Kyrie Irving And Big Brother King James Back Together Again?

Rumors are always a fun past time and one of the hottest right now is Kyrie Irving considering joining the Lakers and teaming up with Lebron James again. Can Kyrie really be considering this after the first breakup with James? Yes, it's possible from what I hear from various sources. Would this work a second time around? Let's take a look at what this could look like in Los Angeles.

Over time people get to look at things differently and I think both Irving and James do that now. James knows if he wants to win in Los Angeles he needs some help. Irving has realized he cannot carry a team by himself and is better as a sidekick. Both James and Irving have probably learned they are better as a team than apart.

If the Lakers want to win then they need to try and sign Kyrie Irving. When paired with James they make a lethal duo. Right now the Lakers are in flux and need talent and Irving fits the bill. If Irving and James can co-exist they may be able to bring back some of that old magic that dethroned the Warriors just a few years ago.

Orlando and Brooklyn Make Early Statements In NBA Playoffs

The Orlando Magic and Brooklyn Nets were just supposed to be here for the fun of the NBA Playoffs, but apparently, neither team got the memo. The Magic stopped the Toronto Raptors 104-101 and The Nets beat Philadelphia by a score of 111-102. San Antonio stop the Denver Nuggets 101-96 as well which many people thought was an upset. Anytime you play San Antonio they can beat you. It's just the nature of the beast.

Now all three teams did come up with big wins, but the odds of them winning the series is still remote at best. Out of all three teams, Orlando has the best shot of pulling the upset. Why Orlando? Since the All-Star break, they have been playing very well. We all know how Toronto seems to shrink in the playoffs so I give Orlando the best shot.

Texas Tech vs Virginia Did Anyone Have This In There Final Bracket?

Virginia was a team many had to make to the Final Four, but when the season started who knew about the Texas Tech Red Raiders. I will admit I was not one of the people. Give Texas Tech a lot of credit for making it to the big game.

After The Cavaliers was disappointed in last years tournament performance they came back and showed why they got a No.1 seed. Of course Auburn may disagree with that as they could be playing for all the marbles as well. Auburn had an unfortunate call go against them and lost it in the final seconds.

No matter who wins this tournament shows that anyone can get to the championship game. The key is playing well at the right time and get on a roll. Both Texas Tech and Virginia will get a chance to showcase what got them to this point on Monday Night!

Bryce Harper Is Not Worth 330 Million What Are The Phillies Thinking

No matter what anyone thinks Bryce Harper is not worth 330 Million dollars. His contract is worth more then what the Boston Red Sox spend to win the World Series last season. The Milwaukee Brewers only spent 108 million to make the playoffs. I just think the Philadelphia Phillies could have spent money more wisely than on Harper.

Is Bryce Harper a supreme talent? The truth is he is very talented, but he also has his drawbacks as a player. He sometimes is all about himself and not the team. Yes, Harper is talented, but you have to outweigh the negatives as well. The Phillies were willing to bet on Harper, but I think 330 million is way too much for a player who can be a problem sometimes.

I guess only time will tell if Harper was worth that kind of money. He will need to produce quickly and often to justify his huge contract. I just do not see it happening, but I have been wrong before so only time will tell.

Kentucky Dominates Tennessee But Are They For Real?

Everyone wanted to see how good Tennessee was, or if they were just a poll team that has gotten lucky most of the season. The truth is Tennessee is a good basketball team, but last night Kentucky was better. The game was in Rupp Arena before a prime time audience and Kentucky, in reality, had more on the line then the Vols. Kentucky is trying to catch Tennessee in the standings so a loss would have ended that for them.
PJ Washington had a huge game for the Wildcats, but it was Kentucky's defense that showed up big. They scrambled for the loose balls and did not give The Vols a chance to make deep runs at them. Kentucky showed that they can beat anyone if they come to play as a team. The real issue for the Wildcats is they do not give the same play game after game. They have been inconsistent at times during the season and that has hurt them.
Give the Wildcats credit as they played well for most of the game, but if they want to cut down the nets they must play like this all the time. Coach Cal knows if you want to be National Champions you cannot play inconsistent basketball. It will be interesting to see how Kentucky plays rest of the season. This was a great win, but they must build on it and play like this every game.

Do You Really Want Antonio Brown On Your Team?

It looks like Antonio Brown and the Pittsburgh Steelers are going to have a messy break-up, didn't we all really expect that to happen anyways. Pittsburgh stands to get a good haul for a trade, but what team is willing to take on Brown and his baggage. I'm sure there will be a long list of teams who want him, but many who will stay far away.

Brown is a player that when on the field is one of the best wide receivers in the league. With that also comes the other issues such as a diva on and off the field as well. There will be times where he will publicly cause a scene and could divide the locker room. This is something that most teams will not want no matter the talent level.

The team that trades for Antonio Brown will have a solid locker room where they will not let Brown drive a wedge between them. The quarterback also will need to have a thick skin as Brown will point fingers if the ball does not come his way a lot. Brown is super talented, but in the end, is it worth the added headaches. I think lot's of teams will pass on Brown, but some will jump at the chance to trade for him.
