In the months leading up to the 2019 Super Bowl Troy Niklas Color Rush Jersey , some of Atlanta's bare walls will get a makeover.

The city of Atlanta and the Super Bowl Host Committee have partnered with arts group WonderRoot to launch "Off the Wall." The project will create up to 30 murals focusing on Atlanta's past, present and future role in civil and human rights. The murals will transform the city in hopes of sparking a community-wide conversation, said Brett Daniels, chief operating officer of the host committee.

The initiative was announced Thursday at a press conference in front of a mural of civil rights giant U.S. Rep. John Lewis. Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms noted the importance of the location: The mural is close the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church where the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. once preached. The streets surrounding the mural were the birthplace of Atlanta's civil rights movement, Bottoms said.

"Quite often art is a conversation starter," Bottoms said.

Although the Super Bowl is a one-time event in Atlanta, those involved with Off the Wall hope the event leaves an enduring legacy. In recent years, street art has popped up throughout the city. By focusing on human and civil rights as the content of the murals, Off the Wall hopes to create lasting conversations about issues affecting the city.

"There is no greater legacy than Atlanta's contributions to the civil rights movement," WonderRoot executive director Chris Appleton said.

The artwork will begin appearing in the city this fall. A subcommittee is scouting locations and talent to produce the work Falcons Ito Smith Jersey , but officials said some of the murals will be downtown. Freedom University, an initiative that provides college prep and other services for immigrant students in the country illegally, will help in both the creation and installation of the art.

"Young people in this city have been leading the way for human rights," Freedom University executive director Laura Emiko Soltis said. She said they were "standing on the shoulders of giants," referencing leaders such as Lewis.

NFL players have sparked controversy and drawn criticism from President Donald Trump and some members of the public for kneeling during the national anthem. Although inspired by the way people are using their spotlight to promote human rights, Off the Wall was in the works before the anthem protests, Appleton said. The project has the support of the NFL, according to Daniels.

"This project was inspired by the way artists and other activists struggle for justice and equality for all," Appleton said, calling protests a powerful way to transform communities.


The Miami Heat went to Philadelphia to open their first-round series of the NBA playoffs, and coach Erik Spoelstra’s team did what they always do.

Get a win after losing Game 1.

Miami ran its record to 7-0 in Game 2 contests after being down 1-0 in a series under Spoelstra by beating the 76ers 113-103 on Monday to even the series at 1-1 Cheap Pernell McPhee Jersey , shifting home-court advantage to the No. 6-seeded Heat.

With the Heat returning to South Beach for Game 3 on Thursday in much better spirits than after Saturday’s Game 1 drubbing, much of the credit for Miami’s surge falls squarely on Dwyane Wade, who was discarded by the Cleveland Cavaliers in their run-up to the playoffs and gridded as the second-worst jump shooter in the NBA this season.

Wade outscored Philadelphia 21-20 in the final 15 minutes of the first half. Then, after a 21-7 run by the Sixers cut Miami’s lead to a perilous two points, Spoelstra put Wade back on the court in the final minutes, and the Chicago native stepped through a portal and went back in time.

Wade stealthily swooped in on Dario Saric and hacked the ball away for a steal, then scored on a breakaway dunk. Wade then passed to a slashing James Johnson for a dunk on the next possession. Then came an offensive rebound that led to a jumper by Goran Dragic and, finally, Wade’s own long shot — a 23-foot dagger over Philly’s star rookie Ben Simmons — that iced the game.

Not too shabby for a 36-year-old near the end of his Hall of Fame career.

Wade’s numbers completely belied his age. In 26 minutes off the bench, Wade totaled 28 points on 11-of-16 shooting, seven rebounds Authentic Paul Worrilow Jersey , three assists and two steals. He also posted a game-best plus-16 rating.

“I don’t care what his numbers were anywhere else or all year long or at different times. He’s (made) for these moments,” said Spoelstra, whose team won a road game in their 19th straight series, dating to 2011.

Philadelphia was riding a 27-point blowout win in Game 1 and a 17-game winning streak, including 11 straight at home.

However, Wade proved to be too much for the Sixers to overcome. And coach Brett Brown knows his team, which has played both games without injured All-Star center Joel Embiid, must prepare for the energy and production Wade provides off the Heat bench.

“There was a rhythm and a calmness to his game like he didn’t feel too much. And there was a real confidence the way he played to make those shots. That is classic Dwyane Wade,” Brown said to the media after the loss.

“Dwyane’s steal changed the game. If you were to pick one defining moment, one defining play, I think it was that.”

Embiid Authentic Antonio Callaway Jersey , who is out with an orbital fracture, was frustrated by being kept out of the Sixers’ lineup again, and a serious question remains if he will be able to play in Game 3.

He posted an Instagram story Monday saying he was “sick and tired of being babied,” and the Heat’s aggressive style and defense intensified without Embiid in the lineup.

“There’s a way you have to play in the NBA playoffs from a toughness standpoint and a physicality standpoint, and that was shown tonight,” Brown said of the Heat’s effort in Game 2.

“To me, (this game was) the reality of NBA basketball, and it only gets harder. This game equals the NBA playoffs.”
