Adam Silver has encouraged the Philadelphia 76ers to both quickly and thoroughly resolve the investigation into whether team president Bryan Colangelo used Twitter inappropriately [url=http://www.authenticsnewenglandpatriots.com/cheap-danny-shelton-jersey]Danny Shelton Color Rush Jersey[/url] , a story that the NBA commissioner acknowledged was not one he wants to be thinking about during the league’s title series.

Silver, speaking Thursday before Game 1 of the Cleveland-Golden State matchup at the NBA Finals news conference, said he has talked with 76ers officials after the story about five Twitter accounts and how they were used was broken by The Ringer earlier this week.

”Here we are, Game 1 of the finals, it’s not necessarily something that we want to be talking about,” Silver said. ”But it’s the reality of this league. And so I have no information beyond that, other than that investigation is underway.”

The 76ers retained an independent law firm to determine whether Colangelo used the Twitter accounts. The situation could overshadow Philadelphia’s efforts this summer to land any of the top players who will be free agents – a list that includes LeBron James, who’s appearing in the NBA Finals for the eighth consecutive year.

Among the targets of harsh or critical comments on those Twitter accounts: Philadelphia players Joel Embiid and Markelle Fultz, former 76ers general manager Sam Hinkie, Toronto Raptors executive Masai Ujiri and former Sixers players Jahlil Okafor and Nerlens Noel. Embiid has said he does not believe that Colangelo wrote the tweets, dismissing the story as ”insane.”

Colangelo has acknowledged using one of the accounts to monitor NBA happenings.

”Let’s find out what’s going on [url=http://www.billsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-russell-bodine-jersey]http://www.billsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-russell-bodine-jersey[/url] ,” Silver said. ”We have to separate the chatter and sort of what either fans or frankly the media are saying from the facts. The first thing we have to do here is determine what the actual facts are in this circumstance.”

Silver touched on many other topics in his annual address, including:

SPORTS BETTING

There will be wagering on Game 3 of the NBA Finals, at least in Delaware casinos.

That state’s officials have announced that full-scale sports betting will begin there at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday , one day before the series between Golden State and Cleveland shifts to the Cavaliers‘ home floor.

Delaware is the first state to take advantage of a recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling that now permits states to allow sports wagering. Delaware has been permitted to offer parlay wagers on NFL games since 2009, and has had sports betting legislation on its books for nearly a decade. Other states are trying to follow suit quickly.

The NBA has told states it is seeking a 1 percent cut of betting, which it is calling an ”integrity fee” to help offset the costs of enforcement incurred by the league office and also to serve as a royalty.

”The real issue as we move to new jurisdictions that are legalizing sports betting is access to information,” Silver said. ”That’s one of the things we have sought in model legislation … and so what we can do is going to depend in large part on the quality of the information we can get from these states.”

Silver said the NBA game is the league’s ”intellectual property, and we think we should be compensated for it.”

STERLING BROWN

Silver has seen the footage of police using a Taser on Milwaukee guard Sterling Brown during an incident outside a Walgreens store in January, one that started over a parking violation.

”I saw the video for the first time when the public saw it,” Silver said. ”It’s horrific. For any of us, regardless of the fact that he’s an NBA player [url=http://www.authenticsbuffalobills.com/cheap-russell-bodine-jersey]Russell Bodine Color Rush Jersey[/url] , it was difficult to watch. It’s painful.”

An officer approached Brown for illegal parking, called for backup and six squads responded. Silver said has also had conversations with the player’s father, Chris Brown, a Chicago police officer for many years.

”It’s a reality in our country right now that there’s a disconnect often between young people of color especially and police officers – incidentally black and white,” Silver said. ”And one of the things the league has undertaken, led in many ways by our players and by our leading players, has been defined ways to build bridges in communities to create dialogue directly between young people and police officers.”

Silver said some NBA teams have had meetings with police in various communities, trying to improve relations.

EXPANSION

Silver said there are no plans for expansion, though lauded the success of the NHL’s first-year Vegas Golden Knights – who are in the Stanley Cup final against the Washington Capitals.

He also congratulated Ted Leonsis, who owns both the Capitals and the NBA’s Wizards.

”Invariably, it’s only natural for any business to grow and expand at some point [url=http://www.cowboysauthorizedshops.com/authentic-michael-gallup-jersey]http://www.cowboysauthorizedshops.com/authentic-michael-gallup-jersey[/url] ,” Silver said.



When Mike Trout gets on a power-hitting hot streak like this, it’s hard for other teams to watch – and match.

The Seattle Mariners have been doing just fine the past two games going toe-to-toe with the Los Angeles Angels slugger.

