…First of all, O.M.G. Second of all, this is what makes Lebron the best player in the world. Finally, I am sorry Tiago Splitter that this happened to you. If you watch the replay over and over again, the timing is what makes this block so amazing. Working with Hakeem Olajuwon in the off season has really paid off for #6 on both ends of the floor. Lebron is a six foot eight monster and plays so aggressive that he can make big plays occur at any moment. Expect more of this throughout the NBA Finals…

Tim Tebow agrees to stay in the AFC East and joins the Patriots

20130607-tebow-samsonite-350This picture on the left is what everyone will be seeing at New England’s minicamp tomorrow morning.

Tim Tebow, the three year player out of Florida, has played two seasons with the Denver Broncos and last season with the New York Jets.  “Tebow Time” prospered in Denver 2011 leading his team to the playoffs and pulling off a miraculous overtime win over Pittsburgh but in New York, Tebow’s time was over once he arrived at Jets camp.

But the 25 year old still expects to play at the quarterback position and will compete with Ryan Mallett in training camp for the spot at backup quarterback behind Tom Brady, the star of the franchise.

While this may seem like a crazy move, it is actually the best move for Tebow moving forward. Tim will reunite with Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, who was the Broncos‘ head coach when Denver traded into the first round to draft the Heisman Trophy winner in 2010.

So Tim Tebow could be used at different positions on the New England roster and could even line up at tight end now that Rob Gronkowski will be sidelined for a period of time due to his recent forearm and back injuries.

Bill Belichick values versatility in his players, having used wide receivers Troy BrownJulian Edelman and Matthew Slater at defensive back when injuries hit that position.

While the circus may be headed to New England in 2013, the media monstrosity may be minimized by Belichick, who keeps a tight lid on players’ interactions with reporters.

In the end, Tebow has a new life but that life could change in one week or one year. This journey will be interesting to follow and I am excited to see how it pans out. He could be one of the best role players in the game or he could ride the bench all year.

Start that clock again because “Tebow Time” is now ticking in Foxborough.
