his guard’:

latest news at page 1:
    Goran Dragić was already famous in Chicago long before he signed a contract with the Bulls. Infamous might be more accurate. Dragić co-starred in one of Derrick Rose’s top highlights of the 2009-10 season. It was one of those vicious, acrobatic, clutch-your-pearls dunks that raised both the hopes and blood pressure of fans throughout Chicago. Rose caught a pass in transition, racing toward the basket. Dragić — then a second-year guard trying to find his place with the Phoenix Suns — threw himself in the way, but it was already too late. Rose floated toward the rim, pulled the ball behind his head with both hands and posterized Dragić, then 23. “What are you doing, Dragić?” Bulls commentator Stacey King bellowed as Rose’s teammates watched the replay in awe on the sideline. “Did you not get the memo? Derrick Rose can go upstairs.” That highlight has followed Dragić through the past 12 years of his career — and now to his new home in Chicago. “This is my nightmare,” Dragić joked during Bulls media day Monday. Dragić pointed out in...
    Getty Chicago Bulls guard Alex Caruso reacts to a call during a playoff bout with the Milwaukee Bucks. One of basketball’s ultimate icons was lost over the summer when Boston Celtics legend and 11-time NBA champion Bill Russell passed away at the age of 88. To honor the man for all he accomplished, both on and off the hardwood, the league made the decision in August to retire Russell’s No. 6 across the Association. The one caveat to that sweeping move was that players who were already wearing the No. 6 on their jerseys would be given the option to either continue doing so or give the number up voluntarily. For Chicago Bulls guard Alex Caruso, picking out a new number wasn’t going to be a big deal. After a bit of deliberation, he was fine to let the No. 6 go for Russell. When the baller finally went to switch up his kit, though, the powers that be actually forbade him from doing so despite the league-wide retirement. And the reason Caruso was blocked may come as...
    Harry Styles is 'constantly on his guard' and fears being followed by his stalker, who forced their way into the star's London home when Styles was in the house. Stalker Pablo Orero Taragaza, 29, gained access to the grounds of Harry Styles' home in February after being mistaken for a delivery worker. She then broke into the house while the singer was upstairs and fought a construction worker while the As It Was singer was upstairs. Wood Green Crown Court heard the stalker was finally forced out of the home after having to be 'prised' from a wall. Orero previously pleaded guilty to breaching a restraining order in 2019 after she was previously convicted of stalking.

    Getty Jalen Brunson #13 of the Dallas Mavericks drives to the basket against Draymond Green #23 of the Golden State Warriors.  Newly acquired New York Knicks point guard Jalen Brunson has been on a noticeable press run ever since signing a four-year contract worth $104 million dollars to quarterback the Knicks offense.  In late July, Brunson had appeared on “The Old Man and the Three” podcast, a basketball podcast hosted by former NBA player JJ Redick and Tommy Alter. Alter asked if Brunson had gotten a chance to do anything with the other players on the roster. “Not yet, I’ve been talking to a lot of people,” Brunson replied. “I reached out to the guys that played in the Summer League and I would love to get back in the gym with them before the season starts. We’re having something planned. It’s key to hit the ground running,. I don’t want to wait until training camp to start being vocal and somewhat of a leader.” Being able to lead a team both on and off the court, especially...

