Knicks’ Enes Kanter to skip London trip, fearing Erdogan reprisal

first_imgKanter will stay in New York while the Knicks travel to face Washington at The O2 arena in London on Jan. 17. He says he can’t travel anywhere except the U.S. and Canada because “there’s a chance I could get killed out there.”“Sadly, I’m not going because of that freaking lunatic, the Turkish president,” Kanter said. “It’s pretty sad that all the stuff affects my career and basketball, because I want to be out there and help my team win. But just because of the one lunatic guy, one maniac, one dictator, I can’t even go out there and do my job. It’s pretty sad.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissKanter has been a vocal critic of Erdogan for years, once referring to him as “the Hitler of our century.” Kanter’s Turkish passport was revoked in 2017, and an international warrant for his arrest was issued by Turkey.Kanter is a follower of a U.S.-based Turkish cleric accused by Turkey’s government of masterminding a failed military coup in 2016.

Lallana: I’m good friends with Pochettino… but I don’t want to leave Liverpool

first_imgAdam Lallana insists he has no desire to leave Liverpool for Tottenham this summer.The midfielder’s former manager at Southampton, Mauricio Pochettino, is eager to be reunited with the 28-year-old at White Hart Lane.According to widespread reports, Pochettino has made Lallana his top summer transfer target and Spurs have set aside £20million to try and lure him away from Anfield.But, while Lallana admits he is still close to the Argentine, the 28-year-old says there is no reason for him to leave Liverpool.After a slow start to his Reds career, the England international has become a key part of the team under Jurgen Klopp and is set to start Wednesday’s Europa League final.“I’ve got three years left on my contract here,” Lallana said.“It was only last season that people might have read that I was leaving and thought ‘Yes, let’s get him out’. But football changes very quickly and I’m really enjoying my football under this manager.“I’ve always had a good relationship with Pochettino. We are very good friends off the pitch now. But it would be very difficult (to leave).“I am at a massive club here and playing some of my best football for the club, getting to cup finals.” 1 Adam Lallana shares a joke with Danny Ings during a Liverpool training session last_img read more

Surfing film to make a splash in Bundoran

first_imgA high-action film about surfing and travel will be given a special screening next week in Bundoran – our very own surf capital. Risky Business is a surf film about big, risky waves from the four corners of the world. It stars South African professional big wave surfer Matt Bromley. The 25-minute film will be shown at the Eclipse Cinema Bundoran at 6pm on Friday 25 November.The fast-paced film captures the journey of South African surfer Matt Bromley and filmer Guy Macindoe while they travel to some of the riskier places on earth in their pursuit of surf perfection. Their amazing water adventures see them surfing between icebergs in Iceland, charging massive mountains of water at Jaws in Hawaii, and dropping into near-dry tubes over unforgiving ledges in Africa.The film shows the risks behind the reward of chasing global swells on a shoe-string budget, all the while living every surfers’ dream for a year between South Africa, Europe, Hawaii, Iceland and Indonesia.Risky Business will be inspiring the audience at Donegal’s coast in Bundoran to stretch the boundaries of their own capacity, flee their comfort zones, and chase all things bigger and better. The creators Matt and Guy both stretched themselves to make this film a reality; travelling in debt and in fear of not knowing what was around the next swell.All their equipment was stolen in Portugal and they suffered many other hardships along the way, but as Matt reports, “It was worth every moment of risk, and made the journey and experience that much more unforgettable.”Surfing film to make a splash in Bundoran was last modified: November 17th, 2016 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:bundorancinemasurfinglast_img read more
