On this weeks Three Man Weave, Will Strickland and Duane Watson of TSN 1050s 1 On 1 With Will and Duane draft, #1On1 occasional guest co-host and Canadas first female pro sports play by play announcer in Canada - Brampton As mic boss Meghan McPeak. Baltimore Ravens Jerseys . With the conference finals set and the coaching carousel spinning, they Weave To Achieve on Steve Kerr, the threat of Donald Sterling in 2014-2015 and the NBAs Final Four. With Steve Kerr accepting the job to coach Golden State, who does Phil Jackson hire in New York? Watson: While all roads lead to the man in the mirror, I think the Zen Master will look towards a pupil who understands the triangle offense and one that he can also puppeteer from afar. Not that hes not his own man, but Derek Fisher is a name that sounds like a fit. Its not like Kerr was coming to the Knicks with coaching experience, so clearly thats not an issue. My dark horse pick is Mark Jackson making a return to New York, with something to prove. McPeak: I think Phil is definitely going to go for someone who he coached as a player, or was part of his coaching staff while he was in Los Angeles. Derek Fisher, Tyronn Lue and Kurt Rambis have been some of the names thrown around since Kerr signed with Golden State. The tough job will be getting someone who is willing to deal with the front office meddling that we have seen and with the personality of Knicks owner James Dolan, who said Phil was going to have complete control but then reportedly said he didnt think Kerr was "the right fit". Rambis would be the best fit because he has experience coaching and has coached alongside Jackson in The Triangle offence. If you go away from the triangle offence and just allow the coach to implement their style, I wouldnt be surprised if Lionel Hollins name was in the mix also, because he has experience both as a head coach and assistant. But I have a feeling and wont be surprised if in the end, the Zen Master himself ends up on the sideline again. Strickland: After Kerr spurned the cold of Gotham, the short money and coaching term of James Dolans offer, because yes, it is he and not Phil Jackson who signs the check, the Zen Master is in quite the conundrum. The natural fit, aesthetically at least, would be former NBA Rookie of The Year, native New Yorker and former Knickerbocker himself, the displaced Mark Jackson. But coming out of a meddlesome and distasteful ownership situation in Golden State and into one of the worst in The Association wont bring him home. OKC Thunder ageless backup PG Derek Fisher won five rings with Phil and knows The Triangle, which Jackson wants to run in New York. Fisher would be a decent fit despite lacking coaching experience and what seems to be an overwhelming desire to be more a front office guy than bench boss. Congrats to Kurt Rambis, new patsy... ahem… head coach of the New York Knicks! After Being Ousted From The Playoffs, Whats Next For The L.A. Clippers? Watson: Aside from the Donald Sterling drama, this team needs to retool. Not necessarily blow it all up, but the Clippers have witnessed the growth of DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin this season, in addition to the likes of veterans J.J Reddick, Danny Granger, Hedo Turkoglu and Glenn Davis and it still wasnt enough. "The best point guard in the game" cant get them over the hump and without a conference finals appearance to speak of, its clearly not enough. Doc Rivers has a busy summer in front of him. McPeak: Honestly, its hard to say for certain. The Clippers have been through a lot within a short period of time with the Donald Sterling saga. They should take some time for themselves to think about what they want to do about next season. We already know that Sterling is going to try and drag this out as long as possible. Does that mean that the players and coaching staff opt out and take Commissioner Silver on his word and try to work something out to play elsewhere? Do we see them stay together and try to piggy back off this season, take the momentum into next season for another run? If the league does everything within its legal powers regarding Sterling and its then left to the judicial system, maybe we will see the Clippers make another run at the Larry OBrien trophy. Strickland: Adam Silver and the other 29 owners of the NBA are either dragging their collective feet or bracing for years of litigation while exercising what may be necessary due diligence to get this Donald Sterling thing right. Whatever the case, time may not be in their side or the Clippers. It could get ugly quick. With the Draft and impending free agency coming in the next six-plus weeks, the face of Clipper franchise cant have Donald Sterling stains on it or the results could be cataclysmic not only for LA but the entire NBA. Eastern Conference Finals: Pacers-Heat - Who Wins and Why? Watson: No easier question has been asked since the inception of the Three Man Weave. This is far from the same Pacers team that played in the NBA Playoffs last year. The Pacers cant get it together, even