GiveMeSport US Report: NBA playoffs, Penguins sacking & Manziel text

Published Add your comment

Today's headlines for Friday 16th May:

We start off in the NBA where the conference finals have been decided.

The Indiana Pacers will take on LeBron James and the Miami Heat in the East, while MVP Kevin Durant and the OKC Thunder face off against the San Antonio Spurs in the Western finals.

Over to hockey now where reports suggest that the Pittsburgh Penguins are set to fire both their coach and general manger.

The Penguins blew a 3-1 series lead against the New York Rangers in the 2nd round of the playoffs which has cost the two men their jobs.

And finally to the NFL where it appears that all it took was a text to get the Cleveland Browns to draft Johnny Manziel.

JFF apparently sent a text to the Browns quarterback coach urging them to draft him, which resulted in the trade that saw him taken with the 22nd pick.
