Sheridan Hoops Wed, 19 Oct 2016 14:00:47 +0000 en-US hourly 1 NBA to Focus on New Talent and Back Basketball Academies in China Mon, 17 Oct 2016 19:21:47 +0000

Yao MingFor a long time now, people in China have been huge fans of the NBA. Yao Ming is China’s retired NBA star and probably one of the reasons why basketball, particularly, the NBA developed a large fan following in China. In fact, Ming was recently inducted into the Hall of Fame on September 9th in Springfield, Massachusetts.

Now the league is turning to China and hopes to recruit talent there. In their recent announcement, they made it quite clear that they will be opening a set of training camps for the elite male and female basketball players. It didn’t come as a surprise considering China is the largest market for NBA after the USA. In fact, China boasts of an estimated 300 million fans!

When you talk about sports and especially basketball, many fans like to support their teams by placing bets. Although online gambling and betting is officially illegal in China, the Chinese government operates two lotteries because they don’t consider lotteries as a form of gambling. However, illegal gambling is prevalent in China and many individuals use betting bonuses at Betfred to get the best deals while signing up at online casinos.

The NBA and Ministry of China Join Hands

The three existing training centers in China – Urumqi, Hangzhou and Jinan will serve as the NBA Academies. The players who attend these training centres will have access to NBA-trained coaches, over and above focusing on school and learning about character development and leadership.

These centers will train under-16 and under-18 teams. These teams will compete throughout the year. The players who perform extremely well will get a chance to travel abroad for international games. This groundbreaking partnership aims to offer enhanced training to a minimum of 3 million students by 2017.

As a part of the curriculum, NBA coaches, legends as well as players will visit Chinese schools. They will conduct basketball clinics as well as offer specialised instructions to physical education teachers and Chinese coaches. The Ministry of Education will select a few physical education teachers and Chinese coaches who will get a chance to observe as well as participate in coaching activities organized by the NBA.

The launch of NBA Academies was announced by Adam Silver, the NBA commissioner. This move is NBA’s newest push to embrace its fans in China as well. In fact, it’s already been hosting a numerous set of exhibition games for the last 10 years. The viewers in China also regularly stream the NBA games when they are being played in the US.

The experts say that China has been struggling to produce new basketball stars like Yao Ming because the youth are pressured to focus on studies and crucial college entrance exams. Hence, participation and training in sports like basketball takes a backseat.

So, this partnership will certainly help the game to grow in China.

NBA China

klaychinaThe NBA’s Chinese entity was formed in January 2008. It has been conducting all the businesses in the greater China region. In fact, NBA hosted the Chinese National Team for the first time in 1985. So, it’s safe to say that it has been interacting with Chinese basketball for decades now.

At the moment, the NBA has a strong relationship with a number of television as well as digital media outlets in China. This includes a partnership with CCTV, China’s national broadcaster that is more than 25 years old!

NBA hosts 100s of touring basketball events for their fans in China. It also carries out community enrichment programs. Through the NBA’s partnership with NBA China, it will support the Ministry of Education in operating the elementary, middle and high school basketball leagues of China.

In the meantime, we will just have to wait and watch to see how this new partnership progresses. What do you think of NBA’s decision of recruiting talent from China? Leave your comments below.

Basketball Players Who Gamble in Casinos Tue, 27 Sep 2016 16:42:49 +0000

Everyone will enjoy having a little gamble every now and then, and with that in mind we have dedicated this article to introducing you to many different Basketball players who have been spotted gambling in land based casinos. Have a look at the list of online casinos for players from USA from here which allows anyone from US to play casino online.

There is of course nothing illegal or wrong with those players gambling either on the card and table games to video poker and slot games, and who knows if you ever do visit and land based casino anywhere in the world you may bump into a Basketball player you know of and possibly like too!

DeMarre Carroll – One player who does enjoy a gamble is DeMarre Carroll in fact he was recently spotted late at night in a casino the night before a big game and his coach for Toronto Raptors did have to say on record and in public that the poor performance of the team in that match had nothing to do with that player visiting the casino!

Cory Joseph – Cory Joseph was actually spotted in the same casino with DeMarre Carroll and that did lead to speculation that their team’s performance was below par the following day due to their late night gambling!