struggling against the Wizards. Miami is in fine playoff form and ready for a fourth consecutive trip to the NBA Finals. Heat in five. McPeak: Pacers. Yes they have been very inconsistent. Yes they plummeted the last eight weeks of the regular season. Yes there was a national manhunt for Roy Hibbert until Game 7 of the Hawks series. But they managed to play through all of that to get what they wanted all along: a repeat matchup with the Heat and another shot at the NBA Finals. Indy has the ability to hit the reset button and play the way many expected them to play all playoffs. They can rise to the occasion and go chest to chest with the two-time defending champs. But to do that, the Pacers need Roy Hibbert to be ROY HIBBERT. He cant shy away. Big Roy needs to dominate the paint the way he did in the first four months of the season. Lance Stephenson, when he isnt making bonehead plays, is a great facilitator. If he can get the ball to the right people in the right places at the right time, Stephenson can also be big for the Pacers. At the end of the day, the Pacers just need to give the effort many expect from them. Strickland: Heat in six. The Pacers are just too emotionally fragile to believe they can beat the Heat four times in a seven game series. On paper and in reviewing last years Eastern Conference Finals, sure, Indy has a shot. Thats it - a shot. Paul Georges uneven playoff performances vs lesser competition in Atlanta and Washington, as well as rumours of infighting, dysfunction and The Invisible Man Act of Roy Hibbert have hurt this team. Miami has championship pedigree, has taken care of their business with relative efficiency... and they still have the biggest x-factor in the game: LeBron Raymone James. Western Conference Finals: Spurs-Thunder - Who Wins and Why? Watson: This series goes seven games, although Im not quite sure for who. The balance and steadiness of the Spurs is a definite advantage, however the energy and drive of the Thunder is too compelling for me. KD, the MVP is playing like one and Westbrook is competing at just as high of a level. If Parker is slowed with this hamstring injury it makes him mortal and puts a little more work on the Coach of the Year. The Thunder have continually found ways to win and I dont think its going to stop in the Western Conference Finals. McPeak: Spurs. As good as the Thunder are, I dont think they can win long term with Westbrook playing with a score-first mentality. When he takes more shots than Durant, OKC struggles to win. When you break down what the Thunder do offensively, they dont actually run anything. When the play completely breaks down and becomes stagnant, the Thunder dont look good. Serge Ibaka suffered a calf injury and is questionable to play. The Thunder need him because he can extend the defence and knock down the long two and occasional three-pointer. Tony Parker is dealing with the hamstring injury so it will be interesting to see how he comes out, however the Spurs have played and won without him this season. San Antonio has things rolling so well in the way they execute on both ends that it will be tough for the Thunder to get four wins. Strickland: The Spurs lost all four games in the regular season to the Thunder... and it means absolutely nothing right now. With news that OKC starting PF and third-leading scorer Serge Ibaka will be out for the remainder of the playoffs, that sweep means even less. MVP Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook will have to summon four of their greatest games of the season, along with help by committee from their entire roster. It probably wont matter as the Spurs are peaking at the right time, in relative good health and solid from Man one to Man 12 on their roster. Spurs in six. Watching the first round of the NBA Playoffs, did you think the #1 and #2 seeds from each conference would be playing in their respective conference finals? Watson: The first round of the 2014 NBA Playoffs was easily the best ever witnessed. While I had little doubt the Heat would be here, the Pacers and Spurs both provided scares. Ultimately, this is how it was set out to be and there have been challenges along the way for all top seeds, which makes this upcoming showdown all the more compelling. Good job Adam Silver! McPeak: Spurs, Thunder and Heat were expected. The Pacers I did not expect to be in the Eastern Conference Final based on how they finished the regular season, and the first two rounds of the playoffs. Indy was just flat out bad and were lucky to get past the Hawks and Wizards, eventually resembling something more like the Pacers we saw start the season so well. Strickland: Indeed. Despite all the hand wringing, wishing and praying in Dallas, Memphis, Atlanta and Washington, the NBA Playoffs are not a live version of Hoosiers or March Madness. The cream more often than not rises to the top over a seven game series and this dictum rings true here with these four teams, the last standing in the quest for the 2013-2014 Lawrence OBrien Trophy. Good luck to them all!

