Michael Jordan is known for pushing his teammates to be the best — sometimes literally.In ESPN’s documentary series “The Last Dance,” Jordan is shown as a fierce competitor with a desire to win at all costs. His former teammate Steve Kerr has probably the best example of Jordan’s competitive streak. MORE: TV schedule for ESPN’s “The Last Dance”Prior to the 1995-96 season, Kerr described an “undercurrent” of unhappiness between him and Jordan. Kerr was the NBA players union representative for the Bulls, and Jordan and his agent David Falk had an offseason contract dispute that summer against the union. Jordan was also coming off a second-round loss to the Magic the previous season, and the intensity of the drills and practices were a reflection of his frustration.Jordan and Kerr began trash-talking at training camp, according to a 2013 ESPN story. During a scrimmage, Kerr was sick of Jordan’s actions, so he decided to voice his displeasure.”I’m not sure anyone had done that before,” Kerr recalled in a 2016 interview with VICE.Kerr began fouling Jordan, which led to Jordan punching Kerr. The pair got in a few good swings before teammates intervened. Kerr ended up with a black eye.”I was like the kid in ‘Jurassic Park’ who got attacked by the velociraptor,” Kerr told VICE. “[Bulls head coach] Phil [Jackson] came over to talk to me,” Kerr said. “He said, ‘You and Michael have to patch things up. You gotta talk to him and you gotta patch it up.’ I got home and there was a message on my phone, on my answering machine from Michael and he apologized. And it was weird.”In an interview with TNT’s Ernie Johnson, Kerr explained how that fight helped his relationship with Jordan and made both players better.“I feel like I passed the test and he trusted me more afterwards.”@SteveKerr discusses how a practice altercation with MJ helped grow their relationship on #NBATogether pic.twitter.com/yUwghEt513— NBA on TNT (@NBAonTNT) April 23, 2020″I would say it definitely helped our relationship, and that probably sounds really weird,” Kerr said. “I wouldn’t recommend that to anybody at home. … For me in that case, Michael was definitely testing me, and I responded. I feel like I kind of passed the test, and he trusted me more afterwards.” Kerr ended up playing a pivotal role in the Bulls’ second three-peat. Jordan passed to Kerr for the game-winning shot in Game 6 of the 1997 NBA Finals to clinch Chicago’s fifth title.The altercation also helped Jordan. In Jackson’s book “Eleven Rings,” Jordan credited the fight with Kerr for helping him trust his teammates: “It made me look at myself, and say, ‘You know what? You’re really being an idiot about this whole process.'”Kerr explained that the fight wasn’t as bad as it might sound, noting the differences in how practices were run during his playing days compared to the modern NBA.”I think it has to be understood in the context of intense competition,” Kerr said. “One thing that was more prevalent back then than now is the intensity of practices back then. I think we’re smarter now with preserving our players. We don’t have as many practice days now. It’s more about rest and recovery. So there’s not as much competition, and most of that is good. … “[Practices] were a huge part of the Bulls and Michael setting a standard for our play. So practice fights, not only on that team — there were probably three of them during the year on that team — on every team that I played on, late ’80s, early ’90s, there were a few practice fights. There was just a lot of competition, and things would get out of hand. It wasn’t really a huge deal in the grand scheme of things.”Ultimately, Kerr has the utmost respect for Jordan.”What made him a badass was that he wasn’t just a talent,” Kerr told VICE. “It was the understanding of … the work ethic, the game itself, the strategy involved. He got it all; he understood all of it. He was absolutely one of the smartest players I’ve ever played with.”

Powered by Firework Team India’s tour of New Zealand is reacing its closure wit a 2 match Test series starting from next week, and based on the dramatic T20 victory to disappointing ODI defeat, some eyebrows have raised on India’s selected Test squad. Among all the ongoing discussions about the visitors lineup to face the Kiwis from next Friday, a new name is grabbing all tghe attention. Meet Hanuma Vihari, the all rounder from Andhra Pradesh who just landed a stunning century in the pre-series warm up against New Zealand XI!Advertisement Image Courtesy: ANI/BCCIToday was the first of the 3-day Practice Match at Seddon Park cricket ground in Hamilton, and Hanuma Vihari stole the show alongside India’s red ball specialist batsman Cheteshwar Pujara. At stumps, Vihari scored an astounding 101-not out, and Pujara who just fell seven runs short from his ton after losing his wicket at 93.Vihari’s stunning century came off including ten boundaries and three over boundaries. After Prithvi Shaw failed to open up his scorecard and Mayank Agarwal marched off to the pavilion after just a single run, Vihari’s mesmerising performance is providing a stout alternative to India’s selected openers for the upcoming Test series.Advertisement In the post match interview, Vihari said: “As a player, I am prepared to bat anywhere. As of now, I’ve not been informed anything. As I said before as well, if the team requires me to bat wherever, I am ready to bat.”Captain of the Andhra cricket team, Vihari made his Test debut in September 2018 against England. He landed an impressive half century as a debutant in the fifth match of the series, scoring 56 runs.Advertisement He earned his first Test century against West Indies in September 2019, scoring an amazing 111 in the second Test. His last Test match for the Men in Blue was back in October 2019, where he appeared as a middle order batsman in the first match of the South Africa series.Yet to earn his international limited overs call up, Vihari was part of the U19 Indian squad that 2012 Under-19 Cricket World Cup.Except the contributions from Vihari and Pujara, India’s 263-all out came off with the addition of an effort of 18 runs from Ajinkya Rahane.

