SAN FRANCISCO -- Nate Thurmond, the tenacious defensive center who played with Wilt Chamberlain and was an iconic figure in two cities, died Saturday after a short battle with leukemia. He was 74.The Golden State Warriors announced the death of one of the teams most respected players less than a month after they lost the NBA Finals to the Cleveland Cavaliers in seven games. Both franchises previously retired Thurmonds No. 42.Thurmond, an Akron, Ohio native, played 11 of his 14 seasons with the Warriors and retired after the 1976-77 season, one year after leading the Miracle Cavaliers to an improbable trip to the Eastern Conference finals.?Without a doubt, he is one of the most beloved figures to ever wear a Warriors uniform, Golden State owner Joe Lacob said.Current Cavalier and Akron native LeBron James?posted a tribute to Thurmond on his Twitter account, as did current Warriors star Stephen Curry.?The 6-foot-11 Thurmond is considered one of the most dominant centers in NBA history. He was voted one of the NBAs 50 Greatest Players in 1996 and was No. 92 on ESPNs All-Time #NBArank Top 100.?He was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1985.Nate Thurmond was a giant of his era and one of the greatest players in the history of our game, NBA commissioner Adam Silver said in a statement.Thurmonds play and numbers werent flashy, but he earned the respect of his peers and knowledgeable basketball fans for his consistency, defense and strength.Looking back, he was as ferocious as any player in the history of the game on the court, but one of the kindest and nicest souls in his everyday life, said former teammate and coach Al Attles.Thurmond recorded the first official quadruple-double in NBA history as a Chicago Bull when he had 22 points, 14 rebounds, 13 assists and 12 blocked shots against the Atlanta Hawks in 1974. He is one of only four players to grab more than 40 rebounds in a game.Thurmond starred at Bowling Green, averaging 17.8 points and 17.0 rebounds in three seasons. He was selected third overall by the Warriors in the 1963 draft.Thurmond apprenticed under Hall of Fame center Wilt Chamberlain until the Warriors traded Chamberlain to the Philadelphia 76ers in the middle of the 1964-65 season. Thurmond went on to average 15 points and 15 rebounds a game during his career and still holds the Warriors franchise records for career rebounds and minutes.We have lost an incredible person and someone whom I admired as much as any player I ever went to battle against on any level, Hall of Famer Jerry West said. Nate Thurmond was, without a doubt, one of the fiercest competitors that I played against during my entire career. He played with unbelievable intensity and was simply a man among boys on most nights, especially on the defensive end.The Warriors traded Thurmond to the Bulls prior to the 1974-75 season. The Bulls traded him after 13 games the next season to his hometown Cavaliers, where he closed out his career in style.He played a key role in the Cavaliers playoff run his first year in Cleveland. The Cavaliers beat the Washington Bullets in dramatic fashion in seven games to get to the Eastern Conference finals. The Cavaliers lost to the Boston Celtics in six games in the finals, but Thurmonds leadership that season made him a local legend.Cavaliers teammate Campy Russell said Saturday that the Cavaliers franchise will always love and respect him as a true Cavalier legend.Though he played less than two seasons for the Cavaliers at the end of his career, his jersey number was the first retired by the team.After the seven-time All-Star selection retired, he worked for the Warriors as a community liaison and broadcast analyst until his illness sidelined him earlier this year.Nate brought the same passion to his longtime community-relations role with the Golden State Warriors, who benefited from his deep knowledge of the game and warmth and kindness to everyone he encountered for more than 30 years, Silvers statement said.Thurmond also opened a popular barbecue restaurant in San Francisco called Big Nates BBQ, which he sold in 2011.The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Garnett was dealt -- along with Paul Pierce -- to Brooklyn during the off-season. http://www.zapatillasnmd.es/ultra-boost.html . After a lengthy wait, persistent rain finally forced the postponement of the Nationals game against the Miami Marlins on Saturday night. The teams, and a few thousand fans, waited nearly four hours from the 7:05 scheduled start time before an announcement was made shortly before 11 p. Adidas Nmd r2 Baratas .Y. -- Marcell Dareus and the Buffalo Bills defence made life miserable for Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco. Adidas Zx Flux Negras y Doradas . Louis Rams wide receiver Stedman Bailey last Sunday. The fine is the fourth this season for Goldson. He was fined $30,000 for a hit on the New York Jets Jeff Cumberland in Week 1. COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Jake Hubenak threw for 248 yards and a touchdown and Myles Garrett had 4 1/2 sacks to help No. 23 Texas A&M get back on track with a 23-10 win over UTSA on Saturday.The Aggies (8-3) were in need of a victory after consecutive losses to Mississippi State and Mississippi ruined their shot at the College Football Playoff.The Roadrunners cut the lead to 3 points early in the second quarter after a one-handed touchdown grab by Josh Stewart. The Aggies then scored the next 13 points, capped by a 47 yard run by Trayveon Williams to make it 23-7 in the third quarter.There was a lot of good and a lot of bad, Texas A&M receiver Josh Reynolds said. Theres still a lot of things that we can fix, but ultimately we were moving the ball and scoring.UTSA (5-6) was led by Jared Johnson, who threw for 186 yards and a touchdown.Garrett was finally healthy after missing two games and being limited in several others because of a high ankle sprain. Garrett finished with eight tackles, broke up a pass and forced a fumble. Instead of limping as he has been in recent weeks, Garrett was harassing UTSAs two quarterbacks all game.He further showed his ankle is fine when he batted down a pass in the second quarter and celebrated with a spirited dance. He had another big play in the fourth quarter when he sacked Johnson to force a fumble, which A&M recovered.You can see the difference, Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin said. Hes a dominant player when hes 100 percent.Garrett has 8 1/2 sacks this season to give him 32 1/2 for his career, making him the eighth player in Southeeastern Conference history with at least 30 career sacks.ddddddddddddThey are phenomenal at the defensive end position, UTSA coach Frank Wilson said. We tried to do various things to keep them off balance, and assist with blocking with tight ends, but there were a couple of times where Myles Garrett and the other defensive end were able to get beyond us and were disruptive.Reynolds caught a 16-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter and finished with 93 yards receiving. Williams had 11 carries for 80 yards to leave him 44 yards shy of becoming the first true freshman at the school to rush for 1,000 yards.THE TAKEAWAYUTSA: The Roadrunners, who have had a football team only since 2011, showed theyve made a lot of progress by keeping things close. But in the end they just arent yet on the level to deal with the size and speed of a team like Texas A&M.TEXAS A&M: The Aggies did what they were supposed to do against a lesser opponent, but Hubenak and the offense will need to be sharper when they return to SEC play next week.Hes been effective for what weve asked him to do, Sumlin said. His biggest characteristic right now is hes finding the playmakers.UP NEXTUTSA: The Roadrunners will look to become bowl eligible for the first time when they host Charlotte on Saturday.TEXAS A&M: The Aggies face a quick turnaround, wrapping up the regular season Thursday night when they host No. 16 LSU.---More AP college football http://collegefootball.ap.org Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
