Can Lebron And A.D. Bring Back Showtime To Lakers?

Last season much was expected of the Los Angeles Lakers with Lebron James leading them. For a while, it looked like they were going to be a playoff team, but injuries took a toll on the Lakers. Fast forward into the offseason the Lakers have added a lot of pieces to the equation. Rajon Rondo came back and Boogie Cousins was also added to the mix with a lot of role players.
Maybe the biggest addition was adding Anthony Davis in a trade from the New Orleans Pelicans. Davis is a top player in the league and should help out James immensely. The only real drawback I see to Davis is he has been prone to injury. He has missed a number of games in his career, but besides that, he is a top-notch player in this league. Will this new addition bring back Showtime? Let's take a closer look.
I like the roster and we should see glimpses of showtime, but I have one fear and that is the injury bug. Many of these players have logged a good number of minutes during their careers and that could be a problem. If they can stay healthy this should be a very competitive team to watch, but if the injury bug hits this team will struggle to be a playoff team.

Kevin Durant A Go For Game 5 No Real Shock!

Kevin Durant has been out of action for a month, but he is a go for Game 5 in Toronto. Did anyone really think he would not show up sometime in the series? Durant is a player that can make a huge difference when healthy. The real question is what can Durant give the Warriors at this point down 3-1.

Many people think he won't make much of a difference, but I'm not of that thinking at all. I think Kevin Durant will play alot better then people think. Is he enough to make a difference tonight? I say yes as the Warriors need one more scorer and we all know Durant can fill it up.

Playing in Toronto is perfect for Durant as he loves being the villain and hearing the boos. All that does is fuel his desire. Toss in Drake and this has to be a much-watched game tonight. No matter what happens the ratings should be sky high for Durant's return.

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.
