(AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez)OAKLAND, California — The Golden State Warriors somehow withstood LeBron James’ latest brilliance on the NBA Finals stage.A costly blunder by J.R. Smith and a disputed foul call involving James himself sure helped.ADVERTISEMENT Stephen Curry scored 29 points and the Warriors capitalized on Smith’s mistake that sent the game into overtime, overcoming a 51-point performance by James to beat Cleveland 124-114 in Game 1 on Thursday night.The game nearly over, James jawed with both Curry and Klay Thompson, then Tristan Thompson and Draymond Green tangled moments later and made contact. After replay review, Tristan Thompson received a Flagrant 2 foul and ejection with 2.6 seconds left.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownJames was in utter disbelief as regulation ended stunningly: George Hill made the first of two free throws with 4.7 seconds left after being fouled by Klay Thompson, but when Smith secured the rebound of the second, he dribbled back toward halfcourt instead of shooting, apparently thinking the Cavs had a lead.“He thought it was over. He thought we were up one,” coach Tyronn Lue said.

In 2015, when the Golden State beat the Cavs to capture the franchise’s first title in 40 years, the first two games of the series went to OT — Golden State winning the opener and Cleveland Game 2.James shot 19 for 32 to go with eight assists and eight rebounds in the opener of his eighth straight NBA Finals and ninth overall, as well as Cavs-Warriors Take IV. James notched his eighth 40-point game during this playoff run to tie Hall of Famer Jerry West’s feat in 1965 for most in a single postseason.“We’ve got to move on,” James said. “This game is over and done with. We had opportunities.”James drove past Curry for a three-point play with 50 seconds remaining in the fourth. But James was given a foul following a review with 36.4 seconds left and Durant converted a pair of free throws to tie it at 104.The call had initially been a charge on 2017 finals MVP Durant and James protested the change — while KD said afterward he thought it was the right decision because “I knew he was late on the drive and I knew I had my man beat and he came over a little late.”James called it a “huge play” and said “I knew I was outside the charge line.”“I read that play as well as I’ve read any play in my career, maybe in my life,” James said.Rules allow officials to go to replay in the final 2 minutes of regulation or in overtime to determine if a defender attempting to draw a charge was in the restricted area. When doing so, they can view if the defender was in a legal guarding position. They decided James wasn’t and changed their original call.Lue was disgusted to lose this way, saying of the overturned call: “It’s never been done, ever in the history of the game. And then tonight in the finals on the biggest stage, when our team played well, played our (butt) off, man, it ain’t right.”Lue added that the way James played, “to come up robbed, it’s just not right.” In fight vs corruption, Duterte now points to Ayala, MVP companies as ‘big fish’ NBA players’ union hires director of mental health Jury of 7 men, 5 women selected for Weinstein rape trial Winfrey details her decision to withdraw from Simmons film Durant struggled to find his stroke but wound up with 26 points on 8-for-22 shooting and nine rebounds.Golden State got a serious scare when Thompson went down after Smith slid hard into the Splash Brother’s left leg at the 6:17 mark of the first quarter. Thompson lay grimacing in pain then went to the locker room with what was called a bruised left leg that needed re-taping. He returned for the start of the second quarter to huge roars from the yellow-clad sellout crowd and scored 24 points. He and Curry each connected on five 3s.Curry drained one of those way-out-there 3-pointers that have been hard to come by this postseason to beat the halftime buzzer and Golden State shot 13 for 36 from deep.Kevin Love returned from a concussion to provide a big boost for Cleveland with 21 points and 13 rebounds.The Warriors missed the defensive presence of 2015 NBA Finals MVP Andre Iguodala, who was out for a fifth straight postseason game dealing with a bone bruise in his left knee. He is scheduled to be re-evaluated ahead of Game 2.Everybody expects another wild one with so much talent on both sides.“It was a crazy game,” Curry said. “… The finals, man, anything is liable to happen.”TIP-INSCavaliers: James has 109 career 30-point games in the playoffs, tying Michael Jordan for most ever. … Cleveland held a 19-4 advantage on the offensive glass, getting seven offensive rebounds in the first half to the Warriors’ none. … James’ first quarter: 4 for 4 with a 3-pointer, 12 points, three assists, a steal and turnover.Warriors: Curry’s early three-point play gave him the free throw he needed for 379 to pass Rick Barry (378) for first place on the Warriors’ career list. … With his 293rd career 3 in the playoffs, made in the second quarter, Thompson passed Kobe Bryant (292) for sixth place on the NBA’s list for postseason 3s. … Kevon Looney started again in place of Iguodala, but coach Steve Kerr went to McGee after the break. … Home run king Barry Bonds was in attendance. Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding Yet Smith insisted he knew the score. Green figured Smith was simply looking for James, saying, “I would have looked for LeBron, too.”“I just thought we were going to call a timeout. Because I got the rebound, I’m pretty sure I couldn’t shoot it over KD,” Smith said of Kevin Durant. “If I thought we were ahead, I would have just held on to the ball so they could foul me. Clearly that wasn’t the case.”Instead, OT.And why not? Both these teams were pushed to their limits in seven-game conference finals they each had to win on the road.“I can’t talk about a situation that way because I do some dumb stuff on the court,” Durant said of how the fourth quarter finished. “I don’t know what was going through J.R.’s head. He made a great rebound and gave them an opportunity to win the basketball game.”ADVERTISEMENT Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next View comments Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Dave Chappelle donates P1 million to Taal relief operations MOST READ Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

(AP Photo/Charles Rex Arbogast)CHICAGO — Jabari Parker recalled playing on the court with the Chicago Bulls’ logo as a young child.It was at the James Jordan Boys and Girls Club where his dad was a supervisor and not the nearby United Center. But it sure felt big time to him.ADVERTISEMENT Report: Disney dropping the ‘Fox’ from movie studio names Postponed game gives Rain or Shine more time to prepare “It was like our United Center, that gym,” he said.Now, the United Center is his home arena.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone still willing to coach Gilas but admits decision won’t be ‘simple yes or no’Parker agreed Saturday to a $40 million, two-year contract with the Bulls, hoping he can get his promising career back on track after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee two times in four seasons with the Milwaukee Bucks.“No better way to live a dream as a kid than playing down the street from where I grew up — the James Jordan Boys and Girls Club,” Parker said Wednesday. The son of a former NBA player, Parker seemed destined for big things. He led Simeon Career Academy on Chicago’s South Side to four state championships, graced the cover of Sports Illustrated, and when he committed to Duke, the announcement was televised nationally. A year later, the Bucks drafted him with the No. 2 overall pick, thinking he would help lead them to prominence in the Eastern Conference. But it didn’t quite work out that way.Parker tore his ACL for the first time just 25 games into his rookie season. He was having his best year in 2016-17, averaging 20.1 point and 6.2 rebounds, when he tore the ACL again that February. Parker played in 31 games last year, averaging 12.6 points and 4.9 rebounds.Now, instead of playing in a dynamic combo with Giannis Antetokounmpo and the rest of the Bucks, Parker will try to help a rebuilding team. The Bulls see a talented and versatile 23-year-old who could give them a big boost, assuming he stays healthy.“We’re looking at it as a great opportunity for our basketball team to improve, for Jabari to be a part of this,” executive vice president of basketball operations John Paxson said.With his ability to score inside and outside, Parker could give the Bulls another potent option to go with Lauri Markkanen and Zach LaVine in coach Fred Hoiberg’s pace-and-space system.ADVERTISEMENT In fight vs corruption, Duterte now points to Ayala, MVP companies as ‘big fish’ Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Defense could be an issue, particularly when Parker and LaVine are on the court together. But Hoiberg sees them fitting in “very well” because of their athleticism in a system that emphasizes more switching.Parker insisted he can play at the level he did prior to his second ACL tear, saying he “pretty much” showed it last season, and that the setbacks he has experienced will make him a better player.He also said he plans to reach out to former Bulls star and fellow Simeon product Derrick Rose about suiting up for the hometown team. He jumped to the defense of his fellow South Sider, who went from No. 1 pick to Rookie of the Year to All-Star to MVP before knee injuries derailed his run in Chicago.