16 years after national title win with Syracuse, Gerry McNamara can still shoot

first_imgFeldman, a senior walk-on guard, usually covers McNamara. His scouting report: If he takes away McNamara’s 3-point shot, he’ll blow right by. If he gives him a foot of separation, he’ll knock down the shot. His game is rooted in a consistent jumper, which sets up his drives and dishes.“He’ll tell you he’s not as quick as he used to be,” Feldman said. “If you leave him for a second, though, it’s money.” Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on April 7, 2019 at 5:27 pm Contact Matthew: mguti100@syr.edu | @MatthewGut21 Freshman guard Buddy Boeheim said it’s not unusual to see McNamara shoot alone inside SU’s practice facility. Sometimes, he’ll shoot 300 or more 3-pointers — just like his playing days when his play drew busloads of people from his Scranton, Pennsylvania, hometown to watch.“He can go for hours,” Buddy said. “If he shoots below 85 percent from 3, he’ll reset the gun so nobody sees he shot below 90 percent.” Comments As he spotted up on the perimeter, Gerry McNamara went to work. Basketballs from a shooting machine known as the “gun” were fed to him, one pass after the other. From the corner, wings and top of the key, he put on a shooting clinic in the Carmelo K. Anthony Center, taking about 100 consecutive 3-pointers in under 10 minutes. He missed only nine.Former Syracuse women’s star Brittney Sykes, now a guard for the WNBA’s Atlanta Dream, happened to look over at the court when McNamara began. “It was mind-boggling,” Sykes recalled.“I was like, ‘Dammit, G-Mac,’” Sykes said. “You hear about the player he was, and I knew he could shoot it, but I was a little kid then. Now I saw it. Like wow. This is real.”Alexandra Moreo | Senior Staff PhotographerAdvertisementThis is placeholder textMcNamara is one of the greatest shooters in Syracuse history, drilling six 3-pointers in the 2003 national championship game as a 35.4% shooter from deep. This spring, he completed his eighth season as an SU assistant coach. He’s known as a skilled recruiter and quality player-development coach, especially for guards.His college career ended 13 years ago, and the 35-year-old is now a father of four. Yet, McNamara shoots on his own and dominates pickup games in the Melo Center and on the Carrier Dome floor before home games — 16 years after leading the Orange to a national title. Multiple Syracuse players said he rarely misses shots and he barely gets tired.“That’s what I do,” McNamara said. “I just love to play basketball. Nowadays, I have a lot of issues with my left ankle, so anytime I get a chance to play against the boys, it’s a lot of fun. That’s how I prefer to do most of my exercise.” “(McNamara) gets about nine points per game,” Paul said about McNamara’s pick-up play. “He lays back on defense. He’ll just be messing around with the ball and start hitting shots from 38 feet in practice. He’s a robot.” Before SU home games, select off days and during the offseason, McNamara teams up with four student managers. They play full-court, five-on-five against SU walk-ons, including Shaun Belbey, Brendan Paul and Ky Feldman. McNamara is unanimously regarded as the best player in those games.Even scholarship players have taken note. Multiple players said he could still hold his own in a Division I basketball game. Senior point guard Frank Howard said he’s not once seen McNamara shoot under 90 percent from 3-point range. Elijah Hughes called McNamara “unbelievable.” Said walk-on Antonio Balandi: “Very surreal.”His step-back jumper creates separation. McNamara can launch from well past the 3-point line. He can dribble through the legs and behind the back, over and over.Susie Teuscher | Digital Design EditorIn November, during a pickup game at the Carrier Dome, McNamara dribbled up the right side of the court and knocked down a deep 3. On his next possession, he lost the ball on a crossover and his opponent scored to win the game. He slammed a chair in frustration — his dogged competitive nature several players said hasn’t faded since his playing days.last_img read more

