LeBron wins with average, Westbrook can’t win with great
The new look Cavs soundly beat the Thunder last night, and LeBron seems to has so seamlessly adapted to his new teammates that most people think they’re the clear favorite in the East.
With LeBron looking poised to make a title run with teammates he’s had for five minutes, Colin noted that Russell Westbrook continues to struggle to figure out how to win with the significantly better supporting cast of Paul George and Carmelo Anthony.
LeBron is the master of adapting, but Westbrook always forces players to adapt to him. Colin doesn’t think the Thunder will ever seriously contend for championships with Westbrook leading the way and doesn’t get the fawning media obsession.
Green Bay’s Super Bowl window is closed
Green Bay’s season effectively ended when Aaron Rodgers went down with a fractured collarbone, but even with a healthy Rodgers returning next season, Colin thinks Green Bay’s Super Bowl window is closed.
Not only do the Packers have one of the toughest schedules in the NFL, there are teams like the Rams and Eagles that have significantly better, younger rosters that are poised for the foreseeable future.
Aaron Rodgers is a hall of famer, but he’ll end with one ring.
