LaMelo Ball defends his daddy

Lavar Ball has been making some headline grabbing comments over the past few weeks. Because of these comments, many have criticized Lavar.  Ball’s son LaMelo decided to defend his daddy. LaMelo, who once dropped 92 points in a high school game, went to Twitter to support his father:

Some kids unfortunately do not have fathers, but Lavar is probably talking just a little too much. I just hope it does not affect his kids in the future.

Dana White on Mayweather-McGregor: ‘I do think it will happen’

UFC president Dana White believes the Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor fight will happen. On Wednesday, White went on the talk show “Conan” with Conan O’Brien to talk about it:

“I think it’s going to be a tough deal, because obviously a lot of egos involved in this deal and a lot of people, so that always makes it tougher. On the flip side, there’s so much money involved. I just don’t see how it doesn’t happen,” White told O’Brien.

White said the fight would be a boxing match.

There is too much money to be made for this fight not to happen. Dana White, Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor all want to get paid. Will it be competitive? Probably not, but it most definitely will sell!

Tebow’s big day!

Tim Tebow had a very good day. He went 2-3 at the plate and had a great catch in the field. To date, Tebow is batting .214(3-14),  all three of his hits were singles. This could be his last day with the big club. According to reports, Tebow might be playing the rest of the exhibition season with the minor league team.

Hate him or love him, Tebow moves the needle. I hope his baseball dreams come true!

Tebow discusses his big day below:

Darelle Revis in the clear; expressed interest in the Steelers

Free agent corner Darelle Revis is in the clear. The judge in his case dismissed all the charges stemming from a brawl that happened in Pittsburgh. Revis, who was charged with two felony counts of aggravated assault, one felony count each of robbery and conspiracy, and a misdemeanor count of terroristic threats, can breathe easy now.

With the legal troubles behind him, Revis can now focus on his NFL future. Revis has expressed an interest in the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Revis is from Aliquippa, PA, and attended University of Pittsburgh.

 

 

Are the Lakers tanking?

The Los Angeles Lakers are a franchise in transition. Now, it appears they are flat out tanking. According to reports, the Lakers have decided to shut down F Luol Deng and C Timofey Mozgov for the final 15 games of the season.  One reason the  Lakers might be tanking is their first-round pick in the 2017 draft is top three protected.  Therefore, if the pick goes below three, the pick goes to the 76ers. That would be a killer for the Lakers. Currently, the Lakers have the second worst record in the NBA.

I believe this a wise decision. You have to protect your assets.  For now, the young guys play and develop. More importantly,  you try to ensure you get a top three pick in the 2017 NBA Draft. Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka have a lot of work to do to get this team back to respectability. We’ll see if they can get it done.

For now, I say tank on Lakers!!

 

 

Ball home burglarized

According to TMZ Sports, Lavar Ball’s home was burglarized while he was at his boys’ high school basketball game.

TMZ reports, that Ball’s neighbors heard noise and ultimately called the cops. The police arrived quickly, and when they arrived some of the family’s belongings were in the middle of the house. Thank God for the quick police response.

Lavar Ball has been everywhere. Everyday there seems to be a different story about him.

The good about this story is no one was hurt!

 

Darko Milicic was drinking before practice!

Darko Milicic was a bust. That might be put it kindly. He was not very good. In the 2003 NBA Draft, the Pistons had an opportunity to get Carmelo Anthony, Chris Bosh, or Dwyane Wade, but they chose the then 17-year old Serbian forward. He supposed to be the next big thing. Turns out that was not the case, and we may have found out why.  Milicic, 31, told the website B92, which was translated by Reddit, the struggles he had in the NBA.

“I’d do a lot of things differently now. It’s true that I ended up on a team that was trying to win a ring, which rarely happens to a #2 pick, but in the end, we’re all looking for alibis. I could say i didn’t get a proper chance. However, that’s simply an alibi; it’s up to a young player to prove himself, work hard and wait for his chance. My approach was completely different, as a #2 pick coming from Europe I thought I was sent by God. So I got into fights, got drunk before practices, spiting everyone, while in the end, I was spiting myself.”

 

Wow, drunk before practice! He thought he was sent by God? It seems ego got the best of Milicic. Today, the 350 pound Milicic is a farmer in Serbia.

“I’ve gained 90 pounds since I stopped playing, I’m at 350 right now. I’m working at my farm and enjoying that kind of production. I take walks through my fields and watch the process, which makes me really happy. I’m still pretty inexperienced at this so I like to learn, seek guidance, go to seminars. I’ve created my own peace of mind and I’m enjoying it. There’s always problems like in any other field of work, but I’d rather do this than build skyscrapers in the city because I’d end up shooting myself. I think this is the most positive story of them all, food production and food in general is the future in every sense.

If the Pistons would have drafted Melo, Bosh, or Wade, one championship could have easily been two or three!

 

Westbrook gets triple-double number 33

The Russell Westbrook triple-double show made a stop in Brooklyn last night; he messed around and got triple-double number 33. OKC defeated the Nets 122-104. Westbrook stat line was 25pts, 12 rebs and 19 assts. The Thunder are 27-6 when Westbrook messes around and gets a triple-double. In order for Westbrook to finish the season averaging a triple-double and being at 30ppg, he would need to average 21.8 ppg, 8.8 apg, and 7.5 rpg. Can he do it? I think he will.

If he finishes the season averaging a triple-double, he has to be the MVP.  I just can’t see how he could not be the MVP. What’s happening here is historic. This achievement warrants the MVP!

We’ll see if the MVP voters agree!

Le’Veon Bell comes for Lavar Ball!

Coming off groin surgery, Steelers’ RB Le’Veon Bell had a little extra time on his hands, so Bell took to Twitter to slam Lavar Ball for saying that he could beat Michael Jordan 1 on 1.    Ball, who is the father of UCLA’s Lonzo Ball, averaged 2.2 ppg at Washington State back in 1988.

I hope Lavar is enjoying his 15 minutes!
