    Getty Nets star Ben Simmons. Ben Simmons hasn’t played a game all season. He didn’t suit up for the Philadelphia 76ers due to mental health reasons and a trade request and hasn’t even practiced with the Brooklyn Nets since being acquired in the James Harden trade. Simmons suffered a back injury while restarting his basketball activities following the Harden trade. The Nets have kept his ailment pretty quiet, but two of the best insiders in the NBA have some news. According to Ramona Shelburne and Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Simmons is dealing with an irritation of the L-4 disc of the lower spine. While that may not sound good, Shelburne and Wojnarwoski are reporting that Simmons could play in a “couple” of games before the regular season ends.

    DRACUT (CBS) – Daniel Plante of Dracut has always had an interest in music and he recently added to his skills after visiting his local library with his son. “I noticed that there were a bunch of things that you could just sign out and one of them was the ukulele. I had been talking to my wife, saying I’d love to try the ukulele and I thought, why not?” he told WBZ-TV. The instrument is just one of dozens of “things” available to check out of the Dracut Library. “Things like a telescope, sewing machines,” said library director Christine Muir as she showed us around the collection. The money to buy the items came from a grant from the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection. Many of the items are for one-time use, like a scanner to digitize film negatives or a car code reader that will tell you why your “check engine” light is on. The car code reader available at the Dracut Library. (WBZ-TV) “It’s definitely not something that you have to own long-term, so it’s great to...
    Robert F. Kennedy Jr., nephew of former President John F. Kennedy and son of former Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, is facing backlash for telling a crowd of anti vaccine mandate protesters that life was like 'Hitler's Germany.'  Kennedy and Informed Consent Action Network founder Del Bigtree were among big names who addressed the rally Sunday morning. Around 20,000 people were expected to attend the demonstration, with reports of the crowd ranging from several thousand to the Daily Caller's 30,000. 'Americans want democracy back, and this rally is a demand by Americans to get their democracy back,' Kennedy said of the rally, according to WUSA9.     Kennedy compared the plight of the vaccine-adverse to that of Anne Frank on Sunday, saying that 'even in Hitler's Germany, you could hide in the attic like Anne Frank did.' RFK Jr. was shellacked on social media for his take, including one tweet from the Auschwitz Memorial. Robert F. Kennedy Jr. speaks at a rally and march protesting vaccine mandates on the National Mall in Washington DC on Sunday. Kennedy used an analogy to the Holocaust...
    Which celebrities have the most loyal fan bases? Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber & 8 More Celebrities Who Make Millions Off Their Merch DETROIT — The power has seemingly shifted to the Eastern Conference after decades of supremacy on the other side, but the looks of it aren’t as expected. The defending NBA champions aren’t even at the .500 mark, the Brooklyn Nets have dealt with the biggest — or second biggest — drama in the league and the Philadelphia 76ers take turns flip-flopping with Brooklyn for said title. Miami, Chicago and Washington are leading the conference, and even though the season is barely 10 games young, each can be a party crasher in its own way. Luckily for the contenders who’ve been held in high esteem, nobody’s running away and hiding. The warts are clear and present, and the solutions are available but not easy to acquire. Brooklyn Nets Ideally, the Nets were designed to be the most explosive offense this side of the Curry-Durant Warriors, with Kyrie Irving and James Harden being such supreme shot creators that defense...
    Getty Images James Harden, Kyrie Irving, and Kevin Durant of the Brooklyn Nets As the NBA prepares to kick off the regular season, all of the commotions have surrounded the vaccination status of Kyrie Irving. It was confirmed by Shams Charania of “The Athletic” that Irving is one of the NBA’s unvaccinated players. This came after he was absent from the Brooklyn Nets‘ first home practice on October 5. There are just under two weeks to go until the start of the regular season and Kyrie’s eligibility still hangs in the balance. Irving’s reluctance to get the vaccine has the Nets’ brass uncertain about his future with the team. “The Brooklyn Nets remain unclear on All-Star guard Kyrie Irving’s ultimate intentions to get vaccinated and have made no decision on whether the organization will accommodate him as a part-time player this season,” ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted on October 5.“There had been previous optimism Irving would get vaccinated and fulfill local mandates, but that hope is waning and Irving’s continued resistance to vaccination has Nets preparing for the possibility...

Under his “New York Robbery” cap, Durant’s expression was one of mild contentment, certainly not awe, which explains how a human being can score 49 points in 48 minutes of a must-have playoff game without much help. This was Tuesday night inside a Barclays Center Zoom room, where Durant showed up in a hooded pullover with the words “The Audacity to Dream” set against the letters “USA.” His Brooklyn Nets coach, Steve Nash, had already completed a Zoom presser that found him looking and...
