Bulls SG BUTLER to get 5-yrs $90 million from J.R. and Company!..."WEST SIDE Story Report" as the "SEE RED Butler" gets caught selling "WOLF TICKETS" as he was going nowhere once GAR and PAX gave him all those DEAD PRESIDENTS and unlimited EATS and SLEEPS and WHIPS! @JimmyButler #BullsNation #SeeRedBUTLER #WestSideStoryReport

Just in as Jimmy Butler has confirmed through reports that he is staying 60 more months with the Chicago Bulls and has cancelled all other meetings with other teams namely the Lakers. That news hot off the press as the "See Red Butler" will get right at $90 million over five years!

Butler was heavily coveted as the Los Angels Lakers were the real threat but Butler didn't own his rights the Bulls did. A Restricted Free Agent Butler was the Bulls leading scorer at 20 ppg in 65 games adding 5.8 boards and 3.3 helpers.

"Jimmy G. Buckets" , the name given to Butler by Bulls T.V. Color Man and former Player Stacey King, went to his first All-Star Game in 2014-15 and was 2nd team All-Defense as well. Now with new lead man Fred Hoiberg in the mix and a new style both John Paxson (VP of OPS) and Gar Forman (GM) had an easy sale to Jimmy and he knew all along he wasn't going anywhere selling "Wolf Tickets". You know running your mouth doing absolutely nothing which was a good thing for Bulls Nation and Butler's Back court mate D-Rose.

Now the "Butler" did it can the Bulls get a 3rd Scoring Guard in the Fold and I was hoping they would grab PG Tyus Jones as I question the motor on Mr. Bobby Portis...stay tuned!


With Butler going to sign with Bulls that leaves Wade County, "Mississippi Lightning" Monta Ellis, Wes Matthews, and Khris Middleton as the next four up maybe in that order of business talking NBA Free Agent Shooting Guards!    


 
   

The Indian Head's SAAD sent to BLUE JACKETS Nation in a 7-Player Deal!..."FROZEN TALK" 1901 West Madison as GM BOWMAN lets another young STAR walk! @BSaad20 #HawksNation #TeamSAAD #OneTrade

Maybe the Chicago Blackhawks need to stop winning Cups so they can keep some of their young Stars. After Hawks GM Stan Bowman had reiterated throughout the 2014-15 season that Restricted Free Agent RW Brandon Saad was a high priority Saad gets put in a 7-player deal with the Columbus Blue Jackets just like that!

I know both Captain Serious #19 and the "Bison City Blur" #88 have those huge deals (both netting $84 million for the next 8 years) but letting go of Saad might be costly and don't tell me "Its the next man up" don't want to hear that Pool Hall Talk!

Saad expiring deal of $2.75 million over 3 years wasn't nearly enough moving forward as he will command you would think from the Jackets a salary of at least $6-$8 million per. That has to be out of the Hawks Range as they were looking around for Duffel Bags they know they do not have.

The Deal sends Saad, RW Alex Broadhurst and Defenseman Michael Paliotta to Columbus as the Indian Head receives Wingers Artem Anisimov, Marko Dano, Jeremy Morin, Corey Tropp, and a 2016 4th round pick. I have no idea who those gentleman are the Indian Head will get but someone needs to tell them about that Indian Head Sweater...It's not making the Playoffs that is the goal it's all about the Lord Stanley Cup and nothing else!

Note: D Nick Leddy was another one that got away but there was no way the Hawks could have gave him what the Isles just gave him this past season...

We will miss you 'Burgh Native @BSaad20 and best wishes in Columbus...the Video!


     

the BROW and State BIRD of LOUISIANA going for MAX Wells Fargo Wagons!..."SQUEEZE the ORANGE" talking NBA Free Agency 2k15 as Anthony Davis is rumored to be getting close to a $140 plus million deal over 60 Months! @AntDavis23 #BROWDuffelBagBusiness2K15 #StateBIRDOfLouisiana #PelicansNest504 #TeamGentry #BBN #UK @NikeBasketball

Here we go as NBA Free Agency starts at 11pm CT Tonight June 30 and who will be standing at your door. L-Train is rumored to get the Spurs "Pops", R.C., and "Dunc" at his front door at 10:59pm CT tonight in Newport Beach, California. King James is going nowhere but answering the phone but you know he needs to be pampered so expect the Cavs to get to his house with an assortment of front office folks including a "Mani Pedi"!

Then there is the "Brow" the #1 Player on the Board in need of a new contract and the only other than King James who can impact a game from the Charter to the concourse to the hardwood...yes that good! What will the "Brow command as that NBA Salary Cap will be moving from just under $70 million to a robust $87 plus million in the 2016-17 season and lookout!

State Bird of Louisiana is rumored to have a "Brow" P.O. (Purchase Order) in excess of $140 million over 60 months and that is getting everything in NOLA but an unlimited supply of Mother's Honey Baked Ham, keeping Bourbon Street's namesake instead of "Brow" Boulevard, and the Superdome and that is getting "Paid in Full"!

What does the "Brow" dba @AntDavis23 in the Twittisphere and Government name Anthony Davis bring to the table taking a look at the 2014-15 season:

ROYALS @ ASTROS going Three-Piece Junior Circuit Thriller in the 64oz MINUTE MAID Drink!..."A CUP of JOE in the SHOW Report" talking AL Central and AL West Leaders of the Pack! #KCvsHOU #BeRoyalKC #StrosShow #ALLeaders2K15

We all knew the Kansas City Royals would be right in the thick of everything as far as leading the AL Central and among the best teams in the show. What no one anticipated not even the Houston Astros (if they told you before the 2K15 season they would be a contender for the AL West that cannot be further from the truth) is their rise to the Top of the AL West as most expected at best it would be the 2016 season they would make a serious run.

Now we get Royals and Astros at Minute Maid Park for a three-piece with some All-Star Players all over the diamond. K.C. comes in at 44-28 and the Astros 44-34. Can Houston handle the new Royals as K.C. is built for another deep run in October?

Volquez will go Game #3 and has been solid for K.C. all season long. 'Stros Star Dallas Keuchel will get the nod on Tuesday for Hosuton.

The Royals have not been hitting the "Long Ball" but they do have "All Hands on Deck". The 'Stros have been all or nothing as they are among the league leaders in Bombs as a team! 'Stros hot shot rook Carlos Correa (video below) is all of that at 6-4 and just north of 210 el bees as he looks and plays the part!




CUBS 1 CARDINALS 4 F...Where do you start talking about the NORTH SIDERS as the CUBBIES go "WINLESS" in Baseball Town USA as MATHENY Ball keeps rolling!..."GET AWAY DAY" + "WEEKEND BENDERS" as MADDON Ball hits a "Thud" near the Gateway to the West! #CHCvsSTL #Cubbies #RedJune #NLCentralBusiness

Excuses are "Tools for the Incompetent" as Rain Delays are a part of the Show especially this season and in the month of June. Having said that explain the St. Louis Cardinals 2015 W-L a robust 51-24 as they hammer the North Siders in the three-piece leaving the Chicago's Senior Circuit Outfit plenty to think about the rest of the way.

It was Redbirds starter Carlos Martinez (9-3) doing the honors tonight going six and allowing one run on a sac-fly off the Ash, Maple, or Bamboo of Cubbies Star first baseman Anthony Rizzo. That Redbirds Offense doubled the Cubbies to death as an RBI single in the 2nd by Xavier Scruggs gave St. Louis a 1-0 lead after two.

Then it was 1-1 in the 4th when both Jason Heyward and Yadier Molina doubled off Cubbies starter Jason Hammel scoring two runs and a 3-1 Cards lead. Hammel (5-3) who has been the Cubbies most consistent starter to date was roughed up through four plus giving up four runs on six hits.

A Matt Carpenter two-bagger in the 5th on Cubbies middle man James Russell capped the scoring at 4-1 as the Redbirds outscores Chicago 15-4 in the three-piece. What's even more remarkable there are some big names on that Cards DL starting with RHP and Ace Adam "Waino" Wainright who is out for the remainder for the 2015 season. I know it's not "Whitey Ball" but "Matheny Ball" is super-delicious right now in the show!

