Superteams have killed the NBA Draft
While the NFL Draft is the crown jewel of the NFL offseason, the NBA Draft has lost it’s luster. The days of landing seasoned, pro-ready, immediate impact all-stars that fans already know are gone, and have been replaced by mostly unknown and forgettable one-and-dones that likely won’t have any impact as rookies.
Colin thinks one major cause of the draft’s decline is that era of superteams has made the free agency period a bigger story with a much greater impact on the NBA landscape than the draft. The Draft is now an afterthought.
Jameis Winston shows why maturity matters when drafting a QB
Jameis Winston has suspended for the first three games of the NFL season because of an incident where he allegedly groped an Uber driver. For Winston, it’s just the latest in what has been a string of bad decision making dating back to college. The suspension news is disappointing for Tampa, but hardly surprising.
Colin has often said maturity and decision making is a key component of most successful NFL QB’s in the league today. Winston’s immaturity was no secret coming out of Florida State, but the Bucs took him anyway. Now they’re going to start the year 0-3 and their season is effectively over before it starts.
