Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Clippers’ Paul George: ‘If I make shots, this series could be a little different’ For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory Game 4 photos: Luka Doncic, Mavs shock Clippers in overtime In the preseason, Rivers identified rookie Terance Mann as a point guard, even though the 23-year-old played the position sparingly at Florida State. But the 6-foot-5 Mann has spent the bulk of his time recently with the Agua Caliente Clippers, the team’s G League affiliate.Walton, who was signed to a non-guaranteed one-year minimum salary on the final day of training camp, has been solid in limited time. Through 19 games in his second NBA season, he’s averaging just 2.6 points and 1.1 assists per game but shooting 50 percent from the field and 45 percent from 3-point range.After he got his first NBA start and played 22 minutes in Saturday’s 140-114 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies, finishing with three points, two assists and committing three fouls, Walton didn’t play at all in Sunday’s win against the New York Knicks.And so the point guard question remains for the Clippers – who reportedly are, along with the Lakers, a preferred landing spot for Darren Collison. According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the veteran point guard from Southern California wants to return to the NBA after his abrupt retirement this summer.For now, “our system is definitely not a point guard system,” said Rivers, whose team is 26-12 that way. “But that is the one spot, if you have one, you absolutely know who the point guard is.” What the Clippers are saying the day after Luka Doncic’s game-winner tied series, 2-2 Leonard, a dynamic wing, and Lou Williams, a reserve guard known for his scoring, both are averaging career-highs in assists, with 5.1 and 6.3 per game, respectively. And George, a forward, is averaging 3.7 assists per game, the second-highest tally he’s had.But all three are averaging career-highs in turnovers too, with Leonard (3.3), Williams (3.2) and George (3.3) combining for almost 10 of the Clippers’ average 15.8 turnovers per game – 25th most in the NBA.“The turnover thing, going into the year without having a true point guard, I thought we may be a little higher in turnovers,” Rivers said. “That has happened. I don’t like turnovers. … I would take away the turnovers if we could, I just don’t know if we can.”Rivers said Sunday he was proud of Patrick Beverley’s development as an in-game manager, revealing that he’s started to give the fiery guard his play sheet – something he’s previously shared only with established point guards Rajon Rondo and Chris Paul.“He’s the one guy who knows what we want to run the most,” Rivers said, allowing, however, that Beverley is “not a pure point guard, but he’s doing his best.”Rivers appreciates Landry Shamet’s efforts as ball-handler, but he doesn’t think the second-year sharpshooter’s strengths are best served at point, despite his success playing the position at Wichita State.“Putting Sham at the point guard, that’s tough for him,” Rivers said. “But when we have so many guys out, you have to put him there and just hope that he can figure it out. We need him on the floor, we don’t have any other guard on the floor right now and that’s been very hard for him. (It’s) a little bit unfair for him, but I give him credit. He’s tried his best to do it, so from a coach, you like that.”Related Articles “What Doc does, he puts guys in position to succeed and play to their strengths. So what may, on the board, look like, ‘Oh, we lack this position,’ well, maybe he’s gonna make those adjustments and it won’t be there.”Harrell and Zubac have proved themselves offensively (the Clippers are getting 33.4 points per game from the center position, third-best in the NBA) and defensively (they’re allowing the ninth-fewest points in the paint in the league, at 45.4).But what about the other big question: Are the Clippers, even in this era of positionless basketball, missing an experienced point guard?The Clippers went ahead and fully guaranteed Derrick Walton Jr.’s one-year contract on Tuesday, according to a league source. In Rivers’ eyes, the 6-foot Walton is “one of the only guys on our team that you can actually call a point guard,” but he’s inexperienced and has played sparingly.Otherwise, the bulk of playmaking duties have gone to non-point guards. Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum Shortly before the season, the Clippers toed the starting line projecting confidence about the race before them.Sure, there were questions. Would the Ivica Zubac-and-Montrezl Harrell combination be an effective enough deterrent in the post? Would a team with no true point guard be able to best exploit the franchise’s new super-talents?Even as they staked out a time-will-tell position, the Clippers were understandably optimistic about their roster of plucky returners-plus-Kawhi Leonard and Paul George.“Without ever having the benefit of seeing these guys play, (Coach) Doc (Rivers) does a ton of preparation with his staff,” Lawrence Frank said. “But we’re gonna learn a lot over the first two-and-a-half, three months of the season. You can look at a roster and say, ‘I think the holes are gonna be here or here,’ and you could be completely off.
