When youre at the top, youre everyones target.After taking the title at Frankfurt and Manila, OG has set a strong case for being one of the best teams in Dota 2. The two-time Major-winning squad is bootcamping for a run at the Aegis, and as team coach Sébastien 7ckngMad Debs puts it, all eyes are on OG.Winning two Majors definitely builds up some confidence, but it also makes you a target. Everyone looks at you through a lens, said 7ckngMad. [The International] will be way rougher than the two Majors before.Even with the higher level of competition, toppling the mean green will not be easy. Many have tried and failed; Team Liquid, Wings Gaming, Newbee, Vici.Gaming Reborn, almost every top team has been shown the exit by OG. Even those who take out OG have trouble replicating the victory, as the team adapts and returns stronger than ever.This is a team that has stood the test of time, endured drought seasons and reaped the rewards. For many members of OG, this is not their first time competing for Dota 2s most coveted prize pool, but this is the first time theyve come in as the favorites. Johan n0tail Sundstein has seen several TIs, through the viewpoint of several teams, but this time is different.I would prefer not to be the favorites going into a tournament, but this is the first time that I can say that I have a chance to win a TI, said n0tail. That is more motivation than Ive ever had before.The many-faced teamIts difficult to pinpoint the most effective cog in the OG machine. Other teams rely on single players, explosive playmakers who set the tempo and lead the team. Yet OG doesnt seem to rely on the same factors. Each time one player falters, gets focused in lane or harassed out of any farm, others instantly pick up the slack.Amer Miracle- Barqawi tends to be most obvious choice for teams to focus their aggression on. A 9000 MMR mid laner, Miracle- has shown proficiency across a breadth of heroes, from meta picks like Tinker to pocket strats in Medusa or Axe. Teams often focus on the shut down Miracle- approach, yet this tactic doesnt seem to faze him in the slightest.If Im focused [on], my team sometimes tries to make space for me to catch up, said Miracle-. Its not good for opponents to focus me because my team will just have a free game.This is where players like n0tail step in, as he has found new rhythm in his carry role on OG. On Terrorblade alone, n0tail averages 661 gold-per-minute, and he boasts impressive stats across a wide range of carries, from Juggernaut to Naga Siren and Drow Ranger.If it isnt the danger of Miracle- getting out of control, its n0tail, or offlaner David Moon Tan, or even a support like Andreas Cr1t- Nielsen getting too much space to make plays happen across the map. Captain and drafter Tal Fly Aizik notes the flexibility of his team to move from comfort picks to necessary counters.When you draft for your team, its important to keep in mind what heroes you are comfortable with, said Fly. But as a top team, you should be able to integrate heroes youve rarely practiced as well, if the situation calls for it.Band of brothersIts all in the camaraderie of OG, an inherent trust these five players have built up with each other. The Dota scene has rarely been known for its stability, and past years have often been plagued with roster swaps and players constantly moving on to new pastures. This OG squad has stuck it out though, from a surprise Frankfurt win through a dry winter spell, and back on through to Manila.Now, with The International and over $18 million in prize money ahead, is when the loyalty pays dividends.If you believe in your team, the players you have, and you have trust in one another, its good to stick together because that means well have experienced the lows, said Fly. If you are able to rise from that youll be that much stronger. Teams that are only together for half a year might not have gone through the lows yet and those obstacles might happen during the most important tournament of the year. They might not be able to bounce back from that.Moon expressed similar sentiments about players and teams that often struggle to stay in one place for long.As for other teams, there are some players out there who just cant make it, not because of their skill, but because they cannot work well with certain people, said Moon. That is what I think is a core issue in other teams.This is not a problem for OG, though, as this talented group of players hasnt just found a common standing in skill, but in personality. At tournaments like The Summit, its easy to see how this group gets along, and how its managed to turn that into success.Seattle calling7ckngMad told us the atmosphere of their TI bootcamp is slightly different, yet similar to the teams preparations for the Manila Major.I think that if it is different, its on a personal level for each and every one of us, more than as a team, said 7ckngMad. Its always fun, according to the team coach, but the team has been picking up steam.Every day that passes, the hype is increasing, 7ckngMad says. You can tell that were getting there.Theres still obstacles on the road, though. A recent appearance at The Summit 5 saw OG miss the grand finals of a tournament for the first time since Epicenter in May. Both times, it was at the hands of a Chinese squad: in May, Newbee, and at The Summit, Wings Gaming. When asked which teams the mean green is keeping an eye on, Fly was clear on who the teams greatest competitors would be.Right now, Liquid, Newbee and Wings seem like the top competition for us, said Fly. 7ckngMad echoed an obvious wariness of the top teams, but both captain and coach had a second list of blind spots they were watching.Personally, Im interested in keeping an eye on the question marks, such as Secret and EG, mainly, said 7ckngMad.Its no question teams have their eyes set on OG. There is no doubt OG is a team that can take the title for the first time, as a team built solely on the talent and cohesion of five players.At the end of the day, it doesnt matter, said 7ckngMad. The only team we truly have to keep an eye on is ourselves.Jahlil Okafor Pelicans Jersey .

Brandon Ingram Jersey . Just as Montreal was settling into the first full working week of a new year, the Impact announced the appointment of their new head coach. FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Former NFL star Chad Johnson was sentenced Monday to 30 days in jail for a probation violation in a domestic violence case by a judge who angrily rejected a no-jail plea deal after Johnson playfully slapped his lawyer on the backside in court. Johnson, known as Chad Ochocinco -- his jersey number in Spanish -- during his playing days, had reached a deal with prosecutors calling for community service and counselling instead of jail. Broward County Circuit Judge Kathleen McHugh said she would tack on an additional three months probation because Johnson had failed to meet with his probation officer during three previous months. It was all set until Johnson, when asked by McHugh if he was satisfied with his lawyer Adam Swickle, gave the attorney a light swat on the rear -- as football players routinely do to each other on the field. The courtroom erupted in laughter and at that McHugh said she wouldnt accept the deal. "I dont know that youre taking this whole thing seriously. I just saw you slap your attorney on the backside. Is there something funny about this?" McHugh said, slapping the plea deal document down on her desk. "The whole courtroom was laughing. Im not going to accept these plea negotiations. This isnt a joke." Johnson, 35, tried to apologize and insisted he meant no disrespect. Johnson was on probation after pleading no contest to head-butting his then-wife, TV reality star Evelyn Lozada, during an altercation last August. She quickly filed for divorce after barely a month of marriage and Johnson, a six-time Pro Bowl wide receiver, was immediately released by the Miami Dolphins.dddddddddddd He didnt play at all last season. "This is your courtroom. I have no intent to make this a joke. Its not funny," Johnson told the judge "My life is in a shambles right now and I try my best to laugh and keep a smile on my face." But McHugh, who could have given Johnson up to a year in jail, was not moved. "Its not the first time hes behaved that way in my courtroom," she said. Johnson then was handcuffed and hauled away to jail. Swickle declined comment on whether he would seek a reduced sentence. Johnson has been undergoing therapy aimed at helping people involved in domestic violence but has not signed with another NFL team. He said in court Monday he hoped that would change in the upcoming football season, but now faces another setback. "He has suffered. He has lost everything," Swickle told the judge. Johnson, whose best playing days were with the Cincinnati Bengals, caught 766 passes for more than 11,000 yards and 67 touchdowns during his career. He also played for the New England Patriots. Lozada stars on VH-1s "Basketball Wives" TV show. She was previously engaged to ex-NBA star Antoine Walker, who played for the Miami Heat, Boston Celtics and other teams, and was a star on the University of Kentuckys 1996 national championship team.
