World Peace signs deal

Metta World Peace put pen to paper on a one-year deal with the Los Angeles Lakers yesterday and will take part in a physical today to seal the agreement, according to reports.

The small forward is expected to make the Lakers’ roster and is scheduled to join his new teammates in Hawaii on Monday for the start of their training camp.

The 35-year-old has been missing from the NBA for a year, but now could end his career as part of the franchise he won a championship with in 2010.

Good news from Bosh

In other news, Miami Heat fans have been handed good news by Chris Bosh, who has confirmed he no longer has to take the blood-thinning medication he had been prescribed after undergoing surgery for a blood clot in his lung.

It means the veteran superstar should be ready from day one when the Heat’s practise camp gets underway, and let’s be honest; it’s good news all round.

Giants off the mark

Over to the NFL, and the New York Giants recorded their first victory of the season with a 32-21 win over the Washington Redskins last night.

Having been bested by the Dallas Cowboys and the Atlanta Falcons in their opening two games, hopes weren’t necessarily high in the Giants camp, but the likes of Eli Manning and Odell Beckham pulled through at the MetLife Stadium to give fans something positive to rally around. Next up, the Buffalo Bills on October 4.

Brady on course to break records

Elsewhere, Tom Brady is on course to break records after his great start to the current NFL season. According to reports, if he stays on the route he’s on he could throw for 56 touchdowns.

That would break the record set by Peyton Manning two seasons ago (55), whilst also notching up around 6,032 yards in total; comfortably the most of all time.
