Swimmer #MichaelPhelps is getting older, and this past week made a statement saying that this summers upcoming #Olympics might be his 3rd and last one. While #Phelps is still young, he is getting to be past his prime for his sport. How many gold medals, if any can he bring back for the US this summer?

Wrong move at the wrong time: #BostonCeltics foward #KevinGarnett made a huge mistake in the final seconds of the neck to neck matchup between the Celtics and the #Philadelphia76ers. With only seconds left on the clock in the 4th quarter, coach #DocRivers' classic drawn up play was interupted by a moving screen set by KG. Since Boston was over the limit, Philly shot their two free throws which put them up by 5 and sealed the deal. The series between the two is now tied at 1-1.

#Duke head coach #CoachK said that after this summers #Olympics he would stop coaching Team #USA who have a plethora of gold medals under the leadership of Coach K! He also said that he would remain coaching Duke. Does this move maybe mean his coaching career could be coming to an end?

Tune into TNT tonight at 9:30 pm to catch the second round of the #NBA playoffs featuring the #LosAngeles #Lakers and #OKCThunder representing the western conference. This matchup will be a classic. Don't miss out!

#MiamiHeat all star #ChrisBosh is out indefinitely with an abdominal strain and could miss the rest of the #IndianaPacers vs Miami Heat series.

The War of Words happened today in sports. #LosAngeles #Lakers #MettaWorldPeace announced he has no intention of patching things up with #OklahomaCityThunder sixth man of the year #JamesHarden after hitting him with a brutal elbow to the head which eventually resulted in a concussion earlier this month. "I don't shake substitutes' hands" is what World Peace had to say on the matter. In the #NFL, #NewYork #Giants defensive end #OsiUmenyiora tweeted "Happy Mothers Day Lesean Mccoy! Enjoy your special day!!" The two have had tension for months now but the conflict seems to have intensified with #Eagles star RB replying "Lol let the beef begin." Is trash talking part of sports or should these athletes let their performances do the talking?

If #FloydMayweather and #MannyPaquiao were to face of in the most talked about boxing match in recent time, who would win?

Now thats what you call a playoff game! The #MiamiHeat vs #IndianaPacers game was a competitive and close game that went down to the wire. In the end #DwyaneWade and #LeBronJames led their team to victory and have taken a 1-0 lead in the #NBAPlayoffs.

#ClevelandCavaliers point guard #Kyrie #Irving has won the #NBA rookie of the year award. Was he rightly choosen? Or did someone else deserve the award?

The first round of the #NBA playoffs is officially over. The #LosAngeles #Clippers have just defeated the #MemphisGrizzlies and have advanced to the second round to face the #SanAntonio #Spurs.

The 2011-2012 #PhiladelphiaEagles squad was supposed to be an elite #NFL playoff team, but things didnt turn out the way they wanted. This 2012-2013 NFL season #MichaelVick, #LeseanMcCoy and the rest of the team look to silence the haters and make a run in the playoffs. Do you think the team will get their act together and make some noise in the league?

What a day for basketball! At 1PM, big man #ZachRandolph and the resurgent #MemphisGrizzlies look to close out #BlakeGriffin and the reeling #LosAngeles #Clippers in a decisive game 7. With the Grizz on their home court, they have a good chance at rallying back from a 3-1 series deficit and advancing towards the next round. Can #ChrisPaul help the Clippers avoid elimination or will their season end today? Then, at 3:30, three time #MVP #LeBron #James and company take on the #IndianaPacers in the first game of their series. This battle between Eastern conference #2 and #3 seeds should be interesting. Do the Heat have what it takes to move on to the next round or do the Pacers pull off the upset and end LeBron's hunt for a ring? #NBAPlayoffs
