His driving layup put the Hornets up 82-79 with 8:15 remaining.“That was vintage Tony,” Borrego said. “We’ve seen that before many times in this building.”Parker exited shortly after that and did not return until fans demanded it by chanting his name again with 17.6 seconds left. Borrego, a former Spurs assistant, granted their wish and put Parker in amid loud cheers that continued until he came out.“I thought they supported Tony, like I expected,” San Antonio point guard Derrick White said. “He did great things for the organization. It’s well deserved. Definitely good to see him. Wish him the best.”Parker had a long embrace with Popovich following the game as fans cheered.The Spurs’ ideology has stuck with Parker, who jokingly got angry with his teammates after the win.“They wanted it bad,” Parker said. “Before the game they were like, ‘We’re going to do this for you Tony, you deserve it.’ They played so hard that after the game I’m like, ‘Why don’t we play like that every road game? Come on guys.’”The jubilation in the stands came despite a rough night for the hometown team.The Spurs opened the game on an 11-3 run but the Hornets followed with a 25-7 spurt to take their first double-digit lead at 28-18.San Antonio struggled offensively, with two of its top five scorers, Rudy Gay and Marco Belinelli, both out with injuries.

I think it’s a pretty good ending to a fun night.”The Spurs honored Parker before the game with a two-minute video of his career highlights in San Antonio, including being drafted with the 28th pick in 2001 and his four NBA championships with the team. After the video, the Spurs’ retired jerseys appeared on the video monitors and an empty spot in the rafters was shown to signify Parker’s future place among them. The crowd roared in appreciation, chanting “Tony! Tony! Tony!”“I expected nothing less,” said Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, who considers Parker like a son. “Tony is a wonderful human being.

  • Soccer City welcomes the world home

    first_img12 June 2010 As Johannesburg’s flagship Soccer City stadium seethed in a mass of yellow and brightly coloured flags on Friday afternoon, the hum of tens of thousands of vuvuzelas was suddenly overcome as Gripen Fighter jets burst overhead. Africa’s first Fifa World Cup was opening in spectacular fashion. As the smoke cleared, five jets, their tails emblazed with the South African flag, sent the crowd’s excitement levels sky rocketing. The moment a nation had been counting down towards for more than six years had arrived. “Fellow Africans, today we rewrite history. Because we have brought the World Cup to our soil,” cried out Zolani Mkhiva, the “Poet of Africa”. Mkhiva is the youngest practitioner of kubonga (praise singing), one of Africas oldest oral traditions. Nine drummers from nine different directions converged in a ring around the praise singer. The pitch became awash with colour as 270 women in brightly coloured blankets formed lines behind the drummers. The lines pointed in the direction of the nine other stadiums in nine host cities where the story of the 2010 Fifa World Cup will emerge over the coming month. In total more than 1 500 South African artists, dancers, musicians and performers between the ages of six and 60 welcomed the world to Africa – an Africa of hope, colour, energy and boundless potential. They sang and danced to songs ranging from uQongothwane, made famous by the late Miriam Makeba, to Didi sung by North Africa’s Khaled, whose song paid tribute to all six African teams, the most ever to be represented at a Fifa World Cup. Johannesburg had awoken to a grey and cold day on Friday, but as a massive patchwork quilt of the African continent was revealed to the world, there was no longer a cloud in the sky. The African sun poured into the “calabash” stadium, warmly welcoming a watching world back to the cradle of civilisation. Multiple Grammy award winner R Kelly and the Soweto Spiritual Singers left the audience elated in the ceremony’s moving showpiece song “Sign of a Victory”, which recognised all 208 original member associations that competed for a place in the 2010 Fifa World Cup and the 32 nations that were ultimately successful. The ceremony ended, the protective sheet was removed, and the sounds of the vuvuzela rose again as South Africa rejoiced. With the lines of the pitch revealed – all set for the opening clash between Mexico and South Africa – South Africans and hundreds of millions of viewers in 215 countries were left ready to experience the football that everyone has been waiting for.

  • J&K Governor regrets remark asking gunmen to target corrupt politicians

    first_imgJammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik has regretted his remark asking “militants to go after corrupt politicians and bureaucrats,” a statement that drew sharp reactions from the regional parties on Monday.“As Governor, I should not have made such a comment. But my personal feeling is what I said. Many political leaders and big bureaucrats are steeped in corruption here,” Mr Malik said while clarifying his earlier statement. “The statement was made in a fit of anger and frustration due to rampant corruption in J&K.”Mr. Malik irked regional parties with the remark he made in Kargil on Sunday. “These boys [militants] who have picked up guns are killing their own people; they are killing PSOs [personal security officers] and SPOs [special police officers]. Why are you killing them? Kill those who have looted the wealth of Kashmir. Have you killed any of them?” the Governor had said.In a sharp reaction, National Conference (NC) vice-president and former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah said, “Save this tweet — after today any mainstream politician or serving/retired bureaucrat killed in J&K has been murdered on the express orders of the Governor of J&K Satyapal Malik,” tweeted Mr. Abdullah.“This man, ostensibly a responsible man occupying a constitutional position…Perhaps the man should find out about his own reputation in Delhi these days before sanctioning unlawful killings and kangaroo courts,” Mr. Abdullah had said.In his retort, Mr. Malik said, “He [Mr. Abdullah] is a political juvenile tweeting on everything. I ask him to evaluate my reputation here and his own too.”The Governor said he had risen from a one-and-a-half room. “I belong to no dynasty. I don’t cash in on my father or grandfather’s name. Let me make it clear, I will expose all corrupt names in J&K.”Systemic problemsMeanwhile, in a direct message to the Centre, Mr. Abdullah said there were a lot of systemic problems in J&K. “Participatory democracy and empowered institutions will contribute to solutions being found…. the key word here being participatory.”He also questioned the Centre’s move on empowerment of Panchayats and Urban Local Bodies. “Why do we ignore the reality that many seats in the Valley are vacant, the ones that were filled either won unopposed or with a negligible participation of voters?” he added.‘Nail corrupt elements’J&K Peoples Movement chief Shah Faesal welcomed “any steps to nail corrupt elements.”“Eliminating corruption from J&K will need the Government to rise above party affiliations and act against high and mighty, whichever party they belong to, rather than making it look like an operation against the opposition,” said Mr. Faesal.Awami Ittehad Party head Engineer Rashid said the Governor’s appeal to militants should be seen in the right perspective. “Militants are not aliens. One way or the other, governance should be their concern as well,” he said.Peoples Conference vice-president Abdul Gani Vakil said the reason for the current turmoil “was the corrupt politics of the NC and the PDP.” However, he was quick to add: “Mr. Malik’s drive to eradicate corruption is welcome, but his utterances are absolutely irresponsible and unbecoming of any head of the State.”last_img read more
