“Golf guy’s” overreaction to Phil Mickelson is why the sport is in the tank
Over the weekend at the U.S. Open, Phil Mickelson chased down a putt and attempted another putt while the ball was still moving. Mickelson was well out of contention and the move was done semi-jokingly to point out the absurd conditions at Shinnecock Hills. Some people didn’t get the joke.
While many thought it was a relatable, human moment, “Golf guy” predictably overreacted and immediately started with his purist pearl clutching and moral preening. Colin thinks rigid golf die hards are the reason the sport is tank, only being propped up by Tiger Woods. The same people that are outraged over Phil were pushing back against Tiger when he first came on the scene, too. Golf needs to evolve to grow, but it never will.
A LeBron, Kawhi, Paul George Big 3 would make the NBA more competitive
It appears the Lakers have a shot to assemble Big 3 of LeBron James, Kawhi Leonard and Paul George this summer, and if it does happen there will likely be more public outcry that the new superteam would further separate the NBA “haves” from the “have nots.” Colin disagrees.
He thinks the James, Leonard, George trio would be good for the NBA because it would provide a potentially legitimate challenger to the Warriors dominance. Even though fans will overreact if the trio joins forces, the competition at the top will be the best it has been in years, with the LeBron led Lakers and Rockets challenging the Warriors in the West, and the Celtics and Sixers more prepared to seriously contend in the East.
