Cleveland’s deadline deals separated them from Boston in the East
The Cavs overhauled most of their roster with a slew of deadline deals in which they acquired George Hill, Rodney Hood in a three-team deal with the Kings and Jazz, and Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance, Jr. from the Lakers for malcontent Isaiah Thomas.
In their debut against Boston, a re-energized LeBron and his new squad manhandled the Kyrie Irving and the Celtics on Paul Pierce’s jersey retirement ceremony day, and Colin thinks the deadline roster reformation has ended any hope that Boston can win the East this season.
“Cleveland separated from Boston and Cleveland absolutely closed the gap on Golden State.”
The Patriots are fun to play for because constantly winning is fun
Eagles offensive lineman Lane Johnson called the Patriots a ‘fear based organization’ in a post Super Bowl interview and described the New England players as robotic. Johnson said he would rather win one Super Bowl with the personality driven Eagles than five with the stiff Patriots.
Colin thinks Johnson is off base because even though the Patriots are more buttoned up than Philly, the main goal in professional sports is to win, and no one has won more consistently than the NFL than the Patriots. Colin thinks it sounds like a blast.
“Football is fun when you’re winning. Nobody wins more and more consistently than Gronk, Brady, Belichick and the Patriots.”
