Not many people are criticizing Kevin Durant for quitting Team USA nearly two weeks after the team began training camp, but I am an exception. I thought it was a poor choice by a guy who let down his national team coach and teammates -- even if the majority of folks want to give him a pass.
But as we look closer at Durant's decision, it raises some questions. Is he getting bad advice from Jay Z and Roc Nation, who represent him?
Is sneaker money more important than keeping your word to your coach and teammates?
And is Roc Nation making the right kinds of endorsement deals for Durant, who is negotiationg with UnderArmour and adidas as he ponders leaving Nike.
My answers in this interview with Marc Daniels, host of "The Beat of Sports" on 740-The Game in Orlando.
"Be off the sideline and get into the game!"
Nick and Matt interview one of the greatest defensive players in Notre Dame history! Kory Minor set the school record for most tackles-for-losses and was second in career sacks before getting drafted into the NFL! He's now a motivational speaker and, as evidenced on this episode, loves to have fun!
After the interview, Nick and Matt briefly discuss Paul George's interview and what it could mean for the future of USA Basketball.
Derrick Rose is one of five point guards in training camp for Team USA, and he is the only one who has these three things in play right now:
_ He is trying to initiate a career comeback after playing only 10 games the past two seasons after injuries to both of his knees.
_ He is the only one of the five Team USA point guards who has won an MVP award. Also, he started for Mike Krzyzewski four years ago in Turkey at the World Championship.
_ His coach, Tom Thibodeau, is an assistant on the U.S. staff and is overseing Rose's scrimmages with an eagle eye.
Columnist Bobby Gonzalez attended the first day of practice and wrote that he thinks Rose will make the final 12-man roster, along with Stephen Curry and Kyrie Irving (Damian Lillard and John Wall would miss the cut. I wrote in my camp preview that I thought Rose would be the easiest to cut.
So what are we to make of Rose's strong play and strong words following the colclusion of Day One of Team USA's training camp? I discussed on the Boers and Bernstein Show on 670-AM The Score in Chicago.
Is Duke Basketball head coach Mike Krzyzewski packing his bags and coming to Los Angeles Lakers? Is Jeanie Buss going to get her wish and have the farewell tour for Kobe Bryant, something she was not able to do for Magic Johnson? Or is Jim Buss going to shock Lakers fans and trade Kobe Bryant to New York Knicks to chase his sixth ring with Phil Jackson and Carmelo Anthony?
What grade do you give the 49ers in Free Agency?
I feel like a big baby Lakers fan crying for a new head coach. Any Lakers want to call in and rant on how pathetic we Lakers fans are who keep complaining and whining about the head coach. You think the Lakers suck for another 5 years. We want to hear from you. We will take calls from Clippers fans and Raiders fans. If you want to pile on the Lakers or 49ers on how stuck up and arrogant we are with our Wine and Cheese Celebrity attitude. PLEASE CALL IN. 347-677-1781 & enter 1
LOS ANGELES (April 16th, 2014) -Dan Hardy brings his South-Jersey style humor and opinions to "The Dan Hardy Show" Thursdays for a thought-provoking hour.
For this week's show:
Join him as he has a one on one conversation with baseball legend Davey Lopes. Former four time All Star and two time World Series Champion gives his take on the lack of African Americans in baseball. Where have all the talented Black players gone? Does he see this trend ending anytime soon? He'll also ask Mr. Lopes who is the greatest player that he's seen in the 40 years that he's been in the game
He'll bring his listeners an interesting discussion around Geno Auriemma, Connecticut's great women's basketball coach. After winning 9 titles out of 14 " Final Four" appearances, is he the greatest of all time? How does he stack up against the ""Wizard of Westwood" and Coach Krzyzewski?
He will provide a Dodger update during his "Talking Baseball" segment. This week the Professor from New Jersey will take a journey into the life of super star Yasiel Puig. How true are the latest rumors swirling around that he's in debt to the Mexican cartel? If true, how will this affect him on and off the field? Could this possibly have an impact on his teammates?
Finally, he'll go to Atlanta where a professional sports agent explores athletes and their troubles with the law. He'll delve into the most recent off the field troubles with two San Francisco 49ers super stars (Colin Kaepernick and Aldin Smith) and discuss the seriousness of these recent matters.
Tune in and be part of the conversation Thursday on the "Dan Hardy Show."
