LeBron passes Jordan with 867th straight double-digit game

(AP Photo/Phil Long)CLEVELAND — Still chasing championships, LeBron James caught — and passed — Michael Jordan on one list.James broke Jordan’s NBA record by scoring at least 10 points in his 867th straight regular-season game, a streak the Cavaliers superstar could make nearly untouchable by the end of his brilliant career.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES In Liverpool, Man United sees the pain and path to recovery Detroit’s Griffin has bone bruise, to be evaluated in a week Scarlett Johansson, Sterling K. Brown among SAG Awards presenters James entered Friday’s game against New Orleans sharing the mark with Jordan, one of his boyhood heroes. But with one of his patented two-handed dunks midway through the first quarter, James moved ahead of Jordan, whose streak stretched from 1986 to 2001.During a stoppage in play, James was handed the ball and he received a standing ovation from the sellout Quicken Loans Arena crowd, which included pop superstar Justin Timberlake.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 crownJames last failed to score in double digits on Jan. 5, 2007, against Milwaukee. In the time since, he has won three NBA championships, left Cleveland for Miami and returned, and established himself as one of the best players in league history.At 33, he’s playing as well as ever and next month he’ll head into the playoffs attempting to reach his eighth straight NBA Finals. Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. James can envision a day when his record is toppled.“I think records are always meant to be broken,” he said. “At the end of the day I think a lot of people didn’t believe Mike’s record would ever be broken, so who am I to say that mine won’t be?”James’ record underscores his durability, reliability and scoring skill. And although it may not be viewed in the class as other notable streaks like Joe DiMaggio getting a hit in 56 straight games or Cal Ripken playing in 2,632 straight, the mark is still special.An avid sports fan, James said all of those streaks are meaningful.“They’re all great achievements in their own right,” he said. “You all know Cal Ripken and his ability to be out on the diamond every single day, play that many consecutive games. Joe DiMaggio, every time he went up in a game he was going to get a hit. That’s just production for a ball club. This streak as well, being available to your teammates and being able to put the ball in the hole, I don’t know if there’s one that’s more than another.“They’re all pretty cool achievements in their own right.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next James never set out to break Jordan’s mark, but by staying healthy and being consistent, he moved himself to the top of another statistical list.And with the end of his career seemingly years away, James is poised to re-write history some more.“It’s not like I set out to say that I want to be the No. 1 in scoring 10 points, double digits or consecutive games or whatever that and whatnot,” James said. “But any time like a statistical category comes up and I’m able to accomplish something like that, I mean it’s pretty incredible. It’s been like 11 years that I’ve been able to accomplish this feat so I’ve been able to take care of my body, that’s one, and I’ve been around some great teammates and coaches and two organizations that have allowed me to be who I am, so that’s two.“And just going out and playing for the joy of the game.”To put James’ double-digit scoring mark in perspective, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, the NBA’s career scoring leader, scored at least 10 in 787 consecutive games. Among current players, Houston’s James Harden has done it in 257 games — 410 behind James.ADVERTISEMENT Recto seeks to establish Taal rehab body to aid community, eruption victims Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina View comments Cabuyao City rising above the ashes through volunteerism Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player awardlast_img read more

Union wants legal action against DTL over labour violations

first_img…workers picket for pay increase Following the prolonged stalemate over wage negotiations and allegations of unjust treatment to its workers, calls are being made for the Labour Department of the Social Protection Ministry to take legal action against the Demerara Timber Company (DTL) over labour violations.The disgruntled workers, along with their union representative – the Guyana Agricultural and General Workers Union (GAWU) – staged a picketing on Monday outside of the company’s headquarters in Kingston, Georgetown, in a desperate attempt to call attention to their struggles and shove management into action in relation to their demands for pay increases.GAWU’s General Secretary, Seepaul Narine, on the sidelines of the protest, told  Guyana Times that the timber company must be prosecuted by Government over its continued disrespect for Guyanese employees.DTL workers protest for wage increases“What we believe needs to be done now is the Ministry needs to prosecute them because they are in clear violation of the law and not only violating the law to the detriment of the employees, but a flagrant disrespect to the ministry. I don’t think that the ministry should continue to accept such a situation,” he proclaimed.A handful of workers journeyed from Mabura Hill in Region Ten (Upper Demerara-Berbice) to call on the DTL to engage with their union to conclude its 2015 pay increase negotiations and commence talks for 2016.They complained of being abused by management and earning a paltry salary incommensurate to the cost of living in the country.“The money can’t do. We have our families to look after and transportation cost alone is expensive,” expressed Derrick Toney, one of the employees.The workers, with placards in hand, also called for the removal of the company’s General Manager, Martin Ting, whom they said has done absolutely nothing to protect the interest of his employees.Bilateral negotiations between the Union and the Company reached a stalemate on November 17, 2015 after the Company did not approve any pay increase, but offered a Christmas Bonus of $5000 to each worker. DTL informed that its financial state precluded it from offering a pay rise.Following the impasse, the dispute was next subjected to conciliatory services by the Ministry of Social Protection, Department of Labour.According to GAWU, though a few meetings were held, the company remains unwilling to divulge its financial statements for scrutiny by stakeholders.The workers have therefore grown impatient over the treatment by management and the slow pace of the wage negotiations.They are calling on DTL to return to the bargaining table and favourably resolve the matter since they are committed to continue the protests until their demands are addressed.last_img read more

