People like this are bottom of the barrel people. It’s one thing to shit on the kid in a blog, but to pay six grand for the kids charity then decide to not pay is low. Hopefully someone see’s this story and raises the bid for Jack Hoffman.
Most people would agree with Kobe on this matter. That the Lakers are a better team with Dwight Howard than without him. Personally I think it would be in the Lakers best interest to let him walk. Spend the money elsewhere. The Lakers have a lot of holes moving forward and an aging roster. They will not be serious contenders with or without Dwight Howard, so they might as well save the cash.
Two brothers in Portland claim they were savagely beaten to a pulp by bodyguards of Portland star Damian Lillard for simply taking his picture. If you ask me this whole thing could have been avoided. Just taking a picture of him walking is stupid. It’s a different story if they were to take a picture with Lillard, but just to snap a pic of him walking out of a club, you deserve to be smacked. Here is what the brothers had to say.
Can these two hurry up and get married already. They have already been the subject of marriage rumors, bringing the kids to school seems like a small step in that direction if you ask me.
The 2004 Red Sox team holds a special place in many Sox fans heart. That was the team that came back from a 3-0 deficit to beat the Yankees and go on to win the teams first championship in 86 years.
Everyone has been made very aware of just how lose the clubhouse was under Terry Francona. From chicken and beer to Manny Ramirez, anything was possible.
Now according to a story via Amanda Rykoff of Sports on Earth, Martinez says that the players went as far as to take shots during the playoffs, starting in the series against the Yankees when they were facing elimination. Read more
Fox Sports 1 launches on August 17, and it seems like a legit threat to ESPN. However, ESPN President John Skipper doesn’t seem to threatened by Fox.
“The guys at Fox are smart and we are respectful of what they do but you heard from us a significant level of confidence,” Skipper said. “We like what we have and we like our ability to compete. Two things matter at the end of the day: What is your level of distribution and what subscription fees are you getting from that, and what is the live content that you have to put on that fans want? I would ask everybody writing all of these stories about competition to look at what we actually have and what they actually have before there’s any discussion about a head-to-head competition.”
Skipper makes a good point. While Fox Sports Live very well could challenge SportsCenter, the actual network will have a long way to go. When you take into account all the live programming ESPN has, Fox just can’t compete.
Many of Fox Sports’ rights are also utilized on Fox, not their sports channels, too. They’re not switching NFL to Fox Sports 1, so that doesn’t help as much as it seems. Basically, ESPN wins. People will always watch ESPN, because people will always watch the NBA, NASCAR — all of these 17 million sports that they broadcast.
Not to take anything away from the goal, but what the hell was the goalie doing? He’s a good 15 feet in front of his net. Regardless of the position of the goalie, that was one hell of a shot.
Chad Johnson has had one of the fastest falls from grace in recent memory. From his disastrous stint in New England to being cut from the Dolphins, it’s been one thing after another.
With that said, Chad is now struggling to meet his payments for child support. According to TMZ he pays $5,420 a month (over $65k a year) to one of his baby mamas and in recent court document Chad says “finds himself without a contract and without a team. Simply [I am] unemployed.”
Personally I don’t feel bad for Chad. He made millions playing football and according to him makes $66,000 a month in”self-employment, partnerships, and/or independent contracts.” Just one month of those partnerships would take care of a years worth of child support. Chad is looking like another classic case of an athlete that doesn’t know what to do when they’re done playing football.
Boston Celtics forward Terrence Williams was arrested Monday according to reports. According to The Kent Reporter, Williams was arrested yesterday after threatening his sons mother with a gun.
The victim reported that Williams had arrived to her home to pick up their son. Two began to argue in the parking lot area, and during that argument, the victim reported that Williams brandished a firearm and made threats.
Williams played in 24 games for the Celtics in 2013 and in five of their six postseason games. During the season, he averaged 13.3 minutes per game, 4.6 points per game, 1.8 rebounds per game and 1.6 assists per game. He has a career NBA average of 7.1 points per game.
I’ll believe this when I see it. I feel like Greg Oden is going to turn out to be Brandon Roy 2.0. Knees just don’t get better. However former Ohio State Buckeye and current draft prospect Deshaun Thomas disagrees.
“Man, he looks unbelievable,” he said at the draft combine. “He’s running. He’s lifting weights. You might be seeing a comeback. He looks like he’s ready to go. He’s running, getting in shape. I’ll tell you one thing. For a big 7-footer that’s all he does, running and getting in shape. He’s looking right.”
I hope Greg Oden does come back healthy. It would be very interesting to see how he could do if his body could hold up. Oden is just 25 which is amazing because it feels like he has been around for 10 years now. The news is promising, but everyone should take it with a grain of salt.
