NEW YORK -- NBA players arent just worried about their teams as they start a new season. Throwback Browns Jerseys .Theyre concerned for their country.The usual basketball clich?s that dominate media days gave way to serious talk about social injustice and violence in communities, with players wanting to be involved in finding solutions but acknowledging they dont know yet how.Some of the things that Ive been addressing over this past summer, I think were still in the same state. I think its actually getting worse and it will continue to get worse, Knicks All-Star Carmelo Anthony said Monday. We still have to kind of keep the conversations going.Anthony was among the highest-profile and most outspoken players following the killing of black men by police in Louisiana and Minnesota in July, joining friends and fellow stars LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Paul in a powerful opening to the ESPY Awards and continuing to speak out while playing for the U.S. Olympic team.But recent killings by police in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Charlotte, North Carolina, captured on video have convinced those players that progress they seek hasnt arrived.Obviously, I know things dont happen overnight, but it doesnt seem like there is any change, James told The Associated Press. We just want the conversation to continue to be, `Who are our leaders? Who are our true leaders that are going to help us change whats going on? Everyone is looking for that and no one knows.Players praised San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick for bringing attention with his peaceful protest of kneeling during the national anthem. James, Anthony, NBA MVP Stephen Curry and others said they would continue to stand -- as NBA rules stipulate -- and hoped players could find meaningful ways to work with their teammates instead of individually.Am I going to kneel down and put my fist up? No, Im not. Thats no disrespect to Colin or anybody else thats doing it. But theyve gotten the point across, said Draymond Green, Currys Golden State teammate. I dont think I need to come out and do a national anthem protest, because its already started. Theres already a conversation. But like I said, is there going to be something done about it?Protests over the killing of Keith Lamont Scott in Charlotte turned violent, with Mayor Jennifer Roberts imposing a curfew. Miami Heat center Hassan Whiteside still calls the area home and was troubled by it.Weve just got to get an understanding of it, Whiteside told the AP. Theres not really one way to fix the problem. Its been going on for a while. People are sick of it.Brooklyns Jeremy Lin said hes thankful theres more awareness about a problem that was long ignored, but is worried about some of the heated reactions they produced.I just know that right now, talking to different parties and seeing both sides, theres just a lot of tension and hostility and I dont think thats going to get it done, Lin said. I think thats going to harbor more violence.Most teams will begin practicing Tuesday. Among the basketball news Monday:NO MORE BOSH IN MIAMI: Chris Bosh appears to have played his final game with the Heat. Team President Pat Riley said Bosh, who failed a physical last week and wasnt cleared by team doctors to return after missing the second half of last season, is open-minded, but we are not working toward his return .ONE MORE FOR PIERCE IN L.A.: Los Angeles Clippers forward Paul Pierce wrote on The Players Tribune that this season, his 19th, would be his last. Pierce, who will turn 39 next month , is 16th on the NBAs career scoring list.NO WORRIES: Derrick Rose said he isnt worried about a rape trial set to start in California on Oct. 4, the date of his first preseason game with the New York Knicks. Its unclear how much, if any, of the preseason Rose would have to miss if there is no settlement in the civil suit. I feel like Im innocent and I feel like I didnt do anything wrong, like I said, and I cant let that distract me with the year that I have ahead of me, Rose said.INJURY UPDATES: Marc Gasols broken right foot is recovered from surgery in February and the Memphis Grizzlies center said he can be a better player, more productive, more consistent . But All-Star guard John Wall will only participate in bits and pieces of Washington Wizards training camp as he rebounds from offseason knee surgery. He is recovering from surgeries on both knees in May.OLD HOMES, NEW BEGINNINGS: Wade and Dwight Howard slipped into the jerseys of teams they rooted for as kids Monday. Howard said joining his hometown Atlanta Hawks was a dream come true after enduring rocky stints with the Lakers and Rockets, while Wade is getting to work with the Chicago Bulls after making 12 All-Star teams in 13 years in Miami.---AP Basketball Writer Tim Reynolds in Miami, AP Sports Writer Tom Withers in Cleveland and freelance writer Mike Scotto in New York contributed to this report. Simeon Thomas Jersey . Following a lopsided 5-2 loss against the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday night, Paul MacLean told reporters that "theres a lack of focus, theres a lack of leadership and theres a lack of preparation" with his struggling team. That came on the heels of Bryan Murray taking the unusual step of going into the locker room at the Prudential Center and addressing the players himself. Womens Browns Jerseys . "We have always prided ourselves on the way we play defence. Having two big pieces back is going to be a key for us moving forward for years to come," said Knighthawks head coach Mike Hasen. http://www.officialbrownsnflauthenticsho...titched-jersey/ . But what about the officials? Every sport has officials and they also have stories about hard work and sacrifice but their accomplishments are seldom recognized by anyone outside their inner circle. Former Balmain and England star Garry Schofield has called for a major English influx into the NRL to boost the countrys flagging fortunes.The Golden Boot winner wants to see Great Britain increase its representation in the Australian competition to 60 players.England coach Wayne Bennett has chosen eight players who featured in the NRL in 2016 in his 19-man squad for Saturdays Four Nations opener against New Zealand.New Zealand are the worlds top-ranked side, but the star-studded Kangaroos head into the Four Nations tournament as favourites and will be considered hard to beat at next years World Cup.Great British and English teams have not beaten Australia in an Ashes series since 1970 and they have never won the Tri-Nations or Four Nations.The last time they lifted the World Cup was 1972 and their last Test win over the Kangaroos was when Great Britain triumphed 23-12 in the Four Nations in 2006.Schofield, who played 46 games for the Tigers in the 1980s, said Englishmen who went to the NRL returned better players.It is intense week-in week-out. It madde us better players, Schofield told Sky Sports Radio. Cheap Browns Jerseys. For us to get better at international level, and to be consistent at international level, I would like to see 40, 50, 60 of our fellas playing in the NRL because it is the best competition in the world.Former captain Schofield played 49 times for England and Great Britain, winning the Golden Boot Award for worlds best player in 1990.Schofield said the form of English-born NRL players Josh Hodgson, Elliott Whitehead, James Graham and Sam Burgess showed the country was headed in the right direction.And that coupled with the guidance of Brisbane supercoach Bennett could have them upsetting Australia and New Zealand at upcoming tournaments, according to Schofield.The mental game that Wayne Bennett has, if he can get the best out of the players for the 80 minutes, who knows, we could win the Four Nations and really give the World Cup a big shake-up, Schofield said.
