It*s worth noting that the Spurs have done pretty well this season so far without Leonard. Could they demand a slew of first-round picks from a fringe contender in the East determined to win now, like the 76ers? That could give the impression to their fanbase that they are set on a rebuild, though. But acquiring a superstar in return for Leonard〞say, Russell Westbrook〞is going to be fraught with difficulty.

converse ox breakpoint,In yesterday*s pregame shoot-around before the Cavaliers went toe-to-toe with the San Antonio Spurs, Derrick Rose was seen wearing the ninth model of his signature shoe line with adidas 每 the D Rose 9. The most significant change on the upcoming Derrick Rose signature shoe is that it no longer features BOOST, a cushioning unit that was a mainstay with the embattled former MVP*s signature shoes since the debut of the D Rose 5. It is likely that the Three Stripes chose to design this sneaker without its patented foam technology in order to lower the price-point as a response to the falling demand and market for Rose*s sneakers. Is is likely that Derrick Rose*s upcoming shoes will feature BOUNCE technology, which is currently featured in brand-mate Damian Lillard*s signature shoe, the Dame 4, so it*s possible that the MSRP of the upcoming D Rose 9 will be closer to 5 than the current 0 MSRP of the D Rose 8. Earlier photos of the ninth shoe revealed ADIWEAR, which is likely a foam-based cushioning.! New Balance*s recently revised 574 silhouette is off to a strong start in 2018 with the drop of the clean and creative ※Peaks to Streets§ pack.

So how did a relationship that started with so much promise end so abruptly? There*s no one answer, but rather a few driving factors that have led to Jagr*s imminent departure from Calgary.As a slow-footed &old guy* in a speed-emphasized, young man*s NHL, production trumps everything. Unfortunately for Jagr and the Flames, his offensive-output has dropped dramatically just one season removed from a 46-point (0.56 PPG) campaign with the Panthers. Through 22 games with Calgary, Jagr*s point-per-game pace of 0.31 is the worst of his career, as is his minuscule 3.1 shooting percentage. His primary point production has dropped off mightily, too, with his primary-points-per-60 (all situations) falling over 30 percent to 1.05 this season from 1.55 in 2016-17.There are reasons for this monumental drop in offensive production that extend far beyond Jagr*s dwindling skillset. A decline in ice time and a lack of opportunities in choice situations has certainly effected Jagr*s output, as has an unusual run-in with the injury bug, which the soon-to-be 46-year-old has avoided for the majority of his 24-season NHL career.Since arriving on youth-laden Flames club, Jagr has seen his overall ice time lessened by almost 25 percent. His 13:03 TOI this season is over four minutes less than the 17:06 he averaged the past three seasons, with the majority of that coming at even strength, and while skating on the Flames* third and fourth lines. Jagr has played just 34:51 on the power play through 22 games this season, an average of just over a minute-and-a-half per game. Last season with the Panthers, Jagr averaged just under three minutes TOI per contest with his team a man up.Offensive output along with opportunities to produce are down big time, and maybe the biggest reason for that is Jagr*s inability to stay healthy as he has his entire career. Though he was just a young-buck at the tender age of 44-45, Jagr dressed in all 82 games for Florida last season, the sixth time in his career that he*s suited up for every single one of his team*s contests. The eight-time All Star has dressed in at least 75 games an astonishing 16 campaigns during his career, and has missed just 20 of 458 games (4.4%) since his 39-year-old season in 2012-13. This season alone, Jagr has been sidelined for a whopping 49% of Calgary*s game, missing 21 contests with a lingering lower-body injury which has plagued the two-time Stanley Cup champion for the better part of four months.NASCAR fans are used to hearing controversial things out of Kyle Busch*s mouth 〞 not his brother*s.

During the NASCAR Media Tour in Charlotte, N.C., on Tuesday, Kyle said the sport*s emphasis on marketing young drivers is ※stupid.§ Fellow drivers ripped the ever-opinionated Kyle for the comments, but NASCAR itself said the remarks were ※fair.§ Enter Kyle*s brother, Kurt Busch.

