In the NBA, it appears that wherever the Cleveland Cavaliers’ LeBron James goes, people follow. Everyone wants a ring, or more rings, and they know that teaming up with LeBron, Kyrie Irving, and Kevin Love is a pretty smart way to get that done. And now, a former champ, Shawn Marion, is joining the Cavs. Marion still has a few decent years left in the tank, but his veteran presence should really help the Cavs get that title. The team is now a good mix of young guys, guys entering their prime, and veterans.
In the NFL, the 49ers are prepping for their Super Bowl season in their brand new, state-of-the-art stadium in Santa Clara. On Sunday, they played their first game in the new park, but it wasn’t pretty. Peyton Manning and the Broncos came in and completely shut down the Niners. San Francisco didn’t even get any points on the board. Sure it’s just the pre-season, but hopefully the Niners can turn things around.
Don’t get too excited, but the Seattle Mariners are relevant again. They have been in no man’s land the past 7 years, but if the playoffs started today, they would be in. Additionally, the Kansas City Royals have been playing their best baseball since 2003, and also looked poised to grab a playoff spot. We could have some different teams to root for this post-season.No comments
