At his introductory news conference in Oklahoma City, Carmelo Anthony was asked about potentially coming off the bench for the Thunder, something he had never done in the NBA to that point. Anthony dismissed the question before the reporter could finish, saying “Who me?” The room filled with laughter, and Anthony moved on without a second thought.After the Thunder’s 2018 first-round exit, Anthony answered the same question, but no one laughed. “I’m not sacrificing no bench role,” he said. That offseason, he was traded by the Thunder, waived by the Hawks and signed by the Rockets. Anthony lasted just 10 games in Houston, unexpectedly ending his tenure with a 1-of-11 shooting night against his old Thunder teammates on Nov. 8, 2018.MORE: Why is Carmelo wearing 00 jersey instead of No. 7?One year and 11 days later, Anthony is preparing to return to the court as a member of the Trail Blazers. He will wear No. 00, per the team’s release announcing the signing, and it’s a fitting choice. With a respectable showing in Portland, each zero can help erase the previous two stops in his Hall of Fame career.To be clear, Anthony is not coming to save a 5-9 Blazers team, one that has lost seven of its last 10 games entering Tuesday night’s contest against the Pelicans. This can be viewed as a desperation deal. The Blazers are down Jusuf Nurkic and Zach Collins to injury in the frontcourt, so coach Terry Stotts has been forced to throw forwards like journeyman Anthony Tolliver and rookie Nassir Little into the starting lineup. It would be unreasonable to believe a 35-year-old who is well past his prime can suddenly change the playoff picture in a rugged Western Conference.But there’s reason for optimism: Desperation is one hell of a motivator. Unlike when he suddenly went into exile with the Rockets, Anthony knows this could be the final chapter of his legacy. He is signed to a one-year contract worth $2.15 million, only if he remains on the roster beyond his guarantee date in January, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania — similar to the deal Dwight Howard signed with the Lakers.”I just look at that opportunity, that team, and say, ‘Look, this is what I can bring to the team, this is where I can help,'” Anthony said in a video explaining his decision to join the Trail Blazers. “It will only work if all parties see it the same way. What happened before is the past. I can’t dwell on that. I learn from that.”This happened at a point in time in my life where I do have a lot of clarity and understanding of different situations and just life and my approach is totally different.”Anthony isn’t going to fix a bottom-10 defense. He won’t turn Hassan Whiteside into a dynamic pick-and-roll man, or Kent Bazemore into a sharpshooter. Portland’s problems go well beyond the mythical idea of “Olympic Melo.” At most, Anthony will be a true role player, a release valve for Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum as they draw plenty of attention on the offensive end. Here’s the thing: Simply doing that might be enough for Melo to eventually leave the game in a positive light. The “where I can help” attitude and willingness to take a step back would certainly be a better final image than one of a player incapable of recognizing his limitations or sacrificing for the team. (That label hasn’t always been fair to Anthony, by the way).Throw in the occasional jab step here and a pull-up jumper there — again, occasional — and Anthony can remind fans why he was such a captivating star with the Nuggets and Knicks. It might not be a full tour a la Dwyane Wade and Dirk Nowitzki, but the Trail Blazers gave Anthony an opportunity to rewrite his ending, and potentially leave on his own terms.He would be wise to make the most of it.
Jarryd Hayne’s scintillating recent form has secured his spot as the NSW fullback for next week’s State of Origin opener in Brisbane.Hayne has been outstanding for a rejuvenated Parramatta this season, scoring six tries in his last four games and Blues coach Laurie Daley is set to resist the temptation to name him in the centres when he names his side on Tuesday with Josh Dugan losing the No.1 shirt he wore in games two and three last year.”I think Jarryd’s shown everyone what he’s capable of doing he’s playing in really good form and fullback is his best position,” Daley told AAP.”At this stage, if everyone is right then I expect Jarryd to be fullback.”Dugan assumed the Blues No.1 jumper for games two and three last year after Hayne succumbed to a hamstring injury.Hayne’s recent performances have been up there with his displays in the second half of the 2009 season when he inspired the Eels to the grand final and claimed the Dally M Medal.The Blues are looking to win their first series in nine years and the build up to game one has been plagued with injuries and suspensions to key players.This has been in addition to the disruption created by the spat between Daley and high-profile media identity Ray Hadley.Daley said the furore caused by the relationship between his assistant coach Matt Parish and Hadley’s estranged wife has been put behind them, and the mood around the camp lifted by how well Hayne is playing,”It’s been a difficult week but one we have put behind us and we are moving forward,” he said,”Jarryd’s playing outstanding football which is great for us and gives all of us real confidence.”That’s been real good, we just need to make sure everyone else does their job.”Daley and his selectors will on Monday evening finalise their side for the May 28 series opener at Suncorp Stadium.Top of the agenda will be the decision on whether James Maloney and Mitchell Pearce will keep their spots as the halves pairing. – NRL.com
Atlético planned to pass the coronavirus tests after the Liverpool match, as part of an already established protocol. So it was advisable to carry out these tests due to the risk that there was in a contact job as the Atlético squad does in training. But their suspension altered those first plans. and Atlético met the medical and responsibility criteria of the health authorities and decided not to carry out these tests. No Atlético player has shown symptoms and being in home quarantine, as there was no training, it was ruled out to test for the coronavirus. The rojiblanco club, having no case, He also did not want to waste test kits, given the shortage of them. In the rojiblanco dressing room they also understood that it is an exercise in responsibility. All the players in the squad are in constant contact with the club’s medical services to find out their physical condition. The footballers have a training plan established these days and are scrupulously carrying it out from their homes, as they are showing on the networks. The best news at Atlético is that there is no news.
