It’s still the sport that I love with all my heart. I put in that heart every single day.”Djokovic, through to the semifinals for only the second time since last year’s Eastbourne International, next meets France’s Jeremy Chardy after he defeated American Frances Tiafoe 6-4 6-4.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownTop-seeded Marin Cilic also advanced with a 7-6 (3) 6-2 win over 2010 champion Sam Querrey.Cilic now faces Nick Kyrgios, who eliminated defending champion Feliciano Lopez 7-6 (5), 7-6 (3).

Spain’s media says ‘ciao’, Italy’s welcomes star Palace OKs total deployment ban on Kuwait OFWs Rondo agreed to a one-year deal worth $9 million earlier this week to suit up alongside James, whose signing hasn’t yet been announced by the Lakers.The veteran point guard is eager to be a mentor to Lonzo Ball, and he sees a chance for immediate success with the thoroughly revamped club. The Lakers haven’t made the playoffs for a franchise-record five consecutive seasons, but Rondo believes they’ll make immediate strides back toward contention for a 17th NBA championship.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone still willing to coach Gilas but admits decision won’t be ‘simple yes or no’“You put any group of players around LeBron James, as he has done (eight) straight times, he went to the finals,” Rondo said. “So my expectations are the exact same thing. Even with the Warriors adding (DeMarcus Cousins) and the Rockets being who they are, I think we fit right up there in the mix. It is early, obviously, and I’m not promising anything, but at the end of the day, I expect to win. Nothing else.”Rondo is a familiar figure to Lakers fans, and not necessarily in a good way. He played a major role for the Celtics when they met the Lakers in the NBA Finals, winning a ring with Boston in 2008 and losing to LA in 2010.

So it’s going to be exciting to be able to just get up, get a couple of easy looks, be able to push the pace in the open court.”The Lakers also announced the re-signing of guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who got a one-year deal worth $12 million to provide a perimeter shooting threat to an offense that could still use more outside shooters.The Lakers haven’t yet announced the acquisitions of James or veterans Lance Stephenson and JaVale McGee during a thorough makeover following the worst half-decade in franchise history. Seeing Rondo on the other side of that enduring NBA rivalry won’t be as weird to Rondo as it might be to some Lakers fans.“Does it feel strange? Um, no,” Rondo said. “My battles with the Lakers were over a decade ago, and none of the players I was battling with are on the same roster.”The 32-year-old Rondo expressed no concerns about playing with Ball, the precocious passer chosen by the Lakers with the second overall pick in last year’s draft. Ball will be sidelined for most of the summer with a torn meniscus in his left knee, but Rondo is eager to work on their chemistry in the fall.“I’m excited to get a player that age and try to help him as much as I can,” said Rondo, a starter for all but small portions of his first 12 NBA seasons spent with five franchises.Rondo sees the Lakers’ potential surplus of ball-handlers as an advantage. He isn’t worried about finding roles for everyone in coach Luke Walton’s up-tempo offense, which is designed to create plenty of offensive chances for every player.ADVERTISEMENTlast_img read more

After a triple-double performance in a sentimental version of the PBA’s “Manila Clasico,” Jayjay Helterbrand laughed at the idea that he is good enough for another season in the pros.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES Quite expectedly, he was the quickest, the scrappiest and the toughest throughout the affair. But the signs were there that comebacks were out of the question.“My knees are now hurting,” Helterbrand said with a chuckle.“I was in awe trying to absorb everything. I didn’t really plan on playing that hard, but I didn’t want to let [the team] down,” he added. “I came out there and I wanted to get that win for them.”“It’s really an honor to be able to play on the court with all the legends. Just the stories I’ve heard in practice, getting a chance to be coached by the legend himself? And be able to play for a good cause? That was fun,” Helterbrand said.“I missed it. I’ll be honest—I missed the energy of the fans and the guys. My first shot was an air ball, and I was like ‘Oh my gosh, what am I doing here?’”ADVERTISEMENT “I don’t think so,” the retired 42-year-old guard said.Helterbrand, who played for 17 years with the league’s most popular ballclub, finished with 21 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds in Barangay Ginebra’s 97-89 victory over Purefoods in the Battle of Rivals classic last Sunday.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissSPORTSCoronation night?SPORTSThirdy Ravena gets‍‍‍ offers from Asia, Australian ball clubsBut there’s an even more important number: 42.
