[Spurs] 特製ベジ・フルーツ100%『スーパー・シェイク』で疲労回復

レシピは秘密らしいです。H‑E‑BでSlam Duncan O’sと並べて売り出したらいいのに!

The San Antonio Spurs, made with 100 percent juice

By Michael C. Wright / ESPN Staff Writer

Kawhi Leonard’s custom cold-pressed juice has been named “Kawhi-Zilla” by Spurs staff, and features strawberry, watermelon, lemon and chia seed. LaMarcus Aldridge drinks one with a label that reads “LaLa Leave My Juice Alone,” which is a mixture of pineapple, orange, strawberry, spinach and secrecy. For the last three years, nearly every player on San Antonio’s roster drinks his own personalized juice whipped up by the staff as an aid to recovery.

GreenさんのはやはりGreen Juice?(笑)

It’s one of many things the Spurs do in the name of player health. Does it work? Hard to say. But also hard to ignore, especially if you’re one of the 29 teams that trails the Spurs when it comes to injury prevention. Over the last decade, and despite an older roster, the Spurs have ranked first in the league with only 1,054 missed games to injury. During the 2015-16 season, Spurs players missed only 59 games due to injury, according to In Street Clothes.

[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…! 😯

#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。 😀 😀 😀

Milwaukee Bucks (18-18) vs. San Antonio Spurs (30-7) – Jan. 10, 2017

今期18-18のチームだし、話題のGiannis Antetokounくんは体調不良だそうでほぼベンチだし、楽に勝てるのかと思っていたが、どうして。 😯

調子が上向いてきたみたい。殊勲賞は文句なしのBertans! 8)


面白いのは、Spursファン以外には無名といっていい若手選手が活躍したことへの反応。Pensの若手くんたちがプレイオフやファイナルで大活躍したときには「一体全体Bryan Rustて誰やねん?!?!」とみなが驚きを隠さなかったのに、Spursの場合は「Spursがまたやりおった…」となる。

Death, taxes and the Spurs. San Antonio boasts a league-best +16.1 net rating over its last 10 games, playing the NBA’s most efficient offense and defense and moving in full stride. Their last seven wins have come by 20, 19, 21, 26, 28, 28 and 17 points. Let’s hand them proper credit, at least until next week.

Toronto Raptors (23-10) @ San Antonio Spurs (27-7) – Jan. 03, 2017


TORは怪我人もあってやや精彩を欠き、大差のついた4th Qはほぼgarbageタイム。今シーズンはこの時間帯が楽しみ。今日はブロック祭りでした。 😀

[Spurs] ホリデイの“give back”と迷信


ところで、Kyleといえば亡くなった親友のために自殺防止に熱心に取り組んでいて、ホリデイは自殺が増える時期でもある--と思っていたのですが、ふと検索してみたところ… 😯

[Spurs] Tony Parkerが出資し、チームで鑑賞した映画“The Birth of a Nation”

Trigger Warning: Rape

Popはいまでも映画“The Birth of a Nation”に賞賛を送るだろうか、作品を監督/主演したNate Parkerの過去のレイプ疑惑が明らかになった後でも?
