All Star Home Run Derby & NBA Quick Dribbles feat. Dwight Howard: 7/10, Vol. 182, 1st Edition

And here I am to worship, here I am to bow down, here I am to say that you're my God. You're altogether lovely, altogether worthy, altogether wonderful to me!  Good morning and welcome back to your Spiritual Sports Segment on Rhema Gospel Radio better than when you it yesterday, I’m C.E.E.J.A.Y!  Let’s Get It Started!

Prince Fielder win his
2nd Home Run Derby
     As Major League Baseball took a break from their regular season, they kicked off their All Star break with the State Farm Home Run Derby to a thrilling crowd at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, MO and the night belonged to a Prince!  Prince Fielder joined baseball great Ken Griffey, Jr. as the only players to win multiple home run derbies as Fielder outlasted Jose Bautista in the final round 12-7.  As for the captain of the American League Home Run Derby Team and defending champion he blasted dud, after dud, after dud, after dud…you get the picture, as fans of the Kansas City Royals booed Robinson Cano repeatedly for primarily for not selecting Royals Billy Butler, who totaled 16 homeruns at the break and wasn’t not selected and fans repeatedly voiced their displeasure with Cano and teammate Curtis Granderson  tweeted after the event “that was the most interesting reaction to a home (run) derby I’ve ever seen, but the fans were excited which is all that counts.”
     For your NBA Quick Dribbles, as the Orlando Magic try to find and/or create ways to ship disgruntled All Star center Dwight Howard out of the City Beautiful, it may require four teams to pull off this complex deal as a tentative deal includes Howard going to the Brooklyn Nets along with Jason Richardson, Chris Duhon and Earl Clark in the proposed deal and the Magic would get Brook Lopez, Luke Walton, Damion James, Shelden Williams, Armon Johnson and three first-round picks, which will include two from the Nets and a lottery-protected first round from the LA Clippers. The Cleveland Cavaliers are also involved and would get Kris Humphries, Quentin Richardson, Sundiata Gaines and a first-round pick from the Nets and $3 million in cash and the Clippers would receive MarShon Brooks.  Now this just merely a framework of a deal and there are several moving parts that would need to fall into place prior to the deal being consummated. The New York Knicks will acquire unrestricted free agent center Marcus Camby in a sign-and-trade deal with the Houston Rockets, according to a source close to Camby and the Rockets receive guard Toney Douglas, center Jerome Jordan, forward Josh Harrellson and second-round picks in 2014 and 2015, according to a league source, sharpshooter Steve Novak has agreed to re-sign with the New York Knicks in a deal worth $15 million over four years, Miami Heat guard Dwayne Wade underwent surgery on his left knee Monday morning, and told ESPN's Rachel Nichols that the procedure went well, and finally, the Sacramento Kings have signed first-round pick Thomas Robinson to a rookie contract.