Charles Barkley – Whilst you can win a fortune gambling in a casino, you do of course always run the risk of doing exactly the opposite and one Basketball player back in 2006, that being Charles Barkley let it be known that he had lost in total $10million gambling, which is never a good thing to happen to anyone Basketball player or not!

Antoine Walker – Estimated to have lost his personal fortune of some $108 million, Antoine Walker is certainly not lucky when it comes to gambling. In fact, when at his worse he was writing checks that his bank would not honour, due to there obviously being no money left in his account, and he was eventually arrested for writing bad checks to Las Vegas based casinos!

Allen Iverson – Having made up to $200million in his career, anyone would think that Allen Iverson was set up for life, however he is yet another Basketball player, and a very well-known one who does or should we say did enjoy gambling in casinos.

For due to a downward spiral of luck he squandered away his mega fortune and he has now found himself banned from land based casinos in both Detroit and Atlantic City, where he was of course well courted and looked after like a VIP by those casinos until thing turned bad.

Just keep in mind if you do decide to gamble yourself then always set yourself some limits before you place your very first bet and also stick to those limits too!

Staying the Form of Players – You really do need to stay on top of the form of each Basketball player, for you may need to swap some of your players during a season long contest if any of them are playing below their expected form. Therefore, by knowing who is currently bang in form then those players can be added to your team in exchange for the worse performing players you originally chose.

Be Prepared to Change Your Players – Never be tempted to hang onto players who are not performing well, and be prepared to change them when the window of opportunity arises during the season as by changing players you will keep your team fresh and bang up to date with players on top of their current form which will increase your overall chances of winning.

Fantasy Sports Contests to Enter – Finally it is worth keeping in mind that some Fantasy Sports Contests have guaranteed prize pools, and as such if you find any of them that are undersubscribed then you will have a much increased chance of winning when you enter those contests, due to the lower number of other entrants you will have to beat with your selected team and obviously your final score.

Vegas 2016-17 over/under win totals for each NBA team Wed, 21 Sep 2016 20:17:31 +0000

overunderGood news for NBA fans whose hands are itching to start betting on basketball; BetNow Sportsbook revealed the over/under win totals for the 2016-17 season.

Team-Over/Under Wins

  • Atlanta Hawks 43.5
  • Boston Celtics 51.5
  • Brooklyn Nets 20.5
  • Charlotte Hornets 39.5
  • Chicago Bulls 38.5
  • Cleveland Cavaliers 56.5
  • Dallas Mavericks 39.5
  • Denver Nuggets 34.5
  • Detroit Pistons 45.5
  • Golden State Warriors 66.5
  • Houston Rockets 41.5
  • Indiana Pacers 43.5
  • Los Angeles Clippers 53.5
  • Los Angeles Lakers 24.5
  • Memphis Grizzlies 43.5
  • Miami Heat 36.5
  • Milwaukee Bucks 39.5
  • Minnesota Timberwolves 41.5
  • New Orleans Pelicans 36.5
  • New York Knicks 38.5
  • Oklahoma City Thunder 45.5
  • Orlando Magic 36.5
  • Philadelphia 76ers 27.5
  • Phoenix Suns 26.5
  • Portland Trail Blazers 46.5
  • Sacramento Kings 32.5
  • San Antonio Spurs 56.5
  • Toronto Raptors 49.5
  • Utah Jazz 47.5
  • Washington Wizards 42.5

The Golden State Warriors added Kevin Durant to the starting lineup but lost bench depth. Nonetheless, at 66.5 they could still drop six games as compared to last season (a record breaking 73-win campaign) and still cover the over.

The San Antonio Spurs lost both Tim Duncan and Boris Diaw, but if fans betting on basketball should have faith in Gregg Popovich’s winning culture and the combined talents of Kawhi Leonard, Manu Ginobili, and the newly arrived Pau Gasol, they will see that 56.5 is not as high as it seems at first.

The Philadelphia 76ers are 7.5 wins higher than they were at this time last year, and 17.5 more than they actually won last season. The Sixers drafted Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons, but might trade Jahlil Okafor and Nerlens Noel, so 28 wins does seem a bit far-fetched.

