and Sutherland both findi

  • 09 Jul
    导出博客文章Dwyane Wades wife feels betrayed. Her stunned husband, Miamis favorite son,
    finds himself somewhere between hurting and haunted. And warrior legend Pat
    Riley is wounded, having morphed with his fan base from The Godfather to Tony
    Montana in a way that feels reckless and bloody. Something so big and strong
    exploded at the center of what used to be their basketball family, and now they
    all limp away from each other with the scars.There was no good way to do any of
    this without conflict and blame. None. The Miami Heat got the breakup wrong
    because there was no good way to get it right. Maybe letting Wade go was a good
    business decision, and maybe it wasnt. Maybe it was a good basketball decision,
    and maybe it wasnt. But it was, no maybe about it, a terrible emotional
    decision. And thats where interests clash and people get hurt in this kind of
    collision, at the intersection of sports as a business and sports as a
    relationship.Champion Bill Belichick will let players go coldly a year too
    early. You just saw what happened when the hijacked Lakers let champion Kobe
    Bryant go a year or two too late. The Heat landed somewhere in the middle of
    those two extremes, as if there is ever any right place to land when breaking up
    what used to feel like love, and now everyone involved feels hurt and damaged by
    the iciness of it all. We dont want to be reminded that these things are
    literally transactions. We want to keep having our romantic, candlelight dinners
    on the floor of the bank.It is very easy to have good relationships when
    interests are aligned, but you dont really find out about love and loyalty until
    they arent. The Heat-Wade marriage felt like a honeymoon for more than a decade,
    aligned interests as the winning glue, but this transaction wasnt loving at the
    end, as evidenced by all the fractured trust and the thudding finality of the
    heartbreaking exit. Wade and the fan base were considering things that are
    priceless, such as nostalgia, while the Heat were doing the calculator math on
    future basketball value that you must do as stars age in a salary-capped
    ecosystem.It makes LeBron James, power broker and paradigm shifter, all the more
    breathtaking with the clarity of retrospect. He Pat Rileyd Pat Riley before Pat
    Riley could Pat Riley him, flying the old warrior across the country for a cold
    courtesy meeting as a legendary pawn. That has to hurt Wade all the more today,
    that his mercenary friend cost him $10 million and was right about loyalty in
    sports largely being a lie disguised as a fairy tale.Ultimately, Miami made
    enough of an effort to appear like it was making enough of an effort. Riley
    didnt get where he is doing negotiations with his heart. So the breakup had to
    kinda, sorta feel like Wades choice when swallowing more pride didnt seem like
    much of a choice at all to this proud icon, public relations an awkward mask for
    all the blemishes that had developed in the private relations. Nearly $42
    million? A lot of us would like to be insulted like that. But if the Heat really
    wanted to keep him, they obviously would have found a way to keep him. Instead,
    they made a fair and reasonable offer, offering even more than they probably
    would have liked because of the emotion and the public relations and the fan
    base and the past and goodwill and reputation and that statue that will go up
    one day. And then they watched other franchises start valuing Wade more than the
    one that should have valued him the most. And watched Tyler Johnson, with all of
    five career starts, get offered $10 million guaranteed more than Wade.The Heat
    likely didnt want to deal with two more years of unhappy, disrespected, hurt
    Wade. They would have, but only at their price. Perhaps a smitten man will
    tolerate a divas behavior in her prime. But patience might grow thin in a more
    superficial relationship once the beauty queens age no longer disguises her
    flaws. And these two sides couldnt agree on much of anything at the end. Not on
    who put together the Big Three. Not on how much the sacrifices were worth. Not
    even on how to make a damn phone call.You know how it is sometimes before the
    worst breakups. The fights arent really about the fights; theyre about all the
    resentments collected on the way to the fights.Wade thinks he, his talent and
    his relationships built the Big Three. But he also told people in 2009 that
    James would never, ever leave Cleveland to come to Miami, and Miami cleared the
    cap space for the possibility of James anyway. Can they both be right? Wade
    couldnt figure out why he was always the one making the financial sacrifices.
    The Heat can counter that those discounts also helped Wade ... and that they
    never requested those discounts of him ... and that they paid for themselves
    with winning and endorsements ... and that James, Chris Bosh, Goran Dragic,
    Udonis Haslem, Shane Battier and Ray Allen also gave back dollars (and even
    Hassan Whiteside offered up a chunk of contract for the possibility of Kevin
    Durant). Can they both be right? Wade is reportedly hurt because Riley never
    once reached out to him by phone during these past few weeks; the Heat are hurt
    because disgruntled leaks kept springing from his camp for two years and too
    much of the repairing dialogue had to go through his many agents. Can they both
    be wrong?Relationships are important, people, Wade tweeted in the middle of
    negotiations, about the time he realized that this one was no longer what he
    once thought it was. Wade didnt trust Riley with his money anymore. That is
    clear now. The Heat would have liked to use his Bird rights to keep working with
    Wade and compensate with the possibility of a one-year, $37 million max payment
    as a gold-watch parting gift a few years from now. But Wade obviously didnt
    believe that was ever coming, or he would have done what discounted Dirk
    Nowitzki and Tim Duncan have wink-wink done with their employers in exchange for
    having some control over the roster. When Wade is done being classy and
    professional in public, maybe well find out where and how this trust broke.Riley
    coined the phrase the Disease of Me in his best-selling book The Winner Within.
    He might have discovered the illness, but he is not immune from it. He has an
    earned ego, too. He is about doing his job, no matter how cutthroat it must be.
    Ask his protégé Van Gundys. It is Rileys way or the highway, and sometimes
    loyalty can be a one-way street on that highway. Rileys résumé is bejeweled, but
    it now has the blemishes of losing James and Wade. The first could be blamed on
    James; this one wont be. Together, they are damning. And, given how cold this
    business can be, a messy fight with Bosh over his medical issue and salary-cap
    space might be next. These past six years, the rise and fall, are going to make
    for one hell of a 30 for 30 in a decade.Rileys daughter knows her father is
    hurting today. He has always been a philosopher-poet moved by writing and music.
    He owns more than 2,000 vinyl records. But she sent him a song he hadnt heard
    Thursday -- Inner Ninja, a happy tune by Canadian rapper Classified -- to help
    her father heal. She really knows the old man, and she knows the game that is
    his lifes work, and she knows that his game is a business, and she knows how
    that business can wound. Here are some of the lyrics:I read the rules before I
    broke em I broke the chains before they choked me out Now I pay close attention
    Really learn the code I learned to read the map before I hit the road Hey, yo, I
    know you never heard this before But Id rather lose a fight than miss the war I
    go hard and I aint makin up no excuse Im overdue, I dont do what Im supposed to
    do Cause you can think about it, man, were supposed to lose It aint all picture
    perfect, ocean views Hey, yo, Ive been high and Ive been real low Ive been
    beaten and broken but I healed though So many ups and downs, roughed up and
    clowned We all got problems, but we deal though Im trying to do better now, find
    my inner peace Learn my art form, and find my energy When my backs on the wall,
    I dont freeze up Nah, I find my inner strength and I re-up Never dwell in the
    dark cause the sun always rises But gotta make it to the next day Its a feeling
    that you get in your lungs when you run Like youre running outta air and your
    breath wont come And you wheezing, gotta keep it moving Find that extra (uhn)
    and push your way through it I climbed the highest mountains I swum the coldest
    seas There aint a thing Ive faced thats been too much for meIt is a really nice
    song. The godfather who runs the Heats family business vows to keep fighting.
    But he read the rules before he broke them, and he learned the code, and he
    knows the basketball business aint all picture perfect, ocean views, even though
    he and Wade went from climbing the highest mountains to now swimming the coldest
    seas. He knows this, too:Letting Wade go might turn out to be a mistake.But it
    sure as hell cant be considered any kind of accident.This story by Dan Le Batard