    Getty Kyrie Irving drives past Collin Sexton of the Cleveland Cavaliers. Brooklyn Nets star guard Kyrie Irving has been an exceptional player for the greater majority of his career, and so far, this season has been no exception. Even after some personal problems at the beginning of the season, he’s still performing at an extraordinary level, something that has come to be expected of him. Irving is currently the Nets second-leading scorer, with 27.5 points per game to go along with 4.8 rebounds and 5.7 assists on the star-studded squad. Irving has shown that he is still one of the greats in today’s league; According to his head coach, Steve Nash, he’s even better than one of the greatest guards in NBA history.Steve Nash Thinks Kyrie Is More Skilled Than Allen IversonIn an interview with Michael Scotto of HoopsHype, the former Phoenix Sun claimed that Kyrie was better than Philadelphia 76ers legend Allen Iverson. “I think Allen was special in his own right,” Nash said to Scotto via HoopsHype. “I think Kyrie is more skilled. I think Allen...
    Steve Nash has often eschewed calling timeouts, saying he wants his Brooklyn Nets to play through things themselves and problem solve on the floor. On Sunday, Kyrie Irving took matters into his own hands during Brooklyn’s 123-122 loss to the Wizards at Barclays Center. Brooklyn’s defense was in disarray and getting torn up on switches by Washington’s Rui Hachimura. The forward scored three Wizards baskets and assisted on the fourth in a run before Irving called a timeout with 7:35 in the third. Asked to elaborate on the seeming disconnect between the bench and the players, Irving pushed back against the question. “Disconnect? I don’t know what you’re talking about,” he snapped. “This is basketball. It’s pretty simple.” Kevin Durant claimed not to have noticed the whole affair. “I didn’t even see that,” said Durant. “But Steve knows when to call timeouts. He knows what he’s doing over there. We all trust him. He’s only going to get more comfortable as time goes on.” Durant and Irving were doing their own on-court coaching. Irving appeared to counsel...
    New Nets coach Steve Nash revolutionized NBA offense as a point guard with the Suns, earning every accolade except a championship while playing under Mike D’Antoni. Now, Nash is looking to finally win that title, with his former mentor now his assistant. Hiring D’Antoni to be a team’s head coach would normally be considered a success, but adding one of just nine men to win multiple NBA Coach of the Year awards as an assistant coach is a coup. It also implies Nash is doubling down on the Seven Seconds Or Less style he and D’Antoni created in Phoenix from 2004-08. Six Seconds Or Less, anyone? “He’ll do what he needs to do, and he’ll figure it out. He’ll work hard. He works as hard as anyone I’ve ever seen in basketball to get ready every day,” D’Antoni said the day of Nash’s hiring. “Even when he broke his leg in L.A. [in 2012 while playing with the Lakers], no one outworked him, and he’ll do the same as a coach. And he knows basketball, so it’s a pretty good...
    The Brooklyn Nets have a terrific roster built to compete for the NBA championship next season. Moreover, they hired Steve Nash as the coach, which could very well be the final piece in the puzzle. The two superstars, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, will lead the team from the front. Additionally, they had both been NBA champions prior to teaming up in Brooklyn. One might wonder, what is the expectation from the team next? Nash spoke about their expectations in a recent interview. “We’re playing for a championship. I don’t want to say anything less than a championship is not a success because you never know what happens in life. You never know the way the ball rolls. Fortune is a big part of winning an NBA championship. “But we are playing for a championship and are going to build accordingly, and we’re gonna frame everything do in the lense of ‘is this a championship characteristic or is this worth championship quality?’ “But other than that, are we growing? Are we striving? Are we pressure-testing? Are we continually asking of...
    A picturesque white-steeple church surrounded by lush trees in Keysville, Virginia—pop. 832—held a worship event last month that local health officials have “unequivocally” deemed a superspreader of the novel coronavirus. But don’t hold your breath for an apology. Though the gathering at Emmanuel Bible Church sickened at least 42 parishioners and church staffers, and caused a surge that forced the local school district to delay its transition to in-person instruction, it seems there are few, if any, regrets. “Even after speaking to many that have been sick, it has been said that it was one of the best revivals ever,” the church said in a statement on its Facebook page. It’s a story that has played out all over the nation in recent months, as “pandemic fatigue” and a zeal for in-person worship has sparked outbreaks—and exasperated public health officials. In Keysville, the trouble started the weekend of Sept. 20, when Emmanuel Bible Church held the three-day revival services, welcoming parishioners up its brick steps into a burgundy-carpeted sanctuary. In the Facebook post about the incident, the church confirmed that...
    The 1996 draft class is one of the most talented classes in NBA history. Allen Iverson, Kobe Bryant, and Steve Nash were the three best players out of it, and they had some of the best on-court battles during the 2000s. But once they retired and were off the court, only Kobe stood out. During his appearance on JJ Redick’s podcast, Nash spoke about how Kobe handled retirement so gracefully. “I was impressed as much of anything about how Kobe was handling retirement,” Nash said. “He obviously won an academy award. He was an incredible father, advocate for young players, and especially the WNBA players. “So for him to kinda move so fluidly into retirement, at least from a distance, I was incredibly impressed. Not something when you know how competitive he is, that would you definitely thought, he’s gonna transition easy. I really admired him for the way he appeared to be transitioning and (his death) is just a great tragedy and loss.” Kobe Bryant: Legend both on and off the court During his playing days, Kobe...
