3 takeaways from Anthony Davis’ introductory press conference with Lakers “Ultimately, we decided it was best that I use the time in September to return to Philadelphia to acquaint myself with my new teammates and prepare for the upcoming NBA season.”😤🇦🇺 pic.twitter.com/CEmulzcqcR— Ben Simmons (@BenSimmons25) July 16, 2019The 76ers selected Simmons with the No. 1 pick in the 2016 NBA Draft and he’s played a large role in the team’s resurgence as an oversized, do-it-all playmaker. Ben Simmons will not play for Australia in the FIBA World Cup this summer.The 76ers star made the announced Tuesday and will instead focus on preparing for the 2019-20 season with Philadelphia. Lakers GM Rob Pelinka on missing out on Kawhi Leonard: ‘You just don’t look back’ “I wanted to let everyone know that after consulting with my representation, I’ve made the difficult decision to forego playing in the World Cup in China this summer,” Simmons said in a statement he released on Twitter. “I will still be heading back home to Australia to host my camps as well as train and play with the Boomers in the upcoming Exhibition Games.”I’m really excited about the talent we have on the Boomers squad, especially moving close to 2020 where I will be honored and humbled to represent my country on the world’s biggest sporting stage at the Olympics in Tokyo. Related News Philadelphia put together one of the most talented starting lineups in basketball last season, featuring Simmons, Joel Embiid, JJ Redick, Jimmy Butler and Tobias Harris. But its 51-31 record ranked third in the Eastern Conference.The 76ers lost Butler and Redick this summer, but acquired Josh Richardson and Al Horford, giving them tremendous defensive potential. It’s clear they are focused on winning now, and Kawhi Leonard joining the Clippers gives them a better chance of doing that this year, as they fell the Raptors in seven games in the postseason.
One of 13 persons on trial for staging mercenary activities in neighboring La Côte d’Ivoire on Thursday, May 22 denied any involvement.Testifying at Criminal Court ‘D’ defense’s team 12th witness, Isaac Taryon, who has become partly blinded in the eye told the court that “I did not fight any of the wars in Liberia, so why should they accuse me of fighting in La Côte d’Ivoire.”“I don’t know anything about war. Ask any of the warring factions’ heads whether they know me of being part of their groups,” the defense witness furthered. “I’m just a mere farmer, who is a victim just because I am a member of the Krahn tribe.”According to him, during the war in Liberia, he fled and sought refuge in La Côte d’Ivoire, but later returned and resided in Zwedru, Grand Gedeh County.Narrating about his arrest and subsequent indictment, Taryon told the jury that on July 12, 2012, at about 8 p.m., he drove some Ivorians on his motorbike to the PTP’s refugee camp.“When we got to the camp, it was around 8 p.m. and the security at the gate prevented us from entering,” defendant Taryon alleged.“They told us that they were advised by their bosses that nobody should enter the camp after that hour, because state security was arresting people who they claimed fought in La Côte d’Ivoire.”He said, after he was stopped from entering the PTP’s refugee camp he decided to go to a nearby shop to have some drinks.“When I entered the shop, I saw lot of Ivorian refuges there so I decided to offer them some drinks (alcohol). It was while we were drinking, my friends yelled and said the security officers are coming let us run from them,” he stated.“I told them that I was not going anywhere because I was not one of those they were in searching for.”“But, when they arrived at the shop without asking me any questions, they arrested me and charged me of being a rebel.
