Lets be honest, it’s been a pretty dry week in sports. Football is a few months away, Lebron is expected to stay in Cleveland (we hope), and baseball……is baseball. Despite the dry spell in sports, moves and plays have been made to impact the seasons that are up coming. Off-season moves are like getting the ingredients for a soup. If you get the wrong items, you can end up with a Knicks’ broth. Here are the things we learned in sports this week.
7. Lakers and Knicks are left holding the bag
You know you had a terrible off-season when the two starting centers for each team are Robin Lopez and reportedly Roy Hibbert. The New York Knicks and Los Angeles Lakers now have to realize that players do not want to spend their time on a team that isn’t close to winning a title. In the Knicks case, they lost out on big man Greg Monroe to the Milwaukee Bucks. Name another time in history Milwaukee beat New York in anything? For the Lakers, literally no one signed with them. They had to trade for guy who looks like the mon-stars from Space Jams stole his powers. Kobe looks happy though. This can’t go well for Hibbert.
6. Real Spurs Never Die
For the last twenty years, the Spurs have been the most consistent team in the NBA. Making the playoffs 19 of the 20 years, and winning 5 NBA. The combination of Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan, and Greg Popovich have been the model that all teams in the NBA have tried to copy. Even when father time comes knocking at the door the team builds up. It is reported that free agent blue chipper LaMarcus Aldridge will be joining the spurs on a 4 year/80 million dollar max contract. This comes off re-signing Kawhi Lenorad and Danny Green all under the age of 30. This really might be the start of something special.
5. Floyd Mayweather takes a lost
Floyd “Money” Mayweather is expected to be stripped of his WBO welterweight title due to a lack of compliance. Mayweather defeated Manny “Pac-Man” Pacquiao on May 2 to win the title. But ESPN.com’s Dan Rafael reports that the World Boxing Organization officially decided to take back its 147-pound belt from the undefeated Mayweather.
4. White boy can play
If you old enough to remember, Jason Williams was the white Kyrie Irving, don’t believe me, google him. Irving might have to go against his son in a few years. A YouTube video is going around of 13-year-old Jaxon Williams’ breaking ankles like his daddy did back in the day. He has already been dubbed as “White Chocolate Jr.” Watch as the young Williams’ makes these kids dance.
3. Tom Brady got the G card from the Migos
Yea it’s the off-season, and now you got Tom Brady getting passing from the Migos. TMZ sports reports that the Migos have given the G-pass for “dancing to his music.” Brady can now run up in the bando and trap until his heart is content. According to TMZ, Quavo and Takeoff were out in L.A. recently when we asked the Hotlanta boys how they felt about Brady turning up to their hit “Handsome & Wealthy“ at the Patriots Super Bowl ring party. Watch as Tom Brady turns up to the “YRN” music.
2. What the hell is wrong with Iman
Iman Shumpert got a 4 year/ 40 million dollar extension from the Cleveland Cavaliers this offseason and decided to spend none of that money on a hair cut. Shumpert has become know for his high top fade, but TMZ sports has learned that he didn’t want that to be his only look. There are no words to describe what type of mess Iman has put on top of his head, but hey it is the NBA off-season.
1. Forget Football, Basketball is were the money is.
Ok does the name Kosta Koufos mean anything to anyone. Didn’t think so, ok he is a 4 year NBA vet who just got 33 million dollars over the next 4 years. The Sacramento Kings, who are battling the Knicks for the worst franchise over the last decade, have signed the big man away from the Memphis Grizzles. His career averages are 5.2 points and 5.3 rebounds with 0.8 blocks. This has to be looked at as the new NBA. where guys who haven’t won any major awards as an individual or a team are getting these M’s. LaMarcus Aldrige just signed a contract that is only 10 million dollars more then Kris Middleon and 5 million less than Draymod Green. What is scare about all these signings is the fact that the cap is going to go up in the NBA after next season. Better work on your handle and jump shoot, because the NBA is where the money is.

Sad news in the sports world today as it is being revealed that former big leaguer Darryl Hamilton, 50 and his wife Monica Jordan, 44 were found dead in what authorities believe to be a murder-suicide.
Police were called to the Pearland, TX home in response to disturbance and upon their arrival, discovered the body of Hamilton and his wife shot to death. The couple’s 13-month child was unharmed.
Police said officers were sent to the home on an emergency call about a disturbance. When they arrived, they found the body of Darryl Hamilton, 50, near the front entry way. The body of Monica Jordan, 44, was found in another part of the home.
Investigators said it appeared Hamilton had been shot more than once and Jordan died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
During a career which spanned 3 decades, Hamilton played for Milwaukee Brewers, Texas Rangers, San Francisco Giants, Colorado Rockies, and New York Mets which went to the 2000 World Series. After retiring in 2001, he went on to become an analyst for MLB Network.

