LONE SEASON But he favoured Oden, a 7-footer who in his lone season at Ohio State was drawing comparisons to Hall of Famer Bill Russell, Nelson’s teammate in Boston. “I think it’d be pretty simple for us,” Nelson said. “We would probably have to go with the bigger guy at this point.” Nelson said he might reconsider if he thought Durant was going to be a superstar, and the forward looked like one as he tore through the Big 12 as a freshman at Texas. But with the Warriors already having Baron Davis, Monta Ellis and Stephen Jackson, Nelson saw other needs. Truth be told, Golden State’s former coach wasn’t sure the Warriors needed Kevin Durant. The Warriors were already small-ball sensations, capable of piling up the points with their daring drives and sizzling shooting. So rather than add another scorer, Don Nelson figured Golden State might be better off getting a dominant man in the middle to shore up the defence in the 2007 NBA draft. Nelson thought the Warriors needed Greg Oden. That was 10 years ago, leading up to the heavily hyped draft in which the Oden-Durant debate raged throughout basketball. And now, as Durant leads the league’s most potent team into the NBA Finals, while Oden is long gone from the NBA spotlight, it’s easy to forget that a lot of people agreed with Nelson. “I think everyone felt that there were two players there that were going to be prominent players, but one thing you can’t count on is injuries,” Warriors executive Jerry West said. “So Greg really never had a chance to have a career, where Kevin’s obviously been more than advertised.” The Warriors were looking like a lottery team in March 2007 when Nelson was asked what he thought they should do if they got the No. 1 pick. He’s one of the innovators of small ball, a coach who seemed more comfortable with a point forward than a power forward, so it wouldn’t have been surprising if he leaned Durant.

1 Alex McLeish insists he has had no contact from Rangers after one bookmaker suspended betting on him being named manager.Scottish league sponsor Ladbrokes closed its book on the Ibrox vacancy after favourite McLeish attracted more bets in the wake of Rangers’ defeat by Dundee on Friday.But McLeish told The Scottish Sun: “I would like it to be known that there has been no contact from anyone at Rangers and it’s important that the speculation is put to rest.”McLeish has been the favourite with several bookmakers even before Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes insisted he was staying at Pittodrie last week amid ongoing speculation linking him with a return to Ibrox.Rangers sacked Pedro Caixinha more than a month ago and have lost their last two games under caretaker boss Graeme Murty.McLeish was interviewed for the job before Caixinha was appointed in March but lost out and later expressed reservations about some issues which came up in talks with the club.The former Scotland manager won seven trophies during four-and-a-half years as Rangers manager from December 2001, including two titles. His most recent managerial job was a short stint at Egyptian side Zamalek early last year.Rangers face a Premiership double header with Aberdeen this week, hosting the Dons on Wednesday before travelling north for a Sunday meeting. Alex McLeish is the favourite to become Scotland’s next manager
Southampton host Everton on Saturday afternoon with both sides attempting to move clear of the relegation zone.Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side are yet to recover from their 9-0 thumping at home to Leicester City albeit they produced an improved performance against Manchester City where the champions won the game with four minutes to go. Southampton have endured a bad start to the season 4 Getty Images – Getty Getty Images – Getty 4 Getty Images – Getty Marco Silva claimed his first win as Everton boss against Southampton. Southampton have lost their last three home league games – they have never lost four in a row at St. Mary’s, last losing four between April and August 1998 at their old stadium, The Dell (five games).Southampton have conceded 19 goals in their first five home Premier League games this season – the most by a top-flight team since the 1930/31 campaign (Blackpool 19, Manchester United 21).Everton are winless in eight Premier League away games (D3 L5), losing each of the last four. However, 10 of their last 13 wins on the road in the competition have been against sides placed 15th or lower at the start of the day.There has been a 90th minute goal in each of Everton’s last three Premier League games (F2 A1), with two of those affecting the result. In total, Everton’s games have seen four goals after 90+ minutes this season (F2 A2), no other sides have seen more.In all competitions, Everton’s Theo Walcott has been involved in six goals in his last four appearances against his former side Southampton, scoring five and creating one. In his whole career he’s only scored more goals against Newcastle and Tottenham (Seven) than he has against Saints (Six).Southampton’s last five Premier League goals have been scored by either James Ward-Prowse (Two) or Danny Ings (Three).Southampton vs Everton: Team newsSouthampton have welcomed Moussa Djenepo and Cedric back following periods on the sidelines with tendon