LeBron’s the real MVP
Last night, LeBron James led the largest second half comeback in NBA history, and did it with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love sitting on the bench. It was more evidence of what Colin has been saying all year, LeBron is an exponentially better player than anyone in the league, including Russell Westbrook and his 700 triple-doubles. LeBron’s the real MVP.
Colin has said that Westbrook is a Top-5 player, but in a boring NBA regular season, devoid of compelling storylines, he’s been elevated to James’ level. He’s not close.
Also, Colin doesn’t buy the excuse that Westbrook can’t win in the playoffs because he has no one around him. When James was 23, he took a Cavs team with Sasha Pavlovic, Ira Newble and Larry Hughes to the Finals. Two years ago he extended the Warriors to six games in the Finals with Matthew Dellevadova as a sidekick.
“LeBron’s floor in this league is the Finals, his ceiling is a parade.”
Tim Tebow is getting a harsh lesson in baseball reality
After hitting 2 home runs in 2 games in Single A, Tim Tebow is hitting under .200 and is learning the same hard lesson that Michael Jordan learned when he took a shot at playing professionally. Baseball players are professionals, singularly focused on mastering their trade. You can’t just show up and succeed.
Colin thinks the idea of Tebow dropping into a new sport and thinking he can excel is insulting to the players that have put in the time, and countless hours in hopes of getting a shot at the major leagues. Tebow hasn’t put in the work, and won’t. He doesn’t deserve it.
“He doesn’t deserve to play major league baseball, or be a franchise quarterback.”
