Limited Mens Marcus Sherels Jersey The Raiders got two more draft picks under contract, including one who represented a chances some teams weren’t willing to take.
Authentic Michael Thomas Jersey The team announced the signings of fifth-round draft defensive tackle Maurice Hurst and seventh-round wide receiver Marcell Ateman.
Hurst was considered a first-round talent, but slid for reasons including an irregular heartbeat. He’s vowed to use the snub as motivation, as players picked places other than first overall tend to do.
The Rockets continued their well-worn strategy in this series of manipulating the Golden State defense in an effort to draw Curry in the Warriors’ switching scheme. Curry stood up to the pressure reasonably well, as the Rockets weren’t terribly efficient on those possessions, converting 7 of 14 shots when Curry was the primary defender, with one turnover and zero trips to the line.
Earlier in the series, when he couldn’t find the bottom of the basket, Curry was encouraged by Steve Kerr. The Warriors coach told him the floodgates would open in this series. In Game 3, the prophecy came true, as the waters of the San Francisco Bay found their way into Oracle Arena.
Capitals coach Barry Trotz reiterated that players selected in the expansion draft were not cast-offs in the traditional sense.
They got a lot of players from other hockey teams that we didn’t want to lose, he said. I know they always say we didn’t want those players. Well, we all did. The rules were the rules. They did a great job.
Trotz was the head coach of the Nashville Predators when they joined the Brian Hartline Jersey league in 1998 with less favorable draft rules. But he sees similarities between how his team bonded and how the Knights jelled — with one significant difference.
I’ve been a part of that process. There’s nothing tighter than that first-year group. There’s no preconceived notion. There’s no leadership in place. Nobody knows where to live. It’s galvanizing. Unfortunately, there was also tragedy in Vegas, which galvanized them even more, Trotz said in reference to the mass shooting on Oct. 1, 2017, when a gunman opened fire on a crowd on the Las Vegas Strip, leaving 58 people dead and 851 injured. The Golden Knights played their first home game 10 days later.
