76ers coach Brown has faith Fultz, Simmons can hit 3s

first_imgBut as long-distance shooters, Simmons and Fultz went 0 for the season on 3s; Simmons, the NBA rookie of the year, missed all 11 attempts and Fultz went 0 for 1 from 3-point range.Sixers coach Brett Brown said both players have put in the work needed on their jumpers, though neither player will ever become defined by his work beyond the arc. Brown said Fultz took about 150,000 shots this summer under the tutelage of trainer Drew Hanlen. Simmons has worked with his brother, Liam, a former college basketball assistant coach, at 3s and shooting from the elbow.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissSimmons attempted just one 3 in the postseason and he’ll have to establish some sort of long-range jumper to become a serious all-around threat in the NBA.“His jump shot’s not going to define him,” Brown said Tuesday. “At some point, it will sure help. But I have aspirations, ambitions for him where I want him to feature on an all-defensive team. I personally want to post him more. I look forward to using him as a screener and giving Markelle the ball and let him roll out of it, that Blake Griffin-sort of half-roll and go to dunk.” Japeth Aguilar embraces role, gets rewarded with Finals MVP plum Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew LATEST STORIES Tim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown Phivolcs: Slim probability of Taal Volcano caldera eruption View comments Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Can you finish, can you be a better free-throw shooter than you were in the regular season? He has to be.”Fultz, the No. 1 pick of the 2017 draft, is bordering on bust territory after just one season. His rookie year was derailed by a mysterious shoulder injury, a broken shot and confidence issues. He played the first four games, missed 68 games because of injury, and then was benched in the playoffs against the Celtics. The most baffling moment came when he refused to answer questions about his shoulder, simply staring blankly ahead and rubbing his head.Fultz struggled with his mechanics when he did play, and his shooting form was widely mocked around the NBA. No one in the organization could pinpoint when Fultz’s form went awry, though he started experiencing soreness shortly after he was drafted.Brown said he was part of a “Team Markelle” formed this summer to help get the 20-year-old back on track.ADVERTISEMENT FILE – In this Wednesday, May 9, 2018 file photo,Philadelphia 76ers coach Brett Brown, right, talks with guard Ben Simmons before Game 5 of the team’s NBA basketball playoff series against the Boston Celtics in Boston.

When I look at the actual form, there are times, from a posture standpoint, he’s a little bit backward. When you look at him rising up, or getting the ball in his shot pocket, sometimes his head will go back and he’ll play more in a fade-type fundamental that we want to try and correct.”But if Simmons can’t shoot and Fultz can’t shoot, then how are they going to play together on a Sixers team that won 52 games last season?“At (some) point of the game, is it the start, is it ending, those two guys will play together,” Brown said. “There’s zero doubt we’ll go through some growing pains as everyone expects and should expect.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Gov’t to employ 6,000 displaced by Taal US Open umpire who spoke to Kyrgios gets 2-tournament banlast_img read more

Workers in Qatar W Cup final city unpaid for months: Amnesty

first_img0Shares0000Qatar is spending almost $500 million a week on World Cup infrastructure projectsLONDON, United Kingdom, Sep 26 – Dozens of migrants working on Qatar’s 45 billion-dollar World Cup final city of Lusail have gone unpaid for months, Amnesty International said Wednesday, the latest rights accusation against the 2022 tournament host.Mercury MENA, a contractor, “failed to pay its workers thousands of dollars in wages and work benefits, leaving them stranded and penniless” in the country, according to the London-based rights group. FIFA on Wednesday accused Amnesty of being “misleading” and said the non-payments were not connected to the 2022 tournament.“We have no reason to believe the reported violations of workers’ rights are in fact linked to FIFA and the 2022 World Cup,” a FIFA spokesman told AFP.“We regret Amnesty chose to frame its statement in such a misleading manner.”– ‘Not tolerated’ –Amnesty said at least 78 employees from Nepal, India and the Philippines had not been paid since February 2016 and were owed an average of $2,000 (1,700 euros) — for some the equivalent of several months’ wages.In some cases this had “ruined lives”, said Amnesty, which urged the Doha government to pay the workers, some of whom took out huge loans to secure a job in the super-wealthy Gulf state.One worker, Ernesto, a piping foreman from the Philippines, told Amnesty he was in greater debt after working in Qatar for two years than before he arrived in the country.Other labourers from Nepal said they had to take their children out of school or sell land to cover debts incurred by working in Qatar.Amnesty claimed Mercury MENA “took advantage” of Qatar’s “kafala” system, which prevents workers from changing jobs or leaving the country without the permission of bosses.Unpaid workers eventually allowed to leave Qatar only did so at their own cost, said Amnesty.As well as helping build Lusail city, which is also the venue for the 2022 football tournament’s opening match, Mercury MENA helped build a showcase stadium that was an integral part of Qatar’s winning presentation to FIFA in December 2010.In November, Amnesty said the company’s chief executive had acknowledged “cashflow problems”.MENA Mercury has not commented on the latest report.Qatar’s labour ministry on Wednesday said Mercury MENA no longer operated in the country and legal action and an investigation were under way.“The concerns highlighted by Amnesty International are not tolerated by the state of Qatar,” the ministry said in a statement.The findings come at a time when the World Cup host is under intense scrutiny over labour rights.Earlier this month, Doha said it would abolish exit permits — a cornerstone of the kafala system likened to modern-day slavery — but has not given a date for when this will come into force.In April, the International Labour Organization opened an office in Doha, part of an agreement under which the United Nations agency will oversee wholesale labour reform in the emirate.There are around two million foreign workers in Qatar, many employed directly or indirectly on vast World Cup infrastructure projects.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Starlets eye AWCON after CECAFA triumph

