It often happens without you even noticing it. Itll be the middle of the third quarter, the game is progressing without much happening of note, and youll glance at the box score and see it.Kevin Durant, 20 points.Durant is arguably the worlds best scorer, and that has been increasingly clear over the past five years or so. He owns four of the past seven scoring titles.What makes him so special is his consistency. Last season, he scored at least 20 in every game he played, except for one -- at the Washington Wizards, in which he pulled a hamstring late in the second quarter and played only a half. He finished the regular season sitting on a streak of 66 straight games with at least 20 points. You could pencil him in for at least 20 before tipoff.As Durant transitions to the Bay Area to play with Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green, hell face an adjustment period of learning his new teammates and how his scoring talents fit in the free-flowing Golden State Warriors system. He might get fewer shots. He might see the ball less in crunch time. But even with the changes, Durant is going to do what he does -- hes still going to score, and hes going to make 25 a night look as easy as it possibly can.When Team USA plays China on Tuesday, Durant will play his first game at Oracle Arena since leaving the Oklahoma City Thunder for the Warriors. The fans in Oakland will get their initial glimpse of the Kevin Durant experience. Here are six other things that are part of it:Hes a microwave. Everyone has seen the Rucker Park video, right? Its almost scientific at this point: Durant needs two shots to go in, consecutively, to be hot. It wasnt unusual for him to shoot 2-of-9 in a first half, then drip to 2-of-11 in the third quarter. But either with a pull-up 3, or a pretty floating jumper off a pindown screen, once Durant gets a couple to drop, hes recalibrated. A 2-of-9 start will be a 10-of-19 finish.That even works in the clutch. Like last December in a ho-hum game against the Sacramento Kings:?Durant had a triple-double -- 20 points, 10 rebounds and ... 10 turnovers. He struggled shooting, looking disinterested and disjointed. He played terribly, by his own admission. Thats the word he used to describe his night.But in the final 90 seconds, he hit two clutch jumpers, including the go-ahead game winner with 23 seconds left. Thats Durant. Even when it looks as if hes off and its just one of those nights, hell show up and pop a few jumpers and win you a game.Oh, and you can bank on this: If he hits consecutive 3s, a third one is going up, no matter what.He cares about his numbers. He often likes to pretend he doesnt. But he does. Durant obsessively tracked his shooting numbers in games, and he would routinely check with Thunder scorekeepers to be sure he had it right. Hed sometimes go to them and try to talk them into counting a bad shot attempt that air-balled as a turnover. Hed grab printed-out box scores between quarters and scour them.Not unrelated: Durant avoids taking long-distance, end-of-quarter shots. Warriors fans love watching Curry unleash those soaring 60-footers that inexplicably seem to go in, but dont expect to see that much from Durant. Hes a serial buzzer clutcher. He has even admitted to it.It depends on what Im shooting from the field, he said in 2013. First quarter if Im 4-for-4, I let it go. Third quarter if Im like 10-for-16, or 10-for-17, I might let it go. But if Im like 8-for-19, Im going to go ahead and dribble one more second and let that buzzer go off and then throw it up there. So it depends on how the games going.Curry has kind of made it his thing to let it fly, so maybe Durant will happily find him in those situations. Or maybe hell start caring less about his numbers.Hes a better defender than he gets credit for. Using his length and size, the 6-foot-9 Durant grabbed a lot of defensive attention in the postseason, when the Thunder would play small with him at the power forward spot. But Durant has long been playing stellar defense, especially in one-on-one situations. He knows how to use his length, taking away jumpers and forcing drives from smaller players.Hes not necessarily a big shot-blocker or steals guy, but its difficult to score on him in isolation situations. He can guard 1 through 5 and relishes big matchups against other top-scoring small forwards.With the Warriors, Durant will likely have less of a responsibility to score, and he can focus on creating more havoc on the defensive end. And maybe start building that reputation.Put him on the block and its near-automatic points. Durant isnt known for being a great back-to-the-basket post-up guy, but get him the ball with single coverage on either block, and the chance of him scoring is nearly guaranteed.Durant especially likes turning over on his outside shoulder toward the baseline and fading a