Bringing the Heat to Miami since 2014, Miami Dolphins wide receiver and return specialist Jarvis Landry is one of the best in the NFL.

A star on the hardwood court since his high school days, Carmelo Anthony is breaking NBA records and expectations one game at a time. Leading the Syracuse Orange to their first ever National Championship as a true freshman, Anthony earned the honors of being the Tournament’s MVP and later a third overall pick in the 2003 NBA Draft by the Denver Nuggets. With the Nuggets Anthony found great success: he led his team to six consecutive playoffs and two Division titles and the team’s first Conference Finals appearance since the 1985 season. Relocation to the New York Knicks in 2011 would prove to be just as successful for Anthony; he has since set the Madison Square Garden and Knicks’ single-game scoring record.

NHL Final Four Outlook

While the outcome of postseason playoffs are never fully predictable, some critics are able to speculate what teams will be in the Conference playoffs or possibly who may end up playing for the Championship Cup. The National Hockey League does not fall under this “possible speculation” ability. With the best team of the season eliminated in the second round and the hockey dynasty of years past falling in the first, this year’s NHL Playoffs are perhaps one of the most interesting yet.

Tony La Russa Autograph Signings

A player, manager, executive and Chief Baseball Officer, Tony La Russa’s impact on the MLB is a widespread one. Playing for the Oakland A’s, Atlanta Braves and Chicago Cubs, La Russa hung up his cleats in 1977 after many seasons in the minors. His absence from MLB was short-lived, though, as he was named the manager of the Chicago White Sox in the 1979 season, leading his men to an AL West title before taking the A’s to three consecutive AL Championships victories and one World Series win in 1989. Named the St. Louis Cardinals manager in 1995, La Russa earned three NL Championships titles and both the 2006 and 2011 World Series Trophies. With 33 seasons under his belt, La Russa retired from his manager position in 2011 with 2,728 wins, the third most of any manger in MLB history. Named the Chief Baseball Officer for the Arizona Diamondbacks just months after his managerial retirement, La Russa has since been unanimously inducted into the Baseball hall of Fame and the St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame Museum.
