We are talking about Cooper Flagg, future number 1 of the 2025 Draft, who surprisingly received the call from Grant Hill to help the “older players” prepare for the Olympic event.

“It caught me by surprise because it’s not a normal thing. I’m very excited to have this opportunity,” Flagg told the outlet. ESPN.

His level is such (bordering on excellent) that he is leaving everyone speechless, including Kevin Durant, one of the best scorers of all time.

“He’s played incredibly well. He’s someone who will improve with just a little more experience. He’s only 17 years old and he’s playing like a veteran. No nerves,” KD said in statements collected by HoopsHype.com. READ FULL STORY HERE>>>CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE READING>>>

Football crisis: FIGC meeting, Abodi will not be present – Football

Published

on

By

The meeting between the president of the FIGC, Gabriele Gravina, and the federal components to discuss the electoral weights will not see the presence of the minister for sport and youth Andrea Abodi. As ANSA has learned, the minister, after having had several discussions with the parties involved, will not be present at the meeting in via Allegri.

A chess game in which each player aims to make his own move without exposing himself too much. It will not be the moment of checkmate today when, in view of the elections of next November 4, all the components, summoned by the president of the FIGC, Gabriele Gravina, will meet around a table to seek a point of agreement.

The object of contention is the new remodulation of the weights of Serie A in the electoral percentage phase in light of the Mulé amendment. It promises to be a tug of war because Serie B has also joined the Lega di A by deciding (unanimously in the assembly urgently convened this evening) to challenge at the National Federal Court the resolution with which the federal council decided to confirm the weights between the various components for the election of the next FIGC president.

The meeting will be attended by the president of Lega Serie A, Lorenzo Casini, that of Lega B, Mauro Balata as well as Matteo Marani for Lega Pro, Giancarlo Abete for Lnd. Then there will be Umberto Calcagno to represent the players, Renzo Ulivieri for the coaches and Carlo Pacifici for the referee component. READ FULL STORY HERE>>>CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE READING>>>

Serie A, in particular, and now Serie B are also waiting for answers after the announcement by president Casini of the intention to challenge the federal resolution. A card to be played, if necessary, but which does not represent “a hostile act but a technical defense. If the discussions were to be positive, we are ready to withdraw it”, Casini admitted. Serie B, following the same path, has given a mandate to its president, Mauro Balata, who in the last federal council had already expressed himself against the resolution, evaluating the need to wait for the approval of the ‘sports decree’. Balata himself had underlined the risk of going to FIGC elections with regulations that conflict and are certainly not adequate with the provision of the law that could come into force in the next few days. As for Serie A, it is certainly no mystery, in fact, that the request of the representatives of the highest Italian professional league is to arrive at a different distribution of federal weights with a preponderant weight recognized to Lega Serie A, together with a model of greater autonomy. In essence, therefore, the request is to see the current weight of 12% recognized to the top division increased to approximately double. A condition considered fundamental, but which will necessarily have to see one of the other components give up something. The time is tight, every discussion must be concluded by September 4, that is, 60 days before the elective assembly scheduled for November 4. Also on the table is the so-called “right of agreement”, that is, the possibility for the clubs to have a veto on every decision of the Football Federation regarding Serie A. It is likely that the game will not end with tomorrow’s meeting, others will be needed to find a definitive agreement but in the meantime the game has already begun.
