42-0, come on Manny, ‘Let’s go’

Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. won yet another fight, knocking out a dirty boxer by the name of Victor Ortiz.

Apparently, nobody taught Ortiz the first rule in boxing, which is to protect yourself at all times. Mayweather now has a record of 42-0. If he wins seven more fights without losing, he will have the same record as legendary boxer Rocky Marciano (49-0-0).

Nobody in boxing can even come close to Floyd right now. Many people will say Manny Pacquiao (53-3-2) can beat him. If Manny can beat Floyd, which he can’t do, then what is he waiting for? If Pacquiao is truly better, why won’t he agree to the drug test just before the fight?

Maybe Pacquiao is taking performance-enhancing drugs? Like Mayweather said, “If you want to be the best, take the test.”

Until somebody can beat Floyd, he is the best. So, if Pacquiao is the best and can supposedly beat Floyd, in which case Manny would be the best, he needs to take the drug test. Many Pacquiao should just stay a politician, because if he fights Floyd, he will get knocked out.

One final note: why does Pacquiao, who is scheduled to fight Juan Manuel Marquez on Nov. 12, keep fighting Floyd’s leftovers?

Eagles are going to fly

Intern Cheyenne quickly has grown to be a fan of the Eagles, who have had quite the offseason. Here's his take on how Philadelphia will fare this year:

The Philadelphia Eagles advanced to the playoffs last season with a 10-6 record, and this season is going to be even better.

In fact, the Eagles are going to be so good I can guarantee they will win the Super Bowl. The Green Bay Packers may have beaten the Eagles during Wild Card Weekend last season, but they won’t this year.
Who is the quarterback for the Packers? It’s not Michael Vick, so who really cares? Vick will be the MVP of the NFL this coming season, not Aaron Rodgers or Tom Brady.

Why? Think about it. When was the last time you saw Brady run for a first down? Vick is great when running, not to mention throwing on the run. He’s the most exciting player in the NFL, and the spotlight is on the Eagles — not the Packers or Patriots.

Enough about the soon-to-be league MVP. The Eagles are really having a terrible off-season (that’s sarcasm). I mean, all they did was sign Nnamdi Asomugha — the most prized free agent during the offseason — Jason Babin, Vince Young, Cullen Jenkins and Ronnie Brown. They dumped the dead weight known as Kevin Kolb and, in return, acquired Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.

Vince Young called the Eagles a “Dream Team.” And he’s right. Young, though didn’t promise seven championships like that guy on the Miami Heat — I seemed to have forgotten his name. Actually Vince Young didn’t say they were going to win anything.

They’ll simply let their play do the talking.

LeBron doesn't perform under Heat

The Miami Heat were the favorite to win the NBA championship this year. LeBron James, who made his “Decision last summer,” promised at least seven champions when he was introduced, saying, “It’s gonna be easy.”

Firstly, how can LeBron and the Heat win more than seven championships when LeBron, Wade and Bosh are only under contract for six years? If it will be easy for the Heat to win seven championships, Year 1 must have been a mulligan. When LeBron said the fans (those who rooted against him) all will wake up with the same life the day after the Heat lost, he was right. LeBron woke up without a championship ring, and so did the rest of us.

One of the main reasons the Heat lost in the finals was because LeBron can’t finish a game. In the fourth quarter of the six finals games, LeBron scored a grand total of 21 points while making 7 of 23 shots. That’s 30.4 percent if you’re counting at home.

LeBron might not get a chance to win that coveted ring next season unless the NBA lockout ends. Even if there is basketball, the Heat will not win a championship. All the other teams will get better, but Miami won’t. They don’t have enough money to add better players.

In my opinion, the Heat will not win a championship with LeBron, Wade and Bosh. Even the Celtics’ Big 3 was able to win a championship. and they are all past their prime. LeBron, Wade and Bosh are in their prime and they didn’t win.

Bulls To-Do List

Intern Cheyenne, the biggest Chicago Bulls fan we know, has a plan for the Bulls to get past the Eastern Conference finals, where they lost 4-1 to the Miami Heat:

"The Chicago Bulls ended the 2010-11 regular season with the best record in the NBA at 62-20. Chicago’s defense was solid, allowing the second-fewest points per game, the lowest opponent field goal percentage and the lowest opponent 3-point field goal percentage.

Unfortunately, the Bulls’ season game to an end when the Miami Heat beat them 4-1 in the Eastern Conference finals. In that series, Chicago allowed just 87.6 points per game but averaged just 85.4.

Therefore, changes must be made.

The Chicago Bulls need another scorer; MVP point guard Derrick Rose can’t do it alone. Judging by the numbers, the Bulls’ defense doesn’t really need any work. Chicago needs a good starting shooting guard.

Who is a scoring shooting guard on the free-agent market this summer? Unrestricted free agent Jamal Crawford is a scoring shooting guard. Crawford averaged 14.2 points per game while coming off the bench for Atlanta. The Chicago Bulls also need someone to defend LeBron James, should they meet up with the Heat in the playoffs again. Small forward Luol Deng is a good player but is not physical enough to effectively defend LeBron.

If the Bulls could get Jamal Crawford, or a good scoring shooting guard and someone more physical to guard LeBron, they could be in line to win an NBA Championship."

NBA's newest competition: 1 on 1

I’m sure we all know about the NFL lockout and how there may not be football come September. This is due to the fact that players and owners can’t agree to a new collective bargaining agreement (CBA), which expired on March 3.

What you may not know is that the NBA’s current CBA expires June 30. If owners and players can’t come to an agreement, there won’t be basketball in November. If and when the NBA gets an agreement in place, they should create a new All-Star Weekend competition.

They should have a 1-on-1 competition where the best players play against each other. For example, Derrick Rose vs. Dwayne Wade, Carmelo Anthony vs. LeBron James, Amare Stoudemire vs. Chris Bosh, etc.

This would be very interesting and prove who the best player in the NBA really is. As of right now, everybody merely looks at stats, or win-loss records rather than trying top figure out who the best player is.

The only way to truly learn the NBA’s top player is make them play each other, 1 on 1. The player’s might not care who the best player is, but fans definitely want to know. Many people, including myself, would watch this.

Heat are hot, but Nowitzki is on fire

Cheyenne the intern has pretty much conceded the fact that his Bulls will lose to the Miami Heat in the Eastern conference finals. But he's quickly become a fan of a new team:

"Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks look like they’re going to the NBA finals, and as much as I hate to say it, it looks like they will be playing the Heat, and not the Bulls.

Luckily, for all of us who hate the Heat, Dirk Nowitzki is unstoppable right now. Against the Thunder, Dirk is averaging 34 points a game while shooting 51 percent from the field. He has two games with at least 40 points (and in those games, Dirk has shot at least 60 percent).

Everybody is talking about how good the Heat’s defense is, but a great offense is better than a great defense. I’m not saying the Mavericks will win, but Dirk will give LeBron and company a run for their money."
