    HONOLULU, Hawaii - His left eye bruised and swollen shut, Australian golfer Robert Allenby is still shaking over a beating and robbery that left him unable to remember anything except being dumped in a gutter near a park of homeless people. [b]Devon Kennard Jersey[/b] .You think ... that happens in the movie, not real life, Allenby told The Associated Press by phone Sunday. Im just happy to be alive.Allenby posted a photo to his private Facebook account showing a bloodied scrape on his forecast and the bridge of his nose. He said that came from being tossed from the trunk of a car. He said the bruise on his left eye must have come from being beaten in the car.I dont know what they hit me with between the eyeballs, whether a fist or a baseball bat, he said. Whatever it was, it hurts.Allenby missed the Sony Open cut and then went to Amuse Wine Bar in Honolulu on Friday night with his caddie and a friend from Australia. He had been to the bar earlier in the week, thought it was a trendy spot and wanted to try the restaurant. Allenby remembers having dinner, a few glasses of red wine and that was about it.Even after he returned to the bar on Saturday with police and watched tape from a surveillance camera that showed him leaving with four people, he doesnt know who they were or even leaving the bar. Allenby said he has no recollection until getting kicked and prodded by homeless people searching for whatever he had left.Allenby said his wallet, cash, drivers license, PGA Tour badge and cellphone were taken. All he had on him in the gutter were two receipts, the American Express card to pay for dinner that he put loosely in his pockets and a watch.He said the receipt showed that he paid for dinner at 10:06 p.m. Friday, and paid for the wine at 10:48. He said the restaurant closed at 11 p.m.Allenby said he was checked out by the doctors, but he did not have a blood test to determine if he was drugged.I did ask to get a blood test, but they said it was probably out of your system, he said.The Honolulu Police Department did not return repeated calls. TV station KHON2 in Honolulu reported Saturday that the matter was being investigated as second-degree robbery.The image of Allenbys face, which he posted to Facebook, was a jarring image in the middle of a golf tournament. Webb Simpson ran into Allenby went he got back to the hotel last night.I could believe what happened to him, Simpson said.Allenby said surveillance cameras showed his friend Anthony Puntoriero talking to someone in the bar.I think that was a decoy, a distraction, Allenby said. I went to the bathroom, came out of the bathroom and was told that Anthony had left and was downstairs waiting for me. I go downstairs and then, bang! They knock me out and take me six or seven miles away.He said the tape showed one man put a hand on Allenbys shoulder.I seriously dont even remember meeting these people, he said. Thats what is weird. All I know is that I was walking very quietly with them and normal. It didnt make any sense at all.Allenby said a homeless woman told him he was thrown out of the car, but the ordeal wasnt over just yet. He said several homeless were kicking me to see if I was alive, and then trying to steal everything else from me.He said a man who said he was in the Army came to his aid. Instead of calling an ambulance or the police, Allenby said he wanted to go back to the Kahala Resort at Waialae Country Club because I just wanted to be in a safe place.Allenby said he called daughter Lily, who turned 13 on Saturday, and she was sobbing.He said his body felt fine except for the swollen left eye and scrapes on his face. He was hoping to make his flight Sunday night to Los Angeles, and then he would decide if he was fit to play the Humana Challenge next week in La Quinta, California.Allenby has 22 wins worldwide, including four on the PGA Tour, the last one in 2001. He has played in the Presidents Cup six times.Im still shaking, still scared, he said. Its just so surreal, just amazing. How does that happen to me? I went from one area where I could have died to another area where I got dumped and homeless people are trying to mug me even more. Sometimes were all naive. We only think this happens in the movies.. [b]Jahlani Tavai Jersey[/b] . - Their offence is underperforming. [b]Nick Bawden Jersey[/b] .

TORONTO -- NBA players might be enemies on the court, but they are united off it. Thats why the Toronto Raptors say theyll make a gesture of support for the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night over the Donald Sterling controversy. "Were united. . . Youve got to respect that," said Raptors all-star DeMar DeRozan. "Thats the great thing about us. Society is not in that place anymore. You see guys from all different cultures, all different parts of the country, different parts of the world all coming together as one. Comments like that are uncalled for." The Raptors will join a chorus of support from around the league when they host Brooklyn in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference series at the Air Canada Centre. Sterling, the longtime Clippers owner, was banned for life by the NBA on Tuesday in response to racist comments he made. DeRozan wouldnt specify what the Raptors silent protest might entail, but it will likely be similar to Miamis. On Monday night, the Heat ran out of the tunnel in their warmups, huddled at centre court and tossed their white jerseys to the ground. They wore their red warmup shirts inside out, hiding the team logo. Sterlings comments outraged players around the league when the story broke last Saturday. The Raptors were in Brooklyn between Games 3 and 4, and the story was the topic of conversation during the teams bus ride to practice. "We live in a society where were much past that," DeRozan said. "From the comments that Sterling said, were much bigger than that. The game came a long way and society came a long way to take three steps back." Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry said the NBA "is a bbrotherhood. [b]AShawn Robinson Jersey[/b]. " "Its not many of us, its a fraternity, we all support each other," Lowry said. "Thats what makes the NBA and professional sports so special. . . on the floor were enemies but off the floor were all brothers." NBA commissioner Adam Silver also fined Sterling US$2.5 million, in the first moves toward forcing a sale of the Clippers and permanently removing Sterling from the league. DeRozan said that nothing less than Sterlings removal is enough, adding players cant feel comfortable playing for an owner like him. The Raptors were among numerous teams that chimed in with their support of their league commissioner. "As a proud member of the National Basketball Association, we stand strongly in our belief that the comments attributed to Mr. Sterling have no place in our society or sport," the team said in a statement. "Our organization will always work to contribute to a culture of diversity and acceptance in this league and fully support the actions taken today." Raptors coach Dwane Casey said it was unfair to question players about the controversy while theyre in the midst of the playoffs. "Its unbelievable that someone would say that in 2014," Casey said of Sterling. He added: "For me to have to stand here and talk about this when we have a game (Wednesday) night speaks for itself. Im consumed with (Wednesday) night, but still, what happened last week is real and affects all of us." The Raptors and Nets are tied with two wins apiece in the best-of-seven series. The series heads back to Brooklyn for Game 6 on Friday. Game 7, if necessary, will be in Toronto on Sunday.
