BSNF PRESENTA SUS PLANES PARA EL PRÓXIMO AÑO


COMUNICADO DE PRENSA
19 de septiembre 2020
Luis G. Miranda Ramos, Director General del Baloncesto Superior Nacional Femenino (BSNF), presentó oficialmente el plan de trabajo para el venidero año 2021 ante la Junta de Directores del organismo.

Dicho plan de trabajo descarta la idea de llevar a cabo un torneo en los primeros meses del nuevo año. 

“La idea de celebrar un torneo en enero era que el mismo sirviera como preparación para las competencias internacionales de nuestra Selección. Después del último anuncio que realizamos, FIBA colocó el Centrobasket femenino en la fecha del 31 de enero al 8 de febrero. Por tal, tuvimos que descartar poder jugar en esa fecha”, explicó Miranda Ramos. “Al mismo tiempo, todavía no se cuenta con una vacuna para el Covid-19, el Gobierno sigue sin permitir las competencias deportivas y no hay garantías de poder celebrar el torneo como era costumbre antes de esta pandemia”.

Ahora, la Liga se prepara para jugar en el mes de agosto. Del 25 de julio al 9 de agosto, la Selección estará participando en los Juegos Olímpicos, y una semana después estaría comenzando la campaña 2021 del BSNF.

EN AGENDA UNA LIGA DE VERANO

De estar controlado el virus, el plan de trabajo contempla realizar una liga de verano en los meses de junio y julio para las jugadoras que participen en los sorteos de Nuevo Ingreso y No Reservadas. 

“Esperamos celebrar el sorteo anual de jugadoras en el mes de junio. De ahí pasaríamos a la liga de verano, donde las jugadoras que fueron escogidas y aquellas que queden libres podrán demostrar sus habilidades para lograr ser contratadas por los equipos”, abundó. 

La temporada 2021 del BSNF, que a la fecha contaría con la participación de siete franquicias (Carolina, Santurce, Morovis, Manatí, Moca, Aguada y Mayagüez), estaría culminando a finales de octubre.

Miranda no descartó que, de seguir la crisis causada por el Covid, en el 2021 se analice la posibilidad de crear una burbuja para el BSNF, pero es una opción muy onerosa que está fuera del alcance de la Liga en estos momentos.

Today the NBA and ESPN released two spots for the 2020 NBA Finals presented by YouTube TV on ABC featuring Grammy®-nominated, multi-platinum artist Big Sean and his new hit single “Don Life” as the soundtrack for both. 

 

  • The NBA’s :30 spot is the culmination of the most unique seasons in the history of sports and concludes its “Whole New Game” campaign for the NBA Restart. It will debut during Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals between the Los Angeles Lakers and Denver Nuggets tomorrow, Sept. 19 at 7:30 p.m. ET on TNT. While acknowledging the challenging nature of this season, the spot celebrates the incredible plays, buzzer beaters and overtime triumphs of the 2020 NBA Playoffs.

 

  • ESPN’s new NBA Finals anthem debuts today during Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Boston Celtics and the Miami Heat at 8:30 p.m. ET. The :30 anthem serves as the next installment under ESPN’s “Rise Together” post-season creative platform that was unveiled at the beginning of the NBA Playoffs. It embraces and empowers the spirit of the community rising up throughout this unprecedented time and serves as a reflection of the extraordinary journey of this season and beyond – from the loss of legends to battling both a global pandemic and social injustice.

 

Detroit native and Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum artist, Big Sean released his fifth studio album, “Detroit 2” via G.O.O.D. Music/Def Jam Recordings on Sept. 4, opening at No. 1 on the Billboard Charts. Fans can also look for Big Sean to join Game 1 of the NBA Finals as a virtual fan for the official celebrity and influencer virtual night.

Milwaukee’s Giannis Antetokounmpo wins 2019-20 Kia NBA Most Valuable Player Award

Antetokounmpo is Third Player to win MVP and Defensive Player of the Year in Same Season

NEW YORK, United States of America, September 18, 2020/ -- Greek Forward Becomes Third Player to Win Multiple MVP Awards by Age 25; Antetokounmpo is Third Player to Win MVP and Defensive Player of the Year in Same Season

Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo has been named the 2019-20 Kia NBA (www.NBA.com) Most Valuable Player, the NBA announced today.

This is the second straight Kia NBA Most Valuable Player Award for Antetokounmpo, who becomes the 12th player to earn the honor in consecutive seasons. A native of Greece, Antetokounmpo is the first player from Europe to be selected as the NBA MVP more than once. Antetokounmpo, 25, also joins Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and LeBron James as the only players to win multiple NBA MVP awards by the age of 25.

