So any negativity

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Chad Knaus will act as if this shot at a record-tying seventh championship is just another race, and that he has barely thought of what it means for his place in the record books with Jimmie Johnson.Knaus has already led Johnson to a record five straight titles, six overall, and is now aiming to be the first crew chief in history to win seven NASCAR titles with the same driver. Hall of Fame crew chief Dale Inman won eight, but not with one driver.Knaus will downplay this until the bitter end -- even if he hoists the championship trophy with Johnson on Sunday night at Homestead-Miami Speedway.I guess I really dont know what I want my legacy to be, Knaus said Wednesday. I guess just to be remembered as a real racer, I guess, more than anything. I was a grass-roots racer from the Midwest who got an opportunity ... (and) was able to work my way up methodically. For people just to remember that I started out as a racer and ended as a racer is probably my biggest goal.Johnson will face defending series champion Kyle Busch, Joey Logano and Carl Edwards on Sunday, with the highest-finishing driver winning the championship.If its Johnson, he will tie Richard Petty and the late Dale Earnhardt as the only drivers with seven titles. But hell have it done it with a team that Knaus built from the bottom, and the No. 48 team would be the first to win seven titles with the same driver, crew chief and sponsor.Knaus admits that distinction would make it even more phenomenal.Its been an honor to be able to work with Jimmie, Lowes and Hendrick Motorsports throughout this portion of my career, he said. Being able to represent this company and our associates the way that we have has been a lot of fun. To Jimmie personally, obviously he is by far one of my best friends, and to be able to have seen him grow and mature into the driver and the family man that he is has been awesome. Its been a great ride.BACK-TO-BACKKyle Busch hand-picked Adam Stevens to be his crew chief when Joe Gibbs Racing made personnel changes after the 2014 season.The two had clicked working together in the Xfinity Series, and Busch felt Stevens could be the one to lead him to a championship. They succeeded last year, rallying from a deep hole after Busch missed a third of the season with injuries suffered at Daytona. Now they are back in the finale trying to become the first repeat winners since Johnson reeled off five consecutive titles.Stevens said he and Busch have not focused on the back-to-back opportunity.We havent talked about that specifically, but the chances to win a championship in this sport arent going to come every year, he said. When you get that chance, you want to make sure that youve turned over every stone and taken every turn that you can to try to make it happen.You know, back-to-back, or once every 10 years, or however often you can find yourself in this opportunity with a shot to win is colossal.OUTSIDERS VIEWDave Rogers has worked for Joe Gibbs Racing for 18 years. During that time, he watched Bobby Labonte win a championship, and was a team member on Tony Stewarts crew when Stewart won two titles. A crew chief change at JGR moved him off of Kyle Buschs team last year and Busch went on to win the title.Now Rogers is finally in the championship hunt on his own, with Carl Edwards, and hes ready to lead a team to a title he can call his own.Theres lots of experiences, successes and failures that prepare you for this, Rogers said. Theres a handful of championships that Ive witnessed. This is obviously the first time that Ive gone to Homestead personally as a crew chief prepared to race for the championship, but theres a winning pedigree here at JGR and everyones open notebook policy has prepared me well for this weekend.Rogers didnt make it to the finale as crew chief for Busch or Denny Hamlin. Edwards lost the 2011 championship to Stewart on a tie-breaker. They both feel like past experience has them prepared for Sunday.Weve both been in situations where weve come up short, and we know what its like to lose, Rogers said. Now we want to go down there and try to figure out how to win it. I know Carl was disappointed last year that he fell short. The 11 (Hamlin team) was disappointed last year that we fell short, but now were teamed up together, our first year together, were going down there with the option to win it, and were just excited about it.LESSONS LEARNEDJoey Logano and Todd Gordon thought they were ready to win a championship when they raced for a title in 2014.Then one bad pit stop ended their chances. With that experience behind them, Gordon believes they have the mental toughness to win the title.I think in 2014, that was when we went through this the first time. Not knowing what to do or what to expect or how it was going to flow out, the championship race, race weekend, he said. This time around ... I think its matters as usual.I feel a lot of calm from his feedback and what hes saying and what hes doing and the mannerisms. Hes all (about) just making this another race, and I think in a great position. Jamaal Williams Super Bowl Jersey . -- Mike Smith never saw his first NHL goal go in. Elgton Jenkins Super Bowl Jersey .com) - The Calgary Flames aim to bounce back from their first regulation home loss of the campaign on Friday night when they host a Detroit Red Wings club that they swept in three meetings a season ago. http://www.shoptheofficialpackers.com/Elite-Tony-Brown-Packers-Jersey/ . The Cincinnati Reds remain perfect with their speedy rookie outfielder in the starting lineup. Dean Lowry Super Bowl Jersey . The 28-year-old from Calgary matched his career best after missing just one shot in his two rounds of shooting in the mens 10-kilometre sprint competition. Smith finished in 23 minutes 15. Jace Sternberger Super Bowl Jersey . The Swede became the first golfer to win the PGA Tours FedEx Cup and European Tours Race to Dubai in the same season. "It is still taking a little time to sink in what Ive achieved this week as was the case when I won the FedEx Cup but then it just kept getting better and better as the days went on and I am sure this will be the same," he said. Carmelo Anthony indicated Friday that hed prefer to hear criticism from within the team in private rather than having it stated publicly, as?New York Knicks president Phil Jackson did this week, and that he doesnt want any negativity to envelop the team.I just feel if it was something he wanted to address and had a stance on something, the door has always been open both ways, Anthony told reporters Friday after the Knicks shootaround in Sacramento, California. He always sends me a text or talks to me if it was any type of problem that was going on. I always welcome the conversation with open arms.Anthony also confirmed that his Instagram posts Thursday about ego and relationships and slings and arrows were a reference to Jacksons critique that he holds on to the ball for too long.I think I said my part of it, Anthony said of the Instagram posts. Im a big quote guy. Got a million quotes on my phone. Sometimes they come up at the right time.In an interview with CBS Sports Network that aired Tuesday, Jackson said Anthony can play the role that Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant played in their teams triangle offenses, but he said Anthony sometimes breaks a team rule by holding on to the ball too long.Carmelo a lot of times wants to hold the ball longer than -- we have a rule: If you hold a pass two seconds, you benefit the defense. So he has a little bit of a tendency to hold it for three, four, five seconds, and then everybody comes to a stop, Jackson said. That is one of the things we work with. But hes adjusted to [the triangle], he knows what he can do and hes willing to see its success.Jacksons comments were prompted by a question about whether Anthony can fit in the triangle offense. Jackson made it clear that he believes Anthony can.Its a perfect spot for him to be in that isolated position on the weak side because its an overload offfense and theres a weakside man that always has an advantage if the ball is swung.ddddddddddddAnthony didnt want to discuss Jacksons comments after Wednesdays game.I was caught off-guard, not really knowing what was going on, Anthony said.But the veteran forward addressed the matter Friday after reading Jacksons comments. He said that he understands criticism will come from fans and media but was surprised that this most recent critique came from within the team.I know it happens -- its New York. It happens, and its something I know, Anthony said.But he said it wasnt something he expected from within the team.Like I said, I didnt talk to him, Anthony said. I really dont know, kind of, where he was coming from with those comments. He wants to talk about it, cool. If he doesnt, cool. In my eyes, its over to me.Anthony added: At the end of the day were playing good basketball. Thats the only thing that matters at this point. So any negativity thats coming towards me or towards the team, I dont think we need it at this point.Anthony said that Jackson has never addressed Anthonys tendency to hold on to the ball too long during their previous chats.Nothing specifically. Conversations are more about basketball and what we see about the team, the film and games in different situations. Nothing specific about me doing one thing or me doing another thing.He said hes been receptive to Jacksons suggestions during previous conversations.I sat there, listened, Anthony said of his chats with Jackson. If it was something good he had talked about, we talked about it. If it was something we could do better, I could do better, we talked about that. Its always been good conversation when we talked. I dont know whats going on. ' ' '
