And Steve Nash was the same way.”There are other strong contenders outside of Kidd and Nash, with Hill’s college success and Allen’s prolific shooting marking the strongest arguments for each of their respective candidacies.Allen’s 2,973 three-pointers made are the most in NBA history. He won NBA titles with the Boston Celtics in 2008 and Miami Heat in 2013, memorably sending Game 6 to overtime on a tying 3-pointer with 5.2 seconds left in regulation.Hill was a two-time national champion and two-time All-American at Duke, but injuries kept him from reaching the same heights in the NBA during his 19-year career.Charles “Lefty” Driesell, Rudy Tomjanovich and Baylor’s Kim Mulkey made the final ballot as coaches.

first_imgAustria admits Beermen lacked any effort in Game 4 loss View comments Barangay Ginebra coach Tim Cone didn’t have to look far to find reasons to fear the San Miguel Beermen even after the Gin Kings blew them out in Game 4 of the PBA Commissioner’s Cup Finals.ADVERTISEMENT Ginebra beat San Miguel, 127-99, in Game 1, but the Beermen bounced back with a vengeance, winning the next two games by an average margin of 31.5 points, including a 38-point victory on Wednesday.The series has become impossible to predict but Cone thinks there’s going to be a game that’s going to end the trend of blowouts.READ: Austria admits Beermen lacked any effort in Game 4 loss“I think there are close games out there. I don’t think either coach Leo (Austria) or I wanna play this kind of games. It’s great if you’re on one side of it but the other side is terrible. You feel so helpless, you go home and you can sleep. It’s really hard to lose those guys like that,” he said.“But like I said, I have no idea what’s gonna happen in Game 5 after this.”ADVERTISEMENT All Cone had to do was to look back at Games 2 and 3 to know what to expect from the Beermen two nights from now.“I guess the last thing to say is this doesn’t very secure us for Game 5,” Cone told reporters after Ginebra whipped San Miguel, 130-100, on Friday night.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone still willing to coach Gilas but admits decision won’t be ‘simple yes or no’READ: PBA Finals: Brownlee, Ginebra tie series with 30-point rout of San Miguel“We don’t know what’s gonna happen in Game 5 but you’d think because you won big now you feel good going into Game 5,” he said. “All it does is just scare me even more because we’ve seen their fight coming out of the last time we did this so we’ll see.” Peza offers relief to ecozone firms Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Palace OKs total deployment ban on Kuwait OFWs Gov’t in no rush to rescue animals in Taal ‘High crimes and misdemeanors’: Trump impeachment trial begins In fight vs corruption, Duterte now points to Ayala, MVP companies as ‘big fish’ Judy Ann’s 1st project for 2020 is giving her a ‘stomachache’ Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
