What If Barry Just Opts Out Before 755?

Putting aside all the steroid allegations (and that's all they are in my book: allegations, yunno, innocent until proven guilty and all), with the San Francisco Giants on their way to yet another abysmal season, thus, him having no hope of getting that ever elusive World Series ring anyway, what if Barry got to 754 and just decided to quit? I mean, it's not like he needs to stay in it for the money, he's going to the Hall of Fame anyway and he'll have the single-season record (and many others) for quite awhile. Considering all that Hank Aaron went through getting to 715, to me, the record just belongs to him and for that reason alone, Bonds would be doing the right thing if he decided to just walk away before 755.

On Paper Zach Randolph Is A Great Move . . .

. . . but we all know that the real question is how will it work out on the court? Randolph and Eddie Curry are great offensive players. But will Stephon Marbury be willing to put his huge ego aside to get them the ball enough? And what about Jamal Crawford (who also loves to put it up)? Plus, the Knicks still haven't done anything about their anemic defense. Most of all I give Isiah credit for getting rid of Stevie Francis' huge contract. But, unless it's for Kobe, he better not trade David Lee.

Portland Picks Greg Oden At No. 1

No surprise here. Guess now the only question left is whether or not Oden will be the next Shaq or Kwame Brown.

Kevin Garnett To Phoenix?

Personally, I love the idea of Kevin Garnett going to the Suns, but not for Amare Stoudemire. Garnett deserves a chance at a championship and he'll never get another one in Minnesota, but the Suns need Stoudemire aggressiveness and ability to score in the low post (instead of Amare, Phoenix should be pushing Shawn Marion and the underrated Raja Bell). Besides that I don't see Stoudemire wanting to stay in miserable Atlanta for long despite what Joe Johnson thinks.

Chris Benoit Kills Himself, Family

Damn. When I was a teen still naively convincing myself that professional wrestling was "real", Chris Benoit was one of my favorite wrestlers, underrated at the time and not nearly as popular as he is now, I still his over-the-top skiils warranted a title shot.

One thing for sure tho', if it comes out that this tragedy is related to steroids (or in this case "'roid-rage"), Vince McMahon and the WWE need to be put out of business.

Marion Jones Is Broke

Damn, kind of shocking when you consider all her past endorsement deals. Yet, considering all her problems off the track over the years one can understand.

Sosa Hits 600th, Does Anybody Care?

Sammy Sosa is having a pretty good season as the Rangers DH and it was nice to see him get so excited about hitting his 600th homerun. But his past is just too shady for anyone to seriously consider voting him in the Hall of Fame.

Kobe Owes The Lakers Some Loyalty

Seriously, can Kobe Bryant just keep his mouth shut? He's already won 3 championships and he didn't seem to have a problem staying with the franchise after Shaq left. And with all the money the Lakers are paying him, does he really think that the Lakers are going to to trade him for nothing?

Just Kick Pacman Out Forever

It's become way too obvious that this idiot will never learn, so the NFL needs to do the right thing and just ban him for life.

4 Titles In 9 Years Is Not A Dynasty

Granted, 4 trophies in 9 years serves as an excellent model of consistency and it more than proves that Tim Duncan is the best player in the NBA, but to me a dynasty is at the very least, 3 championships in a row. And no disrespect to the Spurs, but I can still can't get over Robert Horry and David Stern literally booting the Spurs into this years Finals in the first place.

Pacman Jones Finally Does Something Intelligent

Today the idiot decided to drop the appeal of his suspension. Somebody must've talked some common sense into him and this time I guess he listened.

Miguel Cotto Beats Zab Judah

From everything I've read it was a great fight and even Cotto admitted afterwards that "Zab came to win". Fights like theis are what boxing needs as opposed to anything involving the insufferable Shannon Briggs. Of course, everyone including myself, would love to see Cotto versus Mayweather. One can only hope.

Donovan Out? Van Gundy In?

Could be a good move for everybody here. Orlando's going nowhere anytime soon anyway so Donovan can go back to Florida St. and establish the same kind of legacy Coach K has at Duke. And Stan Van Gundy deserves another chance to coach in the NBA, especially after the way Pat Riley dissed him in Miami.

Lebron and the Cavaliers Reach NBA Finals

Frankly, while they did good work against the Pistons, I don't think that the Cavaliers have a chance in hell versus the Spurs. By the way, can Joe Dumars please fire Flip Saunders now and beg Larry Brown to come back?

Alex Rodriguez Is Not A Winner

Normally, I don't agree with anything the self-righteous Mike Lupica has to say, but I have to admit that he hits it on the nail here regarding Alex Rodriguez.
