A month ago 39-year old Drew Brees, who’s been playing like he’s 29, set the record for most passing yards of All-time, passing both Brett Favre and Payton Manning. Saints Michael Thomas has recorded 70 recoveries, and Kamara has recorded 728 rushing yards, along with over 800 receiving yards., add in the 30-year old Dez Bryant who had 69 recoveries last season, 838 yards, and 6 touchdowns to a Saints team that averages the second most points per game in the league at 34.9 points per game, a record of 7-1, the Saints could have possibly made a move that will play out into the Superbowl this season.

After playing eight seasons in Dallas, the 3-time pro bowler Dez Bryant was cut from the team on April 13, 2018, leaving the wide receiver in limbo on a playing destination. Little did most NFL fans know that Dez Bryant has been on the Saints radar not long after his release.
Drew Brees definitely thought about the possibility of adding Dez Bryant. ” We talked last season about it. I remember thinking it would definitely help us to add a player like him.” Brees told Espn reporters.

“Dez has been a really good player in this league for a long time and there’s certainly a skillset he has that is going to be beneficial,” Brees said. “I look forward to working with him. I look forward to building a rapport with him. I look forward to getting him involved in this offense and just become a complement to all the guys that we already have.”

With the move, the Saints add depth to their wide receiving core, as the team now has both Dez Bryant and Michael Thomas in their receiving core. The only issue now is whether Dez Bryant would cope with the fact that he won’t be the main option, as he’ll be a secondary option to Michael Thomas, which in past years has been an issue for Bryant.

 
On things for sure, Bryant is definitely in a better winning situation than he was with the Dallas Cowboys.

The Dallas Mavericks showed their support for the brave troops that help keep America safe. On Wednesday night, the Mavericks hosted their annual Seats for Soldiers event– an event that has taken place since 2004. The team flew in more than 100 injured soldiers for the Mav’s game against Utah Jazz.

“Our annual Seats for Soldiers night is a reminder that we don’t get to enjoy the game we love without the incredible sacrifices our soldiers make,” owner Mark Cuban said.

The courtside seats were donated by season-ticket holders, and are valued at more than $350,000. According to TMZ Sports, soldiers also received a four course meal, that came complete with a steak dinner and a seven-layer cake served for dessert. And as if that wasn’t good enough…there was more.

The Mav’s offered free tickets to the game to over 1,000 veterans.

Seattle Supersonics Could Make A Return To NBA

Philadelphia, PA — It’s been over a decade since NBA fans of Seattle had the opportunity to attend a Seattle Supersonics game. Those old Sonic teams that was coached by Lenny Wilkins, which culminated in an NBA Championship back in 1979, the Seattle Supersonic teams that was led by Gary Payton “The Glove” and his tenacious defense, along with thunderous , crafty, power dunks of “The Rain Man Shawn Kemp”; the 1996 NBA Western Conference Champions Coached by George Karl, who was one of 9 coaches to record 1,000 wins as a head coach, was sold in 2001 for $350 million dollars.

The Sonics along with the WNBA’s Seattle Storm was sold to the Professional Basketball Club L.L.C. However, there are sources out there that indicate the move for NHL’s expansion to have an NHL team in Seattle by 2020 could possibly influence the NBA Commissioner Adam Silver to bring the team back to the NBA, if the expansion proves the fan support is high. In an interview conducted by Portland TrailBlazers C.J. McCollum, with “The Players Tribune” Adam Silver hinted that a return of the Seattle Supersonics back to the NBA could be possible. ” I think it’s just a matter of time before we start thinking of expansion of a team in Seattle.  Seattle will definitely be on our list when we decide to expand.”Since the team has left many former Sonic fans have been heartbroken, and have salivated at the slight possibility that the team could return to the city of Seattle.

In 2015, according to a story written by SB Nation the Seattle Seahawks fans were given the nickname the “6th Man”. This was due to their tremendous home-field advantage.
Up until that point, the Seahawks had a home-record of 26-2 within three seasons, proving their fans truly support the team, and the team definitely feeds off of that. Former Seattle Supersonic, and current NBA Champion Kevin Durant gave his opinion on a team returning back to Seattle, in an article written by Andrew Joseph of USA Today,

“For sure. Most definitely. It’s a basketball city. It’s a sports town. … They have a good representation of basketball in the NBA from Seattle-born players, Washington state-born players. And I feel like that whole brand deserves an NBA team. Just like the Golden State Warriors deserve a team or the Los Angeles Lakers deserve a team, Seattle is that same way. [A team] has that same type of impact in the community. So [we have] a lot of time in life before this whole thing is over, and I’m sure we’ll see a team before it’s time.”, said Durant.

With the Seattle Supersonics rich history, respect around the league and from their fans, it does seem like bringing the team back would be a great decision not just fan-wise, but financially for the NBA.