The meeting had already been animated, at the end of the break, when the Atalanta was going to hit with another of his pecks. This time in the boots of an Ilicic, omnipresent in all the offensive areas, who received the ball, held with the body and before the scarce exit of the Valencian defense placed the ball in the square to put the second before reaching the tunnel of changing roomsIt seemed difficult the second half to Valencia, close to a very painful blow, and more when Parejo still failed to gain control of the midfield. De Roon, Pasalic and Freuler were harassing the captain ché at all times, who was going to see more closely how the Swiss carried another gun at the bottom of the net. It was before reaching the time of shock, when Freuler received without opposition on the front, put it on his right boot and took the ball to the opposite post of Jaume.3-0, all Bergamo squeezing in Milan and the fourth blow that was going to come often, not before without a clamorous failure of Maxi after a great pass from Ferrán taking advantage of Gollini’s mistake. The Atalanta came out quickly against the counter, Ilicic offside let the ball pass and Hateboer stood alone against Domènech. His double and poker on the scoreboard after reviewing VAR for the position of the Slovenian. The lateral arrivals of Gosens and the Dutch, plus the constant unmarked movements of Pasalic, Papu and Ilicic had already left Celades mortally wounded.Cheryshev brought hope on the first ball he touchedBut the Champions League has moments of hope and these would be opened by Cheryshev. As soon as he jumped into the field, by an exhausted and guttural garrison, the first who touched the Russian from the front, crossed his shot to beat Gollini and give wings to Valencia. A dream of getting closer on the scoreboard that could have grown if Maxi Gómez was right to face, but the Uruguayan in a game of aim to forget, failed to the point that he left the ball behind so that Cheryshev again had the so much that this time the Italian goalkeeper stopped.20 minutes left and with the entry of Gameiro Valencia went for all. Without the success, yes, that had all the Atalanta during the game. Ferran and Gayà hurt by the bands, Gasperini was replaced with the entry of Zapata and Milanovskyi and the clash was rushing his last moments between Valencian center and Bergamass cons.All wrong, since the round of eighths had already taken much of itself. Where Milan and Inter made their fief a recognizable fort in Europe, now they are those of Bergamo who dream of reaching unthinkable goals in the old continent. Valencia, for the time being, has not been able to do so with them and is anxious for Mestalla to take them on volandas to turn around a more than complicated tie. Because this Atalanta is offensively a pecking machine that the ché have been able to see first hand. He has to catch up with Cheryshev and discount three weeks.DATA SHEET– OUTCOME: Atalanta 4-1 Valencia (Hateboer 15 ‘and 62’, Ilicic 41 ‘and Freuler 57’) (Chershev 66 ‘).– ATALANTA: Gollini, Tolói, Palomino, Caldara (Zapata 74 ‘), Hateboer, Freuler, De Roon, Gosens, Pasalic (Tameze 91’), Papu Gómez (Malinovskyi 80 ‘) and Ilicic.– VALENCIA: Jaume Domènech, Wass, Mangala, Diakhaby, Gayà, Kondogbia, Parejo, Soler, Ferrán, Guedes (Cheryshev 65 ‘) and Maxi Gómez (Gameiro 72’).– REFEREE: Michael Oliver. He showed Hateboer yellow in the Atalanta.– STADIUM: San Siro. Valencia must dream, more than ever, with a miracle in Mestalla. All after that in the first leg of the eighth Champions League he was beaten from San Siro by an Atalanta that showed once again that he has a unique offensive gunpowder (4-1). The goals of Hateboer, double, Ilicic and Freuler were fatal for a team that paid expensive absences in their defense and grabs the loophole that opened Cheryshev with his goal.Bergamo was a deadly trap for Valencia. No San Siro, no. Because Atalanta transferred its goalscorer efficiency from Serie A to the Champions League to overwhelm a cadre that paid expensive absences due to injury, more in some unusual centers (Mangala and Diakhaby) who never knew how to detect the pair of Ilicic and Papu Gomez Gasperini again gave a tactical lesson and his people left a very touched Valencia, which at times did not appear in the Lombard city.Initially placing Pasalic by Zapata, the Italian coach reinforced the center of the field to nullify Parejo’s dominance and in turn provide his attackers with more freedom of movement. His plan went perfectly, as he ran the 15th minute when Domènech had already made the stop of the day in a hand in hand with Ilicic and Papu Gómez had warned of his power in a foul from the front. However, the third time was the charm.In one of the usual two against one of the Bergamasks in the band, Papu put the center, Gayà arrived late to his mark and Hateboer only had to push the ball to the bottom of the net. The first to confirm that those of Celades seemed the beginners in this type of games and the debutants in eighths a machine with the spirit of Inter or Milan.Guedes cheered the game before Ilicic left it frozenIn those meetings the match continued, with Atalanta going one after the other with his entire team at the pressure of a Valencia who could not find Guedes and Ferrán. But it was to begin to appear these and the visitors find the occasions before an Italian painting that has little of catenaccio and much of suicide in defense. It was the Spaniard, what an appearance hers this season, the one that hit the wood in the first clear ché, and then the Portuguese made one of the rides that both yearned for in Valencia and on his Maxi pass only being stopped by the Lombard defender , first, and its centrochut brush the wood, then. Hateboer, double, Ilicic and Freuler were deadly to the chéCheryshev opened a slight hope with his goal as soon as he left the field Photo: Reuters