The leadership of the Yana-boys Association of Liberia has complained of constant harassments from officers of the Liberia National Police (LNP) and those from the Monrovia City Corporation (MCC). They also accused those working with the Paynesville City Corporation (PCC) of harassments.Yana-boys Association president, Prince Kollie, made the assertion to reporters yesterday at the Ministry of Labor in Monrovia.Mr. Kollie said the actions by the LNP, Monrovia City Police, and the PCC against marketers, petty traders and Yana-Boys has become “very visible in all facets.”“This situation is getting worse day after day because it is difficult to understand the extent such harassment has taken because there are too many police officers, either from the LNP or the city police that are constantly involved in arresting and taking away goods from our marketers,” Kollie claimed.He said goods seized by any of the officers are only partly – or sometimes never – returned to the owners.He said it appears as though the police have found this act of constant harassment the most effective means of getting items from the marketers without purchasing them.Mr. Kollie wondered as to what becomes of the goods or markets seized from “our members by these security officers? Are the goods reported to government? We need answers to these questions from the heads of these agencies because our members are tired being victimized by the LNP and the City Police.”He emphasized that many of the street sellers or marketers are indebted to the bank that loaned them the money they put into their businesses. “We call on the government to put in place measures that will lead to relocating street sellers, because we are tired of being harassed by the LNP and the City Police,” he stated. Mr. Kollie meanwhile cautioned the LNP, MCC and PCC to advise their officers to desist from constantly harassing marketers, who are out there finding means to sustain their families.Kenneth Harris, Director of City Police, when contacted, said goods confiscated are not returned because marketers are in the habit of selling in the streets and in the drive ways without regard to the rights of others.He then warned the marketers to desist from selling in the streets and other places and must rather return to selected market sites.For his part, Sam Collins, LNP spokesman said he could not comment because he was not knowledgeable of the information.Efforts through phone calls and three visits to the Paynesville City Cooperation (PCC) for their response to the Yana-boys’ allegations did not materialize.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
The new airport director also will have to pursue ambitious plans to re-route the Green Line to LAX, build an in-line baggage-screening system and sort out community-outreach projects hammered out as part of a fragile legal settlement with airport neighbors. “Los Angeles today is the destination of choice,” Collins said. “But there is growing competition, and we need to do more if we are going to remain competitive.” No stranger to plans Villaraigosa is well aware of LAX’s shortcomings. He has taken his time in selecting an executive director, searching for a visionary who can preserve and enhance the airport’s economic impact while expanding regional airports and reducing community conflict. “The mayor’s aviation agenda includes initiatives in three broad areas,” spokesman Matt Szabo said. “First, the mayor wants to increase safety for passengers, workers, visitors and the surrounding communities. Second, the mayor wants to regionalize aviation travel. “And third, the mayor wants to modernize Los Angeles International Airport. It … should reflect the uniqueness and diversity of the city of Los Angeles.” During the past 15 years, however, there has been no shortage of plans to develop LAX. Former Mayor Richard Riordan was the first to broach the issue, generating widespread community opposition with a plan to handle 100million passengers a year and triple the amount of cargo at the facility. Opposition continued under former Mayor James Hahn, who agreed to scale back the plans but was forced to shift focus to deal with security issues after the 2001 terrorist attacks. Villaraigosa brokered a deal over legal challenges to the plan, but LAX neighbors remain wary. “We are looking at the milestones promised by the city,” said Denny Schneider of the group Regional Solutions to Airport Congestion. “We are expecting good cooperation, but I’m not sure we’ve seen it yet. Things are not as smooth as one would like.” Among the stumbling blocks is whether to expand LAX’s north runways to accommodate mega-jets. “We have been working 14 years-plus on a so-called master plan, and (LAWA) tried to dictate to us and ignore us,” Schneider said. “The present mayor, at least, is working with us and looking forward, and that’s appreciated. But we are still very concerned about what will happen in the near future.” Options being considered include creating a special mid-field terminal with 40 extra gates for the jumbo jetliners. “The fact is (the jets) will have the ability to fly past us to other destinations,” said Councilwoman Janice Hahn, who heads the council’s Trade, Commerce and Tourism Committee and supports the proposal. “We have to recognize we won’t be the only game in town for the airlines and have to deal with them.” Relations need fixing Villaraigosa also has been working to improve the passenger experience at LAX. But for the Air Transport Association, which represents the airlines, the challenge is mending relations that have frayed for decades. “Going back 20 years or so, the relationship between the airlines and LAX was probably the best in the country,” said John Meenan, executive vice president of the group. “There was a great sense of mutual interest and cooperation. “We would hope, with the appointment of a new executive director, that we could return to that type of relationship.” In recent years, it has been left to the airlines and concessionaires to modernize their facilities. But little