    Chicago Bulls guard Lonzo Ball is expected to miss training camp as he continues to battle long-term pain and discomfort in his left knee following a January meniscus surgery, according to an ESPN report. The latest setback throws greater doubt about the point guard’s availability for the start of the regular season in October. Ball spent the summer in Los Angeles focusing on rehabilitation after missing the final four months of the 2021-22 season following arthroscopic surgery on Jan. 28. Ball doesn’t have structural damage in the knee, according to the ESPN report, but pain has persisted for more than six months, preventing him from returning to full-speed drills or contact play. The Bulls front office and coaching staff have been vague throughout the summer in detailing Ball’s recovery plans and the likelihood of his availability for the start of the season. Executive vice president of basketball operations Artūras Karnišovas hinted at setbacks during a summer league broadcast in July, echoing concern from general manager Marc Eversley’s account that Ball hadn’t been able to scrimmage in June. “He’s progressing. That’s...
    Getty Miami Heat center Alonzo Mourning (L) and Tim Hardaway (R) celebrate as the New York Knicks Tim Hardaway is finally going to get the well-deserved honor of being inducted to the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame this weekend. The Miami Heat legend will be inducted along with other notable 2022 Hall of Fame inductees, Manu Ginobili, Swin Cash, George Karl, and more.  Hardaway’s legendary career is highlighted by his time with the Run-TMC Golden State Warriors as well as the Miami Heat with Alonzo Mourning. The point guard talked about the circumstances that led for him going to South Beach and becoming a key part of some exciting Miami Heat teams. The point guard was put on the trading block for Golden State and told Heat center Alonzo Mourning to push for a trade for him.  “I told ‘Zo, `Trade for me (and) I’ll get y’all to the playoffs.’ I come from a head strong city in Chicago. I went to Miami and did what I was supposed to do, understood what Riley wanted, and we took off....
    A 20-year-old who went to the optometrist after suffering headaches is in the fight of his life after a 'golf-sized tumour' was discovered behind his right eye.  Security guard Kayden Waddell thought he was just having migraines last June when a Townsville optometrist told him his eye had suffered bad nerve damage - and sent him straight to a doctor.  Since then Mr Waddell has been on a long, painful journey, where two parts of his skull were removed and put back together with 40 staples in a risky surgery. Mr Waddell hopes to beat the tumour with ground-breaking Proton radiation therapy for 'hard to reach tumours' - a form of treatment that is only available in Florida, in the US (pictured, an X-ray of the tumour) Kayden Waddell (pictured) said he was shocked and scared after the tumour discovery Loron Waddell (pictured, with her son) said it was awful to watch him go through the process but said her boy's resilience is 'absolutely amazing' But he hopes to beat the tumour with ground-breaking Proton radiation therapy for 'hard to...
    Los Angeles Clippers guard John Wall has admitted he thought about committing suicide while dealing with the struggles of his past three years. Wall hasn't been on the court for majority of the last few seasons, with the 31-year-old having to deal with a multitude of serious injuries. In a searingly honest interview with the Salvation Army this week, he revealed that the combination of those fitness struggles with some issues in his personal life led to suicidal thoughts.  'I thought about committing suicide. Tearing my Achilles, my mom passing, my grandma dying a year later, in the midst of COVID,' Wall said. 'Me going to chemotherapy, sitting by my mom taking her last breaths wearing the same clothes for 3 days straight.' The Achilles tear Wall alludes to was the final, and perhaps the worst, in a long stretch of injuries dating back to the 2017-2018 season. John Wall says that he was in a dark place and considered suicide while away from basketball “I thought about committing suicide. Tearing my Achilles, my mom passing, my grandma dying a...
    Photos have emerged showing Jennifer Flavin without her wedding ring taken more than a week before she filed for divorce from Sylvester Stallone. The shots come as Stallone, 76, denied rumors that the 25-year marriage ended after an argument about Rottweiler unearthed deeper issues, and instead told TMZ he and his 54-year-old wife 'just went in different directions.' 'We did not end the relationship on such a trivial argument,' he said.  Flavin - who officially filed for divorce on August 19 - was snapped leaving Craig's Restaurant in Los Angeles on August 8 with her ring finger noticeably bare. Witnesses said she was was trying not to be recognized as she left, and that a friend was covering her with her jacket as they walked out.

    Getty Gary Payton II reacts to a play in a Golden State Warriors game. The Golden State Warriors won’t have to wait long before getting a reunion with last season’s surprise star.

