Doug Gottlieb, host of The Doug Gottlieb Show, in for Colin:
NBA players can have successful careers and not win a title
Trail Blazers star point guard Damian Lillard got into a Twitter back and forth with a fan who was encouraging him to jump ship from Portland so he can win a title. Lillard fired back that he would prefer to try to win a title and Portland, or not win one at all.
It’s a contrarian position in the modern of NBA superteams and player movement, but realistically, how many teams are going to have a legitimate shot to win a title? Two, maybe three, for the foreseeable future. For a player like Lillard, it makes more sense to live a great quality of lif in a city like Portland, rather than chase titles for a career.
Don’t hate LaVar Ball for having big dreams
Yesterday, Big Baller Brand released the Lonzo Ball signature Zo2 shoe and was collectively laughed at on Twitter for its $500 price tag. A million Twitter jokes, and countless blog articles later, LaVar Ball’s absurd idea received tens of millions of dollars in free advertising, and dominated a portion of the sports media news cycle.
Even though LaVar Ball gives you a hundred reasons not to like him, don’t hate on the man for having a dream. He’s the mom and pop store trying to fight Walmart.
“If somebody’s not laughing at you your dreams might not be big enough.”
