The Cleveland Cavaliers earned a convincing 4-0 series clean sweep against the Detroit Pistons in the opening round of this year’s NBA playoffs but can LeBron James and co. go on to win the title? Well, they’re certainly hitting form at the right moment and the Cavaliers definitely have enough star quality to challenge the likes of Golden State Warriors and San Antonio Spurs for the crown. If nothing else, Cleveland have difference-makers on both sides of the ball and their top talents can more or less win matches by themselves when they are at their very best.

With the Golden State Warriors on the cusp of securing their place in the next round of the playoffs, Cleveland will have it all to do if they are to emerge victorious at the end of what could be a gruelling postseason. The Cavaliers have a much easier route to the NBA Finals than the defending champions, especially as Golden State – who may be without Stephen Curry for the next few weeks – could face the San Antonio Spurs in the not-so-distant future. If nothing else, Cleveland could take advantage of the less testing schedule and the Cavs may be fresher for the seven-match series for the title. Read the rest of this entry »

While rededicating myself to the game of golf, I always wanted to listen to music while practicing. I’ve tried to feed my wired headphones through my shirt or over my back, but no matter what I do, the headphones either fall out or just annoy me to the point where I have to take them off.  With the help of eBay, I was able to get a free pair of Jabra Sport Coach Wireless Headphones into my ears and on the course for a review. I was very excited to do this and get some beats flowing while playing.  All opinions in this review are my own.

The New York Islanders have been playing from behind for almost their entire first round series against the Florida Panthers. One reason for that is because the Panthers have gotten off to fast starts in three of the first four games. Goals at 1:09, 4:32, 6:17, and 2:25 have put the Isles behind the 8-ball.

After taking back home ice advantage from the Panthers with an overtime win in game 3, the Isles came out with very little energy in game 4 and managed only a handful of uneventful shots on goal. Panthers defenseman Alex Petrovic’s shot from the slot midway through the third period sealed the game as it found the back of the net. The 2-1 win by the Panthers has sent the two teams back to Florida, ultimately making this now a best-of-three series.

It’s official: Kobe Bryant has retired after an illustrious 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers. Bryant has matured into a household name over the years but the 37-year-old has now decided to hang up his sneakers and concentrate on his life away from the sport.

In Bryant’s absence, there are plenty of young stars waiting in the wings. Here are a few who could blossom into the new face of Los Angeles in the coming years. Read the rest of this entry »
