Will longer break put the fun back in All-Star weekend?


In releasing the schedule for the 2014-15 season, the NBA followed through on Adam Silver’s promise to consider a longer All-Star break in response to a request from LeBron James and other stars.

Considering that the season now runs from the opening of training camps in October, straight through the Finals in late June — and for many players well into the summer with Summer League and international obligations — it’s a welcome change. Weary stars whose All-Star weekend schedules are packed with league, personal and promotional obligations will now get some actual recovery time before the grind resumes. In theory, more rested players (and coaches) will result in a better post-All-Star product.

Each team will have a minimum of seven days between games with the new format, with the majority of the league not resuming play until the Friday after the 2015 All-Star Game at Madison Square Garden on Sunday, Feb. 15. The trt his side battling for a 2-2 draw against Wolves.Albion had to come from behind early in the game, but they were soon 2-1 ahead after two quick goals from Neal Maupay and Davy Propper.But Wolves pegged them back as Diogo Jota got his second of the nade dchester United striker struggled with his confidence during Jose Mourinho’s time in charge.The Frenchman wasn’t happy working with the Portuguese coach, and he was suffering on a daily basis at Old Trafford.”During our first two years together in Maneadline will be Feb. 19, so it won’t be much of a break for team executives (or, selfishly, for media) working feverishly on trades. But at least players won’t face the distraction of suiting up for teams that are about to trade them.

How did the NBA accommodate the change? The season doesn’t begin any sooner or end any laects a tough test against Champions League opponents Inter Milan on Tuesday night.Barca have already qualified in first place from their group.Lautaro Martinez and Romelu Lukaku have become a fearsome pairing for Inter this season and Valverde discuster than usual, so there can only be one answer: more back-to-backs. According to schedule data obtained by, each team will play an average of 0.6 more back-to-backs next season than in 2013-14.

In the past four 82-game seasons (excluding lockout-shortened 2011-12), the league has gradually reduced the number of back-to-backs — from an average of 20.1 per team in 2009-10 to 18.7 last season. In 2014-15, teams will play an average of 19.3 back-to-backs — a figure that is comparable to the 19.2 average in ’12-’13 but still less than the two full seasons before that.

Could such a slight increase in back-to-backs raise injury risk? Limiting wear-and-tear and overuse injuries was one of the key goals in reducing the number of back-to-backs over the past few seasons. But it’s difficult to argue that less than one additional back-to-back on average per team would have any significant impact on injuries — as long as the back-to-backs are evenly distributed.

Silver is open to other scheduling changes as he enters his first full season as commissioner, and this one is by no means written in stone going forward. But from the standpoint of letting the league put on a better All-Star weekend show, with the focus on the game instead of the trade deadline, this should be a positive change.

From Amar’e Stoudemire to Chris Paul, from Carmelo Anthony to Dwight Howard, recent All-Star weekends have morphed into a glorified trade deadline preview. With the deadline coming so quickly after All-Star weekend and with play generally resuming 48 hours after the All-Star Game, a weekend that is supposed to be a showcase of the game’s best has consistently been overshadowed by the transaction culture that has gripped the league and its media coverage.

The seven-day break will give everyone some much needed breathing room. Who knows? It might actually make All-Star weekend enjoyable for a change.

One thing it probably won’t do, however, is compel the game’s biggest stars to resume participation in the dunk and 3-point contests on All-Star Saturday night. The short break and packed All-Star schedules have been among the key reasons that superstars have for years avoided what used to be a highlight of the weekend. But there is no indication that any discussions have taken place about using the longer break to entice the likes of James, Paul George (when healthy), Russell Westbrook and others to join the Saturday night festivities and restore their long-lost luster.

Of course, adding two additional days without games after the All-Star Game will only put more focus on trade deadline moves at that time. But in theory, the focus will be shifted away from the league’s showcase event.

One step at a time.


ednesday’s loss to the Hornets in Charlotte, accor


The NBA fined guard $15,000 for making an “obsence gesture” during Wednesday’s loss to the Hornets in Charlotte, according to multiple reports.

Wade’s gesture came after the third quarter and came after he was wi Anthony Weston.The Blackpool star was involved for the Seasiders for the first time against Maidstone in December.He was set to join Southampton, but the move fell through.Now The Sun suggests that a move to Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton is much more lith the performance of his offense, the Miami Herald reports.

But neither player can be thrown into the Eric Cantona class – as they have this past week.Neil Warnock, the former Cardiff City manager, prefaced his claims by admitting he didn’t want theentlessly about his age, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

After the incident, the Heat went on to outscore the Hornets 21-13 in the final quarter, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the team’s deficit, with the game ending in a 78-76 win for the Hornets. Wade shared the team scoring lead with 17 points on 8 of 21 shooting.

2014 Outlook: Roy Hibbert


The tallest received a lot of hype heading into last season for the way he held his own against the then-champion Miami Heat in the playoffs. But another 82-game sample size has shown perhaps that success was more of a beneficial mismatch than ‘s breakout moment. Based on his draft position, Hibbert was last season’s least valuable player for Fantasy. He finished third ays he does not see Maurizio Sarri leaving Chelsea.Reports in Italy claim Sarri has been picked as a target for Juventus to replace Max Allegri.But Italy international Jorginho believes Sarri is “relaxed” and will not want to leave Stamford Bridge thin blocks per game, but every other statistical category was a huge disappointment. Robin Lopez outscored him. Samuel Dalembert out-rebounded him. His 44 percent from the field was the second-wtances that led him to leave Liverpool, and his relationship with Jurgen Klopp.The left back was signed in 2014, but failed to show the necessary quality or consistency to establish himself as a mainstay in the position.He was not able to show Klopp orst in the league among starting centers. His free throws were OK, but 77 percent from the line and 2.3 s the Rossonero need to raise cash to balance their budget.The two players primed to leave are Suso or Gigio Donnarumma, though interest is for the moment thin on the ground.Instead, Lucas Paqueta – wanted by PSG – and skipper Alessio Romagnoli are mblocks per game doesn’t justify getting drafted on average before Dirk Nowitzki. This offseason he worked with Kareem Abdul-Jabaar, but unless Hibbert mastered the skyhook and completely rehabbed his psyche, consider him a late-round pick in points leagues and a mid-round gamble in Rotisserie formats.
