Jerry Jones is done caring about the critics, he only cares about winning another ring
Jerry Jones has always been a risk taker, but he’s gone into overdrive over the last several years with the Cowboys. At one point, Jones was concerned about the franchise’s image and shied away from taking risks on players who had off-field issues. Players weren’t getting arrested or suspended during that period, but the Cowboys weren’t contending.
In the last several years, Jones has gone the other direction and taken risks on outcasts like Greg Hardy, Randy Gregory, and other questionable talent. The Cowboys lead the NFL in suspensions and arrests over the last several years, but Dallas is winning in again.
Colin thinks the 74-year-old Jones is at the stage in life where he doesn’t care what outsiders think, and he’s willing to do anything to get another Super Bowl ring, without Jimmy Johnson’s fingerprints on it. He doesn’t care if it takes getting some bad PR to do it.
The Lakers’ roster is exactly what LeBron is looking for at this stage in his career
Kyrie Irving and LeBron James relationship is irreparably damaged and it seems like a certainty he’ll be dealt. While Colin doesn’t think the drama surrounding the situation will impact LeBron’s legacy, the Cavs roster without Irving may.
It’s filled with past their prime players, no legitimate second scorer, and if Irving is traded, LeBron’s goal of playing fewer minutes and resting regularly during the regular season is done. Colin thinks the Cavs having to lean on LeBron at pre-“Decision” levels will end up with James splitting town for the second time for greener pastures.
One roster that would give LeBron everything he is looking for is the Lakers. They have a young roster that would allow him to rest more, including Lonzo Ball, who can be the primary ballhandler which allows James to rest while playing off the ball. The Lakers make more and more sense by the day. Don’t be shocked to see James end up in L.A.
