The next Antetokounmpo: Kostas awaits his draft-night call

I’ve got to work on the way I read the game, and my moves.”If he makes the NBA, Kostas would be the third Antetokounmpo brother to reach the league. Besides Giannis, there was Thanasis — who appeared in two games for the New York Knicks in 2016. And there’s a fourth one on the way, that being 16-year-old Alex, someone who Giannis and Kostas both predict might be the best in the family.So soon, Alex will likely deal with what Kostas is dealing with now — inevitable comparisons to the more-famous brother.Kostas and Giannis are built similarly, with their long, lean frames and almost neverending reach. They sound alike in some ways, but both insist that they do not play the game the same way. It used to be difficult for Kostas to carry the label of ‘the next Antetokounmpo,’ he said, though over time he thinks he’s been judged more on the merits of his own game.“Every good player coming up, they’re compared to somebody,” Kostas Antetokounmpo said. “So I’m used to that. It makes me work harder. If they compare me to a top-10 player in the NBA, I don’t have a problem with that.”Kostas Antetokounmpo said he expects to immediately contribute at the NBA level, based on the way he can run the floor and his penchant for being able to defend — especially around the rim. He said he tries to emulate not his brother so much, but more along the lines of Kevin Garnett largely because of the way he defended.He has no idea yet where he’s going to get picked, and some mock drafts have him sliding to the second round.He insists that won’t matter.“I feel like I can be an NBA player,” he said. “I think a lot of teams see me and they see a kid that works hard, a kid that can become a NBA player. First round, second round, it doesn’t matter to me. I’m going to do what I can do and try to get better.” DepEd’s Taal challenge: 30K students displaced MOST READ A player who averaged 5.2 points and 2.9 rebounds per game in his lone season of college basketball, primarily as a backup for a team that didn’t finish with a winning record, wouldn’t ordinarily seem like much of an NBA draft prospect. But in this case, the player in question is Kostas Antetokounmpo — who believes that he is ready to follow his All-Star brother Giannis into the league.On Thursday night, he’ll find out which NBA club agrees.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown“I feel like when you do a sport, when you do something, you want to be the best at it,” Kostas Antetokounmpo said. “Since I was little I wanted to be an NBA player. So it’s about time.”Maybe so, but unlike his brother — the Milwaukee star who might be an MVP candidate for years to come — Kostas Antetokounmpo’s game is nowhere near the elite level.

But I think he can be really good if he gets with the right team and tries to get better every day.”The 20-year-old Kostas Antetokounmpo struggled to remain a big part of the rotation at Dayton in his one college season, starting six games early in the year but also playing less than 10 minutes in six others. He had a big game off the bench late in the season to help the Flyers beat Saint Louis, and after that game Dayton coach Anthony Grant pointed to that as the sign of what Antetokounmpo can do.“That’s what he’s capable of,” Grant said, “when he puts his mind to it.”The good news for Kostas Antetokounmpo is this: He knows he’s nowhere near a finished product.He’s 6-foot-10 with long arms, his standing reach extending just 10 inches shy of the rim. But he’s only 195 pounds, needs to work on his strength and missed basically half of his free-throw tries last season.ADVERTISEMENT Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours View comments AP PhotoHis numbers are ordinary.