Heisler: Kawhi Leonard is available, just maybe not to the Lakers

first_imgWhy would the Spurs trade the 26-year-old Leonard to their ancient rivals, the Lakers?It says here they won’t.• With a year left on his contract, the Spurs must sign off on anything Kawhi does this summer.With less to offer in trade than other teams, the Lakers need him to force a deal, which he might well try, and for the Spurs to accede, which is less likely.Playing one more season for the Spurs would give Leonard all the leverage – but he and the Spurs might be past that after Kawhi trashed his “selfless” image and bailed on the team.Waiting a year won’t work for the Lakers, who need a second star to persuade LeBron to come. If they can’t get Kawhi this summer, they might go back to their original dream package with Paul George and LeBron.• It’s one of Popovich’s cardinal rules not to help Western Conference rivals, much less one with the tradition and resources of the Lakers.Popovich almost never says a bad word about another team, but he went bonkers in 2008 when Memphis traded Pau Gasol to the post-Shaquille O’Neal Lakers, setting them up for three consecutive Finals runs and two titles.“What they did in Memphis is beyond comprehension,” Popovich said at the time. “… I just wish I had been on a trade committee that oversees NBA trades. I’d like to elect myself to that committee. I would have voted no to the L.A. trade.”• We’ll never know if Popovich might deal with the Lakers if all things are equal. All things aren’t.Several contenders – such as the Celtics, 76ers and Cavaliers – have more young players and/or high first-round picks to offer the Spurs.The Lakers have Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, Julius Randle and Kyle Kuzma – all promising young players but none yet a star Popovich could build around. They don’t have their own first-round pick – now an unprotected No. 10 – which finally goes to Phladelphia (a pick the 76ers could, of course, offer the Spurs.) The Lakers’ No. 25 pick would mean little to San Antonio.And, of course, the Celtics, 76ers and Cavaliers are in the Eastern Conference, Popovich’s preferred destination for Leonard, if not Kawhi’s.The Clippers must be just as interested as the Lakers, but all they have is an aging roster and the No. 12 and 13 picks. (Drawing a top-three pick in the lottery could change things, but there’s just a 4.7 percent chance of that happening.)Of course, for Popovich, this is the nightmare scenario that he never imagined after the extraordinary run that saw a tiny market team win as many titles as the Lakers (five) from the Spurs’ first in 1999 to their last in 2014. Other teams expressed their admiration by hiring half the people who once sat next to Pop on the bench or worked in their front office.As opposed to the zany Lakers, who saw the Shaq-Kobe champions break themselves up, the Spurs ran on auto-pilot with Tim Duncan providing in-group leadership until his 2016 retirement.The summer before Duncan called it quits, the Spurs signed LaMarcus Aldridge, a gifted player but, as far as greatness, a flawed one, known for telling friends on other teams to get him over there as the weight of responsibility presses on his shoulders … as it did by his second season in San Antonio when he asked to be traded.“I was very candid with him,” Popovich said later. “I told him I would be happy to trade him. ‘You get me a talent like Kevin Durant and I will drive you to the airport. … Short of that, I’m your best buddy and you are here for another year and you ain’t going nowhere because for you talent-wise, we are not going to get what we want (in a trade) so let’s figure this thing out.’“And we did.”Related Articles It’s a sad day in San Antonio – and an exciting one for other teams, starting with the Lakers – with Kawhi Leonard and the Spurs looking like they’re past the point of no return.The Spurs trail the Warriors 3-0 in their first-round mismatch, one loss from the offseason with Kawhi nowhere in sight.Rather than sitting on the bench to lend his teammates support, he’s in New York with his new medical team … which has been no more successful in getting him over the mysterious thigh injury that kept him out for all but nine games this season.That cheering you hear is the parade cranking up in Lakerdom. Byron Scott, who is close to Magic Johnson, actually announced on ESPN, “I’m going to tell you something right now. LeBron (James) is coming to the Lakers along with Kawhi. We’re back in the Finals!” Unfortunately, as it turned out, Aldridge wasn’t the biggest problem they had.Indignity piles atop indignity. The Washington Post just ran a piece headlined, “Insulted pro-Trump Spurs fans feel forced to choose between their team and the president.”“I often curse Pop for doing what he did (criticizing Trump),” Bob Mulherin, a longtime fan told the Post. “He insulted more than half of the Spurs’ fan base and no sign whatsoever of an apology.”Of course, this is sports and all about winning … or what you have done for anyone recently … as opposed to politics. Popovich first criticized President Trump in the fall of 2016. It didn’t become an issue last season when the Spurs were still elite.Nothing is forever, not even the Spurs, the Spurs just learned.Mark Heisler has written an NBA column since 1991 and was honored with the Naismith Hall of Fame’s Curt Gowdy Award in 2006. His column is published weekly during the NBA season with the Southern California News Group. Reports dovetailing with that one swept the league:Kawhi, a Los Angeles guy who grew up in the Inland Empire, wants to come home.Kawhi, who has one year left on his contract, will force a trade to the Lakers.Of course, the teams can’t discuss it – especially the Lakers after incurring two tampering penalties this season, an NBA record, which could get them barred from bidding if they breathe wrong.That makes this the kind of story everyone loves best, with lots of star players on the move that can be molded to fit any need with no one dealing with the sticking point: Kristaps Porzingis ruled out as Clippers, Mavericks set for Game 5; Follow for game updates Video: What LeBron James said about Jacob Blake … ‘Black people in America are scared’ center_img For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory Clippers vs. Mavericks Game 5 playoff updates from NBA beat reporters Portland star Damian Lillard (knee) to miss Game 5 vs. Lakers Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

