Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook walks down the court in the final seconds of Game 2 of the team’s NBA basketball first-round playoff series against the Houston Rockets, Wednesday, April 19, 2017, in Houston. APAfter averaging a triple-double and bagging the 2017 NBA MVP Award, its’ safe to say that Russell Westbrook had his way against most NBA defenders throughout the 2016-2017 NBA season.The 28-year-old point guard relied on his freakish athleticism to dominate the competition, tallying unworldly averages of 31.6 points, 10.7 boards and 10.4 dimes, while playing 81 games for the Oklahoma City Thunder.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ Jo Koy: My brain always wants to think funny Although most defenses appeared helpless against the seemingly unstoppable guard, the reigning NBA champions Golden State Warriors reportedly do not fear his daredevil play style.In an episode of the “Low Post” podcast, ESPN’s Zach Lowe shared that some members from the Warriors locker room believe that the high-flying guard is “so easy to defend, it’s like cake to them.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSFederer blasts lack of communication on Australian Open smogAlthough his statistical average against the Warriors remained stellar, Westbrook only shot 37.5 percent from the field and turned the ball over 32 times in four contests. The Thunder also dropped all four games.However, he visibly lacked on-court support last year, often putting the entire team on his shoulders for most of the year.

Coco’s house rules on ‘Probinsyano’ set “You can’t win without that,” Memphis center Marc Gasol said. “Even if you look at teams like Golden State, you see a team that obviously has a lot of firepower, their defense is really outstanding, how they all move together at the same time, how they all shift as a unit from one side to the other … Then they give you 125 points, too. But they really do play a lot of great defense.”Against the T-Wolves, Golden State blocked nine shots — its 11th time in 12 games with at least seven swats — three by reserve Omri Casspi and another two from Draymond Green, and didn’t allow a 20-point performance by Minnesota. Nick Young came off the bench to make a career-high four steals in 20-plus minutes.“It’s finally coming along. We’re starting to put it together,” Green said. “We’re taking more ownership in one-on-one defense. We’ve just locked in more on one-on-one defense and taking on the challenge.”Part of that, according to player development coach Chris DeMarco, is “being the aggressors, being active defensively and trusting that the guys around us will help if we get beat.”While a handful of turnovers led to easy baskets by Minnesota, for the most part the Warriors were disciplined in their defensive assignments. It has been that way for a stretch of games now.It didn’t hurt Golden State shot 65.9 percent after halftime in pulling away from the overmatched Timberwolves, who were on a roll with five straight wins before the stop in Oakland.“I think you learn a lot from playing against them because that’s what a championship team looks like. They play hard. They play together. You look at their willingness to sacrifice for each other and make plays,” T-Wolves coach Tom Thibodeau said. “They had 37 assists on 48 baskets. Their defense over the last five games has been back to what their defense is. That’s why they’ve been able to win the way they’ve won. I think their willingness to sacrifice and play for each other is what makes them great. They take good shots. They make the game easy for each other. When you do that, the results will be good.”___AP Sports Writer Teresa M. Walker contributed to this report. “I know if we focus on taking care of the basketball and playing solid defense, and focusing on that, and really, hopefully, regardless of how our offense is, we’ll be in a good position to win games,” Curry said.Golden State limited the Timberwolves to 41.3 percent from the floor and a dismal 5 of 24 on 3-pointers on the way to winning its fifth straight.“You saw how beautiful that was in the second half with 37 assists overall. It’s all about taking care of the ball and defending,” Kerr said. “The defense part I’m really pleased with. I think this is about our fifth straight really good defensive effort we have had so that’s a great sign.”He gave his team a day off Thursday before getting back to work Friday in preparation for Philadelphia.Other teams and opposing players notice the Warriors’ attention to detail on the defensive end, even if their high-flying offensive show is typically the focus of scouting reports and film sessions.ADVERTISEMENT Jo Koy: My brain always wants to think funny Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Paul Julien (1901-2001) was an anthropologist from the Netherlands