Golden State Warriors’ is Going after the Historic 72 Wins

in NBA

Steve Kerr is denying that they are going after the NBA record for regular season wins. The only thing he is avoiding right now is putting too much expectation and pressure on the team and burn them out come the playoffs.

“We’re not really pushing for this,” as Kerr said to Sam Amick of USA Today. “All we’ve said is, ‘Yeah, it’d be nice to get. We’d like to get it.'”

The Warriors already won a Championship, aside from another Championship and possible 3-peat, breaking the Chicago Bulls’ record is as important as all the other team achievements.

The boys of Steve Kerr fought hard and strong against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday as the game went into overtime 124-117 and usually when there are a few games left in the regular season and you have already secured your playoff position; the minutes of the players go down.

There is a very long list of Championship teams but the 70-point club only belongs to the Chicago Bulls and the Golden State Warriors better join the club, then break the record.

Kobe Bryant Will Break Tears on his Last Game even when He says Routine

in NBA

On April 13 at the Staples Center against the Utah Jazz will the last game of Kobe Bryant after 20 years in the league.

Counting the number of games left the fans are getting emotional and would like to know what Kobe thinks; however, he seems to stay cool so as not to get affected:

Bryant said on Wednesday night — “I try not to do it too much, and just make yourself emotional.”

Bryant adds: “Just showing up and playing. Showing up and playing and hoping my body feels pretty damn good and I can get up and down the floor and run freely and play this game at the highest level of competition one more time.”

Bryant insists the last game wouldn’t be any different as he is going to do the same routine he has been doing for the past 20 years

“I won’t allow it to be any different,” said Bryant, 37, who is retiring after 20 NBA seasons. “One more time and go through same routine. Same group of people. One more time.”

Is this the ending that Kobe hoped and envisioned?

“Yeah, win a championship,” he said, “[but] that s— ain’t happening, so there you go. That’s done. The dream’s done. Dream’s done. For me, it’s coming out and playing in front of the fans and competing hard and playing against Utah, and them not taking it easy at all. They beat us by like 40 the last few times we played them. So I expect them to come and try to do the same thing.”

“To me, that is the greatest form of competition. That’s best last game you can have — a very competitive one, a physical one. That’s the way basketball should be. In terms of the end, I don’t know, man. I really don’t think about that that much; I just like the game itself.”

It is most likely that Kobe Bryant would break tears once the crowd stands up and chants his name, I am sure even their opponent will be there celebrating and paying respects for Kobe.

“When the time comes, you never know,” Bryant said. “[I] might be sitting here with tears flowing out of my eyes. I doubt it, but it could happen. I don’t know. We’ll see.”

During the second to the last game of the Lakers in their building, the crowd gave Kobe a standing ovation:

“This is the next-to-last game ever in this building. It’s pretty crazy,” Bryant chimed, “So I certainly can feel it. As soon as you run out at the start of the game, I could feel it.”

As Bryant adds: “I can feel it, and it feels pretty damn awesome. Going through the years of losing and not leaving [the Lakers] makes it all worthwhile standing here and taking the good with the bad and the fans embracing that and understanding that we ride together. That’s a love that you can’t break.”

Watch Intense 1.5 minutes of Wildcats vs Tar Heels Championship

in NCAA

Villanova won the NCAA Championship 2016 against North Carolina Tar Heels on a historic 3 point buzzer beating shot from Kris Jenkins.

The video shows the last 1 minute and 34 seconds of the game with Villanova leading by 6 points with the score at 70-64. Both teams fought hard on defense and every one of the 17 points scored in the last 1.5 minutes was hard earned.

Villanova Ends 31-year drought to become NCAA 2016 Champions

in NCAA

Villanova Wildcats ended a 31 year title drought by making the first 3 point buzzer winning shot in an NCAA National Basketball Championship game when Kris Jenkins received a trailing pass from Wildcats senior Ryan Arcidiacono to end the game 77-74.

The victory spoiled Carolina’s bid for a 6th title and could have been number 3 for Coach Roy Williams of the North Carolina Tarheels which would have allowed him to surpass his mention North Carolina Dean Smith.

Arcidiacono showed great unselfish play as he could have opted to drive the ball and take all the glory in.

Villanova Wildcats run by star point guard Arcidiacono had three plays that they are known for:

1. Ryan drives to the basket
2. Ryan kicks off to the wings
3. Pass off a trailing Kris Jenkins

These three play options were run by the Wildcats throughout the season and Ryan had full confidence on a smaller percentage shot from beyond the arc.

Arcidiacono notes — “We knew what play we were going to, We work on it every single day”.

Kris Jenkins has praise for their point guard — “For him to be so unselfish and give up the ball, it just shows what type of teammate he is”

The game was beautifully played with both teams hustling and coming back everytime the other was pulling away. With time remainig of 1 minute and 34 seconds and Villanova leading 70-64, Paige sinks a 3 point shot from the corner closing the gap by 3 – 70-67. With Arcidiacono giving up the ball from a half-court trap, Johnson sinks a bank shot from the inside to the score of 70-60.

Both teams fought hard, trading points and had the score tied at 74 all with an off-balance shot from Paige with 4.7 seconds remaining. With the Wildcats making an inbounds pass from the backcourt it was very likely that the game will go into overtime until Jenkins hit the game winning shot at the buzzer.

Tom Brady Extends Contract until 2019 as New England Patriots QB

in NFL

Tom Brady is set to complete 20 years with the New England Patriots as a verbal agreement has been reached for him to sign a 2-year contract extension with the team. He is under contract until 2017, with the extension he will remain a Patriot throughout the 2019 season at the age of 42.

Tom will be receiving less than the $9 & $10 million dollar contract in 2016 and 2017 respectively as the team cap space after that is $13 million dollars and a few players are expected to be re-signed — linebackers Jamie Collins, Dont’a Hightower, defensive end Chandler Jones and cornerback Malcolm Butler.

Tom Brady will eventually join Jason Hansen, Darrell Green and Matthew Slater as the only players in NFL history to spend 20 years in a single team.

It is going to be hard to imagine Brady in another uniform nor the New England Patriots without Brady.

The extension would give them 3 more years to develop 2014 second-round draft pick Jimmy Garoppolo.
