Serge Ibaka responds to claims that he’s older than his listed age

Serge Ibaka could play for his third different team in a year after he was traded by the Thunder in the summer of 2016, and then sent to the Raptors at the trade deadline. He’s an unrestricted free agent now, but teams are questioning his value after he wasn’t able to boost the Raptors into Eastern Conference contention. That’s fair. But teams are also questioning the 27-year-old’s age. That isn’t.

As uncomfortable as it is to say that, the league, not the league office, teams, believe that [Serge Ibaka] is older than his listed age. Whether he is or not, and what are the ethical issues of saying that, I don’t know, but it affects the free agency market for him.”
These rumors have followed a number of international NBA players including most recently, Thon Maker.

“Every time I’m on the field, it’s just a part of my thought process. I’m a Mack Truck running through whoever is in front of me.”

Mack took the premise to his agent, and the iconic trucking brand was receptive to the idea.

“Obviously we share the same name, but what really drew us to him, based on what we had heard, was that we seemed to share the same fundamentally American values of hard work, family, honesty and humility,” John Walsh, Mack’s vice president of global marketing and brand management, told ESPN business bloviator Darren Rovell.

Sadly, the Raider linebacker’s deal likely means Falcons’ center Alex Mack’s chances at landing a deal with the company have run out.

Mack isn’t the only player to earn some sponsorship money thanks to his name. 2017 Cowboys draftee Taco Charlton signed with Taco Bueno and Big Red soda earlier this year. Broncos tight Cheap Kids Jerseys NHL end Cheap Jerseys Youth NFL Jake Butt did the only reasonable thing and landed a deal with Charmin toilet paper.

Knicks’ president Steve Mills told reporters a buyout is not an option at this stage for Anthony

The Knicks’ forward reasserted his desire to be traded after waging a season-long war against New York president Phil Jackson, who parted ways with the team after the NBA Draft. Anthony was expected to head to Houston in a deal that would have sent Ryan Anderson to Portland and a wealth of young players and trade assets to New York.

The deal was seen as a perfect match, pairing him with close friend Chris Paul and MVP runner-up James Harden to create the league’s most formidable Big 3.

The Trail Blazers, however, did not want to take back the additional three years at over $60 million on the 29-year-old Anderson’s contract. Neither did the Knicks. And with New York’s signing of Scott Perry as general manager, trade negotiations have been on standby.

Knicks’ president Steve Mills told reporters a buyout is not an option at this stage for Anthony, who is owed $53 million over the next two years of his contract. And if Melo isn’t willing to waive his no-trade clause to head to Portland, it could be slim pickings for suitors elsewhere.

If you got the news from Twitter and not the piece, there were a few good moments. Most of the piece is dedicated to thanking Utah Jazz fans, as the title would suggest, and that’s the way it should be. It’s a gut punch for the Jazz that Hayward is leaving, damaging a six-year plan. Hayward can at least say some nice things about his former team before walking out.

When I got to Salt Lake City, in the summer of 2010 — I know it’s a cliché, but man, it’s the truth: I was just a kid. I remember the drive. I drove all the way there, with my dad, from Cheap Jerseys Stitched Indiana to Salt Lake City, just to save money. I knew I had all of these expectations as a top 10 pick … but at the same Cheap Jerseys Online Free Shipping time, I was only 20. This was my first job away from home.
