The 63-year-old Chicago native run three-decades with the NBA. In January 2016, Danny was the most voted as the league’s best referee when the corresponsal of Los Angeles Times Broderick Turner conducted an anonymous survey among the coaches and players. He’s been in the league for a long time and most of the teams respect him. He had told many stars to shut up but at the same time he knows there is an order and he gives certain players more respect than others. Danny gives a happy medium. One month later, he received his third opportunity to referee the NBA All-Star game.

He told the press it was an honor even though many players and officials don’t mind some time off at that point in the campaign, also that the recognition make his energy up and gave him a second wind. His long tenure and respect received from players and coaches alike will eventually earn him a place in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Game. There are only 16 officials enshrined in the facility located in Springfield, Massachusetts, including the referees Earl Strom and Dick Bavetta.

Alex Rodriguez and 2014 PED Suspension

On Wednesday, the three-time American League MVP Alex Rodriguez had an interview with the Hollywood reporter Marisa Guthrie. The player explained that sitting out the entire 2015 MLB season due to a suspension for some drugs performing-enchancing was hitting rock bottom. He also admitted there were some dark moments during his year away and some night in Miami when he was close to “tap out.”

Rodriguez is one of the best players of his generation. Last August he stepped away from the game with a .295/.380/.550 career triple-slash line, 329 stolen bases and 696 home runs. He also earned 14 All-Stars selections and 10 Silver Sluggers Awards along his MVP trophies. Yet the PED suspension and a serie of misfortunes created a dark cloud over his illustrious career. It also created doubt about the legitimacy of his elite numbers and led him to consider finishing his career. He said to Guthrie that maybe in some years this situation can be one of the best things that happened in his life, lessons like this that made him focus on what was really important.

His career rose to prominence in 1994 with the Seattle Mariners before making a lot of money with the Texas Rangers and New York Yankees. He also worked in ABC’s Shark Tank and is shooting a show called Back in the Game for CNBS. Yet it is unclear whether Rodriguez will be remembered as one of the baseball’s most feared sluggers for over two decades of just another face. He hadn’t played baseball in two years due to two hip surgeries, two knee surgeries and other scandals. The best thing of his story is that A-Rod never led those mistakes define the way he is, and made him a story of “how to fix the mistakes of your past.”

The news were announced by the head coach and the president of basketball operations Tom Thibodeau.

The rookie-scale extension would have to be ready one day prior the regular season minimum, and it would pay Wiggins $25.5 million next season. Statistically talking, last season was a good one for Wiggins, as he averaged a career-high 23.6 points per game with a 4.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 0.4 blocks and  1.0 steal. He also shot 45.2 percent from the field, setting a new personal best 35.6 percent of the time from long range. In one-on-one situations, he performed adequately but in off-ball settings the player he’s one of the league’s least valuable defenders. He played with three different coaches in three different years, something that can affect his performance.

The 22-years-old player is key in the T-Wolves, along Karl-Anthony Towns, being the major players in the Western Conference for years to come. During offseason, Minnesota added to their lineup Jimmy Butler, a trade with the Chicago Bulls. This new acquires will give the team a chance to end a 13-years drought. The teams expects he will fully commits to understanding and executing the defensive schemes so he can explode his full potential. Wiggins can still be one of the NBA’s best players, he just need to develop discipline in off-ball settings and earning such status. Wiggins is one of the former rookies of the year and the decision to take him on the team was betting on his future capability and a standout upward trajectory.

Kid´s promises in MLB

 

Rafael Dever is pledging to stay on Boston Red Sox lineup for August. Is a quite amazing player that can put on his back the weight of a team. So common on these days when kids are facing a heavy challenge in front and they are complying with great personality. That Wednesday afternoon, Yankees showed two important kids, Luis Severino with 23 years old and Clint Frazier with 22 years old. Absolutely incredible what these two boys have done with Yankees, they almost set them in first place for the first time this month. So, kids everywhere in MLB.

Back to Dever, just in his second game last Wednesday, he put two hits becoming in a long home run who ended in a 4-0, taking first position for now at the Al East. On defense, Dever has to proved more if he wants to take third base after Eduardo Nunez got a deal in Sox. If it`s about home runs Nunez has 38 home runs and Dever with only twenty, has 21 home runs in minor leagues. Stats are stats. The tremendous long home run from Dever was 427 feet, 95 feet high and 108 mph. It was an amazing play and after all, the eyes are watching him closely, reason to made Boston Sox reject an exchange for Chris Sale.

