For the average sport fan March can be surprisingly overwhelming with breaking news happening in the NBA, NFL and the NCAA Tournament.To keep you updated here are the list of the top sport stories that trended this week.
The NBA sports world had all eyes fixed on Dwight Howard, the #1 overall big man in the league today, seeing if he was going to opt-out of his contract this past thursday with the Orlando Magic and become a free agent. Teams of Howard interest where the L.A Lakers, New Jersey Nets and the New York Knicks.
Howard waited until the last minute of the deadline to say he’ll remain with Orlando and next year 2012-2013 season.Sources reveal that Howard knew his decision months in advance, but loved the media attention surrounding his decision.
The biggest trade came this week as the Golden State Warriors shipped their franchise player, 2-guard Monta Ellis to the Milwaukee Bucks for their Injured franchise center Andrew Bogut. Warrior fans took to twitter and other social media sites to vent their frustration on this abrupt trade of their favorite player.
Side-note: Ellis played against Golden State Friday and torched them scoring 18 points. Brandon Jennings had a double double scoring 13 points. The final score was Milwaukee 120 Golden State 98.
We want Manning..clap..clap...clap,clap,clap!
That cheer is going around to the fans of three NFL teams right now. The Tennessee Titians, Denver Broncos, and creeping up behind the San Francisco 49ers. Not to sound biased, but the 49ers a have a great chance on landing him. Jim Harbaugh coach of the 49ers will ask QB Alex smith to play the back-up QB roll. Since they developed a kinship this past season and with Alex NFL career resume not that impressive to other teams, he will gladly accept the role. San Francisco is already impressively tight locked on Defensive and Offensive and something that the 49ers have always lacked since the Jeff Garcia days was a legitimate QB.
Does your bracket look like this so far....
Somehow The NCAA tournament upsets me with upsets.I never know who's going to win, and by looking at the Stats does not seem to help. It is to be hoped that my Final Four pick comes out true, fingers crossed.
