Dwight Howard’s name is once again swirling in trade rumors as the NBA’s February 18 trade deadline approaches. In what is expected to be a dull trade deadline, Howard switching teams could immediately change the league’s playoff landscape.
The best team in basketball knocked out the best player in basketball Tuesday night to win the 2015 NBA Finals, four games to two. Stephen Curry had many moments that screamed “best shooter in the world” and LeBron James played his tail off to keep his team in the series. Continue reading
As four teams prepare to play in the conference finals the rest of the teams get their first look at what is in store for the upcoming offseason. The NBA Draft Lottery is being held tonight (8:30 p.m. ET, ESPN) and the 14 teams who did not make the playoffs get their moment in the spotlight. Continue reading
As I watch No. 21 SMU Mustangs play the unranked, defending National Champion Connecticut Huskies on this snowy Sunday in Connecticut I can’t help but think about how good this Mustang team would have been if their top recruit decided to go to college. I also can’t help but think about how this talented UConn team is going to miss the NCAA Tournament barring some crazy American Athletic Conference Tournament run, and part of me thinks that winning the conference tournament is very possible (where have we seen a UConn team do that before).

Jameis Winston has been in the news a lot throughout the past two years for many things that do not involve a football. From “mistakenly” forgetting to pay for crab legs, to yelling an obscene sexual phrase that can only hurt his image as he continues to deal with sexual assault allegations, Winston has only missed one game football game and three baseball games over two seasons and Florida State’s football team is still in contention for a second straight National Championship.

In case you missed anything from the 2014 ESPYs all of Drake’s clips will be included below. I grade each segment Drake did throughout the show, and Drake’s Overall Grade can be found at the bottom of this page.
Drake got progressively getting funnier as the show went on. I thought his opening monologue was decent considering Drake never once called himself anything close to a stand up comedian.
Drake’s Opening Monologue Grade: C+
The 2014 FIFA World Cup is over for the United States as eight nations still believe their team will be named World Cup Champions on July 13. The United States lost to Belgium, 2-1, in extra time on Tuesday in the Knockout Round of 16.
While the end result of this final game for the Americans has been talked about continuously for the past two days one play seems to have been conveniently overlooked, especially by ESPN. Don’t get me wrong the worldwide leader has discussed this play from time to time, but it is even left out of Bob Ley’s tournament recap.
