Trust the progress: Joel Embiid Jersey is even better than you thought

After two years of restrictions and injuries, including one very recent broken orbital bone and concussion, Philadelphia’s Joel Embiid is, shall we say, eager for his first playoff game. Need evidence? Check out his salty Instagram from April 16 — or consult these ridiculous numbers as he preps to return to a team that ran off eight straight wins without him to end the regular season.

Harden torched the Timberwolves for 44 points on 15-of-26 shooting, including 7-of-12 from 3-point range. The rest of the Rockets made only 3 of 25 3-point attempts — a rare 12 percent brickfest for a team that broke its own year-old record for 3s made in a season — but Elvis Dumervil Womens Jersey Harden was simply too good to let eighth-seeded Minnesota start the series by sneaking out an upset.

Another day for James, Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni said of the NBA’s season scoring leader. He’s done it all year. He really stepped up. We were struggling to make shots, struggling to really have any kind of rhythm of play, and James put us on his back. He’s been doing it for a while now.

Time after time, The Beard hit big shots when momentum seemed to be swaying to Minnesota’s side. Soon after the Timberwolves took a lead midway through the fourth quarter, Harden re-entered the game and immediately went on a do-it-himself 7-0 run, hitting a floater off the glass, driving for a layup and drilling a pull-up 3 in transition.

Limited Kids Tucker Poolman Jersey George, who has made a name for himself with sparkling playoff performances, had set himself up. With the memes probably chambered and ready, George was either going to live up to it or feel the wrath.

And in a matchup against the Jazz, a team centered on a rookie, the Thunder entered with the two best players in the series.

But George’s ability to elevate himself is what keeps the Thunder scary. There is no playoff version of Russell Westbrook — there’s just Russell Westbrook — but he can rise and fall in terms of efficiency and decision-making. Anthony is a threat to hit batches of 3s and could be a reliable crunch-time option in isolation when possessions stall out, but he has accepted and embraced a role playing off of his co-stars.

Trent Murphy Youth Jersey House spent 2011-2014 with the Packers after being drafted in the fourth round of the 2011 draft and came back to the team after two years with the Jaguars. He started 12 games, recorded 44 tackles and picked off the seventh pass of his career last season.

Tom Brady Jersey tops NFLPA Top 50 Player Sales List again

Once again, Tom Brady has started and ended the NFL year with the most sales in NFL merchandise.

The Patriots quarterback started and ended the season on top of the NFLPA Top 50 Player Sales List, which marks the second time in three seasons he has finished No. 1.

The merchandise was tracked from March 1, 2017 to Feb. 28, 2018. It marks the fifth time Brady has topped a quarterly NFLPA sales list and twice with him starting and ending the year on top.

Like Hester, Forte is a player whose impact may soon be a rarity. In an age when many teams feature multiple backs, Forte retired after 10 years with 14,468 yards from scrimmage, the most by any NFL player during the past decade.

Going into the NFL, I knew it was a production-based league and consistency is better than peaks and valleys, Forte said. So I wanted to be the best at all times and be available at all times for my teammates and my team.

Goaltending. After a shaky few weeks leading up to the playoffs, Lightning goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy posted a .941 save percentage overall and a .945 at even strength in an impressive performance against the Christian Yelich Jersey Devils. Tuukka Rask … well, he didn’t do much to quiet the drumbeat of his critics, with a first-round performance that yielded an .899 save percentage and a 2.94 goals-against average. (Rask did have a .913 save percentage at even strength.) Advantage: Lightning

Special teams. The Lightning were 5-for-25 against the Devils on the power play, after finishing third in the NHL during the regular season at 23.9 percent. But the penalty kill was quite ordinary in the regular season, finishing 28th in the league (76.1 percent). The Lightning were 16-of-19 against the Devils.