    . Uniteds eighth defeat of a wretched campaign means
    Liverpool, which currently occupies the fourth and final Champions League place,
    could go nine points clear of its fierce rival by beating West Bromwich Albion
    on Sunday. Charlie Adam scored both of Stokes goals at Britannia Stadium either
    side of Robin van Persies equalizer, with a miserable day for seventh-place
    United capped by first-half injuries to centre halves Jonny Evans and Phil Jones

    . Ashley Youngs cross was inadvertently headed by
    Chester into his own net in the 66th minute, allowing United to claim a third
    straight league win. "We had to dig deep with our fighting spirit and weve done
    that," United striker Wayne Rooney said. SNOQUALMIE, Wash. -- By the time
    Bernhard Langer made the turn in the final round of the Boeing Classic, he was
    five shots out if the lead. At one point Sunday he was tied for 14th after not
    finishing lower than 13th in any tournament this year.A few hours later, Langer
    had outlasted Kevin Sutherland and Woody Austin in a playoff and was celebrating
    his fourth PGA Tour Champions victory this season and 29th overall on the
    50-and-over tour.I blew tournaments when I had a lead and Ive come from seven
    behind, so you just never know, Langer said.Langer made a 3-foot birdie putt on
    the first hole of a playoff with Austin and Sutherland to win the Boeing Classic
    for the second time. A day after his 59th birthday, Langer birdied the par-5
    18th in regulation for a 5-under 67 to match Austin and Sutherland at 13-under
    203 at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge. Austin also had a 67, and Sutherland shot 64, the
    low round of the week.It took a special stretch for Langer to recover from a
    shaky front nine where he needed a few lengthy par putts to stay on the edge of
    contention. Langer went out in 1-over 37, but played the back nine in 6-under
    30, also making birdies on Nos. 10-13 and 15.When he gets hot with that broom,
    Austin said in reference to Langers putter, you cant beat that broom.Langer tied
    Lee Trevino for second on the career victory, still well behind leader Hale
    Irwin at 45. Langer also won the Boeing Classic in 2010.Langer took advantage of
    Austin and Sutherland both finding bunkers on the 18th in the playoff.
    Sutherland ended up in a bunker off the tee, while Austins second to the parr 5
    found a greenside bunker.dddddddddddd. Langers second shot landed 10 yards short
    of the green and he nearly chipped in for eagle before making the birdie putt to
    win.You need to be precise and have the nerve and play the golf course the way
    it needs to be played, Langer said. Theres still a little bit of life left in
    me.Gene Sauers, the second-round leader and U.S. Senior Open winner two weeks
    ago, shot a 72 to finish a shot out of the playoff. Sauers started his day with
    two straight birdies to reach 14 under. But he struggled on the back nine,
    bogeying three of the first five holes and allowed the chase group to catch up.
    Sauers was still in contention until making bogey at the 17th after his tee shot
    came up short. Sauers made birdie at the 18th to finish alone in fourth.While
    Langer rolled through the back nine, Austin was hot on the front nine going out
    in 32. His first mistake of the round came at the 15th when he went for the
    green in two on the par 5 unaware he was in a tie for the lead because
    electronic scoreboards on the back nine were not working. Austin found a bunker
    and ended up making bogey.I would have laid up to the right for sure,
    absolutely, no question, said Austin, who birdied Nos. 17 and 18 to get into the
    playoff.Sutherland started the day seven shots behind Sauers and made eight
    birdies with no bogeys in his round. Sutherland was attempting to win his first
    stroke-play tournament on either the regular or senior tour.
