Arvydas Sabonis on Russia: 'We will never be able to believe these liars ever again in our lives'

The legendary Lithuanian basketball player Arvydas Sabonis expressed his opinion as well. “I don’t communicate with Russians. I chatted with Alexander Volkov, other Ukrainians. They are all out of balance,” Sabonis told Rokas Pakenas of 15min.lt. “Propaganda did not begin yesterday. Everyone got used to living well. And when it’s good, it’s good – what to change. We will never be able to believe these liars ever again in our lives. Pigeons of peace… A country of peace! Is there such peace here? To bomb children and free people? No words. I have no desire to communicate with them.”

Tom Thibodeau feels no pressure with James Dolan expectations

On the heels of James Dolan publicly declaring his playoff expectations for this season, Knicks’ coach Tom Thibodeau said he doesn’t feel pressure to reach the owner’s goal. “I never feel pressure because I know what I put into each day,” Thibodeau said. “I think anybody who puts everything they have into each day, you never feel pressure.” Dolan told WFAN on Friday that he “fully expects” the Knicks to reach the playoffs and “that will definitely be a benchmark.” Left unsaid was what would occur if the Knicks fail, but coaches are often the first on the chopping block when an owner is displeased.
