Basketball fans have been asking, will the Miami Heat still have a chance in the upcoming finals of the 2014-2015 NBA season?
These speculations were expected to rise up after Miami's former star player LeBron James decided to return to his home team Cleveland Cavaliers during his free agency period. But basketball critics and experts thought so otherwise as they see the new Heat line-up would have more motivation to prove among themselves and the ball fans that they are still a team to reckon with, even without LBJ.
An interview with 28-year-old Mario Chalmers revealed LeBron's exit could mean an opportunity for him and other teammates to "shine." more >>

The NFL and its contrite Commissioner, Roger Goodell, are in full damage control mode for the way they handled the Ray Rice domestic abuse case.
Roger Goodell will survive this scandal. He admitted errors and will hire PR firms, probably one where a U.S. Senator's kids (like him) work, and spend some of the NFL's tax-free money for public service announcements on domestic violence. I presume the league will come out against it.
He has also formed "a committee." We all know how well those work. Perhaps Oscar Pistorius and Ray Lewis will be appointed as co-chairs. Committees buy time, and time is all you need in this ADD news cycle to get past this scandal. more >>
As announced by Lake Show Life, five-year NBA veteran Wayne Ellington from Dallas Mavericks has signed with the LA Lakers for their pre-season roster on Monday.
The 26-year-old shooting guard posted career-highs last season in field-goal percentage (43.7 percent) and three-point shooting (42.4 percent). As cited by BasketballReference.com, Ellington's career average within three feet of the basket is 61 percent.
Playing for the University of North Carolina for three seasons, Ellington has led the Tar Heels to the NCAA national champions in 2009 which consequently earned him the Final Four Most Outstanding Player honors. more >>
Football is a great sport that brings friends and families together and teaches kids discipline and sportsmanship. We put our politics, problems, and pride aside to don face paint and jerseys, and spend four quarters living vicariously through our favorite players. This national obsession has made football the most prosperous sport in the country, raking in nearly 10 billion dollars a year.
It is partly for that reason that the recent NFL scandals have struck a chord among the American people. In some ways, we are part of the NFL family.
Sometimes the endless news cycle makes it seem as though professional athletes are disproportionately engaging in bad, even unlawful, behavior. However, according to a breakdown of USA Today NFL player arrests, that is not the case. Most players in the NFL are very disciplined; they put their bodies through extreme training regimens, are focused and dedicated, and often abstain from substances or practices that may harm their athletic performance. Many make a positive difference through charity work such as "NFL Gives Back." Players like RG3 are great role models for our boys. (Thank you, by the way.) more >>
Roger Goodell, the NFL commissioner, spoke for the first time in over a week about the domestic violence issues in the NFL that have made major headlines recently.
Goodell, 55, admitted that he was wrong when handling the domestic dispute that went public recently when a video surfaced of former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice knocking his now wife unconscious went viral.
"I let myself down. I let everyone down. For that I'm sorry," Goodell admitted during a press conference in New York Friday. more >>
