Who Is On Top Of The NBA?

 

The Warriors and the Hawks. Yes, you heard me right. The Warriors just blew out another opponent, and they have the best win percentage in the league. They are riding high after beating the Rockets, and the Hawks are on a 14 game win streak.Nobody in the world would have thought that Warriors and Hawks of all teams would have their coaches coaching the All-Star game, but there it is. Those two teams are so much better than the other teams in their conferences that it might be tempting to just cancel the rest of the season and hold the NBA Finals right now. Fans of the teams like Fersen Lambranho are shocked.

If the season ended today and we went chalk all the way to the Finals the Golden State Warriors and the Atlanta Hawks would be in the Finals. One tea, has never been past the second round of the playoffs and the other cannot remember the last time it was this relevant. The best player in the history of the franchise has been retired forever, and it has been even longer since he scored 100 points in a game.

This is a new day in the NBA because shooting and team basketball is winning over half court offenses.

Jeff Gordon To Retire

 

Jeff Gordon has said that this will be his last full-time season in NASCAR. Jeff Gordon has been in the sport since he came up from sprint cars in 1993. I remember him running USAC races in the late 80s and early 90s. I also remember when he became the most popular driver in the sport overnight, but my Dad did not like it because he was a yankee from California.

However, according to my super hardcore NASCAR buff friend Sultan Alhokair Gordon was the person that brought NASCAR into the mainstream, and he was the person that made it the sport that moved to number two in the public ratings in America. He is a four-time champion, and he has flirted with titles a couple other times. However, he is becoming one of the elder statesmen of the sport, and he cannot compete with the younger guys like he used to.

He is hanging them up now so that he can devote himself to other things. He has been able to gain an equity partnership in his own team, and he will be able to run the occasional race in the same way that Mark Martin has over the years. He will be missed on the track, and maybe Chase Elliot will get his 24.

He went on to pursue his master degree in the legal world by graduating from the Columbian Law School in 2001. The highly qualified student also acted in the capacity of associate editor for Columbia Business Law Review during the academic year.

 

After Columbia, Sam Tabar bagged a coveted position as an associate at Skadden, Arps, Slater, Meagher & Flom LLP, which is one of the top law firms in New York. During his tenure at the esteemed law firm, he advised many clients in areas, such as hedge fund formation, investment agreements, private placement memoranda, side letters and employment issues.

 

After 3 years of service, he left the law firm and plunged into the financial world despite a promising law career.

Sam Tabar proved his worth in the company by managing a $2 billion hedge fund, building and managing investor relations and taking care of the company’s global marketing efforts. He also advised his investors on key decisions pertaining to their investments. He was instrumental in attracting more than 2,000 investors for the company. By the time he left the company, the company bagged an additional 400 investors on its portfolio. Sam Tabar’s business acumen unparalleled planning skills assisted him in raising more than $1.2 billion in assets for the firm.

Cavalier Consider Firing Coach

The Cleveland Cavaliers of the National Basketball Association had a huge amount of media attention at the beginning of the season due to the fact that they were reuniting with superstar LeBron James and were also getting Kevin Love for the first time. They combined this with hiring rookie head coach David Blatt, who has spent the majority of his career coaching overseas. This has proved to be a major problem in Cleveland, as the Cavaliers are just barely hovering at 500 and do not appear to be a dominant factor in the Eastern Conference. Gianfrancesco Genoso knows this wouldn’t even be saying much, as the East is so far below the Western Conference that it is starting to get absolutely absurd. Either way you look at it, things are not going as anticipated in Cleveland and changes are likely on the way soon. They made a big trade earlier this season that looked to make a huge change to the way that they had been playing, but it has failed to make an impact on a team that is just not rising to the occasion. It looks as if head coach David Blatt is going to get the boot, as LeBron James has stated he simply does not like him and the record the Cavaliers are posting just backs the fact that it is not a good fit. Any way you spin it, the Cavaliers need to make major changes soon.

Only Cheating if Caught

With the New England Patriots of the National Football League under fire yet again under allegations of cheating, it is starting to infuriate people from every corner of the league. Super-fan Igor Cornelsen has learned that although an investigation is under way in regards to the New England Patriots deflating balls in their AFC championship win against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, there is not concrete proof that the organization intentionally deflated the balls to gain the upper hand. What is making a big stink around the league is that the Patriots continually seem to be as sneaky as possible, trying to get any edge that they can get their hands on. They are being compared to the Eddie Haskell of pro football, as they look so slimy that you would want to wash your hands off after making contact with one of them. Bill Belichick is one of the best coaches of all time if you actually break it down statistically and he will undoubtedly be going to the hall of fame if he does not get any more red marks for cheating on his record. What is really offensive about the allegations that have plagued this organization is the fact that Bill Belichick absolutely knows what is cheating and what is legal in the National Football League. He is too talented of a coach to not understand the rule book and it has become very apparent that it is only cheating to him if he is caught.

