INDEPENDENCE, Ohio -- Guard Mo Williams has informed the Cavaliers hes officially retired. Malik Hooker Jersey .Williams has waffled on whether he would return all summer and the 33-year-old told the Cavs about his plans Monday shortly before the NBA champions held their media day.Despite Williams retirement and losing Matthew Dellavedova as a free agent, Cavs general manager David Griffin said the team is comfortable at point guard and the team would not immediately look to add another. Kyrie Irving will start with rookie Kay Felder as his backup.Williams played two stints with Cleveland. He was not in coach Tyronn Lues rotation for much of last season, but wound up playing in the NBA Finals when Dellavedova struggled.Also, Griffin said the team has made an incredibly competitive and aggressive offer in re-signing free agent J.R. Smith.Smith had a vital role in Clevelands championship run last season. Tarell Basham Colts Jersey . Down by seven with 90 seconds left in regulation, thats where they looked comfortable. Malik Hooker Youth Jersey . -- Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson asked his players a simple question during Fridays morning shootaround: How many of them had ever been on a team 14 games over . http://www.nflcoltsgearsshop.com/Quincy-Wilson.html?cat=911 .J. -- Seven games into a disappointing season, New York Giants defensive catalyst Jason Pierre-Paul is getting the feeling hes back. (STATS) -- Though idle last weekend, Grambling State managed to find its way into the STATS FCS Top 25 for the first time this season Monday.However, its possible the Tigers wont be ranked the next time they take the field. And it wouldnt be any fault of their own.In the midst of a second consecutive bye week within the Southwestern Athletic Conference, No. 25 Grambling (4-1, 3-0) is once again practicing to fine-tune its own game while not preparing for any opponent.Something I have never been a part of, Tigers coach Broderick Fobbs said. Its something you have to play the hand that youve been dealt.Hopefully this never happens again.It actually did happen to the Tigers in November 2013, the year before Fobbs took the job.Grambling, which last played Oct. 1 against Prairie View A&M and wont play again until visiting Mississippi Valley State on Oct. 22, isnt the only SWAC school affected by this unique scheduling quirk. Rival Southern faces Jackson State on Saturday after being idle since its 59-31 win at Alabama A&M on Sept. 24.Though Fobbs seems none too pleased with Gramblings situation, hes proud of the way his squad has handled things during this unique and somewhat frustrating lull in the schedule.Our kids are excited, but they are mature about the situation, he said. They are handling it the right way. They understand the focus of practicing a certain way.Last week gave the Tigers a chance to rest and get some banged-up players back to health. Which was more than enough time, according to Fobbs.I dont thhink you need three, four weeks to rest, he said. Zach Banner Jersey. . These kids are young, their bodies heal fast. I dont think three weeks is the way to go. One week is plenty enough to get quality rest.This week, the Tigers focus is on playing smart football, cleaning up any issues and concentrating on bettering the program as a whole.Being sharp, transition the right way, Fobbs said. Playing without making mistakes.Grambling has looked sharp when actually on the field in 2016. The Tigers rank among the national leaders in all of college football averaging 41.4 points and have won three in a row since falling 31-21 at Arizona on Sept. 10 in a game they led 21-3 at halftime.Ole Miss transfer DeVante Kincade has thrown for 1,1434 yards, 11 touchdowns and three interceptions and run for a team-leading 303 with five TDs.Aside from the loss at Arizona, the Tigers defense has not yielded more than 18 points in any other contest.That all adds up to a team worthy of its first STATS FCS Top 25 ranking since tabbed 24th in last seasons final poll.Like most coaches, at least publicly, Fobbs wont read too much into the rankings but remains a steadfast champion for the collective talent found in the SWAC.I really put no stock into polls, he said. But I will say this ... as a group, this conference as a whole, it doesnt matter who is ranked. I think this conference doesnt get the respect it deserves. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
