The NHL club made the announcement on Wednesday. And I also wrote that it was no longer a hockey decision, that with an inordinate number of people sitting in the stands on significantly discounted secondary market tickets in the $40-to-$60 range - and a third of the long-term premier seating season subscribers deals up at the end of this year - a message must be delivered to them.

He has logged six DNP-CD in the Knicks' last eight games. It's really been a top-to-bottom effort for a franchise that is closing in on the most valuable product both on the court and financially. In his 25.6 minutes per game with NY this season he is averaging 14.0 points, 10.5 rebounds, and 1.9 assists. The Knicks finally waived Enes Kanter and Wes Matthews but not DeAndre Jordan .

perth_map

Kante has arguably been the most influential signing made by Chelsea since Eden Hazard , having arrived from Leicester City a Premier League victor in the summer of 2016. Though Chelsea succeeded before Hazard, and will go on to win plenty in the years post his departure, he's one of the top five players on the planet, and it's been a pleasure to see him in action in SW6 over the past six-and-a-half-years.

perth_map

Brady has yet to back off his comments/intentions of playing until the age of 45, and with another Super Bowl ring to his name, why would he stop?

perth_map

The Memphis Grizzlies were expected to make waves ahead of the National Basketball Association trade deadline, and roughly one hour before the final buzzer, they did just that.

Among the proposed changes, the union requested a universal designated hitter be implemented ahead of the 2019 season, sources told Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic . Players responded February 1 with a broader plan, renewing their push for the DH in all games, an earlier trade deadline aimed at discouraging teams with losing records from trading stars, increasing service time for top young stars called up early in the season and rewarding and penalizing teams in the draft based on their records.

New Zealand's Daryl Mitchell was given out lbw on the field to Krunal Pandya and the decision was upheld by TV umpire Shaun Haig despite HotSpot indicating the batsman had inside-edged onto his pad. Vijay Shankar didn't last long but with just over 40 runs to cross the finishing line, the result of the match was more or less a foregone conclusion. Read More »

perth_map

The evergreen 48-year-old had a quiet front-nine before enjoying a run of three birdies in four holes after the turn, and he picked up further shots at 16 and 18 to ensure he would end the day just a stroke adrift of early pace-setters Brian Gay and Scott Langley. Read More »

Sixers trading Fultz to the Magic

perth_map

Fultz has played in only 33 games since being taken No. 1 overall in the 2017 draft. The Sixers traded Fultz to the Orlando Magic on Thursday, just beating the trade deadline. The Celtics were able to turn Markelle Fultz into Jayson Tatum. Fittingly, no future is more murky than Fultz's. His weird off-court saga, the mysterious disappearance of his jump shot , subsequent injury woes and the fact he'd become a poor fit next to ball-dominant Ben Simmons had made this a tenuous ...

I think it's there now from both sides - the team and the engine supplier. Red Bull and Verstappen have talked up the new partnership with Honda, after taking digs at Renault past year and questioning its commitment. But according to the Dutch driver, his new Red Bull RB15 - the first of the team's cars that will feature Honda horsepower - already feels good on the simulator. Read More »

perth_map

TNT host Ernie Johnson jabbed at James asking if he was sure he wanted Davis to be his teammate, to which he responded he was "very sure".

Suarez pushing for Arsenal start after impressing Emery

perth_map

But that £18m would eat up nearly half of Emery's summer budget now, and Suarez looks more like a lightweight alternative out wide or as a playmaker in a side that already has players in that mould. "Imposing ourselves from the first minute, and throughout the 90 minutes, our capacity against them - but first is the mentality". We took a look at how Arsenal fans reacted to Ozil not featuring at all against City on social media. Read More »

Wizards sending Porter Jr. to Bulls for Parker, Portis

perth_map

It appears that Washington Wizards forward Otto Porter Jr . could be on the move. The move sheds Washington of significant salary, as Porter is owed $26 million this season and $27.2 million in 2019-20. Parker and Portis are the Bulls third and fourth-leading scorers behind Zach LaVine and Lauri Markkanen. Parker's situation is a bit more complicated, but his deal is essentially an expiring one as the Wizards would be foolish to pick up his $20 million option for next season. Read More »

LeBron James didn't like how Harrison Barnes trade went down

perth_map

James said he wasn't "knocking" the Mavs for doing "what you feel [is] best", but he wanted to make a point that if teams can take that approach with players, then the reverse ought to be acceptable, as well.

Barnes left the American Airlines Center without talking to the media but did post on social media later Wednesday. Read More »
