Melo a Knick, Gasol to Bulls, Germany wins World Cup

Melo will be staying in New York, calling himself a “Knick at heart” while Pau Gasol announced on twitter that he was headed to the windy city…Chicago Bulls.  Melo signed a 5 year/122+ million dollar deal it was confirmed this morning.  King James signed a 2 year/42 million dollar deal with the Cavs and has an option to become a free agent next summer.  His agent says he is fully committed to staying in Cleveland! (?)  OK…no word on Kevin Love yet, the Heat appear to be in the lead for the services of Deng, but as one can see from just the past couple of days, this NBA free agency signing business is in a constant state of flux.  Unfortunate unlucky losers so far…LA Lakers.  Does not make me smile for sure!

World Cup action today…the Final…#allin or nothing!  Very powerful German team vs. L. Messi and Argentina..Messi calling this game the most important of his career.  Yes..I think maybe so.  Most are picking Germany as the favorite but I am pulling for Messi and Argentina.  Should get underway around 2:00 pm EST.  Yesterday, more heartbreak for the host country Brazil, as their beloved soccer team fell to the Netherlands in the battle for third place, 3-0.

Until later….

And it is Germany!!  2014 World Cup Champions!  “Super Mario” Goetze (the last sub in off the bench in extra time) with the winning goal!  A lot of opportunities for Argentina that were squandered.  Sad for Messi!  Wanted it for him but this German team has been so powerful!  Congrats on their 4th World Cup…first team to cross the Atlantic and play in the Americas and win the Cup…well done!!

P.S. Very cool to see LeBron and Kobe at the World Cup..nice to see superstars in one sport watching and supporting another!
