Adam Silver: Seattle has good shot when NBA expands

Seattle was once a proud NBA franchise for nearly 40 years before it moved to Oklahoma City.

The Supersonics won an NBA championship in 1979 and went to two more NBA Finals in 1978 and 1996. Great players like Gary Payton, Jack Sikma, Ray Allen and many more played for the Sonics.

Allen and several other players have been trying to get a team back to Seattle in recent years and Adam Silver gave them hope in an interview with The Players Tribune and C.J. McCollum.

Brazilian international Neymar is one of the best footballers in the world, but he plays on the same club team as Lionel Messi. Reports have been flying fast and furious claiming the fleet-footed forward is hoping to ditch Barcelona for Paris Saint Germain.

According to ESPN FC, Neymar and PSG have already agreed to personal terms while waiting for the two clubs to come to an agreement.

Irving, on the other hand, distributes the ball to LeBron James, arguably one of the best NBA players of all time. Irving has reportedly demanded a trade, hoping to get more credit on a different team.

The parallels between the two sidekicks is shockingly similar. Both players put up eye-popping numbers, which has helped elevate their status as one of the best in their respective sports. However, when Barcelona or Cleveland enjoy success, Neymar and Irving are rarely at the forefront of the media. That distinction usually goes to Messi and James.

At PSG, Neymar would still have star players around him, but he would instantly be the team’s most polarizing talent. It would be his team, and he would receive the bulk of the credit if he were able to lead the French giants to a Champions League victory.

NHL playoffs 2017: Ducks tie series vs. Predators with OT win in Game 4

The NHL’s Western Conference finals between the Ducks and Predators resumed Thursday in Nashville. Visiting Anaheim evened the series at two games apiece with a 3-2 overtime victory in Game 4.

Corey Perry’s pass from the boards deflected off P.K. Subban’s stick and into the net at 10:33 of the first overtime period to give the Ducks the win.

A question on the topic of head injuries elicited Kariya’s longest response of Monday’s conference call.

Insisting he doesn’t harbor ill will against the NHL, he feels concussion protocol is going in the right direction, though there is still progress to be made.

There’s no fences to be mended, Kariya said. I’m very grateful for every second I played in the National Hockey League and hockey in general.

It was my dream, my passion. Everything I put into my career was because I loved the game of hockey. I didn’t retire willingly. I would have loved to have kept playing. If there was any way of waving a magic wand and getting that back … I would do it again in a heartbeat.

No matter who his linemates are, Niederreiter said he’s now focused on going out and continue his development arc.

I’ve been fortunate to be with the Wild for quite a bit now, and obviously for each year I’ve been trying to get better and better, he said. That’s been showing the past four years. Now the goal is to get even better, and now getting the chance to stay there for the next five years it’s just a matter of getting better, and working harder to be a better player and help the team win.
