LeBron James unafraid to ask questions on the first day of Lakers training camp

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersThe chief difference from last year’s Lakers training camp just might be a willingness to talk. Compared to last year’s younger squad, which was relatively meek in such situations, this roster churns with chatter: players asking questions, veterans mentoring the youth, assistant coaches pushing everyone. That’s the soundtrack everyone wants to hear.Everyone is involved, but it helps that James sets the tone as he adapts to a new team for the first time in four years. Tuesday morning was an all-defense session, during which the newcomers had to learn the Lakers’ terminology.James said he’s had to pace himself as he gets started.“I’m not a very patient guy, but I understand that I have to be patient right now,” he said. “I got to be patient with myself too, because this is a new start for me. This is my first year here. This is my first year in the new system. I know how to play the game of basketball, but this is all new to me too.”There’s been a cursory eye cast on the relationship between James, an intelligent and strong-willed player, and Walton, the third-year coach and how they’ll get along. James said he’s been working well with Walton so far – and that’s all he can really say after the first day of training camp. BALL STILL SIDELINEDDespite Lonzo Ball’s declaration at the start of media day that he was “100 percent” cleared to participate, 100 percent might have different meanings to different people in the organization.Ball sat out Tuesday morning’s practice, out of concerns he’s not ready for contact, according to Walton. Ball was slated to practice Tuesday evening for offensive drills. He left the door for Ball to return as early as Wednesday to full participation.Sign up for Home Turf and get exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily. Subscribe here.“When he practices tonight, it’s non-contact, but we have a lot of running,” Walton said. “So we’ll see how he feels tomorrow. As long as he feels fine, he’ll take part in practice tomorrow and that will be contact, and we’ll see how he feels from that the next day and kind of keep building off that.”The Lakers have been cautious with Ball since his March injury that led to knee surgery this summer. While several teammates talked up Ball’s physical maturation this offseason, he’s yet to participate in full-contact five-on-five work, even in summer pick-up games. The Lakers have said it’s been in the interest of getting him adjusted to full contact and tempo.THREE-POINT PRIDEWhile some of the veterans, particularly Rajon Rondo, hoped for a quick scrimmage to end practice, the Lakers instead opted for a 3-point shooting contest. It had a surprising result: A team of Rondo, Michael Beasley, JaVale McGee and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope beat James’ team of Kyle Kuzma, Brandon Ingram and Lance Stephenson.

The first query came from LeBron James, who wanted to know if the hand he was using in the drill was the correct one.Coach Luke Walton admired the attention to detail – and the fact that he piped up quickly.“It gets answered and now we have done a better job of learning it as a group,” he said. “Just little things like that you see right away having vets on the team.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img “Give me some time,” James quipped after a reporter asked him about chemistry with Walton. “It’s only two hours. Give me some time, please.” For a team now in two-a-days (with an offense and conditioning session scheduled for Tuesday nights), a little fun was welcomed.“We were just having fun with a game,” Rondo said. “Just get the competitive juices going at the end since we didn’t get the scrimmage, we did it as far as competition and shooting.”last_img read more

St. Antony, Moi Girls Nangili clinch Copa titles

first_img0Shares0000St. Antony’s Boys Kitale goalkeeper Issa Emuria is carried shoulder high by teammates and fans after saving three penalties during the Copa Coacacola National final against St. Peters Mumias on July 28, 2018.ELDORET, Kenya, Jul 28- St. Antony’s Boys goalkeeper Issa Emuria was the hero of the side saving three penalties as the Kitale based team clinched the 2018 Copa Cocacola National Secondary School Games title with a 3-1 post-match penalties win over St. Peters Boys Mumias at the Hill School in Eldoret on Saturday.St. Antony reached the final last year and lost 1-0 to Kakamega High School and gifted themselves with a well worked win, one that would have been wrapped up in regulation and extra time had they been more efficient in scoring. Head coach George Owoko was pleased with the result especially with his Under-19s side having failed to reach the final. This is his third Copa title as a coach having won in 2010 and 2011 with Ambira High School.“I had hoped to clinch a double but that is how football is sometimes. The Under-16 boys had made us proud by winning this title and it is also a good day because we have won bronze with the Under-19s. We played really well and dominated the game which makes me very happy,” Owoko told Capital Sport after the game.On penalties, Emuria proved to be the genius stopping the first two kicks taken by captain Felix Otieno and James Wafula, using his height to his advantage.St. Antony’s Boys Kitale midfielder Daniel Odhiambo takes on St. Peters Mumias Ainea during the Copa Coacacola National final on July 28, 2018 at the Hill School in EldoretThe Solidarity Boys were in firm control Christopher Raila and Leon David scoring sublime efforts to give the side a 2-0 advantage. However, Woodvine Okoth saw his penalty saved and on the return end, Brian Mbithi scored to reduce the deficit to 2-1.However, Rashid Issa atoned for his mate’s miss scoring St. Antony’s fourth kick with his keeper Emuria putting the game to bed saving from Salim Badi.In regulation time, St. Antony, fan favorites with their free flowing football had the better chances.However, it was St. Peters who posed the first threat in the 17th team with Marcus Ochola having an effort come off the bar after making the most of a defensive blip.Red hot Kennedy Mwendwa had an effort for St. Antony in the 26th minute when his shot from the right bounced across the face of goal with Shamun Ansar failing to arrive at the back post in time to tap it home.In the second half, Shamun had the best chance of the game when Okoth’s shot from the right fell on his path but his spectacular shot on the volley attracted an equally good save from the St. Peters keeper.Moi Girls Nangili midfielder Fridah Chepchumba in action against Wiyeta players during the Copa Coacacola National final on July 28, 2018 at the Hill School in EldoretEarlier on, debutants Moi Girls Nangili from Western won the girls’ title after outsmarting last year’s finalists Wiyeta Girls 2-0 with goals from Noelle Oruko and Ivy Chepkurui handing them the title.Oruko broke the deadlock in the 28th minute when Oruko volleyed the ball home after racing onto the ball which was planted behind the defense.In the second half, Wiyeta had a chance to draw level through Jecinta Karemana whose shot from range fizzled through the goalkeeper’s legs, but she managed to react quickly to pick up before it crossed the line.Chepkurui put the cherry on the cake in sublime fashion 15 minutes after the restart with a wonderful goal taken from the halfway line, her shot catching the Wiyeta keeper off guard.Four minutes later, Nangili thought they had the third goal to seal the deal but Felistas Atieno’s goal was ruled out for offside after some good interchange of passes.Defending champions Olympic finished third after beating Waa Girls from Coast by a solitary goal.0Shares0000(Visited 9 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
