NBA Report: Cleveland Not Interested In Knick's Offer For Kyrie Irving

(:kyriemelohah:) @Chedda

The New York Knicks are one of the four teams Kyrie Irving told the Cavs he preferred to be traded to (along with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs), and the Knicks have been talking with the Cavs ever since.

New York has been willing to include Carmelo Anthony and several first-round picks in a deal for Irving, but Cleveland doesn't have much interest in the offer, according to Steve Kyler of Basketball Insiders.

One team that has logged real interest is the New York Knicks, their offer is believed to be built around sending out Carmelo Anthony, but as the Irving story enters its third day, there does not seem to be much interest in Anthony from the Cleveland side. The Knicks have been hoping to return something meaningful in an Anthony deal, but continue to hear that Houston is the only situation Anthony would waive his no-trade clause for.

Anthony - who does not want to play for the Knicks next season - has previously said that he would waive his no-trade clause for either the Cavs or Houston Rockets, but is now set on joining Houston. He was reportedly convinced that he would be traded to the Rockets earlier this offseason and won't settle for anything else.

Cleveland is asking for a proven veteran and a promising young player for Irving, and they won't trade him unless those demands are met. Irving does not have a no-trade clause in his contract.

Anthony, who has two years and $54 million remaining on his contract, averaged 22.4 points and 5.9 rebounds per game this past season.

NBA Derrick Rose: 'I Joined Cleveland To Win A Ring'

22 people viewing this

| By Southpaw - 8 hours ago


CLEVELAND — Derrick Rose’s goal is to win an NBA championship. He’s a little closer to one.

The free-agent guard signed a one-year contract Tuesday with the Cleveland Cavaliers, a team that has blocked his path to a title before and one that needs him now more than ever.

Rose is getting a one-year, $2.1 million deal — the veteran’s minimum, and all Cleveland could offer — from the Cavaliers, who now have a possible replacement for Kyrie Irving. Rose gives the Cavs a proven player to handle point-guard duties if they choose to trade Irving, who recently told the team he wants to be dealt despite making it to three straight NBA Finals.

And while Rose is taking a substantial pay cut (he made $21.3 million last season in New York), he’s focused on one thing.
Quote:

“I have a single focus and purpose of wanting to play to win,” he said. “Being part of a roster and organization that shares that type of commitment and being able to play with the Cavaliers and compete for a championship is the only thing that matters for me. I am very happy to be in Cleveland and look forward to getting to work.”
The Cavaliers’ pursuit of Rose seemed somewhat puzzling before Irving’s demands became public. The All-Star guard, whose three-pointer in the waning moments of Game 7 of the 2016 Finals gave Cleveland its first sports championship in 52 years, reportedly has grown tired of playing alongside LeBron James and wants to be the focal point for another team.

Rose knows what that’s like.

For seven years, he was the unquestioned star for the Chicago Bulls, who got to the Eastern Conference finals in 2011 but were beaten by James’ Miami Heat.

Now, Rose and James, both former league MVPs, are united.

James welcomed his new teammate Monday on Twitter, posting five rose emoji’s with the message: “Let’s Rock G!!”

NFL CTE Found In 99 Percent Of Donated Brains From Deceased NFL Players

2 people viewing this

| By MGz - 13 hours ago


(CNN) Chronic traumatic encephalopathy, known as CTE, was found in 99% of deceased NFL players' brains that were donated to scientific research, according to a study published Tuesday in the medical journal JAMA.

The neurodegenerative brain disease can be found in individuals who have been exposed to repeated head trauma. The disease is pathologically marked by an buildup of abnormal tau protein in the brain that can disable neuropathways and lead to a variety of clinical symptoms. These include memory loss, confusion, impaired judgment, aggression, depression, anxiety, impulse control issues and sometimes suicidal behavior.

It can only be formally diagnosed with an autopsy, and most cases, although not all, have been seen in either veterans or people who played contact sports, particularly American football.

"There's no question that there's a problem in football. That people who play football are at risk for this disease," said Dr. Ann McKee, director of Boston University's CTE Center and coauthor of the new study. "And we urgently need to find answers for not just football players, but veterans and other individuals exposed to head trauma."

