Jerry Jones explains silence on Elliott, says team is ‘in support of Zeke’

In his first media availability since Ezekiel Elliott was suspended, Jerry Jones chose not to comment on the situation. The Dallas Cowboys owner will remain relatively quiet until a final decision on the suspension is made.

"I don't have anything to say about anything with the commissioner or with anything to do with Zeke at this particular time," Jones said Saturday after the Cowboys' preseason win, according to Kate Hairopoulos of the Dallas Morning News.

Elliott reportedly has an appeal hearing set for Aug. 29, and Jones said he wants to let that process play out before commenting, though he confirmed the Cowboys are supportive of their star rusher.

“Because I have said I just want to get my thoughts together, see some more cards played, and just see kind of how this thing turns out,” said Jones, when asked about why he won’t comment. “I know that they’ve got a real important date set and want that to have every opportunity it can to have things in its best light.

“But we certainly are in support of Zeke.”

Elliott dressed but didn't play in the Cowboys' contest Saturday, but Jones said he "wouldn't be surprised" if the running back got some snaps in the team's third preseason game.

Kevin Durant Says He Doesn’t Respect Donald Trump, Won’t Visit White House

Kevin Durant has emerged from his insular shell of late, using Twitter in a humorous fashion and showing more of his personality after winning that elusive chip with the Golden State Warriors this year. The custom of championship teams getting invited to the White House is usually a high honor, but the Prince George’s County superstar says his lack of respect for President Donald Trump would keep him away.

ESPN writes:

Kevin Durant says he will not visit President Donald Trump at the White House if the NBA champion Golden State Warriors are invited.

“Nah, I won’t do that,” said Durant, the 2017 NBA Finals MVP. “I don’t respect who’s in office right now.”

Durant spoke to ESPN on Thursday as his hometown of Seat Pleasant celebrated Kevin Durant Day for all of his achievements on and off the court.

The Warriors visit the nation’s capital Feb. 28 to take on the Washington Wizards. The White House has not extended a formal invitation to the Warriors.

Durant was back in his hometown of Seat Pleasant, Maryland Thursday to celebrate “Kevin Durant Day” and added in comments to the outlet that he believes his Warriors teammates would back him on his plan to opt out from the visit should the invitation come.

Beasley says he’s an unstoppable scorer who’s lacked opportunity

Former No. 2 overall pick and nine-year veteran Michael Beasley said the only thing that's held him back from NBA stardom has been a lack of opportunities.

Beasley, who signed with the New York Knicks on a one-year, veteran’s minimum contract this summer, promised to bring consistent scoring this season – if only his new team will give him the ball.

“I’ll bring what they saw in college,” Beasley told Marc Berman The Post. “I just need the opportunity to show that.”

The dynamic combo forward from Kansas State views himself as an unstoppable scorer who strikes fear into the heart of every defender matched up with him. He just wants a shot to earn that recognition from others.

“Look at my nine-year career, I’ve always been close to a point a minute,” Beasley said. “I’ve always been a walking bucket. Nobody can stop me, hasn’t stopped me my last nine years. Every time I’ve touched the ball, the defender’s scared. I’m at the point of my career I’m just tired of not getting the acknowledgement of being who I am.”

With career averages of 12.6 points in 23.5 minutes, Beasley has scored roughly a point every two minutes, but his point is valid – he’s a devastating scorer when hot. He’s lethal in isolation and his perimeter-based game is a mismatch for most forwards, featuring the skills that made him the second overall pick.

The problem is that just about everything else in Beasley’s game is lacking. He’s a passive defender, he doesn’t create for others, and his career true-shooting percentage sits at a paltry 51.4 percent. That’s why he hasn’t received many opportunities despite consistently playing on teams that needed more from him.

Nevertheless, the Knicks might be the team that can finally feed Beasley to his heart’s content. The inevitable Carmelo Anthony trade will leave behind a huge void in the offense, which Beasley intends to capitalize on.

“I’ve always been the quiet, not-stand-up-for-myself kind of guy,” he said. “Not being disrespectful. But I want my respect. For the last nine years, I’ve been a walking bucket, man. Anytime you want a point, I’ll give you a point, no matter what the circumstances, who the player is defending me.”

Is he trolling?

Power previously released a statement on the leaks and they’re fully investigating where they came from.

“The final three episodes of Power’s fourth season were leaked online due to a breach of the press screening room. This seems to be a case of password sharing that resulted in homemade videos of the episodes which were taped off a TV screen and posted online. Starz has begun forensic investigations and will take legal action against the responsible parties.”

You might be in trouble Fif…

Do YOU think 50 leaked episodes of “Power”???

Jesse Williams’ Wife Says He Has Violent Temper, Wants Sole Custody

The custody battle between actor Jesse Williams and his soon to be ex-wife is getting very ugly. In court documents, Aryn Drake-Lee says Williams has anger issues, among other descriptors, and wants sole custody of their children. 

Reports TMZ:

Aryn Drake-Lee has unloaded on the “Grey’s Anatomy” star, demanding sole custody for a variety of reasons. She says the children are being emotionally compromised because Jesse has exposed them to at least one intimate partner and possibly more. She wants the judge to order him to keep girlfriends away from the kids until he dates them for 6 months.

Aryn goes on, claiming Jesse has a violent temper and cites a road rage incident last month with his next-door neighbor. She says after an argument the neighbor flipped off Jesse, and he then “aggressively pursued him in his car” with their 2 kids inside. She says Jesse threatened to kill him.

She’s also pissed off that Jesse posts pics of their kids on social media and says he’s doing it as a “buffer for the negative talk about him in the media.”

Keep in mind that this is all in court documents, so it’s not like Drake-Lee went public with the sole cause of smearing Williams.

However, since the docs are public record, all the tea will be exposed.

Meanwhile, despite claiming she had nothing to do with the dissolution of his marriage, it seems like Williams is dating Minka Kelly.

Smith Jr. says Jackson, Knicks had him eat octopus at pre-draft meal

On Friday, deposed team president Phil Jackson was quoted as saying he wasn’t sure “WTF just went down the past three years of Knicks basketball.”

Apparently, some of that mystery involved octopus tentacle.

Point guard Dennis Smith Jr., who was selected No. 9 in June's NBA draft by the Dallas Mavericks, said the delicacy was prominently featured in a pre-draft dinner he had with Jackson and Knicks brass.

“We went out to some restaurant and they had me eat some octopus, like an actual octopus tentacle,” Smith Jr. told the New York Daily News’ Stefan Bondy. “First time ever. I wasn’t going to try it, honestly. They kind of put the pressure on me to do it.”

The Knicks ultimately passed on Smith Jr. at No. 8 in the draft, picking Frenchman Frank Ntilikina instead. That decision has been criticized in some quarters, given Smith Jr.’s explosiveness and perceived NBA-readiness.

“I definitely thought (the Knicks were) possible,” Smith Jr. said. “I flew in there, I had a great meeting with them. Then the draft came and things just changed. But I’m thankful for everything that did happen.”
