Brayden McNabb Elite Jersey
Here he was, in Mobile, Ala., on one of those mid-December nights when the dampness and the cold infiltrates deep into the bones. Despite his extensive experience on the road, Accorsi, somehow, was underdressed.
I’m sitting in the stands, I’m thinking, ‘How many scouts are at this dopey bowl game and they wouldn’t put me in the press box,’鈥?Accorsi recalled in an interview with The Post.
Fellow Heat lifers Alonzo Mourning and Juwan Howard each came over to him as he worked on his knees and stopped for a conversation. Wade will be joining them as Heat emeriti soon enough. Always welcome around the team, always a part of the family … once their playing careers were over.
Ethan Westbrooks Jersey I asked him why he was wrapping his own knees in ice. The Heat have plenty of trainers for tasks like that. Wade laughed and said, I like doing this myself.
After all, how many more times would he wrap those knees in ice after a practice? No, if these are indeed the last days Authentic Kwon Alexander Jersey of his Basketball Hall of Fame career, Wade is determined to do everything exactly the way it should be done.
Which is how he approached Monday’s game against the Sixers. The Heat had brought him back for games just like this: down in a playoff series, needing a win at all costs and desperate for the type of calming, veteran leadership the three-time NBA champion can provide.
Think about the 2016 draft, during which a video of Laremy Tunsil smoking marijuana from a gas-mask bong happened just as the process was getting started, forcing teams at the top to scramble on the fly in an effort to decide whether to draft him or to not draft him. This time around, teams had from the moment their decision-makers woke up this morning until the teams are on the clock to come up with a plan for proceeding.
It allows the teams to conduct more research, to speak directly to Allen about the tweets, to spend time trying to figure out who leaked the information and why, and ultimately to decide whether to take him off the draft board or to lower his position on it.
Before those decisions are made, owners surely will be involved. While many (if not most . . . if not all) owners find a way to get involved without appearing to be involved, this gives them a much more clear opening to ask questions, drop hints, and/or issue mandates. As a practical matter, it provides the owner with cover for pushing the needle toward a player the owner wants, if the owner previously was inclined to not push for Josh Allen.
Regardless, there’s now much more time for these activities to occur. So if someone did this on purpose, they should have waited until much closer to the outset of the draft in order to create maximum chaos.