first_img0Shares0000Harambee Stars players line up before their CECAFA Women’s Championship Final against Tanzania at the Chamazi Complex in Dar Es Salaam on November 25, 2019. PHOTO/TFF/TwitterNAIROBI, Kenya, Nov 27 – After their conquest at the 2019 CECAFA Women’s Championship, national women’s football team harambee Starlets are motivated more than ever to gun for their second appearance at the African Women’s Cup of Nations (AWCON) next year.Starlets missed out on the 2018 edition by a whisker after losing out to Equatorial Guinea who were temporarily suspended, before being reinstated. Head coach David Ouma believes that the team’s mental strength has been greatly built by the performance in Dar where the team clinched the title on an unbeaten run, scoring 24 goals and conceding none.“We will try to keep on developing the mental attributes of the players, keep working on improving them and the team. We will keep a close eye on the AWCON, keep fighting because we have an equal chance,” Ouma stated.Harambee Starlets striker Mwanahalima Adam vies for the ball with a Zambian opponent. PHOTO/FAZStriker Mwanahalima Adam who played a crucial role in the 2016 qualification but missed out on the tournament due to KCSE exams says she is personally motivated to ensure that the team makes a return to continental football.“We have to get back to AWCON and this time we want to go back and do our best. I missed out in 2016 and though it was unavoidable, I was pained a bit. This time, I am motivated to do my best and help the team qualify,” Adam stated.Meanwhile, head coach Ouma will feel vindicated by his decision to phase out most of the older and experienced players in favor of new and vibrant young blood.The team not only delivered the first ever CECAFA title but also reached the last four of the African Olympic qualifiers, only losing to Zambia 3-2 in the penultimate round of qualification.Ouma retained only a few players from the ‘old’ squad, notably skipper Dorcas Shikobe as well as midfielders Corazone Aquino and Sheryl Angachi.Harambee Starlets head coach David Ouma gestures on the bench during the Tokyo 2020 Olympic qualification match against Malawi at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos on September 1, 2019. PHOTO/Timothy Olobulu“It was all about giving an equal chance to new blood. We did the same with the squad that took us to AWCON in 2016. We gave them time to grow as a team and as at now, I don’t regret my decision,” he noted.It has been a joyful ending to the year for Starlets as they not only won the CECAFA title but were nominated for the CAF Women’s team of the year award with Ouma being shortlisted in the coach of the year category.It is on these positives that Starlets hope to build on ahead of the AWCON qualifiers scheduled for next year.0Shares0000(Visited 25 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Double duty for Dogs’ Watson

first_imgIce Dogs captain Dan Watson finally received clearance to get back on the ice Tuesday. Watson, who underwent offseason shoulder surgery to reconnect a torn tendon, will skate this morning for the first time since the Ice Dogs were ousted from last season’s playoffs. While he will only be allowed in skating drills until his shoulder further heals, Watson will have plenty of other things to do. This season, Watson is doing double duty not only as a defenseman but also as assistant coach. Watson, a five-year pro, is a student-of-the-game type who many believe could someday make a quality coach. This is his chance to find out and learn about coaching and see if it is really what he wants to do when his playing days are over. “It’s better than just sitting around and doing nothing,” he said, half-joking. “I’ll be part of day-to-day decisions and I’ll get a chance to learn different aspects of the game.” ICE DOGS NOTES: The team will go through a regular training camp practice from 9:30-11 a.m. today at Glacial Gardens and then return for an intrasquad scrimmage from 6-7 p.m. With the talent level high and tough roster cuts looming early next week, Cameron believes the scrimmage will be a chance for some players to make it or break it. “What you are going to see is some guys stepping up and showing themselves,” he said. “Usually, games bring some separation and the decisions start to become more evident.” The next chance players have to show their worth is Friday in a preseason game against Las Vegas at Glacial Gardens. … Second-year defenseman Derick Martin, the CHL’s Defenseman of the Year runner-up last season with Lubbock, where he had nine goals and 25 assists in 57 games, made his camp debut Tuesday. “Derick is a smooth-skating, hard-hitting defenseman who had a tremendous rookie year last season,” Cameron said. “We’re excited to have him here.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The Ice Dogs haven’t had an assistant coach since part-timer Ken Moyseyev back in 2002-03. And coach Malcolm Cameron is grateful to have someone to aid him. But while Cameron is happy for the help on the bench … “Don’t get me wrong, I want him on the ice,” Cameron said. “I’ve never had help before, so this should be fun, having a guy to lean on. He will provide a second set of eyes and a second voice. … It will keep me refreshed.” center_img “I still enjoy playing and I’m not ready to give that up yet,” he said, “but this is a good chance for me to see if I really want to coach some day.” Watson had surgery to fix his long-ailing shoulder in mid-June and is expected to miss the first 12 games. He is scheduled to make his season debut Nov. 19, when the Ice Dogs travel to Bakersfield. last_img read more
