MLB needs to let Bryce Harper be a rockstar
Bryce Harper put on a show at the Home Run Derby last night, and was a rockstar in every sense of the word. Colin isn’t a big home run derby guy, but tuned in to watch Harper and can’t understand why MLB is so overly concerned with baseball traditionalists instead of evolving and providing a more entertaining product.
Harper in the derby is exactly what baseball needs more of to draw in casual fans. Baseball needs to stop fighting it and sit back and enjoy the show.
It’s time for Kobe fans to fully embrace LeBron
LeBron has only been a Laker for a couple weeks, but has already felt the wrath of die-hard kobe fans who would rather trash a street mural proclaiming LeBron is the ‘King of L.A.’ than look at it.
Colin thinks the entrenched Kobe fans need to get on board and embrace the fact that the franchise is relevant again after 5 straight sub .500 seasons. L.A. isn’t Kobe’s town, it’s whoever the biggest star at the time’s town. The Lakers have evolved from Jerry West, to Wilt, to Magic, to Shaq and Kobe, and have embraced each without hesitation. Kobe fans should embrace LeBron now and get over the petty BS. Liking LeBron doesn’t mean having to hate Kobe.
NFL players need to stop dreaming about NBA money
Todd Gurley recently made comments about the disparity between NFL and NBA pay, and Colin thinks he should move on because it’s never happening. NBA salaries are skyrocketing while NFL players are fighting for guaranteed money, but the reality of injuries and the number of players on the roster make it impossible to pay Todd Gurley anywhere near even what Clint Capela will probably get.
Colin understands Gurley’s frustration, but if he wanted NBA money he should have spent more hours working on his J.
