Phoenix extends All-Star

first_img He signed the contract a month shy of his 23rd birthday as the Suns gathered for media day preceding the start of their training camp in Tucson on Tuesday. The 6-foot-10, 245-pound power forward played out of position at center and dominated opponents last season for the high-scoring Suns. Amare Stoudemire, who jumped from high school to stardom in the NBA, signed a five-year contract extension Monday with the Phoenix Suns worth about $73 million. The extension kicks in after this season and has an opt-out clause after the 2009-10 season. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 Known for his breathtaking slam dunks and uncanny quickness, Stoudemire averaged 26 points per game, fifth-best in the league, as a key member of a Phoenix team that won an NBA-best 62 games. Stoudemire, the No. 9 pick in the 2002 draft, won the rookie of the year award over Yao Ming in 2002-03 and has improved each season. He averaged just under 30 points a game in last year’s playoffs — 37 against Tim Duncan in the Western Conference finals. The Chicago Bulls dealt center Eddy Curry to the New York Knicks on Monday, ending a contentious negotiation in which the team insisted the restricted free agent take a DNA test over a heart problem. In making the announcement, an obviously frustrated Bulls general manager John Paxson did not specify what the Bulls got in return and he did not field questions. The Bulls had insisted that Curry take a DNA test to determine whether he’s susceptible to a potentially fatal heart problem. Curry, who missed the final 13 games of the regular season and the playoffs after experiencing an irregular heartbeat, balked, saying it violated his privacy. center_img “I would never put a player on the floor in a Chicago Bulls uniform if I didn’t do everything in my power to find out all the information that was available,” Paxson said. “You can debate genetic testing ’til you’re blue in the face. But from what I know, from what I’ve learned over the last six months, that test could have helped us determine the best course of action.” Curry, drafted out of high school, averaged a career-high 16.1 points in his fourth NBA season. The standoff stemmed from a benign arrhythmia that caused Curry to miss the final 13 games of the regular season and the playoffs. Several prominent cardiologists cleared Curry to play, but Barry Maron, a world-renowned specialist in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, suggested the DNA test. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Joshua Aims for First World Title

first_imgTweetPinShare0 Shares LONDON, ENGLAND – Rising heavyweight phenom Anthony Joshua finally gets his chance to fight for a world title, facing IBF titleholder Charles Martin on April 9 in Joshua’s native England (Martin is from Missouri).Martin won the IBF title, which was vacant because champion Tyson Fury refused to fight the organization’s top contender, Vyacheslav Glazkov, instead opting to give Wladimir Klitschko a rematch after having beaten him last year for the lineal heavyweight championship (as well as the belts of various other “alphabet soup” organizations).Martin, 23-0-1,  beat Glazkov for the IBF crown.Joshua has had a short but spectacular career to this point, knocking out all 15 of his opponents in 7 rounds or fewer.At 6’5 with an 82-inch reach, Joshua has a slight advantage over the 6’5 80-inch reach Martin.An interesting component will be how the orthodox-stanced Joshua will fare against the southpaw Martin.Though Joshua is the oddsmakers’ favorite, some think he took the Martin fight too soon, because though he is a tremendous talent with a great combination of speed and power, Martin may be a bit too experienced for Joshua at this early stage of his career.last_img read more

Nebraska defeated Fresno State 43-10. (Photo by Steven Branscombe/Getty Images)“There’s No Place Like Nebraska” is a Huskers’ fight song and somewhat of a mantra for the Lincoln, Neb.-based college football program. When it comes to the academic success of its players, the mantra is true. No program has produced more Academic All-Americans than the Huskers. With school’s APR scores set to come out today, Nebraska coach Mike Riley felt it was appropriate to boast about his team’s success off the field. Is being an Academic All-American important to you? Look no further than Nebraska! #Huskers— Mike Riley (@Coach_Riley) May 27, 2015It’s always nice to see program’s putting an emphasis on the student part of being a student-athlete.last_img read more