bit on it. If the defense doesnt bring help, Durant gets that off against anyone.?He has a temper. Durant doesnt mind picking up a technical foul. Hell snap at officials after perceived missed calls. He had eight techs last season, which was way down from his 16 in 2013-14. His go-to complain move is to throw both arms in the air with his palms open toward the sky.He can pass. Durant regularly unleashes the kind of pass that makes you go oooooh and bring a hand halfway up to your mouth. He loves throwing backdoor bounce passes but knows how to fire the fancy no-lookers, too. His playmaking has been one of his biggest improvements the past few years, going from a big guy with a soft handle and iffy passing instincts to having the ball on a string with a high-level drive and dish ability.Durant does get a little weak with the ball, though. In the postseason, he called himself out for too many soft, one-handed passes, and when he gets trapped or doubled, hell often react poorly and throw a lazy pass. The Warriors hit him with traps often, and Durant saw his turnovers jump in the Western Conference finals. Guess he wont have to worry about that as much now. Triple S Bianche . The Olympic champion curler and TSN curling analyst immediately went online to look at the Halls long list of honoured members. Thats when the enormity of the honour sunk in. Nike Air Max 98 Shop . The team says the Spain international has a muscle pull in his right leg. Barcelona hosts third-division side Cartagena in the return leg of their round-of-32 tie after winning their first meeting 4-1. http://www.balenciagascarpe.it/balenciaga-triple-s.html . Vancouver Whitecaps and Toronto FC failed to make the postseason while Montreal Impact fell at the first hurdle losing heavily to Houston Dynamo in the Eastern Conference Knockout Round. Air Max 97 CR7 . All of the scoring came in the final 20:04. Lucic scored on a power play at 15:46 of the third period, when he tipped a shot over Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen for a 3-1 lead. Nike Air Max Fury . In Europe, top teams seem to be largely happy with their squads after spending nearly $1 billion in the off-season. And although English league clubs are unlikely to splash cash in January, Arsenal and Chelsea could be tempted to strengthen their squads with new strikers. Miguel Cotto the promoter has been busy with his promotional company signing young Puerto Rican boxing talent and making a foray into concert promoting.Cotto the future Hall of Fame boxer has been a lot less busy.At 35, Cotto is in the twilight of his career, during which he came out of the 2000 Olympics to become one of the sports biggest and most exciting stars as well as the first Puerto Rican fighter to win world titles in four weight divisions (junior welterweight, welterweight, junior middleweight and middleweight).In recent years, however, Cotto (40-5, 33 KOs) has picked his spots to fight. He boxed only once in 2013 (following a 10-month layoff), once in 2014 (when he knocked out Sergio Martinez to win the middleweight crown) and twice in 2015, returning from a year layoff to stop Daniel Geale in a middleweight title defense and then losing a decision and the title to Canelo Alvarez in their huge fight in November 2015.Since then there has been much discussion about Cottos next move. He and promoter Roc Nation Sports talked at length about a fight in the second half of this year. There were negotiations with Mexican star Juan Manuel Marquez, also a four-division titleholder, for a major pay-per-view fight, but Marquez is a smaller man and they could not agree on a catch weight acceptable to both fighters.Then there were conversations with HBO about a fight with former junior welterweight titlist and welterweight contender Lamont Peterson on Dec. 3 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. But nothing was ever finalized with one issue being that the date was too close to the Nov. 19 fight Roc Nation Sports is co-promoting between its other star fighter, Andre Ward, and unified light heavyweight titleholder Sergey Kovalev.So for the first time since his 2001 pro debut, Cotto will go through a calendar year without a ring appearance.We have had several conversations with Roc Nation about where Miguel is at and what he wants to do. Everything is good but with different circumstances he decided not to fight in 2016, Bryan Perez, a Miguel Cotto Promotions executive and Cottos close friend, told ESPN. We had different conversations about fighting in December but we decided not to fight and do it in the first part of 2017, between February or March.According to Perez, Cottos next fight will be the last one of the three-fight deal he signed with Roc Nation Sports in March 2015. While many have speculated that would likely be the final fight of Cottos career -- he has said he is looking