Is Aaron Rogers Finally Leaving The Packers?

 


Aaron Rodgers walked off Lambeau Field feeling “gutted” after losing the NFC Championship Game for the fourth time in the past seven seasons and wondering about his future with the team.


“A lot of guys’ futures that are uncertain – myself included,” Rodgers said following the Green Bay Packers’ 31-26 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.


Even as he’s likely to receive his third NFL MVP award in 13 days, Rodgers hinted that the unthinkable – he won’t be back for his 17th season with the team and 14th as the team’s starter – isn’t so unthinkable, after all.

Kings Get Another Stanley Cup

The longest postseason for the Los Angeles Kings led into the longest game they had ever played. After 94 minutes of impossibly tense hockey, Alec Martinez could scarcely believe it when a rebound off Henrik Lundqvist’s pads came straight to his stick.

From their first elimination game seven weeks ago to Martinez’s championship-winning goal, these Kings were resilient, relentless and remarkable. Martinez scored 14:43 into the second overtime, and the Kings won the Stanley Cup for the second time in three years with a 3-2 victory over the New York Rangersin Game 5 on Friday night.

Marian Gaborik scored a tying power-play goal in the third period for the Kings, who rallied from yet another deficit before finishing off the Rangers in the finals’ third overtime game at Staples CenterJonathan Quick made 28 saves and Conn Smythe Trophy winner Justin Williams scored an early goal as Los Angeles added a second title to its 2012 championship, the first in the franchise’s 47-year history.

Long an NHL afterthought in their warm-weather city, the Kings have turned into a burgeoning dynasty — and they’ve turned Hollywood into a hockey town with two titles, capped by this glamorous finish. After innumerable chances for both teams in two nail-biting extra periods, Martinez started the final rush with a pass to Kyle Clifford, who dropped it to Tyler Toffoli for a shot. The rebound went straight to Martinez, and the depth defenseman buried it for his fifth goal of the postseason.

The Kings rocketed off the bench and gathered for a huge group hug near the Rangers’ net before the handshake line and the Stanley Cup ceremony featuring captain Dustin Brown’s second chance to take the 35-pound silver trophy from Commissioner Gary Bettman.

Shaquille O’Neal And Allen Iverson Nominated For The Hall of Fame

The larger-than-life 7-foot-1 big man and the ultra-quick 6-0 point guard lead the 10-member Class of 2016, which was announced Monday. Much like during their playing careers, there was no stopping Shaquille O’Neal and Allen Iverson when it came to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

O’Neal won four NBA championships and an MVP award and is in the league’s top 10 in career scoring. Iverson won four scoring titles and was the league’s MVP in 2001, when his 48-point performance for the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 1 of the NBA Finals handed O’Neal’s Los Angeles Lakers their only loss of the most dominant postseason in NBA history.

Iverson and O’Neal will be enshrined along with Michigan State coach Tom Izzo, former Houston Rockets center Yao Ming, former WNBA star Sheryl Swoopes and Chicago Bulls owner Jerry Reinsdorf. Longtime NBA referee Darrell Garretson, coach John McLendon and former stars Zelmo Beaty and Cumberland Posey will be enshrined posthumously.

O’Neal is one of four players to win three Finals MVP awards, joining Michael Jordan (6), Tim Duncan (3) and Magic Johnson (3). He was one vote shy in 1999-2000 of becoming the first unanimous MVP in NBA history as Iverson received the only other first-place vote.

Izzo has reached seven Final Fours and earned 524 career victories since becoming the head coach at Michigan State in 1995. In 2000 he guided the Spartans to the NCAA national championship with an 89-76 win over Florida.

Ming, the No. 1 overall pick by the Rockets in 2002, didn’t have the numbers of some other great centers, but he bridged a path for the NBA to China. The third Chinese player in league history was an eight-time All-Star before injuries shortened his career, as he missed 159 out of a possible 164 games in the last two years in the NBA. Ming was a first-team all-rookie in the 2002-03 season. In his first game against O’Neal, he blocked his first three shot attempts in the first three minutes of the game.

Swoopes was the first player signed by the WNBA. She went on to win three MVP awards and four championships in the league, but it was her 47-point performance in leading Texas Tech to the 1993 NCAA championship that many think of first when talking about one of the greats of women’s basketball.

The Woman Known For Racist Social Media Posts

The hiring of former field organizer Teresa UnRue was officially announced through an email that acting Secretary Phil Rosenfelt dispensed to Education Department employees this week. UnRue was blasted in the media over the summer when a series of offensive Facebook posts were exposed by the media.

Back in June, UnRue shared a post that read "We Need Islam Control, Not Gun Control." Two months later she circulated a meme that poked fun at Mexicans for their accent. They were among several Facebook postings that reflected an insensitivity towards minority voters. Included among them was a viral video of an African-American man eating chicken while mocking his own race for a number of children they have and for still lamenting over slavery. "Had me crack'n up!! Thank you! Please share this with people," UnRue captioned.

The Huffington Post unveiled that it had traced back to discover posts that were hostile towards Barack Obama during his presidency. One such message accused the former President of treason and called him a "terrorist." At the time, the promotion of such propaganda was not uncommon for the Tea Party types who would eventually comprise Trump's base. However, now that he has taken an oath to serve all Americans while occupying the nation's highest office, his continued association with, much less his appointment of such divisive figures to his cabinet, may present a challenge to his reputation going forward.

The memo which names UnRue a new member of the administration does not specify what her job would be in the department.

Patrick Ewing Becomes New Head Coach Of Georgetown University

Georgetown University standout alumni Patrick Ewing is returning to his alma mater as their new head coach. Ewing, who has served as an NBA assistant for 15 years, helped Georgetown win their only national Championship title back in 1984. He will be replacing John Thompson III, who was dismissed two weeks ago.

Ewing sent out a statement following the news, which read, “My four years at Georgetown were the best of my life. Georgetown is my home and it is a great honor for me to return to my alma mater and serve as the next head coach. I have been preparing to be a head coach for many years and can't wait to return to the Hilltop."

Hornets coach Steve Clifford said some kind words about Ewing on Monday (April 3) after working with him for over a decade. He said, “I've had the privilege of working with him for 12 years with three organizations and I know the effort he has put into coaching. He has attacked this profession with the same mentality he had as a player, with hard work, dedication and a passion for the game of basketball. I'm thrilled that all of Patrick's hard work has paid off and he has earned the opportunity to be Georgetown's head coach. We wish him the best of luck in the next chapter of his coaching career."

LeBron James Signs New Deal

According to ESPN reporter Brian Windhorst, LeBron James has signed a 3-year, $100,000,000 contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers. After winning a championship for the team, it seems that Cleveland is making it nearly impossible for LeBron to think about leaving the Cavs.

Despite seeing a small dip with his game earlier in the season, LeBron has remained one of the best players in the league. He averaged 29.7 points during the playoffs and helped the team come back from a 3-1 deficit against the Golden State Warriors during the heated games.

Congrads to +LeBron James and the +Cleveland Cavaliers on the new signing.
