Let’s Be Honest…

25 Apr

Our unfiltered thoughts on the past week in sports…

Everyone in Chicago better start praying fervently that Derrick Rose can come out of that walking boot and be effective.

At some point, LeBron James or Dwyane Wade is going to have to make a game-winning shot in the last 10 seconds.  It doesn’t really matter how great the rest of the game was if you lose.

Maybe they need to learn from Chris Paul, he sure shows a lot of heart and put that team on his back. But we already knew that.

No matter how you slice it, this was a heck of a shot by Lou Williams to extend the 76ers series with the Miami Heat.

The San Antonio Spurs were one of the best teams in the entire NBA this season, yet they look downright old against the Memphis Grizzlies.  Might an upset be on the horizon?

Folks are really upset about the performance of the New York Knicks in the playoffs but if I recall correctly weren’t people just hoping for a better second half of the season, much less a trip to the playoffs. *scratching head*

Brandon Davies is attempting to get back in good standing with BYU and rejoin the team. Did he read Deadspin’s report on BYU? Or maybe he did and realized that it’s BYU or no more NCAA basketball.

Major League Baseball is adding more teams to the playoffs.  This just screams “MO MONEY” and not more competition.  At this rate baseball season will run until Thanksgiving.  Sure will be fun to play in Boston or Cleveland that time of year.

How far do you think the Utah Attorney General will get with his antitrust lawsuit against the BCS? Yes, most of us would like to see a playoff but will the courts just throw it out?

I don’t know about you but I’m feeling these Purdue University Tressel t-shirts.

Is anyone else interested to see how far Ryan Mallett falls in the NFL due to his “off the field” issues?

The NFL has asked former players of all 32 teams to present the draft picks in the second round…how many people are going to stay in the house Friday night for this?  Unless the Redskins somehow manage to get Sean Taylor to do it, I won’t be scrapping my plans.

Just exactly what did the 70 mid-tier players think they would accomplish by representing themselves separately from the other named players in the lawsuit against the NFL?

Again, Tom Zbikowski of the Baltimore Ravens wins his boxing bout by knock out. He is now 4-0, that side hustle is really working out for him.

As soon as I heard Brandon Marshall, of the Miami Dolphins, had been stabbed my first thought was, “had to be a woman” and surely I was right.  I remember when this piece aired a few years ago on ESPN.  This isn’t his first trip to the domestic violence rodeo.

How about those Washington Capitals taking down the New York Rangers and finally getting out of the first round of playoffs? That’s a huge win for DC sports.
