When it came to sport, Nelson Mandela had the ability to inspire even inspirational figures and leave global stars completely star-struck. Nikola Pekovic Timberwolves Jersey . The anti-apartheid leader, former South African president and Nobel Peace Prize winner died on Thursday at the age of 95, prompting a vast outpouring of tributes from the worlds best-known athletes and top sporting bodies. Muhammad Ali, himself a role model for so many, said Mandela inspired others to "reach for what appeared to be impossible." "What I will remember most about Mr. Mandela is that he was a man whose heart, soul and spirit could not be contained or restrained by racial and economic injustices, metal bars or the burden of hate and revenge," Ali said in a statement through his foundation. Pele wrote, "He was my hero, my friend." Tiger Woods called his meeting with Mandela in 1998 "inspiring times." "Its sad for everyone who got a chance to not only meet him, but Ive been influenced by him," Woods said. Usain Bolt posted on Twitter: "One of the greatest human beings ever." The NBAs LeBron James said: "In his 95 years, he was able to do unbelievable things not only for South Africa but for the whole world." As much as sportsmen and women loved Mandela, he in turn loved sport and appreciated its enormous potential to do good. Nowhere more than in his own country, where he famously used the 1995 Rugby World Cup to knock down the last barriers of apartheid. "A remarkable man who understood that sport could build bridges, break down walls, and reveal our common humanity," International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach said in a statement to The Associated Press. The IOC would fly the Olympic flag at half-staff for three days for Mandela, he said. Bach later choked up while speaking about when he met Mandela in 1996 and asked the former political prisoner if he felt hatred toward the apartheid regime that imprisoned him for 27 years. "His immediate response was no but he saw the doubt in my eyes," Bach said on Friday. "You dont believe me? he asked. I can tell you why. If I hate I would not be a free man anymore." Bach wasnt the only one to show his emotions. Gary Player paused while speaking at a golf tournament in South Africa to compose himself and wipe away tears. "When you think of a man going to jail for all those years for doing the right thing, not the wrong thing, its hard to comprehend that a man can come out and be like that," Player said. "He was an exceptional man, just exceptional." FIFA president Sepp Blatter said he and world football were in mourning at Mandelas passing and ordered that the 209 flags of its member countries at FIFA headquarters in Switzerland also be flown at half-staff. "It is in deep mourning that I pay my respects to an extraordinary person, probably one of the greatest humanists of our time and a dear friend of mine," Blatter said. From a cricket test in Australia to basketball games in the United States, and a golf tournament in the wilderness of South Africa, Mandela was remembered by players and fans across sport with moments of silence. A keen amateur boxer and runner in his youth, Mandela understood the intricacies of rugby, football and cricket, the most popular sports in his country, but even games and players the South African wouldnt have been familiar with were touched by him. "Nelson Mandela was one of the most powerful and inspirational leaders in the world and a great friend of the NBA," league commissioner David Stern said, "... and while we mourn his passing, we know that his legacy and quest for equality will endure." Sport was never far from Mandelas mind. He was there -- often the driving force -- when South Africa returned to the Olympic family, won rugbys World Cup, won footballs African Cup and earned the right to host FIFAs World Cup in 2010, the first in Africa. It was fitting that Mandelas last appearance for an adoring public was when he greeted fans in a packed stadium on the outskirts of Soweto ahead of the 2010 World Cup final. "When he was honoured and cheered by the crowd ... it was as a man of the people, a man of their hearts, and it was one of the most moving moments I have ever experienced," Blatter said. A string of Spains World Cup winners from that year and Portugals Cristiano Ronaldo all tweeted messages of condolence, with many including photographs of themselves with Mandela. Global superstars Woods and David Beckham both made a point of meeting him when they travelled to South Africa. Woods came out of his audience with a copy of the mans autobiography and Beckham was almost reverent in their 2003 meeting. "We have lost a true gentleman and a courageous human being," Beckham said on his Facebook page. "It was truly an honour to have known a man who had genuine love for so many people." South African golfer Ernie Els said that from around 1996 onwards Mandela would call him every time he won a tournament and they once exchanged gifts after Mandela visited him at a tournament near the ex-presidents Johannesburg home. "Ive still got that picture in my office in the U.S.," Els said. "He was just the most amazing person I have ever met." But Mandelas interest