His fit with the Sixers appears seamless on paper. Redick long-range sniping will stretch opposing defenses for Embiid, Ben Simmons and Markelle Fultz to punish the rim. Off the floor, how does a 33-year-old father of two, commuting over two bridges, equally energized by investments and collectors watches as dribble handoffs, mesh with a roster of teenagers and 20-somethings?
MacMahon: The experiment of Kevin Love as the Cavs’ starting center didn’t last long, primarily because of defensive problems. (Not that shifting him back to power forward has solved anything.) He has been about as bad as a guy averaging 19 points and 11 rebounds can be. He has the worst net rating on the team (minus-9.9 points per 100 possessions). Cleveland is plus-6.1 when Love sits.
“This is one thing we never waste,” he said.
There’s nothing like playing hooky with the boss. Such was the case 25 years ago, when Saban was Bill Belichick’s defensive coordinator with the Cleveland Browns and they’d sneak out together to see concerts by performers such as Joe Walsh, Ringo Starr and The Eagles.
The Eagles, in particular, Rick Nash Jersey are a favorite of Saban’s. According to former Alabama long-snapper Carson Tinker, Saban has a room in his house dedicated to them. Initially, Tinker thought it was a small pantry because it was so inconspicuous — it was Marian Gaborik Jersey long, narrow and without decorations, he said.
Inside, all it had was a huge TV, a surround-sound system and a single leather recliner. “This is where I go on my bad days,” Tinker said Saban told him. “I throw on an Eagles concert and tune out.” Tinker added: “It’s so normal. When you grow up and think, ‘What would I do if I had all the money in the world?’ You would do that.” — Alex Scarborough
