Not a villain but a champ: LeBron awaits Cleveland reunion

first_imgMOST READ FILE – In this Thursday, Dec. 2, 2010, file photo, a Cleveland Cavaliers fan yells at Miami Heat forward LeBron James (6) during the first quarter of an NBA basketball game in Cleveland. For the first time since leaving as a free agent and signing with the Los Angeles Lakers last summer, James returns Wednesday night, Nov. 21, 2018, to a city still grappling with losing him again. But unlike his previous return, the 32-year-old is coming home to be celebrated for what he did during his second stint with the Cavaliers. (AP Photo/Tony Dejak, File)CLEVELAND — The air was heavy, heaving with hatred.And when LeBron James skipped onto the Quicken Loans Arena floor on Dec. 2, 2010, with his Miami teammates, scorned Cleveland fans aimed their fury at one of their own, the kid from Akron who was shaken by the experience.ADVERTISEMENT But he’s keeping his perspective on this Thanksgiving week homecoming.“I don’t try to put too much into it,” he said Sunday night in Miami after scoring 51 in a win over the Heat. “I will see some familiar faces. I’ll think about some of the good. I’ll think about some of the bad. I’ll think about some of the great times that I had with the franchise, obviously. And then once the tip-ball gets going, it’ll be time to go to work.“It’ll be good to see some of my family that’s going to come to the game, see some of my friends as well, and get the thing going.”On that cold December night in 2010, James wasn’t sure what to expect months after his “taking my talents to South Beach” announcement had incensed Cleveland fans, driving some to burn his jersey.More frightening was the reception James received in his first game back.Security was beefed up to unprecedented levels, but nothing could shield James from the vicious words. There were chants of “Ak-ron hates you” and “Scott-ie Pipp-en” and fans held up signs calling him a traitor, liar, sellout and worse while a national TV audience watched an ugly divorce played out in real time.Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert had fueled the disdain in a letter written to Cleveland fans on the night James announced he was joining Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami.But while the negativity crashed down upon him, James, as is usually the case, soared. He performed his pregame chalk-toss ritual and then dropped 38 points on the Cavs in Miami’s 118-90 rout that galvanized the Heat and teased two future titles.James passed on a chance to apologize for his leaving afterward, and there seemed to be no chance for reconciliation with Cleveland or its fans.That, of course, changed four years later when he forgave Gilbert, came home and carried the Cavs to the title he had promised to deliver. Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil In 2010, he came back a villain. Now, he’s a champion — Cleveland’s own.James said he isn’t sure what kind of reaction he’ll receive, but he’s confident it won’t be anything like before.He’s changed. The city is different, thanks in part to him. His second stint with the Cavs may have ended earlier than anyone in Cleveland wanted, but anger has been replaced by appreciation.“I think whatever happens, happens,” he said. “But I will be in uniform, I will be there and I will be trying to get a victory. That’s what’s most important.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Japeth Aguilar embraces role, gets rewarded with Finals MVP plum Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines?

He touched Cleveland. He touched Akron. Us as individuals, we were all fortunate to get some time with him. I think hopefully he feels that. I think it’s going to be positive overall, and it should be.”Early in the game, the Cavs will show a video tribute of the franchise’s career leader in virtually every statistical category.The images will capture his stirring run in Cleveland — the buzzer-beating shots, the iconic chase-down block on Golden State’s Andre Iguodala in Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals, James’ teary reaction to winning an NBA title and the parade celebrating the city’s first sports championship in 52 years.There will also be reminders of his immense impact off the court, including the opening of his I Promise School in Akron, an elementary school for at-risk kids.ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

