LeBron should be the MVP every year and the media’s triple double obsession is annoying
Colin has had it with the media and fan obsession with triple doubles this year. It’s an impressive stat, but that’s all it is. Russell Westbrook’s insane amount of triple doubles to the MVP this season. Colin doesn’t understand when triple doubles became the gold standard of measuring player value, and thinks the horse race coverage of the MVP race as ridiculous.
Colin thinks LeBron should be the NBA MVP every year, just like Jordan should have been in his prime. While the analytics crowd is busy having a Westbrook stat-gasm, give Colin LeBron, who’s about to make his seventh trip to the Finals. That’s what matters
“There’s Beyoncé, and there’s everybody else. There’s Jay Z, and there’s everybody else. There’s LeBron, and it’s insulting to bring up anybody else.”
Kentucky stars are NBA underachievers
University of Kentucky Head Coach John Calipari recently said that he could win multiple championships with just his Kentucky guys currently in the NBA. He cited Anthony Davis, John Wall, Boogie Cousins and Devin Booker as some of the players he would boast on his roster.
Colin loves Coach Cal, but he thinks this claim is delusional. While Kentucky is always loaded with talent and high draft picks, he sees one small problem. None of them win in the NBA. The Phoenix Suns have 4 Kentucky guards on their roster (Booker, Bledsoe, Knight and Ulis) and they’re the second worst team in the league. Kentucky players are great, in college. Saying they don’t win in the NBA isn’t controversial, it’s simply stating a fact.
“A team of ex-UK players would be Phoenix. Because he’s got four of them on that roster and they’re unwatchable.”
