Former NBA player Ernie Vandeweghe dies at 86
2014-11-12

The death was confirmed Sunday night by Kiki Vandeweghe, who said his father died of natural causes at his home in Newport Beach.

Vandeweghe averaged 9.5 points and 4.6 rebounds in 224 regular-season games for the Knicks from 1949-56. In college, he averaged 19.1 points in four seasons at Colgate.

"I am so lucky to have spent so many years with him learning and growing," granddaughter CoCo Vandeweghe, a pro tennis player ranked 40th in the world, said in a Facebook post Saturday. "He is now in a better place with his beloved wife. He will be missed dearly. Love you Pal."

Ernie Vandeweghe's wife, Colleen, died in 2010. She won the 1952 Miss America pageant.

Born in Montreal, Vandeweghe went to medical school while in the NBA and was a physician in the U.S. Air Force. He was chairman of the President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports and served on the Olympic Sports Commission. He also was the Lakers' team physician when the team moved to Los Angeles from Minneapolis.

"He's never really gone because the lessons are still there," said Kiki Vandeweghe, who as a 5-year-old didn't understand why his physician father would often be gone on weekends.

"He used to take care of the athletes and their kids. I found out he never charged any of those people. When you can afford to give back, you do."

Kiki Vandeweghe played 13 seasons in the NBA and was a two-time All-Star who averaged 19.7 points for his career. Daughter Tauna won a U.S. swimming championship in the backstroke and competed in the 1976 Montreal Olympics. Son Bruk was a beach volleyball player, and daughter Heather captained the U.S. women's polo team. Coco is Tauna's daughter.

Ernie Vandeweghe grew up on Long Island and played football, basketball and baseball at Oceanside High School.

PHILADELPHIA 76ERS (20-12) at MEMPHIS GRIZZLIES (18-15)
2012-02-21

Tip-off: Tuesday, 8:05 p.m. ET

Line: Philadelphia -1, Total: 180½


The struggling 76ers look to change thei online bingo r fortunes in Memphis when they take on a Grizzlies team playing its last game before the All-Star break.

After feasting on an easy schedule for the good part of the year, the 76ers are reeling, going 2-5 (1-6 ATS) in their past seven games. They have lost four straight (SU and ATS) to West teams, scoring just 83.3 PPG on 40% FG in these four defeats. The Grizzlies have had their way with Eastern Conference teams (6-2 SU and ATS) and are 5-1 ATS in the past six meetings with Philly. The pick here is MEMPHIS to win on its home floor.

Philly’s defense leads the NBA with 87.3 PPG allowed, and it has held five of its past six opponents to 41% FG or less. The 76ers also take care of the basketball better than anyone, with a league-best 10.0 turnovers per game. The reason the team is struggling is because of an inefficient offense averaging just 88.1 PPG on 41% FG in the past seven contests. Six players score at least 10 PPG for Philadelphia, led by reserve PG Lou Williams (15.9 PPG). He has played better away from home this year, averaging 17.6 PPG on 46% FG in 13 road contests. PG Jrue Holiday (13.6 PPG, 4.6 APG) had a team-high 20 points in Sunday’s 92-91 loss in Minnesota. Andre Iguodala is fourth on the team in scoring (12.4 PPG), but he is the most valuable 76ers player with 6.5 RPG, 5.3 APG and 1.8 SPG. C Spencer Hawes (10.5 PPG) remains out with a strained Achilles’ and won’t return until after the All-Star break. His absence has certainly contributed to his team’s recent slide.

Memphis is 12-5 SU at home this year, allowing just 92.8 PPG and forcing a league-high 17.0 turnovers per game on its home floor. The Grizzlies swept the season series from Philly last year, as Mike Conley (13.3 PPG, 6.7 APG) scored all 22 of his points in the second half of last February’s meeting in Memphis to propel his team to a 102-91 win. Conley has been playing great basketball as of late with 16.8 PPG on 50% FG, 40% threes and 96% FT (23-of-24) in his past six games. With Zach Randolph still out with a knee injury, PF Marreese Speights has really stepped up his game, averaging a double-double (12.5 PPG, 10.4 RPG) in his past eight contests. Leading scorer Rudy Gay (19.0 PPG) suffered a season-ending shoulder injury the last time he faced the 76ers, but he has been remarkably consistent this month. Gay has scored between 18 and 25 points in each of his past 13 games, making 41% of his threes during this stretch.



