Westbrook shines brightest of All Stars once more

Posted On May 26 2020 by

first_imgRussell Westbrook took a little bit of the focus away from West team-mate and retiring great Kobe Bryant’s final NBA All-Star Game appearance when the Oklahoma City point guard claimed MVP honours for a second straight year on Sunday.The 27-year-old Westbrook scored 31 points in the West’s 196-173 victory to become the first player to win solo back-to-back most valuable player awards in the 65-season history of the high-profile showcase event.Bob Pettit was named MVP for the 1958 game and shared the honour with Elgin Baylor in 1959.There was speculation that Bryant would be named MVP for sentimental reasons and East team leader Paul George made a case for himself with 41 points but Westbrook nailed a bunch of key three-pointers in the second half to lead the West to victory.“I didn’t know what was going to happen, man,” the shocked Thunder guard told reporters.“I was just sitting there and kind of talking and enjoying, and my name got called.“Any time you can be in the history books, it always means something. I’m just thankful to be able to play the game of basketball and be in a game like this is something that I never take for granted.”BONDING WITH BRYANTWestbrook, who scored 41 points to win MVP honours last year with a tally one point shy of Wilt Chamberlain’s All-Star Game record in 1962, admitted that it was special to play in Bryant’s final appearance.He also enjoyed being around the Los Angeles Lakers guard all weekend.“I think everybody in the whole arena, whole room, definitely aspired to see Kobe Bryant in his last game,” Westbrook added. “It’s just an honour and blessing to be able to be a part of it and kind of see him on his way out.“Being able to talk to him and get knowledge and just hear him talking about different things he’s done for himself, for the game, his family. It’s a great moment to be able to sit back and just chat with a guy like that.“You embrace all those moments.”For George, his performance also served notice that he has fully recovered from the compound fracture he suffered in his right leg during the American training camp for the 2014 FIBA World Cup 18 months ago.His nine three-pointers was an All-Star Game record.“It’s really special,” the Indiana Pacers forward said. “I had a hard-fought summer, hard-fought rehab year. It was just a very upward climb.“It took every day and really every moment of rehab to get through it. There were a lot of days where I felt I like I was down and out, but I just stayed with it.”last_img read more

California highways top worst roads list

Posted On Jan 6 2020 by

first_imgCalifornia’s drivers are stuck in some of the nation’s worst traffic with state highways that are so clogged, poorly paved and costly to maintain that they rank seventh-worst in the nation, according to a report to be released today. Perhaps coming as little surprise to motorists, the annual highway performance report by the Reason Foundation has consistently found California’s roads among the most miserable in the country. “There’s lots of traffic, relatively high costs of doing business and increasing truck traffic. And not much room for freeway expansion,” said study author David Hartgen, a retired professor of transportation studies at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. And that increasingly desperate need for roomier roadways – in already densely populated areas – is putting growing pressure on communities. Caltrans wants to widen freeways to the maximum extent possible. That means six lanes in each direction – like the San Diego (405) Freeway expansion under consideration now through the Sepulveda Pass, said Doug Failing, Caltrans director. Plans for that project include adding a northbound carpool lane and changing the width of lanes heading south to make room for one more. But the plans include wiping out up to 37 homes and businesses to make the extra room. And the use of eminent domain in doing so has some concerned. Opponents say they’re being forced out of their longtime neighborhoods and that adding a lane will only shave a few minutes off commuting times. “If you’re going to do this expansion that will save drivers eight minutes, do you really need to do this?” said Rev. Janet Bregar of Brentwood Glen’s Village Church, which is slated to be razed for the expansion. It’s unclear whether the region will see the use of more eminent domain to make room for road expansion, but Failing said it’s always a possibility. “We’re trying to find ways to use less eminent domain, because it is a last resort,” Failing said. “The last thing you want to do is take someone out of their house.” California has lagged on building roads for years because there was always the hope that people would switch to public transportation. But the dream has never taken off, said Peter Gordon, professor at USC’s School of Policy, Planning and Development. “It was kind of a dumb idea and it didn’t work,” Gordon said. “So here we are.” While taking 37 homes and businesses seems extreme, it’s far less than what has been done in previous situations. Thousands of homes and businesses were razed when freeways were first built in the region, said Martin Wachs, director of the Transportation, Space and Technology program at the Rand Corp. But ensuing community opposition has slowed freeway expansion as politicians and transportation officials are more reluctant to disrupt communities with eminent domain, Wachs said. Still, he said the trade off is that the area will see traffic congestion become progressively worse. “We have to choose between one or the other and increasingly we’re more willing to accept community as the priority,” Wachs said. “As a consequence, transportation systems get more congested.” To get Los Angeles moving in the right direction, tolls should be charged for driving on freeways, with prices varying by time of day, said Gordon. Gordon said such a concept would be a better use of roads and bring in money to build more. “We understand early bird specials and pricing that works with demand,” Gordon said. “But that’s not the way we run our roads, and that’s exactly the problem we’re whining about. “We created our own mess.” Even with the use of eminent domain, most transportation experts agree that simply building more lanes will not answer the region’s traffic woes. In the future, ramp meters on freeways and traffic signals that work together to move blocks of cars will be relied on more to keep people moving. Failing said the region needs a mass transit system that more people use. And the area needs clusters of housing and jobs around transit stations. “There’s a whole series of things we need to do,” Failing said. “Just building isn’t going to do it.” sue.doyle@dailynews.com (818) 713-3746 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
