His current deal has no NBA outs, so the summer of 2017 is the earliest that Teodosic would be a free agent.Yet there figures to be strong NBA interest in the 29-year-old when he does become available again after Teodosic has shown yet again in these Olympics that he is as good as any player not currently playing in the NBA.As good a player, as good a guard, as there is in Europe, Team USA coach Miike Krzyzewski said. Joe Montana Jersey. International basketball expert David Pick of Israel first reported Memphis attempts to sign Teodosic earlier Monday.Asked last week by ESPN if he still has NBA aspirations, Teodosic was non-committal, saying thats not up to me and, when pressed, adding that it was his goal a long time ago.But there is a belief in league circles that Teodosic will indeed explore his NBA options next summer.After leading Serbia to the final of the 2014 FIBA World Cup in Spain, Teodosic emerged as a favorite of Krzyzewski, who has mentioned the crafty guards name numerous times since the Americans arrived in Rio.I love him, Krzyzewski said after Serbia gave Team USA an almighty scare Friday night before ultimately succumbing to a 94-91 defeat.

LONDON -- Three-time Tour de France winner Chris Froome says the anti-doping system is open to abuse by letting athletes take banned substances as medication. Travis Hamonic Jersey .Froome, whose two officially approved therapeutic use exemptions in his career were revealed by hackers this month, writes on Twitter I know that I have to not only abide by the rules but go above and beyond that to set a good example both morally and ethically.Bradley Wiggins, another British Tour de France winner, has been criticized over TUEs. Hackers leaked that Wiggins got intramuscular injections of a strong corticosteroid days before three big races, including the 2012 Tour.When Wiggins won the 2012 Tour, Froome was runner-up. Casey Cizikas Jersey . -- Stanfords Kevin Danser knelt on one knee and hardly moved on the sideline as Michigan State celebrated its Rose Bowl victory and his Cardinal teammates made their way to the locker room. Clark Gillies Islanders Jersey . But what about the officials? Every sport has officials and they also have stories about hard work and sacrifice but their accomplishments are seldom recognized by anyone outside their inner circle. http://www.hockeyislandersstore.us/Ryan-Strome-Jersey/ . -- The Missouri Tigers might not have a roster full of superstars. This week I had a thoroughly enjoyable dinner and reunion in Sydney with South Australias oldest living Test player, Gavin The Ox Stevens. Despite his physical presence, as highlighted by the nickname, Stevens is lucky to have survived this long, as he became extremely ill on Australias 1959-60 tour of Pakistan and India and never played another first-class game.Adding to the enjoyment of the evening, Stevens was joined by his former opening partner at Glenelg and South Australia, Ron Haddrick. Stevens was in Sydney to enjoy a performance of My Fair Lady and coincidentally Haddrick, one of Australias finest actors, played the part of Alfred Doolittle in his youth. Haddrick probably enjoys the distinction of being the only person to have played at the picturesque Adelaide Oval and the iconic Royal Shakespeare Theatre.Prior to our dinner, I came across an old photo (above), dated October 28, 1952. There in black and white on the new Glenelg Oval scoreboard were the names Haddrick, Stevens and Chappell. The Chappell was my father, Martin, and as I gazed at the photo I was struck by the talent in that club side. There were six Sheffield Shield players and, apart from Stevens, opening bowler Geff Noblet also played Test cricket.Its amazing how success in a region seems to have a flow-on effect. Operating the scoreboard that day in 1952 was 13-year-old Don Rice, who went on to play baseball for South Australia and Australia. Alongside him was 12-year-old Bob Touhy, who became a successful professional golfer and respected tournament director. There was also a nine-year-old (obviously the most expendable), sent up the ladder to change the name of the outgoing batsman, who later played baseball alongside Rice and captained Australia in cricket on 30 occasions.Having been regaled with stories by Sunil Gavaskar and Ravi Shastri about how they were encouraged by senior players in their youth, Im aware this is not a situation unique to Australia. Gavaskar continued the trend by gifting a pair of his ppads to encourage a young Sachin Tendulkar, so its not hard to understand why Mumbai gained and retained a reputation for producing highly competitive cricketers. Dennis Seidenberg Jersey. On further reflection I pondered the effect of what today would be called mentoring but was simply good old common courtesy back in 1952 on sports-mad young kids.In addition to Martins part in siring three boys who all played Test cricket, he shaped both our attitude and aptitude for sport. However, he wasnt alone, as many of the names on that scoreboard helped and encouraged a number of kids in the Glenelg district. At that time there was also a ten-year-old running around the club named David Sincock, who went on to be a prodigious spinner of the ball for both South Australia and Australia.At the regular Sunday Glenelg club picnics, the adults would organise a game of cricket with the kids before they got on with the serious business of tapping the keg and conducting a beer-sculling competition. To be not only recognised by these famous names in the district but also encouraged was a big boost to kids who had their own dreams of playing at Adelaide Oval.I have fond memories of time spent in the dressing room with these players I looked up to, and it had a positive effect on my development. In addition to being good sportsmen, many of them prospered later in life.In their midst were some great characters. I loved to hear tales of the end-of-season club trips. How Haddrick clambered onto the bar of a country pub to recite Shakespeare and then, in the interests of providing light and shade, club stalwart Howard Sam Starling followed with his version of The Farting Contest.Our reunion in Sydney was a chance to reflect on my good fortune in growing up surrounded by the strong smell of success. Id love to say it made two old guys very happy but Id be lying; it gave great joy to three old men.

