Porter-Berto announced

A fight that had been talked about for awhile now has become official. Shawn Porter and Andre Berto will fight on April 22 at the Barclays Center.The welterweight clash will air on Showtime.

Both Berto and Porter make exciting fights. I believe Porter’s size and strength might be too much for Berto, but time will be the judge of that.

I know for sure the fans will go home happy!

Barnes back to the Warriors

Today is a good day to be Matt Barnes. Needing a player to replace Kevin Durant the Warriors signed forward Matt Barnes. Obviously you can’t replace Durant unless Lebron is coming through that door, but in Barnes you get a guy who can defend, shoot a little, and give you solid minutes.  Plus, Barnes now has a legitimate shot to win a NBA title.

Mayweather Promotions signs another prospect

Super Flyweight prospect Dylan Price(1-0, 1 KO) of Sicklerville, New Jersey, has signed a promotional deal with Mayweather Promotions. Price, 18 years-old, turned professional with a 1st round stoppage over Malcolm Speight on February 4th in Wilson, North Carolina
“I want to first thank my Lord and savior Jesus Christ for blessing me with this great start of my professional career. I had a great time last week at the fights. We took an RV to North Carolina and had 25 of my family and friends front row. Then I get back, and we completed the team with a promotional contract from The Money Team. I am blessed, and I am just excited about my team and my future in the sport. I want to thank Doc Nowicki, my dad Dave Price, Dejuan Blake, Leonard Ellerbe and of course TBE “Money” Mayweather for completing my team,” said Dylan Price
Doc Nowicki, co-manager of Dylan Price said,  “I am proud and happy for “Lil Dave” as we call him. He said from the beginning of our conversations that he wanted to be with Mayweather, and now it’s a reality. His team is shaping up nicely and I see big things in store for him”Dave Price, Father and co-manager exclaimed “I’m excited about all of the things that are happening with my sons career. We are expanding our team by partnering with Dejuan Blake and then signing a promotional deal with Mayweather Promotions. I am very happy that the business portion is complete so that I can now focus on training my son and fighting on March 25th in Las Vegas.”

Kaepernick to stand?

According to an ESPN report, Colin Kaepernick will be standing during the national anthem next season. Kaepernick, who kneeled during national anthem for all 16 games, is expected to opt out of his contract with the 49ers.

Call me cynical, but I believe this is a byproduct of Kaepernick trying to prove to other teams that he is not going to be a distraction. How much has truly changed since he started taking a knee? Maybe a little, but definitely not enough.

Warriors players react to Durant’s injury

Kevin Durant is out for at least four weeks with a MCL sprain and tibial bone bruise. KD’s teammates react to his injury on Twitter. Here are a few:

Durant out indefinitely

The Warriors and Kevin Durant dodged a bullet today. It was learned today that Kevin Durant will be out indefinitely with a MCL sprain and tibial bone bruise. After four weeks, Durant will be re-evaluated.  I guess it could have been worse. We’ll see what happens after four weeks. Indefinitely could possibly turn into longer(see Joel Embiid) if things do not look good after four weeks. Hopefully KD will be back sooner than later.

Embiid out for the year

“The Process” has ended for now! 76ers have announced that Joel Embiid will be out for the season with a meniscus tear in his left knee. After missing the first two years of his career with a foot injury, Embiid played in 31 games for the 76er this season.

Embiid has missed the first two seasons of his career. In his first season, he played in only 31 games.  I think the 76ers have an interesting decision when it comes to building their franchise around Embiid. Can you really trust that he can stay healthy?  I am not sure you can. Either the 76ers have bad luck or bad karma. Whatever they have, it ain’t good!
