Odom an answer or question?

first_imgAssistant coach Kurt Rambis, who ran Monday’s practice while Phil Jackson went to the dentist, acknowledged that Odom would be putting himself in position where he could aggravate his shoulder just by trying to secure a rebound. “You put that shoulder in a situation where you’re reaching back and somebody grabs it, you know it’s going to hurt,” Rambis said. “So it’s something that he’s going to have to continue to fight through and play. “We hope that like he showed today, that he can play through that and he can block it out and be aggressive, and that’s what we need from him.” Odom has been vague about the state of his shoulder, although he reported no pain after practice. He would not commit to the offseason surgery and said of his first day back: “I’m just taking my time. I’ll mix it up a little bit more tomorrow.” Walton, meanwhile, remain- ed on track to return against Denver. He said he started feeling weakness in his injured right ankle only at the end of practice, after he had become fatigued from playing in three full-court games. The Lakers have gone just 6-15 without Walton. Not that Walton expected his return (along with Odom’s) to provide any guaranteed relief from the Lakers’ collective misery. Their last three losses have come by an average of 24 points. “It’s not that simple,” Walton said. “We’re not playing like a team right now. Just throwing guys back in there is not going to make it happen. It’ll help, because I think Lamar and I are both very unselfish players. “But we’ve got to do it as a team. We have to all start buying into the offense again, and our defense, we’re not even playing any defense. We’ve got to as a team come together and decide we want to start stopping people.” LAKERS NOTES: The NBA assessed Kobe Bryant a Type 1 flagrant foul for an elbow he delivered to the head of Philadelphia’s Kyle Korver late in the first half of Friday’s loss. No foul was called on the play. … Bryant and Brian Cook were excused from Monday’s practice. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! There were positive reviews for both players, whose return undoubtedly will help stabilize a team that has lost 12 of its last 15 games. Whether Odom, though, will be an attacking player or one who is protecting his left shoulder remains to be seen. “I’m going to go out there and play at full throttle,” Odom said. When he is at his aggressive best, Odom is one of the NBA’s most dynamic players, attacking the basket. When he is at his passive worst, Odom is largely a jump shooter, taking up residence on the perimeter. Odom was the first player before he injured his right knee in December and the second player after he returned. The Lakers won just six of 17 games with him back; Odom averaged 15.2 points, 10.4 rebounds and 4.3 assists but shot 41.7 percent. Now the question is, which Odom will return for the final 18 games of the season? How Odom goes likely will determine whether the Lakers can make something out of this injury-ravaged season. center_img EL SEGUNDO – As if the questions about their second six-game losing streak of the season and their 36-point drubbing by Dallas weren’t enough, the Lakers also have to wonder just what player they will be getting back this week in Lamar Odom. Odom returned to the practice court Monday – along with forward Luke Walton – and is hopeful of playing Thursday at Denver. That would be less than two weeks after suffering a torn labrum that likely will require surgery after the season. last_img read more

DD Fitness: Weight loss products and online influencers who lie to their followers

first_imgThere is no end to the amount of weight loss products that have entered the market here in the last few years.Every month, a new company come along with their new product that is ‘guaranteed’ to help you to lose weight.It isn’t surprising that they help you to lose weight when they all seem to follow an extremely low-calorie diet model that revolves around 2 shakes and one meal. Then if you are hungry, you always have their other supplements or snacks that you can also buy, or their reps can sell you.That’s a good scenario.The other scenarios are the tea and coffee sellers who push laxatives disguised as weight loss drinks onto their customers.This time, you can eat healthy meals, but they don’t get to stay in you very long as you will be dispersing them out of your system as fast as they go in. I’ll make this very simple.THERE ARE NO QUICK FIXES THAT WILL ALLOW YOU TO LOSE WEIGHT AND KEEP IT OFF!But the real issue that is happening right now is that these companies are recruiting online and local ‘influencers’ to promote and sell these products.There are 2 types of these ‘influencers’People who don’t know any better and think the products actually do help.People who know the products are a scam but sell them anyways.While you may think of giving a bit of leeway to the people in the 1st category, the fact remains that if they don’t understand nutrition, they have no business selling this nonsense. But, the people in the 2nd category are the real issue.They know and understand that the products are short term money wasters, and no one will keep the weight off long term.But they still lie to their followers and they still lie to their friends to get them to buy it.They also, then push these people to become sales reps and give them this imaginary dream that they will become rich from selling the products. They sound as if they have the answers to all your weight loss and financial problems.They don’t.Make no mistake about it, the reality is that all they want is your money and they want you to sell more, so THEY can make more money.The REAL money comes from getting people to sell for them.Instagram is currently riddled with these ‘influencers’ and it’s disgusting to watch.Unfortunately, it seems as if there will always be a place for these products in the market.Firstly, because there are always opportunists waiting to make money from people who are either desperate or are willing to try anything to help them to lose weight.Secondly, because there will always be people who want to do as little as possible to try and get the results, they want(They usually complain about how they can never keep the weight off)There are no quick fixes when it comes to sustainable weight loss.If you want to really lose weight and keep it off, you probably know by now that weight loss products AREN’T the way to go.#leanin2019If you would like help to lose weight in a sustainable way by eating tasty food, then my lean in 2019 program can help.We are always welcoming new members in and you can and out all information through the link below.FIND OUT MORE HERE!DD Fitness: Weight loss products and online influencers who lie to their followers was last modified: August 16th, 2019 by Emmet RusheShare 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)last_img read more

