OJ Simpson in trouble again? Kevin Everett to walk again? Find out everything that happened in sports this week!

Sports News - OJ in Trouble Again

OJ Simpson can't seem to stay out of trouble. After being acquitted of a double-murder charge over a decade ago, Simpson has gotten himself in some more hot water this week. He has been arrested and charged with multiple felonies including armed robbery and kidnapping this week. Allegedly he and several other men stormed into a sports memorabilia collector's hotel room in Las Vegas and stole autographed memorabilia. Some of the items taken are believed to be items that once belonged to Simpson.

Sports News - Everett to Walk Again

Buffalo Bills tight end Kevin Everett suffered a very serious neck injury in the Bills' season opener on September 9. He got hurt while making a tackle against a Denver Broncos player. Everett was paralyzed from the neck down and it was feared that he may not walk ever again. Not long after that prediction, Everett started showing movements in his hands and feet. Doctors now believe he may have a full recovery and think he may even start walking again in the next few weeks.

Sports News - Milwaukee Matches Bell

Wow, it seems as if no NBA player wants to play in Milwaukee these days. First draft pick, Yi Jianlian, refused to play with the Bucks - although he ended up signing with the team. Charlie Bell, a restricted free agent, asked the Bucks not to match Miami's contract offer of 5-years, $18 million. Milwaukee did not accommodate Bell's request, as they matched Miami's offer and kept Bell in Wisconsin.

Sports News - Bonds Calls Out Designer

This week, Barry Bonds called fashion designer Marc Ecko an idiot. Why you might ask? Ecko purchased the famous 756 home run ball and is hosting an online poll to decide the fate of the ball. The options are shoot it into space or donate it to the Hall of Fame. Bonds expressed that no matter what happens to the ball the record stands and questioned why Ecko would pay that much for the ball if he was just going do something stupid with it.