The JAMA study is the largest of its kind and all of those studied were required to have football as their primary exposure to head trauma. The criteria for submitting a brain was based on exposure to repetitive head trauma, regardless of whether that individual exhibited symptoms during their lifetime.

The study points out potential bias because relatives of these players may have submitted their brains due to clinical symptoms they noticed while they were living. It also acknowledges the lack of a comparison group that represents all individuals exposed to college-level or professional football. Without that, the study lacks an overall estimate on the risk of participation in football and its effects on the brain.

Out of 202 deceased former football players total -- a combination of high school, college and professional players -- CTE was neuropathologically diagnosed in 177, the study said. The disease was identified in 110 out of 111 former NFL players. It was also found in three of the 14 high school players and 48 of the 53 college players. The study included brains of individuals who have been publicly confirmed to have had the disease, including Ken Stabler, Kevin Turner, Bubba Smith and Dave Duerson.

"The medical and scientific communities will benefit from this publication and the NFL will continue to work with a wide range of experts to improve the health of current and former NFL athletes," the NFL told CNN in a statement, noting that "there are still many unanswered questions relating to the cause, incidence and prevalence of long-term effects of head trauma such as CTE."

In 2016, the NFL publicly acknowledged for the first time a connection between football and CTE. In June 2015, a federal judge approved a class-action lawsuit settlement between the NFL and thousands of former players, providing up to $5 million per retired player for serious medical conditions associated with repeated head trauma.

"The NFL is committed to supporting scientific research into CTE and advancing progress in the prevention and treatment of head injuries," the NFL statement on the study said. "In 2016, the NFL pledged $100 million in support for independent medical research and engineering advancements in neuroscience related topics. This is in addition to the $100 million that the NFL and its partners are already spending on medical and neuroscience research."

Questions raised

The study examined both the brain pathology -- which is the behavior of the disease in the brain -- and clinical history of every participant. It identified four stages of pathological CTE severity among the brains, based on amounts of tau buildup and distribution. Stages one and two are considered to be mild and stages three and four are considered severe.

Individuals who were reported to have experienced more behavioral mood symptoms during their lifetime were more likely to have findings indicative of mild disease as opposed to severe. These symptoms occurred in 96% of mild cases and 89% of severe cases. People with a mild build up and distribution of tau were also more likely to have died by suicide. Those with a more severe build up, on the other hand, were more likely to have experienced cognitive symptoms, such as memory loss.

The behavioral and mood symptoms in people with mild disease evidence may be the result of other influences, such as neuroinflammation or axonal injury, which is an injury to the brain cells, McKee said. The question of pathology's relationship to clinical symptoms is one they're hoping to answer in future studies, she said.

Dr. Jeffrey Kutcher, national director of the Sports Neurology Clinic at the Core Institute, who was not involved in the study, agreed with the need to further understand this relationship.

"Just because we are describing the same CTE pathology, the collection of tau and the distribution that's consistent with CTE, that doesn't mean it's the only pathological process," Kutcher said. "There could be others that we are yet to identify. So I think its important that we don't just focus on one pathology, and that we start looking for others."

| By SM - 14 hours ago


OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Stephen Curry has finalized his new contract, signing his $201 million, five-year deal after he reached agreement when the free agency period began July 1.

His contract initially was the richest ever, until James Harden topped it with a $228 million extension from the Houston Rockets.

NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant also signed his new contract worth approximately $53 million over the next two years.

On Tuesday, NBA champion Golden State announced its other signings of returning free agents.

Starting center Zaza Pachulia has a $3.5 million, one-year contract. Andre Iguodala, the 2015 Finals MVP, received a three-year contract with $48 million guaranteed; fellow key reserve Shaun Livingston is getting $24 million and three years, and David West earned a one-year deal for the veteran minimum $2.3 million.

NFL Dez Bryant Upset On Twitter Over Tony Romo

Quote:

Dez Bryant is sick and tired of the Tony Romo questions; 'This is Dak's team'





OXNARD, Calif. -- Dez Bryant has moved on and he'd like everyone else to do the same.

