(Photo by Andrew D. Bernstein/NBAE via Getty Images) LAS VEGAS — Once again, Draymond Green was standing before his team apologizing. This time, at his request, he was addressing his cohorts on Team USA, being accountable for his July 10 arrest in East Lansing, Mich. Then Monday, at the first practice for USA Basketball in preparation for the Olympics in Brazil, Green was facing the media to explain his behavior. He was sprayed with questions about assault charges, his image, his propensity to end up in bad situations. The questions aren’t going away. That is the big lesson in this for Green and the Warriors: above reproach is required. With the magnifying glass on this team, everything will become a distraction. Splinters will become planks. What should be beautiful basketball can be derailed into a sideshow by poor judgment. “I’m not worried because every time draymond is in a situation, he learns from it,” Klay Thompson said after … [Read more...] about New standard for Draymond Green, Warriors is being above reproach because craziness is coming

Knowing a long term deal is not too far off, Tomas Hertl was pleased to sign a two-year bridge contract with the Sharks. (Photo by Nhat V. Meyer/Bay Area News Group) Tomas Hertl has officially signed his bridge contract with the Sharks that will pay him $6 million over the next two seasons. It won’t be long before Hertl and the Sharks re-enter negotiations for a longer contract that could make him one of the highest paid players on the team. “There’s no doubt he’s going to be a dominant player and there will be a longer term contract in his future,” Sharks general manager Doug Wilson said of Hertl on Thursday via conference call. “But this is how we’ve handled players coming through this system. I can’t say enough how much I appreciate Tomas giving us a bridge contract. That allows us to keep this type of team together as we go through it.” Bay Area News Group confirmed Hertl will be paid $2.8 million this upcoming season and $3.2 … [Read more...] about Sharks’ Tomas Hertl happy with deal, says he’ll be ready for season
With her Olympic races all completed, swimmer Katie Ledecky held a post-competition session with the media here Saturday. She brought along the four gold medals she won here, to join the gold she won in London four years ago. I was the Bay Area guy in the house so I naturally asked Ledecky about what comes next as she enters her freshman year at Stanford. Katie Ledecky, Rio de Janeiro, August 13, 2016 First things first will be introducing herself to her dormitory roommate. Whoever that might be. “At Stanford, you don’t find out your roommate until move-in day,” Ledecky said. “It’s pretty unique. I did find out yesterday, though, which dorm I’m in.” And that would be? “I’d rather not say,” she answered with a smile, which is understandable. But I’m trying to imagine what that move-in day will be like for the young woman who opens the door and sees that the other half of the dorm room is being occupied by Ledecky. Hi, I … [Read more...] about Katie Ledecky, Stanford freshman, won’t know her roommate until dorm move-in day–just imagine what that will be like

In May, over a hundred scientists and other interested parties attended a closed-door meeting at Harvard to discuss fabricating a human genome from scratch.Within my lifetime, it seems inevitable that genome production and gene-editing will eliminate many congenital diseases and even abate the aging process itself. Within your lifetime, if you are under 30, molecular biologists may be promising not just longevity, but immortality. Advertisement So we will be the last to die: Generation Death.
