This past week alone, the Golden State Warriors locked down the top seed in the West, the Atlanta Hawks did the same in the East, and the Toronto Raptors collected their second straight Atlantic Division crown—their first such back-to-back success... The Milwaukee Bucks figure to wrap up the No. 6 seed in the Eastern Conference, just as the Dallas Mavericks do at No. 7 out West. But the last two slots in the East and the No. 8 one on the other side of the bracket will likely be decided between seven teams that are hoping to survive the regular season. First-round dances of death opposite the Warriors, Hawks and (presumably) Cleveland Cavaliers. Until then, let's take a moment to reset the Association by ranking all 30 teams from worst to first, based on recent performance and available personnel. Never in their 69-year history had the New York Knicks lost 60 games in a single season. That is, until the Knicks slogged through a 111-80 loss to the Chicago Bulls on Saturday. Come Wednesday, New York suffered the first 61st loss in franchise history, with the rival Brooklyn Nets adding this particular insult to the injury of a dismal campaign. According to ESPN New York's Ian Begley , Jackson sent out a video message to season ticket-holders that attempted to soothe their concerns and encourage renewals.

Hill, a Sarnia native who began his university playing career under Triano in 1989-90, and later served as the team’s assistant coach for six seasons beginning in 1994-95, is the first former Clan player to guide the team since Triano left the... “Right now it’s about changing the culture in the program,” Hill said of the challenge of getting the Clan up to snuff in the GNAC, where under former head coach James Blake, the program went a combined 15-75 in conference games over its first... To that end, Hill, 45, will draw on his experiences over the past 15 seasons as a head coach. He spent the first seven following his assistant coaching career at SFU as a head coach in the CIS, with Sudbury’s Laurentian Voyageurs, and the last eight at the high school level where he built West Vancouver’s Collingwood School into a... “When SFU was having success in the 1980s and 1990s, it was with a good synergy of B. C. and Ontario kids,” said Hill, whose former Ontario Clan teammates included the likes of Steve Anderson, Sean O’Brien, David Munro and Russ Field.
And that appears to be consistent among homebuyers, whether they bought recently, or back in 2003, before real estate in markets like Toronto and Vancouver virtually doubled or tripled in price, according to the annual spring survey of the... The survey mirrors the slowdown now hitting many Canadian housing markets , with the exception of Toronto, Vancouver and Calgary where price growth remains exceptionally strong: Mortgage credit growth has averaged about 8. 4 per cent per year over...