“Animalistic” carjackers causing fear among business community – Dookhoo

first_imgWith just three clear shopping days remaining before Christmas, Police are increasing their presence on the nation’s roads, especially at strategic points in the capital city. However, with increasing reports of carjackings, many Guyanese, especially those in the business sector, are showing signs of apprehension, which could reduce confidence in the economy.This was according to Private Sector stakeholder, Ramesh Dookhoo, who in a recent interview with Guyana Times, condemned the ever-increasing practice,Private sector stakeholder Ramesh Dookhoosaying many locals and even some foreigners have reason to be fearful.“There’s a huge state of apprehension in the business community; people are afraid for their lives and that apprehension has moved to normal middle-class owners of vehicles,” he noted.Just recently, ex-Policeman Rawle Alexander was promptly detained after he attempted to steal a Toyota Carina 212 car belonging to a Police Constable but failed when he crashed the vehicle a short distance away. In another attack, armed hijackers drove off in a motorcar carrying a sleeping child and tossed the young girl after they realised she was in the vehicle. Dookhoo deemed these acts as “animalistic”.“The girl was thrown out of the vehicle in a very callous and ruthless manner and I am not sure what is driving and causing this level of animalistic behaviour that has suddenly taken over,” he stated.Commenting on the increased spate of robberies, Dookhoo, a former Chairman of the Private Sector Commission (PSC), observed that shoppers should be more cautions, go out in pairs and try to be more careful when returning home. Police last week disclosed that there have been 25 cases of carjackings in the past seven months.Police A Division (Georgetown-East Bank Demerara) Commander Marlon Chapman on Tuesday announced that the Police Force has recorded some success in cracking down on such cases.Chapman said “One of major concerns in the Division is the offence of robbery under arms where vehicles are being stolen and I am pleased to inform you that we have made some success thus far.”He gave all assurances that the gang will be dismantled. Earlier this year, the Guyana Police Force had issued a warning, particularly to taxi drivers operating Toyota Premio and Allion motorcars, signalling that there is a plan to attack and relive the motorists of their vehicles. The Force has said a multi-agency approach is being ironed out to allow for investigators to be armed with the necessary tools and information on specifications so as to narrow in on suspects and ultimately recover the stolen cars.
