Sports Notes - RADUCANU in SERENA OUT? - August, 2022
TENNIS' CHANGING OF THE GUARDS - The Williams sisters Venus and Serena have dominated Women's tennis for most of the past quarter of a century. It is believable that what these two have accomplished winning 30 Grand Slam tournaments between them will never be duplicated by another sister team. Their legacy of hard work and determination is what they will leave behind. They have opened the doors for other black female tennis players to strive to for success. They have felt the pain in breaking down the racist barriers that have existed in the sport so others can feel less pressure since they have set the standard of racial tolerance, focus and winning

BACK 2 BACK 2 WAY ALL STAR KEEPS RISING

THE BAY CITY BOYS RULE AGAIN
- For the past two seasons everything that could go wrong did go wrong for the Golden State Warriors. They didn't play the shoulda, coulda, woulda game they simply sucked it up and went to work. They worked hard in healing injuries and their tough play on the court. When their injury nightmare healed they fought their way back to the top of the mountain in winning the 4th NBA title with their core group of Curry, Thompson and Green - NBA's ALL TIME BEST PLAYERS 1st and 2nd TEAMS

Sports Notes - MEDIA HARD ON HARDEN - May, 2022
WATCHA DONE 4 ME LATELY?
- In my January 2021 column titled THE BIG 3 NO HAPPY BROOKLYN NETS I took my swipes at what appeared to me to be a no win situation of 3 superstars James Harden, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving and only one ball. As I noted: Now here's when things get tricky… how long will this last? How long will they all get along when it comes to crunch time and two have to defer to the other to take the last game winning shot? In this situation we are playing ego ball. In Brooklyn the trio only played together in just 16 total games and then... Read on... - NBA'S TOP SELLING JERSEYS - NBA's ALL TIME BEST PLAYERS 1st and 2nd TEAMS

THE SHOULDA WOULDA COULDA BOYS
- PART 2 - The Lakers once a proud group are currently a group of elderly gentlemen in sports athletes speak that were assembled by a group of supposedly the business side of this creation. The group is notoriously known as the 4 PRONG BRAIN TRUST. They consist of the boss Jeanie Buss, General Manager Rob Palinka, former Laker player from the 80's Kurt Rambis and his wife Linda. What in the WORLD are the NBA business credentials for Linda Rambis to be a decision maker for one of the worst teams in the NBA since daddy's little girl Jeanie Buss inherited the team - NBA's ALL TIME BEST PLAYERS 1st and 2nd TEAMS

Sports Notes - The Bashed Brothers - Harden & Westbrook - March, 2022
Trials & Tribulations - When it rains it pours, criticism that is. Since the New Year the media have been picking apart several players. We point out our observation regarding Russell Westbrook, James Harden, Kooper Kupp, Hunter Renfrow and ESPN's Stephen A. Smith having taken center stage in this arena. It seems it's a case of reverse racism in some cases and disrespect while ignoring situations are another. WHAT'S UP WIT DAT? READ ON… - NBA's ALL TIME BEST PLAYERS 1st and 2nd TEAMS

SOME GOOD SOME BAD INCIDENTS - During normal time July is the slowest month for sports journalism. With COVID taking center stager there have been numerous adjustments that changed league schedules, particularly the NBA. Unfortunately Conor McGregor began the month with an unsportsmanlike behavior display.

Sports Notes - ALL TIME IGNORANCE RULES - June, 2021
IT'S A MATTER OF CHOICE! - A man's choice should be given his experience on how to do things and with whom. Cooperation and talent is the key to success. They can either have your back or stab it - LaVar Ball is the king of them all… in talk that is. Since talk is cheap who did he choose for his all-time NBA team? - If ignorance were bliss does that make Los Angeles Lakers owner Jeannie Buss the happiest woman in the world? WHY?

Shohei Ohtani's evolution and adjustment to America's MLB (Major League Baseball) has stimulated thoughts the minds of many that in reality he could be the second coming of Babe Ruth. Ruth began his professional career at 19 years of age Ohtani at 18. Ruth made his major league mark as a pitcher for the Boston Red Sox but turned into a slugger.

Sports Notes - NBA'S SISSY BALL ERA IS BORING - March, 2021
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE GAME OF BASKETBALL?- You can say what you want about the style of game that's played in the NBA today but the question is have you ever seen the game played seriously. Today's NBA players talk too much about going out there and having fun. Back in the day having too much fun and not being serious about playing the game could win you a place on the bench and a good chewing out from the coach. Today's game is too much about entertainment and NOT ABOUT playing the game of basketball as it was created - NBA's ALL TIME BEST PLAYERS TEAM - THIS DAY IN THE NBA

Sports Notes - NFL's TOM BRADY BUNCH - February, 2021
IT TAKES ALL KINDS- The women in Tom Brady's life that potentially helped build the man that he is… a winner.

