Skeptical of CTE link, NHL won’t fund concussion research

by Nancy Armour , USA TODAY Sports | Jan. 25, 2017

The NFL has been criticized both for the amount of money it has donated for head trauma research and trying to manipulate how it is spent.

But at least it has donated.

The NHL has not given money to any of the four centers leading research into neurodegenerative diseases, specifically the question of why so many football and hockey players develop chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), USA TODAY Sports has found.



[Spurs, Dejounte Murray] The Rookie And The Vet, Family For Life

ルーキーDejounteくんとベテランLMA。素敵な写真。そして“family for life”のキャプションにグッとくる。 ❤

これを見て思い出したのは、DejounteがBaby Boy(笑)と呼ばれていた頃から彼を支援してきたClippersのベテラン選手Jamal Crawfordのこと。いま読み返してみると記事にはLaMarcusの名前も出てくる。Portland時代のチームメイトとしてJamalの結婚式前日のチャリティ試合に参加して、そのときに若きDejounteにも会ったみたい。

NBA: Dejounte Murray’s biggest mentor is Jamal Crawford

by Michael C. Wright | ESPN | Dec 22, 2016

“You never know what a kid is going through,” Murray said. “I’m not going to speak on what I was going through, because I don’t want to put that out right now. But it was just rough. Some kids have a house, have their mom and dad, stuff like that. Then you have kids that go through it. It is what it is, just life. But like I said, more NBA players should reach out to kids.”

Pensの若手で苗字が同じMurrayくんも、子どもの頃に地元出身の元NHLerが(高価なため個人で購入するのは大変な)ゴーリー装具一式を寄付してくれてとても助かったと感謝していたが、Dejounteが育った境遇の過酷さやJamal Crawfordの貢献は別の次元だ。

Murray says Crawford “tried to help, but there was nothing he could really do. He was an NBA player. So he couldn’t come get me. There’s only so much you can tell somebody. He could text and say, ‘Stay out of the streets’ or whatever. But he wasn’t there. It was hard.”

“He helped us,” Murray says of Crawford. “He definitely was there for us if we ever needed something. He always stayed positive with me and my family. He always hit up my family, my mom, my sister, my uncles. He stayed in contact with me. He’d pretty much tell them to make sure my head is straight. ‘That kid has a chance.’ I’ve seen several messages from my uncles, my mom with them just saying Jamal just texted me saying little things like that.”

Dejounteがメンターとして面倒を見ているという地元の子たちは、最近のDejounteの活躍にどんなにわくわくしているだろう。がんばれDejounte、Go Spurs!!!

おまけにCP3負傷中は苦しい戦いを強いられるであろうJamalさん、陰ながら応援しています、Go Clippers!!!

それにしても、週に2~3回は試合があり、経験豊富なベテランが多いとはいえ、Spursは1ヶ月以上もチーム練習をしないのか…! 😯

Golden State Warriors (38-6) vs. Miami Heat (14-30) – Jan. 23, 2017

本日のSpurs vs. Netsは、Kawhiを含む四枚落ち(?)にもかかわらずSpursが大勝。

若手くんたちの起用法をテストするには良い機会になっただろうけれど(私もKyleがボールを持つのにだんだん慣れてきました)、後半は大差がついてしまい、判官びいきとしては申し訳ない気持ちに。早くLinが復活しますように… 😦

OKC vs. JazzはRussの活躍もあり競り負け。今期のRussとOKCは応援しないわけにはいかないので、こちらもやや複雑な気持ちに。

そんな中(関係のないSpurs vs. Netsスレッドに)飛び込んできたのは、「GSWが負けた!」との速報(笑)。KDの元チームメイトとしては初の快挙になるのかな。おめでとうございます、殊勲賞のDion & Heat!!! 8)

#WomensMarch: Pop、Lebron、ホッケー界の反応など



Popovich has more to say about President Trump

By Jeff McDonald | Spurs Nationn | January 21, 2017

And what really bothers me are the people around him, the Sean Spicers, the Kellyanne Conways the Reince Preibuses, who know who he is and actually have the cynical approach and disingenuous attitude to really defend him and make him look like he didn’t say what he said.  […]

このShout Outに対して「Lebronへのリスペクトをすべて失った」などと返信する人があったり(ヒラリーの選挙応援はOKだったのか???)、「そりゃキングもさぞ悲しがるでしょうよ」「Lebronが女性をリスペクトするから?」などとさらにツッコミが入ったりしております。



San Antonio Spurs (33-9) vs. Cleveland Cavaliers (30-11) – Jan. 21, 2017

先日はPenは幸運だという記事を紹介したけれど、Kawhiを擁するSpursもまた幸運なり。そしてPopお墨付き[1]『キング』の活躍を目撃できるのも最高に幸運。 😀 😀 😀

[Pens] Geno 30歳:体調万全にして絶好調、自らの成長と親友Sidについて語る


Evgeni Malkin healthy, productive for Penguins

by Nicholas J. Cotsonika | NHL.com

“It means so much for me,” Malkin said. “I come to the rink every day. I see how Sid works and I try follow him. It’s, like, I know he’s best player in NHL for the last two years, over the last 10 years, and I just try follow him. In practice I try to repeat [what he does]. When he scores I try do my best and score too, try just be better every day like him. He never stops. He tries to work hard every day, tries be better every day, and I look to him. … I’m a lucky guy to be here.

“The Penguins are lucky too.

Utah Jazz (26-16) vs. Phoenix Suns (13-27) – Jan. 16, 2017


このところ負けがこんでおり(Pens3の連敗を筆頭として…)、嬉しい白星。特にSunsの『フィジカル』なプレイ・スタイルは好きになれないので余計に嬉しい。どれほど好きになれないかというと、Bookerの童顔にまでイラっとしてしまうほど。[1] 😈



ですよねー。そしてRudyくんもお忘れなく!(InglesさんもDiaw先輩も後輩のために最後の一押し、優しいなあ 😀 )
Other Stories : Rudy Gobert & Boris Diaw (English Subtitles)

Bookerの年齢を調べてみると、96年生まれの20歳、ホンマに若い! HCのEarl Watsonも79年生まれの37歳。こちらも若い~(うちのManuさんより2歳も年下)! ふたりとも童顔というよりも年齢相応か。

[NBA] Warriors、辞任させられた元警察署長をセキュリティ・アドバイザーとして雇う

GSW何を目指しているのか。オーナーがalt-right(=白人優越主義)系の人なのかしら。 😦

Warriors hire disgraced former San Francisco Police Chief as security adviser

by Lindsay Gibbs | ThinkProgress

Suhr resigned from the San Francisco Police Department last May at the request of San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee after police in his district fatally shot an unarmed black woman. But San Francisco residents had been clamoring for him to step down for over a year prior.

Under Suhr’s purview, the SFPD was mired in accusations of racial profiling and police brutality.

Cleveland Cavaliers (28-8) vs. Utah Jazz (23-16) – Jan. 10, 2016



Jazzファンとはいえ、Nash以来のカナダ人選手びいきとしてはTTの活躍が嬉しく、最高に楽しいゲームでした。このままJazzが健康な状態を保てばプレイオフでの番狂わせもあるかも。もしJazz vs. SpursがWCFで実現したら…(妄想中)

Go Jazz!!! 😎 😎 😎