Rafa Nadal stole headlines earlier in the tournament when he wore a sleeveless shirt at the Australian Open recently. It is not a look that Federer dares to replicate. The reason is quite simple, according to Federer. World number one-ranked tennis player Rafa Nadal caused a racket this month. Not because he was forced to withdraw from the Australian Open due to injury, but because he went on the court to play wearing a sleeveless shirt. It is not a trend we can expect Nadal's playing rival Roger Federer to replicate. Not because Federer doesn't love Nadal's.Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer Close Previously worked at Indianapolis Star, covering the Indiana Pacers for nine seasons Also covered Vikings for St. Paul Pioneer Press Follow on Twitter Mike Wells: I think there*s a pretty chance that NC State defensive lineman Bradley Chubb will still be on the board when the Indianapolis Colts draft at No. 3 overall. That*s because the Cleveland Browns and the New York Giants, the teams with the top two picks, both need quarterbacks for the present or the future. The bigger concern -- if you want to call it that -- is that the Colts might not be in the position to choose between Chubb and Penn State running back Saquon Barkley at No. 3. Indianapolis needs help.Mike Schmitz ESPN With 21-year-old rookie stat-stuffer Ben Simmons and 23-year-old All-Star starter Joel Embiid as cornerstones, the Philadelphia 76ers have one of the most exciting young cores in the NBA. Sprinkle in high-level role starters such as Dario Saric (23) and Robert Covington (27), and young bench contributors T.J. McConnell (25) and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot (22) and there's reason for the optimism flowing through Philly, even with prized No. 1 pick Markelle Fultz yet to regain form. The Sixers are competitive (No. 7 in the East) while still sitting on young talent and future assets. But with all the well-deserved focus on Philly's talented, young roster and its future draft picks,2018 Dallas Cowboys Mock Draft Tracker - John Hancock, DallasNews Ten experts make their draft predictions for who they believe the Cowboys will select with the 19th overall pick. Here's from Mel Kiper Jr.'s pick: The rest of the experts are picking the following players: DT Maurice Hurst (3), DT Da'Ron Payne (2), DT Christian Wilkins [did not enter the draft], WR Michael Gallup, WR Christian Kirk, S Derwin James, Check out the write-up on each in the orginal article. If you've ever watched the Cowboy war room when they are on the clock in the second round, you can usually see them pretty excited about a player still left on the board. Last year, that excitement came from Chidobe Awuzie, A couple weeks ago, Matt Provenzano went over how the Yankees looked according to Dan Szymborski*s ZiPS projections. Spoiler alert: they look good. Projections are not a fail-safe, and reality will always diverge from what is forecast. That the Yankees project demonstrably better now than they did in recent years, however, can only be taken as a good sign. There are other teams the Yankees must contend with, however. Chief among them are the Red Sox. Indeed, Boston has won the AL East each of the past two seasons. No matter how good the Yankees look moving forward, the Red Sox are still here, and they must be taken seriously. Just how seriously? It helps to once again turn to ZiPS to get a feel.It*s the worst-kept secret in the NBA that the Los Angeles Lakers have plans on luring two big free agents this summer, but in order to do so they will need to clear some salary cap space. Jordan Clarkson and Julius Randle have been mentioned ad nauseum as potential trade candidates, but a somewhat surprising inclusion recently was Larry Nance Jr. Once called the team*s secret weapon by president of basketball operations Magic Johnson, Nance began the season as a starter, but now comes off the bench. Either way, he constantly provides excellent defense and hustle, even as his offensive game hasn*t developed as much as many had hoped, himself included. Many viewed the Lakers possibly shopping.The Cavaliers' Dwyane Wade posted an emotional farewell to Instagram on Saturday after the passing of his agent Henry "Hank" Thomas. A representative from Thomas' agency, CAA, confirmed his passing to Sports Illustrated. Wade had missed the Cavaliers game on Friday night against the Pacers with a "family emergency." In the post, Wade wrote about how Thomas served as a father figure to him and he wished he would be there for the next moments in his life. A post shared by dwyanewade (@dwyanewade) on Jan 27, 2018 at 12:32pm PST Coach Tyronn Lue said Friday that general manager Koby Altman talked with Wade and told him to "take his time" with the issue.