World Cup 2019: Need to move on quickly from England loss, says Faf Du Plessis

first_imgSouth Africa will have to move on quickly from the drubbing it received in the World Cup opener against England and regroup themselves before its next game against Bangladesh, said captain Faf du Plessis.South Africa was thrashed by 104 runs by favorites England in the opening match of the ICC World Cup, which began at The Oval on Thursday.Asked to bat, England made 311 for eight and then bundled out the Proteas for 207.Du Plessis admitted they were outplayed in all facets of the game by England.”You are going to play games and come up against opposition that is better than you. England beat us in all three facets of the game,” Du Plessis said after the defeat.”As much as we are disappointed, we will want to learn from it quickly and put it to bed. We want to move on from it quickly.”South Africa will face Bangladesh in its second match at The Oval on Sunday.South Africa witnessed a bad start to its chase when veteran opener Hashim Amla was forced to retire hurt after being hit on the head.The right-hander later returned but by then Jofra Archer-led England bowling attack had already caused the damage.”The flow of the innings unfortunately started with Hashim coming off. When you are chasing a big score like 312, you need a good start to settle the dressing room,” Du Plessis said.”A good start is really important. With him coming off, a few overs later Aiden (Markram) got out and then I got out. When you go three down, it becomes tough and the score looks big, it looks too far.advertisement”The pitch was good enough.”Du Plessis backed his decision to start the innings with Imran Tahir in place of Kagiso Rabada and the ploy worked wonders as the leg-spinner got rid off Jonny Bairstow with the second delivery of the tournament.”It was a plan. It was something we first thought about a year ago. When we played against England, I thought we want to go with him because it is different,” Du Plessis said.”At The Oval, you want to bowl two seamers first but we went with what I thought was the best way to get a wicket. I went with my gut.”Imran had not bowled with the new ball before so he had been practicing that for the last two weeks. He knew he was going to do that today,” he added.Also Read | BCCI suspends Rinku after letting off Pathan, Anuj with warningAlso Read | Mohammad Amir doubtful for Pakistan’s World Cup opener against West IndiesAlso Seelast_img read more

Amit Jogi taken to hospital for chest pain brought back later

first_imgBilaspur: Janata Congress Chhattisgarh (J) chief Amit Jogi, arrested for allegedly providing wrong information in a poll affidavit, was taken to a hospital Wednesday night as he complained of chest pain.He was brought back to the jail a few hours later after treatment, a police official said. Amit, son of former Chhattisgarh chief minister Ajit Jogi, is lodged in Gaurela sub-jail in Bilaspur district. He complained of chest pain and breathing problem on Wednesday night. He was shifted to a local community health centre around 10.30 pm , said Gaurela station house officer Dinesh Kurre. After a check-up, he was shifted to government-run MCH Hospital in Gaurela.

Amit Jogi was arrested on September 3 following a complaint lodged by Sameera Paikra, the BJP candidate from Marwahi in the 2013 state Assembly polls. Jogi had won the election. On Tuesday Jogi was produced before a magistrate who sent him in judicial remand for 14 days, rejecting his bail plea. The bail plea was also turned down by a sessions court.

