Kemba Walker and Derrick should have headlined last weeks NBA draft, instead Kyrie Irving was selected first overall. Maybe scouts are bias to Duke products but he was not even close to the best player in the draft. I mean we barely even saw him play because he was injured all but 11 games. But we will see in October, well unless the league goes down the NFL’s path and lock outs. Keep those fingers crossed!!! @jiggzbrown sports jones theinsideskoop.com
Thursday June 23rd marked day 100 of the NFL lockout. Can we please be civilized and come to an agreement. When the days become cold and short many of us need our FOOTBALL for motivation

Why can’t the pitcher bat in the American League? It would be better to see the Amrican incorporate the same style of batting as the National league. It simply creates more strategy than the American league with a washed up player who can still hit but is too old to play the field as well. When you know the pitcher has to bat you have to do more planning and coaching during the game. For example let’s say the pitcher is due up at bat in a national league game and the team batting is down 3 runs in the 5th inning with runners on second and third. In this scenario someone would have to pinch hit for the pitcher because more than likely the pitcher will find a way to get out. In the American the number 9 hitter would just come up which takes the strategy and excitement out of the game. Let the pitcher bat in both leagues. Good or bad idea???

Yesterday 22 year old Rory Mcllroy won the U.S. Open going away when he posted a score of -16. Who knows he could be on a Tiger Woods level. Tiger was only a year younger than Mcllroy when he won his first major at the Masters in 1996. Stay tuned to the British Open, that will be the real test.

As we all know, sadly my Heat went down the other night in game 6 of the finals, giving Dallas it’s first championship. The Heat went down despite having their all-star trio of Bosh, Wade, and Lebron. What should we make out of this? Can we say that talent does not prevail over teamwork and chemistry.
Sure my Heat had some cohesiveness by the end of the season, but a lot of times I witnesses one of the big three bail the Heat out with a great one on one move. If you look at the Mavericks, even though they have Dirk to lead the way, they also have players to compliment him. But these are what I would call solid players. This is someone like Jason Terry who is not quite an all-star but who is not someone you would call a role player either. He’s in the middle of the two which is what I think the formula for winning. You have your superstar who was Dirk then you have those in the middle players that can create their own shot like Terry or Kidd. Then you bring in your role players like Tyson Chandler, Deshawn Stevenson, and JJ Barea. This insures that others can create shots for themselves and teammates besides Dirk. But unlike the Heat these in the middle players like Terry and Kidd won’t demand shots. Thats the difference between the Mavs and the Heat. Yeah, the Heat have multiple shot makers but Wade, Lebron, and even Bosh are going to demand shots which makes it much more difficult to develop permanent chemistry. I love my Heat but who knows if there is a way for them to all work together as a unit over a long period of time.
