It’s going to be amazing, Stephenson said. Especially playing with the talent I’m playing with, the high tempo, just playing without thinking too much and playing in the flow of the game and having fun at the same time, a team that run and guns, that’s basically how I love to play.
The chance to play for one of America’s most storied franchises is a new challenge for James, who prides himself on knowing the game’s history. In Los Angeles, championships are the standard and he’ll feel new pressure in upholding the legacies of Johnson, Bryant, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Jerry West and other Lakers greats.
The No. 1 pick got the better of No. 2 pick Marvin Bagley http://authenticsenatorsshop.com/bobby-ryan-jersey_c-423.html III (who suffered a hip injury) in their head-to-head matchup. The 7-1 Ayton did all of his work in the paint, scoring 21 points (on 8-for-11 shooting) and grabbing 12 rebounds as the Suns improved to 2-0 with a win over the Kings in front of a big crowd at the Thomas & Mack Center.
The No. 17 pick of the 2016 Draft was waived after just one season with the Logan Couture Authentic Jersey Grizzlies, but he’s getting a second chance with the Blazers, who will have make a decision on http://www.officialssanjosesharkshop.com/Adidas-Logan-Couture-Jersey his non-guaranteed contract in a couple of weeks.

It would have been a better afternoon if he made more than one of his five free throw attempts.
I feel like I’ve had a pretty good season … very efficient for minutes and opportunities that I’ve been given. Obviously I would like to produce more and have the chance to get on the floor a little bit more so I can be the player that I am, that I have been throughout my career and that I still can be.
What moves should the Spurs make this offseason?
Of course, the Spurs are under no obligation to grant Leonard’s desire to be traded to a preferred team, as TNT analyst David Aldridge points out via Twitter:
1) If the Spurs grant Kawhi Leonard’s request, they’re under no obligation to trade him to a preferred team. 2) Their only obligation would be to make the best deal 4 themselves. 3) And it would clearly make more sense for them to trade him east than keep him in the west.
Additionally, league sources told Yahoo Sports’ Shams Charania that Leonard has become uncomfortable with any future with the Spurs and is looking to move on immediately. The tension surrounding the situation between Leonard and the Spurs intensified when, after opting to not be with the Womens Bobby Ryan Jersey team for rehab reasons, Leonard was spotted three weeks later attending a Dodgers game in Los Angeles.