has been done because of rent and lease disputes. A number of airlines are contesting city efforts to increase rents, and last week United Airlines added a $10 surcharge on LAX passengers to pay for the higher rent. There also is an ongoing dispute about improving concession contracts at LAX. Most airport concessionaires now are operating on a month-to-month basis. “They aren’t going to want to make improvements until they know they are going to be there awhile,” Hahn said. “What’s a shame is that I don’t think we have gotten the revenue from our concessions that we could have. We are losing money when you compare us to other airports.” The lack of flair among LAX concessions also bothers some, who note airports in Las Vegas, Hong Kong, San Francisco and other cities have high-end or unique specialty shops. “The fact is, people spend more and more time within the airports because of security issues,” Kyser said. “There is money there we could capture.” While proposals have been floated to imbue LAX with more of the famed Hollywood mystique and bring in more local operations – from Home Boy Bakers to Dutton’s Book Stores – no real movement has occurred. Councilman Bill Rosendahl, who represents the airport area, said such developments would have only limited impact. “People are going to want to come to Los Angeles,” Rosendahl said. “The purpose of an airport is to get them in and on their planes and off their planes and out as smoothly as possible.” email@example.com 213-978-0390 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Nothing may be more symbolic of the challenges facing LAX than the half-ton chunk of plaster that fell recently from its iconic theme restaurant, revealing layers of rust damage caused by years of neglect. Most of the existing structures were built in the 1960s and have been modernized only once – when the Bradley International Terminal was erected for the 1984 Olympics. But city officials have spent $115million developing grandiose renovation plans that have gone nowhere. In recent months, however, Los Angeles International Airport has gotten a bit more attention: A $4billion upgrade was launched at the Bradley Terminal; a $333million replacement of the south runway was completed; and the city approved spending $1.8million to repair the landmark Encounter restaurant. And Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is preparing to name a new executive director for Los Angeles World Airports – an administrator to oversee the department’s $1.2billion budget, resolve lingering disputes about airline and concession leases, and determine how LAX will accommodate a new generation of mega-jets. Quickly defining the future of the nation’s second-largest international gateway in an increasingly competitive travel market is widely considered a crucial part of keeping both local and national economies healthy. “One of the problems with LAX is that it could be any airport in Anywhere, USA,” said Jack Kyser, chief economist of the Los Angeles Economic Development Corp. “It has so many problems that whoever is brought in is going to have a lot of sleepless nights.” LAX serves nearly 17million travelers annually, second only to John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City. It contributes more than $61billion a year to the local economy and generates more than 400,000 jobs. But some say LAX’s high profile could be jeopardized unless officials expedite plans to accommodate the 555-passenger Airbus380 and other mega- jets being eyed by the airlines. The city is studying plans to add more gates, but without quick action, airlines could make long-term commitments elsewhere, diverting both tourists and cargo to other destinations. “San Francisco spent $1.8billion and has 24 gates available now to accommodate the larger jets,” said Michael Collins of L.A. Inc., the group responsible for promoting and luring conventions to the city. “Los Angeles has 12. It is the market that is going to determine where these planes go. And if we don’t have the space, they will go elsewhere.”
Arsenal and Liverpool target Nabil Fekir is happy at Lyon and has no plans to leave the French club.The winger has been in stunning form this season, scoring 12 goals in 30 appearances and helping Lyon climb to the top of Ligue 1.The 21-year-old’s performances have attracted interest from a host of top sides, most notably Arsenal and Liverpool.But with Lyon on the cusp of European football and potentially a first league title since 2008, the Frenchman has revealed he’s happy where he is.“I want to stay at Lyon; this is a club where I feel good,” said Fekir.“I want to enjoy the Champions League here.” Lyon starlet Nabil Fekir 1
Emre Can finishes from close range to put Liverpool back on level terms Emre Can scored the equalising goal to put Liverpool level against Rubin Kazan in the Europa League. The German midfielder could have had another and his all-round performance showed football fans alike why the Reds paid Bayer Leverkusen a reported £10million for his services. Former boss Brendan Rodgers played Can, 21, in various positions last season including on the right side of a three-man defence. But new manager Jurgen Klopp played him in midfield against the Russian side and he certainly impressed. Starting with former Red Djimi Traore, here is what some Liverpool fans had to say… 1

The corncrake is alive and well on Tory Island.The extremely rare and secretive bird has long made its summer home on the Donegal island.Birdwatch Ireland has now confirmed that “at least” five calling males have been documented on the island. At least three of these birds are located within the Birdwatch Ireland management area on the island (an increase for this area on last year).However, Niall Hatch of Birdwatch Ireland says it is too early to get an idea of breeding birds on the island as it does not take place until the beginning of June at least.Because the birds fly in from Africa to spend the summer in Ireland other parts of Europe, some corncrakes may not have even arrive in Donegal yet.