Las Vegas tends to go low on the Memphis Grizzlies, except when something unforeseen happens, like last year’s injury barrage. However, unless Marc Gasol, Mike Conley, and/or Chandler Parsons suffer season-ending injuries, they should have no trouble going beyond 43.5.

The Utah Jazz could conceivably win 50 games, and then again they might not. This is what people betting on basketball know as a toss-up.

Brook Lopez’s foot injuries could justify that the Brooklyn Nets have this year’s lowest projected win total, taking that dubious honor away from the Sixers.

The post-Kobe Bryant Los Angeles Lakers are starting a youth movement that might not aspire to more than that 24.5, but a single good month could push them past that mark.

The Denver Nuggets may not be bound for the postseason, but 35 wins seem like a reasonable goal for a talented roster and a good coaching staff.

The Cleveland Cavaliers’ under is right on par with what they accomplished last season, and there is no reason to believe that they won’t have a similar campaign in 2016-17.

The Atlanta Hawks basically traded Al Horford for Dwight Howard, but Las Vegas always goes low on them. Smart money would suggest taking the over.

The Boston Celtics have a higher over/under than the Toronto Raptors, which actually reflects their slightly better odds to win the division title.

Three Reasons Why You Need a Sports Betting System to Make Money With Your Sport Picks Thu, 01 Sep 2016 07:51:46 +0000

moneySports betting has grown to be one of the most entertaining ways to watch sports and make some money while you are at it. Though many people will think that you need to be a genius or a sports fanatic to love the hobby, this is actually completely false. There are many sports betting people out there who make a very nice return on their investment through sports wagering. There are certain sports betting systems (example: Sbat) that will make the process easier and allow you to enjoy the experience more. These sports betting systems will allow you to make some money and actually allow you to treat it as an extra source of income.

While some people have tried betting on sports in the past and found themselves on the losing end, there are people who bet on sports out there that consistently make a profit. What is their ‘secret’? These people will most of the time follow a sports betting system. Following are three reasons you should use a sports betting system when making sports wagers.

Get The Best Picks:

Sports wagering is all about picking the right teams. You need to choose wisely and many people don’t know where to start. Not everyone can be a sports fanatic and people do not have enough time to be able to study stats and odds. Being able to pick the right players and teams is what really makes you a good sports bettor. This is what the sports betting systems can do for you and they will give you the best chance at picking the best teams. Sports wagering is all about being able to predict which team will win and to use stats to make the most educated guess. However, there are other things that can affect the outcome, and to try and come up with your own system is a lot of work and takes a lot of time.

Return on your Investment:

You simply do not need to be a sports fan to enjoy betting on sports. Just as long as you have the money to be able to bet and to have a good idea of which teams are good, you will be able to make the right bets and at the same time make a nice return on your initial investment. Watching sports can be very fun but having a bet on a certain team will dramatically increase the excitement of the game. What most people don’t understand is that there is a lot of money to be made through betting on sports and it is a good idea to invest in sports. People who invest in sports treat it as another part of their investment portfolio. With consistent gains through a solid sports betting system, gaining an average of 2% daily on your bankroll is not unheard of.

No Special Skill Needed :

Contrary to popular belief, you simply do not need any skill to see profit in sports wagering. You will however need access to a legit sports betting system and to also work with the right people. Since all of the work and the research will be done for you, the process simply becomes a breeze. Sports wagering is all about being able to choose the right teams, but since you will have the support of the sports betting system, it becomes easier. Many sports betting systems will email their plays for that particular day and all you need to do is complete them on your end. The only ‘work’ involved would be to maintain a solid money management strategy. Combining the sports betting system with a solid money management system will allow you to see nice returns on your investment for a long time.

If you are a sports fan or simply would like to enjoy them more, then there is nothing like sports betting. When you wager money during a game, you simply start to enjoy the game more. Most people will admit that most sporting events are boring unless they have something on the line. However, a lot of people will steer away from sports betting because they simply have no idea what to do. Just as long as you have the right information and the correct mindset, you will be able to really enjoy sports much more. With just a little experience and patience, a sports betting strategy can be a great way to relax and make money.

