Injuries continue to effect NBA Playoffs

LeBron James tweaked his ankle early in the third quarter of his team’s Game 1 win over the Hawks, after appearing to trip over someone who was situated on the sidelines.

That person was a cameraman, according to James, who said afterward that the person’s foot was out further than it should have been.

It’s inconclusive from the video that was presented, but we’ll go ahead and take LeBron’s word for it.

Either way, player safety should be at the forefront of any decisions made to have cameramen on the sidelines or along the baseline, and we as fans would do just fine without the pictures provided from that angle as long as the game’s best players remained injury-free.

#ATLHawks Demarre Carroll-Is he the key to Atlanta post season success?

5 May NBA: Memphis Grizzlies at Atlanta Hawks


Demarre Carroll has scored 20+ points in 5 straight playoff games. He has started these games with more intensity than any other player. Coach Bud needs to learn from his San Antonio mentor Coach Popovich and turn Carroll loose.

The Hawks trademark crisp passing has gotten bogged down late in these playoff games. Carroll scores most of his points in 1st half with his aggressive play. In the 2nd half he has noticeably less shots, and does not get the touches he had earlier in the game. As he posted on social media ‘I’m mad’ He,and to some degree Mike Scott bring a needed ‘edge to the team’s mannerly demeanor.  Finding shots for Demarre Carroll late in games will be the key to the Hawks winning going forward

Intense #Hawks hold off #Nets 107-97, lead series 3-2

29 Apr Hawks Teague Carroll Horford

The Hawks showed intensity and fire right from the start. Philpps Arena was on full blast for most of the evening to be a formidable 6th man throughout the game. DeMarre Carroll led all scorers with 26. Jeff Teague had 20 points, 8 assists, and Al Horford had 20 points and 15 rebounds.

PBT Extra: Houston, Dallas simply do not like each other

Houston and Dallas both went after Dwight Howard. Chandler Parsons bolted Houston for Dallas, then called downtown Houston dirty. Mark Cuban and Daryl Morey snipe at each other through the media.

This is a rivalry, and it makes for an entertaining 2/7 series between the Rockets and Mavericks. On the court, there are questions about how much Rajon Rondo and James Harden can give. But the secret may be if Dallas can control their defensive boards.

Jenna Corrado and I talk about a Western Conference series that will be more interesting than these seeds normally put together. I’ll take Houston, but it will not be easy.

Timing of Kimbrel trade made it even worse

@Braves trade of #Kimbrel means they are all in for 2017 . No matter what it means for 2015, 2016

Originally posted on Atlanta Braves blog:

 MIAMI – The timing was awful. Period.

And the Braves know that when they traded Craig Kimbrel early Sunday night, on the eve of Opening Day. Bad, bad, bad.

If they could have dumped the albatross contract of Melvin Upton Jr. — or B.J. Upton, since that’s what we knew him as during his two terrible seasons with the Braves – by trading Kimbrel two weeks ago, two months ago, it would’ve been far more preferable and, I’m thinking the Braves almost certainly would have done it.

But when the Braves called around for months and months trying to get some team to bite, there were none willing to take on the more than $46 million that Upton was owed over the next three seasons, under any scenario. Much less a team calling the Braves to discuss…

New law in #Indiana. Is it about #Behavior or #Beliefs ?

2 Apr FINAL FOUR Stadiumm front

There is much ado about Indiana’s new law.

From Yahoo Sports-‘The Religious Freedom Restoration Act protects the rights of individuals and businesses to express strongly held religious beliefs. Critics believe it also provides cover for discrimination against and denial of service to LGBT individuals, among other concerns,.

It has been reported on Yahoo Sports, The Wall Street Journal and news outlets across the US  that UConn coaches will be boycotting game in compliance with CT Gov.Dan Malloy’s order for CT employees not to travel to Indiana. USC’s AD Pat Haden is also not attending.saying on Twitter ‘He is the proud father of a gay son’

I have not read this law in detail yet. But the question that tit raises is how do we balance our beliefs with behavior that is contrary to them? Is GOD right or is man? Click this link to read more http://blogs.wsj.com/dailyfix/2015/04/01/final-four-indiana-law/

15“If you decide that it’s a bad thing to worship God, then choose a god you’d rather serve—and do it today. Choose one of the gods your ancestors worshiped from the country beyond The River, or one of the gods of the Amorites, on whose land you’re now living. As for me and my family, we’ll worship God.” Joshua 24:15

Are You Truly Productive?

This is really on point

imageAre you truly productive? That’s a question you may want to ask yourself with some regularity. We… you, me and everybody else has the uncanny ability to trick ourselves into believing that we are incredibly productive when in fact we’re merely busy.

Busy and productive are two entirely different things!

Busy is about doing stuff. Productive is about doing stuff for a purpose. Busy is about looking like your accomplishing something. Productive is about actually accomplishing it. Busy is about wondering what happened to the hours in your day. Productive is about knowing exactly how you used your time.

Busy people hope for a productive day. Productive people plan a productive day.

Their plan is based on their goals and objectives. They determine what they will do and when they will do it based on priorities that come straight out of their goals. They strive to be doing the most…

@SEC @ESPN Are you ready for some football? #Springpractice #CollegeFootball

ESPN announced the 2015 SEC spring game schedule on Thursday. You are aware of the business relationship between the SEC and ESPN, aren’t you? Anyway, all 11 remainingSEC spring games (Kentucky and Texas A&M will not hold spring games, Vanderbilt’s was on Saturday) will be shown on SEC Network properties but, interestingly enough, none of them will actually be on SEC Network properties.

Instead, SEC Network+ – the digital home of SECN, basically the network’s version of ESPN3 – will show most games while SEC Network Alternate – the network’s overflow channel – will provide whip around coverage. All games will be shown on replay on SEC Network throughout the following week.

Here’s the schedule:

April 11
SEC Spring Whip Around (noon-4 p.m. ET) – SEC Network Alternate
South Carolina (noon ET) – SEC Network+

Ole Miss (1 p.m. ET) – SEC…
