The Pelicans weren’t able to overcome the loss of center Anthony Davis, who left Monday’s 98-95 loss to the Pacers after falling on his back in the third quarter. Davis had 16 points when he left, but New Orleans kept it close. The Pelicans might have won had Dante Cunningham played better. Cunningham was 1 for 7 from the floor for 3 points. The 6-8 forward led the Pelicans with 31 minutes, but had just two rebounds and a steal to go with his poor shooting night.
The Cavs flopped in more ways than one Monday. The biggest flop may have come from All-Star forward LeBron James, who had 20 points on 6-of-18 shooting. While bringing the ball upcourt, Warriors forward Draymond Green collided with James while trying to strip the ball. James reared back and dropped to the floor, drawing a flagrant 1 foul on Green.
“… One of the main reasons I’m here is Jimmy. He’s the one who called me and got me to come here. So that’s a big part of my decision and everything else, is what Jimmy’s doing, what his future looks like and all that. And I’ve made it very clear. So I have no idea from that standpoint. You just have to wait and see and then see what works out.”
The Bulls, who have reportedly been seeking trade suitors for Butler for the past year, are currently the eighth seed with a 21-22 record.
Its been no fault of Butler, who is averaging 24.8 points, 6.8 rebounds and 4.8 assists. The 27-year-old is under control for two more seasons with a player option for 2019-20 making him a perfect Patriots Cheap Jerseys candidate for a sell-high deal.
Wade, meanwhile, has a player option for next season but doesn’t sound to San Jose Sharks Cheap Jerseys keen of being the only star on a losing team.
It looks like the Buss family drama has subsided. For now.
Jeanie Buss has been confirmed as controlling owner of the Lakers, the Los Angeles Times reported.
Jeanie and her brothers, Johnny and Jim, have been in a battle to control the team. The three agreed that Jeanie would be the controlling owner and on the team’s board of directors as long as the Lakers stay within the Buss family.
The Busses reportedly went to a Los Angeles judge on Monday morning to iron out the details and have the agreement in writing.
For Stevens, an Indianapolis native who led Butler to consecutive national championship game appearances in 2010 and 2011, this rebuffing of Indiana is becoming a sort of annual address.
In 2014: “I’ve committed to being here. I’ve already left a situation once and that was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to choose to do. This is something that as long as they want me to be here, this is what I want to be doing, and I’m going to give it everything I’ve got. I know it’s all specific to the rumor mills and the discussion of one spot. I think they’ve got a good coach (Tom Crean) who’s done a hell of a job (at Indiana). He doesn’t deserve that speculation.”
In 2015: “I don’t put any stock into (the reports). Very rarely do Nike NFL Jerseys From China people even ask me about it. Even when we went on those runs at Butler, with that winning and with those players playing as well as they did and with that attention, the thing to talk about after the season is where those coaches are going.”
In 2020, I assume: “Jeez, guys, I’ve already turned down 72 college coaching offers, including Duke, UNC and Kansas, and even rejected becoming the chairman of the Patriots Cheap Jerseys NCAA! I! Am! Not! Going! Back! To! College!”