in sport wasnt just for the grand occasion and the photo opportunity. Recalling his first conversation with a still imprisoned Mandela in 1986 and away from the media spotlight, former Australian prime minister Malcolm Fraser said Mandelas first question was about cricket and the man regarded as that sports greatest player. "His first remark to me, after hello, was ... Mr. Fraser, is Donald Bradman still alive?" Fraser later brought him a bat signed by Bradman. Crickets finest batsman had written "in recognition of a great unfinished innings" for Mandela on the bat. What Mandela did at that 1995 Rugby World Cup final is one of sports defining moments and enshrined in the new South Africas conscience. By pulling on the green and gold jersey of the Springboks, the national team previously all-white and associated with the apartheid regime, Mandela signalled to all South Africans that they should unite. His presentation of the trophy to the Springboks blond captain Francois Pienaar provided a lasting image of reconciliation that politics just couldnt match. "It was our privilege to have lived in this country during his lifetime," South African Rugby Union president Oregan Hoskins said. After 1995, Mandela commonly referred to the team that had previously been boycotted abroad for its associations with apartheid as "my beloved Springboks." Current Springboks captain Jean de Villiers said: "His presence at a test match just lifted the crowd and energized the team -- it is actually hard to describe." Even for New Zealands losing rugby captain on that famous June day in 1995, Sean Fitzpatrick, Mandelas effect was too momentous not to appreciate. "Afterwards, when we were driving back to our hotel crying, to see the sheer enjoyment of everyone running down the streets ... black, white, colored, whatever they were, just arm in arm celebrating sport," Fitzpatrick said. "He saw the bigger picture." Tyus Jones Jersey . Rinne had surgery on his left hip May 9 and recovered in time to start the season. He then had arthroscopic surgery on Oct. 24 because of a bacterial infection in his hip. Custom Timberwolves Jersey . Russia has spent about $51 billion to deliver the Sochi Olympics, which run Feb. 7-23, making them the most expensive games ever, even though as a winter event it hosts many fewer athletes than summer games do. http://www.thetimberwolvesteamshop.com/shabazz-muhammad-timberwolves-jersey/ ." The tournament was set to be held Sept. 15-21 and would have been the first ATP tournament held in Israel since 1996. But amid Israels military campaign against Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip, ATP President Chris Kermode said "we do not feel we can proceed as planned given the situation in the region.Every year, there are players that take a step forward offensively, earning bigger roles, maybe with more power play time, and they produce more points than they have previously in their careers. Scott Cullen takes a look at some candidates for breakthrough performances this season: Mikael Granlund, C, Minnesota - Highly-touted coming out of Finland, where he scored 51 points in 45 games in 2011-2012, Granlund has taken some time to get acclimated to the North American game. He scored 28 points in 29 AHL games during the lockout in 2012-2013, but suffered an ankle injury while he was in the minors and managed just eight points in 27 games once he was called up. Last season, there was progress. Granlund scored 41 points in 63 games, including 21 in his last 24 regular-season games, earning a bigger offensive role with Mikko Koivu missing time due to injury. Ita€?s not easy to take the step from where Granlund has been to this point in his career to being a player who could score 65-70 points but, with a few breaks, thata€?s not an unreasonable target for Granlund. Alex Galchenyuk, LW, Montreal a€“ Though Galchenyuk has spent some time at centre in training camp, hea€?s still more likely a fit on the wing with the Canadiens at this point. Despite earning an extra couple minutes of ice time per game, hea€?s coming off a sophomore season in which his points-per-game dipped from 0.56 PPG as a rookie to 0.48 PPG last year, but a large part of that loss was a result of on-ice shooting percentage falling from an inflated 11.8% as a rookie to 7.3% last season. Provided that Galchenyuk stays healthy a€“ he suffered a broken hand then a late-season knee injury last season a€“ and continues to get more ice time, he is positioned to see a production boost in his third season, in part because the Canadiens dona€?t have a lot of highly-skilled forwards and Galchenyuk is one that has the potential to produce. The question may be whether the Canadiens are ready to give him that opportunity. Mika Zibanejad, C, Ottawa a€“ Oddly demoted to Binghamton of the AHL at the start of last season, where he scored seven points in six games before getting recalled, Zibanejad put up 33 points in 69 games for the Senators. With Jason Spezza leaving for Dallas, there is ample room for Zibanejad to move up the depth chart and play more than the 14:20 per game that he skated last season, when he was already one of the most prolific shooters on the club. More