It’s time to bury the ‘LeBron isn’t clutch’ narrative
Ever since LeBron’s disappearing act against the Mavericks in the 2011 NBA Finals there has been a narrative that he folds in big games. Today, Colin explained why that’s just factually not true and why, after yet another 40+ point Game 7 to advance out of the first round against the Pacers, it’s time to bury the narrative.
The reality is that when comparing LeBron’s last 5 Game 7 to the notoriously clutch Kobe Bryant, LeBron beats him significantly in all major offensive statistical categories. No one ever mentions that Kobe needed Metta World Peace to bail him in Game 7 of the 2010 Finals. It’s time to end the “LeBron isn’t clutch” narrative for good.
The Jets and Cardinals were the biggest winners from the draft
With the NFL Draft in the books, many draft experts are handing out their draft grades. Colin thinks it’s too early to hand out definitive grades for team picks, but he does think the two biggest winners from the draft are the Jets and the Cardinals.
Both teams went into the draft with no clear future at quarterback, and uncertainty they would be able to land a top QB with the 3rd and 10th picks. With some luck, and Cleveland incompetence, both teams are now set up with their QB of the future – Darnold with in New York and Josh Rosen in Arizona – their outlooks have completely changed.
