San Antonio Spurs, Becky Hammon win the Las Vegas Summer League


Well, that is one heck of an opening act for first-time head coach Becky Hammon.

The first female coach to ever be in charge of a Summt striker Luka Jovic.Jovic is expected to leave in the coming mon positives” from Monday’s 3-2 loss to Liverpool.The result means West Ham are still in the relegation zone with 11 games remaining.But the spirited display, which saw them lead 2-1 in the second-half, encouraged their manager.Moyes said: “There were ths following their failure to qualify for the Champions League.The 21-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid, but there has also been speculation linking him with er League team, Hammon and her diola expects Leroy Sane to stay at Manchester City next season.The German has been targeted by Bayern Munich this summer.Asked if he expected Sane to stay at the Etihad Stadium, the Spaniard said: “Yes.”The club made him an offer last year. As I sai won the Las Vegas Summer League championship over the 93-90.

The team won behind terrific performances from Jonathon Simmons and Treveon Graham, who put in 23 and 22 respectively. Las Vegas Summer League MVP also added 15 of his own.

“It’s just a credit to (the players),” Hammon said after the game. “They found a little bit of a groove with each other and they got it done on the defensive end. Our last two or three games came down to getting defensive stops, so that’s the thing I’m most proud of.” 

Players are the ones most responsible for winning championships, and tonight’s performance was no different. Without the stellar shooting of those three players and the defensive contributions of everyone, the Spurs wouldn’t have won this game. However, there’s something to be said for the way this team won its Summer title tonight, and that has to do with the way it was coached.

Typically, summer league championships often aren’t really indicative of anything and don’t mean much in the grand scheme of things. But this team just felt different than most teams you see in Vegas. Simply put, this San Antonio team has looked and felt like the Spurs’ big team. They were running the same plays, using the same actions offensively, and executing them with devastating efficiency. For instance, it wasn’t uncommon to see something like the play that has become commonplace with the big Spurs team, and more often than not it was successful.

That’s a credit to Hammon and this staff (including Will Hardy, whom Hammon went out of her way to praise post-game), regardless of her gender and her role as something of a pioneer in this event. It’s hard to get a group of players who have only been together for a short period of time to run plays. Just look at the team they faced in the championship game. The Suns were a free-wheeling team based around the kinetic energy of point guard Mike James and the chucking tendencies of . 

“Down in San Antonio we just try to do things the right way,” Hammon said. “We value character. They got me a good group of character guys in there. Even the guys that weren’t playing as much, they stayed involved.”

But rightly or wrongly — and largely due to the fact that Summer League winners and losers aren’t regarded with nearly the same importance as their regular season counterparts — the story here is that a female coach won a championship in her first opportunity. For her part, she had no idea what kind of deal this would be and tried to downplay the gender-based importance of her accomplishment.

“I honestly didn’t know this would be a big deal until my phone started blowing up,” Hammon said. “I’m just thankful for my opportunities and I’ll just keep doing my best and that’s all I have control over.”

Even with a championship in her hands, it looks like the best is yet to come for Hammon, and that’s great news for the league as a whole. The more sucess she has, the more that events like this will become less newsworthy and more commonplace. There’s no reason that a woman can’t coach men, and hopefully Hammon’s success inspires more women to attempt to get jobs in the and more organizations to give them chances. Hopefully, Gregg Popovich’s faith in her will become the norm.

Speaking of Pop, Hammon has a sneaking suspicion what his advice will be to her after this win.

“He’ll tell me to go get a nice glass of wine somewhere,” Hammon laughed. 

That’s something she certainly deserves after this week.


Kevin Love’s return to Cleveland Cavaliers not a simple affair


re-signed with the this week. The move was either completely predictable based on everything that Love had said publicly for months, or a total surprise based on media reports of the possibility he could depart, thanks to the inherent instability of his relationship with and his terribly misused role inside David Blatt’s offense. 

The aftermath has led to some interesting insights into the process. The biggest takeaway is that any assertion that everything was hunky-dory between Love and the Cavaliers is false. There were issues, a clear tension between Love and his team on his role and how last year went down. The question is whether those were enough to get him to seriously consider leaving. 

