But since they took charge at United and City the relationship between Mourinho and Guardiola appears more cordial, with the Catalan happy to avoid the rows of the past.

NBA All-Star Game Draft will be televised for first time, report says NBA All-Star Game Draft will be televised for first time, report says
- November 09, 2018

Once the National Basketball Association made a decision to ditch the classic East-West format for the annual All-Star game for a draft by two captions, everyone wanted one thing: for the draft itself to be televised. "It's All-Star Weekend. You got 24 of the best players in the world that's going to make the team". I don't think it'll be bad. Still, expect King James to be the captain for the West with perhaps Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo being the captain of the East. (more...)

He is a very good person, his commitment to us is very big. Emery said after the game: "Lichtsteiner's injury changed our idea on the match, we wanted to change for Eddie Nketiah and give another chance for the striker.

The 34-point margin of victory marked the worst loss in John Calipari's coaching career. It's only one game, but Zion Williamson already looks like a potential No. Reddish hit another 3-pointer, Jones and Bolden hit layups and Barrett ended a fastbreak with a slam dunk to give Duke a 20-8 lead. March and the accompanying madness still is months away, but it probably isn't too soon to speculate how good Williamson and these Blue Devils might be this season. (more...)