Jogi mentioned his birthplace as Sarbahara village in Bilaspur district, but when he had applied for Indian citizenship he had mentioned that he was born in the United States, according to the complaint.last_img read more

The Warriors Duped The NBA

Conventional NBA wisdom is based on a set of assumptions about how the game is played, and those, in turn, are based on what has worked best in the past. Don’t shoot 3-pointers off the dribble. Don’t throw 60-foot alley-oops. Don’t play JaVale McGee. Yet each time the Warriors add some new theatricality to their game, like the transition 3-pointer or the pull-up 3 or a propensity for 30-foot alley-oops to JaVale in traffic, they aren’t just stunting on the league; they’re exploiting its assumptions.There is a simple explanation for how that works: The Warriors have style. For all the systemic differences between the aspirant 2013-14 team led by Mark Jackson and the swashbuckling 2015 champions led by Steve Kerr, the most transformative was that Kerr’s Warriors have style and Jackson’s did not. And style endures. Even after bringing on Kevin Durant, the Warriors never acceded and played like a traditional powerhouse, grinding teams down with sheer force of talent. Instead, the team continued playing its chaotic brand of offense, with Stephen Curry just as likely to be setting off-ball screens to free up Ian Clark as he is to be working in a high pick-and-roll. The unanimous MVP just in your grasp, the undrafted journeyman springs free for a look. Setup and payoff. The coyote roller-skates off the cliff.The Warriors don’t merely seek out the best practices of the day — they create value where there’s not supposed to be any.The leading example of the Warriors turning audacity into efficiency is the team’s signature shot: the pull-up 3. When Curry began pulling up from the cheap seats a few short years ago, the reaction was first one of awe, and then one of appreciation: The shots were fearless, and few could make them as often as Curry, but they also worked because most defenses never dreamed that that was a shot anyone wanted. Only recently, as a wave of pull-up 3s has swept across the league, have we begun to appreciate how Curry’s trademark opens up the floor for the Warriors.But pull-ups are just one of several ways the Warriors have bucked orthodoxy to remake the league’s ideas about smart basketball. Seeking out free throws has been a hallmark of the modern analytic game for as long as Derrick Rose has been harangued for avoiding them. Yet the Warriors don’t shoot very many of them. They ranked just 20th in free throw rate during this regular season, and while they’ve drawn more fouls in the playoffs, their postseason rate was about average among the playoff field.Meanwhile, the team has moved away from the league’s most popular play, which powers hyper-modern offenses like the Rockets’ and the Raptors’: the pick-and-roll. Golden State was last in the league in percent of plays that finished in the hands of a pick-and-roll ball handler at about 11 percent,1 less than half the rate posted by league leaders Toronto and Charlotte, and last in the league in percent of plays used by a pick-and-roll roll man at 4 percent.2 The NBA is increasingly a pick-and-roll league, but the Warriors have gone in the opposite direction, even if they have their moments of doubt.“I definitely want to be in more pick-and-roll situations, whether I’m getting shots or whether we’re manufacturing ball movement,” Curry said a few days after the team’s Christmas Day loss to Cleveland. “That’s a strength of ours, regardless of how teams play us.”In some ways, eschewing the pick-and-roll is a luxury the Warriors enjoy because they have two MVP-level players in Curry and Kevin Durant on the roster. But passing up pick-and-roll opportunities also enables Golden State to be the best long-range 2-point shooting team in the league, thanks to that chaos-engine offense. The Warriors don’t take a ton of the shots — they ranked 20th in the regular season in attempting them3 — but ranked first in percentage, making 47 percent.It may seem natural that the best 3-point shooting team is also the best long-2 team, but the Warriors are also seeking these shots out. Math is supposed to warn against that.Golden State ranked in the top 10 of total spot-up 2-point attempts during the season, and the team was again far ahead of the pack in percentage on those shots, hitting more than 50 percent — 2 percentage points higher than the second-place team, and more than five points better than the San Antonio Spurs, who led in attempts. As a late-stage development in a possession, it’s almost cruel. Chase Curry and Durant and all the other Warriors shooters up and down the floor, around screens, and out far beyond the 3-point line — sell out to cover all the most valuable ground on the court as fast as you can — and a guy like David West might just pop out to 17 feet and kill you anyway. The painted tunnel only works for the roadrunner.That’s what the Warriors do: They don’t merely seek out the best practices of the day — they create value where there’s not supposed to be any. It’s their most endearing trait, the thing that makes them a thrill even as they threaten to dominate the league at a magnitude unseen since Bill Russell’s Celtics. Very often, their “inefficient” ideas are also the most fun. Thearon W. Henderson / Getty Images If the Warriors are light on Chuck Jones’s disciplines, they’re absolutely bankrupt when it comes to being disciplined. The one thing that’s plagued the team, in