. -- Al Jefferson had 30 points and 13 rebounds, Gerald Henderson added 17 points and eight rebounds and the Charlotte Bobcats blew past the Golden State Warriors 91-75 on Tuesday night in Kemba Walkers much-anticipated return. Walker finished with seven points, seven assists and six rebounds after missing the last seven games with a sprained left ankle. He played 33 minutes. The Bobcats controlled the game from the start, going ahead by 18 points late in the third quarter and 22 midway through the fourth. Charlotte, which shot 47.4 per cent, held the Warriors to a season-low 31.2 per cent shooting. Stephen Curry had 17 points and 11 assists against his hometown team, Klay Thompson scored 12 and Andrew Bogut grabbed 15 rebounds for the Warriors, who have been held below 38 per cent shooting in three of their past four games. The Warriors briefly gave their announced sellout crowd of 19,596 something to cheer for when Marreese Speights made a half-court heave as the third quarter expired to slice Charlottes lead 72-57. Any hope quickly faded when Anthony Tolliver hit a pair of 3-pointers to put the Bobcats up 78-60 lead with 9:51 remaining. The Bobcats closed out their road trip 3-1 and handed a streaky Golden State team another stinging setback. Warriors coach Mark Jackson publicly called out his team last month for playing down to their opponents too often this season, especially at home. Apparently, his players still havent received the message. The Bobcats (22-28) swept the season against the Warriors (29-20) after beating Golden State 115-111 in Charlotte on Dec. 9. And out West, they outhustled and outshot the Warriors from the start. Charlotte ran Golden States prolific shooters off the 3-point line, forcing them into difficult mid-range jumpers. The Bobcats were equally efficient on the offensive end, going ahead 26-13 after the first quarter. The Warriors simply looked lost and lethargic. They hovered just above 20 per cent shooting for most of the first half, and their usually loud crowd stayed mostly silent. The Bobcats went ahead 44-27 with 3:42 left in the second quarter and 51-39 at halftime. It was only the third time all season the Warriors had been held below 40 points in the first half. Golden State trimmed Charlottes lead to eight early in the third quarter on Thompsons 3-pointer. Bobcats coach Steve Clifford called timeout to regroup his players, who responded by building an 18-point lead before Speights hit a halfcourt shot as time expired to bring the Warriors within 72-57 entering the fourth. That was pretty much the only celebration Charlotte allowed. NOTES: The Warriors worst shooting performance before Tuesday was when they shot 35.5 per cent in a 105-83 loss at Houston on Dec. 6. ... Warriors backup centre Jermaine ONeal had nine points and eight rebounds in 16 minutes in his first game since Dec. 9 at Charlotte. He missed 26 games recovering from surgery on his right wrist. ... The Bobcats dont play again until hosting San Antonio on Saturday. ... The Warriors host the Chicago Bulls on Thursday night. http://www.cheapairmax2017uk.com/womens ... 2-500.html

. Jon Montgomerys gold medal in skeleton at the Whistler Sliding Centre and his subsequent auctioning off of a pitcher of beer in the village square elevated him to folk-hero status. MANCHESTER, England -- Alex Ferguson is retiring at the end of the season, bringing a close to a trophy-filled career of more than 26 years at Manchester United that established him as the most successful coach in British football history. "The decision to retire is one that I have thought a great deal about and one that I have not taken lightly," the 71-year-old Scotsman said in a statement on Wednesday. "It is the right time." The club, which is owned by the American Glazer family and listed on the New York Stock Exchange, did not immediately announce a successor, but will need to act swiftly to stave off any market uncertainty. Fergusons compatriot, Everton manager David Moyes, is out of contract at the end of the season and quickly emerged as the front-runner. During 11 years at Everton, Moyes has overseen impressive consistency on a limited budget, and has a long-standing friendship with Ferguson. "He is a first-class manager," Ferguson, who is being consulted on his successor, said of Moyes last year. Few managers at United -- or anywhere in global football -- will come close to matching Fergusons achievements. Since taking charge at Old Trafford in 1986, Ferguson has won a total of 38 trophies, including 13 Premier League championships, two Champions League titles and five FA Cups. "It was important to me to leave an organization in the strongest possible shape and I believe I have done so," Ferguson said. "The quality of this league winning squad, and the balance of ages within it, bodes well for continued success at the highest level whilst the structure of the youth setup will ensure that the long-term future of the club remains a bright one." Ferguson reversed a previous plan to retire at the end of the 2001-02 season. After United secured its latest Premier League title two weeks ago -- extending the clubs record English championship