, as far as job security, as the Memphis Grizzlies’ David Fizdale found out Monday (Tuesday, PHL time). At 7-12, he and the Grizzlies had been given enough rope that management obviously felt a determination could be made. Memphis’ quick start, winning five of its first six, didn’t resonate nearly as much as its eight consecutive losses did. Not every franchise hits 20, 40 or 60 games on the nose before doing something dramatic. Phoenix Suns GM Ryan McDonough felt he needed to see only three games to fire coach Earl Watson. In 2015-16, the Houston Rockets pulled the plug on Kevin McHale after 11 games. But the last time Miami made a coaching change in season, Riley sent home Stan Van Gundy at 11-10 in 2005-06 and took over for the final 61 games. The Cleveland Cavaliers fired David Blatt 41 games into the 2015-16 season. And the last time each of these organizations -- Washington, Toronto, San Antonio, Minnesota, Golden State, Philadelphia, Sacramento and Chicago -- made coaching changes during the season, they did so after 17, 17, 18, 19, 23, 23, 24 and 25 games respectively. What have we learned about the league this season, with 20 games coming sooner than usual? * Boston’s acquisition of Kyrie Irving, its young starting forwards and a more tenacious defense than expected have more than made up for Gordon Hayward’s loss. * The day Philadelphia coach Brett Brown longed for finally has arrived. * Detroit, Indiana and New York might manage to overachieve their way into lower-seed possibilities. Washington’s window is closing before its eyes, and Milwaukee has flaws at both ends that won’t be solved if and when Jabari Parker returns. * Houston’s James Harden might snag the Kia MVP trophy many thought he deserved last spring. * Minnesota, Denver and Portland are for real in the West, while it’s getting late early in Oklahoma City. Carmelo Anthony was supposed to have left his sub-.500 records back with the Knicks. * The next man Memphis owner Robert Pera offers a full-time coaching position is going to speed-dial Lionel Hollins, Dave Joerger and Fizdale in some order. * A strong field of Kia Rookie of the Year candidates at least six deep from the Draft class of 2017 all might wind up slotting in behind the Sixers’ Ben Simmons. * The drama of the draft lottery might be greater than that of the playoffs decided several weeks later. * LeBron James still moves the Earth and the league when he firmly puts his foot down. Then there’s the best thing about the NBA season at 20 games: That means 62 more to go. Steve Aschburner has written about the NBA since 1980.

Grizzlies relieve David Fizdale of head coaching duties

Memphis Grizzlies press release Memphis Grizzlies General Manager Chris Wallace today announced that the organization has relieved David Fizdale of his head coaching duties. Grizzlies associate head coach J.B. Bickerstaff has been named interim head coach. Fizdale was named the 13th head coach in franchise history on May 29, 2016 and compiled a 50-51 record (.495) during his two seasons in Memphis, including a 7-12 record (.368) this season. “After a thorough evaluation, I decided a change in course was necessary to move forward and provide the team and organization its best chance at success this season and beyond,” Wallace said. “Coach Fizdale represented the Grizzlies and City of Memphis proudly, and we wish him well as he continues his career.” “Coach Fizdale worked tirelessly to achieve on-court success, and for that, we are grateful. We wish him and his family all the best in the future,” Grizzlies Controlling Owner Robert J. Pera said. “We remain focused on achieving sustainable, long-term success.” Before joining the Grizzlies as associate head coach in June 2016, Bickerstaff served five seasons (2011-16) with the Houston Rockets, originally as an assistant coach and then as interim head coach, guiding the Rockets to a 37-34 record (.521) to close the 2015-16 season with a berth in the 2016 NBA Playoffs. His previous NBA coaching experience also includes four seasons (2007-11) as an assistant coach with the Minnesota Timberwolves and three seasons (2004-07) as an assistant coach with the Charlotte Bobcats under his father, Bernie Bickerstaff......»»
