Larry Fitzgerald Becomes 5th All Time In Receiving Yards

Published

on

Today was a great day for Larry Fitzgerald, the Cardinals all-time leader in receiving yards signed a 1 year extension to stay in Arizona.  His salary would be $11 million, according to Arizona Sports 98.7.  Fitz followed it up by passing Tony Gonzalez as 5th in all-time receiving yards.

Larry took the fifth place on the NFL’s all-time receiving yards list with a 20-yard touchdown catch with 7 minutes, 27 seconds left in the second quarter Sunday against the Houston Texans at NRG Stadium.

Fitzgerald needs 141 catches to surpass former tight end Tony Gonzalez for second all-time in NFL history behind Jerry Rice, a mark he should easily attain if he plays next season.

Fitzgerald also will be third all-time in receiving yards by the end of the season – he needs only 227 more to pass Randy Moss – and another season would likely allow him to move into second place. Fitzgerald is 869 yards shy of Terrell Owens for second.

A return likely would make Fitzgerald, who just surpassed the 15,000-yard mark last week against the Seahawks, only the second player ever to surpass 16,000 receiving yards. Jerry Rice has 1,549 receptions and 22,895 yards to lead both all-time categories. At the moment, Fitzgerald is at 1,185 and 15,066.

The 10-time Pro Bowler, who should receive his 11th nod this season, also has a chance to climb to second place in a couple of major NFL all-time receiving categories by playing another season.

“He’s been the face of this organization for so long,” Arizona coach Arians said. “What he’s done on the field and off the field, you’d hate to see those type of guys retire.”

Fitzgerald needs 141 catches to surpass former tight end Tony Gonzalez for second all-time in NFL history behind Jerry Rice, a mark he should easily attain if he plays next season.

Jason Tatum spent most of the summer putting in the work. It showed on opening night when he led the Celtics to 105-87 win over the 76ers.

The Celtics took the floor with Kyrie Irving and Gordan Hayward returning to the starting line up. But it was the second-year scoring machine Jayson Tatum who stole the show with a team-high 23 points. Hayward scored 10 points on 4-of-12 shooting, Marcus Morris had 16 points, and Terry Rozier added 11 points off the bench.

Kyrie Irving struggled with on 7 points on 2-of-14 shooting. Irving is still recovering from his knee surgery and showed on the court.

Jaylen Brown already has the dunk of the year. With a little under seven minutes left in the 4th quarter, Brown dunked on Joel Embiid with no mercy.

Ben Simmons dropped 19 points, 15 rebounds, eight assists and Joel Embiid 23 points, 10 rebounds led the way for the Sixers.

Rumor: Kawhi Leonard And Jimmy Butler Don’t Want To Join Lebron

Published

on

Kawhi Leonard and Jimmy Butler will both be the top NBA free agents in the summer of 2019.

Both players have been linked to possible joining Lebron James and the Lakers in 2019. Now according to The Ringers Kevin O’Connor both players are not interested in wearing the Purple and Gold.

“There are whispers around the league that neither Jimmy Butler nor Kawhi Leonard wants to play with LeBron, and sources I’ve talked to would be shocked if Klay Thompson left Golden State,” wrote Conner.

Leonard has expressed the possibility of him resigning with the Raptors. Before he was traded to the Raptors, Leonard was rumored to want to join one of the LA teams.

“I want to play here,” Leonard said. “I came in with an open mind. I want to do great things … focus on this year. If you’re looking toward the future, you’re going to trip over the present.”

Butler on the other hand clear wants out of Minnesota. He wants to sign with a team that has enough cap space to sign another big named free agent.

If the Lakers can not add Butler or Leonard is would be a setback for the Lakers. The team has the cap space to add one more big named free agent to join James. Magic Johnson wanted to sign Paul George in the offseason but he decided to re-sign with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Klay Thompson: We Want To Three Peat

Published

on

The Golden State Warriors are spending their last year in Oakland before moving to San Franciso.

The Dubs have won 3 of the last 4 championships. Warriors guard Klay Thompson wants the Warriors to win a three peat before the team leaves the Bay.

“We want to do it for the fans of Oakland. Been so loyal to us for 40-plus years, whatever it’s been since they’ve been in Oracle. So that definitely helps with this season.” said Thompson “It’s leaving a big legacy behind in Oakland because people might not get to see us as much in San Francisco. And just enjoying this every night.”

“We have such a special group. We play in front of such amazing fans. And every game is so much fun because it’s such an amazing atmosphere. It’s not like we’re playing in front of six or seven thousand people a night. It’s sold out. It doesn’t matter who we play, preseason, Finals. It’s easy to come to work when you’ve got a fan base like we have.”

History also figures to be a motivating factor since the 2000-02 Los Angeles Lakers with Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant was the only team to accomplish the feat since Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls did so twice in the 1990s.
