We are back for the second installment of the weekly rundown. I don’t think this week was as busy as last week but check out a few things we highlighted that you might have missed.
New York Knicks Guard Baron Davis dislocated his knee cap and will be out at least 12 months. Honestly one of the worst injuries I have seen. Livingston and Davis have to be right there. We wish him a full recovery. This was a big loss during Game 4 for the Knicks with two other Guards out already.
Oklahoma City Thunder Center hurt his hip during the Game 4 against Dallas.
Chicago Bulls Center Joakim Noah injured his ankle during Game 3. It was another big loss for the already Rose-less Bulls.
Atlanta Hawks Center Al Horford returned to action during Game 4. That was the only thing good that happened that game for the Hawks as the Celtics killed them.
Oklahoma City Thunder Guard James Harden won the Sixth Man of the Year Award.
Miami Dolphins OLB/DE Cameron Wake got an 4 year 49 million dollar extension with 20 million guaranteed.
Pittsburgh Steeler QB Ben Roethlisberger graduated from Miami of Ohio during the weekend. Congrats to him don’t get to hear about too many athletes graduating after leaving school early.
Xavier Guard Mark Lyons transferred to Arizona. Will be eligible to play during the 2012-13 season because he graduated from Xavier during the spring.
Arizona St. Guard Trent Lockett is transferring to Marquette. Lockett transferred to be closer to family as one of his relatives is very sick.
Ohio St. Guard Jordan Sibert is transferring to Dayton. Sibert is a Ohio product so I had to show him love.
Wake Forest Guard Tony Chennault is transferring to Villanova.
Bob Bowlsby is the new commissioner of the Big 12 Conference.
Big East commissioner John Marinatto resigns
Conference USA added Charlotte and UT-San Antonio. Now they have 13 teams. Charlotte will have an eligible NCAA D-1 team starting the 2015 season.
Los Angeles Angels 1B Albert Pujols hit is 1st home run of the season. Now that he has gotten this out-of-the-way the normal terrorism of pitchers should incur anytime soon.
Washington Nationals RF Jayson Werth broke his wrist will be out for at least 12 weeks.
Milwaukee Brewers SS Alex Gonzalez is out for the season with an ACL tear.
Philadelphia Phillies P Cole Hamels is suspended 5 games for hitting Nationals rookie Bryce Harper on purpose. 5 games for a pitcher is nothing he will only miss one start but he will lose a lot in-game pay. Telling the truth isn’t always good Cole? It made your pockets a lil’ lighter.
San Francisco Giants P Guillermo Mota was suspended for 100 games after testing positive for a performance enhancing drug. This is the 2nd time Mota has gotten caught taking enhancement drugs which is the reason he got stuck for 100 games. I know he is saying what about Braun?
Josh Hamilton went home run derby during a game this week as he hit 4 of them in one game. Rangers y’all might want to pay this man right now.
Let us know how you feel about the events that have happened this week. We will be back next week.
