They have faced an amusing series of drawings and lost in a scrimmage to a Jeff Van Gundy-coached mishmash of fringe NBA players.There is one crucial difference between now and 1992, Some of the league’s best players now aren’t from the United States, so we have no Antetokounmpo, Nikola Jokic, or Joel Embiid to choose from, among other players.I’m still confident this team would beat the ‘92 team handly because that’s the way things go.I’m carrying three-point guards because I couldn’t bring myself to leave any of these guys off.He may want to avoid putting too much strain on his torn ACL after a possible late-season return to the Warriors, and he already has a gold medal in his trophy case.If I had to replace one of these two, Bradley Beal, Victor Oladipo, Devin Booker, Middleton, CJ McCollum, and Mitchell would be in the conversation.Get your Olympic Basketball Tickets Online from our one of the best online ticketing market places.visit: https://www.olympictickets2020.com/olympic-games-tickets/olympic-basketball-tickets/

Directed by longtime collaborator Ibra Ake, the film embodies Glover's typical patchwork: It's wonky, narratively indeterminate, and crammed with wit and the occasional inside joke.Glover's work lives outside the mainstream, as critique.This, coupled with Beyoncé's just-announced partnership—which includes a collaboration on a signature Adidas collection in addition to expanding her athleisure line, Ivy Park—suggests Adidas is jockeying for a larger cultural footprint.Puma's famously worked with Rihanna and Solange.Converse has tapped Millie Bobby Brown and Vince Staples for campaigns.Adidas has since partnered with basketball star James Harden, soccer phenom Lionel Messi, Grammy-winning producer Pharrell Williams, rapper Pusha-T, and fashion maven Stella McCartney.

Let’s be real: you are most certainly never going to be as good as Steve Nash, Chris Paul, James Harden — or really any professional NBA player.And while there are going to be plenty of attempts to smash image recognition and AI into that problem, a company called NEX Team is hoping to soften the blow a bit by helping casual players figure out their game, rather than trying to be as good as a professional NBA player.Using phone cameras and image recognition on the back end, its primary app HomeCourt will measure a variety of variables like shot trajectory, jump height, and body position, and help understand how to improve a player’s shooting form.The company said it’s raised $4 million from Charmides Capital and Mandra Capital, as well as Steve Nash, Jeremy Lin, Sam “Trust The Process” Hinkie (sigh), Mark Cuban and Dani Reiss.“We don’t call ourselves a basketball company, we think of ourselves as a mobile AI company,” CEO and co-founder David Lee said.Players can boot up their camera and begin recording their shots, and the app will go back and track what worked and what didn’t work with that shot, as well as where the player is making and missing those shots.It’s not tracking every single motion of the player, but once a player makes a shot, it will track that trajectory and shooting form, like where his or her feet are planted.

If you've been on Twitter today, you've probably seen this tweet.Maybe a few dozen times.Maybe every single time you've used the app today:But no, Twitter tells CNET, you're witnessing the results of an unprecedented ad spend by Beats (or its owner Apple) to ensure the entire world see basketball stars LeBron James, Kevin Durant and James Harden plug their audio products.Beats bought an ad product called "First View," which lets an advertiser get exposure at the top of your Twitter timeline.But Twitter says the ad wasn't supposed to appear as many times as it did.

With Sledgehammer developing 2017’s Call of Duty: WWII and Infinity Ward handling 2016’s Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, this year’s title will be created by Black Ops studio Treyarch.To the surprise of almost no one, it appears that this year’s game will be Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII — and yes, that is how Activision chose to write the name.According to both Eurogamer and Kotaku, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 (we refuse to type that again) will take place in the near future, just like the previous two entries in the series.Prior to that, the original Black Ops took place in the 1960s, and the earlier games bear little resemblance to the newer titles.The “fourth” Black Ops title would actually be the fifth game in Treyarch’s series, which began with 2008’s Call of Duty: World at War.That game and the first Black Ops featured the character Viktor Reznov, played by 2018 Oscar-winning actor Gary Oldman.
Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr has blamed his iPhone X after he accidently tweeted criticism of the referees.Houston Rockets guard James Harden was leading his team to a win over the San Antonio Spurs when the official NBA Twitter account tweeted that he was "putting on a show".Kerr, who has led the Warriors to two championships in the past three seasons, was not as impressed."It's an embarrassment," he said in his tweet."I think the league is so happy with all the scoring that it doesn't want to enforce stuff like that."Kerr was angry that Harden has supposedly got away with a travel.
Let he who is without sending a public tweet instead of a direct message cast the first stone.The latest to fall foul of this common twittering failing is Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr.On Thursday, he was watching footage of the Houston Rockets' James Harden posted by the NBA and tweeted these thoughts: "It's an embarrassment.I think the league is so happy with all the scoring that it doesn't want to enforce stuff like that."The "stuff like that" he was referring to was the constant traveling violations committed by certain NBA stars that aren't called.It was still seconds too late as people like James Margariti grabbed a screenshot as a memento.
Like a good neighbor, Chris Paul is there … in Houston!This State Farm ad finds the NBA superstar exploring his new city, where he runs into a pair of his big-time baller friends.Naturally, they wind up driving around and singing along to the Backstreet Boys.That shift formed the basis of “Going Away Party,” the nine-time All Star’s previous commercial for the insurer that dropped last last month.It featured Paul yukking it up with State Farm agent Cole Perez, played by Oscar Nunez from The Office.Now there’s a sequel, which breaks widely on Christmas Day, and opens with the agent taking Paul on a “Grand Tour” that includes bowling, barbecue and “I Want It That Way” blasting on the car radio.