NBA Free Agency: Dwyane Wade
2010-07-07

As free agency is upon us, the most settled superstar appears to be Dwyane Wade. By all accounts, he is satisfied in Miami and is Botas Moto looking to cement his legacy there. Unlike some of the other stars on the market, he has already won a title with his current team. Nevertheless, he is perhaps just as important as any individual involved in free agency. With the impending free-for-all, he is looking to leverage his superstar status and team’s success to help Miami acquire players who can return them to the glory of their 2006 NBA title. The possibilities abound and anything can happen in this most unpredictable of periods.

Perhaps the juiciest scenario is that Wade would corral the other two top free agents. It has been confirmed that Wade met with Chris Bosh and LeBron James in Miami about potentially joining forces. This would create a preponderance of talent the likes of which is hard to fathom or find comparison. In Wade’s favor is the fact that these three have already demonstrated that they can play together and not let their egos get in the way. As teammates on the 2008 American Olympic team, Wade willingly came off the bench and the team won the gold medal. Also, James and Bosh both come from comparatively small markets and Miami is the type of glitzy market where their marketing opportunities and brands could grow. However, external sources have some concerns that the three could coexist throughout the duration of an entire NBA season. Wade and James have similar styles that are predicated on penetration and getting to the basket. Considering Wade willed his team to a championship before and has been with Miami for the duration of his career, the other two may be concerned that he’ll be the one getting the ball in clutch situations.

However, the Heat has perhaps the one coach who could help diffuse this situation: Pat Riley. Although Riley is currently in the team’s front office, it’s believed that he’d return to the bench for a chance to coach James and Bosh. Riley’s coached multiple championship teams in the past and has had to deal with outsized personalities before: most recently with Wade and Shaquille O’Neal in 2006, which was a great year for NBA betting on the Heat.

Riley would also need to figure out how to surround the big three with role players. In an attempt to create enough salary cap room for three maximum free agents, the Heat have jettisoned all but two of their players, a dicey proposition. Mario Chalmers and Michael Beasley are good players but if everything went right and James and Bosh joined Wade in Miami, they’d still have a roster to fill without significant money.

Also, there is the very distinct possibility that one or both of these players won’t want to sign with Miami. James seems to be driving all the decisions in this year’s free agency and there will be a domino effect no matter what he decides. Some believe that James and Bosh are a package deal so if James decides to go to a team like Chicago, Bosh may follow him. In that case, Miami would have to look at the next tier of players.

Fortunately for Wade and the Heat, that next tier is laced with all-star caliber talent. A possibility that seems to be gaining steam is that Miami would pursue Amar’e Stoudemire if neither James nor Bosh work out. Stoudemire is a perennial all-star at center, and he would create a dymanic inside-outside duo with Wade. If this were to happen, the Heat would need to decide if they’d pursue another high-end free agent like Carlos Boozer or Joe Johnson, or try to use the rest of their cap room to build around Wade and Stoudemire. Considering that players like Boozer or Johnson may not actually be worth the max contracts they’ll likely command, the latter option seems more prudent.

It’s really difficult to decipher how this will all turn out. In the end, it seems that everything will likely be predicated on James; right now, his three most likely destinations appear to be Cleveland, Chicago, and Miami, with a seemingly different frontrunner every day. No matter what, Heat fans can be thankful that Wade will likely stay and continue to be a franchise cornerstone for years to come.

