Honored During Hall Of Fame Game

It is that time of the year again and football season is right around the corner. Tonight the Hall Of Fame Game features the Dallas Cowboys and the Arizona Cardinals. During half-time, NBC Sports spoke with Hall Of Famer Inductee Jerry Jones on the present state of the Cowboys & the evaluation of the franchise since Jones bought the team in 1989.  After buying the Dallas Cowboys, Jerry decided to fire Hall of Fame Coach Tom Landry during a game of golf. Jones followed up that decision by hiring his former college teammate Jimmy Johnson and then traded his Pro-Bowl Running back Herschel Walker to the Minnesota Vikings in exchange for five players and six draft picks.

Those players were LB Jesse Solomon, DB Isiac Holt, RB Darrin Nelson, LB David Howard, and DE Alex Stewart. The draft picks turned into Hall Of Famer Emmitt Smith, Russell Maryland, Kevin Smith, and Darren Woodson. At the time of both these decisions, Jones was criticized for his decisions making, but it turned out to be the beginning of the Cowboys dynasty in the early 1990s. Dallas would go on to win three Super Bowls in four seasons, but it did not come without some controversy. On March 30, 1994, Jimmy Johnson and Jerry Jones came to a mutual decision to part ways after five seasons together.

“We’ve had hours of candid discussions the last two days,” said Mr. Johnson, “and I can sincerely tell you that I feel better today about Jerry Jones as a friend than I have in our entire relationship. After our discussions, we mutually decided I would no longer be the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys.”- Dallas Morning News 

The Cowboys would replace Jimmy Johnson with Barry Switzer and would win their latest Superbowl in 1996 and they have not been able to reach a Superbowl in 21 years. DJ Hustle

Former Arizona Cardinal and Hall Of Fame Inductee Kurt Warner will be honored in this year’s Hall of Fame Ceremony. Warner began his pro football career as a fourth string quarterback for the Greenbay Packers in 1994, he would later be released. Following Warner’s release, he began working as a grocery store checker making “$5.50 per hour.”  That would not stop Kurt from chasing his dream of being an NFL quarterback. He would move on to play in the Arena Football League and Warner was able to catch the eye of NFL Scouts and would land a back role with the St.Louis Rams at the time.  After an injury to Trent Green, Kurt Warner was able to finally get his opportunity to start in the NFL and turn himself into the MVP of the league.  In 2000, Warner and what is now known as the “Greatest Show On Turf” would win his first and only Superbowl against the Tennesse Titans.  Kurt Warner would make two more Superbowl appearances, but he was able to take home those trophies losing to Tom Brady in 2002 and Ben Roethlisberger in 2009.

As for the final score of the Hall of Fame Game, the Arizona Cardinals would fall to the Dallas Cowboys 18-20. DJ Hustle

Los Angles Will Host The 2028 Summer Games

It has been announced, that the city of Los Angeles will host the 2028 Olympics. It is the first time in 32 years, that the United States won the bid to host the Olympics. The Olympics will take place in Los Angeles California, for the first time since 1984.  The United States has been trying to host the summer games again since the late 90s games in Atlanta Georgia.  Los Angeles lost the bid to the 2024 Olympic games to Paris France, but as the old saying goes good things come to those who wait.

“It has been certainly a roller coaster,” L.A. bid chairman Casey Wasserman told The Times, adding that IOC officials “showed a real willingness to be thoughtful and creative.”

L.A.’S bid committee has estimated it would cost $5.3 billion to stage the Games and has predicted it can track all expenses through revenues such as sponsorships and ticket sales.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, who was at the forefront of spearheading the city’s effort, said the terms of Monday’s agreement should outweigh any increased uncertainty that comes with committing to a major event more than a decade in advance.

The IOC has predicted it will chip in $1.7 billion of its broadcast and sponsorship revenues to Paris in 2024.

Its contribution could rise to at least $2 billion by 2028 because of adjustments to the amount of sponsorship money L.A. would receive for the summer games.

The IOC has already agreed to give the city of Los Angeles an advancement of $180- dollars immediately.

