LeBron over Harden for MVP
The Rockets lead the NBA in wins, and most in the media think that James Harden the clear cut choice for NBA MVP. Today, Colin sized up the MVP race and thinks LeBron should get the nod over The Beard, even if it’s not the “cool” choice.
Not only is LeBron averaging more rebounds, assists, has a better field goal percentage, and is a superior defender than Harden, he’s also currently doing it without a coach and with a roster that was completely overhauled in the middle of the season. LeBron isn’t ashamed to say he should win the MVP. Colin isn’t either, and he doesn’t care what anyone thinks.
NFL replay adds more confusion than clarity
Yesterday, Raiders head coach Jon Gruden said he would be in favor of the NFL eliminating instant replay because slow-motion replay is deceptive and can even make correct calls look questionable. Colin agrees with Gruden and thinks that less replay is better for the game.
Colin believes that replay is used far too often and kills the momentum of a game and that reviewing a play at 1/20 speed distorts the reality of the play that happened rather than clarify it.
