Embiid out indefinitely

“Trust the Process!” It is getting harder for 76ers fans to keep the faith. First, Ben Simmons was ruled out for the year because his foot is not fully healed.(more on him in a moment) Now, Joel Embiid is out indefinitely with swelling and soreness in the knee. He is scheduled for a MRI. The 76ers should not rush him back. Actually, they should even think about just shutting him down for the year.   Also, Ben Simmons had a procedure on his foot to help with healing.

“The Quad” Kevin Savage: “I auditioned for three different roles, and actually did not get any of the three roles”

There has been a lot of buzz about BET’s hit show “The Quad.” It is a show about football, HBCU college life and so much more! Actor Kevin Savage joined Go4it’s Paul Gant to discuss the show. Savage tells a story about how he auditioned three times for other roles on the show before he landed the role of Terrance. “When I auditioned for “The Quad” I auditioned for three different roles and actually did not get any of the three roles I auditioned for,” said Savage.  “They called and said hey you’re booked, but you booked the quarterback role. I said okay cool lets do it! Who does not want to play a quarterback on a TV show.”  

 Along the way, Savage had to work hard in order to successfully play a quarterback on TV. “When I got out there and threw the ball they were like, okay he is clearly not a quarterback. Embarrassing! It was humbling at the same time, but I got the chance to work on it in between the pilot and when we actually started shooting the series. So when I came back man my arm was a lot better and we got it in.”

Make sure you check Kevin and rest of the cast of “The Quad” on BET!

Pelicans 0-3 since Cousins’ trade

Pelicans are now 0-3 since trading for DeMarcus Cousins. Concern? It has only been three games, and it will take time for everybody to get comfortable. End of the day, many were quick to crown the Pelicans as the number eight seed in the Western Conference. I was hoping the Pels would get the eighth seed, so they we could see how their size would matchup against the Warriors. At this point, the Pelicans are 3.5 behind the eighth seeded Nuggets with 22 games to play. Good news is they have three games left against the Nuggets; bad news is they have to jump four teams.

Pick it up Pelicans! Pick it up!

LaMelo and LiAngelo Ball miss 33 threes in one game!

We been hearing a lot about the Ball brothers( LiAngelo and LaMelo) and most of it has been good. What happened Friday was a different story. LaMelo Ball missed not 1, not 2, but 20 three-point attempts, and his brother LiAngelo was not much better missing 13 three-point attempts. That is a combined 33 misses from downtown!

These misses led to their high school team Chino Hill being ousted by Mater Dei in the California Interscholastic Federation Southern Section playoffs.

Good news is brother Lonzo Ball is still doing big things at UCLA, and could be the number one pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.

Pacquiao-Khan is on!

According to Amir Khan and Manny Pacquiao’s Twitter pages, Pacquaio and Khan will be fighting on April 23rd.

Location is undetermined at this time, but earlier reports indicated that it could be in UAE.

This is going to be a fun fight! In my Bart Scott voice: “Can’t wait!”

Patriots’ Nate Ebner: “We just kind of wore them(Falcons) down”

After being down 28-3 in the third quarter of Super Bowl 51, the Patriots stormed back and took the game to overtime. At that point, Patriots’ safety Nate Ebner felt New England had the Falcons right where they wanted them. Ebner, in an interview with Go4it host Paul Gant, felt the Patriots were in a good shape once they received the ball first in overtime:

“I mean when we won the toss, with the momentum that we had, I think a lot of us would say there was no doubt we were going to go down and score,” said Ebner. “We were prepared to fight for however long it took. Obviously the offense took care of business, and the way they started moving the ball we just kind of wore them down, and it was just too much for them to handle.”

Make Vince Great Again?

Former NFL quarterback Vince Young is attempting a comeback. According to his agent Leigh Steinberg, Young has been in talks with the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the CFL, and apparently there is some interest from the new Spring League.  Also, Young has a trademark application out there for the slogan “Make Vince Great Again.”

I’m not sure at 34 Young can be great again, but I am rooting for the guy.  Canada is a good start, and who knows what could happen from there!
