NBAOAKLAND, Calif. -- Steve Kerr, the reigning NBA Coach of the Year with the Golden State Warriors, acknowledged he tried marijuana twice in the past 18 months while dealing with debilitating back pain.Kerr told Comcast SportsNet Bay Areas Warriors Insider Podcast with Monte Poole on Friday that he used medicinal marijuana but it didnt help -- but painkillers have been worse.I have no idea if I would, maybe I would have failed a drug test, I dont even know if Im subject to a drug test or any laws from the NBA, Kerr said. I tried it and it didnt help at all.The 51-year-old Kerr missed the first 43 games last season and the teams record 24-0 start while on a leave of absence following complications from two back surgeries. A spinal fluid leak led to terrible headaches, nausea and neck pain among other symptoms that left him feeling frustrated and down.Kerr noted, athletes everywhere are prescribed Vicodin like its Vitamin C, like its no big deal. He said he hopes sports leagues are able to look past the perception and that its only a matter of time to change rules.He also was just selected the Western Conference Coach of the Month for November.BASEBALLNEW YORK -- Tyson Ross, an All-Star pitcher for San Diego two years ago, was among 35 players who became free agents when their teams declined to offer 2017 contracts on Friday.Washington outfielder Ben Revere and Philadelphia outfielder Cody Asche also were among those cut loose along with Arizona catcher Welington Castillo and pitcher Rubby De La Rosa; Baltimore pitcher Vance Worley; and Los Angeles Dodgers reliever Louis Coleman.Milwaukee first baseman Chris Carter and Pittsburgh pitcher Jeff Locke also were let loose; their teams had designated them for assignment earlier this week.Teams cut players at the tender deadline to avoid committing to salary arbitration, in which about one-sixth of next seasons salary is guaranteed.ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Los Angeles Angels slugger Albert Pujols had surgery on his right foot Friday, possibly sidelining him past opening day.Angels general manager Billy Eppler said Pujols had the procedure Friday in North Carolina to release his plantar fascia, the ligament connecting the heel to the toes. The three-time NL MVP was bothered by plantar fasciitis repeatedly during the season, but played through the pain in arguably the strongest year of his half-decade with the Angels.Eppler said the surgery typically prevents players from participating in baseball activities for three months, along with another month before theyre ready to resume playing in games. Opening day for Los Angeles is April 3, and the Angels hope Pujols can be ready.Pujols, who turns 37 next month, batted .268 last year with 31 homers and 119 RBI, the fourth-most in the majors -- although his .780 OPS was among the worst of his career. He largely served as a designated hitter instead of playing first base due to problems with his hamstrings and feet.OLYMPICSThe Los Angeles bid committee for the 2024 Olympics released details of a nearly unheard-of budget plan Friday, insisting $5.3 billion will be enough to cover both operational and infrastructure costs for an Olympics that wont need any new, permanent stadiums.The cost would be less than half that of the recently completed Rio Games and about a quarter of Tokyos ballooning budget for the 2020 Olympics.It also defies convention in the Olympic bidding business, in which cities traditionally deal with two figures -- one for operational costs and one for non-Olympics costs that cover capital and infrastructure.Bid officials say they can do this because more than 30 venues already exist in the L.A. area and those that dont will be built as temporary structures. The bid folded in $1.2 billion for infrastructure, which would primarily be used for temporary venues and to bring existing ones up to Olympic standards.Los Angeles is going against Paris and Budapest, Hungary. Preliminary figures for Paris called for an infrastructure budget of $4.5 billion and operational costs of $4.8 billion, with 95 percent of the citys proposed venues either temporary or already in existence. The next deadline for cities to submit candidate files, which will include updated budget figures, is Feb. 3. The games will be awarded next September.NASCARLAS VEGAS -- Jimmie Johnson was celebrated Friday night for winning his record-tying seventh NASCAR Sprint Cup title, while Tony Stewart was seen off into retirement and Dale Earnhardt Jr. told his adoring fans hell be ready to race in 2017.Johnsons dramatic victory in the finale last month at Homestead moved him into a tie with Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt for the most series championships. Johnson was to make his speech last at the season-ending banquet at the Wynn Las Vegas.NASCAR honored Stewart, who retired after an 18-year career that included three series championships, with a