Of course the Spurs have to do business with the Lakers
Today, New York Times NBA writer Marc Stein reported that the Spurs and Gregg Popovich would be willing to deal Kawhi Leonard to L.A. if they had the best trade package. Stein’s scoop only confirmed what Colin has said since the trade demand went public. While many in the media said Pop would never deal Leonard to a conference rival, Colin has maintained that Leonard and his team have played their hand perfectly by demanding a trade to one specific team. With only one year remaining on his contract, Leonard has eliminated the possibility of a deal with any other teams who wouldn’t have any shot to sign him to a long term deal.
While some in the past – see Dwight Howard and Paul George – have bungled their attempted exits from the team that drafted them, Leonard’s plot is the blueprint of how to handle the situation.
Brady’s Oprah/Belichick comments sound like a doomed marriage
In a recent interview with Oprah, Tom Brady was asked to address his relationship with Bill Belichick. After an extra long pause, Brady said he still loved Belichick, even though they don’t agree on everything.
Colin thought the answer sounded like something a person would say immediately before filing for divorce, and sees the end of the Brady/Belichick marriage on the horizon. Belichick and Brady will make it work for this season, but not beyond that.
