    It really is an odd question. I normally don't like to look at any team and single out one player as the winning factor. But as far as the NBA goes, it seems as though everyone has done just that....

    Cavaliers = Lebron James.

    GSW = Steph Curry

    Chicago Bulls = Dwayne Wade

    Etc....

    I'm just mentioning the names because there are so many people (not you) that completely forget about the rest of the athletes in this situation. If I had to guess, I'd put my money on the Spurs winning. Not because Durrant is out, and definitely not because I don't think Curry can pick up the slack. I think they will win because they just won 7 games in a row, and 12 of their last 14. They have the momentum and the players to pull it off.

    That's not to say the Cavs haven't been doing great, they have. But I think they will gas out from frustration and confusion from losing one of their main gears for a big game. This is just my humble opinion.

    YES! This is a fight I am actually super excited for. Georges St-Pierre is making his comeback to the UFC! GSP is honestly one of, if not the very best fighter I've ever seen, and definitely one of the most entertaining. When he goes into fight mode, it's like watching the mechanism of a watch function. A true master of the fighting craft.

    UFC president Dana White released a statement that said GSP will take on Michael Bisping for the middleweight title later this year. I sure hope that means tomorrow.... But I am going to guess that it will be in October sometime.

    I feel like I should say that GSP will definitely win this fight. Though Bisping is absolutely no joke. There's a reason he is champion. Looks like we are all going to get to find out!

    More than 300 athletes will pour into Indianapolis next week, all biding for the top spots at this years NFL combine. There will only be let down for many, but it will be an amazing life changing moment for some. This is the next step in their path to be an NFL football player. Over the past few months especially, all of these athletes have been trying their best to add value to themselves. The more a player shows himself to be valuable in as many aspects as possible, the greater chance they have of getting picked for the team they want.

    With that said, there are a few players this year that have been successful at adding tremendous value to themselves.

    Here are my top 5 prospects at this year's NFL combine:

    1. Leonard Fournette: RB at LSU. It's no question that Leonard Fournette is high on everyone's list. He is one of the most talented runners we have seen in at least a few years. That combined with size, gives him an edge over other players.

    2. Christian McCaffrey: RB at Stanford. One word sums up McCaffrey, and that word is versatile. I'm really excited to see what he does at the combine. Should be entertaining.

    3. Dalvin Cooke: RB at Florida State. The best thing about Cooke is that he is becoming known as an explosive runner. Though on the other hand, that can be a downside. Not every coach wants to coach a player that is "explosive". They can be difficult to coach.

    4. Alvin Kamara: RB at Tennessee. Kamara is an excellent route runner. That is really sought after when selecting someone who will fit in to your playbook. Not to mention, he is also quite dynamic.

    5. James Conner: RB at Pittsburgh. What to say about James Conner.... I genuinely enjoy watching this guy. He is returning to the field after beating cancer. That right there is enough said, for me. But I should also mention that he is one of the most physical runners in this class, with little worry about his overall long run time. But I see him being super useful in terms of short burst TD runs.

    Usually all-star games aren't my forte, but this year's NBA all-star game is looking good. I would most definitely be attending the game, if it wasn't for it being relocated from North Carolina last year. That was quite a mess. Now the game will be played at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans.

    All the familiar NBA superstars will be in attendance to the all-star game, but this new year will bring new blood. Both the Eastern conference and the Western conference will host two new players each. The West is welcoming Gordon Hayward and DeAndre Jordan, while the East will have Kemba Walker and Giannis Antetokounmpo.

    Another thing I am super excited for, is The Roots will be debuting their basketball themed musical, 'The Evolution Of Greatness' before the game. The musical is said to trace the legacy of the National Basketball Association, and the impact is has had on American culture.

    The game starts on Sunday, February 19, at 8 p.m. ET. Though the The Roots and other shows will begin beforehand, so make sure to tune in early.

    I actually have seen a few headlines the past couple days. They all say the both McGregor, and Mayweather "have agreed to fight terms". Obviously implying that they have taken an enormous step forward. But I am going to call bs on it. First of all, the handfull of articles all seem to quote each other. And it seems like the source isn't really known to investigate their leads. Secondly, in each of the articles it quotes, "nothing is signed yet". If nothing is signed yet.... there is absolutely no deal to even speak of. Anyone remember Mayweather vs. Pac? Mayweather's people strung out the paperwork on that for years.... years. I can't even begin to imagine what kind of signing he would want McGregor to do.

    So not only do I not see the fight happening any time soon, I honestly don't see it happening at all. Mayweather has more money than he knows what to do with. I just can't see him coming out of retirement to fight someone who could very, very well beat him. The only other reason for him to fight, would be his pride. And right now he can talk all he wants because he is the "champ". I assume he keep it at that.

    This definitely would be the largest PPV fight in history. I would imagine in bother viewers, and money. Both fighters would earn in the triple million digits. But other than that, I got burned on the Pac vs. Mayweather fight. I'm not going to be doing that again, at least not through PPV.

    The New England Patriots defeated the Atlanta Falcons at Super Bowl 51. The game went into over-time with a final score of 34 - 28. This marks a record setting 5th Super Bowl win for Tom Brady, and 5 super nice rings to go with them. And even though I don't care much for Brady or Belichick, that is a remarkable accomplishment.

    Some are saying this is one of the most impressive comebacks they have ever seen. But I disagree. Even though the Patriots were way down in the first half, I know Brady well enough to not sleep on him. Not once did I get too excited that my prediction for the Falcons to win would come true. Brady performs under stress. No secret there. So to say it's such a crazy comeback is a bit of a stretch. I'd say it's more of a hobby for the Pats at this point.

    Good on you, Patriots. You deserve it.

    The New England Patriots will face off against the Atlanta Falcons, today in Super Bowl 51. Though this isn't the outcome I (or most others) would have expected it to be, I am super excited for it. Obviously the main showdown I am looking forward to is Tom Brady vs. Matt Ryan. It's always fun to think about it in a way as simple as that. QB vs. QB. I am going to give this win to Ryan and the Falcons. Even though the big dogs in Vegas are leaning much more towards a Patriots victory. Last checked, it was around 62% in favor of the Pats. Well it's game day! So we will find out soon!

    Here is all the info you need to know:

    When: Sunday, Feb. 5, 2017

    Another Great Part of the Super Bowl are the Awesome Commercials: Here's the best source to view all the ads.

    Radio: Sirius XM radio will have Super Bowl 51 on channel 88 (81 or 225 for Patriots call; 82 for Falcons call)

    This is pretty clever on their part. They'll be able to feature the Super Bowl Champions, the score, any cool game replays, and whatever else goes along with that.

    On a related note, I saw that the NFL is releasing their new GoPro style helmet camera for the SB. It's mounted right on the players face grill. That should also be some awesome footage.

    The Australian Open was just an all around great tournament this year. There were two matchups that everyone wanted to see. And we absolutely got them. Roger Federer defeated Rafael Nadal, winning 6-4 3-6 6-1 3-6 6-3 in three hours and 38 minutes. Might I add, after dramatically turning round the fifth set break down. This is Federer's 18th Grand Slam title. That's quite amazing.

    Serena Williams beat out Venus Williams to win her 7th Australian Open championship. That is also extremely impressive. The match ended in a 6-4, 6-4 victory over her sister. This is Serena's 23rd Grand Slam title.

    Serena later said, "There's no way I could be at 23 without her. Thank you Venus for inspiring me to be the best player I can be."

    Congrats to the both of you! You deserve it.

    Also, besides who you want to win, who do you think will win? Which team would you put your bet on?
