Radmanovic pays hefty price

first_imgEL SEGUNDO – For his one-day ticket to go snowboarding at Snowbird Ski Resort in Utah over the All-Star break, Lakers forward Vladimir Radmanovic paid somewhere in the neighborhood of $64. For the separated shoulder he suffered while snowboarding on that ill-fated trip, violating the terms of his contract, Radmanovic will pay a $500,000 fine, or enough to buy a lift ticket every day for the next 21 years. “I was prepared for everything,” Radmanovic said. “They came up with a number. I think it’s fair for what I did.” He initially lied about how he was hurt, claiming he slipped on an icy sidewalk while on a trip for coffee, before coming clean to coach Phil Jackson and general manager Mitch Kupchak. The Lakers opted not to void the five-year, $30.2 million contract Radmanovic signed last July and wound up cutting the 26-year-old forward a break for coming forward with the truth and showing contrition. Jackson lamented that he was unable to field a full complement of players for any of the three practices this week. Andrew Bynum was sick again Thursday and Aaron McKie went home with an upper respiratory infection. Maurice Evans was still experiencing soreness in his right knee while Bryant practiced, but not before first undergoing an MRI on his hyperextended left elbow. The exam showed no further damage.

For his part, Radmanovic said he wouldn’t appeal the fine. last_img read more

Is this the Chelsea team to clinch the Premier League?

first_img Can Chelsea win the Premier League on Sunday? 1 Chelsea will win a fourth Premier League title if they beat Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.The Blues will be home and dry with three games to spare if victorious over the South London side, but Jose Mourinho has asked the home crowd not to celebrate early. He has called on fans to be “ready to push” his side over the line as it will be “very difficult” against Crystal Palace.A win, however, will equal Mourinho’s achievement in his first season of 2004/05, when he brought the Premier League to Stamford Bridge for the first time with three games to spare.He may well have done it the ‘boring’ way, but they have scored the second most goals in the league and have the second best defensive record and deservedly sit well clear of Arsenal and Manchester City.Chelsea will fancy their chances to extend these impressive stats against a side they have only lost to once in 11 Premier League meetings.Furthermore, the Blues have impressively lost just three of their 50 matches in all competitions this season.Diego Costa has again been ruled out with a hamstring injury, however fellow striker Loic Remy is back in contention with Thibaut Courtois returning from a hip problem.So who will Mourinho pick for what could be a Premier League winning team? talkSPORT takes a look.GoalkeeperWith Courtois back in contention look for him to start ahead of Petr Cech as Mourinho’s number one choice in goal.It will be interesting to see whether Cech decides to move onto pastures new next season, but for now, Mourinho has two of the best goalkeepers in the league to choose from.DefenceHardly unchanged all season, the back-four of Branislav Ivanovic, Gary Cahill, John Terry and César Azpilicueta will almost certainly start this game.All have largely stayed away from injury, only missing nine Premier League games between them.One who has played every league game this season is Terry, who is also level with David Unsworth as the top-scoring defender in Premier League history with 38 goals.As a unit, the Blues have conceded just 27 league goals all campaign, second only to Southampton on 26.More good news is that the future replacement for Terry appears to have been found in Kurt Zouma.The 20-year-old Frenchman is a rare youngster at the club who’s broken through to play first team football this season and looked accomplished every time he’s played.MidfieldLook for Mourinho to play his favoured five in the midfield for this game, with Namanja Matic and Ramires playing the holding roles.Matic has been vitally important to how Chelsea like to play and was rightly in the PFA’s Team of the Year.Another in the team of the year is Eden Hazard, who also won the PFA’s Player of the Year.The Belgian has scored 13 Premier League goals and completed eight assists this season and his recent performances have pushed Chelsea closer to the line when the rest of the team have been struggling.Someone unlucky to miss out on an award this season is Cesc Fabregas, who has 17 assists this season – just three short of Thierry Henry’s Premier League record.Look for Oscar to play in this game ahead of fellow Brazilian Willian, with Mourinho perhaps favouring a late burst from the latter if needs be.AttackWith the club’s top scorer Costa out for at least another week, Mourinho looks set to keep faith in Didier Drogba.The Ivorian scored in the win over Leicester on Wednesday and despite being 37-years-old, can still do a job at the top flight of English Football.If Drogba were to get tired then Remy should be ready for a call up to the squad.last_img read more