This week, the team at Mavericks in Letterkenny are sharing secrets from the barbershop floor in their guide to getting the haircut you actually want:We got a lot of guys asking us about last week’s column in the shop, in particular, a few guys asked what is the worst thing that a client could do sabotage their own hair cut. So, we decided to share these few tips with you this week.Over Doing It It is a given that some men will have a small bit of product in the hair. However, the Mavericks cannot come up for a reason to have half a tin of Dax in the hair the day that a man plans to get his hair cut. A small bit of product will dissolve with a bit of water, but too much product creates all sorts of problems. Hair doesn’t lift in the correct manner, scissors do not cut it properly, trimmers get blocked and push the hair instead of trim it. The bottom line is, your hair cut can not possibly be as good as what it should be. It is ok for Mavericks as we can wash our clients hair conveniently if required but a lot of barbershops are not kitted out professionally and do not have the facility of washing hair. Great haircuts at Mavericks Barbershop LetterkennyIn DisguiseWant to distort your hair before you get it cut? Then wear a cap before you go into the barbershop. If your hair has a dent in it right around your head then there is the chance that this track will still be around your head after the cut and it may be slightly longer or shorter than it should be! Again, an experienced barber will know how to deal with this, but do you want to take that chance?Mavericks Barbers LetterkennyPoor PostureA barber uses the floor several times through out a hair cut. They cut , create sections, draw fade lines, etc parallel to the floor and this is amongst other techniques. If your posture is poor, then your head will not be in the correct upright position. So gents shoulders back, and looking straight ahead, eyeballing yourself in the mirror.A Moving TargetA 3 year old not realising that if he wants a good hair cut he should stay still is one thing, but when a grown man is all over the shop and he has asked the barber for a skin fade which is 40 minutes of real detailed work, then he doesn’t have much of a chance of nailing it to a moving target. Getting a great haircut requires effort from both the client and the barber, these are a few pointers for the client, but none is more important that what was referred to in last week’s column, clear communication between the barber and client resulting both parties, 100% clear on the desired outcome.Mavericks Barbershop LetterkennyA few honourable mentions to other things that a client should not do while the barber is carrying out some detailed work on you:😉 Jump up to celebrate your team scoring a goal on a Saturday afternoon😉 Turn you head to look at him every time you talk 😉 Sneeze😉 Cough or ANY MOVEMENT when getting a cut throat shave😉 Nod your head to a good tune in the barber shopThe Mavericks are always on hand and will give you their advice on what is possible for you, so call in and treat yourself to the best haircut a man can get.

Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… frederic lardinois Related Posts Tags:#Browsers#Google#news#web 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Within the next two weeks, Google will release a new development version of Google Chrome that will include the ability to sync bookmarks between different computers. As Tim Steele, a software engineer on the Chrome team explained in a message to the Chrome developer group, the synchronization will be managed through a Google account. Changes in one install will be reflected in another Chrome instance in real time thanks to the Chrome team’s use of the Google Talk servers as the messaging backend for this service.For now, Google will only sync bookmarks. In the long run, the Chrome team also plans to sync other data types, including browser history. In the announcement, the Chrome team did not specify if passwords will be synced as well. With Weave, Mozilla Labs currently offers a very similar feature, though Weave hasn’t made it into the default install of Firefox yet. In the past, Google also offered a synchronization plugin for Firefox, but the company discontinued this service in December 2008. Link to Chrome OS?Of course, we can’t help but wonder if this work isn’t also being done in preparation for the upcoming release of the Google Chrome OS. A lot of the work to get Chrome to sync between different instances is being done at the backend. If Google could get its netbook OS to seamlessly sync with applications on the desktop, then that would be yet another selling point for the Chrome OS.Privacy?Chances are that you are already storing your search history on Google’s servers. With Chrome’s synchronization feature, however, you would also store a complete record of all of your comings and going on other parts of the Internet on Google’s servers. Mozilla Weave encrypts your data before it is synced with Mozilla’s servers. In today’s announcement, the Chrome team did not talk about encryption, though we would be surprised if Google didn’t implement client-side encryption as well. For some users, though, giving even more information to Google – even if it is encrypted – may turn out to be a deal breaker. Get the Dev Channel Release (if you dare)For now, only users who have installed Chrome’s developer version and are subscribed to the Dev channel will see these new features. The Chrome Dev channel is the most frequently updated, cutting-edge version of Chrome, but these version are also far less stable than those in the more mainstream Beta and Stable channels. If you would like to switch to the Dev channel, instructions for installing this version of Chrome can be found here. Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting
The voice of reason is a governor. It’s job is to tell you what you can’t believe, what you can’t do, what you can’t have. It reminds you that you are unreasonable when you think beyond what is “normal.”The voice of reason provides limits. It limits your imagination. It limits your vision. It limits your desires. The voice of reason reminds you that you aren’t supposed to exceed the “natural” limits that have been established by others, by custom, by nature.The voice of reason likes averages. It doesn’t like things too hot, that would mean that things are going too well, and at any minute the roof could cave in. It doesn’t like things too cool, either. That would mean things aren’t going well enough, and that means that any time the bottom might fall out. The voice of reason loves mediocrity.The voice of reason tells you to withhold your gift. It tells you to hold your tongue, not to speak, not to draw attention to yourself, not to stand out. If you are unreasonable, you will open yourself up to criticism. People will judge you, and other people’s judgments may hurt. It reminds you how many other people just like you sacrificed their gifts, choosing the reasonable path of the average.But the voice of reason lies. None of what it recommends is reasonable.It is unreasonable to live a life of quiet desperation. It is unreasonable to deny your imagination, the bigger vision you see for yourself, your hopes and your dreams.It is unreasonable to be average, to withhold your gifts to avoid the critics and the cynics. It is unreasonable not to make the difference that only you can make.It is unreasonable not to go all in on your life’s work, your life’s dream, your mission, and your purpose. Why does the voice of reason believe you are here? As a casual observer?The voice of reason lies. Nothing it recommends is reasonable. Get the Free eBook! Want to master cold calling?

About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Moyes praises Man Utd vice-chairman Woodwardby Freddie Taylor2 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveFormer Manchester United manager David Moyes has praised the club’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward.Moyes had the chance to work with Woodward for less than a year, after he was fired before the end of his first season in charge of the club.The Scotsman was picked by Sir Alex Ferguson as the latter’s successor, but he could only manage to lead United to seventh place in the league that season.”I found him [Woodward] fine to work with, I’ve got to say. He was really new to the job,” Moyes told talkSPORT.”One of the big losses I found was probably David Gill leaving Manchester United, because he was the one who worked with Sir Alex.”And with both Sir Alex and David Gill going it was new for myself and Ed Woodward going in.”