Sports Notes - THE BIG 3 NO HAPPY BROOKLYN NETS? - January, 2021
WHO LOVES YA BABY? COEXIST OR BUST! - When the Brooklyn Nets acquired James Harden to join Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving the buzz was this is the makings of a SUPER TEAM.

Sports Notes - NFL's LEADING SCORER REVEALED - December, 2020
THE BIG… BANG - It was a shock to me when I saw an Asian man playing in the NFL (National Football League). I later found that there previously were Asians that were in the league but I DID NOT KNOW THAT! The bottom line is in my catching up to speed with the changes in the league I came across an Asian success story that shocked me after doing the research. That person is the leading scorer in the NFL. Who is he? Read on… - NBA's ALL TIME BEST PLAYERS TEAM - THIS DAY IN THE NBA

Sports Notes - MICHAEL JORDAN'S BALLS TO THE WALL - November, 2020
BASKET BALLED - The question is WHY did Michael Jordan green light the drafting on LaMello Ball since he comes with the baggage of his overzealous father LaVar Ball? Can the raging inferno that occurred with the Lakers signing of Lonzo Ball repeat itself and disrupt the chemistry of the Charlotte Hornets organization OR.. PUT A SPARK IN IT? - NBA's ALL TIME BEST PLAYERS TEAM - THIS DAY IN THE NBA

Sports Notes - BAD BOYS of SPORTS TALKING $#!T & WANNA FIGHT! - September, 2020
McGREGOR vs. PACQUIAO FARCE? - As the saying goes talk is cheap BUT some athletes make tons of money by doing just that. The problem is can a trash talking athlete back up what they spew? September has been a month of tough talk and challenges. Included in the mix are Conor McGregor, Manny Pacquiao, Colby Covington, LeBron James and Neon Deion Sanders. Some gave trash talk and and others received. The point is DOES IT SELL?

Sports Notes - ATHLETES FIGHTING RACISM - August, 2020
CAN THEY MAKE A DIFFERENCE? - Since Colin Kaepernik has been largely ignored by his colleagues of his racial inequality protests the recent police murder of George Floyd and the more recent shooting of Jacob Blake, a 29-year-old Black man, in the back has spurned athletes around the world to voice their displeasure. By basically striking, athletes are now being taken seriously as to their we can't take this racial injustice anymore stance. The question is… HOW LONG WILL THIS LAST TO REAP RESULTS?

Sports Notes - NFL's JULIAN EDELMAN - RUNNING FOR ISRAEL? - July, 2020
BLIND MAN'S BLUFF - Is Israel trying to hide their racist tyrannical past behind the Holocaust? - The shit then hit the fan when the NFL's and New England Patriot receiver Julian Edelman became annoyed with fellow NFL player DeSean Jackson's views and invited him to go the Holocaust Museum and educate him on the plight of the Jews. He then offered to join Jackson for a visit to the Black History Museum. The point being WHAT THE F - - K does that have to do with police brutality against African Americans?

Sports Notes - ALL TIME NBA 1st TEAM - BREAKING IT DOWN - June, 2020
AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL... A SHIT HOLE COUNTRY - Our all time NBA 1st team involves the player that rocked the league, Bill Russell who Red Auerbach coached with the Boston Celtics. Russell was acquired in a trade with the then St Louis Hawks (now Atlanta). The Celtics gave up two highly productive white players, Cliff Hagen and Ed MacCauley in the 1956 NBA draft. One has to take into consideration how racist the United States at the time and remains so BUT... Auerbach took a bold chance with the Russell acquisition. Boston fans showed their appreciation by breaking into Russell's home and defecating in his bed.... - THIS DAY IN THE NBA

Sports Notes - NBA COACH JERRY SLOAN REMEMBERED - May, 2020
HE PLAYED & COACHED INTENSELY - Sloan finished his coaching career with 1,221 regular-season victories - Sloan was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2009 after a 26-year head-coaching career including 23 with the Jazz and 3 with the Bulls - As a sports and entertainment journalist you meet all kinds of people and personalities.

Sports Notes - REMEMBERING the NFL's TIMMY BROWN - April, 2020
HE RAN FOR DAYLIGHT - Timmy Brown is the Philadelphia Eagles all-time leader in average yards per touch (6.52), and he still holds the franchise records for kickoff returns (169), kickoff return yards (4,483) and kickoff returns for touchdowns (5).

