(AP Photo/Jae C. Hong)New Orleans Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry didn’t mince his words Friday in declaring that star Anthony Davis won’t be traded, and he didn’t appreciate Lakers superstar LeBron James’s comments on the matter.“We’re not trading him,” Gentry told reporters at a morning shootaround before the Pelicans were due to take on the Lakers at Staples Center in Los Angeles on Friday night.ADVERTISEMENT And Gentry said James’s recent comments — saying it would be “amazing” to play alongside Davis — as tampering, defined by the NBA as attempting to entice a player under contract to negotiate with another team regarding his services.“It’s tampering,” Gentry said. “Why is it not tampering if players are saying it.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back Chriss“I thought if you talk about a player under contract, it was tampering.

Crawley thanked his supporters and said he had issued numerous times his apologies to Edwards, Cerritos residents and Donna Coomes, who had complained about a low-altitude Air Force jet flyover during the city’s Veterans Day celebration at the Civic Center. The e-mail reply told her to “get a backbone and stop your b—-ing,” and to “get your head out of your rectum.” Any possible recall effort is in the hands of the voters, Crawley said. “It’s not my intention to resign,” he continued, reading from a prepared statement. “I shall continue my remaining two years on council with every effort I have.” The District Attorney’s office on Feb. 9 decided not to prosecute the case, turning the issue over to “the voting populace in the City of Cerritos and any civil action that Mr. Edwards elects to pursue against Mr. Crawley.” “I hope it ends here, that we don’t drag this into something else and keep this wound open,” said Mayor Paul Bowlen. Residents with opposing views took the podium before a near-capacity crowd of residents, city commissioners, two councilmembers-elect and students from several Cerritos High School 12th grade civics classes. Randy Economy was among those who asked Crawley to step down. He told the embattled councilman that he should be a representative for the people. “Mr. Crawley, you are not that anymore,” Economy said. “You have changed.” Chris Tierheimer added that Crawley’s history of service to the city “is no longer relevant” in the wake of the incident, adding that the misconduct didn’t set a good example for students and the teaching profession.

CERRITOS – Four city council members Thursday night censured a colleague who impersonated another in a scathing Nov. 11 e-mail to a resident. The motion passed 4-0, with the councilman at the center of the issue, John Crawley, abstaining. “This is not a censure for just John Crawley; it is a censure for the five of us who sit here” and the city’s future leaders, said Councilman Jim Edwards. Edwards’ name was falsely used in the e-mail, found by the Cerritos Sheriff’s Station to have been sent from Crawley’s home America Online account. The vote came on the heels of a passionate public comment session, during which residents defended, chastised, and in a couple of instances, asked Crawley to resign.
Is Falcao back to his best? The former Manchester United and Chelsea loanee scored another goal in pre-season on Tuesday, in Monaco’s 3-1 defeat to Russian side Zenit.The 30-year-old, who concedes his time in England was ‘difficult’, has been on form ahead of the new campaign, following up his weekend brace with a header on Tuesday. It may not be the most glamorous of goals, but it is a sign the Colombian may well be back after a frustrating couple of seasons which followed a nasty injury which ruled him out of the World Cup in 2014.After the friendly, he told the Ligue 1 club’s website: “My experience in England was difficult but it served me well as a footballer and as a person. “I hope what I’ve learned will serve me now, here in Monaco. I’m very happy to be back in Monaco to play.“It’s interesting to see how the team progresses game after game. The sensations are good, I feel good. The only thing I need is to accumulate games and playing time. With the games, my body will quickly adapt to the rhythm of the competition.”See Falcao’s goal, below:RELATED: VIDEO: Radamel Falcao assists and scores against Lugano earlier in pre-season 1 Is Falcao back to his best?

Mark Hughes says QPR’s Julio Cesar is among the best goalkeepers he has ever seen.The Rangers boss, a former Manchester United colleague of Peter Schmeichel and international team-mate of Everton legend Neville Southall, believes Cesar is as good as them both in their prime.“Over the years I had the pleasure of playing with the likes of Schmeichel and Southall, and he’s right up there,” Hughes said.“It’s not only his ability as a keeper. His mentality in the dressing room is huge for us and that’s a benefit we’ll tap into.“He understands what it takes and he drives people around him. He inspires people with his manner and his presence.“He’s on a par with the top keepers in the world in my view.”Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
