Damian Lillard Shows Support For Demar Derozan

Demar DeRozan with the aftermath of being blindsided by the trade that sent him to San Antonio. The five-time NBA All-Star was traded to the Spurs for Kawhi Leonard.

DeRozan always expressed how much he loved the organization and wanted to retire with the team. Instead, he was shipped off by the team he led to the playoffs for four years in a row. While some fans expect the players to just be mute on the matter since they are getting paid. [Sidenote: Dumb ASF]

Plenty of players around the league have shown their support to Rozan. Portland guard Damian Lillard posted an image of him Demar with the caption “It’s a dirty game”.

Other players around the league were also shocked when the trade went down.

DeRozan spoke with ESPN during a sit-down interview to discuss his thoughts on the trade.

“I mean, when you say “them,” that’s kind of frustrating. Like, who is “them”? You put the blame on just me and Casey? Because obviously we are the only two who had to suffer from the loss that we had in the Cleveland series. But it’s only one team that we lost to in the postseason — and that team went to the [NBA] Finals every single year. With an opportunity approaching itself, my mindset and the rest of my teammates’ mindset was the only guy who was in the way of making that happen leaves. Now we got a great opportunity to do something that we haven’t been able to do. At the end of the day, I gave everything I had to that team. And it showed, it showed in the progress we made as a team and me as an individual. So when you put that out there saying “gave them chances” and “I have to do something” … it’s B.S. to me.”

The Miami Hurricanes Will Debut New Environmental Uniforms For LSU Season Opener

Published

on

Last year the Miami Hurricanes brought the swag back to college football with the Turnover Chain. Now it seems that school is ready to make an impact outside of the football with their new uniforms.

The U will debut the first-ever uniforms made with repurposed and upcycled materials. Creating a unique look for the Canes, the Miami x Parley A1 uniform features “The U’s” home jersey orange colorway that is accompanied by accents that are an ode to the cause to end plastic pollution of the oceans. The jersey sleeve caps and the stripes white pants feature a wave print that fuses Miami’s signature dark green with the EQT green colorway that adidas x Parley has become synonymous with.

“Our players and staff are excited to wear the new Adidas Parley jerseys and gear for our season opener. We’re also excited that Adidas and Parley are teaming up with UM to help promote sustainability around the world,” head football coach Mark Richt said. “Community service has always been an integral part of our football program, and this partnership with Adidas and Parley helps us continue those efforts.”

Starting August 27, the Miami x Parley A1 uniforms will be auctioned off with the proceeds going to the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science to launch a fund for educational research.

The Hurricanes will wear the uniforms for their season opener against Louisiana State University at the 2018 AdvoCare Classic at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on Sept. 2.

Curry was on the Bill Simmons podcast recently and spoke about his intentions to stay with his championship team.

“I love the Bay Area, man,” he said. “The only reason I go home now is if my sister’s getting married or to go play the Hornets for that one game, so I haven’t really been back much. I haven’t put my mind there.”

Curry, a five-time All-Star, averaged 26.4 points and 6.1 assists in 51 games for the Warriors in 2017-18. He signed a five-year, $201 million contract extension with Golden State in July 2017.

Klay is going into his contract year and spoke about doing whatever he could to keep the band together.

“Absolutely,” he said. “Playing for one team your whole career is definitely special. Only so many guys have done it in professional sports, so it’ll be a goal of mine. Hopefully it all works out.” Thompson continued, “It’s so far away,” Thompson said of his pending free agency. “Anything I can do to stay with the Warriors is first and foremost. God willing, it happens. If not, I don’t even think about that.”
