Free Agency Frenzy

The NBA has been nutty the past couple days. Nets trying to become a BIG 3(D-Will, Joe Johnson, and…D-Howard??) for the BIG New Arena and New Team they are going to in Brooklyn. We have seen bridges burned with Kidd fleeing to New York and probably the most shocking move with Steve Nash becoming a Laker. Youve got a PG roulette wheel going on with Kyle Lowry to Raptors, Dragic to Suns, and potentially Lin to Rockets. How bout those MAvericks who were suppose to get D-Will and Howard are now left out with having Ramon Sessions being their “big” move as they also left Jason Terry go to Celtics. Mark Cuban has to be sick to his stoamch as he left Chandler and Barea go for this big offseason. Even teams like Clippers are trying to become associated with success signing back Billups and getting Jamal Crawford and Lamar Odom. Finally the NBA Champs are on verge of getting Ray Allen to add to their old fort of role players.

Wrapping it up their have been so many moves and talk with a lot of this coming out from nowhere as we are still looking forward to see where Howard lands as he continues to try to push himself to Brooklyn.

So Has The Coronation Settled In?

LeBron has done it and my hat goes off to me I have been a critic of him at times but this season he showed up game in and game out. He was on a mission and he completed it so congrats to him and the Miami Heat. The one thing I dont want to happen is for people to get carried away its 1 title this was the guy who was suppose to win multiple so lets see him get that done and become the greatest player we have ever seen because he is certainly on the way.

Conference Finals Heat vs Celtics

What a game it was last night, the Celtics brought out all the dogs and still were not able to get over the hump. Kudos to Rondo with the 1st ever 40+ point 10 assist game in Boston playoff history. Yes he played spectacular he did what Cousy, Bird, and Russell all didn’t and it still wasnt enough. And before everybody jumps on LBJ for that miss he played magnificient with his near triple-double and timely plays. It was a jumpshot that can be made BE HAPPY at least he took the shot this time instead of passing to Haslem, who by the way had a nice game to go along with Battier and Chalmers. D-Wade did what he had to scoring 8 points in OT and seemingly putting the nail in the coffin on the series. Unlike the Thunder series I think this one is over Boston will play formidable like they have for the past couple years but I know at least half of my Finals prediction will be right as the Heat will probably win in 5 with the Celtics getting Game 3. They just dont have enough anymore to get them over the hump as Game 2 looked like the straw that broke the camel’s back.

Conference Finals Spurs vs. Thunder

So my Thunder prediction isn’t looking so hot right now but its onyl 2 games so no panic. I will say being a person who roots for the Thunder I am considerably discouraged because their BIG 3 scored 88 points the 2nd most ever by a trio in NBA Playoff History and they lost. When that happens it almost seems as though theyd be a guarantee win but no because the Spurs once again put on a clinic with ball movement and phenomenal shooting. 2 ways the Thunder can get back in this series first bench Perkins he a fish out of water against this finesse type Offense of the Spurs he just can not keep up. 2nd Russell Westbrook must be more efficient if you shoot 25 times you need at least 10 FT attempts because Harden and Durant were a combined 20 for 30 from  the field and got to line 10+ times each while Westbrook was 10 for 25 from the field and only shot 5 FTs pass them the ball more they could have both went for 40 as effecient as they were. They get to the line…Russell must do the same.

Buzz In DC

SO how about the Buzz in DC these days? You have the new Franchise QB in RG3, The Phenoms Together with Bryce Harper and Mr. Strasburg, and to round it all up

The Capitals could be the 1st DC sport team to make it to a Conference Final in a long while.

The Buzz around here is great people are actually taking notice watching hockey games and DC teams are actually being talked about on ESPN for the good that is going on. Were not a fixture on the NOT Top 10 like we were when the Wizards were playing and they are not talking about Dan Snyder’s spending spree. Its great to be a DC Fan today and I’m thinking for many years to come the Nation’s Capital is back baby and were on the rise taking no prisoners.

It Feels good to have pride in your hometown team so lets start selling out and get to the next step where we have chamionship caliber teams

Were coming hard and fast.

 

NFL Draft

What a great couple of days it has been with all the trades and movement due in large part to the new rookie wage scale, which before without it scared teams away from trading up. Picks 2-7 all had to due with trades with the Vikvings tricking the Browns to trade up one spot and the Cowboys and Jaguars going after their man respectively. Cowboys grap Claiborne and Jags grab Blackmon.

Bucs and Rams are big winners of the first teams with improving their teams greatly.

Bucs get MArk Barron, Doug Martin, and Lavonte David to go along with their FA signings they could be back to being a contender with their new coach Greg Schiano at the helm.

Rams trade back gain more picks and still improve their defense with Brockers from LSU, Jenkins from North Alabame(Florid), and Trumain Johnosn from Montana. While also grapping a hopeful weapon for Bradford in Brian Quick.

Overall its been extremely entertaining with alot of teams looking as though they have improved their teams greatly Like in New England with Hightower and Chandler Jones and also in San Franciso grabbing more offense with LaMichale Jaems and AJ Jenkins.

Weekend Wrap-Up

This was a pretty intrguing weekend of sports. You had some great baseball with a Phil Humber perfect game to more Yanks-Red Sox history and to finish the weekend there was the Return of “Ron Artest” aka Metta World Peace.

In itself it had a little bit of everything not to mention it held us off for the NFL Draft, which is now 3 Days Away.

Overall for the weekend remember in Baseball its all about Yanks-Red Sox with a team on the Rise in DC

Basketball is everybody run Artest returns exemplifying an easy how to guide of how every pro should not act

Draft, Deciding Game 7s, and Start of NBA Playoffs is next

DC Sports

DC Sports are in the midst of the greatest times around here in years.

The Nationals lead the Division with great starting pitching and still have yet to add Morse and Bryce Harper to the Lineup. Stock Arrow is WAY UP

For the Redskins its simple we have a Franchise QB coming to town for the first time in awhile..Enough Said

Capitals are simply in the playoffs competing with an actual shot at winning…Thats great in itself

Last team just say Wizards…Okay so maybe we’ll just be 3 for 4 but 3 for 4 is way better than the normal 0 for 4 GO DC #DC Sports
