So that’s a pretty good resume.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAnthony turned Denver into a contender even though the Nuggets couldn’t sniff the Lakers and Spurs of the early 2000s. In his five full seasons in New York, the Knicks haven’t advanced past the Eastern Conference semifinals and have struggled in losing seasons each of the past three years.After Sunday’s gold medal game, Anthony got emotional discussing the win over Serbia, even though he’s been in the same spot twice before.“I think it meant a lot to him because he’s had a couple bad years obviously in New York,” Boeheim said. “The reason I wanted him to go was to have a good basketball experience for himself and be the leader of this team.”This year, Team USA didn’t have LeBron James, Steph Curry, Chris Paul or Dwyane Wade. Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, Kyrie Irving and DeAndre Jordan were the main players alongside Anthony instead.And even through there were some bumps in the road in the form of single-digit wins, the seasoned vet added to a resume that some view as incomplete, but one Boeheim considers just fine.“When we were struggling there, he was a really good voice in the locker room, keep everybody together,” Boeheim said. “Carmelo was the unquestioned leader in this team.” Commentscenter_img Carmelo Anthony is unlikely to win an NBA title with the New York Knicks. Jim Boeheim acknowledged that much. And in today’s culture of defining legacies, a championship seems to be the required element to validate a player’s career.Anthony has won three Olympic gold medals, though, which is more than any player in Team USA history. He also led SU to its only national championship in 2003. When asked about how Anthony will be remembered when all is said and done, Boeheim chose to look at his entire basketball resume and the effect he’s had on his NBA teams rather than what will likely be a professional career without a title.“He’s never been on a team that even had a remote chance of winning an NBA title,” Boeheim said Tuesday afternoon in the Melo Center. “As a player all you can do is try and make your team better and every team he’s been on, he’s made a lot better.last_img read more

Answers needed from Lowenfield about RLE

first_imgDear Editor,If one is to study the work plan from the 2011 elections, it reveals an important point. From July 18, 2011, when the Preliminary List of Electors (PLE) was extracted from the National Register of Registrants (NRR) to put the Claims and Objections (C&O) process into gear, until that process was completed on September 4, 2011, only 48 days (just over 6 weeks) were consumed. At the end of the C&O process, Guyana had a Revised List of Electors (RLE). The political parties were able to use this RLEto further help GECOM HQ USA make any last minute valid and verified modifications before they printed the Official List of Electors (actual voters’ list). Any person with an average mathematics competence will tell you that there was still 42 days for GECOM to exhaust the full 90 days or 3 months as prescribed by Article 106 of the Constitution.So why is there a school of thought coming out of GECOM that they can only produce a list by Christmas? It is a bogus position, full stop.Mr Keith Lowenfield, the Chief Elections Officer who is now in the middle of a major land controversy involving the former PNC-led Government, must be called to account. Is he deliberately not preparing for elections as some sort of payback for past favours granted by the PNC? We need answers from Mr Lowenfield as to why GECOM could not and did not update its RLE as an outcome of a C&O process from January 2019 to May 2019.The details from 2011 are below.Regards,Sasenarine SinghMarylandlast_img read more