Does no one else see the awkwardness here? We*re not going to sugar coat it〞the stove is so cold it*s actually a freezer. But is there light at the end of this frigid tunnel? These are the one remaining free-agent fit for every team. The Royals have re-signed Alcides Escobar. The Mets have re-signed veteran infielder Jose Reyes. As reported by our Sports Boy Wonder Chris Cotillo,The Cardinals have been fairly quiet since their Dec. 14 trade for Marcell Ozuna. While the Ozuna addition surely moves the needle when it comes to the Cardinals' chances of making the postseason in 2018, needs remain. Mostly, the focus has been on third base. While you can certainly argue that a known quantity in the infield is called for, I'd argue the rotation presents more of a need. Here's why that's the case ... 1. The Cardinals have lost a lot of starts from last season. In keeping with ancient tradition and the rulebook, the Cardinals played 162 games in 2017. Lance Lynn and Mike Leake combined to start 59 of those 162 games, or 36.4 percent of them. Lynn is of course one of the many.. Mike Zimmer is in the market for a starting quarterback and an offensive coordinator. Two job openings linked closely together that will have a significant impact on the direction the Vikings take following an NFC Championship Game appearance. Zimmer has to get this right. Both decisions. Often when teams go searching for a quarterback and offensive coordinator, something went horribly wrong. They're usually starting over. That's not Zimmer's reality. His team is built to contend now. The Vikings' no-show dud in Philadelphia won't lower expectations by meaningful degree, as long as Zimmer and general manager Rick Spielman don't whiff on those two pressing needs 每 quarterback and offensive coordinator.That's why Bill Belichick credited one current and one former member of the coaching staff, Josh McDaniels and Mike Lombardi, with helping the Patriots land those two key offensive cogs a week-and-a-half before taking on the Eagles in Super Bowl LII.Amendola, who scored two fourth-quarter touchdowns in the AFC title game against the Jaguars to help the Patriots overcome a 10-point deficit, spent just 2011 season with McDaniels (then the Rams offensive coordinator), and Amendola was hurt for the majority of that year, playing in just one regular-season game.Though that doesn't seem like much, Belichick said McDaniels' experience with Amendola was critical in knowing he was a player the Patriots should pursue. Without any assurances that Wes Welker would be back in 2013, that's exactly what they did. Really, the light went on with Josh," Belichick said Wednesday. "Josh was here. Josh had had him in St. Louis, and we saw a good player in St. Louis, but you didn't see all the things behind the scenes that you kind of can see when you actually have the player on your team.Josh saw that, and he made me aware of -- us aware -- of what all the things that Danny does, and how well he does [them], and what his skills were and so forth. That's kind of when it started, and once we got him here, then all that became evident to everybody who works with him.".adidas* EQT Support RF silhouette keeps it as close to the OG construction from the 90s as possible while still implementing the Three Stripes cutting edge Primeknit tooling.

LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers are in complete and total disarray, and the star forward reportedly is very unhappy with the return the team got in the trade for Kyrie Irving. The star guard demanded a trade this past offseason in order to get out of James* shadow, and Cleveland ended up trading him to the Boston Celtics for Isaiah Thomas, Ante Zizic, Jae Crowder and the Brooklyn Nets* 2018 first-round draft pick. And as the Cavs continue their downward spiral, James reportedly is ※pissed off§ the Cavs didn*t pull the trigger on a trade that would have netted them a lot more than Thomas, according to ESPN*s Brian Windhorst. ※What*s really pissing LeBron off is that he felt like the Cavs.Nick Foles is one win away from being a Super Bowl champion. If that doesn't sum up 2017 or any other wildly unpredictable NFL season, then what does? The Philadelphia Eagles seemed almost destined for a long-awaited title run when their second-year phenom, the one and only Carson Wentz, took the team to nine straight wins and an 11-2 record before injuring his knee, and yet here we are, Bill Belichick and Tom Brady around the corner, and Foles commanding the NFC's last remaining hope to unseat the New England Patriots. Now if Foles has any chance of besting Belichick and Brady on the season's biggest stage, under the season's brightest lights, he'll probably have some help from an Eagles staff.At the end of the 2017 NFL season, it was wildly apparent that Michael Crabtree was unhappy with the Oakland Raiders coaching staff. So much so, that Crabtree even pulled himself out of the team's final game. Obviously, the backlash was pretty severe, and even in the week or so leading up to the final game or two, reports came out that the Raiders were going to part ways with Crabtree during the upcoming offseason. Part of this may have played a role in Crabtree's frustrations, and spoke with quarterback Derek Carr about the entire situation surrounding the team's talented wide receiver. As cited, Carr had an interesting response to question about Crabtree.

They got three legitimate prospects back for Christian Yelich, and the fourth isn't nothing, which makes this the best trade they've made in this cash-grab offseason.

After a stumbling start to his first season in wine and gold, Crowder has picked things up a bit of late, averaging 10.5 points per game on 58.5 percent shooting over his last six games.

One simple, dressed in a color scheme made up of neutral colors, and the other draped in a vibrant orange, it shows the versatility of this clunky design. Sticking with one of adidas* common themes, the Yung-1 utilizes the upper of the vintage adidas Falcon and places it atop a brand new sole unit. Due to its bulky aesthetic, the sneaker has drawn comparisons to the adidas Yeezy 700 Wave Runner as well.

The Denver Broncos are one of multiple teams likely to target a new quarterback in the top 10 picks of the 2018 NFL draft, but which of them will still be on the board when they make their selection? In the latest 2018 NFL mock draft from CBS Sports, the Broncos luck out by getting the most pro-ready passer in this year*s draft at No. 5 overall, as UCLA*s Josh Rosen falls right into their lap. After the Cleveland Browns opt for USC*s Sam Darnold at No. 1 overall, the New York Giants to pass on Rosen and the rest of this year*s top quarterbacks at No. 2, preferring Penn State running back Saquon Barkley.

General manager John Lynch will have some 0-million in cap space and nine selections in the NFL draft to continue rebuilding the roster with coach Kyle Shanahan.

Veteran center Daniel Kilgore and guard.Other than LeBron James scoring his 30,000th point, not a lot is going right for the Cleveland Cavaliers lately. Team unrest has taken over the headlines, as the Cavs have dropped seven of their last 10 games, coinciding with Isaiah Thomas* return to the lineup. Players are reportedly sniping at teammates during team meetings. Nowhere was the team discord more evident than on the floor during the Cavs* 114-102 loss Tuesday to the Spurs. After Kevin Love takes an elbow to the face from LaMarcus Aldridge and falls down, not one Cavs teammate goes over to help him up. In fact, Jae Crowder stepped over Love, who had his hand extended, to take the ball out of bounds.

The New York Rangers face a question they likely haven*t considered much in recent seasons: should they be buyers or sellers when the trade deadline approaches? Through 49 games, the Rangers have earned 53 points with a 24-20-5 record; that puts them just outside of the second wild card seed, where the Pittsburgh Penguins stand with 55 points. Five teams in the Metropolitan Division are ahead of the Rangers in the standings, and all five are currently in a playoff spot. Right now, the Rangers are two points behind both wild card seeds, three points away from the Philadelphia Flyers in third place, and eight points behind the first place Washington Capitals.

The Bulls hoped to have at least one rising star in this redevelopment transition season. They have two, according to the NBA.

