The Celtics won the Kyrie Irving trade, but Cleveland isn’t done dealing
After a month of waiting, the Kyrie Irving trade between the Celtics and Cavs went from rumor to done deal in about an hour, last night. Boston gets Kyrie Irving, and Cleveland gets Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, something named Ante Zizic and the Nets 2018 1st round pick.
Colin thinks Boston won the trade because he believes the team that gets the star always wins the trade, but he doesn’t think the Cavs aren’t done dealing yet in their pursuit to keep LeBron from leaving for L.A. next year, and will use the assets from this trade to flip in another deal in an attempt to convince him to stay.
He sees the Cavs will still win the East this year, but the Celtics should be the Eastern Conference favorites starting in 2019, and go on a 4 or 5 year run as the dominant team in the conference.
UFC’s success is completely dependent on Dana White
Last night, in the midst of the Kyrie Irving trade madness, news broke that Jon Jones tested positive for steroids after his fight against Daniel Cormier, and now faces a possible 4-year suspension, and the UFC loses its best fighter…again.
Colin thinks that the most valuable person in the UFC isn’t a fighter, it’s President Dana White, who has managed to build it into a billion-dollar empire, while constantly replacing stars who flame out by getting beat like Ronda Rousey, or from drug suspension like Jones and Brock Lesnar.
If Roger Goodell left the NFL, it would still continue to function and thrive. If White left the UFC, there are no guarantees it would continue to be nearly as successful as it is now.
