Wholesale Authentic NFL Stitched Black San Antonio Spurs Jerseys China 2017

SAN ANTONIO — Tony Parker ran through embraces and affectionate rubs on the head from teammates pregame like he was scrambling over the tops of screens, but the veteran guard held back the tears Monday for the San Antonio Spurs’ 115-108 win over the Dallas Mavericks.

“No, it was just a lot of emotion, but almost, almost,” Parker said when asked if he shed a tear. “I’m always amazed by all the love from Spurs fans. It’s hard to describe the feeling, but I was just very excited and just wanted to thank everybody for all the support. The city of San Antonio has been amazing, all the fans, the Spurs organization. It was just a great journey, just a great game tonight.”

Parker made his season debut Monday after nearly seven months of inactivity, having rupturing his left quadriceps tendon May 3 during the Western Conference semifinals against the Houston Rockets. Parker hadn’t played in 208 days before chipping in six points and four assists with no turnovers against Dallas on Monday.

Popovich ejected for 2nd time this month
Spurs coach Gregg Popovich was issued technical fouls from two different officials before he was finally ejected from San Antonio’s matchup against the Mavericks.

Pop disputes Parker’s timeline for Kawhi return
Gregg Popovich said he hopes to get Kawhi Leonard back “shortly” but disputed Tony Parker’s timeline of two to three weeks for when Leonard would return from his quad injury.
On the night Parker finally made his 2017-18 debut, coach Gregg Popovich was ejected after receiving his third and fourth technical fouls of the season in the second quarter. Meanwhile, Spurs big men LaMarcus Aldridge (season-high 33 points) and Pau Gasol (25 points) combined for 58 of San Antonio’s 115 points.

The 17,918 in attendance roared in applause when the Spurs announced Parker first among the starters during team introductions, and it didn’t take long for the 35-year-old point guard to score his first points. Parker juked Dallas’ Maxi Kleber with a vintage up-and-under layup for his first bucket with 8:51 remaining in the opening quarter.

Just 28 seconds later, Parker blew past Mavericks rookie Dennis Smith Jr. for another basket.

“Big lift, especially emotionally more than anything,” Spurs shooting guard Danny Green said of Parker’s return. “Just to see him warming up with us. I think everybody’s just happy for him, just to see him go through that process — the injury first, then taking that process of six to seven months of being out and not being able to play — and what he’s meant to us and this organization. For him to bounce back, and come in and play pretty quality minutes, and do it at an efficient rate, I’m just happy for him. Hopefully he can get back to his old self and help us. We’ll see where we’re at in a couple of weeks when hopefully we get the other guy [Kawhi Leonard] back.”

Parker played close to nine minutes in the first half, but took the floor again with the starters to start the third quarter.

Parker found Gasol for a cutting dunk to tie the score at 58 with 8:46 left in the third quarter, helping the Spurs overcome an eight-point deficit.

“He played with poise and confidence right off the bat,” Gasol said. “It was great to see, very positive for us. I know he’s very happy that he’s back after seven months of recovery, surgery and all of that. I just look forward to having more of Tony on the floor. He’s a guy that knows how to play the game so well, has so much experience, will make the right play and will get our team moving. That’s something very valuable for us.”

Spurs assistant Ettore Messina, who filled in as head coach once Popovich was ejected, said Parker’s leadership was quickly apparent in the veteran’s season debut.
“Personally, I was pleased to see him,” Messina said. “I think he did one big thing: He really poised the team at the beginning of the second half, not only because he scored, had a couple of jumpers and a couple of assists. But he really calmed down the team and had them executing on both ends of the floor.”

Parker played a total of 14 minutes. Before the game, he figured he’d be “lucky” if Popovich let him play five minutes. Parker said the plan moving forward over the next few games is for him to play somewhere in the neighborhood of 15 minutes each contest.

“I love Tony, he’s a great competitor, a great player,” said Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki. “I’m happy to see him back. He’s moving great, so it’s good to see him back.”