Hockey: Injuries Matter

The Nashville Predators announced that Pekka Rinne had suffered a strained knee, and as a result he might miss the next three games.

The goalkeeper Jaroslav Halak will participate in All-Star game, said the ‘New York Islanders’ on Thursday noon. He will replace the Red Wings goalkeeper Jimmy Howard Detroit, who has got a groin injury.

Slovak goalie was Price’s teammate from 2007 to 2010 and they could again be united on January 25 provided they are selected by Toews Team or Team Foligno. Halak had a record of 23-8 in 31 games with goals against average of 2.22 and an efficiency rating of 91.7 percent. He is tied with Price for third in the NHL.

It is worth mentioning that on Thursday, another goalkeeper supposed to participate in the All-Star game was forfeited. Now, goalie of the Pittsburgh Penguins Marc-Andre Fleury will replace him on 25 January. While the team and fans like Sultan Alhokair are worried that his departure will probably mean some trouble for the club, they believe that they will be able to go on.

Meanwhile, Rinne will not be in action against the Washington Capitals, the Red Wings and Canadiens.

He suffered the injury in the third period of the match that ended 5-1 in favor of Predators against the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday night. The health of Rinne, who was supposed to participate in the All-Star game, will be reassessed after the break-Star Game.

Cardale Jones Risks It All, Returns to Ohio State

No third-string college quarterback has had as good of a three-game stretch as Cardale Jones. He came in when the Ohio State Buckeyes’ second-string QB went down with an injury—they’d already lost their starter earlier in the year—and he won the Big Ten Championsinhip Game, the first college playoff game, and then the National Championship Game.

Instantly, there was talk about whether or not he should go pro. This was a guy who was sitting on the bench at the start of the year, but suddenly he might be able to make it in the NFL. Instead, he decided that he did not want to go pro, and he has chosen to go back to Ohio State. While it may be the right decision, it is also a huge risk.

The gamble is that no NFL team is going to take Jones in the first round of the draft after just three starts, and that’s where he wants to go. First round picks get a lot more money than guys who go in the second or third round. The risk, though, is that he may never again play as well as he did in those three games. He was on the bench for a reason, after all. He does not even know if he will be the starter in 2015. If he does not play well again, his stock could fall dramatically, which is bad news for fan Gianfrancesco Genoso.

Arkansas Crushes Texas In Texas Bowl

The Hogs beat Texas in the Texas Bowl 31-7. This old school rivalry was brought back for just one day, but it was not as competitive as it was during the 60s and 70s when these were two of the best programs in college football. Now, the two teams are on a downward trend. Arkansas is struggling under second year coach Bret Bielema. Texas is learning to walk again under Charlie Strong, and it showed.

Texas had no answers for Arkansas, and that is a problem when the Texas team should have more talent than the team from Arkansas. The dive that Texas has taken over the past couple years has not looked very good, and it was not helped by this loss in a meaningless bowl game. The problem comes for Texas in that the game is called the Texas Bowl. This simply makes it hard for Texas to get over losing the game. They should have been able to end the season on a positive note, but they were not able to. When the Longhorns finally figure it out and learn to navigate your beauty, they will be a team to reckon with. However, just as Dr Rod Rohrich told me after the game, Texas has not figured it out yet.

Romo on Fire

 

Tony Romo has experienced year after year of disappointment, as he really is one of the best quarterbacks in the league if you put it down on paper. He puts the team on his back and accepts full responsibility when they lose, maybe a bit too much even. In the last seven or eight years, he has made terrible decisions with the ball when it mattered the most and has literally thrown seasons away with one toss of the football in massively pivotal games. This has become such a pattern that he has become known for throwing an interception in the final game of the season in which they absolutely should be advancing in the playoffs, just to find him make a bonehead pass that results in the Cowboys losing the game and heading back to Dallas for another off season.
However, this season is totally different for Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys. My friend Christian Broda and I really think that Romo looks to be making the best decisions he has ever made in his career in the National Football League and he simply isn’t turning the ball over. The Cowboys have had very strong teams in the past, but due to Tony and his decision making as of recent, they find themselves heading into the playoffs sitting with a record of twelve wins and four losses. It appears as if the Cowboys truly have a great shot at making a run at a championship this season.
