Watch: Richt sticks annual backflip off high dive perfectly

The annual tradition of Mark Richt’s backflip off a high dive continued on Friday night, as the Miami head coach stuck this year’s version perfectly.

Richt began the practice during his highly-successful 15-year run at Georgia, and brought it to Miami when he took the position prior to last season.

The 57-year-old learned the move during his days as a student at Miami in the late 1970s from a fairly accomplished teacher, Olympic gold medalist Greg Louganis.

“We would watch him,” Richt told Campus Insiders last year. “You’d go to the pool, because that’s where the girls were, right? So we’d watch the divers work out and say, that guy’s pretty good. Turns out he was the best in the world, like, ever.”

Maryland Governor Looks Into Allegations Of Graduation Fraud In PG County

Prince George’s County has 5 of the top 10 richest Black neighborhoods in America according to Atlanta Black Star. It stands to reason that communities like PG County where there are stable homes and economic empowerment would likely yield an above average high school graduation rate.

However, according to the Washington Post, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan is skeptical of all the #blackexcellence taking place just outside the nation’s capitol.

Governor Hogan has launched an investigation into PG County school’s where there have been allegations that teachers are finessing students’ grades to increase the graduation rate.

The CEO of Prince George’s County Schools, Kevin Maxwell, denies any such thing.

We’re definitely gonna keep an eye on this one. If Governor Hogan doesn’t come back with some hard evidence then this whole investigation into one of the wealthiest Black communities in America is gonna look REAL funny in the light.


Report: Celtics believe Pacers’ price for George too high

The Boston Celtics may have significant interest in trading for Paul George, but they appear unwilling to overpay for the All-Star forward.

Boston is currently waiting to hear back from Indiana general manager Kevin Pritchard, but views the Pacers' current price for George as too high, a league source told Mark Murphy of the Boston Herald. Indiana recently asked for the both the Brooklyn Nets' and Los Angeles Lakers' 2018 first-rounders (which Boston owns), and a starter for George, according to Murphy.

Reports surfaced earlier this week that the Celtics were working on a plan to land both George and fellow All-Star Gordon Hayward this summer.

The Celtics aren’t the only team looking to nab the seven-year veteran, as the Los Angeles Lakers and Houston Rockets have reportedly also expressed interest.

The four-time All-Star averaged 23.7 points, 6.6 rebounds, 3.3 assists, and 1.6 steals on 46.1 percent shooting in 75 games for the Pacers this past season.

Report: Knicks’ price for Porzingis too high

It didn’t take long Tuesday for Kristaps Porzingis trade rumors to be walked back somewhat. While New York Knicks president Phil Jackson may be willing to discuss the prized 21-year-old, the return price is described as “high,” according to ESPN’s Zach Lowe and The Vertical’s Chris Mannix.

The initial report was met with bewilderment among NBA observers – especially Knicks fans – and undoubtedly unleashed a flurry of trade inquiries from around the league to Jackson's front office. Within two hours of the story surfacing, a report indicated the Boston Celtics were interested in Porzingis.

With the Knicks’ all-but-stated intention to move Carmelo Anthony this summer, trading Porzingis would generally be viewed as sacrilege among Knicks fans, given that he represents the cornerstone of the franchise’s future. Ultimately, while Jackson is within his boundaries to do all due diligence privately, the report was another reflection of his much-maligned performance running the Knicks.
