Up 20 something points in game 6, they coughed up (not choked because I am being nice) the game and eventually lost the series 4-3. Oh yeah, did I mention they also coughed up a couple games to the Golden State Warriors this year, which contributed to the Warriors record start so far. Different owner, different players but same old cursed Clippers.
The game and shot almost five years ago, although it feels like it happened over a decade ago. In 32 games, that includes 28 starts, Kobe Bryant is averaging 24.4 points per game against the Heat, and in Bryant’s high individual game he scored 42 points against the Heat of Christmas Day 2004. The Lakers blew the opportunity to secure their second win of the year and dropped a winnable game in New York by getting stagnant on offense allowing and not answering a late Knicks rally and also going ice cold in the final seven minutes of the contest. There is no doubt that stagnation in the offense causes bad shots, besides when you hold a team to 39-percent shooting from the field it should result in a win.

Things are looking up because the Yankees aren’t quite as good as the average division leader. This next table shows how teams have historically done when they have between a 4-8 game lead and are 10 to 15 games above .500. Ten out of fourteen of these clubs ended up winning their division and that includes teams with only a 4 game lead. All in all, it seems reasonable to argue that the Yankees have a 70% chance of winning the division based solely on history. But a 70% chance of success means that the Yankees have a 30% chance of failure.

Super Bowls are great for an overall view of the quality of a franchise over time but they don’t really give us a realistic look at how that franchise stacks up against the others on a year-to-year basis. Playoff appearances on the other hand do. It’s impossible to win a Super Bowl if you can’t make the playoffs. Going to the playoffs generally means that team was better than most in the league and can possibly contend for a Super Bowl. Lets take a look at how well Jerry Jones the General Manager has faired in making the playoffs without Jimmy Johnson as the head coach.

According to Michael Wilbon of ESPN said that the NCAA signed a contract with CBS Sports that spans from 2011-2024 and costed the NCAA $10.8 billion. That contract will pay the NCAA about $830 million dollars per year. So the profit for NCAA is at least $1 billion dollars in a span of 3 weeks of basketball. So where does this money go obviously it goes somewhat to the players but it mainly goes to the university, I think athletes should directly get that money so they can pay for stuff that they need during their time at college. According to Joe Nocera of the New York Times, if college athletes were paid there might be a less likely chance of scandals like the one at Miami University.
