Chris Bosh is apparently suffering more from the fact that he can't play for the Miami Heat in the second round of the playoffs than the recurrence of a blood clot. Several reports in the past couple of days revealed that the forward and his team are in odds about him wanting to play in the series against the Toronto Raptors, and things may get ugly with rumors that he now is pressuring the team to let him play.
After doctors found out that he had a blood clot issue, he no longer was allowed by Miami to play, and he hasn't been on the court since the All-Star break. Before the playoffs started he made an official statement saying that he is positive about his chances of returning to action. Per Sports Illustrated, he even showed his fans and followers in social media by way of posting workout videos that he's doing well and is perfectly healthy. But everyone from the organization seems to have their mouths shut.
The recurring blood clot he is suffering from currently is different to that of what sidelined him last season but it does not mean they're not related or connected. And by the looks of it, the two parties involved – Bosh and the Heat – are nowhere close to making an agreement it seems. The veteran forward is an epitome of optimism even joining the team in their trips, but the Heat organization in general does not seem to care if he isn't playing for them in the playoffs. more >>

Jon "Bones" Jones uses his arms and legs to defeat opponents in the UFC, but the mixed martial arts fighter is leaning on the power of prayer to help his mother battle diabetes.
On April 23 Jones, 28, bested Ovince Saint Preux for the interim light-heavyweight title, but many questioned why he wasn't fighting in the dominating way he had in the past. For Jones, the answer was more than being rusty after missing over a year in the cage due to a suspension following his arrest.
"In my last fight, you know, I had a lot of stuff stacked up against me. A lot of you guys don't really realize what's been going on in my personal life," Jones said during a press conference for UFC 200 last week, according to MMA Junkie. "My mom is in a real bad position. She's really losing a fight to diabetes right now." more >>

Recent comments from the Rev. Franklin Graham might make this year's No. 13 NFL draft pick Laremy Tunsil the poster child for how personal activities can negatively impact one's professional life.
Graham blasted Tunsil on Facebook last week regarding the football player's recently resurfaced bong-smoking video, asking, "How much does it cost to act stupid? It could cost you millions — just ask Laremy Tunsil."
Tunsil, who was once considered the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft, tumbled down the draft list last Thursday after a video of the former Ole Miss left tackle wearing a gas mask and smoking a bong was posted to his Twitter account the day of the draft. Tunsil said his account had been hacked. more >>