NBA: Orlando vs. Atlanta Series Betting Preview
2010-05-05

The Magic and Hawks took opposite paths to their second round series matchup, Orlando using only four games, while Atlanta was pus video poker hed to the full seven. However, this is what the Hawks wanted, they are out to prove they are an elite club deserving of being in the final four of East tournament, pitted against the defending conference champions. What is set to occur?...Read on, then check the latest series price on the Sportsbook.com LIVE ODDS page.
(2)Orlando vs (3) Atlanta
If the Orlando Magic are a little tight to start Eastern Conference semi-final series with Atlanta don’t be shocked. Not tight like in nervous, more in the muscles being strained, as they haven’t played a NBA game since Mar. 26 in being the only NBA team to sweep their first opponent.
Though Orlando needed only four contests to send the Bobcats packing, a similar performance could send them home before Memorial Day. Dwight "Foul-On-U" Howard played roughly 54 percent of the time against Charlotte and it had nothing to do with being tired or the Magic being far ahead. Howard was continually in foul trouble and was WAY to easily frustrated by the antics of Bobcats big men and let his ego matter more than the team.
Though Atlanta coach Mike Woodson will not be mentioned in the same sentence with Larry Brown as astute NBA coaching legends, he will learn from what the Charlotte was able to do and work to have Howard take himself out of the game instead of being a dominant force.
Vince Carter shot 35.7 percent in his first playoff series with Orlando, that won’t cut it against Atlanta. Carter was too tentative and fell back into comfort zone of hoisting jumps shots. He has to be willing to put the ball on the deck, drive to the rim, get fouled and make free throws to create more wide open chances for jumpers.
If those two players perform up to capabilities, Orlando could have another short series, since Jameer Nelson, Matt Barnes and Mickael Pietrus were burying three’s like “Fito” with his bone in the backyard. In many ways Nelson is the key performer among this trio, as he can force Atlanta to sit Mike Bibby, since he is not a good defender any longer and make the Hawks use Jamal Crawford as more two-way player.
Orlando won three of four meetings with Southeast Division partner, with average margin of victory 22.1 points per game. The Magic come into this series 40-19 ATS having won 12 or more of their last 15 games.
Coach Woodson wants to believe his club learned something about itself and it will carry over into this next series. Realistically, except for fourth quarter collapse in Game 5, the Hawks have played very good defense for three games and started sharing the ball in the last six quarters.
Atlanta players don’t have to run isolations time after time to score, they get much better offensive flow by passing, cutting and finding open shooters. Though Milwaukee lacked the height to compete with the Hawks inside, the increased offensive movement made them a much better offensive rebounding team which will be a requirement in this series, especially if it leads to fouls on Howard.
On defense, Atlanta was able to pressure the Bucks guards with greater persistence and they will have to have that same gumption with all the Orlando shooters.
To start the series, the better strategy for the Hawks is to man-up the Magic and keep in contact with their sharp-shooters and hope Al Horford can force Howard out to around 10 feet and keep him away from the rim. What hurts Atlanta is when they allow dribble penetration, setting up Howard for easy dunks because of help defense and three-point marksmen are left alone to hit the bulls-eye.
Joe Johnson and Crawford have to be the offensive catalysts as scorers and facilitators. Horford, Josh Smith and Marvin Williams are much better players when they receive passes in their comfort zone.
"We're confident," Hawks center Horford said. "I think we've figured out if we play hard defensively we always give ourselves a chance to win games. And we just have to come out and match their intensity. They have a lot of good shooters, they have Dwight inside. It's going to be a challenge... but we're excited." Atlanta is 5-18 ATS on the road in all playoff games.
Atlanta will have no better chance to grab the upper hand feeding off the momentum of series win and Orlando being rusty for first contest. The Hawks players, at least outwardly believe they can win two series for the first time in franchise history since moving to Atlanta in 1968. That means playing at a level they are not accustomed to and doing whatever it takes. From talent perspective, they could pull the upset, but Orlando is a bad matchup for them with their style (4-8 SU & ATS) and ultimately prevails.
Pick- Orlando (-800) in six over Atlanta (+500)