No pressure for Vihiga ahead of KPL debut

first_img0Shares0000Charles Okwemba celebrates with teammates after scoring one of the two Vihiga United goals in a GOtv Shield Quarter final clash against defending champions Tusker FC on August 20, 2017. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaNAIROBI, Kenya, Feb 2- After three straight seasons of ‘very near yet so far away’, Vihiga United finally achieved their dream of playing in the top flight having topped last season’s National Super League to earn automatic promotion.As they prepare to make a bow and take their place on Kenya’s golden football table, head coach Edward Manoah says the team is under no pressure to make an impression. And what a setting to start off their Kenyan Premier League (KPL) campaign when they line up at the Bukhungu Stadium in Kakamega on Sunday to host Mathare United in what will be the stadium’s first top flight league match in close to four years.“It is such a huge dream for us on Sunday to finally play our first league match. It has been a long time coming and finally the chance is here. We have prepared very well though the pre-season period has been short, but I feel we are ready for the KPL,” Manoah, himself with vast coaching experience said.Manoah understands his players might have the urge to make an impression at home, but says he has calmed their nerves telling them to take it a step at a time and ensure they play to the best of their ability.Vihiga United head coach Edward manoah during a past match. PHOTO/Raymond Makhaya“Our first game is at home and that can be very tricky. The fans will come out in their droves to support us and the players will definitely want to make an impression. Sometimes this might force them to have lots of nerves which are not necessary,” the coach said.“I have talked to them and instructed them to take it easy and play like a normal game. We are playing a tough team (Mathare United) and we can’t afford to have mistakes. We should not get over-excited as well,” the tactician further states.Vihiga have brought in relatively new faces in their January transfer business with the exception of Andrew Murunga who has a vast experience in the KPL ranging from Tusker FC, KCB the defunct Karuturi Sports and Ushuru.The club has also acquired the services of Ugandan defender Jonathan ‘Dante’ Mugabi who was released from Sofapaka.“I am quite pleased with the squad that we have and the new players brought in. We have a very good balance and I don’t have a doubt they will do the work for us,” added the coach.Vihiga United midfielder Charles Okwemba vies for the ball with Tusker FC’s Boniface Muchiri during a GOtv Shield quarter final clash at the Nyayo Stadium on August 20, 2017. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaManoah says his side’s primary priority as they start life in the top flight will be to retain that status and not necessarily pressure themselves into higher targets.“We have worked so hard to get here and it wouldn’t be justice to all the people who have put in work is we return to the NSL after one season. We want to be realistic with our targets; our aim is to remain in the league and that is what we are working on,” Manoah added.“I don’t want to put pressure on these young boys. The only thing I have asked of them is to give 100 percent in all the matches. We also hope to start well and pick as many wins as possible in the first leg to avoid fighting off to stay afloat late in the season,” the tactician further opined.The Western Kenya based side last season showed that they can handle KPL opposition, dumping out defending champions Tusker FC from the GOtv Shield with a 2-0 win in the quarter finals and narrowly losing 1-0 to eventual champions AFC Leopards in the semi finals.Vihiga United new signings:Michael Isabwa (Kariobangi Sharks), Andrew Murunga (On loan from Kakamega Homeboyz), Geofrey Oputi, Vincent Wonder (Palos FC), Ali Kesi (Kakamega Homeboyz), Fernandez Tera (FC Talanta), Jonathan Mugabi (Sofapaka), Victor Ayugi (KCB), William Oricho (Kibera Black Stars), Wycliffe Kabaji, Vincent Kagasi, Daudi Saisi (Unattached).0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Bruins on move with talented guard trio

first_imgLast year, Wilson High girls basketball coach Paula Clear received an unexpected assist from rival coach Carl Buggs of Poly when Tenaya Watson couldn’t convince him that she is just as talented and athletic as her travel ball teammates Jasmine Dixon, Brittany Brumfield and Jameia McDuffie, all of whom play for him. Watson, who had played for King-Drew her freshman year, found a home in the Bruins program. She sat the season out and got familiar with Clear’s system and players such as Leandra Sands (5-foot-6) and Amber Harden (5-3). AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGift Box shows no rust in San Antonio Stakes win at Santa Anita What makes Wilson so good is Watson, Sands and Harden’s chemistry on the court. They play to their strengths better than many teams with bigger frontlines and deeper benches, and the trio is the primary reason why the Bruins (12-6) are tied with the Jackrabbits at the top of the Moore League standings at 3-0. The undersized Bruins will try to knock off Poly, ranked No. 19 in USA Today’s national poll, at 5 p.m. today at home. The Jackrabbits are hurting with four key players out of the lineup. But Buggs still has All-American candidates in Dixon and Candice Nichols and a host of NCAA Division I hopefuls to fill in the voids. Today, they form one of the best guard trios in the Long Beach area. “He hadn’t seen me play,” Watson said about Buggs. “But it all worked out. I am happy here.” center_img Both teams love to play up-tempo, full-court pressure defense, and fastbreak ball. “We have to push the ball up the floor. We have to beat teams with our speed because we aren’t that big,” Sands said. “I think we are doing well. We don’t have a lot of one-on-one players. We know where we are going to be on the court.” Last Tuesday, the Bruins earned their biggest win of the season against Millikan. At the beginning of this season, many thought the Rams were the clear favorite to finish second in league behind Poly, and Wilson would be fortunate to beat out a greatly improved Lakewood team for third place. Clear had lost Sheila Ho-Ching and Neka Mixon to graduation and didn’t seem to have enough talent to contend for first or second place. However, her girls are accustomed to being ranked in the top four in the area, Clear said. So they decided to prove how good they are on the court. Well, last week, Wilson made doubters believers after defeating Lakewood, Millikan and Compton. “(The win against Millikan) was huge for us,” Clear said. “It gave us a lot of confidence. I could see more spring in their steps this morning.” Watson (5-foot-9) had 11 points and seven rebounds against Millikan’s Samantha Marez (6-foot-3), Kalena Tutt (6-3) and Trevonna Cannon (6-2), and her contributions, along with Sands’ 24 points and Harden’s 16, propelled the underdogs to victory. “They know winning games is usually on their shoulders,” Clear added. “They play with a lot of heart and the rest of the team follows. Amber and Tenaya are fiercely competitive, and Leandra has been on my varsity team for four years. She is quiet, but she knows it’s her year to step up.” The starting lineup also includes Angie Perez (5-foot-3), who is another outside threat. Freshman Jerronisha Green (6-0) is the hustler on the boards and plays good defense. Last Tuesday, to address her need to get more rebounds and defensive help off the bench, Clear brought up Delisha Brand from her JV team. “You can’t teach 6-2,” Clear said. “You are going to have an advantage when you are bigger.” Brand got a couple of blocks, grabbed some key rebounds and clogged the middle, preventing Marez, Tutt and Cannon from totally dominating the boards. This week, her challenge is to do it against a very aggressive, more physical and athletic Jackrabbit team that wants teams to run with them. “If you slow down, they are going to trap you even more,” Clear said. “If they are going to overplay and trap you, you might as well go to the basket. We can’t change our whole game plan or who we are. I just want to go in there, get a good effort, play some good basketball.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

