Earlier this month, USA Today reported that Derrick Rose would not comeback until he felt he was 110 percent ready. Which meant he would be completely fine with missing the rest of the season to recover from the torn ACL he suffered last season, in the first round playoff series against the Philadelphia 76ers, if it is necessary. It has been 9 months since the injury and there haven’t been any major hiccups on his road to recovery. He is already participating in full contact practices and apparently dunking for weeks now. This is the first footage of him actually doing so, of course he is still favoring his good leg, but it’s a step forward. Let’s all hope Derrick Rose a perfect recovery, and that he returns to this form soon. This version of D.Rose is the best. Getting a little bit giddy over here, especially at the thought of the end of those awful Adidas commercials. Take them off the air, please. Article found on: Cosby Sweaters

  • Listening to some of Rose's comments, I just don't think he trusts his knee yet and if he doesn't, I hope he doesn't try and come back until he does.

Keenan Lewis: Saints preparing 'funeral' for Falcons

This Sunday, NFC South rivals New Orleans Saints (6-8) and Atlanta Falcons (5-9) will battle for a potential division title. A game that could eliminate Atlanta from playoff contention with a loss. Saints’ cornerback Keenan Lewis had a rather morbid and blunt take on the upcoming game (via NFL.com). We’re definitely gonna give them their funeral. Even though Lewis seems...

Report: Lakers offered Nash, draft picks for Rondo

It reportedly will take a rather hefty offer to convince the Boston Celtics to part ways with Rajon Rondo. This one probably won’t get the job done. The Los Angeles Lakers have offered the Celtics a package of point guard Steve Nash and “multiple draft picks” in exchange for Rondo, sources told ESPN.com’s Ramona Shelburne on Thursday. Rondo obviously would help the flailing...

Chris Christie defends being a Cowboys fan

Governor Chris Christie was viciously savaged by his New Jersey constituents, among others, for having the audacity to watch the Dallas Cowboys-Philadelphia Eagles game on Sunday night with Jerry Jones. Christie was shown during NBC’s broadcast of “Sunday Night Football” fraternizing with Jones and watching the game from the Cowboys owner’s luxury box at Lincoln...Read More...

Celtics co-owner: 2024 Olympics would be 'boon for Beantown'

Bringing the 2024 Summer Olympics to Boston would be “transformative” and would “set the course for what we want our city and the commonwealth to look like for decades to come,” the co-chair of Boston’s 2024 finance committee writes.   Stephen Pagliuca, better known around Boston as co-owner and managing partner of the Celtics, wrote an article posted on BankerandTradesman...

Harbaugh turned down Michigan money in 2011

Whether Jim Harbaugh is actually interested in the Michigan job or not, it would simply be bad business for him to come out and say he will not be the next head coach of the Wolverines. If nothing else, Harbaugh can use Michigan’s desperation as leverage. There have already been reports that Harbaugh wants to...Read More

Why the Saints pose a legit threat to any playoff team

Does the NFC South deserve to have a team in the playoffs?  I may be in the minority (Brady Quinn agrees with me http://www.footballbyfootball.com/column/nfc-south-is-rising-no-playoff-change-needed), but I believe it does.  Every team sets goals during training camp and one of those goals is to win the division. Therefore, a division title has to mean something.  It means you’ve...

Matt Kemp reportedly has arthritis in both hips

So, that huge Matt Kemp trade between the Dodgers and Padres? Yeah…it might not happen. The typically symbolic physical may actually present a huge problem for the Padres, because it’s revealed that Kemp has arthritis in both of his hips. The holdup in Matt Kemp trade is because the physical revealed arthritis in both hips. The #Padres continue to consult medical experts...

Danny Ainge: Celtics 'having a lot of discussions' about trades

If you expected Danny Ainge to address the Rajon Rondo trade rumors directly in his Thursday radio appearance, well, you should have known better. The Boston Celtics president of basketball operations did not comment on recent reports that the Dallas Mavericks are making a hard push for his star point guard, but he did note that the Celtics — like most NBA teams around this...

Eagles fan posts on Craigslist seeking help for team

It’s certainly not the first time it a disgruntled fan has played the wisenheimer and posted a snarky submission on Craigslist as a means to rip their favorite team, but a Philadelphia Eagles fan’s Craigslist posting seeking a new quarterback and secondary help clearly is one of the better listings of its ilk. The ad,...Read More The post Eagles fan posts ad on Craigslist seeking...

Michael Vick has almost paid off all his massive debt

New York Jets quarterback has almost crawled his way completely out of financial trouble — something that seemed nearly impossible when he filed for bankruptcy in 2008. According to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, Vick is “weeks away” from getting out from under what was once an $18 million debt. At one point, Vick owed $6.5 million...Read More