He was selected for the Pro Bowl in 1962, 1963 and 1965 - NBA's Greatest All-time TEAM

Sports Notes - LAKERS STAR LeBRON JAMES & CHINA'S ZHANG WEILI ROCK HEADLINES - March, 2020
Apparently the Lakers star LeBron James' fame has gone to his head. It appears as if he's often been referred to as King James has infected his brain. It's as if he believes that he is BIGGER THAN THE NBA LEAGUE and HE'S MORE IMPORTANT THAN PUBLIC SAFETY - The Zhang Weili (China), Joanna Jedrzejczyk (Poland) UFC fight is being viewed as being the greatest women's fight of all time but it had it's racist backstory - NBA's Greatest All-time TEAM

Sports Notes - DON NEWCOMBE REMEMBERED - January, 2020
In the age of candy ass athletes and 100 pitch limits for today's Major League pitchers I went into recall mode thinking of when men were men and played their sport with toughness. Currently the new age athlete is spoiled and in many cases overpaid. Thinking of the comparisons of athletes then and now the names of Major League Baseball's Harvey Haddix and Don Newcombe came to mind. Both accomplished feats that will never be surpassed or duplicated… - NBA's Greatest All-time TEAM

The Los Angeles Clippers continue to dominate their highly regarded cross town rival Lakers.

Sports Notes - KWAI LEONARD BLASTS OFF AGAINST LeBRON JAMES & ANTHONY DAVIS LED LAKERS - October, 2019
THE BATTLE OF LOS ANGELES - Housekeeping was in order prompting the exodus of roughly half of the Los Angeles Lakers and Clippers squads. Now there are four super stars in town battling to win the war of Los Angels and strive to win the NBA title. When fans digest the new faces of Kawhi Leonard, Paul George and Anthony Davis to compliment LeBron James, they have a lot of talent on their plates to choose from. With their presence the questions are who can achieve becoming the top team in LA and can one win the NBA title?

Sports Notes - VLADE DIVAC 2 BASKETBALL HALL of FAME WITH A MONKEY ON BACK - September, 2019
THE GO 4 THE JUGGLER MEDIA - When being interviewed by the scribes at the Basketball Hall of Fame event the media's procedure was to offer up a few softball questions and comments to Vlade Divac and then serve up the curve ball question that hit him in the juggler. That curve ball question was…. WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE LAKERS TRADING YOU FOR KOBE BRYANT?

Sports Notes - CLIPPERS GET RIGHTEOUS with KAWHI LEONARD - July, 2019
The PAUL GEORGE DEAL MADE IT HAPPEN & LAKERS DISSED - The burden was heavy for Kawhi Leonard, to remain with the NBA champion Toronto Raptors or go. His options were narrowed down to returning to his home area. His choices were the LA Lakers with super stars LeBron James and Antonio Davis OR... the long time lowly regarded LA Clippers who had NO SUPER STARS but achieved a spectacular 48-34 season. They were the best team in LA this season with a band of gritty role players and young prospects that qualified for the playoffs. Leonard decided to focus on basketball and not play the Hollyweird game with the Lakers

Sports Notes - TORONTO RAPTORS ROCK WARRIORS 4 NBA TITLE - June, 2019
KAWHI LEONARD MVP by LEAVING IT ALL ON THE FLOOR - As valiant as the Warriors were in fighting all out till the end wasn't enough as they lost the battle. It was apparent that their sharpshooter Step Curry was too pooped to pop and could not deliver his usual power punch to hold on to the 85-80 Warriors lead following the injury and departure of Klay Thompson

Sports Notes - ARE THE DURANT LESS WARRIORS MORE INTERESTING? - May, 2019
THE MIGHTY MITE WARRIORS - The debate goes in are the Golden State Warriors a better team without Kevin Durant. When the current squad won their first title without him in 2015 they were the mighty mite splash brothers complimented with Dramond Green. They were the Davids' against Goliaths'. With Durant they became more stationary and boring BUT WINNING. The question comes down to… which style do fans prefer?

Sports Notes - JOHN WOODEN - THE NCAA TOURNAMENT'S LEGEND - March, 2019
JOHN WOODEN - THE PINNACLE OF COACHING - To put into perspective John Wooden's achievement of winning ten NCAA titles there are only two coaches that rank 2nd to Wooden with each having won four titles. They are former Kentucky coach Adolph Rupp and Mike Duke's Krzyzewski. Coaching ten NCAA title winning teams seems unattainable and a record that will never be broken

Sports Notes EXTRA EXTRA - THE LAKERS SHRINKING BALLS - February, 2019
LAKERS SHOULDA, WOULDA, COULDA DISEASE RETURNS - Throwing a group of very talented young players under the bus by offering them in a trade with the New Orleans Pelican for the services of forward/center Anthony Davis may result in being a cancer to team cohesion. With 25 games remaining in the regular season the question is can they make the playoffs OR will they be only the 2nd team in LeBron James' 15 year career NOT TO MAKE THE PLAYOFFS? Is the James BLOOM OFF THE LAKERS ROSE? - THIS DAY IN THE NBA