Cubs fall to 39-35 and with plenty of time remaining its safe to say they are playing for an NL Wild Card Slot unless the San Andrea Fault takes out St. Louis and new Busch!

Redbirds Captain Save-A-Game Trevor Rosenthal was absolutely filthy in the 9th grabbing his 23rd save of 2015...throwing upwards of 98 mph and has the nerve to throw an 88 mph change...silly!

BRAVES 2 PIRATES 1 F...BRAVES Country avoids the "SWEEP" at the Hands of the BUCCOS at PNC!..."GET AWAY DAY" as former #BUCN Captain Save-A-Game GRILLI gets Save #21 but not without unexpected Turbulence! #ATLvsPIT #BravesCountry #BUCN #NL2K15Business

The Atlanta Braves needed a good outing from starter Alex Wood and gets it. They also needed someone at the dish to put in work in order for the Chop Shop to avoid the sweep and they did that also!

Enter the Southpaw Wood going 7.1 frames scattering five hits and allowing not a single run as he sent 8 Pirate Hitters back to their Pitching Coach for the plan of action at the next AB. A Nick Markakis RBI single in the 5th broke open a scoreless affair as Pirates starter Jeff Locke was on his A-Game as well.

Then in the 7th in a 1-0 Braves lead with Vance Worley on the "Bump" for Locke it was Jace Peterson taking him deeeeep for a solo blast making it 2-0 Chop Shop! Former Buccos Captain Save-A-Game Jason Grilli then came in the game in the 9th only to give up a run and make things interesting on a Jordy Mercer double! He then gets Gregory Polanco swinging for the 3rd and final out.

Braves leave the 'Burgh at 36-40 as they are in the NL East race. The Buccos fall to 42-33 as they try and run down the NL Central leading Red Birds on a 105-57 pace...yes they are that darn good in the 'Lou!        

DODGERS 2 MARLINS 0 F...Then "GREINKE-ster" says enough is enough as DODGER Blue stars in "Escape from Little HAVANA with the Rubber Game"!..."GET AWAY Day" as L.A.D. restores order after KERSHAW's 3rd consecutive "L" on Saturday! #LADvsMIA #DodgerNation #FightinFish305 #SeniorCircuitHappenings2K15

The L.A. Dodgers just one day after Ace Clayton Kershaw suffered his 3rd consecutive "L" for the first time in his career grabs the "Rubber Game" on "Get Away Day". Dodgers starter Zack Greinke didn't get much run support but he just needed one run as he goes 7.2 IP of four-hit hardball striking out six.

The Dodgers top of the order came through as Howie Kendrick and "A-Gon" Adrian Gonzalez carried LAD at the dish with an RBI each. They combined to hit 5 for 9 and scoring a run along with this two ribbies.

The Fighting Fish 305 Jose Urena pitched well (5 IP 4 H R ER 4 BB 4 SO) but he needed to throw a shutout to keep up with the "Greinke-ster"! Dodger Nations Captain Save-A-Game Kenley Jansen gets his 11th save of the 2015 season as LAD moves to 43-34. The Marlins will have to manufacture some runs as they fall to 31-46 with @Giancarlo818 on the DL for an extended period of time!  

NBA Draft 2008 a Look Back in "SQUEEZE the ORANGE" NBA Draft Replays!...D-ROSE went #1 and there were HITS and MISSES in this one talking Lottery 2008! #NBADraft2008 #LogoWatch #LogoWatchFusions #MonstersInside94x50

If hindsight was 50-50 as Panthers QB Cam Newton would say the 2008 NBA Draft might have been a shade or two different. The Bulls were picking #1 and that picked Hometown Hero Derrick Rose and he along with King James, Kevin Durant, and Steph Curry have been the only NBA Players to grab the "Fight for Mo" dba NBA M.V.P..

Looking at the 2008 NBA Draft Closer let's look at the Lottery and the 1st Round and see who is still getting it done:

2008 Lottery in Order:

1. #Bulls D-Rose
2. #Heat Michael Beasley
3. #TWolves O.J. Mayo (Traded to Memphis)
4. #SuperSonics Russell Westbrook (OKC Thunder)
5. #GritGrind Kevin Love (Traded to Minnesota)
6. #KnicksNation Danillo Gallinari
7. #Clips Eric Gordon
8. #FearTheDeer Joe Alexander
9. #Bobcats D.J. Augustin
10. #Nets Brooks Lopez
11. #PacerNation Jerryd Bayless
12. #ForeverPurple Jason Thompson
13. #Blazers Brandon Rush
14. #Dubs Anthony Randolph


360 Degrees....just looking at the Top 14

Rose was the true #1 Overall...

Beasley, Joe Alexander, Anthony Randolph, and Brandon Rush are El Busto...even though B-Easy just got waived Today by Heat as we go to press and Rush won a Chip with "Dubs" this past season!

Westbrook and Love are All-Stars...The Grizzlies would like to have Love back of course!

Gallanari looked to be a solid pick and the injuries but a key piece in the 'Melo Trade to NYC...

Gordon injury prone and below expectations...

Augustin, Bayless, Mayo, and Thompson have been steady NBA Players...ironically enough both Mayo and Bayless leads that Bucks 2nd Unit...

Impact Players in the 2008 1st Round Post-Lottery:

15. #Suns Robin Lopez now with Rip City and steady...
16. #Sixers Mo Speights now with Dubs and solid...
17. #WeTheNorth Roy Hibbert now with Pacers inconsistent...
19. #Cavs JJ Hickson now with #Nugs has been a solid NBA Player from Day 1...
21. #Nets Ryan Anderson stretch 4 before there was such a thing..

22 #Magic Courtney Lee now with Grizz as Rookie Season stared on a Magic Team that went to the 2009 NBA Finals...

23. #Jazz Kosta Koufos now with Grizz a Fixture on Grizz 2nd Unit...
24. #SuperSonics Serge Ibaka a Foundation Piece for OKC with KD and Russ and Harden
25. #Rockets Nicolas Batum now with Hornets a solid player

Notable 2nd Round Picks...

#31 Nikola Pekovic #Twolves
#34 Mario Chalmers #Heat
#35 DeAndre Jordan #Clips
#36 #Blazers Omer Asik
#45 Goran Dragic #Spurs


Is JOSH JACKSON #1 in Class of 2016 as "SCHOLASTIC DAYZ" goes from Southfield, MI to Napa, CA to Team USA Basketball U19 tracking down maybe the #1 STUNNA in Class of 2016 they say...@J_Josh11 dba JOSH JACKSON! #JJBusiness2K15 #ProlificPrep #1NationAAU #SouthfieldMI #NapaCA

The Class of 2016 #1 High School Boys Basketball Player will come down to Harry Giles, Jayson Tatum, and the Josh Jackson who by many analyst is holding #1 for now. At 6-7 and just south of 190 el bees Jackson can do it all and everyone lined up for his services.

A Southfield, Michigan Native has moved onto to near Napa, California or his Senior Season coming up and will be playing Prolific Academy in Windsor, California who is sponsored by Three Stripes dba Adidas.

@J_Josh11 plays for 1 Nation AAU Squad and now playing his senior season out West might move him to play his collegiate hoop out there as Michigan is home and "Izzone" and the Maize and Blue for sure have put on a full court press for his services.

Jackson put on a show yesterday playing for Team USA U19 going double-double with 20 points and ten boards beating Iran 83-53 in Crete, Greece. Now comes the question will he join Josh Langford (Madison Academy Madison, AL signed with Izzone and Top 20 Recruit Class of 2016) who will play the SG next season in "Izzone" as Jackson if "Izzone" can get him can play the SF.

BRAVES 4 PIRATES 8 F...MORTON gets a Crooked 5 in Frame One as the BUCCOS get to ten games over the .500 mark!..."WEEKEND BENDERS" as we "RAISE the JOLLY Roger" as the CHOP SHOP cannot get to .500! #ATLvsPIT #BravesCountry #Buccos #SeniorCircuitBusiness2K15

Buccos starter Charlie Morton moves to 6-1 after that Pirates line up spots him a crooked five in the first inning. That five-run first frame was highlighted by an RBI two-bagger by "El Toro" Pedro Alvarez and RBI singles by Francisco Cervelli and Jordy Mercer.