EMC & VMware Vs. Amazon: The Empire Strikes Back

first_imgMassive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… Tags:#Amazon Web Services#applications#Computing#EMC#enterprise#infrastructure#private cloud#public cloud#software platform#VMware Amazon Web Services is on fire, and EMC and VMware are feeling the heat. So the established enterprise-computing duo is striking back — by launching Pivotal, a joint venture that aims specifically to dethrone the current king of cloud computing.Pivotal is led by Paul Maritz, the ex-CEO of VMware and a former senior executive at Microsoft. In leading the charge against AWS, Maritz is diving into a cloud-computing mosh pit that will include other tech heavyweights, such as IBM, Microsoft and Oracle.(See also: Amazon: Can It Stay King Of Cloud Computing Forever?)Pivotal heads for battle with parent-company assets — database technologies, data analytics and an application platform — it is combining into services that customers can lease to run their own software in the cloud. EMC owns 69% of Pivotal and VMware the rest. The two owners will have to invest a total of $800 million this year and next in order to kick start Pivotal, which Maritz conservatively estimates will reach $1 billion in revenue in five years from $300 million this year.Amazon’s LeadThose numbers show how long it will take Pivotal to catch up with AWS. While Amazon won’t break out the numbers for its cloud-computing unit, analysts say it is lumped inside the revenue category the online retailer calls “other.” In Amazon’s fourth quarter earnings released in January, “other” accounted for $769 million in revenue for the quarter and $2.52 billion for the year. That’s a respective growth of 68% and 64%, according to the International Business Times. (See also: VMWare: “If Amazon Wins, We All Lose”)And AWS doesn’t appear to be slowing down. Macquarie Capital analyst Ben Schachter estimates AWS will surpass $3.8 billion in revenue this year, and values the business at $19 billion.Nevertheless, the market is still young. Most AWS customers today are startups and small and medium-sized businesses. Amazon is expected to shift focus to large companies soon, heading right into EMC’s and VMware’s sweet spot. This is making both companies very nervous.During a partner conference in February, VMware Chief Executive Pat Gelsinger warned that if “a workload goes to Amazon, you lose, and we have lost forever,” CRN reported. To avoid that kind of customer drain, Pivotal will provide the public-cloud option for VMware customers using its infrastructure technology for private clouds. Supporting that migration is important to EMC, because it owns 80% of VMware.Pivotal In The CloudOn paper, Pivotal will provide an enterprise-class cloud-computing platform and infrastructure. The company includes Greenplum, EMC’s Big Data analytics division, and Pivotal Labs, the storage company’s application development environment. VMware is contributing cloud-computing platform CloudFoundry, and middleware and tools for building and running data-intensive Java applications.Maritz will have to build a business on top of all this technology, but EMC’s and VMware’s commitment to Pivotal shows how they believe customer migration to cloud-computing environments outside their data centers is inevitable. The companies also know that failing to have what customers want would be suicidal.In 2011, Gelsinger, then president and chief operating officer for EMC, said the company did not intend to become a casualty of any major change in the industry.“The technology industry is ruthless and relentless,” he said during an interview at the VMworld conference. “If you are not in front of those major waves of technological innovation, you will become one of the driftwood on the shores of the industry.”In cloud computing, stopping Amazon is how EMC and VMware plan to reach that shore alive.Image courtesy of Shutterstock antone gonsalves Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of…center_img 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now Related Posts IT + Project Management: A Love Affairlast_img read more

Berlusconi slams Gattuso

first_imgFormer AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi has heavily criticized manager Gennaro Gattuso for their style of play.AC Milan have lost two games on a row against Inter Milan and Real Betis, and massive pressure is on Gattuso to turn things around.Former owner Berlusconi still regards himself as a fan and revealed his disappointment with the way things are going at AC Milan.“I still follow Milan as a fan, but with a sense of disappointment, because it makes me suffer to watch them play like this,” Berlusconi told Sportmediaset.Cristiano Ronaldo, JuventusSerie A Betting: Match-day 3 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Considering there is a number of perfect starts so early in the Serie A season, as well as a few surprisingly not-so perfect ones….“They are set out so inefficiently, have very few shots on goal and our center-forward never has a chance to receive the ball. Naturally, all this depends on the tactical system and I hope it can change soon.”When asked if Gattuso should be sacked, Berlusconi replied: “These are decisions that are down to the leaders of the club and I have no desire to get in the way.”last_img read more