“Derrick had no lows,” Parker said. “He didn’t. Because he still maintained. Derrick is a legend, no matter what. I don’t like how you explained that. No rise and falls. Injuries are a part of life. Everybody has an injury, either athletics or normal life. Derrick is one of the best players to ever play the game and one of the best icons of Chicago. He accomplished his duty already.”Parker spoke near the Michael Jordan statue in the concourse of the United Center. And while he certainly understands what arguably the greatest NBA player ever meant to the franchise and the city, he was just born when the Bulls launched their second three-peat.Parker has a strong link to Rose, from starring at Simeon to experiencing knee injuries and now playing for the home team. If he does re-establish himself with the Bulls, it would be something Rose never really was able to do once he tore the ACL in his left knee during the 2012 playoff opener against Philadelphia.For Parker and his family, it was quite a moment. His mom, Lola Parker, was thrilled Jabari mentioned he wants to work with the Chicago Public Schools during the news conference.“I’m excited,” she said. “I’m proud that Jabari hasn’t forgotten where he’s from. We haven’t sold our house. We always kept it because we’re always in and out. It’s pretty exciting for us.” ‘High crimes and misdemeanors’: Trump impeachment trial begins LATEST STORIES Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Putin’s, Xi’s ruler-for-life moves pose challenges to West MOST READ Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Palace OKs total deployment ban on Kuwait OFWs View comments
MOST READ The claim against the NCAA and the 11 conferences that have participated in the Football Bowl Subdivision was originally brought by former West Virginia football player Shawne Alston. It was later merged with similar lawsuits, including a notable case brought by former Clemson football player Martin Jenkins.Plaintiffs argued the NCAA illegally restricts schools from compensating football and men’s and women’s basketball players beyond what is traditionally covered by a scholarship. That includes tuition, room and board and books, plus a cost-of-attendance stipend to cover incidentals such as travel.Plaintiffs touted the ruling as “monumental.”“We have proven to the court that the NCAA’s weak justifications for this unfair system are based on a self-serving mythology that does not match the facts,” said Steve Berman, the Seattle-based lead attorney for the plaintiffs. “Today’s ruling will change college sports as we know it, forever.”Feldman, though, said: “The remedy is relatively narrow and this is certainly not the sea change that the plaintiffs were looking for in college sports,”ADVERTISEMENT FILE – In this March 21, 2013, file photo taken with a fisheye lens, the NCAA logo is displayed at mid-court before Albany’s practice for a second-round game of the NCAA college basketball tournament in Philadelphia.

(AP Photo/Matt Slocum, File)The NCAA was able to claim victory Friday night after a judge ruled against the governing body for college sports in a federal antitrust lawsuit.U.S. District Judge Claudia Wilken in Oakland, California, said college football and men’s and women’s basketball players competing at the NCAA’s highest level should be permitted to receive compensation from schools beyond the current athletic scholarship, but only if the benefits are tied to education.ADVERTISEMENT Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Ginebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup title Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

NCAA rules actively provide a pathway for tens of thousands of student-athletes each year to receive a college education debt-free.The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has already said it expects to take the case. It is possible the injunction will be stayed until the Ninth Circuit rules. Feldman said both sides could have incentive to appeal the ruling.“We believe the ruling is inconsistent with the decision by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in O’Bannon,” Remy said. “That decision held that the rules governing college athletics would be better developed outside the courtroom, including rules around the education-related support that schools provide.”Wilken is the same judge who ruled on the so-called O’Bannon case, which challenged the NCAA’s right to use athletes’ names, images and likenesses without compensation. The case also produced a mixed ruling that eventually went to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.In O’Bannon, Wilken ruled schools should be permitted, but not required, to compensate athletes for use of their name, image and likeness, with payments capped at $5,000 per year. The appeals court overturned that and said payments “untethered” to education were not required by schools.”Wilken also ruled the NCAA was required to allow schools to factor in their federally determined cost of attendance into the value of an athletic scholarship. That is now common practice in major college sports, though schools were already moving toward NCAA legislation allowing for cost of attendance when Wilken made her ruling.The plaintiffs argued in the Alston case that implementation of cost-of-attendance stipends prove paying athletes even more would not hurt college sports.

