Galanis teamed up with former NFL agent Martin Blencowe to create a website to connect athletes, musicians and reality stars with their fans to create personalized, informal selfie shout-out videos for them. The price per video ranges depending on the celebrity, but Galanis told us that almost 97 percent of these videos are booked as gifts for people. So it’s not [celebrities] charging their super fans.

Trevor Siemian Jersey The Cardinals did a deal with the Raiders, and they picked Josh Rosen. The move allowed Arizona to cut the line in front of the Dolphins, a team that many thought would take Rosen, if he were still on the board.

Arizona gave up the 15th pick, the 79th pick, and the 152nd pick.

With Rosen going in the spot originally held by Oakland, four quarterbacks have gone in the first 10 picks for the first time ever.

Within a drug-infused business 鈥?even Vince McMahon admitted to taking steroids, and the WWE/WWF’s top doctor, Dr. George Zahorian, went to prison for illegal drug distribution 鈥?the McMahons sold unprintably vulgar skits and merchandise to kids. In my estimation, the McMahon’s plotted the most socially desensitizing, made-for-TV enterprise in American history.

But Sammartino’s dignity was such that he refused to capitulate, saying he didn’t want blood money. He was so conscious of his clean image that he would not have a glass of wine in a restaurant if a kid was in the room.

A celebrity comes up with their own price, but its based on a model that we came up with which is something we called ‘earnings per minute,’ Galanis told us. Take Andre Drummond 鈥?an NBA player. He makes $25 million a year. So we told him to take Evgeny Kuznetsov Jersey 25 million divided by 2,000 so there’s 50 40-hour work weeks in a year. Divide by 60 and someone making $25 million a year actually makes $208 a minute.

He continued, So if he’s doing videos for $100 or $150 bucks it’s actually worth his time compared to how much he’s making in the NBA.

We really believe that the key here is for talent to do as many of these videos as possible because it’s really like the most brand-positive thing they can do, Galanis added.

Housewives from a number of Bravo franchises are charging a pretty penny to connect with fans. Videos from current and former stars of the The Real Housewives of New York are priced at $25 for Kelly Killoren Bensimon, $59 for Jill Zarin, $75 for Dorinda Medley and $125 for Medley with boyfriend John Mahdessian.

Spurs confident they can come back vs. Warriors even if Kawhi doesn’t

Posted on by

A jovial Gregg Popovich turned serious in the Presidio room on the fifth floor of the Four Seasons Hotel on Sunday when the subject turned to Kawhi Leonard.

Emily Kaplan, national NHL reporter: The Avalanche. Going into their series against the Nashville Predators, there was no doubt which team was better. The Predators are deeper, more intimidating on defense, have a more skilled goalie and are better seasoned by far. (The Avalanche have a combined 175 games of playoff experience, the least of any team in the postseason; 14 Colorado players had never played in the postseason until last week.) In the first two games, Brandon Williams Jersey the Avs have been able to hang with the Predators in a way few imagined they could.

Wade’s paltry 19 minutes in Game 1 didn’t even register as a significant storyline at this stage in his career. That’s about what he had been playing since rejoining the Heat after a midseason trade with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Anything more he could give them than that was seen as a bonus, not something the Heat could count on.

Wade said he will take time after the season to decide whether to retire or return to the Heat for one more season.

Authentic Womens Craig Anderson Jersey Just taking time to think, that’s all I’m doing, Wade said. Taking time to think and looking at every angle and what’s the best situation for me to be in. That’s all. It’s a lot of different, it’s a lot of different things that come into play.

The crisis conference was supposed to be confidential, leading many present to make some extremely candid comments.

Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross suggested players and team owners march on Washington, while Philadelphia Eagles honcho Jeffrey Lurie described Trump’s presidency as disastrous, according to the paper.

The Steelers must find a replacement for Ryan Shazier

Posted on by

Olasunkanmi Adeniyi, Toledo: In his final season for the MAC champion Rockets, Adeniyi finished with 66 tackles (20 tackles for a loss), 8.5 sacks and three forced fumbles. As a sophomore, he had 49 tackles with four sacks, so he made a huge jump in a year. He’s projected as an outside linebacker in the NFL.

Can the Jets wait three seasons for their quarterback to develop into a potential star?

They gave up their No. 6 overall pick and three second-round picks (two of them in 2018 and one in 2019) to find out. Usually, second-round picks are starters or players who get significant playing time.

“I feel good about it,” Todd Bowles said. “Obviously, the closer you get to the draft, the more draft capital goes up and you have to give up more than that. The fact we made the move early I thought was a very good move for us and we’re in a position to get a good player.”

