    鈥?The NFL is exploring options to get more than $2 million in reimbursement for legal fees from Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones over his threat to derail Commissioner Roger Goodell’s contract extension and support of running back Ezekiel Elliott’s fight to avoid a six-game suspension Rashaan Evans Titans Jersey , said a person with knowledge of the situation.Many owners were consulted on seeking restitution, including members of the finance committee, according to the person who spoke to The Associated Press Monday on condition of anonymity because the matter hasn’t been addressed publicly.Some of the finance committee members are on the compensation committee that was at the center of what became a legal back-and-forth over Goodell’s deal.The attempt at restitution is rooted in a 1997 resolution that states owners can seek repayment for legal fees if a fellow owner is responsible for getting them involved in legal action.The Cowboys declined to comment on the owners’ actions.Jones’ attempt to derail Goodell’s extension, which came after Elliott was suspended over domestic violence allegations, led to a volley of threatening letters from lawyers for both sides.After eventually relenting, Jones said after the owners meetings in December that he got what he wanted with an agreement to consider changes to the power of the commissioner’s role through the league’s constitution.Jones denied that his attempt to scuttle the contract was tied to Elliott’s suspension, but made repeated references to Goodell’s power to punish players.With Jones and Goodell in the same room for a news conference after the December meetings, the commissioner said he didn’t take Jones’ objections to the extension personally. Goodell also denied assuring Jones that Elliott wouldn’t be suspended before announcing the punishment in August.Jones and the Cowboys were supportive of Elliott’s lawsuit, which was led by the players’ union and resulted in federal court hearings in three states over a span of two months. The suit eventually failed and Elliott served the suspension. Time was running out in a game earlier this season that Golden State was going to win by 10 points, and Andre Iguodala decided to take a 3-pointer instead of getting the Warriors charged with a shot-clock violation.

    The Warriors’ opponent that night: Cleveland.

    If an unwritten rule of basketball was broken James Daniels Jersey , no one seemed bothered then. But in Game 1 of the NBA Finals, when Shaun Livingston took a jumper with about 3 seconds left in overtime and the outcome decided, the Cavaliers‘ feathers got ruffled and Tristan Thompson got ejected.

    One can only guess how those emotions will affect things when the series resumes with Game 2 on Sunday night.

    ”I contested a shot that shouldn’t have been taken,” Thompson said.

    ”Whatever. Just play it to the end,” Warriors guard Stephen Curry said.

    It’s a thorny issue with no solution.

    Philadelphia and Miami jawed over late-game shot attempts in their playoff series this season. The 76ers and Cavs exchanged words over a Dario Saric dunk late in a blowout in March. The Warriors’ JaVale McGee got shoved by Washington’s Brandon Jennings while taking a late 3 in a rout last season. Toronto once sent about half its team to speak to Lance Stephenson after a late open layup in an Indiana win.

    And now the rules – arbitrary as they may be – are up for debate in the NBA Finals after the Cavaliers took offense to the Warriors playing offense.

    ”I mean, it’s like the unspoken rule in the NBA: If you’re up by 10 or 11 with about 20 seconds left, you don’t take that shot,” Thompson said. ”I made the contest, and next thing I know I was being kicked out for making a contest that we learn in training camp. I don’t know why I got thrown out.”

    Referee Tony Brothers explained why postgame, saying he saw Thompson go into Livingston with his elbow high on that shot. In Brothers’ eyes Billy Price Jersey , that merited the assessment of a flagrant-2 foul and ejection.

    ”It’s not affecting the outcome of the game,” Miami center Kelly Olynyk said Friday from India, where he’s appearing at a Basketball Without Borders event for the NBA this week. ”It doesn’t really matter to me. It doesn’t really make a difference to me. It doesn’t make a difference in the outcome of the game, win and loss record. If a guy wants two more points we’ll give it to him and move on.”

    Thing is, the Warriors take those shots all the time. It’s basically a team policy. Since the start of the 2016-17 season when facing such a situation – time running out, shot clock still on, game outcome clearly decided – Golden State has been charged with a field-goal attempt 38 times, while committing only five shot-clock violations.

    Warriors coach Steve Kerr has a simple rule: Don’t partake in any habit that leads to a turnover.

    His guys are listening.

    ”That’s our thing,” Golden State forward Kevin Durant said. ”It’s no disrespect to any other team. It’s just what we do. We don’t want to take the turnover. We take the shot. So we’ve been doing that all year, since I’ve been here Baker Mayfield Jersey Youth , too.”

    For his part, Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue shrugged off the Livingston shot Friday.

    ”Got to play to the buzzer,” Lue said. ”They took a shot and that’s what they do. It doesn’t determine the game. The game was over. It’s no big deal to me. So, whatever.”

    The three instances this season of the Warriors taking a shot-clock violation in those situations have one thing in common – they were all against New Orleans, and it should be noted that Kerr and Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry are close friends.

    Otherwise, they don’t take the foot off the gas.

    In the past two seasons the Warriors have taken shots in the final seconds with leads of 30, 36, 44 and 45 points.

    ”I don’t think we would get on our feelings if somebody came down and finished out a possession and got a shot up,” Curry said. ”I mean, obviously Brian O'Neill Youth Jersey , if they’re doing some taunting or doing some crazy stuff, that’s a little different. But if you’re just playing the game of basketball and finishing out a possession instead of taking a turnover, I don’t see any problem with that at all. Guys are out there to finish a game and play the right way.”

    Game 1 had a collection of wacky things happen in the final moments – an overturned block-charge call that left LeBron James livid, J.R. Smith’s baffling decision to run out the clock at the end of regulation, and James and Curry jawing at one another after the Warriors guard tried a layup on the possession before Livingston got fouled on his late shot.

    And Cleveland hopes its frustration becomes fuel for Game 2.

    ”It’s not going to be a prom dance,” Cleveland’s George Hill said. ”It’s going to be a fight.”
