Week of April 21, 2014

Each week I will write about the world of sports:

*There is no doubt that Kevin Durant is the MVP of the NBA this season. He has been so special for the Thunder all year long.

*I think this Yankee team, minus the soap opera with AROD, will be strong. The starting pitching is very tough!

*Missouri needs a replacement for Frank Haith, who left for Tulsa. If I were Mizzou, I would give a buzz to former UCLA coach Ben Howland. Look at his total resume! 

*John Calipari hit a grand slam, getting ace recruiter Barry Rohrssen to step in for Orlando Antigua. Pitt has been good to the Cats! 

*Bernard Hopkins is something special. He won another world championship in boxing, doing it at age 49..