At No. 3, the Jets might not get the player they want, but they remain in solid shape. They have held private workouts with four of the top five quarterbacks in the upcoming draft.

Emily Kaplan, national NHL reporter: Sure, why not? Vegas is flashing the attributes that most Stanley Cup winners possess. To begin, the Golden Knights have superb goaltending. Fleury was strong when he played during the regular season, though that wasn’t a lot (he made just 46 starts because of injuries) and he has looked spectacular in these playoffs, allowing just three total goals while posting a pair of shutouts.

The Trojans were coming off the 1967 national championship with Yary blocking for tailback O.J. Simpson, who rushed for 1,543 yards and finished second in voting for the Heisman Trophy. Simpson was a junior and ineligible for the draft, but that didn’t stop the Vikings from trying to come up with a way to acquire him.

“We actually tried to trade the pick to somebody so we could get O.J. the next year,’’ said Bud Grant, the hall of fame coach who was entering his second season with the Vikings in 1968. “We thought maybe we could go through the league and we could postpone the pick until the next year, but there was no avenue for us.

“It was more of a fantasy. So, we put that to bed and we all agreed Yary was the best player in the draft.”

After winning the Heisman Trophy in 1968, Simpson was the No. 1 pick in the 1969 draft, going to the Buffalo Bills — and then making the Pro Football Hall of Fame. But so did Yary, one of the best draft selections the Vikings have made.

Dez Bryant: It’s very personal

If I didn’t have my edge I got it now, Bryant said on Twitter in the aftermath of his release. I’m sorry they got to feel me it’s personal . . . it’s very personal.

Brewers: Veteran J.J. Watt Womens Jersey LHP Wade Miley was added to the roster at Double-A Biloxi. Miley signed as a minor league free agent in the offseason and injured his groin late in spring training. … LHP Logan Boone, on the 10-day DL (left triceps), probably will throw a bullpen session sometime this week.

Reds: RHP Tyler Mahle (1-2, 5.63) makes his fourth start in the series finale Wednesday. After allowing one hit over six scoreless innings for the victory in his first start, he has given up 10 runs in 10 innings in his last two outings.

Brewers: RHP Zach Davies (0-2, 6.75) has allowed 12 earned runs in 16 innings in his first three starts. He gave up five runs and seven hits in 4 1/3 in his last start, a 6-5 loss to the Mets.

After seven seasons with the Jets, Muhammad Wilkerson is ready for what some close to him are calling a rebirth, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports. Wilkerson, 28, signed a one-year, $5 million deal with the Packers, with another $2.75 million available in incentives.

It gives Wilkerson a chance to prove he still has it.

I just learned that’s how this business is, Wilkerson said, via La Canfora. I won’t be the first player and I won’t be the last that some of these things happen to. So, is there a little extra motivation? Yeah, a little bit. But at the same time . . . everybody is entitled to their own opinion. I’m my own man, and I know what I can do and what type of player I am capable of being, and I feel like I’m going to be able to get back to being the dominant player I can be.

Report: Jerry Jones to meet with Dez Bryant on Friday

Authentic Danilo Gallinari Jersey Dez Bryant will meet with Jerry Jones on Friday, DFW’s 105.3 The Fan reports. The Cowboys could ask the star receiver to take a pay cut, or they could say good-bye by releasing him.
Women's Vegas Golden Knights #18 James Neal Adidas Black Backer Slim Fit Long Sleeve T-Shirt NHL Jersey
The Cowboys owner will make the decision on Bryant.

Embiid went on Instagram after the game and wrote, sick and tired of being babied.

Pack the black mask for Miami.

Joel is a superstar. Of course we’re missing him offensively, defensively, Sixers forward Dario Saric said. He’s a guy who wants to play all the time. I can’t wait for Joel to come back and help us because we’re a better team with him.

Even without Embiid, the Sixers trimmed the lead to two points late Authentic Marc Methot Jersey in the fourth.

Philly fans were going wild and suddenly the home-court edge that had made the Sixers unbeatable for a month seemed like it would perk the team back up for one more notch on the winning streak.

The Patriots attended the Pro Days of Louisville’s Lamar Jackson, Washington State’s Luke Falk, Richmond’s Kyle Lauletta and Toledo’s Logan Woodside and reportedly held private workouts with Oklahoma’s Mason Rudolph and Florida International’s Alex McGough, NESN reports.

New England owns two first-round picks and two second-round picks as well as four other picks, so the Patriots have the ammunition to trade up for a quarterback if they so desire.