Cheap Stitched MLB Toronto Blue Jays Jerseys China 2018

Adding players to the 40-man roster is a calculated process.
In the end, the best talent usually gets protected, but various situations make it easy to protect some and not so easy to protect others.
The one notable omission from the Toronto Blue Jays’ flurry of roster moves Monday evening at the deadline to protect players from the Dec. 14 Rule 5 Draft is a perfect example.
Max Pentecost was the 11th-overall pick in the 2014 draft, but since then injuries have limited him to just 171 minor-league games over three years, including just 19 games behind the plate this past year in High-A.
Turning 25 in March, Jays general manager Ross Atkins gambled that no one would be able to select Pentecost and keep him on a major-league roster for the entirety of the 2018 season, which is what has to be done with a Rule 5 draft pick or you have to offer the player back to his original team for half of the $100,000 selection fee.
Typically, pitchers who can be stashed in a bullpen like Joe Biagini and position players who are able to at least hold their own defensively are amongst the small handful of names selected in the major league phase.
Last winter, 18 players were selected in the Rule 5 Draft.
Every team around baseball did some roster shuffling Monday in preparation for the annual yard sale.
After shuttling 27-year-old right-handed pitcher Chris Rowley and disappointing outfield prospect Harold Ramirez off the roster, as well as losing utility man Rob Refsnyder on waivers to the Cleveland Indians, the Blue Jays added five prospects to their 40-man roster and acquired another player in a minor trade with the Pittsburgh Pirates, leaving them at 39 players.
Here’s how all of them could fit into the Blue Jays’ roster plans in 2018:

2B/SS Gift Ngoepe
Embedded Image
The Jays will give up either cash or a player to be named later in order to add Ngoepe, who became the first African-born player to reach the majors last season, to their utility-man mix.
Offensively, there doesn’t seem to be a whole lot to get excited about when it comes to the soon-to-be 28-year-old, as he put up a .671 OPS in nine minor-league seasons, before striking out in 41.3 per cent of his 63 MLB plate appearances last year.
On the positive side, Ngoepe does walk a bit and scouting reports peg the 5-foot-8, 200-pounder as an above average option with the glove in the middle of the infield.
He should battle for a utility role behind the oft-injured Troy Tulowitzki and Devon Travis in the spring.

C Reese McGuire
Acquired along with Ramirez and Francisco Liriano in exchange for Drew Hutchison at the 2016 trade deadline, McGuire is now the last man standing on either side of that deal.
A knee injury set him back this past season, but he returned to slash .278/.366/.496 with six home runs in 136 plate appearances at Double-A, by far the best run the lefty has had with the bat since being selected 14th overall in 2013 by the Pirates.
The reason McGuire was added to the 40-man roster, however, has nothing to do with his bat.
The glove has long been seen as MLB-calibre and he profiles as backup catcher in the mould of, gulp, Josh Thole.
The Jays are clinging to hope there’s more offensive upside than that.
Depending who the Jays add in free agency, McGuire will be in the backup catcher mix during spring training, allowing the next guy on this list to head back to Triple-A to get more at-bats.

C Danny Jansen

After a breakout 2017 season that saw him slash .323/.400/.484 with 10 home runs and more walks than strikeouts across three levels to end up at Triple-A Buffalo, Jansen is now considered the Jays’ catcher of the future.
With Russell Martin signed for two more seasons, the Jays can continue to take it slow with Jansen and would much rather send him back to Triple-A to start 2018 than have his development stunted by riding the pine in a backup role in Toronto.
But if Martin were to get hurt again – he had two DL stints last season – Jansen could be in line for an extended look in his age-23 season.

1B Rowdy Tellez
Embedded Image
The 6-foot-4 first baseman was thought to be close to major-league ready after breaking out in Double-A with 23 home runs in 2016.
Instead, Tellez cratered last season in Triple-A, slashing just .222/.295/.333 and seeing his power completely disappear with just six homers. He also hit .148 against lefties.
The Blue Jays, however, know that Tellez was still just 22 last season and have no problem giving him at least another year to adjust and develop, the only difference being he’s now taking up a 40-man roster spot.

