David Sergio Trezeguet (French pronunciation: born 15 October 1977 in Rouen) is a French-Argentine football striker, currently playing for Juventus of the Italian Serie A and formerly for the French national team. Trezeguet and Thierry Henry of FC Barcelona are good friends. Their friendship started while they were both playing for AS Monaco. In an interview, David stated that Thierry was like a big brother to him when they were teammates. David and his wife Béatrice have two children, Aaron (born on 18 May 2000) and Noraan (born on 28 May 2008).

At club level, Trezeguet has played for Club Atlético Platense in Argentina (1994), AS Monaco FC in France (1995-2000), and Juventus in Italy (since 2000). On 16 September 2006, before Juventus' league match against Vicenza, Trezeguet was awarded a commemorative plate in recognition of his 125 career goals. After the match, his tally came to 128 goals making him the highest scoring foreigner in Juventus history. He is currently the fifth highest scorer for Juventus, with 161 goals as of 1 March 2008, six goals behind Omar Sivori. In 1997, Trezeguet scored the fastest goal ever in terms of velocity in UEFA Champions League history in a quarter-final match against Manchester United. The shot that resulted in a goal was clocked at 97.76 mp/h (157.33 km/h). He also scored the 3000th goal in UEFA Champions League history by netting against Olympiacos in 2004. In the 2003 UEFA Champions League Final, Trezeguet was one of the three Juventus players to have their penalty saved by A.C. Milan keeper Dida in penalties, who appeared to come off his line on each occasion.

Trezeguet caused controversy in Juventus' final match of the 2006–07 season against Spezia by making a gesture towards the club president, making a number 15 with his fingers – the number of goals he scored throughout the Serie B season – and then a gesture which, in Italian, means “I’m out of here.”[citation needed] However, Juventus announced on 25 June 2007, that Trezeguet had renewed his contract until 2011. During the 2007–08 season, Trezeguet scored twenty goals in the league, second only to teammate Alessandro Del Piero for Serie A scoring honors.

Andrei Sergeyevich Arshavin was born in St. Petersburg, then called Leningrad, on 29 May 1981. He was born to a typical Russian working class family and his father Sergey was a gifted amateur footballer.

He came through an accident that could have potentially killed him when he was hit by a car as a child. His upbringing was made a lot harder when his parents divorced when he was aged 10, with Andrei having to sleep on the floor of a cramped flat with his mother Tatiana. It was his father who persuaded him to pursue a career in football after the profession did not work for him. Arshavin began playing football at an early age and at age seven he was enrolled in the Smena football academy of FC Zenit St. Petersburg. As a schoolboy before solely focusing on football, he was a promising draughts player. Arshavin's father died of heart failure at the age of 40.

Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro, OIH (Portuguese pronunciation: born 5 February 1985) is a Portuguese footballer who plays as a winger for English Premier League club Manchester United and as captain for the Portuguese national team. In June 2009, Manchester United accepted an £80 million (€94m, US$132m) bid for Ronaldo from Real Madrid, which would make Ronaldo the most expensive player in football history.

Ronaldo began his career as a youth player at CD Nacional and his successes with the team led to a move to Sporting Clube de Portugal two seasons afterwards. Ronaldo's precocious talent caught the attention of Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson and he signed the 18-year-old for £12.24 million in 2003. The following season, Ronaldo won his first club honour, the FA Cup, and reached the UEFA Euro 2004 final with Portugal, in which he scored his first international goal.

In 2008, Ronaldo won his first UEFA Champions League title, and was named the final's man of the match. He was named the FIFPro World Player of the Year and the FIFA World Player of the Year, in addition to becoming Manchester United's first Ballon d'Or winner in 40 years.

Three-time Ballon d'Or winner Johan Cruyff said in an interview on 2 April 2008, "Ronaldo is better than George Best and Denis Law, who were two brilliant and great players in the history of United.

NBA Sport Trends
The National Basketball Association (NBA) is North America's professional men's basketball league, composed of thirty teams: twenty-nine in the United States and one in Canada. It is an active member of USA Basketball (USAB),[1] which is recognized by the International Basketball Federation as the National Governing Body (NGB) for basketball in the United States. The NBA is one of the four major North American professional sports leagues, which include Major League Baseball (MLB), the National Football League (NFL), and the National Hockey League (NHL).

The league was founded in New York City on June 6, 1946 as the Basketball Association of America (BAA). The league adopted the name National Basketball Association in 1949 after merging with the rival National Basketball League (NBL). The league's several international as well as individual team offices are directed out of its head offices located in the Olympic Tower at 645 Fifth Avenue in New York City. NBA Entertainment and NBA TV studios are directed out of offices located in Secaucus, New Jersey.

The NBA originated in 1946 with 11 teams, and through a sequence of team expansions, reductions, and relocations currently consists of 30 teams. The United States is home to 29 teams and one is located in Canada. The Boston Celtics have won the most championships, including the most recent, with 17 NBA Finals wins. The next most successful franchise is the Los Angeles Lakers, who have 14 overall championships (9 in Los Angeles, 5 in Minneapolis). Following the Lakers are the Chicago Bulls with six championships, all of them over an 8-year span during the 1990s, and the San Antonio Spurs with four championships, all since 1999. The current league organization divides thirty teams into two conferences of three divisions with five teams each. The current divisional alignment was introduced in the 2004–05 season. The NBA has sporadically participated in international club competitions. From 1987-1999 the NBA champion played against the continental champions of the Fédération Internationale de Basketball (FIBA) in the McDonald's Championship. This tournament was won by the NBA invitee every year it was held. FIBA is organizing a new World Club Championship to begin in 2010, and currently plans to invite the NBA champions starting in 2011.
