The Eastern Conference Champion winner will be…

Milan Lucic called the Penguins “the Miami Heat of the NHL.” The Pittsburgh Penguins are loaded with stars. The best hockey player in the world is Sydney Crosby. Evgeni Malkin is one of the top 5 players in the world. Defenseman Kris Letang is a Norris Trophy finalist. James Neal is an NHL star. Jarome […]

Flopping in the NBA…

The NBA (National Basketball Association) should be careful with the Flopping becoming an epidemic.  The Heat’s Shane Battier, LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, Norris Cole and even Ray Allen are all flopping to get some calls from the referees.  The reaction to contact is so overblown with players falling backwards to the ground on the defensive end […]

Could the NHL see a Black player be…

The number #1 in the NHL draft will be between African-American Seth Jones (defenseman) and Canadian Nathan McKinnon (forward). The Colorado Avalanche has the number #1 pick in the draft. The Avalanche has a solid nucleus of forwards from previous drafts: Matt Duchene, Gabriel Landeskog, and Ryan O’Reilly. They need a big defenseman (like Jones) who can […]

Nerlens Noel needs to get bigger…

Nerlens Noel hurt his knee and hasn’t been playing basketball for a few months. Despite his knee injury, Noel should have taken the time to work on developing his upper body. He showed up to the NBA Draft combines to do his interviews at 6’11” and 205 pounds. He is super thin. Scouts in the […]

Blue Jays should move Lawrie to second…

The Toronto Blue Jays should move Brett Lawrie to second base now. The switch from third to second base would help offensively and defensively. The move would help him offensively because it would get Lawrie’s mind off his .180 batting average. As a second baseman, a player is involved in many defensive plays where he […]

N. Robinson and J.R. Smith are NBA free agents…

The NBA free agency will have two players who had a little bit of success in the NBA and who will try to parlay that into long-term contracts. Nate Robinson is the biggest surprise in the NBA playoffs–a player who averaged 25 minutes and 13 points a game during the regular season. Coach Thibodeau had […]

Kevin Durant is a class act…

Kevin Durant donates $1 million dollars to the Red Cross to help with Oklahoma disaster relief. He did it on his own without being asked. The Durant Family Foundation sent the funds to the Red Cross.  Too often we see athletes not helping their communities unless it is a mandate from the team or unless […]

Patrick Roy will be named Avalanche Coach…

When Joe Sakic became vice-president of Colorado Avalanche hockey operations it was just a matter of time before Patrick Roy would be offered the head coaching job. Roy has coached the Quebec Remparts of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League since 2005. His team won 1 memorial championship. Roy is an intense individual who will […]

The Spurs are up 2 – 0 …

A follower has reminded me that I picked the Grizzlies to win in 7.  This person didn’t leave a comment when I made the prediction. Now his Spurs are up 2 – 0, it is gloating time. The Grizzlies haven’t played a home game yet. Games 3 and 4 will be played in Memphis. If […]

Bryan Colangelo will remain with MLSE…

The announcement will come soon that Bryan Colangelo will no longer be President and General Manager, but he will be given a new role with the Toronto Raptors. He has been with the Raptors since 2006. He won executive of the year in 2007 and the Raptors made the playoffs during his first two seasons […]
