    Brian, great article on the Bulls Rumored trade package. You pointed out all of the same things that I was wondering. I feel that if the trade went through that it would hurt the Bulls more than help the Bulls. Yes Love is a 26 and 12 player, but I thought I saw someplace that had Gibson as a 18 and 12 player if he were a starter? I could be wrong, but am pretty sure I am not. So add in Taj's defense compared to Love's and then factor in the Shooting of McDermott and Merotic's all around game and this trade is a NO BRAINER for the Bulls. DON'T DO IT!

    Now on the flip side if this is just a ploy to get Cleveland to up it's anty on getting Love, then I think it is a good one! Losing Wiggens, Bennett, and 2 first round picks??? I think that is a bad trade for Cleveland as well! If I were the Cavs, I would wait it out and attempt to snag Love next season in free agency, while keeping both players and picks.

    Why has no sports writer (that I have knowledge of) covered the interesting tidbit that Aaron Rodgers was born a few hours fron S.F. and Colin Kapernick was born a few hours from Green Bay?
    Effectively they are going up against their true blood heritage.

    @ Beibut Shumenov vs. Tamas Kovacs: Fight Time, Date, Preview, TV Info and More: Just FYI, the challenger's name is actually Tomáš Kovács since he is, as you noticed correctly, from the Slovak Republic. Never mind that your predictions may be completely wrong as it is, after all, but guesswork. What I was looking for in your article, and that's the missing piece of info, is the time of the match. Could you fix that? Thank you. Note: The message board underneath the article keeps giving me an error message so I'm unable to post a comment there.

    Like your comment about Rigondeaux, it show knowledge and is not biased, you are witnessing one of best boxers in this era, with immaculate technic, and very pro in his bussines. I am very proud of the legacy of the master of Cuban boxing, ''Kid Chocolate'' and Rigondeaux is a standarte of that legacy.

    Read your article and watched your video on the new WWE 2K14 stuff, and I gotta say, you're really damn funny. Any chance that you'll be making more videos on the game when it comes out or something similar?

    I think wilder is a solid fighter, packs a good power punch, I see a lot of potential in him, I just think he needs to fine tune his boxing skills and fight more credible fighters in the heavyweight division before he steps in the ring with the klitschko brothers, because he hasn't been tested yet to be honest, but in saying that the klitschko's know how to win and get it done boring or what they know how to win. Thats where I think wilder will get outdone due to ring experience because all the recent challengers have been outclassed by the brothers, they frustrate they're opponents which mentally drains fighters into fighting the way the klitschko want them to fight and out goes the gameplan they had before the fight started, Other than that wilder has a bright future and hopefully he can change the heavyweight division and restore the respectability it deserves. At the end of the day it only takes one good punch and i believe wilder has that punch.

    hey brian remember how you said deontay wilder has a good shot at klitschko, I told you that david haye rocked him, they didn't fight but it was during hayes training camp, he spars against haye, haye catches him good exposes wilders defense easy with his speed, heres the footage for you http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g7rhzS1rlOk