The Bruins were 7-for-22 on the power play against the Leafs, after finishing fourth in the NHL during the regular season (23.5). The Bruins were only 11-for-15 on the kill against Toronto but were a sterling 83.7 percent in the regular season. Advantage: Bruins

Report: Dolphins told Ryan Tannehill Jersey he’ll start if they draft a first-round QB

The Dolphins are sufficiently interested in drafting a first-round quarterback that they’re doing some damage control with their current quarterback.
Nike NFL Art Monk Burgundy Red Jersey Men's Limited: #81 Washington Redskins Home Vapor Untouchable
As they consider the possibility of taking a quarterback, and perhaps even moving into the top 10 to get one, the Dolphins told Ryan Tannehill that they’re committed to him as their starting quarterback in 2018 even if they draft another quarterback, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

I saw [Mayfield] at Kansas this year, in the OU-Kansas game. You’re darn right he’s a good quarterback, no matter how tall he is. Some would say he’s too short, but I would ask you: How tall is Russell Wilson? How tall is Chase Daniel? Kai Forbath Jersey Dorsey told Sports Illustrated. He downplayed Mayfield’s 2017 arrest for public intoxication, crotch-grab at the Kansas sideline and planting of a flag on Ohio State’s Block O.

Every young man will make a mistake in his life, I bet you, Dorsey told Cleveland.com. And I think he’s very remorseful of that mistake and I think he’s moved forward from that, and he’s trying to make himself a better person, going through the process.

With two top-four picks, they could be trying to induce another team to deal for either pick.

May be a pretty good bet, but seriously we all know it’s a convenient place to be, Jones said. I don’t know of anybody maybe other than me that’s had more boos than Roger has. I know about how that works. I do hope we can be positive in our reception. We are going to do something pretty special and he did have a final say in that.

We’ll find out on Thursday night, but there may not be too many people joining Jones in a bet on a big hug for Goodell.

A spokesperson for Turner Sports acknowledged there could be multiple reasons for the drop in viewership, including the fact fans might have turned the game off once Villanova started running away with it, but said the network strives to accurately portray the number that Nielsen generates.

TJ Brodie Kids Jersey Still, in the eyes of many TV experts, it’s the distorted communication that represents the crux of the problem.

I think one of the best examples happened on Super Sunday where, depending on how you do the numbers, either NBC had the least-watched Super Bowl in nine years or it was an all-time TV record, Crupi said of February’s Super Bowl LII, which averaged 103.4 million viewers, the lowest margin since 2009.

Jaguars haven’t made a decision yet on Dante Fowler’s option

The Jaguars have done pretty well in the draft in recent years, but the jury is still out on the third overall pick from three years ago. And so the Jaguars admit they’ve yet to decide whether to pick up the fifth-year option on defensive end Dante Fowler‘s contract.

Fowler tore an ACL during rookie minicamp in 2015, only days after he was picked. He had four sacks in 2016 and eight in 2017.

This is a good week to track the happenings from the Braves bullpen, where closer Arodys Vizcaino is already 0-for-1 in save chances and has shown shaky control, while middle relievers A.J. Minter, Sam Freeman, Peter Moylan and Daniel Winkler have all outpitched him. Minter’s electric stuff is a great Week 3 match for a Phillies lineup that has a lot of swing-and-miss in it, and for a New York Mets team that gets a good amount of production from left-handed hitters. If there’s to be a performance-related closer change in this next week-plus, Atlanta’s is one to monitor closely.

On Sunday, Mora took to Twitter to call out those who question Rosen’s talent or commitment, and went as far as to say that the quarterback could prove to be a Hall of Fame talent.

This is called conviction, and Accorsi had it for Roethlisberger and Eli Manning — just as he did, years earlier, in his NFL apprenticeship in Baltimore, watching one of his heroes, Johnny Unitas, up close and, in 1983, when he drafted John Elway.

