There’s no fighting here at Random Sports?? Brooklyn has best backcourt in NBA?? Beezer is happy about Wild?? All this and more in this weeks edition of…
Wow, I finally endorse my own blog. That’s me relaxing at the pool. I don’t know which was worse. The 100 degree temperature or the warm water in the swimming pool. Still had a great time.
Richard Roundtree turned 70 this week. Wow, with that here is the theme to SHAFT.
Wow the Nets have started to make things interesting.
First they announced that they traded for Joe Johnson, the six-time all-star from Atlanta. Brooklyn traded Anthony Morrow, Jordan Farmar, Jordan Williams, Johan Petro, DeShawn Stevenson and the Rockets 2013 lottery protected first round pick to get Johnson. Johnson averaged 17.8 points per game in his 11-year NBA career.
Then the Nets resigned Gerald Wallace on a 4-year deal worth 40 million.
But, the best news was Deron Williams saying he will be signing with the Brooklyn Nets. The three-time All-Star and two-time All-NBA point guard will become the face of the franchise as the Nets move to Brooklyn and into their new palace, the Barclay Center. Williams deal is expected to be $108 million for 5-years.
The Clippers sent Reggie Evans to the Nets, in a sign-and-trade. The rebounding machine will get $5 million over three years.
I am glad the Nets stopped going after D12, and resigned Brook Lopez. Now they can keep their 3 number one picks. A line-up of Joe Johnson, Deron Williams, Gerald Wallace, Brook Lopez and Kris Humphries (hopefully the Nets resign him) would be pretty good.
Do the Nets have the best backcourt in the NBA? There aren’t too many that can match the point output that Johnson and Williams can provide.
There is plenty of player movement in the NBA. When the dust settles on July 11th teams will look a lot different then they did at the end of the 2011-2012 season.
Nash to Lakers. Ray Allen to Heat. Kidd and Cambry to the Knick. Novak resigns with Knicks. Lin-sanity to sign with Houston and Knicks to match.
In the Beezer’s “State of Hockey Wants to Live Up to It’s Name” he toots the horn about the Wild’s signing of the biggest free agents in the NHL Zach Parise and Ryan Suter. The Beeze states “I love this move for Minnesota...I love it for Hockey...The western Conference just got more competitive…”
To see his blog go to this link:
True they needed to do something to “take them over the top.” But to “buy players” to do it. If the Wild win the Stanley Cup will the analysts say they bought the Stanley Cup?
Don’t rush to say no. If the Yankees would have signed “Prince Albert” and Prince Fielder everyone would have said the Yankees bought the World Series. So what’s the difference between what the Wild did or what the Yankees could have done?
I think the NFL came up with the greatest idea this week. They will allow those at NFL games see what the ref is looking at when they go to the replay booth. That’s right, you will be able to see what the lead official is viewing on the sideline monitor. Fans will see the exact same angles at the exact time the ref is viewing it.
Sunday, during the Rangers-Twins game the scariest thing happened. Here is the clip:
You can hear it on the TV. Can you imagine what it sounded like at the Stadium.
You have to see this video of a brawl between two men at a Little League baseball game near Columbus, Georgia. It started when one man asked another man to turn down his music he was playing after the game. First it was words exchanged than it was punches exchanged. The fight was taken from a person at the game.
Sorry for the advertisement. You can skip it after 5 seconds.
Attendance for the 2011 NFL season was the lowest since 2002.
Til next time
