Stephen Espinoza led Showtime Sports to their biggest heights of all-time in 2013 and that momentum hasn’t stop in 2014.
With the biggest name in Boxing Floyd Mayweather waving the Showtime flag, the question begs is Showtime the new face of Boxing?
I had an opportunity to speak to Stephen before the highly anticipated fight between Canelo Alvarez and Alfred Angulo.
Coaching great Phil Jackson has all but ruled out a return to the bench, but has said he wouldn’t mind working in a NBA front office role.
We reported earlier that Jackson declined a coaching position with the Knicks, but now the NY Daily News reports that he has been offered a front office position and is expected to make a decision by next week.

Andrew Wiggins has already made his intent to go to the NBA after one year at Kansas known, so now the question is if fellow freshman phenom Jabari Parker will follow suit.
But if you thought that whether or not Parker will be suiting up in a NBA uniform next year is a no-brainer…not so fast.

Earlier today, we told you there was a former Detroit Lions player that was caught up in a failed murder for hire plot by skin care specialist Dawn DaLuise. It turns out that player is former offensive lineman Chris Geile. Here is a text message obtained by SeattlePi.com
Right now this is looking pretty bad for Geile and for DaLuise. DaLuise is being held on $1 million bail.
It’s a very simple concept.
A group of people are charged with a crime, the prosecution will always go for the biggest fish and try to turn his friends against them regardless if they were the main perpetrator or not.
It happened to Tupac, Michael Vick and many others. So, it isn’t crazy to think even though Darren Sharper and his co-defendant Erik Nunez are charge with the same...

After flirting with the idea of not having an agent and even rumors that he would sign with Jay Z and Roc Nation Sports, Ndamukong Suh has made a decision:

Penny Hardaway hasn’t played a game since 2007, and hadn’t played a meaningful before that since maybe 2001. Still, his collaboration with Nike on the Pennies might be the great run for a sneaker behind MJ’s Jordan’s.
During an interview with Complex the now Memphis area middle school coach revealed that he and Nike are set to release the Penny-6′s.
What’s your relationship...
Earlier in the week we reported that Ronda Rousey went on a radio show and vowed that she could be Floyd Mayweather in an MMA fight.
I wouldn’t even stand up, I wouldn’t even be anywhere near him. I would just do like a little army crawl over there, and he would have to run away. I would just be skittering after him like the one dude inBloodsport that was doing the whole monkey...
The first dominoe of the free agent quarterback carousel has fallen.
Adam Schefter is reporting that Chad Henne has re-upped with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Chandler and Love are buddies, so I don’t think we will see them at Wrestlemania or anything, still pretty funny reply.
Kevin Love, in response to Tyson Chandler's comments about his defense: "F*** him. I don't give a s***."

I don’t think anyone on the Knicks should be criticizing someone’s defense.
Could you imagine being the defensive coordinator that has to gameplan for ‘Megatron,’ and Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins?
The Lions can, and if they have it their way, Watkins will line-up opposite Calvin Johnson.
I don’t know if they can pull it off. But #Lions are showing a TON of interest in Sammy Watkins. They draft No. 10… & have Megatron. #scary

Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes is set to be a free agent next week, and Friday on NFL Network’s “NFL AM” he indicated that “it’s time for a fresh start” for both parties.

The Lakers made the worse kind of history last night as they became the squad to lose by the largest margin in their 142 – 94 beat down at the hands of their in-town rival Clippers. And it’s probably a good thing Bean wasn’t on hand to witness it.
In response to the embarrassment Kobe sent a simple response.

This sounds like something straight out of a movie.

According to Stephen A. Smith, Steve Mills, executive vice president and general manager of the New York Knicks, met about two weeks ago with Phil Jackson about the possibility of becoming the next head coach of the New York Knicks.
The sources told Smith the message the Knicks received from Jackson was that he was not interested in the position at this time.
I bet he wasn’t interested.