    Getty Golden State Warriors guard Mac McClung attempts to drive past Quinton Rose during a summer league bout with the New York Knicks. Summer league games tend to matter less when you’re a championship-level team with a mostly-set roster. As any Golden State Warriors fan worth their salt will tell you, though, the Dubs aren’t your regular title winner. Due to the club’s atypical, dual-timeline approach to roster construction — not to mention the exodus of multiple players from its NBA Finals run — Golden State’s followers and front office alike had plenty to track this time around. And people looking to find a diamond in the rough weren’t left disappointed. Mac McClung, who had cups of coffee with the Bulls and Lakers in addition to being named G League Rookie of the Year last season, quickly emerged as an unlikely summer hero for the Warriors. In seven summer league appearances, he averaged 13.3 points, nearly four rebounds, four assists and a steal per game with shooting splits of 49-46-77. As a result, the Warriors rewarded him with...
    Donald Trump's inner circle was caught off guard after Attorney General Merrick Garland held a press conference calling Trump's bluff and announcing the Department of Justice would move to unseal the Mar-a-Lago search warrant. Federal Magistrate Judge William Matthewman gave Trump's lawyers until 3 p.m. Eastern on Friday to announce whether they would fight the motion to unseal the documents, which Trump himself could have posted online. For analysis, CNN's Wolf Blitzer interviewed CNN chief White House correspondent Kaitlan Collins. "So what the Justice Department did today with that statement, that brief statement from Attorney General Garland, is put the ball in Trump's court, or him to make this decision whether or not they are going to unseal this warrant and let the public see what was included in it that led up to that unprecedented search on his residence on Monday," Collins explained. "Or they could object to it, and try to fight it and lay out why they don't think this information should become public." "That would come several days after the former president and his allies framed...
    Getty Miami Heat guard Kyle Lowry handles the ball during a game against the Milwaukee Bucks. Since being eliminated from the Eastern Conference Finals by the Boston Celtics, the Miami Heat point guard Kyle Lowry’s weight has become a meme almost for Heat Nation. It’s not the first time that fans have pointed out somewhat of a body transformation from the star point guard, an NBA Memes page shared a side-by-side dating back to 2018 of the then Toronto Raptors guard. It isn’t just meme accounts that are mentioning it. Even-Heat team president Pat Riley has commented on Lowry’s weight.  “The bottom line with me and for me as far as hoping you can get the most out of a player,” Riley said. “… You have to be in world-class shape, you just have to be. He’s definitely gonna have to address that and it will be addressed.” One of the reason’s that may have kept Lowry out of the tip-top shape that Heat Culture expects of its players was an ongoing personal reason that kept him off the court...
    Controversial Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King claimed he needed a pricey guard dog for 24/7 security for his family due to the barrage of threats from white supremacists, who he alleges have tried to break into his home and harass his children. On Tuesday, King wrote in a lengthy Facebook post about what his 'life has become.' 'I spend more time each day now thinking about how to keep my family safe than I do doing the actually work I’m called to do,' he wrote.  '⁣So know this, when you see reports about the money it costs to keep me and my family safe, it’s nowhere near enough. Not at all. Not even close.⁣'  That's how he justified allegedly using $40,000 in donor funds to pay for an award-winning guard dog, a mastiff he named Marz. He later returned the dog because he said the pup had a 'little too much energy.' On Tuesday, King wrote in a lengthy Facebook post about what his 'life has become.' 'I spend more time each day now thinking about how to keep my...
    Former President Donald Trump released a statement on Tuesday attacking the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol and repeated a debunked claim surrounding the attack, which has become a standard talking point on the right. “The Unselect Committee of Political Thugs has not devoted one hour to the massive Election Fraud and Irregularities that took place in the 2020 Presidential Election, the reason that hundreds of thousands of people went to Washington on January 6th. When will they start?” Trump said in a statement released by his Save America Pac. “The Unselects also refuse to look at why Crazy Nancy Pelosi and the Mayor of D.C. turned down from 10-20,000 troops. Why is this, I wonder?” he added. On July 26th, the Jan. 6 Committee released a clip of testimony from Trump’s former acting Defense Secretary Chris Miller saying there was no order given to have military personal ready ahead of Jan. 6 – including the National Guard. “To remove any doubt: Not only did Donald Trump fail to contact his Secretary of...
    Getty Kevin Durant #7 of the Brooklyn Nets The Brooklyn Nets struggled during the 2021-22 regular season because they had to overcome several roadblocks. Still even with all of the vaccine drama with Kyrie Irving, the James Harden trade, and Kevin Durant’s injury, Brooklyn was able to advance out of the play-in tournament and drew a first-round matchup with the Boston Celtics. The Nets got swept out of the first round. But many felt that despite Brooklyn being a much lower seed, they still had a chance to beat the Celtics because they had the All-Star duo of KD and Kyrie. However, former Nets guard Mike James said on the Players Choice Podcast, Durant was sure the Nets would lose to Boston. “So, when they [the Nets] was trash, and they was losing, I called him one day, I was like ‘You know what this means right? You going to come to my playoff game’”, James said. “He was like ‘No way I’m coming to your playoff game, and then like a week later, he [Durant] called me...

    LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Chicago Bears center Lucas Patrick is out indefinitely because of a right hand injury, leaving a retooled offensive line without an important piece. Coach Matt Eberflus confirmed Friday that Patrick injured his right hand and said there is no timetable for his return. “He injured his right hand and the reason I’m giving that out is he is going to be out for a little bit of time, so it’s not just a soft tissue injury or something where he might be out a couple days,” Eberflus said. “This is more than that.” Offensive tackle Teven Jenkins missed his second straight practice and defensive back Thomas Graham Jr. sat out Friday’s practice. Eberflus declined to say if they were injured or sick. He said Jenkins — who had back surgery last August after former general manager Ryan Pace traded up to draft him in the second round — was “working through something with the trainers,” and so was Graham. Patrick, who turns 29 on Saturday, left Thursday’s practice. The Bears signed him in March to...
    Kendrick Lamar said music is 'all about feeling' after seeing a video of a security guard bursting into tears at his Houston concert.  Lamar, 35, was performing his hit song 'Love' when security guard Devyn Sanford was caught on video emotionally wiping away tears as he bobbed his head to the beat and mouthed the lyrics.  The 10-second clip ended with Sanford covering his mouth as he squeezed his eyes shut, completely overcome by emotions as he guarded the stage Friday night at the Houston Toyota Center.  After the show, the 14-time Grammy award winner spoke with 12-year-old reporter Jazzy of Jazzy's World TV, saying he saw the video and wondered 'what he's going through,' but said that's what music should do.  'At the end of the days, that's how you want everybody to perceive your music, you know, make them feel good, make them feel like a moment they're attached [to]. It can live forever,' Lamar told Jazzy.  Scroll down for video  Kendrick Lamar, 35, (pictured on July 24) said music is 'all about feeling' after seeing a video of  security...
    Former acting Defense Secretary Chris Miller testified to the House Jan. 6 committee that former President Donald Trump never ordered 10,000 troops to be ready to deploy to the Capitol on Jan. 6 despite his repeated claims. Trump and former chief of staff Mark Meadows previously claimed that the administration had 10,000 National Guard troops ready to deploy to the Capitol. Miller told the committee that there was no "accuracy" to those statements in a new deposition video released by the panel on Tuesday. "I was never given any direction or order or knew of any plans of that nature," Miller told the committee, adding that he was "surprised by seeing that publicly" because there was "no order from the president." Miller explained that "obviously we had plans for activating more folks but that was not anything more than contingency planning." "There was no official message traffic or anything of that nature," he added. Pressed again on whether the Defense Department had 10,000 troops ready for Jan. 6, Miller said that a "nonmilitary person could have some sort of weird...
    Neil W. McCabe, the national political editor of The Star News Network, interviewed Tennessee Army National Guard Captain Mickey Shelton, who has applied for a religious exemption from the Pentagon’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate, about his perspective on the purge of unvaccinated military personnel. TRANSCRIPT: McCabe: President Joe Biden promised to transform the U.S. military, and none of his actions have been more transformative than his involuntary separation of more than 1,000 unvaccinated servicemen and women. Unvaccinated Tennessee Army National Guard Captain Mickey Shelton, speaking in his personal capacity, told The Tennessee Star and The Star News Network his perspective on the great Biden purge. Shelton: My current vaccination status is that I have a pending religious exemption. So currently right now, I’m still able to drill until otherwise told or if that’s approved or disapproved. And how I came to that decision, it’s my personally held religious beliefs. McCabe: The captain, who deployed to Kuwait in 2019, said his conscience kicked in when he learned that the COVID-19 vaccines were developed with tissue cells harvested from aborted children. Shelton:...

