Chris Bosh: ‘My health is great. I’m feeling good’

first_imgView comments 2 ‘bookies’ bet collectors held in Quezon Bosh has watched Heat games on television, continues to have a spot in the team locker room and is in contact with some players from time to time. He hasn’t been around the team, though, and said not having the sort of schedule that he grew used to during his 13 NBA seasons was more difficult to deal with than he would have envisioned.“I think one of the interesting things that I didn’t anticipate was my mental health, and that’s something that as athletes we have to take into regard because we’re used to a set schedule and we’re used to a certain type of world,” Bosh said. “And that’s something that I’ve really had to work on for my well-being.”Bosh will continue as an analyst for Turner for the next four Mondays, running through March 27.The Heat played Monday night in Dallas, and when the highlights of the Mavericks’ victory were shown the in-studio conversation between Bosh, Webber and fellow analysts Isiah Thomas and Baron Davis turned to Miami.Bosh lauded what the Heat have done in salvaging the season after an 11-30 start, adding that he is “proud of a lot of the guys.”ADVERTISEMENT “I think you just have a bunch of young guys trying to figure it out right now,” Bosh said. “But they’re scrappy. I know one thing — they’re going to prepare. They’re going to play hard every night. … The system is the system, they’re going to run that system and they’re going to roll it out with their guys.”Bosh did not offer any hints about his future, nor did he specifically say that he plans on returning to the NBA.Because he has been sidelined for more than a year, the Heat can choose at any time to initiate a process where his contract would be removed from their salary cap. It’s unclear when the Heat will choose to do so, though with Bosh owed more than $52 million over the next two seasons — money he is guaranteed — it is certain Miami will seek the cap relief at some point before next summer.Bosh also didn’t reveal what he tells his kids when they ask about his comeback plans.“I’m getting pressure from them too,” Bosh said.Bosh has been selected to 11 All-Star teams, and helped Miami win NBA titles in 2012 and 2013.

Bosh remains under contract with the Miami Heat, but has not been with the team this season after failing a physical in September.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSEnd of his agony?

‘West Ham has been perfect for me’

