The “Problem” is Back in Action

Posted by GameSetMatch on February 15th, 2013

Adrien “The Problem” Broner returns to action February 16th in Atlantic City, New Jersey to take on British and European Union lightweight champion Gavin Rees. The will be his first defense of his WBC lightweight title. Adrien Broner comes in as a favorite with 1/33 odds in this title affair. Broner’s record stands at 25-0 (21 KO’s) with five straight knockouts in his last five fights. Coming in as a 1/8 favorite to win by KO, TKO or disqualification only solidifies Broner’s dominance as one of the top lightweights in the world. Adrien has won by knockout in rounds eight, five, four, three and one his last five fights. In this upcoming fight, rounds four, five and eight are at 8/1 for Broner to finish Rees. While round one has bookmakers at 12/1 and round three at 9/1. Some view him as the next Floyd Mayweather Jr. but he still has a lot to prove. When he steps up his quality of opponents and makes it on to the top ten pound for pound list, then people will start considering him a world-class fighter.

Most view this title fight as “The Problem” show. His opponent Gavin Rees is not giving much credit, the bookmakers that have him at a 12/1. With a record of 37-1-1 (18 KO’s) it seems that Rees does not possess the same power as Broner. In Rees’s last five fights he has three knockouts, one unanimous decision and one technical draw. Betting line for Rees to win by knockout is 20/1, decision is 28/1 and draw comes in at 40/1. Rees has a lot of work ahead of him and including a reach and height disadvantage against Broner. The predictability of the title fight is totally unknown which will make it hard for sports bettors to decide on who to place their cash. Nowadays it isn’t actually too hard to do research before placing a bet thanks to the prevalence of the internet within our society. Online bookmakers and casinos alike have really made the most of the internet and particularly smartphones which allow you to place a bet wherever you are. Sites like www.iPhonecasino.ca offer a range of games that is similar to that of any land-based casino and they also offer sports-themed slots games with a fun twist – check out the boxing themed “Foighting Fish” to see what we mean. If you aren’t a fan of the slots then you can have fun playing roulette, poker and many more of these games that are won more by skill than luck. Online casinos create a fun atmosphere where you have the choice of choosing games that favor you and your odds and could sometimes be a safer bet given the unpredictability of boxing. Just take a look at the fight between Mike Tyson and Buster Douglas. As a huge underdog Douglas knocked out favorite Mike Tyson in the 8th round in one of the biggest upsets of all time.

The Reds are the best team in Ohio. That’s a rare statement.

Owens Arrives

Posted by Decker on July 29th, 2010

Getting Terrell Owens will bring the Cincinnati Bengals to new heights. After getting beyond embarrassed by the Jets in the playoffs, the Bengals had to make some moves. For whatever reason, Owens was getting dismissed by most of the league. Yes, he was a problem on the 49ers and Eagles. He started to settle down on the Cowboys, and got unfairly released because Romo and Witten clearly run that offense. And he did fine on the Bills, but had arguably the worst quarterback in the league throwing to him. During that time, he did not vocally complain like he would have in the past.

Everyone dismissed Randy Moss when he was on the Raiders, but then Moss had an amazing season once he left that bad team. Well, the same can happen with Owens. He may not be the Owens of the past, but getting 1,000 yards is not out of the realm of possibility. Hopefully there are enough balls to go around for him and Chad Ocho Cinco. This was a good signing that other teams may end up regretting, especially since it came at a cheap price.

LeBron James Will Stay

Posted by Decker on July 7th, 2010

Cleveland fans, I know you cannot help but be beyond nervous of what is to come. Tomorrow night, LeBron James will officially decide his future. But there should not be too much to worry about, as James will likely stay put.

Nobody, including the Clippers, thinks LeBron will go there. He won’t go to the Bulls because he will always be viewed as just trying to fill the shoes that belonged to Michael Jordan. The Heat would give him a great chance to win, but that is Wade’s team, and LeBron wants his own team. If the Nets were already in Brooklyn, that would have given them a better chance. The Knicks are the most realistic destination if LeBron were to leave, but I believe he questions them from a basketball standpoint.

Ohio has always been home to LeBron. If he leaves, it would be turning his back on his friends, family, and millions of fans. He knows that, and will have that in mind when he announces his decision to remain with the Cavaliers.

