Shout out to Corey Brewer for setting a career high for him, dropping 51 points in the T-Wolves 112-110 victory over the Rockets. Along with dropping 51, he also had 6 steals (Jordan, Iverson, and Rick Barry are the other to players to have 50+ points and 6+ steals). Brewer has been an average player in the league, averaging 10 points a game in his 6 year career, so this may come unexpected to some. Apparently, LeBron was shocked by the news because when asked about Corey Brewer, he said "wait, who? ". I hope LeBron wasn't serious and said that jokingly but if you don't know who Corey Brewer try to find some of his Florida Gators highlights. His career didn't pan out to what everyone was expecting, being the most complete player on that Gator squad that won back-to-back titles, but Corey Brewer was never a bum in my eyes.
This game also show's how bad the Rockets are defensively but we'll save that for another day. Congrats to Corey Brewer.
I really feel bad for this kid. One bad decision has change his life. Missouri has decided to dismiss Beckham from the team after he was accused of breaking into another students apartment and committing burglary. Even though no arrest has been made, the Tigers felt as though they was left with no choice. I don't think this is the end for Beckham, he is not the first player to go through this type of situation. Cam Newton was dismissed for Florida in 2008 and by 2010, he was a National Champion and #1 pick in the NFL Draft, so this is not the end for Beckham. Now the 6'6 225 high school phenom just has to work harder to get back to this level. He is only 20 and has 2 more years of eligibility left, someone will need him at their school.
After 2 rounds, Bubba Watson has captured the lead and the attention of the Masters. Bubba is first on the leaderboard (-7) thanks to a great day of golfing. He hit 5 straight birdies on the 12th, 13th, 14th, 15th, and 16th holes, to go -4 on the day. People are now saying that this is Bubba's Masters to lose, leading 2nd place Australian John Seden by 3 strokes.
We are seeing a new generation of golfers emerging because for the first time since 1994, we will not see Tiger Woods or Phil Mickelson apart of Masters weekend, which is odd. Phil miss the cut, going 5 over 149, ending his streak of 17 consecutive years apart of Masters weekend.
Luckily for the Masters and everyone broadcasting it, Bubba is compelling enough to draw in average fans. He is not like the average golfer though. He doesn't have a golfing background nor was he coached, and is pretty much a regular guy. Last year champion, Adam Scott sits 4 strokes behind Bubba and I'm sure he has a nice run in him. Should be a great weekend.
Thursday was National Sibling Day and what is a better to show your younger brother how much you love them by dropping them in a arena filled with people. I wouldn't be surprised if the next family dinner is a little chippy, Jeff is petty for this one.