first_img2 This interview appears in the current edition of Sport magazine. Download the free iPad app from the Apple Newsstand, and follow on twitter @sportmaguk“I caught a 26-and-a half pound carp, that’s my biggest so far.”It’s safe to say our Premier League chat with Carl Jenkinson has gone somewhat off-piste. “I really enjoy fishing,” he continues. “It helps me get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and go to chill out for a couple of days.”We started off talking to West Ham’s current right-back about all things football, but Corporal Jenkinson has an enthusiasm that’s difficult to curb. “I have no idea where that name comes from,” he explains later. “But I’m always quite serious on the pitch, so maybe it’s something to do with that.”The good news for Jenkinson is that he has plenty to talk about on the pitch this season as well as off it. After three frustrating seasons playing a bit-part role for Arsenal, a loan move to West Ham has seen him getting regular Premier League football. Despite a run of seven points in ten games, which has seen the Hammers drop out of a top-four race and into mid-table, Jenkinson feels that he made the right decision in trading red for claret and blue last summer.“It was a big decision,” he admits. “But [Mathieu] Debuchy came through the door for £12m, and I kind of knew a club doesn’t pay that money for a player and not play him. I didn’t want another season of just sitting on the bench, so I spoke to the boss and he agreed it would be a good idea for me to get a season of experience under my belt in the Premier League. It’s definitely been the right decision for me. It’s been the first time I’ve played regular football week in, week out, and that’s all a footballer really wants to do.”With 30 league and cup appearances under his belt, Jenkinson has certainly played his part in West Ham’s topsy-turvy season. As a loan player, though, we wonder if winning over the fans and team-mates is more of a challenge?“I guess you have to have confidence in yourself,” Jenkinson explains. “You can’t worry too much about what other people think. If you’re good enough, hopefully the fans, players and of course the manager will approve. I wanted to get into the team here as soon as possible, but just because I came from Arsenal doesn’t mean I have a divine right. West Ham are a big team, so I had to work to get in. The main person you want to impress is the manager, but if you can get the fans and team-mates onside, then that’s great – and I think I’ve done that.“We’ve had a strong season, which helps – I don’t know if I’d say the same if we were down the bottom. The style of play and the way West Ham play in an attacking sense has certainly suited me. I’ve got forward a lot, got a lot of crosses into the box and it has been good. I wanted to go to a club where I would be able to express myself and not just be stuck defending in my own box and my own half. I’ve certainly been given the licence to do that.”The 23-year-old still has three years on his Arsenal contract, but West Ham and Liverpool have both been heavily linked with permanent moves for him in recent weeks. 2 Carl Jenkinson “I’ve got to focus on my football for the time being and those things will look after themselves,” Jenkinson points out. “But West Ham has been perfect for me, and I’ve loved every minute. It’s definitely a place I’d consider staying, but the ball is in Arsenal’s court. I’ve enjoyed my time at West Ham. I also want to play at the highest level I can. I’ve got a massive summer in front of me at the Under-21 European Championship, so my focus isn’t really on where I’m going to be next season.”For now, though, there is the small matter of six Premier League games to finish the season. Despite West Ham’s recent slump, Jenkinson insists they aren’t just drifting towards the campaign’s end.“We’ve got to look at this last stretch as an opportunity to get eighth place – it’s certainly not a case of giving up. We started so well that it’d be a real shame to drop into the bottom half of the table. Everyone would see that as a disappointment, so we want to finish in the top half – any West Ham fan would have taken that at the start of the season.”Jenkinson says his side’s recent run has been frustrating, and things like Stoke’s last-minute equaliser last weekend have been the story of West Ham’s past couple of months.“We’ve conceded quite a few late goals and it’s something we’ve got to try cut out,” he says. “You look at the results and performances over the past few months and we’ve deserved a lot more points.”Next up for Jenkinson and West Ham is Manchester City on Sunday, with both sides struggling for a win.“We’ve already beaten some of the big boys this season, so we know we’re capable of doing it,” he says. “The big games are the ones all players want to play in because you get an opportunity to test yourself against some of the best players in the world – maybe subconsciously you even lift your game. It’s a massive game, though, and one we’re really up for. It’s important we make the most of the fact that their confidence isn’t going to be as high as it usually is. We’ve got to go there, play our game and try to express ourselves. We’ve beaten City at home already this season, so we know we can do it.”last_img read more

ANGELS-RED SOX NOTEBOOK G.A. says pink eye wasn’t a problem

first_imgBy Doug Padilla STAFF WRITER BOSTON – Garret Anderson insisted he could see just fine, but what seemed abundantly clear Wednesday during the opening game of the playoffs were his struggles at the plate. Actually, all Angels batters struggled against Boston Red Sox ace Josh Beckett, but Anderson seemed to be having a bad time early with strikeouts in his first two at-bats. He finished his night with a pop foul to third and a fly ball to deep center to end the game. Routine day for Escobar Kelvim Escobar, who pitches for the Angels in Game 2 on Friday night against the Red Sox’s Daisuke Matzuzaka, is back on somewhat of a regular routine after getting 11 days of rest before his last start of the regular season. Escobar, who has battled knee tendinitis all season, was feeling the effects of a sore right shoulder as the season entered its last month. He gave up just a run in his final start at Oakland on Saturday, but gave up six runs in each of his previous two starts. “I feel pretty good,” Escobar said. “I think the rest, the break that I had, it helped me a lot just to let the inflammation calm down and I feel pretty good right now.” No guarantee Arte Moreno knew better and refused to take the bait about an hour before game time. “No guarantees,” the Angels owner said while standing on the field near his seats alongside the Angels dugout. “I guarantee that we will play tonight.” Moreno, of course, made the now-infamous guarantee at the end of last season when he said the Angels would add an impact bat during the offseason. The Angels tried, but were unsuccessful. What Moreno also can’t guarantee is that there will be a pro-Angels crowd for Game 3 at Angel Stadium. Typically, Red Sox fans procure tickets from Angels season-ticket holders for games in Orange County and the crowd often seems to be an even 50-50 split. “I don’t worry about that, it’s sort of a supply and demand,” Moreno said. “Obviously people want to pay the money for the ticket. We price the ticket and these Red Sox fans are passionate about seeing their team. “They pay up.” Colon could pitch According to Scioscia, there is no indication yet that the elbow pain that forced Bartolo Colon off the Division Series roster is serious enough to require surgery. He can still pitch in this postseason if he feels better and the Angels advance. Colon, who is a free agent after this season, is not expected to be pursued by the Angels. This and that The Red Sox have defeated the Angels seven consecutive times in the postseason, including three consecutive games in both 1986 and 2004. … The Angels were shut out for just the second time in postseason history and for the first time since Game 4 of the 1979 American League Championship Series against Baltimore. … A game-opening single from Chone Figgins snapped an 0-for-22 skid to end the regular season. doug.padilla@sgvn.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Anderson gave every assurance he would not be a detriment to the team. He went through a round of batting practice Tuesday and another Wednesday before he pronounced himself fit to play. “He wouldn’t have played if he couldn’t (see well),” Manager Mike Scioscia said. “Garret knows what is at stake and he wouldn’t do that.” last_img read more

