Knicks intent on rebuilding and not afraid to say it

Allen Durham still determined to help Meralco win 1st PBA title View comments “We see the potential that a lot of us players have, but I mean there’s nothing wrong with rebuilding,” rookie forward Kevin Knox said.The No. 9 pick in June — the one the dry cleaning delivery guy didn’t like — had a strong summer and looks capable of being one of the league’s top first-year players. With the Knicks figuring to struggle while All-Star Kristaps Porzingis remains sidelined by a torn left ACL, they could end up with another high pick next year. Then they should have money to sign a significant free agent, and they believe an improvement in the franchise’s reputation since Mills replaced Phil Jackson and hired general manager Scott Perry and coach David Fizdale will position them to attract one.“We’re not really worried about rebuilding or nothing like that,” Knox said. “We know we have a lot of young guys, it’s going to take time but that’s not going to affect us from going out every night and playing hard and competing.”Some things to watch with the Knicks:FIERY FIZDALE? Fizdale was fired in Memphis last season after clashing with star center Marc Gasol. He said maybe he pushed too hard with a veteran team that he thought had a short window, but he probably will be more patient with a younger team whose time isn’t now.ADVERTISEMENT Phivolcs: Slim probability of Taal Volcano caldera eruption Tim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown LATEST STORIES PATIENCE WITH PORZINGIS: The 7-foot-3 forward hurt his knee in February and neither he nor the team will offer a timetable for when he might return, saying only that it won’t be until he’s 100 percent sure he’s ready.MYSTERY MAN: The Knicks used their second-round pick on Mitchell Robinson, who didn’t play in college last season, opting to prepare for the draft. The Knicks felt they needed more athleticism and hope the 7-foot former high school All-American who led the Summer League in blocked shots can provide some.HIGH ACHIEVERS, OR UNDERACHIEVERS? The Knicks signed Mario Hezonja and Noah Vonleh, both former top-10 picks who haven’t averaged in double figures in any season. The Knicks had already last season signed Trey Burke and traded for Emmanual Mudiay, also past top-10 picks who had struggled.NO NOAH: A remaining piece of business for the Knicks is finalizing the terms of their divorce with Joakim Noah, who has two years left on the $72 million deal he signed in 2015. He hasn’t been with the team since clashing with former coach Jeff Hornacek last season, and the Knicks have been holding out hope of a trade.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Japeth Aguilar embraces role, gets rewarded with Finals MVP plum Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Still, Mills believes fans are on board with the Knicks’ plan for patience, one that seems to guarantee that a 45-year drought without a title will last at least a few years more.“I grew up here and I just have a different point of view.

As Lofa Senatorial Race Heats Up in Earnest

first_imgAs the Lofa County senatorial race heats up in earnest, two out of the multiple aspirants have begun to muscle in and put their resources to work.In a week-long survey and sampling of views from citizens and residents of Voinjama and Kolba Cities in Voinjama and Kolahun Districts, Counselors Steve Hamadu Zargo and Joseph Kolako Jallah have made their presence felt.The two distinguished Liberian lawyers are eyeing the single seat that is up for grabs in the pending senatorial elections slated for October this year.Henceforth, the two Liberian lawyers continue to parade the seven administrative districts, hoping to win the hearts and minds of their people.Opinions suggest that the aspirants are both great, but differ on every socio-economic and political front in Voinjama and Kolahun Districts in Lofa County.Opinions from administrative districts in Lofa County say that Cllr. Zargo leads the poll and currently is the front runner from Lofa.He lost the previous senatorial race to current Senator George Tamba Tengbeh though the race was fiercely contested amongst several candidates.In a similar situation from the past, Cllr. Jallah lost the election but has come back to contest in Lofa County.Since then, Cllr. Zargo has concentrated business people in Voinjama District some parts of Lofa County.Besides that, Cllr. Zargo has remained Lofa County. Said he: “I, Citizen Zargo believe that living with the citizens and doing what I can to uplift, is what I am about.”His work with county officials, chiefs, citizens, and residents towards making things better in Lofa County shows what his focus is.Cllr. Zargo has been identifying with student groups by providing motivation, encouragement and critically needed funds in the form of scholarships in some of the administrative districts in Lofa County.The practicing Liberian lawyer told the Daily Observer recently in Voinjama City, that the several investment initiatives in Lofa County are aimed at making improvements in all areas, including infrastructure. A majority of Cllr. Zargo’s assistants are people centered around community-driven projects in Lofa County.In a brief chat with a political youth activist in Voinjama City recently, he noted that Cllr. Zargo has socio-economically and politically managed to get hold of the political key to the pending senatorial contest in Lofa County.Youth activist Jallah Mulbah Baysah intimated that the several development initiatives undertaken by Cllr. Zargo and team speak volumes of his commitment and dedication to see Lofa County at another formidable level.Even in Salayea and Zorzor Districts, Cllr. Zargo has an eighty percent commanding lead in popular opinions from well established Liberian business people and keen development partners in that part of Lofa County.For his part, Cllr. Jallah according to some popular opinions in Kolba City in Kolahun District has done exceptionally well in the empowering of the educational sector of the district.However, several political pundits have pointed out that Cllr. Jallah needs to spread his political wings to all parts of Lofa County as demonstrated by Cllr. Steve Zargo of the Voinjama District.Meanwhile, many citizens and residents are of the opinion that the pending senatorial race and contest in Lofa County would mean putting money in the pockets of the electorate.At the same time Cllr. Jallah has visibly extended largess to his kinsmen and women at the Lofa Community College, providing critically-needed scholarship funds to some of the students.  Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Reasons why Chelsea should cash in on £32m star – his replacement has already been found