Braves starter Julio Teheran (5-4) settled down after the first and went six allowing six runs in total on nine hits. The Chop Shop down 6-1 heading into the 7th put up a crooked three  as Jace Peterson goes for a RBI double clearing the bags as the sacks were packed making it 6-4. The Buccos came right back in their half of the 7th scoring two on RBI singles and a double!  

"El Toro", Cervelli, and Mercer each had two RBI. The Braves were led by Peterson's three RBI as the Pirates move to ten over at 42-32 in the NL Central chasing the Redbirds. The Braves fall to 35-40 in the NL East with Nats holding that #1 slot!

RANGERS 4 BLUE JAYS 0 F...Texas Hardball pulls out their Lamborghini GALLARDO as he blanks the 'JAYS going eight strong!..."WEEKEND BENDERS" slide over 'STROS Show 2K15 as the RANGERS are in the mix in the AL West! #TEXvsTOR #RangersHardball #BlueBirds #ALSummerBusiness2K15

The Texas Rangers around the time they picked back up Mr. Hamilton they took off. Now as we go to press the Rangers are right in the mix on the Junior Circuit in the AL West. After getting blitzed at Skydome on Friday 12-2 the Rangers puled their 2K15 Lamborghini Gallardo out the garage and did work on the 'Jays!

That's right former "Piwowarzy" Star RHP Yovani Gallardo dba Lamborghini Gallardo at Bluedude Sportstalk throws a gem as Texas Hardball needed all of that effort. Lambo Gallargo goes 8.1 frames throwing a three-hitter walking two and striking out four for his seventh "W" against six L's.

Texas scored a run in the 2nd, 4th, 5th, and 7th as the ladder three wee via "Chicks dig the Long Ball"!  Mitch Moreland, Robbie Chirinos, and Rougned Odor each go Solo Blast all off 'Jays Starter Matt Boyd. Boyd takes the loss his first of 2015 after going 6.2 IP allowing four runs on nine hits with three of those nine going for souvenirs.

Texas moves back over the .500 mark at 38-37. The Blue Birds fall to 40-36 in a tight race in the AL East just two back of the East leading Bronx Bombers!      

TALBOT off to Oilers and RAANTA to the Blue Shirts!..."MAKING NOISE" in Ice Games as two back up Blue-Paint Tenants head to new places! #FalmesOnIce #BlueShirts #FearTheINDIANHead

The Edmonton Oilers are tired up being the butt of every ones jokes around Ice Games. They had #1 overall and grabbed "Sid the Kid" Crosby comparable in five-star Center Connor McDavid and now they make a another solid move in the Blue-Paint.

Oilers get goalie Cam Talbot from the N.Y. Rangers and a 7th round pick for as the Blue Shirts pick up picks 57, 79, and 184. In Turn the Chicago Blakchawks send back up goalie Antti Raanta to the Blue Shirts in exchange for Forward prospect Ryan Haggerty.

Talbot was excellent in the crease in King Henrik's Absence now we get to see if that same play can translate to the Oilers as their #1 face in the blue-paint! Remember the Oilers move into that swank Rogers Place in the 2016-17 and the Rogers Place will not be taking a loser by any means necessary.

As for the Rangers they get a quality back up in Finland's Raanta as he was the odd man out in Chicago with Scott Darling playing extremely well in the blue-paint behind Corey Crawford. The Hawks were not going to keep three Goalies and Raanta became expendable as that just professional sports business! Hawks GM Stan Bowman is one of the best and in Hawks Nation we trust Bowman and Company and his pedigree and those three Cups as you play for nothing else!  

STANTON out 4-6 Weeks for Little HAVANA Hardball and there goes the Neighborhood!..."WORD around the WARNING Track" GIANCARLO and MARLINS get a huge blow as does the SHOW moving forward! @Giancarlo818 #LittleHavanaHardball #FightingFish305

The Miami Marlins take a huge hit as does the the Show moving forward and Marlins Star OF Giancarlo Stanton's latest injury had nothing to do with the opponent the L.A. Dodgers. Stanton will miss some 4 to 6 weeks due to a fractured hand he suffered last night on a swing versus the Dodgers. What does all this mean regarding MLB's newest "Chicks dig the Long Ball" Star?

One the Marlins everyday line up loses that one presence that all pitchers feared with ducks on or of the pond with Stanton at the dish. Secondly those Show leading 27 bombs and 67 ribbies are nowhere near that Marlins Clubhouse with him out. Then there is Stanton's impact on the Marlins Payroll and his Motel Show at the gate as everyone wants to see the Fighting Fish 305 but not the Marlins and that is not taking shots they just need to hit the winner's circle more often.

Moving even further along that Century 21 HR Derby at the Great American Ballpark hosted by the Red Stocking in July will be entertaining but not as entertaining with Stanton out. In a nutshell this whole thing stinks to high heaven on all fronts and get well @Giancarlo818 so "Chicks can dig the Long Ball" and the Bluedude get sale some Giancarlo Stanton McFarlane Sportspicks at my EBAY harr.a9...

BLACKHAWKS 2015 Draft as they have no 1st Round Pick!..."FROZEN TALK" 1901 West Madison as the INDIAN Head has the CUP and who needs a Donut-Runner or three? #FearTheINDIANHead #OneGoal #LordStanleyIsWithTheBlackhawks #IndianHeadDraft2K15

Oh settle down as we just got our mitts on Lord Stanley's Cup and Stan Bowman and the boys are in Sunrise, Florida for the 2015 NHL Amateur Draft. The Hawks the model NHL Franchise with three Cups ('10, '13, '15) in three of the last six seasons will have no 1st round picks but their draft starts in the 2nd.

Watch Hawks GM Closely Stan Bowman as he will still be working to find a youngster and a "Madhouse on Madison" Donut-Runner under the goal crease! Let's take a look at the Indian Head's 2015 Draft Selections with hardly any extra duffel bags to let go!

#FearTheINDIANHead 2015 Draft Picks

Note: No 1st Round Pick in 2015

2nd Rd 24th Pick (54th overall)

Who is CONNOR McDAVID?..."WORD around the BOARDS" as we get the next "SID the KID" or how about the one and only CONNOR McDAVID of the Erie Otters of the Ontario Hockey League dba OHL! @cmcDavid97 @

At 6-1 and just under 190 el bees at the ripe age of 18 Center Connor McDavid is about to take the world by storm. Those in the know though will tell you he is already taking the Hockey World by storm. It's about every ten years in every sport you get a "Can't Miss" Prospect and here he is as "Sid the Kid" Crosby Comparisons might be selling this kid shirt!

@cmcDavid97 lit up the OHL (Ontario Hockey League) for three straight seasons amassing numbers that were astronomical to say the least. Look at these Totals playing for the Erie Otters:

A new solid Cubs Squad for three near he Gateway Arch vs the Redbirds with Game # going ESPN Sunday Night Hardball...nothing better Cubs and Cards Nation! .  

Thunder's @kdTREY5 lands in EAST BAY for Kids Camp!..."REGULATORS Report" O.K.C. as K.D. at the "DRAGON DOME" hanging out with B-SHAW at Oakland, CA High School BB Powerhouse BISHOP O'DOWD! @kdTREY5 @NikeBasketball #DragonsHoops

Kevin Durant was at Oakland, California High School Basketball Powerhouse Bishop O'Dowd H.S on June 24 hanging out with the Kids at a Basketball Camp. The former NBA M.V.P. also talked to the Kids about Education, staying in school, and of course following your dreams.

O'Dowd won the California State Championship again in 2014-15 as they were led by Every body's All-American Ivan Raab (Cal Bears Recruit) as the Dragons beat L.A. Area Powerhouse Mater Dei of Santa Ana, California and Michael Cage Jr. for the Chip.

Here some pics from the Dragondome of @NikeBasketball @kdTREY 5 at the Camp:

NBA DRAFT 2015...the "AFTERMATH" Part 2 the LOSERS in "SQUEEZE the ORANGE" as the ZEN MASTER is making it clear he wants to head back to the LEFT Coast! #NBADraft #LogoWatch #LogoWatchFusions #MonstersInside94x50

Before we get into who failed the 2015 Draft Exam we need to ask ourselves as NBA Heads or Bluedude Heads or just Sports Junkies getting their "Fix" on anything Sports. What were the New York Knicks thinking as I saw trouble with that Photo of Steve Mills (Knicks VP and should be nowhere near any draft room NFL Fantasy included) near Phil Jackson and Derek Fisher thinking he is in the Bermuda Triangle forget running the Triangle!