Danny Ferry Resigns

Posted by Decker on June 7th, 2010

Last week, Cleveland Cavaliers general manager Danny Ferry resigned as the team’s general manager. Ferry’s contract was up, and the two sides agreed to part ways. Now, Cleveland has no head coach, as well as no general manager. This can certainly be looked at in two ways.

One way could be Danny Ferry getting off of a sinking ship. If he thinks LeBron James is bolting, then it would be best for him to leave now. Because if James leave, Ferry could not be blamed, as he would not be part of the Cavaliers organization anymore.

On the other hand, it could be another attempt by the owner to try and keep LeBron James. By replacing the head coach and general manager, the owner could be attempting to try and do what he think would please LeBron James.

Regardless, this is yet another sharp turn in the LeBron James saga.

Indians Never Learn

Posted by Decker on May 19th, 2010

Rebuilding is essential in sports. Every team does it at one point, and the Indians seem to be doing it right now. But are they really? It seems as if the Indians are a staple for grooming players that go on to have equal or better success elsewhere. Players like Manny Ramirez, Jim Thome, Cliff Lee, and C.C. Sabathia all excel for the Indians. But for most of them, they look for winning success elsewhere. Along with the players listed above, there are laundry lists of stars that have played for the Indians in the past ten years or so.

But now the Indians find themselves in the basement of the MLB. No, they are clearly not the worst team, and should not be considered so. But, they are not exactly in favorable position. The Indians have little to look forward to for the future. And when the exciting future gets here, they will be on their way out before the fans of Cleveland realize it. No wonder why LeBron James wore a Yankees hat to a playoff game in Cleveland.

Lebron James: Will He Stay Or Will He Go?

Posted by homerunheyer on May 17th, 2010

Lebron James and The Cleveland Cavaliers were suprisingly eliminated from the NBA playoffs in the Conference Semi-Finals against the Boston Celtics in six games Thursday May 13.  Many NBA experts believed the Cavaliers were going to make it to the Finals against the Los Angeles Lakers.  They were right about the Lakers so far, they made it to the Conference Finals, but the Cavaliers could not rise to the challenge and were eliminated one round earlier than last season.

Now that the Cavaliers season is over, everyone is wondering where “The King”, Lebron James is going to go.  This is the first time James has been a free agent in his career.  The question is, will James stay with his current team where he would probably make the most money or will he go somewhere else where he has a better chance to win a championship? 

Many NBA experts believe that if James decides to move to another team that it will either be The New York Knicks, New Jersey Nets, Miami Heat, or the Chicago Bulls. 

Reasons to leave for any of the four teams mentioned, Knicks:  James would be more in the spotlight than he already is.  Once someone goes to play for New York their popularity goes through the roof.  James has the chance to be larger than life in New York, but they do not have a championship caliber team even with James.  If the Knicks sign James they will not have that much salaray cap space left to sign any other big name players.  The Knicks can wheel and deal though to build a team around James if they land him.

Nets:  If the Nets land John Wall in the draft lottery along with the Nets new owner Mikhail Prokhorov’s large wealth, the Nets can build a championship team in no time.  The Nets have plenty of room for James along with other big name players.  On top of those factors the Nets are very close to New York and will garner a lot of popularity for James.  There has also been rumors for years that the Nets will be moving to Brooklyn by 2012.  The Nets may be a better choice than the Knicks because of all these reasons.

Heat:  The notion of DeWayne Wade and James on the same team would be spectacular.  There are also rumors that the Heat will land Chris Bosh. With Bosh, James, and Wade the Heat would be unstoppable.  Pat Riley will do all that is possible for this dream to happen.  Another plus on James going to Miami is the location.  James would not get the stardom of being in the New York area but he would get year long warm weather and the beach.  Living in Miami is like being on vacation all the time.

Bulls:  The Bulls are believed to have the best chance at landing James if he decides to leave.  James has a chance to follow in Miachel Jordon’s footsteps by going to Chicago.  There have been rumors that Phil Jackson might go back to Chicago if James lands there.  The Bulls gives James the best oppurtunity to win a championship because they already have two great players on their team with Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah, unlike the three other teams that would have to rebuild around James.  James could bring the Bulls back to their dynasty status of the 1990’s.

Whether James will stay or go, he will be the biggest story throughout the next three to four months in all of sports. (ESPN.com)