His fame came from some notoriety, but it*s not like that hasn*t been in the McMahon*s WWE playbook.. James Harden took to Instagram yesterday to offer a first-look preview of his upcoming Y-3 JH BOOST silhouette that just made its debut on the runway during Paris Fashion week. The perrenial scorer*s adidas Harden Vol 2. is scheduled to make its long awaited debut in the middle of February, also coming equipped with a full-length BOOST midsole. From the first look that Harden provided on his page it is clear that aesthetics from both his signature line and the Y-3 collection are present on this model, as it sports signature tooling that fans of Yohji Yamamoto*s designs have become accustomed to.

If Irving is portrayed as a less valuable asset, the return he fetched won*t look quite as underwhelming.

  • Setting aside the ways in which that might further complicate an already delicate situation 〞 a demotion just eight games removed from significant injury likely wouldn*t sit well with Thomas, a proud vet who*s also staring down the barrel of unrestricted free agency and has been very open about his need for more reps and more time to get back to his All-Star form 〞 there*s also the nettlesome matter of Cleveland*s failings not really being Thomas* fault. Hardly anyone in the Cavs rotation has held up his end of the bargain of late 〞 including, for what it*s worth, Thompson, who hasn*t often been his typically bruising and energetic self off the bench.

  • NYC-based creative Bloody Osiris just gave the world a look at the OFF WHITE x Air Jordan 1 in the upcoming White colorway, rumored to release in late February. This white colorway was confirmed by Virgil Alboh to drop in 2018, although many of the pairs floating around social media were called out by the OFF WHITE founder himself to be fake. Although partially shrouded by his oversized pants, the OFF WHITE x Air Jordan 1 in white features the same details as the first pair. Moreover, it is rumored that this colorway will be just as limited as the ※Chicago§ pair. See the on-foot shots ahead and stay tuned for official release info.adidas Originals is preparing to blend classic footwear design elements with contemporary perspective by introducing a brand new women*s lifestyle silhouette 每 the Everyn.

  • For the first time in its history, Jordan Brand is taking the famed ※Olive§ colorway that originated in 1994 and placing it on a silhouette other than the Air Jordan 9. This weekend, the Air Jordan 13 dons the aforementioned colorway dipped in suede, sporting a primarily black color scheme on its upper with olive on its mudguard and heel while red dressed up the Jordan Branding. Suede comes as a bit of a surprise as it is not often-used on this silhouette, usually opting for a combination of leather and other synthetic textiles. Mark your calendars for January 20th, when the upcoming Air Jordan 13 ※Olive§ arrives at Jordan Brand retailers like Sneaker Politics with an MSRP of 0 USD.
    One of the earlier Chinese New Year selections to surface this year was the Air Force 1 Low. Previously confirmed to be dropping in two versions back in September, the styling with the fireworks emblazoned outside of the Swoosh have an official set of images below. While Nike usually opts for a tribute to the year*s corresponding animal zodiac sign, the Swoosh*s aesthetic sticks to fireworks and floral patterns this time around. No official release information is available for this AF1 low, but expect them too arrive before the ※Lunar New Year§ on February 16th. Which CNY design is your favorite?You could argue a few of those teams are currently utilizing legitimate strategies. Both the Braves and White Sox have tanked recently, but did so in order to build excellent farm systems. Things do look promising for both clubs moving forward. They*ve taken the Houston Astros-Chicago Cubs path to contention.

  • The Cavs reportedly ※checked in§ on Walker after Charlotte put him on the trade block. The 6-foot-1, 170-pound Walker isn*t exactly a lockdown defender, but he*d be an upgrade over what the Cavs trot out at the point of attack now, while bringing the mix of pick-and-roll playmaking and 3-point shooting, both on and off the ball, that Cleveland*s been missing. (He*s also locked up for next year on a bargain contract, ensuring you*ve got one more high-level, likable player around should LeBron decide to leave this summer.) Williams is exactly the kind of floor-spacing forward who tends to thrive alongside LeBron. He also plays defense, which is nice.嚗