The Guyana Police Force (GPF) has recorded a 61 per cent increase in vehicular accidents for the year. This is according to Traffic Chief Dion Moore in a recent interview with the Government Information Agency.According to Moore, the traffic task force has been reintroduced to curb accidents, pointing out that the use of cell phones while driving and inattentiveness are among the reasons for accidents.“Our main focus will be to catch, capture driver who chose to drive above the prescribed limit, speeding in areas where there are traffic lights, breach of traffic lights control signals, driving using a cell phone as well,” Moore explained.The reintroduction of the traffic task force is expected to address these concerns along with other traffic violations, adding that the task force, which will consist of Police ranks including inspectors, will be conducting enforcement in all divisions.Using cell phones while driving is “a soaring issue”, Moore added. However, effectively charging persons for this violation is difficult for policemen. Officers first have to recognise the offence but many drivers contest using their cell phones with the Police.“A lot of persons when they see the police, upon recognising the police, they’ll drop the phone in the vehicle and remain in the sameTraffic Chief Dion Mooreposition that they were at and they will try to contest with the police that they were on the call,” said Moore.However, the Police have been assisted by surveillance cameras that are installed across the city, Moore said. “We do find a lot of cases coming out of the CCTV cameras and we will continue in that regards,” he pointed out. The cameras have also assisted Police with bringing charges to drivers who breach traffic lights.The task force is also expected to assist in curbing these violations, along with the cameras whilst operating between Fridays to Mondays. “We find most of the accidents occurring during that period and a lot of these drivers are found above the prescribed limit of alcohol,” Moore told GINA.Meanwhile, Moore pointed out that there has also been a 50 per cent increase in fatal accidents. There has also been an increase in minor accidents by 21 per cent. There was a reported 60 accidents for this year compared to 40 during the same period last year.While Moore identified driving under the influence as the major cause for a lot of the accidents, it was speeding that was responsible for most fatal accidents as well as inattentiveness on the roads was identified as a cause of fatal accidents. A total of 12,161 persons have been charged so far for speeding, Moore added.The Traffic Chief said everyday enforcement, coupled with education awareness across the country, will be used to decrease traffic accidents. “We’ll work along with the stakeholders, the National Road Safety Council and other organisations to see how best we can reduce accidents,” Moore assured.The traffic department will be soliciting youth organisations and vocational training programmes over the August holiday to conduct educational programmes on road safety.

WASHINGTON – Sen. Tim Johnson is reading news clippings and starting to do some office work from the hospital, almost two months after suffering a life-threatening brain hemorrhage. “At this point, he has requested more contact with office and is looking for updates from staff,” his office said in a statement Friday. Spokeswoman Julianne Fisher said the South Dakota Democrat is starting slowly. “We do not anticipate him back (in the Senate) for several weeks,” Fisher said. “We are bringing work to him rather than him coming to us. His first priority still is rehabilitation.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Johnson has been undergoing physical, occupational and speech therapy since he was transferred to rehabilitation from intensive care at George Washington University Hospital last month. He recently began to read and speak in full sentences, according to statements from his doctors. Part of Johnson’s therapy has been to deal with weakness on his right side. Doctors have said Johnson showed that weakness when he arrived at the hospital Dec. 13. He was rushed to the hospital after becoming disoriented during a phone call with reporters and underwent emergency surgery hours later. He was diagnosed with arteriovenous malformation, a condition that causes arteries and veins to grow abnormally large, become tangled and sometimes burst. Johnson was sedated and on a ventilator for several weeks. He was upgraded from critical to fair condition Jan. 9. The senator is making decisions about his health care and expressing opinions on his daily activities, the hospital’s chief of rehabilitation, Dr. Philip Marion, said in a statement released by Johnson’s office.