That opens the door to athletes receiving more scholarship money to pursue postgraduate degrees, finish undergraduate degrees or study abroad. The NCAA could not, under the court’s injunction, limit schools if they choose to provide athletes items that could be considered school supplies such as computers, science equipment or musical instruments.“Technically the plaintiffs won the case and the NCAA will not be happy that they were found to be in violation of antitrust law, but ultimately this allows the NCAA to keep the bulk of their amateurism rules in place,” said Gabe Feldman director of the Tulane University sports law program.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissSPORTSCoronation night?SPORTSThirdy Ravena gets offers from Asia, Australian ball clubsThe plaintiffs in the so-called Alston cases were seeking much more.Plaintiffs had asked the judge to lift all NCAA caps on compensation and strike down all rules prohibiting schools from giving athletes in revenue-generating sports more financial incentives for competing. The goal was to create a free market, where conferences set rules for compensating athletes, but this ruling still allows the NCAA to prohibit cash compensation untethered to education-related expenses.

A member of the House of Representatives, J. Gabriel Nyenkan, has threatened to impeach President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, “for criminal facilitation and her role in the alleged changes in the Public Procurement Concessions Commission (PPCC) Law to favor the London-based company,Sable Mining to own the Wologizi Mountain, if the Global Witness Report were treated with credence.”Nyenkan, who represents Montserrado County District #11, said the President could also face impeachment for taking full responsibility for the bankruptcy of the National Oil Company of Liberia (NOCAL).An impeachment is an expressed power of the Legislature that allows formal charges to be brought against an elected officer of the Executive for crimes alleged to have been committed in office.Typically, the House of Representatives has the sole power of impeachments, while the Senate has the sole power to try all impeachments.On Thursday, June 23, in the House’s first floor conference room, Rep. Nyenkan quoted the Global Witness Report, ‘The Deceivers’, as saying that PPCC Chairman Prof. Willie Belleh admitted that the President was involved.“We finally got the Revised PPCC Act completed,” Belleh allegedly wrote to Sherman on August 6, 2010, according to Global Witness. “The Minister of Justice and I met with the President last night and reviewed areas of concern to her. She approved. The document has been forwarded to the National Legislature. It is expected to be fast-tracked.”Rep. Nyenkan, a former executive member of the ruling Unity Party (UP) who crossed over to the Congress for Democratic Change (CDC), is also the House Chairman for Lands, Mines Natural Resources and Environment. According to him, those who don’t believe the Report is credible should urge the Executive to stop the discriminatory indictment of some top members of the Legislature, arguing that the President should also be indicted. He said the President’s alleged role, including the approval of the amended PPCC Law, which originated from her, is tantamount to her being indicted.“Before an Act becomes a Law, there are five signatures: the House Chief Clerk, the Speaker, the Secretary of the Senate and the Vice President, and then the President,” Rep. Nyenkan said.“If we are serious about fighting corruption, the President and the Vice President should also be indicted… maybe also include the 103 lawmakers that put their hands up to vote for the changes,” Rep. Nyenkan said.“Let’s stop the political witch hunt,” he cautioned, adding, “Rep. Edwin M. Snowe, the then Chairman on Rules, Order and Administration and who is on the vanguard for the Speaker to recuse himself should be also indicted because he was Chairman on the Joint Committee that advised Plenary to pass the law.”Meanwhile, Rep. Nyenkan has also accused the Executive of instilling confusion in the government to perhaps upset the 2017 elections so that an interim government would be established, in an apparent bid to avoid members of the Executive being dragged to court for corruption, as was done to former Chairman of the National Transitional Government of Liberia the late Gyude Bryant and other officials from his administration. “There is a political theory that they want us to have an Interim Government in fear of their necks,” Rep. Nyenkan said.This is the third opposition lawmaker who has threatened the President with impeachment.Montserrado and Maryland counties’ Representatives, Acarous M. Gray and Dr. Bhofal Chambers had also threatened to bring impeachment proceedings against President Sirleaf.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

