I dont think Rick Carlisle is into acting. Hes into from corse178's blog

RECIFE, Brazil -- Andres Iniesta repeated several times that Spain deserved the 2-1 victory over Uruguay in their Confederations Cup opener. Tre Madden Jersey . The midfielder had only one quibble with the result Sunday. The game wasnt as close as the score made it look, and he said Spain should have had at least one more goal. "I think it was clear Spain was the undeniable winner, a deserved victory," Iniesta said. "It left a very good taste in our mouth. But we probably deserved another goal." Spain had 77 per cent of the possession in the first half, and 71 in the match -- and that tells plenty. Cesc Fabregas hit the post in the 10th minute, which is the near-goal Iniesta was probably talking about. The World Cup champions did get two first-half goals just after Fabregas miss -- one in the 20th from Pedro and another 12 minutes later by striker Roberto Soldado. Spain had a little luck with the first goal, which may have been heading wide when it took a huge deflection off Uruguay defender Diego Lugano to beat goalkeeper Fernando Muslera. The second was perfect finishing by Soldado after a cute reverse pass from Cesc Fabregas. Luis Suarez scored a consolation goal with a delicately curling free kick for Uruguay in the 88th. Spain is trying to win the only major trophy it lacks to go with a 2010 World Cup and two consecutive European championships. Coach Vicente del Bosque talked about the importance of a damp, quick pitch so that Spain could put on a show. It rained just before the match, and Spain did just that. "I think we took advantage in the first half, but dropped off a bit in the second," Del Bosque said. Uruguay barely touched the ball in the first 15 minutes as Spain linked dozens of touches together, eventually setting up Pedros goal. He scored from just outside the area as Lugano lunged trying to stop the shot -- and pushed it into the goal, instead. Soldados goal could have a lasting impact -- a clean finish when he was left alone in front of Muslera. The Valencia striker is Spains latest "No. 9," the true striker that Del Bosque has often shunned, playing an attacking midfield player instead. Soldado scored 24 goals in La Liga this season, surpassed only by the likes of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Radamel Falcao and Alvaro Negredo. Among the other strikers, Fernando Torres scored only eight in the Premier League this season for Chelsea, and David Villa managed only 10 with Barcelona. "First of all, to be among the 23 to be on the team is great," Soldado said. "But then to be a starter is a radical change. And then to score. Of course Im happy." Del Bosque also returned captain Iker Casillas to his spot in goal. Casillas had not played a competitive match in 4 1/2 months. He was dropped in December by then-Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho, and then broke his left hand in a match on Jan. 23. Even after it healed, Mourinho left him on the bench. Casillas had little to do for much of the time -- but was helpless against Suarezs free kick. Spain and South American champion Uruguay are viewed as the class teams of Group B -- Tahiti and Nigeria are the other teams -- and Spain clearly outclassed Uruguay with its usual domination of possession. "We know our next opponent (Tahiti) is a lesser team, but you have to play every match," Iniesta said. The second half was more of the same, but it turned more physical with the pro-Uruguay crowd often jeering Spains long spells of possession. Only after Suarezs late free kick did the game seem in doubt. Ethan Pocic Youth Jersey .C. -- Chris Thorburn thinks one of the reasons the Winnipeg Jets have been successful under new coach Paul Maurice is that theyre playing together as a team. Nazair Jones Womens Jersey . -- Charline Labonte couldnt have asked for a better homecoming. http://www.theseahawksauthenticonline.com/Bradley-McDougald-Jersey/ .com) - The Pittsburgh Penguins placed forward James Neal on injured reserve Tuesday. The sun will soon set on Metta World Peaces career as a professional basketball player. The former All-Star, formerly known as Ron Artest, spent the 2014-15 season out of the NBA before returning to the Los Angeles Lakers as a rarely used reserve.World Peace, 37, remains focused on helping the Lakers however he can, but he also plans to be ready for the future after retiring as an NBA player.Thats part of the reason World Peace was one of several NBA players who starred in The 5th Quarter, a mockumentary series about fictional sports stories available on the streaming video site go90.com. World Peace co-wrote the episode in which he starred, helping come up with a fictional story about a relationship with a vision-impaired boy that inspired his name change.World Peace discussed his interests in acting, coaching and more in a recent conversation with ESPN.com.Tell me about your experience filming The 5th Quarter and working with producer OBB Pictures.Metta World Peace: It was a great opportunity to get back into acting and pursue my career in acting and entertainment. The 5th Quarter was an opportunity because it was a huge platform with go90. I thought it was a really good opportunity just for me to be on the big screen and get closer to the thing Ive always been interested in doing, which is feature films and sitcoms and stuff.Did you enjoy doing comedy?MWP: Comedy, drama, the genre doesnt matter. For me, as long as Im having fun, thats what is important. Comedy is great. People get a chance to laugh, and I love when people laugh.You mentioned acting aspirations. Is this something you want to do full time when you finish up with basketball?MWP: Not full time, but I want to do a lot of it, though. If I need a month to shoot a movie, I can do that. Its all about the opportunities that are presented. I dont look at it as full time. I look at it as fun.What interests you about acting?MWP: Its an easy decision to want to be an actor. Any childs dream is to be on TV. Now that Im older, its something that still interests me. ... Ill do any role. It doesnt really matter. As long as the production is good and the writing is good, Im in.I understand youve also kind of dipped your toe in the coaching waters. Are you going to be the first coach/actor in the history of the NBA?MWP: Well, hmmm. I dont know, because I havent quit playing. Maybe there might be a coach out there right now who gets there before me, so Im not sure. But I definitely want to get into coaching one day.What makes you think coaching is a career path that would be a good fit for you?MWP: When you get a chance to be around something that youre going to watch on TV anyway, I mean, thats just a great opportunity. Im going to watch basketball regardless of whether I coach or watch it on TV. Same thing with boxing and same thing with football. When you get a chance to be up and close to it, when you get a chance to contribute, thats just whats really fun about it.Are you interested in coaching at the NBA leveel? Ive heard that you might actually want to coach high school ball. Nazair Jones Jersey. MWP: I did high schools [in 2014-15]. I was the assistant coach at Palisades High School [outside of Los Angeles], boys and girls. We actually won a championship. It really dont matter what level, but I definitely want to get into it. Preferably the ultimate goal is to be a professional head coach one day.Do you feel as if youre making the transition into coaching right now with your role with the Lakers?MWP: Not really. I dont like to jump the gun too much. I like to stay in the moment. Im just making sure Im ready to play. Im not thinking about coaching right now. Im just thinking about staying ready.Whats it like to play for a head coach who is younger than you and who came into the league when you were already established? You had four seasons of experience when Luke Walton was drafted.MWP: Its good. Luke had a nice career, a long career, won two championships. With that being said, I think that he transitioned well. He was a coach as a player anyway, so it only made sense for him to coach.The Lakers are winning more than a lot of people anticipated they would this early in the rebuilding process. Why do you think Walton has been able to reach guys like DAngelo Russell and some other young guys on that roster?MWP: A lot of the guys who said the Lakers were not going to win, those guys have never been champions. They never played. Luke is a champion. If youve never been a champion, you dont know what it takes. Luke knows what it takes. Thats why a lot of the guys that are saying the Lakers wont do anything, they dont really understand. Luke knows what it takes to win.What makes him successful as a head coach?MWP: His will and his heart. A lot of people dont have that will to get him over the top. Luke is constantly teaching. Were always getting better every single day. I just want to learn more and more. Luke is teaching me a lot also. ... Im still learning about cutting, Im learning about timing. Its been great for me to learn from such a great coach like Luke. Hes definitely going to be in the Hall of Fame. I can see him in the Hall of Fame, absolutely, one day.You mentioned there might be a guy who beats you to the coach/actor category. Luke Walton seems like a pretty cool dude, and hes there in Hollywood. Do you think he has acting potential?MWP: Youd have to ask him. I dont even know if he wants to do Hollywood. I know hes really focused on coaching.What about Rick Carlisle? You played for him in Indiana. Could you see maybe Carlisle teaming up with Jim Carrey?MWP: I dont think Rick Carlisle is into acting. Hes into coaching. Rick Carlisle is an Xs and Os guy, but hes the type to tell jokes when nobody else wants to tell jokes. Or maybe everybody else wants to tell jokes, and hes not ready to tell jokes. But I definitely dont think hes into acting. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ChinaCheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