    Steve Nash saw the questions coming as clearly as he used to see passing lanes. In his first appearance as Nets coach, he was fielding questions about white privilege and whether he jumped the line of qualified assistants. And replacing black interim coach Jacque Vaughn at the helm of a star-studded contender, despite never spending a second as an assistant coach, he owned it. Despite saying he didn’t feel the notion of white privilege specifically applied in this case, he admits it’s a problem — one he wants to do his part to help fix. “Well, I did skip the line, frankly,” Nash said. “But at the same time, leading an NBA team for almost two decades is pretty unique.” So is being handed a contender despite not coming up the ranks. Yes, there have been others who got immediate head coaching opportunities — Jason Kidd, Isiah Thomas, Doc Rivers, Mark Jackson and Derek Fisher, not to mention Nash’s Golden State boss Steve Kerr. Nine of the 16 hired without any experience since 1978-79 are black. Steve NashGetty Images But...
    Steve Nash knows what folks are saying — both the obvious (he has never coached in any capacity before) and the more serious (his hiring by the Nets brought claims of white privilege to the surface, levied at the man who hired him, Sean Marks). He probably also knows that Nets fans who might already be skeptical of his hiring as head coach might today also be feeling a little buyer’s remorse now that Billy Donovan, a deserving finalist for NBA Coach of the Year this year, has parted ways with Oklahoma City. And Donovan, as it happens, grew up in Rockville Centre, a mere 18 miles away from Barclays Center as the crow flies. All of that is fair. All of that is fine. He runs away from none of it. “I did skip the line, frankly,” he said during a Zoom press conference alongside Marks, the two men alone with a camera lens inside the HSS Training Center in Industry City. Said Marks: “When we have talked, Steve always wondered, ‘What does life after basketball look like?’ It...
    Sean Marks pulled a fast one. Now, Brooklynites will wait to see if he picked the right one. In a stunning move that virtually no one saw coming, the Nets’ general manager tabbed former two-time NBA Most Valuable Player and Hall of Fame point guard Steve Nash as the team’s new head coach ahead of the most anticipated season in franchise history.
    The Brooklyn Nets have named two-time NBA Most Valuable Player Steve Nash as the team's new head coach.   Nash, who retired as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers in 2015, has no previous head coaching experience, but that did not deter Nets general manager Sean Marks, who praised the longtime point guard's 'instincts for the game.' 'After meeting with a number of highly accomplished coaching candidates from diverse backgrounds, we knew we had a difficult decision to make,' Marks said in a statement.  Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, Nash is a Canadian who grew playing basketball, soccer, and hockey in British Columbia before going on to a collegiate hoops career at Santa Clara   Brooklyn is expected to be better next year with last summer's high-priced free agent acquisitions, Kyrie Irving (left) and Kevin Durant (right), presumably back from injury 'In Steve we see a leader, communicator and mentor who will garner the respect of our players. I have had the privilege to know Steve for many years. One of the great on-court leaders in our game, I have...
    Stonehenge, a Neolithic wonder in southern England, has vexed historians and archaeologists for centuries with its many mysteries: How was it built? What purpose did it serve? Where did its towering sandstone boulders come from? That last question may finally have an answer after a study published Wednesday found that most of the giant stones -- known as sarsens -- seem to share a common origin 16 miles away in West Woods, an area that teemed with prehistoric activity. The finding boosts the theory that the megaliths were brought to Stonehenge about the same time: around 2,500 BC, the monument's second phase of construction, which in turn could be a sign its builders were from a highly organized society. Get Breaking News Delivered to Your Inbox It also contradicts a previous suggestion that one large sarsen, the Heel Stone, came from the immediate vicinity of the site and was erected before the others. The new paper appeared in the journal Science Advances. Lead author David Nash, a professor of physical geography at the University of Brighton, told AFP the...
    The 1996 NBA Draft saw a few noteworthy names coming into the league. The draft class was the 50th to be welcomed into the NBA. Yesterday, June 26, marked the 24th anniversary of the 1996 draft. Along with Kobe Bryant, there were other great players who entered the league through the draft. The Phoenix Suns used their 15th overall pick to select a young Canadian guard. He went on to become a Hall of Famer and his name is Steve Nash.  Nash recently joined Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson on All the Smoke podcast, where he relived his draft and his rookie experience. “Back then if you were a rookie, you got treated like a rookie,” Nash said on the podcast. Steve Nash on getting in through the 1996 NBA Draft  Host Matt Barnes narrated a brief list of talents that we saw emerging from the 1996 draft class. Steve Nash came in as the #15 pick and clearly exceeded expectations. He is one of the four players from his draft class to earn a Hall of Fame status. Here...