first_img 5 5 1. Rejecting a bid in excess of £60m would be foolish business – It would take a tremendous turnaround for Hazard to suddenly rediscover his form in the second half of the campaign, yet despite his form there is one key factor still intact and that is his valuation. In terms of business, Chelsea would be foolish not to cash in now while his stock remains high. His current deal with the reigning Premier League champions doesn’t expire until the summer of 2020, and while it would be refreshing to see such a player fulfil his contract, such an offer could prove impossible for Abramovich to refuse. 3. He may fail to recover from his involvement in Eva Carneiro’s departure – While Jose Mourinho has taken the blame for the controversy surrounding the now former first-team doctor’s exit, Hazard played the most pivotal role of all. Had the forward opted to soldier on in the final few minutes of the game against Swansea following the challenge from Ashley Williams, then neither Carneiro nor Jon Fearn would have been called upon. The Belgian’s dip in form after the opening game of the season can be no coincidence. The likelihood is that he feels some guilt towards the dispute involving Carneiro, as most would, and he may never recover from the bitterness he could currently be feeling. 5 5 Eden Hazard could be on his way out of Chelsea.It was earlier reported that the Belgium international has informed close friends of his desire to leave at the end of the season, with Real Madrid and Manchester United said to be weighing up bids.While the 25-year-old is regarded as the Blues’ finest player, his performances this term have suggested that cashing in may not be an ill-judged move for the club.So, talkSPORT has taken a look at five reasons why Chelsea should, albeit reluctantly, agree to sell their no.10 in the summer.Have a read by clicking the yellow arrow above, right. 2. He isn’t impossible to replace – No player is. Even Barcelona, this season, have shown they can cope without Lionel Messi , with Neymar and Luis Suarez continuing to deliver in front of goal in the Argentine’s absence through injury. Should Chelsea sell Hazard, a replacement won’t be difficult to acquire. It could even be argued that he’s been replaced already this term by team-mate Willian. Should Hazard leave Stamford Bridge in the summer, his no.10 jersey could be reserved for the Brazilian. Not to mention Pedro is ready and waiting to prove his worth to the Stamford Bridge faithful. 5 4. He’s no Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo – After being crowned the PFA Player of the Year for an outstanding 2014/15 campaign for Chelsea, Jose Mourinho – rather foolishly – compared the winger to Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. The sad reality is, however, that the signs are Hazard does not have the mentality to stand alongside the world’s greatest. Such comparisons may even have contributed to his downfall. At 25 years old, Messi and Ronaldo were already beginning their battle for the Ballon d’Or and breaking record after record. Hazard simply isn’t close to their level, despite the hysteria surrounding his name. If a world record bid comes in, therefore, it could prove an outstanding piece of business – particularly if the money goes towards a superior replacement. 5. Players that want out have to go, no matter their quality – It’s irrelevant how good a player is; if he wants out, he has to go. This could be the case with Hazard, if reports are to be believed. There can be no room in the dressing room for an individual not committed to the club, and forcing Hazard to stay will do little to improve the mood of the camp. Only the 25-year-old himself knows if he really wants to leave Chelsea in the summer, but if he does, then so be it.last_img read more