NEW YORK -- The Ogwumike sisters are back together again. Milan Lucic Bruins Jersey .Nneka and Chiney are now part of the WNBA players union executive council. Nneka Ogwumike is the new president and her younger sister is a vice president. They played together at Stanford for two years.Im thrilled to team up with my sister again, this time representing the best interests of the best womens basketball players in the world, both on and off the court, said Chiney Ogwumike in a text message to The Associated Press. Our league is a sisterhood, and our goal is to continue to expand our unique platform from the locker room to the greater community.Nneka Ogwumike ran unopposed for the position and will hold it for three years. She was vice president for the previous two years and succeeds Tamika Catchings, who was president since 2004 before retiring from the league at the end of this past season.I am looking forward to serving as Executive Committee President and having a voice that will be heard, while representing, collaborating with, and leading our players union, said the WNBA MVP, who will try and lead Los Angeles to its first title since 2002 when the Sparks face Minnesota in Game 5 on Thursday.The sisters are joined on the executive committee by Layshia Clarendon (first vice president), Monique Currie (vice president) and Monica Wright (secretary-treasurer). All were elected based on voting that occurred on Oct. 14.Former committee members Swin Cash and Jayne Appel Marinelli also retired this past year, opening up three spots on the board.I would like to thank Tamika Catchings, Swin Cash, Jayne Appel Marinelli and Tanisha Wright for their service on our Executive Committee, said WNBAPA director of operations Terri Jackson. Their contributions to the WNBPA have been instrumental in our growth and we will be forever grateful.The WNBA and the union agreed to a new eight-year CBA in 2014. The agreement does allow for an opt out after the 2019 season.I have faith that the union is in good hands, Cash said last month. Were only a phone call away if needed. Patrice Bergeron Bruins Jersey .J. -- Pitcher Carl Pavano is retiring after 14 major league seasons. Derek Sanderson Jersey . As he recorded his 23rd and 24th points of the evening, a segment of the sellout Air Canada Centre crowd expressed their appreciation for the Raptors point guard with a smattering of MVP chants. http://www.authenticbruinsnhlhockey.com/jake-debrusk-jersey/ . -- The St. Johns IceCaps weathered a wild first period with the help of goaltender Jussi Olkinuora, before finding offensive inroads in the second. ATHENS, Ga. -- Georgias upset of then-No. 8 Auburn gave fans and recruits a much-needed glimpse of where first-year coach Kirby Smart hopes to take the program.It also made some upperclassmen wish they could stick around for that future.As he relished Saturdays win with teammate Chuks Amaechi, junior linebacker Lorenzo Carter said he wished he could be a recruit who was starting his career under Smart.We were walking to my car and we were just talking about how ... I wish I were a recruit for this game, Carter said Monday. It was an amazing atmosphere. It just showed the path for the University of Georgia and the program, where Kirby wants to take us.The 13-7 win over Auburn gave Smart the signature game he needed from his otherwise lackluster debut season. It also kept alive the chance for a strong finish for Georgia (6-4, 4-4 Southeastern Conference), which will look for its third straight win when it plays Louisiana-Lafayette on Saturday.Smart was animated in his jubilant postgame celebration, giving high-fives and hugs to players and reaching up to slap hands with fans as he exited the field. He was back in his restrained game-week mode on Monday.I certainly felt there was good energy in the building, good energy after the game, whether it be in the locker room or with those guys, Smart said, adding his time with recruits was certainly positive even though none immediately promised to sign with Georgia.Senior defensive back Maurice Smith, who returned an interception for Georgias only touchdown, said it was important for current and future players to see the Bulldogs show they can beat a top 10 team.I think it will be a great accommplishment and also a confidence-builder for the team and the coaching staff, just to let us know were still able to contend and compete with the best, Smith said. Patrice Bergeron Jersey. .Georgia has back-to-back wins over Kentucky and Auburn after losing four