Giannis Antetokounmpo surprised by Bucks’ sensational season

first_imgThe Bucks were the first team to secure their postseason berth on March 1, and they wrapped up the Central Division title 20 days later.Should they beat the 76ers on Thursday, the Bucks will be guaranteed to go into the playoffs with the best record in the NBA, and that is something Antetokounmpo — who contributed 28 points against the Nets — was not expecting at the start of the campaign.”I thought we were going to be a really good team, but to be honest with you I didn’t think we would have the best record in the NBA,” the MVP contender said following his return from an ankle issue. “We know how important it [the best record] is, but we’re just trying to get better.”Obviously we won the game but we didn’t play the best basketball we could play. Against Philly we’re just going to try and be better and hopefully we can clinch the first spot in the NBA.” Giannis Antetokounmpo admits the Bucks’ sensational season has caught him by surprise.Monday’s 131-121 victory over the Nets at Barclays Center left Milwaukee with a 58-20 record and one win away from securing home-court advantage in the playoffs. WE GO HARDER!! #FearTheDeer pic.twitter.com/6JaaE8By6C— Milwaukee Bucks (@Bucks) April 2, 2019Defeat left the Nets scrambling for a playoff place, although they were fortunate to see all their rivals for the final three places also lose.The Pistons, Heat, Magic and Hornets are all vying for the playoffs in the East, but suffered losses.last_img read more

The film stars Farhan Akhtar in the lead role of a boxer, while Rawal has been cast to play Farhan’s coach.While Farhan has been preparing for his role for many months now (his Instagram posts are proof of that), reports say that Paresh has also joined Farhan on his training session a month ago. A source close to the development told Mumbai Mirror, “The formalities were locked in April and Paresh has been training with Farhan in Mumbai for over a month now.”Talking about the film and the actors, producer of the film, Ritesh Sidhwani said, “Every director has a bucket list of actors and Paresh bhai was on the top of mine. I am absolutely thrilled to have him entering the Toofan family. Both Paresh and Farhan are great actors and both their characters are author-backed and well sketched out. There is a huge offering in store for the audience.”Farhan has been practising hard to prepare for his role in Toofan. He often shares videos from his training sessions. In May this year, the actor was seen training with world kickboxing champion Drew Neal. He took to Instagram to share the video and wrote, “It’s not just about strength but speed as well #ToofanInTheMaking @drewnealpt @samir_jaura @rakeyshommehra @ritesh_sid.”advertisementOn the other hand, Paresh Rawal in his last film Uti: The Surgical Strike, played the role of Govind Bhardwaj, a character based on India’s National Security Advisor Ajit Doval. Talking about Doval, in an interview with a news channel, Paresh Rawal said, “I had met NSA saab two-three times at corridors in Parliament before doing the film. Who doesn’t know him. Every Indian knows him. He is the true hero of ours.”With Toofan, Farhan Akhtar is teaming up with Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra six years after their superhit film Bhaag Milkha Bhaag.

PM says Sport and Creative Industries can Drive Economy

first_imgPrime Minister Portia Simpson Miller says connections between Sport, the Creative and Cultural Industries must be established as these sectors have the potential to be important drivers of economic development. “There are some who may not make the connection between the creative and cultural industries and sport and many still think of those industries merely as the performing and audio visual arts. However, the creative and cultural industries concept is actually a policy development framework and another element of this Government’s emphasis on planned development,” the Prime Minister said. Addressing stakeholders of the national sport associations and federations at a specially-convened meeting to discuss strategic priorities for sport in Jamaica for 2013/14 and the Draft White Paper National Sport Policy, Mrs. Simpson Miller said while the creative and cultural industries are important, they have not been able to bring Jamaica to the heights which sport has achieved. “I am sure this would lift Jamaica’s profile even higher than we are now. I think that we can go further,” the Prime Minister said. Mrs. Simpson Miller emphasized the need to look at the cultural output that assists in the promotion of music, drama, dance, art, and special events management and pull them together under the banner of sports and the cultural and creative industries. “Our sporting heritage has been phenomenal and our cultural output has arrested the attention of the world independent of each other” the Prime Minister added. The Prime Minister, who is also the Minister of Sport, commended Minister with portfolio responsibility, Natalie Neita Headley for the Draft White Paper National Sport Policy noting that the National Sport Policy addresses many of the issues which will determine the success of the national initiative.last_img read more