video poking fun at his coarse language, weight and temper and with a surprise appearance by Pearl Jams Eddie Vedder.Earnhardt Jr. was voted most popular driver by fans for a record 14th time despite missing the second half of the season following at least the fifth concussion of his career. While not announcing the date or track, he intends to drive a test session this month, the final hurdle before hell be cleared to return. Jonas Valanciunas Jersey . -- Catcher Brett Hayes has agreed to a $630,000, one-year contract with the Kansas City Royals, avoiding salary arbitration. Kyle Lowry Jersey .C. -- Todd Fiddler scored a hat trick, including the overtime goal, as the Prince George Cougars survived an 8-7 win against the Kamloops Blazers in Western Hockey League play Sunday. http://www.shopraptors.com/Cheap-Vince-Carter-Raptors-Jersey/ .2 billion agreement with Rogers Communications for the leagues broadcast and multimedia rights. KJ McDaniels Jersey .com) - The Montreal Canadiens will try to halt their longest losing streak of the season when they host the struggling New York Islanders in tonights clash at the Bell Centre. C.J. Miles Jersey . It might not have mattered. While the Dodgers are preparing for the playoffs, the Padres showed their future has promise behind two rookies. ATLANTA -- Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson wants to see the ACC continue its two-year run of dominance in state rivalry games against teams from the SEC.Atlantic Coast Conference teams are 7-1 against Southeastern Conference teams from the same state the last two years. That includes a 4-0 sweep in 2014 of the state rivalries that will be renewed on Saturday: Clemson-South Carolina, Louisville-Kentucky, Georgia Tech-Georgia and Florida State-Florida.Best of luck to all those guys competing against the SEC, Watson said this week. Lets pull it out and take over.The ACC already has a 3-2 edge in games against SEC teams this season. The conferences wins over the SEC, which carries more national respect, are no surprise to Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson.I think it means our league is pretty good, Johnson said Tuesday. I mean, were probably the only team thats an underdog this year.Johnson correctly pointed out that No. 4 Clemson and No. 11 Louisville are three-touchdown favorites over their respective state rivals. Florida State is favored by a touchdown.I think its just an example that the ACC doesnt have to take a backseat in football to anybody, Johnson said.Georgia is a four-point favorite. The Bulldogs 13-7 win at Georgia Tech last season prevented a second straight sweep by ACC teams.Georgia Tech already has a lopsided 38-7 win over the SECs Vanderbilt this season.Louisville coach Bobby Petrino said he had to adjust to having Kentucky fans in his neighborhood.When I first got here I thought, `Man this is really weird, and it upset me and Id get mad, Petrino said. You know, tell my kids to go egg their windows. ... Actually, I didnt tell them that, but I wanted to, but then you realize well this is the biggest city in the state of Kentucky and youve got both Louisville fans and Kentucky fans here.Heres a look at this weeks intrastate rivalry games involving ACC teams:---FLORIDA-FLORIDA STATESeries began: 1958.Series record: Florida leads 34-24-2Trophy: Florida Cup.Why its a big deal: Once dominated by the Gators, it was especially prominent in the 1990s between Spurriers Florida teams and Bobby Bowdens Seminoles. The teams were both routinely ranked in the Top 10 during the 1990s. Both teams also have other big rivals, like Florida-Georgia and Florida State-Miami.Best game: The two teams tied 31-31 in the regular season after Florida blew a 31-3 lead in the fourth quarter. Florida State won a Sugar Bowl rematch 23-17.This year: Florida has already clinched an SEC championship game berth against No. 1 Alabama, with an outside shot at making the playoffs. The Seminoles, who made the playoffs two years ago, are 8-3 and out of the division race.---GEORGIA-GEORGIA TECHSeries began: 1893Series record: Georgia leads 65-38-5 according to its records and 65-40-5 according to Georgia Tech, including two wins during World War II which Georgia doesnt count.Trophy: Governors CupWhy its a big deal: Each team is aiming for a strong regular-season finish to cast a positive shine on mostly disappointing records. Georgia is looking to give first-year coach Kirby Smart a win in his debut in the series, which Georgia Tech is looking for its second win in three years.Best game: Georgia Tech 51, Georgia 48, OT, 1999. The teams combined for 1,102 total yards in the highest scoring game in the series. Georgia blocked the Yellow Jackets first field goal attempt in overtime, but Georgia Tech recovered to set up Luke Mangets game-winning 38-yarder.This year: There are many similarities. Each team is 7-4 overall and 4-4 in its conference. Georgia has won three straight, including a 13-7 upset of then-No. 8 Auburn. Georgia Tech has won four of five, including a 30-20 upset of then-No. 18 Virginia Tech. Each team features strong running games. A major difference is the Yellow Jackets are led by senior quarterback Justin Thomas, while freshman Jacob Eason starts for the Bulldogs.