NBA Breaking News Sort Of: NBA Signs A 5 Year, $500 Million Deal With Tencent Holdings Limited

By Agentzer0oo0 - 14 hours ago


The N.B.A. announced late Thursday a five-year deal worth at least $500 million with the Chinese Internet giant Tencent Holdings Limited to carry games, highlights and other league content on its digital platforms, said a person briefed on the details of the agreement who was not authorized to speak publicly about it. The deal will start on July 1.

The contract calls for the N.B.A. to receive a guaranteed payment of $500 million, with $200 million more expected through a revenue sharing arrangement between the league and Tencent, a social media powerhouse, though its WeChat service. A study released earlier this week ranked Tencent the most valuable brand in China, worth $66 billion.

The deal builds upon an existing one with Tencent and makes it the league’s exclusive official digital partner in China. One of the initiatives will be the creation of N.B.A. League Pass in China, which will let fans watch games online and on their mobile devices. The deal also allows for interactive gaming and the sale of merchandise. The league believes it will reach hundreds of millions of daily users.

The deal is another element in the league’s decades-long plunge into China, where basketball is the No. 1 team sport, played by an estimated 300 million people. The first N.B.A. games were televised there in 1987, and the league has staged 18 games there since 2004. It has 18 media partners in China, and N.B.A.-licensed apparel and footwear is carried in thousands of stores there. In 2008, the N.B.A. China subsidiary was established, run by a former head of Microsoft’s China operations.

What this all means is expect that cap to go up even further next year :success2:

NBA Morris Twins being Investigated for Assualt

By sho 2010 - 15 hours ago

Phoenix Suns' twin brothers tied to possible assault probe

High-profile twin brothers who play for the Phoenix Suns could be in trouble with the law.

CBS 5 News has learned Markieff Morris and Marcus Morris are part of a possible assault investigation being handled by Phoenix police.

Police confirm they are investigating an alleged assault that occurred around 7:30 p.m. Saturday outside a gym near 15th Avenue and Colter in central Phoenix.

They would not release the name of those involved but sources tell CBS 5 News the Morris brothers are being looked at as suspects in the crime.

The twins recently signed contract extensions with the Suns worth $52 million combined over four years.

The twins are realizing their dream with the Suns of playing in the NBA on the same team.

CBS 5 News asked the suns organization about the accusations. They had no comment. The Morris twins attended Wednesday's team shoot-around.

The Morris twins also played in Wednesday night's home game against the Wizards.

NFL NFL didn't log the PSI of each Patriots football

By TheThreadLord - 15 hours ago

What was the precise PSI of each of the 12 footballs the Patriots’ offense used in the AFC Championship Game? We’ll probably never know.

NFL head of officiating Dean Blandino confirmed today that the NFL didn’t log the exact PSI of each football. According to Blandino, when officials inspect footballs to see if they’re properly inflated, they simply approve them or disapprove them.

In other words, although the Patriots did play with under-inflated footballs, the NFL hasn’t kept detailed records of whether those footballs were slightly under-inflated (which could be the result of a change in temperature) or significantly under-inflated (which would indicate that someone purposely let air out of the footballs).

The NFL will apply a low standard of proof to the Deflategate investigation, which means that the NFL doesn’t necessarily need an air-tight case to conclude that the Patriots broke the rules. But anyone who wants the NFL to get to the bottom of this should want the NFL to be as careful as it possibly can to preserve every piece of evidence it possibly can. And a detailed log of the inflation levels of each football is a piece of evidence the NFL should have.

NBA The Lakers will hand out Pau Gasol shirts to fans on Thursday. Pau plays for the Bulls now.

By timdog - 16 hours ago

Nearly seven years ago to the day, Pau Gasol was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers from the Memphis Grizzlies. His presence immediately put the Los Angeles Lakers over the top in a killer Western Conference – the team made it to the Finals in his first half-season, and after a full training camp with the team later in 2008 the Lakers won championship rings in 2009 and 2010.

Gasol’s brilliance easily melded with the stylings of the great Kobe Bryant and the perfect-for-Pau Phil Jackson, he quickly won the hearts of some of our favorite celebrity NBA fans, and his all-around game was the needed boost that gave Kobe a chance to prove to the world that he hardly needed Shaquille O’Neal to win titles, just another brilliant 7-footer (or two) to help when things got rough.

