Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers said he expects Shaquille O’Neil to be ready for game three against the Miami Heat on Saturday. Rivers also said Ray Allen, Rajon Rondo, and Paul Pierce are all expected to be ready to go as well. As for Shaq, can he really be a difference maker for this Celtics team, given his age, and lack of playing time in recent years?

Jose Reyes is the first big named player this season to have trade rumors swirl around him. The iconic home grown New York Met will test the waters of free agency this coming off-season, if he makes it that far. The Mets, who are certainly sellers rather then buyers due to their what appears to be insurmountable debt, will certainly look to obtain good young talent if they do make a deal for the 27 year old shortstop.

Playoff Rivalry Renewed

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kyle Sielaff @ 1:39 pm

For the first time since 1988, the Los Angeles Lakers, and the Dallas Mavericks will meet in the playoffs. It appears to be Phil Jacksons last go around as an NBA head coach, of course that is what Brett Favre said three different times as a player, but in all seriousness do the Lakers have what it takes to beat the Mavs’ and continue their pursuit of another championship?

Quite The Sight

It was quite the spectacle last night at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia. When the news broke of Osama Bin Ladens death, the ballpark in unison rose to they’re feet and all at once the crowd began to chant U-S-A. Sports are fascinating in the way in which they can bring a country together, no matter who is playing who, or what the game means, when news such as this breaks you remember that it is only a game.

Whether it is week 12 of the NFL season or two days before the upcoming NFL Draft, New York Jets head coach, Rex Ryan, keeps on running his trap.

African American MLB Players Decline

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kyle Sielaff @ 11:51 am

For the third consecutive year the percentage of black MLB players has once again dropped. It was not long ago back in 1990 that 17 percent of the Major Leaguers were African American, now in 2011 a mere 8.5 percent of players are black. Interestingly enough, MLB received the highest grade for racial diversity. I think it can be quickly assessed that by no means is MLB discriminating against blacks, that question has yet to come into play, but individuals will certainly be quick to jump to conclusions. What do you make out the annually decreasing numbers of black MLB players.