And getting into Boston and Yankees everlasting rivalry, i`m guessing and assuming that both will have an outstanding regular season ending and entering playoffs with no problem. Both, are in good conditions. And perhaps, they face each other, keeping history alive and giving us a great series. Teams need to follow these kids and project them in positive way since Boston and New York is always competing in everything. The maximum baseball confrontation is here!

On Monday, Baltimore Ravens president Richard W. Cass said to CNN that the team has been spoken with Colin Kaepernick and is considering signing the free-agent quarterback. Ravens owner Stephen Bisciotti said this move will upset some people. They hope they will do the best for the team and balance that with the support of the fans. As the club is monitoring the fans’ opinion and figuring out what’s the right tact. The decision for the Ravens is a weighing decision. As some players like Raven Ray Lewis and other current players are in disagree about signing Kaepernick.

The player remained unsigned after he voided his contract with the San Francisco 49ers in March. He threw for 2,241 yards and 16 touchdowns with four interceptions in 12 games with the team in 2016. NFL corresponsal Ian Rapoport said the conversations between Kaepernick-Ravens were “very real” and that they sound like a real possibility. Kaepernick recently has been outspoken about some social issues and protested last season when he said “the country oppresses black people” by taking a knee during the national anthem. In May, the Giants received feedback from fans who voiced their displeasure over the possibility that a Giants player could protest like Kaepernick.

On Thursday, the head coach from Baltimore John Harbaugh said he had built a relationship with the player, which started when John’s brother coached the 49ers during his first four years with the team. The coach thinks the Ravens had at least considered bringing Kaepernick to the team as he considers him an excellent player and believes he’ll play in the National Football League this year. Kaepernick would be a strong competition for Baltimore’s current backup, Ryan Mallett. Mallet has thrown for 1,779 yards, seven touchdowns and 10 interception in his 19 career NFL games.

     The young player caught 288 passes for 4,122 yards and 35 touchdowns across his three NFL seasons since the Giants took him with the 12th overall pick in the draft of 2014. He reached a triple-digit catches last year with 101 grabs for 1,367 yards and 10 touchdowns. He told the press he wants to become the league’s highest-paid player. While there is no doubt of his talent, he had some off-field issues and on-field antics who made the team concerned about the amount of risk involved in a long-term and lucrative extension.

      The president told the reporters that Beckham is a star in every sense of the word and that presents certain challenges, but the team will live with those challenges every day of the week as long as they had a player like that. Beckham may not get his wish of becoming the NFL’s best-paid player with a massive contract handed out to quarterbacks and edge-rushers. With that said, he will be inside the top 50 to near or at top of the wide receiver list if a new contract does get done with the Giants. Even though he is under the team’s control for two more years.

Real Madrid gets to the Super Cup by winning over Juventus in the last UEFA Champions Cup with a disquieting four to one and becoming the second team with two consecutive finals. Can`t ignore to mention the two goals of Cristiano Ronaldo highlighting their great performance during the whole season. As a soccer fan, have to accept that Real Madrid went into a very builded team with Zidane’s coaching skills which are too similar as his soccer playing attributes. Toni Kroos, Isko, Casemiro and Cristiano Ronaldo, of course, understood very well the playing system.

On the other side, Manchester United won the UEFA Europa League by defeating Ajax Amsterdam with goals of Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan. Definitely, this team is increasing their soccer after a couple of Champions League failures. The Reds is a classic european team who deserves first position boards and be pushing for trophies. For some reason, they stopped being leaders in England and dropping off big competition.

Well, soccer boys, let`s wait a little longer to see what happens. Now we need to enjoy saturday`s soccer game at Miami, Barcelona against Real Madrid, for the second time history, these two teams play overseas, there`s none friendly matches between these two. And definitely everybody will be talking or maybe gossiping about Neymar`s arrangement. From his side, will be worried in scoring goals as usual and providing a good preseason game.

Interesting and curious facts: This will be the tenth game between these two teams. Real Madrid has won four, Manchester two and four draws. The white house has scored twenty goals and Manchester six teen. If you let me give a prediction, take Real Madrid all the way.