of five games, including a devastating home loss to Vanderbilt.Weve shown a lot of resiliency and also just a lot of strength, going through the challenges that weve faced, injuries and also being down in games, Smith said. We have showed a lot of perseverance.Smith is a graduate transfer from Alabama, where Smart was the defensive coordinator. He said he has been surprised to see Smart more relaxed despite having more responsibility.I think hes a lot more loose right now, more free, Smith said. Hes the head coach, so you would think that would give more pressure to him, but I think he has taken it the best way he can. Hes showing that as a head coach he really enjoys his job and Im very happy for him.Game notes Smart said he hopes OG Isaiah Wynn, who left the game with a sprained knee, and LB Natrez Patrick, who was held out with a shoulder injury, can return this week. Another starter, DT DaQuan Hawkins-Muckle (ankle) also may return this week. ... Georgia disclosed before Saturdays game that punter Marshall Long suffered a season-ending knee injury in practice, leaving Brice Ramsey as the starter. Ramsey also is the third-string quarterback. Long is the only Georgia player to suffer a season-ending injury.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '

Tyler Johnson Jersey .FIFA says its monitoring committee chairman, Tokyo Sexwale of South Africa, held separate talks in Jerusalem and Ramallah on Monday and Tuesday.FIFA says President Gianni Infantino and secretary general Fatma Samoura have both committed to visiting the region at the appropriate time in the near future.Palestinian soccer leaders want Israel expelled from FIFA over security restrictions on players and opposing teams moving in and out of its territories, plus Israel allowing clubs from settlements to play in its competitions.Sexwale, a former FIFA presidential candidate, says he will brief the Infantino-chaired council at a Jan. 9-10 meeting in Zurich. Mitchell Stephens Jersey .C. at the helm of the top team in the Eastern Conference. His tenure as the GM in Vancouver was all too brief. Though he led the Canucks to what was then a franchise record-shattering campaign in just his second season, Nonis was gone and replaced one year later. Brett Howden Jersey . The defending champion beat Gael Monfils of France 7-6 (6), 6-3, while second-seeded Andy Murray of Britain dispatched Edouard Roger-Vasselin, also of France, 6-3, 6-3. Making his first appearance since injuring his wrist a month ago, Del Potro had difficulty with his service games in the first set. http://www.lightninghockeystore.us/Jt-Brown-Jersey/ . But the quarterback hopes to stay involved in football after officially calling it quits Tuesday. "Id love to look at those opportunities as they arise," Pierce said in an interview from his Winnipeg eatery. MIAMI -- Happy new NBA season.It starts Tuesday night in Cleveland, where the champion Cavaliers will raise a banner and the visiting New York Knicks will see if Derrick Rose can help them start rising back to the upper echelon of the league.Also this week: Dwyane Wade makes his official debut in Chicago after 13 seasons in Miami, life after the retirements of Kobe Bryant, Kevin Garnett and Tim Duncan begins, and Golden State takes a team that won a record 73 games last season -- plus led Cleveland 3-1 in the NBA Finals before falling -- and adds Kevin Durant to the mix.So without further ado, to start off our weekly look at the NBA, three AP basketball writers offer up their predictions for the coming season:CHAMPIONJon Krawczynski : Golden State. I wish I had more guts, but there is just too much firepower there.Brian Mahoney : Golden State. Cant make a much better case for anyone else.Tim Reynolds : Cleveland.

NRL star Jason Taumalolo and four other North Queensland players deserve nothing more than a kick in the backside for allegedly throwing eggs at cars in Townsville, according to federal independent MP Bob Katter. Jeoffrey Pagan Texans Jersey .So says the man who claims to have done the same thing to The Beatles when they toured Australia more than 50 years ago.Five players, aged 18-25, have been charged with wilful damage and are due to face court next month over the late Wednesday night incident.Katter said egging was a great Australian pastime and called for the charges to be dropped.In my younger days. I was a naughty boy. We threw eggs at The Beatles, he told reporters on Friday.I just hate young people being picked on all the time for being stupid and irresponsible.