    Thursday morning on War Room: Pandemic, Stephen K. Bannon welcomed Captain Mickey Shelton of the Tennessee National Guard to the show to discuss his letter sent to Governor Bill Lee to take action against COVID-19 vaccine mandates for guardsmen. Bannon: Let me bring in captain Mickey Shelton from out in Tennessee. Captain Shelton, tell us what the situation is out there. You are an officer in the National Guard. An army officer. Captain, real quickly, tell us what’s going on in Tennessee for unvaccinated patriots that serve in the army national Guard. Shelton: Absolutely. And first I have to give a disclaimer. This is my own opinion and not of the military DOD or army National Guard There are 400 soldiers today that are going to be immediately affected and fired frankly because they don’t want to take the COVID vaccine. And this is something we’ve tried to address with the governor, but it seems like he’s just making blanket statements and planned political theater and not doing anything about it.

    NASHVILLE, Tennessee – A group of off-duty National Guard members and supporters were led by Captain Mickey Shelton and State Representative Jerry Sexton (R-Grainger) in delivering a letter to Governor Bill Lee’s office imploring him to take meaningful action to save the jobs of guardsmen who are about to be fired for refusing the COVID-19 vaccine after the “Guard Freedom” event that was held at Legislative Plaza midday on Wednesday. Lee was absent from his office and after a few moments, Shelton and Sexton were able to present the letter to Ben Silverman, who is Lee’s personal aide. During the exchange, a partition and a female state trooper separated the pair and the 30 or so supporters from Lee’s aide. “We wanted to give Governor Lee this letter, in regards to each one of these things and what he can do about it. We invited him to our event. I don’t know what prior engagement he had but I was sad not to see him there. I’m sure there was something more important that he couldn’t be there,” Shelton said...

    It took a while, but Jalen Williams is no longer a curiosity. The secret is out regarding the Santa Clara guard who is the school’s most talented player since Steve Nash. Williams, 21, is expected to become the first player from Santa Clara to be drafted in the first round since Nash in 1996. The question is how high he’ll go. And in the run-up to the draft, which includes private workouts, meetings, and the NBA Draft combine, Williams can sense a change in how he’s perceived. “I definitely felt the shift in the combine where I’ve been able to show everything that I’ve been working on,” Williams said Tuesday in a phone interview. “People obviously haven’t seen me, being on the West Coast. We play later so everybody misses our games. But I felt with what I did at the combine, people’s eyes were opened seeing me live and the little things I can bring to the table.” Not only did Williams have the longest wingspan of any guard in the draft (over 7-foot-2 inches), but he also had...

Ashley Bachelor, Rondo's ex-partner and mother of his children, filed the emergency protection order against the NBA star last month after he allegedly brandished a gun during an argument over their son.

    One look at Julius Francis' boxing career record perfectly encapsulates the action-packed life he's lived so far.  With 23 wins and 24 losses, it's been a topsy-turvy, rollercoaster ride that has taken another steep dip after the heavyweight-turned security guard was filmed knocking out a rowdy man outside the bar he works at in Wembley. Revellers at BoxPark Wembley - where Francis has been working since his retirement in 2006 - were left stunned after his one-punch knockout of a rowdy individual, who had been screaming at others and scrapping with other security officials. The man's friends began remonstrating with Francis, telling him 'there was no need' for his attack after he had left the gated entrance where he had started bickering and screaming at other customers. But Francis, now 57, looked to defend his actions after walking away from the man's motionless body, and he has also been backed by the owner of BoxPark, who said the ex-boxer was standing his ground after being approached confrontationally.   Many shocked viewers at the scene and those watching the video on social...
    The NBA is being denounced for denying pensions to elderly retired ABA players following passing of 79-year-old Sam Smith, a former Utah Stars guard who died of congestive heart failure on May 18 after his failed crusade for a $2,000 monthly check from the league. 'It would have been life-changing,' his widow Helen told the Indianapolis Star of the $2,000 pension that never came. 'Because we were living. We were getting everything paid, but we couldn't do a lot more.'

