If LeBron leaves for L.A., he would be better off going to the Clippers over the Lakers
Following the Cavs Finals loss to the Warriors, the speculation immediately started regarding LeBron James future and if he could jettison the Cavs for the second time in search of greener pastures. Some have speculated one destination for James could be Los Angeles. When L.A. and James come up, most assume he would bolt for the Lakers, but Colin thinks the Clippers are the far better option.
If the Clippers added James to Chris Paul and DeAndre Jordan, and could entice Paul George to join, they would have a far better group than anything the Lakers could put together. And if James could manage to win a title with Clippers, having already brought a championship to Cleveland, it would only enhance his legacy. And LeBron is keenly aware of his legacy.
Ultimately, Colin thinks James will stay in Cleveland, but if he does leave again, he would be better off calling Jerry West than Magic Johnson.
Mayweather/McGregor will be a great pay day, but an awful fight
Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor have offically confirmed their highly anticipated boxing match that has been rumored for the better part of a year. The fight will almost surely shatter all existing pay-per-view records and make both fighters a ton of cash, but will the actual fight be any good?
Colin doesn’t think so, primarily because, in order to make it happen, McGregor has foregone any tactical advantage he might have by agreeing to a straight boxing match. It’s like Steph Curry agreeing to a Slam Dunk contest against LeBron James. Both are big names, but you don’t need a crystal ball to predict how it would end.
The same applies to McGregor and Mayweather in a boxing match. It will be a legendary pay day, but a forgettable fight.