Championships drive this week in sports as the Golden State Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers in 6 games to win the NBA championship. Andre Iguodala, who didn’t start a single game during the regular season, changed the series after being inserted into the starting lineup. With his timely shooting and defense on Lebron James, he was rewarded with the Bill Russell most valuable award for the finals. The win ended a 40 year drought for the fans out in the Bay area, while Cleveland fans are still searching for their first. A little basketball, with some baseball scandals, mixed in with some internet fun gives you the things we learn in sports for this week.
7. Clint Dempsey on some boss moves
Clint Dempsey got a red card last night for ripping the ref’s notebook because he is a LEGEND https://t.co/IQuKQAwnuH
— BuzzFeed Sports (@BuzzFeedSports) June 17, 2015
In the 113th minute, Sounders midfielder Michael Azira was also hit with a red card for an elbow to the face of forward Gaston Fernandez and Dempsey angrily protested, proceeding toward referee Daniel Radford, taking a notebook from his hands. According to U.S. Soccer Federation policy, damage to a referee’s uniform or personal property would result in a 3 month ban. Don’t be messing with the refs pockets kid.
6. Pablo Sandoval got caught slipping
The Boston Red Sox benched third baseman Pablo Sandoval on Thursday for using Instagram during Wednesday night’s 5-2 loss to the Atlanta Braves. MLB.com’s Ian Browne tweeted the news, adding that Sandoval admitted to “liking” photos of a woman on Instagram during the game:
Sandoval “liked” a picture of female on Instagram during game. He admitted he did it and accountable for punishment of not playing today.
— Ian Browne (@IanMBrowne) June 18, 2015
This is what we call the slip up. Sandoval signed a 5 year/95 million dollar deal in the off-season and he out here given inta-model hope. Sandoval clearly didn’t see the type of mind games he just played on that girl picture. Just look at the what LeBron James did to Josett Latrice . Why do you give these hoes life?
5. Meet Wide Receiver Terrell Pryor
Terrelle Pryor has been released for the second time this season. The Cincinnati Bengals cut Pryor on Thursday after reports of his struggles during mini-camp. This is after Pryor was cut by the Kansas City Chiefs earlier this month. Now, Pryor’s agent Drew Rosenhaus is informing teams Pryor is changing positions to wide receiver, according to Pro Football Talk. Pryor had never really was able to have the success in the NFL that he achieved in college. This move seems to be the only way he can save his career.
4. Cari Champion is moving on to SportsCenter
Cari Champion is now the former host of the hit tv show ESPN First Take as she received a promotion to be an anchor on SportsCenter. Champion will begin her morning “SportsCenter” duties in mid-July and will take part in a series of “interactions” about sports and entertainment with the crew at “Good Morning America,” which airs on ESPN sister station ABC.
— Joseph Kapsch (@JosephKapsch) June 19, 2015
This seems to be a good move for Champion, but the show will just have a different look to it now as she will no longer be able to control Skip Bayless, or Stephen A. Smith.
3. David Blatts says that this is my house
The Cleveland Cavaliers have to still be feeling the sting of losing the NBA Finals in six games to the Golden State Warriors. David Griffin and head coach David Blatt promoted the positive direction the team headed after a mid-season roster overhaul on Thursday. The meeting also reassured that coach Blatt will remain the coach of the team.
David Blatt on coaching the Cavs this year: “This was a very new kind of thing for me … I went through a highly radical learning curve”
— Dave McMenamin (@mcten) June 18, 2015
There were also question of his relationship with Lebron James. ESPN’s Marc Stein has a report of the lack of respect that James seems to his head coach.
Blatt on LeBron expressing his opinion in huddles: “I think it’s important he feels empowered.” Says his “heart was in the right place”

2.A-Rod gets his milestone and no love
Alex Rodriguez got his 3,000th hit off off Detroit Tigers’ pitcher Justin Verlander. The New York Yankees slugger became just the 29th player in MLB history to reach that milestone. Even with this great achievement, the New York Post didn’t waste time to point out what might of help Rodriguez achieve this milestone.
— John Kucko (@john_kucko) June 20, 2015
Rodriguez has been painted as a villain coming into this season after serving a yearlong suspension due to PEDs. Yet he has been the Yankees’ best player so far, and needs to be for them to compete.
1. The Champs are here
The Golden State Warriors are the 2014-2015 NBA champs. This is their first championship in 40 years. They were able to bring the world title to the bay area by shooting the long ball. Only thing left for them to do is to get Lil B a rap career.

