Belichick is catching heat because he’s held to a higher standard
Bill Belichick is getting crushed in Boston for his decision to sit Malcolm Butler in the Super Bowl loss to the Eagles, even though he managed to reach his 8th Super Bowl after losing Julian Edelman before the season and star linebacker Dont’a Hightower for better part of the year.
The impossibly high standard Belichick has set for his team and the New England fanbase is title or bust. The heat Belichick is catching now is a result of it.
For the first time, LeBron looks burnt out
Mid-winter downturns are nothing new for LeBron James and his teams, but every year James turns it on as the playoffs approach and his squad hits stride. Colin thinks this year feels different.
For the first time in his career, LeBron looks and sounds burnt out after 14 years in the NBA spotlight. Colin doesn’t think it’s likely, but he thinks James should consider the possibility of sitting out next year to recharge his batteries and then attack the final years of his career with renewed energy, with another title contending team.
