Curry ‘family reunion’ has special start at NBA All-Star Weekend

first_imgMOST READ Sonya sank a one-handed, half-court shot — that she took underhanded — to beat the clock and help her three-person team topple squads led by her NBA sons and one led by her daughter in a family shootout during a dedication of a refurbished Charlotte community center.And she let her sons know about it. Sonya raced around the court after the ball went through the basket as fans in the crowded center cheered. She danced, taunting her sons as they looked on in amazement while her teammate and husband applauded.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissSPORTSCoronation night?SPORTSThirdy Ravena gets‍‍‍ offers from Asia, Australian ball clubs“I was trash talking with the kids and I said, ‘me and your pops, we are going to take this thing from you.’ And they were like, ‘whatever, whatever,” Sonya said.She joked that she now has “bragging rights” as the family’s best shooter, holding up a black-and-gold championship belt with the letters “SC” on it. “I got the belt ,” Sonya proudly proclaimed.Dell said Sonya practiced the shot last week and “she told me she was going to make it — she called it. I was shocked, surprised, amazed.”So was Stephen, the Golden State Warriors two-time league MVP who said, “Unbelievable — absolutely unbelievable.”Seth couldn’t hold back laughter knowing he just got beat by his mom, a former volleyball player — and knowing he’s probably not going to hear the end of it.The Portland guard said afterward “that was a lucky shot, but she knocked it down on the big stage.”ADVERTISEMENT Japeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for Ginebra Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next He said he was just happy he didn’t lose to his brother.The shootout featured that included the Curry children and their families. Each team had to make a layup, a foul shot, two 3-pointers from the corner and the top of the key and, finally a half-court shot in the timed event.It was part of a busy day of All-Star Weekend activities for the Currys in their hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina.After the community center dedication, Stephen headed 30 miles north to Davidson College, where he cheered on his alma mater against St. Joseph’s. It wasn’t just polite claps or nods after good plays, he really got into it.At one point he tipped over a beer under his seat. He gave an incredulous look and pumped his fist when 6-foot-10 freshman center Luka Brajkovic threw a no-look over-the shoulder pass to teammate KiShawn Pritchett for an easy layup. And he clapped to “Cotton-Eyed Joe” at the halftime show featuring kids performing a Wizard of Oz dance routine.And after Davidson won Stephen jumped into the student section and posed for a picture with the Davidson men’s swim team — who were wearing nothing but Speedos.The crowd roared with delight, chanting, “MVP, MVP, MVP.”While Stephen was taking in the Davidson game, Seth was heading downtown to meet with old friends and have some dinner.Stephen will join younger brother Seth in the 3-point shootout Saturday night at the Spectrum Center and then play in his sixth straight All-Star game Sunday. Seth is planning on taking in a high school game at his alma mater, Charlotte Christian, on Saturday and Dell is being honored at the NBA Legends brunch on Sunday.The fact that Seth is involved makes it extra special.

Stephen has his own guest list — separate from the rest of the family — and hopes to limit it to 30 people. The immediate family is staying in downtown hotels, which Stephen said feels “really weird.”Some of the out-of-towners will stay at Dell and Sonya’s house while the couple bunks downtown so they can be close to family.Dell was overjoyed that all of his kids — and their children — made it back to Charlotte.Stephen is married to Ayesha and the couple has three children. Seth has a child with Callie Rivers, the daughter of NBA coach Doc Rivers. And the players’ sister, Sydell, who recently married Stephen’s Warriors’ teammate Damion Lee, a two-way player with Golden State, is in town, too.Dell was beaming about the improvements to the Carole Hoefener Center, which was partly funded by the Currys.“What makes me the proudest is that all the kids were here,” Dell said of the dedication, “everyone contributed and long after the All-Star game is gone kids in Charlotte will still be able to use the community center.”last_img read more

