Boston vs. Philadelphia
This series has been overshadowed by the Heat’s struggles without Bosh and the amazing ease the Spurs and the Thunder have had heading into their matchup. Yet, this series is going to a game 7 and either team could win. The Celtics may be aging but their veterans joined with the triple double machine Rondo are a difficult matchup. Pierce is leading the team in scoring at just over 19ppg, Garnett is pulling down a team high of 8 boards, and Rondo is dishing nearly 12 assts. per game. A victory by the Celtics would be expected, but another trip to the Conference Finals would be an unlikely outcome for their season, more than likely made possible by the injury to Derrick Rose. The Sixers have been led in scoring by Lou Williams, who? I don’t know but at nearly 15pts a game he along with the exciting Andre Iguodala and the board work of Spencer Hawes the Sixers have a chance to make it back the Conference Finals for the first time in the 2000-01 season. Not sure who will pull out the victory but hopefully it’s a replay of games 1 and 2 that were won by 1 point by each team.
The NFL Players Union have been hot since the Bounty sentences came down. The players involved are suing Roger Goodell and looking for the NFL to release the evidence. Yet, the most recent charge of collusion during the 2010 season of a secret salary cap may enable the Players Union to put a dent in the shield. The NFLPA is claiming that the teams had a secret cap of $123 Million. Their evidence is based on the actions of the league as they have fined the Redskins and Cowboys for “overspending” during an uncapped season!! There will be lots of legal dealings but it sounds fairly resounding that the NLFPA is right. They claim that the secret cap cost its members nearly a billion dollars in salary. This could cause several problems for the league moving forward and also give Roger Goodell a less than savory public image, which is most important to the NFL.
