If you have been watching the Miami Heat over the past few years, like must of us have, then you know that when it comes to Dwayne Wade playing, you just never know what to expect. Not taking away from his game at all but he has missed more than a few games in the past years.
New England Patriots quarterback was noticeably missing from the White House ceremony on Thursday. President Barack Obama honored the New England Patriots for winning the SuperBowl. Supposedly, Tom Brady was unable to attend due to a prior family commitment. This didn’t sit too well with ESPN analyst Stephen A. Smith; during his show “The Stephen A. Smith Show” expressed his views.
Rob Dyrdek used a very creative way to propose to his girlfriend, Bryiana Noelle. He got help from Disney and the Aladdin cast putting on a show to make his proposal part of the show and she never saw it coming. It is a good day for Rob because Bryiana is on another level and the former playboy model’s pics will attest to that. Congrats to the couple. Make sure you check out some pics of Bryiana in the gallery.
The copy cats have already started after a video was shared earlier today of Lebron throwing a basketball like a quarterback from one end of the court directly into the other basket…swish! Dwight Howard took the challenge and posted a video of him doing the same thing with a backpack on at the Mavericks arena as the Rockets were finishing up practice. For the record Lebron did it better because of the way he threw it. Both of these guys are in good spirits because they are both up 3-0 in their respective playoff series so having a little fun at practice isn’t a big deal.
Back in early March, TMZ reported that Chris Johnson, formerly with the New York Jets, was shot in the shoulder in a drive by in Florida that left one man dead. He has since recovered and has hopes of getting picked up by a team.
Kawhi Leonard’s stock is going UP and everyone is taking notice. He was named the defensive player of the year for this season and is poised to become a perennial all star and one of the best overall players in the league period. The Spurs organization is one of the smarter ones in sports and according to reports they have no plans to low ball Kawhi this summer and in fact will offer him the max deal on the very first day of free agency.
Following the bench-clearing brawl between the Kansas City Royals & Chicago White Sox on Thursday, Royals right-hander Yordano Ventura was dealt the harshest punishment, as the 23-year-old received a seven-game suspension from the league Saturday. Royals pitcher Edinson Volquez was suspended five games, while outfielder Lorenzo Cain and reliever Kelvin Herrera got two-game suspensions. White Sox starters Chris Sale and Jeff Samardzija were each given five-game suspensions.
We gotta wonder sometimes if Lebron is even human. Some of the things he does athletically at his size aren’t even fair and this is another prime example. The Cavs are in Boston and looking to sweep the Celtics, but during some down time, Bron is throwing shots up that resemble his old Powerade commercials, except this was real! Lebron took the ball and threw it quarterback style from one end of the court to the other basket and the result was nothing but net! Sounds like someone owes him some money too for betting he couldn’t do it. I can’t think of anyone else in the league who could make this shot look so easy.
Amid a rough season where the Chicago Bulls seemed to lose a cog in their rotation every other week, they found a way to make the playoffs as the 2nd seed. Yet, according to people close to Tom Thibodeau, he expects to be fired at the end of the season. Being a coach in the NBA seems to be a tough job considering Scott Brooks was also fired after a string of long playoff runs.
