Your Las Vegas Summer League Awards

The biggest obstacle to Year 2 of Sam Hinkie’s PhilaTankia plan is certainly a healthy Nerlens Noel. Noel blew out his knee in February 2013, was drafted by the Pelicans with the sixth pick, then traded to the Sixers. In a showing of abundant care for the player’s long-term health, and a dearth of caring about winning actual basketball games, he was lovingly swaddled in bubble wrap and placed carefully in Hinkie’s desk drawer. And, hey, looking pretty good on both counts. The Sixers went 19-64 last season, landed Joel Embiid — another injured big, this time with superstar potential — and a fully rested Noel has been a summer league force. Nerlens played three games in Orlando and two games in Vegas, averaging 13.4 points, 5.6 rebounds, and 2.6 blocks per game, and generally looked like a ready-made defensive destroyer. His offensive game can sometimes resemble the flailings of one of those used-car-lot air dancers, but he’s somehow made it work, all while displaying a surprising passing vision from the post. Memo from Sam Hinkie to Nerlens Noel: Stop being so good right now.

HINKIEEEEEEEEEEE! Taking Stock of the Sixers Draft Rumors

+

Despite Hinkie’s clandestino machinations, the rumor mill has been coughing up Sixers-related gossip. After all, they have seven picks, a stash that includes the third selection, the 10th selection, and five second-rounders. Philly may not make the biggest splash on draft night, but it’ll control much of the ebb and flow.

England should play like Liverpool - Paul Scholes

+

"It would be refreshing for England to adopt Liverpool's attacking mentality," said Paul Scholes. "That means four - and possibly five - Liverpool players in the starting XI." "The thing I admired most was the swagger of their play and how they terrorised opponents, which reminded me of United at their best." "I'd definitely start with Gerrard, Sturridge, Henderson and Sterling," said Scholes. "The question mark is Johnson at right-back."

Evan Mathis on Michael Sam, legal weed

''NFL players shouldn't judge Michael Sam based on his sexuality but some guys will. MLB players shouldn't have judged Jackie Robinson based on his skin color but some did,'' Evan Mathis said. ''Whether or not the NFL is ready for it, it needs to happen. There are still people on this Earth who lived through the prohibition of alcohol and the Civil Rights movement. They can look back and reflect on how primitive those times were. ''Current generations will look back at marijuana prohibition and gays having to fight for equal rights and think how primitive those times were.''

Fulham v Liverpool in doubt due to London Underground strike

+

Fulham statement read: "The club has concerns over the potential impact that the strike may have on the ability of its safety staff to attend the ground in sufficient time and numbers to ensure that it is able to open the ground and effectively operate it, from the time that the gates are open to the public until the departure of all supporters." "If the proposed action is still undetermined at 15:00 GMT on Tuesday, and the club cannot guarantee enough staff are available to attend the ground in sufficient time and numbers, then the club would not be able to comply with the terms of its safety certificate and the fixture would be postponed and rescheduled for a future date."
