Monday Morning Sports Session – 5/4/2013

Boxing

Floyd Mayweather is 36 years old, and coming into the fight with Robert Guerrero people wondered if age would finally catch up with him.  Well it didn’t as Mayweather dominated Guerrero for 12 rounds and made the fight look easy as he coasted to a 44 – 0 record on Saturday night.  The pre-fight atmosphere had been chippy as there was a lot of trash talking between both fighters and their camps, and Guerrero would tell anyone that would listen how he was not intimidated by Floyd Mayweather one bit.  After the first few rounds he had no answer for Mayweather, and towards the end of the fight Guerrero actually seemed to concede the loss and mailed it in.  The question on everyone’s mind now is who will Floyd Mayweather Jr. fight next?  That is unclear, but Mayweather is scheduled to do five more fights with the deal he signed with Showtime, and everyone hopes to see a fight with Canelo Alvarez.

NBA

The Brooklyn Nets lost Game 7 of their first round playoff series to the Chicago Bulls on Saturday night.  What makes the loss a bit worse is the fact that the Bulls were missing three starters, and were essentially playing mostly bench players.  The Nets played with no heart while the Bulls were all heart and wanted the gameBoston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Seven more than the Nets did.  There were questions after the game as to whether the Nets interim head coach P.J. Carlesimo would be retained as the permanent head coach for next season.  On Sunday that question was answered as the Nets announced that they will fire Carlesimo which means there will be a new coach in Brooklyn next season.

NBA

The NBA announced it’s MVP award on Sunday and the person was Miami Heat player LeBron James who was named the 2013 Most Valuable Player.  James has won the award four times during his NBA career.  He received 120 out of a possible 121 first-place votes, with New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony receiving one vote.  James also beat out, Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant, New York Knicks forward Anthony, Los Angeles Clippers guard Chris Paul, Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant, San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Paker, San Antonio Spurs forward/center Tim Duncan, and Houston Rockets guard James Harden.  Is LeBron James that great, or is it that the NBA just lacks the overall star power that it used to have where winning four MVP’s would not be as easy as James has made it seem.

NBA

The Oklahoma City Thunder had a hard time putting away the Houston Rockets in their first round series, and were face with a Memphis Grizzlies team that was firing on all cylinders.  The Grizzlies coming off of a first round series win against the Los Angeles Clippers were game and ready for the Thunder as they controlled most of the game.  The Thunder went on a furious run late in the fourth quarter, and with the Thunder trailing by one in the final minute, Derek Fisher stole the ball away from Memphis’ Mike Conley, allowing Kevin Durant into the open court with a chance to put Oklahoma City on top.  Durant pulled up and connected on a jumper with 11.1 seconds left for the last of his 35 points, lifting the Thunder to a 93-91 victory.  Derek Fisher has been contributing heavily for the Thunder with Russell Westbrook’s injury that has put him out for the playoffs, and as a result the Thunder have been able to regain their composure after losing two straight games to Houston in the first round.

    Sources SVP ?Parce que sur Wikipedia, on parle d’une fourchette (pourtant énorme ) de 65000 à 500000 caméras à Londres. On est loin de vos 2 millions Mr Sam.Sinon, quel rapport entre les caméras londoniennes et celles des affreux mollahs ? Vous pensez que l’Angleterre est une dictature ?