Tony Stewart vowed to enjoy his final Sprint Cup season, and running well over the last eight races has helped. Mike Webster Steelers Jersey .But Stewart also found, and not to his surprise, what Jeff Gordon realized during his final full season a year ago: NASCAR Sprint Cup racing is just too intense and too demanding to have fun throughout the experience.Its work now and retirement when its over. Stewart will have to thrive and revel in the pressure of Sprint Cup racing for 14 more weeks before he hangs up his Sprint Cup driver suit.It is a tradeoff, says the three-time Sprint Cup champion. Its one of the most competitive forms of motorsports in the world right now, and because it is, is why its not necessarily fun all the time.Its work and its a lot of stress and its a lot of hours. I spend more time looking at data than I ever have.At least the work appears be paying off. Stewart has four top-5 finishes in his last five races and six top-10 finishes in his last eight. His last two events, fifth-place runs at Pocono and Watkins Glen, were races where it could easily be argued he had more of a 10th-place car than a fifth-place car, but worked strategically to get the higher finish.It also has some looking at Stewart as the guy who won the 2011 Sprint Cup title with an incredible Chase, where he won five of the final 10 races.Im not sure were ready to rip off five wins in 10 races, but the confidence that we have and the demeanor of everybody on the team is definitely the same right now [as in 2011], Stewart said.Stewart hasnt led enough laps yet to be considered a full-bore championship contender. He led 22 laps at Sonoma, but those laps and one lap at Daytona are all he has led in the last 11 races. Thats not necessarily championship-caliber performance, but it is a performance that would keep a driver in the championship hunt likely until at least the third round.I still think were a little bit short of where we need to be, Stewart said prior to the race at Watkins Glen last week. Were gaining on it. We have got to get to where [teammate] Kevin [Harvick] is to have a shot at it. ... Whether we are going to be a championship contender or not, I want to be running good each week.Weve got that on our side. Everybody is relaxed and everybody is having fun. Thats what I want this last year.Stewart hasnt really thought about the Chase yet for two reasons -- four races still remain (starting with the Aug. 20 race at Bristol), and he doesnt see the use of filling his mind with strategy for his first appearance in an elimination Chase.[The format] doesnt matter - if you go out there and win races, the rest of it takes care of itself -- the same as it did 18 years ago when I came into this series, Stewart said.In other words, Stewart will gear up toward his last Chase the same way he has in the past -- he will focus on getting the best finish possible and continue to do things his way. That will include going off to races at dirt tracks and other facilities holding events where his sprint-car teams or the sprint-car series he owns are competing.Stewart points to finishing second at New Hampshire last month after returning from Eldora Speedway in the wee hours of the morning as a sign he can continue the schedule that leaves crew chief Mike Bugarewicz to handle figuring out the setup and Stewart available by text while having fun somewhere else.Being able to do go do those things, if we were having a bad weekend, it got my mind off it, it helped keep me level, Stewart said. Instead of sitting in the motorhome, and sitting there trying to get a Ouija board out and trying to figure out the magic setup was for the next day, I would go somewhere else and get the mind off of it.The best thing I can do is go keep myself busy. When I can do that, it seems to work better for me. ... Its not the sleep I need. Its the clear mind I need. I can stay up like a rockstar still and Im not sure the rest of these kids can.Keeping that clear mind also requires Stewart to not focus on his last race at the tracks the remainder of the season. He knows he will return at least as an owner, so its not like he wont drive through the tunnel in the future.I try to downplay it in my mind, Stewart said. I want to focus on what Im doing for the weekend. The nostalgia stuff, you think about it after the event is over.After Indy [last month], I thought about what Indy meant. I didnt think about it all weekend. I thought about what I could do to win the race. You stick to your guns with what you do. You stay in race mode. When the weekend is over and the race mode is over, then you think about all the other things.Like what he needs to do to prepare for the Chase...[Were] still just trying to find a little more speed, and we just keep building on what weve been building on up until this point -- I dont think were looking for big magic right now, Stewart said. Its just to keep the same progress going and keep going down that path and making it better and better.I sleep a lot better during the weekends. Theres been nights before the race that I felt like we were a 15th-place car and that we were going to struggle, and then we found a way to pull something out of it at the end. And thats what it takes. Mike Wagner Womens Jersey . -- Charlie Graham stopped 67 shots as the Belleville Bulls edged the visiting Guelph Storm 6-5 on Saturday in Ontario Hockey League action. Kevin Greene Steelers Jersey . PAUL, Minn. http://www.footballsteelerstore.us/Black-Friday-Jack-Ham-Jersey/ . I cant pinpoint a date, but I do remember a player from my youth. Brian Downing was with the Chicago White Sox at a time when I listened to every game I possibly could on the radio. That particular season the late great Harry Caray was calling the White Sox games.The St. Louis Blues have signed forward Derek Roy to a one-year contract. TSN Hockey analyst Aaron Ward reported earlier in the week that the deal is worth $4 million. The 30-year-old Roy split last season between Dallas and Vancouver, posting four goals and 18 assists in 30 games with the Stars, while reccording three goals and three assists in 12 games with the Canucks.