This week in sports stars history on the tracks of New York. American Pharoah was able to complete the Triple Crown this past Saturday and gave horse racing a shot in the arm. American Pharoah was the first horse to win the Kentucky Derby, Preakness, and the Belmont, since Affirmed in 1978. With history as the main player, these are the things we learn in sports.
7. Dez wants to get paid.
Dez Bryant for the Dallas Cowboys is considering skipping the start of the season if he doesn’t receive a contract extension. ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reports that Byrant, 26, is considering skipping game 1 against the New York Giants to prove his point. Bryant had the franchise tag placed on him during the off season. Bryant can receive a long term deal only until July 15. Micheal Silver of NFL.com can confirm that this isn’t a rumor.
Again, Dez Bryant just told me (of sitting out Week 1 if he doesn’t have longterm contract done) ‘This is no rumor; it’s legit’ @nflnetwork
— Michael Silver (@MikeSilver) June 12, 2015
Mortensen noted Bryant has not signed his franchise-tag deal that guarantees him $12.8 million. Bryant’s agent, Tom Condon, said, “Our goal is still to get something done on a long-term basis by the deadline.” Bryant is coming off a Pro Bowl season, and expectations are high for Dallas. Dallas can’t afford for Bryant to not be on the field at any point this season.
6. Kanye West doing Kanye West things at the NBA Finals.
— Robert Littal (@BSO) June 12, 2015
Kanye West try’s to takes some shine away from the NBA Finals as he pretends to be an NBA player and answer questions. O you mad Huh? It now you move Riley Curry.
5. Will the Real J.R. Smith please sit down
Cleveland Cavilers guard J.R. Smith is having a terrible NBA finals, or as he would put it, he played like Horse Sh*t. He missed 10 of his 12 shots, and became the first player in finals history to go 0-8 from three. His problems in the big moment are one of the reasons he was packaged with Iman Shumpert in the deal that sent both of them to Cleveland. Smith has always had the ability to get hot at the dribble of the ball, and if he want Cleveland to win a title, he will have to start heating up.
4. Hey Ladies, USA Women’s National team seek a World Title.
The United States remained unbeaten at the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup after playing out a scoreless draw against Sweden and former coach Pia Sundhage on Friday night in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The women’s team wants to bring back home the title for the first time since 1999. Even with the problems that surround goalie Hope Solo, the team is still poised to be the best in the world.
3. 27 up and 27 down, Pitcher Chris Heston throws no-hitter against the Mets
San Francisco Giants’ pitcher Chris Heston threw the first no-hitter of the season against the New York Mets. Bleacher Reports’ Jacob Shafer writers that after Heston’s masterful 11-strikeout performance against the New York Mets on June 9, he became the first Giants rookie to throw a no-no since Jeff Tesreau in 1912. Not a bad way to begin your career in the MLB.
2. Riley Curry getting this work even when she’s sleeping
There will be at least one more game played in Oracle Arena as the series between the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers is tied at 2 games apiece. Riley Curry has really been the star of the playoffs since her arrival on the scene in the Western Conference Finals, but she has been a no show since the star of the NBA finals, until now. Steph Curry’s wife, Ayesha Curry decided to troll the Cavalier fans by posting this picture of Riley on instagram.
1. Run, Run, Run
American Pharoah has won the Triple Crown something that hasn’t been accomplished since 1978. Racing has clearly taking a backseat to every single sport that is played in America, but a win like this might jump start the sport once again. David Hill of The New Yorker explains how racing use to be the main sport in this country.
“For more than twenty years after the Second World War, horse racing led all American sports in attendance figures. In 1973, the year that Secretariat won the Triple Crown after a twenty-five-year drought, attendance at North American race tracks topped seventy-six million. (By comparison, the combined attendance for American League and National League baseball that year was just over thirty million, a high-water mark for that sport.) Attendance at race tracks has since plummeted to a small fraction of those numbers. (Hill)”
But it seems that if a star can be born within the sport, then eyes will go to the screen. If that happens then Horse Racing has a heart beat once again.

Twins outfielder Torii Hunter was ejected during the Twins vs. Royals game late in the 7th inning last night.
The above video clip shows Hunter getting frustrated during an at-bat, and Hunter losing it soon after he was sent back to the dugout on a called third strike. Mark Ripperger, the home-plate umpire, had a front row view of Hunter’s strip tirade.
“I thought the last pitch he called a strike was revenge,” Hunter said to local reporters after the game. Frustration just might be the theme of the Twins’ dugout right now. After a 20-7 month of May, the Twins are now 3-7 in June, and tied with the Royals for first place in the American League Central.
