LeBron no longer Rises

I could not help but smile, and cheer inside, as the Miami Heat were closed out of the NBA finals. Good riddance, LeBron! Ever since King James’ “decision” and the aftermath after, I have wanted to see the Miami Heat lose. And now we are all vindicated.

I wonder how the city of Cleveland reacted.

James took his talents to South Beach, and South Beach is where the Mavericks left him empty and frustrated. He is still tied for NBA titles with the Cavaliers he left behind.

Right from the start, the Mavericks took control of the game, scoring 32 points in the very first quarter. The Heat got back into the game in the second quarter, reducing the Mavericks lead to two points by halftime. Dallas opened up the third quarter just like the first, building their lead back to nine points and controlling the remainder of the game.

Bull smash Heat 103-82 and take game 1

Derrick Rose scored 28 points, Luol Deng contained LeBron James and the Chicago Bulls struck first in the Eastern Conference finals, pulling away to beat the Miami Heat 103-82 in Game 1 on Sunday night.

The Bulls are off to a good start in this series after sweeping the Heat during the regular season. They went on a 10-0 run midway through the third quarter, then pulled away in the fourth. As the final minutes ticked away, fans could not contain themselves, chanting “Over-rated!” and “Beat the Heat!” Game 2 is Wednesday night in Chicago, and they’ll certainly take another performance like this.

Green Bay has Dallas packing up for the season

Seven points. Four turnovers. A 38-point defeat that felt like 83. The last time the Cowboys lost a game by more was a 40-point loss to the Minnesota Vikings in a 1988 laugher quarterbacked by Steve Pelluer and coached by Tom Landry. This is officially the worst season since 1989 and with the New York Giants looming Sunday, it could get worse before it gets better. If it gets better.

Even noted Cowboys fan LeBron James has slam-dunked this season. In Twitter posts  last night he called his favorite team “officially the worst in the NFL” and called for “furniture moving.” Wonder if LeBron can play Safety?

Never thought I’d say this about my Cowboys but they are officially the worst team in the NFL right now even though the Bills are winless!

Aaron Rodgers threw 27-for-34 which is an amazingly great near 80% completion rate, adding in 3 touchdowns. He also scurried with the ball 5 times for 41 yards (over 8 yards a carry, not shabby!) including a 27-yarder. Dallas Defense, who?
My boy Greg Jennings had 7 catches for 80 yards and a score, and San Jose State’s James Jones had 8 catches for 123 yards and a score, and no fumble this time! Ryan Grant backups John Kuhn and Brandon Jackson combined for 26 carries, 92 yards and a score on the ground, as well as 6 receptions for 38 yards and another scoure, out of the backfield.
The defense amassed 4 sacks, 2 picks, and 2 fumble recoveries, including 2 scores. What a great night on primetime!
