LeBron James "I'm Blessed"

Shortly after winning his second consecutive NBA Finals and second Finals MVP, LeBron James made the following statement after being asked about his haters.

"Listen, for me I can't worry about what everybody says about me,' he said after the game. 'I'm LeBron James, from Akron, Ohio - from the inner-city - I'm not even supposed to be here. Every night I walk into a locker room and see LeBron James on the jersey, I'm blessed."

Powerful statement from the best basketball player in the world. Even one of the biggest moments in his epic career, he still maintains to keep life in prospective.

Congrats to LeBron James and the Miami Heat!

Javaris Crittenton Wanted for Murder

The FBI are currently looking for former Lakers' player Javaris Crittenton after shooting a 22 year old mother of four in Atlanta,GA. It is said that Crittenton mistaken the woman for the thief of some his Jewelry. The woman's boyfriend said that Crittenton shot at the woman with a assault rifle from his black SUV.

It is believed that Crittenton is currently in Los Angeles after getting on a flight from Atlanta to LAX.

It's hard for me to react to this. Crittenton is definitely going to get the book for this. It's another example of athletes making bad decisions. First of all, why does he have an assault rifle? You're not in the army. Second of all, who blindly shoots at someone in the dark hoping that it's the person they think it is? There is no excuse for what Crittenton did. I condolences go out to the woman and her family for this tragic event.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Crittenton should contact their local law enforcement agency, the Atlanta FBI Office, tel. (404) 679-9000, or the Los Angeles FBI Office, tel. (310) 477-6565.

NFL Players to Watch 2011: Peyton Manning

For the first time in over ten years, the Indianapolis Colts have a question at quarterback. Colts QB, Peyton Manning is coming off of neck surgery and will most likely miss at least the first week of the regular season but its no doubt that you will see the veteran quarterback within the first few weeks of the regular season. The Colts have attempted to handle the situation by signing recently retired QB Kerry Collins.

Kerry Collins is a can be a very good replacement for Manning until he is able to return, but if the Colts are wanting to make the playoffs and possibly the Super Bowl, they will need the superstar QB at the reins. However, is Peyton Manning still the star we are use to seeing.

At age 35, Manning is almost in the twilight of his career. Although he had a career high in passing yds last season (4,700 yds), but Manning and the Colts struggled throughout the season and barely made the playoffs and lost to the Jets in the wild card.

Manning and several key players for the Colts are aging.  How long will this team be able to remain competitive? I think that the team that the Colts have right now is not quite good enough to make it back to the Super Bowl. Manning will need more help from his running game and his defense if he is going to return to the Super Bowl.

Another question is how long will Manning be able to beat the defenses he goes up against? Many people mention that Michael Vick is the most unique QB to ever play the game but there can be argument that it may very well be Peyton Manning. Manning plays football like a chess game. He tries to out-think the defenses before the snap instead of relying on his instincts during the play like the other QBs in the league. Most of the time, Manning does in fact beat the defense but when the defense can figure out what he is going to do then he and the Colts are in trouble ( i.e. pick in the 4th quarter of Super Bowl XLIV).

Unless there are major changes in the upcoming seasons, I feel that the Colts will fade into mediocrity. The offense needs to be more balanced, relying more on the run game and not Manning's arm.

24-7 Mayweather/ Ortiz Episode 1

Floyd, it's about time. The 41-0 boxer and arguable the greatest boxer in his weight class if not all all weight classes Floyd Mayweather is finally back,this time facing the 24 year old Victor Ortiz. And just like his recent fights, there will be another season of 24/7 with a new episode every week leading up to the fight on Sept 17.

The first episode premiered tonight and just like the previous, Mayweather is putting on a show. He has an arrogant tv persona that will rival the best WWE heels. But that what makes him and the series so compelling. No one want to watch a boring boxer prepare for the fight. They want a story. The want emotion. They want to be entertained and that exactly what Floyd delivers.

Many people claim that Chad Ochocinco or Terrell Owens are the biggest divas in professional sports but Mayweather has them beat hands down. What make Floyd different though is that he always backs it up with a professional record of 41-0. There is no one who works harder than Mayweather and it amazing how he has been able to stay hungry after all these years, never having a time when he slipped up.

I think this fight will be another notch on Mayweather's illustrious career. Hopefully if he wins, we will finally get to see the fight fans having been wanting for years against Manny Pacquiao

I don't know how long the video below is going to work so you better watch it as soon as you can if you are interested.
