The other star of the auction was the famous T206 Honus Wagner card, the most famous card in sports collecting. $70 million worth of Air Jordans were purchased in the initial two months.
Part of James' dominance in the series has been his ability to digest what the Warriors want to do on both ends of the floor and countering it. "So you have to come out with a killer instinct and a punch-to-the-face mentality". "That's up to us". The pressure is now on more for the Warriors more than it has been all series and if the Cavs shot better from three by even the slimmest of margins (only 27 percent in Game 3), this series could be a lot more interesting than it already is.
Pogba, who is with the France squad to face Sweden and England, feels his own form got better as the campaign went on as he improved his fitness. He said: "I think big names in any area can always be positive and never negative influences".

Since then, he visited the North on several occasions for what could be seen as "basketball diplomacy". At the time, Mr Trump tweeted: "The only American who has met with the North Korean man child is Dennis Rodman ". NBA Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman is traveling to North Korea and is expected to arrive on Tuesday, according to North Korean officials. After his first visit in February 2013, Rodman called the North Korean leader " a friend for life " and advised President Obama to "pick ...

He points to the Lakers as the likely suspect due to the fact that Jackson just worked out for them, and he's yet to make his way to Philadelphia for a visit. LaVar has not indicated that reports like this one concern him or his son, but it will be worth monitoring as we get closer to the draft. As much as National Basketball Association fans would love to see LaVar's head explode at the idea of his son's being passed over, a one-on-none or even one-on-one workout environment is not ideal ...
And the knee? How bad was it? But there's only so much you can do against certain guys. "That's such a subjective [thing]", said Curry. "I think we were being too respectful, honestly", Smith told ESPN . And he's probably, nearly certainly, correct. Monday's game is at home for the Warriors, as would be Game 7 if the series is to advance. "We got a golden opportunity going home on Monday to close one out", Green said.

The series seemed over as the teams traveled to Oracle Arena. "We ran a lot of on-ball stuff in the first half, we ran a lot of off-ball stuff in the second half". In other words, they held the crap out of him off ball. "If we don't stick to that game plan, then we'll be going back home without a game".

Some thought of it as some bad luck at first, but it apparently worked out for the Penguins . The Predators certainly looked ready in games three and four, outscoring the Penguins 9-2. The Penguins' offense looked as good as it has this entire Final in Monday's 4-1 loss. Four of the prior 12 clubs went on to win the Cup: the 1966 and 1971 Montreal Canadiens, 2009 Penguins and 2011 Boston Bruins.
Meanwhile, England captain Harry Kane has described his last-gasp equaliser that broke Scotland's hearts as the greatest moment of his career so far.

Also in the third, LeBron James and Kevin Durant exchanged words during a stoppage in play (officials were reviewing a foul on Kevin Love that was upgraded to a flagrant-one when video showed Love whacked Durant in the head).

Instead veteran defender Jalal Hosseini, Lokomotiva Zagreb midfielder Ali Karimi and Panionios playmaker Masoud Shojaei got the nod from coach Carlos Queiroz.

Andrew Fifita of NSW attacks during Game 1 of the State of Origin rugby league against Queensland . "Corey is a winger that's been manufactured over the time". "With his size and the way he plays the game he's probably more suited to the forwards, but he's made a fist of it on the wing".
I don't see anything amusing or anything to smile about. It's also the mentality the Warriors carried into Game 4 in Portland, where they piled up a 28-5 first-quarter lead and won by 25. They can definitely repeat it, so we got to do the job to stop them and make them uncomfortable. It's been about them proving that previous year was a fluke, KD validating the move here, which it's been validated, but, no.

And I believe the same thing over here in this tournament and the last one. Three of the four teams in the semi-finals are from the sub-continent, with hosts England being the only exception.

The two teams returned to complete the suspended second game with Wake (43-19) leading 5-4 in the bottom of the fifth. Wake Forest scored all eight of its runs on five home runs.

The Predators made their National Hockey League debut in the Music City in 1998 and had never been beyond the second round in nine previous play-off appearances. "We never gave up", Fisher said.

The most recent of those near misses came in at the end of last season, when Juventus lost 4-1 to Real Madrid at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.
