In any other city, any other basketball franchise or any other loyalist residing anywhere other than Los Angeles, are burnt out of the Lakers and inclined to see the biggest attraction under the bright lights in Hollywood descend.


Lately, the town has been obligated and worried about the Lakers, a common reaction in a community always trying to figure out an enigmatic franchise with arguably the most talent.

For all the weird and eccentric meltdowns, the primary major sporting franchise declined in previous weeks and all the relentless predictions of a potential back-to-back conquest tapered.

So there were the Lakers, in the finest win this season, brainwashing us with second thoughts to whether they can repeat and jubilate, gaze at a 17th championship banner rise to the rafters at Staples Center, and partake in another parade on Figueroa Avenue.

We all know that great Vince Carter 4-10 years ago. Flashy, slash-and-dash, fast, freakish, monster, dunking nightmare, etc. And now, for the first time in his career pretty much, he’s that X-Factor.

The veteran. The old guy. He’s not as fast, we know. He’s not as freakish, not as much as a dunking king as he used to be. But he still has a lot left in the tank.

And he has something to prove. And for the first time in his career, he has a shot at the Finals with a strong team making noise: the Orlando Magic. Carter probably has never had a player like Dwight Howard.

Carter has more weapons around him. And he isn’t considered the No. 1 guy anymore, though it doesn’t hurt him probably.

The teams mostly everyone expects to win during the series won today, leading 1-0 in the first round of the NBA playoffs as the Cavaliers stopped the Bulls 96-83 and the Hawks downed the Bucks 102-92.

CHI-CLE

The Cavaliers were just simply better than the Bulls if you look at it. They got LeBron, Shaq, and Antwan Jamison. They have more depth, more strength, and are just simply better team all-around.

The Cavaliers look to not fail this time. They made it to the Finals before, but choked. They got swept by San Antonio.

Some more NFL rumors! Things are starting to get big now. With the NFL Draft coming closer and closer, more rumors begin to pop up. Who will draft who? Who will sign who? Which player will get traded?

Man, these rumors just keep getting better and better. Here is a sneak preview of what’s coming up in this article:

Brian Westbrook hasn’t been receiving much interest lately from teams, but there is one that has finally came up and it might work. Marshawn Lynch will most likely be released by Buffalo, especially since the draft has come up. And an interesting trade has come up. The Detroit Lions are shopping for a running back? Ben Roethlisberger on the move? Hey, it’s possible. Where will Terrell Owens go? There is one team out there, and it’ll be the perfect fit.

Upon the beginning of this year’s free agency period, Baltimore Ravens offensive tackle, Jared Gaither was regarded as one of the best tackles in the class.

In past weeks there has been major speculation that the Buffalo Bills‘ 2007 first round draft selection, Marshawn Lynch, will not be wearing a Bills jersey in 2010.
After a dismal performance in 2009, rushing only 120 times for 450 yards and two touchdowns, paired with multiple off the field incidents, it seems like Marshawn’s time as a Bill is up.
Lynch lost his starting job to Fred Jackson after he wasn’t able to regain his ability after a three-game suspension to begin the year.
Now, Jackson is slated as the starting running back for 2010 and Lynch will be riding the bench again if he doesn’t clean up his act.
But would dealing Marshawn Lynch be beneficial to the team? I don’t think so. As of now, Lynch and Jackson are the only backs on the depth chart, and for a team with more holes than Swiss cheese, losing a quality back with a high ceiling like Lynch wouldn’t be a good move.
New head coach Chan Gailey has been known to utilize a run-heavy offense in his previous years, which will definitely take a toll on the smaller Fred Jackson. Gailey has made statements that having more than one back is necessary to win football games in the NFL and has even given a prototype of the type of back he would like to acquire to make Buffalo a three-headed tandem.
That prototype is a “5′9″, 185-pound or 195-pound, quick-as-a-cat water bugs, that are running backs-slash-receivers that might give you a little punch on the field.”
But does Lynch want out of Buffalo? When Marshawn joined the Bills, he was a fan favorite, rushing for over 1,000 yards in his first two seasons and reaching a Pro Bowl. He has yet to make an appearance at One Bills Drive for their voluntary offseason workouts, which is unexpected considering his play (or lack thereof) from last season.
With a new coaching staff, it probably would have made his case a little stronger if he showed desire to learn and improve while competing to earn back his starting role in the Bills’ backfield.

The NBA playoffs have now finally started! Some teams fell short and some were just way off for contention that they are already looking forward to the upcoming season ahead. 16 teams made it, eight teams for each conference. Two teams play on the big show, who wins? This year’s playoffs looks exciting and I expect a fun one. Here’s a preview for the first round of the splendid NBA playoffs:

East

CHI-CLE – This looks to be interesting. Last year it was with the Celitcs-Bulls matchup. Good this be just as good. Probably not. That’s just my opinion, though. We heard the news. But, if you haven’t, here it is: LeBron James announced that the Bulls will be seeing a different monster than his average self during the regular season. And you know what the means?

The concern surrounding Ben Roethlisberger’s latest episode on sexual assault is misguided and strictly bias.

Either an ethical district attorney wants to punish the two-time Super Bowl champ for his stupidity, or an irritable father wants the NFL to suspend Roethlisberger of his accusations that has transpired—not once, but twice—and has raised concern within the Steelers family.

Not long ago, charges in the Lake Tahoe case were dismissed, when a woman and employee of the resort accused him of sexual assault. His teammates label him as a hero, but the general public has mixed emotions.

Within the last month, hands have either pointed at Big Ben as if he’s a guilty malefactor, rather than a hallowed sports figure that every citizen in Pittsburgh endears after anchoring the franchise to two championships in the last decade.

Nobody in Chicago, a town some like to call America’s greatest sports town, wants to believe that futility suffocates its chances of celebrating a championship. In fact for many years now, the Chicago Cubs’ undying curse has tarnished and stained the finest sporting market.

In other parts of the town, the White Sox are belittled and laughable because of Ozzie Guillen, a lunatic whose customary postgame rants, and on-the-field tantrums formulated controversies in the Southside of Chicago as general manager Ken Williams defends the mindless moron.

And now, here are bigger problems a passionate sports town faces, conflict involving coach Vinny Del Negro and his confounded boss, executive vice president John Paxson, an imbecile blamed and criticized for all failures that has poisoned an entire franchise. Ever since the Jordan regime abandoned the settings of being described as NBA’s most dominant franchise, a dynasty submerged and the organization never fully rebuilt as powerful contenders. It’s really embarrassing when a franchise has trouble reconstructing as a favorable team.
