Ben Simmons Says 76ers Were "Too Soft" Vs. Hawks, Jimmy Butler Objects

As reported, the Philadelphia 76ers are fervently in search of methods to achieve an edge on the competitors, even on the price dealing away a 1st Round Pick for complimentary items. Markelle Fultz’ commerce inventory is at an all-time low, so inevitably, the Sixers are shortly working out choices to proper the ship in 2018-2019. Philly’s present dilemma was by no means extra evident than in yesterday’s 123-121 loss at residence to the Atlanta Hawks.

After the sport, Jimmy Butler and Ben Simmons bickered in separate rendezvous with the press, with out coming to blows, in a matter talking. Simmons’ insistence was that he and his teammates lacked depth and bodily of their loss to the (13-29) Hawks. 

However, Jimmy Butler wholly objected to the assertions made by his 2nd-year teammate, in stating that he despised the phrase “st.” Butler’s perception is that he and the 76ers merely lack the precise persistence “begin to end.” He put it in these actual phrases.

The final the post-game commentary was reserved for 76ers’ coach Brett Brown. He merely desires his troopers to place in a extra dedicated effort on the defensive finish the ground. Ben Simmons will definitely stroll away from this encounter, with a “triple-double” granting him immunity, and trigger for a sideways expression.

Andrew Wiggins Reacts To Booing: "We've Got Some Sh*tty Fans"

As their dearly beloved Minnesota Timberwolves fell sufferer to the Atlanta Hawks in additional time, followers clung to their favourite scapegoat by booing him vociferously. Unfortunately for Andrew Wiggins, he’s the chosen pariah in Minnesota, based mostly on his capturing woes – 5–12 on the line (74 over the season). With an NBA max deal comes nice duty, and ticket holders felt it was their obligation to let Wiggins know the way they felt about his performances up so far the season.

Things definitely did not get f to a dream begin for Wiggins, as he forgot to put on his ‘Wolves jersey in warmups, which nearly needlessly made him miss the opening tipf as he scrounged for correct gear with the tools supervisor. “It occurs,” Wiggins defined. “It’s one these days and one these video games.” But the house crowd wasn’t shopping for it one bit. Mental preparation is a should.

But it wasn’t solely Andrew Wiggins struggling from the road. The Minnesota Timberwolves as a complete have been 21–38 from the free throw line, numbers that definitely would have compensated for the Three-point margin the 123-120 scoreline.

And to make issues worse, Derrick Rose, who did his half with 25 factors in a beginning function, sprained his ankle late within the recreation, throughout which Andrew Wiggins obtained his fair proportion boos everytime he discovered himself on the line. After the sport, Wigging commented on the blended alerts he will get from the T-Wolves trustworthy. “That’s followers for you,” Wiggins mentioned. “We’ve acquired some s—ty followers, and we have some good followers. That’s simply the way it works.”

Ben Simmons Reflects On Rookie Of The Year Triumph: "It Wasn't A F–king Race"

Ben Simmons is a polarizing determine within the sense that his brash confidence splits the fan vote into Betas and Alphas. If that kind classification appears dated on a philosophical degree, that is as a result of a “Mamba Mentality” solely works on the sphere play – not as properly behind closed doorways.

When Ben Simmons, a self-proclaimed “alpha,” visited Salt Lake City, Thursday Night, he had one factor on his thoughts: edging his rival Donovan Mitchell, the particular person he beat out by a large margin within the 2018 Rookie the Year voting race. But on the danger sounding trite, Ben Simmons would love the media to make use of a unique phrase than “race” when describing the ultimate voting outcomes: 90-11 in Simmons’ favor.

After serving to his facet to 114-97 win over Donovan Mitchell and the Utah Jazz, Ben Simmons basked in a refrain boos from the house crowd. “I really like having the ability to come into an enviornment and listen to boos and chants, no matter it’s, see indicators and are available right here and win by 20,” mentioned Simmons after the sport. “I imply, there’s nothing higher than that.”

And if you happen to thought the award was sufficient to defuse the strain between Simmons and his then-rookie rival, suppose once more. Within the identical press convention, instructed one other reporter representing the Salt Lake City Tribune to examine his biases on the door. When requested to characterize final 12 months’s rivalry with Mitchell, Ben Simmons resorted to expletive language. “It wasn’t a f–king race,” Simmons mentioned. “You noticed the votes, proper? … Did you see the votes? So what’s the query?” Besides serving to his facet to a victory, Ben Simmons posted one more triple-double scoreline 13 factors, 14 rebounds, 12 assists, on the night time.

