Kevin Love trade made official

The worst-kept secret in the NBA has now been made official as Kevin Love will be joining Lebron James and Kyrie Irving in Cleveland to form a new big-three. The Cavs had to part with uber-prospect Andrew Wiggins, so the price was steep. Still, the Cavs now have to be the favorites to come out of the East to the NBA Finals. And while many currently think a team coming out of the West would be favored, that may not be the case if Love, James and Irving gell quickly in C-Town.

Look who’s ready to wreak havoc on NFL offenses. Jadeveon Clowney is a beast and these two plays give a glimpse of the damage he can do. Pairing him up with JJ Watt gives the Texans some serious weapons on defense. Now, if they can just get a real quarterback . . .

Today, Braun unveiled its new branding campaign with the NFL and Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl champion quarterback, Russell Wilson.

The campaign, titled #FaceGreatness with Braun Confidence, was developed to encourage men to be confident, to chase their dreams, and to never give up on their quest to achieve greatness.

After leading the Seattle Seahawks to an impressive win in Super Bowl XLVIII, Russell Wilson is ready for another NFL season and wants men to know that achieving life-long dreams requires preparation and confidence.

Kevin Love to Cavs in place

It’s the worst-kept secret in sports, and now details are leaking out about the trade of Kevin Love to the Cleveland Cavaliers that will be announced later this month. Compensation will include Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and a protected 2015 first-round draft pick. Minnesota will not be able to unload the J.J. Barea, Luc Mbah a Moute or Alexey Shved contracts in the deal. Also, Love will reportedly opt out of his contract in 2015 and re-sign with the Cavaliers with the terms including a five-year, $120 million-plus contract extension. I’m assuming this is just a verbal commitment, which could of course unravel, though it’s very likely Love will keep that commitment.

This will give the Cavs the next NBA “big-three” combo of Lebron, Love and Kyrie Irving, with young talents like Dion Waiters and Tristan Thompson complimenting them along with veterans like Mike Miller and possibly Ray Allen. The only piece missing is a rim protector, but the Cavs have plenty of assets to make more moves.

It’s a calculated risk for the Cavs, and the fans in Cleveland are split a little on this one, as many want to see Wiggins develop into a superstar in Cleveland. But these opportunities rarely present themselves in the NBA, and the Cavs would be foolish to pass on Kevin Love. With Indiana facing a down year after the tragic Paul George injury, the path to the Finals in the East may be pretty easy for the Cavs. But you can’t take anything for granted in the NBA. It will take time for these three stars to mesh, but if they do this team can be a powerhouse.

Scores Report Interview with Carolina Panthers Luke Kuechly

Luke-Kuechly-Old-Spice

Carolina Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly is the kind of impact player that NFL teams envision when they select a player in the top ten of the NFL Draft. Selected ninth overall in the 2012 NFL Draft, he was named Defensive Rookie of the Year that season and NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2013.

What can he do for an encore in year three? Kuechly’s eyes are set on the Super Bowl. Kuechly’s old-school physical style and “Smelf-confidence” lends itself perfectly to a partnership with old-school icon Old Spice.

At every level you’ve played, you’ve been a tackling machine. How do you account for this? What do you do differently than other players?

“I’ve always had a great group of guys around me. At Boston College, Bill McGovern (former DC) did a great job and he is the reason why I developed in college. And when I got to Carolina, I had some older guys around like Jon Beason [and] Thomas Davis that taught me a lot, and I learned what it takes to be successful. So I owe a lot to those guys for the success I’m having today.”

Who was your favorite player growing up?

“Ray Lewis or Brian Urlacher. Those guys played hard and played a long time at a very high level.”

How do you feel about the Urlacher comparisons?

“I think you’ve got to look at how long Brian played, how high a level, the Pro Bowls, he’s been to a Super Bowl; I think that’s the most important thing. I’ve played two years and that’s it. It’s cool to look at it now, but I have to keep looking forward, keep working.”

Who would win an arm wrestling contest between you and Urlacher?

“Oh, man I’m sure he would. He is a big dude. “

Talk about the partnership with Old Spice.

“I partnered up with them to talk about the hair product that came out earlier this year. There’s shampoos, conditioners, different gels. The biggest thing behind them is the simplicity to use the product. You can use it real quick and don’t have to take a whole lot of time. We use it quite a bit in the locker room. I passed it out to some of the linebackers and everybody is loving it right now.”