If he had not been able to engineer a trade with the Chargers in the tense early moments of the 2004 draft, Accorsi would have moved on from the disappointment of not landing Eli Manning and selected Big Ben. Accorsi viewed both players as franchise-defining quarterbacks and, with the benefit of history as a guide, he was correct in that assessment. Preferring Manning to Roethlisberger, Accorsi said, was a “hairline” distinction.海鹰53

Titans plan to exercise Marcus Mariota Jersey 2019 option

Teams have to make decisions about exercising options on their 2015 first-round picks by May 3 and some calls are easier than others.
Women's Majestic Philadelphia Phillies #14 Pete Rose Replica Pink Fashion Cool Base MLB Jersey
One of the easiest is the one that the Titans have to make. Quarterback Marcus Mariota was their top pick that year as they tried to find a long-term answer at starting quarterback. Mariota’s had some ups and downs in his first three seasons, but the Titans made the playoffs last year and he’s shown enough signs of future success that keeping him for a fifth year likely didn’t require much contemplation.

The Bruins outshot the Maple Leafs 42-30 but their top line of Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak, so dominant in the first two games, did not get a point in Game 3.

I don’t think they’ll be frustrated at all, Boston coach Bruce Cassidy. They’ve been through — Pasta not as much, the other two have been through — a lot of playoffs. Sometimes it’s going to go your way. Sometimes it’s not. Pasta had a lot of good looks that he’s going to finish. We saw it in the first two games. Clearly, it’s going to give them motivation. It should. When you Authentic David Rundblad Jersey keep them off the scoresheet, it’ll be talked about. At the end of the day, I don’t think it’ll bother them one bit.

I understand it happens, Pouncey said, via Greg Beachem of the Associated Press. It was just the way it happened. I was there for seven years, and for them to not bring me in, sit me down and let me know what was going on, especially the fact that me and my brother (Maurkice) worked out there every single day this offseason, sat down and met with the coaches every single day 鈥?it just didn’t sit well with me. Guys come in and get cut all the time, but I was there for seven years. They could have at least brought me in, instead of texting my agent and ignoring my phone calls and texts all day.

Elite Kids Jon Merrill Jersey Pouncey said the experience will provide some added motivation for him as he joins the Chargers and seeks a playoff appearance for the first time in his career.

Elite Kids Ronnie Lott Jersey I’m a guy that doesn’t need much fuel to add to the fire, but when you do stuff like that and add fuel to the fire, it just makes you want to prove everybody wrong. So I’m excited for it, Pouncey said.

Lamar Jackson Jersey visiting the Bengals

The Bengals traded down in the first round with a team that wants to acquire a quarterback.
Nike NFL Vernon Butler Black : #92 Carolina Panthers Name & Number Logo Pullover Hoodie
Game Frostee Rucker Jersey They may still be able to themselves, or at least may be interested in it.
Game Bradley McDougald Jersey
According to Paul Dehner of the Cincinnati Enquirer, Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson was in the locker room Monday, a pretty good indication he was taking a pre-draft visit.

Antetokounmpo got free for a dunk. But Horford was steady again after being fouled, connecting on two more from the line with 15.2 seconds left.

Out of a timeout, Brogdon got free on the wing and drained a 3 with 10.3 to play to tie it at 96.

Rozier dribbled the clock down before crossing over Eric Bledsoe, stepping back and swishing an apparent game-winner with a half-second showing the clock.

But after a Milwaukee timeout advanced the ball to half court, Middleton matched it with his own 3 over Brown as time expired.

Both teams are going to keep fighting, Bucks coach Joe Prunty said. That’s what this series is going to be. Each little play is going to matter.

Suh, who arrived this year with a one-year, $14 million contract to play for the Rams, has been announced as the new No. 93. Westbrooks, who is set to make $1.25 million this season, will now wear No. 95.

There’s no immediate word on what Suh did to convince Westbrooks to give him the jersey number that Suh wore both with the Dolphins and at Nebraska, but players often buy numbers from other players, and that’s presumably what Suh did on his new team.