LHP Tom Pannone
This one should come as no shock.
Not only was this 23-year-old southpaw drafted in the ninth round in 2013 when Atkins was director of player development with the Indians, Pannone also posted a 2.36 ERA over 25 starts split between the Indians and Jays organizations last year.
After acquiring him at the deadline for reliever Joe Smith, Atkins brought Pannone’s name up multiple times when talking about 2018 rotation depth, despite not having a start above Double-A yet.
As a command and control lefty, Pannone isn’t going to wow many, but there’s a sneaky amount of upside as a backend starter and the bet is he’ll be needed at some point next summer in Toronto if he’s pitching well at Triple-A.
A big difference between 2017 and 2018 will be the Jays reaching for prospects like Pannone and fellow lefty Ryan Borucki when inevitable attrition hits the major league rotation this time around, which is a much better scenario than handing the Mat Latos’s and Mike Bolsinger’s of the world the ball.

RHP Conner Greene
Embedded Image
After walking 83 batters in 132.2 innings last year in Double-A, it’s hard to envision Greene being a legitimate option as a starter unless something miraculous happens with his command.
But when you can dial it up to 100 mph, a future as a late-inning reliever is always seen as a possible fallback and that’s the case with Greene, who may start the transition sooner rather than later if the Jays need help in the bullpen.
It also wouldn’t be surprising to see the Jays give it one more try with Greene in the rotation back at Double-A for a third go-round since he’s only turning 23 in April, but that could be something they wait until March in Dunedin to figure out.

Wholesale Authentic NFL Stitched Minnesota Vikings Case Keenum Jerseys China 2017

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — The Minnesota Vikings will stick with Case Keenum at quarterback when they host the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, coach Mike Zimmer announced Wednesday.

Keenum, who spent the 2015 and 2016 seasons with the Rams, led Minnesota to a 38-30 victory at Washington in Week 10, throwing for 304 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions.

Zimmer said it wasn’t a difficult choice to go with Keenum. He said his performance on Sunday was “part of” why the team is sticking with him as quarterback.

The decision to ride out the momentum with Keenum for another week delays the return of Teddy Bridgewater, who was activated to the 53-man roster last week. Bridgewater injured his left knee in August 2016 and hasn’t played in a game since; he will continue to serve as Keenum’s backup in Week 11.

Zimmer said the quarterback is healthy enough to play, otherwise he wouldn’t dress in uniform.

Keenum is 5-2 in his starts for the Vikings and has Minnesota riding a five-game winning streak.

Keenum has the NFL’s third-best Total QBR (72.6), behind injured Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson and the Cowboys’ Dak Prescott. In Sam Bradford’s absence, Keenum has orchestrated a Vikings passing attack that ranks 12th in the NFL with 245.8 yards per game.

Minnesota is in first place in the NFC North at 7-2 and faces off with Los Angeles (7-2) in a game with playoff implications. Keenum will go head-to-head with Jared Goff, the former No. 1 overall pick who replaced him as Rams starter in November 2016 after Keenum went 4-5 to begin the season. The Rams lost their remaining seven games after the switch.

“He’s a great dude,” Keenum said of Goff. “We’ve kept up throughout the season, obviously a lot of congratulatory texts between the two of us. I think one of my friends said it, ‘Just like everybody predicted. Case Keenum with the 7-2 Minnesota Vikings going up against the 7-2 Rams.’ I’m excited. I really am. He’s a great player. He’s playing really well. I’m excited for him.”

This season paints a different picture. Both quarterbacks boast the most improved QBRs from last year to now, according to ESPN Stats & Information. Goff is at the helm of an offense that is on pace to lead the league in scoring after finishing last in points last year.

Cheap Authentic Football Green Bay Packers Bryan Bulaga Jerseys China

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Bryan Bulaga sustained a season-ending knee injury in Monday night’s loss to the Detroit Lions, ensuring the Green Bay Packers’ preferred offensive line will have played together for less than a full game all year.

Bulaga suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament, ESPN confirmed on Tuesday. NFL Network was first to report that the 28-year-old, eighth-year veteran tore his ACL. That’s what the Packers feared immediately after the game, when coach Mike McCarthy said the team’s medical staff “seemed very concerned about it.”

