- Anyone who watched last night’s L.A. Vs. OKC game knows what was the highlight drama of the night. Ron Artest…and yes I mean Mr. World Peace himself… was ejected for losing his cool with J. Harden. It was a combination of ego and bad decision-making. With the last game of regular season on Thursday against Sacremento approaching, this could mean a lot of things for overall performance of the Lakers. They could suffer defensively or find a way to reconfigure some plays and make it work. If they work the court like they did last night, however, it’ll be no major loss. What a game!
- MVP: Kobe Bryant or Kevin Durant?? Both equally deserving.
- A few days away from NFL draft and I’m lead to question the motive behind deciding what players to add to a pro roster. To me, many coaches and scouts will have clouded judgement when it comes to drafting new prospects due to how much time the players have to prepare for draft. Pre-draft workouts are conducted under different terms than their regular performance, which can lead to overrated evaluations and blinded judgement. Off season, players like Stephen Gilmore, Corner Back from USC and Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill both have an impeccable performance level to show off, but it’s not the same momentum they maintained during the season. It’s a bit hard to predict what happens at this point, but soon we will find out.
- White Sox’ Philip Humber makes a commendable mark in sports history by notching the 21st perfect game in MLB history. This basically means that in one game, a team must have a record of 27 outs without any hits, runs, or errors. Congratulations to his well-deserved success!!!