Griezmann wants to be new Becks, says Atletico Madrid star’s trusted advisor

first_img Griezmann’s image advisor believes a switch to United would be the ideal move 1 A key advisor to Antione Griezmann has urged the Atletico Madrid star to join Manchester United, saying a summer switch would be an ‘ideal fit’ for the France star.Griezmann, 25, has been linked with a move away from La Liga and United are right at the front of the queue to sign him in a deal which could be worth £60million.And one of his trusted ‘image advisors’, Sebastien Bellecontre, has revealed he would be keen to help sanction a switch to join Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford.Bellencontre told So Foot magazine: “When I read articles about a hypothetical transfer to Manchester United I think it would be the ideal commercial scenario.“He would play at David Beckham’s former club, which is his idol, with the same legendary number on his back.”The No 7 short – as worn by a  number of United greats – is now vacant following the departure of Memphis Depay to Lyon in the January transfer window.last_img read more

Going the distance

first_imgWHITTIER – Erin Wahl doesn’t mind busting gender stereotypes. As navigator of an all-male stock truck racing team that recently took third place in a 600-mile race from Las Vegas to Reno, Wahl is driving right through them. The 19-year-old Whittier resident helped build her modified Ford Ranger racing truck with her father, Michael Wahl, and specialists at Desolate Motorsports in Whittier. Erin Wahl said women are scarce in her “hobby” – a pastime she picked up “naturally,” she says, after years of racing all-terrain vehicles in the desert around Parker, Ariz., where her father owns a bar and vacation home. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWhy these photogenic dumplings are popping up in Los Angeles“A lot of people think it’s cool because I’m a girl racing,” she said. “So now a lot of my friends who have trucks are saying, `Oh, I’m going to build a race truck, too.’ It’s been real fun.” Her recent third-place finish came in the third race of a five-race series sponsored by the “Best of the Desert,” an off-road racing association. The five races are spread over the entire year from February through December. Each race in the series ranges between 250 and 600 miles, and they all take place in Nevada, except for the “Parker 425,” a loop race that begins and ends in Parker. Her next race starts Oct. 13, a 300-mile loop that begins and ends in Las Vegas. Father and daughter began their hobby together when they bought the frame and cab of a 1994 Ford Ranger last October. About $40,000 later, they had fitted the truck with a roll bar, a suspension lift and some computer adjustments to enhance its horsepower, Michael Wahl said. He said race truck drivers engage in a lot of physical contact while jockeying for positions over the rough terrain. “\ just learning,” he said. “Co-drivers mostly navigate. These guys \ are all professionals. The average Joe can’t just jump in the truck and go for a ride. They’ll wreck you out of the way.” His daughter’s third-place finish in the all-night race came despite her truck getting stuck for four hours in a “silt pit,” an area of fine powdery dirt. “We were going so fast, and then we got stuck,” she said. “We had to dig for four hours. I just wanted to go to sleep so bad. But that’s part of racing. I got over it.” Greg Gilbert, owner of Desolate Motorsports and one of Erin’s teammates, said building and racing a truck with a young woman was a unique experience. “You just can’t yell at them as much,” said Gilbert, who has raced in similar races for five years. “When things go bad, you have to keep your cool and you can’t say the same words to them as to guys. “Other than that, we’re just all out to win,” he added.

