iness perspective and a commercial stan

CLEVELAND - The chemistry has been slow to develop. The rookie coach is under fire. The record isnt nearly what its supposed to be.No, the Cleveland Cavaliers arent having the season everyone expected. Not even close. And now, superstar LeBron James will sit out for at least two weeks.The championship chase is now a crawl.James was diagnosed with strains to his left knee and lower back and will be sidelined until they heal. In the meantime, the Cavs need to get themselves patched up.The injuries to the four-time NBA MVP have threatened to capsize his homecoming season in Cleveland and further hinder the struggling Cavs, who have been jarred by a rash of medical issues and havent lived up to the enormous expectations triggered by James re-signing as a free agent last summer.James injuries added to a turbulent week in which there has been growing speculation about coach David Blatts future, James commitment to Cleveland was again questioned, forward Kevin Love was sidelined with back spasms and starting forward Anderson Varejao underwent season-ending surgery after tearing his Achilles.The Cavs (18-14) have lost three straight games and four of five heading into Fridays matchup in Charlotte. James, who missed the previous two games, didnt make the trip and its not clear when hell rejoin his teammates, some of whom are about to be reminded what the previous four years were like without him.But even when James has been at full strength — he said Wednesday that his knee has bothered him most of the season — the Cavs have not clicked at either end of the floor. Blatt has struggled trying to find the right rotations and the former international coaching legend is still adjusting to the NBA game.Cleveland has lacked defensive intensity, the bench has been inconsistent at best and the Cavs arent deep enough to handle any significant injuries.Compounding things for Blatt was a report that theres concern within the organization that he doesnt seem to be connecting with his players. Blatt, who was hired before James decided to come back to Ohio, believes he and the 10-time All-Star are on the same page and their relationship is growing.But until the losses turn to wins, the pressure will only increase the scrutiny on Blatt, whose external challenge was to get his team playing at a championship level right away. James had preached patience in the poignant essay he wrote in July, saying the team would need time to jell.However, the teams acquisition of Love in a blockbuster trade made the Cavs title favourites.They dont look like one.The Cavs were thin up front before Varejao went down, and general manager David Griffin has explored trades to bring in a rim-protecting big man and help for the bench. But Clevelands problems may run deeper than that, and James health has suddenly added an unexpected hurdle.The games most dynamic player, James, who turned 30 on Tuesday, hasnt been himself all season. He came into his 12th year lighter than ever after a substantial weight loss this summer. He looks different and so does his game as James has not shown the same explosiveness while driving to the basket and hes been willing to defer to teammates.Last week, James said he was playing in chill mode, a comment some construed as pacing himself for the grind ahead.He acknowledged his body has taken a beating.Ive got 41,000 minutes on me, including the playoffs, he joked. You drive that car in the winter time.James has never missed more than five straight games in his professional career. If the two-week timetable holds up, his absence could reach 10 games or more. By the time he gets back, the Cavs, who have a five-game West Coast trip coming up, could have a losing record. That would be unimaginable if not for their previous problems.Fortunately, the Cavs play in the Eastern Conference, where anything over 35 wins will likely earn a playoff spot.But this season promised to be more, so much more than that for Cleveland. This was supposed to be a run at long-sought championship, which currently seems far away. David Silva Spain Jersey . James Erskine said Tuesday that Thorpe was "quite sick" in a Sydney hospital but dismissed media reports the swimmer might lose the use of his left arm. "Hes not in the intensive care," Erskine said. Dani Carvajal Spain Jersey . Its other five picks were all six foot or better, with three at 6-1 or above. Third-round pick Brett Lernout stands six foot four and weighs 206 pounds. http://www.spainsoccerpro.com/Cesar-Azp … n-Jersey/. -- Broncos defensive end Derek Wolfe was alert and recovering at a Denver hospital Saturday after suffering seizure-like symptoms when the teams bus pulled into the airport Friday afternoon for the flight to Kansas City. Rodrigo Moreno Spain Jersey . -- The Windsor Spitfires were left with just one goaltender Tuesday after having their starter walk out on them midway through Game 3 of their Ontario Hockey League playoff matchup with the London Knights. Marco Asensio Spain Jersey . - Gary Kubiak is John Elways No.CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Liverpool will play Manchester City, AC Milan and Olimpiakos during a preseason U.S. exhibition tour, and Manchester United will face Inter Milan and Roma. Liverpool opens against Olimpiakos on July 27 at Chicagos Soldier Field as part of Group B in the eight-club Guinness International Champions Cup, organizers said Thursday. The Reds face Manchester City at New Yorks Yankee Stadium on July 30 and AC Milan on Aug. 2 at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, N.C., home of the NFLs Carolina Panthers. Manchester United plays Roma at Denvers Sports Authority Field on July 26, then meets Inter Milan on July 29 at FedEx Field in Landover, Md. In other games in the tournament, AC Milan plays Olimpiakos at New Yorks Citi Field on July 24 and Manchester City faces Olimpiakos at Minneapolis TCF Bank Stadium on Aug. 2. Other group Group A matches include Real Madrid-Inter at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz., on July 26; Real Madrid-Roma at Dallas Cotton Bowl on July 29; and Inter-Roma at Philadelphias Lincoln Financial Field on Aug. 2. The site of the Manchester United-Real Madrid match on Aug. 2 was not announced. This will be the seventh U.S. trip for Liverpool, which is owned by Fenway Sports Group, the parent company of the Boston Red Sox. "Touring from a business perspective and a commercial standpoint, its incredibly important," Liverpool chief commercial officer Billy Hogan said during a news conference in Charlotte. "Its something we do to try to bring the club closer to our fan base. We have hundreds of millions of fans around the world ffrom the U.ddddddddddddS. to Asia. ... Not everybody gets a chance to get to see where we play in Liverpool. Its a 3,800-mile flight. So were excited to bring the first team out here." Some stars may not be available for the matches, depending on when their national teams are eliminated from the World Cup. The final will be Aug. 4 at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla. The match in Charlotte will be the first sporting event at Bank of America Stadium after it completes a $112.5 million renovation. The city agreed to pay part of the renovation cost in exchange for the Panthers hosting five rent-free events annually over the next six years. "Our ultimate goal with getting international soccer here was to secure an event that has a strong potential for significant economic impact," Charlotte Mayor Patrick Cannon said. "The teams announced here today can certainly help us achieve that." Cannon said Liverpools visit to Boston and Fenway Park in 2012 generated $9.4 million in visitor spending. Cannon wants to attract more soccer games to Charlottes stadium, which was completed in 1996 and was built with sightlines for football and soccer in mind. "Bringing two high calibre teams here is something our soccer community will treasure and remember for the rest of their lives," Cannon said. Liverpool, led by midfielder Steven Gerrard and forward Luis Suarez, has 18 English league championships — but none since 1990 — and five Champions League titles. AC Milan has won 18 Series A championships and seven Champions League titles.