RESEDA – A Reseda post office may be named after legendary UCLA basketball coach John Wooden, a longtime San Fernando Valley resident, federal officials announced Monday. U.S. Rep. Brad Sherman, D – Sherman Oaks, introduced legislation to name the post office at 7320 Reseda Blvd. after Wooden, who led the UCLA Bruins to several Pac-10 and NCAA championships in the early 1970s. Sherman attended the University of California, Los Angeles, while Wooden was a coach there. “Passing this bill through all the hoops in Congress should be slam dunk,” Sherman said in a statement. “The coach led UCLA to victory so often that someone said he made the concept of the NCAA tournament a farce.” Wooden, 95, has lived in Encino for the last three decades.

Donegal Deputy Pearse Doherty has said that illegal dumping by rogue private operators in Donegal is a result of the ‘fragmented’ nature of the state’s regulations and sanctions regime governing waste management.The Donegal TD and Sinn Féin Finance Spokesperson has said that successive Governments have failed to seriously tackle the issue of illegal dumping and that councils were not adequately resourced to deal with the problem. Deputy Doherty’s comments came in the wake of Monday night’s RTÉ Investigates programme which alleged of long-term illegal dumping at a facility in Moville (pictured above, via RTE Investigates, Ireland’s Wild Waste). He said the programme ‘made for harrowing viewing to say the least’, but the news may not have come as a shock to some local residents.Deputy Doherty said: “The programme however simply reinforced what we in Sinn Féin and others have been saying for years when we’ve voiced our criticism of the fragmented nature of the state’s waste management regulatory framework whereby four different government agencies share responsibility for inspection and enforcement.“The complexity of the legislation in place here makes enforcement in this area very slow and tedious, something which is further compounded by a weak sanctions regime.“Similarly, the chronic underfunding of local authorities over the years by successive Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael Governments has created the perfect conditions for certain waste operators to act with impunity by flagrantly breaching the law. And while both parties have overseen what has often been a rash and ill-judged privatization of waste collection services, this has led to further fragmentation of an already weak and poorly resourced regulatory system.” Deputy Doherty acknowledged that there are reputable waste services firms operating in Donegal, but the scale of illegal dumping uncovered this week indicates a problem that is damaging to our environment and having a serious impact on our tourism industry.He said: “We now have a situation where the taxpayer will be left to pick up the bill for cleaning up these sites and undoing the damage caused by certain rogue private waste operators.“And to add insult to injury we also have the added threat of possible fines being imposed from Europe due to the actions of a few bad actors handling our waste collection services.“This is yet another example of Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael having failed to govern in the interest of ordinary people, and instead they have decided to place responsibility for important public services such as waste collection into private hands whom are simply interested in making a quick buck.“The Minister must now make a statement in the Dáil in response to the programme’s findings aired this week and set aside Dáil time to debate this serious issue. “Clearly, both the inspection and sanctions regime need to be strengthened and it’s now crucial that our local authorities are given the adequate resources to deal effectively with this problem which is now widespread across the industry.”‘Underfunding of local authorities created perfect conditions for illegal dumping’ – Doherty TD was last modified: June 20th, 2018 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:dumpingPearse Doherty TDRTE Investigateswaste services
