Kobe Bryant Jersey and sports drink BodyArmor might be David, but they are taking direct aim at Goliath.

In ads written and co-directed by Bryant that will debut Wednesday, the sports drink, which did $235 million in retail sales in 2017 and projects to do $400 million this year, has four of its endorsers doing things of the past. The voice-over asks if they would still do those things today, and they all answer no.

When I teamed up with Kobe, I thought I was getting an elite basketball player with great vision, Repole said. I wound up with an Oscar winner who has his fingerprints all over our creative that we deeply benefited from. He invested his money to be part of the brand versus an endorsement deal. He was in when we had 20 million in sales, so consider him a co-founder.

Repole said Bryant hasn’t been afraid to assert himself on the creative side.

He has done an amazing job, Repole said. I had one idea and he squashed it in two seconds. I said to myself, ‘OK, Womens Darius Slay Jersey I’ll go back to running the company.’

Sutton caught 68 passes for 1,085 yards and 12 touchdowns for SMU in 2017 and also went over 1,000 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns during the 2016 season. He joins Alabama’s Calvin Ridley and Maryland’s D.J. Moore at or near the top of most lists of the top receiving prospects in this year’s draft.

Then there was Rajon Rondo, who again found another gear in the playoffs. Rondo handed out 17 assists, tying Chris Paul for the most by a Pelicans player, and grabbed eight rebounds. Rondo made only three field goals but one of them was crucial: a layup with two minutes left that, along with an Ian Clark 3 on the previous possession, helped stem Portland’s run and started what has the look of a competitive series with a New Orleans road victory.

They always say a series doesn’t start until you win on the road, Gentry said. I just think if you can win the first game it kind of takes the total edge off.

Lillard countered: It’s started now then. We can’t let tonight’s loss go into the next game and we’ve got to tighten up, come back sharper and take care of home court next game.

The Jets continued to add roster depth on Friday, signing free agent running back Thomas Rawls and linebacker Neville Hewitt.

Rawls played his first three seasons in Seattle and rushed for 830 yards, averaging an NFL-best 5.6 yards per carry and scoring four TDs in his rookie season in 2015. But he was slowed by injuries the past two seasons and rushed for a total of only 506 yards, 3.0 yards per carry and three touchdowns

Kapler’s notoriously demanding workouts have taken a hit, from 90 minutes to roughly 30 at a crack, but he finds time to unwind after games. Three days a week, he’s in the weight room. Two days, he’s sprinting on a treadmill or running outdoors. The other two, he’ll clear his head by taking a walk.

For now, the focus is on setting a tone and striking a balance between old-school values and new-school innovation. When the Phillies begin their next homestand Thursday against Pittsburgh, Kapler and his team will have a winning record and a different story to tell. And chances are a kinder, gentler soundtrack will be emanating from the Citizens Bank Park stands.

Griffin had been a shooting star for the Redskins after being the No. 2 pick in the 2012 draft, taking a woebegone franchise to the playoffs in his rookie season. But he tore his ACL and LCL in his right knee to conclude the year and has never looked the same.

He spent 2016 with the Browns, only playing in five games because injuries struck again.

Kapler’s office across from the Phillies clubhouse at Citizens Bank Park is free of personal adornments. But one monument to feng shui is hard to miss. His managerial predecessors sat at a big, wooden desk readily visible to anyone who opened the office door, but Kapler moved around the corner and replaced the desk with a more ergonomically friendly model that raises and lowers at the push of a button. He subscribes to the notion that sitting is the new smoking.

Before a recent home game, Kapler emerged at 4 p.m. for his daily media briefing in the dugout. Unlike most managers, who stake out a seat and casually field questions, he stood ramrod straight and began the session with two unprompted, big-picture declarations: The Phillies have been excellent at going first-to-third on base hits, and catchers Jorge Alfaro and Andrew Knapp have done a bang-up job of pitch framing in the early going.

Adidas Wants To Sign Colin Kaepernick Jersey To A Deal But The NFL Has To Stop Blackballing Him

Georgia’s Isaiah Wynn is a plug-and-play talent after dominating SEC and Senior Bowl competition. Wynn played left tackle during the 2017聽campaign, but he’s a natural guard.聽

Wynn can take over one guard spot, while the Vikings decide whether to keep Mike Remmers along the interior or move him back to right tackle.

An offensive front featuring Remmers, Wynn, Pat Elflein, Nick Easton and Riley Reiff with Rashod Hill, Danny Isidora and Tom Compton serving as depth should provide Kirk Cousins with ample time to distribute the football.