    A Milwaukee drug den security guard murdered six people in the stash house that he was supposed to protect, then took a selfie wearing the glasses of one of the victims while others lay dead on the floor, authorities say. Travis Birkley, 34, the 'house gun' at the home of Michelle and Donta Williams, was charged on Saturday with slaying six people during a 'robbery gone bad,' according to a criminal complaint.

    Iran has reported the death of another colonel of the elite Quds force of its Revolutionary Guards, the second in two weeks from the unit which oversees Iran's military operations abroad. Colonel Ali Esmailzadeh died during an 'incident in his residence' days ago in the city of Karaj, some 19 miles northwest of the capital of Tehran, reported the official IRNA news agency, citing an informed source.  It did not elaborate on the circumstances surrounding Esmailzadeh's death, but denied reports that the colonel was assassinated. The denial comes as other news channels close to the Guard said Esmailzadeh fell from his rooftop or balcony. Esmailzadeh's death came just weeks after two unidentified gunmen on a motorbike shot Colonel Hassan Sayyad Khodaei, 50, five times in a car in front of his residence in Tehran on May 22.  Colonel Ali Esmailzadeh died during an 'incident in his residence' days ago in the city of Karaj, some 19 miles northwest of the capital of Tehran, reported the official IRNA news agency, citing an informed source RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next ...
    Gov. Ron DeSantis Gov. Ron DeSantis is trying his damnedest to win the award for the most fascist leader in the U.S., this time calling on fellow Floridians to join the state’s long-disbanded version of a second-string National Guard—a move critics (reasonably) fear could be used to enforce right-wing extremist goals without any real oversight. DeSantis’ office announced Tuesday the search for 400 people and one part-time director to join the newly revived Florida State Guard (FLSG), according to the Tallahassee Democrat. “If you love the state of Florida, have a desire to help your community, and have skills beneficial to protect the state from a disaster, we encourage you to apply to join the FLSG. Skilled Floridians with emergency response, law enforcement, or military training are encouraged to apply,” reads a statement from DeSantis’ office.  RELATED STORY: DeSantis signs voter bill officially authorizing Gestapo-like election police force This state-funded organization was authorized in 1941 as a paramilitary group originally called the Florida Defense Force.

    Chicago Bulls guard Zach LaVine underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Tuesday after playing through discomfort and swelling for most of the 2021-22 season. LaVine’s surgery took place at the Cedars-Sinai Kerlan-Jobe Institute in Los Angeles, where he lives during the offseason, and he’s expected to make a full recovery, the Bulls said in a statement. The left knee was already a concern for LaVine, who tore his ACL in 2017. He spent the week before this season’s All-Star break in Los Angeles to receive cortisone and platelet-rich plasma injections, missing two games. LaVine continued to miss games throughout the final third of the regular season, struggling with pain and discomfort during games and on the bench. Despite injuries to his knee and thumb and his second and third bouts with COVID-19, LaVine averaged 24.4 points and 4.5 assists this season and earned a second straight All-Star selection. He enters his first summer as an unrestricted free agent at the conclusion of this season. LaVine invited speculation about his next step when he declined to commit to re-signing with...

    Chris Paul‘s reputation took another hit this season after the No. 1-seed Phoenix Suns were upset in the playoffs. But Trae Young says he’s still one of the greatest. It’s been a rough few weeks for Chris Paul. After helping lead the Phoenix Suns to the best record in the NBA, a disappointing playoff loss at the hands of the Dallas Mavericks has added to a lengthy career list of postseason flops. But while plenty of fans are taking the opportunity to ask questions about Paul’s legacy, one of the best young point guards in the NBA is still an admirer. Trae Young spoke with FanSided last week about The Trae Young Family Foundation and his work to support positive mental health and combat bullying. But even in a conversation about this important topics, Young had time to answer some questions about his top five point guards of all time: “Steve Nash, No. 1, just because he’s my favorite player. Chris Paul’s in there, Steph’s in there… There’s a lot. Isiah Thomas. And then… Magic, for sure. I’m tripping.”Trae Young...
    A senior member of Iran's powerful Revolutionary Guard was shot dead in his car outside his home in Tehran today by unidentified gunmen on a motorbike, state TV reported. Iran's Revolutionary Guards said that one of its officers, Colonel Hassan Sayyad Khodaei, was the victim of the rare assassination. The two assailants shot Khodaei five times in his unarmored Iranian-made Kia Pride, it was said. Reports identified Khodaei only as a 'defender of the shrine' - a reference to Iranians in the Guard's elite Quds force who oversee foreign operations. The semi-official ISNA news agency reported that members of an Israeli intelligence service network had been discovered and arrested by the Guards. Although the Guard gave only scant detail about the attack, the group blamed the killing on 'global arrogance' - a code typically used to refer to the United States and Israel.  There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack and the Israeli Prime Minister's Office has declined to comment on events in Tehran. Iran's Revolutionary Guards said that one of its officers, Colonel Hassan Sayyad Khodaei, was...

