Speedform Apollo Vent Blue . The 20-year-old Pelicans big man glanced up and smiled widely at the well-wishers -- a fitting end to a day he wont soon forget. Davis responded to his selection earlier in the day as a Western Conference All-Star with 26 points and 10 rebounds, and the New Orleans Pelicans overcame a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to defeat the Minnesota Timberwolves 98-91 on Friday night. . The recently retired Stern was elected Friday to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame and will be enshrined with the class of 2014 on Aug. LAS VEGAS -- Jimmie Johnson didnt need to see highlights of his seventh Sprint Cup championship celebration at Homestead-Miami Speedway to tug at his heart during the 2016 awards banquet Friday night.He has a pretty good idea of all that happened.In a certain way I guess I kind of lived it, so I have the fond memories, Johnson said. But I will go back and look at that stuff at some point. I really havent had any time to.For Johnson, it was more about what was said than what he saw during the ceremony at the Wynn Las Vegas that celebrated his record-tying seventh Cup title and a season where he notched his 80th career win. With his name now alongside Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt as far as number of championships, Johnson is a pro at giving the speeches and hearing people talk about him.But it seems that each year, the inflection in the voices of other drivers more and more show their deep respect.The respect that was paid to me through competitors -- theyve got to be tired to see my ass up on the stage, Johnson said after the ceremony. To have them say nice things and to know it was really coming from the heart and not just lip service was really cool.Driver after driver talked about Johnsons greatness. The lauding came from even others, including 23-time Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps.This isnt just another night for our seven-time champion, Phelps said. He set records and now stands alongside two legends. But for him, its more than that. Its a personal glory and the reward for a lifetime of hard work. And for the rest of us, its the knowledge that we just watched the greatest driver that ever lived.Johnson didnt know Phelps -- a Gatorade endorser along with Johnson -- would come. Just 11 days earlier, Johnson had presented Phelps with an award at USA Swimmings annual event.That was a complete and total shock, Johnson said.If anyone should be used to pleasurable shocks, its Johnson. He got one nearly two weeks earlier at Homestead-Miami Speedway. In some ways, his victory in the season finale at Homestead was a shock as Johnson didnt have the strongest car but took advantage of a Carl Edwards-Joey Logano wreck and then a great restart in the waniing laps. Under Armour Outlet. efore the banquet, Johnson had said he had not seen many highlights because he was just so busy. Through social media, he did have an idea of how it all went down.Obviously, I watched the first half of the crash [from behind], Johnson said. I saw a clip on Twitter where the 78 [of Martin Truex Jr.] was just raging on fire, which I didnt think was possible in todays world with our cars but thats really about all I saw.Johnson had seen - on Twitter - that Edwards had gone up on the Logano pit box to wish the team luck.I want to see -- I imagine Carl did an interview, Johnson said. I saw some footage where he walked up on the 22 box and shook their hand, the message being delivered to Joey himself.I thought that was really cool. It was so cool I sent Carl a text and just like, Man, way to handle yourself. Ive seen bits and pieces. I guess I havent been dying to see it because Ive seen enough through 140 characters and 18 seconds of Vine or whatever it ends up being, youve got to piece it together.After the banquet, Johnson said he was surprised to see just how hard a hit Edwards had in that accident.But the other highlights? It was soaking in the words, not the photos.That was insane, Johnson said. A lot of moments, it just kept building. ... It was a great experience.If there was any disappointment for Johnson, it was that host and Johnson friend Jay Mohr didnt rip on him. Mohr just gave Johnson a hug and said how much he liked him.As your friend, Im so proud of you, Mohr said.Johnson said he tried to egg on Mohr, but Mohr kept to the script.He can be really funny and is really funny, Johnson said. He chose a more emotional route and paid me a ton of respect, and I was like, You [wuss]. Tough it up and come after me. It is likely few will blame Mohr as much as Johnson. They know Johnson earned that hug.I just think its so refreshing to see someone that humble that thats good and doesnt have to be cocky, doesnt have to prove anything, team owner Rick Hendrick said of Johnson. He just goes out and does his job. ' ' ' rds.