Antetokounmpo was previously named the 2019-20 Kia NBA Defensive Player of the Year. He joins Michael Jordan (1987-88) and Hakeem Olajuwon (1993-94) as the only players to be selected as the Kia NBA Most Valuable Player and the Kia NBA Defensive Player of the Year in the same season. (The NBA Defensive Player of the Year Award was first presented in the 1982-83 season.)

Antetokounmpo received 85 of 101 first-place votes and earned 962 total points from a global panel of 100 sportswriters and broadcasters as well as the Kia NBA Most Valuable Player Award fan vote. Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James received the other 16 first-place votes and finished in second place with 753 points. Houston Rockets guard James Harden (367 points) finished in third place, followed by Dallas Mavericks guard Luka Dončić (200 points) in fourth place and LA Clippers forward Kawhi Leonard (168 points) in fifth place.

Players received 10 points for each first-place vote, seven points for each second-place vote, five points for each third-place vote, three points for each fourth-place vote and one point for each fifth-place vote. The voting was conducted based on regular-season games played through March 11. The seeding games, which were played July 30 – Aug. 14 as part of the season restart, did not count toward voting for the Kia NBA Most Valuable Player Award or the league’s other traditional end-of-season awards.

In games played through March 11, Antetokounmpo averaged 29.6 points, 13.7 rebounds, 5.8 assists, 1.04 steals and 1.02 blocks in 30.9 minutes in 57 games. During that time, he ranked third in the NBA in both scoring average and rebounding average. Antetokounmpo also shot 54.7 percent from the field and sank 83 three-pointers, which is 31 more threes than he made in any of his previous six seasons.

Behind Antetokounmpo, Milwaukee posted an NBA-leading 53-12 record in games played through March 11, a mark that included an 18-game winning streak Nov. 10 – Dec. 14. The four-time NBA All-Star selection helped the Bucks excel on both ends of the court as they led the league in net rating (outscoring opponents by 10.7 points per 100 possessions), scoring offense (118.6 ppg) and defensive rating (101.6 points allowed per 100 possessions) in their first 65 games of the season.

Antetokounmpo was honored as the Kia NBA Eastern Conference Player of the Month for October/November, December and January, in addition to being named the NBA Eastern Conference Player of the Week four times. He was also voted as a starter to the NBA All-Star Game for the fourth consecutive season, serving as a team captain for the second year in a row.

Among Antetokounmpo’s other accomplishments in games played through March 11:

  • Led the NBA in double-doubles with 52.
  • Recorded four triple-doubles.
  • Posted 17 games with at least 30 points and 15 rebounds – 14 more than any other player.
  • Grabbed 20 rebounds in a game twice.
  • Scored 50 points against the Utah Jazz on Nov. 25.

Antetokounmpo receives the Maurice Podoloff Trophy as the winner of the 2019-20 Kia NBA MVP Award. Podoloff served as the NBA’s first commissioner from 1946 until his retirement in 1963.

For the 11th consecutive season, the NBA and Kia Motors America (KMA) gave fans the opportunity to vote for the Kia NBA Most Valuable Player Award by voting online or by Twitter. The fan vote counted as one vote toward determining the winner.

The voting results for the 2019-20 Kia NBA Most Valuable Player Award are below. The balloting was tabulated by the independent accounting firm Ernst & Young LLP. Complete ballots for each voter will be posted at pr.nba.com on Saturday, Sept. 19

NEW YORK, Sept. 16, 2020 – Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo and Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James have been unanimously selected to the 2019-20 All-NBA First Team, the NBA announced today.

 

James has set the NBA record with his 16th All-NBA Team selection, which includes a record 13 selections to the First Team, two to the Second Team and one to the Third Team.  He passed 15-time All-NBA Team selections Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Kobe Bryant and Tim Duncan.       

 

Antetokounmpo, the 2019-20 Kia NBA Defensive Player of the Year, and James both received All-NBA First Team votes on all 100 ballots to finish with 500 points each.  Named to the All-NBA Team for the fourth time, Antetokounmpo has earned his second First Team honor.

 

The 2019-20 All-NBA First Team also features Houston Rockets guard James Harden (474 points; 89 First Team votes), Lakers forward-center Anthony Davis (455 points; 79 First Team votes) and Dallas Mavericks guard Luka Dončić (416 points; 59 First Team votes).

 

Harden and Davis have been voted to the All-NBA First Team for the sixth and fourth time, respectively.  Dončić is making his All-NBA Team debut in his second season.  He is the first player selected to the All-NBA First Team in either his first or second season since Duncan in 1998-99.  Dončić, 21, also becomes the sixth player named to the All-NBA First Team at age 21 or younger, joining Kevin Durant (2009-10), James (2005-06), Duncan (1997-98), Rick Barry (1965-66) and Max Zaslofsky (1946-47).

