The NBA Playoffs Return with Players Working On and Off the Court for Justice

After the NBA Playoffs historically came to a pause last Wednesday with Players refusing to Play as yet another Black man, JACOB BLAKE, was shot unjustly in the back by the Police, LEBRON, CP3, NBA Players reached out to BARACK OBAMA for advice.

OBAMA advised Players to play and maximize this opportunity to get their desired action items. Play resumed on Saturday under Commitments from the NBA & NBPA.

Pictured above is DENVER NUGGETS’ JAMAL MURRAY’S shoes. He says even though they are gone, they help him to find strength and to keep fight in this world.

The entire UTAH JAZZ team has now been registered to vote. Their DONOVAN MITCHELL has pledged $45k to the education of Jacob Blake’s children, which has been matched.
Countless efforts have been made by these NBA Players on and off the court. I applaud them and stand with them.

LUKA DON made his series Debut at just 21yrs before being eliminated and how he is already targeted by players.

We have a Game 7! Who you got? Murray or Mitchell? NUGGETS or JAZZ?

CELTICS are up 1 on the RAPTORS! KEMBA!

Are you ready for LAKERS vs CLIPPERS?! Stay tuned! 🏀

Plays of Last Night in the NBA Playoffs on what would have been Kobe’s 42nd Birthday!

Kobe couldn’t have asked for a better Birthday. The Lakers won Saturday night to ring it in and the future of the NBA, all under 25yrs were ballin’! Two 50-point games and a 40-point triple double! #ripmamba

Luka Dončić (21 years old), who I consider to be the future of the NBA, scored 43 points and a triple double, leading the Mavs to level the series 2-2 versus the LA Clippers with a hell of a Buzzer-Beater! If you missed it or would just love to see it again, watch here:

Check out Donovan Mitchell (23 yrs) in action too here:

Who are your top 3 players under 25 in the Playoffs right now in order?!… Suga’s got:
1. Luka Dončić (21 yrs)
2. Donovan Mitchell (23 yrs)
3. Jayson Tatum (22 yrs)
Look out for BOL BOL (20 yrs) in a year or 2!

The NBA PLAYOFFS begin TODAY! Who you got?!

The NBA Playoffs begin today and Suga’s got her picks.

See Today’s and Tomorrow’s Schedules here:

Suga actually calls LeBron and the LAKERS to WIN it all with the CLIPPERS as their biggest contenders.
So the LAKERS, ROCKETS, NUGGETS and CLIPPERS should come out of the 1st round. As usual, the WEST is stacked with great teams. The matchups should be very competitive.

The BUCKS and RAPTORS should come out of the 1st round for the EAST, with a toss up between the PACERS and HEAT and the CELTICS vs 76ers.

Let’s see how they all handle the NBA Playoffs from one place in Orlando Florida, the NBA Bubble with no ‘visitors’. It will be like the Survivor.

Stay tuned and Follow @sugalifestyle on Instagram and Facebook, as Instagram stories with updates will be posted and shared to Facebook! I love this game! 🏀

Congratulations to the Champions of the Weekend!

SUPER BOWL LIV CHAMPIONS – KANSAS CITY CHIEFS

They say defense wins Championships, but last night the 49ers did all that they could do, then towards the end lacked the offense they needed and a star QB to get them the points for that Super Bowl win.

Both teams had interceptions and we didn’t see a lot of Mahomes Magic, but the Chiefs came together as a team to win this Super bowl led by their Head Coach, Andy Reid. Reid now ranks 6th in all-time NFL head coaching wins at 222. He was previously the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles (1999 – 2012).

AUSTRALIAN OPEN WOMEN’S CHAMPION – SOFIA KENIN

20200203_050509

21-year old Sofia Kenin came from a set down to 2-time Champion, Garbine Muguruza to win her 1st Grand Slam and the Australian Open on Saturday. She never gave up and played the best tennis of her life. With more areas to improve in her game, I look forward to seeing rivalries with her and other young, fiery, competitive players such as Bianca Andreescu (injured left knee who did not compete) and Coco Gauff in the future.

Congrats Sofia! Dreams do come true.

AUSTRALIAN OPEN MEN’S CHAMPION – NOVAK DJOKOVIC

For the men, the top 3 continue to reign. Novak Djokovic (2) remains the Australian Open King, being 8-0 at Australian Open finals, now within 2 Grand Slams to equal Raphael Nadal and 3 to match the GOAT, Roger Federer. I am sure they will continue to battle it out this year with the French Open next!

Novak showed the true meaning of Champion when he came back to win from 2 sets down to Dominic Thiem, 6-4, 4-6, 2-6, 6-3, 6-4! Young, Dominic Thiem (5) was in top form and took out World no. 1 Nadal in an epic 5-setter in the Quarters and Zverev (7) in the Semis, who we may see more of in the near future. His legs started to go with more errors in the 5th versus Djokovic, while Djokovic was revamped to play spectacular tennis. Great match.

Congrats Novak Djokovic! Kobe Bryant, his late friend and our basketball legend whose initials and #24 he wore on his warm up suit would have been proud. #RIPKobe #BlackMambaForever

Over 6 million dollars was raised to fight the Australian fires from the Open as players made various pledges and there were other contributions. Let us pray that they are able to restore their lands, animals and normal way of living soon.