I know what your thinking Bluedude there are 30 more teams to talk about and I get that. As the Big Apple is the #1 Sports Market and you get that as there is always two sides to a story as Aaron Hernandez has a side to his story with Bodies all over him!

As far as the Losers in the 2015 NBA Draft its from my perspective and you can comment or take jabs in Twitter Alley but be careful as the Basketball Gods will strike you...Lol!

the
"AFTERMATH
of
NBA Draft 2K15 Part 2
Top 5 Losers

Note: I get Teams stashing Euro Talent to put their Cap Money in free agency but getting Boo Boo the Fool from over the pond with capable bodies on the Draft Board is getting out of hand! 

LOOOOOOSERS! 

#KnicksTape soon to #KnicksVHS going Zenith Chroma Color Floor Model:

I can see World's Most Famous now with 'Melo joining the chant...Kriiiiiiiiistaps...Kriiiiiiiistaps...Kriiiiiiiiistaps is Andrea Bargnani that's who he is. Look word around the water cooler is Dude didn't even finish his Knicks Workout...yes failed at Pull Ups, Jumping Jacks, and Sit Ups! They mad somewhat of amends grabbing Jerian Grant from Washington as he had to be thrilled as he was going home like Tyus Jones and was snatched up in a N.Y. Minute!

#WizKidsDC 

Kelly Oubre Jr. the loudest one in the room with those spiked Scooby Doos are you kidding me., Not only does he look like current Kings SG Ben Mac Attack McLemore but he hails from Rock Chalk Jayhawk. Now that's not taking shots but do you really think a player who is David Copperfield one minute and 13 and 4 the next will show in the 'Logo"...absolutely a 10 lb Red Bucket w/ White Top of  Dubuque Chitterlings and that would be hog Intestines and I went there!

#ForeverPurple

"Trill" in Willie Cauley-Stein  is an excellent pick but under the Kings current circumstances. Where does the Logo's only boogie man go in @BoogieCousins? Is George Karl going to coach Sac Town and off all people Vlade Divac is calling the Shots with Shaq minority owner...that is Oil vs Water, the Golden Arches vs Burger King, and Ru-Paul vs Kaitlyn Jenner...figure it our Kings!

#SpursFamily

Haha I know what your doing sizing up Kawhi Leonard and the L-Train making a dash for another five-year run at Larry O'Brien. Who are y'all fooling no one hear and Western Conference you better watch Pops and R.C. come July 2015 they are not playing and when the Spurs make moves...the Logo is watching!

(Technically the Spurs are winners but I can't say that due to the Folks they picked as its called "Stash for Spurs Cash")






#BuzzCity dba Bluedude Sporstalk as #ItsABuzzLife or #TeamTealNBA

I love the pick as "Frank the Tank" Kaminsky will be decked out in Under Armour Clutch Fit as that deal was done a few weeks ago and trust me on that I know a few folks. Now they were dead last with the Money Ball in 2014-15 as they boast "Bigs" like Bismack Biyambo and Spencer Hawes and an ideal SF in M.K.G. who is still taking shooting classes as Dick Baumgartner's Shooting Camp in Richmond, Indiana. The Bluedude once out shot Larry Bird at that Camp in Middle School...real talk! See Air Jordan and GM Rich Cho knew the pick without having a clear thought of what's on the roster and that is called indecisiveness or clueless or both!

Bluedude will get back on his horse as I have been resting my Thinking Cap the last week...love ya Bluedude Heads and always thinking about you and what we have here....Sports...that's it!

NBA DRAFT 2015...the "AFTERMATH" Part 1 the Winners in "SQUEEZE the ORANGE" as the Lottery was crazy and big names slipped and slipped some more! #NBADraft2015 #LogoWatch #LogoWatchFusions #MonstersInside94x50

This 2015 NBA Draft shows you that there was talent in the draft but the same talent deep into the draft. Players that were surefire Lottery-Bound to even 1st rounders slipped as there were some surprises.

the 
"AFTERMATH
of 
NBA Draft 2K15 Part 1
Top 5 Winners


Note: Before we get into the Draft Board names like L-Train dba LaMarcus Aldridge, the "Lake Oswego Monster" Kevin Love, and "Mississippi Lightning" Monta Ellis will be bigger than life in Free Agency!

Winners:

T'Wolves: Great Picks and I love the Tyus Jones Draft Day Trade as he goes home. K.A.T., Wiggins, and LaVine is a nice young core...

Lakers: Grabbing @DLoading was pivotal to getting back the Lakeshow as they get the best non-big in the 2015 NBA Draft. Larry Nance Jr. is "Bloodline" and talented but remember one of these three in @BoogieCousins, L-Train, or even the "Lake Oswego Monster" possibly coming to L.A....stay tuned! 


 
 
Rockets: Badgers and Dekker along with 'Ville Monster Harrell was a steal and adds young depth at the wing and on the baseline. They still need a PG but those two picks with Harrell getting picked as the best player on the board at that time was A+ for Morey and Company!

Heat: Are you kidding me as they try to move up to get Emmanuel Mudiay and instead gets Justise Winslow falling into their lap. Wade County will get signed and the "Dragon" along with Bosh and Hassan Whiteside lookout Southeast!

76ers: Not because they had 25 of the 60 picks but getting "Big Jah" with all those Big Man Troubles dating back to Andrew Bynum...yes Philly celebrate. Now I hope this isn't true but did Okafor and Family buy a House in L.A. already...I hope not? If they did cal it their Summer Home!

HABS PRICE grabs VEZINA for best Blue-Paint Tenant!..."WORD Around the BOARDS" as Les Habitants Net Minder CAREY PRICE gets the "Fight for Georges" 2K15 and still in the running for the "Fight for HART"! @CP0031 #HabsNation #FlyingFrenchmen #LesHabitants #1BluePaintTenant2K15

He might not be done as he grabs some SHAM-PAG-NA for this one as Montreal Canadiens net minder Carey Price gets his first of soon to be many Georges Vezina Trophies as the best Goalkeeper in Ice Games for 2014-15!

Price dominated and with Star Defenseman P.K. Subban in front of him and and ever-improving Habs Squad Lord Stanley Cup #25 has to be in the not so distant future. Price led Ice Games with a sparkling GAA (Goals Against Average) 1.96 and Save Percentage .93% with a NHL high 44 W's.




Just 27 years of age the Habs Future is bright as Price ran away with the final tallies...as the "Price was Right" in the Blue Paint for 2014-15

Price is still up for the Hart Trophy (NHL M.V.P.) as he has a chance versus John Tavares (Isles) and "Alexander the Great" Ovechkin (Caps)...

SENS Karlsson wins the "Fight for JAMES"...Swede Erik Karlsson wins his 2nd NORRIS Trophy!..."WORD around the BOARDS" going "Fight for JAMES"! @ErikKarlsson65 #SensNation #SensPride #TeamSweden

At just 25 years of age Ottawa Senators Star Defenseman Erik Karlsson wins his 2nd Norris Trophy as he is one of the premier Defenseman in Ice Games! The Sens getting to the 2K15 Stanley Cup Playoffs was largely due to Karlsson's Play and he is just getting started.

Playing in all 82 games Karlsson tallied 66 points including 21 of them he "Lit the Lamp". How good can Karlson be well former Norris Trophy Winner and Edmonton Oilers great Defenseman Paul Coffey has eluded to the fact if they let Karlsson go and take him out of being schematically all over the place he will be one of the best ever. Coming from Mr. Coffey that is a huge statement.

1. Erik Karlsson #Sens  964 pts

2. Drew Doughty #Monarchs 889 pts

Doughty had more 1st place votes...

Subban caps off another stellar season as the only season that counts for the Le Bleu-Blanc-Rouge is one grabbing Lord Stanley Cup...

Both Weber and Josi are the premier Defensive Line in the game...