 

The 2019-20 All-NBA Second Team consists of LA Clippers forward Kawhi Leonard (372 points), Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokić (311), Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard (284), Oklahoma City Thunder guard Chris Paul (199) and Toronto Raptors forward Pascal Siakam (168).

 

The 2019-20 All-NBA Third Team is composed of Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum (153 points), Miami Heat forward Jimmy Butler (147), Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert (110), Philadelphia 76ers guard Ben Simmons (61) and Rockets guard Russell Westbrook (56).

 

Siakam, Tatum and Simmons join Dončić as first-time selections to the All-NBA Team.  Paul and Westbrook have been voted to the All-NBA Team for the ninth time each.  Lillard and Leonard have earned their fifth and fourth All-NBA Team selections, respectively.  This marks the third All-NBA Team honor for both Butler and Gobert and the second for Jokić.    

 

The All-NBA Team was selected by a global panel of 100 sportswriters and broadcasters.  Players were awarded five points for each vote to the All-NBA First Team, three points for each vote to the Second Team and one point for each vote to the Third Team.  Voters selected two guards, two forwards and one center for each team, choosing players at the position where they play regularly.  Players who received votes at multiple positions were slotted at the position where they received the most votes.

 

The voting was conducted based on regular-season games played through March 11.  The seeding games, which were played July 30 – Aug. 14 as part of the 2019-20 season restart, did not count toward voting for the All-NBA Team or the league’s other traditional end-of-season awards. 

 

The voting results for the 2019-20 All-NBA Team are below.  The balloting was tabulated by the independent accounting firm Ernst & Young LLP.  Complete ballots for each voter will be posted at pr.nba.com after the announcement of all end-of-season awards.

KIA NBA ROOKIE OF THE YEAR JA MORANT

LEADS 2019-20 NBA ALL-ROOKIE FIRST TEAM

 

– NBA All-Rookie First Team: Morant, Kendrick Nunn,
Brandon Clarke, Zion Williamson and Eric Paschall 

 

– NBA All-Rookie Second Team: Tyler Herro, Terence Davis II,
Coby White, P.J. Washington Jr. and Rui Hachimura 

 

NEW YORK, Sept. 15, 2020 – Memphis Grizzlies guard Ja Morant, the 2019-20 Kia NBA Rookie of the Year, has been unanimously selected to the 2019-20 NBA All-Rookie First Team, the NBA announced today.  As the lone unanimous selection, Morant received NBA All-Rookie First Team votes on all 100 ballots from a global panel of sportswriters and broadcasters.

 

Joining Morant (200 points) on the 2019-20 NBA All-Rookie First Team are Miami Heat guard Kendrick Nunn (197 points; 98 First Team votes), Grizzlies forward Brandon Clarke (189 points; 92 First Team votes), New Orleans Pelicans forward Zion Williamson (176 points; 87 First Team votes) and Golden State Warriors forward Eric Paschall (116 points; 28 First Team votes). 

 

With the selection of Morant and Clarke, the Grizzlies have multiple players on the NBA All-Rookie First Team for the first time since the 2001-02 season (Pau Gasol and Shane Battier).  Nunn, who played in the NBA G League last season, is the first Heat player named to the NBA All-Rookie First Team since the 2008-09 season (Michael Beasley).  Williamson and Paschall complete the NBA All-Rookie First Team as the first and 41st overall picks in NBA Draft 2019 presented by State Farm, respectively.     

 

The 2019-20 NBA All-Rookie Second Team consists of Heat guard Tyler Herro (115 points), Toronto Raptors guard Terence Davis II (96), Chicago Bulls guard Coby White (90), Charlotte Hornets forward P.J. Washington Jr. (88) and Washington Wizards forward Rui Hachimura (74).

 

The media panel selected five players for the NBA All-Rookie First Team and five players for the NBA All-Rookie Second Team at any position.  Players received two points for each First Team vote and one point for each Second Team vote.

 

The voting was conducted based on regular-season games played through March 11.  The seeding games, which were played July 30 – Aug. 14 as part of the 2019-20 season restart, did not count toward voting for the NBA All-Rookie Team or the league’s other traditional end-of-season awards.

 

The voting results for the 2019-20 NBA All-Rookie Team are below.  The balloting was tabulated by the independent accounting firm of Ernst & Young LLP.  Complete ballots for each voter will be posted at pr.nba.com after the announcement of all end-of-season awards.
