Draymond Green has fired back at Paul Pierce?and others for their latest swipes against Kevin Durants decision to join the Golden State Warriors, saying after practice Thursday that its time for the critics to give it a break.In an extended session with reporters in Denver, the Warriors forward made it clear he believes everybody got something to say and want to take everything he says and twist it in coming to Durants defense.Green was reacting to Pierces criticism of Durants decision to leave the Oklahoma City Thunder for the team that eliminated them in the Western Conference finals last season. The Los Angeles Clippers forward said, among other things, When youre that close as a competitor, you dont go and join the team that pushed you out.This built on a groundswell of criticism from current and former players about stars leaving teams to chase a championship elsewhere. The Warriors already were a superteam before one of the leagues most unstoppable scorers decided to leave Oklahoma City for the Bay Area.Pierce appeared to tweak Durant on Wednesday by speaking out negatively about KD joining forces with players he had competed against.Im an old-school guy. Im a competitor. ... When you want to be the best, youve got to beat the best, Pierce, who is embarking on his 19th season, told SiriusXM NBA Radio. Thats always been something thats driven me. Todays day and age, a lot of these guys are friends. Thats like if [Larry] Bird decided to go play with Magic [Johnson] or something. These guys, I think the competition makes the game what it is.And Oklahoma, I felt like, was a contending team. They had Golden State on the ropes. I understand when you have great players on losing teams who are tired of losing, struggling in the playoffs every year. Youre the lone star. Ive been in that position. I could have left Boston years ago, but I stuck it out [and won a championship in 2008].Green, who has previously spoken out in reaction to criticism about creating superteams, continued in Durants defense by making a comparison between NBA athletes and Silicon Valley CEOs.Nobody complains when somebody leaves Apple and goes to Google, Green said, adding, Arent they in competition with each other?As a basketball player, you are the CEO of a business. You are a business, Green said, according to the San Jose Mercury News. Kevin Durant is a big business. He is the CEO of that business. So him going to play basketball for a different team, the CEO decided to leave where he was at and go somewhere else.Arent you competitive in your day job if you work for Apple? Dont you want to outdo Google? Whats the difference on the basketball court? Its your day job. You want to do whats better for you. Saucony Outlet Online . After taking two big hits this week -- losing at home and dropping back-to-back games for the first time all season -- Indiana struck back by playing its most complete game of the year. Buy Sacony Shoes Online . But the quarterback hopes to stay involved in football after officially calling it quits Tuesday. "Id love to look at those opportunities as they arise," Pierce said in an interview from his Winnipeg eatery. http://www.discountsaucony.com/ . MORITZ, Switzerland -- Fog prevented downhill racers from getting their Olympic dress rehearsal. Clearance Saucony Shoes . Any real chance at payback wont come until the playoff. Still, Pittsburgh knows its taut 3-2 win over the Bruins on Wednesday night is a pretty good place to start laying the groundwork. "They are a very good defensive team," Penguins forward Brandon Sutter said. Cheap Saucony Shoes China .Y. -- Injured Buffalo Sabres forward Marcus Foligno did not practice with the team Monday and head coach Ron Rolston said its unlikely hell play in Wednesdays season opener in Detroit. DENVER -- Six months ago, the Colorado Buffaloes were content for Sefo Liufau to take his time recovering from left foot surgery because Texas Tech transfer Davis Webb was insisting hed be wearing the black and gold this fall.Then, Webb spurned the Buffaloes for the Cal Bears.Suddenly, Liufaus determination to make a lightning-quick recovery from a Lisfranc injury was a blessing for the Buffs, who open their season Friday night against Colorado State at soon-to-be-renamed Sports Authority Field at Mile High.Its a small miracle that hes back, maybe a big miracle for as many Lisfrancs you read about and that Ive been around, Colorado coach Mike MacIntyre said. ... Sefo never really went home. He stayed and was here every day. He would pay his own money to fly to Portland to work with his own passing coach to help keep everything going while he was down. Its helped his velocity on the ball and his accuracy. Hes worked tirelessly.Im excited hes back. Hes looked good in practice. Im looking forward to him having the year that hes earned.Liufaus dogged determination to make it back for his senior season has rubbed off on his teammates, too.They see that heightened intensity, MacIntyre said. When they see other people overcome things with the work ethic and the time they have to put into it, they understand it. If you know your friends hopes and dreams, and you can help him reach them, then youre going to do a little more to reach his hopes and dreams. Thats what I see that Sefo has done with this team.Other things to watch in the Rocky Mountain Showdown:WHOS THE QB?: Colorado State coach Mike Bobo isnt saying who will be under center for the Rams: Georgia transfer Faton Bauta, incumbent Nick Stevens or even freshman Colin Hill. Bobo said the advantage is that all three prepare as though theyre the starter. Plus, Colorados coaches cant hone in on just one.I might gain an extra hour on (Buffs defensive coordinator) Jim Leavitt trying to find tape on Faton Bauta or Jim Leavitt watching the high school film to see what kind of player Collin Hill was in high school, Bobo said. Was he a guy who ran or was he drop-back guy? To find out arm strength. Is he an intermediate passer? Can he stretch the ball down field? I would think they are going to watch a little bit more tape. You better have a plan for your guys. Thats the reason.ddddddddddddRIVAL RAMS: Buffaloes linebacker Jimmy Gilbert isnt sure this is such a rivalry: Yes and no. The reason I say no is because we go week-by-week so every week is a rivalry week for us, he said. We try to give each opponent we have respect, and if you treat your opponent with respect youll learn about your opponent.The Rams have a similar philosophy but Bobo doesnt buy the notion that its just another game to the Buffs.I heard they really didnt care about playing us too much last year, Bobo said. They really acted like they cared when they won the game. ... Its one game of 12. But you arent naive enough not to say that its an important game.NOW OR NEVER: MacIntyres future in Boulder probably hinges on Colorado earning its first bowl bid since 2007, and right now hes talking up his teams chances this season.I really like this football team; Ive said it a lot. I get excited when I talk about this football team. This is by far the most talent and the best football weve had in the four years Ive been here, MacIntyre said. Now weve got to go do it on Saturdays, and Friday nights and Thursday nights.YOUNG AND RESTLESS: Bobo says the Buffs have the age advantage: They have a lot of returning players. Theyve got some experience, a lot of senior leadership and they want to make a mark and have a successful season, he said.Said MacIntyre: Ive been hearing about how young CSU is, but they have 16 seniors on the two-deep and we have 16 seniors. We have six freshmen in our two-deep and they have four freshman in their two-deep. Im not buying that they arent a good football team; theyre a really good football team. Their offensive line kicked our butt last year; (Dalyn) Dawkins ran all over us.NEW RECEIVERS: Last years game featured two of the nations best receivers in CUs Nelson Spruce, now with the Los Angeles Rams, and CSUs Rashard Higgins, now with the Cleveland Browns.So, its time for new receivers to come out of their shadows.The Rams are relying on Xavier Williams, Elroy Masters Jr. and Sammie Long IV to step up. The Buffs are looking to Devin Ross, Shay Fields and Bryce Bobo to make up for Spruces departure.---AP college football site: http://collegefootball.ap.org Wholesale Hoodies NFL Shirts Outlet Jerseys NFL Wholesale Cheap NFL Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
