TORONTO -- On Friday, Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant will face a Boston Celtics team that courted him vigorously in the offseason and failed. Cheap Arizona Coyotes Jerseys China .Boston presented a creative pitch at The Hamptons outside New York that included its players and management and the assistance of?New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. The Celtics were one of six teams to meet with the seven-time All-Star during his free agency, but Durant ultimately chose the Warriors -- and that ticked off some individuals in the Massachusetts area.What can they be mad about? Durant said Wednesday night, when asked about how the Celtics faithful might receive him Friday. I never played there. I never said I was going there. But theyre going to support their team. Its one of the best fan bases in the league -- top-five, easily. So no matter who goes in there, theyre going to boo them. But I have no attachment to Boston at all.One of those individuals who was clearly annoyed was Celtics forward Jae Crowder.We were the only team in the NBA to beat [Golden State and the?Cleveland Cavaliers] on their home court. The only team in the NBA, the Boston Celtics, Crowder told three weeks after Durants decision. We told him that. We played him clips from both games and told him basically the scouting report of how we guarded?Steph [Curry] and Klay [Thompson]?-- our entire game plan, basically. Thats what made me mad. We f---ing told him everything we do to beat these guys, and we beat them, and he went and joined them.Afterward, I was talking to?Isaiah [Thomas], like maybe after you sit back, [we] shouldnt have told him everything, but who the f--- thought he was going to Golden State, realistically? It was like a slap in the face for us, basically.Durant was asked if Crowders comments irked him.Nah, it dont bother me, he said. All these guys that you ask the same questions, you know what youre going to get from them. So youre [asking] the same questions. Why am I going to be mad about a guy who has an opinion? I respect all these players. If they dont respect what I did, I cant control that.After Wednesdays 90-83 win over the Dallas Mavericks, Thomas was asked if there was any lingering bitterness because Durant chose Golden State.No, Ive been past that. Maybe for Jae, Thomas said with a smile. Jae still might be mad. But Im past it.Asked about his initial reaction to Durants decision, Thomas said, I was just surprised. Probably like everybody else. I wasnt mad. I knew we had a chance -- we had a pretty good chance at that. I was just surprised he chose the Warriors, but thats that mans decision.It is unknown whether Crowder and Durant will meet Friday. Crowder has missed the past seven games with a left ankle injury.If Crowder is a go for the game, Durant will respectfully welcome the challenge of competing against him -- and anybody else in green and white.I got nothing but love and respect for Jae Crowder and how he approaches the game and how he plays, but we disagree on me coming here, Durant said. Thats just how it is. Its all good. Were going to compete no matter what. Thats one thing -- you can say a lot of stuff in the media or wherever you are, but were going to compete when were in between the lines. That doesnt change anything.Fridays game will be broadcast on ESPN.ESPN staff writer Chris Forsberg contributed to this report.Cheap Buffalo Sabres Jerseys China .

It was a step the IOC declined to take when it had the chance last month.The 267 entries which Russian Paralympic athletes earned in 18 sports for the Sept. 7-18 games in Rio will now be allocated to other nations not judged responsible for orchestrated cheating.Russia won 36 gold medals at the 2012 Paralympics, second most in London, and was a runaway table-topping leader at its home 2014 Winter Paralympics.PRO FOOTBALLFRISCO, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant will miss the next preseason game after suffering a concussion in practice.Coach Jason Garrett said Bryant was hurt a day earlier when the receivers head hit the shoulder pads of safety Barry Church.

BASEBALLMILWAUKEE -- A woman was struck in the left ear by a line drive down the third base line in the second inning of the Milwaukee Brewers game with the Colorado Rockies.The game was delayed about 2 minutes after the line drive from Nick Hundley went into the first couple of rows near the photographers well adjacent to the Rockies dugout.Miller Park ushers quickly called for medical assistance, and the woman was assisted for about 8 minutes before being carried out on a sitting stretcher. Once out of the seating area, the stretcher was lowered so she was lying down and she was put into an ambulance.No further information was immediately released.The Brewers extended the netting at Miller Park before the season started to the inside edge of each dugout. Only Kansas City, Minnesota and Washington have netting that covers the entire length of the dugout.CINCINNATI -- The Texas Rangers placed Josh Hamilton on unconditional release waivers, though they hope his surgically rebuilt left knee is healthy enough to allow him to try for a spot with the team next season.Texas activated Hamilton off the 60-day disabled list and put him on waivers, a move that was expected.

Nevada determined last fall that daily fantasy sports sites qualified as gambling and needed to shut down if they didnt have a license.But casino heavy-hitters on Nevadas Gaming Policy Committee expressed disappointment Tuesday with the low penalties and lack of criminal background checks in the companies proposal, saying it was weaker than laws passed in other states and didnt measure up to Nevadas rigorous gambling regulation.