Gasol left the Lakers last summer to join an emerging Chicago Bulls squad, turning down more money along the way while citing the Bulls’ talent and Chicago’s arts scene as the main draws in his decision. The Lakers are in the middle of another frustrating year, what with Kobe Bryant working through a third consecutive season-ending injury and the franchise clearly shooting to tank the season so as to keep and enhance their odds at a great lottery pick. Gasol’s Bulls visit the Staples Center tonight, and in what we think is an unprecedented tribute, the Lakers decided to give these shirts out to fans:

*tweet embedded

That is incredibly classy.

NBA squads are increasingly taking advantage of timing and video tributes to show respect to players on opposing teams that may have done their best work on what would then be the opposing home team. Stars and former stars such as LeBron James, Luol Deng and Vince Carter have all taken in appropriate Jumbotron tributes mid-game this season, and for good reason.

This is the first time that we can recall an opposing player being part of an apparel giveaway. And at a Laker game, no less, where the punters (in the lower bowl, at least) are typically loath to cover up what they wore to be seen at the people’s parties with a lowly t-shirt. The Lakers rarely give these sorts of things out.

For Pau, though, you make an exception. And Lakers coach Byron Scott agrees:

“This is a guy who was here that helped them win two championships,” said Scott, referring to the Lakers’ title runs in 2009 and 2010. “Pau was a great player when he was here and is still a great player and having a lot of success in Chicago. Fans should show him the respect he deserves.”

For once, Byron Scott is right. Put the shirt on, El Lay, and give it up for Pau.

BOX Shannon Briggs: Ill knock Deontay Wilder out

By Ladklap - 16 hours ago


Former WBO heavyweight champion Shannon Briggs (57-6-1, 50 KOs) is talking about him facing IBF/IBO/WBA/WBO strap holder Wladimir Klitschko later this year in September. Klitschko will be 39-years-old by the time that fight takes place, and Briggs, 43, figures to beat him and then face WBC champion Deontay Wilder (33-0, 32 KOs) in a unification match that would likely bring in big numbers in the United States.

Briggs thinks he’ll not only beat the 6’7” Wilder, but knock him out in the process. I mean, it’s going to be tough as it is for Briggs to get past Wladimir, but if he can do that, he’s really going to have his work cut out for him against the hard-hitting Deontay.

A match-up between Briggs and Wilder will hinge on Briggs getting past Wladimir, because there’s no way that Wilder will ever waste his time fighting Briggs if he gets taken apart by Wladimir next September. Without Briggs coming back from Germany with Klitschko’s scalp in his possession, you really can’t sell a fight between Wilder and Briggs.

It’s been too many years since Briggs did anything in the heavyweight division in the United States, and Deontay would take major heat from boxing fans if he were to decide on facing Briggs rather than more relevant, and proven heavyweights. Of course, that can all change if Briggs knocks off Wladimir and comes back to the U.S with his IBF/IBO/WBA/WBO straps. A huge unification fight between Briggs and Wilder for all the belts would be big business in America.

“He’s OK [Wilder], but Vitali vacated the title, then [Chris] Arreola and Stiverne fought for a vacated title,” Briggs said on Buncey’s Boxing Podcast show via espn.co.uk “But who said they were the two supposed to fight for a title? The guy [Wilder] was 32-0, as soon as he fought one guy that could actually fight, it went 12 rounds. I’m not knocking the guy, but I will knock him out.”

Briggs is still a big puncher even at 43, and he’s good power when he goes to the body. However, I don’t see Briggs being able to score a body shot knockout of Wilder. Briggs doesn’t throw to the head with like he used to, and that’s the only place he’d have a chance of knocking Wilder out.

At 6’4”, Briggs has the size to reach Wilder with his shots, but I don’t think he’s got the speed, flexibility or the mobility to land his shots with any regularity. Briggs will likely get nailed by one of Wilder’s big right hands and end up on his backside before the 4th round. This won’t be one of those Vitali Klitschko beat downs of Briggs.

Vitali’s shots were so painfully slow that Briggs was able to brace for them before they would impact on his head. With Deontay, he’d be landing shots that Briggs wouldn’t see coming until after they landed, and I think Briggs wouldn’t be able to stand up to them for long without dropping for the 10 count.
