#1 and public officials because of their commitment to keep the Bills in w von sakura698 18.09.2019 05:54

MIAMI - LeBron James has learned an important lesson during his journey from 19-year-old rookie to two-time NBA champion: Never talk back to the coach during a film session. Sheldon Rankins Womens Jersey . "Let him make his point, whether hes right or wrong, and you live with it and move on," James said. Especially when the coach has as much to show his players as Erik Spoelstra did to James and the Miami Heat on Wednesday. Miamis defence didnt offer much resistance early in Game 3 of the NBA Finals; the San Antonio Spurs played like they were on the court by themselves. San Antonio made 19 of its first 21 shots and shot a finals-record 75.8 per cent in the first half of a 111-92 victory. Just like last year, Game 3 was a blowout that left the Heat facing a 2-1 deficit. Miami came back to win the series, so nobody was overreacting to what happened Tuesday, especially since the Spurs themselves dont expect to shoot that way again. But the Heat have things to clean up before Game 4 on Thursday, or they risk going back to San Antonio facing the end of their title reign. "Youre always on edge in the post-season, but I dont want to be concerned at this point," James said. "For us, we have to make the adjustments." The Spurs had the same lead last year after a 113-77 victory in Game 3, a start-to-finish beating that was even more thorough than Tuesdays win. So they were taking no satisfaction in their position, and certainly not comparing it. "I dont think about last year at all at this point," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "I dont think about last year Game 3, Game 4, at all. This is a different animal and Im just concerned about the game tomorrow night." The bigger concerns belong to the Heat, whose defence was also sliced up by the Spurs in the fourth quarter of Game 1. So Spoelstra gathered his team to look at the painful tape of Tuesdays performance, which featured among its problems: —Chris Bosh getting only four shot attempts after scoring 18 points in Games 1 and 2. —James trying to do too much to rally the Heat and ending up with seven of their 20 turnovers. —Mario Chalmers missing all five shots and falling to 3 for 12 in the finals. "We did not play a good basketball game," Spoelstra said. "All of us have owned that. It doesnt matter ultimately how many you lose by or what the game is like. You have to learn from it, move on." Spoelstra said watching themselves get clobbered on tape was "painful" and "frustrating," but necessary. He wouldnt reveal what he told his players, but whatever it was, James wouldnt have argued. Thats a lesson he said he learned "quite a few years ago, when you realize that it wouldnt change anything." "You know, the coach is always right," James added. "Its like a teacher. Theyre always right, and thats fine. Thats fair. They make the rules and weve got to live by them." Spoelstras process suits the Heat, who have won 13 straight post-season games following a loss. They followed last years Game 3 no-show with a rout of their own to swing the series back in their favour, and are confident they can make corrections before Thursday. But the Spurs, who didnt think they played that well in the first two games, have shown that not even the respected Miami defence can stop them when they execute the way they did Tuesday. "We finally put a game together for not the full 48, but for as long as we could, where we did exactly what we planned to do and executed in that respect," Tim Duncan said, "and thats what were going to need again." No team has overcome a 3-1 deficit in the NBA Finals, and a victory Thursday would guarantee the Spurs two chances to win the series on their home floor, starting with Game 5 on Sunday. Dwyane Wade said the Heat arent thinking that far ahead. "Were an in-the-moment team," he said. "And right now in the moment is the day after a loss, getting better mentally, physically and then coming into tomorrow and playing the game of basketball here on our home floor and trying to win Game 4. That is all we focus on." Michael Thomas Youth Jersey . The 27-year-old forward has informed the Leafs that he will be unable to play in Monday nights home game against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

A prospective candidate could be identified by the end of the week. Four people familiar with discussions revealed that information to The Associated Press. They spoke on the condition of anonymity because the sale is being conducted privately. The other groups submitting bids were led by New York City real estate mogul Donald Trump, and a Toronto group led by rocker Jon Bon Jovi. The bids were submitted to Morgan Stanley, the banking firm overseeing the sale process on behalf of late owner Ralph Wilsons estate. Three of the people said the estate issued purchase agreements to at least four groups, and potentially five. The other groups identities are not known, and its unclear if they submitted bids. The purchase agreements are formal documents that are negotiated separately by each of the parties and Proskauer Rose, the legal firm representing the estate. The agreements are binding documents that outline the terms and conditions of the sale. Once those agreements were completed over the past week, the only outstanding question left was for each group to determine its bid price. The franchise was last valued by Forbes to be worth $935 million. But the sale price is expected to exceed $1 billion because NFL franchises rarely go on the block. The Bills are on the market after Wilson, the Hall of Fame inductee and franchise founder, died in March. The Cleveland Browns were sold for close to $1.05 billion two years ago. The Miami Dolphins sold for an NFL-record $1.1 billion in 2009, but their deal also included their stadium. The timing of thee sale process remains on track for the team to have a new owner before the end of the year -- and potentially by next month. Taysom Hill Saints Jersey. Once identified, the prospective owner would be presented to members of the NFL Finance Committee, which is scheduled to meet next week. The candidate must also go through an extensive background check conducted by an NFL-contracted security firm. The final step would be approval from three-quarters of the leagues 31 other owners, which could come at league meetings next month. After that, NFL owners are next scheduled to meet in December. The Pegulas remain the front runners. They have a net worth of more than $3.5 billion, and have the support of local business leaders and public officials because of their commitment to keep the Bills in western New York. U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer has stayed closely involved with the sale process to ensure the Bills stay in New York. Last week, Schumer expressed his support of Pegula in conversations with at least 10 NFL owners. During a stop in Buffalo on Monday, Schumer said he had conversations regarding the sale process with both Terry Pegula and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell earlier in the day. "We talked about the lay of the land. Im not going to get into details," Schumer said. "But I believe that (Pegula) is enthusiastic about owning and keeping the Bills in Buffalo for generations." Under the lease agreement reached in December 2012 with New York State and Erie County, the Bills are essentially locked in to playing at Ralph Wilson Stadium through the end of the 2019 season. There is a one-time out clause that would allow the team to break the agreement for just under $28.4 million in 2020. ' ' '
