Aaron Hernandez was arrested and charged with murder. The Patriots released him right after the arrest. His NFL career is over, probably. There appears to be a lot of evidence against Hernandez, including a selfie of him holding a gun, his text messages and a matching bullet casing in the rental car he was driving. It is a really sad situation that I would not like to write about. I extend my sympathies to the family and friends of the victim.
With the NBA Draft tonight, I am excited to see a couple things.
How many trades are there going to be?
What will the Cavaliers do with the number 1 overall pick?
Where is Mike Muscala going to be drafted?
First off, I think there are going to be A LOT of trades. It isn’t a very good draft class so I think teams will try to make trades and move bad contracts to try and make room for the 2014 free agent class. I do think that the Cavaliers will actually make their pick. It is very confusing as to what they are going to do. Every draft expert seems to think that Nerlens Noel is the best prospect in the draft. However, some people are saying Alex Len is the top player on the Cavaliers board. My thinking would be that the Cavaliers are scared of a big man coming out with a knee injury. Remember Greg Oden‘s NBA career? Yeah, me neither.
Mike Muscala will be drafted tonight in the late first round or early second. It is pretty cool that he is coming out from Bucknell. I hope he goes to a team that has a good coach that understands how smart he is as a player. He will also need to bulk up, but there is no reason that he couldn’t do that when it is his job. I hope he turns into a quality NBA player.
Another interesting NBA note came out this morning. It is unlikely that Dwight Howard will resign with Lakers. It appears that the Rockets will be the front runners for him. Dwight Howard and James Harden sounds like an amazing combination of stars. I just don’t know if Howard will ever be the centerpiece of a championship team. People love to bash LeBron‘s mental toughness. Look at Dwight Howard, he is probably twenty quadrillion times worse in that department.
For me, there was really bad news in baseball yesterday. I called it on Monday. I knew Dylan Bundy was going to need Tommy John before it was announced Tuesday. I doubt it will be the end of his career. Their are few people in better shape than him, apparently he hasn’t eaten a hamburger since he was 15 or so. I hope he comes back like Adam Wainwright has and can fulfill the promise that he definitely has.
I need to make a full apology to Tim Lincecum and the San Francisco Giants. Lincecum had been pitching great for the Giants last night. Then I tweeted about it, and he gave up 3 runs. It was my fault and I accept that.
Sorry Big Time Timmy Jim
And this is another reason I love MLB.tv. I got to watch a late night west coast game and finally saw Yasiel Puig play. He’s *bleep*ing good and he is an absolute man-child. That’s all I have to say about him.
