    NBA In-Season Tournament: Next Steps Ahead for Adam Silver

    In international basketball competitions outside North America, the point differential tiebreaker is standard. This isn’t the case for the NBA, which stirred up some confusion for players. Teams leveraged running up the score in late games. “I’m not ready necessarily to move away from it, but if ultimately there’s going to be a sense, particularly from our American fans, that somehow it is an indication of poor sportsmanship, that’s not a good idea for us to be doing it,” Silver said. Silver is reluctant to make any changes but has been aware of the implications it may pose for the fans. The NBA league office has discussed the addition of…

    Canadiens confirm bad news on star winger

    Canadiens winger Alex Newhook left Thursday’s loss to Florida with a lower-body injury, and it will keep him out for a while.  The team announced that Newhook will miss the next 10 to 12 weeks with a high-ankle sprain. The 22-year-old is in his first season with Montreal after being acquired from Colorado just before the draft in June for the 31st and 37th picks along with prospect blueliner Gianni Fairbrother.  Despite taking a step back with the Avalanche last season, the Canadiens saw fit to give Newhook a four-year contract over the summer, one that carries a $2.9M cap hit; he will still be a restricted free agent at its…

    Best Sunrise Spot In Thailand

    38 The Samet Nangshe viewpoint in Thailand is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen in my travels. It’s also fairly easy to get there by driving from the tourist island of Phuket. This viewpoint overlooks the spectacular Phang Nga Bay, a Thai national park with dozens of small islands. The sunrise at Samet Nangshe is especially nice because the sun rises directly over the bay! You can visit Samet Nangshe viewpoint on a day trip from Phuket and go back in the same day, or you can stay a night or two at the Samet Nangshe Boutique hotel, which has a pool and rooms that overlook the…
