The Saints Historic Drive Against the Eagles to NFC title game

in Basketball/NFL

The New Orleans Sainst was down 14-0 but made a historic 11-minute and 29-second drive that fueled a comeback win 14-20 and push them to the NFC title game. The drive took 18 plays, 92 yards the longest in the Saints history and by any team in the last 20 years.
 
Drew Brees threw two touchdown passes including the go-ahead points to Michael Thomas to secure their win.

Saints guard has this to say — “It was tough. I mean, it was one of the hardest drive I’ve been a part of, Saints guard Larry Warford said of a drive that actually lasted 22 plays and forced the Saints to gain a total of 117 yards because of three offensive penalties and one defensive penalty. I was out of breath getting down there … and everybody is tired. But you smell the end zone and you can’t give it away. You worked too hard for it when we were driving, and we finished it.”

Drew Brees has this to say — “I’m not sure if that’s a record. We went on a 117-yard drive to take the lead in the third quarter and really didn’t look back. That was the turning point the game.”

The historic 18 play drive is below:

Kryrie Irving Fuming as Celtics ‘Lacking’ Experience on a 105–103 Loss against Magic

in Basketball

The Celtics was only down by two points with 2.9 seconds left where Irving was in the backcourt and Gordon Hayward inbounded to Jayson Tatum who shot a jumper that fell off the rim. After that play Kyrie started waving his hand in anger.
Apparently Kyrie didn’t agree with the last play and instead of putting the ball in the hands of Tatum he wanted the inbounds to go to Al Horford who will eventually set up a final play to Kyrie taking the last shot.
In an interview after the game Kyrie said their struggles can be attributed to — “Experience. It’s the best thing I can say is experience, We’re lacking it, and because of that, we have a lot of learning left to do. So we have a lot of ground to make up in that aspect…

I know from the majority of the fact that we’re better than most teams in this league, It’s just going out and proving it every single night and demanding it and actually showing it. It’s not easy to be great.”

This is Kyrie’s response on the Celtics lacking experience — pic.twitter.com/MPSxczGyBY

Experience needs time and even if you stack your team with veterans it still requires time and experience of playing with each other. The good news is that the Celtics are stocked with a mixture of veteran and young talents.

The Celtics have now lost two in a row and stands at 25-17 records.

How does Conor McGregor Boxing License Impact UFC?

in Basketball/UFC

On Wednesay, Conor McGregor has been issued a boxing license by the California State Athletic Commission and people are now excited to see Conor step on a boxing ring and make a name for himself. He already became the first UFC fighter to hold titles in two divisions after defeating Eddie Alvarez in UFC 205 and would want to add opportunities and fan base.

What does this mean to UFC? This is mostly a payday move and fighters has been complaining that UFC who has recently been sold for $4 Billion dollars is a billion dollar business built upon the sweat and blood of its fighters, fighters who are not paid well. Conor McGregor is one of the rare highest paid fighters in UFC who netted $40 million dollars in UFC 205 but he did bring in the viewers as UFC 205 brought in the highest gate sales in history with $17.7 million dollars followed only by the $13.5 million dollars in 1999 Lenox Lewis vs Evander Holyfield. UFC 205 also brought in 1.9 million PPV buys the biggest in the company’s history. Mayweather netted $230 million dollars for his fight against Pacquiao with a PPV buys of 4 million viewers. The $40 million payday of Conor McGregor on the 1.9 million PPV buys seems spare change to old school boxing.

While UFC fighters know this, Conor McGregor is in a position to demand as per his latest statement toward UFC — “If you want to come at me, if you want me to stick around and help service that debt and continue to push the company, bring me on board, for real. “I need to be set for life for this. If you want me to be truly on on board, then I need to be all-in on this proper, as an owner, and have an equity stake in the company. That’s what I’m looking for.”

While the boxing license doesn’t immediately mean Conor McGregor is going to fight Floyd Mayweather because Conor McGregor is under contract with UFC and there are only three scenarios where Conor can get a shot:

1. UFC willingly allows Conor McGregor to enter the boxing ring
2. UFC cashes in big with a Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather right
3. Conor McGregor finds a way to get out of contract from UFC

The only likely scenario that will happen here is #2 wherein UFC will make lots of money off this fight which would still mean nothing for Conor McGregor because his primary objective is to get a $100 million dollar payday on a boxing fight.

Given this scenario there isn’t going to be an immediate impact for UFC as they control the cards and while Conor is their biggest fighter, a single loss by Conor to an upcoming rematch with Nate Diaz or another fighter could exponentially drop his ratings again while UFC remains afloat.

Long-term impact would mean that a lot of fighters would be demanding for higher earnings or looking for a crossover to boxing. The pressure it would bring to UFC from a growing number of fighters with higher demands would keep on increasing and sooner or later UFC will have to make changes to their structure.

Conor McGregor boxing license is more of a wake-up call for now, but not strong enough to deliver a knockout punch on the UFC negotiating table.
