Luxury finishes were key to current owner-occupier demand according to Kokoda.“There is a second market emerging with continuing strong demand for a high-end product. Well-off young professionals and established downsizers in Brisbane are looking to lead a sophisticated lifestyle, close to the city and among exciting lifestyle amenity.”Brisbane’s inner-city saw 71 projects selling off the plan last quarter, three of which were released during the quarter – Ella Apartments, Ferry Rd. and Maasra Apartments.last_img read more

first_imgJameis Winston threw for 385 yards and four touchdowns against the Rams, leading the Buccaneers to a wild 55-40 victory despite Jared Goff’s career-high 517 passing yards.In Detroit, the Chiefs scored a touchdown in the final seconds to remain undefeated and foil the Lions’ upset bid.In another surprising turn of events, the Browns took control of the AFC North for the first time since 2014 as second-year rusher Nick Chubb exploded for three touchdowns in Baltimore against the league’s third-ranked rushing defense.Chubb wasn’t the only running back with a huge day Sunday. Jaguars star Leonard Fournette racked up a career-high 225 yards on 29 carries, as he and quarterback Gardner Minshew rallied the Jags to a win over the Broncos, who have lost eight straight dating to last season.And on a day that saw young quarterbacks Josh Allen (concussion) and Mitch Trubisky (shoulder) lost to injury, rookie QB Daniel Jones completed 23-of-31 passes for 225 yards to become the first Giants quarterback to win his first two career starts since Danny Kanell in Weeks 7-8 of the 1997 season.InjuriesBears quarterback  Mitchell Trubisky left the game against the Vikings in the first quarter after landing awkwardly on his left shoulder and was later ruled out.The Chargers suffered a litany of injuries as defensive end Melvin Ingram hurt his hamstring against the Dolphins. Los Angeles also lost receiver Dontrelle Inman (quad), linebacker  Denzel Perryman (concussion) and tight end  Sean Culkin (ankle).Browns receiver Jarvis Landry went into the medical tent at the end of the third quarter against the Ravens. He was eventually ruled out as the team announced he was being evaluated for a concussion.Bills quarterback Josh Allen entered the concussion protocol after leaving the game against New England early in the fourth quarter. Allen was trying to run for a first down when Patriots defensive back Jonathan Jones knocked him down with a helmet-to-helmet hit.HighlightsDid Patrick Mahomes stare down the referee before taking off down the field?Patrick Mahomes looking back at the ref for a flag in the middle of the play 🤣 #KCvsDET pic.twitter.com/9l7PNGaURC— FOX Sports: NFL (@NFLonFOX) September 29, 2019Browns receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is a regular gunslinger.It was incomplete… but @OBJ has a CANNON for an arm 💪 #CLEvsBAL📺: CBS📱: NFL app // Yahoo Sports appWatch free on mobile: https://t.co/lm0vvtP8ei pic.twitter.com/K9KgcpEEzC— NFL (@NFL) September 29, 2019The Bills got permission from the NFL to extend their halftime for a special ceremony.Mackenzie Park and Jordan Binggeli won the @BuffaloBills ‘ NFL100 Experience of a Lifetime, and were married halftime of today’s game!

Audio captures Michael Jordan saying he wouldn’t play if Isiah Thomas was on the Dream Team

admin no comments

first_img“Rod Thorn called me,” Jordan says in the audio. “I said, ‘Rod, I won’t play if Isiah Thomas is on the team.’ He assured me. He said, ‘You know what? Chuck doesn’t want Isiah. So, Isiah is not going to be part of the team.'”Audio of Michael Jordan admitting that he told Rod Thorn that he wouldn’t play on Dream Team if Isiah Thomas was on the team pic.twitter.com/TXI27fRFhV— Viral Sports (@NotScTop10plays) May 25, 2020MORE: Inside the Dream Team with Michael Jordan (Getty Images) One of the more interesting talking points to emerge from “The Last Dance” documentary was whether Michael Jordan was the reason why Isiah Thomas didn’t make it on the 1992 U.S. men’s Olympic basketball team.Jordan denied it in the documentary, but recent audio seems to suggest otherwise. The audio, pulled from Jack McCallum’s podcast “The Dream Team Tapes,” captures a conversation Jordan had with the veteran reporter. McCallum says the audio came from a conversation he had with Jordan when he was writing his Dream Team book in 2011.  Michael Jordan 1992 Olympics https://images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/7c/b1/michael-jordan-flag-ftr_di21fbocsl5e1s8dmx8cxh0hj.png?t=-526330855&w=500&quality=80Rod Thorn is the former Olympic Committee chairman and played a major role in the selection process for the Dream Team. He was also the Bulls GM when the team drafted Jordan in 1984. Jordan confirmed that he had a phone call with Thorn in “The Last Dance” but didn’t go so far in the documentary as to say he called Thomas out by name.”Before the ’92 Olympics, Rod Thorn calls me and says, ‘We would love for you to be on the Dream Team.’ I say, ‘Who’s all playing?’ He says, ‘What does that mean?’ I say, ‘Who’s all playing?’ He says, ‘Well, the guy you’re talking about or you’re thinking about, he’s not going to be playing,'” Jordan says in the documentary. “I respect Isiah Thomas’ talent. To me, the best point guard of all time is Magic Johnson and right behind him is Isiah Thomas. No matter how much I hate him, I respect his game. Now, it was insinuated that I was asking about him, but I never threw his name in there.”Jordan would add his parting statement, “If you want to attribute it to me, go ahead, and be my guest. But it wasn’t me.” Thorn, in an interview with “Golic and Wingo,” also denied Thomas’ name coming up in the phone call.”There was never anything in my conversation with [Jordan] that had to do with Isiah Thomas, period,” Thorn said. “He said, ‘I’ll do it.’ … Isiah’s name never came up during that conversation. He never backtracked and said he didn’t want to do it from that time on, to those of us in the NBA office.”As for Thomas, he simply added in the documentary, “I don’t know what went into that process. I met the criteria to be selected, but I wasn’t.”last_img read more