Wolves’ Karl-Anthony Towns held to eight points in playoff debut

Posted on by

Minnesota Timberwolves coach Tom Thibodeau called for All-Star center Karl-Anthony Towns to play with more energy after Towns was an offensive afterthought in his Roger Craig Jersey playoff debut.
Stefon Diggs Mens Jersey NHL Men's Washington Capitals Big & Tall Logo T-Shirt - Red
Towns scored eight points on 3-of-9 shooting in the Timberwolves’ 104-101 loss to the Houston Rockets in Sunday’s Game 1. Thibodeau noted that the Rockets’ strategy of switching and double-teaming Towns was effective, but he put much of the onus for the off night on the 22-year-old big man’s shoulders.

There were several possessions on Sunday when Towns did not receive the ball despite posting up Rockets guards such as Eric Gordon and Chris Paul on switches. However, Towns didn’t complain about a lack of touches after the loss.

After the game, New Orleans coach Alvin Gentry raved about Holiday’s defensive effort.

It’s funny because we always put a clip on [the video edit] that says ‘game-winning plays’ and today it actually was Jrue blocking [Connaughton’s] shot in the Portland game, Gentry said. Same guy, almost the exact same area and he came up with another block. I just think, like I’ve said, with Kawhi Leonard not dressed and playing, I don’t know if there’s a better two-way player in the game.

For much of the night, it looked as if Portland would be lucky not to get blown out. Facing extra defensive attention in the pick-and-roll, Lillard and McCollum shot a combined 1-of-15 from the field in the first half. By the time they found a rhythm late in the third, New Orleans had nearly pushed the lead to 20 points. But the Blazers got just enough production from Lillard and their bench to stay in contact and keep the home crowd in the game.

The Pelicans still led by 13 with 5:08 left but wouldn’t score again for more than 2陆 minutes. A McCollum 3-pointer capped an 18-4 Portland run that made the score 93-92 with almost exactly a minute left.

Joel Embiid out for Game 2; coach Brett Brown won’t commit to return date

Posted on by

Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid has cleared the concussion protocol but will not play in Game 2 against the Miami Heat on Monday. Sixers coach Brett Brown said Sunday that the club does not have a clear idea on when Embiid might return.

Embiid suffered a broken orbital bone and concussion in a collision with teammate Markelle Fultz on March 28. He underwent surgery to repair the fracture and has been sidelined since.

Embiid had told ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne prior to Saturday night’s playoff opener that he was optimistic about playing in Game 2 or 3.

“If it was my decision, I would play, but I can’t get back out on the court if I don’t have the OK from them,” Embiid said. “But everything has been going well. I’ve been able to do everything. And I feel great. So we got a pretty good chance for Game 2 or Game 3. We gonna see how it feels in the next couple of days.”

Embiid said he has lost some weight since he suffered the injury. He will wear a protective mask when he returns to the court.

Without Embiid, the Sixers dominated the Heat in Game 1. Philadelphia outscored Miami by 31 points in the second half of its 130-103 win, using a number of small-ball lineups after halftime.

Philadelphia has handled Embiid’s absence well. The club is 9-0 without its All-Star center, who averaged 22.9 points, 11.0 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in 63 games in the regular season.

Overall, Philadelphia has won 17 consecutive games.

Smart injured himself diving to the floor to corral a loose ball against the Indiana Pacers on March 11. It was the same night that rookie Daniel Theis tore his meniscus and Kyrie Irving played his last game of the season for the Celtics.

Combined with the loss of Gordon Hayward on opening night, the Celtics enter the postseason with just 11 healthy bodies on their 15-man roster.

Smart’s return would be a needed boost for a young Celtics team. The team set a six- to eight-week timeline after his surgery.

“I’ve got hopes,” Smart said. “We’re very optimistic. But the last thing we want to do is get out there and rush anything and we’re back to square one. So right now the timetable is still the same. Hopefully, over the next couple of weeks, things change and we can move it up earlier.”jets_107

Pirates look to avoid sweep by Rockies

Posted on by

For the first time this season, the Pittsburgh Pirates are assured of losing a series. In fact, they will be trying to avoid a sweep by the Colorado Rockies when the teams play Wednesday afternoon at PNC Park in Pittsburgh.
NFL Men's Baltimore Ravens Nike Black Sideline Circuit Performance Sweatshirt
Colorado (11-8) won its third game in a row and second of this series 2-0 Tuesday night. In what has become a rarity for the Rockies, they didn’t need the long ball to win. They have 26 homers in 19 games.

Since losing their first two road games of the season, the Rockies are 9-2 away from home.