Let’s start here. Here’s GM David Griffin when meeting with reporters on Saturday in Las Vegas, via Ohio.com. I’ve provided emphasis on a few lines to pay attention to:

On Love’s quick extension agreement: Nothing that was being written about him having eyes for someplace else was ever in conjunction with what he was saying to us. Everything he did was exactly what he was saying all along.”On using Love differently to take better advantage of his vast skillset: “I think he and Coach have had a lot of conversations about that. He and Bron have had conversations about that. Kevin enables us to have somebody else carry the mail when LeBron sits down once in a while. Kywinger skipped Barca training today with talks now at an advanced stage over his sale to Zenit.Mundo Deportivo says Malcom was missing from this morning’s session.The attacker is set to join Zenit for an initial fee of €40m plus bonuses due based orie was in a situation where he was clearly the one who was taking over when LeBron was out and I think we have the ability to put him at the elbow and run offense through him a lot more than we did – some of the things he did really well in Minnesota.”On Love’s relationship with the organization: “Our meeting postseason with the exit interview with him was fantastic. From that standpoint I’m grateful he felt that way about the organization. Obviously the (poolside) meeting he had with LeBron was critical. Their relationship has really improved. Nobody would’ve ever said they had a bad relationship, but it can never be good enough either. I think that was a real promising thing for us.”

Source: . 

Here’s where we start to see a little bit of the context. The idea from media reports about Love possibly leaving were based around him being unhappy with how he fit with the team. There was the infamous dust-up with LeBron James   Love was mainly used as a decoy throughout the season until late in the year when they finally started using him in the post more. 

His defense fell back a bit from his 2014 performance — which wasn’t great to begin with — and that meant Love didn’t play in several fourth quarters. It’s not like the idea that Love would leave was preposterous. But perhaps the confusion came between him having issues with his team and genuinely looking to leave. 

Love recorded a video for the Players’ Tribune explaining his decision, and his comments were equally intlayers would be happy if Paul Pogba stayed.The midfielder is a target for Juventus and Real Madrid. But Mata says, “We all know Paul, he is a fantastic midfielder and a very good boy. “He’s very positive and brings a nice atmosphere in the locker rooeresting. 

“I had spoken with [coach] David Blatt and general manager David Griffin and it was for lack of a better term, a heart-to-heart,” Love said. “I just spilled out how I felt, how I could help, what I could do better and so forth.

“I mentioned in the meeting I was going to reach out to LeBron, and I did. He happened to be in Los Angeles the same time I was. And we just talked everything out. A lot of stuff was very honest. We came to a very good place and agreed on a lot of things … Every time I went through the different scenarios, I came to the same place and that was to be in Cleveland and win championships.

“I’m not going to say it didn’t weigh heavily on me, because it did,” Love admitted.

That does not sound like it was this super-easy process that was assured from the beginning. Love made the call that he wanted to return, and deserves credit for that, as do the Cavaliers for being able to keep him.  Reading between the lines, it sure seems like there was genuine discord between Love and the team, but that he still wanted to commit to it. It’s easy to say that this was a simple decision for Love. The Cavaliers offered him the most money on the most years with a chance to contend for a title next to the best player in the league. Why would he not take that?

But we’ve seen superstars take less money to further their own ambitious goals about stardom. Every athlete says they just want to win, but what they most often mean is that they want to win on their terms in the way that makes them feel the best used. Love put his faith not only in a team that didn’t really deliver for him last year after trading a No. 1 pick for him, but also in a player he clashed with during the year and who never embraced him as “La Familia.” That all seems to be turning, though. 

If Love can get healthy, if the Cavaliers can figure out how to better use him and if LeBron can form a bond with Love, there’s every reason to think this will be the beautiful relationship the two sides had envisioned last summer. Just don’t think therged this week that Messi’s contract carries a break clause for the end of every campaign where the Argentine can leave for free.And contacted by El Chiringuito, a family member has confirmed his deal expires at the end of this season.While it’s beenre was never any drama to this situation; it’s pretty clear that wasn’t the case.
