Serena Sportsperson Of Year, Patriots Blount Out, Ravens Sign Mallett, Dwight Howard Unhappy


Serena Williams 2Serena Williams was named the 2015 “Sportsperson of the Year” by Sports Illustrated. Williams posted, “This year was spectacular for me. For Sports Illustrated to recognize my hard work, my dedication, and my sheer determination gives me hope to continue on and do better.” At 34 years old, Williams won 53 of 56 matches and remained ranked #1 ever week. Congratulations Serena!


In the NFL, the football Gods must truly want to challenge the Patriots this year.  In the past 2 months, they’ve already lost their up-and-coming phenom running back Dion Lewis, then it was Brady’s trusted receiver Julian Edelman, and then Gronkowsky suffered an injury that will keep him from playing at 100% the rest of the season.  Now it has been reported that their starting running back LeGarrett Blount is out for the season.  The Pats are still in line to make a deep run in the playoffs, but it won’t be easy without a healthy team.
Elsewhere in the NFL, the Baltimore Ravens season is officially over, but that didn’t keep them from signing troubled quarterback Ryan Mallett.  Mallett was cut from the Houston Texans 2 months ago for failing to make a team flight.  Apparently, he was such a head case, the Texans couldn’t deal with him.  Mallett has said that he has dealt with all of his off-the-field issues, and now feels ready to win some games with the Ravens.  The Ravens desperately need Mallett, as they already lost their starter Joe Flacco for the season, as well as back-up Matt Schaub for the next few weeks.  Quarterbacking the Ravens is likely Mallett’s last chance to prove he belongs in this league.


In the NBA, surprise surprise, Dwight Howard is unhappy again.  He said that he was tired of playing second fiddle to James Harden.  The odd thing about this statement is that the reason he left Orlando for Houston is that he wanted to be surrounded by a winning team so he could get to a championship.  Howard always wants attention, however and it’s likely the Rockets will trade him, as that is bad for chemistry for the rest of the team. It’s possible Howard will be picked up by another team such as Boston or Sacramento.
