No need to panic over Cavs Game 1 loss to the Pacers
The Cavs turned in a lackluster performance in their Game 1 blowout loss to the Pacers. They were run off the floor and never recovered thanks to Victor Oladipo playing out of his mind, and the Pacers just being more engaged on every level.
Even though Cleveland didn’t show up, Colin still thinks the Cavs will win the series because Victor Oladipo won’t be as dominant, and it would be impossible for the Cavs to play worse.
Ben Simmons is a young Magic
Ben Simmons led the Sixers to an opening round blowout win over the Heat, and Colin thinks it’s already clear that he’s an all-time transcendent talent in the mold of Magic Johnson.
Even though fellow rookies Donovan Mitchell and Jayson Tatum will likely average more points in their career, Colin thinks Simmons can change the game. Like Magic, Simmons is an elite passer who controls the game as a physically imposing 6’10” point guard. He’s also already an elite defender. Scorers come and go, Simmons type talents don’t come around everyday.
