Can Kyle Korver make Giannis Antetokounmpo a deadly shooter?

first_img Dwight Howard has been impressive in Lakers camp, Frank Vogel says “It’s really important [that] I always try to talk to him a little bit,” Antetokounmpo said of Korver (via ESPN). “And he’s a great guy. He’s not trying to get in your head or overstep and talk too much to you. Whenever he gives me tips, I always try to listen … one of the best shooters to ever play the game.”He’s definitely going to help this team, but he’s definitely going to help a lot of players develop their shooting ability.” Related News “I was beat up at the end of last season and I didn’t feel like I was able to play the way that I wanted to, so I just didn’t want it to be like that again,” Korver said. “But I still love the game. I still love competing and I still feel like I can offer something.”So as long as my family can do it, I want to keep going.”The Bucks finished last season atop the Eastern Conference with a 60-22 record. They made it to the conference finals, but lost to the Raptors in six games. Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo wants to become a better shooter and is learning as much as possible from new addition Kyle Korver: “Whenever he gives me tips, I always try to listen. One of the best shooters to ever play the game.” pic.twitter.com/julbQ32DWO— Eric Woodyard (@E_Woodyard) October 1, 2019Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer also gave Korver credit for his professionalism and said he’s excited to work with the forward.”His work ethic and attention to detail is just gonna help all of us, including me as a coach” Budenholzer said. “I always say that about Kyle: He makes me a better coach. Adding him to our group was a huge add this summer.”Korver, who is entering his 17th season in the league at age 38, said he struggled at times last season but still loves the game. Damian Lillard fires back at Shaq with new diss track: ‘Kobe won you them rings though’ Giannis Antetokounmpo is already a talented shooter, but he’s working on developing his ability even more with his new teammate Kyle Korver. The 2018-19 MVP told reporters Tuesday after the Bucks’ first day of training camp at the University of Wisconsin that he’s taking some pointers from Korver, who signed with Milwaukee in free agency after mulling retirement at the end of last season following the Jazz’s elimination from the playoffs in the first round.

Shields will then take over on an interim basis while the council searches for a permanent replacement. Shields’ monetary compensation will be discussed at a later date.Council member Jan Korte made the motion after two consecutive 30-minute executive sessions to discuss personnel matters at the council chambers.Collins has been the city manager since May 2006 when he replaced Carl Myers, who resigned at the end of 2005. Wellington city went five months without a city manager as then City Clerk Rose Miller and then Director of Public Works Rod Conwell served in interim city manager capacities. The council also voted to hold a special meeting on Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. at the council chambers to discuss further an unspecified topic that was discussed in executive session. The council was originally going to have a work session, but Council member John Tracy said the council cannot go into executive session if it is a work session.Council member Kelly Green said she didn’t think the council would need to go in executive session on Tuesday but agreed to keep the option open. Council member Vince Wetta was absent from the Thursday meeting.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more

JuJu Smith-Schuster accidentally reveals he earned $100K for watching NFL on Twitch

first_imgSteelers receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster has missed Pittsburgh’s last three games with an injury, but his side job is apparently earning him plenty of money.Smith-Schuster is a Pro Bowl receiver, but he’s also made a name for himself in the gaming community. He consistently joins other streamers on games such as Fortnite, most notably when he teamed up with Ninja and Drake, helping to break all sorts of viewing records on the streaming platform Twitch. As Twitch continues to grow in popularity, other companies have started joining the platform. That includes the NFL, which has partnered with Amazon (Twitch’s parent company) to stream “Thursday Night Football” games on the platform. This started in Week 4 and lasts through Week 15.In Week 14, Smith-Schuster joined popular streamer TimTheTatman to watch the Cowboys and Bears play. A few days later he was playing Fortnite with streamer THump and revealed he earned $100,000 simply for participating in the “Thursday Night Football” stream.NFL POWER RANKINGS:Packers, Chiefs, Bears, Titans jump; Patriots, Texans drop for Week 15“I did a stream yesterday, with TimTheTatMan, or like two days ago, we watched the Cowboys game and I got paid 100k for that,” Smith-Schuster said.His playing partner THump seemed surprised by Smith-Schuster’s admission, telling the receiver he probably shouldn’t have said that out loud. “Oh, I don’t know if you’re supposed to say that but it’s all good, it’s all good,” THump said. Smith-Schuster was talking about his payment because THump said he was surprised the receiver didn’t have more endorsements. There’s just one more Twitch stream of Thursday Night Football this season, and that’s the Week 15 matchup between the Jets and Ravens. Streamers AngryJoe, runitup and TimTheTatman will be teaming up with the platform to help promote it once again.last_img read more

