Bulls coach Jim Boylen: Hooked starters ’embarrassing’ in record loss

first_imgThe Celtics went on to seal a 133-77 thrashing at United Center, with the 56-point margin representing the worst loss in the Bulls’ history. A sullen Zach LaVine hinted Boylen had crossed the line between sending a message to the players and embarrassing them. “We put a lot of hard work into this. I get up, compete every day. I think regardless of whatever the score is, I want to go out there and compete, but obviously we didn’t get a chance to do that. I felt embarrassed. I wish I was out there competing,” LaVine said.Looking for a much different outcome this Monday.Game recap, brought to you by @CinkciarzPL:— Chicago Bulls (@chicagobulls) December 9, 2018Boylen had no sympathy, however, directing a clear message to his starting five in his postgame news conference: “I think your play is embarrassing. Me subbing them is saving them, maybe. Maybe we saved them.”The pro player thing, this is basketball; this is about honoring the game and doing the right things.”Embarrassment is not giving the effort in that Bulls uniform, so I put five guys in that I thought could put the effort in. “I wanted to give the other guys a chance to see if they could right the ship a little bit. I’ve been a part of teams that have done that before; don’t like the five guys out here, don’t like that combination, look at a new combination, take them all out, let them sit there and think about it.”We didn’t honor the game very well with our effort and our competitiveness, so why not take them all out? We’re a team, so sub five guys and see what they can do.”They’re disappointed, they feel bad about it. We need some leadership to step up, we need some guys to take leadership roles on the team.” Jim Boylen twice subbed out all five starters because they were “embarrassing” as the Bulls suffered their heaviest defeat in franchise history to the Celtics. Boylen, who replaced Fred Hoiberg on Monday, changed his entire group on the floor with seven minutes and 15 seconds remaining in the opening period — then did so again with 21 minutes left in the match. last_img read more

In a day and age where baseballs are flying out of ballparks more than ever before, London got a true feel for what the game is becoming.In Game 1 of the London Series between the Yankees and Red Sox, the game started off nutty and ended even nuttier. The two teams combined to score 12 runs in the first inning and the game only got crazier from there in New York’s eventual 17-13 win.Five crazy stats from Game 1 of the London Series:1. The Yankees and Red Sox combined to score 12 runs (six each) in the first inning Saturday. It is the first time since 1989 that has happened in a game (Blue Jays and Athletics) and just the sixth time since 1912. Related Newscenter_img The @Yankees and @RedSox have each scored six runs in the first inning of today’s #LondonSeries game.This is the 6th game since 1912 in which both teams scored six in the first, and first since June 23, 1989 (Toronto at Oakland).— Stats By STATS (@StatsBySTATS) June 29, 20192.

New Basie Expansion Will Require More Parking

first_imgBy John BurtonRED BANK – With plans to greatly expand the Count Basie Theatre, making way for bigger productions and larger drawing shows, there will be a need for more parking and officials are giving that consideration.Following Monday’s announcement at the Count Basie Theatre concerning its planned upward of $20 million proposed expansion, Mayor Pasquale Menna said, “We also have to have parking,” to accommodate those additional visitors in the coming years, but “We’re challenged in what we can do.”Menna explained borough officials are planning on conducting environmental testing of the White Street municipal lot. That would be the first step, he said, before eventually moving for ward with the long discussed construction of a parking garage on the site.“It’s expensive to test,” Menna offered, to determine the condition of the White Street property. And given that, Red Bank RiverCenter has agreed to shoulder some of the cost.James Scavone, executive director of RiverCenter, said his organization has agreed to cover half the price.The borough attorney is in the process of drafting the agreement “but we don’t know anything yet,” as to the details or cost, Scavone said.Red Bank RiverCenter is the management and advocacy organization for the borough’s business special improvement district.In addition to the testing, borough officials will seek in the near future requests for proposals for some combination of a public/private partnership, Menna said.It is the mayor’s hope that a private entity would look to construct a mixed-use facility, maybe something containing retail or residential units in addition to a multi-tiered parking deck.In the past Menna had said he would support such a project but only one that “made sense for the taxpayers.”White Street would be the optimum spot for such a facility, officials have said previously, given it is borough-owned and sits in the center of the downtown business district.
“I definitely think it can be a very positive sign, a step in the right direction, for sure,” the overtures the mayor is making for a parking remedy, Scavone offered.But getting the appropriate proposal and completing the testing will take time. “Putting the pieces of the puzzle is a time consuming effort,” Menna said.Debate over whether to construct a public parking garage to address a chronic parking space shortfall has a long history in the borough, with traditionally the business community continuing to support it, believing it would make the downtown business district more accessible and competitive; but residents in the past have expressed vocal objections to it, at least when it involved officials spending taxpayer money to construct it. That was the case in 2001 when homeowners’ and voters’ anger over a proposed $11.5 million bond ordinance eventually led to the borough council withdrawing the plan – after then-councilman Menna said he intended to vote against it.last_img read more