-----KENTUCKY-LOUISVILLESeries began: 1912 (resumed in 1994 after a 70-year hiatus).Series record: Tied, 14-14.Trophy: Governors Cup.Why its a big deal: The schools longtime basketball rivalry is obviously bigger but getting a head start on Bluegrass bragging rights never hurts. Kentucky dominated Louisville 220-0 in the series first six games before the Cardinals responded to wwin 14 of 22 since then with five straight wins.dddddddddddd The programs opposite fortunes in recent years have helped fuel its intensity resulting in close games and short tempers, boiling over two years ago in Louisville with a pregame brawl at midfield.Best game: Louisville 44, Kentucky 40, 2014. That contest was the series first as the season finale and the Cardinals trailed 13-0 before reserve quarterback Kyle Bolin entered to throw for 381 yards and three touchdowns in a shootout that denied the Wildcats bowl eligibility. (Note: Louisville did it again last fall with a 38-24 win after trailing 21-0.)This year: Having ended a six-year postseason drought, Kentucky aims to enhance its profile for one of several bowls. No. 11 Louisville had its College Football Playoff hopes dashed with last weeks loss at Houston but remains in the mix for several bowls, including the Orange.---N.C. STATE-NORTH CAROLINASeries began: 1894.Series record: North Carolina leads 66-33-6.Trophy: None.Why its a big deal: College ties run especially deep in the North Carolina Triangle, home to three Atlantic Coast Conference schools, and North Carolina and N.C. State have had the two most successful football programs -- and most energized fan bases for the sport -- over the past half century.Best game: North Carolina 43, North Carolina State 35, 2012. Giovani Bernard returned a punt 74 yards for the go-ahead touchdown with 13 seconds remaining to help the Tar Heels snap a five-game losing streak in the series.This year: North Carolina will play in the ACC championship game with a win and a loss by Virginia Tech to Virginia. N.C. State needs a win to become bowl eligible for the third straight year.---SOUTH CAROLINA-CLEMSONSeries began: 1896.Series record: Clemson leads 67-42-4.Trophy: Palmetto Bowl TrophyWhy its a big deal: There are no pro sports teams in the Palmetto State, so the football game between the states two major universities is the marquee sporting event -- something fans salivate over 365 days a year. It once, back in 2004, sparked a brawl that cost both teams bowl games as punishment.Best game: Clemson 16, South Carolina 14, 2000. With Lou Holtz leading a turnaround season for the Gamecocks, South Carolina held a 14-13 lead in the final minute. Clemson quarterback Woody Dantzler heaved a 50-yard pass to Rod Gardner that set up Aaron Hunts last-second field goal. South Carolina fans say Gardner pushed off, Holtz event slamming officials by saying there were 29 people on the field deciding the game. Replays seemed to show Gardner gaining separation on Andre Goodman with a solid stiff arm.This year: Clemson needs to win to keep its College Football Playoff hopes alive. Spoiling that dream for Clemson would perhaps make this bowl eligible South Carolinas greatest victory.---VIRGINIA-VIRGINIA TECHSeries began: 1895.Series record: Virginia Tech leads 55-37-5.Trophy: Commonwealth Cup.Why its a big deal: The rivalry has always been big, but became bigger when Virginia Tech joined Virginia in the Atlantic Coast Conference in 2004. Some administrators at Virginia helped make that happen, which still rankles Cavaliers fans since the Hokies promptly dominated the league for the next several years, winning four ACC championships.Best game: Depends on who you ask. No. 20 Virginia Tech erased a 15-point second-half deficit and rallied for a 36-29 victory at No. 13 Virginia in 1995, getting the go-ahead points on Jim Druckenmillers pass to Jermaine Thomas with 47 seconds left. No. 16 Virginia rallied from a 29-7 halftime deficit for a 36-32 victory at Virginia Tech three years later.This year: Virginia Tech, with a victory, earns a place in the ACC championship for the first time since 2009. The Hokies can actually clinch before the game if North Carolina loses against North Carolina State on Friday night. The Cavaliers, meanwhile, are looking to end a 12-game losing streak in the series, the longest for either team.---AP Sports Writers Gary Graves, Pete Iacobelli, Hank Kurz Jr., Joedy McCreary and John Zenor contributed to this report.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Online Wholesale Jerseys From China Cheap Jerseys 2020 Cheap Jerseys Online NFL Jerseys Cheap ' ' '