Who needs the Norris Trophy when you took home the 2K15 Conn Smythe like Blackhawks Defensman Duncan Keith did...and how 'bout them Michigan Apples!      

2015 NBA Mock FINAL Draft in "SQUEEZE the ORANGE" going the "CALM before the STORM" as NBA Free Agency 2k15 Business is taking away from the DRAFT...or is it all inclusive? #LogoWatch #NBADraft2015 #NBADraft #LogoWatchFusions #SqueezeTheOrange #MonstersInside94x50 #KritapsPorzingisLatviaVideo

Karl-Anthony Towns Jr. says he has not been notified about being the #1 Pick by the Minnesota Timberwolves and My Space is better than Facebook as Mark Zuckerberg is Vanilla Ice of Social Media! C'mon K.A.T. Daddy spill those Van Camp Pork and Beans or you will be suiting up for the Washington Generals for 2015-16 and they never win!

Believe nothing you here from the C's and Trader Danny...absolutely nothing...Lol!

Watch Rashad Vaughn (UNLV) and Chris McCullough (Cuse)...

"Mississippi Lightning" Monta Ellis if he goes to the Heat they need a "Big" and that is Cauley-Stein or even Frank the "Tank" Kaminsky...

the "Lake Oswego Monster" Kevin Love could be headed back home maybe to Portland to replace the L-TRain LaMarcus Aldridge...hence R.J. Hunter for insurance for Wes Matthews (Achilles Injury) and to go with "Dame" and CJ McCollum as "Dubs" showed you Guards and Shooters and spreading the hardwood is the new NBA...

NBA Free Agency Summer 2K15 plays a part in this Draft like every draft...

@BoogieCousins where does he land...

Nugs PG Ty Lawson out there...

Kings "Rudy the Monarch" in Rudy Gay is out there...

Bulls need a 3rd wheel to go with D-Rose and Jimmy...who as I like Jerian Grant and will they move up to get him or stay at #22 n grab Wright, Jones, or even Hunter...

Stanley Johnson sliding down...

"Frank the Tank" and "Badgers and Dekker" moving up...

DODGERS 0 CUBS 1 F/10...CUBBIES getting solid Starting Pitching handles DODGER Nation again beating!..." A CUP of JOE in the SHOW Report" as #GoCUBSGo is loud and clear "Friendly Confines" Surround Sound! #LADvsCHC #DODGERNation #NorthSiders playing #MaddonBall

If you would have told me the Cubbies would be 2-0 in their four-piece with Dodgers Blue having beat Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke gets a No-Decision the Bluedude would have scaled the Willis Tower!

Well Maddon Ball is here to stay and all of a sudden the Cubbies are back rolling and the Dodgers are reeling. Both Greinke and Cubs Starter Jason Hammel get No-Decisions as both were on their A-Game. The Dodgers just cannot put any ducks on the pond and get any run support for the "Greink-ster"! The North Siders have been getting top-shelf pitching from Hammel and now with defense and timely hitting lookout NL Central.

It was Chris Denorfia sac-fly that scored Matt Szczur that put the Cubbies in the winner's circle. Dodgers Captain Save-A-Game Kenley Jansen came in with the "Sacks Packed" after Joel Peralta was a mess in front of him in the 10th.  

Cubbies move to 39-30 just 6.5 games back of the Redbirds in the Central and a 1/2 game back of the 2nd palce Buccos. The Dodgers at 39-33 are first place by a 1/2 game as the Gigantes and the D-Backs and Friars are within five or less.



SPARTY grabs 5-Star SG LANGFORD from Down Home ALABAMA!..."SCHOLASTIC DAYZ" as Top 20 Class of 2016 SG JOSHUA LANGFORD commits to "IZZONE" and the Spartans! @TheJoshLangford #AtlantaCelticsAAU #MadisonAcademyAL

Tom Izzo and the Michigan State Spartans get a big grab in the Class of 2016 as they get a commit from the State of Alabama's #1 Recruit in SG Josh Langford. Langford plays his high school ball at Madison Academy in Madison, Alabama right outside the Bluedude's Alma Mater Alabama A&M University in Normal, Alabama near the Rocket City Huntsville, Alabama.

@TheJoshLangford took his first visit ever to the Spartans and committed on the spot as he is a monster on AAU Powerhouse the Atlanta Celtics. That is AAU home to Dwight Howard and Josh Smith (Rockets) and Thaddeus Young (Formerly of the Nets now a 2015 Free Agent opting put of his Player Option just days ago).

Langford has NBA size at the shooting guard listed at 6-6 and just north of 200 el bees. He reminds me a lot of former Spartans great Shawn Respert but more athletic and bigger. Checking him out at the Adidas Gauntlet in Dallas, Texas a few months back he can shoot it with the best of them. He and Dallas TX Native Terrance Ferguson as they both can knock it down from deep.

J-Lang should be an instant hit in "Izzone" with that rugged floor game and Movie Popcorn Butter "J"...






     

@BoogieCousins is he leaving #ForeverPurple?..."SQUEEZE the ORANGE" talking KINGS All-Star Big DeMARCUS COUSINS with Trade Winds swirling around him! @BoogieCousins #ForeverPurple #LakerNation #OMagic

Ok its that time to hear all the NBA Trade Rumors as teams blow smoke screen jockeying for position top get their so called "Man" or "Guy"! The Sacramento Kings are getting the most attention as their 24-year old "Big" and the Logo's only Boogie Man DeMarcus Cousins appears to be 50/50 on the trading block.

Now the Lakers were rumored to have heavy interested in him before he signed his extension two years ago.  Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak has made it no secret the Lakers want talented Big Man who might be the best Center in the game today.



The Orlando Magic with Nikola Vucevic and all sorts of young "Goodies" in their bags would have some serious leverage if the Kings wanted to go that route. The question is would #ForeverPurple deal such a star that would set them back yet again?

Stay tuned as what the Lakers want they normally get and with no David Stern calling the shots it might be Open Season!

BULLS #1 Target in the 2015 NBA Draft..."WEST SIDE Story Report" talking the 2k15 SEE RED Draft Room which has three guards at the Top of the 2K15 Draft Bucket List! @JerianGrant @_DWright55 @TyusJones06 #

There is no secret what the Bulls need in the 2K15 NBA Draft as the "Logo" caters more and more to "Mouse in the House" and that would be guards. Yes the Bulls have D-Rose and restricted Free Agent to be Jimmy Butler but they need more quality behind them.

Nate Robinson, Aaron Brooks, and D.J. Augustin were solid Caddy's for the Bulls either behind D-Rose or playing for D-Rose as he nursed those injuries. Now its time to get  "Keeper" or someone they can throw right in with those two and go grab the East!

BULLS Draft Immediate Needs: PG/SG

Top Three on BULLS 2K15 Draft Bucket List

Combo G Jerian Grant #NotreDame



PG Tyus Jones #Duke

Combo G Delon Wright #RunninUtes

As the Bulls select at #22 I assume Grant will be gone as Houston (#18), Washington (#19), Toronto (#20), and Dallas (#21) might all be looking for PG's. I know Grant is being heavily courted by the Rockets and Wizards as Jones is also being looked at by the Mavs. Wright and Jones are my two picks if the Bulls go Guards as Jones will be a steal at Pick #22 if he is there. Wright might fit more of the mold with his NBA Size but it will be between these three players on June 25, 2015...

360 Degrees...Remember Grant's Dad Harvey Grant played in the NBA and his Uncle Horace was a 1987 1st round pick by the Bulls...as Wright's Brother Dorrell plays for the Rip City Blazers and was once a DePaul Blue Demon Commit!  

DODGERS @ CUBS going Four-Piece at new WRIGLEY in "A CUP of JOE in the SHOW Report"...DODGER Blue starts their longest MOTEL Swing to date with four in new Wrigley vs the new CUBS playing MADDON Ball! #LADvsCHC #DodgerNation #NorthSiders #4PieceTreatFromWrigley

The Los Angeles Dodgers start their ten game Motel Swing at Wrigley for four, then off to Miami for three, and  then three in the desert vs the D-Backs before their next day off July 2, 2015. Dodgers Blue is coming off losing two of three at Chavez Ravine as the Giants are 9-3 vs LAD in 2015.

