Road to Superbowl 50, Trouble in the NBA


The NFL is busy this week with last week being the qualifying games for Superbowl 50. We now have the two teams that are set to go head-to-head in San Francisco on February 8th the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers, Both teams skilled with impressive seasons its a match-up that will be interesting. Carolina with the better offense and Denver with the better Defense it'll be exciting how these two teams will face off in the 50th anniversary of the Superbowl. But that doesn't mean we're going two weeks without football, the Pro-Bowl is today Sunday January 31st at 7:00 PM. Similar to any All-Star game for any sport two teams coached by the best coaches in the sport or celebrity coaches are picked usually representing their distinct league or a region, typically East vs. West. Each team is comprised of the best player for each positions within their respective leagues, chosen by the fans of the sport. This year's Pro-Bowl is being held in Hawaii. Coached by Micheal Irvin and Jerry Rice. 

(Their respective rosters voted by the fans are found here)


In NBA news, the Cavaliers fired their head-coach David Blatt last Saturday and brought in Tyronn Lue. His first game as head-coach wasn't a win but he did come back and gave the Cavaliers a win against the Minnesota Timberwolves. 

To the West the LA Clippers got news that their point forward was injured last week after an altercation with Matias Testi (The equipment manager for the LA Clippers) Blake punched Matias causing Blake to fracture his hand and not allowing him to play in the Clippers game against the Bulls, which they won 120 to 93.   

Do you see the Cavaliers moving far with their new coach?

Who do you see winning Superbowl 50?

NBA All-Star Weekend and NFL Play-Offs


     The weekend is good for sports lovers. Starting with the NBA we have a total of 22 regular season games scheduled to be played this weekend, as well as earlier this week the All-Star weekend starters were announced Thursday night. Kobe Bryant led the voting seeing as it's his last All-Star Weekend. Behind Kobe Bryant, Stephen Curry came behind with the second most number of votes. Also the uniforms for the All-Star weekend were revealed. The All-Star Weekend starts February 14th and will be played in Toronto, Canada.

The uniforms for the 2016 All-Star Weekend. Revealed on Thursday.


     The NFL is one week closer to the Superbowl 50. With the defending Denver Broncos taking on the New England Patriots, both teams with a 12-4 record. Instead of a deciding game for the Superbowl its more of a game to decide which of the two played the best in the 2015 season. Also a re-match between the two teams when the Broncos broke the Patriots undefeated streak on November 29th. Both of these teams started the season undefeated and with neck-and-neck stats this season, it should be a close match-up between these two powerhouses. 
     On the other side we have the Carolina Panthers and the Arizona Cardinals, while its more of a predictable game with predictions in favor of the Carolina Panthers it makes sense. The Panthers started this season booming staying undefeated winning 14 games straight losing one then won on the last game of the regular season, the Panthers really surprised the NFL with their strong season after finishing 2014 with 7 wins, a tie, and 8 losses. Their opponents the Arizona Cardinals finished the season strong with a 13-3 season looking to contend in the Superbowl after their defeat in 2008 for Superbowl XLIII against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

What do you think of the NBA All-Star uniforms? 

Which of the the four teams remaining do you see going to Superbowl 50?