James made his first five attempts and scored Cleveland’s first 16 points, making a pair of 3-pointers and then picking up assists on 3s by Love and Korver. James outscored the Pacers 20-18 in the first 12 minutes.

Pacers: Shot 6 of 22 on 3-pointers. … Oladipo became the fourth player in Pacers history with at least 30 points and six 3-pointers in a postseason game in the opener, joining Reggie Miller, Chuck Person Womens Tanoh Kpassagnon Jersey and Paul George. … Dropped to 22-22 in Game 2s, including 6-18 on the road.

All that trade speculation regarding Odell Beckham Jr. Jersey was not lost on his quarterback

I think over the years you just can’t get caught up with what’s being said on TV or in the news or what people assume is happening, Manning said Monday as the Giants gathered for the first day of their offseason workout program. I never got too concerned with it. We all know the talent Odell has and what he brings to the football field. Look forward to playing with him this year and for years to come.
Youth Replica Majestic Darwin Barney Green Jersey - #20 MLB Texas Rangers Salute To Service
Manning got the chance to check in directly with Beckham, who was an on-time arrival on Day 1, unlike a year ago, when he opted to remain in Los Angeles for most of the springtime work as his teammates filled the Giants’ facility. Although new head coach Pat Shurmur said I’m not overthinking this in terms of attaching all sorts of meaning to Beckham’s attendance, he clearly was heartened to see the star receiver in the building.

Asked if he specifically questioned Beckham if there were drugs in the hotel room, Shurmur said, That’s private between Odell and myself but we talked about the video.

Beckham and Manning did not talk about the video.

Authentic Womens Glover Quin Jersey No, I didn’t talk to him about that, Manning said. I don’t get caught up in offseason or videos and this and that. I think whatever, that’s Josh Martin Youth jersey just kind of the world today, sometimes things come up, he’s got to deal with that, but I think he’ll handle that well and put his focus on playing football at a high level.

SI.com first mentioned the possibility of Strahan hosting FOX’s pregame on Thursdays.
Authentic Womens Torrey Mitchell Jersey
A source said that if it does happen, Strahan’s GMA schedule will be unchanged. During the football season, he misses Mondays because he commutes from Fox’s Los Angeles studios to New York. Strahan would continue to work on Friday mornings after the Thursday night Fox games.

Earlier this week, The Post reported that Joe Buck and Troy Aikman are now Fox’s choice for the 11-game Thursday night package in the wake of Peyton Manning turning down the opportunity.

Fox will have 11 of the 18 Thursday games, while the seven others will be on the NFL Network. It is highly unlikely that Buck and Aikman will work the NFL-exclusive telecasts.

Fox will produce the seven NFL Network games 鈥?some of which are on Saturdays. In the NFL’s contract with Fox, it states, according to sources, that Fox must have A List talent in the booth. It is not exactly known how the NFL defines A List.

Mora was fired in November after Rosen and UCLA fell to Darnold and USC, 28-23.

The Carolina Panthers owner who had to sell his team amid allegations of workplace misconduct was an “outstanding” person who was probably just joking with his advances on his female employees, Texans owner Bob McNair said Sunday.

Jerry Richardson put his team up for bids after a Sports Illustrated report emerged that detailed the 81-year-old reaching at least four “significant” monetary settlements with former employees due to his behavior, from asking his female workers if he could shave their legs to allegedly racially slurring a black Panthers scout.

That may be just Richardson’s brand of humor, McNair said.

“What I’ve learned so far,’’ he said, “is I don’t think our cage work needs to be together, meaning me watching him, him watching me. It won’t benefit as much because we are so different in styles. But the approach on pitchers and their process will skyrocket us.”

Skyrocket takes on a whole new meaning when you consider Judge hit 52 home runs last year to lead the AL and Stanton crushed 59 to lead the majors.

