Kobe Bryant s Basketball Hall of Fame induction moved to 2021

By The Associated Press Kobe Bryant and the rest of this year’s Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame class won’t be inducted in 2020 — or at the birthplace of basketball. The Hall announced Friday that the enshrinement ceremony will be held May 13-15, 2021, and the entire festivities will be moved to Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut. This year was to be a highlight for the Hall of Fame, located in Springfield, Massachusetts. Bryant, killed in January in a helicopter crash, headlined a decorated class featuring Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett that would have been enshrined in the recently renovated museum. But the coronavirus pandemic scuttled those plans and hit the Hall so hard that it eliminated several full-time positions and cut senior management pay in the 25-40% range. Hall of Fame President and CEO John Doleva says the rescheduled enshrinement festivities, the diminished museum visitation and the uncertainty regarding the Hall’s college and high school basketball events this fall “has forced us to make these very difficult decisions.” Mohegan Sun is a long-time partner of the Hall. Doleva says it can a operate a “near-bubble” to provide a secure environment for guests......»»

3 key takeaways from ONE: FIRE & FURY

It was another explosive night for ONE Championship as it opened 2020 in the Philippines in the most exciting way possible. On Friday, 31 January, ONE: FIRE & FURY went down in Manila, Philippines with a bang, and the martial arts world was left begging for more action. With another event in the bag, here are three key takeaways from the Mall Of Asia Arena.    Joshua Pacio’s Skills Are Growing At A Blistering Pace Any strawweight who watched Joshua “The Passion” Pacio defend his World Title against Alex “Little Rock” Silva should be concerned, especially with the 24-year-old Filipino closing all the holes in his game.  Pacio looked crisp on the feet as always, but it was his ground game that turned out to be the difference in this match.  The Baguio City native was confident to roll with one of the best grapplers in the organization and, at times, he was even on the offensive, attempting a guillotine choke and a heel hook in the bout.  “Yes I was surprised. We all know the level of Silva’s grappling, so Joshua really surprised me with the confidence that he showed in the bout – he was even the one attacking at times,” Team Lakay coach Mark Sangiao said.  With Pacio picking up confidence on the ground game to compliment his world class striking, the rest of the division looks in trouble.    “Thunder Kid” May Be The Next Big Strawweight Lito “Thunder Kid” Adiwang said in the past that entertaining fans is just as important as winning.  On Friday, he proved it was not just lip-service.  Adiwang was a burning ball of energy and then some as he needed just one round to dispatch Pongsiri “The Smiling Assassin” Mitsatit in the lead card of the night.  The 26-year-old rocked his Thai counterpart early on before raining down heavy ground and pound from the mount. Though Mitsatit survived the initial onslaught, Adiwang still finished the bout in style as he locked on a kimura and forced the submission.    The Lightweight Division Keeps Getting Deeper  Eduard “Landslide” Folayang found out firsthand how difficult his climb back to the pinnacle of the ONE Lightweight division will be after absorbing a razor-thin split decision loss to Pieter “The Archangel” Buist in the co-main event of the evening.  At age 36, Folayang has been adamant in saying he still wants to regain his World Title, and for two rounds he looked good against the bigger Dutchman.  All it took, though, was one well-timed head kick from Buist early in the third to change the direction of the match for good as the Combat Brothers standout turned the bout to his favor and later stole the victory.  Aside from Buist, who targets a showdown with ONE Lightweight World Champion Christian “The Warrior” Lee, the division also boasts top talent like Saygid Guseyn “Dagi”  Arslanaliev, Eddie “The Underground King” Alvarez, Lowen Tynanes, and Shinya “Tobikan Judan” Aoki for starters. .....»»