Hayden Hurst Jersey . But the young forward is more than willing to shed a little blood if thats what it takes to make the team this season. "It caught me pretty good, dazed me for that shift, but I didnt want to be off the ice for too long," he said after practice, his lip still bleeding a little despite the plastic stitches holding it together.

Happs seven wins are second on the staff to Mark Buehrles 10. Win-loss record is an antiquated stat, sure, but win total is generally an indication of a pitchers ability to work deep into games, enough to be personally affected by the result.With Yorkshire pursuing a third straight County Championship title, David Lloyd looks at the teams key strengths... Yorkshires success doesnt surprise me one bit.I did the voiceover for the Cricketing Yorkshire show we ran on Sky Sports last summer, and you could see how well run they are - theyre the template of how to run a county. Yorkshire gave Sky Sports exclusive behind-the-scenes access during the 2015 season Keeping GillespieIt was a huge moment for Yorkshire when England decided to give the head coach job to Trevor Bayliss because it meant they got to keep Jason Gillespie as their head coach.While I believe Yorkshire would have found a suitable replacement, Gillespies senior management partnership with Martyn Moxon ensures the club is terrifically well run and his departure would have massively affected the team. Jason Gillespie was rumoured to be the next head coach of England Had Gillespie gone, they would have lost three coaches in a quick space of time, after Paul Farbrace and Richard Dawson left for England and Gloucestershire respectively.Gillespie encourages the players to challenge themselves; he stretches them and makes them take pride in what they do.Investing in youthYorkshire certainly work their academy. They test the youngsters, and dont just put them in for a game before taking them out again. The squad is consistently depleted by international call-ups, but they dont moan about it, they just get on with it.That gives lads like Will Rhodes and Jack Leaning a chance alongside a smattering of high-quality overseas players - they had Aaron Finch and Glenn Maxwell last season and theyll have Kane Williamson this year. Jack Leaning hit three hundreds for Yorkshire in Championship cricket in 2015 I like the fact that the younger players are given responsibility and told its down to you. Mark Andrews Ravens Jersey. Leaning, in particular, produced in 2015, scoring three hundreds and three fifties in first-class cricket.Even someone like 18-year-old Matt Fisher is learning very quickly; he isnt a real fixture in the Championship side yet, but has had to bowl at the death in one-day cricket, in high-pressure situations. Best bowlingYou need a good bowling attack to win the County Championship and Yorkshire have strength in spades in that department.Jack Brooks leads the attack very well, and they have two outstanding senior players in Ryan Sidebottom and Tim Bresnan. Ryan Sidebottom took five wickets, including three in the first over, as Yorkshire secured the County Championship against Middlesex They have come through the system and are Yorkshire through and through, so they are great role models to help guide those younger lads along, and ensure they keep their feet on the ground.Steve Patterson is an unsung player, but equally vital to what they do and they have a quality spinner in Adil Rashid.Theyve also got David Willey coming in, too, but Sidebottom might very well be saying hang on a minute, wait until I have finished! There is real competition for places.Historical hungerThere was the Surrey team of the 1950s that won seven in a row, but Yorkshire have had periods, too, where they have dominated - the Len Hutton era pre-war and then Brian Close and Ray Illingworths time in the 1960s. Len Hutton (L) and Norman Yardley (R) pictured in suits with the white rose of Yorkshire. There is that respect for those that have played previously and a tremendous pride among the players about who they represent.I know for a fact that Yorkshire ensure that their young players coming into the team know the history of the club - theyre now the custodians of the game and, in future years, someone else will come in and take their place.Theyve achieved back-to-back titles now but you can guarantee the club will be saying go out and do it again, lads.