Fantasy Basketball vs. the Real Thing Tue, 23 Aug 2016 16:41:12 +0000

Fantasy sports are now increasingly popular all over the world and there are now many different sports which have fantasy leagues that players can participate. All you have to do is assemble your team with real players from that sport and then you will pick up points based on the statistical performance of your players in their real matches, the performances are then converted into points that are compiled and totaled throughout the season according to the team picked by each manager. Throughout the season managers often get the chance to draft, trade and cut players during certain periods of the season. This is a multibillion-dollar industry and includes baseball, football (NFL), soccer, wrestling, MMA and basketball and a number of people partake in online fantasy sports betting due to the popularity of the industry.

Basketball remains among the most popular fantasy sports played where you draft your favorite NBA players and then compete against your friends. For example, if you were to draft LeBron James and he scores 30 points in a game compiled from his scores, assists, rebounds and steals, then those 30 points would count towards your weekly total. The appeal is that by owning and competing against every big name player in the NBA will result in every game mattering to you, not just the team you support.

Fantasy sports provide an extra social interaction between you and your friends, colleagues or whoever you end up in a league with. It’s all about bragging rights and being able to say you did better than your opponents on a certain week or maybe you’ve been leading the league for a long time now.

Generally in fantasy basketball you will be scored on points, rebounds, assists, blocks, steals, 3-pointers, field goal percentage and free throw percentage. These are things to bear in mind when picking your team as you want every position on the court to be as strong as possible. A good defense is just as important as having players that are going to score lots of points.

With basketball you can choose how you compete with the other managers in your league, one of the most popular ways is in head-to-head leagues. No matter how you keep score you are guaranteed to accumulate wins and losses along the way, for example in a head to head league you’re up against opponent A in the first week and you beat them you’d be 1-0 up. Then let’s say you lose against opponent B and then beat C the third week you’re on 2-1 for the season. In head-to-head play you’ll find the regular basketball season usually finishes by the end of March as there is then the playoffs afterwards. Therefore the winner of your fantasy league will be determined in the final weeks of the regular NBA season depending on whether your league goes one or two weeks per playoff game.

The alternate to head-to-head is roto (rotisserie) leagues where you don’t have a different opponent every week. Instead you follow your teams cumulative categorical totals as the season progresses, in this instance there are no playoffs, just a standard league table where whoever finished first is the winner and has bragging rights over the rest of the league.

Can sports video games offer a good user experience? Mon, 15 Aug 2016 21:25:35 +0000

Video games get a bad press sometimes, with stories of addiction and gamers cutting themselves off from the outside world, but in truth, video games offer a positive user experience and sports video games are no exception to this.

Gaming is the same as any other pastime; if done in moderation, balanced with responsibilities such as work and family, it is perfectly healthy. It even offers benefits that, taken together, make for a good user experience. For one thing, gaming offers an escape from everyday life, giving you the opportunity to do something you truly enjoy for its own sake, and not because you have to.

Gaming also exposes players to creative, imaginative scenarios they may not necessarily experience elsewhere, and can improve hand-to-eye coordination, memory and perception. If you want a hobby that improves your problem-solving skills, then video games can help in that respect too.

For sports games that makes you feel as if you are at the heart of the action, look no further than basketball games. Since the 1990s, basketball games have offered the type of immersive environment that gamers really appreciate, with five-on-five simulation play, full-season options, and the realistic statistics all introduced over the years.

Playing basketball for real is great fun and if you are a basketball fan, shooting a few hoops with friends or colleagues is a great way to relieve stress and get some exercise, but when you do not have anyone to play with, cannot get a court, the weather is bad or you simply are not feeling that energetic, a basketball game – or any video game for that matter – is a great option for some downtime.

The man behind the success of such video games franchises as Call of Duty, Bobby Kotick, knows a thing or two about good user experiences. Activision Blizzard, of which Kotick is CEO and President, has become one of the leading gaming companies in the world. Kotick has used this success to help others, founding the Call of Duty Endowment, which assists veterans in developing high-quality careers after leaving military service.

Activision Blizzard is working to bring sports and video game technology to the next level with its esports division, which it set up in October 2015. The esports division aims to build on the demand for competitive video gaming, drawing on the best practices developed by traditional sports to make tournaments that are already filling out sports stadiums more mainstream.

