Brady and Patriots Chasing History

by Steve Simineri

AP || Steven Senne

Today in sports it’s not easy to achieve success and almost impossible to sustain it. Only a few special teams over the last decade or so have achieved "dynasty" status. In basketball the Lakers won three straight titles from 2000-2002, adding two more in 2009 and 2010. Meanwhile, the Spurs won four Larry O’Brien Trophies during a nine year stretch.

The LoHud Knicks Blog

Last year, future Hall-of-Famers Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan, Paul Pierce, and Dirk Nowitzki, who had accounted for all but two of the previous thirteen Larry O’Brien trophies, failed to add another Championship to their collection. It was the first time since the 1997-98 season that none of their respective teams reached the finals, and ABC couldn’t have scripted a more appealing showdown.

1-on-1s With Mets Players

by Amit Badlani

Prior to spring training, the outside expectations for the Mets were to win under 80 games by season's end. The team has played well over that thus far. Entering the All-Star break, the Mets are 46-40.

Daniel Murphy has a had a lot to do with that. Earlier in the season, his hot hitting carried the team. He had cooled off for most of June, but he carried a hot bat into the break.

Ike Davis couldn't hit his way out of a paper bag for the first two months of the season. He finally began to turn it around last month with 6 HR, 24 RBI, and a .264 batting average.

Brodeur Not Done Yet

by Steve Simineri

Roughly 3 months shy of his 40th birthday Martin Brodeur is still the man in between the pipes for the New Jersey Devils. Even though he doesn’t play 70 games anymore and shares some of the load with backup Johan Hedberg, he is still the man in New Jersey, almost 20 years later.

Slowly but surely the Yankees dynasty years has become a thing of the past. Once upon a time the Yankees won 4 Championships in 5 years and appeared in 6 World Series in 8 years between 1996 and 2003. They were the most revered team in sports and had a knack for getting it done in October.  But the Yankees have only one World Series banner in the last 11 years and those dynasty years seem like a distant memory.