Zlatan Ibrahimovic reveals his biggest influence in football

first_imgSwedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic granted an interview to L’Equipe where he gave a surprising statement about his real influence in football.We have lived inside a lie for all these years, we always thought that Ronaldo Nazario was Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s biggest influence in football but we were mistaken.The Swedish striker just revealed the truth about this during an interview with L’Equipe where he spoke about the time when he played for Juventus during a small period of time and met the player who taught him the biggest lessons in the profession, that man is French midfielder, Patrick Vieira.It’s weird I know, but if you stop to think about it, this revelation actually makes a lot of sense.During that period when Zlatan Ibrahimovic had just moved out of his bubble in Holland where he became a world-class player at Ajax from Amsterdam, coming to Serie A was one of his biggest career moves and he arrived in a squad that was filled with some of the biggest names in football at the moment.There he would meet a couple of French legends who quickly grounded him and made him realize that he was a flawed individual, one who could achieve greatness but needed to learn a few life lessons first.Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira wishes Zlatan Ibrahimovic good luck at Manchester United: https://t.co/3q9ivJrSUZ pic.twitter.com/44oFNV5nEe— Metro Sport (@Metro_Sport) July 1, 2016At the time, there was actually no one better than Vieira to teach him those lessons and both players quickly developed a close bond. Even when Juventus was part of that match-fixing scandal in 2006, the two of them decided to play for Internazionale Milano together and they continued to make their friendship flourish.This reveal is really weird because now the video of Zlatan Ibrahimovic admiring Brazilian Ronaldo when they met at a Milano Derby later on, just looks a bit creepy now because we always believed that Zlatan’s biggest influence was the legendary Brazilian striker.But then again, Patrick Vieira does look like a man who could teach a few things to anyone about football, maybe that’s why he decided to become a manager after his career ended.Zlatan Ibrahimovic broke the news to eveybody on his latest interview to French journal L’Equipe, where he also spoke about the possibility of going back to Paris Saint-Germain as a manager in the future, hinting that this could be the next career path for him.Mario BalotelliCorini tells Balotelli to “raise his game” Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 According to the Brescia coach, Mario Balotelli “needs to raise his game if he wants to face Juventus” as his team is set to host Bologna.Zlatan Ibrahimovic reveals Patrick Vieira was the biggest influence on his career – “he was always on my back, it was never good enough”. https://t.co/pkqI022Yeg #Juventus #FCIM pic.twitter.com/DLvY6KAIgb— footballitalia (@footballitalia) November 9, 2018“When I met him at Juventus, he had a really different mentality from the other players I’d known,” Ibrahimovic told L’Equipe.“He was always on my back, I thought I was doing things right but it was never good enough. He showed me that you have to give more, want more.”“He taught me that we play as we train. That’s how it works: if you train well, you play well. I don’t need to tell you the player and the professional he was.”“He was a phenomenal player who will remain in history, but I’m happy I knew the player and person. He deeply influenced my game by pushing me to give 120 percent every day, every game.”“I’m not surprised he became a Coach, he already had that in him: his experience, his maturity, his way of helping others.”“He was always available to talk. He really helped a lot of players, not just me. There were big stars at Juve at the time, and to please them you had to give a lot, you got nothing for free,” he concluded.Zlatan Ibrahimović: “Vieira is one of the best players I played with. He was a monster. He taught me so much.” pic.twitter.com/pg9ogekbBM— Football Tweet (@Football__Tweet) December 2, 2015What do you think about Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s unexpected revelation about his biggest influence in football?

Kavanaugh Supporters In Kenai Want To Be Heard

first_imgFacebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Early Thursday morning Diane Macrae was among the first to arrive at a rally, off Kalifornsky Beach Road, in support of Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court. U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK),  is considered a swing vote, and has said she has made “no decision” on Kavanaugh’s fate,  as of Thursday morning. Alaskans urging a “no” vote are also making their case loudly with the support of the ACLU. The ACLU has been flying dozens of Alaskans to D.C. to deliver their message in person. Diane Macrae: “This was just neighbors talking to neighbors, and saying let’s do it, why be silent, if you support them you don’t have to be ashamed of supporting someone you think would be a good Supreme Court Justice.”  Republican Senate leaders and White House officials said Thursday that an FBI background investigation into sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh revealed no evidence of wrongdoing. A final vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination could come as early as Saturday, following a procedural vote on Friday morning. Macrae is joined by others in the community hoping that their voices will be heard: “There’s a lot of pressure on Lisa Murkowski from outsiders. It seems like our voice on the nationwide and all over is not being heard. Her phones have been busy, and this was a way to reach out and let her know this is support for Brett.”last_img read more
