The memorabilia fraud case against Eli Manning has been settled.
A spokesman for the defendants on Monday said a settlement had been reached to resolve the claims after three sports memorabilia collectors accused the Giants quarterback of providing fake “game-worn” equipment.
While details were not disclosed, the attorneys for both sides issued a joint statement on the matter (per ESPN):
Some of that resiliency came from the stellar offensive play of Alex Ovechkin and Kuznetsov. Some of it came from a timely save or three by Braden Holtby, at least earlier in the playoffs. But much of it came from a supporting cast of players from the AHL and outside the organization — including relative veterans Devante Smith-Pelly (25 years old) and Alex Chiasson (27) — who didn’t understand that, as tradition holds with the Capitals, they were supposed to meekly leave the postseason when their opponents deemed it was time.
They hadn’t taken part in those playoff runs that stumbled in the semifinals. They didn’t know any better. “Some of these young guys, they think this is how it is every year,” said Trotz. “But that’s where you want to get to as an organization.”
It can even work with Clarkson! After Horford sank a jumper early in the second quarter, LeBron rushed up the left sideline, took a screen from Clarkson with about 20 on the shot clock, earned a switch, posted up Rozier, drew help from Horford, and nearly found Nance for another alley-oop:
Brown busted that by abandoning Korver in the corner, but coaxing that crisis rotation is a win for the Cavs. LeBron, Nance, and Thompson were all more attuned to short-range lob possibilities.
Forcing point guards onto LeBron is always good. It draws every eyeball. Remember when Thompson sprung Smith for an open triple with a nasty flare screen? It happened because literally every player on the court — including Smith’s man — stared at James lording over Rozier:
The NFL won’t stray from its regular rotation for the next round of Super Bowl host cities.
The league announced Wednesday it has awarded the 2023 Super Bowl to Arizona and the 2024 game to New Orleans.
