The Rant Sports Podcast is back for another hard-hitting edition of the 5 Things You Need to Know. Today, we will give a firm rundown of the five stories that any good, well-rounded sports fan should know. Before we get started, be sure to take a listen to our podcast by simply clicking the link below:
When the Americans topped Russia on Saturday, New Jersey Devils fans were very happy. Remember when Ilya Kovalchuk bailed on the Devils to play full-time in Russia? Yeah, he’s looking like a fool now.
Mark Mulder tore his Achilles tendon over the weekend, which means the 36-year-old’s comeback attempt is likely through. Hey, gotta tip your hat to Mulder because many left his MLB career for dead a good six years ago.
So, apparently the NBA Dunk Contest is now a team event. Are you kidding me? — Dunking is a individual act. Did Michael Jordan jump from the free-throw line with Scottie Pippen throwing him an alley-oop. No, he didn’t.
Bradley Beal made a name for himself this weekend. The shooting guard was so good in the 3-point contest that we was getting Ray Allen comparisons all night long — now that’s high praise for a second-year player. The Washington Wizards are moving out of the cellar, and Beal is a big reason why.
Thank you for tuning in for the second straight day of the Rant Sports podcast, and be sure to check back in tomorrow for a rundown of the biggest news in sports.