“Maybe [swing] paths because of same bat length, same arm length, that will help,’’ Stanton said. “But I think our biggest key is: ‘Why did they do that to you? What were you thinking? And why did they do that to me and what was I thinking?’ That’s what I’ve learned so far.”

Rosen — who has worked out privately for both the Giants and the Jets — has been a polarizing prospect. There seems to be little doubt he can sling it, but scouts have questioned his love for football — because Rosen is outspoken — and whether his penchant for speaking his mind could be a distraction.

While Mora may be catching some heat for not backing his own guy as the potential No. 1 pick, he has previously said Rosen would be a better pro.

“I think they’re both going to be great pros, first of all,” Mora said on Fox Sports’ Undisputed in December. “Totally different styles of play, but I’m going to go with Josh, because he’s a pure passer. He’s got a motion that you would love to see in your minicamp. I mean, it’s just pure, and it’s clean, and he can make every throw. He can throw with velocity, he can throw with touch.

“But I love Darnold because he’s a gym rat and he can improvise. He can make things happen on the move. They’re going to play a different style of offenses. I think Darnold gives you a little bit more running ability, a little bit more mobility in the pocket.jets_108

Vikings sign Eric Kendricks Jersey to 5-year, $50M extension

Now that the Vikings have added Kirk Cousins to bolster the offense, they are turning their attention to nucleus players on the other side of the ball.
K.J. Wright Women's Nike Olive/Camo 2017 Salute to Service Limited NFL Jersey - Seattle Seahawks #50 Jerseys
Minnesota signed linebacker Eric Kendricks to a contract extension Monday . The new deal is worth $50 million over five years with $25 million guaranteed, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport and NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported, via a source informed of the situation.

After an eighth-place standing in Football Outsiders’ 2016 defensive metrics, the Vikings finished behind only the Jaguars last season.

Game Womens Kyle Juszczyk Jersey Now that Spielman has added former NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year Sheldon Richardson without losing any part of his talented core, this defense should push for the top spot in the upcoming season.

The term work is used extremely loosely in this scenario. Any Womens Timmy Jernigan Jersey starting point on Thomas’ decision to be or not be present for the start of the team’s offseason program must begin with the fact that the offseason program until mandatory mini-camp is optional. Organizations expect their players to show up, even at times incentivizing it in their contracts, and with the significant changes the front office made this offseason it may be more important to build team camaraderie and eventually install some schematic knowledge. But none of that is happening on Monday or over the next few weeks at all for that matter, except for an opportunity to talk to the new coaching staff for the time.

For now, the Seahawks can only install a weight-lifting and conditioning program for their players to use daily but no individual or team drills are allowed during this time. In other words, Thomas can do his own training from elsewhere. In fact, he took that exact same tract last year while rehabbing his broken tibia. Instead of reporting for the offseason program, he chose to rehab and work out on his own. The results of 2017 speak for themselves in terms of his production leading to another All-Pro selection.

Jarvis Landry Jersey signs 5-year, $75 million extension with Browns

Before throwing Jarvis Landry a pass, the Cleveland Browns made a huge commitment to him.
NFL Nike Indianapolis Colts #96 Henry Anderson Green Salute To Service Men's Pullover Hoodie
Cleveland signed the star wide receiver to a five-year, $75 million contract extension on Friday night, locking up a game-changing player they’re counting on for the future.

I’ve always dreamed of two things: taking care of my family and playing football, Landry said. I’ve become a product of hard work, sacrifice, persistence and mental toughness. Jerry Rice said the thing that made him so great was the fear of failure. I’ve been afraid of failure my whole life. I’ve endured my share, but in each and every discomforting time I’ve failed, I’ve also grown, I’ve also learned, I’ve also found success.

Authentic Womens Jaromir Jagr Jersey The Browns have the No. 1 and No. 4 overall picks and are expected to select a quarterback. However, that pick is likely to spend at least one season backing up newly acquired QB Tyrod Taylor, who will have Landry as a target.