ice time should bring more production, especially since Zibanejad hasna€?t been reaping the rewards of any inflated shooting percentages to this point in his career. Patrick Maroon, LW, Anaheim a€“ A 26-year-old who finally stuck in the league as a regular last season, Maroon offers a rare combination of goal-scoring and penalty minutes. The 6-foot-4 winger had 118 goals and 544 penalty minutes in 353 AHL games before earning a spot with the Ducks last season. He started slowly, receiving limited ice time, but then finished the year with 12 points in the last 12 games, before adding seven points in 13 playoff games as he played a bigger role. While Maroon is due to have his on-ice shooting percentage (10.7%) decline, if that bigger role includes more regular opportunities on the wing with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry, it would be easy to see Maroon flying past last seasona€?s 29-point output. Tyler Toffoli, RW, Los Angeles a€“ This 22-year-old winger forced his way into the spotlight during last seasona€?s Stanley Cup run, skating alongside Jeff Carter and Tanner Pearson on the Kingsa€? second line. Toffoli, who was a big scorer in junior, tallying 109 goals in 133 games his last two seasons with Ottawa of the OHL, has scored 23 goals and 54 points in 110 (regular season plus playoff) games with the Kings over the ppast couple years, playing less than 13 minutes per game. Authentic Nikola Pekovic Jersey. Hea€?s improved his skating and still has the release of a goal-scorer, so dona€?t be surprised if a full season with regular ice time on a scoring line leads to a 25-goal campaign for Toffoli. Sean Couturier, C, Philadelphia a€“ Asked to play a defensive role early in his career because, unlike most young players, he was so adept defensively, 21-year-old Couturier did score a career-high 39 points last season, but that could just be scratching the surface. In junior, Couturier put up 192 points in 126 games over his last two seasons with Drummondville of the QMJHL, so hea€?s not lost in the offensive zone. It may just be a matter of getting put into more offensive situations and if the Flyers are prepared to do that with Couturier, who has been skating with wingers Wayne Simmonds and Matt Read, then this could be the year that Couturiera€?s production takes off. Dougie Hamilton, D, Boston a€“ The ninth overall pick in 2011, Hamilton has been eased into the lineup by the Bruins, but at the end of last season, he tallied 13 points in 25 (regular season plus playoff) games, showing a glimpse of his offensive potential. Hamilton has registered only 10 of his 41 career points with the man advantage, so that is one area of his game that should be primed for growth as the Bruins lean more on the talented 21-year-old. Nail Yakupov, RW, Edmonton a€“ Expectations for the first overall pick in the 2012 Draft have naturally been high, but were likely inflated by a late-season scoring surge at the end of the 2012-2013 season, when he scored 11 goals and 15 points in the last 14 games. However, his shooting percentage (21.0%) was unsustainable and, not surprisingly, it regressed last season (to 9.0%) so, even as Yakupov registered more shots on goal per game, he managed only 11 goals and 24 points in 63 games. The 20-year-old has the shot to be a top scoring threat for the Oilers a€“ and ita€?s best for the team if he can start to live up to his potential -- so if Yakupov can find workable chemistry with some of the Oilersa€? other skilled forwards, he could be ready to take off. Elias Lindholm, C, Carolina a€“ The fifth overall pick in 2013, Lindholm had a solid enough rookie year, putting up 21 points in 58 games, spending time midseason with the Swedish National Junior Team. He was already going to be expected to play a significant role for the Hurricanes this year, but with centre Jordan Staal suffering a broken leg, there will be all the more reason for Lindholm to play a bigger role in his second year. Whether Lindholm shifts back to centre or remains on the wing, hea€?s set to play a top-six role for the Hurricanes and for all their shortcomings, that does offer the chance to play with other skilled forwards, so Lindholm will have a chance to build on a rookie season that included a relatively-low (6.8%) on-ice shooting percentage. Sami Vatanen, D, Anaheim a€“ Therea€?s no denying that Vatanen, listed at 5-foot-10, is undersized for an NHL defenceman. Therea€?s also no denying that the Ducks are better when hea€?s in the lineup, yet it hasna€?t been easy for the 23-year-old to hold a regular spot on the Anaheim blueline. He scored 12 points in his last 15 regular-season games last season, but didna€?t get into playoff action until the Ducks were already trailing the Kings, two games to none, in the second round. Forecasting a breakthrough season for Vatanen relies on the Ducks to give him a regular role, and that could be a tad optimistic, but he has the skill to handle a significant role. Others: Brock Nelson, C/LW, N.Y. Islanders; Vladimir Tarasenko, RW, St. Louis; Charlie Coyle, RW, Minnesota; Brandon Saad, LW, Chicago; Chris Kreider, LW, N.Y. Rangers. NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