Not only do gamers get to bring the skills they have spent years honing to bear in a more structured competitive environment, fans get to share in the experience, much like fans of traditional sports do when they go to watch their favorite players or teams.

You do not have to delve too deeply to find criticism of video gaming, despite it being an established, legitimate form of entertainment, but as a fun and relaxing pastime, enjoyed in moderation, video gaming offers a positive user experience, and can provide tangible benefits too.

Why Sports Betting Apps Are Such a Big Deal Thu, 28 Jul 2016 16:14:25 +0000

Sports attract a lot of viewers, and the NBA is particularly popular. People who understand sports can often predict the outcomes of particular games and that often surprises people. But predicting the outcome of an NBA game is not just something that will amuse your company, it can be very lucrative if you place a bet on it. People how are into sports betting eagerly wait for the basketball and all the other seasons to begin, as there’s not much choice during the summer. Now it is even possible to place wagers on your smartphone, as there are a lot of available mobile apps. Large amounts of money can be won with a small wager at mobile casino as well. Here are more casino apps that offer interesting games. Mobile betting rose significantly in the past years and several operators registered significantly greater mobile betting revenues.

It Is Possible to Deposit and Withdraw Money

Some might be wondering why sports betting apps are such a big deal. First of all, it is a lot easier to bet using them. Literally any bet that you may want to place is just few clicks away. Most of these apps are user-friendly and using them is piece of cake. You can choose one or multiple selections and you can check how much you can potentially earn. Moreover, making deposits and withdrawing money from your betting amount is also quite easy. Most betting operators support at least few payment methods and you can choose the one that suits you most.



A Lot of Apps Offer Tips and Predictions

In addition to apps that allow you to bet on your smartphone, there are also bets that can help you make the right choice when it comes to betting. Of course, no app can guarantee that you’re going to win and if some of them claim that they can, they’re lying. However, there are a lot of free or cheap apps that offer quite useful betting advice. Some of them include the latest news and thorough analysis in which the suggestion for a particular game is explained, whereas other employ complex algorithms and calculations which predict the outcomes of basketball games, as well as games of other sports.

Betting on NBA Is Easy

Betting on the NBA is quite easy and there are multiple available betting options. You can bet both on individual games, as well as on the season as a whole. For example, you can place a bet that your favorite team will be the champion, or that it will reach the play-offs even before the season begins. These bets are usually called future bets.

When it comes to betting on individual matches you can place a variety of bets like money-line, spread bets, totals, halftime bets, 1st quarter bets, as well as parlays and teasers.


Money-Line and Spread Betting

A money-line is a bet where the odds are based on the likelihood of each of the teams to win the game. If the Spurs face the Bulls and the Spurs are the favorite for the current match then the odds for the spurs will probably be negative, say -750, whereas the odds for the Bulls would be +500. The negative odds show how much you have to wager to earn $100, whereas the positives tell you how much you’ll earn with a $100 bet.

Spread betting was introduced to eliminate the advantage that a team has. Therefore, a presupposed advantage is given to the underdog. Let’s say that for the same game the difference between the two teams is judged to be 8.5 points. That means that in order for a bet to be winning the Spurs would have to win with 9 or more points, whereas if the Bulls lose by 8 or less they are considered to be winners for the purpose of the bet.

Totals, Parlays and Other Bets

The total is a bet placed on the total number of points scored by both teams taken together. A number of points is set, let’s say 188.5. If the game ends with 188 or few points scored, then it is an under, whereas if 189 or more points are scored it is an over. You may place spread and total bets on just the first half or the first quarter and then only the result at the end of that period is considered, regardless what happens later in the game.

A parlay is a bet placed on more than one selection. For example if there are 5 games in one day and you like to bet on all of them, you can combine them in a parlay bet. Just remember that all selections have to win for the bet to be a win. Teasers are similar to parlays, but due to the fact that it is a lot more difficult to correctly predict the outcome of a bigger number of games, you are allowed to adjust the point spread in your favor. This decreases the eventual winnings, but significantly increases your winning chances.

It is even possible to bet on the NBA draft. The odds that Ben Simmons and Brandon Ingram will be picks number 1 and 2 were pretty low on the last day of the draft, at only -800, but let’s be honest, everybody pretty much expected these two players to be picked first.