Man gets 16-to-life in killing of UCSB student

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREStriving toward a more perfect me: Doug McIntyre On June 24, 2006, he had just been in town a few days, returning from the University of California, Santa Barbara, where he was a straight-A student studying ecology. He was walking to his car, after visiting friends at an apartment complex a few blocks from his mom’s house. Davila had been at the same complex looking for a friend. It’s unclear how they encountered each other but shortly after midnight, the two exchanged words. Then Davila, carrying a knife he had brought with him in his pocket, stabbed De A’Morelli in the chest several times, slashing his lung and puncturing part of his heart. Davila took off in a car with a friend who had been waiting nearby. De A’Morelli staggered through the streets bloody before somebody stopped to help him. He died 20 minutes later. With tears welling in her eyes, the mother of a slain 26-year-old university student offered her son’s killer forgiveness and asked for his redemption before a judge sentenced him this morning to 16 years to life in prison. “I do not hate you. I feel a great sorrow. Not one but two lives were lost on that night – David and yours,” Catherine Freeman told Lawrence Davila, the 22-year-old Canoga Park man convicted of stabbing her son, David De A’Morelli, six times after a chance encounter. “A light went out of the world when you took our David, so I say to you that you must become a light.” Davila fidgeted, tapped his leg and even rolled his eyes during the sentencing hearing in San Fernando Superior Court, where half-dozen relatives and friends recalled De A’Morelli as a thoughtful and generous young man finding his path in the world. And though Davila’s attorney’s said it was an act of self-defense, Davila never called police. “My son David did not deserve to suffer the horror of being savagely stabbed while simply walking to his car one night,” wrote his father, Richard De A’Morelli, in a prepared statement for the court. “He did not deserve the indignity of being left to die on a dirty sidewalk.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Artesia’s Roman era a painful one for Gladiators

first_imgWhen Artesia High quarterback Steven Roman graduates in the spring, perhaps Gahr coach Greg Marshall should consider being there in person to witness it because nobody in the area figures to be happier to see him leave. Roman scored on a 9-yard run with 52.6 seconds left in the fourth quarter and Antwon Hamilton intercepted a pass with just ticks left on the clock to help seal the win as the Pioneers came from behind to beat the Gladiators 28-24 in a nonleague game at Artesia High on Friday night. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week “He decided he was going to do it all by himself at the end and nothing was going to stop him from scoring a touchdown. He’s a great player.” The score was 14-14 at halftime before Gahr scored 10 points in the third quarter to take a 24-14 lead on a 32-yard field goal by Edson Portillo and a 28-yard run by Treymayne Barra, who finished with 218 yards on 25 carries. But in the fourth quarter, the Pioneers (5-2) cut the Gladiators lead to 24-21 with 6:40 remaining on a 14-yard run by Derrek Wright. On its ensuing possession, Gahr (4-3) had a chance to put Artesia away but on fourth-and-5 from the Pioneers 41-yard line, Marshall elected to punt. Artesia took over at its own 15-yard line with 3:41 left and 10 plays later, Roman, who threw for 191 yards and two touchdowns, ran it in himself on a quarterback draw for the game-winning score. Last year, the Gladiators led 24-0 before Artesia rallied to win 28-24 in the final moments. “If we play 11-minute fourth quarters instead of 12, we would have beaten them two years in a row,” Marshall said. “But we’re not going to make excuses, they beat us and their quarterback did a great job. “I just wanted to keep my feet moving until I got in the end zone,” Roman said. “The most important thing is that we never gave up, even when we were trailing 24-14. We continued to play hard and in the end, our hard work paid off.” Junior running back Lequan Lewis also had a big day catching the ball for the Pioneers, hauling in four passes for 120 yards and a touchdown that came on an 85-yard pass from Roman in the second quarter. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

One Loo or Two? Google Maps Adds Properties in U.K.

first_imgRelated Posts 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… mike melanson Google is determined, one way or another, to convince the Brits that its Maps and Street View are worth more than simply violating their privacy. Today, the ever-cataloging and image-capturing company has added a new feature to its U.K. version of Google Maps – “properties” listings. According to this morning’s announcement of the new feature in the Google LatLong Blog, a survey conducted just before Google Street View launched in the U.K. found that a fifth of respondents had used Street View in their househunting efforts. The feature was originally launched in the U.S., Australia and New Zealand in July 2009 and now comes to the U.K. with “hundreds of thousands of listings from PropertyLive, Zoopla, Ezylet, SmartNewHomes, Vebra, Property Pal, Spicer Haart, Countrywide, and Zoomf.”Bing Maps recently added similar features using Oodle, and our remaining contention with services such as this is that they often aggregate content from various listing services and then users end up with a thousand map points plotted to the center of a city, as lazy landlords simply put down the central zip code. To that end, Google offers a guide for realtors and real-estate professionals on why and how to use Google in listing properties online.As with any other like feature on Google Maps, the listings on its real estate overlay (or properties, if you’re in the U.K.) automatically update and refresh when you zoom and pan around the map. Listings are also filtered according to user setting, meaning you can choose how many bedrooms, sale or rental price, and any other number of standard characteristics. So, would you like one loo or two?center_img Tags:#Google#Location#Mashups#news#web A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostinglast_img read more
