Dysfunctional Cleveland blew it with LeBron
LeBron is a Laker, and the Cavs are headed back to irrelevance for the foreseeable future. Unlike his first exit, many Cavs fans have been grateful to James for bringing a title to the championship starved, hard-luck city, but Colin thinks their run with James should have been a lot better.
In 11 seasons with the best player on the planet, the Cavs were only able to win one title. Miami and Pat Riley won 2 in only 4 years during their run with LeBron. Ultimately, James time in Cleveland won’t be remembered for the title he won, it will be remembered for dysfunction with a petty owner and a front office that mostly failed to provide James with the supporting cast he deserved. Cleveland blew it with LeBron.
The sky isn’t falling because Boogie Cousins went to the Warriors
Social media was in full outrage mode after it was announced that Boogie Cousins agreed to sign with the Warriors. Many were declaring that the NBA was now ruined and next year was done before 4 months before the start of the season. Colin disagrees.
He thinks the Cousins signing was a smart move by Golden State, but he’s a historically dysfunctional player coming off an Achilles tear that no NBA star player has ever fully recovered from and matched their pre-injury production. Cousins may work out, but he could flame out, too. Colin doesn’t think Golden State is a lock to win it again, in fact, he’s picking the Celtics to beat them in next year’s Finals.
