- 49ers’ Trent Brown needs to watch his weight
By Eric Branch - Tuesday Aug 8, 2017
Kyle Shanahan values movement skills more than mass in his offensive linemen, which means the 49ers’ head coach initially had serious doubts about the condominium-size right tackle he inherited.The human house is Trent Brown, who is listed at 6-foot-8 and 355 pounds, but reported for the offseason program in April well north of that weight.The athletic linemen Shanahan has favored in an offense that features a steady diet of outside-zone runs are Lilliputian compared with Brown.In his nine seasons as an offensive coordinator, Shanahan’s five primary right tackles had an average weight of 311 pounds.The past two seasons, with the Falcons, 300-pound right tackle Ryan Schraeder started all 32 games.In April, when Brown reported out of shape, the 49ers did purchase insurance by signing former Seattle tackle Garry Gilliam, 26, who has 30 career starts.[...] Brown has since slimmed down and he reported for training camp under 358 pounds, the target weight the team set for him.The fact that Brown reported out of shape for the second straight season is evidence that he has yet to fully incorporate elite intangibles with his All-Pro natural gifts.[...] Denver’s Von Miller, one of the league’s best pass-rushers, termed Brown one of the NFL’s best offensive tackles after tangling with Brown in two joint practices.[...] Brown’s spotty work ethic helps explain why he started just 11 of 23 games at Florida and was a seventh-round pick in 2015.In June, during an interview on PFT Live, general manager John Lynch said Brown had a great NFL future, as long as he controlled his weight and was “accountable to us and his teammates.”Outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil, 33, who ranks seventh among active players in sacks, offered a familiar quote when asked about Brown.Brown is certainly not the poster boy for his scheme, but Shanahan isn’t ready to dismiss a player with his ability.Kyle Shanahan had five primary right tackles in his nine seasons as an offensive coordinator and all were considerably lighter than Trent Brown, who is listed at 6-foot-8 and 355 pounds:
- Gilroy’s Robert Guerrero looks to regain winning form
By Vic Tafur - Thursday Jul 13, 2017
[...] the Gilroy boxer is 34 years old and the former four-division, six-time world champ hasn’t been hard to miss his past six fights.Three of those four losses were to undefeated fighters, and Guerrero (33-5-1, 18 knockouts) faces a fourth Saturday night, when he walks into the ring to face Omar Figueroa Jr. in Uniondale, N.Y.The 10-round welterweight fight will be on Fox Sports 1.Figueroa watched Guerrero’s losses to champs Floyd Mayweather Jr., Keith Thurman and Danny Garcia, and says the southpaw has his full respect.“You develop that kamikaze mentality,” Figueroa (26-0-1, 18 KOs) said in a conference call.“These are two guys that need this win and two guys that are going to throw down really, really hard,” promoter Lou DiBella said.Frankly, Robert Guerrero’s never done anything his whole career but throw down.Unfornately, Guerrero has become an opponent in recent years, a famous name that promoters use to sell tickets and beef up younger fighters’ resumes and street cred.“When they start calling you the gatekeeper, that (means) you’re an opponent, pretty much, for the guy to make that next step,” Guerrero said.[...] it comes down to lack of preparation and not being 100 percent prepared like I should, listening to my father (trainer Ruben) in the ring, what to do and it comes down to actions speak louder than words.When Guerrero moved up to 147 pounds and outpunched Selcuk Aydin in 2012, Guerrero got the idea that he could trade punches with bigger fighters.Vic Tafur is a San Francisco Chronicle staff writer.
- As he leaves for Paris, NY fashion world fetes Thom Browne
By JOCELYN NOVECK, AP National Writer - Tuesday Sep 5, 2017
NEW YORK (AP) — Twice a year, Fashion Week crowds in New York cram into the lobby of a Chelsea gallery, waiting patiently to descend a staircase and see what bizarre, fantastical, endlessly inventive universe Thom Browne has created for his womenswear show — an otherworldly experience akin to getting lost on the set of a Tim Burton film.Browne has led his guests into a dark and eerie cathedral, with real pews and crosses, candles and incense. He's brought them to a wood-paneled operating room in an 18th-century hospital. He's created a dreamy winterscape in an urban park in shade of gray, and an eye-popping, multi-hued swimming pool with bathing beauties from another dimension.
- Lenny Dykstra reads emotional Darren Daulton prison letter
By Thomas Lipe - Monday Aug 7, 2017
Darren Daulton’s death inspired an emotional Lenny Dykstra to share a story about the All-Star catcher that he had “never shared with anybody before.” Dykstra, the former Met and Daulton’s teammate on the Phillies from 1990-96, took to Facebook to mourn the loss of this friend. “Dutch, as we called him, was a warrior and a...
- With late father on mind, Jabari Brown chases NBA dream with Warriors
By Connor Letourneau - Monday Jul 10, 2017
David’s encouraging words kept Brown focused on the ultimate objective: a lengthy NBA career.“He’d help keep my mind in the right place,” said Brown, a shooting guard for his hometown Golden State Warriors’ Summer League team.Over the next 20 months, as Jabari began the nomadic life of an undrafted free agent, he was inspired by how his dad slogged through chemotherapy cycles without complaint.In that gymnasium at 2350 Broadway, David taught Jabari a pure shooting form: balanced frame, minimal follow-through, relaxed shoulders, spread fingers.Trips to Oracle Arena for Warriors games were spent discussing how Jabari could incorporate aspects of NBA greats’ playing styles.On Dec. 29, 2014, a day after he hit the go-ahead three-pointer in the closing minute of Missouri’s win at North Carolina State, Jabari returned to Oakland and learned his dad was in the hospital.In 19 games with the Lakers the following season, he averaged 11.9 points and shot 43.5 percent from three-point range.“The chance for him to come see me play meant a lot to me,” Jabari said.Because when he got sick, I wasn’t sure if he’d ever get to come see me play.
