Column: Let’s ignore Drake for the rest of the NBA Finals

Inquirer Breaking News - Sat, 06/01/2019 - 18:02
Obnoxious sideline celebrities are as much a part of the NBA as slam dunks and getting away with an extra step or two. From Jack Nicholson to Spike Lee to Jimmy Buffett, we've grown accustomed to boorish, entitled superstars doing their best to make themselves part of the game. Welcome to the club, Drake. The Toronto rapper-slash-superfan has gotten as much air time as anyone on the court with his antics during the playoffs. He mocked Philadelphia's Joel Embiid. He rubbed the shoulders of Raptors coach Nick Nurse during a game. And, after the opener of the NBA Finals, he exchanged some heated words with Golden State's Draymond Green. Here's an idea: Let's ignore Drake for...

Dangerous game: Anthony Joshua fights Andy Ruiz Jr, with others on his mind

Inquirer Breaking News - Sat, 06/01/2019 - 17:55
NEW YORK --- In front of Anthony Joshua for his U.S. debut will be Andy Ruiz Jr. On Joshua's mind will be more than the defense of his four heavyweight titles Saturday night. As honest as he is undefeated, Joshua says the likes of Tyson Fury, Deontay Wilder and a few other potential opponents aren't far from his thoughts. It's a dangerous game to be playing if his total focus isn't on the upcoming opponent at Madison Square Garden, even if Ruiz is a 30-1 underdog. "I think I can beat Ruiz," Joshua said. "If Wilder is not available, I want Fury," he said. "I said I want to meet Wilder, chat with him, and the next day he announces a fight with no date or venue attached to i...

Pascal Siakam comes from small settings to star on NBA’s big stage

Inquirer Breaking News - Sat, 06/01/2019 - 17:14
TORONTO --- The path to the best NBA Finals debut in seven years began in Cameroon and has stretched from New Mexico to the suburbs of Toronto. Pascal Siakam had to emerge from some small settings before he could reach the big time. That made Siakam's 32-point performance in Game 1 even more impressive. The players who often stand out this time of year are the can't-miss prospects who seemed destined for greatness from the time they were kids. Siakam hadn't even started playing basketball by then. But there he was Thursday night, shooting 14 of 17 from the field to spark Toronto's 118-109 victory over Golden State. "I've never seen anything like that before," Raptors c...

Inquirer Breaking News - Sat, 06/01/2019 - 15:56
TORONTO --- Steve Kerr has seen a little of almost everything during his wildly successful five-year run as coach of the Golden State Warriors. This, however, is something new. For the first time, Kerr and the Warriors are staring at a 1-0 deficit in the NBA Finals. They've trailed in series before, faced plenty of adverse moments along the way, but this is the newest challenge for a franchise trying to join the short list of clubs that have won three consecutive championships. "The experience helps," Kerr said Friday, a day after the Toronto Raptors struck first. "Winning multiple championships helps because you have seen it all.
