Steve Kerr hired to coach Golden State Warriors

It had been rumored for weeks by the so-called NBA experts in the media, that when Phil Jackson took over as team president of the New York Knicks that he would hire Steve Kerr.

To some it seemed far-fetched that Jackson would actually hire Kerr, who has never been an NBA head coach, to lead the Knicks.

While Jackson was still deciding on who he would hire, Kerr was also negotiating with the Golden State Warriors.

As it turned out, the Warriors out-bid the Knicks and have hired Kerr away from his job as a TNT broadcaster to replace Mark Jackson as their head coach.

Kerr, according to his agent, will be paid $25 million dollars on a five-year deal.

The 48-year-old Kerr was born in Beirut, Lebanon while his dad, Malcolm was engaged in higher learning and research in the Middle East.

The former point guard played his college basketball at the University of Arizona for Lute Olson and his teammates included Sean Elliott, Tom Tolbert and Kenny Lofton.

As an NBA player, the 6’3, 175-pounder played for Phoenix, Cleveland, Orlando, Chicago, San Antonio twice and Portland. He scored 5,437 points and 1,658 assists. He won five NBA Championships.

The National Football League is doing its best to put excitement back into the Pro Bowl.

Last year, it was no longer AFC vs. NFC but instead, it was the Jerry Rice team against the Deion Sanders team.

The next Pro Bowl will have a new wrinkle as well.

The next game will be played at the site of the Super Bowl in greater Phoenix area of Glendale, Arizona.

The Pro Bowl will remain a week before the Super Bowl and the format will stay the same as last year.

The Pro Bowl will move back to Hawaii in 2016.

Detroit Red Wings chasing Blue Jackets for eighth spot in Western Conference; playoff run in jeopardy

Back in February when the Blue Jackets were 5-12-5, it looked like another season that was going to end in April.

The Detroit Red Wings at the time were in a playoff position (the top eight spots) and headed to the playoffs.

Well, this 48-game season has been one who has benefitted teams like the Blue Jackets and New York Islanders and has hurt Detroit and Nashville.

The Blue Jackets for the first time in their history won the season series from the Red Wings which is unbelievable.

As of today, April 22, The Blue Jackets have 51 points, tied for 7th place with Minnesota and the Red Wings are 9th with 48 points, tied with Dallas. The Blue Jackets have two games left while Detroit has four left.

The Red Wings lost in a shootout at Vancouver on Saturday and could not tie the Columbus.

Detroit has a streak of 21 straight seasons of making the NHL playoffs, which ties them for the fifth-longest such streak in league history.

The Red Wings try to play catch-up tonight as they host Phoenix.

Commissioner Goodell says NFL playoffs won’t expand in 2013

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said on Monday that the league will not be adding any teams to the playoffs for the 2013 season.

There had been talk and speculation that the NFL would expand past the current 12-team format.

The other topic at the owners meetings in Phoenix yesterday was that there is a scheduling conflict with the Baltimore Ravens opening at home due to the Baltimore Orioles game on the same date.

The Ravens play at M&T Bank Stadium and the Orioles at Camden Yards, just across the streek and the two stadiums share the same parking lots.

Traditionally, the NFL season opens with the Super Bowl winners playing host on the Thursday night after Labor Day.

The Ravens will not have that opportunity unless the Orioles move their night game on September 5 to the afternoon.

The NFL will not have the option of using September 4 because it is the first night of the Jewish holiday, Rosh Hashanah.

Goodell says he has twice talked to MLB commissioner Bud Selig to help get a resolution with the Orioles, but has not heard anything back.

The NFL has moved opening nights before. Last year, the opener was moved to Wednesday avoiding a conflict with President Barack Obama’s acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention.
