Last night’s NBA draft was very deep and fun to watch. The teams made moves for future stars and increased their playoff chances. From #1-#60, these players can make one of the best classes ever. Unlike last year when 2nd rd. talent was found in the 1st. 1st rd. talent was all-around. Here is a little recap… Yes, the “future LeBron” coming out of high school, Andrew Wiggins was chosen #1 by the Cavs, just like LeBron before his trip to south beach. If we talk about these LeBron F.A rumors it will take forever. Anyway, Wiggins has potential and is playing now for a young team with tons of potential. We’ll this may get LeBron to come back to Cleveland. Good start for the Cavs… We had some crazy trades in this draft, the hat switching was crazy. But 1 trade stood out above others, the Shabazz Napier trade. Napier coming off of his 2nd championship with UConn was selected by the Charlotte Hornets (You read that right), that would make a reunion of 2 UConn PG’s from the 1st championship, Kemba Walker. I was psyched after this pick and was excited for this young talented team. Plus I LOVE their new jerseys and logo as a logo freak. Back to the trade, he was traded to the MIAMI HEAT for the rights to future picks (they were...Read More

The Uruguay national team may have beat Italy 1-0 in an exciting game but this game was full of controversy… Uruguay star Luis Suarez was caught yet again for biting an opponent. Usually players have problems like hitting or injuries, but Suarez bites? This is the 3rd incident of the star player biting opponents when he but an opponent on Ajax in a fight and in Liverpool when he bit a player on Chelsea. He received lengthy suspensions/fines for those incidents. Now he may cost Uruguay the World Cup by sitting for the whole tourney. For yesterday’s bite, Suarez was not penalized, but Fifa knows what they need to do thats best which is suspend him. Suarez and the Uruguay coach had comments on the bite that just made this mess worse by trying to defend themselves. This investigation is ongoing, crazy, and yes, it is spreading ALL OVER social media… World Cup update- Greece 2 – Ivory Coast 1 : Greeks advance on GW penalty kick in box… Colombia 4 – Japan 1 Italy 0 – Uruguay 1 Costa Rica 0- England 0 – England lowest pt total in their World Cup history (1)… Knockout Rd. – *= 1 more game (current position) Brazil Mexico Netherlands Chile Columbia Greece Costa Rica Uruguay France * Ecuador * Argentina * Nigeria * Germany * USA * Belgium * Algeria * NBA-...Read More
3 time Cy Young award winner Clayton Kershaw threw 0 no hitters until last night when he shut down the Rockies to 0 hits and 1 baserunner on a Hanley Ramirez throwing error. He also struck out 15 batters, a career high. While his 107 pitch performance was going on, the Dodgers scored 8 runs. A great performance for Kershaw, his magical run is just at it’s peak… For the Mets, they finally beat the Cardinals 3-2 yesterday. Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon looks like he’s in a “back to the future” movie with the way he’s pitching. Now 7-5 on the year, Colon went 8 innings strong with 1 K and 4 hits allowed. Dana Eveland got the save. Eric Young jr. had a big day at the plate going 2-4 with a run and 2 rbi’s batting leadoff. The Mets and Zach Wheeler will face the fish tonight at 7:10. News- Mets promote Kirk Nieuwenhuis to majors Demote Matt Den Dekker to Las Vegas 51’s...Read More
Mexico Goalkeeper Gullimero Ochoa played so good against Brazil yesterday, they might as well changed Ochoa to “0choa!” Yes, Ochoa shut out a powerful Brazil squad in gm. 2 of their 2014 world cup. Neymar had some terrific shots on goal for Brazil, but Ochoa saved ALL OF THEM! You got to check this keeper out! Ochoa remarked after the game ” It was the match of my life”. We’ll, he’s right, even Mexico coach Miguel Herrera called him the “hero” of the match. What a game for Ochoa and Mexico to tie up Brazil with 4 points for 1st place in Group...Read More
The San Antonio Spurs defeated the Miami Heat 104-87 to secure their 5th franchise title. Kawhi Leonard won finals MVP after 3 AMAZING games coming back from a slow start. In game 5, he scored 22 points, 10 boards, 2 assists and a block and steal. Leonard (22) is the 2nd youngest player to win Finals MVP since the great Magic Johnson did with his legendary Lakers. This will be an important mark in Leonard’s career because when the Spurs big 3’s playing days are over, Leonard must step in and control this prestigious franchise. Patty Mills is also a rising star to come, he scored 17 points last night on 6-10 FG’s and made 5 threes. When Tony Parker’s days are over, he will step in as a big time player. Manu Ginobili may now play the 6th man role as a veteran to the rising star Danny Green, but he steeped up big this series. Last night, he had 19 points and 4 rebounds and assists. Another talk of the Series is Boris Diaw who had a terrific series in the starting PF role. Diaw, a really big guy looks like a big, slow guy. But he really is and athletic fast moving and thinking PF. He had 9 rebounds and 6 assists adding to 6 points in the game. Tony Parker had 16 points and Tim...Read More