Speaking Tuesday, McCarthy called it “tough” to hear about the injury.

“Bad news on Bryan Bulaga,” the coach said. “It’s very unfortunate. He will be lost for the season with his knee injury. He’s had a stretch of bad luck this year. It started with the ankle injury there in training camp. I feel bad for him. I thought he had clearly come off his best season last year.”

Monday’s game was just the second time all season that the Packers had all five of their top offensive linemen together. The first time was in Week 6 at Minnesota, but it lasted for only 15 plays before left guard Lane Taylor sustained an ankle injury. The group played together for 42 snaps against the Lions before Bulaga had to be helped off the field and carted to the locker room.

The Packers (4-4) have started seven different offensive line combinations in eight games this season.

Bulaga missed the entire 2013 season with a torn ACL in his left knee. This injury is believed to be to his right knee.

Earlier this year, Bulaga suffered a sprained right ankle in training camp and missed the first two games of the regular season. He returned for Week 3 but couldn’t make it through that game, either. He returned for Week 5.

Left tackle David Bakhtiari missed four games because of a hamstring injury. Only center Corey Linsley and right guard Jahri Evans have played in every game.

Even Bulaga’s replacement on Monday night, first-year pro Justin McCray, got hurt against the Lions. He rolled an ankle on the final play of the game — a 1-yard touchdown run by Jamaal Williams on an untimed down after a defensive penalty with no time on the clock extended the game.
Last week, the Packers used one of their two injured reserve/designated to return spots on backup tackle Jason Spriggs, who injured his hamstring on a special teams play in Week 1. They’re saving the other for quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who could return from his broken collarbone no earlier than Week 15. Spriggs, however, is not eligible to play until after Sunday’s game at Chicago. Another tackle, Kyle Murphy, is on injured reserve after undergoing foot surgery and will not play again this season.

Also Tuesday, safety Morgan Burnett was ruled out of Sunday’s game at Chicago because of the groin injury he suffered last night against the Lions.

“I don’t have a timeline for you,” McCarthy said. “But he will not be available this week against Chicago.”

Authentic Cheap NFL Seattle Seahawks Jeremy Lane Womens Jerseys China

The Seattle Seahawks and Houston Texans have amended their trade agreement after cornerback Jeremy Lane failed his physical, a source tells ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Lane will revert back to the Seahawks, who had agreed Monday to send him to Houston along with a 2018 fifth-round pick and a 2019 second-round pick for left tackle Duane Brown.

EDITOR’S PICKS

Source: Wilson redoes deal to help Brown trade
After the Seahawks agreed to a trade for LT Duane Brown, QB Russell Wilson reworked his contract to create salary-cap space to accommodate Brown, a source confirmed to ESPN.
In the new deal, Seattle will give up a higher draft pick to account for Lane’s not being included in the deal. According to the source, Seattle will get Brown and Houston’s 2018 fifth-round pick in exchange for the Seahawks’ 2018 third-rounder and their 2019 second-round pick.

It’s not clear what caused Lane to fail his physical. He began Sunday’s game against Houston as Seattle’s nickelback but was replaced by Justin Coleman after playing six snaps. Asked Monday about that move, coach Pete Carroll said Lane suffered a thigh bruise.

Lane had returned for Sunday’s game after missing two games and most of a third with a groin injury. He was listed as questionable heading into the Houston game because of that groin injury and also because of a more recent finger injury.

With Lane reverting back to Seattle and the team adding Brown, the Seahawks are one over the 53-man roster limit and might have to do more salary-cap maneuvering. The Seahawks on Tuesday reworked quarterback Russell Wilson’s contract to free up $4.17 million in cap space, a source confirmed to ESPN. That gave Seattle enough room to absorb Brown’s contract, which included a little less than $5 million for the remainder of 2017. But that was with the remainder of Lane’s salary — a little over $2 million — coming off Seattle’s books.

Lane’s salary is guaranteed for 2017, which means the Seahawks wouldn’t free up any cap space by releasing him. The Seahawks might also decide to keep him to help with depth at cornerback, something they were going to need after trading Lane.