The Chicago Cubs still going in the NL Central as they come off winning two of three vs the Twinkies this past weekend. Everyone is expecting the North Siders to fold and that has not been the case as they are 37-30 as we go to press. Now they get four in Wrigley vs the NL West leading Dodgers!

WADE County and the LAKE SHOW...hmmmmmmm!..."MAKING NOISE" as the HEAT eye the DRAGON would they let Dwayne Wade walk as his Asking Price might not be in the budget! @Lakers @Heat #WayOfWADEBusiness @LiNingUSA

I have seen it before and I think it is purely smoke screen as Heat Icon Dwayne Wade is entertaining the thought of leaving Pat Riley and the Miami Heat. Well its business first and foremost and then after that some folks might be hurt in the situation.

The Los Angeles Lakers appear to have a mutual interest in Li Ning's Scooby Doo Endorsee Wade as he cannot be happy about the cash they are throwing at Free Agent PG Goran Dragic. The real story is Wade has sacrificed making more money to put King James and Chris Bosh into the fold as they are younger. Now he wants that same "Loyalty" back in return from Riley and the Heat.




The major stumbling block is Wade as maybe two year left at most to still be somewhat effective. Then you throw in never leave any cash on the table for someone else to make it happen as that "Loyalty" or Hand-Shake Agreements are like the wind!

Could the Lake Show get Wade in the fold who knows. They will have Jahlil Okafor, the Black Mamba, and the #27 pick in the 2015 NBA Draft along with "Purple Julius" Randle and some nice pieces to throw around. Now the question remains who has the leverage here Wade or the Heat as it looks and feels like the Heat has everything in their corner!

CUBS 8 TWINS 0 F...NORTH SIDERS take the RUBBER Game behind ARRIETA'S Complete Job four-hitter and a FOWLER "Granny Pack"!..."WEEKEND BENDERS" with DAD at the Ballpark! #CHCvsMIN #MaddonBall #Twinkies #HappyFather'sDay2K15

The Chicago Cubs appear to be back on the right track as they once again start to head north in the standings. They finished the Minnesota Twins off today taking the Rubber Game behind a Jake Arrieta masterful performance which led to the Cubbies offensive breakout late in this one!

Arrieta goes complete job scattering four hits and striking out seven walking no one and shutting down that Twinkies Offense. The Cubs eight runs were highlighted by a Solo Bomb by Anthony Rizzo in the 5th and a "Granny" by Dexter Fowler in the 8th that led to a crooked six on the board in that 8th frame.

Twinkies starter Kyle Gibson allowed just two runs through the 5th then the Twinkies Pen imploded. Cubbies Fowler led with 4 RBI's as Starlin Castro went 3 for 4 scoring a run and Anthony Rizzo 2 for 4 scoring two runs.

The North Siders move to 37-30 just seven games back of the NL Central leading Redbirds. The Twinkies fall to 37-32 that's 3.5 games back of the AL Central leading Kansas City Royals.  

HEAT wants DRAGIC long-term playing Home Games in the 305!..."SQUEEZE the ORANGE" as The "DRAGON" will get Max Offer Sheet from the HEAT in Free Agency! @Goran_Dragic #HeatGang #HeatBusiness #TheDragonAtPG

Make no mistake about it as the Miami Heat try to climb back into relevancy in the East there are looking at keeping their free agent PG in the fold long-term. Through numerous media outlets the Heat are expected to try and keep PG Slovenia National Team Captain Goran "The Dragon" Dragic long-term with a hefty deal that points to the "Dragon" 80/20 staying in Miami!

The former 2013-14 3rd Team All-NBA Performer from the Phoenix Suns will reportedly get somewhere in the neighborhood of $80 million over 60 months. The Suns obviously didn't think he was worth it as they dealt Dragic and Isaiah Thomas and kept Eric Bledsoe and paid him almost Max Duffel Bags.

Moving forward the Heat's Depth Chart at the PG Slot has Mario Chalmers and 2014 top pick Shabazz Napier. The Heats also has the #10 pick in the 2015 NBA Draft coming up this week and I have them taking man-child Stanley "Stan-i-mal" Johnson from Arizona as they fill an immediate need at SG/SF with Wade County aging and Luol Deng having hardly any tread left on his tires...thanks Coach Thibs!

CUBS 4 TWINS 1 F/10...LESTER and MAY dueling as it came down to the NORTH SIDERS striking in the 10th!..."WEEKEND BENDERS" as the CUBBIES hit the Winner's Circle at TARGET! #CHCvsMIN #NorthSiders #Twinkies #MaddonBall

The Chicago Cubs needed a solid outing from Jon Lester and that's exactly what they got. Lester goes 6 1/3 frames allowing just three hits and a run as he walked three and struck out seven. It was a Starlin Castro two RBI single in the 10th and a Chris Denorfia RBI single behind that that gives the Cubbies a 4-1 win in the 10th.

Twins starter Trevor May was also on his game going six allowing seven hits and a run. That Twins Pen was solid as it was Blaine Boyer who the North Siders got to in the 10th. Both Dexter Fowler and Anthony Rizzo collected two hits for the North Siders with Eddie Rosario, Kurt Suzuki, and Eduardo Escobar each getting two base knocks for the Twinkies.

Cubbies move to 36-30 while the Twinkies fall to 37-31 as the Rubber Game will be on Sunday featuring Cubs Jake Arrieta vs Twins Kyle Gibson...  

RANGERS 2 WHITE SOX 3 F...Pale Hose 2014 #1 Pick RODON of the #NCSUWolfPack is holding his own as he beats RANGERS Hardball!..."WEEKEND BENDERS" with the SOX RODON quickly joining SALE for a Southpaw South Siders Two-Pack Deluxe! #TEXvsCWS #RangersNation #SouthSidersBaseball #ALHappenings2K15

The Chicago White Sox #1 pick (#3 overall) in the 2014 MLB Amateur Draft LHP Carlos Rodon has been as good as advertised. He gets his 3rd "W" versus one defeat on Saturday at the "Cell" 3-2 as he beats the Texas Rangers 3-2.

Rodon goes six allowing two runs on four hits walking three while striking out five. The Pale Hose three-run 3rd frame aided them in the win as the Rangers picked up a crooked two on Rodon in the 2nd for their two runs.

Texas starter Nick Martinez pitched well enough to keep his ball club in the hunt for a "W" as he goes   six allowing three runs on six hits. For both you take it those rough patches in the 3rd and 5th you have an entirely different game possibly going into extras as both Pens did their part.

The Pale Hose move to 29-38 and that was after losing four straight to the Pittsburgh Pirates this past week. The Rangers at 37-32 have moved up considerably since the middle of May as they are just a Rawlings Hardball throw from the first place Houston Astros.

ORIOLES 5 BLUE JAYS 3 F...O's MACHADO dba "M2" two-bagger in the 9th was the difference ruining a solid effort from BUERHLE!..."WEEKEND BENDERS" the O's finally slow down the surging BLUE BIRDS! #BALvsTOR #Os #JAYSnation #ALEast2K15Business

The Baltimore Orioles gets a much-needed "W" as they steal one from the surging Blue Birds in the 9th. It was a Manny Machado two RBI Double in the top half of the 9th that gave the O's enough cushion to win 5-3 as the 'Jays scored one in their half of the 9th.

That Blue Birds Pen which has been solid in June blew  a solid outing from starter Mark Buerhle as he went seven giving up just two runs. O's starter Kevin Gausman kept the O's in it as he went five strong allowing just two runs as one was on a Sac-Fly and another on a wild pitch.

The O's Caleb Joseph started the rally with a RBI single in the 9th in front of Machado's two-bagger for the win. Jose Bautista and Jose Reyes led the 'Jays with two hits each. The O's move to 35-33 while the 'Jays fall to 37-33 as they are 2.5 games back of the AL East leading #ItsARaysLife!    

TERRANCE FERGUSON the "Next in Line" from Big D..."SCHOLASTIC DAYZ" talking the 6-6 180 el bees of NERF RIM Capabilities talking Dallas, Texas Native @terranceferguso #Top25HSBB

He can shoot it with anyone in the Class of 2016 and he is a high-riser if i ever saw one. When I first saw Dallas, Texas Native Terrance Ferguson play at now defunct Prime Prep Academy in Dallas I was in awe of not his shooting ability but his superior Nerf Rim Capabilities.

