The 2016 NBA Draft is stating to take shape, at least on paper- LSU’s Ben Simmons #1 to the Philadelphia 76ers, Duke’s Brandon Ingram #2 to the L.A. Lakers, and International prospect Dragan Bender, possibly the next Kristaps Porzingis, #3 to the Boston Celtics.

So who goes #4 to the Phoenix Suns? Oklahoma scoring Buddy Hield, the consensus national player of the year? Or Providence‘s Kris Dunn, the draft’s best point guard?

Manchester United didn’t make the Louis van Gaal sacking official until Monday night, and it’s been reported that the announcement delay was in respect to Van Gaal’s wishes. We should all respect that as the Dutchman earned it. What’s the delay in announcing in the appointment of Jose Mourinho though?

Can’t understand the reasoning here as everyone has known The Special One is coming since Saturday morning. We’ve also heard rumors of this since December. Why continue dragging this out? Club legend Eric Cantona isn’t totally 100% impressed with the idea of this hiring decision either.

Arsenal FC finished second in the Premier League this season, but they did top the table in one category- money made from the league! Yes indeed, the North London side topped the table in club payments received from the English top flight, £101.952 million. Second on the list were Manchester City at £96.972 million, followed by Manchester United at £96.477 million and Tottenham Hotspur with £95.222 million.

Believeland: Sweet Masochism for Cavaliers, Browns, Indians Fans

cleveland-browns-believeland

The ESPN Films 30 for 30 series is like eating pizza or having sex- it’s very difficult to get it wrong. Most of the time, the experience is very enjoyable. That said “Believeland,” the latest 30 for 30 entry, is a very solid entertaining viewing experience, and I’d rather watch Believeland again than just about anything else on television, but…..

…it falls a bit short by 30 for 30’s lofty standards, and it does so because it adheres way too strongly to the corporate culture and ethos of ESPN.

Memphis Depay Says His MUFC Place Secure Despite LVG Sacking

memphis depay

Manchester United purchased the contract of winger Memphis Depay from PSV Eindhoven a little over a year ago when the two clubs agreed upon a reportedly £25 million fee on May 7, 2015. The leading scorer in the Dutch Eredivisie, then Manager Louis van Gaal gave Depay his chance in the English top flight after working with the winger on Team Netherlands.