Market`s breakdown this week: Neymar about to be Parisian

 

Too much media covering in the past week. Nobody understands his intentions, did he get bored about being third in a soccer equation? Or is just about the money? How much money PSG can give away? Will that transfer give some cash flow to the soccer business? His profile never pointed to this insane move. Will answer one by one. First, and personally talking, Neymar`s best skills have been developed in Barcelona but it looks the show still easy when you are surrounded by stars and golden balls. His protagonism maybe is not enough because of Mess, Iniesta, Rakitic and Suarez media eclipsed. He needs to understand what`s his role is; it’s like being a production assistant for a movie, and without him, the structure falls apart. The same could happen next in PSG when Di Maria, Cavanni, Dani Alves gets media attention from their neat and stunning plays. Soccer is about being collective, not individual. To me, that`s a not valid argument when choosing where to go. If he wants the golden ball, be more patient and wait two more years at Barcelona.

Yes, certainly, if the deal is positive, Dybala, Coutinho and Griezmann will be on the scope of Barcelona’s interest,  looking for a replacement in an affordable deal. Sampaoli, head coach of Argentina’s team, will turn on this deal for sure. Plus, who will say no by playing with Messi in an offensive strategy? Yes, maybe my eyesight is looking to Barcelona`s side instead of the benefit, Neymar can get from the deal.

PSG money machine is too much. What’s the deal with Oil Business from Middle East investing in soccer? Let me give the amount again: two hundred and fifty millions of euros, rescission clause only. Fuuu… Keeping myself calm, Barcelona can train new players in the next years. La Masia es one of best soccer schools from the planet. These boys really put their heart in soccer. And yes, probably this money will get into a few executive and director pockets, at least in a fancy dinner. But is true, that some money will be send into education. Good players will come up soon.

Dallas Cowboys backfield getting tough

Good news for Dallas Cowboys! they announced the support of Ronnie Hillman in their backfield. With 25 years old, he started  his career in NFL with Denver Broncos during the period of 2012 to 2015 and then, got moved to the Minnesota Vikings and San Diego Chargers the same year. It looks that he will get the consistency he needs, due to the goes and comes from the last years. Dallas is convinced of his running skills and since now they lost Ezekiel Elliott because of disciplinary action, is the perfect timing to add a pretty similar player.

His top season was on 2015 with 11 games played, ran for 863 yards and caught 24 passes for 111 yards. Won the Super Bowl 50 defeating Carolina Panthers 24 -10 and getting 3 rushing yards. After that, Denver resigned him for a $2 million contract on April 2016, but unexpectedly got released on September 2016. After that, Hillman has been playing in soft ground.

Dallas Cowboys is keeping their concerns in a high roof. They also signed to other veterans Darren McFadden and Alfred Morris in order to stable the line and thinking for a replacement of Lance Dunbar. Remember that both were discussed by the board on who to choose, at the end of the day, they took both. Morris skillset is quite interesting and their social care inspired the Dallas board. Last year, he took off before a game to support employees of a company who were getting dismissed, a player that never forgets where he come from, is a player with integrity and that’s for sure.  Back in football game, for Dallas Cowboys fans is a good augury on having a well established backfield line and that means having these three guys playing together and command the actions.

Today`s situation in Pittsburgh Steelers

 

In today’s Pittsburgh Steelers oversight, they are expecting to sign Le´Veon Bells and James Connor. These incorporations will definitely level the team and boost everybody to the preseason. Remember that James Connor is the leader of the top-selling jerseys at Dick`s Sporting Goods nationwide. His reputation is a big thing since he overcame a cancer and got drafted by Steelers due to his running skills. Everything is pointing out that he will share the prime carriers with veterans Knile Davis and Fitzgerald Toussaint after his hamstring injured which distanced him from offseason workouts.

In the past days, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger got amazed of his pass-catching skill and is very sure he will be a good input to Steelers this year long. James Saxon stated to Espn: “He runs the football downhill, he can bend, he can catch the football. He’s tough, he’s smart, he’s a guy who will come here and work every day.” Pittsburgh fans have to be very happy and distress for the coming season.

Regarding, Le´Veon Bells, the agreement is not totally closed. On Thursday’s practice, he got dismissed, unsettling the line and expecting several reactions from their teammates. Some of them, understood that it will be unworthy getting an injury at this point when a contract is not close. The most worrying part as per head coach is the lack of team-building which could be set for the third preseason game. So in other words, he is looking for a bigger deal than just a year contract offer, this is about money as usual in NFL. No matter what, these strategies from players always lead to better conditions.  Despite the money, Pittsburgh Steelers can be secure that Bell`s incorporation will mean a tough offense with a running backer who is not common to injures.

Certainly, the situation in Pittsburgh looks in order and good to go for Preseason First Game against Giants on August 11th.