Mwalala resigns as Nzoia head coach

first_img0Shares0000Nzoia Sugar head coach Bernard Mwalala watches his side during a past Kenyan Premier League match. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaNAIROBI, Kenya, Jul 2- Former Kenyan international Bernard Mwalala has resigned as Nzoia Sugar head coach with immediate effect over what he termed as ‘personal reasons’, a decision he says he took painfully.Mwalala tendered his resignation to the club’s management on Monday morning bringing to an end a hugely successful spell of close to four years that saw him aid the side to return to top flight football. “This is a decision that I made a long time ago and it was only a matter of time. I made the decision due to personal reasons and I will take some bit of time to rest before making a decision on the next move,” Mwalala told Capital Sport.Mwalala helped the side gain promotion to top flight at the end of the 2016 season when they won the National Super League, barely a year after taking charge. He has also seen the side become one of the teams to beat in the top flight.“I am proud of the work I have done at this club both as a player and as a coach. Nzoia gave me the opportunity to be what I am today and I will forever be indebted to them. This was a hard decision to take but sometimes in life, you have to change,” added the coach.Nzoia Sugar FC posing for a team photo before a past Kenyan Premier League matchNonetheless, things have not been rosy for the youthful tactician since the departure of former chairman Yapets Mokua.At some point, Mwalala had said he was resigning from the club but rescinded the decision, but this was always a ticking time bomb. The club has also been facing tough financial times due to the struggles experienced by their sponsors.Time and again, players have gone on go slows protesting lack of pay, something that has hugely dampened the morale of the players.Mwalala has also been quietly frustrated that the club has lost most of its good players without the club making a fight for them and was particularly disappointed at the end of last season when Lawrence Juma left for Gor Mahia while Masita Masuta left for Ulinzi Stars.“We have always tried our best to replace the departed players and I think we did well with that. I leave the club at a good place and hopefully they continue in that same spirit,” the coach added.Meanwhile, Vihiga United have confirmed that ex-Kakamega Homeboyz coach Mike Mururi has joined them with Edward Manoah being elevated to the position of Technical Director.0Shares0000(Visited 4 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Carreon, Castaneda set to take charge

first_imgIt’s anybody’s guess as to what will be going through the minds of Charter Oak High School quarterback Andrew Carreon and Los Altos’ Matt Castaneda around 7 p.m. on Friday night. The two underclassmen will be making their respective first starts in one of the area’s biggest rivalries when the Chargers visit the Conquerors on Friday. Neither coach expects to see anything different from the other on Friday night. Given each staff’s long history against each other, it would probably be futile to try anything new. “Nobody is going to fool anybody here,” Gano said. “We’re going to do the same thing against Charter Oak that we have for the last 11 times we’ve played them. We’re going to go out and try and do what we do best.” Farrar echoed Gano’s sentiments. “We like this game very much because they’re always looking for a wrinkle and so are we,” he said. “They’re a great coaching staff and some of the best compliments I have had in my career have come in this game and it came from their fans.” – Bishop Amat is the top team in the state according to the power rankings at Calpreps.com. The Lancers (4-1) are in the top spot with a rating of 49.2 points. Strength of schedule plays a key role in the ratings, and Amat’s strength of schedule grades out to be the highest in the state. The combined record of Amat’s opponents this season is 18-7. The Lancers’ key wins have come against Damien (ranked No. 19) and Glendora. Mission Viejo is No. 7, despite being 5-0 and owning a win over Concord De La Salle, which isn’t ranked. — Aram Tolegian can be reached at (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2233, or by e-mail at aram.tolegian@sgvn.com. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Carreon, a sophomore, is in his first varsity season. He’s had five tune-ups so far and has shown steady improvement. “We’re always concerned about him, it’s not just this game,” Charter Oak coach Lou Farrar said. “It’s the first time he’s going to see their kind of defense and their alignments. Every week for him is another practicum, except that he goes from quarter to quarter.” center_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Castaneda, a junior, transferred to Los Altos from Bishop Amat last year. Like Carreon, he’s in his first varsity season, but hasn’t looked green at all. “He knows it’s a big game, but so far they’ve all been big for him,” Los Altos coach Greg Gano said. “He’s just kind of a quiet kid, who comes out and plays. I couldn’t tell you if he’s going to be any different because it’s Charter Oak.” Carreon looked like a seasoned veteran last week, leading the Chargers back from a 7-0 halftime deficit against Claremont in a 21-7 win. He threw for all three of Charter Oak’s touchdowns in the second half. “He did come of age in that game,” Farrar said. “In the first half, they came at him with everything and beat him up physically. We talked to him at halftime with a bunch of ice bags on him and said ‘You took there best shot, what do you think?’ “I think that talk really helped him. Last week was good for him, and he’s had a great couple of days.” last_img read more