haul to 20 -- Ferguson declared that he had no retirement thoughts. But now he has just two more league matches left in charge. Uniteds last home game -- a chance for fans to pay an emotional farewell to Ferguson -- is against Swansea on May 12. United then travels to West Bromwich Albion a week later in the final match for the man who has turned the club into one of the worlds biggest sports powers "His drive, ambition, skill, passion and vision have not only shaped Manchester United, but in many ways the game of football as we now know it," Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore said. Ferguson has previously said only health problems would force him to relinquish the job, and it emerged over the weekend that he requires hip surgery. However, the retirement statement did not mention health issues. Ferguson will continue to loom large at United as he will remain as a club director and ambassador. "His contributions to Manchester United over the last 26 years have been extraordinary and, like all United fans, I want him to be a part of its future," joint chairman Avie Glazer said. Talk of Ferguson leaving first surfaced following the clubs golf day on Tuesday. When the official announcement came it prompted an outpouring of tributes from inside and outside the game. FIFA President Sepp Blatter said on Twitter that Fergusons "achievements in the game place him without doubt as one of the greats." UEFA President Michel Platini hailed Ferguson as a "true visionary." "His CV is almost unique in a results-based profession that normally focuses on short-term solutions rather than long-term vision," the former France star said. http://www.cheapairmax2017uk.com/wholes ... -pink.html
. The announcement even grabbed the British media spotlight from the buildup to the State Opening of Parliament, where Queen Elizabeth II, who knighted Ferguson in 1999, was setting out the governments planned legislation. Ferguson has played a high-profile role campaigning for the Labour Party. "Proud man. Great manager. Staunch Labour Party supporter," Labour Party leader Ed Miliband tweeted. "Sir Alex Ferguson will never be forgotten." Tributes crossed the political divide, with Sports Minister Hugh Robertson, a member of the Conservative Party, praising Ferguson for his "enthusiasm for our national game." Ferguson has defined the modern era of success at United, resuscitating the fortunes of a club that was floundering when he arrived more than a quarter of a century ago, having won a European title at modest Aberdeen in Scotland. While it took time for Ferguson to impose his leadership at Old Trafford, directors showed a degree of patience rarely afforded to current managers. With his unwavering approach, Ferguson eventually produced his first trophy in 1990 -- the FA Cup -- and in 1993 the club won its first topflight title since 1967. Since then, he has turned United into a European power and one of the worlds wealthiest sports clubs. In addition to Champions League titles in 1999 and 2008, United has also won four League Cups and the 2008 FIFA Club World Cup. "In my early years, the backing of the board, and Sir Bobby Charlton in particular, gave me the confidence and time to build a football club, rather than just a football team," Ferguson said. "Over the past decade, the Glazer family have provided me with the platform to manage Manchester United to the best of my ability." Ferguson thanked his players for their "staggering level of professional conduct and dedication that has helped to deliver so many memorable triumphs." "Without their contribution the history of this great club would not be as rich," Ferguson said. Now United will have to plan for a future without Ferguson in the dugout. "Alexs vision, energy and ability have built teams -- both on and off the pitch -- that his successor can count on as among the best and most loyal in world sport," Uniteds chief executive David Gill said. Gill told The Associated Press two weeks ago that Fergusons successor would have to adapt to the existing squad and support team rather than making radical changes. "The quality of the squad, the composition of that squad, means that any new manager coming in will inherit a great squad of players," Gill said. "And yes he may, whenever that is ... clearly want to bring in one or two of his own people, new players. "But he wont want to change the squad wholesale because he wont be our manager." Such a vision would point to the 51-year-old Moyes being hired over another manager being tipped by bookmakers, Real Madrids Jose Mourinho. "What we are looking for is not someone to come in (for) 10 months or three years, we want someone to come stay there and give stability," former United goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel said. "When we talk about Moyes, he has been a decade at Everton and done a fantastic job on limited funds." Before United was listed on the NYSE last year, the club warned that a successor to Ferguson "may not be as successful." "A downturn in the performance of our first team could adversely affect our ability to attract and retain coaches and players," United said in July.
