Sports Central!

So what do you think about Kevin Durant going to the Warriors? I think its pretty neat although I do worry too much talent is going to the top teams and the bottom teams are watered down quite a bit!

The Dallas Mavericks are putting together their only little dynasty by adding Andrew Bogut, Harrison Barnes, and Curry. That's Seth Curry! With Dirk Norwitzki they could move up to challenge.

The Chicago Cubs are slated to join the 1963 Cardinals as only teams in MLB history to start all 4 infielders in All-Star Gamr.

Eric Hosmer will be first Royals' first baseman to start the All-Star Game since John Mayberry in 1973.

Pay Gasol is going to the Spurs.

Nebraska's best recruits that they have a pretty good chance of getting are five star Darnay Holmes(CB), Foster Sarell (OT), and Joseph Lewis (WR). If we could get two of these its great!!
