That is every athletes dream and most people love from sadasd's blog

TSNs Jack Armstrong offers his thoughts on Anthony Bennetts big game, the skills of Jeff Teague, the performance of Nick Calathes, the energy of Joakim Noah and the compete level of Amir Johnson. Miralem Pjanic Jersey . 1. Anthony Bennett (Cavs): Congrats! Finally. Its been a very frustrating and disappointing rookie campaign for the young Canadian out of UNLV. The Cavs have won three in a row after an embarrassing loss at home to the undermanned Lakers and firing their GM Chris Grant. A wake up call? Maybe. For Bennett, its got to feel good and hopefully the fact that hes rounding back into shape will help his confidence and he relaxes and plays his game. Lots of pressure being the #1 overall pick in the draft to say the least. 2. Jeff Teague (Hawks): For the Raptors to win Wednesday, they have to control this guy at the point of attack. Hes terrific at getting into the lane and outplayed Kyle Lowry in their first meeting back in early November. Hes had a nice season at 15.7ppg and 7.3 apg. Lightning quick and he changes speeds really well. Gets into the lane almost at will. His penetration and ball-hawking skills defensively will be factors to watch. 3. Nick Calathes (Grizzlies): Awesome job filling in at the point guard spot vs. the Wizards Tuesday night with 18 points, seven rebounds and six assists. Not a bad performance at all. Loved how he played with great poise at the end of the game vs. John Wall and concentrated on getting his team organized in their half-court offence and getting the ball to their two bigs and playing the power game. He really impressed me with his command of the game plan. Nice pick for them. 4. Joakim Noah (Bulls): Fabulous game Tuesday night vs. the Hawks. Watched the game and was blown way by the energy he had and the impact he had on the game. Posted a triple-double with 19 points, 16 boards and 11 assists. He competes at the top of the list for players in the NBA; not many that play harder in the entire league. A winner. With the Raptors currently (big game Wednesday vs. Hawks) in the third seed right now in the East with the Bulls, Hawks and Wizards occupying the 3-6 range of the East, the team I fear the most for a first round matchup for the Raptors is the Bulls. In spite of Derrick Rose being out and Luol Deng being traded, this team has what it takes to win in the playoffs and grind the game to a screeching halt and make you play ugly. For a young Raptors team in their first playoff series, this would be a matchup Id prefer they avoid. I know the Raptors have beaten them two of the first three games theyve played this year (they play again on next Wednesday in Toronto, coming off a back-to-back with Washington) but just ask last years Nets if you want to deal with the Bulls in the playoffs. Led by Noah, this club gets after you at a level in the playoffs that takes some getting used to. 5. Amir Johnson (Raptors): One of my all-time favorite Raptors. Not sure if hell play vs. the Hawks Wednesday but hes always been a gamer and wonderful competitor. The All-Star Break couldnt come at a better time for him than now. He needs the break to heal his injuries and fatigued body. He gives it his all for you and I respect that. I think hed be the first to tell you that he needs to play better and with more consistency down the stretch for the Raptors to be Atlantic Division champs and to also secure the third seed. If you watch the Raptors enough, its pretty obvious that when Johnson and Terrence Ross are going good and compliment Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan, Jonas and the bench, this team can play with anyone in the league. The night in and night out high level performance of Johnson and Ross, in my eyes, is the key to this team making a run here down the stretch. Consistency needed. Gonzalo Higuain Juventus Jersey . The official spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Wednesday because the league hasnt announced the award. Crawford was the Clippers third-leading scorer and the NBAs top-scoring reserve with 18. Paulo Dybala Juventus Jersey . JOHNS, N.Mo Farah believes patience will be the key as he bids to become the first man in 40 years to defend the 5,000m and 10,000m Olympic titles. The 33-year-old is aiming to repeat the feat of Finlands Lasse Viren, who won both titles at the 1972 Games in Munich and the 1976 Games in Montreal.Farah will be heavily tipped to emerge victorious from both events, given his imperious form since winning in London in 2012. He has won nine out of 12 5,000m races while boasts a 100 per cent win ratio from five 10,000m runs in the aftermath of the day dubbed Super Saturday.Farah was one of the star acts on a day when he, Jessica Ennis-Hill and Greg Rutherford won gold medals in track events on the same night.With focus now turning to this years Games in Rio, Farah is almost ready to launch the defence of his titles. Farah crosses the finish line to win 5,000m gold at the London Olympics in 2012 Speaking to Sky Sports News HQ, Farah said: Its difficult because winning a double was easy but to win another double when most of my opponents have had four years of preparation? It gets harder.Its not going to be as easy as London. Its going to be hard but Im going to have to stay patient, believe in myself and my abillity and keep doing what Im doing. Rodrigo Bentancur Juventus Jersey. Anything can go wrong so I just have to stay patient, stay on my feet and keep doing what Im doing. Ive ticked most boxes so theres just a tiny bit more to go in training in terms of tuning in.There are just a couple of key sessions where Im not going to tell you exactly what they are. Other than that, Im good to go.Farah is one of the most experienced members of Team GB, which is aiming to return from Brazil with between 48 and 79 medals. Farah won 10,000m gold on the same night as Greg Rutherford (right) was victorious in the long jump He admits that even with all his successes of the past, he is anxious about what the future holds.I get nervous of course. I will be nervous on the line, he added. It all just depends on that certain moment - where you are, if youre listening to certain music walking out, warming up. I dont know, you just get through it.Its the Olympics. That is every athletes dream and most people love to compete in the Olympics. Most people will be there to support us.
