Chad Niemi is a sports enthusiast and entrepreneur. In the following article, Chad Niemi looks at the latest updates in the world of professional sports.
This is the perfect time to catch up on the happenings in the professional sports arena. We’ve just witnessed a fantastic NFL season, we’re approaching the end of basketball season, and the baseball season is rapidly approaching. Regardless of what sport you love, there’s plenty to dive into, and below, Chad Niemi takes a look at some of the latest updates across the various leagues.
After a tense final between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Kansas City Chiefs, Patrick Mahomes and his brilliant team emerged victorious. But the Super Bowl result is not the only sports report that has dominated headlines. The 2 weeks that have passed since the game have provided some intriguing league updates.
Matt Nagy Gets Promoted
Chad Niemi reports that after Eric Bieneimy left Kansas City following 10 intense seasons, Matt Nagy was announced as the team’s new offensive coordinator. Since 2018 when Bieniemy took over, the Chiefs became the highest-scoring team per game (30.1), so the stakes are high.
Nagy was fired from his post with the Chicago Bears and after joined the Chiefs as quarterbacks coach.
New Netflix Series Following Three Top Quarterbacks
Chad Niemi reports that Netflix has announced that it’s producing a new docu-series that follows behind the scenes of the NFL season from the perspectives of three top quarterbacks.
Patrick Mahomes, Kirk Cousins, and Marcus Mariota will take the spotlight and fans will dive into the lives of their favorite football stars on and off the pitch.
However, many have already slandered the show for their choice of quarterbacks. While Patrick Mahomes seems an obvious choice, Chad Niemi reports that fans have questioned why the show will center around Kick Cousins and Marcus Mariota instead of (arguably) bigger names like Jalen Hurts or Josh Allen.
LeBron James Breaks All-Time Record
With only 10.9 seconds left in the third quarter, LeBron James launched a fadeaway jumper and broke Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s points record.
This shot scored his 38,388th career point and he now sits at the top of the NBA’s all-time scoring list.
Klaus Thompson Scores 12 Three-Pointers
Recently, the Golden State Warriors beat the Houston Rockets 116-101 in San Francisco. Although the team put on a brilliant show, Klaus Thompson stole the show by scoring 12 three-pointers in one game states Chad Niemi.
This is the second time he’s scored this highly, making him the first player in NBA history to score 12 or more three-pointers in multiple games within one season.
The Sacramento Kings Make History
Chad Niemi reports that the Los Angeles Clippers were defeated by the Sacramento Kings 176-175 in a tense and dramatic game, which became the second-highest-scoring game in basketball history.
The Clippers were in the lead 147-136 with only 3 minutes left, but the Kings soon scored 10 points and Malik Monk’s three-pointer with only 2.1 seconds left, sent the match into extra time. This was one of the most suspenseful games in NBA history and few matches end with such a tight score.
Chad Niemi says that ahead of the start of the next F1 season, the new vehicles have been put through their paces in a weekend of testing in Bahrain.
The results from the weekend showed how competitive the season ahead might be. With strong performances from Red Bull and Mercedes, as well as outsiders Alpha Romeo and Aston Martin.
Premier League Soccer
Barcelona Out of Europa League
Chad Niemi reports that after a tight first-leg encounter at the Nou Camp resulting in a 2-2 draw, anticipation was high ahead of last Thursday’s second leg at Old Trafford.
Manchester United conceded early following a penalty converted by Robert Lewandowski. But after a cagey first half, Manchester United came out on top with goals from Fred and Anthony.
As a result, Barcelona is now eliminated from European competition for the rest of the season.
Real Madrid Dominate Liverpool 5-2
After gaining the upper hand through 2 early goals, Liverpool looked positive. But after 5 unanswered goals from the Spanish opposition, Liverpool fans were left defeated and now feel unoptimistic about the second leg that rapidly approaches.
Chad Niemi says that if the end of the NFL season has left a sports-shaped hole in your life, the NBA, Formula 1, and soccer scenes are getting more and more exciting as each week passes, so be sure to stay tuned.
