The Celtics have the best roster to offer LeBron
With the NBA season wrapped up, LeBron James’ pending free agency decision is far and away the biggest storyline of the young offseason. According to Las Vegas odds and recent reports, the Lakers and Cleveland are currently the frontrunners to land James, but today Colin made the case for LeBron to consider the Celtics.
Colin thinks James joining forces with Brad Stevens and a roster loaded with young talent would easily be better than what all the other suitors can offer. Although a reunion with Kyrie Irving would obviously be awkward considering their fall out in Cleveland, Danny Ainge likely wouldn’t bat an eyelash at trading Irving – who is unsigned after next year – in order to add James to the fold to make an immediate title run.
Belichick is acting like the end is near in New England
In an uncharacteristic move, Bill “No days off” Belichick recently cancelled team OTA’s to give his team a break. Following season that saw Belichick butt heads with everyone from Robert Kraft to Brady’s personal trainer Alex Guerrero, Colin thinks the seemingly small move shows he knows the end of the longest running dynasty in sports is near.
Colin thinks Belichick has stopped sweating the small stuff and focusing on the long term and is focusing on making one last great run with Brady.