past seasons and in this one, has been turnovers. The Warriors have floated around the middle of the pack per possession, but they have a talent for slapstick turnovers at the worst possible times. Early on in his tenure, Kerr took to calling the team’s helter-skelter turnovers — the ones that flew into the second row, endangering the announcers’ table more than the opposing defense — “plays of insanity,” the implication being that Golden State could be even more dominant if it could snuff out these momentary lapses. When the Warriors dominated the Cavs in Game 1, players pointed to the team’s four turnovers as a sign that they took the series seriously. It’s not quite so simple, though.With the game on the line, we expect a team to resort to less obviously risky plays. Not Steph whipping no-looks on one play and JaVale McGee flying by with an ACME rocket strapped to his ass the next.Some Warriors turnovers are a function of carelessness. But others are more about the team’s identity since Kerr arrived, what the younger Jim Mora used to refer to as Michael Vick’s “athletic arrogance” — the belief that they are the best team in the world and capable of summoning any necessary magic to the court. Sometimes this backfires, as it did with Curry’s infamous behind-the-back turnover in the closing minutes of Game 7 last season.“Yeah, I still think about that,” Curry told ESPN’s Chris Haynes just before the Finals began. “In thinking about that game, it’s funny because I know the concept of making the right play, making a simple play, understanding that there are deciding moments in games and the difference between winning a championship or not could be one of those plays. I came out in preseason this year and threw a behind-the-back pass because I have confidence that I can do it and it won’t change that.”That confidence will lead to more turnovers. But it will also lead to some of the prettiest basketball the league’s ever seen, and you can trace the contagion from that Curry pass to Durant sauntering into a pull-up 3 to win Game 3.And it doesn’t just affect the stars: The Warriors ethos infused Andrew Bogut and Zaza Pachulia with the spirit of Vlade Divac and Brad Miller over the last three seasons, and even drew out latent passing skills from Marreese Speights and West. On the Warriors, veterans are empowered to throw surprising, stunting passes — passes that contribute to the team’s 2-point offense being so unguardable.4And that was the promise of this team! That when things tightened up, they were just as likely to throw the full-court alley-oop, or toss a behind-the-back bounce pass through traffic, or plant a shooter in front of Jeff Van Gundy and pull up from 40. It’s different from just about every other team we’ve seen. With the game on the line, we expect a team to resort to less obviously risky plays — brawny hero ball, or a calculating high screen and read that’s got more deltoid than fast twitch to it. Not this. Not Steph whipping no-looks on one play and JaVale McGee flying by with an ACME rocket strapped to his ass the next. Ben Margot / AP Chuck Jones, the classic Warner Bros. animator, used to say that we are all defined by our disciplines: When anything is possible, the things we don’t do are just as important as the things we do. Bugs Bunny does not act unless provoked; the roadrunner does not harm the coyote; the Houston Rockets do not shoot long 2s; and the New York Knicks do not catch the roadrunner. The Golden State Warriors do not have many disciplines to speak of. They’re basketball anarchists, unmoored from any concept of the “right” way to play as defined by crusty traditionalists or, importantly, the current generation of NBA nerds.For three seasons now, the Warriors have been the de facto champions of analytic basketball, the calculator boys whose success rests on mathematical principles. Other teams have gone to further extremes, but Golden State is unquestionably the flagship — as they’ll be the first to tell you. And in the afterglow of the team’s second title in three seasons, who’s to argue?But look a little closer and it’s apparent that the Warriors’ game doesn’t reflect the analytics it has come to represent. The Warriors aren’t math — they don’t represent order; they upend logic. They’re Bugs Bunny pulling himself out of the hat. The Warriors are the punchline. Marcio Jose Sanchez / AP The Warriors’ success raises questions about the new-school wisdom of the league. Is this a blueprint for future contenders or merely the imprint of a uniquely talented team? The answer might simply be that Golden State’s talent level is exceptional, that they can buck league trends because they aren’t like the rest of the league. And that’s partly true. They do this through individual excellence, yes, but that’s also the point: Golden State already had the talent the rest of the league craves, and now it’s using that talent in ways that other great teams haven’t. The fearlessness that Kerr allowed to flourish had taken root long before Durant came to town.So why not pull up from 40 feet, or throw 60-foot alley-oops, or play your small forward at center in the Finals just to see what happens? Why let the coyote get his defense set? It could be that there’s a steep minimum talent requirement to make playing like the Warriors effective, but there’s a steep talent requirement for anyone looking to win the NBA title.The Golden State Warriors are the team of the future — but that future may not be the one we thought it was.Read more: They Are Kevin Durant’s Warriors Now read more