For 2028, the IOC has agreed to advance L.A. a $180-million advance immediately. That is expected to cover the organizing’s committee’s costs for operating an extra four years and pump as much as $160 million into youth sports throughout the city.

Los Angeles bid estimate includes a $487.6 million contingency — money that would be set aside to compensate for the kind of cost overruns that have plagued recent Games, leaving the hosts with substantial deficits.

“Olympic experts have said that L.A. could be different because its plan relies on existing venues such as Staples Center, Pauley Pavilion, and the Coliseum.” David Wharton It avoids spending billions to build new stadiums and arenas.  We will have to see what comes from the final agreement between all parties involved. DJ Hustle

Fresh off her first All-Star appearance Seattle Storm’s Forward Breanna Stewart drops 23 points on 7-for-11 shooting, including the first eight points for the Storm. She also recorded a career-high six blocks and dished out five dimes. With 7:08 left in the first quarter, Breanna Stewart scored her 1,000th-career point. She becomes the third Storm player (Jewell Loyd, Alysha Clark) to accomplish that feat this season. In just her 54th-career game, she ties WNBA great Tamika Catchings for the fourth fastest in league history to attain this feat. (Cynthia Cooper, 45 games; Seimone Augustus, 46 games; Elena Delle Donne, 52 games; Tamika Catchings, 54 games)

Los Angeles’ frontcourt of Candace Parker (17 points, 10 rebounds) and Nneka Ogwumike (13 points, 10 rebounds) anchored the Sparks 39-28 edge on the glass, as the Sparks weathered a late Storm comeback on the way to assuming the season series with a 68-60 win.

Los Angeles scored 21 points off of Seattle’s turnovers, and the Sparks bench outscored the Storm’s reserves, 25-2. DJ Hustle

Dwyane Wade Might Have California Ambitions

Dwyane Wade, earlier this summer informed the Chicago Bulls that he would be picking up his $23.8 million dollar player’s option in his second year with Chicago Bulls for the upcoming season, But he wants to join the Los Angeles Lakers either as a free agent next summer or if the Bulls decided to buy out his contract, according to a source close to Wade’ camp. HustleTV 

Now that the Chicago Bulls are firmly in a rebuilding stage, many have wondered if Dwyane Wade will seek a buyout on the second year of his current two-year, $47 million deal.
If Wade were to be granted a buyout, he would be able to sign with any team he desires. According to ESPN’s Jorge Sedano, the team he believes Wade would most likely choose as his landing spot would be the Miami Heat.

Dwyane Wade Might Have California Ambitions

Dwyane Wade is starting to think about life after basketball, even though he plans on to play two to three more seasons in the NBA. he has aspirations to pursue a career in broadcasting and in the tech world and what better places to kill two birds with one stone then in Calfornia.

Los Angeles is known for their television networks and Silicon Valley is only a small plane ride away.  We will have to see what the Chicago Bulls and Dwyane Wade can come up with to resolve this potential issue.  Mostly likely, the Bulls are going to want some form of compensation via a trade in return for Dwyane’s services.  Chicago is in a rebuilding stage with them already trading Jimmy Butler to Minnesota and releasing Raja Rondo. Being able to get some nice younger pieces to be a cornerstone in the Bulls Foundation.  The Bulls should consider trading Wade for compensation this season, before losing him in free agency and getting nothing in return. Some say Dwayne Wade should stay with the Bulls and others say he should go back to Miami, or maybe he will come to the Los Angeles Lakers but we will see.

The question that is being raised by NBA Analyst will and can these two superstars Co- exist on the court.  Russell  Westbrook who is the reigning league MVP and is coming off a season for the ages averaging a triple double. That has not been done since The Big O Oscar Robinson 1961–62 season.

The last time Russell Westbrook had a superstar caliber talent like Paul George it was future Hall of Famer Kevin Durant and he departed to join the now five-time NBA Champions the Golden State Warriors.  Next season will be something to watch with all the talent shifting from the Eastern Conference to the West Conference. Especially, with Carmelo Anthony rumored to be headed to the  Houston Rockets. HustleTV
