02/19/2019 3:32pm

Cy Young Award-winning pitcher Don Newcombe, considered one of the all-time great Dodgers and one of the storied franchises final links to a bygone era, died at age 92, the team announced Tuesday.Newcombe pitched for 10 seasons, mostly for the Brooklyn and Los Angeles Dodgers. He won both the Cy Young and National League Most Valuable Player awards in 1956. Updates: Download the NBCLA App Born in New Jersey, Newcombe represents one of the franchises final links to its years in Brooklyn.Don Newcombes presence and life established him as a role model for major leaguers across the country, said Dodgers President Stan Kasten. He was a constant presence at Dodger Stadium and players always gravitated to him for his endless advice and leadership. The Dodgers meant everything to him and we are all fortunate he was part of our lives.Newcombe, like Dodgers teammate Jackie Robinson, was signed by Branch Rickey from the Negro Leagues and went on to make a huge mark in the major leagues.Newcombe joined the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1949, winning 17 games en route to a Rookie of the Year award as he helped lead the team to the National League pennant. His pitching career was interrupted by military service for two years, when he served in the Korea in 1952-53. He returned to the Dodgers in 1954. Two years later, he won the Cy Young Award and was named National League MVP.Newk was a fierce presence on the mound, a 6-foot-4 and 225-pound bear of a man who stared down hitters and backed up anyone foolish enough to crowd the plate. He was a four-time All-Star and won 20 games three different times.He remained with the Dodgers until 1958, then ended his career with stints in Cincinnati and Cleveland.Newcombe, Robinson and catcher Roy Campanella were a trio of black stars for the Dodgers who often supported each other.We came up with a strategy, Newcombe later recalled. We knew the impact we were attempting would have. We had to endure. Robinsons character, his backbone, his guts -- those were the keys. Jackie was the leader under Mr. Rickey.The three talked frequently, Campanella and Newcombe from the Dodgers Nashua, New Hampshire, farm team and Robinson from Brooklyn.We talked about how things were going, Newcombe said. What if somebody charged the mound on me What would I do Nobody did.I remember in the New England league, a catcher threw dirt in Roys face. He said, If you do that again, Ill personally take your arm out of its socket. They challenged us. They did anything they could to break down the idea.Newcombes Dodgers were perennial also-rans, who specialized in winning the National League pennant then losing the World Series to the Yankees. Newcombe played on three pennant winners with the Dodgers and the World Series champions in 1955, the year they finally beat the Yankees.He is survived by his wife, Karen children Don Newcombe Jr., Kelly Roxanne Newcombe and Brett Anthony Newcombe and grandchildren Cayman and Riann.Photo Credit: Getty Images This story uses functionality that may not work in our app. Click here to open the story in your web browser.

Warriors' Kevin Durant Named NBA All-Star Game MVP
02/18/2019 7:01am

Out of all the stars on the court at the 2019 NBA All-Star Game in Charlotte on Sunday night, Kevin Durant shined the brightest.He, Klay Thompson and Team LeBron defeated Steph Curry and Team Giannis 178-164 in the annual showcase game, and when all was said and done, it was Durant raising the games MVP trophy above his head. Breathtaking Firefall Lights Up Yosemite National Park All these players are great, you know, Durant said upon receiving the trophy. Were mixing up the conferences, and theres so many great players in the league. So to be out here amongst so much greatness, I appreciate it.Team Giannis actually led by as many as 20 points in the third quarter, but Durant and Team LeBron staged a late comeback and dominated over the final 18 minutes of play. Durant accounted for a team-high 31 points on 10-of-15 shooting from the field and 6-of-9 from 3-point range, in addition to seven rebounds and two assists. Obama, Steph Curry Mark 5 Years of My Brothers Keeper This will definitely give me some bragging rights, me and Klay, Durant said of Team LeBrons winning performance. But Steph did hit that tough shot over Klay, so Im sure were gonna be talking about that for the next couple of days.Im glad I got the MVP, as well. Tom Cruise Gracious, Professional During Filming: Navy It marked Durants second time being named MVP of the All-Star Game, after he won the award for the first time back in 2012. He becomes just the fourth player in Warriors franchise history to be named All-Star MVP, and the first to do so since Rick Barry in 1967.Its all sweet to me. Its hard to rank, Durant said of his All-Star Game MVP award. Everything is special. But it was cool to be out there with the best players in the game. Keep trying to rack them up, I guess.If Durant and the Warriors continue on the trajectory theyve been on ever since he signed with Golden State in July 2016 -- of course, his upcoming free agency could play a major factor -- he should have plenty of opportunities to add to that total in the future.Following the game, Durant spoke with the Inside the NBA crew about how he compares the current Warriors team to the ones that have won the last two NBA championships.I think were all a little bit more seasoned, Durant said. I think weve been together for a couple years, and we know our tendencies and we know exactly what we need to do on offense and defense to compliment each other.Now that All-Star festivities have come to an end, the time for individual accolades has as well. Only 25 games separate the Warriors from the postseason, and despite winning All-Star MVP, Durant has much bigger goals in mind.Photo Credit: Getty Images
