Let’s Be Honest…

02 Apr

Our unfiltered thoughts on the past week in sports…

Sean Payton and Mickey Loomis are appealing their suspensions but doesn’t it seem odd that the person that hears the appeals, Roger Goodell, is the man that handed down the suspensions in the first place?

Those with interest in the NFL are anxiously awaiting the unveiling of the new Nike apparel on Tuesday, although Nike has said not to expect drastic changes. That’s just too bad because that Tampa Bay creamsicle and Seattle neon green deserves to be phased out.

5 foot 9 inch James Justice owned the NCAA slam dunk contest.  Why is this SO much better than the pros?

Thank you Kentucky for continuing to eliminate the fluorescent day-glo teams from the NCAA Tournament.

Kentucky fans rioted over their team’s win over in-state rival, Louisville. If we were police officers in Lexington we’d be very worried about Monday, win or loss. Either way, it won’t look pretty.

Anthony Davis from Kentucky could gain 30-40 pounds and become a dominant NBA player for years to come.  But at what point does he do something about that unibrow?

While we’re on the topic of much needed makeovers, when will RG III get the memo that it’s time for the braids to go?  We were glad to see him supporting the Baylor women’s team at the Final Four.

UConn and Notre Dame played a great Final Four game that went into overtime.  Sadly, very few people watched as Skylar Diggins and the Irish advanced to the National Championship.

It’s been great watching Brittney Griner of Baylor evolve into a complete player and not just rely on her remarkable ability.  It’s a shame we don’t get that same opportunity in the men’s game.

Speaking of the women, who picked the Women’s Final Four to be in Denver? The poor players are gasping for air. No one has an advantage at this location.

Kobe Bryant followed a 3-21 shooting performance on Saturday with a spectacular 40 point game on Sunday.  You just never know what you’re going to get with this crazy shortened NBA season.

Rajon Rondo once again showed he’s dangerous with a national viewing audience recording his fifth triple-double of the season as the once counted out Celtics routed the Miami Heat 91-72.

The Miami Heat is 4-7 during their last 11 road games (including losing three straight) but does anyone really think they’ll have any problem making it to the NBA Finals?
