Real Talk: Weekend Sports Wrap Up

Kobe signed his extension with the Lakers worth reportedly $90 million

It’s been an exciting weekend for anyone who loves sports.  U had Butler and Duke both advance in the NCAA tournament and will go head to head tonight, to see who will be the 2010 NCAA Champs!!! Drop a comment and let us know who will win tonight?

Also, there was a big shake up in the NFL this weekend and future Hall of Famer Donovan McNabb now has a new home, but didn’t go too far.  He’ll stay in the NFC East division but will start the 2010-2011 season as a Washington Redskin.  Redskin fans have to be jumping w/ joy after the moves they’ve pulled off so far.

In NBA news Gilbert Arenas managed to dodge a jail stint for bringing loaded guns into the Washington Wizards locker room.  The judge instead ordered him into a halfway house.  Smarten Up people!!!  But he will go to jail for two days for medical screening & classification.  Also, the department wants him “to see a jail and understand what they have avoided,” according to ESPN .

And as if he already didn’t have enough to smile about, Kobe Bryant signed his extension w/ the Los Angeles Lakers worth reportedly $90 million over 3 yrs.  WOW, gotta love the NBA!!!

Well, Tiger has made headlines again. No, no, no! I’m not talking about new allegations or sex scandals.  He recently released a five paragraph statement claiming his return to the golf course. He will return to the game of golf for the biggest stage…”The Master’s”.  I don’t know about you but I know networks such as ESPN and CBS are jumping up and down like excited children, while thinking of the ratings this guy is about to bring in.  Just think about the reaction from his peers, the news media and the fans.  This will be an event for the ages.

Gilbert…Gilbert…Gilbert.  Just a few years ago, you were the face of your franchise, competing for playoff pushes, and showing fans why you have a chance to gain a scoring title. My, have times changed.  In a recent Esquire Magazine interview Gilbert Arenas revealed that he deserves to be punished for bringing guns to the locker room, and went on to say that he wasn’t using “longevity thinking” when he took out four guns in what he says was an attempt to play a prank on a teammate.  Arenas pleaded guilty to a felony gun charge in January and will be sentenced next week. He has been suspended until the end of the season by the NBA.

OMG…It seems that the athletes these days come straight from the video games these days w/ the dunks and antics they attempt. Check these out and tell me if which dunk was better:

Three-time NBA All-star Gilbert Arenas, known for being a prankster and jokester on and off the court, probably wishes he could take this one back.  He admits that he drew guns in a team locker room as a prank and on yesterday he spent his afternoon  in a voluntary meeting with federal prosecutors at the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Washington and with D.C. metropolitan police about the incident.

Here’s what Areanas had to say on the incident:

“I took the unloaded guns out in a misguided effort to play a joke on a teammate,” Arenas said in a statement released Monday. “Contrary to some press accounts, I never threatened or assaulted anyone with the guns and never pointed them at anyone. Joke or not, I now recognize that what I did was a mistake and was wrong.”

It may be too little, too late for explanations because David Stern will probably be out to make a statement, heard league wide for this stunt.  Look for Arenas, who was already battling back from multiple surgeries to be suspended for a big amount of time and be served a huge fine.  As I always say, life is about choices.  You have to make the right choices and think before you act, especially when you’re getting paid more money than most people will see in a lifetime.  Some think his $100 million contract should be taken away from him?…What do you think?