    He added that the U.S. law that prohibits protesting with the intent to sway a judicial decision should be enforced by federal authorities and argued in a letter that setting up a security perimeter would violate neighborhood residents' Fourth Amendment rights and protesters' First Amendment rights. However, such careful thought didn't seem to influence his decision to order police protection outside his own home shortly thereafter. In response to questioning from the Free Beacon, a McKay spokesman said only that he "has full faith in the professionals of the [Fairfax County Police Department] to carry out their mission of ensuring public safety and protecting people's constitutional rights." The Justice Department's U.S. Marshals Service has since "accelerated the provision of around-the-clock security at the homes of all Justices" upon request from Youngkin and Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R).
    The mother of Rajon Rondo’s children has been granted an emergency protective order after he allegedly pulled a gun on her and threatened to kill her. Ashley Bachelor, the NBA point guard’s 36-year-old ex-girlfriend, claims that Rondo was playing video games with their son last week when she asked the boy to finish doing laundry, according to the order obtained by the Louisville Courier Journal Monday. Rondo, 36, became “enraged” and “ripped the video game console from the wall” when their son got up, smashed a tea cup in front of their daughter, began throwing things around the house and outside, then drove his car onto the lawn, according to Bachelor. “You’re dead,” he allegedly told her when she asked why he was acting out. Instead of calling police, Bachelor said she called the former police chief personally, scared of how Rondo would continue to react. He left, then came back 15 minutes and began hitting the back window with a gun, according to the protective order request. Still waving his gun, Rondo allegedly screamed at both children, asking why...
    Getty Golden State Warriors guard Gary Payton II battles for possession of the ball during a bout with the Atlanta Hawks. Following a difficult series with the Grizz, the Golden State Warriors are now just four wins away from punching their ticket to the NBA Finals. And after the events of Sunday, they now know the team they’ll have to beat in order to book a return to the championship round — the Dallas Mavericks. Thanks to Luka Doncic and Spencer Dinwiddie, who scored a combined 65 points in the contest, the Mavs were able to blow out the Suns in Phoenix to the tune of a 123-90 Game 7 win. While Dallas has gained steam with each passing postseason game, the Warriors have to feel good about their chances, especially given their home-court advantage in the series. However, they’ll be missing at least one of their key players when the Western Conference Finals tip-off on Wednesday in Gary Payton II. The breakout baller has been on the shelf since suffering an elbow fracture at the hands of...
    Q: I am not sure what the timeline is for Kyle Lowry’s return, but whenever it is, he should come off the bench for a couple of games. He is likely to be rusty and the Heat cannot afford a bad start in any game against Bucks or Celtics. If Dwyane Wade can come off the bench, anybody can. – Parag, Weston. A: And there are layers to this beyond who starts. Because it’s not only about Kyle Lowry again starting, it also is about the back end of the rotation. With Kyle back, then it is Kyle and Gabe Vincent as the 1-2 punch at point guard. With Kyle out, it’s Gabe and Victor Oladipo as the 1-2 alignment on the depth chart at point guard. So with Kyle back in the mix, it then impacts a role for Vic. More than anything, it is a situation that has to be monitored. And it comes down to this: You play Kyle if he is 90 percent back from his hamstring. But what if he is 80 percent? Or 70...