"Grammys Robbed Migos," According To Quality Control's CEO

Every 12 months, we enter the identical dialogue over who received snubbed by the Grammys, and their crooked membership committee. Even if we disagree in precept, on who was unjustly reduce from the record, all of us to look to agree that one thing “ain’t proper.” When it involves Grammy-bashing, those that communicate the loudest are ten these with much less at stake. One particular person I think, who airs on the aspect warning extra ten than not, is QC’s Pierre “Pee” Thomas. But even he, with all his connections at Universal, felt the necessity to let f some steam. His take: the Grammys’ snobbery is getting out hand.

Pierre “Pee” Thomas, one half  the manager order at Quality Control, manages a secure big-name artists, together with Migos, via an association with Universal Music. His IG message in ’19 was somewhat easy: “Grammys Robbed Migos a nomination. We Still Hustling Thou.” And thought the premise Pee’s argument is difficult by inconclusiveness, we will not assist however agree with him, on the grounds that Grammy standards is fairly esoteric. You may argue, the choice committee is mainly responsible making it up as they go alongside. Realistically-speaking, do you assume Migos deserved a nomination in 2018? Hit us along with your ideas.

Tiffany Haddish & Katt Williams Win Emmys In "Best Guest Actor" Category

Do the “Creative Emmys” count as “silverware?” The answer is indubitably yes, an Emmy is an Emmy, they just don’t all come with the same fanfare. The Creative Arts Emmy Awards are in place to recognize the more unheralded cultural contributors: the technicians, the actors in guest roles, animation work, weekly segments (production) and things that nature that never make it in the primetime slot. But like I said previously, an Emmy is an Emmy, and this year’s first round honorees pack quite the punch.

Comedienne Tiffany Haddish won “best guest actress in a comedy” for hosting Saturday Night Live, her performance got f to a nervy start in the opening monologue, from there things only got better by a long measure as you might imagine. Ron Cephas Jones nabbed the “best guest actor in a drama” award for This Is Us. Samira Wiley copped the “best guest actress in a drama” for The Handmaid’s Tale, and Katt Williams for “best guest actor in a comedy” for Atlanta. Williams’ dramatic cameo was perceived to be a sign atonement. The comedian played Earn’s Uncle Willy, a self-destructive character on the run from the law.The categorical sweep all “guest” categories by POC actors is a “historical” first for The Emmys, the emphasis being on “guest” and “historical.” TV diversity remains a contentious issue with regards to way race is depicted, not the number entrants. Congrats to all the winners.

John Wall Says Wizards Are On Par With The Raptors, Celtics & 76ers

John Wall spoke with Yahoo Sports’ Michael Lee about the Washington Wizards prospects heading into next season. Rather than contemplate growing pains over roster movement, Wall likened his side to the best in the East. Wall sees a vacuum emerging out LeBron James’ West Coast conversion, and refuses to believe the Celtics, 76ers or Raptors are in a better position moving forward.

“I feel like we’re all equal. None them won a championship. This is no knock on no other team. Don’t get me wrong,” Wall told Michael Lee. The Wizard’s point guard went to portray the Boston Celtics as “a hell a team,” the 76ers’ group as “great young talent,” and the Toronto Raptors as a franchise making ostensible improvements every year. And yet, John Wall insists: “Ain’t nobody separated from nothing” in the East.

Part me believes LeBron’s predominance in the Eastern Conference was psychologically induced. I reckon that many games between LeBron and Eastern Conference opponents were essentially decided before the opening whistle. Players like Wall and DeRozan have been overly-consumed with mitigating LeBron’s in-game presence, to the point where they’ve begun to neglect their own instincts for the game.

Both Jayson Tatum and Joel Embiid are alphas on the rise, whom I believe John Wall has met and grown to respect. The Washington Wizards on the other hand, are a band  mismatched personalities until proven otherwise. Just my opinion.

Donald Trump Reveals His “Fake News" Awards On Twitter

Just as he promised, Donald Trump decided to hop on Twitter Wednesday night and reveal his “Fake News” awards. However, the link Trump sent out didn’t even work coincidentally.

The message linked to a malfunctioning page on the Republican National Committee website, which read: “The site is temporarily fline, we are working to bring it back up. Please try back later.”

The page would eventually return less than an hour later with a list Trump-era accomplishments and jabs at several news organizations in the process. The “winners” were CNN, mentioned four times; The New York Times, with two mentions; and ABC, The Washington Post, Time and Newsweek all with one mention apiece.

Rather than specific awards however, the site listed 10 news stories that Trump viewed as false. The entries focused on stories where the media outlets had admitted errors and issued corrections, like those by ABC News’ Brian Ross, and CNN’s incorrect reporting on when Donald Trump, Jr. had access to hacked WikiLeaks documents.

After the tweet, Trump would follow to up by saying: “there are many great reporters that I respect and lots GOOD News for the American people to be proud !”

White House Correspondents’ Association president Margaret Talev issued a statement in response to the awards, saying, “Reporters will continue to work every day to inform Americans what their government is doing in their name and with their money.”
