Giancarlo Stanton has signed the hugest contract in the history of baseball: 13 years and $325 million. The guy is only 25 years old and could easily make anyone his age really go through a "what the hell am I doing with my life" type of moment.
Marlins GM Dan Jennings and the team's hierarchy awarded slugger Giancarlo Stanton with the largest contract in MLB history, in both length (13 years) and total amount ($325 million). The deal was also the largest in North American sports history. But, it absolutely had to be done.
When the people we entrust with our health and wellbeing use the term "retarded," they grant legitimacy to a word that has been deemed offensive by the culture at large. They cause harm to the very people they have pledged to heal.
Since returning to Cleveland, LeBron James has shifted some of the landscape of the NBA. While the move to the Cavaliers created another contender in the Eastern Conference, the move hasn't only made an impact on the court.

The NBA season just got underway. LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers haven't gotten off to the best start. They lost to the Blazers the other night and Lebron James failed to score in the second half.

What ultimately happens with Mallorca's entrepreneurial community may or may not resemble what's been done in Cleveland. It's for the Mallorcans to decide what's best for them. With over 35,000 people from 183 countries having registered for my MOOC, I know similar discussions are taking place in other parts of the world.
LinkedIn started as a wonderful tool to professionally develop with avenues such as social selling, recruiting and B2B advertising, but now it is in a dark place. Kind of like that place the Cleveland Cavaliers went after LeBron James left. This is our fault a lot more than LinkedIn's.

The NBA season is just about a week away, so this is an exciting time for all NBA fans to come up with their own hypotheses about what'll take place this season.
My friend Irene has told me for years that she has a magical mysterious pendulum that picks football games. I laughed at her stupidity forever UNTIL I came face to face with the magical pendulum the entire month of September.
Seattle blew a 17-3 fourth quarter lead and were 99.9 percent likely to win after Steven Hauschka kicked a 28-yard field goal to give the Hawks a 20-12 lead with 1:04 left to play.
That shiny first date newness of Week 1 has worn off and it's time to settle in for the long grind of the season. But here's the thing, it's still too early to really know what kind of talent these teams have.
It may have been the understatement of the year when I told some colleagues that LeBron James' return to the Cleveland Cavaliers would have a positive impact on ticket sales.
El jugador de la NBA y de la selección de Puerto Rico mantiene el optimismo a pesar de los malos resultados del equipo: "No empezamos como queríamos, pero ayer jugamos mejor.
