With Blake Griffin gone, the Clippers can go all-in on LeBron
Blake Griffin quickly became an NBA fan favorite because of his explosive athleticism and endless stream of highlight dunks, but Colin never bought in. He sees Griffin as a tremendous talent who hasn’t adapted is game to the more perimeter oriented current NBA, and thinks the Clippers were right to trade him to Detroit so they can re-shape their team.
Griffin’s game would have dominated in the 90’s, but the game has changed, and now he’s nothing more than an overpriced, expendable piece. Now the Clippers can aggressively try to pursue difference making free agents, specifically LeBron James.
Malcolm Butler’s interception is the defining play of the Patriot dynasty
New England is headed to it’s 8th Super Bowl of the Belichick/Brady era, and even though there have been many memorable plays, the one Colin feels defines the 17- year dynasty had nothing to do with Tom Brady.
Colin thinks Malcolm Butler’s game-winning, goal line interception in the Super Bowl against Seattle is the hallmark play of the incredible run. It’s the perfect example of preparation meeting situational awareness, leading to a game-deciding play.
Even though Tom Brady is the player that defines the dynasty, this is the one play that perfectly defines it.
