Charles Oakley accepts 1-year ban from MSG as criminal charges dismissed

Charles Oakley won’t face charges in his long-running dispute with Knicks owner James Dolan, but he will be banned from Madison Square Garden for a year under terms of a deal agreed to Friday.

Despite saying he would fight the charges filed against him in the wake of a scuffle with arena security during a Feb. 8 Knicks game at the Garden, Oakley accepted a deal that will see all charges dismissed and excised from his record if there are no further incidents for six months.

Fultz and Ball are the highest-rated rookies to enter the NBA 2K series since 2010. That year, John Wall was drafted No. 1 by the Wizards and received an Overall rating of 81 in NBA 2K11. Even the likes of Anthony Davis and Karl-Anthony Towns began with ratings below 80 since then.

With a rating of 80, the two guards land in a range that considers them to be similar to many established players in the league. There are only 16 point guards rated above 80, so they land right in the middle of the pack among starters.

NBA 2K18 will let you play through a story as a general manager, joining its other story-based mode which is centered on being a player. The game will release on Sept. 15 to those who pre-order. Shaquille O’Neal is featured on the two pricey special editions of the game, which will be sold for $150 and $100, and Kyrie Irving is on the cover of the standard edition.

There’s a fine line to toe when it comes to actually implementing rules on player rest. Used as a means to avoid fatigue and limit injuries, putting the health of the players first is a tricky issue to try to regulate. With a new collective bargaining agreement ratified in December, any rule changed would have to be litigated under the current CBA. It would also likely involve each side come to some sort of compromise.

LeBron James blindsided by Kyrie Irving request that Cavs trade him, report says

Cavs guard Kyrie Irving made an interesting comment at a Sports Illustrated event this week calling the Cavs’ offseason peculiar. You know what would have made their offseason even more peculiar? Trading Kyrie Irving.

According to, Irving asked the Cavs last week to trade him. One of his preferred destinations is the San Antonio Spurs.

Altman steps into a proverbial minefield in the Cavs front office. Not only are expectations high, coming off three straight NBA Finals appearances and a world championship in 2016, but he’s got numerous looming personnel situations. The biggest, of course, is the potential free agency of LeBron James in 2018.

To make matters more difficult, news broke last Friday that point guard Kyrie Irving is seeking a trade. The Cavs have no cap flexibility, as they’ve tied up several role players to lucrative long-term deals.

Altman originally joined the Cavaliers as pro personnel manager in 2012 and the Cavs promoted him to director of pro player personnel in September 2013. He became assistant GM prior to last season.

The Cavs said other notable front offices moves are expected soon.

The past month or so has allowed the opportunity for several other talented and hard-working individuals on the basketball side of our business to demonstrate their deep knowledge and capability, Gilbert said. We are looking forward to announcing additional restructuring involving these remarkable executives in the very near future.

LeBron James denies being ‘eager’ to see Kyrie Irving traded: ‘Get another source’

LeBron James is ready to clear the airwell, sort of.

There has been plenty of drama surrounding the Cavs and their biggest star since news broke that Kyrie Irving requested a trade out of Cleveland. Irving’s camp reportedly believes James leaked the request, and the relationship between the Cavs and Irving has reached the point where a trade feels almost inevitable. But James is breaking his silence to set the record straight on a few issues.

What you tend to find is when clubs buy a player for large amounts or smallthey will stagger these payments over a course of a contract, Wilson said, via BBC Sport.

Let’s assume PSG pay 200 million for Neymar and he signs a 10-year contractthey will pay 20 million per year to Barcelona. Of course, the selling club has to agree to that length of time.

You expect there to be a decent upfront payment though. When Cristiano Ronaldo signed for Real Madrid from Manchester United for 80m in 2009, the English club demanded the fee was paid in full before it was allowed to happen.

Regarding Neymar, I think you’ll probably see a substantial initial paymentlet’s say 100 millionand a couple of payments afterwards to make the balance.

So, now that it’s established there is a way for both players to move, it boils down to whether or not the two players really want the switch, and if the teams they currently play for are willing to pull the trigger.