Football fans were raving about a star performance as Real Madrid beat Manchester City 4-1 in their pre-season clash in Australia on Friday afternoon, but it wasn’t who you might think.Not Ronadlo, not Bale, not Sterling, but Germany midfielder Toni Kroos.The 25-year-old left Bayern Munich last summer as Bundesliga, German Cup and world champion, and quickly plugged the gap left by Xabi Alonso in a crucial central role at the Bernabeu.While Real ended last season trohpyless, it was a decent campaign for the World Cup winning ‘architect’, who earned high praise on social media for a sensational assist to set up goal scorer Cristiano Ronaldo.Watch the footage below…on repeat…all day!Real Madrid claimed the International Champions’ Cup as goals from Karim Benzema, Ronaldo, Pepe and Denis Cheryshev sealed an emphatic win against City.Yaya Toure scored the Blues’ only goal from the penalty spot, but there was worrying signs for controversial summer signing Fabian Delph, who was stretchered off after just 20 minutes.*Cough* karma *cough* 1 Real Madrid playmaker Toni Kroos launches a pass to Cristiano Ronaldo (far left)
NEW YORK (AP) Despite the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina, and by hundreds of tornadoes in the South and Midwest in just the first few months of this year, many small-business owners keep stalling when it comes to getting their companies prepared for a disaster. Carol Chastang, a spokeswoman with the Small Business Administration, said disaster preparedness should be part of a company’s business plan from the start, but many owners never get to it because “they’re concerned with the day-to-day operations of the business, keeping the clients happy.” Without disaster planning, “you really stand the risk of losing everything that you’ve worked for,” she said. Disaster preparedness once meant buying property and casualty insurance and making your physical plant less vulnerable to weather, fire and other catastrophes. That is still important, but proper planning now includes ensuring as much as possible that your company can get back into operation as soon as possible. And, that if it can’t, that your expenses and loss profits will be covered. Arranging for secure data storage and buying business-interruption insurance two very simple tasks are often overlooked. It’s not enough for a small-business owner to put a company’s customer data and financial ledgers on tapes or CD-ROMs such storage devices are often put in a “safe” place right in the office. But what if there’s a Katrina-like flood, or a fire that destroys your office overnight? The answer is to make the investment in backing the data up in a remote storage facility; Chastang suggests choosing one at least 100 miles away. And, as some business owners discovered after Katrina, they needed to have their applications stored in a remote location as well. Without that step, it took them much longer to access and use their information. Business-interruption insurance has saved some companies from foundering after a disaster, but Chastang noted that many owners don’t bother to buy it. This type of insurance covers lost profits and operating expenses that must still be paid even when a business is shut down. The interruption doesn’t have to come from a natural disaster; an extended power outage can also threaten a company’s viability. Business interruption insurance may or may not be part of a business insurance package you buy from a broker. You need to ask about it when you purchase insurance to cover any physical losses from a disaster. And, on the topic of insurance, remember, you need to buy separate flood insurance, and depending on the kind of business you’re in, you might need special insurance, such as a policy food purveyors buy to cover losses from food spoilage during a blackout. Disaster preparation, of course, is much more complicated. Owners need to figure out in advance where they might set up temporary quarters if it turns out their own premises will be unusable for some time. They need a system for reaching employees after the disaster has occurred. They need to think about how they’d operate a business if they can’t get employees together a situation many New Orleans businesses faced as their workers scattered to far-off places. They need to think about back-up plans, too if Plan A doesn’t work, what is Plan B? Putting a comprehensive disaster plan together can be daunting, and that’s another reason why some owners procrastinate. The best solution is probably to delegate the planning to an employee or independent contractor who can draw up a plan for you. There are resources on the Internet to help businesses formulate plans. The SBA’s Web site has a disaster preparedness section at www.sba.gov/beawareandprepare/business.html. It contains the SBA’s own checklists of things you need to consider in creating a plan, plus it has links to the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s site, which also has preparedness information, and a link to the Institute for Business & Home Safety Web site. At the IBHS site, you’ll find a downloadable toolkit called Open for Business that includes a comprehensive list of considerations to be made in preparing for a disaster, and forms that you can use in putting your disaster plan. You can link directly to it at www.ibhs.org/business(underscore)protection. Open for Business asks the kinds of questions a business owner needs to consider; careful disaster planning means reviewing all aspects of your business and making sure you know how you’ll proceed if the worst happens.