Richelle was triggered — and told us there ain’t a chance she’d let that happen.

Barkley has been projected in various mock drafts as high as No. 1 overall to the Cleveland Browns , and to the Giants in others with the No. 2 pick .聽

Meanwhile, Giants 聽general manager Dave Gettleman suggested that he has not seen a running back prospect over the past decade that compares to Barkley.

In 10 years, no,聽 Gettleman said, when asked if he’s ever seen a running back with Barkley’s skill-set . He can string together moves and get in and out of stuff … He’s unique. There’s no doubt about it. He’s big. He’s powerful. He can step on the gas at different levels of speed. And, he catches the heck out of the ball, and he sees the blitz pickup. He’s unique.

Jets re-sign Jonotthan Harrison Jersey, host Neville Hewitt

The Jets are bringing back one of the reserves on their offensive line.
Youth Paul Millsap Authentic Navy Blue Nike Jersey: NBA Denver Nuggets #4 Road Icon Edition
Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that the team has re-signed Jonotthan Harrison on a one-year deal. Harrison spent three years with the Colts before joining the Jets last season and making one start at center in his eight appearances.

Wesley Johnson was the starter at center for the rest of the season, but remains a free agent. Free agent addition Spencer Long is his likely replacement with Harrison remaining in a backup role.

The Eagles also can wait, primarily for a team to experience another Teddy Bridgewater-style injury, creating an immediate, pressing need for help 鈥?and, in turn, the kind of windfall the Eagles enjoyed when trading Sam Bradford two Septembers ago.

The guy who may not be thrilled with how this has played out is Foles, who apparently won’t be parlaying his Super Bowl LII MVP performance into a new contract. While some still think the Eagles will give Foles a bump in his 2018 salary, he won’t be getting the kind of increase that he would have gotten if the Eagles had moved him to a team that would have installed him as the starter.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said, via Sal Paolantonio of ESPN, it is safe to say Nick Foles will remain with the team to start the 2018 season. Pederson reiterated what Eagles executive V.P. of football operations Howie Roseman said a day earlier.

Carson Wentz is coming off a knee injury, so the Eagles have a Plan 1A with Foles if Wentz isn’t ready for the start of the season. If Wentz is ready to play, then Foles will return to being a backup.

The Jets can’t be certain of having any one player available with two teams sitting in front of them, so they need to have more than one plan in hand. General Manager Mike Maccagnan Jabaal Sheard Womens Jersey said on Monday that it’s not as if we’re totally locked in to the No. 3 spot, which could conceivably mean a move in either direction before a pick is actually made. If moving down is a consideration, keeping as many players in the mix for their pick makes sense.

He returned to action about a month later, posting a .253 batting average and nine home runs.

Boone said Bird’s return will depend on how the ankle — which surgeon Dr. Martin O’Malley told Bird was great — continues to progress. He also isn’t sure what the rehab assignment will look like right now, but the fact Bird played through spring training means he likely will spend his time in the minors simply getting into baseball shape.

Per Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, that means they also get to invite Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson (Boynton Beach High), Georgia running back Sony Michel (Plantation American Heritage), and many others, since there are so many players there they scatter across the country’s top programs.

It’s possibly a slight benefit to the Dolphins over teams who don’t have as much talent in their backyard, and gives them an opportunity to bring a few extra guys in for top 30 visits that live outside the area.

But Reid said in March that he would not kneel during the national anthem during the 2018 season, but would instead find other ways to take action.

Elite Womens Howie Morenz Jersey I’m not saying I’m going to stop being active because I won’t, Reid said during Stanford’s Pro Day, which he attended in support of his brother Justin, an NFL draft prospect. I’m just going Authentic Marquise Goodwin Jersey to consider different ways to be active, different ways to bring awareness to the issues of this country and improve on the issues happening in this country.

I don’t think it will be in the form of protesting during the anthem. I say ‘during’ because it’s crazy that the narrative changed to we were ‘protesting the anthem,’ and that wasn’t the case.

Darren Woodson is the leading tackler in Cowboys franchise history, but he wonders how today’s player are going to make tackles at all, after the NFL passed a new rule banning lowering the head to initiate contact with the helmet.

Dolphins have discussed extending Cameron Wake’s contract

Defensive end Cameron Wake turned 36 in January, but it doesn’t look like the Dolphins are ready to start thinking about life without him in the lineup.

Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that the Dolphins have had internal discussions about extending Wake’s deal through the 2019 season. Those internal discussions have not progressed to negotiations with Wake at this point.

What I hadn’t realized is that Basketball-Reference also averages team and opponent possessions to calculate offensive and defensive ratings. While I understand the logic that large differences between two teams’ possessions in a single game are probably just random noise owing to those uncounted team rebounds, over time it is possible for teams to build up a surplus of extra possessions by effectively managing 2-for-1 opportunities. So I think the Hollinger model is a little better at capturing offensive and defensive performance.

The inevitable follow-up here is why, in a world in which play-by-play data allows us to track the actual number of possessions, we’re bothering to estimate them at all. Actual possession data is available on CleaningTheGlass.com, which also excludes garbage time and end-of-quarter heaves. The challenge is comparing those numbers historically to teams before the advent of play-by-play data. I like that historical perspective, which is why I continue to use the estimates. Your mileage, as always, may vary.

Last May, Thompson lost control of his vehicle, crossed the center line and hit Boone’s car. Thomspon said he lost control when his cell phone fell to the floorboard and he tried to retrieve it.

Boone spent nine days in the hospital, after suffering a broken hip, hand and rib injuries. Boone played for the Montreal Alouettes in 2015, but hasn’t played since the injury.

The lawsuit says Boone is seeking more than $25,000 in punitive and compensatory damages.

Cesar Hernandez (B), 25 percent, Philadelphia Phillies vs. Miami Marlins (RHP Trevor Richards): The Phillies have a lot of movable parts, though Hernandez has been the regular at second to open the season. Check to make sure he’s in the lineup; if he is, Hernandez will likely be leading off. He already has two steals and could add to that, since Marlins Park lends itself to small ball.buccaneers_098

2018 NFL Draft: Giants should go all in on Saquon Barkley Jersey, Justin Tuck says

As the NFL Draft nears and speculation continues as to where some of the best players out of college will call home, Giants icon Justin Tuck isn’t afraid to share his thoughts on how the Giants should approach next month’s draft.
Youth Mel Ott Authentic Grey Majestic Jersey: MLB San Francisco Giants #4 Road Cool Base
The Giants have the No. 2 pick, and many think New York should pick a quarterback that would someday succeed Eli Manning. However, former Giants defensive end thinks the opposite.

If I’m just going to come out and say it, I like Barkley, Tuck said. He gives them so many options as a third-down back who can take a lot of pressure off the O-line and make guys miss but also adding value in the pass game out of the backfield. He’s a New York product, which helps, and I think he’s the most dynamic player in the draft right now.

Barkley finished the 2017 season at Penn State with an impressive 1,271 rushing yards and 18 touchdowns. He also won the Paul Hornung Award this year as the nation’s most versatile player, and was named Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year while finishing fourth in the 2017 Heisman Trophy voting.

Both teams will be sending out lineups deep with roster hopefuls for next season. The Mavs, already without Dirk Nowitzki, Wesley Matthews and J.J. Barea, are listing Dennis Smith Marco Estrada Jersey Jr. and Dwight Powell as questionable.

Smith, though, is listed as a probable starter and is coming off 20 points and 11 assists in Sunday’s loss at Philadelphia.

My teammates did a good job of making shots (and) rolling to the rim, Smith said. That opened up a lot of opportunities for me to find a man in the corner, or even find a roller. They did a pretty good job of helping me out.

Smith has had a standout rookie season. Dallas coach Rick Carlisle expects more improvement this offseason.

In the NBA at the point guard position, you’ve got to improve on everything all the time, Carlisle said. This summer will be an effort to refine skills, shooting floaters, reads — all those kinds of things.

Defensively, he’s come light years. That might be his biggest area of growth, which is a big statement, because he’s grown a lot on the offensive side as well.

Powell (13 points, 10 rebounds) and Maxi Kleber (11 points, 10 boards) also had double-doubles against the Sixers.

Richard Sherman thinks Lamar Jackson Jersey not hiring an agent is ‘a great idea’

Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson is considered one of the top prospects at his position in this year’s class, though there is some debate about whether or not he belongs in the group of the top four players that are considered almost surefire first-round locks. Even if he’s not included among that group, however, Jackson is likely somewhere between and possible and probable first-round selection, with a range spanning from the top-15 to the top of the second round.

Ndamukong Suh and Mike Pouncey are gone. Gase and the front office are searching for those who understand how to win.

