Kawakami: Klay Thompson’s immortal Game 6 vs. OKC was one year ago, and it changed everything

After three games were called off while players used their platform to call attention to racial injustice, the question is whether more postponements or a wider boycott in baseball are possible. The Brewers were the first team to decide not to take the field as a protest over the shooting by police of Jacob Blake, a Black man, in the team’s home state of Wisconsin. Masahiro Tanaka was dominant, allowing only three hits in five scoreless innings as he left the second game with a lead. Green allowed an infield single to Dansby Swanson with two outs in the sixth before giving up Freeman’s homer, an opposite-field shot over the foot mark in left field. Sports Home. All Scores. Mid 8.

A half-concession over here, a partial-unclenching over there, and this whole 49ers-Colin Kaepernick impasse could be settled in a flash. No, by all indications, Kaepernick will remain a 49er — unhappily and uncertainly — possibly up to the April draft, and who knows maybe even beyond that. If common sense prevailed good luck with that! More likely, Denver chief John Elway is offering something from the draft, basically daring the 49ers to keep their disgruntled QB into the minicamps and workouts.

His first choice has always been Denver, the defending Super Bowl champion coincidentally with a vacancy at QB. But the actual deadline is 1 p. Pacific time Thursday because all the paperwork must be filed and processed by the league before the close of business in order to remove him from the roster by Friday morning. Actually, York is in control right now because the 49ers reportedly have all but accepted that they will keep Kaepernick on the roster past the deadline and therefore guarantee his salary.

Kaepernick is still recovering from multiple surgeries and likely would not pass a physical Thursday. One point: These things are negotiable, and if the 49ers decide to surrender and release Kaepernick by 1 p. As long as York and general manager Trent Baalke refuse to budge on their trade demands, everything now points to further delays and to more frustration.

There is no rush for Denver to up its bid right now; why not wait it out to see if the 49ers will flinch?

Governor Ige approves Mayor Kawakami’s request to safely reopen bars and bar top services

Kawakami had an interesting experience with 49ers owner Jed York in , an experience he had never really talked about publicly until recently. The 49ers were in the process of getting their new stadium built, and because getting a stadium built isn’t an easy thing to do in California, Kawakami didn’t think there was any way the building would be done by the target date. I stand by my offer: If 49ers build a Santa Clara stadium by Sept.

Kawakami thought the stadium would be done in and was willing to buy York lunch if he was wrong. Now, let’s fast forward to

By San Jose Mercury News and Tim Kawakami | “I told Mark it was his most important coaching victory to date,” Lacob said via email Monday.

Nothing is too far for him, nothing is too much, nothing is out of reach, which Curry is proving every game now. He carried the Warriors into the Western Conference finals Friday; he closed out the Memphis Grizzlies with one incredible swish; now the Warriors are only eight victories away from a title. But it was one super-sized 3-pointer that underlined everything and spelled out exactly where Curry is headed. It came in the last second of the third quarter, with Memphis rallying back and the FedEx Forum crowd roaring.

They make those kind of shots. Curry gathered the ball with about a second left, took one calm step, fired the ball with a big flick of his wrists, the buzzer sounded in midflight … and swish. But they tried to get back into it. They fight till the end. And it did somehow. Put the Curry shot right there. Mainly, because it seemed so natural and so essentially, historically Curry.

Also: He might do it a few more times — or something like it — in his career. Or even in these playoffs.

Would that do? The sight of Hernandez leaping from the mound and lifting his foundering franchise for a day was delightful. It brought home thoughts that a game like this had been inevitable for someone so talented, writes Steve Kelley in The Seattle Times. Sure, perfect games now seem to pop up so frequently you might use them as reminders to change the oil in your car, as Tim Brown writes on Yahoo.

The problem is, there is no Hernandez-punctuated formula for putting belief back together. He also spread another layer of doubt over every athlete, put another crimp in our ability to believe what we see.

The overwhelming story of the NBA season has been the Golden State Warriors’ historic play and, as a result, the chase of the Chicago Bulls’ regular-season record. At , the Warriors are actually one game ahead of the Bulls, who were at this point in their season. The Warriors simply have to go a win pace the rest of the way to match the Bulls’ record, and roughly a win pace to eclipse it by one game. It’s certainly difficult, though not impossible. The Warriors are currently on pace for about 75 wins, so the record is obviously reachable.

The new editor-in-chief of the Bay Area edition, Tim Kawakami, announced his departure from the San Jose Mercury News in early July and.

And finally, in the wee hours of this chaotic and cathartic day, the 49ers circled back and beat the Patriots on Sunday, anyway. Through the rain, the sleet, the fumbles, and an epic 49ers second-half collapse, through everything. They did all this, survived the panic and near-humiliation, and came out the other side as legitimate Super Bowl favorites. What a game, though it actually seemed like four or five games, with about 10 different climactic endings.

Coach Jim Harbaugh, his voice frayed by the cold and the rampaging emotions, lauded his players for handling the pressures of such a giant test. But we made more. The 49ers defense turned over Tom Brady, their offense marched down the field, and they had a young quarterback who survived a bout of the dropsies to coolly lead them to a lead. Nobody expected him to do that — they probably expected him to go into the tank.

But he stayed poised.


Jim Harbaugh left and Trent Baalke have had an interesting professional relationship. The news last week that the Cleveland Browns tried to acquire San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh via trade certainly set off a lot of fire alarms at the scouting combine and throughout the NFL. But if you’ve kept up on the recent history between Harbaugh and general manager Trent Baalke, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that another team saw a possible opportunity to swoop in and take a coach who’s led his team to the last three NFC Championship Games and one Super Bowl.

It’s no surprise to anyone who’s interacted with him that Harbaugh’s personality can be grating at times. He’s a great coach, and a proven winner wherever he’s been, but he does tend to do things his own way which is both good and bad , and reports of tension between Harbaugh and Baalke have been out there for the last few months. In December, Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News detailed a relationship that occasionally leaked into the public eye, when Harbaugh would tout specific players to the media as future 49ers , and then, for whatever reason, the team i.

Michigan opens spring practice next month. He was asked if he has moved past the tough losses, including a double-overtime loss to Ohio State to end the regular season. Jim Harbaugh: Paul Finebaum wants to see me fail. Glad we lost them. Maybe that will make us better. Maybe that will be the thing that will push us and motivate us to do a better job as coaches and players. We lost three out of our last four games. That has really heated the waters here in our winter conditioning and it will for spring practice as well.

We came up short. Lost three out of our last four games and we actually have to get a lot better. Harbaugh was asked if his two seasons coaching his alma mater have been what he expected. Just unbelievable satisfaction of my 8-year-old daughter on a swim team. I take her to practice. We have practice today.

Or to put it practically: If the Warriors hit the All-Star break with a record by beating Phoenix Wednesday, they will be on a direct path to win at least 72 games this season. In fact, over their last 82 regular-season games dating to February , the Warriors are … Yes, the Warriors are making the championship issue just one piece of their epic journey through the record books, and that is saying something only a handful of NBA teams have ever done.

We know the Warriors are the best team in the league in this era; the question is how this Warriors edition will measure against every great team in the history of the league.
