Fear for Conor McGregor’s safety could lead to an early fight stoppage
A recent New York Time article voiced the concerns of some longtime ringside physicians that fear Conor McGregor’s health could be in serious jeopardy against Floyd Mayweather. The article cited the recent death of MMA fighter Tim Hague, who sustained fatal injuries when he attempted to transition to boxing, and had similar concerns if the McGregor fight continues too long. It also calls into question if the fight should have been sanctioned in the first place by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.
Colin thinks that those involved with the fight, including veteran boxing referee Richard Steele will be aware of the article, and it could lead to the fight being called early out of precaution.
The Cavs’ haul in the Kyrie Irving trade isn’t enough to convince LeBron to stay
Colin thinks the Celtics won the Kyrie Irving trade because they got the star, and the team that gets the star always wins the NBA trade, not the team that gets “stuff” like the Cavs. Many in the sports media saw it differently, and thought Cleveland got the better end of the deal.
Colin doesn’t think the pieces Cleveland received in return for Irving will be enough to keep LeBron around, and that when it comes time for LeBron to make decision about where to play in 2018, the Lakers situation will be far more appealing to James.
The Cavs will have to parlay some of the Celtics assets into a star by the trade deadline to have a shot at convincing him to stay. If not, he’s gone.
