SAN FRANCISCO -- Nate Thurmond, the tenacious defensive center who played with Wilt Chamberlain and was an iconic figure in two cities, died Saturday after a short battle with leukemia. Adidas Pas Cher Soldes . He was 74.The Golden State Warriors announced the death of one of the teams most respected players less than a month after they lost the NBA Finals to the Cleveland Cavaliers in seven games. Both franchises previously retired the Akron, Ohio, natives No. 42.Thurmond played 11 of his 14 seasons with the Warriors and retired after the 1976-1977 season, one year after leading the Miracle Cavaliers to an improbable trip to the Eastern Conference finals.Without a doubt, he is one of the most beloved figures to ever wear a Warriors uniform, Golden State owner Joe Lacob said.Current Cavalier and Akron native LeBron James said on Twitter: Knowing u played in the same rec league as me growing up gave me hope of making it out! Thanks!The 6-foot-11 Thurmond was voted as one of the best 50 players in NBA history and is considered among the most dominating centers in the game. He was elected to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1985.Nate Thurmond was a giant of his era and one of the greatest players in the history of our game, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said in a statement.Thurmonds play and numbers werent flashy, but he earned the respect of his peers and knowledgeable basketball fans for his consistency, defense and strength.Looking back, he was as ferocious as any player in the history of the game on the court, but one of the kindest and nicest souls in his everyday life, former teammate and coach Al Attles said.Thurmond recorded the first official quadruple-double in NBA history as a Chicago Bull when he had 22 points, 14 rebounds, 13 assists and 12 blocked shots against the Atlanta Hawks in 1974. He is one of only four players to grab more than 40 rebounds in a game.Thurmond starred at Bowling Green, averaging 17.8 points and 17.0 rebounds in three seasons. He was selected third overall by the Warriors in the 1963 draft.Thurmond apprenticed under Hall of Fame center Wilt Chamberlain until the Warriors traded Chamberlain to the Philadelphia 76ers in the middle of the 1964-65 season. Thurmond went on to average 15 points and 15 rebounds during his career and still holds the Warriors franchise records for career rebounds and minutes.We have lost an incredible person and someone whom I admired as much as any player I ever went to battle against on any level, Hall of Famer Jerry West said. Nate Thurmond was, without a doubt, one of the fiercest competitors that I played against during my entire career. He played with unbelievable intensity and was simply a man among boys on most nights, especially on the defensive end.The Warriors traded Thurmond to the Bulls prior to the 1974-75 season. The Bulls dealt him after 13 games the next season to his hometown Cavaliers, where he closed out his career in style.He played a key role in the Cavaliers most memorable season before James. They beat the Washington Bullets in seven games to get to the 1976 Eastern Conference finals, where they lost to the Boston Celtics in six games, but Thurmonds leadership that season made him a local legend.Cleveland teammate Campy Russell said Saturday that the Cavaliers franchise will always love and respect him as a true Cavalier legend.Though he played less than two seasons for the Cavaliers at the end of his career, his jersey number was the first retired by the team.After the seven-time All-Star selection retired, he worked for the Warriors as a community liaison and broadcast analyst until his illness sidelined him earlier this year.Nate brought the same passion to his longtime community-relations role with the Golden State Warriors, who benefited from his deep knowledge of the game and warmth and kindness to everyone he encountered for more than 30 years, Silver said in his statement.Thurmond also opened a popular barbecue restaurant in San Francisco called Big Nates BBQ, which he sold in 2011.

Chaussure Adidas Pas Cher Chine . -- In one brief spurt, Brazil turned a close game into a rout and proved again it will be a strong World Cup favourite. . MLS Commissioner Don Garber and Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez also will attend the session, which was announced Monday. The league has discussed placing its next two expansion teams in Miami and Atlanta. HOCKENHEIM, Germany -- Lewis Hamilton delivered a crushing blow to Nico Rosberg in the 2016 title fight after victory at the German Grand Prix saw him extend his lead in the standings to 19 points.The Red Bulls managed to claim the remaining two places on the podium after Rosberg made an awful start from pole position and then saw his fightback hamstrung by a penalty for a botched overtaking move on Max Verstappen. Daniel Ricciardo took second ahead Verstappen after a gritty performance saw the Australian make the most of a better tyre strategy to beat his teenage teammate.Hamiltons victory never really looked in doubt and the pressure is now on Rosberg heading into Formula Ones month-long summer break. Over the last seven races Hamilton has outscored his teammate by 62 points and in doing so turned a 43-point deficit into a 19-point advantage. Rosberg will no doubt leave Germany feeling hard done by after he recovered from a poor start and a slow first pit stop to overtake Verstappen for second on lap 30. However, it was that passing move that led to the five-second penalty at his final stop and ultimately dropped him back behind Verstappen where he had to settle for fourth.The overtaking move was a controversial one. Rosberg threw his car up the inside of the Red Bull at Turn 6 and deep into the corner, forcing Verstappen wide and off the track on the exit. Onboardd footage clearly showed that Rosberg did not apply full steering lock until Verstappen was running out of space at the edge of the track, and it was this for which Rosberg was penalised.

Rosberg took exception to Verstappen cutting across on him under braking -- a tactic the Dutch teenager was also criticised for at last weekends Hungarian Grand Prix -- but the stewards saw no problem with the Red Bull drivers defence.?Ricciardo was then shuffled ahead of Verstappen ahead of the final pit stop and was closing on Rosberg just before Mercedes called its driver in for his final pit stop. With his penalty hanging over him, Rosberg was required to sit stationary in the pit box for five seconds before his mechanics went to work changing his tyres. In reality, however, he stood there for over eight before a slow tyre change sent him back on track with a total stationary time of 12 seconds. Rosberg resumed in fourth place behind both Red Bulls but did not have the pace to challenge in the closing stages, bringing to an end a disappointing home grand prix.Although he has insisted again and again that he is not thinking about the championship, Rosberg now has four weeks to contemplate the result ahead of the next grand prix in Belgium.
