First off we head to Miami, where there’s cause for concern at one of the NBA’s biggest franchises. They might be vying for their third championship title in a row, but that hasn’t stopped Chris Bosh from blasting the Miami Heat’s recent efforts on the court, and warning the team that things must change.
Following the Heat’s 105-95 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans, Bosh said his team sucked… a notion which was echoed by LeBron James.
Now over to the NFL where you’ll find more doom and gloom… at least that’s if you’re listening to Mark Cuban. The Dallas Mavericks owner has warned that the football league is only ten-years away from complete disaster, having witnessed a series of big-money T.V deals in recent times.
Cuban believes that the NFL is being greedy in trying to dominate the on-air schedule, but thinks that it will hurt them in the long run as fans will quickly get bored of too much exposure. Never one to shy-away from controversy, the Mavs owner said people could get sick of the sport.
Meanwhile, whilst on the subject of dominance in sport, it’s only fair Floyd Mayweather gets a look in. The unbeaten world champion is busy preparing for his upcoming showdown with Marcos Maidana, but took time out of his hectic training schedule to send a message to British boxer Amir Khan.
Khan has claimed that he spoke to Mayweather on the phone after being snubbed for the May 3rd bout, and his would-be opponent promised him that the two would get it on at a later date… That means that as long as Khan can avoid getting knocked out in any interim bouts, he will get his wish of getting a shot at Mayweather’s belts.
And finally onto the WWE where strong speculation claims that the organisation has changed its stance on the departure of CM Punk. Punk left the company almost two months ago, and a huge media storm has followed, but now U.S sources state that Vince McMahon and co. are keen to move on from the debacle.
This is in contrast to the suggestions that the WWE were desperate to have Punk back, as it now looks like he could be gone for good.