Sports Notes EXTRA - NBA ALL-STAR GAME HITS - February, 2019
THE CURRY FAMILY STIR THINGS UP - The NBA All-star weekend largely featured the Curry family. A bet between the two Curry brothers Seth and Sep drew a lot of attention. The result was neither won the competition losing to underdog Joe Harris of the Brooklyn Nets. Sep defeated Seth who will feel the financial pain more since Sep makes $35 million a year more than Seth

Sports Notes - THE BURIED COLIN KAEPERNICK STORY - February, 2019
IGNORE IT & IT WILL GO AWAY - By the NFL's actions it is OK to murder someone but unforgivable to protest racism and racial inequality. The Colin Kaepernick anti racism story has been largely ignored by the league and the 70% Zionist controlled main stream media that are apparently focusing on supporting the CIA agendas of creating wars

Sports Notes - MAHOMES IS GOING FOR THE BONES - January, 2019
SUPER TALENT RULES - 23-year-old Patrick Mahomes is the NFL's greatest bargain. The Kansas City Chiefs selected Mahomes in the first round (10th overall) in the 2017 NFL Draft. In ONLY his second season he was named to his first Pro Bowl and was named First-Team All-Pro. Mahomes led the Chiefs to the league's best offense scoring 565 points. The squad also led the league with the greatest points differential with a + 144 advantage. Whatever the results are for the Chiefs and Mahomes in the playoffs should his career continue as it has this season we may be witnessing the NFL's greatest ever quarterback. In summary MAHOMES IS GOING FOR THE BONES

Sports Notes EXTRA - REMEMBERING the NFL's ISIAH ROBERTSON - December, 2018
ONCE MIGHTY… NOW FALLEN - Former Los Angeles Ram and Buffalo Bills linebacker Isiah Robertson died this week in an automobile accident. We knew Robertson during his career with the Rams. We recall how we remembered him and how we feel he was unappreciated for his talents and was largely misunderstood - THIS DAY IN THE NBA

Sports Notes - LAKERS NEW FACES are EMERGING & WINNING AGAIN! - December, 2018
LAKERS ON A ROLL - Naysayers have been demeaning the Los Angels Lakers chemistry this season. They expect more with the addition of superstar LeBron James. James expressed patience to the provbing media by pointing out that it takes time for players to come together as a team and get to know each. James is proving to be more than a leader given the team's recent winning performance supports his wisdom and being a prophet - THIS DAY IN THE NBA

Sports Notes - THE NFL's Christian McCAFFREY's Family - November, 2018
IT'S IN THE BLOOD - As the song goes, 'We Are Family' the Carolina Panthers Christian McCaffrey is following in the family bloodlines of being a sports achiever - McGregor vs. Pacquiao or not"- NBA TRIVIA - NBA's GREATEST PLAYERS - THIS DAY IN THE NBA

Sports Notes - FATHER & SON - October, 2018
THE INFLUENCERS - When a father has played professional sports and has a son that becomes a pro athlete it raises the question how was the son influenced by their parent. There are several cases where this scenario applies but for me there is one that stands out from the past and one that is the current hot topic in sports. Patrick Mahomes is currently setting the National Football League on fire with record breaking stats. From the past the NHL's, Hulls, Bobby and Brett stand out as the best father and son duo from their eras

Sports Notes - SERENA WILLIAMS LOST THE PLOT - September, 2018
SERENA'S BURNS from THEN TILL NOW - the BOILING POINT - Serena Williams' future will be examined for her attack on US Open chair umpire Carlos Ramos. The questions are can she come to terms with her irrational behavior and has the pressure for her effort to tie Margaret Court's 24 Grand Slam titles record too much for her to handle?

Sports Notes - ASIAN GAMES… REFLECTIVE - August, 2018
BRINGING PEOPLE TOGETHER - Over a ten year period of traveling throughout Southeast Asia I never heard of the Asian Games. When I visited Thailand, during that time, I would contact Bangkok columnist Bernard Trink and share my traveling experiences with him. In return he would give me some pointers and asked why don't I cover the games which led me to some of the MOST memorable life experiences by reporting on the ASIAN GAMES

Sports Notes - WORLD CUP THE BEST - RUSSIA WINS OVER VISITORS - July, 2018
THE BEST WORLD CUP EVER? - The irony is 16 members of the French title winning squad have family roots to Africa. One of the sticky points for US president Donald Trump is he has made negative racist comments about the continent.