The Cowboys' star receiver enjoyed his time catching passes from Tony Romo. He respected the team's former franchise quarterback and looked up to him.

But Dak Prescott is the team's new quarterback and Bryant would prefer that the Romo questions stop.

"It's a business," Bryant responded when first asked about Romo on Monday. "This is Dak's team. It don't feel no different."

When another Romo question came roughly 15 minutes later, Bryant shared the following.

"I can't keep talking about that," he said. "Dak's our quarterback. It's no disrespect because I love that guy, but I can't keep answering that question. I'm sorry."

Well, let's talk about Prescott then.

How has the young quarterback grown entering his second season?

"The guy is a monster," Bryant said. "I'm not trying to put a lot of pressure on him, I'm just calling it how I see it. It can only get better for him. The guys around here support him. We love him. We want to see him do great. When you got guys like that supporting you, how can you not do good? We're just going to keep standing behind him and want to see him do good. He's our leader and we're going to follow."

NBA My theory on how LeBron always lands on his feet after a chase down.(interesting read)

4 people viewing this

| By SnickerJames - 14 hours ago

He has an innate ability to always land on his feet after a chase down block no matter how off balance he is in the air or if someone is directly under him when he's about to land



How is this possible from a scientific point of few?My crack pot theory is that LeBron has reached a state in basketball that has never been reached before....Basketball Nirvana If you follow new age religion you might of heard of nirvana or a invisible 3rd eye.Well i think LeBron has developed a 3rd leg.

He uses it for balance like how a cheetah uses his tail when running.He uses it to swivel back and forth which cancels rotational inertia and minimizes torque

you can see what i mean in these gifs




he uses it while chasing down his block victim also for balance in the air.Im serious about this he has reached a transcendent state of basketball that we have never seen reached before.He's truly reached basketball nirvana.

NBA Draymond Green sued by former MSU football player: I still feel his hand on my jaw"

8 people viewing this

| By SM - 16 hours ago


Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green is facing a civil suit from former Michigan State player Jermaine Edmondson regarding an alleged bar incident in the summer of 2016.

Edmondson and his girlfriend Bianca Williams were accompanied by attorney Lisa Bloom at a news conference on Tuesday morning announcing the suit. Edmondson, who transferred from Michigan State after the alleged altercation, said he wakes up in tears sometimes because of the incident.


“I think about what happened with Draymond every day,” Edmondson said. “I still feel his hand on my jaw. There are nights when I wake up crying. I don’t understand why my name has been turned into this joke. And he gets all the credit for being a superstar and standing up for a woman.”

Bloom previously held a news conference with comedian Kathy Griffin in June after the backlash Griffin received from her faux-bloody skit involving President Donald Trump.

In July of 2016, Edmondson said that Green hit him in the face after an encounter with the NBA player for a second-straight night. He said in his statement to police last year that during the first night two men with Green choked him and another man choked his girlfriend.

The second night, he and his girlfriend were out for his birthday and they returned to the same establishment where the first incident occurred. He said Green came over to the couple and looked over his girlfriend.

He said he then confronted Green and said the previous night “wasn’t cool.” The discussion then allegedly escalated to the point where Green punched him in the face “in front of all my peers and friends.”

The initial police report after the incident said the contact was described as an open-hand slap by others and that Edmondson refused treatment at the scene for injuries sustained in the hit.

In a statement, Green referenced “misinformation” from Tuesday’s news conference.


Quote:

“This lawsuit relates to an incident that occurred in East Lansing, Michigan, over a year ago, for which Draymond paid a noise violation fine. Draymond looks forward to defending himself and clearing up the misinformation put forth today.”
Green told ESPN that he was confident the case would be resolved soon.

Green was arrested after the second altercation — when he allegedly hit Edmondson — and the police report said he expressed remorse for hitting Edmondson. He ultimately paid a fine of $560 and agreed to have no contact with Edmondson for a year after reaching a plea deal. The deal reduced Green’s charges to a noise violation from misdemeanor assault.

In the days after the incident, the school announced Edmondson’s transfer. He was set to be a redshirt senior in 2016.