At the other end, Paul McConalogue had a header saved by David McGeady.Paddy Curran then dragged a shot wide before seeing a header from a Conor Bradley cross sail over. In between those chances Conor Bradley was denied by a smothering save from Roger McGilloway. They broke the deadlock on 40 minutes after McMonagle’s low cross found Chris McGarrigle whose sweetly struck effort from sixteen yards nestled in the bottom corner. Rasheney responded and when Adam Kirkland turned well inside the area his rising shot was palmed away by McGeady.Aileach had the final chance of the half when Killian O’Rourke fired a low shot just past the post. Aileach started the second half well and a Conor Bradley cross cum shot was clawed away by McGilloway from under the bar.Rasheney went close on the hour mark when a Charlie Doherty free found Paul McConalogue who fired wide from close range.Aileach regained control with Bradley firing at McGilloway and O’Rourke shooting over.  When McMonagle broke clear in a two on one with Stephen Doherty his attempted square ball was intercepted by McGilloway.

The first chance of the second half came in the 55th minute when Jason Devlin laid off a pass for over-lapping left-back Matthew Brennan but John Lafferty spread himself well and he blocked Matthew’s shot.It was a short reprieve for Dunree as three minutes later Alex McFadden was fouled on the right-hand side of the box and Mark McLaughlin chipped the free-kick into a space around the penalty spot and an in-rushing Liam Hirrell directed his header to the top corner giving the Dunree keeper no chance.Straight from kick-off Dunree attacked down the left-wing and Matthew Doherty hit a speculative shot from around 25 yards out which had Paddy Harkin scrambling back but it hit the crossbar and was cleared to safety. Clonmany striker Pearce McCarron had a good chance in the 71st minute when he was put through one on one with John Lafferty but the Dunree keeper was out quickly and made a good save.Mark McLaughlin almost grabbed a second on the day in the 77th minute when he took Alex McFadden’s lobbed pass in his stride but shot narrowly wide.The last chance of the match came in the 81st minute when a flowing move from their own half saw Pearce McCarron break away to the right side of the Dunree box before he squared to Mark McLaughlin on the 18 yard line who dummied  it letting roll over to Jason Devlin in space on the left side but Jason’s shot went over the bar.QPS                            2 Glengad Res             2Glengad started this game the better and Graham Morgan had an effort tipped round the post by Aiden Lynch before Gary Kelly saw a shot tipped onto the post.

The Point then doubled their lead when a short corner to Deaglan Bowen saw his cross find Andrew Barr to head inside the far post.Glengad finished the half very strongly with McDermott firing a free just wide before the same player had a penalty saved by Lynch after Gary Kelly had been impeded in the area.Another chance was spurned on the stroke of half time when McDermott’s cross found Morgan who fired over from ten yards. Glengad had the first chance of the second period when McDermott saw his header beat Lynch but cleared off the line by Bowen.The point replied and David Healy had a free kick saved by McLaughlin.

But again the home side levelled after Joe Doherty ‘s corner fell to Shaun Cavanagh whose effort was blocked but Jude Harkin pounced to fire high past McCole.Just before the break Shane McColgan for the visitors fired narrowly over the bar.There was plenty of action in the second half with Ronan Doherty and Andrew Peoples off target with headers for the home side before Doherty had an effort deflected onto the post by McCole.At the other end Alan Clarke fired wide while Darragh McConway had a shot saved by Bovaird. The best chance of the half fell to the home side when Doherty raced clear but McCole advanced to smother at his feet before Peoples saw a header clip the bar.Redcastle too had chances with substitute Evan Craig racing clear but seeing his chip drift wide before Ronan Hoy also fired narrowly wide.Donegal Signs Knockout Shield  Carn Res                              3          (Win 6.5 on penalties)Carrowmena FC                 3 Carn got the first chance on 8 minutes when Dayton Cooke released Paul Stevens on the right-wing and he rounded the defender and squared it for Dion Diver but he fired wide.Carrowmena then took the lead when Sammy Bredin made a great run on the right-wing and rounded the defender and squared it for Gerard Gill who shot low to the left corner of the net from 10 yards.Carrowmena almost doubled their lead on 17 minutes after Ryan McLaughlin released Bredin on the right-wing and after rounding the defender his shot was parried away at the post by Kyle Harkin.
