Finally Dirk Nowitzki's Time?

There have been so many great NBA players over the years who have failed to win a championship, there are too many to name. But as his Dallas Mavericks lead the 2011 NBA Finals 3 games to 2 over the Miami Heat, it seems like it may be the time that Dirk Nowitzki crosses his name off that list.

Terrelle Pryor Will Regret Turning Down the CFL

After Terrelle Pryor left Ohio State amidst a ton of scrutiny and controversy for trading merchandise for tattoos  illegal dealings and car dealers and such, one of the first offers for his services was from the Canadian Football League. The Saskatchewan Roughriders won the rights to negotiate with him and sent him a tentative offer. However, Pryor rejected the offer and seems set on applying for consideration in the NFL supplemental draft. Which, in my opinion, is an opportunity he will regret.

Looking for LeBron James...

This NBA Finals, after a sick Dirk Nowitzki led the Dallas Mavericks to a 86-83 victory last night in Game 3, is all knotted up but it really should not be. Why not? Because LeBron James has not stepped up like he has had to and it clearly showed in Game 3 as he only scored eight points. He is the single most reason why this series is tied. And if the Heat want to hold off the Dirk-led Mavs, James has to step up.

Can Mark Jackson Succeed Coaching the Warriors?

Not exactly coaching attire...
The big news of this evening is that ESPN/ABC NBA analyst Mark Jackson has been hired as the new head coach of the Golden State Warriors. Jackson has shown interest in becoming a coach and has been in the running for jobs in the past, unlike his compadre Jeff Van Gundy, who seems satisfied in the broadcast booth. As the Warriors is not an easy job and Jackson has never coached before, can he find success? Or will he fall flat on his face?

Have the Vancouver Canucks Sealed Up the Stanley Cup?

A magnificent performance from Alex Burrows, a couple nights after biting Patrice Bergeron, led the Canucks to a 3-2 overtime victory in Game 2 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals. And with that victory by Vancouver, they took a 2-0 series lead over the Boston Bruins. And as the series heads back to Boston for Game 3, can the Bruins make this a series? Or is Lord Stanley's Cup headed to Terminal City?
