Cam Newton is defined by inconsistency
Yesterday, Cam Newton walked out of a press conference, only a couple of weeks removed from his viral comments to a female reporter.
Colin has long been critical of Cam for his inconsistent performance on the field – other than the one year he led the Carolina to the Super Bowl – and his emotional inconsistency, showcased in his moody approach with the press.
Colin believes a franchise quarterback needs to always be on an even keel, on the field and off. The best one’s do it, even when things aren’t going their way. Newton still hasn’t shown the ability to do it, and, at this point, Colin doesn’t think he ever will.
Lonzo Ball got the better of John Wall
A Lakers/Wizards game in the first month of the NBA season would usually pass without anyone noticing, but last night’s game between the two teams was a must-watch because of LaVar Ball’s pregame comments and John Wall responding to those comments by saying he would show Lonzo no mercy.
Even though Wall finished with more points than Lonzo, Ball had more assists and rebounds than Wall, and finished with a +13 +/-, compared to Wall’s -14. Most importantly, the Lakers won the game, 102-99.
Colin thinks Lonzo is the obvious winner here, and is delivering so far as a culture changer for the Lakers, in the mold of a Jason Kidd.