Ilya Kovalchuk leaves Los Angeles Kings, contract to be terminated

first_imgThe Ilya Kovalchuk era in Los Angeles is over.On Monday, it was announced that Kovalchuk had left the team and was being placed on unconditional waivers for the purpose of terminating his contract. The 36-year-old had not played for the Kings since Nov. 9, and was reportedly being shopped around despite holding a no movement clause. TSN reported that Kovalchuk had received the final signing bonus for his contract on Sunday, but he will still count as a $6.25 million hit against the Kings’ salary cap through the end of next season. The Russian forward signed a three-year, $18.75 million deal with the Kings in 2018. MORE: Which NHL head coaches are now on the hot seat?Once he clears waivers and has his contract terminated as expected, Kovalchuk will become an unrestricted free agent. TSN’s Pierre LeBrun reported that, along with the remainder of this season’s wages, Kovalchuk will forfeit his 2020-21 salary — $4.25 million with no other bonuses, according to CapFriendly — by leaving the Kings.The first overall pick in the 2001 draft, Kovalchuk has 436 goals and 859 points in 897 NHL games. With the Kings, Kovalchuk tallied nine points (three goals) in 17 games this season.last_img read more

Klock said currently the project is about $1.8 million under budget. Right now total expenses are at $9.6 million and the project was budgeted for $11.57 million overall.“That gives you some room to work with,” Klock said. “But with a project like this, that could change quickly.”The board approved one change over and that is the purchase of $129,928 worth of security cameras at the eight USD 353 buildings. In today’s world of wacko activity, the security cameras will be installed to encompass all rooms throughout the school district. Also two Aiphones, which are wireless speakers for visitors to tap and communicate with people in the main building entrances, were approved. These will be placed the Wellington High School back entrance and at the middle school.Klock also discussed the speaker system in the two gyms at the Wellington Middle School. The debate is whether to put portable speakers in the new auxiliary gym and existing one or to go with a more permanent sound system. The board tabled this item until they could gain input from the WMS administrators.Also, Klock informed the board that the boiler in the WMS building near the kitchen will probably need to be replaced with a higher energy unit.Kennedy Elementary Principal Randy Fox asked the board if the main office at his building could be reconfigured to make it more efficient. The board took no action on his proposal but will look into it further.Later in the meeting Wellington school board Larry Mangan warned the board that it needs to be vigilant that construction workers stay on task and finish jobs at deadlines which has been an issue since the construction project started. Much of the work is expected to get done during the Christmas holiday when students are not in school.•••••Employment changesThe board approved the current resignations.•Brianna Stephenson, Wellington head volleyball coach.

Who will Tom Brady, Buccaneers play in Week 1? 5 prime-time options

first_imgBRADY COVERAGE:Why did he leave NE? | Nothing’s ‘forever’ | Who’s Pats’ next QB?Belichick main driver of New England’s success1. Packers at BuccaneersBrady’s move to the NFC South suddenly gives the league another meeting between him and Aaron Rodgers. This would be their third true showdown (Rodgers mopping up for Brett Favre vs. the Pats in 2006 doesn’t count). A Patriots-Packers Super Bowl couldn’t be assumed in the near future even if Brady had stayed in New England, and the Patriots aren’t scheduled to play the Packers again in the regular season until 2022 (although that could change next year with a 17-game season). This will not be a “Bay of Pigs” matchup, that’s for sure. 2. Saints at BuccaneersWe’re on track for Brady vs. Drew Brees twice in 2020. The first get-together could be an immediate test for both men as they try to assert dominance in the division. Brees appears committed to finishing his career in New Orleans, and now he has a fellow future Hall of Famer to beat as he tries to get to another Super Bowl. Whenever the NFL begins play this year after the coronavirus crisis ends, there will be pent-up demand from fans for pro football and big-time televised events. Tom Brady’s reported move to Tampa Bay gives the networks ample opportunity to satisfy both, based on the Buccaneers’ 2020 schedule.SN has zeroed in on the five best options for a Week 1 prime-time blockbuster, either on NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” or ESPN’s “Monday Night Football,” involving the Bucs. (The Chiefs will more than likely host the Thursday night opener on NBC, and they do play the Buccaneers this year, but that game will be in Tampa.) 3. Buccaneers at GiantsBrady’s Bucs debut against the franchise that beat him twice in the Super Bowl? In a stadium that’s just minutes from Manhattan? With one of his old assistant coaches, Joe Judge, on the other sideline making his NFL head coaching debut? Can we get Eli Manning out of retirement for this one, or at least make sure he’s in MetLife Stadium?4. Falcons at BuccaneersOh, yeah, we also get two Brady vs. Matt Ryan matchups this year. Think the 28-3 jokes are already played out? You haven’t heard (or seen) anything yet. Matty Ice is more worried about his team being relevant again in the Dirty South, but he ought to get ready for a new round of questions about THAT Super Bowl.5. Buccaneers at RaidersThere was early postseason noise about Vegas and Brady being a fit, but the Raiders turned to Marcus Mariota instead. There’s still a way to extend the connection, of course: Put this matchup under the lights for the Raiders’ first game in Nevada, with Jon Gruden’s old club as the opponent. Oh, and if you think the Tuck Rule jokes are played out, too, then you’re out of luck.last_img read more