VICTIM OF CROOK’S PONZI SCHEME GOES BUST

first_imgONE of Donegal’s best known companies has gone into receivership.Kilmac Form Work Ltd, based in Kilmacrennan, has been taken down by ACC Bank.Owner John O’Donnell was among a number of Co Donegal businessmen who lost money investing with well-known roly-poly French crook Francois de Dietrich. In February last year Mr O’Donnell was one of two businessmen who took a High Court case freezing de Dietrich’s ill-gotten gains. He lost €74k in the scam.Declan Taite and Paul Kennedy from RSM Farrell Grant Sparks have been appointed as receivers by ACC Bank. The decision was taken yesterday, donegaldaily.com has been told.A well-known construction company, Kilmac specialised in shuttering, concreting and steel fixing.A source close to the company said Mr O’Donnell is “devastated” by the move but admitted it had been struggling since the downturn in the construction industry. As bills piled up another company secured a court judgement against Kilmac Form Work for €75k last year.But it was the collapse of McNamara Construction which sounded the final deathknell of the business.John O’Donnell was exposed to losses of €200,000 as he was working on three McNamara projects when that company was put in receivership.Along with the new county library in Wexford, Kilmac Formwork was working on projects in Counties Galway and Dublin for McNamara Construction.“No one knew this was coming, it came out of the blue,” said Mr O’Donnell at the time. He said they were to be paid a total of €250,000 for their work on the Wexford project but lost out on a further €60,000 on that one site – a library.It is understood that Michael McNamara Construction owed more than € 20 million. A large proportion of that was owed to sub-contractors.Ironically one of the two receivers appointed to Kilmac Form Work – Declan Taite – was also appointed to McNamara when it went into receivership.© 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights Reserved The copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldailyFollow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailySell anything on www.donegaldailyclassifieds.comVICTIM OF CROOK’S PONZI SCHEME GOES BUST was last modified: January 14th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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

FRONTLINE DONEGAL WORKERS JOIN RALLY AGAINST CUTS

first_imgGARDAI, ambulance personnel and nurses from Co Donegal were among more than 4,000 frontline public service workers who warned the Government tonight they will not allow €1Bn of cuts to their pay.The 24-7 Frontline Alliance boasts garda sergeants and inspectors among its members. It has 70,000 members nationwide.The crowd in Tallaght in Dublin backed calls from speakers that they will oppose cuts to special payments for working weekends and night shifts. Seamus Murphy of the Psychiatric Nurses’ Association warned: “They need to be careful. Do you remember what happened to the last crowd that cut our pay?”He told the crowds that “in 1913 we had a lockout, in 2013 we have a sellout”.Garda Representative Association General Secretary PJ Stone warned the Taoiseach Enda Kenny that workers will not continue to deliver public services for the “miserable miserly wage you think you can negotiate in the Croke Park talks.”Gardai will stop doing all voluntary work from this Friday, will not use their own cars or own mobile phones while on duty. Some Donegal Gardai want a week-long Blue Flu which would see the Army brought out.The huge and noisy crowd in Dublin chanted “no more cuts” at the end of the rally.********Donegaldaily.com – Donegal’s No1 News & Sports Website – more than 30,000 Visitors Every DayFollow the leader on: https://twitter.com/DonegalDailyFRONTLINE DONEGAL WORKERS JOIN RALLY AGAINST CUTS was last modified: February 19th, 2013 by BrendaShare 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)Tags:FRONTLINE DONEGAL WORKERS JOIN RALLY AGAINST CUTSlast_img read more
