Bolton’s sister was offered a basketball scholarship to Auburn University – but the school didn’t want her. “I felt this rejection and disappointment and sadness, and I felt like my dreams were over,” she said. That is until her father gave her one piece of advice that Bolton would carry with her for life. “He said, ‘If a door closes, get through a window,’ ” she said. Bolton got on a 10-hour bus ride to Auburn University and eventually made the basketball team, even starting as a freshman. “And the rest is history,” she said. Bolton went on to play in the WNBA and win two gold medals with the U.S. Women’s Basketball Team. But while she was fearless on the...

    Updated 08/03/2021 – 09:48 The news of the Gasol brothers’ goodbye almost overshadowed the elimination at the hands of the United States in the quarterfinals of the Games. Pau and Marc get off the attraction with 405 matches and 20 international medals between them. A palmars difficult to match, but that for Jorge Garbajosa, president of the Spanish Basketball Federation, does not give the true stature of both players: “I take pride in them. They are two very special people. They say that how you are abroad is reflected in the field. I believe that and I believe that the field has not been entirely fair and look how great they have been. Outside they are examples of life. Of a coherence and loyalty to the values ​​they represent, that I continue to learn from them. Every day they give you a little lesson. “ Garbajosa had difficulties to contain the emotion when evaluating Pau’s career with whom she also shared a wardrobe: “We have to thank them.

    Five rings and the prestige as one of the best coaches in NBA history does not seem enough argument to save Gregg Popovich from the burning to which he has been subjected since he assumed command of the United States national team in 2019. replacing Mike Kryzewski. The veteran Indiana coach does not quite find the key when it comes to adapting to FIBA ​​basketball and after signing a balance of five games won and two defeats in the World Cup in China, in which he lost in the quarterfinals against France, now has added a new setback that leaves him with a 62.5% of victories. A lower percentage than the one that accumulates after 22 seasons in the NBA: 66.7%. It is precisely this background of the NBA that seems to condemn Popovich in an American team that does not finish assimilating his concepts as they demonstrated in the defeat against the ‘bleus’ on the opening day of the Games. The American coach intends to copy the style of play of the San Antonio Spurs in the national team...
    Anti-vaccine documentary, Covid and the Vaccine: Truth Lies, and Misconceptions Revealed features NBA Hall-of-Famer John Stockton. According to the documentary’s website, the film attempts to answer the questions of “do masks really work,” “what is the real risk of dying from Covid,” and “how will we really know that a Covid vaccine is safe?” The filmmakers decided to use a basketball player’s opinion as one of their prominent voices to debunk science. A list of other experts who weigh in on the documentary are also provided on its website. “This isn’t a virus cheating us of this opportunity,” Stockton says in the trailer. “It’s the guys making decisions saying, ‘No, no we’re too scared. We’re going to shut everything down. Sit in your house and be careful.’ My kids and my grandkids hearing these things and accepting them as truth when I know by my significant amount of research that it isn’t, it’s very frustrating.” John Stockton in the Anti Vax Documentary: pic.twitter.com/xwclC7eZIv — Alex. ????????????????????????????

    Getty Kyrie Irving reacts to a call against the Miami Heat Kyrie Irving has been the subject of much criticism for much: buring sage before games, missing several games earlier this month and a host of other things. But his talent is undeniable on the basketball court. The Brooklyn Nets point guard is currently averaging 29.3 points, 4.6 rebounds, 5.8 assists and 1.2 steals for a 10-8 Brooklyn Nets team that currently sits in fifth place in the NBA’s Eastern Conference standings. Are the criticisms warranted? “They give Kyrie Irving a hard time because he’s so fucking talented man,” Cuffs The Legend told me on the Scoop B Radio Podcast. “It’s like the Chris Brown thing. You know how talented Chris Brown is and you remember when he went through his crackhead phase right before our eyes? It’s like, Damn man. Stop doing drugs and make the music and give the people what they want! Show us your talent! And with Kyrie Irving, I think just we as fans want to see his talent. Stop all the bull...
    The Undertaker was possibly the most mysterious wrestler in the sport’s storied history. It takes a strangely exorbitant amount of passion to convince fans that Taker really was an undead wrestler. His legacy is so legendary that WWE should ideally change the WWE Hall of Fame to ‘People Who Aren’t Better Than The Deadman.’ For such an enigmatic individual, there are still some facts about Undertaker that will shock you. Undertaker started a foundation to save dogs Just when you thought you could not love the Undertaker more, he goes ahead and does something like this. Along with his now ex-wife, Taker began The Zeus Compton Calaway Save the Animals Fund. The fund is based in the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. Taker started the foundation in 2004 after his bull mastiff Zeus passed away. The website declares that “no pet owner should have to put their beloved animal to sleep because they are unable to pay medical bills.” Its primary purpose is to help pay for lifesaving treatments for large-breed dogs. This is an extremely...

    USPS removes thousands of mailboxes each year. In 2020, mail-in ballots make it political. 30 foods you should try to avoid and why The legend of Georgetown’s John Thompson begins with unflinching toughness During the late 1980s, Rayful Edmond operated a violent and highly profitable drug trafficking operation in Washington D.C. He was considered equal parts brilliant, charismatic and ruthless. Maybe that’s not the most obvious way to start a tribute to Georgetown basketball coach John Thompson, who died at the age of 78 on Monday.  Or maybe there is no better example of the power Thompson wielded and the respect he commanded not just inside college basketball, but across society itself. Edmond never played alongside Thompson when he was a part of two NBA championship teams in Boston in the 1960s. He didn’t play for Thompson as he won 596 college games and became the first African American coach to win a national title in 1984. He wasn’t one of his Hall of Fame talents such as Patrick Ewing or Allen Iverson.  Edmond was a drug dealer. A...

    Call it a divine crossover into the sneaker game. More than 20 years after Harlem hoops legend and former Providence College star God Shammgod wowed the world with his namesake ankle-breaking crossover — where a player changes direction by dropping the basketball with one hand and pulling it back with the other— in the 1997 NCAA tournament, he’s getting his own namesake Puma shoe. Unlike most athletes, who achieve sole stardom while in the prime of their careers, Shammgod’s kicks are being released during his second act in basketball. “When I was a kid, having your own sneaker was a fantasy,” Shammgod, 44, and now an assistant coach with the Dallas Mavericks, tells The Post. “That’s why it’s so amazing that it’s happening now.” The Legacy Shammgod, which was designed with extra ankle support, drops Thursday. “Puma did an amazing job on the shoe,” says Shammgod, who was introduced to the brand by his old New York friend Jay-Z, now the creative director of Puma’s basketball division. “It was built to make you feel secure when you break short and...

The 56-year-old New York City native played for the Golden State Warriors for most of his career and later served as head coach at St. John’s, his alma mater.