Now @terranceferguso finds himself among the Top 10 in the Class of 2016 with notable names like Malik Monk (home state Arkansas), Dennis Smith Jr. (home state North Carolina), and Josh Jackson (home state California) talking elite guards in High School Basketball.

As we go to press if there was a few things Ferguson (Mo Will Academy Hooper) needed to work on it would be his Handle. Right now I have yet to see him create in traffic of the bounce and get his own as he uses that superior athleticism to get by. That will change moving up the levels as he will at least need Central Expressway 75 high Noon Handles to be the "Deal" at the major level. He reminds the Bluedude of former Plano, Texas HS Star and Fab Five Member Jimmy King but longer...

 

Bluedude Sportstalk SPORTS SHORTS 218...McCARRON won't start for "WHO DEY" in Week 1 in 2015 but the "STRAWBERRY RIFLE" Bengals QB Andy Dalton "Beware"! #TheJungleFootballBusiness @Bengals #DaltonvsMcCarron

Nothing like a competitive atmosphere within the Depth Chart talking NFL Football. There will be no changes at QB of the 2K15 Depth Chart talking the Cincinnati Bengals but pressure is mounting. That pressure is coming from 2nd-year 'Bama QB A.J. McCarron on Bengals starting QB Andy Dalton and the pressure is real.

McCarron has been so impressive through camp through reports he is the surefire #2 QB on the depth chart. It's this easy McCarron is a winner and being a "Winner" goes a long way. There is at least 10-15 2K15 starting NFL QB's still trying to figure that out and it's not just wins and losses.

Taking a look at the "Who Dey" 2K15 QB Depth Chart as we go to press:

#1 "Strawberry Rifle" Andy Dalton #HornedFrogs

#2 A.J. McCarron #Bama

#3 Josh Johnson #SanDiegoU

With QB Terrelle Pryor cut Johnson assumes the 3rd slot on the Depth Chart and now comes the question do the Bengals keep three QB's on that 53-Man Roster going into 2K15?

"RAISE the JOLLY Roger" as the 2015 Pittsburgh PIrates are set to go 135-27 as they will never lose again!..."WORD around WARNING Track"...#BUCN #Buccos #ZoltanStrikes #RaiseTheJollyRoger #WeR'TheBUCS

Just like that they have caught fire on the Senior Circuit and MLB Inter League Play and a steady diet recently of the Pale Hose dba Chicago White Sox and Junior Circuit Road Kill didn't hurt. It's a combination of few things as the Buccos are 39-27 as we go to press winners of 8 game sin a row!

#BUCN Top Stars for 2015


RHP Gerrit Cole "Ace" of the Buccos Starting Rotation

It did not take long for Mr. Cole to emerge as the Pirates clear cut #1 on the starting staff. He is 11-2 as we go to press with a sparkling 1.68 ERA and 97 K's to just 22 free passes. To make matters worse for hitters they are hitting just .227 against Cole in 91 frames.

LF Starlin Marte  

He is part of the best OF in the Show and he is a Monster as his leather is steadily improving. At the Dish (249 AB's most of any Pirate) with 12 bombs and 45 ribbies hitting a solid .285. He also leads in runs scored (37), Hits (71), HR (12), and RBI (45) as Andrew McCutchen plays alongside of him in the OF and that helps his leather tremendously!   (Marte Video below)



3B Josh Harrison

Looking like and playing like former Bucs "We R' Family" hot corner Bill "Mad Dog" Madlock but faster on the pond Harrison is a keeper. Emerging as one of the best hot corners in the show he handles both the Ash, Maple, or Bamboo well at the dish and throw serious leather at 3rd. His .284 average, 34 runs, and 16 two-baggers is among Pirates leaders.


RHP A.J. Burnett

Burnett has come full circle as he landed back in the 'Burgh and was suppose to be a #3 at best more of a 4 and has surprised even himself. At 6-2 with a 1.89 ERA and hitters hitting just .233 against him he has been better than good. Now can he hold up as he will get around 20 more starts in the 2015 season.

Buccos Skipper Clint Hurdle

Unassuming but one helluva Skip a true player's manager as that has resonated through the Bucs Club House. They are just 4.5 games back of the blazin' Redbirds (43-23) who ranks as the 31 outfit in the Show through June 18, 2015.

CF "Cutch 22

C'mon the former NL M.V.P. is what he is a Superstar and needs no further intro...

@JimmyButler Free Agent Business 2K15..."WEST SIDE Story Report" talking BULLS "SeeRed BUTLER" looking for Greener Pastures as he is looking for lesser YEARS and more VALUE in the new Deal...be careful GAR and PAX! @Bulls @JimmyButler #BullsNationFreeAgentBusiness2K15

Yes as though that supposed "Rift" between D-Rose and Bulls 2014-15 All-Star Jimmy Butler has anything to do with this. Butler a Restricted Free Agent this Summer doesn't have many options as the Bulls can match any offer her gets.

Now Butler has changed his tune in recent weeks eluding to he wants no part of a Max Contract instead going for 2-3 year deal with a front loaded amount and maybe the Bulls will not match that. Another route he could take is a two-year deal from Chicago and at the end of that deal and become an unrestricted free agent.

Bulls VP of OPS John Paxson and GM Gar Forman has the all leverage to a point but this one can get dicey and the "Mayor of the Madhouse" might have somewhat of an influence on Butler with Fred Hoiberg's free flowing offense!

The MLB Inter League Marquee for "Hump Day" June 17, 2015 is alive and well in the Great Northwest. We get the San Francisco Giants versus the Seattle Mariners from Safeco on the back end of a four-piece.

The Gigantes finally ended their misery at home beating the M's on "Get Away Day" at AT&T Park yesterday ending that nine-game "L" streak coming out of the home clubhouse. Now they get two at Safeco before heading to Chavez Ravine this weekend as they have owned the Dodgers this season.

Tonight we get two of best on the "Bump" in the Show as we go "A Cup of Joe in the Show Report" from Safeco Field...

2014-15 NBA World Champions


Where do you start as the Golden State Warriors were suppose to be competing with the Los Angeles Clippers for the Pacific Division and make a nice run in "Winning Time". Now fast forward through the 82-game trek and "Winning Time" from April through June and the Golden State Warriors take the fast track to an NBA Banner and a Parade Route. 

They finish off the Cavaliers dba "Believeland" in six games winning the last three games after being down 2-1. It was Super-Sub turned starter Andre Iguodala that took home the "Fight for Bill" Trophy dba NBA Finals M.V.P. edging out his teammate Stephen Curry and Cavs King James who would have been a landslide winner if the Cavs took home the Chip!

Just a remarkable turnaround from just seven to eight years ago with players like Stephen Jackson, Baron Davis, Al Harrington, and Jason Richardson to now Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Andre Iguodala, and Draymond Green.

Then there is that turnover in Ownership and the front office as "Dubs" hit grand slams on Mark Jackson, Steve Kerr, and Jerry West not to mention drafting Steph Curry, Klay Thomspon, Draymond Green, and Harrison Barnes and even moving a nice piece in Monta Ellis letting Curry takeover.

Kerr was the huge "Key" as his Staff he put together in Alvin Gentry and Ron Adams and Luke Walton was phenomenal. As a player Kerr was five Chips (3 Bulls 2 Spurs) and all that knowledge gained from Lenny Wilkens (Cavs), "Zen Master" (Bulls) to "Pops" (Spurs) and even back to his College Coach the great Lute Olson (Arizona).

Now comes the hard part as they should celebrate this one way into the summer of 2015. The 2015 NBA Draft and Free Agency will be big for "Dubs" as Draymond Green is first order of business with Coach Gentry leaving to Coach "State Bird of Lousiana" the Pelicans!

Congrats Warriors and Dub Nation on your 2nd World Championship...    

MARINERS 2 GIANTS 6 F...LINCECUM on the "Hill" along with MATT DUFFY at the Dish stops the Bleeding" for Fisherman's Wharf Hardball at AT&T Park!..."GET AWAY DAY" as the GIGANTES nearly fall back to .500 with AT&T Park Woes!