I think the common thread is we’re just trying to get guys with experience winning, who have been successful, have done it right, are professionals and are just good examples, Gase said, per the Palm Beach Hank Aaron Youth jersey Post’s Joe Schad.聽

As a result, the Dolphins signed veterans Danny Amendola, Frank Gore and Josh Sitton. Each of them is on the wrong side of 30, but they’re exactly who Gase wants in his locker room right now because they’re fully invested.聽

The Bengals haven’t performed well the last two seasons with a 13-18-1 record after making the postseason in each of the previous five campaigns. Cincinnati’s recent downturn only magnifies the fact Lewis has an 0-7 playoff record in his 15 seasons.

The team appears to have reached the point of diminishing return under the current coaching staff. Another sub-.500 campaign in a division featuring the Pittsburgh Steelers and an improved Cleveland Browns squad won’t bode well for Lewis’ future.聽

Game Kids Drew Stafford Jersey Lamar Jackson doesn’t want an agent heading into the NFL draft, and 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman supports the quarterback’s decision. Yes, it’s a great idea, Sherman said to USA Today. In terms of improving his draft stock or the amount of money he receives, there isn’t much they can do. I’m sure he has mentors and [advisers] who can guide him. Jackson’s mother, Felicia Jones, is his manager. According to USA Today, Jones heads up a team of advisers that includes a business agent, an attorney and a marketing representative.

Less than a month ago, the talented pass-catcher seemingly had plenty of leverage when it came to how the two sides might restructure the three-time Pro Bowler’s contract.

Prosecutors did not bring criminal charges against Jones, who was shown arguing with his brother while naked in a Los Angeles apartment building earlier this month. The Los Angeles County district attorney told TMZ Sports that there was insufficient evidence in the case against Jones, who attempted to smash a window on the 30th floor of the residential apartment buildng. Witnesses on the scene told TMZ that Cayleb Jones, his brother, kept Zay from seriously harming himself. Zay Jones recorded 27 receptions for 316 yards and two touchdowns during his rookie season in 2017 with the Bills, who selected him with a second-round pick out of East Carolina.

Ryan Tannehill struggled to win the starting quarterback job through a large part of his college career, played many games at receiver, and he went eighth overall. If the experts could see a long NFL career in Tannehill’s future, why can’t they project the same for JacksonThe easy answer is race. There might be something to that about Jackson, who is black. Teddy Bridgewater went lower than he should have, and so did Deshaun Watson. That’s the elephant in the room, Thomas says. It boils down to those other guys aren’t being questioned the same way. There’s probably another level of explanation that’s more Rob Blake Jersey specific to Jackson. People may be blinded by Jackson’s speed, and unable to see him as a pure passer.

Brandon Drury hit a two-run homer for the Yankees, and Giancarlo Stanton walked three times in his first career start in left field.

Drury connected off right-hander Marcus Stroman, who allowed four runs and three hits in five innings. Stroman, limited to two starts in spring training because of a sore shoulder, walked three and struck out eight.

Trailing by one with 10 seconds left in the game, Vikings quarterback Case Keenum found Stefon Diggs for a game-winning 61-yard touchdown catch and run. Though the Vikings took a 29-24 lead with no time left on the clock, league rules required them to kick a meaningless extra point. However, during the pandemonium after the play, Vikings players and staff littered the field and the Saints headed for the locker rooms. The game was delayed for several minutes before the Vikings eventually took a knee rather than kick the point after.

Smoak was right.

The switch-hitter smacked a two-run homer in the seventh inning and a go-ahead grand slam in the eighth to rally the Toronto Blue Jays past the New York Yankees 7-4 on Sunday.

Targeting means that a player takes aim at an opponent for purposes of attacking with forcible contact that goes beyond making a legal tackle or a legal block or playing the ball.

Have you caught Shohei Ohtani fever yet After months of anticipation, we got our first regular-season look at the Angels’ two-way star against major league competition, as Ohtani DH’d twice and then went six innings on the mound during L.A.’s season-opening series with the Oakland A’s.

Now that Ohtani’s quest is unfolding, we asked ESPN’s David Schoenfield and Sam Miller to weigh in with their early — emphasis on early — thoughts after watching him in action.

Of course, if the question is will he show flashes of brilliance — that’s begging the real question. We know he’ll show flashes. His tools are too good not to. The question is whether he will have the stamina, the depth of skills and the ability to adjust that will allow those flashes to turn into a well-rounded star over the course of a long season and career. One week doesn’t answer that. For now, I’ll stick with shrug, but I’m excited!
