Drew Brees spends $264,000 on John Wooden jersey to display at Purdue

A few weeks ago an anonymous bidder spent $264,000 to buy a jersey worn by the legendary college basketball coach John Wooden when he played at Purdue in the 1930s. Now that anonymous bidder has come forward: Drew Brees.

Brees, the Saints quarterback who played his college football at Purdue, has announced that the jersey will go on permanent display on Purdue’s campus.

Via BleedingGreenNation.com, Brooks sounded off after practice on Tuesday.

It’s crazy that people haven’t known this, Brooks said. It’s been this way for like a decade. . . . Reggie Wayne did it. He retired. He went there [to the Patriots] for a training camp and retired. Sh-t is not fun there. I was under the same regime in Houston [with O’Brien]. I almost retired. Sh-t was miserable, every day. Every day.

I’ve been working ever since. I feel good. I don’t feel great. Obviously I’ve got a lot of catching up to do and get into some football shape.

The toe injury didn’t seem to be prohibitive to Marshall being able to play. He didn’t miss a single game in 2015 despite the injury and finished the year with 1,502 receiving yards an 14 touchdowns. That also included 100-yard games in five of the last six games the Jets played that season and seven touchdowns over that span as well.

But the Seahawks will hope that with the ankle injury behind him and a bothersome toe now cleaned up as well, Marshall will be able to provide a significant boost to their receiving corps. Marshall knows that he has to prove he can still get the job done at 34 years old as well.

I think the sentiment around the league is that I’m done, he said. And I get it, rightfully so. When you get on the other side of 30 (years old) and your production slips and you have a big injury, people just count you out. So it was an interesting process, a humbling process to say the least.

Here are a few important factors that may end up deciding this contest

Cleveland has confidence after completing a comeback in 2016, and knowing LeBron James still exists always helps. But this version of the Warriors provides a much different challenge, especially with Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant both healthy and playing at MVP levels.

So what happens in Game 3? Here are a few important factors that may end up deciding this contest as well as the series.

The biggest storyline for the second half (apart from whether the Cavs win) will be LeBron James’ bid to surpass Michael Jordan in all-time postseason scoring. With 20 points this game so far, James needs only eight points to surpass Jordan. He also seven rebounds and steals, and is well on his way to a triple-double.

Some stats from the half. Cleveland is shooting 59.5 percent from the field (25 of 42). Boston is 44.7 percent (21 of 47). LeBron James (20), Deron Williams (14) Kevin Love (12) and Kyrie Irving (11) all have double-digit scores Avery Bradley (19) and Jae Crowder (11) lead the Celtics in scoring.

The Cavs lead the Celtics 75-57, putting up a franchise record for most points scored in a half. If they had a mind to, they could likely hit 150. But it won’t get that bad, not if they keep dominating Boston.

The Cavs are currently shooting 8 of 17 from 3-point land, compared to the Celtics’ 4-of-12 shooting. Cleveland has 18 points off the bench compared to Boston’s 14. Perhaps Deron Williams has something to do with the Cavs’ success?