ahead to life after the boxing ring -- Perez said it probably wont be.The next fight is the last fight on the agreement we signed in 2015 but Miguel feels healthy and good and wants to continue fighting, Perez said. He has the last word and will decide what to do and what his plan will be but he says he wants to continue to fight and to explore facing the best names out there and getting the best guarantee (in terms of money). He will fight twice in 2017.Although Cotto won the middleweight titlle, he fought below the division limit of 160 in all three of his title fights (155 and 153 twice).dddddddddddd The mid-to-low 150s is where he intends to fight next.He will be comfortable fighting below 160, but whatever opportunities pop up and whatever fight is the best guarantee and benefits his career he will consider, Perez said. We will wait to see.Obviously, he is not going to go to welterweight.Perez said Peterson (34-3-1, 17 KOs), 32, of Washington, D.C., remains a possible opponent. Peterson has not fought since last October.Lamont Peterson is a former world champion, a great fighter and it would be a great fight but not a pay-per-view fight. But I think its a fight that could get done, Perez said, adding that even though Peterson is aligned with adviser Al Haymon it would not prevent a deal being made with Roc Nation Sports, which is owned by music star Jay Z, a longtime rival of Haymons.A far more intriguing bout would be against former welterweight and junior welterweight titleholder Timothy Bradley Jr. (33-2-1, 13 KOs), 33, of Palm Springs, California. Bradley has voiced interest in moving up to face Cotto.Thats one of the fights Tim would like before he is done with his career, Monica Bradley, his wife and manager told ESPN in August when he re-signed with promoter Top Rank.Said Perez: Bradley is a huge fight, a great fight to make. Its a great fight for the fans, a good style fight. Miguel is always willing to fight the best and if Bradley is there and available and we can agree on terms, we are more than happy to put them in the ring.That fight would entail Cottos camp co-promoting with Top Rank, which promoted Cotto for most of his career until he left to sign with Roc Nation Sports after saying he would never leave the company. It was a move that deeply disappointed Top Rank president Todd duBoef, who recruited Cotto out of the Olympics and grew very close to him through the years.We ended our business relationship with Top Rank but if theres a fight we can work on together we will work together, no problem, Perez said. We had a great relationship with Top Rank and we like and respect Bob [Arum] and Todd. I think Bradley would be a huge fight and a great fight.When asked for his view of the possible fight, duBoef was not overly enthusiastic and not anxious to go down that road. But he said he would acquiesce to his fighter.If its a fight that Tim Bradley and Monica want, I would discuss it, duBoef said.Regardless of when Cotto returns, at what weight and against which opponent, he will be back soon training with Hall of Famer Freddie Roach and looking for the biggest fight that can be made.This is the first time he had a layoff like this, Perez said. But at this point in his career its good for him. Hes been moving around in the gym to maintain his condition but its good for him to get the rest. But he is ready to fight again.

alex smith came in and threw for a career best 26. Vic or as Charley Casserly prefers to call him, Victor Beasley had a breakout game in a huge win over the defending Super Bowl champion Broncos. He was also the second fastest to the quarterback in Week 5, taking just 2.2 seconds to get to Paxton Lynch on one of his 3.5 sacks..He is a very good runner after the catch. Ochocinco is really the only receiving wholesale mlb jerseys threat Cincinnati has, so he is constantly fighting double teams. Still, wholesale jerseys 2018 he had 72 catches in 2009 for 1,047 yards wholesale jersey and nine TDs. It's unlikely, however, they could have imagined how long they'd be staying. But with the relaunch of Mystery Science Theater 3000 just over the horizon Netflix will debut 14 new episodes on April 14th Ray, Vaughn, and Yount have become a part of the mlb wholesale jerseys 2018 history of the show that shaped them. They're also largely responsible for proving MST3K can make a funny, vital return, winning new fans and pleasing the old ones, nearly two decades after it aired its last episode.
Great product, especially for the price. I wish the hinges and clasps were black though, so they didn't stand out so much from the frame. I'll buy again if I need to frame another jersey.

Bengal stripes are only stickers, so they weren't exactly what I was expecting. My guess is that they'll wear and peel easily. Still, my boys love wearing them and feeling like real football players.
