NBA playoffs

Despite critics saying the Boston Celtics were too old and injured to win the championship, three wins separate
Boston and the NBA finals. Game one saw the Orlando Magic get embarrassed for the majority of the game, but unlike the Cavaliers, Orlando made decent run in the forth quarter. Still, Boston’s defense put an end to any miracle comeback. Now the Magic must win game two to save themselves the home-court advantage.

LeBron Watch

Since the Boston Celtics pulled off the upset by eliminating King James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, now we wait and wonder which team LeBron will chose. So far teams like the New York Knicks and New Jersey Nets are still in the running for James’ services. But the
Chicago Bulls are quickly becoming a likely destination for the two-time MVP. The Bulls have a lot of advantages such as a strong supporting cast and a reliable franchise player, Derek Rose. No matter what team he goes to, we’ll be sick of hearing his name on SportsCenter by the time this is all over.


Strikeforce Heavy Artillery took place on Saturday night, creating a new contender for the No. 1 heavyweight in the world, Fedor Emelianenko. Strikeforce heavyweight champion
Alistair Overeem destroyed Brett Rogers in the first round, putting himself as the most threating opponent for Fedor. Strikeforce CEO Steve Coker remains optimistic the Fedor/Overeem fight will happen, but both fighters have problematic management, so I’ll believe it when I see it. On the same card Jackson’s MMA fighter Joey Villaseor lost a decision to Jacare Souza. Villaseor’s long layoff before the fight could have been a factor in the loss. Meanwhile Souza will hopefully get a title shot at the Strikeforce middleweight title.
