Newly obtained photos show the injuries on Brown’s face and the marks on his back that were left by the Taser. Video shows how officers continued to surround Brown after he was on the ground handcuffed.
“You’re stepping on my ankle, for what?” Brown is heard saying.
“So you don’t kick us,” an officer responds.
“I ain’t got no reason to kick y’all, man,” Brown replied.
It’s then when officers appeared to realized who Brown was. Asked if he played for the Bucks, Brown responded: “What you think? I look familiar, don’t I?”
At one point, an officer converses with two others who were seated in a squad car. Their conversation expresses concern about how the arrest will later be viewed.
“The bureau is coming out for this? … We’re trying to protect ourselves .. because he plays for the Bucks, and if he makes a complaint, it’s going to be a [expletive]. … And then any little [expletive] thing that goes wrong is going to be, ‘Ooh, the Milwaukee Police Department is all racist…. blah, blah, blah. “
I wish people cared more about whether they’re actually doing racist things, intentionally or not, than whether they’ll be perceived as racist.
Report: Philadelphia tried to recruit Daryl Morey as new GM, was rebuffed
The analytics movement is not dead in Philadelphia.
The Sixers are still searching for a new general manager to replace Bryan Colangelo (who had to resign in the wake of a Twitter scandal), and the rumors have always been about the big guns. David Griffin, the former Cleveland GM inexplicably let go by that franchise, is a name that kept coming up.
But the home of “The Process” wanted to jump back into the analytics waters and try to land the Rockets’ Dayrl Morey, the face of the NBA’s analytics movement. That was shot down, reports Marc Stein of the New York Times.
The Philadelphia 76ers have been rebuffed in their attempt to hire away Houston's Daryl Morey to take over as their new general manager, @NYTSports has learned
The 76ers had great interest in Morey — freshly voted as the league's Executive of the Year — to replace the ousted Bryan Colangelo. But Morey couldn't be lured away from the Rockets, with whom he has spent the last 12 seasons. https://t.co/H7ZupxCF7c
The Sixers are swinging for the fences right now — they met with LeBron James in free agency, they have tried to get in on the Kawhi Leonard trade sweepstakes, they wanted to meet with Paul George — and landing Morey fits in that mold. Philadelphia already has Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid in house, and feels they are on the verge of contention for years, but that they need one more piece. Morey is not that piece, but the guy who traded for James Harden and Chris Paul in Houston could get someone to come to Philly.
Morey is happy in Houston, however, and he’s staying put.
Instead, the Sixers search will continue. In the interim, coach Brett Brown is filling in a dual role (and doing a solid job, but with the recent run of struggles for teams that had a coach filling both positions it’s unlikely they keep this arrangement long term).
French World Cup star Antoine Griezmann interrupts post-win interview to shout out Derrick Rose
Antoine Griezmann was one of the stars for France’s World Cup victory — he scored on a penalty kick against Croatia in the Final, helping France to the 4-2 win. He had four goals over the course of the tournament, all scored with his left foot. The Atlético Madrid star is one of the world’s great strikers.
Golden State head coach Steve Kerr and assistant coach Ron Adams didn’t go along with that narrative. Now, another Warriors assistant is explaining more clearly just what the heck West was talking about.