It was Gigantes starter Tim Lincecum with a steady hand on the "hill" that helps the San Francisco Giants get out of one of their worst home winning droughts in quite sometime. Tim had major help from Gigantes hot corner Matt Duffy as Fisherman's Wharf Hardball wins going away 6-2.

Duffy started the scoring in the 2nd by taking M's starter J.A. Happ for a two-run bomb making it 2-0 Giants. Brad Miller of the M's came back in the 5th with a solo blast  cutting that lead to 2-1 only to have Angel Pagan knock an RBI single in the bottom half of the 5th for a 3-1 San Fran lead.

Miller than in the 6th hits another RBI single making it 3-1 Giants. Linecum would go 5 2/3 frames allowing those two runs on five hits. Happ would be gone after six allowing three runs on seven hits and that Duffy two-run bomb.

San Fran would get three more in the 8th for insurance as Duffy goes RBI single and Casey McGehee goes two RBI double. Then Gigantes Captain Save-A-Game Sergio Romo gets his 18th save of 2015 as the Giants move to 34-31. The M's fall to 29-36...as they get two more in Seattle starting on "Hump Day"!  


 

TWINS 2 CARDINALS 3 F...REDBIRDS take 2 at new BUSCH and now gets two at TARGET as News swirls that the CARDS are the new "SPY GATE"!..."GET AWAY DAY" as the REDBIRDS might be in trouble off the field! #MINvsSTL #Twinkies #RedbirdNation #MLBInterLeague

The St. Louis Cardinals take the first two games of a home and home series with the visiting Minnesota Twins as they win 3-2 at new Busch. The Redbirds gets another strong effort from future Ace Michael Wacha (9-2) as he picks up the "W" going six strong.

Wacha left in the 7th after the Cards 3-1 lead turned into a 3-2 lead on a Kurt Suzuki two-bagger scoring Eduardo Nunez for the Twinkies. This was after Minnesota scored on a Trevor Plouffe RBI double in the first making it 1-0 Twinkies!

The Redbirds came right back in the 2nd scoring a run on a Randal Grichuk sac-fly tying the game at 1-1. Mar Reynolds then singles home two in the 3rd as the Redbirds had figured out Twinkies starter Kyle Gibson. Gibson would get the loss falling to 4-5 as he goes six as well giving up three runs.

Redbirds Kevin Siegrist gets his 3rd save of 2015 as the Cards move to a robust 43-21 while the Twins fall to 34-30. That was the good news at the park as through numerous media outlets the Redbirds are under investigation for all sorts of indiscretions from stealing the Houston Astros Database and other valuable Team Information etc.. Stay tuned as the Feds are involved...not good!  

WARRIORS @ CAVALIERS Game #6 in the "Fight for LARRY" w/PLAYBOOK!..."DUBS" trying to get a CHIP first since since '75...King JAMES says it's going SEVEN because I am the best player in the WORLD!...#ALLIn at the "Q" will be ready to go!...#GSWvsCLE #StrengthInNumbers #AllIn #SomethingHas2GiveInGame6 #NBAFinals

The Golden State are playing "Nellie Ball" and winning forcing the Cavs Hand and now we get Mouse on Mouse in the Cavs House for game 6. Andre Iguodala has been the "Dubs X-Factor and the Cavs have had no answer for him.

Cleveland needs someone else to ride with LeBron and they don't have to hit the Phone Booth but just be somewhere close in the vicinity. James said after game 5 that it will go seven as I am the best player in the world...get'em Akron's Favorite Son! As for David Blatt it's your move and the Cavs hit single for game 6 is  "All Eyez on Blatt" for game 6 with a "z"!

PLAYBOOK

If the Cavs go "Nellie Ball" as well it has to be in favor of the Warriors as that's how they played in the 82 game trek...

"Dubs" must get out in Transition to get easy looks...

Cavs must ride the #AllIn Wave and and don't stop until they get enough...Lol!

Does David Blatt know what he is doing as its game 6 of the NBA Finals in mid-June?

Warriors lead assistant Alvin Gentry (soon to be heading to the Pelicans) dunked in the shoot around this morning at age 60...look for him to get Brandon Rush's Jersey for game 6!

Cavalier Dancers shake what ya Mama gave ya until you see zeroes in the 4th...

Where is the Cavs Bench in this series?

LeAndro Barbosa is coming to life and now he needs the Artist formerly known as the "Matrix" to make it the Phoenix Suns of old...

Money Ball Racks...who wins?

"Attack Mode" and getting to the Stripe will be "Big" in game 6...

Turnovers vs "Live" Turnovers for TD's...who wins?

Glass Work (Rebound the Vegetable)

Hustle Board...who wins?

"Dubs" must force someone else to beat them as King James has been a one-man wrecking crew...

Klay Thompson if you go "Biggie Size" for Game 6 "Dubs" will get SHAM-PAG-NA for sure!

Will Timofey Mozgov return in game 6 to be a force or is he an afterthought as we go "Smalls" on "Smalls"?        

Cavs not since the mid 60s so don't just give "Hope" for yourself do it for the Dawg Pound, the mid 90s Tribe, the Rock and Roll Museum, and Cuyahoga County Faithful that is all about "Cleveland Rocks"!

Game 6 is here...

What a game and a series and first and foremost I would like to extend congrats to Coach Coop and the new Bolts as they will be back trying to get the Cup in Tampa in the next decade. They pushed the Hawks playing the Hawks Game which is what the Bolts do as they arrived in the Finals beating three Original Six Teams...Wings, Blue Shirts, and Habs and that was no small feat!

As for the 2014-15 Chicago Blackhawks after enduring that long 2014 Summer as they lost to the Monarchs in Game 7 of the West Finals last season its "Payback" on a few different fronts. Three cups in six seasons and getting cup #3 at home for the first time since 1938...how do you top that.

#FrozenTalkHAWKS
2014-15 Stanley Cup Champions




Moving forward D.K. with the first score and Kaner with the goal #2 and the much-maligned "Craw-Dad" in net fabulous in this series. Like most dynasty's its starts at the top and trickles down throughout the organization to the playing surface.  Hawks Owner Rocky Wirtz letting Prez John McDonough and GM Stan Bowman do what they do and you surround yourself with  big time folks as well and  class organization not even talking about the best Captain in the NHL in Captain Serious Jonathan Toews.

The Conn Smythe winner was Duncan Keith and well-deserved as he is the best defenseman in the game forget the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Now we get a parade and a celebration as Indian Head Nation will enjoy this one!  

CLIPPERS and BUZZ City do a Big TRADE!..."MAKING NOISE" in the LOGO as Clips lead man DOC traded for "BORN READY" who starred in "The FISH that didn't save BUZZ City"! @StephensonLance @Matt_Barnes22 #BossHawes #NewClipJoint #ItsABuzzLife

Through numerous media outlets the Charlotte Hornets dba Buzz City and the Los Angels Clippers dba the new Clip Joint agrees on a somewhat big trade. This trade will hinge on what Doc Rivers can do with the player he is getting as Jordan could use both the players he is receiving and they should be better what Mike received from the player he is sending to L.A.!

#ItsABuzzLife and #newCLIPjoint 
Trade

Clips get SG Lance "Born Ready" Stephenson...

Hornets get SF Matt Barnes and C Spencer Hawes...




Now moving forward Jordan and current Hornets GM Rich Cho had to be thinking they had a huge upgrade getting "Born Ready" in the Queen City as Mike told Stephenson to behave. What did Stephenson do end up on ESPN's Sports Nation on "Jeers" weekly and a complete waste as Larry Bird and Gold Swagger had to be elated to get rid of that clown.

"Born Ready:" now gets to join a CP3 and B.G. 32 led Clips Team with Dic Rivers leading the charge and if Lance doesn't get back to what Lance does in this environment he will be headed to China next season with one year left on that 3-year deal he signed with the Hornets in the Summer of 2014!    

The Hornets get Professionals Professional in both Barnes and Hawes as Matt should help Buzz City even more on the wing defensively. Hawes should provide a money ball threat while letting Biog AL Jefferson to play more PF as Al-Jeff picked up his Player Option late last week from Buzz City...stay tuned!