who traveled through Liberia in 1932. Andrea Stultiens (1974) is a photographer and researcher from the Netherlands. She tries to connect the past that was documented by Paul Julien to the past as remembered in Liberia and the way it is connected to the present. Julien’s photographs are part of the collection of the Netherlands Fotomuseum in Rotterdam.From July 19th till August 19th 2014 Julien’s photographs and the film he made will be on display at the National Museum. Leading up to this some of the stories are shared in History & Us columns by Andrea Stultiens. Comments or questions are most welcome on firstname.lastname@example.orgThis week’s photographs by Paul Julien take us to Krutown, while what he writes about it, and what this leads us to, probably says more about how Africa at large was perceived in other parts of the world than about the reality in Liberia in 1932.Julien does not refer to what is currently known as Krutown, but to old Krutown, located just below the Catholic mission on, as I have been told, the rocks that in the 1940s would be used to construct the Freeport. When describing Kru-town for a Belgian magazine in 1933 Julien notes that, “The Americo-Liberian society, that is without any doubt the most civilised part of the state, has ever since Liberia was founded certain contradictions to the native population of the coast and interior. These contrasts are sometimes very obvious, sometimes hidden, but they exist, and for instant last year, in 1932, they surfaced in a painful way during the Kru-war.”It is remarkable how he writes about ‘the Kru-war’ as a war that should be known to the people in Belgium, a country then still recovering from the first World War that destroyed it a decade and a half earlier. Maybe it is just the terminology used that made it hard for me to find any references to this Kru-war. Easier to find are references to the revolt that, according to a strange short article in an Australian newspaper on October 13th 1932, included “Tribal fighting, in which chiefs enter the fray wearing tall hats and other striking adornment.” Dr. Mackenzie was a member of the League of Nations hygiene section and “despatched to the interior of Liberia to pacify the Kru tribes.”The article reports how “Dr. Mackenzie […] penetrated into a wilderness previously untrodden by white man…” in the hinterland where he supposedly had to “cut tracks in the virgin forest where warlike tribes in ambush awaited the chance to kill stragglers.” He found that “18 tribes were concerned in the rebellion; 42 towns were burned and 12,000 men, women and children were driven into the bush and were dying of starvation.” Mackenzie supposedly established peace within four months and “induced the tribes to return to their own territories.”According to Paul Julien the territory of the Krus was actually south of Monrovia. He types them as ‘historically seafaring people’ that work on cargo ships that pass Monrovia and continue along the West-African coast. While Anthony Morgan, the initiator of the Historical Preservations Society of Liberia explains in an online article the complexity of the use of the name Krus, since, according to him, it is a collective term that was used by Europeans for all “with whom they traded as far back as the fifteenth century.”Paul Julien visits Krutown and describes it as being in a “sharp contrast to Monrovia, of which it is not even two minutes walking distance away. [It] consists completely of square huts with grass thatched roofs. It is obviously situated on the shore, with a wide sandy beach separating it from the surf.”When comparing the two he makes sure the Belgian audience will understand what he means, by relating to what they should know. “Up, in Monrovia, the city still reminds one of a capital city, with streets and buildings that, even though only from afar, remind one somewhat of Europe.” While in Krutown, “The narrow muddy alleys that wind in a marvelous disorder through the village are the set for the life of the coastal residents. Small naked youngsters run around in the sand. Elswewhere a Kru-mother is taking care of her baby while smoking a pipe. Every now and then there is a child, seated in a dooropening, holding a book. These are the students of the mission school located just above Kru-town. I wander through the village for hours, and all this time I am followed by a group of children. The youth have a lot of interest in my filmcamera and every other toddler jumps aside frightened when I point the lens at him and he hears the purring sound of the transport of the tape inside the machine.”The result of the transported tape in the machine will be on display at the National Museum in July, and next week Julien will show us what Broadstreet and Ashmunstreet looked like in 1932.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
