Elite Arthur Jones Jersey

INDIANAPOLIS — Colts defensive lineman Arthur Jones(Arthur Jones Jersey) has been suspended the first four games of the season for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances.

The league announced the suspension Friday, saying Jones has been suspended without pay.

Jones, 30, will be eligible to return to the Colts on Oct. 3, one day after their Week 4 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars in London. Jones will be eligible to participate in the Colts’ preseason games and practices.

Jones’ suspension is another discouraging development to come since the Colts signed him to a five-year $33 million contract in 2014. He missed all of last season after suffering an ankle injury in the third preseason game and has played a total of nine games — all in 2014 — with Indianapolis.

There was no guarantee Jones would be ready for the start of training camp after he sat out all of the Colts’ offseason workouts while continuing to work his way back from the ankle injury.

Jones, who took a pay cut this offseason, has 23 tackles and 1.5 sacks with the Colts. He is the brother of mixed martial arts star Jon “Bones” Jones, who is facing a two-year doping suspension from the UFC.

Authentic Kevin Durant Jersey

New Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant(Kevin Durant Jersey) admitted Wednesday that his relationship with former Oklahoma City Thunder teammate Russell Westbrook likely “won’t ever be the same again” and that he’ll just have to get used to being the villain.

Durant told China’s Sina Sports that he talked to Westbrook before signing a two-year deal earlier this month to join a loaded Warriors roster that also boasts two-time reigning MVP Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.

“I just told him. I let him know how I felt,” Durant said of his conversation with Westbrook. “Obviously, our relationship won’t ever be the same again. But it’s something I wanted to do, and I expressed that to him. Hopefully he respected it.”

He also told Sina Sports that he’ll get used to the backlash and the Warriors being labeled as “villains.”

“Yeah, it’s difficult. I’m not used to this much attention, but I’m getting used to it,” Durant said. “Obviously, people don’t like me right now, but it is what it is. I can’t please them all. I’ve got to still go out there and handle my business.

“They’re not going to get up at 9 o’clock in the morning and work on their game for me. I’ve got to do all of that on my own. I can’t worry about people on the outside. I’ve got to go to sleep at night, I’ve got to get up and I’ve got to perform. I’ve got to do all that stuff. It is what it is. Once we start playing the games, I’ll feel a little bit more better. Right now, it’s definitely a change. There’s a different vibe going around, but I’ll get used to it.”

NBA commissioner Adam Silver on Tuesday said he didn’t think Durant’s decision to join the Warriors and form a so-called super team was “ideal from the league standpoint.”

But Durant said the goal — a championship — is what drove him to join the Warriors, and he doesn’t think an excess of talent will be a problem in achieving that goal.

“I want to win a championship, but you’ve got to play great basketball to win a championship,” Durant told Sina Sports. “Those guys were so close last year, so they’re hungry this year to get back. I want to help them. I want to be the guy that takes them over the top.

“We don’t have any selfish players on the team. That’s the thing: I think everybody expects us to play selfish, but guys want to go out there and win and just play the right way. That’s what they’ve been doing. It’s on me to come in there and adapt to what they’ve been doing. It’s going to take me some time, but I’m going to get used to it pretty quick.”

David West Womens Jersey

Power forward David West(David West Jersey) has agreed to a one-year contract for the veteran’s minimum with the Golden State Warriors, NBA.com is reporting.

The Warriors, who have a commitment from Kevin Durant to sign with the team, will lose Harrison Barnes after rescinding their rights to the forward, who plans to sign with the Dallas Mavericks.

Barnes posted a farewell to the Warriors on Twitter on Tuesday.

West, a 13-year veteran, opted out of a $12.6 million deal with the Indiana Pacers last summer to join the San Antonio Spurs for a veteran-minimum contract worth approximately $1.5 million.

West played in 78 games with 19 starts during the 2015-16 season with 19 starts. He averaged 7.1 points and 4.0 rebounds on 54.4 percent shooting as a key cog on a San Antonio bench that produced an NBA-best plus-10.9 net rating. That rating was the best by a bench since the shortened 2011-12 season, when the Chicago Bulls led the NBA with a plus-12.7 mark.

West, 35, harbored no regrets about turning down a more lucrative financial situation with the Pacers to join the Spurs.

West played just nine minutes during San Antonio’s final game of the postseason. He had a $1.5 million player option for the 2016-17 season, which he declined.