Mitch Haniger and Ryon Healy each homered twice as the first-place Mariners shook off two homers by Trout for the second consecutive night, beating the Angels 6-3 on Tuesday.

Trout took sole possession of the major league lead with 23 home runs. He also hit a pair in the Angels’ 5-3 loss Monday and has 20 career homers at Safeco Field, most in any visiting ballpark.

Mike Leake (7-3) allowed one run in six innings for Seattle, which has won three consecutive games and 10 of 12 overall to remain a half-game ahead of Houston atop the AL West.

Edwin Diaz worked the ninth for his big league-best 25th save in 28 tries.

”Everything is kind of clicking,” Haniger said.

Yes, fly balls were leaving the ballpark with ease Tuesday, and the Mariners are 5-0 when they hit four or more home runs in a game.

But the play that had everyone talking was Haniger’s throw from right field to cut down Luis Valbuena at second base leading off the sixth.

Haniger had just given Seattle a 3-1 lead in the fifth with a two-run homer when Valbuena roped a line drive down the right-field line. By the time Haniger was able to get to it, Valbuena was on his way to second base for what appeared to be a double.

”Luckily, I just got a really good bounce off the bottom of the wall,” Haniger said. ”Usually you just come up firing [url=http://www.authenticsatlantafalcons.com/cheap-justin-bethel-jersey]Justin Bethel Color Rush Jersey[/url] , and try and keep your throw low.”

Haniger’s throw from deep in the corner was high, but traveled more than 240 feet right into the glove of shortstop Jean Segura, who made a no-look, backhand tag on Valbuena as he slid into the bag.

”(Haniger) is a five-tool player,” Mariners manager Scott Servais said.

Healy homered in the sixth to extend the lead to 4-1.

Trout answered with his second of the game in the seventh, a two-run drive that hit the scoreboard in left-center to cut it to 4-3.

In two games, Trout has accounted for five of his team’s six runs on four homers.

”One guy can’t carry you,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. ”Mike is swinging the bat very well, but we need some of our other guys to start to get into the game.”

Seattle added insurance runs on Segura’s RBI double in the seventh and Healy’s leadoff homer in the eighth.

Haniger lined an opposite-field solo shot off Jaime Barria (5-2) in the first to give the Mariners a 1-0 lead. Trout tied it with his homer in the fifth off Leake.

That was the only run permitted by Leake, who gave up four hits while striking out four. It was his 10th win with the Mariners since they acquired him from St. Louis on Aug. 30 last year for infielder Rayder Ascanio.

”It’s tough. We’re playing good games,” Trout said. ”They’re hitting the ball well and they’re pitching good. We’ve just got to keep battling. It’s a long season.”

THEY COME IN THREES

Segura had his 12th three-hit game Monday [url=http://www.atlantabravesteamshop.com/authentic-ronald-acuna-jr.-jersey]Ronald Acuna Jr. Atlanta Braves Jersey[/url] , most in the majors, and is on pace for 30 this season – which has been done only 14 times. George Sisler holds the single-season record of 41 set in 1920.

ROSTER RESHUFFLING

Angels: Barria was recalled from the minors to make the start, and Los Angeles optioned reliever Eduardo Paredes to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Mariners: To complete a trade with Boston for left-hander Roenis Elias, Seattle sent outfielder Eric Filia to the Red Sox. Filia began the season serving a 50-game suspension. He was hitting .426 at Double-A Arkansas.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Angels: 1B Jefry Marte (sprained left wrist) was in a splint after being placed on the 10-day disabled list. Scioscia said Marte will be re-evaluated later this week in Southern California. INF David Fletcher was promoted from Triple-A Salt Lake to replace Marte. … SS Andrelton Simmons (ankle) did some light baseball activities but is not running yet. … After fouling a ball off his foot Monday, Trout started in center field as usual. … Relief pitcher Blake Wood (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day DL after Tommy John surgery.

Mariners: Right-handed reliever Nick Vincent (groin) had to cut a 25-pitch bullpen session short Monday and likely won’t attempt another one until this weekend at the earliest. … Servais said reliever Juan Nicasio (right knee) felt better and some of the swelling in his knee has subsided. Nicasio has yet to throw off a mound. … Right-hander Dan Altavilla (elbow) isn’t close to returning to baseball activity, Servais said.

UP NEXT

Angels: Right-hander Garrett Richards (4-4, 3.26 ERA) shut out the Mariners for 6 2/3 innings on May 4 for his fourth win. He hasn’t won since. After dropping three consecutive decisions to close out May, Richards has given up just two runs in the past 12 1/3 innings.

Mariners: Left-hander Marco Gonzales (7-3, 3.28 ERA) has allowed just three earned runs in his past five starts, a span of 33 1/3 innings. He has gone at least six innings in eight of his last nine starts.