and calf problems respectively.Everton will be without Andre Gomes who suffered a horror ankle injury against Tottenham last time out, but Marco Silva said he could play again this season. Fabian Delph remains out with a hamstring concern. The last time Everton took all three points at St Marys was August 2015 when a Romelu Lukaku brace followed by a Ross Barkley strike completed the 3-0 victory.Southampton vs Everton: The statsSouthampton have won 11 Premier League home games against Everton – only against Newcastle (12) have they won more at the Dell/St Mary’s in the competition.Everton have lost five of their last six Premier League away games against Southampton, winning the other 3-0 in August 2015.11 of Southampton’s 12 Premier League wins against Everton have come in home games (91.7 per cent). Of all teams to have beaten an opponent at least 10 times in the competition, only Newcastle against Southampton (12/13) have won a higher percentage at home (92.3 per cent).Southampton have won just one point in their opening five Premier League home games (W0 D1 L4) – only one team has ever picked up one point or fewer in their first six home games of a Premier League season, Birmingham in 2005/06 on their way to being relegated that campaign. 4 Southampton are currently on a very poor run of form at home. Getty Images – Getty 4 Andre Gomes suffered a dislocation fracture to his right ankle in the draw against Tottenham. Line-upsSouthampton: McCarthy, Bednarek, Stephens, Vestergaard, Cedric, Ward-Prowse, Romeu, Armstrong, Djenepo, Ings, Redmond.Subs: Yoshida, Adams, Boufal, Obafemi, Gunn, Danso, Valery.Everton: Pickford, Sidibe, Mina, Holgate, Digne, Schneiderlin, Davies, Walcott, Sigurdsson, Richarlison, Tosun.Subs: Baines, Keane, Calvert-Lewin, Iwobi, Coleman, Lossl, Gordon.Referee: Paul Tierney After another summer of big investment, Everton find themselves at the wrong end of the table with manager Marco Silva’s job reportedly under threat, having recorded just three wins from 11 games.A win for Southampton would bring them level on points with their opponents although they would need a massive goal swing to lift them out of the bottom three after finding themselves on -17 goal difference. Whereas a win for Everton would lift them away from the bottom three.talkSPORT will have all the action and here’s how you can tune in.Southampton vs Everton: How to listenThe game will get under way at 3:00pm on Saturday November 9 and talkSPORT will bring you all the pre-match build-up from St Mary’s as well as a full live commentary of the game.To tune in, just click here for the live stream or use the radio player below.You can also listen through the talkSPORT App, on DAB Digital Radio or on MW 1053 or 1089.For more information about how to listen LIVE on talkSPORT click here.Southampton vs Everton: Head-to-headRecent meetings between the two sides hold mixed fortune, with Southampton winning two of the last four, Everton picking up one win in the same number of games with the remaining fixture ending in a draw.The most recent clash was on January 19 2019 when a James Ward-Prowse opener followed by a Lucas Digne own goal ensured that the three points stayed in Southampton, with Gylfi Sigurdsson’s equaliser proving to be nothing more than a consolation.Everton took the three points at Goodison Park earlier on in the 2018/19 season when Mark Hughes was still in charge at The Saints. First-half goals from Theo Walcott and Richarlison were enough for Everton to earn Silva his first three points in charge of The Toffees.

Swashbuckling India opener Virender Sehwag was singing songs of Kishore Kumar during the course of his record 149-ball 219-run knock against the West Indies in the fourth ODI in Indore, his team-mate Suresh Raina said.”He was playing very well with no tension. That day, he was singing some Kishore Kumar songs. He was not feeling any kind of tension,” Raina, who cracked 55 in a 140 run-stand for the third wicket with Sehwag, said while addressing the ‘India Today Mind Rocks Youth Summit’ here.Asked whether he too joined him in singing, Raina said “No, I was only on 30 at that time. So, I did not.”Sehwag’s 219 had 25 boundaries and seven sixes as he smashed the West Indian bowlers all over the park to help India post a mammoth 418 for five in 50 overs.In the process, Sehwag overtook Sachin Tendulkar’s 200 not out made against South Africa.Apart Raina, off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin and BCCI’s selection committee chairman Kris Srikkanth was also present at the Youth Summit.Srikkanth said he was confident about Indian team’s good showing in the upcoming Australia tour.”We are very confident. We are doing well. Most importantly, every member of the team is contributing,” Srikkanth said.Off-spinner Ashwin, the latest name to be related to the deadly ‘carrom ball’, said he actually “practised it since his “gully cricket days”.”My friends and father wanted me to work on it and that’s how it worked,” the lanky spinner, who was declared man-of-the-series in the Test rubber against the West Indies for scoring a century and bagging over 20 wickets, said.advertisementReplying to a query whether he was focusing on batting these days, he said he was working on all aspects of the game.
