Have to give credit to Spurs coach, Gregg Popovich. Despite his team basically being ran out of the building by the OKC Thunder and watching their season end, coach Pop was in a better than expected mood post game. Maybe it’s something that comes with time and being in the playoffs as much as he has, that you know sometimes you are going to take the loss while someone else celebrates. The Spurs have damn sure been on that celebrating side plenty of times in the past fifteen years but OKC may have put an end to that era last night. While that part remains to be seen, Coach Pop was still exactly who he always is, even having fun with a reporter.
Ernest Wallace, the man who police say was with Aaron Hernandez the night he shot and killed his friend, Odin Lloyd, was found not guilty of the murder charge itself but was convicted of being an accessory to the act. Hernandez as you already know is serving life in prison after he was convicted last year.
Joe Pytka directed the 1996 blockbuster version of “Space Jam” which of course starred Michael Jordan and did serious numbers at the box office. Whether it’s hate or just some insight from someone who has been through it, Pytka is saying “Space Jam 2” essentially has no chance to succeed and they should drop the idea before it’s really too late. Well damn!
Adrien Broner’s troubles aren’t going anywhere, in fact they may just be getting started. He is fresh off a win in the ring from back at the beginning of April but police believe he is about to take a loss in the courtroom as they released the video they say proves Broner did in fact rob a man at gunpoint after losing money to the man inside while making bets on bowling.
OK, so either Floyd Mayweather and his camp, along with Conor McGregor and his team are trying to pull off the biggest troll job we’ve seen in a while, or there just might be some substance to the reports that these two will eventually get in the ring. Even though Amir Khan and Canelo Alvarez are fighting as I type this, Floyd was still in high demand tonight and was asked about fighting McGregor and his reply damn sure didn’t sound like it was all hype and exaggerations.
Jordan Parsons, a Bellator MMA star, sadly passed away on May 4th after he succumbed to injuries he suffered as the result of a hit & run on the night of May 1st. It took police a few days to investigate and thankfully they have apprehended the man they say is responsible for the cowardly act.
The Lebron James family is officially in on the running man challenge but papa James had to sit this one out because well, you know he is kind of dealing with an important basketball series down in Atlanta. No worries though, because his sons, Lebron Jr (Bronny) and youngest son Bryce held it down for dad and the family. Bryce clearly was having way more fun with it than Bronny and I’m sure there will be a time in the future when we are seeing their faces all the time because they are both on their way to becoming stars on the court in their own right.
Former Notre Dame running back and current University of Alabama Birmingham running back, Greg Bryant Jr, is in very serious condition after he and his friend were found in a car on the side of I-95 in Florida with multiple gun shot wounds.
The sports world went crazy yesterday when reports said that Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor were working towards a mega fight later this year in Vegas. It would be a dream fight for fans but with Conor under contract with UFC and the two different styles of fighting, most people believed the reports were baseless. In a twist however, Floyd’s dad is claiming that his son has been talking to him about making something happen with an MMA fighter and that it could happen before the end of this year!
Ever since Kevin Durant’s career began with the Seattle Supersonics back in 2007, his mother Wanda has been a fixture at his games. We started to notice her much more when the Sonics moved to OKC and became the Thunder but she really became famous in her own right after Kevin’s MVP speech in 2014, when he referred to his mom as “The Real MVP”. It made you want to call your own mother and let her know how much she has done for you and it was a moment in the world of sports we will never forget. Now KD’s words are being used as the title of a movie about his wonderful mother.
