NEW YORK -- NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said Monday his league will "take a fresh look" at its domestic violence procedures in the wake of the NFLs rash of incidents. Air Jordan Black Friday . Silver said during a community service event in Staten Island that the league has been discussing with the NBA Players Association ways to further educate players and provide programs to them and their families. "We learn from other leagues experiences," Silver said. "Were studying everything thats been happening in the NFL. Were working with our players association. Weve been talking for several weeks and were going to take a fresh look at everything we do." The NFL and Commissioner Roger Goodell have been criticized for punishments that were too slow or lenient for Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson and other players involved in recent domestic violence cases. Goodell said last week the NFL wants to implement new personal conduct policies by the Super Bowl. The NBAs collective bargaining agreement calls for a minimum 10-game suspension for a first offence of a player convicted of a violent felony. "We have in place the appropriate mechanisms for discipline, although well take a fresh look at those as well," Silver said. "But most importantly, its education, and its not just the players, but its the players families. Thats what were learning, too. "We have to take these programs directly to the players spouses, directly to their partners so that theyre aware of places they can go to express concerns, whether theyre anonymous hotlines, team executives, league executives. And were consulting experts. Theres a lot to be learned here. Its a societal problem; its not one thats unique to sports." Silver spoke at the opening of a refurbished Staten Island playground and basketball court in an area damaged by Hurricane Sandy. He was joined by Mayor Bill de Blasio and Knicks and Nets officials in announcing community efforts throughout New York, which will host the 2015 All-Star weekend. Silver said the goal of the programs is to directly reach 500,000 children. New union executive director Michele Roberts also took part in what was her first official day in her new position. However, Silver said discussions with her started before Monday. "We do have in place, unlike the NFL, a penalty scale, and to the extent it needs any tweaking, then well talk about tweaking it," Roberts said. "What I hope were going to do as well is figure out ways to prevent any occurrence like that on our side. Its one thing to know how to react in the event it happens; its a lot smarter to try to make sure it doesnt happen in the first instance." Silver noted that the NBA has had its own difficulties with issues off the court, saying the aftermath of former Clippers owner Donald Sterlings racist remarks means "everyone understands the high standard that we are living under now in the NBA." The NFLs issues just accelerated the need to look for improvements. "Its been going on, but the whole world is focused right now on whats happening around the NFL," Silver said, "so itd be foolish for us not to try to learn from everything thats happening with that league as well."

As expected, the Braves also called up right-hander Julio Teheran from Gwinnett to start Sundays game and optioned backup catcher J. Nike Air Jordan Retro 2017 . LOUIS -- Known for his game-managing and defensive skills, Yadier Molina made another statement with his bat.OAKLAND, Calif. -- Jason Hammel walked off the mound in the sixth inning to a standing ovation from the announced crowd of 16,335 at the Coliseum. He saluted the fans with his right hand, looking more relieved than happy. Maybe for good reason. Hammel snapped a four-start losing streak since being traded to Oakland and led the Athletics past the Tampa Bay Rays 3-0 on Tuesday night. "Felt awesome," Hammel said. "I wanted to come in and make an immediate impact. It didnt work out that way. But it goes to show you how good of baseball fans we have here." Hammel (1-4) allowed seven hits and four walks in 5 2-3 innings. He entered the game with a 9.53 ERA since the As acquired him and Jeff Samardzija from the Chicago Cubs on July 4. The right-hander said he worked in more breaking balls to keep hitters guessing. "Its a lot harder to hit when youre thinking of four different pitches instead of two," he said. Coco Crisp, starting for the first time since July 26, singled home a run in the fifth, and Nate Freiman hit an RBI double during a two-run sixth to spoil Drew Smylys debut with Tampa Bay. Smyly (6-10) gave up all three runs, seven hits and two walks, including one intentional, in 5 1-3 innings. The left-hander was traded from Detroit last week in the three-team deal that sent ace David Price to the Tigers. "I fought pretty good," Smyly said. "My pitch count got up there. I had a couple of deep counts. I missed my pitch against Freiman. Other than that, I thought I pitched well." Tampa Bay has lost three straight and five of six after an 11-1 stretch. The Rays never could crack Hammel, who pitched for Tampa Bay from 2006-08, or any of the pitchers the major-league leading As threw their way. Three relievers tossed scoreless ball before Sean Doolittle pitched a perfect ninth for his 17th save in 20 tries to preserve Hammels win. "That might be just what he needed," Doolittle said, "to get on a roll.&" DEFENSIVE AS Hammel escaped trouble in the third and fourth innings by inducing a pair of ground balls that led to double plays. Air Jordan 2017 Black Friday. As shortstop Eric Sogard also snagged Ben Zobrists hard grounder and made a quick throw to nab Desmond Jennings at third base for the first out of the fifth. Sogard started at shortstop instead of second base because Jed Lowrie was nursing a bruised right index finger. "He really looked like he was comfortable," As manager Bob Melvin said. RAYS ERRORS It was a far different story on defence for the Rays. Curt Casali was called for catchers interference on Josh Reddicks grounder leading off the As eighth. Third baseman Evan Longoria threw way wide on a relay home in the sixth for another error that helped Derek Norris score from first on Freimans double. And Kevin Kiermaier tried to cut down Alberto Callaspo at the plate on Crisps single in the fifth but sailed his throw to the backstop from right field. "I always encourage guys if theyre going to throw it away, to really throw it away. So he takes instruction well," Rays manager Joe Maddon said. "Really, though, when youre not scoring, those things get magnified." TRAINERS ROOM Rays: Outfielder Wil Myers, on the 60-day disabled list with a broken right wrist, went through an extensive workout and drills for the second straight day in Port Charlotte, Florida. The Rays could decide by the end of the week when Myers will begin his rehab assignment. Athletics: Lowrie (bruised right index finger) is day to day. First baseman Kyle Blanks (left calf injury) ran the bases and will do so again on Thursday before Oakland decides whether to send him out on a rehab assignment. ON DECK Rays: Jeremy Hellickson (0-1, 3.29) tries to snap his six-start winless streak, which dates to Sept. 4, 2013. Athletics: Sonny Gray (12-4, 2.59) goes in the series finale after winning AL Pitcher of the Month for July.