Pittsburgh (11-6) had won or split each of its first five series. The Pirates have lost two straight games for the first time but remain the surprising leader of the National League Central.

Flares and bloops, and the balls that were hit hard didn’t have the launch angle, Kuhl said. Kind of unfortunate, kind of singled to death. Didn’t have too many balls that were lifted.

Kuhl is 0-2 with a 5.73 ERA in two career starts against the Rockies, both last season and both against top Colorado starter German Marquez.

Freeland got a no-decision in his most recent start, a 2-1 win at Washington. He allowed one run and four hits, with three walks and four strikeouts but pressed the Rockies bullpen into early activation when he lasted just 4 2/3 innings.
Authentic Womens Ronald Leary Jersey
It was a battle out there; they kept fouling stuff off, Freeland told the Denver Post. But were able to come out of it with a win. … Where (the Nationals) had a lot of runners on in certain innings, me and Tobias Enstrom Womens Jersey (catcher Chris) Iannetta were able to minimize damage or have no damage at all. That came with good sequencing and executing pitches.

Freeland faced Pittsburgh twice as a rookie last season, going 1-1 with a 4.63 ERA, four walks and six strikeouts.

In 14 starts in his career on the road, he is 5-4 with a 4.64 ERA.

Harrison will undergo further evaluation on Monday in Pittsburgh.

Harrison missed the final month of the 2017 season after being hit by a pitch on the same hand. He was hit 23 times last year, which ranked second in the majors.

This caused plenty of speculation about Bryant’s future with the team considering his exorbitant cap hit.

Based on my observations, this is the cause of Barkley’s boom-or-bust style he disconnect between his unreal athleticism and his frustrating inability to push the pile as you’d want a true power back to do.
Women's Replica Majestic Adrian Beltre Green Jersey - #29 MLB Texas Rangers Salute To Service
Authentic Kids Brad Wing Jersey Where you most likely want Barkley in your offense is as an outside runner, where he can use his impressive acceleration and lateral balance to create in open space. This run against Washington in the Fiesta Bowl is a perfect example. Barkley is met by some contact, but he’s able to find some room and the results are as impressive as anything you’d see from the top NFL backs today.

Of course, the downside to that one big run is what it says about the rest of Barkley’s game against Ohio Staten his other 20 rushing attempts, he gained a combined eight yards against a defense that knew how to shut him down. And you can see on this run for a loss that Barkley didn’t really have an answer in power situationsere, he literally runs himself Latrell Sprewell Youth jersey in a circle, out of the play.

The 29-year-old originally signed his five-year, $70 million contract after the 2014 season, which featured a first-team All-Pro selection and an NFL-best 16 touchdowns. He produced 41 total touchdowns from 2012-14 while averaging 1,312 receiving yards per season.

His production hasn’t been the same over the past three years, however, averaging just 678 yards per season. He missed 10 games due to injury during this stretch and totaled just 17 touchdowns.

The Cowboys added receivers Allen Hurns and Deonte Thompson in the offseason, and while the team said at the time they weren’t replacing Bryant, per David Moore of the Dallas Morning News, it appeared to be the beginning of the end for him.

We’re going to be grinding it out and trying to determine what is in the best interest of our business, executive vice president Stephen Jones said of the receiver in February, per Drew Davison of the Star-Telegram.

Kids Zach Ertz Jersey
His supporting cast is better as he enters Year 3, which suggests another leap forward is attainable. Of course, limited volume (not much garbage time on a team that led on a league-high 52 percent of offensive snaps last season) and a lack of rushing production John Johnson Jersey mean Goff should be seen as a borderline QB1.

In every role and in every stop during his tenure in the NBA, Mitch Kupchak has brought the highest levels of success to his teams. He’s a proven winner, Jordan said in a statement. Having won championships as both a player and an executive, we have confidence that Mitch is the right person to lead our basketball operations, build a winning culture and bring sustained success to our organization, for our fans and for the city of Charlotte.

Seattle GM聽John Schneider likes to work the board and historically moves down, an approach which makes even more sense as he reloads the roster this year. At 6 feet and 196 pounds with exceptional ball skills, Jackson is almost a football clone of Sherman, who is slightly taller.

Philly loves double-tight sets, but Zach Ertz had to say goodbye to Trey Burton and Brent Celek this offseason. Hurst would be an upgrade over both. 聽

In truth, Miami has had just one winning season in the five years since the alteration. Surprise: More change is reportedly on the way.

Head coach Gus Bradley was all in: I look at the jerseys and I think (they’re) awesome.
